Anogher holiday season is upon us. Hope you enjoyed a great Thanksgiving with family and friends and haven’t fallen too far down the rabbit hole of Black Friday shopping. I’ve got multiple online carts full, but haven’t checked out…yet. In the meantime, let’s celebrate a few of my favorite fashion things — stripes and sparkle. Both being perfect wardrobe additions any time of year, but especially in the days ahead.
Although these days there’s a slight chill in the air, the sun still feels strong. So it’s the perfect time to layer favorite season-less wardrobe pieces and show them off — before we have to pull out our puffer coats and go “undercover.” Sticking to a black-and-white palette makes pulling any outfit together, this one included, pretty foolproof.
In the Northeast, October and November are somewhat erratic weather-wise. One day it can be 70 degrees, the next almost freezing. That’s why I look for creative ways of layering to extend the wear of a favorite summer dress and still stay warm!
Corduroy is a perennial Fall fabric, but this year it’s taking a more tailored turn. And jackets seem to be leading the way. That’s why this double-breasted one from the current Rowing Blazers x Target collab caught my eye. The collection has been wildly popular and in-store stock is pretty sparse, but you can still score some pieces online and on sale. Don’t wait.
To quote Lovin’ Spoonful (and date myself): ” Hot town, summer in the city.” And boy was it hot when we shot this post! So building a look around a cute pair of walking shorts was a no brainer. Even better when said shorts were yet another secondhand/consignment purchase.
Few industries tout their sustainability credentials more in-your-face than the fashion industry. Sadly despite even the best of intentions, the industry — and we as shoppers — have continued to fail our planet. It’s not as if sustainability isn’t on the agenda for fashion brands, but the complicated ecosystem that drives the industry is often reacting to us. The consumers. And our seemingly endless demands for more fashion — faster, fresher, cheaper.
If you live in a city, one of the biggest summertime perks is a pool. Especially this summer! So once DVORA gave us permission to shoot this post at their La Playa, we were there. Both the lifeguard Keanu and my photog Kristin tried to convince me to jump into the pool in this dress (!!!), but this urban mermaid preferred to play it cool…and dry.
We may all be living in the real world, but from what I hear “Barbie” is the delightful and empowering animated adventure that is this summer’s must-see movie. It’s definitely top of my list. In the meantime, I’m thinking Barbie pink. Like this pretty-in-pink sundress.
Summer is made for vacation. But apparently today’s air travel is not. And that’s sparked the trend for packing carry-on luggage only. I am an inveterate over-packer, but with the right game plan in terms of versatile pieces, even I can travel lighter, smarter, chicer. Or at least I’m determined to try!
Bright, happy, uplifting. Orange is often described as a high energy color. It’s known to elicit feelings of enthusiasm and excitement. Think sunsets and citrus fruits. I don’t know about you, but orange just looks and feels like summer to me.
