Beach Bum

Sunday, July 7, 2013

After a week spent on a beautiful beach I am back in New York reminiscing on the past week's adventures. My gracious and wonderful parents took my family on vacation to South Carolina this past week. I can’t believe it had been seven years since all 5 of us (hubbies excluded) had gone on a special vacation all together. We spent seven days staying on Folly Beach where the only brain utilization necessary was whether or not to spend time lathering on SPF, which I failed to do the first day and am now paying for it with a half peeled and still peeling chest, debating which swimsuits to wear each day, avoiding stepping on seashells and washed-up jelly fish on the beach, and deciding which tile to play in Mexican Train Dominos. I wore around 5 scraps of clothing the entire trip, them mostly consisting of bathing suits, sundresses, and my overalls. A huge thanks to my parents for spoiling all of us this past week, LOVE YOU!! And now cue the iphone photo slideshow.

In good faith, Tess

Do Your Pants Hang Low?

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

The harem pant had always intrigued me, then this week I said hello to harem. These aren’t you average bottoms…they are baggy, slouchy trousers that conjure up images in my mind of Aladdin and MC Hammer. The harem pant is one of the seasons’ trickiest trends, but with the right accessories you can make the trend look effortless. I balanced the pants silhouette with a form fitting bralette and then accessorized with a pair of platform wedges and a bit of arm candy. These divine gemstone bracelets are even more stunning in person and create quite the colorful arm party.

Pants: Zara (similar) // Bracelets: Katie Bartels (exclusive for Artissano) // Bralette: Target (similar) // Shoes: Zara // Purse: Kate Spade (vintage)

In good faith, Tess
