Keeping Cool in Summer Dresses

Keeping Cool in Summer Dresses
Dresses for Summer? …GROUNDBREAKING!

First off- if you get that reference, THANK YOU! But as much as it makes me laugh, it’s true! Now that NYC is in phase 4 of COVID recovery, I’m spending more time outside and realizing quickly how few lightweight and airy items I have for summer! Don’t get me wrong, I’m stocked with tanks, tees, and summer sets but it would be much easier (and cooler) to not wear pants! Ladies, I KNOW you get me!!! Sometimes shorts simply do not cut it. We need breezy, loosing fitting items for those SUPER hot days and summer dresses are it!

A Curvy Girl’s Guide to Swimwear

GIRL…

MAYBE I’m going out on a limb here, BUT I’m going to take a wild guess that at some point (regardless of your shape, size, race, or age) you’ve cringed at the idea of wearing (or even shopping for) swimwear.

And I get it! I’m a curvy girl you can find somewhere between loving her thick body and balancing PCOS weight fluctuations, who has ABSOLUTELY had those same cringey moments…

And I’m here to remind you, that it’s okay!We all have THOSE moments, THOSE days. But the key here is to not continually live in those negative feelings, and instead find a way to channel them into LOVING and celebrating your body NOW. Don’t get me wrong…truly learning to love YOU where you are NOW is a process! But as always, I want to share ways I’ve learned to love me in the moment in hopes of making your journey a bit lighter!

3 Summer Styles to Add to Your Wardrobe NOW

3 Summer Styles to Add to Your Wardrobe NOW

When I wrote my Spring Style blog post, I was CERTAIN COVID restrictions were coming to an end! I was confident life would be back to “normal” by summer…and…here we are. Although New York City is on the brink of normalcy with retailers and restaurants slowly reopening (within restriction of course), I’m ready to show off my summer style NOW (even if it is just for dinner with my husband or socially distant drinks with friends on my stoop).

One of the BEST things I’ve done for myself during quarantine is edit my wardrobe. Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time asking myself the important wardrobe questions like what colors am I drawn too? What fabrics do I find most comfortable (and sweat the least in LOL)? What styles make me feel the most ME?

What I’m Wearing AFTER Quarantine

What I’m Wearing AFTER Quarantine

Don’t get me wrong, I’m doing my best to live in the NOW and appreciate the little things, BUT that doesn’t mean I’m not still dreaming about life after quarantine.

In fact, I’ve recently caught myself day dreaming about the food I’ll eat, friends I’ll hug, and places I’ll travel post quarantine and THAT’S OKAY! I mean, we all need something to look forward to, right? Personally, I think as long as we allow dreaming about life after quarantine to motivate us rather than discourage us, it’s absolutely healthy and OKAY!

And like the true fashionista I am, I can’t help but dream about what I’m going to wear after quarantine, too! Creating outfits that express my personality and mood is an artistic and inspirational outlet for me, so it seems like a fair addition to my list of post quarantine dreams!

But the question is…what am I wearing after quarantine?
