Happy thoughts

Perhaps it's just wishful thinking seeing as this concrete jungle that I live in is so NOT pool party friendly but, I plan on attending lots of them this summer. (Haven't quite worked out the details of that just yet, don't judge me.)

I've been to a great many in this life and hopefully my pool party drought will end soon! Yes, we have fab day time roof top parties here, but it's not the same. Anyhoo, here's what I'd wear...

First thing, a face full of make up at an outside party on a blazing hot day is just yuck. I'd opt for a bright peachy palette perfect for day. A little something on your eyes and cheeks, boom. done. A fresh manicure is obviously a must and when it's really hot, I hate wearing a bunch of jewelry so a little something easy to wear on my wrist would be ideal. 

It's funny you always see people talking about comfort vs. style and I'm a true believer that you can have both. A chic kaftan in a fabulous print with a great structured bag so that it doesn't look overly beachy and cute flat sandals are perfect.
