It’s unreal how hot it is on the East Coast right now. When a girl wakes up into 53% humidity, the only standard, it seems, when picking out an outfit, is choosing something that allows for the least amount of fabric touching the skin as appropriately possible. (And no, the Angel Handbag headquarters don’t allow for bathing suits. For now, anyways.)
Nonetheless, a weather report that might as well read “swamp conditions” shouldn’t stop a fashionista from expressing herself. Take a look at this adorable Italian, who, despite living in a balmy enough Mediterranean climate that allows for a cardi (!!!) in July, provides lady-like inspiration for the rest of us summer girls. Boldly combining an airy yellow dress and blue shrug, she keeps her accessories neutral with a brown belt, brown shoes, and gray bag. And how cute is that ponytail? Heed her example and pull your brightest brights from your closet while anchoring their hues with go-with-anything accessories.
A natural choice is the Elliott Lucca Venezia Drawstring Pouch. Oh my, how we love this bag, in all it’s buttery soft, scrunched and woven leather glory. The pale bisque color offsets the exquisite details, allowing the features of the pouch and your outfit to shine. Can’t you just see yourself, wearing your favorite a-line sun-dress and big sunnies, swinging this baby at your side? Pack a hanky in the one of the convenient inner pockets and it’s almost like you’re… well, cool. Almost.
