Father’s Day Gift Guide 2017


Hey dolls! Happy Tuesday! June is almost halfway over and that means two things to me – Father’s Day and my dad’s birthday. Luckily for my dad, I’m the type of daughter who gives him two separate gifts…even though the special days often fall on the same day. So when this time of year rolls around, I’m extra woke to gift-giving. No matter your price-point, I’ve got my roundup of picks to spoil dear ol’ dad this Sunday. My favorites include:


1. J. Crew Panama Hat – I love a good hat, and chances are your dad will too! He can spice up an outfit with this summery accessory, throwing it on for a day at the beach or an al fresco dinner with mom. Tres Chic!


2. Pottery Barn Waffle Weave Resort Robe – Who doesn’t love a luxurious robe that can make home feel like the Ritz-Carlton? I actually want one of these for when I step out of the shower and am bumming around the house. Sorry dad, might have to get one of these for myself too!


3. Salvatore Ferragamo Polo – This polo is for a classic gentleman on a casual day! I love the deep navy color and the tiny Ferragamo insignia on the collar – it’s luxurious but not too flashy.


4. Lanvin Silk Pocket Square – A pocket square is an easy way to upgrade an outfit. I love this luxurious silk ones from Lanvin and this micro space-print is out of this world. See what I did there? The pattern is understated, but a little funky – a great combination if you ask me.


5. Sur La Table Whiskey Stones – Whiskey stones for the dad who doesn’t want to water down life or his drink. These keep your cocktail cold without the condensation or dilution of flavor.


6. Aesop Jet Set Travel Kit – My parents like to take little road trips – so what’s better than pint-sized versions of luxury bath products. My mom and I have the full-sized versions, but this is great for a dad who stays on the go for work or fun!


So there you have it – my fav Father’s Day picks of 2017. Here’s to you dads – thanks for everything you do!

Memorial Day



So Memorial Day is upon us and I’m totally stoked for the long weekend. With the move, my parents visiting, and getting settled at work – we haven’t yet had the chance to enjoy our new home and city. This weekend, I’m excited about sitting by the pool with an ice-cold drink, exploring the city, and shooting some new content for you lovely readers! Oh, and some shopping is on my list too. The Georgia heat is real y’all, and I need some new summer essentials!


Just in time for the holiday, I’ve rounded up my latest picks for the weekend and for some Summer fun. New season, new home, new lust list- and everything is coming up rosé!


1. J. Crew One=Piece Scoop Back Swimsuit – The silhouette of this swimsuit stands the test of time. I’ve been so into one-pieces recently, so I love this classic take in a variety of gorgeous hues. Just what we’d come to expect from J.Crew.


2. Wölffer No. 139 Dry Rosé Cider – The crispest and most refreshing cider in the game! I love that it’s actually a rosé, and not to mention the bottle is gorgeous! I actually did a wine tasting with Wolffer at my old ad agency, and visited the vineyard in the Hamptons with Rachel this summer. It’s definitely one of my favorites, and if you haven’t given it a try – then I suggest you grab a bottle…or 3. No judgment.


3. Everything, Everything – Don’t forget to throw a good book in your beach bag this weekend! Everytime I see the preview for the new movie Everything, Everyhing – I get a little misty. I’m not crying; you’re crying! Besides the cutest co-stars (Rue from the Hunger Games, and older brother from Jurassic World), the story about falling for the boy next door, and making the most of life – seems like perfect summer read before it hits the box office.


4. Nannacay Baby Pom-Pom Raffia Straw Tote – The cutest little straw tote with ombré pink poms to make it even more special. I love the shape and size! It’s perfect for throwing in some sunnies, a good book, lip balm, and a yummy coconut water!


5. Chanel UV Essentiel Sunscreen – I can’t say it enough – protect your skin! The older I get, the more concerned I’ve become about treating my skin right. Sunscreen is such an important part of self-care, especially in the Summer! This pick from Chanel is lightweight, not oily, and will keep you looking flawless!


6. Gucci Square Colorblock Sunglasses – I don’t know…I just love these. I feel like they remind me of neopolitan icecream. They might be a little out of the box, but I think they’d be gorgeous with a white jumpsuit or an black sundress. OR just go bold and wear it with some color like a hot pink or bright emerald green. I’m headin to Saks to try these on immediately!


7. Sea Pink Tie-Front Cutout Sundress – Love this color and the peekaboo cutouts.  Plus, give me a bow any day!  I love that it show a flash of skin, without being too much.

Lust List


So this Spring a big trend that has popped um seemingly overnight is that of the neckerchief! It could be a silk scarf, it could be a bandana, it could be a variety of shapes and worn in different ways. Now I’m a huge silk scarf fan, but the ones I have are a bit larger than some on the market recently.


So, I picked up a new silk, square scarf from J.Crew (seen below) and I’ve been tying it as a bandana, as a choker, and even around my purse for a pop of color. The opportunities are endless for ways to tie – and if you’re like me (kinda clueless on how to tie a scarf), then there are some great videos and gifs online giving you step by step instructions!


So I already mentioned that I got the below from J.Crew, but I’ve also rounded up my favorite picks in a variety of colors, shapes and prices.


Have you dolls already hopped on the neckerchief trend this Spring?


1. Ann Taylor Calla Lily Silk (on sale for $29.99!)
2. Club Monaco Sandrella
3. Chanel Silk Twill
4. J.Crew Silk Foulard Print (under $50!)
5. Hermes Balade en Berline
