Style Soireé: Summer in Style w/ Lord & Taylor
My look of choice was a combination of forgetting my real bra and wanting to channel my inner Mary Poppins on a hot, summer day. My tee was a part of Lord + Taylor’s Pride Collection and such a statement of embrace, exactly the tone I was trying to set for this shindig. A good white pump is GODLY, memorable if you will and these from Jessica Simpson I threw on from the shoe department reminded me of all the moments this season I’d like glide into. #Blessed
This was my first solo event since birthing my little peach and it was immensely special for me to have been able to do it with Lord + Taylor, who’s mission, as a timeless retailer, has been to consistently cater to the moments of real women. It was something to have shared that moment with all the women in attendance also, almost like a union of the sun’s, a full walk around the moon. I left feeling confirmed and confident to continue my pursuit on educating real women on owning their stylistic spirit, while embracing my colorful new lifestyle. That’s what makes women so darn marvelous, we are our OWN biggest confirmation of magic. Go slay on bae.
My motto this summer was “Don’t ask for permission, give notice”…
For several reasons outside of just trying live my best #hotgirlsummer, but most closely, because I wasn’t ready to be perfect or posh and wasn’t going to carry the pressure nor allow it to stunt my pending glow-up this season. I teamed up with Lord & Taylor to compile some of their season must-haves and a group of real women to put them in.
I created looks made up of fit, trend factor and #summervibes. The summer tends to make us want to shed some layers, some weight (physically or hypothetically) and forces us into the driver’s seat to create new memories. Occasions to dress up are flowing and the energy to own your inner spirit animal is is too.
