Runway to Street

It's not so difficult to resist wearing white before Memorial Day, when yellow and black are such simple and chic substitutes. This look from Elie Saab is easy to recreate, and is the perfect way to embrace summer, without overcommitting to it. 

1) Carnaby Carryall, J. Crew: $250
2)Beaded Metallic Floral Top, Forever 21: $24.80
3)Blythe Black Shorts,$39.95
4)Guess Pumps, $221.00

This look from Etro is for the girl, whom I like to call Urban Bohemian; artistic and romantic, but also driven and practical. There are certainly many of these types on Princeton's campus, and though this look is a little expensive to emulate, the bold statement it makes is well worth the price. 
1) Olive Lace Trim Corduroy Jacket, $47.35, on sale
2) Diesel Balboa Bag, Urban Outfitters:$175
3) Gold Triple Hoop Drop Earrings, $198
4) Eyelet Mini Skirt, Wetseal: $19.50
5) Flower and Animal Print Chiffon Silk Long Scarf,$55
6) Tan Paisley Shoe, $79

Though I thought Princeton had exhausted my tolerance for orange, Hermes has managed to spice it up again, using purple as an accent color. I love this Spring look; not only is it comfortable, but it is also extremely versatile-perfect for either a picnic or a night out. 

1) Crescent Doctor Bag, Urban Outfitters:$39.99
2)Bright Colored Hot Short, Wet Seal: $16.50
3)BCBG Women's Sandy High Heel Peep Toe,$99.99
4)Orange Polo, Hollister:$29.50
5) Faux Suede Braided Belt, $10
6) Shirred Tunic Tee, Newport News:$29.00
