So I know you might be saying to yourself, "Who is Meredith Melling Burke?" She's actually someone you are closer to than you even know! If you're an avid VOGUE reader like me...Meredith is one lady telling you what to wear next. She's their Senior Market Editor and has impeccable taste and killer style! Her wardrobe is drool-worthy (yes, I'm sure much of it is free or borrowed) but STILL!!! She puts pieces together that even I have not thought to do, as of yet. Let's take a close look at the collage above and let me tell you WHY I love me some Meredith Melling Burke...and her ensemble choices!
Moving right along, going left to right, top to bottom...let's get down to the nitty gritty, shall we? MAXI DRESS, leather bomber and a SKINNY BELT...love it! TURQUOISE scarf paired with a STRIPED shirt and WIDE-LEG white trousers is a sweet spin on Spring's nautical trend. The LONG VEST and champagne gown are a gorgeous combo for any soiree. Lastly, on the top row, another maxi dress paired with the Cali-cool SCARF...tres chic!
Row two starts of really strong with an OVERSIZED blazer and blue maxi...and are those GLADIATORS I see peeking out underneath? Me thinks so. The pretty, preppy and equestrian themed ensemble is next - FULL SKIRT and BELTED is positively adorable on her slender frame.
The next two looks on the second row are polished, pretty and FLORAL. In the first, my eyes are drawn to her SKINNY BELT and BOLD ACCESSORIES with the second look just showing that Burke is NOT afraid to take a daring fashion "chance" every once in a while! (PS - She got a ton of slack for this one, though.)
Only four more to go...please tell me you are you taking notes? Hope so! Ahhhhh, the next LADY-LIKE ensemble is one I just adore. It's perfect for lunching with the ladies or church-going with R.D. Hubby. The BIG FLORAL print and killer shade of GREEN create a perfect Spring/Summer palette.
Up next, I'm positive you know where I'm going with this one...PATTERNED TIGHTS and STRAP-HAPPY PLATFORMS take this whole look to another level. Burke looks adorable in her CROPPED grey jacket and blush pink dress. How about that STATEMENT NECKLACE around her neck too? Love it.
Lastly...I just wanted to show Meredith Melling Burke in a long black skirt and T-shirt combo! Her tight ponytail and perfect makeup make this one of the EASIEST 'to-do' looks from this entire collage. Remember, T-shirts are so chic and an easy thing to mix with high/low items and even for fancy Galas...they are still a "do!"
It's Monday and I had a fabulous weekend...so I'll do you ONE MORE FAVOR! I've added some speedy-savvy-stylin' below for your ultimate viewing pleasure. All items are pieces that are inspired by Meredith Melling Burke's wardrobe essentials. All pieces are under $50 so if you adore her looks as much as I do...no excuse to add an itty-bitty M.M.B. to your own personal wardrobe! My fave pieces from the grouping that would totally be added into constant rotation if I owned them all? I can honestly say, "Every...single...last...one! Yep, ALL fourteen pieces!"
