SUMMER STRIPES & FLOWERS
We’re still a couple weeks away from the official calendar start to Summer and the temperature definitely reflects that. We’ve been experiencing high Summer-like temps that then drop back down to cooler Spring temps. One day we went all the way up in the 80s and then back into the 30s, crazy right?! I don’t think I’ll get used to that, no matter how long I live in NYC. One minute you’re hot and the next you’re reaching for a light jacket and scarf.
Today’s maxi dress is quite perfect for the fluctuating weather and I actually wore it on Memorial Day on a little excursion to Governors’ Island. It was a much cooler day, so the maxi length of the dress helped to keep my legs warm, not to mention this pretty blue and white stripe evokes a nautical feel that’s perfect for Summer.
To play up that seaside glamour, I accessorized with a gold starfish cuff, gold/pearl slides and a nautical beaded vintage purse but also kept it feminine and fresh with floral accessories. I kept a light cardigan on hand too because your girl was not about being cold on the Ferry ride over to the Island or even while eating delicious ice cream from Brooklyn Ice Cream factory when we got back.
