 This past weekend, I was lucky enough to spend a weekend away with some friends at the Refinery29 house in Montauk. The house was amazing and the weather was pretty perfect too. We spent most of the time lounging at the house, by the pool and in hammocks, but managed to venture out to have a couple amazing meals and spend time strolling around town. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the weekend!

One of my favorite parts of the evening was when we would turn on the lights in the backyard, turn up the music and hang by the bonfire toasting s’mores.

A few weeks ago I teamed up with Refinery29 and Revlon to do a fun little videoon my “trade secrets” where I  talk about the ins and outs of my career, and my thoughts on being a fashion blogger and stylist. I love how it came out and am excited to share it with you all. (Also just found out that a little teaser video for Taxi TV will be airing soon, so for those of you that live in New York, keep your eyes peeled the next time you catch a cab!)
P.S. For those of you that don’t know, I am currently one of the experts for the Revlon All Access application, where I share my favorite tips and tricks when it comes to beauty and fashion. Check it out and download the app here!

Today’s giveway is this cheeky little necklace that was created by In God We Trust available only on Refinery29.com through December 16th. You have a chance to win it either for yourself or for a loved one (I’m thinking fun little stocking stuffer?) by simply leaving a comment below along with your name and email address. Good luck! xo
A little bit more about the necklace in the words of Refinery29: “This holiday season, we partnered with twelve of our favorite designers and artists to create custom pieces only available on R29, and only for a limited time. Brooklyn jeweler, In God We Trust created a one-of-a-kind version of their popular “Sweet Nothings” necklace, deemed “Holy Chic.” Hand-hammered and engraved, it’s a little bit sweet, and a little bit sassy, which is a little bit perfect for Refinery29 and our readers.”
* The pedant retails on Refinery29 for $45.00 and is available through December 16th. Find it here: http://reserve.refinery29.com/offer/171/in-god-we-trust

Remember last week when I wrote about running late for a breakfast meeting and I dressed up in bright blue palazzo pants and a fancy top to brighten my mood? Well, I thought it would be fun, and funny, to share with you what I actually looked like earlier that morning. It just so happened that the meeting I was at was for Refinery29, and they snapped a street style photograph of me outside as we were all leaving. I was really excited when I saw this article on their website, but sort of annoyed that I didn’t style myself up and look a little more put together. Ah, coulda, shoula, woulda.

Anyway, after I got my photo taken, I thought to myself, it would be sort of fun to show what I actually wore so I made Lindsey take a few snaps on the way home. I guess the point of this post is to show what happens in reality (i.e. me running late and throwing on whatever was lying on the floor) versus taking the time to get ready and really style myself, like I did here. I think it’s important to show that there are times it is impossible to look perfectly put together, especially when life decides to throw you a fast one. *Disclaimer: I actually don’t dislike this outfit or think it’s bad. I think it was just the overall feeling of being rushed, affected my state of mind and how I felt I presented myself. Oh, and not showering and being surrounded by incredibly stylish people at 9am in the morning. Ha.
