Because Sometimes Only the Best Will Do


Daily, I use average drugstore shampoo/conditioner/soap/etc. in the shower (think Dove, Caress, St. Ives, etc.). However, sometimes, I'll dip into my "luxury" stock. Here is what I swear by...



L'Occitane Aromachologie Volumizing Shampoo

This smells SO good!
Very mild! 
Best stuff ever. 
 
What do you use when you want to feel pampered... I'm always looking for new things to try! Have a fabulous day!

That Girl


If you've been reading Summer Wind for a while, then you know how absolutely obsessed I am with Bewitched. No, not the movie, but the old TV show from the 1960's. I am literally obsessed with it. My roommates can confirm this because I have Bewitched on my TV at all times and own almost all of the seasons on DVD. I love that it is light and funny and the biggest reason: the clothes. Samantha Stevens is one of the best dressed characters I have ever seen. I always watch it and then try to recreate some of her outfits-- 99% of the time, her looks are so put together and timeless! My parents recently recommended another older show that they thought I would like called That Girl starring Marlo Thomas. I ordered a season on Amazon and cannot get enough of it! It aired around the same years as Bewitched so the style is very similar! Take a look for yourself...

Isn't her style fabulous? I wish I could find more pictures to do Marlo's style justice because it is classic and feminine all at the same time! Have you ever seen That Girl? Have a fabulous day!

Just Keep Swimming


I have swimwear on the brain today. Each swim season,I buy one or two new suits. I have quite the collection now but can't resist adding to my collection each season. Here are the ones I'm loving for this year! 
 I fall in love with a one piece every year. This year it is a Trina Turk. I can never actually bring myself to purchase one, but it happens every year. 
This Madewell bikini is very unique. Plus, I love the navy and kelly green together!
This Ella Moss bathing suit has me ready to hit the treadmill and then head to the beach. I love the blue hues and the fact that it is reversible is a big bonus. It's like getting 2 suits for the price of one! 
 Another Ella Moss beauty! I love the ruffle detail-- most of my suits have ruffle detailing.
Because we can't forget about the gents, right? Vineyard Vines is always on point.

Which suits are you loving for summer?
Have a fabulous day!

TieTry


When Scott, from TieTry.com contacted me to let me know about his online tie website I couldn't help but share. This concept is so great! It's a little like Netflix but for ties. Basically, you add a bunch of ties to your que and then once you get them, you can keep them as long as you like. Once you return them, you get another shipment of the next ties you have picked out. I love this idea as a graduation gift for a guy. That way, the guy can enter his new job with plenty of new ties and then try out more as he goes! Here are some of my favorites:
Isn't TieTry such a neat concept? Have a fabulous day!

The Importance of a LWS: Little White Shirt

Last week I posted my review of the Bag Lady Papers by Alexandra Penney. I loved the book, but she made a point to talk about her love of white shirts. Particularly, Penney loved the white shirts from Lands End. It got me to thinking about how much I rely on my white shirts. I wear them at least once a week if not more. 
 See. Just these two outfits alone are from last week and they both incorporate the white shirt in very different ways. My absolute favorite white shirt is a Ralph Lauren oxford cloth button down. I also have several others that are not as classic from places such as Banana Republic, J. Crew, and Madewell

Do you love a classic white shirt? Is it a staple in your closet? Have a fabulous day!

KEP Designs

Have you heard of KEP Designs? If you haven't, head right on over to their website to check them out. KEP Designs is headquartered in Manhattan and is known for their tulip style clasp. See for yourself how gorgeous the jewels are...
I wore this gorgeous necklace with a simple Ralph Lauren cable knit. The piece was definitely a show stopper and really popped from the grey. 
My favorite picee is the long strand of potato pearls. They are to die for! Simply elegant but a little updated. 
I love the long gold strand from their flower collection. It's classic and gorgeous and literally matches with everything!
These gold rope bracelets are one of my favorites. They are simple and understated and the perfect thing to add to any arm party.
I love that all of their pieces are so colorful! 
I love that KEP Designs does bridal as well. They can make anything you'd like whether it's for yourself or your bridesmaids. I know, I'll want to have KEP Designs as a part of my wedding someday. 
Now, you get the chance to add a piece of KEP Designs to your collection!
Thanks to KEP Designs, this gorgeous cuff could be yours!

cCm!


Last weekend, cCm went to her Snowball dance. It was one where the girls asked the guys. She wore the dress I wore on New Years Eve and I have to say she looked fabulous!
 cCm and daddy
cCm and her date! Doesn't she look so pretty?!
The whole group!
I absolutely loved high school dances. I looked forward to each and every one and am proud to say that I went to them all! They are such a fun thing that is kind of out of the norm for a high school-er. Plus, I think it teaches the guys how to treat a lady and how to be a gentleman.
Have a fabulous day!
