SUMMER UNIFORM

Details: Marshalls Printed Cover-up dress, similar here, here and here | Dansko Demetra Sandal in Taupe, here |

Summertime and the living is easy–am I right? I’m so excited for beach days and minimal thought into clothing. Don’t get me wrong, I love putting together outfits and wearing “thoughtful” looks, but there’s nothing better than wearing a bathing suit and lightweight cover-up. I went to Marshalls with the sole intent of buying photo frames for my desk at work; obviously, that didn’t work out because this blue beauty caught my eye. I really love this cover-up because I fully intend on wearing it as a dress as well. It’s modest enough to wear out to dinner, but it’s loose and lightweight enough to face the summer heat on the beach. The only thing is, I would have to wear shorts and perhaps a cami underneath since it’s a little transparent. This weekend is supposed to be hot and humid so you can be sure that this is exactly what I’ll be sporting! What are your plans to beat the heat this weekend!?

P.S. I know how frustrating it is to see something from Marshalls and not be able to purchase it, but I did my best to try and find some similar options for you guys.

Since moving to Boston I’ve been searching for ways to make it feel like home. I truly don’t believe it’ll ever feel like the home I know and love, but I think I’m doing a good job of making it a home away from home. With good friends near and a new city to explore, I’ve been adjusting pretty well and I can’t imagine being anywhere else at this moment in time. When I was younger, my mom never liked us to put any posters on our wall. She worked hard at making our rooms look picture perfect, and while I often snuck a Backstreet Boys poster in from my J-14 magazine once in a while, it never lasted long. In my initial decorating plans for my new Boston room I didn’t have any ideas for my walls. Blank fresh walls add peace and makes for a very serene environment, I didn’t think I really needed much. Funny enough, my mom bought me two perfect canvas quote boards which I decided to hang on two different sections of my room. My newest addition is this custom gold foil map c/o Minted.  I decided it was only appropriate to customize my gold foil masterpiece to the map of my hometown of Chester, New Jersey. It’s just the touch of home my room needed. The process is super easy too; all you have to do is type in the address of your desired location and a google maps layout will appear, here you are able to zoom in and out to pick the design that meets your eye. Then choose a foil color you prefer and a frame (if you prefer). I love my piece of home that hangs above my bed, and it’s such a creative idea for the holidays—perfect for anyone and hard not to love!
