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 paired over an Adea camisole. 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.

When we saw Crazy, Rich Asians, the smash romantic comedy of 2018, we all agreed that one of the standout performers in the movie was Awkwafina (Nora Lum) – she was a definite scene-stealer. By the way, where are the sequels? The latest rumor is that filming will start with two movie sequels filmed back-to-back in 2020. Don’t bet the rent money. But never mind, when they do come out I’m sure they’ll knock our socks off.
I have a subscription to Air & Space, which is a bimonthly magazine that was first published in 1986 and comes from the Smithsonian. It’s especially relevant this year because this is the 50th Anniversary (1969-2019) of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong’s first words – as he stepped down onto the soil of Luna were, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind,” as the whole world watched.
Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not a morning person. This means that every day I get up, fire up the computer for emails, stagger into the kitchen to make a blistering hot, strong 20 oz. mug of coffee and finally, click on New York’s Channel One to check on the weather and/or news while sinking into the sofa and trying to wake up. Ergo: I hate mornings or as Moss Hart once famously said, “Nothing happens before noon, that doesn’t happen after.”
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.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
