If you guys follow along with me on Instagram (which I hope you do!) then you might have seen that I celebrated my 29th birthday recently! My idea of celebrating was taking my annual trip to the Hamptons to spend time with my best friends. This year was a little different not living in New York, so we spent a couple days in the city catching up with old co-workers, friends, and visiting some of our favorite New York restaurants.  I have to be honest – it was the first time I passed our old home since we moved and it made me a little emotional.  But, I’m happy to say that I feel lucky to still have a connection to the city and the ability to visit friends often.

 

One of the big differences from New York to Atlanta – summer in the city! While the heat down South is brutal, you often don’t feel it going from an air conditioned building straight to a car.  That’s not the case in New York where you wander the streets and can really feel the heat (don’t even get me started on the subway).

 

On a morning where we strolled through the West Village and then headed to Soho House, I felt a short, white sundress was perfect for the occasion and the best way to beat the heat! I love the colorful and cute embroidered design, but what I really loved was the price! Can you believe this dress is less than $25? I finished my look with my go-to Summer hat and summery espadrilles that also happen to be on sale.  Make sure to check the links below for details!

Floral dresses are something that I always wish I had more of when warm weather rolls around. But it can sometimes be difficult finding a silhouette that works and also a color scheme that isn’t too sweet.

 

This dress by Free People was the perfect combination of dusty rose florals and a deep v-neckline. I love the midi-length with a bit of volume, and don’t get me started on the low-cut back with smock and button details. I wore this dress on a windy day in the Hamptons before we strolled through town for some lunch and Aperol Spritzes.  Another great think about this dress? It’s on sale!  I finished my look with some nude espadrilles to keep the look summery. Although it’ perfect for this season, I can’t wait to transition this to Fall with a leather jacket!

Some dresses just speak to you…and this one had my name all over it. I love to wear white in the Summer and I felt the ethereal dress was so different than anything else I had in my closet.

 

Maxi dresses are easy to throw on, look put together, and are easy-breezy in the Summer heat. With this dramatic square neckline, voluminous sleeves, fine eyelet detail – the dress looks straight out of a fairy tale. Also with ties around the waist and sleeves than can be pushed down off the shoulder – I feel I can switch up how I wear it for a different effect.

 

As soon as I got the dress, I knew it would be prime for a Summer evening out in the Hamptons. I felt the look was perfect for a night at Wölffer vineyard with my girlfriends, sipping rosé and enjoying the sunset. What a dream.
