Well, being quarantined has certainly put a different lens on what trends I am embracing for summer. The truth is that the things I normally love in the summer I am loving more, and the ones that—given the circumstance—seem frivolous or not appropriate I have let go by the wayside. I don't really seem to have a reason to wear certain things now that I usually love this time of year, but I'm sure once we are on the other side of all of this I will be back.
Right now, it's obviously all about comfort and simplicity, but I have been reaching those things that help me feel feminine and a bit whimsical, too, like a gorgeous white blouse. I haven't been wearing much jewelry, but I have found that I am gravitating towards fun accessories that spruce things up a bit like headbands and fun bracelets and rings. At the end of the day, while we are all quarantined, remember to take care of yourself and do get out of your sweats every once in a while.
Letting Go: Strappy Sandals
I can't imagine even putting a pair of shoes on other than say Birkenstocks or sport sandals. Lately, it is a big deal to put on sneakers, so the idea of wearing one of those gorgeous strappy sandals is the furthest thing on my mind. Fingers crossed next year they will still be on point.
At this point, I am only wearing shoes that are easy on and off and super comfortable. Of course, my go-to is my Birkenstocks, but I did splurge on a pair of the Proenza collab. My new favorites are what I consider to be a chicer version of Teva's made by Suicoke. Oh, and I did buy my first pair of Crocs.
To say I have gone minimal with my jewelry would be an understatement. These days, I am wearing a wedding band, stud earrings, and a necklace that I never take off. Most days I don't even wear a watch. In the past, I have always found summer the perfect time to sport a great statement necklace. Lately, up until all this madness, I would say the more necklaces the better since this was always a great way to make a basic white tee shirt something fun, but currently, I am really feeling less is more.
