So long Summer…

September 2, 2019

A little red, white and blue never hurt anybody! When the infamous color trio makes its appearances at the beginning of summer, it’s all you see in stores, on your Instagram feed, and on your favorite style icons for two months. However, the palette’s ubiquitousness usually tapers out before the first of August to make room for more autumnal hues. So before I exchange my bright primary pops of color for burgundy, olive, and camel, I wanted to get one last “farewell” post in saluting summer’s most iconic color palette.

High Tides and Gypsy Vibes…

There are few things more satisfying than putting reality on hold for a few days and escaping to your ideal vacation. You’ve worked hard all season, you’re running on four cups of coffee a day, and all you want to do is relax with your Delia Owens hardcover overlooking a sunset. (And catch up on sleep.)

I have nowhere that I need to be and no one that expects me to look a certain way, which is a truly freeing feeling for a stylist. Maybe I’ll lean nautical one day, and go completely edgy the next.

And during my most recent trip to the Caribbean, I was inspired by the street markets’ vibrant colors and the breezy sea waves.

Without the constant magic and joy that NYFW provides Manhattan, the city reverts to its default for mid-February — a bleak, gray winter. To escape the seemingly endless gloom and cold winds, I recently hopped on a plane to visit some of my favorite spots in Miami and inject some sunshine back into my daily routine. Not only was this trip filled with blooming plants and fresh air, but I also took full advantage of the humidity and warmer temperatures by pulling out some of my favorite seasonal transition garments. When it’s too warm for sweaters but not quite time for mini skirts, I tend to find myself wearing long, breezy ensembles that I can feel confident in – despite unpredictable weather.
