So, um, wow. It’s been a while. I’d like to say that time flies when you’re having fun but, apart from an important summit and some subsequent time in Montreal, I’m not sure where the last month has gone at all. All of a sudden it’s June and the “most wonderful time of the year” has kicked into high gear. I find the first part of the summer to be a little bit difficult, work-wise, as I have to adapt to a self-directed schedule, which is lovely but also all too easily gets away from me. I’m getting stuff done but it all feels a little aimless. Fortunately, I leave in exactly three weeks for a conference in Paris so that deadline will helpfully get things moving.
This outfit worked really well for me, in a way that I don’t think the photos quite capture. I love the mix of coral and periwinkle blue (seriously, coral is totally the best). The cardigan wasn’t particularly necessary, weather wise, but the top is sleeveless and I wanted a bit more arm coverage.
Again, with another slightly awful picture. You should see the ones I deleted. Yikes. Something about the print was creating some horrifying optical illusions.
I bought this excellent skirt on a wonderful excursion to Joe Fresh with A-Dubs, D-Med and Kelly during the IPF summit at the beginning of May. Up until then, I hadn’t really found a way for the maxi trend to work for me but this skirt sealed the deal. Somewhat unexpectedly, I find that a printed, rather than solid color, maxi skirt or dress feels much more inconspicuous to me. It seems more casual, less like I’m wandering around in jersey evening wear. This styling here isn’t my favorite but it was super comfortable and a good first wear of the skirt.
Any summer trends you’re trying out? You can’t really see it in these pictures, but I also have neon pink fingernails in the last two.
