When it comes to closet staples, a military jacket is an essential item to own this season. The military uniform heavily influenced many of the most renowned fashion designers for their Spring 2016 runway shows. Gucci, Burberry and Givenchy were just a few of the top tier designers who are showcasing military jackets that were greatly influenced by the Age of Enlightenment, featuring styles from 18th century France and Britain; brass buttons, rope trim and epaulettes are just a few of the similarities seen across the trending military jackets.
I am here to set the record straight on the never-ending “no white after Labor Day” debate… enough already with that taboo! It is an incredibly outdated fashion rule and I love nothing more than wearing winter white in the coldest of months. Short days, early sunsets and chilling temperatures can take its toll on you but your wardrobe should never reflect the gloominess you see outside your window.
Guess what !? New Years Eve is right around the corner…and…my kids are sleeping over at a friends place! You know what that means!!? Sequins, Martinis and dancin’ til dawn!! I can’t wait, 2020 here we come! Having trouble picking out what to wear?!? Me too! Ok, so I decided to make it easier for all of us and break down some looks based on the occasion. Staying home for game night? Going dancing? House Party? Or black tie event? I have you covered!
This is the time of year to rock this perfect 2-piece set from Free People! Love the color, love the style, love the fit! This is everything you want in a set and more. It’s true to size so there’s no need to size up or down. It’s also a perfect transitional piece that can easily be worn into fall!
Summertime has officially arrived! The kids are out of school, I am getting in vacation mode and spending this week in The Hamptons. Where is my first stop? None other than my favorite restaurant…The Clam Bar. Summer hasn’t really started until I have had a clam roll!!!
On another note, I am loving this Elan Cover-Up Maxi because it is the perfect multifunctional dress. You can wear it as a beach coverup but also dress it up and wear it out to lunch. Belt it, throw on some nice sandals and you are ready to go from beach to brunch. Overall this dress is the BEST $68 you will spend when it comes to a fab summer dress! I treat myself to a new Elan dress every season!
The summer “No Makeup” makeup look is what we all strive for in the warmer months. I know I do! So here is the deal…at my age, there is no more leaving the house with “No Makeup”. So, I have come up with a solution or I guess you could say it’s a compromise to getting away with wearing as little makeup as possible.
