Summer dresses and footwear from BCBGMAXAZRIA

I can’t wait for the summer weather to arrive here in Boston – it has been chilly these last few days and I am glaring at fashion magazines wishing to wear some of the fun clothes. On my list of items to buy this summer are some fun shoes and a tank or two!

Our friends at Bluefly have the best clothes. Check out one of my favorite designers bcbg on Bluefly. If you love flirty, feminine dresses and stylish separates this is the collection for you (and oh the shoes!). I have a black BCBG skirt that I bought years ago that I still wear to every occassion and everyone complements me on it!

Here are some of my favorites I spotted on Bluefly.  This lime neon burnout cotton racer back tank combines two trends in one – bright and a sheer, almost lace looking tank – love the sheerness of it.

I remember years ago I was invited to a white party – where you wear all white (I did have a hard time deciding what to wear ) This white striped chiffon one-shoulder gown would have been just right!  So pretty.

For shoes I am craving a flat and a wood heel. Love the bcbg shoes! These beach leather ‘Agreice’ buckle platform sandals are the perfect summer accessories for cute shorts and dresses. The pewter leather ‘Betsy’ cluster flats would look great with jeans and some silver jewelry!

Fitness Shoes for tweens?

This must be a new trend I am not aware of – fitness shoes for girls.  While I have talked about my FitFlop sandals on a number of occassions I was surprised to see they came out with fit flops for kids. I personally think fit flips sandals are very comfortable. While at first I thought that is so cute, my next thought was, do my girls really need a sandal to tone their legs?  The fit flops web site says their shoes are “footwear with a gym built-in. FitFlop. Get a workout while you walk” Do kids really need a workout?

Their web site does say “FitFlop footwear protects kids feet without limiting movement, and let growing feet stretch and flex, with more foot-to-midsole contact than stiff and structured-soled shoes”  But the top part of this section still says get a workout while you walk.

Then as my girls were watching TV a commercial came on for Shape-ups for girls. Really?  What message is this sending them?Just some thoughts…..What do you think?
