We’ve had another week of gorgeous weather here in New York. Lots of sun and high-70 temperatures have us thinking we’ve skipped right to summer. So what do I think of when I think summer? Bathing suits!
I may have just turned 29, but I also happen to have two babies, leaving me with no desire to show my pregnancy ravaged stomach off to the masses. So instead of looking for cute bikinis, I’m on the hunt for a one piece that doesn’t look like it was made for my grandma.

While I love the strapless options, I need a little more support than they offer–after all, I have no interest in falling out of my suit while chasing my girls around. I’m thinking a cute retro style is my best bet.
Which is your favorite?
I usually love Marc Jacobs. But as I was flipping through Vogue last night, I was stopped in my tracks (and not in a good way) by these plastic metallic cowboy boots.
I have to tell ya. I’m not feeling them. I’m not so into cowboy boots in the first place, probably because I hate horses (don’t judge me!) and they automatically make me think of horses.
Add some clear plastic to the equation and you have boggled my mind, Marc Jacobs.
First of all, these are obviously not meant to be cowboy boots in the traditional sense. They’re city girl cowboy boots. And really, what’s the point in that?
Second of all they look like they’re trying to be a cowboy boot, bootie and rain boot all in one and it just isn’t coming together for me.
I want to know what you think. Maybe you can change my mind. But I think these are preeeeetty terrible.

While I’d love to use holiday parties as an excuse to shop, who has the money to buy a new outfit for every occasion? Not this girl! Instead, choose a versatile dress that you can make fancy or casual and use it all season long.
Check out the outfits I built around this red ModCloth dress:
dress: ModCloth; earrings: Marc by Marc Jacobs; necklace: Betsey Johnson
cardigan: Zara; bag: Cole Haan; shoes: SoYouShoes; tights: Wolford
dress: ModCloth; scarf: Simply Vera Vera Wang; pants: American Eagle
cardigan: Mango; bracelet: Juicy Couture; shoes: TOMS
dress: ModCloth; earrings: Kate Spade; necklace: Coast; jacket: ModCloth
tights: Commando; clutch: Lulu Townsend; nail polish: OPI; shoes: Bakers
They couldn’t be more different, right? If you pair one of your favorite staples with different combinations of accessories, no one will be the wiser!
Do you plan on using the same dress for different parties this holiday season?
