Summer Style

A Days Ago of Summer

The Post-Fashion Month workload is dependable to a great degree overpowering… A gazillion outfits to share, a tremendous greater part of online networking updates to be done, and arranging our Fall/Winter “article schedule” and coordinated efforts. I cherish it, don’t misunderstand me, I do, yet it’s an ideal opportunity to grow the group to set aside a few minutes isn’t pulled excessively towards the strategic side of the business, yet remains where my actual enthusiasm is: Creating content. Be that as it may, more on group extension later, allows the first spotlight on loving those last long periods of summer, in light of the fact that before we know it we are will undoubtedly home once more, staying in on account of the pouring precipitation and horrifying cool temperatures. I am [...]

Best of Summer Statement Sunglasses

… Say that fives times fast! A statement sunglass instantly elevates even the simplest white tee and cutoff shorts. In my opinion, you need two pairs of sunglasses in your life. One: your go-to, everyday, neutral coloring pair that works with anything pair. Two: a fun, out-there pair with some personality. These flower jewel-embellished sunglasses are practically a piece of jewelry by themselves. I worked my whole outfit around these: throwing on a simple black cotton sunglasses, a structured bag, minimal jewelry, and hair pulled back to emphasize the shades. What I love about them is that although they’re a statement piece, I don’t think they’re “trendy” because the flower details sit upon a very classic cat-eye shape. Unlike other trendy pieces, I think I’ll still be pulling these out in a couple years and they’ll feel fresh. Alice & Olivia kind [...]

Softest Tunic For Summer

You have no idea how good the sun feels on your face if you haven’t had six whole months of wearing jackets over bulky sweaters or haven’t spent hours sitting in front of the fireplace not even wanting to get up to get a glass of water or shoveling snow at the end of March! Yes, like anything else in life, summer is truly precious to those who have borne the brunt of winters. Hah! With no intentions of getting philosophical, what I am really trying to say is – summers make me really, really happy. Besides, having spent all of last month in India – I think I am a bit spoilt. I am basking in the Boston summer’s glory and who cares if Spring was completely skipped. Sorry Spring! Love this tunic for a warm summer day! [...]

Smells of Summer

Summertime to me smells like, hot dogs, roasting on the grill, salty ocean air, fresh funnel cakes at the fair and tanning lotion. Summer smells like chlorine at the pool and sulfur from the 4th of July fireworks. But when I want a perfume that smells like summer, I want something light and bright with citrus undertones and a fresh, clean vibe. My Tory Burch Bel Azur fragrance gives me all the summer feelings without making me smell like a hot dog. It’s perfect for day or night and keeps me feeling fresh even on scorching hot days. That’s what I call summer in a bottle. I’d love to hear all about your favorite summer fragrance!

My Dress Of The Year

All I have to say is that I may never have been so in love with a dress (or photos of myself lol!). I found this Preen Line dress back in February and just KNEW I had to have it for Coachella. Well, I made the rookie mistake of wearing my favorite outfit (this dress) the first night of the festival and because we had hosted our Desert Oasis party until 6pm that day, I didn’t get to the festival until dark – when there was no daylight left for photos!! So when I got back from Coachella, I called my photographer, Nicole Moser, and asked her to come to shoot the dress in all the freshly bloomed wildflowers engulfing the Malibu hills at the moment. I’m so glad I did! I feel like this dress represents who I am in a way: feminine, [...]

How to Wear a Maxi Skirt

As you guys noticed already I am not a person who would usually go for the Maxi Skirts, however, I wanted to give it a try and style a Maxi Skirt this time. I think this one is pretty cute with the huge polka dots on it and I got it from 4G Shop here in Prishtina. I was thinking that this would perfectly match with a plain black top as the one that I am wearing from ZARA. Also, first I went for some pair of black heels but after I tried different options I decided that a pair of boots would perfectly match with the outfit. I can’t wait to wear these boots more often though; they are also on the new collection of Gentli, so I would suggest you go check their new collection since is [...]

Ways to wear a Bralette

Are you ready to see all the ways to style and wear your favorite bralette? One of the ways I love to style my Candie’s by Kohl’s bralettes is layering with a white tee! When you find the style and colors you love, it’s amazing how it changes your outfit. This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I was pad for this post and received the included intimates as compensation. I have been loving the Candie’s Eyelash Bralette (white and sphinx colors) and the Candie’s Strappy Plunge Bralette for the summer time. They are SO comfortable due to them being made out of lace. They provide support but are also breathable. Also, I love having the lace pop out of tank tops or t-shirts for a cute feminine detail! I tend to shop more neutral colors: the greys, pinks, and whites. That way I can wear them [...]

Summer Style Trends | Stripes

Now that we are in the midst of Summer, you need to see my favorite Summer style trends! Stripes are always my favorite trend for any season but especially in the Summer. It’s the perfect nod to nautical. There is nothing more perfect for Summer then stripes. They are the perfect accent for white jeans, shorts, or linen pants. It’s a fresh and nautical look! I found this sweatshirt at Target but it was all sold out. I did find a similar one that is less expensive! The side ties have my heart swooning. I’ve worn it with my white jean shorts and it was the cutest combo. This look is perfect for a cute date night, running errands, or even a beach day!

My Farfetch Summer Style Guide

I was recently featured on Farfetch’s editorial style guide. Personally, I love the concept of Farfetch because you have access to boutiques around the world through one website – giving you a wide edit and selection. I’m wearing the Castaner wedges; wedges are some of my favorite summer shoes of choice because of the fact they never look under or overdressed – and can still be worn throughout the year to work and play. I love them because they’re luxurious, versatile and actually very comfortable. I usually go for nudes or blacks but love the beige and red combination of this piece. It makes it a very easy piece to wear throughout the summer. They would work during the daytime with a little white dress all the way to a bohemian blouse and denim cut-offs. This look specifically, I wore to the Dubai Opera [...]

3 THINGS YOU MUST DO THIS SUMMER

3 Things You Must Do This Summer #1 Get out on the water! Whether it be Lake Michigan, the ocean in Mexico or the local pool. Enjoy the outside as fall/winter will be near asap. Chicago gets HOT, so a dip into water feels great. This mama loves a good tan (I know terrible for the skin), but being around water feels refreshing. We are headed to Michigan soon with friends, I’ve taken the kids to the beach, and I’ve been to Mexico. I’m trying to get out there as much as possible as I hate the winters here. Recently, I’ve learned you can rent boats to go out on the lake (yes, I’ve lived here for 7 years but still have haven’t done this) so this is on my list for sure. #2 Rooftop babe here. In Chicago, we have a slew of fantastic [...]
