when the temps heat up it’s time to cool down. nothing beats those summertime temps better than linen. but if we’re headed to the office or a board meeting we still want to look crisp and chic. enter a summer pinstripe suit perfect for business casual attire. this snazzy number is from luxury brand Lafayette 148. recently, i partnered with Lafayette on their #unordinarywomen campaign to raise money for a non-profit organization “She’s the First” that supports girls’ education around the world. for every #unordinarywomen hashtag, Layfayette 148 will donate $10 to “She’s the First.” the campaign runs through May 31st so run over to my Instagram account tag a woman you want to honor and hashtag #unordinarywomen. there’s nothing dearer to my heart than raising money for education. knowledge is the key that unlocks the world.
Lafayette 148 New York is women’s fashion brand based in NYC but available in luxury retailers Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s. the brand was created in 1996 and is now headquartered in the Brooklyn Navy Yard with their own workshop and production facility. it’s a rarity in the fashion world to find a brand that combines concept, design, and production under one roof. and i applaud them for that feat.
Lafayette 148 combines trends and classics. wide leg linen pants have a fresh take on summer pinstripe trousers. a pinstripe blazer is exchanged for a summer pinstripe vest. add a cotton tank and you have a thoroughly modern ensemble. good news! it’s on sale at Neiman Marcus.
can you believe we’re headed into memorial day weekend? you know what that means, besides barbecues and lounging by the pool? yes, the sales have begun! i’ve rounded up a few favorite brands for you.
