Nude... Or Ivory for those of us that take a bit longer to acquire that perfect sexy summer tan. (I am raising my hand, ha!) No, but seriously my darling lovers, it is time to begin collecting all of our nude, tan, and ivory wardrobe pieces for the spring and summer months. Gah, it's May already! This trend is my absolute favorite that has popped up this season. As I said in my latest "shoot of the day" post, nothing is sexier than an all white ensemble with a perfect sun kissed tan! I have spent days stalking all of my favorite websites to find the perfect key nude pieces and I think I have gathered quite an impressive collection for us all to refer to! I have covered tops, silk blouses, dresses, shorts, mini skirts, jeans, harem pants, bathing suits, cropped tanks, turbans, lingerie, sunglasses, maxi skirts, pumps, sandals, oxfords, handbags, accessories, gowns... you name it. It is all here and it is ALL NUDE! Let's get started, shall we? My list is long, but there were just soooo many incredible pieces that I had to share with you guys! Let me know which piece is your favorite! Hope you're all having a good week so far! Hugs and kisses!
Cacharel Silk Crepe Collar, $350. With a perfectly tanned tummy. Ugh, to die for!
The perfect length for a cropped collared tank!
Opening Ceremony Battenburg Lace Crop Top, On sale for $172.50 from $345. Um, what a steal?! Paired with little light washed cut off jean shorts and oxfords? I can't take it.
Elizabeth and James Hazel Lizard Effect Wedge Sandal, $295. So yes, just the straps are nude here, but these are ultra sexy. I had to include them! Also prices for sandals have sky rocketed this season and these aren't too bad! They also look super comfy!
Alexander McQueen Faithful De-Manta Leather Tote, $1115. The perfect ivory summer bag. Enough said.
3.1 Phillip Lim Fold Over Crepe Shorts, $275. These would be the cutest, most comfortable throw on shorts for the whole season! A must!
Lanvin Metal Cuffed Leather Sandal, $785. So expensive, it's depressing... I know. But for real, these are beyond gorgeous. That hint of metal-ish gold at the ankle is just killer. These would add an edge to any outfit without the discomfort of a heel! They are utter perfection.
M Missoni Crochet Knit Pant, $725. Perfect for everyday, perfect for brunch, perfect for dinner with pumps, brilliant for travel, perfect to sleep in!!! Gah, these seriously are the cutest little things I have EVER SEEN!!!!!
Look at them on! Ahhhhh! Imagine them worn with the Cacharel Collared Crop Tank I first posted up top? Sick!
3.1 Phillip Lim Sash Collar Silk Chiffon Blouse, $375. Ladylike and timeless. All of us need a blouse like this in our wardrobe.
So sweet on.
Chloe Whipstitch Leather Dress, $3,135. Ok, I seriously may need to save my precious little pennies for this piece. I don't know the last time I have been this obsessed with a dress. I have been dreaming about it. Can someone please agree that this is the sickest thing they have ever seen?! Look at the stitching around the collar and sleeves!!! I normally don't like leather dresses as they come across a little trashy to me when they are black, but this gorgeous buttery nude leather is so chic!!!
The length is so hot! Ahhhh! And just enough flair. Omg, I can't. even. c.o.m.m.e.n.t.
Robert Clergerie Wilma Oxfords, $595. Ya know how some things are just perfectly nerdy? This shoe falls right under that category. These shoes would only be for the seriously experimental fashionista. I know Lize and I would die for these.
Jenny Packham Feather Trimmed Silk Chiffon Slip, $805. Be still my heart! I rarely go for the sexy look, but this slip is the most perfectly constructed hot little number that I have laid eyes on in years!!!! I MUST OWN THIS!
Carine Gilson Egerie Silk Satin Balconette Bra and High Waisted Underwear, $645 and $525. I know a lot of people don't like the look of high waisted briefs, but Lize and I have been obsessed with them for quite some time now. When you have a tiny little waist, it is actually really flattering to have a brief come up to your little ribs. Honestly, don't knock it till you try it!
The detailing is unreal.
This set would work perfectly under all of these clothes! That little hint of black detail peeking through would be insanely sexy!
