Good morning and happy Friday!! A few days ago I had the honor of attending the SetSailSummer blogger event held by Sail To Sable and Palm Beach Lately at the Wee Burn Beach Club in Connecticut. It was a celebration of all things summer where I got to meet some truly talented and lovely people. It was so much fun getting to know everyone and especially meeting the team behind each brand. The evening was quite a magical one with soft music playing in the background, the golden sun slowing setting, the chatter of new and old friends meeting, the rosè flowing, and the cutest summer themed hors d'œuvres. No detail was overlooked!

All of the gals were decked out in their best Sail To Sable outfits and most wearing their new Jack Rogers USA sandals. Monogram Mary was also on hand to monogram anything you wanted from sweaters, to clutches and tote bags. Sail To Sable was kind enough to ask which pieces from their summer collection we would like to wear for the celebration. I chose this pretty clip dot dress with fun tassels and ruffle hem. It was perfect for

The view at the Wee Burn Beach Club was absolutely breathtaking and the perfect backdrop for a summer soirée. The sunset was dreamy and we were all commenting on how gorgeous it was. Our lodging for the event was at the Roger Sherman Inn, which had the most amazing porch dining area and quintessential New England charm. Cheers to old and new friendships and a summer night to remember! 

Thank you so much again to Sail To Sable, Palm Beach Lately, Jack Rogers USA, and Monogram Mary

Red Sailor Dress || Ava’s Blue Sailor Dress c/o || Stripped Sandals || Red Scallop Bag || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Anchor  & Pearl Bracelet || 

Good morning, friends! This was by far my favorite outfits of ours from our trip. It was an absolutely breathtaking evening too. The sun was casting its golden glow upon the JFK memorial and further down onto the sands and glistening water. This is by far my favorite spot on the Cape. It was where I initially fell head over heels in love with the Cape. This view will always be my favorite view. It’s one of the best spots to experience the golden hour too. 

Ava was so excited to be a sailor for the day. She kept trying the dress on even before we left for our vacation. I couldn’t resist a mommy and me matching moment, pulling out my red sailor dress with a vintage flair. The stripes, buttons, pleats, and naval collar all make my heart swoon. Ava’s dress has a decorative bow, stripes, a naval collar and buttons to compete her nautical ensemble. These would also make wonderful dresses for the 4th of July as well! 

Today also marks my brother’s birthday. Wishing you a very happy one, Mike!

Blue Floral Dress (Old, Similar) || Raffia Clutch || Cream Wedge Espadrilles || Jackie Kennedy Pearl Earrings || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || KJP Pearl Bracelet || 

Good morning and happy Tuesday! This blue floral dress is an old favorite of mine from years ago. I got it from ModCloth in maybe 2012 or 2013 and it’s held up quite well since then. Blue and white has always been a standard for my summer uniform, especially for all of my nautical wear. On the other hand, a blue and a white floral adds a bit of classic femininity and reminds me of all of the gorgeous summer blooms like hydrangeas and roses.

I saved this dress for a special occasion where we got our annual photo in front of the Nausset Lighthouse in Eastham. It’s our favorite lighthouse and quite an iconic one. It’s the most photographed lighthouse on Cape Cod and the one you see on the Cape Cod Chips bag.

Before calling it a night, we ate at Pizza Barbone to try some of their pesto pizza. I was skeptical, but wow was I blown away! It was one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. The serving size is a bit small, but it’s well worth it to try at least once.

Good morning, friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. We had some gorgeous weather making it ideal to spend as much time as we could outside. Everything from gardening and sprucing up the yard, to lake trips, eating al fresco, star gazing and catching lightening bugs in the evenings made this weekend a memorable one.

How cute are these matching eyelash and lip print tops?! Ava calls them the kissy face tops lol. They’re the ultimate for a causal cool style. I love that they’re pink too! I have a white version from a few years back. The print has always reminded me of Marilyn Monroe, one of my favorite gals. Both tops run true to size.

Good morning! Today’s feature is another Mommy and me ensemble in tropic palm leaf print dresses. They’re so cute and fun for a casual summer day. I found both my dress and Ava’s to fit true to size. My dress has some padding for a built in bra (though I still wore a bra with mine) and a cute criss cross open back design, which is very eye catching! Ava’s dress has the same palm leaf pattern, but with adorable ruffles along the chest and shoulders. We had a blast playing in the sand, running, kicking the ball around, and having a little picnic on my beach blanket. Afterwards we took a slow walk to enjoy the evening. It’s these little moments that are always special and end up creating a memorable day.

