Slide into Summer

IMG_1344It’s officially Summer! What could be easier than to slide into your next favorite sandal. As you can see from my round-up, I’m mostly going for flats. Which is really how I live. I like to be able to make tracks when I need to, and flat sandals afford me that freedom. That being said, you gotta go for heels every now and then. And my block heel option gives your legs that lift while allowing you true walkability.

Feeling Kind Of Blue

IMG_0084It may be May, but temps here in JC are still on the chilly side. That’s when a jean jacket becomes my day-into-night go-to. This one is by a Earl, a now defunct brand, and is at least 10 years old. I loved it the first day I wore it, and I love it even more all these years later. The fitted cut and dark wash create a more sophisticated, less slouchy silhouette. To keep it fresh, I like to add pins and buttons collected on trips and vintage trawls. Museum shops are great sources, too.

Pops of Pink & Blue

IMG_0199Since it’s going to hit the 70s this week, I’ve made the executive decision to ignore any remnants of winter’s chill and break out the Spring style. I even got a pedicure in celebration of peep toe possibilities. Full disclosure: Chris was wearing a down jacket and hat while he snapped these pics. The things we do for fashion!

I love how this fuzzy wuzzy bomber jacket balances whimsy and warmth. And it will be a fun outerwear option in the next few weeks. Plus it’s pretty close to Blue Jay blue, so I can even wear it to Chanler’s JHU lacrosse games at Homewood Field as he finishes off his senior season. (Bittersweet…) Such a fan of how pink-and-blue swirl together in the gorgeous paisley pattern of this anything-but-ordinary shirt. My dark rinse high-rise skinnies (so comfy! really!!) are from a new label I just learned about — Mott & Bow. The brand’s mission is to create premium denim at a reasonable price. It’s also a family-owned business where every pair is handcrafted. AND…you can even get a FREE try-on pair when you order. (They have Men’s denim, too.) Finishing it all off, rainbow floral hoop earrings I featured in this earlier post and hot pink suede shoes with a peep toe and of-the-moment-yet-super-walkable block heel.
