Or is it? More lace, more beading, more chain, more crystal? Yes, please! More is more, so let’s live it up a little! If you know me personally, or even through the blog, you’ll know that I live for the glitz and glam, and I have quite the weakness for accessories.
We are back in my hometown of Amherst, Ohio for a quick family visit. Coming back to the town where I grew up brings back so many childhood memories. Amherst is a small, charming town with cute shops, fun little restaurants, and friendly people. I always feel such a difference arriving here from the big city. It takes me about a day to adjust to the pace of my days here, but I find it calming and therapeutic. One of the things I love most is the watching the change of seasons. Right now, the trees are bursting with beautiful, fall colors, and the air feels crisp. I can even smell the change in the season. During our visit, we celebrated my mom’s birthday, toasted with champagne, and enjoyed being together. The happiness of home, and the love of family makes me feel complete.
We just celebrated the first weekend of summer, and it sure was adventurous! It was a gorgeous Sunday here in Manhattan. I spent the weekend, in the sunshine, shopping, attending a birthday party, and spent a fun afternoon at the Central Park Carnival. Yes, there is a carnival in Central Park during the summer, full of rides, games, cotton candy, and of course, ice cream! My summer in New York has felt like a stay-cation, so far. We’ve tried to do something adventurous each weekend, besides stopping by our usual hangouts. This weekend was the carnival.
To style my outfit for our fun afternoon, I chose a bright yellow fit and flare dress from Pookie and Sebastian. There is absolutely no way you’ll ever have a bad day in a bright yellow dress. The color is so happy. It attracts positive attention and usually a smile from others around you.
On April 17th, between 6-8 p.m., I will be co-hosting a shopping event with Cara Kovacs at Cynthia Rowley’s Madison Avenue store in New York. About a week or so ago, I had a chance to try on several outfits at the boutique. One of my favorites was the Bonded Shift Dress, with a gorgeous floral print, that is both feminine and sophisticated.
New York Fashion Week is here and it seemed to bring the cold weather, sleet, and snow. This time of year, dark colors tend to dominate our wardrobes. After a few months, it leaves me longing for sunshine and brighter colors. With a quick glance through my closet, I realize that winter white and a whimsical print is the perfect solution to update to my look.
