Kept it simple and laid back for you guys today, with an easy breezy tank, lightweight jeans and suede booties. Okay, the suede booties might be a bit heavy for summer, but I just couldn’t stare at them in my closet any longer and not wear them. I recently bought them majorly on sale at Scoop, (who right now, is actually having a HUGE SALE) and decided I had to break them out a little early. Can you blame me? I love summer but is anyone else ready for fall?
When I first saw this dress I didn’t think it would work on my shape at all, but after slipping it on, I sort of loved how 60′s and mod it looked and felt. It’s technically a dress (although I opted to put shorts on underneath) but can act as a swimsuit coverup as well, which is what I plan on using it for when I go to Malaga, Spain next month.
New York is in the throws of summer, which means every day is a scorcher. It can be hard to stay cool in 90 degree weather, so when shorts and a t-shirt starts feeling kind of boring, I switch it up by wearing colorful, breezy rompers.
Happy Fourth of July, everyone! What do you guys have planned? It is supposed to rain all day so I might try and see The Fault in Our Stars this afternoon but then am meeting up with friends on a rooftop in Brooklyn to watch the fireworks. Fingers crossed the rain stops by the evening. Regardless of the weather, I hope you all have a great day celebrating America’s Birthday! xo

Happy almost weekend, everyone! Yesterday was my Birthday so I took the day off and spent time with Casey. I pampered myself (or he did actually) with a mani pedi and then laid by the pool and read for the rest of the afternoon. It was wonderful. Then later in the night, we got dressed up and met friends for dinner at Cafe Mezcal and drinks at Nurse Bettie. Over all, it was a great Birthday! Lucky for me, it will continue on throughout the rest of the week and weekend, with apparently a few surprises planned, so stay tuned. Hope you have a fantastic rest of your day! xo

A couple weeks ago I got to partake in a really fun shoot with the brand, Donna Morgan, which is a great line of dresses that all retail under $200. The pieces are extremely versatile and easy to style for all sorts of occasions. So to help demonstrate this, I picked two dresses and styled them a bunch of different ways showing how to take a look from day to night just by simply swapping out a few simple items and accessories. One of the pieces I styled was this colorful maxi, which is perfect for the end of summer. What’s great about this piece is, although it’s super cute on it’s own with it’s playful pattern and beaded neckline, I wanted to change it up a bit for day time looks, so I opted for more casual accessories such as neutral tones to keep relaxed unfussy. For my evening looks I chose white pieces to layer with, which I think adds an immediate elevated feel and instantly takes a simple maxi to the next level.
