Summer Rompers

Summer Rompers



Rompers just might be my favorite trend this summer. I'm always looking for ways to stay cool and comfortable when the humidity hits so an easy one-piece outfit is a great way to go. I recently found one at Target for $25 that I love, but there are tons of affordable options if you are just looking to try out the style without wanting to spend a lot. Happy shopping!

Weekend Outfit

Monday, May 26, 2014

Top (Parker), Jeans (Paige), Sandals (Jack Rogers), Bag (Longchamp), Necklace (Edith Marie)



It's been an action packed 3 1/2 day weekend! We had a half day on Friday and took the afternoon to go out to lunch and do a bit of shopping (found an amazing maxi dress here for 50% off). Then we saw the new X-Men movie, which was pretty good and later met up with some friends for drinks. Yesterday we did a mini-pub crawl and today we are headed to my family's house for a BBQ.



Hope everyone had a great long weekend!

Beauty Splurge vs. Steal

Beauty Splurge vs. Steal





Why spend $31 when you can spend $6 for virtually the same product? 

I love love love Benefit Porefessional. I use it every day as my primer after I put on lotion and before I put on makeup. It makes my skin feel so smooth and helps makeup go on easy and stay on. However, the $31 price tag is a bit much for such a small tube. I was pumped when I recently found Maybelline Baby Skin for $6. It's almost the same primer, except it's clear, instead of nude colored like Porefessional. I highly recommend it!

Oh boy, another surprise sale! This Kate Spade sale goes until Thursday at midnight and includes lots of great clutches, earrings and spring handbags. I'm loving the items in sea foam green and bright pink. I also wear various pairs of Kate Spade stud earrings so I definitely recommend ordering a pair while they are so inexpensive.

Dress (Calvin Klein from Nordstrom Rack), Shoes (Nine West, similar) Bag (Lilly Pulitzer), Necklace (Amazon)



I wore this outfit to my friend's wedding on Saturday. The dress and shoes were super comfortable and easy to dance in. I fell in love with the light aqua blue color and found great white wedges from DSW to match. We had such a great time, congratulations again to our friends Lauren & Brent!

Show Your Stripes

Show Your Stripes






I've been obsessed with stripes lately to the point where my mom keeps having to stop me from picking out striped items off the racks when we are shopping. I wear a ton of solids normally so adding in a striped item gives my look a boost. A striped scarf, tank or clutch add contrast and are so easy to incorporate. 



What's your favorite way to wear stripes?

Weekend Outfit

Monday, May 12, 2014

Blazer (Charlie Jade from Moxie, similar), Jeans (7FAM), Purse (Rebecca Minkoff), Flats (Tory Burch)



This is one of my go-to weekend looks. I wore it out to dinner with friends and was super comfortable the whole time in a chilly restaurant. The blazer is lightweight and looks great with jeans or black pants. I found it at one of my favorite Boston boutiques, Moxie, on super sale a few months ago and just had to have it!




Happy Monday!

Weekly Wish List

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

Weekly Wish List






1. I'm officially in love with Parker tops. I found one at Second Time Around last weekend, similar to this pattern and with an open back. Can't wait to wear it with white jeans!



2. Love this lightweight sweater from Banana, would be great for chilly spring/summer nights. Comes in a few cute colors too.


3. I have this necklace from Edith Marie Jewelry but now JCrew Factory carries it. I love it and it goes with so many things.


4. Fruit infused water is the popular thing right now and this water bottle would be great for making yummy drink combos. (Marshalls also has them!) Some flavor combinations here.

Best Dressed from the Met Gala

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

I love seeing the Met Gala gowns, it's different than the Oscars or the Golden Globes. There's something more artsy, high fashion and couture about the gowns and over the years some of my all time favorite looks are from Met Galas of years past. This year it was hard to narrow it down to a my favorites but here were some of the standouts. (I can't believe Kim Kardashian made my best dressed list but I have to admit, she looked great!)

Rachel McAdams, Allison Williams, Georgia May Jagger, Cobie Smulders, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Jessica Alba, Lily Aldridge, Gisele Bundchen, Kate Mara, Blake Lively

Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift, Olivia Munn, Leighton Meester, Kim Kardashian




Who were your best and worst dressed this year? I have to say Kate Upton definitely takes the cake for worst dressed, she looked like a combination peasant, flapper and saloon waitress...yuck!
