Did someone say beach? It was very likely me who uttered the magic word. I am so ready for the shore and sea after what very well has felt like the longest winter known to man (and Snob) since the Ice Age. I’m really not exaggerating – we had golf ball-sized hail strike Dallas in April!
Leave it to our trusted Nancy Gonzalez to help us set the possibility of an impending apocalypse aside and focus on the leisure-filled task at hand: summer! When you think hot sand between your toes, crocheted swimsuits (if that’s your thing), and floppy sunhats, crocodile might not instantly come to mind, but let’s be real. Croc is just about always lovely – in the right hands, that is – but Nancy executes it with a level of intricacy that is unsurpassed. Her woven crocodile is as decadent as exotic gets, and juxtaposed against 90° temperature-ready canvas, such sophisticated attention to detail feels fresh and youthful. My hubby collects complicated watches (not to mention his very complicated wife); I prefer collecting intricately designed bags. Especially when it comes to heralding a new season! Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile totes at Neiman Marcus.
Pair with: Speaking of floppy sun hats, this would look chic set against Stella McCartney’s bold (and protective) woven straw visor. The wide brim gives you an extra sense of confidence. On NET-A-PORTER for $530.
Nancy Gonzalez fans unite: you can meet the designer herself at North Park Neiman Marcus today, Thursday, April 10th, from 1:30 -3:30.
