Warby Parker Beacon Collection

Warby Parker has asked me to let you know about an exciting new collection they have rolled out, available beginning today! I’m not being compensated in anyway for this post, I wanted to do it because my husband is such a Warby Parker fan! I think he has about 5 pairs of sunglasses and regular glasses from them now.

Not only are the glasses affordable, many less than $100 including prescription lenses with anti-reflective coating, the quality and style are fantastic. And to top it all off, for every pair of glasses that are purchased, a pair is donated to someone in need. I am in the market for some new glasses myself, and plan to head over to their Soho store to pick up a pair soon. For those who aren’t by a store, Warby Parker will send you 5 pairs of frames at a time to try on at home, then you can pick what you like and order with your prescription. So easy!

Their new Beacon Collection is “inspired by impromptu, can’t-duplicate-them all-nighters, when having no plans brings endless possibilities” and are designed “to make a similarly fine companion to late night dates, rooftop sunrises, and everything in between.”

Hope you will pop over and check out their stylish new collection!



Yellow and Dots

Almost to the weekend, yay!

Put  this outfit together to run errands and meet Michael for dinner. I used to be scared to pair black with yellow to avoid the “bumble bee” effect, but I really like the combo now when done right – I think adding a print helps make it work.

Don’t forget the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to all today – check out my picks!

Orange Crush

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! We had a fabulous time in Nantucket – what a beautiful place!

I was lucky enough to have the fun continue this week with my friend Kelli visiting from Florida! We went to the Michael Buble concert at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night – so amazing – and then headed out yesterday to do a little shopping and hit a few happy hours.

I wore my new orange hi-lo dress, just added a belt and wedges – Kelli and I were a colorful bunch : )

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

This past Thursday we hosted my first NYC birthday party which was a ton of fun. We had it on an outdoor patio in midtown Manhattan and a bunch of my awesome sorority sisters and friends showed up. I can’t believe I turn 32 this Wednesday!

I wore this dress that my bloggy friend, Karissa, recommended, and I just love it! Thanks Karissa! I plan on wearing it to a friend’s San Diego wedding in July as well. The tropical print is so pretty and I think it looks better in person than it does on the model. This boutique has a ton of cute stuff, check them out! Try the code SUMMER30 for 30% off your purchase.

I’m headed to Nantucket with some friends tomorrow for the 4th of July weekend. Hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday and I will see you next week!

Dress – Fab’rik




Chambray & Brights

Wore this out to run errands and do a little work. A drapey chambray shirt is a great basic year round! I threw on this bright patterned scarf to jazz everything up a bit.

Happy Friday!

Weekend at the Wineries

This past weekend we escaped about an hour and a half outside the city to visit some wineries in the Hudson River Valley area. We hopped in the car with my in-laws and spent the day tasting at a few different places and then enjoyed an absolutely incredible summer solstice dinner at the Millbrook Winery. It involved lots of lobster, butter, and a table right in the vineyards ,with beautiful weather to top it all off!

For the day of tasting I wore white jeans with a striped top and added a coral necklace for a pop of color. The quality on this shirt is great, the material is very sturdy. Not online anymore but might be in stores.

Jeans – American Eagle, Top – Old Navy (similar)

Affordable Summer Dresses

There’s nothing like an easy dress to throw on when it’s hot outside. No one needs a tight waistband when they are sweating in the subway station, or in the car before the AC kicks in, right? Here are some great choices that won’t break the bank, so you can get more than one of course : )

Loft is having 40% off right now, so don’t wait

Graphic Print Crossover Dress – I took an XS in this


Striped Pleated Skirt Dress – I ended up with a 4 Petite in this, and I’m 5’5. You might want to try a Petite unless you are tall or have a long torso.

Cutout Back Maxi Dress – Love that you can wear a regular bra with this while showing just a little skin. I took a small.

Old Navy is also having a great sale on all of their dresses right now

Orange is having a moment right now and this dress is so cute! It actually has a decent amount of shape if you have curves, but I added a skinny belt to add some waist definition. I took a small.


I didn’t get to try this one on but I love the floral print on this sundress.


A little white dress is a summer must have.


And I think we need to throw a few rompers in because they are just as cute and easy as a dress

Love this one in chambray, but size down per reviews


This cotton one is easy to throw on with wedges or even as a swim cover-up. I took a small.


Happy Friday, have a great weekend!





Camo & Pink

Hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend. We spent ours enjoying a beautiful day by the pool at my in-laws home, and I also got to have my cousin, her boyfriend, and their adorable baby  in town to stay with us for a bit.

I wore this outfit to run errands last week – easy to run around in. I love how the pastel tank adds a little femininity to the camo. And you can get these pieces today for 40% off!

Navy, White, & Pink

Headed out to the financial district to meet a friend for drinks in this outfit last week, I’m loving all the ways to remix this white vest!

I’m working in Newark this week, helping my boss out with some stuff. Kind of nice to have some co-workers around for once, but I’m ready to get back to the city tomorrow for sure!

Happy Hump Day!
