Sorry for the delay, my gorgeous readers! But I finally present to you my June installment of my favorite things.
It appears that we have skipped directly over spring and landed ourselves firmly in summer here in New York and in much of the country. With that (and a trip booked to Miami this month) I have my eye firmly placed on warm weather dressing of all kinds.
Boys + Arrows- For when you finally make it to a beach, you won’t want to step foot in the sand without wearing one of these swim suits. They are by far my favorite brand and I’ve been buying them up like they’re going out of style (but they aren’t!) I love their unique prints and sassy little bottoms. They have a variety of cuts and styles that I haven’t seen anywhere else, and the quality is to die for. Everything is double lined so you really feel secure in these suits. I love that the tops are adjustable as well, because, lets face it, very few of us are an easy fit when it comes to swimwear. Here are some of my favorite styles in particular: this top, this top, this top, these bottoms, these bottoms if you dare, and this one piece
Off the shoulder tops- For me, there’s no accessory greater than (safely!) sun-kissed skin, so this month I’m focussed on creative ways to achieve that goal on a daily basis without actually stripping down. If you’ve been following along since my blog’s inception, its no secret that I’m a fan of shoulder bearing silhouettes (as seen here) I’ve been seeing a resurance of it especially as of late so I’m calling it out as a favorite and a must have for any girl’s closet this summer. Here are a few more of my current dressier favorites: here and here. And my casual ones: here, here, and here. I also love this peek-a-boo cold shoulder here, and love a bare shoulder in a dress as well here and here.
Nudes- No color screams summer to me right now more than nude. And I love plugging it into my daily look in my accessory choices most of all. Either donning a shiny nude nail lacquer on my digits, or a nude shoe to elongate my legs; nude makes me feel like a sexy bronzed goddess. Nude sort of ups the chic level on any outfit and can even elevate a casual denim look if done properly. I love it paired with darker colors and richer fabrics for nighttime, or with bright pops of colors for day. Its understated and can play quarterback to any statement piece in your wardrobe. Coincidentally, it looks amazing with my favorite on trend color of rose which I also can’t seem to get enough of. These are some of my favorite nude shoes right now: flats, lace up heels, chunky slide, slingback flat form. For your nails, I love this set. Perfect for every skintone!
