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.

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.

Knot Striped Shirt c/o || Mid rise White Denim Shorts || Sunglasses || Similar Basket Bag || Necklace || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Tassel Earrings || Kate Spade Keds (Old, Similar) ||

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.

Palm Print Bikini c/o || Palm Print Top (TJ Maxx) Similar Tops Here And Here || White Jean Shorts || Sunglasses || Earrings || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o ||

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
