She’s Got it. Chillin’ in the Park. NYC Style.

Central Park. June 2016.

Check out this hair in The City. Slight shaving action on the side, and you transform your style to always looking funky.

I’m loving this mom’s style – and that’s why I’m sharing so many photos. She’s so simple, but gives off this slight punky-post-modern look.

Love these matte ankle rain boots paired with socks up to the calf. I’m a huge fan of pairing socks with any type of shoe, I get made fun of for it – but I don’t care. My theory is if Parisian women are pulling it off – so can I.

All black is always chic – but adding these socks makes this look funky and stylish. With summer coming soon, throw out your levi cut off’s with ankle socks and flats.. it’s a great way to take away from the sexiness of the short shorts. Here’s an example:

Fashion Notes: Seven jeans cut by me, Chanel Flats, Black ankle socks, Bohemian bag from Barcelona, Top from Anthropologie, Glasses are Ray Ban in green, earrings from India

My Chanel flats were stolen in my luggage at JFK  – I miss them. You can wear them with anything and automatically it adds some chicness to an otherwise grungy outfit (which is usually my look). Just ask Alexa Chung, the hip British model and style icon. Alexa wears her Chanel flats with everything – and still manages to look edgy/Downtown and not Upper East Side.

Singin’ her Feelings. Haute in Brooklyn.

Lucille Ghatti (far right) and Friends. Brooklyn.July 2015.

Lucille is a singer. She talks openly about her struggle loving the father of her baby, and him not reciprocating. The pain is so real, and her emotions so raw and truthful. It’s hard to share our pain – most of us like to pretend everything is perfect, that we’re happy all the time. But that’s impossible, isn’t it?

I LOVE these friends! Lucille and her stylish crew walked by me in the Burrough Hill section of Brooklyn. Lucy told me she’s a singer and new mom.  Struggling with issues as a young woman raising a kid alone, Lucille shares her struggle through her music.  Lucille has quite a following because so many people can relate and feel something when listening to her voice.

1950’s Vintage inspired high waisted bathing suit shown here. The red and white checkered bikini top fits in perfectly down in Georgia where Andrea makes her home.

Fashion Notes: Bathing suit by Unique Vintage, http://www.unique-vintage.com, Shoes by Vince Camuto, Sunglasses Cat Eye Retro from http://freyrs.com , red leather wrap bracelet handmade birthday gift from a friend, earrings by Charriol

Unique Vintage and Freyrs have such a great collection of vintage inspired clothing and accessories at affordable prices.  Thanks to Andrea, I’m learning about these online stores – now I can get a sexy 1950’s pin-up bikini – -you think they come with the pointy bras?

Legs. Swimming Pool. Platforms. Palm Springs circa 1950 or 1970?

If you want to elongate your legs, go for a high cut bathing suit…if you are short waisted, a high waist will not be flattering, but a high cut one piece will look stunning.

So much to say. This is just incredibly flattering and sexy. A high waisted bottom paired with a halter top just adds curves – even if you are shaped like a stick.

Mini-Dress. Blue Toes. Huge Gold Hoops. Haute Summer.

Marin County, California. Summer 2014.

I just think this mom is adorable.  She’s really tall and thin – so her mini dress looks amazing, and appropriate for a day at the carnival with her kids.  Oh to be tall – thinks look so different on the curvy and shorter women.

Blue toes  – great hat – floral dress – huge gold hoops (a Mara favorite) summer is in full swing peeps. Take note and have fun!!

Short Bangs. Short Shorts. Miami is Haute.
