As you may have been able to tell from many of this summer’s outfit posts, I really turn up the girly factor when it’s blazing hot outside. Feminine dresses, billowy skirts, and colorful sandals are pretty much all I wear.
I decided to try to an edgier look this past weekend by pairing some ripped up cut offs with my signature fall boots, a vintage inspired tee and a heavy metal cuff by Citrine by the Stones. And thanks to the rain I got to break out my oversize rain jacket and the faulty umbrella I picked up on the corner of 52nd Street and Lexington Ave. Gotta love those umbrellas guys for those times when you get caught in a storm, which has been me for the past few rainy days. Get.A.Clue.
I have to admit that I prefer the summery frocks during this time of year, but I’m ready to switch things up for some fall apparel because I’m starting to miss boots, pants, and jackets.

I thought April was supposed to be all about the showers. Now it’s June and it feels like everyday has a 80% chance of rain/thunderstorms. What gives!?
This past Saturday was, thankfully, completely rain free – take that weather man! – so I celebrated by taking out this pair of silky billowy pants that would probably melt from a drop of rain. Lately I’ve felt much more chic and sophisticated in a pair of extra long trousers than I have in a dress and heels. While a lot of that may be because I’m still in desperate need of a tan, there’s something about the cut and tailoring of a good pair of trousers that keep me coming back for me. Extra points if they’re made out of silky pajama fabric.

The Double Bs
Sexy time dresses have their place, and my closet is rarely one of them. I’ll wear form hugging pieces every now and then, but for the most part I stay away from items that hug the Double Bs – the boobs and the butt. But(t) sometimes you have to embrace your inner Marilyn, Brigitte, and Snooki, and flaunt what you got. Such was my mindset when I received this Cut25 body con dress, which I knew upon opening was going to be all up in my Double Bs. Since it was still a little too cool outside for naked arms, I threw on a simple black blazer, which ended up yielding a more conservative look that could perhaps even be appropriate for the after work cocktail? Perchaps? Gin martini straight up, extra olives? Hmmmkaaay.
Also, if you’re like me and prefer to detract from your Double Bs, the blazer is a great way to go. Everyone knows you’re still wearing a tight dress under there but they’re not seeing your Beyonce. Having said that, after a few gin martinis Beyonce may just be ready to come out and do the Single Ladies dance. And that is where I shall end today.
