Mirrored Glass




I bought this mirrored glass tray a few months ago in Florida and after buying it I was already back home in CT before I could really appreciate it. I still wasn't sure what I was buying it for, but knew that I had to have it and that it would be put to good use. Since arriving in Florida yesterday, I realized how in love I am with this glass tray for displaying jewelry. I'm always looking for unique ways to display jewelry that "shows off" the beautiful pieces instead of stashing it in a drawer. This mirrored glass tray is from Target and is one of my favorite finds.

IKAT

Dana-Maxx

I understand Ikat is not anything new when it comes to fashion trends, but my current obsession with Ikat keeps growing and growing. Tribal jewelry, Ikat shirts— you name it, I want it. I've even started to be drawn to Ikat home d├ęcor, from pillows to rugs, to chairs and decorative bowls. Something about the strong and bold printed designs gives off an energetic vibe, and when paired with the perfect accessories, have a bohemian downtown edge. Check out some of my favorite pieces.

Girl Of The Month


“It’s difficult to wear such high Louboutins and also freestyle rap.”




Blake Lively is my fashion "it" girl of the month. Hands down, Blake always gets it right whether on the red carpet or walking down the streether outfits are always on point. I love the risks she takes with her outfits, whether it is pairing different colors, being a little "leggy" with high slit dresses, or bright lips. Blake creates her own style and paves the path for the next seasons trends. Personal style is so important. I respect girls, like Blake, who add their own flair to complete an outfit.

All About The Maxi

Forever 21

This summer I am all about the Maxi. From dresses to skirts, the longer the better. I also like the "shorter" maxi dresses that hit right below the calf. They are perfect for the shorter-framed girl who loves the maxi trend. Maxi's can be paired with a great pair of heels for dressing up at night, or casual sandals for the daytime. In the hot summery months I find it so easy to throw on a maxi dress or skirt and be completely comfortable all day: it’s effortlessly chic and casually perfect. You can see some of my personal favorites here and here.

Market Tote




Every time I walk into Madewell I am immediately drawn to these Bamboula Market Totes. I have never picked one up, probably because I always get sidetracked by the beautiful dresses and scarves throughout the store, but I always leave the store with the market bags in the back of my head. The straw bags are made for casual summer days and pair perfectly with day dresses and sandals. I cannot wait to pick one up on my next Madewell run.

Country Inspiration

Rebecca Taylor Dress, Madewell Belt, Zara Clutch, Sam Edelman Sandals, Chan Luu and Calypso Bracelets


Last night I attended the Taylor Swift concert with my friend, Gabriella. The concert was amazing and there were even fireworks! I wanted to wear something with a country vibe that wasn’t over the top. As you know, I love wearing white dresses and I added a thick brown belt to cinch the waist. What do you think of my country inspired outfit?

Summer Beads




Calypso had the most perfect display of beautiful beaded bracelets, and tribal, Aztec necklaces that I just had to take some pictures. I love the wood blocks used to display jewelry, and wish I could own every bracelet in the store. As you can tell from my recent posts, I am obsessed with bohemian vibe pieces for summer, and my obsession continues with these summer beads.

White Out

Calypso Necklace and Bacelets, Madewell Dress, Zara Clutch, Sam Edelman Sandals


During the summer, I love wearing easy slip-on dresses and flat sandals. My favorite summer dresses are always white. I love the clean look of a white dress on a hot summer day and enjoy mixing and matching fun jewelry depending on my mood. I found this dress at Madewell, and left the store very happy. I paired it with a tribal necklace and layered beaded bracelets, which have been on my wrist all summer. What do you pair with your go to white dress?

Ocean House



I spent this past weekend in Watch Hill, Rhode Island with family and friends. The Ocean House is a magnificent place to stay, with beautiful rooms, views of the beaches, and you fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves. On Saturday night, I attended a family friends wedding and danced the night away! I opted to wear a black maxi dress and heels, which seemed to be the perfect choice for the affair. Here are some photos of the clothes, views, and beaches! How was your weekend?
