I'm hosting the Brooklyn opening of the new Splendid store on Saturday. Our hip, little center of the universe definitely needed this infusion of California cool. I've been a long-time fan of Splendid fashions for me and my girls. The clothes are so wearable, soft and always on trend.
I needed an outfit to host so I picked this dress from the Splendid website (find similar here about $128). I love the casual feel--but it's also polished enough to wear to work or an event. These clothes really work for women that have a relaxed style, but who want to look great no matter what they are doing--from school drop off, to meetings, to lunch with friends.
Splendid started out making tees and the specialty is cotton, one touch of this dress and you'll know why I love it. Cute and comfy. Score!
I paired it with gold loafers I've had for a few seasons, but I know I'll be wearing this with boots as the weather gets cooler. Then I added a Ralph Lauren belt and a statement necklace from Stella & Dot called Spring Awakening ($128)
