When I was younger, one of my favorite things about late summer was back to school shopping.  I get the shopping gene from my mom, so she would get just as excited to go shopping as I would.  I was like her Barbie doll; she would say thinks like “please try this on for me?!”  Needless to say, we still love shopping together and even though I am not going back to school, the back to school shopping tradition is still alive.  I found some new, fresh fall pieces at my last shopping trip.  I am loving this season’s chic minimalist styles.

Summertime Sadness

This summer has gone by incredibly fast and I although I love fall, I got that summertime sadness (Lana Del Ray put it perfectly!). Before I start my fall wish-lists such as visiting wineries, apple picking, and pumpkin everything (sorry, I’m just not ready yet), I have a few more summer bucket list items.  Do you have a summer wish-list left?

  • Girl’s beach trip ( and I mean ONLY girls!)
  • Take Zoey (my pup) to the beach.. my little baby has never been!
  • Make homemade popsicles with this mouth-watering recipe I found on Pinterest here.
  • Go to a Yankees game!

Oh, and the drink was an island Martini- a delicious concoction they were serving at the bar!}

Crushing on Crop Tops

The beauty of a crop top is it is not the 90’s belly shirt.. you don’t necessarily have to have a flat tummy to rock one.
Choose the right bottoms such as high-waist shorts or a flare skirt and anyone can rock a crop top. Contrary to what people may think, crop tops are actually very flattering on many body types because it bring attention to the ribcage, below the breasts and above the waists, which is usually the thinnest part of women’s (curvy or not!) bodies.
Have you rocked a crop top this summer?
