White Crochet Dress c/o || Rattan Basket Bag || Sunglasses || Similar White Sandals || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Rainbow Circle Ring || Similar Drop Earrings ||

Good morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I got to catch up with a dear family friend, went antiquing with my dad, went for brunch with Caitlin at The State Street Grill (which was amazingggg, definitely go try if you live in the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre area), caught up on some work, and had the yummiest Mexican dinner, also with Caitlin! Also, if you’re looking for some shows to watch on Netflix, I finished both In The Dark and What If. Both of them kept my interest and on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t stop watching! I started Mind Hunters too, which I highly recommend if you like a psychological thrill. It’s slower, but incredibly well done.

For me, a white dress feels just a refreshing to wear as it looks. This gorgeous white crochet midi dress is a true stunner and is sure to turn heads! This is the outfit I wore for Sunday brunch this past weekend. The hem has sheer detailing along with the waist having a cutout pattern. The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a UK size 6.

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.

Floral Maxi Dress c/o || Yellow Wedge Espadrilles || Sunglasses || Madison Braids Headband c/o || Similar Straw Tote || Similar Shell Earrings || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o ||

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.

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.

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.

With pretty peonies adoring this gorgeous dress from Chicwish, it’s no wonder you’ll be the belle of the ball! Faux pearl buttons and a slight puff to the sleeves keep this dress on trend while still remaining a classic piece for years to come. It fits true to size and the length is perfect for petite gals! I’m 5’2 and had no issues with the length. The mid section is fitted and reminded me of a corset, which full disclosure, made my boobs look amazing! Haha, honestly, if a dress can do that, then I’m sold.

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.

After making a pit stop at A Hole In One Donuts, amazing pastries and coffee, we traveled back to go hit the beach.

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.

Yellow Tweed Dress c/o || Rattan Tote || Sunglasses || Yellow Espadrille Wedges || Earrings || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o ||

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a fun July 4th yesterday! We celebrated with a great deal of pool time and a yummy cookout followed by some ice cream, lakes rides, and fireworks. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite dresses that I’ve been wearing non-stop lately. I typically pull it out when I have a special occasion and it does not disappoint! This sleeveless dress, in a sunshine tweed, falls above the knees with a v-neck and fringe details to add some fun texture to the look. The dress fits true to size. I always feel a level of sophistication and overall happiness when donning this tweed frock. There’s something about it that keeps me smiling all day long.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
