(PRESS) RESET, FOR SUMMER TO BEGIN

Details: Blue Floral Dress via Marshall’s, similar here and here | Franco Sarto Takara Espadrille Wedge Sandal via DSW, here |

The unofficial start to summer was AMAZING. It was a beautiful weekend here in the northeast, with sunshine and blue skies. I spent the weekend at my parents’ beach house in Westbrook, CT where they hosted a Memorial Day picnic for my extended family on Sunday. It’s always a great feeling to reconnect with family, share any new life updates and most of all, laugh. In my opinion, laughter can cure anything. We talked about funny work stories, random embarrassing moments and everything else you share with the ones you hold closest. To me, MDW is a reset. We come out of this cold bitter winter and rainy non-existent spring, and my default we’re feeling moody, bitter and maybe a little bit discouraged. This time to reconnect is such a pleasant and perfect reminder that family is greater than everything. It’s a reminder that you have a small army of people who are ALWAYS in your corner. There’s no greater feeling than that…other than a warm blissful breeze on a sunny day and a full weekend of blue skies. I digress.

In short, I hope you’re feeling as loved and rejuvenated as I do. Take time to reconnect with the ones you love most. Hold them close, tell them an embarrassing story, share your greatest fear, but don’t let anymore time slip. After all, it’s precious.

And as for some summer style tips: Wear what feels comfortable. This breezy blue dress is a little looser fitting than many of my dresses, but it’s super comfortable and its floral pattern is perfect for everything, from a bridal shower to an outdoor shopping outing. This summer, I plan on wearing more dresses. They make me feel good and I always resort to my favorite pair of jeans or shorts. This summer is the summer of dresses. Stay tuned for more of my favorites!

A MAXI TO REMEMBER

Details: T.J. MAXX Floral Maxi Dress, similar here |

Maxi dresses are often difficult for me to style because they’re usually way too long, however, I was fortunate to stumble upon this classic black and pale pink floral maxi. I love it because it’s super lightweight with a much shorter slip underneath. It’s perfect for summer bridal or baby showers, or even an afternoon stroll in the city. I love that its sleeves are modest, but its neckline is deep–the perfect combination of sophisticated and sexy. It’s obvious that I love T.J. MAXX and it’s not just because it’s affordable, but I’ve noticed an increase in quality (in my preferred locations) and the amount of on-trend brands and designers have become much easier to come by. I’m seriously loving it! In fact, some of my most talked about pieces this summer have come from T.J. MAXX. I’m looking forward to shopping there for my fall favorites, chunky knits here I come!

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?

Pull Out That Poncho!

Snow is on its way this weekend and that means it’s time to pull out your ponchos! OK, I know that ponchos haven’t really had the best reputation. BUT they’ve come along way; from being your grandma’s best friend to becoming a necessary fashion staple in this season’s wardrobe–the evolution of the poncho is undeniable. And let’s be serious, what’s better than a poncho? It’s like wearing a cozy blanket while looking absolutely stunning. This aztec print is a fun and unique addition to my closet and its cowl neck coupled with those big brown buttons make it cozy and luxurious all at once. I purchased it from TJ Maxx several years ago so unfortunately I couldn’t find this exact style for you guys but I included a similar one in the link above.

So this weekend while you’re cuddling up watching the snow fall grab your poncho, a pair of leggings and post up in front of  your TV with an SVU marathon and some hot chocolate. How perfect does that sound!?

Happy Friday!
