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.
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?
I hadn’t planned on taking almost 2 weeks to post Statement Tee, Look 2 but between a new work assignment and summertime activities, my blogging goals were demolished. This look is uncomplicated and casual and one you can definitely recreate in your own way. But it’s the details that make the difference.
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.
What would a summer wardrobe be without the perfect Little White Dress (or LWD in fashion-speak)? For me, this tailored eyelet sheath had my name on it. And at a super sale price, it just might be my style score of the season.
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.
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.
