Take Cover

Summer is finally here!  Insert “Whoop Whoops” here.


School is out for the bambinis, full time playtime has arrived.  #dogdaysofsummer

This is the perfect time to buy sun protective gear.

SPF a plenty… Skinhealth makes it so easy to stay healthy while still enjoying the sun!

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!

Hat Head Luxe

All hail the fur pompom.

  
Seriously THE accessory for Winter 2016.

Prices range from $10 for a street vendor version (perhaps the pompom is synthetic squirrel, perhaps not…),

To mid-range versions offered by Milner extraordinare,  Eugenia Kim.

 
Up to stratosphere versions topped with fox from Loro Piana.

  

Whichever pompom tickles your fancy, know that moms everywhere are rejoicing about all the hats being worn!

  

Snow Flake!

Seriously, a sense of humor, cute winter accessories and a solid supply of champs are all absolute necessities when buried under 4+ feet of snow (and more coming later this week!!).

A fur pompom is THE hat this season, from the yoga studio to the grocery store to the school bus drop off, the pouffy fluffy pompom has been sported on tons of yummy mummies.  Eugenia Kim, the milliner mistress, allows her pompom to speak for itself.

With snowdrifts taller than me at 5’9″ that brilliant colored pompom is a hugely appealing selling feature!

Canada Goose jackets seem to be more visible than the actual honking feathered geese themselves.  The hat on the other hand is less recognizable but fabulous and WARM!

Who can’t love a hat that is furry and comes in hot pink, among other choices?

Rolling the perfect snowball takes more than just skill.  The perfect furry mittens need to help mold the arsenal.  Moncler’s leads the pack and knows just how to handle the packing snow too.  reversecommuter’s favorite winter activity is the surprise snowball attack as the children get off the school bus #mommieshavefuntoo!!!

No snow day is complete without a pair of metallic moon boots!

This classic boot has withstood the test of time, let’s see how these babies handle a toboggan ride!

Blinding snow is no match for Fendi’s cats eye glasses made of acetate.

Now get out there and embrace winter…I will be right here making sure the champs is perfectly chilled, hot chocolate is so overrated!

Hat Attack

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

Amazing how cool a big floppy hat can keep you.  My current personal fave is found at Shan. Click here to go BA-NA-NAS over Shan (purrrrrrrrrrr).  Happily reversecommuter is about to hit that Toronto boutique in an impressive manner!

The other really fab thing about a big ol’ floppy hat is that it is an UBER EASY way to make an outfit!

All in the Name of Charity…

I am going to a charity event tonight at ScoopNYC, and I have a little wish list of items that I want to get, all in the name of helping others (and what better excuse is there than that?!!)

Summer is coming, and as intoxicating as a good tan glow is, it is horrible for our skin!  😦

To combat UV rays in a fashionable manner, add a fabulous chapeau!

Here are a few ideas:

J. Crew delivers this dandy at a mere $ 38.00, so when it gets smushed in your beach bag, there are no tears.

Jessica Simpson Collection (for real) offers the uber floppy for a lovely $ 38.00, just in time for the Triple Crown!

Eugenia Kim, oh how I heart your hats Eugenia, offers an awesome fedora for $295.00 at Net-a-Porter.  Better to keep this one out of smushy places!

My personal summer standby, cowboy raffia.  It goes perfectly with sun dresses, cut-offs and bikinis!
