June Blog


Posted on May 30 2023

Even as I write this, I can’t believe June is here!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Now we’re officially into summer mode!
Thank you to everyone I’ve been hearing from that loved last month’s blog.  I’m glad you found it helpful in planning your packing - and a thank you to all those who shared pics wearing their DJ outfits on your wonderful travels.  Your destinations looked amazing- as did you!  It gave me the travel bug - and I don’t mean work related!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes nothing speaks louder to me than some quality down time.  Appreciate my home, spend time with a great book, a little me time or enjoying the company of friends.  Especially for those returning from your amazing travels, I know how nice it is to walk in that front door and sleep in your own bed!  
Summer is all about easy!  A pop of color, a lightweight denim short - anything to beat the heat (and look cute)!  As always, Sundry comes through with this terrific destination tank
paired with Amo’s relaxed fit high rise short. 
Not a short person?  Opt for Sundry’s roll-up cotton pants. I’m sure a lot of my DJ girls already have at least one of their great colors in their closet by now!
Kerri Rosenthal always offers fun, whimsical designs.  Whether you choose a graphic heart tee
or one of her oversize shirts, you’ll definitely enjoy them all summer long.
For those cooler nights (if you’re lucky enough to have any of those), her cotton sweaters are the perfect choice! 

Don’t forget to top off your look with one of her signature baseball or bucket hats!

It has been a while, but we just received a wonderful collection of tee’s from the Italian line Printed ArtworksUnique prints and a variety of styles to choose from - they’re always a conversation starter!

Farm Rio isn’t to be left behind with this black and white floral print.  Doesn’t it just put you in the mood to explore some beautiful, tropical garden - and there are so many beautiful ones right in our Florida backyard!

For everyone that’s been waiting, your new colors in Revel tee’s and tanks are here!  I know everyone has been loving all the style options, terrific colors and how beautifully they launder. Time to stock up

Such a classic look back to a simple Mason’s pant, Calleen Cordero studded sandal and the finishing touch- the perfect size Marie Turnor leather clutch!

CP Shades just has to make an appearance in your summer collection and their embroidered pieces continue strong! This time in their beautiful seafoam blue.  Their new crop cargo in a linen twill is a perfect pant to work back to so many of the tops I’ve been mentioning!

Of course, there are those days a tee shirt just won’t cut it.  No worries, we have some wonderful blouse options for you!  You can never go wrong with white, but color is just what summer calls for and Xirena never fails!  Their ever popular cotton voile Channing blouse in this fabulous new purple orchid has just the right length sleeve- yes, it covers the upper arm!
For something a bit dressier, choose this beautiful cotton/silk floral.  So fresh and airy!

 Perfect to pair back to their easy white wide leg pants or a pair of jeans if you’d rather!

Show off those arms with this sleeveless option from Amo- relaxed fit and how refreshing is this beautiful shade of apricot!  Of course, you can never have enough white in your closet.

Even though it’s summer, there are those occasions where you have to pull yourself together just a little bit more!  As you know, we’ve been loving the TWP blouses, the lines are so classic and the fabric is divine!  Now introducing the Boyfriend blouse!
Pair with  Moussy’s Marilla jean- these have become one of my favorites for the summer! 
  This washed denim Western inspired blouse and wide leg pant is absolutely a hit for summer!

For a fun day of exploring or shopping in comfort, choose this versatile and comfortable outfit from Italian designer -Totem. I love  white with all shades of beige - so fresh . Don’t forget to grab a hat as you head out the door- not just a fashion statement!


 Go Silk consistently offers some unique, easy blouses and tees.  Whether you choose the classic Go Polo shirt 

or this crinkled, seamed blouse, it’s the easiest way to elevate your look!

 How fun is this safari inspired shirt jacket?  A piece that will definitely make the travel wardrobe packing cut!  

Everyone probably has at least one piece of Norma Kamali in your closet- and it’s probably black!  So how perfect is this new grouping in this luscious shade of bone?

Whether you wear as an outfit or take advantage of all the different ways to style the pieces, they are great additions to freshen up pieces in your wardrobe.

Nothing speaks to me more on those hot, summer days than a dress. You know I love my floral Ulla Johnson dresses, but to switch it up a bit, California based designer Porto offers some wonderful choices.

With their European styling, there’s just something simple but edgy in these pieces.  Not to mention perfect for traveling since they don’t wrinkle and are washable!  Just add a sneaker or your Pedro Garcia sandals.  

And for something that can take you just about anywhere- my favorite Jaga dress- now in this ultra fresh white linen! The perfect dress for a hot summer day!  

Heading into summer, please remember how important it is to take care of our skin and the dangers of skin cancer.  At least you can do it in style with this fabulous hat from Lola.  

Being a sun worshiper back in the day, I’m paying for it now! 

What I noticed as a small pink spot on my forehead turned out to be something more!  Thank goodness for dermatologist Dr. Amelia Damse and plastic surgeon Dr. David Applebaum for taking such good care of me!

So let’s be smart, safe and have a fabulous summer!
