June 14th, Reader’s Request- How to “Summer-ize an Outfit”

  Today’s reader request is from a local Seattle gal- who wants to dress ‘summery’, but also realizes that it’s only 55 degrees outside.

This is a tough one- because while everyone else in the country seems to be wearing summer clothes- we in the Pacific Northwest are still faced with really cold temps.

We want to look appropriate for the season- but we are also a practical bunch of people!

Today I’m showing how I took a black long sleeve wrap top and by making very minor changes- made it look a little more ‘summery’.

To do this I need to show more skin!

I opened the neckline a bit (this was done by loosening the wrap a bit), added a white tank underneath, pushed up the sleeves and rolled up my jeans. I added to bangle type bracelets and switched out my ballet flats for sandals.

Now I’ll be warm, but also don’t look too wintery.

What are your suggestions for dressing for the season?

I’m Always Up for a Party!

I’m entering into a contest* this week sponsored by the fabulous Kristina at Pretty Shiny Sparkly . The contest is titled Arm Party- and the assignment is to stack as many bracelets as possible on. I guess this is the new trend~I’m learning as I go!!

So crack open the champagne, here is my Arm Party! I’m wearing a combo of bracelets, the one with 3 chains is Silpada; the black, white and silver are all from Kohl’s and the small braided one is David Yurman.

Let me know what you think! Is this something you you’ll try?

* Leave it to me- I was late for the party… the contest ended August 3rd. Oh well, I had fun trying! I’d still love your comments and feedback.
