This past weekend was TOASTY in NYC…just the way I like it. Speaking of hot, let’s add a bit of edge to your summer wardrobe, shall we? Lovely! I’m so glad you agree.
Summer has officially kicked off! I don’t know about you, but I think that’s one fantastic reason to celebrate. I’m ready to kick back, throw on some shades, and… Wait, specifically what shades you ask? Well, I plan on celebrating summer with six of the best possible sunnie styles that I’ve found this season. I’m beyond excited to announce that I’ve teamed up with the popular eyewear brand, Foster Grant this summer, to show you my absolute favorite shades from their collection. I’m crushing over these styles, and I have a feeling that you will love them too.
Summer sundresses, picnic blankets, and a polo match? Yes please! Top that off with some Veuve Clicquot bubbly, and you’ve got yourself a perfectly dreamy afternoon at one of NYC’s swakiest events, the Ninth Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. The match is held at Liberty State Park, and is a competition between Nacho Figueras’ Team Black Watch and Team Veuve Clicquot. This year, we attended with event with two of our closest friends, Nick and Blair.
Memorial Day Weekend is behind us, and you know what that means? It’s time to “up” your little white dress game, and take a nose dive into my favorite season; summer! Lucky for you, I’m here to help. If you’ve been following Sleepless in Sequins for awhile, you know that little white dresses are the bubbles to my champagne. I have too many to count. Therefore, I’ve taken my little white dress closet inspiration, and found a ten, devine dresses that I know you’ll adore. So, follow my lead and shop until you drop. Several of these beauties are on sale, too. The sunshine is calling your name, is it not? I thought so! I hope you had a lovely holiday weekend. As always, if you need wardrobe help, or a bit of style inspiration, shoot me an email. I’m happy to help. Lots of love from me, in sunny NYC!
What makes you happy? Is it the big stuff or the small stuff? Maybe it’s both. This past weekend, I spent treating myself to the little things that I love, and it made such a difference in my weekend. I cherish the quiet moments in my days; the ones with the sunshine on my face, walking through the park, while sipping on a latté from my favorite coffee shop. So, I did just that.
No, I don’t mean those melons! (But, we’ve got those too.) I’m talking about the hottest spring and summer accessories of the season! You may be jetting off to some sunny destination sometime soon, and you won’t want to leave these behind. They are the fanciest floats you can find, and they are the perfect addition to your spring or summer pool party.
Ok, I’m going to admit something embarrassing. When it comes to swimming, I’m slightly terrified of the ocean. Swimming pools, I do much better with, however when it comes to being active on vacation, you can either find me at the hotel gym or running on the beach (close to the water, but not actually in it.) I can be talked into walking into the water, but only until about shoulder level. I think it started at a young age, due to wearing contacts. I never wanted to get them wet and salt water is insanely uncomfortable.
Before we left for our trip to Maui, it was fashion week, and I was consumed with quickly piecing together several looks for fashion week events. By the time fashion week had ended, finding resort pieces for our trip became difficult. Luckily Victoria’s Secret has an amazing swim collection and I quickly fell in love with a pastel printed cover-up (similar here), that would be perfect for a day in the Maui sunshine. I already had a contrasting neon swimsuit (similar here), and knew the color would coordinate perfectly.
“Congratulations! You look beautiful!” “Oh! Thank you. I’m not getting married. I just really love the dress.” It happens to me all the time. As you know, I have a thing for white dresses and our trip to Maui seemed like the perfect time to sport the last of my favorites for the season. I found this beauty in the racks of a million gorgeous pieces at the Lulu’s Style Studio event, during New York Fashion Week. We were able to choose whichever outfit we liked best, and a few of my blogger babes were with me to approve my decision. I loved the combination of the creme lace, along with the long chiffon fabric that draped to the ground. The fabric moved beautifully, and I knew this piece would be a stunner, when we photographed it on the beach.
Her name was Norma. I fell in love with her the moment I laid eyes upon her. She was everything I had dreamed of, since about the age of five. Sophisticated and elegant, she had a sort of grace about her. You see, Norma was the first wedding dress I fell in love with exactly three years ago. Of course, I didn’t name her Norma. The bridal gown was designed by Watters, and I first met her at Lovely Bride, now located in Tribeca. Many girls dream of their wedding dress, their entire lives and of course I was one of those girls. Norma had me at hello. I wanted a dress that I could twirl in, and Norma sure took me for a spin. She was the very first gown I tried on, and the one that walked me down the aisle on my wedding day.
