What I Wore: The Boys of Summer

There are a few songs I’m helplessly addicted to, and one of them is Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer.”  So much so, that I was OBSESSED with buying Ray Ban Wayfarers to emulate the lyrics, “You’ve got your hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby.”  As a gal obsessed with the 80s, these iconic sunglasses are a necessary.

Twisted rationale? Possibly. Does it work for me? Absolutely.


The fellas parents were in town this past weekend, so I put on my new Trashy Diva Trixie Play Suit for Sunday brunch at Coquette.  It was future Father-in-Laws birthday, and we wanted the small chance to treat them to something delicious (because they’d spoiled us so with so much good food all weekend).

Needless to say, everyone had a great brunch… from the strong cocktails, to sharing a wonderful, warm donut, and the amazing food all around.  OMG– one of the desserts was an Olive Oil chiffon with English Pea ice cream and lemon curd… we were all so curious about the combination, but it was amazing.  Seriously– if you’re in NOLA, visit Coquette.  We’ve been twice now, and every time I go the food is so amazing and delicious.

I hoped to break in these newish Miz Mooz wedges, thinking a short walk to the restaurant and back would be perfect… but wouldn’t you know, I swapped them out right before leaving for these B. Makowsky lace-up flats. I was a lot more comfortable (and to be honest, I’m amazed at the wear they’ve gotten over the last 2+ years… clearly a good wardrobe investment)!


What I Wore:
Trashy Diva Trixie Play Suit (in Tribal)
Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal earrings (purchased on Gilt; similar)
Ray Ban Wayfarers
Michael Kors Runway Watch / Miz Mooz Petra sandals

I hope everyone had a safe Memorial Day weekend!

Love the print of the dress! That song is such a classic and definitely gets me in the mood for summer :)

Awww! This is such a gorgeous outfit (the pretty printed frock! The adorable SANDALS!), and now I *totally* have ‘Boys Of Summer’ stuck in my head.

You look gorgeous. And that is one of my all-time favorite 80s songs. Definitely my favorite to listen to in the summer. It’s just so perfect.

A pair of comfortable shoes are always very much appreciated :)
love the vivid colors of your dress …. I knew I wasn’t the only ‘fan’ of ‘The Boys Of Summer’. I love it and have it on iPod, iPad, iphone … playing on the car all the time. I f I get tire of it I’ll stop listening to it for a week at the most and then back to it.
Have a happy weekend.

That is an ADORABLE dress and I am obsessed with that song too.

And it’s funny that you mention the 80’s because I just realized how happy 80’s music makes me feel. And yes Wayfarers are very necessary!

Adorable!!! XO!!

Love the dress! I always find myself switching out heels for flats (on the rare occasion I attempt to wear heels).

Beautifull dress you’ve got there, really suits you. x
