Whoa – it’s officially summer and I’m so ding dang dong thrilled about it. This weekend was a gift from the cosmic gods – I literally stepped off of a train and onto the beach last Friday and it was like BAM *SUMMER*. Usually Memorial Day weekend weather can be temperamental and downright iffy but this past weekend was pure sunshine and lemonade. And in turn, my summer wardrobe is in full effect over here – which means white denim is pretty much all I’ll be wearing as far as pants go for for awhileee. And since (in addition to red, white and blue) embroidery and pompoms are high on my list of things I’m looking to be adorned with, this balloon sleeved jacket is a total win. Holy sleeves, right, you guys!? I’ve been into a flared/bell/drama sleeve for awhile now but these days a balloon sleeve is really what gets me. This one has totally got it right. The perfect summer layer – for those nights you need more than, well nothing, but still want to look rad as hell – throw this bad boy over a crop top and you’re set.
But moving on from sleeves: summer means much more than just a major wardrobe shift. It means freckle weather, outdoor dining, America season, fresh food every damn day season, so many puppies outside in NYC season – you get the gist. Let’s enjoy the crap out of the next 12 weeks you guys.
Have a happy short week – and don’t let the post holiday weekend blues get you down because in just three short days it’s round two. xx
