This past weekend marked the “unofficial start to summer,” which is absolute favorite season. I may be the only one that lives for the steamy summer days and hot summer nights. I love the evenings when I can step outside, and take on the city, in a teeny, little summer dress. There’s nothing better than cool cocktails, on a gorgeous rooftop, seasonal soirées with friends, or city strolls at sunset for late night ice cream with Grant. Summer just makes me happy.
The holiday weekend inspired my creativity, and love for hot summer colors, therefore I began designing jewelry with the seasonal wardrobe in mind. Tassels are on trend for the summer, so I created a set of fun, fancy earrings to pair with my sassy summer dresses. My color palette consisted of orange, hot pink and red. I knew that I wanted the earrings to be the statement piece of my summer look. To design the earrings, I created three different tassels, and connected them in order of their color scheme. I fell in love with the end product, and have so many ideas in store for some new summer pieces.
Now for the red hot summer look! Ruffles are all the rage this season, therefore I found a brilliant, red, bodycon dress with an off the shoulder, and a ruffled design detail. The silhouette was perfect, and the neckline showed off the earrings I designed. Continuing with my color palette, I chose hot pink, pointed toe pumps, as well as a pink evening bag (similar here) to finish my look. I’m loving the red and pink combo for summer. It’s colorful, bold, and unexpected, yet works perfectly when paired together.
Now that you’ve learned about a few favorite summer trends, do you have hot, little, summer numbers that you love to wear? Does stepping into a fancy, summer dress inspire an evening of salsa dancing, rooftop nights, or jazz clubs with friends? Let your hair down, and live a little this summer. I hope I’ve given you a few ideas to inspire your summer looks. I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend, beauties. Lots of love from me, in NYC. xx
