Well hello from Italy! We’ve just had a whirlwind trip through London / Berlin, and now we’re in Rome for Way Up North. I’m going to be speaking here tomorrow, so it’s time to throw this post up so I can go review my notes before go time 😉
PS : I brought these pants on the trip and they are my new favorite travel pants!
I’m not really a sporty girl, and maybe this look isn’t really that sporty… but let’s just say, it gets awfully close, and I kinda like it. In this week’s Two Girls, One Kit, both Anne and I style the same pair of pants in our two very different ways. Here’s the lowdown:
The Amazing: Ruti is not just a brand, but a woman! After moving to the States from Tel Aviv, Ruti realized the thing she loved most was fashion. (I hear you, girl!) While totally contemporary, Ruti’s collections reference her Israeli roots with a whole new chic and modern spin. Anne and I got to meet her when we stopped in one of her stores, and it is such a joy to know the gal behind the garments!
My take: if I’m wearing black pants, I have to incorporate color + texture somehow, right? Ruti’s Siam Blouse in Orchid Haze brought just enough pep to my step! Throw on my favorite vintage jean jacket for a bit of ‘rough’ to the silky pants’ ‘smooth’ and I am a happy gal.
I’m a huge fan of Keds and their #ladiesfirst collection, (and not just because I got to shoot some of it with Create & Cultivate’s 100!) and I love a good triple-high sneaker, so these crispy clean beauties are my favorite nod to Pam Beesley and her Dundie.
It’s a look I’d wear out for a summer picnic, a hike, a coffee date… or even to fly a long distance in! You absolutely can’t be more comfortable than this.
And here we go again with kinda the same, but different…
Anne’s spin: went down the same sneakers’n’jacket road, but went with some mix’n’match patterns thanks to that tote and Ruti’s Striped Ruby Top. Can you ever, ever go wrong with a striped top? I submit that it might be the timeless piece of clothing that can just never get phased out.
We’ll be back more next Tuesday with another outfit done two different ways! xo
