Debbie Downer

So, I'm just going to come right out and say it. . . the last three weeks have been HELL. The expression on my face in the second photo has pretty much been a mainstay during the month of July and frankly, I'm relieved to leave it behind.

Since I can't bear to leave this post on a sour note, I will say that the one glorious thing that happened this month was an early morning, spontaneous trek, down to my old stomping grounds to visit with my nearest and dearest :)

Dear August, Whatcha got?

No Reservation Required

'Date Night' dinner was a bust. Nothing hurts more than spending money on a bad dining experience. I'll be doing things a little differently this week.

This old denim shirt was purchased 5+ years ago at an H&M in Manhattan while on a business/pleasure trip with my mother and sister. I love the shirt but I love the memory even more.

Meet Your Match

I think it's pretty safe to say that 'Nudes' aren't going anywhere. Everything about this subtle, flattering hue screams: SEXY! If you don't already own a pair of nude heels, do yourself a favor and find some. They make your legs look a mile long and go with everything in your closet. What's not to love?

Shameful Omission: Noticeably absent from this photo are my Holy Grail, Nude GUESS Slingbacks (the ones that appear in most outfit posts); lets just say that for the sake of this photo, they are far to "broken-in" to pass as anything less than offensive ;)

I’m always thrilled when an article of clothing that I had the good sense to hold on to, comes back around- proving itself to be timeless. I’m a little less pleased when a closet purge goes awry and the foresight required to see something as a staple, escapes me. I’m ashamed to admit that a perfectly worn-in denim jacket, fell victim to the donation pile last year and I’ve never forgiven myself. Fortunately, the kind people at American Eagle not only make fabulous jeans, but the perfect jacket as well. It was love at first sight of this lightweight, weathered denim and the small studded detail was enough to make me swoon. Strong enough to make an impact, subtle enough to go the distance.

Something Blue

Nope, not getting married :) Just sitting here thinking about the fresh and crisp color scheme that lends itself to all things nautical. Try as I might, I couldn't muster anything 4th of July inspired, the stars escaped me and the stripes- well, they're just not a good idea at the moment. Maybe there's something buried in my closet that'll suit tomorrow's festivities. . .one can hope. In this sunny, blissful interim- a voluminous skirt, a stack of magazines and a bowl of raspberry gelato will suffice.
