Linen & Lace

As the summer season is nearing the end I will gravitate to looks with layers!! I love linen and a bit of lace!! Linen gives great shape and form while lace adds texture to an everyday outfit!!! I do love summer, a favorite part of the year, however there’s nothing like fall dressing! So let’s get into the beauty of seasonal shifts and venture into these amazing fabrics!

I love the transition that comes with each season, especially when layering is involved!! I took my Bachelorette party dress, yes a few years old, and layered it with this fantastic up graded tee with dollar store beads and a fringe vest!! Look at your dress as a possible skirt or maybe a top!! When you can see your wardrobe worn in different ways the possibilities are endless.

Talk about a necessity! LBD.. (little black dress)! Most of us have more than one, however I am happy to say this linen has lasted the test of time!! Add pops of color at the waist with belts! Keeping everything a basic black accessory except one special piece creates a show stopper in the look!

Lace is a great detail added to simple pants or a skirt! Pair it with sneakers to be fall ready for pumpkin picking and colorful nature walks on trails uncharted.

These complimentary colors give that perfect fall vibe.

While transferring color pallets from summer to fall, neutrals are KEY to making a no effort look.

Late summer linen pops easily reinvent style norms and celebrate color! The hotter days and cooler nights make this dress a wonderful pairing with a denim jacket.

Thanks to Tina Demel and her wonderful boutique I am Absolutely obsessed with the evil eye! Anything eye related for that matter!!! Go black and white, tie up a color popped t-shirt for day to night!

So what linens and lace can you see sliding into your wardrobe while summer slips away?

Polka dot dot

Summer to me screams fun! Care free, not knowing what time it is and playing with prints! In this blog you will be seeing spots, dots that is!! See how polka dots play a whimsical approach to a simple print that anyone…yes even you, can wear!

Polka dots go with just about any pattern or print!! Think of these little, and sometimes big dots as a neutral!

Ah the marriage of stripes and dots...so simple and satisfying! Pop this combo with a great color!! These crayon pillars were created in my art club a few years back and I absolutely love them! Reminding me every time I show up to continue to be good, try hard and NEVER give up!!

Big or small dots always have a point of sophistication!

Talk about whimsy..pink AND polka dots yes please!!

Do polka dot camo …..black on black! Fun and sparkles!!

Metallic dots are probably my absolute favorite!! Whimsy on cloud 9!! Adore a navy too..it pops these dots so well and super easy to pair with any color!!

So shop your closet for dots, any dots, all dots and get inspired by pairing them with anything!! To me they are like a glue for any outfit!! They add a bit of whimsy and cheer!!

Fruity Frills

What is one of your favorite treats for summer? Of how I love my sweet treats, however there is nothing like fresh fruit in the summer!! So here is a spin on how fun, flirty and in season fruit prints are for the hot summer months!!

To have fun with fruit can be as simple as black and white! Add a piece of fruity fun jewelry! This Necklace I made out of Model Magic by Crayola! The pineapple earrings from Mure and Grand!

Sometimes fruit frills are hard to find in adult sizes!! Go to teen or kids! I found this colorful dress in the girls department at Walmart! I got the largest size available then layered it like a t-shirt!! Stay with colors in the print for pairing layers and accessories. Here’s a cute adult size fruit print dress!

I did the same thing here with this tank dress! Tuck it in for a top and pair with a like color for a monochromatic vibe.

So bananas about this print, sorry had to! This is an oldie but a goodie!! Found the exact dress here!!! Do you shop Poshmark, or Ebay? This is a great way to be a fashionista that is a conscious buyer!!

Orange you having fun with this blog yet..lmao again couldn’t resist! Now is the time to find amazing prints for woman, they are whimsical with frills. This dress is the Perfect summer party dress!!

So will you be mixing up and playing with fun fruit prints the summer?

Island vibes

Summer calls for fun in the sun, bold prints and magical moments! Putting together these looks definitely brought me back to Hawaii, Aruba and Bahamas, 🎶come on pretty mama🎶 ok yes I am that corny and that old..Lol! So even if our destinations may not be to a tropical paradise we can have fun and bring the vibe through our wardrobe!

Layers of a dress tied on one side with is a great way to use pieces in different ways and up your style game!! Overly large sunnies command attention and bright pops of jewelry, top it with a straw fedora to tie everything together!

White dresses don’t have to be plain…look for pieces that have embroidery pops at the neck. It brings a little color splash and adds details without layers of jewelry!! Be resourceful and reuse a gift ribbon for a headband!! The more creativity the better your style will be!

Nothing like an island vibe like an island print!! This dress is a favorite staple in my wardrobe!! I wear it alone, layered with another skirt or a sweater!! It’s a super fun unexpected print to see ALL year long! Flower accessories are a must!!

Larger than life floral prints are always a great way to bring out the vacation feels!! Focus on one color in the print and repeat it with your accessories….always a win!

When you find the large flower prints pay attention to fabrics like linen and cotton to stay cool and comfy all summer long!!!

Sheer chiffon is a great light weight fabric to tolerate sleeves in the summer! Seashell necklaces layered are a sure win for island looks!

I hope these inspire an upbeat vacation style even if your vacation happens to be in your back yard or a local beach!

Want to know the ONLY two pieces you need this summer? Sara Joy kaftan and sarong. This blog will explore some of the MANY ways you can style Sara Joy pieces to look your absolute best!

Use the kaftan to cover a strapless for added pizazz! Summer was made to be colorful and bold!

Or go short to cool down and show off your sun-kissed legs!!

Or better yet cross the ends and tie around your neck for a quick fashionable sun dress vibe!

Wrap it across the chest for a beautiful calf length strapless…add a bit of gold or metallic to make it pop.

Wear the kaftan back wards for a closed kimono vibe!

Wear the kaftan forward to look like a sleeved dress or bottom top match for a perfect afternoon lunch!

Use the kaftan with shorts and a tank!!

Spring prints into summer!

While everything around us in New York is coming back to life it jolts my fashion choices with prints! Love Spring for its Romantic vibes full of fun and whimsy! This is my spring roundups of prints!

If you don’t already know I am obsessed with French Macaroons! The shell, the chewy texture, the cream!!! They are just such amazing sweet treats! Spilt Milk macarons is my go to for French Macaroons!! So yummy tasting and looking!! They matched so well with my Alice and Olivia macaroon blouse!! Bringing in the whimsy with this print!!

My take on what Glamping would look like!! My Mom created so many memories with an R.V. that had a fire place in it…now that’s my kind of camping!! This is definitely more my speed than camping in a tent!! This dress may be one piece but creates shape by accentuating my waist. This dress is very similar.
