Sale Alert :: Shopbop Extra 20% Off Sale Styles!


Is it me or does this week seem extra long and it's only Tuesday!? Labor Day weekend is right around the corner ( hard to believe I know) and Shopbop has just launched an extra 20% off their sale items just in time for the last weekends of Summer! While making the boutique below I hearted a few items for myself.

A jean fanatic I am loving these and these paired with this top for day and this top for night!

Need a dress for a September wedding? I like this one and this one which can be worn to black tie or non!

I am a big fan of the brand Wayf and this dress with a jean jacket is great for those Indian Summer night's out ( I am loving this wrap J.O.A one as well!)

Shop our boutique below and don't forget to enter code TREAT20 at checkout!

Shop Spring :: Birthday Discount


I don't know how I stumbled upon Spring but I did and I'm quite happy about it. I can find all my favorite brands in one place and add them into one cart for one easy and simple check out. It's their birthday and to celebrate they are offering 20% off (some restrictions apply) with code SPRINGBDAY20. I thought this would be the perfect time to stock up on some of my favorite beauty products since they rarely go on sale. Here's what I added::
  • Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask:: I actually already repurchased this mask last week because I loved the sample so much and decided to buy it again through Spring because I know I will use it a few times a week. Hands down my favorite mask. Leaves my skin brighter and tighter after each use. 
  • Kai Body Glow:: I'm a big fan of Kai and tested their body glow spray at CJ Laing on Nantucket. I loved, loved it and wanted to buy it but had Charlie with me and he wanted out. I went back two days later and they had sold out of it! Lucky for me, I found it on Spring. It's a dry oil spray that gives your body the perfect glow. Not greasy at all and has such a pretty and subtle scent. Definitely a summer must!
  • Orchid Facial Oil:: I've been meaning to test out this line of natural products and have heard great things about Orchid Facial Oil. My skin is on the drier side and apparently this is perfect for that. 
I had about ten other beauty products in my cart but had to tone it down.. Spring has just about every brand you could imagine (about 1500+) and not just beauty so make sure you take a look. Here is the list of all the brands they carry!

Some favorites:: Club Monaco (just bought this top and this cashmere sweater), Mother, Charlotte Tilbury, Rails, I could go on...

Style Steals :: Gold Jewelry


Chrissy and I have a deep love for gold jewelry. We love to stack up our necks, hands and wrists with gold pieces that we have acquired over the years. Real gold can be super expensive so we have found some pieces that don't break the bank! I am loving this set of rings from Kendra Scott ( and they are under $100!)


Baublebar always has a few gold pieces and two designers that always nails the gold look for less for are Jules Smith and Cloverpost. Obviously there are tons wish list items that unfortunately are not style steals but every once in a while you can have that treat yourself moment!

P.S one of my favorite Etsy designers is this one!

Friday Favorites :: Deals & Steals

TOP:: Club Monaco (on sale) // BAG:: Mar y Sol // SHORTS :: Gap (old) // SUNGLASSES:: Ray-Ban // NECKLACE:: Similar here

Our trip to Nantucket is slowly coming to an end. Part of me is excited to get home and get the kids ready for school but another part of me is seriously sad about it. We spent the last two weeks here and life has been simple- chaotic with three kids but simple. No schedules, no plans or places to be. Just letting the day happen and going with it. Good news is we still have a good chunk of summer left and we plan on taking full advantage of it. Mornings at the beach and long (hopefully) afternoon naps seem like the perfect way to finish off the summer!

There are a few good sales going on right now and I thought I'd share a few favorites here::
  • CLUB MONACO:: 25% off Women's dresses. This Poupette St. Barth coverup and this one is included! This is a great everyday tee shirt dress with the cutest tie waist detail- I have it and love it! They also have a huge selection of summer items on sale, including the top I have on in the picture above. I get so many compliments every time I wear it!
  • LOFT:: 40-50% off everything! Love this utility jacket for fall and the color of this blouse. And this flutter sleeved white top is perfect for right now!

