Good morning and happy Monday! I think many can agree that one of the most comfortable things to wear is a t-shirt. Even better, this dress made to feel as if you’re wearing a comfy t-shirt and trust me, it is sooooo comfortable to wear! The ruffles add a nice touch and give the dress a little feminine flair. I also adore the dusty rose shade, which is also perfect for fall. It’s my go-to shade of pink once the leaves start turning. I pulled out my other dusty rose accessories, including these bow back heels that I’m absolutely in love with! I’m such a sucker for bows. They're also very comfortable and run true to size.

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. Some places near me had even started to do their fireworks display, which is always a treat to see and quite magical. It’s one of my favorite parts about the 4th of July! 

This romantic ensemble started with this beautiful Lavender Swiss Dot Top with a subtle bell sleeve. I love a playful sleeve! I went with a monochromatic color scheme and also wanted the outfit to have a flow about it, which I think adds to the romantic vibe. A pleated skirt has a lovely swish movement to it, while the tapered bell sleeve also helps add some movement to the top.

Good morning and welcome to the new week! Lately, I’ve been loving a blue and yellow combo for summer. This outfit in particular, it feels so light and airy with a touch of casual elegance. It also reminds me of Cape Cod. The skirt has a beautiful ruffle dip hem with a light gingham pattern throughout. It fits true to size and the material feels wonderful on. 

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I went to go see the new Jurassic World movie which was an entertaining delight! Talk about a summer blockbuster. Chris Pratt is always fun to watch too. I also went to go see Solo: A Star Wars Story and that my friends is a must see for any Star Wars fan. The movie had almost a western tone to it within the Star Wars Universe and it definitely worked. I loved Donald Glover as Lando, but felt something was just missing with Alden Ehrenrheic as Han Solo, though he looked the part and still did a good job. The moment when Han and Chewy got to pilot the Millennium Falcon together for the first time, that was magically heartwarming.

Good morning, friends! This dress could not have been more perfect for being on the Cape.  The flutter sleeves give the dress just the right amount of flair while keeping the look classic, elegant, and fun! I love how comfortable the dress is too. This was another look that I matched with Ava, though we didn’t get too many photos together other than our macaron snap and our yearly family photo in front of the Nausset Lighthouse, which is the lighthouse on the Cape Cod chips bag! This is one of those dresses I love to keep in rotation all summer long. It’s so easy to throw on with some sandals and go. 

What a gorgeous day we had! We started at one of our favorite antique stores and then headed to Cake and Islands Dessert Shoppe. They’re known for their sea glass candy, but also their macaron cookies. They were amazingly good! We ate all of them on the beach, haha. Next we stopped at the National Seashore Park office in Eashtham, which is also where the Nausset Lighthouse is. Fun fact, on August 7, 1961 President Kennedy signed a bill establishing the Cape Cod National Seashore to preserve the Great Beach and prevent large scale development from occurring at other places along the Eastern seaboard. It includes 43,607 acres and nearly 40 miles of seashore along the Atlantic coast. After visiting the park office, we went to the beach where Ava played with a sand turtle toy she got at the park store and then eventually to the lighthouse to get some photos. Ava thought someone lived inside the lighthouse and kept knocking on the door. She is adorable to watch! To end the day, we stopped in Chatham, my second favorite town on the Cape. It is beyond charming. We stopped for dinner at the Chatham Raw Bar to try out their oysters after hearing so many good reviews. Trust me, they were the best oysters I ever had! I’m kicking myself for not getting a photo of them, but I literally inhaled them as soon as they got to the table.

Hello all and happy Monday!  I am currently writing this from outside as it is such a gorgeous day! We had rain for about 75 perfectof the weekend so it truly feels like a breath of fresh air. Speaking of the weekend, did anyone watch the Royal Wedding?? I didn’t see it live, but as soon as I woke up, I watched all of the highlights and read up on all of the details. It looked like a dream wedding and Harry and Meghan were so happy! I couldn’t be happier for them. I also went to go see Deadpool 2 and loved it. Ryan Reynolds is perfect in the part and oh so halarious. If you liked the first Deadpool, then you are sure to pleased with this one as well. 

 I’ve always been a huge fan of floral prints and wear them year long no matter the season. When the seasons do change into fall and winter, I change over from light brights to dark florals in order to keep rocking my favorite print. They’re also my favorite backdrop to photograph against. The song lyric, “these are a few of my favorite things” comes to mind when thinking of this dress! The eye catching white flowers set against a beautiful blush background make for one stunning combo. The ruffle hem adds some feminine flair while the ruffle cut out in the back gives this dress a fun sexy twist that still feels elegant! On a side note, does anyone know the name of the white flowering trees I’m standing by? They smelled AMAZING! Possibly jasmine? No one knew for sure, but they were increadible.

Happy Friday, friends! I’m puuuurfectly in love with this cute top! I’ve always been a cat girl and couldn’t resist the feline print. The top runs true to size. I’m wearing a small for reference. One of my favorite bag trends has been the circle bag. They’re reminiscent of circular vintage luggage and I’m sure you’ve seen me with them many many times! I’m a vintage girl at heart! I found this cute lilac one for under $30 and cannot get over how pretty the color is for spring. Absolutely darling. 

All of these pastels have me longing for the warm spring weather to arrive and luckily, we’re going to have some this weekend! We’re supposed to have 70 degree weather today and tomorrow, but then it goes back to the 50s. Sigh, C'est la vie. I’m making sure to get in as many outdoor activities as I can including a bon fire that I’m really looking forward to!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! Enjoy.

Hello and a very happy good morning to you!  I fell so in love with this top that I had to show it two ways! Let’s be honest, we rewear our pieces all the time or there’s a certain favorite top/pair of jeans/jacket that is always in constant rotation. I know I have a favorite pair of jeans that I grab for all the time. I’ve worn them on the blog numerous amounts of times. In fact, I’ve worn them so much that I’ve made a conscious effort as of late to showcase other pairs of jeans on here, haha. Regardless, what I love about personal style is seeing people imagine different ways to wear the same piece. Here, I have two different looks, both equally enchanting and easy to recreate. I adore the bright green and pink in this top. Plus, the pretty tulips! Oh spring, where are you?? On that note, we’re getting more snow today. Booo. It’s supposed to be bad enough that we’re even under a state wide state of emergency. Stay safe, everyone!

Happy December 1st and a wonderful Friday morning to you! I wanted to sneak in one more fall related post even though it’s the Christmas season now, especially with it being December already! This look has so much of a New England aura to it with its classic touch and slight preppy feel. You can never go wrong with a chunky sweater to keep you warm and cozy. I love pairing over the knee boots with skirts too. They keep your legs warm when there’s a chill in the air and definitely elongate your legs. 

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
