I'm finally sifting through all my Miami photos, beginning with these images from 1 Hotels SB (cannot wait to share my favorite property with you all). For some reason, I'm obsessed with these photos and couldn't wait to get them out to you. First confession of 2016: I'm low-key very into editing photos and was a wee bit too excited regarding these. Whatever, judge all you'd like.

Ray Ban shades

This past weekend, I was up in good 'ole Rhode Island for the Brown Sailing Parent Regatta. My brother, Reid and I did quite well, I must say.

I can never not stop by Ocean Drive when I'm up in Newport. One of my favorite spots in New England- the salty air and blue waters are intoxicating. I slipped on my favorite lace slip dress- no pun intended- yesterday before heading back to Connecticut. Along with my favorite

slides

and shades, I was channeling the 90s and Sound of Music- quite the odd pairing. Yesterday reminded me on how much I love sweet New England. Everything from the ocean, Americana vibes and the beauty of nature - nothing tops it especially during the warmer months. Cheers your Monday drink to that.

Rational Shopping

All rational thinking goes out the window when it comes to online shopping. Somehow, I convince myself that it's perfectly justifiable to buy another pair of sneakers or

leather jacket

 (err... it's on sale!)

 with summer around the corner. Never less, some of these items are essential to every girl's wardrobe;

denim shorts

, perhaps?

Push aside the thought of practicality, all these items are at the top of my list. Not that I need anymore shoes, but

these sandals

fit the bill for my feet- neutral and (almost) flat. Double check. Those paired with a

striped top

and shorts is my soon-to-be uniform. 

 Rational shopping? That's right.

LBD + Short Hair


Asos Dress // Ray Ban Sunglasses // Rebecca Minkoff Sandals // Catbird Rings // Celine Bag // Michael Kors Watch // J.Crew Belt (old)

On Friday, I did something I never thought I would do- cut my hair into a lob- long bob. To be honest, I didn't mean to cut it this short. I only wanted about an inch off and my hairstylist (who was from Europe) thought I meant 4 inches. Needless to say, I like the length and it's fun to play around with my short(er) hair! (Some hair tutorials videos are in the future)

With my new hairstyle, I feel that I can experiment and try out different outfits and looks. For example, I never wear black- I own 4 black items of clothing- but I recently purchased this simple dress from Asos and I'm kinda digging it.

From the Weekend

Urban Oufitters Blazer (old) // Current/Elliott Jeans // Splendid Tee // Loeffler Randall Bag // Jack Rodger Sandals // Bauble Bar and Madewell Rings // Ray Ban Sunglasses

It's quite funny how sometimes you just don't wear certain pieces of clothes. This month, I haven't been wearing jeans a ton. Except this past weekend, it was pretty much all I wore. On Saturday, I went for a simple look that I love to wear; jeans, tee, and blazer. There are so many different styles that these items come in (edgy,chic,classic...). For me, I tend to stay in the more classic/chic range. A summery color palette was necessary, along with  some of my favorite neutral accessories. I wore a bright Splendid tee, that is insanely soft! Distressed jeans add instant edge to any look.  I topped the look with a crisp, white blazer to make the weekend look more streamlined. The blazer was such a good deal and I definitely need to get more wear out of it! See below for more easy jeans/tee/blazer picks!




Pink Pants


J.Crew Pants // Three Dots T-Shirt c/o // Pour La Victoire Heels (old, similar here and here
// Bauble Bar Bracelet // Ray-Ban Sunglasses

When I first purchased these pink pants from J.Crew, I was not sure how much I would like them. I thought they were going to be ill-fitting or look funny. Luckily, the fit was amazing. I love where they sit on my waist and how they are cropped at the ankle. Of course, I love the color too (neon obsessed)! I paired the pants with a more casual lace top which I've been wearing with everything from printed skirts to simple jeans.
