Star Theme:

unnamed-9unnamed-11Apparently I’m pretty partial to stars.  On my shoes and on my clothing.  This super soft  Sundry muscle tank is absolutely no exception.  It’s cute knotted at the bottom paired with a maxi skirt, tucked in with denim cut-offs or even paired with leggings, sneakers and an elongated cardigan. In other words, an all-season essential.

Modern Boho:

I’m a big fan of the maxi skirt in the Summer.  There’s something so boho beachy about it–perfect for a bonfire (airy yet can easily be lifted up on the sand) or a dinner party in a friend’s backyard.  In fact, if it’s short enough (or if you want to hem it), it’s great to pair with a t-shirt and flat sandals during the day.  Here I’ve paired it with a zip-up denim cutoff shell– somewhat of a retro meets gypsy look.

Flashing It Back And Fasting It Forward:

unnamed-1unnamed-12unnamedYesterday marked my two year anniversary of living outside the city.  Some days I’m over the moon elated and can’t believe I live in such a beautiful part of the country surrounded by the best of friends, and other times I almost can’t breathe because I feel like I’ve lost something and yearn for it deeply (the noise, anonymity, smog, my tiny TriBeCa apartment, just everything that’s NYC).  However, I’ll embrace the fact that I live in the suburbs on days like today where I’m able to have fresher 95 degree air, green grass, air conditioned cars vs. the subway (that platform underground is hell) and access to friends’ pools.  I hope everybody’s having a good Summer so far–enjoy it because it’s flying by!

Stars & Stripes:

I had a little fun with this outfit.  These Isa Tapia slides (read that as a new purchase that made me so happy when I found them that I just had to have them) are not only silly but they’re comfy.  The leather is soft and the stars look like those adhesive foam stickers my daughter uses for art projects (moms, you know what I’m talking about!), but are actually suede and leather cutouts.  So very tongue-in-cheek.  These sandals also give me the excuse to pull my Mulberry Bayswater bag out of the archives.

Light & Airy:

Mexican food calls for comfortable clothing, fact.  In fact, during the Summer I rarely wear my skinny jeans, but instead opt for boyfriend jeans or skirts and dresses for a night out.  No better go-to than a loose eyelet cropped top and ripped boyfriend jeans.  I love mixing shades of white (and of course I wear my white jeans year-round, but these with holes are reserved solely for the Summer), but I added metallic touches in the shoes and clutch to break it up a bit.
