I hope you're having a fantastic summer. Summertime for me includes some flourescent colors and preppy accents for weekends away on the Connecticut shoreline.
In my photos above photographed by Francisco Graciano from my friends' Upper East Side gorgeous penthouse veranda, I styled my Lilly Pulitzer flourescent pink dress with gold accents with a gold espadrille wedge Kate Spade shoe. I also wore a Kate Spade flourescent green bag to make it a green and pink (Lilly's traditional preppy color combination) look that wasn't too on the nose. The Kate Spade bag was an outlet score, too! My gold earrings picked up more gold accents, and my hair was styled straight to add to the put togetherness of the look. The neckline of the dress is very 1960s, so I got my hair done with a slight hair flip on the bottom. Later that evening after dinner with friends Francisco and I went to the Joyce Theater in Chelsea to catch Rosie Herrera's dance company performing. For more of my fun nights out be sure to follow my fashion blog Instagram including the new "story" feature on @carolinasantosread.
Not only are flourescents fun and happy summer colors, but they pick up a tan beautifully and accentuate it.
Enjoy your fun in the sun!
