Everybody’s doing it…. The aforementioned blouse, the aforementioned skirt, and for that touch o’ green (that honestly has nothing to do with St. Patrick’s Day): a Matta scarf.

In defiance of the enduring frigid weather, a little rebellion was staged Friday night. “During winter you dream of an island, of getting undressed,” said Elisa Sednaoui of her fashion fantasy without this season’s requisite layers. So we decided to spike the heat and have a few friends over for a trunk show of Lisa Marie Fernandez’s neoprene swimwear—and a celebration of Sednaoui’s birthday.
“It’s better to get together in an intimate environment to pick out suits,” said Fernandez, explaining the allure of having your girls on hand to help you decide what you’ll be packing for the next getaway. “Everyone has been calling for bikinis before going on holiday.” Sednaoui needed one to wear while in Egypt, while Lily Kwong wanted something special for the Swiss Alps. Kwong’s destination may seem antithetical to bathing suits, but consider the spa or outdoor pool amid snowcapped mountains. Fernandez also makes a tuxedo legging that might prove perfect for more mild climates. Perennially cold, I’m thinking of wearing this neoprene pant paired with a bandeau bikini top on the beach. Perhaps Kwong called it best: “A bathing suit in the wintertime means there’s an end in sight—sunshine must be just around the corner.”

I had a cup of coffee and a two-hour conversation this morning with Tina, the hustler behind the blog Swiss Miss. One of the things we talked at length about was the culture of “yes”. She is not one to over-analyze or call strategy meetings when making a decision. She simply seeks out those things that excite her and she says“yes”.
I was talking to my little brother last week about career trajectories and how they are shifting. I think more and more the people who make changes in this world will be involved in multiple ventures, not just one. The world changes at such an incredible rate that you have to diversify your success.
So let’s all remember to show up, get excited and say yes.
