The Splendid List: Summer Fashion

With the heat of summer in full effect, I asked some of my favorite bloggers… 
“What is your favorite go-to summer piece??”


“My go-to piece for summer is without a doubt a pair of sandals. it’s difficult to narrow it down but yes sandals would be the piece. Why? because it’s the way I feel summer is here, even if I’m wearing jeans for example. And I love how they can add a pop of color to any outfit! I also love flip flops, havaianas to be more precise! I don’t wear them in the office but practically everywhere else, I know it’s a faux pas but I love them too much, have been wearing them for almost 12 years now non stop!”

“When the heat hits, my long, thick hair becomes too hot around my neck. So I hike up my hair in a bun, and dress up the mess with a new Henri Bendel headband that I splurge on while in Manhattan for the May trade shows. It’s my simplest trick for glamming up {when secretly cooling down}.”

“I discovered my summer go-to piece from my mom, which is funny because we usually wear very different styles, especially when it comes to shoes.  The Bass Margie sandal is the exception to that mother-daughter fashion rule — they are super-comfortable (thus meeting mom’s criteria) but still look good (which is appealing to me).  I liked my first pair so much that I bought them in two more colors the following summer. I even saw them being sold at the Steven Alan boutique in Brooklyn, which was pretty flattering to my mom!”

“My go-to summer piece is less of a piece and more a state of mind! A pale polish makes me feel tan, lady like, and ready for summer. Plus, treating myself to a pedicure is my new favorite activity. It gives me some ‘me’ time and lets me feel pampered and pretty for not a lot of cash.”
