Let’s face it, this winter was brutal. Odds are if you’re a New Yorker, you’re still spending every morning standing in front of your closet, layering yourself for schizophrenic weather conditions. As you sift through a mix of sweaters, boots, open-toes and tanks, it’s easy to wonder if summer is ever coming. Personally, by the time I make it to my local Starbucks, the thought of having to choose between an iced latte and a hot one is almost too much to bear.
A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
We love a good animal print! Why? Because it’s one of the most versatile ways to add instant glam to any outfit. You can wear it at any age, at any time of year, in any form—skirt, heels, pants—you name it!
And summer is the perfect time to experiment with different prints (girl, let’s face it, a tan makes everything look fabulous!). Experiment with a sleek python print or an exotic leopard to add a little extra ferocity to your wardrobe.

“It’s a smile, it’s a kiss. It’s a sweet sip of wine, it’s summertime!” (Lyrics courtesy of Country Star Kenny Chesney) And no summer is complete without the perfect anthem, one that captures moments and memories that last a lifetime.
