There are some years where spring seems to linger, and it's great. Spring is one of my favorite seasons. Then there are other times that spring seems non-existent and winter goes straight into summer. This got me thinking about a summer wardrobe, as with my travels, I have already been hit with some hot and humid summer-like days. Of course, this gives me a reason to talk about summer wardrobe styling!
For this post, I've rounded up some ideas to get you summer ready.
A Linen Blazer
I've talked about blazers before, including paring over one of our camisoles. So for this summer, be sure you have a linen blazer. There is something classic about linen. Yes, it can wrinkle, but it's a great fabric for summer. And, a blazer is an ideal way to dress up your look or simply to take you from the office to a night out. I'm seeing pastels around, and if you can wear these colors - go for it! Otherwise, a classic white is always good to have.
Shoes can take your look to another level. So, for this summer, try to invest in a pair of quality sandals. By this I don't mean a pair of walking sandals, which of course are always good to have too, but a pair of [flat] leather sandals you could wear with jeans or a dress. If you already have your go-to pair, try adding a new color this season. Otherwise, stick to a basic color for your first pair. In this way, you can get a lot of use out of them and won't tire of them as quickly as you would a trend-based look.
Try A New Color
Surprise! This one is not about clothes but about your hair. For this summer season, why not go a little lighter? Try a few more highlights or try some highlights. Also, you could even add some lowlights just to add some depth to your hair. Simply put, try a subtle change to freshen up your look - even if it's an inch off of your hair length or wearing it naturally curly when you would normally straighten it. You'll be amazed with how even a slight change to your hair can adjust your outlook on the summer season.
And of course, no matter what you do to get ready for summer, remember to have fun!
P.S. Don't forget to stock up on Adea's camisoles before summer begins.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
