Summer Style from Matilda Jane

hello lovely from Matilda Jane

Black, black and more black. It’s easy as a New Yorker to fall into a rut of drab colors. Our city is pretty dirty, but I refuse to give in. I want fashion that makes me feel good. Heck, I’ve got a hi-tech washer and tons os stain remover. I want wearable fashion that’s practical and pretty. That’s why I’m loving this outfit Matilda Jane Clothing.

Years ago I went to my first Matilda Jane trunk show in Brooklyn, I bought a bunch of outfits for the girls. The quality was gorgeous and the clothes got worn, loved, passed down and then shared with a friend. That good.

Matilda Jane for Women

Now, fast forward a few years and I’m discovering the collection for myself. The collection for women still focuses on prints and whimsy, but in a sophisticated way. The Hello Lovely t-shirt has been an absolute favorite this summer. The cotton jacket is perfect for travel (note the contrast trim on the collar) and the swingy skirt is cool and perfect for dressing up or down.

Here’s how it works–the fashion comes to you. Twice yearly, Matilda Jane Clothing introduces new lines. The clothes are available exclusively from “Trunk Keepers” and can be ordered by attending (or hosting) an in-home Trunk Show, or by directly contacting a Trunk Keeper.

    • momtrends

      Booties are so versatile and I liked that they were in the same color scheme as the bag. I also think booties are perfect with this style and length.
