Luxury Silk Loungewear

 

Happy Monday! Hope you had a nice weekend. So, depending on where you are, some things in your town have probably started opening up. Coronavirus or not, I find myself still staying home for the most part. And, sometimes I put on a cute outfit but other times, I’m in my pajamas. Red Valentino and Ciao Lucia have some cute luxury silk loungewear available for pre-order on ModaOperandi. We’re all in the house so why not splurge on some nice silk pajamas?

Don’t Forget about Dad

Good morning! I can’t believe it’s mid-June but Father’s Day is coming up and well, don’t forget about Dad! I’ve always been a daddy’s girl and I can’t wait to spend time with my father on Father’s Day. From playing with my dad’s belt (as pictured above) to attending my father’s non-profit Inner City Youth Golfers, Inc. (ICYG) events, I am still my father’s little girl. What are you planning to do for the holiday?

Nordstrom has a great Father’s Day gift guide and some of the items are on sale. I came across some great Luigi Bormioli tumblers that your Dad can use for his favorite drink for only $30 as well as a great Brixton hat that is currently 40% off. Walmart also has some great gifts that include grills, exercise equipment and more. Check out some of the gifts below and enjoy the day!

Paige Denim Overalls and Walk to The Beach Face Mask

Happy Friday! I know there’s a lot going on in the country right now and life can be overwhelming, but you have made it to the weekend. Best to take good care of yourself, whatever you have to do.

In order to help keep you safe and healthy, I’ve developed some cute masks that have found their way to the artwork shop. Yesterday I wore my Paige Denim overalls (similar SJYP here) and Walk to the Beach face mask to run a few errands. Why not collect several masks and enjoy wearing them with different outfits?

Proenza Schouler Masks for Mayor’s Fund

So I started wearing a mask to go out and run errands amidst the global coronavirus pandemic. And, as a New Yorker, my heart goes out to the essential workers and vulnerable people of the city. Proenza Schouler is supporting the relief efforts in the city with seven limited edition masks made from archival collection fabric. 100% of the net proceeds are being donated to the New York City Mayor’s Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund. So you can be cute, protect yourself and help the situation in New York at the same time. See more below!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

So, Mother’s Day is May 10 and quickly approaching us. Although most of us can’t take our mom out to brunch, we can definitely still make it a special day for mom! I came across a few cute gift ideas, check them out below.

1. Johanna Ortiz High-Rise Linen Pants– These pants are perfect for the spring/summer. They’re cute, airy and linen. Mom might love these.

2. Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker– We are all spending more time at home during this coronavirus quarantine, why not gift mom a great speaker so she can relax outside with her favorite music?

 

3. Skims Shapewear– We all could use a little shapewear to get in that dress. Try gifting Skims Shapewear to mom, she might really appreciate it!

 

4. Makeup Mirror with Brightness Control– this makeup mirror turns on automatically as your face approaches and moms love a good face beat!

 

5. Bottega Veneta Jodie Handbag– Splurge on mom and gift her this gorgeous handbag! The bag comes in three different colors too.

English Rose Sequined Shorts Remix

It’s getting warmer here in South Florida and that means shorts weather. I pulled out these English Rose sequined shorts that I bought some time ago from a boutique in Soho, New York. I was just thinking how much I appreciate small boutiques. You find some of the most unique items to add to your wardrobe! Farfetch is supporting boutiques around the world with increased visibility, help running their business and a cut to the boutique cost to use their platform by 25%. Take a look at the sale here.

But, anyway, I love these shorts but honestly didn’t get to wear them that much in New York because of the weather. But I’ve kept them and gave my outfit some pizazz with them today. Changed it up and wore them with sneakers. They can easily be dressed up and down. What have you been wearing to run your “essential” errands?

High-Fashion Durag

So Rihanna is gracing the cover of British Vogue in a durag. And, well, durags have been making their appearance on the red carpet too. Guapdad reportedly wore an 11 foot durag “train” and Solange Knowles wore a durag to the Met Gala in 2018. I find the trend to be really cool but I feel like you have to have some guts to wear a durag on the red carpet.

What do you think of the trend?

Perfect for Home: Eberjey Sleeveless Lounge Jumpsuit

So, how is your quarantine life going? I remain positive that 2020 won’t be such a bad year somehow. Hopefully.
Anyway, I’ve been in the house doing all kinds of things and have found myself wanting to be comfortable but somewhat stylish at the same time. I came across this Eberjey Sleeveless Lounge Jumpsuit that seems perfect for wear at home. Neiman Marcus happens to be hosting a gift card promo where you earn a $50-$600 gift card with a purchase and the code GCSpring.

Check it out and let me know what you’re wearing in the house these days?