Mint Sailor Dress (On Sale!!) || White Disc Hat || Sunglasses || Wicker Bag || Yellow Wedge Espadrilles || Pink & Blue Co Bracelet c/o || 

Good morning, friends! What a dreamy evening it was to take a stroll along the harbor and Main Street. With the golden sun slowly setting, the sweet fragrance of lilacs in the air, and the warm breeze softly rustling, it truly felt like paradise. Gazing upon the harbor with its endless boats and ships is one of my favorite pastimes that I do quite frequently while visiting the Cape. This mint swing dress with mid-century mariner art upon it was the perfect ensemble to wear for the evening stroll. It’s on major sale right now too! Featuring an array of adorable sailor motifs, white buttons to secure the darted bodice, a white lapel collar that flares out to the cap sleeves, a button belt to cinch in your fabulous hour glass figure, and front pockets to carry your favorite necessities in. The dress runs true to size. Along this walk we also stopped to get our yearly photo with JFK’s statue at the Hyannis museum. Ava always gets so excited to see him, running right up to him to say hello.

These are by far the cutest swimsuits Ava and I have! I adore anything that’s mommy and me matching, especially when they have a fun retro feel to them. These red polka dot swimsuits are the hit of the summer season, not to mention eye catching and darling with their sweet ruffles along the top. I found the sizing to be true to size for the toddler version. The adult version runs small. I would recommend sizing up one size for a comfortable fit.

These photos were taken out first day on vacation at the Cape. The weather was amazing and the beaches were practically untouched with an abundance of seashells laying on top of the sand. Ava had a field day collecting all of her seashell treasures and then arranging them on my towel!

There’s no denying I’m a complete sucker for tulle. For me, it’s one of the most feminine and lovely fabric there is. As cliche as it sounds, it definitely has major princess vibes as well. Continuing with the floral theme this week, this midi dress has a demure floral crochet design on the chest, a high neck, and a flounced tulle skirt. This dress is truly the belle of the ball! The size runs true to size. I’m in a UK 6, the equivalent of a US 2.

Today’s dress boasts a floral bouquet on top of a white background with a pink ribbon around the waist. The sleeves have a darling pleated detail that stand out and give the dress a unique touch. With a fitted bodice and box pleated midi skirt, this dress is perfect for just about any occasion be it a wedding, bridal shower, cocktail party, or simply a day out. The dress runs true to size.

Did anyone catch the series finale of The Big Bang Theory last night? It was one of my moms favorite shows and my dad watches it every night in reruns and when a new episode would air. It’s the longest running multi camera sitcom ever. I thought they did a wonderful and heartfelt job with the finale. The elevator works again!!

Happy Friday, everyone! For the past three years, Ava and I have always worn matching or similar outfits for Mother’s Day. It’s a tradition that we’re going to keep going for as long as we can! When Ava first saw me in this floral 1940s inspired dress, she said, “mommy, that dress is so beautiful.” She’s really been getting into dressing up and taking photos with me and wanted to dress in her own floral dress for the shoot. She looks so angelic in these photos too. She’s my precious little angel. I was also teaching her how to twirl her skirt during some of these shots. She’s getting the hang of it! It was a gorgeous day outside that we made the most of with many wonderful memories at our favorite spots in the park.

Ava’s dress came from TJ Maxx, which she also wore for Palm Sunday. It’s a great spot to find unique dresses at a great price. I’ve gotten many of hers there over the years. My dress not only boasts a great deal of charm, but also grace with its pink floral cascading throughout the 1940s style embellishments. The bodice has a multitude of pin tucks, centered by a classic winged collar, highlighted by long sleeves (that I rolled up), and a button cuffed for added vintage accent. The wide banded waistline slims and elongates your hourglass while the swing skirt features gentle gathers for a delightful flair. This is one of the most lovely dresses that I own. Everything about it makes me feel at my very best. The sizing for the dress runs small. While the dress does fit, it’s rather tight in the waist. I would suggest going up one size for comfort.

