There have been thousands of migrating butterflies passing by my window for weeks now, foreshadowing the start of a new season. I have welcomed them with open arms as I know summer is arriving soon!
Yes, it is not Summer quite yet however I can’t help but feel the need to purge my closet, put away the winter clothes and bring in the lightness of the warmer weather.
I love the anticipation of my days in Malibu, parties around the pool, lazy hot days and bottomless mimosas with friends. I'm ready to soak in the sun and indulge in the planning of beautiful summer outfits and gorgeous accessories.
Summer accessories are like the supporting best friend, accentuating the best features of your perfect beautiful self. It’s adding texture to a cake, beautiful playful frosting. And that’s what fashion is all about, right? Fun, Experimental and sometimes even disastrous! Yes, even a professional stylist has these moments! Regardless of where your style takes you, all that matters is that you FEEL GOOD in what you wear.
Style is personal. Style changes. Style is purposeful. During the winter season, fashion becomes warmth centric. It’s about layers, and you’re probably only wearing one or two outfits on repeat, with different tops underneath which no one ever sees because it’s too cold to remove your sweater. The nuance of style is lost in the discourse that is winter.
If a tree falls in the forest, but no one sees it, did it really fall? If style exists in winter, but no one sees it, is it really style?
So I challenge you, why don’t you add an accessory or two? Or maybe three?
My Summer Accessory guides are about to challenge your predisposed ideas on what dressing for Summer means.
We are going to tackle these micro questions for our summer accessories features in the coming weeks:
• Are your standard sunglasses the middle child of accessories?
• Might I suggest you make life easier with a fashion travel accessory case?
• Is it too early to talk about vacation beach bags?
• How nostalgic hair accessories are shaping the biggest spring fashion trend.
• Burning questions on how to wear a hat this Summer
• Unpopular Opinion: Seasonal jewelry is a real thing.
Even though Summer herself is yet to show face, let’s prepare the festivities for her arrival. I, for one, am going to take the the meaning of the butterflies in my garden right into my closet and allow a rebirth of style!
Have a beautiful weekend everyone!
