Pink Stripe Sweater || Pink Stripe Joggers || Hoop Earrings || Rainbow Circle Ring ||

Good morning and a very happy Wednesday, friends! When I’m at home, I love to relax in cozy lounge wear, which I also wear as pajamas. Who doesn’t love to be snuggled up and cozy?! These pink striped ones are sooooo soft and feel like a being wrapped in a warm blanket. They’re both lightweight making them ideal for the fall and early winter. The sweater has a slight oversized fit and both run true to size. The joggers even have pockets!!! The pink striped sweater is not yet listed online, though I did find it in stores. A solid pink, gray, black, or a blue and white striped sweater are listed online as of right now.

Two Piece Set c/o || Similar Sandals || Wicker Basket Bag || Moon & Star Necklaces || Similar Seashell Earrings || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Rainbow Circle Ring ||

Good morning and happy Wednesday, friends! Last night, Ava, my dad and I, all had an absolutely marvelous time getting to experience one of my favorite television shows on the big screen! Five newly colorized episodes of I Love Lucy, plus a documentary on the colorization process, were shown for fans of all ages to enjoy the show like never before. We even received some Lucy posters from Cinemark to celebrate the one night event. What a treat it was to watch Lucy with fans who truly love the show and to be able to hear Ava laugh out loud at her crazy antics! It’s a night I will never forget.

This two piece button front set has a romantic carefree feeling to it similar to how I think of the long golden days of summer. Though I typically do not wear too many cropped pieces, this top paired with the high waisted skirt show just the right amount of skin. It’s a playful and flirty outfit that’s perfect for the hot and humid days. I also love a two piece set since you can mix and match the items with different pieces already in your wardrobe. Both pieces fit true to size. I’m wearing an XS.

Off The Shoulder Lemon Dress c/o || Sunglasses || Lemon Bag || Similar Sandals || Tassel Earrings || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o ||

One print that always feels like summer is a lemon one. Perhaps it’s the sunshine yellow color or the thoughts of a nice cold glass of fresh squeezed lemonade that bring out the feelings of the good ol’ summertime. This particular dress even incorporates fun polka dots and an off the shoulder style into the mix making for once chic ensemble! The dress fits true to size and comes with a removable sash to cinch in your waist.

Ah the romance of a vintage Italian movie in the sweet summertime. That’s exactly what this floral maxi off the shoulder dress from Chicwish reminded me of while wearing it on a gorgeous summer evening. It turned out to be an evening to remember too making this dress all the more special. It fits true to size and has the perfect amount of a fun and flirty feel. A tie sash comes with it to cinch in your waist for a nice fit and flare. I’m also wearing a cute braided headband from Madison Braids that makes styling your hair super easy and stylish at the same time. The color I’m wearing is Strawberry Blonde.

Good morning, friends! While you’ll almost certainly find me in a dress most days, it is nice to switch it up with a fun pair of pants, especially these leopard skinny jeans, which are currently on sale! This look is great for a summer date night, but these jeans could also be worn for more casual days with a simple black or white t-shirt or even to the office with a chic pair of flats and a burgundy or navy top. Pops of pink also look fabulous with leopard as well! As for sizing with the jeans, I would go down one size for the best fit.

Ava’s Rainbow Maxi Dress c/o || Rod Gold Sandals ||

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! What a spectacular weekend we had! First, Saturday July 20th was the 50th anniversary of the Saturn 5 rocket landing on the moon. John F. Kennedy’s dream of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth was not only realized, but celebrated with vigor all these years later. My family has always been big with space and the moon so this was a very cool moment to commemorate. The heat wave was also in full effect, which meant lots of pool time! Luckily, we have family members with pools so we were hopping from one to the other. Ava and I also celebrated National Ice Cream Day on Sunday with some yummy treats from one of our favorite local spots.

