Happy Independence Day to all! It is our favorite summer holiday to celebrate the freedom of our great nation and get together with friends and family. Whether this holiday weekend takes you to a picnic on the beach, a party at the club, or watching fireworks on the river, we have asssembled great Stars and Stripes or actually Stripes and Stripes looks. We went shopping a Bloomingdales for our Yankee Doodle Dandy fashion ideas.
Coming up on our favorite weekend of sports spectating, watching the finals of Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, host to this spectacular and historical event that began in 1877.It was Maud Watson, who won the first Wimbledon Ladies' championship in 1884, who popularized the white tennis trend as it masked perspiration. Wimbledon still request players to withstand this tradition.We spotted trendy tennis stars such as Maria Sharapova, the Williams Sisters, and Petra Kvitova in their different and sometimes unique styles, yet all wearing their Wimbledon whites.
Summer sales are the greatest of the year but can be time consuming to find just the right fashion to fill out your summer wardrobe. We dove into the sale at Net-a-Porter to sort through, check sizes and selected our top picks for summer staples. You're going to want to act quickly before these great finds are gone! For more more great finds, go to Net-a-Porter.
How to look cool in the streamy summer? We had such a great response to all of our Eyelet Dresses from last week that we went shopping for more nostalgic-laced eyelet pieces for a summer in style! Pair these tops and jackets with White Jeans or Bright Jeans and a fab Statement Necklace - so fresh!
Ah eyelet - just the sounds bring back happy memories of summers long past and of little girls dressing up for the season. We were feeling a bit nostalgic as we went shopping for an updated eyelet look for summer when we fell in love with this Marc Jacobs scalloped silhouette that is so fresh and flattering.
Do not miss the Heart of the Hamptons, one of the most anticipated and celeb-studded, social events of the summer season of the East End. It is an elegant and festive event focused on raising funds for the mission of the American Heart Association. One of our favorite TV Hosts, Rosanna Scotto of Good Day New York on Fox 5 TV is chairing and we wanted to find just the right look. We took ourselves to Bergdorf Goodman to find these three smashing party dress that will keep you on the dance floor all night long. For tickets and information, please go to Heart of the Hamptons.
Wimbledon 2011 will be the 125th time that The All England Lawn Tennis Club will have hosted The Championships since the first tournament in 1877. Famed for its green grass, white clothing and the Club colors of purple and green, Wimbledon is proud of its traditions.It is one of our favorite Tournaments of the year, when thoughts turn to grass courts, all-white attire and luscious strawberries. For what to wear to this spectacular sporting event, we went shopping at Ralph Lauren who is the official outfitter for Wimbledon 2011. While some players wardrobe wildly (scroll down) we prefer to dress a bit more demurely in our Wimbledon Whites.

Dressing for an summer evening of music under the stars like the Bard Music Festival at Wethersfield? You will be in for a visual and auditory spectacle as you listen to the program of Sibelius and his World while the sun sets over the incredible Wethersfield Gardens, a 3-acre formal garden which was inspired by the garden of the Italian Renaissance and its use of water, sculpture, topiary, and terraces. We were inspired by the garden greens when we went shoping at SAKS.com for these two lovely choices.
