Hey my lovies,
I cannot believe that we’ve raced through an entire season, and we’re now preparing for fall. This summer was magnificent. However, I feel like I’m still craving little bullets of sweat running down my neck and back, with this fall chill in the air every evening. Lots to do in New York City this weekend. Both the U.S. Open finals and beginning of Fashion Week all packed into one fantastic weekend. But first, lets backtrack for a second to 2 of my favourite looks this summer.
As much as I crave the heat, the streets of Manhattan was not the place to enjoy it. I spent most weekends in South Hamptons this summer. It’s tricky packing for the Hamps because you never quite know what you’re going to end up doing each day. One of my favourites was the cold shoulder top. I bought a variety. Long sleeved, crop tops, shirts and managed to work them into every occasion out East.
Apart from the heat during the summer, fashion enthusiasts look forward to summer sale season. Intermix was a fave for me this summer. I found all my coveted Spring items slashed to below 50% of the original price. Everything from Zimmerman to Missoni….YAAAY! I was beyond excited when I scored these Self-Portrait shorts on sale. That little frill/flounce at the bottom had me written all over it.
In the Hamptons you’re never quite sure if you’re going to end up lunching and brunching around town, popping into a BBQ or boating and swimming at the beach. Layering a belted shirt or dress over your bathing suit is a chic and easy way to be ready for everything.
I was obsessed with scarves this season. They made for a chic replacement to my necklaces and added the perfect pop of colour to my outfits. I added cute pins and bejewelled charms I found at Zara, just for a little extra fun on my neck. This look was a huge hit at Sunset Beach. Reminding me that if you love and own your look, it will always work. Confidence is always sexy.
On that note. I’m going to get ready for a little weekend fun myself. Happy Friday my fashion dolls, get out and make the most of your weekend. xoxoSB
