Summer is by far my favorite season as well as one of the most stylish seasons for me.  I tend to do a lot in the summer such as weekend trips, boat trips & beach days so I have way too many summer clothes.  I wanted to share some of my favorite casual summer pieces.  All light-weight, comfy, and beautiful for the perfect summer day. Oh, and of course, my favorite summer shoes! What are your favorite summer pieces?


Out of the Blue

Sometimes I feel like the luckiest person in the world.  I am so blessed with a large family and great friends.  My mom is one of five sisters and all of us cousins are so close and make an effort to stay in touch and spend a lot of time together.  This past Sunday, my cousin and his beautiful wife took us out on their lovely boat, “Out of the Blue” to Greenport, NY.  It was an amazing day filled with lots of laughs, occasional mischievous behavior, and a whole lot of drinks from Claudio’s.

We saw the amazing “Skyfall” Yacht from the new James Bond Movie.. absolutely stunning.  And yes, that’s me hanging off the nose of the boat. 🙂

We also visited Vine and Branches, an amazing store with infused olive oils, vinegars, and other flavorful items.  You can try sample of them all.  We walked away with a melt-in-your-mouth white truffle oil.  Next stop was the Greenport Brewery and a stop at Greenport Fire which is all cigars and hot sauce aka heaven for the hubby!








Sand & Glitter: Sperry Top-sider Feature

Vacation is supposed to be relaxing but sometimes the most stressful part is packing! If you are heading to the beach or a nice resort, it is hard to find a balance of comfortable attire, as well as looking your best on vacation.

I just returned from the Virgin Islands and was so thankful that I packed comfortable shoes, especially these adorable gold-glitter Sperry Topsiders. These chic boat shoes were perfect with sundresses and dressy short, yet I was still able to hike on rocks, especially useful when hiking to see the Baths in Virgin Gorda (stunning!)
