A Memorable Weekend And A New Look
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day Weekend. For me it was an extra special long weekend as my son graduated from USC on Friday with a double major in business and real estate development, so I couldn’t have asked for a better Mother’s Day gift!
There were multiple graduation ceremonies across campus that all started early Friday morning with his actual graduation ceremony taking place at the Galen center from 11am – 2pm. Afterwards we went on campus to take photos with family and friends. Then around 5pm we attended a special dinner event to celebrate again with all of his friends and their families at the “Otium Restaurant” on hope street in downtown LA . It was such a wonderful and memorable occasion, It was so very special and emotional, I am so proud of him and his accomplishments but most of all I am so proud of the wonderful young man he has turned out to be.
He is home now for a week and then he and a few of his closest friends are traveling throughout Asia for 3 weeks as a graduation gift which I am sure will be a lot of fun and a great experience for him.
Now for today’s look, I have a couple of new items to debut that I am very excited about. The first one is our White Cascading Collar Jacket with Lace Trim which is a beautiful piece for spring and summer. It is made out of a soft rayon fabric and decorated in a beautiful lace trim. The asymmetrical body is semi shaped with the back slightly shorter than the front. This is a great go-to jacket to throw over any top or even a dress.
The second new item is our Coral White Stripe Cold Shoulder Jersey Top, which looks perfect with this jacket. The top is made out of a nice soft rayon lycra jersey, with a slightly A line body and cold shoulder details. The coral white color combo is a pretty color way for spring and summer that you can wear for many occasions.
Since the color story for today was based around coral and white, I decided to throw in our Coral Jersey Ruffle Top as well, which I first styled for you here. This is a beautiful and feminine piece and it has been a best-seller for us. We only have a few pieces left in this top. If you like it now would be the best time to grab one. I have done a “half tuck in” with both tops but you can see the length of each top from my side view pics or our store photos.
As for jewelry, I added our Gunmetal Bead and Pearl Y Necklace with Crystal Pendant which looks great with both tops and the jacket. I wore all these pieces with my black skinny jeans, sandals, bag and belt.
