Dress for Yourself

“Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, and of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys, they’d just walk around naked at all times.”

Wedding Season

05-11-15-Red-Dress

Wedding season is starting to hit and I’m excited to say I have a few coming up. I find them to be utterly romantic. It’s that special moment where two people declare their love for each other in front of their friends and family. I always find it an honor to be invited to share in those special occassions.

It’s also an opportunity to find a fun dress! Summer clothing lines are starting to come out and I’m on the hunt for a couple of winners. Since it’s full day event in most cases, it’s important to find a dress that breaths throughout the day. I love silk as much as the next girl but in the hot summer heat, you are not going to be able to last until the dancing starts. My requirements are something with a bit of a full skirt, cotton or spandex type of material and a fun pattern or interesting shape. This dress is one I would wear in a heartbeat. It’s fun, light and can go all night!

Jump into Spring

Why not jump into spring with a jumpsuit? They are very hot right now, appearing everywhere from runways, red carpets, and to your fellow shoppers on the street. It’s a fashionable, acceptable onesie that you can wear after you turn 5. It’s an easy way to look elegantly pulled together while feeling comfortable and breezy. I’m on the hunt to find a good one to add to my closet.

Are you trying out the jumpsuit?

What Snow?

It’s hard to imagine my relief the first time I saw a whole block of sidewalk in Boston. I knew it existed underneath the mountains of snow and ice but seeing the glorious stretch was so satisfying. It meant spring was coming (even if it was still weeks away) and I could someday soon leave my apartment without gloves. The little act of leaving them in my purse was one of the best feelings.

This morning, I was finally able to put on shorts for the first time this year for a run. It was beautiful, balmy and I’m so happy the warmer weather has come in.
