O.W.O. Weather Radar

O.W.O. (One Weekend Outfit) all about keeping warm but not too warm!

Vortex Schmortex.  Weather radar had predicted a freezing cold weekend and didn’t deliver.  reversecommuter was not disappointed, although running around prepping my little princess’ birthday party (complete with photo booth props that I clearly had to test drive!) kept me so busy I barely noticed the weather!

Shearling, fur and denim made for a perfect weekend outfit.  Layering a long sleeve t-shirt with a boyfriend cut sweater under a cropped jacket can carry you through the day.  J Crew has some great boyfriend sweaters at budget friendly prices – did you know that their cashmere sweaters are made with the same wool as Loro Piana?  Psst – 25% off the regular price today with the code “SHOPNOW”.

 

O.W.O.

reversecommuter was in a bikini or a cover-up all weekend.

Attacking the monster water slide (all day long!!!), made me appreciate investing in a well made bathing suit!

Merci beaucoup Shan!

Ponies to the Maxi!

WHAT A WEEKEND!

Heat wave, birthday parties and a lunchtime rendez-vous!

The only option for an outfit during this kind of weather is a maxi dress.  Coolest, most comfortable option available, and you can completely change it up with accessories so that no one is the wiser to repeat appearances!

GIDDYUP!  oh yes I did!  I totally took a turn on the pony rides at a 3 year old’s birthday party!!!!  You only live once!

This maxi is from Calypso – love the brilliant colors and the pattern’s Aztec influence.

Secret rendez-vous with HH on the waterfront for lunch.  Phenom view, gorgeous breeze (much needed at the temp was a solid 100!!), and sometimes a day-date is just so perfect!

Yup, another day another Maxi dress!

This one is from Splendid, and ever since I bought it I have never been 100% sure, is it a skirt or a dress?  Doesn’t matter as I have worn it both ways!  (by the by, Splendid is having a fantastic summer sale right now – just click the blue word!!)

This is my cool girl with cool architecture in background pic… (I actually took this pic myself while HH went to get the car, using my iPhone with the reverse camera option – trying so hard not to laugh while I take it!)

I bought these Tom Ford sunglasses in Firenze this past November and am still v in love!

Here is a little medley of more maxis!
