More from Tennessee

Sun, fun and…comfort.
Summer tank with shorts and comfy shoes. Perfect for a day full of walking around seeing the sites.

I previously talked about mix and match pieces when you pack – it can be a whole new outfit with just a top change!
It’s all about maximising that suitcase space.

Travel Time

If you have a love for clothes, shoes, handbags, accessories… or ALL of these… there is one thing that scares you more than humidity for curly hair. Packing.
First of all I am not, I repeat NOT, a clairvoyant. I can NOT see into the future. How am I supposed to know what I will feel like wearing tomorrow or the next day??????

So while I can’t take this pain away completely, I will share some tips to try and at least ease the pain of packing.
(1) Claim as much luggage space as possible if you are travelling with a significant other
(2) Pick one or two colour themes
(3) Try a few pieces that are easily “mix and matches”
(4) Avoid changing climates if possible (when going from hot to cold packing those massive jackets takes up WAY too much shoe space)

With the above in mind, I went with a lot of red-white-blue recently for my 4th July trip to Nashville.

Longer sleeves keep you warm if the plan is overly air-conditioned (though with split sleeves that was questionable lol).

Finally – fun in the sun!

After a long NY winter where the Polar Vortex introduced itself, it was a very welcome change to finally be enjoying a weekend outside on a deck with some sun. No puffer jackets required!!!!

This weekend look was built around my favourite pants at the moment, the AG Stilts.
I am obsessed with them. They are flattering, comfortable – and I want them in every colour.

The complete look – with open toe wedges Yay for warmer weather.

Florals and corals

Summertime should not preclude you from wearing black.
Au contraire – you just need to make it feel more summery with some florals, or a splash of colour!

My favourite colour this season has to be anything in the coral family. I am finding myself drawn to anything coral spotted on the rack.
So pretty and feminine.

So here is my version of a summertime “black” outfit.

Love this Alex Perry top with a beautiful big floral pattern, an interesting vest-like shape at the top and flattering pleats.

Little BLUE Jacket

I have been patiently (well mostly) waiting for the weather to be warm enough for me to rip the price tag off with glee and skip outside!!
Bewitched by this colour.

Green Glam

St. Parick’s day doesn’t need to be filled just with tacky green accessories – and leave you questioning if you can ever wear green. There are plenty of beautiful, fashionable items to adorn for the festivities.
Some green-spiration for the Irish in all of us!
