5 Hottest Looks for Right Now
Took a little advice from myself and joined my eternally chic and stylish fashionista friends for a little dinner alfresco this past week. It had been a positively brutal week at work — my über-chic mentor/boss was vacationing at Lake Como (probably having dinner with George Clooney no less), which meant that I was stuck at the office screening calls and taking delivery of all the gorgeous swag she picks up while wending her way across Europe. Must admit that my dampened spirits were immensely perked when I unwrapped this gorgeous handbag, along with the note: "To Darling She She, for all your hard work while I play. xoxo, Lady Boss." That woman sure does know the way to a fashionista's heart!
Anyhoo, after a week of unwrapping, organizing and drooling over her handbag and accessory purchases I was more than ready for a little R & R (Refreshment and Retail therapy) with the girls. We chose a darling little bistro overlooking the Bay, so we could watch the sailboats gliding by and enjoy the fresh sea air. And it just happened to be right smack dab in the center of some of the best shoe shopping territory around.
One of the things I love most about summer is that you usually don't have to stray too far from the mark in the fashion department. You can pretty much count on the weather ranging from comfortably warm and sunny, to blisteringly hot and sunny, to swampishly sweaty and sunny. Sure, Mother Nature throws the occasional squall your way, but other than making sure you have your trusty umbrella tucked into your tote, you really don't have to worry about being over dressed. Unless, of course, you work in one of those offices where the thermostat has been stuck at 67° for the past seven years. This is where the ubiquitous neutral toned cashmere cardigan comes into play. Never leave home without it! Word to the wise: chilly temps tend to cause goose bumps to appear, often in an inappropriate manner; therefore always wear a bra with proper coverage. Headlights are très déclassé for the office (or anywhere at all for that matter. Unless, of course, you are a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model. Which I'm not.) Anyhoo, here are our favorite ways to rock this summer's fashions:
The Look: Lunch with the Girls
The Look: Night on the Town
- This season's bright shades are the way to go here, let the LBD wait till fall. Gorgeous greens, Caribbean blues, sizzling hot pinks and yummy yellows will have you looking hot, hot, hot, while keeping your cool. This is the time to break out the bling, so snap up a pair of embellished skyscrapers, skip the necklace but slip on a couple of gorgeous bangles and a pair of dangles, and finish with a charming clutch.
The Look: Casual Fridays
The Look: Weekend Fun!
- Gotta love a comfy knit sundress! A gorgeous knit sundress is the perfect go-to outfit for an afternoon picnic, a day at the beach or an afternoon of fun on the boardwalk. Give the neutral stripes a little pizzazz with a blast of color. Leather slingbacks give it a little oomph, especially when paired with a great handbag. Don't forget to keep that sensitive skin protected. Slather on the sunscreen and slap on a wide-brimmed hat for added protection as well as style. The best part about a sundress as opposed to shorts and a tank? It is soooo easy to slip on over your bikini! (Hey, you never know when you might happen upon a secluded lake while on the picnic, or fall overboard while on that sailboat!)
The Look: Full-On Fashionista Alert
- This is it girls. This is where you pull out the big guns. A great dress, that's a given. Platform skyscrapers will not only add to your physical stature, but the right pair will boost your fashionista status as well. The necklace: strands of antique silver chain. The bracelet: colorful sea-glass discs. The ring: a little edgy. And above all else, an absolute KILLER handbag.
Happy summer shopping darling girls!
