OOTD: Summer Solstice Edition

Cleveland is a city that really comes alive in the summertime! It offers fabulous weekly festivals like Edgewater Live and Wade Oval Wednesdays where live music, food trucks and a general good time turn up in abundance.  On Wednesday I decided to check out the Summer Solstice Celebration at Lakewood Park – known for the somewhat newly (2015) constructed Solstice Steps where local residents gather each night to watch the sun set over Lake Erie.

While I rarely wear shorts anymore, I decided to this night.  Hey, if you can’t wear shorts in Cleveland on the longest day of the year, when can you?  This pair (and the top) are older items in my wardrobe but the shorts reminded me a bit of a current pair from Sandro.  The pink and black combo takes me back to my 1980’s teen years!

Resort Wear 2017 – Evening Wear

Welcome to the last segment of our 2017 Resort Wear series!  The focus this week is on evening looks.  Whether you are planning a candlelit dinner on the beach or a night of bar-hopping, we’ve got your looks covered.

Romantic Waterfront Dinner Date

You’ll look stunning for your waterfront or beachfront dinner date in this silk one shoulder by BCBG.  The dress is paired with low-heeled, nude sandals – one of my favorite pieces to travel with as they go with virtually EVERYTHING you might want to wear in the evening.  Black, white, brights, pastels, skinny jeans; these sandals will work with them all. Dramatic drop earrings and a Caribbean-bright clutch complete this look.

For a night of bar hopping in town, I found an strapless maxi dress with an amazing knot detail in the back.  Throw on a pair of flat sandals and a denim jacket and you’re ready to go.  The white Everlane backpack can be used while sightseeing during the day and carried by it’s top strap at night.

A detailed black lace tunic and low heeled sandals dress up a pair of neutral ankle pants for an early dinner with the kids followed by activities at the resort. The peach wrap will help keep off the evening chill.
