Summer is here and I’m excited. Normally, I don’t get into summer / warm weather clothes but this year feels different. I think it’s because the New York winters are SOOOOO long and brutal, that I’m overly anxious to embrace the heat.
Listen, I dont have abs. Well, I kinda do, but they’re hidden. But I don’t care. My tummy is not particularly flat, but I’m working on that. All that to say – I don’t have a rock hard 6 pack, but I still want to shop my belly and hips. Why? Because I’m feeling sassy…! My secret to showing my stomach without fully letting the belly hang out is to wear high waisted bottoms.
Similar to crop tops, bralettes are sassy. They’re also a cute, sexy way to spice up a look. These weren’t even on my radar until recently but, during a recent trip to Miami, my friends and I stumbled upon a store that was liquidating their bralette selection for 5 bucks!! So, I figured why not?
I’m not really in the mood for heels/platforms/wedges. That’s not to say that I won’t wear them here and there. But I’m feeling like being uber relaxed. If I’m going to be baring my stomach, then that needs to be balanced out with more subtle shoes.
Acrylic earrings are all the rage this summer. While I don’t invest too much into trends, I will be picking up few pair of these. They’re fun and playful and chic. Oh, and they’re colorful. I…love…color.
Otherwise, I’m stocking up on classic hoops – the big, gigantic ones. They silent killers. Simple, but bossy. You know…sassy. 😉
Growing up with full lips, I was made fun of. So I never embraced anything that would bring attention to that, especially not lipstick and especially not colored lippies.
Now – as a young 30 something – I am embracing my soup coolers. I think lip colors are an underrated way to spice up an otherwise basic, understated look. Plus, I’ve been inspired to embrace makeup more due to Rihanna bringing it to women of color and from one of my favorite YouTubers (Jay Lee’s Corner) who always fabulously calls out her “lip colors of the day.”
I’m not a beach person and I’m barely a pool person. But I’m feeling drawn to swimsuits…not just any swimsuits, though. I’m referring to ones with sexy designs, eye-catching colors, and innovative materials.
