MILDRED IN ARUBA

A few weeks have passed since my Aruba trip and it's now starting to heat up in NYC! When we got back from Aruba, we were welcomed by hot summer-like weather which made me very happy. It felt as though I had brought the good weather back with me, however, a day later NYC reminded me of who she was. It got chilly again!

Yes folks, my space heater, furry bedroom slippers and coat were in full effect again and I was bummed. Now, a couple weeks later, we're starting to feel the heat and all I can do is think about the sun, sand and all the fun Mildred had getting ice-cream.

ACCESSORIZING LIKE MY MAMA

I love accessories and if you've been keeping up with me that shouldn't come as a surprise to you. I mean, I have a weakness for all accessories and I blame my Mom entirely. Yes Joan, if you're reading this, it's all your fault!!!

Growing up I would be in awe of Mom's extensive collection and played with all her pieces. She has accessories in every color, size and shape. From jewelry, to belts, to scarves, sunglasses and shoes; that woman is the #accessoryqueen. 

I post a a lot of my accessories on IG from my very own collection and often get asked for sources. Today I'm sharing a few pieces & linking to similar ones as many of my accessories are vintage, belonged to Mom or are no longer available. Continue reading to see what I have lined up for you! It's pretty darn good!

MILDRED'S RETRO PLAY-DAY

Hi Darlings! I had an activity-filled day on Sunday starting with a quick SoHo stroll for burgers, fries and rice pudding, a trip to Coney Island for some fun in the sun and snow cones, then a Soca party where I danced the night away (until I got really sleepy at 9:30pm, lol)! What a day, what a day! 

I also posted a handful of vids and pics of my day on Snapchat and Instagram (IG stories too) so be sure to follow along for all the fun! 

It's no secret, I love summer days and more importantly I love to let the girl in me play! I think it's so important to schedule consistent play days in your life, especially as women.  A play day is simply that; a  special time dedicated to having fun in a child-like manner. We can get pretty busy with our grown-up lives and never imagined the independent, stay up late, do whatever you want adult life would entail not so glam activities such as feeding yourself, waking up early to get to work or paying many adult bills. I strongly believe in taking a break from a busy lifestyle to do something you enjoyed as a child. Sometimes I color, ride my bicycle or produce a full-fledged music video in my room to Beyonce's Ego. This "music video" usually involves sequins, heels, a scene rolling across the bed with me singing, "I got a big ego, such a huge #RetroAlterEgo! I walk like this 'cus I can back it up!"  It's my time to relax and be silly. 

Speaking of egos, Mildred (my #RetroAlterEgo) decided to do a little playing herself while at Coney Island! Click through to see her latest threads and how you can recreate this retro play-day look for your next summer outing.
