UTTERLY FEMININE: Paint Nail Bar popup

We’re all looking for breezier clothing options this time of year. It’s not even officially summer yet, but I’m yearning for flowing things in lighter colors. A brighter palette goes for nail polish, too. Enter the Paint Nail Bar popup at Zaa Dress Up Studio. Indulge in a hand massage and polish change and let the staff help you get your summer look sewn up with smart, sleeveless dresses and blouses suitable for the office. Own the weekend in gauzy pants and a brightly colored lace top. Hit up a market or festival in a stylish romper or maxi dress. The event includes bubbly and light bites. Free. 4-6 p.m. Friday. 578 First Ave. N, St. Petersburg. zaastyle.com.

SUMMER STYLE: Atlas Body and Home

It’s time for guys to get summer wardrobes together, too. And Sunday is Father’s Day. Options for men can feel stale, but not at Atlas Body and Home. The store has fun, colorful, even breezy apparel, including modern tropical shirts and matching shirt and shorts sets, a trend due for a comeback. Find swim trunks or swim briefs, if you dare. The store also carries kaftans, which are not commonly worn by men in American culture, but that needs to change. The flowing comfort would be a welcome respite in the heat. Check out Atlas tonight during the Pride kickoff party benefiting Metro Inclusive Health. There’s a cash bar and a raffle for tickets to the Glam Stands at the St. Pete Pride Parade or a pair of tickets to the Rainbros Pride Party at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. Free. 5-8 p.m. 919 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. (727) 873-3500.
