Today is NYC Pride Parade 2019 and the largest LGBTQ celebration in the world. It’s also the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, considered the catalyst for the modern gay rights movement. As well as the first time WorldPride is being held in the USA. And…our son Spencer is there! Yay!!
Yeesh. Is Summer just about flowers? Well, yes. So let’s go with that. What I love about this look is it’s not prettified to perfection. It’s a real life outfit that is made up of favorite finds that would work well with other pieces from your wardrobe. And for me, it all started with this statement tee.
Just like garden annuals, summer always seems to bloom with floral prints (as seen in this recent post). And I am not one to resist their pretty, feminine appeal. But…sometimes I like my flowers to be powered up with a bolder, more graphic palette. And this floral print top-and-skirt combo was ripe for the picking!
Yay, summer is really, truly, finally here. And it’s about time. And time to break out the sundresses and bring on the Birkies, because it wouldn’t be summer without them.
Summer is the season for getaways, right? Even if it’s to the stunning roof deck atop your apartment building. But more on that later. First, let’s focus on this floral-print top and skirt that together create a maxi dress effect, with each piece upping its fashion potential when paired with other pieces. Meaning you just might need to pack up a look like this, too!
It’s pretty hard to beat a tee and denim duo. That might be why I can’t resist a fun, fresh interpretation of each. FYI, I’m never in favor of statement tees that use “bad” language or scream a faux sense of cool. But this sweet little tee made me smile. And think, mais oui, I must add you to my wardrobe.
This summer (and probably for many summers to come) one of my go-to looks (also seen here) is going to be a simple yet well-tailored, knee-length dress, statement sneakers and a fun bag. Add some colorful bracelets, and I’m all set to stalk the city or enjoy an afternoon in the country. Plus, this look breezes from day into night with the greatest of ease.
There’s no easier or quicker way to polish an outfit than by layering on a well-tailored blazer. I already own one in classic black (seen here) but that feels a bit too formal and dark for Spring’s lighter, brighter days. So when I spotted this caramel-colored double-breasted jacket, I instantly knew it was headed to my closet and into heavy wardrobe rotation.
Did you know the advertising slogan “Say It With Flowers” was created for a Mother’s Day campaign by The Florists’ Telegraph Delivery (or FTD) association in…1918! And yet, it somehow still sounds fresh today. I haven’t had any flowers delivered…yet, and it’s absolutely raining buckets here in Jersey City. But if it were a sunny day, I think this floral print maxi dress would be the start of a perfect Mother’s Day look.
This Spring, the hottest silhouette on the fashion scene just might be the Boiler Suit. Most sought after in denim, think of it as the edgy evolution of the jumpsuit. It took me awhile, and quite a few try-ons, to find the right one for me. But now that I’ve jumped on the Boiler Suit bandwagon, it’s been a smooth and stylish ride.
