Back In Black

Well hello Saturday! A sunny and beautiful Saturday at that. After all of the rain, storms, and humidity we have been having lately, today's weather is a lovely change of pace. I've already been out and about quite a bit already this morning. Gotta take advantage of the sunshine while I can.

romper- Express/ necklace- gift/ sandals- Express/ bangles- vintage

The other week I bought this adorable romper and I can't get enough of it. I'm not really a shorts and tee shirt kind of girl, and wear dresses and skirts constantly. But since we live near the river it is always so breezy in our neighborhood and I'm always holding down my dress while walking around to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. It's so frustrating. A romper really is a perfect solution to this issue. The look of a dress, with the convenience of shorts. Love it!

I'm beyond excited for the rest of the plans I have today. This afternoon we're bringing Rocko to a dog party at Artists & Fleas. He'll love it (I hope)! Then tonight we're meeting up with some friends and going to see two Guns & Roses tribute bands battle it out at Brooklyn Bowl. Can I just say that this show is going to be amazing. Seriously.

I hope you all are having a great Saturday and a fantastic holiday weekend!!!

Look of the Day- A Night of Dancing

Look of the Day

1) Madison Avenue Bangle Set available at Amrita Singh- $75
2) Knotted Floral Crop Top available at Forever 21- $7.80
3) Salsa All Night Pant available at ModCloth- $39.99
4) Chain Strap Crossbody Satchel available at Forever 21- $22.80
5) Geraldne Pumps available at Steve Madden- $89.95

Lately, my husband and I have been thinking of taking some dancing lessons. I remember how much fun it was taking swing lessons back in high school/college...and would love to do more lessons in the future. For some reason I always gravitate more towards dances that have steps instead of a freestyle type of dance (I never know what to do with my hands...or feet...or body). My husband loves music...but the thought of him learning steps to a dance is so comical to me. He actually seems interested in I gotta run with this while I can!

There are so many options in our neighborhood alone. We were going to attend Salsa Sunday tonight at Brooklyn Bowl, but we have plans. However, they are holding these lessons in July and August. So until next month! Another place in our hood that is on our radar is Fada. This restaurant holds Tango Tuesdays...every week! Sounds like a blast, right?

Have you ever taken dance lessons with your significant other? Any recommendations in the NYC area? Let me know.

Look of the Day- Playing It Cool

Look of the Day

1) Moto Stripe V Front Dress available at Topshop- $76 
2) Guthrie Necklace available at DANNIJO- $720
3) Zoe Hat available at Banana Republic- $49.50
4) Gone Boho Strappy Sandals available at Forever 21- $29.80
5) Mimosa of All Bag by Nica available at ModCloth- $84.99

I always say, when you really don't know what to wear, just keep it simple. There is nothing easier than throwing on a dress with a statement necklace and topping it off with a hat. You end up looking chic and it was a look that really took no effort. Such a great look for hanging out on a summer day!

Simple is always better...don't you agree?

Crazy For Kimonos

With weather like this, sometimes you need something on your arms. Jackets and cardigans are often too heaving for the humid weather of June...but going outside sleeveless (especially in the mornings) is a little chilly. What's a girl to do??? I suggest wearing a kimono. They are so light and airy, and give you that extra layer you need when the temperature is below 70 degrees...and they are so on trend right now. Here are a few of my favorites---

Medallion Kimono Cardigan available at Forever 21- $19.80

Chiffon Kaftan available at H&M- $34.95

Staring At Stars Tie-Dye Fringe Kimono Jacket available at Urban Outfitters- $79

Aztec Fringe Kimono available at Topshop- $95

Kimono in Floral Devore with Fringing available at ASOS- $91.46

How do you like your kimono? Long? Short? Full of fringe? 
I love them all!
