Reader Style: Gold Saltwaters and Rose-Colored Denim




My friend Marcia showed up wearing the cutest baby.

Oh, and her outfit was pretty great, too.



Marcia’s one of those bad-ass nursing types who can discreetly lift a tshirt.  Obviously, this isn’t her first rodeo.  (THIRD, in fact.)




Thanks to Marcia, I’m now obsessed with the rose-denim-and-gold combo, and if anyone’s made a better case for saltwater sandals, I’ve yet to see it.  ALSO NO THANKS to Marcia my baby-fever is at an all-time high.  Time for a dog.  #hahano

Lastly, Marcia has a genius trick for finding aviators that fit her smaller face:  look in the kid’s department.  She’s actually wearing Ray-bans Juniors.  LOVE.



Outfit Details:

top:  Banana Republic Linen Boatneck Tunic (on sale!) – if the sale one is sold out, Banana also has it in brown.  (I’m obsessed with BR’s linen tees.)

jeans: old, Gap (long gone) but Mavi has a similar pair

sandals: Saltwater Sandals for Women in gold (Marcia has a matching pair for Ada, her eldest daughter)

necklace: Stella & Dot Charm Necklace

sunglasses: Ray-Ban Junior Aviators


Marcia, you babe, thanks for being such an amazing sport.  Play-date-n-drinks soon, I hope.




    • Yes!!! I second that!

      I likes seeing this picture of Saltwater sandals up close and personal. Honestly, I’ve thought they were kind of ugly and that the shape would not work at all on my size 11 boats. But now I’m reconsidering. #Shoppingenabling

  1. I have a pair of navy Saltwaters I love and have worn the heck out of for the last two years. I keep eyeing the gold ones but then back off because I’m worried they might be too Palm Beach grandma. Marcia made me think again though because they look great on her!

  2. Marcia is gorgeous and I love the outfit. I have the SWS’s (in tan) thanks to you, Shana, and I adore them. They are just super cool & so comfortable. And what is more fun than matching shoes with your little boy, as I’ve done with these tan SWS’s?!

  3. Can you give any suggestions for that rose color in a tee? (Like, a comfy, linen, vneck, not a girly, too tight creweck) LOVE the gold with that color. (Avoiding words like mauve and dusty rose. Those take me back to middle school. And are too gray;)) I make jewelry with chunky, natural stones and gold chains. Would be a great combo with distressed jeans…ENABLER!!!

  4. I feel so honored! And the readers’ comments are so sweet – you all made my day. Shana, way to create such a mom-positive site. Your humor and honesty are addictive (tried to quit to cut down on screen time, but I can’t!). Drinks and a play date sound great ;).
