Film Styles: Dirty Dancing

For some reason or another, I really had the urge to watch Dirty Dancing this week. It could be that I heard a song from the early 60s that reminded me of it, or perhaps I subconsciously think of Penny every time I see the off-the-shoulder trend (and let's be honest, for as much as Baby is the star, Penny is really the style queen in this movie). Even though it's set in 1963, these outfits can easily be translated to today: embroidered peasant tops, bodysuits, cuffed denim shorts and crop tops. Whether you're summering in the Catskills or Literally Any Town, USA, you can find inspiration in Penny and Baby. Dry hump dancing optional.

Sunshine of Your Love


Clearly still being inspired by Woodstock, I decided to take my printed bell bottoms out for a spin. They might be one of the most comfortable pants I own. But my favorite part of my outfit has to be these gold temporary tattoos I bought on a whim from Sephora. I'm not a big jewelry person; I either forget to wear it or when I do, it bugs me. I figured I'd try these out since I like the idea of adding something to the overall look without them clunking around, getting in the way, and of course, not being permanent.  Granted, I know it's not really an accessory if it's being covered by my shirt, but I kind of like the idea of being the only one who knows it's there. Or we can just say I was testing the placement for bikini season ;).

Film Styles: Woodstock

While nowadays summer is known as festival season, the one festival that started it all was Woodstock. Three days of peace, love and groovy threads. Even though it happened almost 20 years before I was born, I've always had an affinity towards 60s and 70s culture, music, and style. In elementary school I wore flower-embroidered bell-bottoms and had peace signs on my bedroom walls. And while my style has evolved and I don't really stick to any one particular style, the warm weather always pulls me back to the relaxed, free-spirited styles of yesteryear.

While watching the documentary, I noticed a few different things. The first one was the majority of the guys' style was jeans and no shirt. No shoes, no shirt, no problem, right? The other was that fringe was very popular. Everyone from Roger Daltrey to Grace Slick to Jimi Hendrix sported it. Noticeably absent, though: flower crowns. But bandanas tied around the neck that seems to be the latest trend right now, and very popular at Coachella, were all over Woodstock.  Maybe we stole the trend from them, maybe they stole it from the cowboys, who's to say? Everything old becomes new again. For the women, there was a lot of loose clothing, bell sleeves, and flared jeans. All in all, it seems that comfort was key. And that, my friends, is my kind of style. Here are a few of my picks for your inner hippie this summer:

Happy Memorial Day


Ah, the warm breezes of summer are finally blowing in. That means long days, warm nights, sandy feet and good books. At the end of the next three months I'm sure I will be crying mercy for fall, but right now I'm giddy with excitement for what summer brings. It has a feeling, a persona. It's rolling down your windows and having the warm wind tousle your hair, it's the smell of chlorine and sunscreen, it's the cool first step into the water. It is a feast for the senses. Here are a few things on my summer list this year:

Enjoy your 3-day weekend and have a wonderful summer!
