This is such a “me” outfit, especially on the days when I’m running errands all around the city but also need to stay comfortable. I also love how easy it is to remix a simple striped dress just by switching up the accessories. I always say that your shoes, bag and jewelry can totally change your overall look in minutes, which is ideal when you’re always on the go!

Link Love - Birthday weekend

I spent the weekend celebrating my Birthday at the The Crow’s Nest in Montauk, and it was such a magical time. Spending time outdoors in Utah was incredible and definitely a much needed escape from the city, but there is something about being by the ocean that resonates with me so deeply. I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m a Cancer, which is a very watery sign!

I hope you all had a great weekend and now for some links I am excited to share with you guys!

Great article on anxiety.

My new favorite ultra hydrating face cream, which is awesome if you have dry skin like me!

The perfect pair of summer sandals.

After reading this article on Facebook, I discovered my new favorite Instagram account.

This $2 eyeliner has been a game changer.

My love of hats continues. Thinking about adding this one to my summer collection.

Three movies that I highly recommend checking out: The Beguiled, The Big Sick and Good Fortune.

I just bought a box of individual coconut oil packets from Trader Joe’s! Genius for traveling.

And now some fun links courtesy of my lovely intern, Keaton.

I’m always looking for new ways to up my sneaker game. These are currently on my list.

Definitely an interesting read.

My favorite free thing to do in NYC.

If you are an animal lover, then you have to start following this Instagram account. It’s my favorite.

This is the third Link Love post I’ve done and I was curious if you guys liked it, and want me to keep it going? I know I always love when other people share their favorite links so let me know your thoughts!

I used to love this combo together and somewhere along the way, stopped doing a ton of pattern mixing. But the truth is, I really like doing it and I really like the way these three prints look paired together. I also haven’t worn statement jewelry in a while so it felt fun to revisit this oversized necklace, which is still one of my favorites and was about $15 from Forever 21!

Denim shorts can be tricky. They are either waaaay too short, can have a saggy butt if they are too big or be an awkward length that isn’t flattering…read more >

I flew back to New York on a red eye this past Monday morning after being in Utah and Seattle for two weeks, and have definitely been a little jet lagged the past few days. I meant for this post to go up when I got back but had a few things come up, which is why it’s a late, so I’m sorry about that. But, lucky for you guys, that means you get two new posts today!

Anyway, hopefully you guys are feeling more rested than I am (hello three hour time difference), but if are feeling slow this morning, here are some fun links from around the web to ease you into your day. I hope you all had a great weekend and here’s to having a wonderful week!

Two weeks worth of posts:

I picked up this book at the beginning of our trip and could hardly put it down!

I finally got to experience what it was like to hike in a river.

Obsessed with these oversized sunnies.

How cute are these gray summer sandals?

A baby giraffe joins Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo.

One of my Mom’s favorite dog Instagram accounts.

Just saw this touching movie and highly recommend it.


Now some fun links courtesy of my lovely intern, Keaton.

I’m obsessed with these lamps (here’s an affordable version as well).

I swear by this face cream, I would never use anything else.

This is my favorite sunglass brand.

I’m guilty of wearing boots and booties year round – I love these.

The only eye liner I use.

After reading this I’m definitely fluent in fashion week. ;)

If you missed it, here’s last week’s Link Love!




Buttondown with denim shorts and Kenneth Cole denim heeled sandals 1

I know I’ve been wearing these shorts a lot on here lately but I’m telling you, when I find a good pair of denim cutoffs, which can be hard to find, I essentially live in them during the summer. They go with everything and can be dressed up and down simply by swapping out the shoes you are wearing. Case in point, these heeled sandals immediately elevate the look, whereas if I had chosen to wear Birkenstocks instead, the whole aesthetic would feel totally different.

Side note, if you like Birkenstocks and are curious how to style them, check out Wednesday’s post and this video for style ideas!

As we head into June and the weather continues to get warmer, my daily uniform becomes a pair of denim cutoffs, a loose t-shirt and my trusty Birkenstocks. I now have four pairs of them and really want to snag a navy blue pair next! If you guys are curious on other ways to style them, check out my video below which shows how I wear them!

P.S. Check out my Birkenstock video below! It’s from last year but do guys think I should make another one for the summer months? Let me know in the comments below!


For the past week, my family and I have been camping and hiking in and around Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park, and it’s so amazing here! To be able to disconnect, be fully present with my family, soak up my surroundings and take a bit of a digital cleanse seems to be exactly what I’ve needed. Unfortunately it tends to be a rarity these days but it’s so important to take time off from the internet, our computer and phones, don’t you think?

In a few days we are going to road trip back to Seattle so I can see my Grandmother, who is 101 (!) and a few other loved ones, but for now, here are some fun links from around the web that I wanted to share with you guys. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week! xo

I’ve been reading this book and can’t put it down. Thanks for lending it to me, Grace!

Recent Forever purchases include these nude pom pom ankle strap heels, this nude slip dress and these faux suede blush slides. (I’m sensing a color theme here…)

My collaboration with Cooper & Ella + Dream Downtown was covered in WWD!

Banana Republic finds include this wide brim, brown straw hat, (which also happens to be one of Olivia Palermo’s picks), another pair of suede slides this time in a rich “whiskey” brown and this crisp white off the shoulder shirt.

The Real Problem With Being Child-Free and Unmarried In Your Mid-30s


Next up, my lovely intern, Keaton.

Here are some links she’s been loving from around the web!

I’m really into this jacket because it’s cool and lightweight, and fits my compulsive need to bring a coat everywhere even if its 100 degrees outside!

Since I’m obsessed with denim on denim, these overalls are my best friend.

Now that it’s summer I’m looking forward to finally finishing this book.

Perfect for small spaces and adding some extra seating to a room.

The funniest comedy special I’ve ever seen.

Has my mug search finally come to an end?

Really digging these workout leggings.

Such a cool article.

Have a great week friends and don’t forget to stop by here this week because there will be some fun posts up about my summer uniform, and how to dress up denim shorts!  xo
