As we inch (at what feels like a snail's pace) toward the long weekend, we're ironing out our social schedule leading up to Memorial Day. We're planning to milk those three days for all they're worth: Barbecues, cocktails, and outdoor gatherings are already on the books, but what to wear? To pick an outfit that transitions smoothly from one event to the next, let's let Olivia Palermo serve up some sartorial inspiration. Palermo was hostest with the mostest at a Jimmy Choo tea party, celebrating the brand's Choo Hound collection. (Unfortunately, her own pooch, Mr. Butler, did not make an appearance.) However, Olivia boiled her style down to pieces with the utmost versatility: A crisp, white blazer dressed up her boyfriend jeans for a more put-together affair, but could be taken off for casual drinks afterwards. She coordinated the blue stripes in her top to the blue (but contrasting) pattern on her toes, and topped it all off with embellished cat-eye sunglasses. Don't dread the overstuffed iCal. This weekend's back-to-back gatherings are nothing more than an opportunity to channel your inner Olivia. Here's how:
