Squad Goals!

I am a goal focused person.


In order to push myself I set goals.  It helps me grow, achieve and strive on a daily basis.


A great t-shirt reminder never hurts!  Suburban Riot’s t-shirts are a favorite go to of mine.  Inexpensive, fun fashion pick me ups.


Imagine the happy squeal when a fashion blogger named reversecommuter found a t-shirt company called Sub-urban Riot?!  Match made in heaven!

Perhaps a rash guard or two… Cabana Life has been a fave for years (both for children and adults).

Maybe a fun sun skirt (with a secret built in compression band) that works as a great poolside lounging accessory!


SwimRISE has recently launched this clever creation, and even has a Fourth of July version, complete with stars and stripes  The brand, created by a mother daughter entrepreneurial duo in Florida, is sure to update pool & beachside elegance!

Finally to top it all off, a big ol’ floppy hat to combat the sun wrinkles!  Eugenia Kim is the queen of sun hats.  Also check out Regine Chevallier, her line of hats begs for an accompanying yacht!

Now go, splash, laugh, swim, play, giggle, repeat!

Jonathan Simkhai Spring 2014 is a collection of feminine cuts, playful forms and flattering knitwear that can be ‘everyday incorporated’.  reversecommuter has been a fan obsessed with his clothes since first introduction 2012, and each season the designs improve to a new, unimaginable level.

Lucky for us Jonathan, dreams come true!

reversecommuter is loving the slit godet tank – silk, sexy, versatile – bound to be a favorite basic in my Spring wardrobe.  The classic cropped turtleneck – ridiculousness reinvented! Jonathan’s knit pencil skirt is quite possibly one of THE most flattering (aka forgiving) knit pieces available!  Click the blue phrases, go shopping and wear gorgeous clothes!

If there is one thing this past weekend’s heat wave taught me, it is the bigger the better when talking hats!

Skinny jeans are fab, no argument.

But once in a while it is fun to mix it up.  Bring on the bell bottoms!

Just be aware of proportions – identify the waist with shorter jackets, tucked in tops.

It is guaranteed that there will be bell bottoms at Coachella & Lollapalooza this year (click the blue words to see the line ups for each music festival). So why not start the trending right in the burbs?!

Sun, Sorels & Sleds

My family.  Yummmy!

And they let me dress them, because they know I love all things fashion.

I am SO a fan of Canada Goose outdoor clothing. Jackets, hats, puffer jackets, vests. Bright pink, yellow, black, blue, turquoise, white. With fur, without. Anyway you choose, deliciousness!  This hat is uber cute and warm too – nothing better than that combo in January in Boston!
I have it on good authority Canada Goose is a family owned company, third generation running it now. Reinvented itself by sending out complimentary jackets to the crews of movies filming up in Toronto. Smart!  (don’tcha love a little scoop?)  Click the blue to visit Canada Goose.

This is in my backyard.  Great park for snowshoeing, tobogganing, running and hiking, and renting the fantastic party space too!house

reversecommuter is always waxing on about investing in good pieces.  My jacket is a perfect example, and I am a total wimp in the winter, so it was a smart investment too.  Moncler.  Click the blue to visit and drool!
sillysnowA fabulous fashion friend of mine exclaimed that it is easier to drive in 6 inch Jimmy Choos than it is in these Sorels.  TOTALLY AGREE!!!!!
