Summer Solstice

This year is going by a little too quick for my taste. I'm really not ready for it to be June already, although with June comes nicer weather, and one of my absolute favorite parties of the year: The Summer Solstice Party at the Cleveland Museum of Art on June 25th! N and I attended last year, and for some unknown reason, I have ZERO pictures!!!

You will just have to trust me when I say that this party is ridiculously fun, and is THE BEST PEOPLE-WATCHING in Cleveland. Seriously.

The Summer Solstice Party attracts a very diverse crowd, and with it, come some very diverse fashions. Last year, there were some incredible outfits, ranging from casual, to very formal, although my favorites were the "fashion forward" pieces, especially the head-wear (you know I LUUUUURRRRVVEEEE a great hat!!). I wore a white embellished tank with a black bubble skirt, black braided belt and yellow wedge heels; this year I think I'm going the maxi dress route. There's great bands, a fireworks show, and of course, you can tour the museums as well!!

Here's what I recommend:
1. You should really really really REALLY consider going. Last year N and I went at 10:00 pm, when the admission price dropped to $20.  We had so much fun that this year we're going to the 7:30 admission.
2. Ladies, it is almost inevitable that you will end up on the lawn. As you well know, lawn = no pointy heels, so definitely consider wearing flats or wedges
3. Wear something comfortable, but don't be afraid to try a new look that may not necessarily be "you". You never know how great you will end up looking, and this is an incredible event to test it out!!
4. Unlike me last year, take a camera and make sure you take loads of pictures!!!!!

Hope I see you there!!!!
