Summer in Winter ?
Yes, it appears so. Four days ago the temperatures reached into the high 70s! I went to the rooftop terrace and relished the sunshine!
It did indeed feel like summer in winter! You can guess I wore my SPF that day!
What an unlikely weather event! We are learning to expect unlikely weather, however. Don’t you agree? It was snowing in Seattle that day, and unseasonably warm in other parts of the country.
I wore asymmetrical hemmed denim, available on sale here ( you are welcome!) with an 80s shoulders blouse in vivid floral. Floral patterns and abundant femininity are one of many Spring Trends for 2018. Flowers of all kinds graced the runways for Spring/Summer 2018.
Denim, in a unique variety of designs inlcuding patchwork, paneled and embroidered looks is also a go-to highlight of Spring trends for 2018. I am so glad that these fabulous jeans are available now for 14.99! Act fast! ( I do not get any sort of compensation for this recommendation, but I would be remiss not to alert you as a dedicated blogger !) Please check out this photo of the denim and cool Hush Puppies loafers, that do resemble Gucci, but are not!
Below a shot of the 80s shoulders and punchy floral blouse I wore.
This blouse reads spring celebration to me! Can you feel the summer vibes?
Certainly I was thrilled to pull out my green intrecciato handbag, a leather weaving process made famous by Bottega Veneta. The lightweight bag was purchased on sale, a few years ago from a local boutique and is made in Canada. I wore some sparkly bling that caught and reflected the sunlight.
Photos of the details were taken indoors however, so you could see all of the wardrobe accruements for my #OOTD.
The knotted earrings are about 40 years old and were my mother in-law”s. You have seen them here. Details are clearer in this shot. Both bracelets are costume and fit my tiny wrist!
Below see the statistics for the Summer In Winter day! This is in Manhattan.
Blue ruffled booties with delicate studs gave me 3 extra inches of height and were fun to wear. Ruffles are another example of Spring trends for 2018. I did not realize how many trendy elements I was wearing that day and I admit that I dressed hurriedly that day so I could get outdoors! I purchased the blouse at consignment , and I think it is vintage. There is no label. Love the fun puff of the 80s shoulders!
My blue suede booties, also bought second-hand, in my bountiful closet.
The CHANEL sandals are up cycled from consignment, as are most of the other shoes you see. The rest are from eBay .
Later that day I went to the financial district with my family to see a wedding venue for my son who is recently engaged! It was quiet there. Everyone, I believe was in Central Park that day, or shopping downtown near Canal Street!
I hope you are well! I know so many are ill with the flu, the mercurial weather patterns can encourage illness, so please be careful.
