SUMMER COMFORT: THE MAXI SKIRT

Details: Printed Easy Knit Maxi Skirt c/o J.Jill, here |

It’s maxi skirt season! I’ve been on vacation this week and I’ve never felt more relaxed. I went on a bit of a staycation and ventured to my family’s beach house on the Long Island Sound in Connecticut. My days have been spent basking in the sun from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. reading and relaxing. I feel so refreshed and the first time I put on my makeup was yesterday and it felt so foreign to me. I can’t say that my style has been on point this week because it’s been driven by comfort and I have NO problems with that. However, I’m planning on going out to dinner tonight and the closest thing to acceptable comfort is this colorful printed maxi from J.Jill. It’s super comfortable and looks good with a variety of colors: white, black, navy, purple and even turquoise. It’s flowy and because it’s available in petite it isn’t too long like most maxis are on me. I’m hanging on to these last few days of vacation and am planning on more sun, one more book and my favorite bathing suit. What are your plans for the weekend?

VACATION MODE: SLEEP. BEACH. REPEAT.

Details: Floral drawstring shorts from TJ Maxx, similar here |

I am SO excited to go on a little stay-cation. Next week, I’m heading to my family’s beach house on the Long Island Sound in CT. I’m way overdue for a vacation and am super excited to have no plans, wear these comfy drawstring shorts every day and lay peacefully in the sand. It’s so funny because the past two years, we’ve gone on a fun tropical vacation and don’t get me wrong, that’s always a fun time, but I like the idea of really having no plans. I spend every day organizing and managing my workload, that I’m just excited to not know what I’m doing and not following agenda or a “To Do” list. Aside from shooting some new looks for the blog, I fully intend on living in my bathing suit, cover-up and these comfortable and socially acceptable floral drawstring shorts. I wish I had purchased another pair because they’re just too cute, but I guess I can swap back forth between cover-ups and oversized tees. I’m also excited to eat home cooked food that I don’t necessarily have to purchase OR cook–whoa! What does your ideal summer vacation look like?

MY SUMMER UNIFORM

DSC_6297editedDSC_6296editedDSC_6324editedDSC_6336editedDetails: American Eagle denim cut-off shorts, similar here | Cotton and silk floral shirt c/o J.Jill, here |

The first weekend of the summer is officially here and I couldn’t be more excited to lay lifeless in the sun for the entire weekend. I always feel it’s necessary to invest in a new pair of cut-off denim shorts and for the past two years I couldn’t find the right ones. It wasn’t until I took a trip to my old stomping grounds, American Eagle Outfitters, that I found THE perfect cut-offs, literally perfect. They’re comfortable, cute and they are destroyed just enough. You can be sure I will be wearing these all weekend. To me, cut-offs are like yoga pants; you can wear them all weekend long, they go with nearly everything and you look freakin’ good in them! To balance out the amount of skin I’m bearing, I decided to pair them with this light-weight floral silk and cotton blouse from J.Jill. It’s comfortable enough that you can wear it over your bathing suit on the beach without making you sweat. While I’m hoping I can just wear my bathing suit all weekend, 24/7, non-stop, I’m sure I’ll have to cover up at some point, so I’ll let this outfit be my MDW summer uniform!
