Summer is my favorite season but even I feel a bit daunted by the hair-wilting heat waves that have been sweeping the nation. However, sky high temperatures are not an excuse for subpar fashion choices. I've seen some truly scary fashion violations on the streets of NYC - really, there reaches a time in a lady's life when she must bid adieu to hotshorts and midriff shirts! Instead, on a scorching day, reach for a simple white dress for a look that is sexy, elegant, and refreshing.
Victoria's Secret Convertible Tube Dress
This simple strapless white dress will keep you cool and chic on sandy beaches and city streets! Designed to be worn as an empire waist dress or a flowy skirt, this travel friendly garment is made of soft cotton knit with a hint of modal.
One of my favorite summer sips is a perfectly chilled glass of sparkling rosé. Recently, I had a glass of R. Dumont & Fils Brut Rosé and it is superb. A stunning shade of deep pink, R. Dumont & Fils produces their beautiful bubbly with 100% Pinot Noir. It is full-bodied and juicy with notes of strawberry and pomegranate. R. Dumont & Fils is classified as a grower Champagne - Champagnes that are produced by independent growers using grapes from their own their estates as opposed to larger houses which tend to purchase their grapes from various sources. Available for $36.99 at Wine Authorities.
Anyplace with white sand and sea breezes sounds divine. What about Palma de Mallorca in Spain's Islas Baleares? I haven't been there in over 20 years but I can still picture those stunning blue waters.
