This perfect summer ensemble is perfectly Daisy Buchanan. July 12, 2012 09:31 3 Comments

She's not the country club type. Not one bit. But. Her nouveau riche sister? Now, that is a different story. So. This Sunday, after church, she's going to tag along with her sister and her brother-in-law to brunch among the privileged set. Brunch only, though. No golf. No tennis. No bridge. After she's chewed the last morsel, she's going to make like a cheerleader and split. For the movies.

A lilac tee. And she'll lace up those nifty Seychelles Private Eye oxfords, too. She's going to channel Daisy Buchanan. Perhaps she'll meet her Nick.
