Sweater season is almost here.

I love a cozy sweater. Thank goodness there are endless style choices this season. Cropped, asymmetrical, long, oversized, fringed, frilly, colorful, edgy — yes, everything you can imagine.

This one, in particular, I have my eye on. Made with touches of mohair and wool in a chunky, slightly open knit, this asymmetric hem sweater by Ann Demeulemeester spawns a plethora of fabulous looks for fall. It comes in cream and black for easy outfit coordination, whether on the neutral or colorful side.

Hail to the sweater!

While you will typically find me in all white during the summer, I do not shy away from black.

Did you know that black best absorbs heat and, therefore, is more cooling than white garments? In fact, black also absorbs energy from the body instead of reflecting it back (like the color white). 

The key to wearing black in the summer is keeping to lightweight fabrics. Anything too heavy or clingy will make you look and feel uncomfortable, so opt for cotton or linen in lightweight finishes. Pair with chunky heels or wedges. Throw in a little balance by showcasing your skin — perhaps a bit of shoulder or leg.

oneearringtrendThe one earring trend continues to woo me. I just like it. A lot.

And this earring is quite unique.

The sculpted Sansoeurs pieces are inspired by the shape of the human body. The "G" earring, cast from 18-karat gold, loops through your piercing until the shimmering diamond sits as a stud at the lobe. 

A fresh twist on the typical.

Yes I would.

Just look at those sandals! And the handbag. Oh, yes, and the cotton and silk-blend top and skirt. While ruffles are not my thing, somehow Chloé makes it fabulous, in lace and chiffon.

70s meet 2017 chic.

Oh the adventures to be had in this dress!

As much as I have a thing for white dresses, so do I with prints!

Enter: Marimekko.

Brought back from the 70s, the Kirjo print is a certain showstopper. Founded by Armi Ratia in 1961, Marimekko is a play on words — an anagram of Armi's first name and 'mekko' which means dress in Finnish. Marimekko's use of print and color is world-renowned for its forward-thinking aesthetic. 

I am captivated by this dress. For more reasons than one, as I will be living in long dresses all summer to shield my veins from the sun due to my EVLT and sclerotherapy sessions. As bad as my timing is, the experience thus far has been awesome, and hey, I will look cute (during the process and after)!
