Style blogger Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific is our go-to girl for all things lady-like. She embodies the Neiman Marcus style in an effortless, sophisticated way, and let’s just say she owns many a street-style blogger trends – oversized sunglasses at all times of the day, Chanel brooches and full skirts, anyone?
Having mastered the full-skirt look already, this summer she takes the silhouette to the next level with St. John’s “Origami” skirt and pairs it with an asymmetric crop top and perfectly chic accessories that include an Hermes cuff and Gianvito Rossi “Mary Jane” pumps. Eadie proves that black is also a summer color and that a red pout can go a long way. Now, take cue from Eadie’s 10 alternatives to a formal-affair look below. We are adding some to our shopping carts as we speak!
Ladder-Strap Mary Jane Pump
A great pair of high heel pumps to wear, from a formal affair to a casual outing.
Long-Sleeve Net Lace Midi Cocktail Dress
While I typically perfect a more feminine, soft look this dress is the perfect balance of femininity and modern edge.
Jean Striped Box Clutch
The perfect companion for a night out - a box clutch in a chic stripe.
Rockstud Tonal Patent Ballerina Flat
A pair of fun flats are such a comfortable alternative to heels when I am just not in the mood.
Lace-Collar Pullover Sweater & Feather Miniskirt
Festive skirts are starting to overrun my closet - they are such a nice alternative to a traditional dress.
Halcyon Strapless Cropped Taffeta Jumpsuit
Jumpsuits are the new cocktail frock.
Grace Crystal Statement Earring Cuff
On a hot summer night I usually have my hair up - which is the perfect complement to an amazing ear cuff.
Two-Finger Golden Love Ring
When wearing a simple LBD, I look for statement pieces that have personality to dress up my look.
Amazing Grace Nail Lacquer
Deborah Lippmann is one of my favorite polishes, and nine times out of ten I am wearing Amazing Grace.
Simona Jacquard Peplum Top & Cross-Pleat Skirt
Matchy, matchy - this look is perfect for a summer soiree, but when the party's over both pieces have so many possibilities to mix and match.