Italy Recap :: Part Two Positano / Capri

HAT:: Brixton // COVERUP:: Zara // SANDALS:: Sam Edelman // BAG:: CJ Laing // SUNNIES:: Ray Ban

It's hard to put into words just how much Grant and I loved Le Sirenuse. The view's over looking Positano and the Mediterranean  were unbelievable. We both instantly lit up when we received our giant mermaid key to our room and were greeted with probably the best lemonade I've ever had. We tend to gravitate towards more "boutique" style hotels ( we frequent the Mark in New York for dinner and drinks) so we felt like Le Sirenuse was right up our alley.

At night we went downstairs to the infamous Champagne & Oyster bar before heading out to eat and with super trendy music playing in the background while soaking in the scenery ( sipping on a incredibly fresh cocktail with lemon of course) I did not want this week to come to an end.



DRESS:: Zimmerman // BAG:: Cult Gaia // SHOES:: BP // EARRINGS:: Bronzallure

 Le Sirenuse offered a stunning pool lined with lemon trees where we would spend parts of our days depending on what time our activities were. The first two days we had explored the town, bought my mom a bottle of Limón cello, drooled over the beautiful ceramics ( and bought not on purpose matching driving loafers!). They were a total steal only 40 Euro! We ate some of the best pizza I've ever had at Tre Sorelle ( adjacent to Chez Black where we had dinner) and then enjoyed more lemonade by the pool.


SUNNIES:: similar here // BATHING SUIT:: L*Space // NECKLACES:: Lola James Jewelry // WRAP:: Echo (it's a scarf but it's so long I used it as a wrap!)




Pool Essentials! This Tarte spray was a game changer. I used it in flight, post flight, during our day trips and while lounging at the pool!! It kept my skin hydrated all day plus doubles as a primer. For a little cheek color I always carry a shade of Glossier's cloud paint. I chose to go with my newest one, beam. For SPF I love Baby Lips for lip protection which a lot of people forget about and Cerave zinc for my body. You can really just put it on once and you're set for the day. I normally burn if I don't reapply but the zinc kept me protected all day long!

Our third day in Positano we took a boat over to Nerano bay to eat lunch and lounge at Conca Del Sogno. Le Sirenuse actually offers a boat to take over to Nerano bay depending on weather, but you have to make sure you do this in advance since it fills up quickly! Grant and I had heard so many things about Conca we knew we had to make the trip. Nerano Bay is halfway between Positano and Capri and in a way it reminded me of Ravello. Small and tucked away you'd almost miss it! Conca Del Sogno did not disappoint. We had an amazing lunch ( linguine with lobster) and then grabbed two lounge chairs to put our stuff on before heading to the rocks and jumping into the Med for an afternoon swim. If you're heading to Positano, I highly recommend taking a boat over to Nerano Bay!





On our last day - you could say we saved the best for last, we took a private boat out and over to Capri. We got off at the main port and took a cab up to the square to walk around and explore. The majority of the island is pedestrian so it's a ton of walking and it can get pretty crowded in the afternoons so I recommend doing some exploring in the morning.

 After an unsuccessful shopping hunt ( my wallet has thanked me) we got back on the boat and circled around Capri to see the grottos and go for a swim. I can easily say this was one of the best days of my life! Going around this stunning island by boat and peaking inside colorful grottos ( yes colorful! there is a blue, an emerald, a white and red!) we drank prosecco and took in all of the natural beauty around us.



ONE PIECE:: L*Space // WRAP:: Echo // SUNNIES:: Ray Ban // GRANT'S SUIT:: Chubbies





After our grotto swimming we headed back towards Positano and stopped in Nerano Bay again for lunch. This time we ate at La Scoglia which is famous for their zucchini pasta ( above). It may not sound too appetizing to some of you , it didn't to me but it was easily one of my favorite meals of the entire trip.

It was hard to leave but I know we will eventually be back. The week was filled with amazing food, wine, weather and sights. If anyone would like further recommendations on where we ate and more details on our hotels please feel free to email us!