Elizabeth and James Salvia Silk Crepe Handkerchief Dress, $545. For my simple 9 to 5 working ladies. This is a perfect day to night dress. Throw some killer pumps in the trunk of your car in the morning, pop em' on after work with a pink lipstick, a bronzer, and your good to go! Your tan will do the rest of the work for you!
Lover Tapered Silk Track Pants, $400. These might be in my top three favorite pieces here. I would get SO much wear out of these. They would go with virtually everything in my closet. Not to mention they look incredibly comfortable. I may need to snatch these!
Just the perfect amount of drop in the crotch and just baggy enough! I love these! Agh! Worn with flat sandals, pumps, or wedges. You really could not go wrong. I would die to wear these with the ivory 3.1 Phillip Lim Blouse and the Lanvin Metal Sandals. Can you stand it?
Kelly Bergin Leather Mini Skirt, $430. This one really hurts my feelings. I don't think I have ever loved a leather skirt so much. With a tan... Can you imagine how unreal this skirt would make your legs look??? Need this NOW.
This whole outfit is perfection. I love how they have shown this!!! I'd trade the pumps out for the Elizabeth and James Lizard Wedge Sandals though.
Paul & Joe Sister Elfe Silk Crepe Top, $200. This top can be dressed up or down. A perfect basic with a little bit of flare. Lize and I are suckers for anything with a puff sleeve.
Love it paired with leather. I would do this in a heartbeat.
Missoni Pastel Patterned Bikini, $305. This truly is not a bad price considering how long they last. I have watched Liza literally abuse her collection of Missoni bikinis for years, and there still isn't one little thread out of place. She wears the daylights out of them. I love this color. So sexy. Lize, I say we get matching ones.
Valentino Lace and Satin Platform Pump, $795. Just had to throw these in my list so we can all cry and mourn together. Lace on a pump is hard to pull of without looking trashy and these are absolutely elegant! I would wear these with every frock I own for spring/summer!
Erickson Beamon Je T'Aime 22 Karat Gold Plated Necklace, $1,095. I want to make something like this. I am inspired!!! I obviously can't splurge like this on just a necklace, so I am just going to have to make it!
The length is perfect!
J Brand 901 Mid-Rise Tan Skinny Jean, $165. The perfect tan pant. This is a must have for all of us! Imagine them paired with a coral top!
Sandro Jarod Pleated Chiffon Maxi Skirt, $335. I had to include a nude maxi skirt since they are hugely trendy at the moment. I personally love the pleating on this little baby.
Opening Cermeony Nude Turban, $130. Lize and I have been wearing turbans since 2007 when she lived in LA with me for a few months. I actually vividly remember going to a party and group of people yelling to us, "It's not Halloween!" Liza was wearing her red Prada turban that night. Offended and always being the more "mouthy" one of the two of us, I quickly quipped back, "Yeah, well when you get permission from Vogue in five years to wear turbans, you'll remember where you first saw it , _______ (fill in the blank)." Hahahaha. And here we are, year 2011 and everywhere you turn, we are seeing girls don turbans! This one in particular is stunning because it will go with any hair color! I love it! We all need this for the summer!
The fold in the front is so cute. I love that it is a full turban and not just a headband "called a turban". This is the real deal. It would look darling with a messy fishtail braid coming out the side.
Cacharel Cutler & Gross Circular Lens Sunglasses, $525. I have yet to get my hands on a pair of Cutler & Gross sunglasses. As you can see, they cost some serious dollars. They are so classic though and I would love to own a pair. Oh, one day. For the moment, these get my vote for best pair of ivory sunglasses for spring/summer.
Alexander McQueen Silk Satin Organza Gown, $12,395. (Yeah, you read the price right.) Alright, alright... I know I am engaged and I am always feeling a little wedding-ish, but I HAD TO SHOW YOU GUYS THIS DRESS!!!!!!! I literally started tearing up when I saw it. It is so beautiful. I already have my wedding dress and it is perfection, but this one must be discussed and drooled over because it is exquisite. If Kate Middleton was more of a fashionista, she would have been killer in this gown.
I cannot deal with how it is short in the front!! It makes it so so so modern and sexy!
The train and the knot?! Omg, kill me! Time to go do a little work on my wedding planning... this dress is getting me in the mood!!!
