Stars & Stripes

I can't believe July 4th weekend is just around the corner. June seemed to zoom by - I guess time truly does fly, when your having fun! This weekend I am heading to Connecticut to spend time with my family and friends by the beach. I can't wait for morning runs on the water, seafood dinners, and evening walks to get ice-cream. My bag can't come home without a bit of red, white and blue. Here is a bit of inspiration for your weekend.  Wishing you a safe and wonderful holiday! xx

Summer Hours

A little inspiration for the official start of Summer! Last weekend was absolutely gorgeous. My best girlfriends and I have been making trips to Brooklyn a bit more often lately with the warmer weather, as we love the rooftop restaurants, outdoor beer gardens, and trendy neighborhoods. (As a little side note, I am loving this tinted moisturizer for Summer. It goes on smoothly and acts as a foundation, while also protecting your skin with SPF. Best of all, it's great for sensitive skin!) On Saturday, we took a ferry out to Red Hook to eat lobster rolls at Red Hook Lobster Pound. They were simply divine! We spent the remainder of our afternoon at Brooklyn Crab and enjoyed the sunset. The vibe was so much fun - it almost felt as if I had escaped to a vacation destination just for the day! xx

Summer To Do List

The sweet Summer season is here. I always have an ongoing list with things to make exploring my pretty city that much more fun! Last year, one of my favorite things to do was picnic in Central Park. This Summer, I hope to make that a regular weekend activity along with the below. What is on your list? xx

 1. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.
2. Eat a lobster roll (or two... or three.)
3. Find a signature Summer cocktail. This little spot seems like a good place to start!
4. Cook a meal with all fresh produce from a farmer's market trip.
5. Take a trip home to the beach with my best girlfriends.
6. Have dinner on a rooftop with Manhattan city views.
7. Attend a movie in the park.
8. Take a Summer boat cruise on the Hudson River.
9. Continue to make new memories with my sweet family and friends.

The Summer Tote


The past few days, definitely have me ready for Summer! In preparation, I thought it would be fun to pull together a list of tote bags on my radar. This one has been a consistent companion with me for the past few seasons. I love it's fun flair with the pom-poms and stripes, but also how functional it is for weekends spent running around the city or last minute errands. In general, I adore a good bag that can be used for multiple purposes. The Summer tote is always one of my favorite's, as it's ideal for the beach, farmer's market visits, and long weekend trips. xx
