Friday Link Love, Vol. 1.92

Friday Link LoveCan you believe it’s Friday Link Love time already?!

This was recital week for my 6 year old and after what seems like a prolonged Ground Hog Day experience, it’s nice to wake up to a Friday! Last night was the final performance and we couldn’t be more proud of how our little girl rocked her dances. Dancing aside, the joy we witnessed as she came off the stage was enough to convince me that my dance mom days are far from over. Although, I can’t lie: I’m beyond thankful I have 2 months to recover before all that starts up again!

While I slowly sip my coffee and enjoy the quiet of my house, here are this week’s Link Love reads to get YOUR weekend started right!

5 Summer Neutrals You’ll Wear Over-And-Over

summer neutrals street style fashion outfit the heart's delight

I know this post may be contrary to everything you’ve ever known and loved about summer fashion, but you need to know: summer neutrals are where it’s at.

Yes, bright colors and bold patterns are more typical of summer style, but hear me out here. Summer neutrals can become a beautiful way to embrace the heat and take a more understated approach to this season’s fashion. These 5 pieces can also be easily mixed-and-matched into a closet full of brights, as well as with each other.

Pretty much a win-win scenario, no?!

Friday Link Love, Vol. 1.91

Friday Link LoveWell, I wanted summer and I got it.

This week has been a scorcher! The highlight of my week was the official start of summer camp — a.k.a a parent’s summer savior. I drop them off in the morning and at the end of the day I get happy, sweaty and exhausted kids. Just the way I like them. They’re also wild, ravenous beasts. I can’t keep up with their appetites! They literally eat non-stop between the hours of 4:30-8pm and don’t even think about making them wait even a minute. You might lose an appendage. Ah, to be young again with a burning metabolism. Must be nice!

Now, for the good stuff! Let’s get to this week’s edition of Friday Link Love!

The New Romantics

The New Romantics Street Style Spring Trend Header

If you’d ask me to come up with a phrase to best describe this spring/summer’s most prevalent trend, I’d probably say: The New Romantics.

Yes, that IS in fact a TAYLOR SWIFT SONG… BUT it’s just so appropriate, I can’t help myself. Sorry, Tay-Tay.

The New Romantics fashion is a blend of feminine, flowy, ruffled and occasionally floral style with edgy, modern cuts and unique silhouettes. It’s as if our girl Taylor and Lady Gaga merged their fashion aesthetics and had a love child.

If you’re curious as to whether this trend is for you, here are the 4 pieces you need to achieve this New Romantics look:

East Coast vs. West Coast Style

east_coast_west_coast_style_header_collage

For years, the East and West Coast of the United States have been at odds.

You’ll see East vs. West duking it out over national matters as serious as political ideology and human rights, to more trivial issues like the epic rap battles of the 90’s — I’m totally team East Coast, by the way. In Cleveland, don’t even ask an East or West-sider which part of town is best! Let’s just say, their answer will be slightly biased. In NYC a matter of blocks can completely change your outlook on life, death and the best bagel store in between.

No matter the physical distance, there always seems to be a difference of opinion between the two groups — fashion sense, included.  In the case of style, I’d be hard pressed to say one is better than the other. In this case, I think we can call it a truce and draw inspiration from both!

Easy-Breezy.

easy breezy minimalist summer fashion header

I guess you could call this summer, the season of all things EXTRA.

Extra pattern, extra volume, extra embroidery, extra ruffle — on everything. The maximalist styles of your wildest dreams are now reality. While I love all of this “flare” — both metaphorically, as well as LITERALLY, it’s nice to take a step back and fall back on some easy-breezy, minimalist summer fashion to keep from visual overload.

Hey, they call them classics for a reason.

Friday Link Love, Vol. 1.89

Friday Link LoveHow are you doin’ over there? Still with me this morning?

My Friday has not quite started off on the right foot, so I’m resetting and attempting a do-over. To make a long story short, I was trying to help the kids get ready for school and absolutely no one was listening to me. Pretty infuriating, I know. I was “this close” to throwing out the classic parenting line — “Do you know how much I do for you!?” and instead decided to walk away from the situation.

Eventually, everyone got their sh*t together, but it left me with a bad taste — if you know what I mean. Rather than stew in my frustration, I am making the decision to stop overanalyzing (What could I have done differently? Am I a bad parent? Why don’t my kids respect me?!) and let it go. In the grand scheme of parenting, I’m usually a moderately decent parent (like, 80% of the time) and they’re usually really good kids… and in this case, it’s OK to be good enough.

Good thing I have a 3-day weekend and this week’s Friday Link Love to quickly distract me from all of this mayhem!
