One Shoulder Top

Now that off-the-shoulder is about as mainstream as you can get and you guys KNOW MY FEELINGS on those dreaded shoulder cut-out tops, the fashion powers that be have decided to switch it up again and bring us the next “it” top of the season: the one shoulder top.

I’ve seen the style slowly creep in over the course of the summer and I have a hunch that there will be a lot more of it come this fall. One sleeve is better than no sleeves when it’s cold outside — am I right, or am I right?!

Wear THIS On Your Next Girls Night Out

white monochromatic summer style

One of my favorite style tricks for looking put together in a flash is to go head-to-toe monochromatic.

Whether white, black or really, any other color in between, monochromatic fashion takes some of the pressure out of putting together a fun and cohesive outfit, when you just can’t… Which unfortunately, happens to the best of us!

Anything But Ordinary

The Ordinary Skincare Beauty Asos Summer Style

Good Morning! I’m taking a quick break from unpacking to get back into my regular posting schedule. Vacation was so awesome, but there’s just something about the comforts of home — especially once the annoying unpacking is done!

As I was putting away some toiletries this morning I realized that I haven’t given you guys a summer beauty update yet this season. I try to switch up my routine 3-4 times a year to account for changes in weather and lifestyle. Coincidentally, most skincare products only last me 3 months at most, so the timing of this beauty switcheroo is also ideal for replacing or replenishing empties! This season, I finally had an opportunity to try out a newer brand called THE ORDINARY.

The Most Unexpected Beach Bag

fishnet shopping toteI’m currently wrapping up my time in Newport, RI and as I re-packed my suitcase this morning I did a quick assessment.

Out of my little carry-on, I created enough outfits for 4 days + 3 nights of assorted activities ranging from poolside lounging, to boating, mansion touring and fine dining. Overall, I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with myself.

However, I have found one area that could use some improvement: my beach/pool tote.

This post is coming to you direct from Newport, RI!

I’ve been having quite the whirlwind getaway! If you haven’t been to Newport, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s a beautiful harbor front town with delicious food, scenic views, great New England history and beautiful accommodations. I’ll be doing a full getaway guide in a few days, but in the meantime let’s get back to style!

Summer Brunch

I think patio dining/drinking might be one of my top 3 things about summer.

Now that I have children, my time al fresco is definitely much more limited than it used to be back in the day. Kids and long, boozy brunches just don’t seem to mix very well. So when I have an opportunity to head downtown and sit outside sans the menagerie, I’m all over it!

You know what else I’m all over?! Gingham… and distressed denim (in no particular order).

Friday Link Love, Vol. 1.94

Friday Link LoveGood Morning! I’m sending you a big time TGIF from New York!

Was it just me or was this the strangest week ever? After the Tuesday, July 4th holiday I completely lost track of what day of the week it was. This Wednesday was perhaps the most Monday-est Wednesday ever. Don’t worry though, I still managed to “get through it” — the perks of being on vacation! I spent my Wednesday wandering around Tribeca and my old neighborhood in the far West Village, ate lunch at a favorite — BUBBY’S, finally got to see “Hamilton – The Musical” and wrapped up the night with dinner and cocktails at LITTLE PARK. I was also in bed by 10:30pm and got to sleep in the next morning before a SOUL CYCLE class. Not too shabby, right?

I even managed to squeeze in some good internet research to bring you this week’s edition of Friday Link Love!

So let’s get to it…

Summer Light + Bright

For a few weeks now, I’ve been drawn to the white dress.

Remember THIS POST?

There is no better time than smack in the middle of summer, to lighten up a bit — both in spirit, as well as in style! While I’ve always been a little wary of white — especially since having kids — this BARDOT MIDI DRESS had an effortless feel about it. The easy cut and draping fabric combination makes this dress an instant summer white dress winner. Most importantly, it makes me feel really pretty.
