with commentary from Editor Marcie Everhart
A heavenly blue print in a wide-legged pant is grounded by a strong earthy brown, faux suede, fringed jacket and matching belt, metal accents, and a deep-blue gazing crystal of a necklace you want to get lost inside. The belt buckle is the metal anchor for all this graceful swing and flow.
Both the whimsical, blue curlicue pant and fringed jacket can be purchased online at the Show Me Your MuMu website here.
Both the white blouse and wide suede belt are Zara, but the blouse is no longer available online. An interesting option is this one for $69, which has a built-in round metal ring centered on the body which could serve visually as the same anchor for a flowy palazzo pant, but worn untucked.
Here’s another pretty option for $39, with covered buttons for less distraction.
The special edition 100 percent leather suede belt can be purchased online here for only $39.
The lace-up suede wedges are Eileen Fisher and no longer available online through the brand website, but you might be able to find them in out-of-the-way places like this.
Zappos made a youtube video promoting the shoe here:

Palazzo pants can be found in any store at any price point now, and the look can be recreated with any print and any short jacket, accessorized with your funky necklaces you already own and love. But an airy blue/ earthy brown combo is especially arresting.

A Little Background Music
EDITOR: I love this song with this post because it’s so dreamy, a lush orchestral swell, and my imagination does take flight when I see how Shelley puts clothes together. She’s a skillful artist working with color, print, line, drape, and texture, who creates fashion-art real women can actually duplicate. It’s interesting how Shelley is able to take exciting, fun pieces marketed to a younger demographic and claim them for the more self-assured, discreet, mature woman. This song is like this outfit – groovy yet grown-up, smooth and chill.
