Top Picks From Sassy to Sexy

Well, the dreaded swimsuit countdown continues. I thought I was doing well; in fact, I know I was doing well. I have been eating sensibly and walking to work every day. I have been cutting back on diet soda and getting plenty of sleep. In fact, my new skirt was feeling very sleek and sexy, with nary an errant wrinkle or bulge. And then the Easter Bunny paid a little visit, along with a cache of chocolate bunnies and truffle eggs that were just too yummy to let go to waste. (Hey — it would be socially irresponsible of me to throw them away; besides, it would probably draw ants…) Which has unfortunately set me back at least two weeks in my Quest for the Semi-Perfect Bikini Body, as well as put the pudding back into my sleek and sexy skirt. Sigh…

So it's back to boot camp for me dears. Or so I thought. I have discovered a way to get a workout without having to go to the gym! I have recently acquired a pair of Reebok EasyTone sneakers. These saucy little sneaks have balance pods on the heel and footpad which give my calves and glutes a serious toning workout just by wearing them while walking to work, cleaning my apartment or running errands. The ultimate in multi-tasking! Which, combined with my on-again sensible diet (after I eat this last chocolate bunny — gulp!) should put me right back on schedule with the Quest. And since I'm such a considerate and caring friend, I thought I'd pass along an opportunity for you to perhaps win a pair of your own!

Anyhoo, now that I've solved that little body-issue dilemma, it's on to the fun stuff! With the weather finally warming up it's time to break out the flirty skirts and saucy sandals! There are so many gorgeous styles out there for spring — adorable sundresses and strappy skyscrapers, sassy skirts and silky tie-neck blouses, darling linen crops and preppy rope sole sandals, and the classic designer jeans and striped tee shirt combo that signals the official start of spring. I would just love to be able to snap up an entirely new spring wardrobe, unfortunately I am hampered somewhat by my current economic state. The long-wished-for Stiletto Stimulus Package has failed to materialize and I find myself, like most of you, looking for ways to economize while still remaining stylish. So I've narrowed down my Spring Wish List to my top three favorite ensembles for spring: Designer Boutique

The Classic:

Designer denim, a floaty top and patent thong sandals. This is a look every girl can rely on for just about any casual spring/summer gathering. I like Paige Premium denim because they are classicly cut to avoid plumber's bum, camel toe and muffin top, or what my dear friend Sandy refers to as the dreaded trifecta. A too-low-rise jean tends to push any superfluous flesh upwards, thereby resulting in muffin top (and the also way-too-often-seen plumber's bum). A too-high-rise jean tends to ride up over the hipbones, causing the hideously embarrassing camel toe, which is also referred to as the "mom jeans" look. (Disclaimer: I know none of you darling girls would ever wear "mom jeans" but we have spotted them on the street as recently as ten minutes ago, so someone out there isn't paying attention!) If, however, you have one of those envious long, lean figures, go ahead with the low-rise and super-low rise jeans (just make sure the rise in the rear is high enough to spare everyone a view of bum-cleavage.) Pair your denim with a deliciously floaty blouse or top. So many choices! Sheers, chiffons, skim-and-cling knits, draping and ruffles — the choices are practically endless! Finish the look with a pair of fun thong sandals. I like patent leather because the shine tends to give the ensemble a bit more of a polished, grown-up look. You can go with flats, but if you feel the need for a little height there are some gorgeous heeled thongs out there this season. Finish the look with a great hobo bag or leather satchel.

Updated Boho:

An ethnic print sundress looks particularly fetching when worn with a pair of platform sandals, instead of the ubiquitous grecian flat. The added height of the platform gives the look an entirely more dressed-up feel. You can go with a spaghetti-strap sundress worn alone or over a tissue-tee. A halter-neck sundress is also ideal for spring and summer. I just adore this sleeveless wrap sundress, which emphasizes the waist and is so ultra feminine. There are also several adorable short-sleeve styles out there for those who just want to cover up a bit more in the fierce sun.

Not into prints? You can get the same boho chic look with a flowy white sundress and a pair of colorful leather platform sandals, or a gorgeous gauzy confection paired with braided white strappies. A slouchy handbag will put the perfect finishing touch on your ensemble.

Sassy Sailor:

The nautical or sailor style is another chic and classic look. From New York to San Francisco, Chicago to Dallas, and all points in between yachting-inspired apparel is a sure-fire signal that summer is on its way. To embrace this style, start with a pair of wide-legged white trousers or even pin-striped crops, add a navy camp shirt or striped top and a blazer or chic cardigan. Finish with a pair of deck shoes (no socks!) or deck-friendly sandals, a chic pair of shades and a fabulous tote bag for all your sea-worthy goodies.

Another nautical option is a classic denim skirt in either blue or white, or pair of bermuda shorts. Top with a crisp white blouse or sleeveless top and add a cozy sweater to ward of those brisk ocean breezes. Finish with a pair of strappy low sandals and a studded straw tote bag.

Finishing Touches:

  • A great summer fragrance. My pick for the season is The Beat by Burberry. Crisp, clean, edgy but definitely feminine. Reminiscent of long walks on the beach. Yum.
  • Killer pair of sunglasses. Love, love, love these cheeky little shades from Blumarine.
  • Fun little watch. Preferably waterproof.

Well darlings, it's a start!
