Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

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!

What are your picks this year? Happy Shopping!

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!

Tropical

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!

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.

For dinner I changed into a new navy maxi dress and I just love it! The perfect dress for a summer night, and even 4th of July!

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

cn7941961

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

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!

Striped Skirt

I was so excited when I received this striped linen skirt, it is so fun and versatile. Wear it with a basic tank and wedges, or dress it up with a white button down and heels. I can’t wait to wear it in Paris when we go for vacation there in August – it feels very Parisian to me : ) Not only is it on sale now, but it is also an additional 40% off. I recommend sizing down, I took a 2 in this but am normally a 4 at Loft.

Almost to the weekend now, thanks so much for stopping by!
