Summer is coming

Although it seems that many of us just got through winter, spring now seems to have slipped right past us. Women are wearing sleeveless dresses and shirts to the office already, and it got me thinking about ways to start getting into the summer mode.

Here are five items to start shopping for now to get you ready for summer:

  1. Sunscreen. I'm an advocate of sunscreen, but I do believe that not all are created equal and reading labels is a must. A good resource to look into the ingredients of your favorite sunscreen is the EWG's Skin Deep Skincare Database, which offers insights into many sunscreens on the market. 
  1. Sunglasses. Not only are sunglasses much-appreciated by your eyes, but they are a fun way to spice up any outfit. Try a colored pair of shades or a uniquely styled frame to change up your routine.
  1. Tees. You know my love for tees, as chronicled in Sporting A Tee For Any Occasion.They are a classic piece that can be dressed up or down and perfect for those balmy summer nights.

Be sure to check out Adea's Modal Tees.

  1. Reading Material. There's nothing better than grabbing a good book or your favorite magazine and sitting on the porch, in the park or even at the beach while reading. 

Here's a fun challenge for you. Next time you are reading while enjoying the scenery surrounding you, try to turn off all mobile devices, so you can truly soak in the experience and savor the moment.

  1. Something Outdoor-Inspired. Whether you are a runner, walker or biker, find that something that will motivate you or excite you to go outdoors, such as a new pair of running shoes, a new sports bra or downloading some new music to your device. Take this time to enjoy the sunshine and the memories it can create.

Living in New York City, it's amazing what beautiful days can do - they bring people out in flocks to simply enjoy the park and the outdoors. I often wonder where they have been hiding, but it's probably the same place I've been for most of the winter - indoors.

Enjoy summer, as it sure feels like it's on its way.

Living Way “Below” One’s Income

February 20, 2020

I’ve never liked cheapskates. I once worked with a guy who – when we went out to lunch – would make sure he only paid for what he ordered. And when it came to figuring the tax he made sure the other person paid the extra penny. The result was that, instead of just “splitting the bill” there was a lot of bookkeeping and figuring going on. After awhile no one would go out with him.

The Museum of Modern Art: A $450 Million Upgrade

February 12, 2020 1 Comment

On November 1, 2019, I decided to visit MoMA on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues to see the final result of this stupendous project that opened for all to see on October 21st. Frankly, I was amazed at the number of people who showed up. After all, it was a Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm. People should be at work – or at school I thought. Or, was it because this was the day after Halloween? Obviously, I’m a bit out of it because MoMA was like Times Square on New Year’s Eve – but not quite. Everyone was very well behaved and incredibly focused and interested in the art.

The Movie: Downton Abbey

February 05, 2020

On Tuesday, October 8, 2019 – the first day of Yom Kippur – we headed out to our favorite Kips Bay Theatre (2nd Avenue and 31st Street) for a 6:20 pm showing of Downton Abbey. Kips Bay currently has a terrific deal: If one signs up for an “Insider” card (it’s free) you can see a first run movie at any time during the day or night on Tuesdays for $6.00 – which is pretty incredible. Or, paraphrasing The Godfather, I’d say, “That’s an offer we couldn’t refuse.”

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
