A Few Things for Summer

Jun 9, 2011

 

Polyvore Set Found Here.

The Swash Scarf is proof that a hideous scarf when unfolded can look really cool when draped properly.  I love the mix of colors in textures in the pattern.  Grey and muted nudes will be lovely all year round.

A wooden clutch is something new and different.  And you’d be surprised how adding an avant garde piece like this can really lift a white sundress or LBD.  So instead of the standard canvas or raffia, branch out.

I loved the brogues that seemed to be everywhere last Fall.  Unfortunately, I have size 9 boat feet, and without a little skin showing, my feet look huge.  These cut-out saddle shoes are the perfect solution.

Sometimes it’s nice to have a few inexpensive sundresses around for Summer weekend wear.  This way, you don’t have to worry if they get stained, sweat on or need to be thrown away in August.  This floral dress from Delia’s is adorable and perfect for a weekend picnic.

Nail polish in the warm weather months can get a little crazy: yellow, aqua, white, etc.  But I like to keep mine either classic red or bright pink.  This honeysuckle nail polish, from OPI, is called Elephantastic.  GOP pride and a pretty polish? Sold.

I have a thing for birds, esp. swallows, so I love this simple hammered cuff.  Perfect with casual or work attire, it’s a real statement piece.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer
