I’m heading to Spain in early August and plan on living in silky, breezy shifts like this one, which I scooped up on sale from Joie last weekend. With the overcast weather we have been experiencing, I decided to throw on a leather jacket along with coordinating black accessories to add a bit of edge to this summery number. But in a few months, when it’s sweltering out, I’ll lose the jacket, and swap out my oversized bag for a simple cross-body and my heels for espadrilles. Easy peasy! xo
Happy Monday guys! I hope you all had a great weekend. The weather was fantastic so I spent most of it outside with friends. I had people in town visiting from Seattle over the past few days, so I showed them all around the city, took them to my favorite places and generally just had a great time exploring.
Went to a interesting photography exhibit inside Milk Studios.
Walked the High Line and stopped at Terroir for drinks and food.
The views from the High Line never get old.
We rounded out the weekend by having a great brunch at The Dutch on Sunday. I went with eggs, but if you ever go, you have to try the fried chicken. It’s out of this world!
After my friends left in the afternoon, Casey and I headed to Brooklyn to celebrate a friend’s Birthday at Fornino on the water. I love Brooklyn Heights and hope to spend more time out there this summer. The views of the city are incredible!
Just a fun little Friday remix for you! I have quite a little collection of beaded skirts and love mixing them up by not only wearing them at night, but during the day too. With the right styling, you won’t feel like you are super dressy, which is key. For this remix, I kept the bones of each outfit very similar, i.e. black, shoes, same sunglasses, similar jewelry etc, as well as the color palette, which makes creating outfits much easier, especially if you are new to remixing.
These alligators blended in so well with the water. They would sneak/swim right up to the boat out of nowhere!
The guide fed them marshmallows, which they loved. ( The guide assured us that feeding them this treat is not actually bad for them – phew!)
I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the trees and Spanish moss that seemed to be everywhere. I didn’t grow up with vegetation like that so it was fascinating to me.
I spy a little turtle!
Overall it was a really great trip. It’s fair to say that I spend a lot of time down in New Orleans, but this time I was lucky enough to see Louisiana in a different light than before. I especially loved capturing different shots on the plantation and during the swamp tour since I had never really ventured outside the city limits, so I saw things with fresh eyes for sure. I also had such a fun time playing around with the different cameras and lenses, chatting with the Olympus team and meeting everyone that was a part of our group. Thanks for having me Olympus, I had a blast! xo
This past Saturday, Casey and I spent the day at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic out on Liberty State Park. It was a beautiful day (except for the 20 minutes of rain that occurred) for sitting in the sun and sipping champagne with friends.
For those of you that have been reading my blog for a while now, know that I have worked with Olay on various projects over the past year. I have become quite the fan of their products – everything from their face wipes and eye cream to their body wash and CC cream – so as part of my dedication to start taking better care of my skin a little better, I am now using their Sensitive Body Wash as part of my daily routine. I used it for the first time the other day and have noticed that instead of my body feeling dry like usual, it has stayed soft and moisturized, which is real plus in my book. I have struggled with dry and sensitive skin my whole life so it’s quite the relief to find a product that works this well. I figured since I was giving Olay’s new body wash a try, I would do a little roundup of my favorite Olay skin care product for you guys. I use all these products on a regular basis and have seen great results.
I now encourage you all to make a pledge of your own! What healthier choices do you want to make in your life?
