Dress in Color!

There’s no better time than summer for a colorful dress…or two. I actually bought this one last year for a shoot but just wasn’t feeling like celebrating anything other than remaining COVID-free. This summer, despite the Delta variant, it’s starting to feel like we’re finding our way to a happier, healthier, more hopeful place. And what really feels truer than ever is that by wearing brighter colors you just might project an energy and warmth into the world that gets reflected back to you.

How does my garden grow?

With wildflowers in all their colorful and unruly glory! Amidst the ongoing Coronavirus Crisis, it hasn’t been lost on me that I am blessed to have this idyllic hideaway to escape to. Chris and I have stayed healthy thus far, even going back and forth between our cabin and our Jersey City apartment, and I really (really!) don’t want to get sick now. That’s why I’ve been spending most of my time up in the Adirondacks, where it’s wild and beautiful and much easier to practice social distancing while still gathering with friends who are doing the same. Not to mention hiking on trails and walking in the woods or on quiet roads without crowds of people. I carry my mask along and wear it as soon as I approach anyone else. I can breathe up here. And I can smell the flowers!

Power to the Pom Pom!

Spoiler alert: this is not a fashion post! But we are talking Pom Poms. And if you’ve been along for the Life’s a Spritz ride, you know I’ve probably never met a Pom Pom I didn’t like. (As seen here, here, here, and here, here, here, and here.) They are cute, soft, round, and colorful. Did I say like? How about love! Keep reading if you want some ideas on how to make your life, and your look, Pom Pom-eriffic.

Queen for a Day

I Queen, you Queen, we all Queen! But for what? How about whatever your heart desires. If I put aside my To Do list for 24 hours, and crowned myself Queen for a Day, where would I start? Hmmm, it’s hard to do whatever you want to do. We’re all so programmed to do what we need to, have to, simply can’t not do. While Queen for a Day is still a work in progress, I’m pretty sure I can come up with one simple thing I really want to do each and every day. And then give myself the time and permission to do it. Baby steps, right? Or maybe a leap now and then.

Thinking Pink!

This rose pink maxi dress is seriously my favorite find for this summer…and beyond. (I plan to layer a black turtleneck underneath and add black booties come Fall.) This color is flattering to every skin tone! Truly!! Just for fun, I wore this exact outfit to a VERY BIG beach party, and so many women said they LOVED the color. I am normally not a big fan of PINK, but I’m making a major exception for this maxi dress! Maybe you should too?

Statement Tee, Two Ways

In case you missed it, the Statement Tee is making quite the fashion statement. From designer priced to under $10, from rock legends to bucket list destinations to political POVs, the Statement Tee is a quick, chic, and personalized way to update your look. It also happens to be my favorite way to refresh “shop my closet” outfits.

Go Fourth and Be You

Flags, fireworks, frankfurters…however you celebrate, the 4th of July is America’s quintessential summer holiday. And let’s face it, any combination of red, white and blue is one color combo that never gets old. So if you’re looking for a little inspo on how to refresh your summer wardrobe (and maybe a bit of deeper thinking), this post is for you.

Getaway Glam

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!

Parlez Vous Tried & True?

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.
