Not Your Grandmother’s Crochet Needle

I’m sure we all have that sweater, pair of socks, or scarf that our grandmas knitted us when we were young, but this hot summer trend doesn’t come from your granny’s crochet needle! I’m loving the new hippie chic crochet style pieces in stores right now. I just received the cute neon green crochet TOMS slip-ons from their summer collection, in the mail today. They are bohemian and breezy and I think definitely obsession worthy! Check out the spring, summer, and resort collections of your favorite designers, there are most likely some crochet inspired pieces. You can find this trend in tons of different items like jewelery, clothing, hair accessories, and hats. It’s absolutely on point for summer!

Daily Obsession for May 12, 2011

The moment I saw this jacket I was obsessed! Being hot pink fuchsia, it’s an updated interpretation of the classic blazer. It has a slightly relaxed style, yet it’s still tailored for a feminine fit. Rebecca Minkoff has always been known for her edgy yet elegant handbags, though recently she has expanded her designs to apparel and shoes. My favorite thing about her pieces is that she always picks the most luxurious materials, fabrics, and textures. The Becky Jacket is right on cue being made of a sumptuous silk crepe, which is one of my absolute favorite fabrics to wear. I think this piece is the perfect little jacket for a summer night out. If you love this blazer as much as I do, you can find it at saks.com or rebeccaminkoff.com. You can pair it with a cute summer dress or even a tied silk blouse and skinny jeans.
