Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

Turn some heads this weekend

The most memorable complement I've ever gotten was from a completely decked out drag queen who hollered, "You work it, girl!" across Essex Street in the LES. Not only is it totally flattering to get a thumbs up from someone who looks fabulous, but she might have been the only persuasion I wasn't trying to impress that night. So you'd better believe I'm going to pick out my outfit carefully tomorrow, what with the Boston Gay Pride Parade setting up right in front of my living room window!

An outfit like this would be perfect for holding your own with the parade attendees. The dress-over-jeans look is getting a bit tired, but the dress-over-tight-long-shorts is utterly hot. I also think shorts like these are SUCH a better pairing with a dress or tunic than leggings (I really wish that women would realize you need to have both the perfect body and the perfect outfit to pull off leggings.) Plus, wearing a dress with these shorts is a way to buy into the whole dress season thing without looking like a fashion zombie. Add some wooden sunglasses, vegan sandals and a recycled bag, and you might turn some heads you weren't expecting to notice you at all.

Topshop Fairtrade Tunic $64, Loomstate Knee Length Shorts $100 from $119, iWood Style 314 Sunglasses $350, Stella McCartney Wooden Sandals $360 from $450, Gecko Traders Recycled Wave Tote $36. Plus you can't see it, but tossed in that fantastically large bag is a TranquiliT 4-in-1 Cardi Shawl because it's going to be a bit chilly.
