Weekend Recap

Grant and I decided to drive up to Nantucket this past weekend and the weather (plus the food and wine) did not disappoint! I think I successfully ate my way through the island in 24 hours - everything is just that good!

We drove up to Hyannis early Saturday morning and caught the 930am ferry (he drove, P and I slept!) We actually sat up top for the ferry ride, which is outside so I was relived to have worn these Beyond Yoga leggings and this Wildfox sweatshirt. Both are some of the coziest pieces I own!

Although way too fast, the weekend was a success. We had the best time letting Penelope off leash for a long walk something she never gets to do in the city!
Below are some pieces I am currently loving and stay tuned for a post this week featuring my outfit above!

Friday Favorites :: Easy Dresses

If you live in NYC or happened to be visiting this week, we have experienced quite the heat wave! I tend to freak out a little inside because that means I can no longer wear my beloved jeans but I have to bite the bullet and transition into dresses.

Commuting to work in the City can be quite daunting with the general hustle and bustle of rush hour, the survival of the fittest to push your way onto the subway and those days where the bus just decides to not show up for thirty minutes. Combine all of that PLUS a heat wave and you wish you just stayed home plunked down next to the AC.

So with that - enter easy, breezy dresses. Every Summer before it gets extremely warm I like to scoop up a few dresses from GAP, Old Navy & Loft that I can just rotate for my work week. These inexpensive pieces don't skimp on style!

This GAP dress was one of the first I have purchased for this season. It's honestly perfect for Spring & Summer! Only a few short weeks ago when NYC didn't feel like a frying pan, I wore this dress with these booties and this jean jacket! It was the cutest outfit for a Spring workday. I then also wore it to Mother's Day brunch with these shoes! 

Here's to looking off into the weekend! Below are a roundup off all of my favorite easy summer dresses to wear for work and play!

Club Monaco Spend & Save Event

We love waking up to sale emails especially when it's from one of our all time favorites. Club Monaco just launched their Spend & Save Event today and we couldn't be more excited. Save 20% on orders $200+, 25% on $300+ and 30% on $400+ with code Summer. I've been a huge fan of Club Monaco ever since it first opened and what I love most about it is I never seem to tire of their pieces. I actually just wore a Club Monaco dress that I bought over five years ago. I think this dress will be one of those dresses, one that I continue to go back to for years to come. It's the perfect wedding guest dress!

I also have my eye on this dress. Simple and perfect for summer. Something that I can wear with flat sandals during the day and dress up with wedges at night. Love the tie detail. I don't tend to wear black too often but this jumpsuit is beautiful- check out the back! This top is also another favorite of mine that I've already worn a ton this spring. Pair it with light colored denim and you have the perfect summery look! And definitely be sure to check out their collection of swimwear- AMAZING!

Pop of Coral

 TOP:: Velvet by Graham & Spencer (on sale here but limited sizes) // JEANS:: J.Brand (old but similar here) // EARRINGS:: Kenneth Jay Lane // BAG:: Kayu // SHOES:: Jimmy Choo (Less expensive style here) // RING:: Madewell

Let me just start off by wishing all the moms out there a very belated Happy Mother's Day! Mine kind of went something like this: tantrum, meltdown, spit up, meltdown, tantrum, tantrum, meltdown, spit up. Charlie was only responsible for the spit up part because he is actually THE perfect baby (minus the whole waking up at 5 am every day). And my other two hoodlums didn't really get the whole Mother's Day memo and decided that Sunday was the best day to unravel. So my husband and I decided we are having a Mother's Day do over next weekend when hopefully everyone is in a much better mood. But meltdowns or not, I'm so grateful I get to be their mom. They are my greatest joys... even when they tell me I'm not their friend anymore. (What are the teenage years going to look like?!?)

On to the outfit:: I'm a huge fan of an "all white" look for summer. I think I spend the majority of the summer in either some sort of white dress or white jeans and a white top. I think you might know by now I have an addiction to white tops. I rarely wear black- a few weeks ago I put on a black silk top and my husband looked at me funny, paused, and said "why do you look so different right now?" I have nothing against it, I just prefer to wear lighter colors. I saw this top by Velvet while browsing online about a month ago and it immediately caught my attention. The crochet detail is so pretty and feminine- and the keyhole detail on the back (not pictured but click on the link to see) is stunning. I also found it for 40% off here- limited sizes!

It also comes in a few different styles:: this dress version which I'm dying for and it's ON SALE. It comes in a one shoulder style which is so pretty and fresh for summer, it comes in a black dress style, and this looser tee shirt style (here, too!) I just discovered the Velvet by Graham & Spencer boutique on Greenwich Avenue and was so pleasantly surprised when I popped in. I usually come across their items while browsing online but loved going to their actual store to see their entire collection- check out their online boutique here.

These earrings are just about everywhere right now but I haven't come across a color quite like the ones I'm wearing. This "coral" shade is so vibrant in person and I've gotten so many compliments every time I've worn them! They also come in seven other colors. And if you are looking for a less expensive version- find them here!
