Late Summer

SEE LARK! | Late Summer

As much as I am looking forward to Fall, I am trying to soak up as much of Summer as I can.  Straw hats and short dresses are the epitome of a lazy, “nothing to do”, warm August afternoon.  I choose an all black ensemble.  I know what you are thinking, isn’t that reserved for colder months and New Yorkers?  Noir get-ups can totally work for Summer, just look for lighter fabrics and pieces appropriate for the weather in question (i.e., sandals instead of knee high boots, but you are all smart and probably already knew that!).  This shirt dress was light and airy, perfect for disguising the salad with buerre blanc sance and a side of fries I consumed at lunch.  Oops.

The typical beach uniform calls for a maxi dress. To keep it from looking dull, turn to interesting cuts like this beauty I found on Etsy.  With a plunging back and deep v-neck front, it feels less muu muu and more sexy.

What I love about this particular style is its loose and flowy design making it look more like a dress than pants.   Continue reading “Yet Another Jumpsuit”

Totally gorgeous and totally impractical, patterned pumps are every where you turn this season.  If you are a shoe addict and love to say you care with shoes, then bold and crazy prints are just what the doctor ordered. They are a great complement to wardrobe basics or mixed with other patterns.   Continue reading “Crazy Bold Pumps”

Flowy

Summer time means maxi dresses and Tibi makes one of my favorite flowy maxis.  I have been drooling over this open back style ever since I first laid eyes on it a couple of years ago, but given the high price tag and the fact it was sold out, I thought it would only be a figment of my fashion imagination.
