Hot! I know, everyone is in the same boat - so I’m focusing on my favorite comfort clothes for you- one step up from a bathing suit!

Shorts and tee’s are the way to go!  This Willie Nelson tee from Golden Goods has a story - the photographer actually sat with him for this photo session and couldn’t get over the amazing creative energy!  Perfect with an Amo denim short
or easy Wearables Clarissa short
or Trace short skirt!

Finish off with this Pedro Garcia sneaker - sure to get their mileage this summer!

I always talk about Xirena for the summer and it’s still on my list.  The lightest of cotton poplin and the perfect sleeve length for these hot summer days!  Whether you pair with a short, a short skirt or Frank & Eileen capri pants - you’re sure to be comfortable- and the best part of all, they launder beautifully! Don’t forget that hat

Italian line Gi ‘n’ Gi from Tuscany is one of my staples. Stylish and functional! 

Continue in comfort with this easy wedge from Spanish designer Pedro Garcia- the perfect neutral color to carry you through summer!

You know I love my feminine touches - so I just have to ease into summer with CP Shades skirts!  
Comfortable, breezy, washable and oh so versatile! Depending on my mood, I might throw on a CP linen blouse,

a Revel tee or tank or even a lightweight Minnie Rose cotton sweater for one of those (hopefully) cooler summer nights!  My Officine Creative butter soft off white sandal is the finishing touch!


Remember, accessories are key.  How stunning are these Rosa Maria rings?  I know by now, a lot of my DJ girls have started quite the collection!  Seeing Rosa Maria in Paris is always one of the highlights of my buying trips. I just feel more pulled together when I stack on some of my favorites!  

For anyone heading to the Carolina’s, Jersey Shore or the Hamptons, there’s nothing fresher than a true “classic vibe”.  Nothing fits that bill better than Frank & Eileen.  Their knee length Mary dress is always one of my go to’s- wear it on its own with my Birkenstocks, throw it on as a cover up over a bathing suit or wear open with a tank and skinny linen pants.  This season we have it in this fabulous window pane design in a lightweight linen blend. 
Or if you'd like that punch of color, go for this Neon Pink?

To run around town in hands free comfort, don’t forget to pick up this Jack Gomme backpack.  If you haven’t discovered this European line yet, you’re in for a treat!  Their styling and lightweight fabric is not to be beat and this backpack is the perfect size - and weight- to throw in all your essentials! 

Of course, I can never skip over offering their  Eileen blouse!  I know, I’ve heard it, “how many of these can I possibly have”!  They’re just so easy and comfortable - the answer is a lot!

Now, we never hope for a rainy day, but when they do come I just have to throw on a pair of comfy jeans

How cut is this new crop, wide leg style from Frank & Eileen?  Perfect for the summer!  And I love it back to this new stripe blouse.  

Not a fan of crop? Throw on a pair of Nili Lotan with their signature Raphael classic blouse.  I can’t seem to take off my Kerri Rosenthal baseball cap - perfect on those bad hair days but just a great basic that always seems to be with me!  And for those who like a smaller bag, this crossbody Jack Gomme is the answer - plus I love extra pockets!

For something with a bit more attitude, choose one of the wonderful new prints and patterns from Italian designer Miki Thumb.

 Cotton and crinkled - can you ask for anything easier to travel with?  For those who are obsessed with Pedro Garcia’s clogs, add this fabulous new color in off white - the perfect summer addition!

Chufy always has some fun offerings and this season they didn’t disappoint!  Happy and colorful - just twirl in their dress and you can’t help but smile!  Flutter sleeve or short sleeve- dress 

or blouse - you're sure to find a style that works!

So I have to offer you something for that slightly dressier occasion - but still comfortable!  The answer?  This crinkle, spaghetti strap dress from Ulla Johnson!

Perfect to dress up or down!  Don’t worry - Pedro Garcia has you covered!  Lunch with friends?  Throw on a flat sandal and denim jacket (just in case you happen to get cold)!  Need to dress up a bit- opt for the block heel- both it is this fabulous neutral metallic shade of Mink.

For an even more special night, how beautiful is the asymmetrical, one shoulder ruffle dress in this  gorgeous shade they call River? You feel like a true lady wearing it!

Just add a classic pearl earring to finish the look.


So as everyone gets ready to enjoy their summer, please remember to hydrate, put on that sunscreen, wear a hat and most importantly have fun!!