Don't forget to look below for our other Mother’s Day outfits from the past three years! Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mamas out there. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Good morning, friends! What more can I say than I’m absolutely head over heels in love with this dress. The light pink color along with the charming novelty print made up of birdcages, pinned butterflies, and postage stamps adds to the pin-up perfection. The shirt dress with a darted bodice, belt, notched collar, and darling cap sleeves all lend to the flare of the 1950s. Did I mention it has pockets too?! Simply swooning. The fit is true to size. How cute are these pearl clips!! Pearl clips are a huge trend right now, really any hair accessory, and with good reason. They have a vintage sophistication, add some charm, and the practicality of keeping your hair out of your face. I’m all about that. The set I have comes with ten pieces (two of each style) for under $13. They’re perfect for various hair styles (pinning hair back on one side, pinning back both sides, using a clip to pin a chignon…the list goes on), matching with you mini me, or using double clips on one side. Ava was so excited to wear one of the clips so we would match! I love these photos with her and I as well. She really is the sweetest! She always kisses me whenever we take photos together and I was able to capture some of those moments above.

Happy Tuesday, friends!  What a gorgeous day yesterday was! I cannot wait to share some of the photos Ava and I took. After she got out of school, we spent the entire day outside basking in the sunshine at one of our favorite parks. We took a walk, played in the sand, made some new friends, and had a picnic. 

One of my favorite parts about spring are the blossom trees. Soaking in their beauty for as long as I can brings me so much joy. This top from Chicwish has a gorgeous floral pattern, v-neck design with ruffle and crochet trimmings, and elastic cuffs. It is a bit sheer, but I found wearing a nude bra underneath was fine. No need to wear an extra tank top. This whole outfit gives me dreamy vibes from the 1940s, which are absolutely swoon worthy!

Welcome to my favorite month of the year! So many wonderful things happen in May that make my heart fill with joy. Not only does the weather start to finally turn around (April showers bring May flowers!), but we have Mother’s Day, my birthday, May the 4th be with you for the Star Wars fans, Memorial Day, and our annual vacation to the Cape. It’s a month that I’ve looked forward to for as long as I can remember and still do to this day. I long to be spend time outdoors and May is the month where that finally starts to happen on a consistent basis. So here’s to the month of May, my favorite month of the year!

It’s a priority of mine to always look put together whether I’m dressed in jeans, a skirt, or a dress. On my more laid back days you’ll find me in some variation of this casual elegant outfit. This look is favorite of mine for still being dressed up, yet in a relaxed fashion. The pleated floral skirt is a dream to wear! I’m a big fan of pleats with them being especially fun for a good twirl. Ava and I were walking around looking at all of the cherry blossoms in town during this shoot. She is the absolute sweetest too. I cannot say enough how lucky I am to have her. She loves to give me kisses when we get photos together, which melts my heart. She also kept picking flowers for me and gets so excited to give them to me, which of course earns her another kiss!

Happy Tuesday, friends! What a busy past couple of days Ava and I have had. To top it all off, tonight the Avengers are going to be at our local McDonalds! Ava’s pretty excited to meet them.   

When we’re super busy, I love to just throw on a dress and go. It’s a simple way to look chic andput together when time is of the essence. Another go-to solution are accessories in natural fabrics like straw, wicker, or rattan. Not only do they give some texture to an outfit, they go with everything, and feel effortless. You’ll be hard pressed to find me without them during the spring and summer months. I’ve been living in these woven mules, which are so comfortable to wear. They fit true to size and go with everything I put on. They’re going to be my go-to shoe for summer. This little floral dress has slightly puffed sleeves and a peplum hem. It’s perfect for a night out or when matched with natural fabrics like I did, it has a dressed down feeling for the day.

Happy weekend, friends! Ava and I went to go see Avengers End Game yesterday and man, what an amazing way to end the series! Both of us loved the movie that clocks in at just over three hours. I laughed, I cried, I was on the edge of my seat, and I wholeheartedly enjoyed the entire journey I’ve been on with these characters over the past eleven years. What a journey it’s been too. The entire theater clapped at the end, which I always love. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but definitely go see it, especially all of the fans.

 This yellow tea dress was a dream to shoot under the weeping cherry blossom tree. With a bowtie at the neck, ruffles, and a floral print, this dress fit right in with romantic charm the trees have. Ava particularly enjoyed playing under them! We both wanted to wear yellow florals too. This is the cutest little number to throw on for a day out or even for a date night.
