Travel Traditions

Every summer, my 3 best friends from college and I take a “friendaversary” trip with a rotating location. It’s one of my favorite weekends of the summer, always filled with bike rides, great seafood, fun cocktails and never-ending laughs. Past trips have included Boston, Narragansett, SF,  and Block Island.  This past Memorial day, we headed up to Nantucket for the Figawi boat race & weekend.  Here are a few shots from the trip including our friendship bracelets from last year’s Block Island trip paired with Nona E Rose braided seersucker friendship bracelets, fun/preppy accessories, and a beautiful view from our bike ride Sconset.


Accessories & Extras Make the Outfit!

I decided to go simple for my Fashion’s Night Out ensemble; (since the weather in NYC has been terribly dreadful this week!) simple black jeans and a silk striped top from J.Crew. To Jazz it up- I threw in this belt from my latest Nona E Rose collection.

And I followed this nail tutorial from cupcakes and cashmere to add a little sparkle.

Belt available at Thistle & Clover


Summertime Splurge

Getting dressed on a 90 degree morning in NYC is usally an excersize in tearing apart my closet to find what’s easy and light while still looking put togetether.  To stay cool and comfortable, my summer signature outfit is consists of  highwaisted shorts, a light cotton top, dressed up with big, bright accessories.  I’m thinking about picking up one of these Elva Fields handmade neckless’s to complement this signature summertime look.

Ad Campaign Adoration

Everytime I see the vintage 1950’s dance inspired ads for Kate Spade’s new fragrance, “Twirl” in the Broadway-Lafayette subway stop, I wish I was the kind of girl who could pull off a gold sequin dress like the model in the ads. Lucky for me, The signature icon to go with the fragrance is gold confetti, featured on the perfume bottle itself as well as a capsule collection of “Twirl” products. I may not be able to pull off the gold sequin dress but I can definitely (try) and pull off the gold sequin pumps or handbag!