A few months back I wore the adult version of this fun rainbow striped maxi here. Recently, Chicwish released the kids version, which makes for some wonderful mommy and me summer moments! Ava was in love with this dress and it’s bright colors. The self ties at the shoulder are adjustable and have the cutest tassels on them along with tassel on the hem of the dress. A word to the wise, hand wash this frock only! I accidentally threw mine into the wash one day and many of the tassels fell off.

Another day, another blue and white outfit perfect for fun in the summer sun! This jumpsuit was calling my name with its feminine retro spin on one of the comfiest pieces I’ve worn all summer long. The soft linen fabric has a v-neck secured by two adjustable self tie straps. The fully lined jumpsuit feels just easy breezy to wear as it looks. I was initially worried about the length of the legs, which I why I typically do not wear jumpsuits (short person problems!), but the length hit at a spot I was comfortable with right above my ankle. The legs are supposed to be cropped, which means they’ll look more regular length on me. I’m 5ft 2in for reference. Later in the day, I switched out the pearl headband for this knotted straw one before heading to an al fresco dinner at sunset. One of the waiters came over to me to say I looked like a movie star, so there’s always that, haha! He especially loved these sunglasses and I must concur. They are my go-to signature pair that I wear almost every single day. I’m sure you’ve seen them quite a bit on here!

Good morning, friends! I wore this look while Ava and I went to go see the new Sprider-Man: Far From Home movie yesterday. It was really good! Ava and I are big fans of all of the superhero movies with Spider-Man having a special place in both of our hearts.

While I tend to dress up a great deal of the time, I also love good casual basics, with this look being ideal for a fun summer night out! A blue and white color combo is quintessential for summertime and one of my favorites. The button down top has a collar, cute pocket patch in the front, and a tie knot at the hem. The fabric is so comfy and not see through at all. It fits true to size.

I also finished up the new season of Stranger Things and wow, Hopper’s speech at the end! Ugh, I could not stop crying. Everyone else I talked to that has finished up season three was the same way. Who is the “American” at the end though?! I have my theories, haha, and cannot wait for season 4 next year!

Wishing my mom a very happy birthday in heaven today too! She would have been 62. I know she is looking down on all of us, especially Ava, smiling so big at getting to watch her grow. I see so much of my mom in Ava too, it’s truly amazing. Her legacy of love, kindness, and never ending strength live on in my family and I am forever grateful to have had her as my role model and mom.

One of my favorite photos of her at Rusty Rudder. She was so cool! If you look, all of us are actually in this photo too. My brother and dad are reflected in her sunglasses and I’m off to the left side lol.

Good morning, friends! One of my favorite prints to wear in the summer is a palm print, particularly in a pink and green combo. Not only do the two colors work so well together, adding to the overall happiness of the print, but it also symbolizes the obvious tropical vibe and overall feeling of being out on a beach relaxing with the ocean breeze softly swaying the palm leaves up above. There’s also a bit of vintage charm to the print that reminds me of Hollywood in the 1950s. Many times, I often conjure up images of how’ll I’ll be wearing an outfit when I see a particular piece online or in stores. Will I be wearing the piece while out running errands, relaxing at home, while on vacation, taking a stroll in the park, or out to brunch with friends. Similar to that, the palm print always brings a smile to my face thinking of the warm summer sun and easy carefree feeling summer days always seem to have. There’s a tremendous amount of cute palm print (even pink and green combos!) out there right now and at very affordable prices that will not break the bank. Everything from tops, dresses, bags, swimsuits, pjs, and shoes have the tropical image on them. Look below for some of my absolute favorite finds!

What a fun filled day this was on the Cape! It was actually a day that was a bit spontaneous and ended up being one with some cherished memories. We started the day at the Mass Audubon Society in Barnstable. What a treat for fans of the outdoors! Ava was particularly in love with the turtles they had inside. We walked the grounds of the forested area listening to all of the birds chirping their happy songs. The air was fragranced with the sweet smell of honeysuckle while rhododendrons were blossoming all around us. After that, we walked down to the beach area where kayakers were just finishing up. Across the way we could make out a lighthouse and also stumbled upon a plethora of beach roses, my absolute favorite! They are my favorite rose and dare I say, even my favorite flower.

