When people mention in passing that Summer is almost over, I don’t want to hear it. I love the hot days that give way to warm evenings. Even more so, I love that I can wear light layers and enjoy watching the sunset later in the day. In my effort to keep a firm grip on what’s left of Summer, I put on this boho white dress. The whisper thin fabric allowed me to enjoy the heat while these boots kept me warm as the cool breeze crept in at night.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been traveling and running all over the place for work. When you compound that with the fact that I have been working long hours, it’s easy for me to get in the habit of eating poorly. Especially since the kitchen in my day job is filled to the brim with junk food and snacks that never seem to run out. To combat my poor eating habits over the past few weeks, I wanted to make myself a healthy snack. An acai bowl is something I grab from the juice bar when I need some energy. I was so pleased with how easy and delicious this recipe is. It satisfied my need for a healthy snack with a sweet kick.
My style tends to be sleek with a touch of something unexpected. A lot of it is derived from childhood vacations spent soaking up the edgy fashion in Manhattan. Butterfly sleeves always seemed to me to be the opposite of edgy and sleek, thus, not for me. When I saw this dress on the mannequin, I liked the way these flutter sleeves felt like part of the movement of the dress, rather than just tacked onto the sides. It inspired me to style these sleeves in my own way, by adding a cinched in waste with a wide belt.
There are times when I put an outfit on just to lift my spirits. This week, we had an expected day of cloud cover and grey skies. Since I relish the warm weather, I was disappointed to see the sun wasn’t going to come out. When I put this full and fun skirt on, it instantly put me in a playful and happy mood, ready to conquer the world.
