Oh lordy, it's Trend Watch Wednesday...have you been waiting with bated breath all week long for this? Well, of course you have.
Before we get to the fabulosity that is Marc Jacobs' summer lookbook, let me wish you all a Happy Cinco de Mayo!
You see, prior to about 20 minutes ago when I decided to Google "Cinco de Mayo", I had no earthly idea why we celebrated this day. But any holiday that involves Mexican food, dancing and margaritas is a winner in my book, so I just went with it.
However, according to the always-reliable Wikipedia, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. So there. Don't you feel a bit smarter now?
Anywho, back to TWW...ok, so Marc Jacobs compiled his summer lookbook for Shopbop and frankly, it rocks my world. I mean, I could never wear any of this to the office, but it's fun to dream, right?
The theme was Library Girl, which I thought was pretty appropriate, as so many of you are cramming for finals right now.
The floppy bows, crazy colors, sneakers, nerd glasses...it's so un-sexy, it's sexy.
Notice the heart print tote in the photo below...yeah, I had that on my wishlist earlier this spring and I think after seeing this, I'm going to have to buy it. I'm sorry, I caved. I've never met an overpriced tote I didn't love, ya'll.
I realize it's unlikely that any of us will dress like this any time soon, but if you concentrate on the individual pieces of the outfits, it's totally trend inspiring. For instance, those day-glo bracelets above...yeah, you could totally pair those with a plain burn-out tee, cuffed gladiator sandals and cute denim shorts for a day of running errands.
So yeah, I just thought this was too much fun to pass up.
1) Enjoy your Cinco de Mayo
2) If you feel so moved, wear something crazy to the library. It's cool. Marc Jacobs said so.
Be blessed, lovelies-