Afterwards, we were famished and stumbled upon the Dolphin restaurant not to far down the road. What an absolute gem this place was. I got the tuna sandwich with a cup of chowder and a slice of peanut butter pie. The entire meal was drool worthy and affordable. The decor inside was full of beach and patriotic themes, all of course adding to the charm. Next door, we went to the Nirvana Coffee Company, which had a steady stream of customers the entire time we were there. Ava and I relaxed on the Adirondack chairs outside while enjoying the sunshine and passers going by. I got my usual vanilla latte and loved it. It was a nice moment of calm before our next stop.

After re-energizing, we wanted to end the day at the beach, opting to try a new one called Gray’s Beach in Yarmouth. I think for Ava, this beach was one of the highlights of her trip. Though the beach itself is smaller, you can walk out into the tide pools and across the way to the little islands. While wading in the shallower water, you can find all types of small sea creatures, which all of the kids were thrilled about. The beach is famous for its long boardwalk, extending out into the grass and water, where it ends for a beautiful sunset view. Looking across the way, you can see the tip of Sandy Neck beach. All around us was nature at its very finest.

My Favorite 4th of July Looks

Happy Monday and welcome to July! With the 4th close at hand, I thought it would be fun to go through my favorite patriotic looks over the years for some inspiration. All feature red, white, and blue colors and can be easily re-created with staples in your closet, especially stripes! Looking back, almost every single outfit has stripes, and most notably my favorite hat from Vineyard Vines that I’ve had for years. While it’s no longer available on the site, I was able to find it here in what looks to be an online boutique shop. It’s also on sale!

Good morning and happy Friday! Is there anything better than relaxing time spent by the water? I think not! Being by water, whether the ocean, lake, or stream, has always given me a sense of calm. The beautiful breeze that usually accompanies the water always reminds me of the Frank Sinatra song, “Summer Wind.” The lyrics go,

“The summer wind came blowin' in from across the sea
It lingered there, to touch your hair and walk with me
All summer long we sang a song and then we strolled that golden sand
Two sweethearts and the summer wind”

How very perfect to describe this fabulous flowing dress from a Chicwish, which captures the very essence of summer. Along with the forever favorite combo of blue and white, the lightweight fabric and flowing skirt  make this dress a go-to for fun in the sun.

One of my most favorite memories from my childhood is dressing up with my mom in our matching sunflower dresses whenever we traveled to the beach. I can remember it so vividly, even the matching sunflower hair ties we had for the dresses. They’re memories I cherish along with the dresses I still have, both my mom’s and mine. Last year, Ava and I tried on the dresses to see how they fit. It was a very emotional and special moment for me. I can’t wait for both of us to slip into them again!

Knowing the sentimentality behind a sunflower print, these dresses Ava and I wore above brought back memories of my mom and I from years past. My sunflower dress is an absolute favorite I’ve had for a few years now. When I saw Ava’s dress from Pat Pat, I knew it was a clear winner. The bright sunflower pattern along with the ruffle sleeves make for a darling summertime combo!

Good morning, friends! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Ours was jam packed with parties and get togethers, meeting old and new friends alike, and of course honoring all of the superhero dads for Father’s Day. We went to a neighborhood block party, which we made my family’s famous Scotch-A-Roos for. They were a big hit! We also went to my friends 30th birthday bash and celebrated the night away with friends and family at the lake.

Speaking of, this French terry cloth Sail sweatshirt was perfect to wear for an evening I spent watching the sunset and boaters at the lake. Decked out in my crisp summer whites, this sweatshirt felt so comfy and was the perfect weight for a cool summer night. It’s a pullover with a drawstring hood, ribbed cuffs and bottom hem, and of course the Sail design. If you know me, then you know how much I love sail boats and would eventually love to learn how to sail. It’s on my bucket list! I immediately fell in love with the design and comfiness of the sweatshirt, a new staple for summer!

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!

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.
