HANGING ON TO HEATWAVES & SLEEVELESS DAYS

Details: Stripe Pattern Jumpsuit from Amazon, here |

The grocery store has Halloween candy, and I swear I can smell pumpkin spice in the air. Listen, I’m all for the fall season; it’s one of my favorites, however, I’m currently focused on this week’s heat wave and how I can optimize my sun time this holiday weekend. We got a late start to the summer and I feel as though we’ve faced way more heatwaves than last year. I’m prepared to make the transition to fall, but I will NOT put away my summer clothes until Mother Nature makes the call. This summer, I ended up purchasing a ton of clothes from Amazon, including this PERFECT neutral stripe jumpsuit. It is so comfortable with its sexy open back and the length is perfect for my short stature. It is also so reasonably priced at $23.99, gotta love that Amazon pricing. The quality is great, but it is a little see-through so I recommend nude undergarments and perhaps a bandeau underneath.

To all my friends hanging on to summer and those already sipping on PSLs, wear what you want, but hold off on sipping on pumpkin flavored anything, okay?

THE JUMPSUIT THAT FEELS LIKE FAMILY

Details: Wearever Full-Leg Jumpsuit, c/o J.Jill, here |

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending my cousin’s wedding in Killington, Vermont. It was such a (not to sound cheesy) love-filled weekend. You know when you don’t realize you needed some quality family time until you have the best time with your family and realize it’s exactly what you needed. I left Vermont feeling so loved, and with new hilarious memories to recount with the fam. It reminded me that there are a group of equally quirky, weird, hilarious, loving, beautiful people who love me. It feels so good to have that many people in your corner, and last weekend was a huge reminder of that.

On to the outfit (I promise, it’s related). This ultra-cozy, super flattering and wear-everywhere jumpsuit is EVERYTHING. It’s so comfortable, fits like a glove (available in petite sizing), and makes me feel good about myself. Just like my family. It makes me feel confident and comfortable in my own skin. I haven’t stopped wearing it and it’s so easy to take from day to night. Wear it with a casual pair of platform sandals, or your favorite summer wedges and statement earrings–PERFECTION.

Take away from the blog post: If you’re ever feeling lost, alone or just having a bad day, remember that there are a group of equally weird, hilarious, beautiful people who love you and always will.

SALT AIR AND SEASIDE THERAPY

Details: Linen Full-Leg Seamed Crops c/o J.Jill, here | Light Essential Cardi c/o J.Jill, here

So…asking, believing and receiving beach weather didn’t really happen for me this weekend. I went to the beach, but instead of spending my days at the beach, I went outlet shopping instead…oops! I also spent some quality time with my parents and had a relaxing weekend doing everything I wanted to do…except lay out on the beach. The smell of salt air is soothing and it really is the best remedy for that post work stress. Lately, I’ve been on a comfort kick and have not stopped wearing these linen full-leg crops. They are SO comfortable and make the perfect coverup for the beach or for an evening out at your favorite seaside restaurant. I paired them with a classic tee and this adorable white gauzy cardigan. I’ve been wearing this cardigan with EVERYTHING. I love that it’s sheer, making it a little less formal than the classic solid cardigan. I am the definition of a beach bum. I can legitimately sit and lie on the beach all day from 9 to 5. I beach like it’s my job. I don’t need activities, I’ll dip in once it gets too hot, but I am perfectly content with my butt in the sand looking out into the ocean. What kind of beach person are you?
