Happy Monday and welcome to an all new Stylish Monday Style Post and Global LInk Up Party! Speaking of style, what comes to mind when you think of summer fashion? Lounging poolside, mimosa in hand? Lakeside in a swimsuit and sarong? Dining al-fresco in all white outfit? Denim shorts and a flowy tank top for a picnic in the park? Sipping sweet tea on the patio in a simple tank dress and an oversized floppy hat?
For me, the Pandemic has changed how I view my wardrobe. Now more than ever, what we wear can set the tone or mood for the day (more in Why What You Wear Matters | HERE) – and these day’s I’ll take a mood lifter whenever I can get one! For example, when I want to be transported poolside in Palm Springs, I might don a Caftan in my backyard. Dreaming of cocktails with friends? I throw on a kimono, my fancy gold shoes, and pour myself a sangria spritzer. And who knows, with the right outfit you may find yourself turning up the speakers and dancing alone on your patio as the sun sets. Getting dressed for “me” each day has given me the freedom to experiment and take more risks when it comes to fashion, with comfort, elegance, bold color choices, and unique prints at the forefront – pieces like the Caftan I’m wearing today.
What I’m Wearing
I’ll admit, I have a weakness when it comes to a gorgeous print. So when I saw this stunning Jennafer Grace golden yellow palm print Caftan, I knew it needed a spot in my wardrobe. A truly effortless piece, I can pop this caftan over anything from a swimsuit to a bralette and feel chic and fancy all day long. And when I needed to pick up a few things from the market, I simply tied the hem in 2 knots, added a banana bag for my money and mask, and was ready to go. I’ve never received so many compliments in the grocery aisle before!
