On super hot Summer days all I want to wear is a loose dress and sandals. This Splendid zebra print dress is always a good choice.  Unfortunately we still have 2 more outfits (including this one) where my camera was acting up. Hopefully we fixed it so no more issues when my Dad takes photos, ha ha.

Dress: Splendid Zebra Print Dress (NETAPORTER, also here), Beaded Sandals: Seychelles (DSW), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Perfect Purse ostrich-effect PVC' (Net-a-Porter), Sunglasses: Chanel

It was a pretty rainy morning on Saturday so we decided to take photos with an umbrella. Of course by the time we got to the park it had stopped for a bit, but we carried on with umbrella shots even though it wasn't raining. Sometimes you just have to fake it! (And of course it started sprinkling again as we left.)

This umbrella was a special piece in the Altuzarra for Target collection and I believe was only available to giveaway winners. Somehow I got lucky and won it on Instagram! WOO!

Floral Camisole: eight sixty (dress version),  Jeans: IRO "Faxy Cropped Jean" (Gilt c/o Wikibuy), Sandals: Seyschelles (DSW), Umbrella: Altuzarra for Target (giveaway win)

This outfit is one of my favorite combinations. It's perfect for Summer because of how airy the skirt is. The sweater is also surprisingly lightweight. And the best part? It's all made by loved ones. My late Grandmother made the top for my Mom YEARS ago and she passed it on to me. My Grandma made one for each of her daughter-in-laws and daughter. My mom actually asked for a second one, and this is that one.  Then my mom made me this skirt in 2012 with extra fabric from when we made a skirt inspired by Michael Kors. I don't even wear the other skirt anymore. Whoops.

We've still had a few chilly days here and there so I've been able to wear some of my lighter, non-full sleeve sweaters. I wasn't in the mood to wear all of my rings on this day so I wore one that was passed down from my paternal Grandmother. It's a really intricate ring with 4 opals and a tiny ruby in the middle. I don't wear it too often because a) it doesn't go with the rest of my rings since it's gold and b) I'm afraid to lose or chip it.

This is an exercise in how to wear red and green without looking like Christmas exploded on you. It helps that it's Summer so the pieces are skimpier. But making one of the pieces a print with other colors helps to remove Christmas from the equation.

I wore this for a belated birthday lunch date with a friend last week. VERY belated since her birthday was in March...oops! We went to our favorite restaurant, The Chowder Pot in Branford. It is SO good. We always stuff ourselves with salad, honey butter bread, shrimp and fish! This time we shared blackened tilapia and shrimp scampi....mmm!

P.S. Happy Star Wars Day!!!! I'll be spending my day working and watching Rogue One and Episodes 4-8! May the Fourth Be With You!
