Summer Faves

Spring came very slowly in New England and now that it is finally starting warm up, I am so excited for summer. I have a lot on my summer bucket list to pack into just a few months. What’s on your summer bucket list?
I started crossing my summer faves off this weekend..


  • Dunkin Donuts iced coffee
  • crop tops
  • neon pink
  • bathing suit shopping
  • homemade Limoncello
  • mojitos
  • mint shoes
  • patio dining

Nasty Gal Hand Harness

Sometimes, camera photos will have to do because I really wanted to share this gorgeous accessory with all of you!  My husband gifted this amazing hand harness and I am absolutely in love with it.  He found it on Nasty Gal and it’s the perfect unique accessory that gets tons of attention.  I wore it with my new Banana Republic cargo jacket that I scored at the outlets on clearance. At first, since it’s not a piece I normally wear, I thought it would be comfortable, but since I had it fitted, it was very wear-able.

Also, if you are an eyebrow-obsessed person like me, you may notice I am trying to grow in my eyebrows– yes I have Cara Delevinge eyebrow-envy (don’t we all?)  I am using a Lauren Mercier brow pencil that helps me through that awkward growing stage.

Have you tried a hand-harness yet?




Daisy Does It

On the hanger, this daisy maxi looked frumpy, however I am so excited that after deciding to buy it, it’s such a versatile skirt. The high slits help add some edge to the skirt.  Over the weekend, I scored some amazing deals at the local outlets at Banana Republic, PacSun, and J. Crew. I tried on some things that I normally wouldn’t and was happy with the outcome.

What’s your most recent, out-of-your-comfort-zone purchase?

Ballerina Bun & Flannel

My idea of comfortable is a soft flannel shirt and some nice, worn-in jeans! Beautiful spring days call for taking Zoey everywhere I go, especially to the dog park.
