Open Back


New trend alert going into Fall 2016.


Open back shirts are so fun to play with, and it is a great way to transition into Fall while the weather is still delightfully hot!  

Shirt by Style Mafia, cut-offs Paige jeans, Golden Goose Deluxe Brand shoes.


A statement shirt paired with denim cut-offs or with a more formal cut short is a great way to welcome a new schedule in hot weather. 


It’s still summer even though school is officially back in session.  Sad when all the pool toys are stacked.


Details are everything.  Borrow a pair of cufflinks, Colonel Sanders-style a thin tie around the collar, get creative and have fun.

Layer Liar

Denial.  

    
I refuse to acknowledge that old man winter is right around the corner.

  
Nor’Easters.  Blizzards.  The dreaded Snow Days (mamas everywhere shudder with that phrase!).  Nope, not coming.

  
Sundresses, jean jackets maybe add a shawl or a cape if it’s really chilly.  Open toe booties help keep the dream alive!

   
 Slip a turtleneck or a white shirt under the dress if the thermometer is being particularly challenging.

    
Just keep denying the inevitable.  

1 Great White Shirt, 2 Loose Lemons

‘If you were to ask me what I wish I had invented in fashion, it would be the white shirt. To me, a shirt is the basis for everything. Everything else comes afterwards.’
Karl Lagerfeld

Nothing says Spring has Sprung like wearing a white shirt.

It is one of the most basic yet versatile fashion staples in any closet.

The white shirt is like cupcakes – they are NEVER going to go out of style!

My juggling skills are not building block material, but it does entertain everyone while waiting for dinner to be ready!  🙂

Cool White Shirt

Amazing how a white shirt – even with long sleeves – can be so cool in the heat.

Add a pair of cut offs and havaianas and it’s all good.

If only it was this easy in the winter…

All in My Head

I am in search of the perfect white shirt.

Not too structured, no lycra, no detail, just a plain, crisp white shirt.   I have a few in my closet, a variety of styles and price points, everything from DVF, Calypso to Fendi and Dolce & Gabana.  And you can click here to see a bunch at net-a-porter.com…but it’s still not THE one I am dreaming of.

It’ll be just perfect with washed out boyfriend denim, flip flops and a little gold jewelry…..
