Fashion Friday: Beautiful Beige

I went all-color for my previous Fashion Friday, but this week I’m feeling the beige.  Often stereotyped as boring, a palette of subtly varied beiges can be romantic and classy.  I love pairing bright red lips with such ensembles to provide a pop of color (Chanel is my favorite).  Many women are afraid of red lips, but the bold color is guaranteed not to look tarty on a background of beige.

My weekend plans involve biking, picture-taking, reading, and brunching with my women.  Maybe I’ll look half as put together as my style collage.  :)  What’s on your agenda?

Vintage dress, vintage camera, Breukelen from Bowery Lane Bikes (love the wood crate!), Yakkay helmet, Kate Spade sunglasses, KORS shoes, Chloe bag, Chanel lipstick.

P.S. HAPPY JUNE!

    Lovely collection! I like that you included a helmet in the mix. Clarins makes a RED RED RED Lipstick that is just the right shade for summer.
    I also like dresses from Carve Designs of California. They specialize in surfwear but their dresses do very well for cycling as they are quick drying and light. Put on a Mesh Liner by Terry underneath and you have a comfortable but light chamois for your ride.

      I was going to say! That dress is soooooo nice  - too bad it’s vintage otherwise I would probably be clicking ‘add to cart’!

        I know, me too! I found the photo on an online vintage shop, but the dress was already sold. Tragic!

    When I see elegant and interesting neutrals like this I always think of you! You wear them well. Nice collection.

    I do not look good in beige, but admire those who can pull it off. It’s an elegant look.

    Too cute! I am sure I’ll be biking around NYC somewhere this weekend on my Raleigh Space Rider. Now I need a new beige dress for my adventure!
