Summer (and the new me)


We went from winter right to summer with barely a spring so yesterday I tried to stay cool to pop around town and have dinner outside in my friend's garden.  I wore a striped Talbot's shirt, Kate Spade shorts and pulled out the Loeffler Randall sandals from hibernation.

Even a casual outfit isn't complete without some bedazzling which I did with a turquoise and coral Terry Ross ring and summery cuff bracelet from Sequin in Palm Beach.  And for once, enough about my outfit, what do you think of the new blog?  The lovely ladies at Jessica Sutton Graphic Design were kind enough to work their little hearts out on it.  I hope you love it as much as I do!

On my daily walk to work, I often come upon a neighborhood gent who I consider my own little peanut gallery.  The daily commentary usually consists of the gent calling me Hollywood, telling me how nice I look and wishing me a nice day.  On this particular day, he said to me "Hollywood, I have to ask you a question.  Where do you put all the clothes?"  I lamented that it's a problem in my tiny apartment but thank goodness for my three closets to which he replied, "Hollywood, you use them all too and you look good."  It was an amusing and lovely start to my long weekend.

Since today is the unofficial start of summer and the time where if one followed fashion rules, one would be allowed to start wearing white, I wore this white lace Marc by Marc Jacobs dress.  It was perfect on the first day that really felt like summer.

Happy long weekend!


Happy Day!!

Kate Spade jacket, DVF top, Zara pants

It felt like summer today and it was glorious and deserving of the bright pink pants! I wore them with my favorite DVF top with little abstract hearts all over it and a Kate Spade jacket.

Stuart Weitzman shoes

It finally felt warm enough to break out these woven Stuart Weitzman sandals. Oh happy day!

Work has been nuts and this was just an easy outfit for this past Monday. Sometimes it's easiest to just keep it simple which I did with an H&M striped top, trusty Zara blazer, white Seven jeans and Chanel flats. I gave it the needed umph with my orange Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch and layers of necklaces. I'm thrilled it's Wednesday and that it's getting closer to a needed long weekend.


We All Love Color

Zara top, Talbots skirt, Pour la Victoire shoes

Have I told you before that when I get dressed each day, I get dressed for myself?  Sometimes I'm lazy, sometimes inertia makes me go with my overall mood.  But sometimes to break out of how I feel about being overworked or how I feel about the dreary weather, I force myself to whip out the bright colors because they just make me happy.  That's what I did this morning with this bright orange Zara top, candy colored striped skirt from Talbots and sky high Pour la Victoire platforms.   This evening, after another long workday instead of going straight home and scrounging up whatever is in my fridge, I took myself out for some sushi.  A woman a couple of seats down from me struck up a conversation about how she loved the bright orange, stripes and bright color in general.  And even though I do this for myself, it really is nice to know that in some small way, it makes someone else happy too.
