So this past weekend, my friends from New York came down for a visit to say hello and check out my new home.
 
Every time the three of us get together, it’s the most fun ever, and this weekend was no exception! We ate at the most amazing restaurants, visited the aquarium, watched movies, and of course…went shopping. I got a new dress for Summer (coming soon to the blog) and the girls got an amazing white moto jacket and a Dior scarf, amongst other goodies. And while all of those things were a blast, it was just nice to be with my two best friends who feel like home. It was hard to leave New York and say goodbye, but this trip left me feeling as hopeful as ever that distance won’t separate us. And it was nice to share my new home with them and let them see me move on to a new stage in life. Go figure…it’s like we’re growing up or something!
 
Regardless of what we do together, it’s always a fashion-filled affair. We each have such different styles, so it’s so fun to go shopping and also pick out things we think will suit each other. While we were hitting the shops, I noticed that a lot of the items I gravitated to were the color flame- you know, kind of a poppy red hue. And then I realized that I did the same thing last year. I got this hot red number, and my Tom Ford “Flame” lipstick! Well, sticking with that tradition, I got myself a new Summer dress for 2017 in the same shade. I think the color is flattering on everyone, and the peekaboo cut-out shows some skin, without being too much. The best part? It’s under $60 – can you believe it! I think it’s the perfect dress for the 4th of July, a BBQ, outdoor cocktails, or simply a plain ol’ hot Summer’s day! (For more of my fav picks in this color check out these: Delfi, Donna Morgan,  Zara and Veronica Beard).

Lust List

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

Neckerchiefs

neckerchiefs
 
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?
