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.

Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.
In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
Roughly eight years ago, I was chatting with a young lady in her twenties when she started raving about something called “Birchbox.” I stopped her at once and said, “What on earth is Birchbox?” Well, she looked at me as if I had two heads and said with dismay, “You don’t know about Birchbox!”
