A Stylish Summer Night Out
1. Pick a must-have beauty product for summer evening excursions.
I’m very into Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Prism Cream right now. It’s a super luxurious option for both luminosity and hydration. The formula is actually infused with 24-karat gold, which, in tandem with the product’s optical diffusers, adds the perfect summer glow effect. I like to apply this on my cheekbones; it looks beautiful alone, but also under or over your makeup.
2. When it comes to summer nights, what are your favorite activities?
I love summer evenings, especially ones with friends! I love going out for dinner at a nice restaurant, sitting outside and having a couple glasses of wine, or having fun at a rooftop bar.
And, there’s always something to look forward to when you’re out and about — you really miss that feeling of a warm summer night, similar to what I used to experience in Panama. Going into a fun hot spot with some friends and then walking out hours later and feeling the beautiful weather … it leads to longer nights and more fun because no one wants to go home!
I also mix in a few low-key summer nights from time to time. Some more relaxed activities I really enjoy are walking through the Boston Common with my husband, and watching the sunset at the Esplanade.
3. What’s your style philosophy for summer evening fashion? Tell us your top three tried-and-true wardrobe staples for summer nights.
I always make sure to layer. Nights can cool down fast, and you always want to be prepared. Also, I make sure to wear heels, but comfortable ones in case my friends and I decided to suddenly change plans and go bar-hopping – the best summer nights are spontaneous.
My three wardrobe staples for summer nights would have to be my faux-leather jacket, my Chanel bag, and my YSL heels. My jacket made the cut because it keeps me warm and I can easily dress it up or down depending on where the night takes me. My Chanel bag is a total classic, and it goes with absolutely everything in my closet. My YSL ankle strap heels round out my list because they’re the most comfortable pair of heels I own, and at the same time, they elevate any outfit with an element of chic.
