But What Will I Wear?

As buds start popping on trees and we stroll in honey coated sunlight, it's finally time to shed sweaters and thick wool socks here in the Boston area.


At last there is a bit of humidity in our hair, and our skin is no longer dry and weather beaten. We're all looking a bit rosier and yummier I must say.

But then begins the age-old, Grinchy question of "But what would I wear?"

Each season I look in my closet to see if there is something that I can resurrect from 20-30 years ago that is currently trendy. To feel just a mite bit hipper.

Please. Anything.

However, I am not always successful...

What follows are the Spring/Summer fashion trends for 2015:

Shirt dresses
Funky Boho prints
Gingham patterns
Omg no way
Sheer fabrics that make you feel like you aren't wearing anything
Midi skirt lengths from the 60s
Fresh florals- big, bold and feminine
Roomy, cropped, baggy denim jeans
Military greens
Sounds like the wrong season
Kimono style jackets and coats
Mesh fabrics
Can't imagine myself in a jumpsuit
White lace
They always say this
Mixing/stitching contrasting fabrics together
Flats, slides and sneakers
My poor back
Polo shirts
Too preppy
Blue & white color combinations (as well as timeless black & white)
White on white
Apparently there is a shade of yellow for everyone.

Happy dressing :-)
And Happy Mother's Day to all you hard-working mamacitas out there.
Let's put our feet up.
