A Flowy Summer Skirt

Happy Monday! How is it already August? Summer is flying by and I am so excited for all of the travels I have planned this month. I’m heading to LA this week to be on one of my favorite podcasts; Philadelphia the following week to speak at a conference, and then finally Rome + Capri for a week of fun in the sun with my love. I’ve been trying SO hard to only bring carry-on bags with me because I hate waiting for my luggage after I land and trekking with a bunch of stuff. Surprisingly, I’ve gotten way better at narrowing down what I pack so I think I’m going to write a whole post on what tips/trick/essentials I’ve adapted along the way. This summer skirt is IDEAL to travel with. It’s soooo lightweight and the material doesn’t wrinkle! It’s also really versatile so you can pair it with a body suit, crop top, button down, leather jacket, silk blouse, camisole. Tons of options! I plan on packing it with me to both LA and Italy because it can be worn during the day and at night styled with different accessories. Other flowy midi skirts I’m loving right now are:This floral printed one from Reformation, vibrant pink skirt, and this classy navy polka dot skirt. I’d pair any of them with this darling white lace camisole, or this romantic crop blouse. Also check out this skirt comination from Miami.

Sundress in Little Italy

Hiiii! Sorry for the lack of posts this week! I just got back from a beautiful trip to Santa Barbara with Belmond and am finally getting back to the swing of things. Carly and I shot a ton of amazing photos around the property and in Montecito that I can’t wait to share! The second I landed back in the city, I was craving Rubirosa pizza. If you’re not familiar with Rubirosa – then you must try it when you’re in the area! This is one of my favorite pizza spots in NYC, and it’s located in the heart of Nolita. The crust is thin, they offer gluten free options. In addition, they have this one pizza called the Tie Dye which is SO YUMMY! The wait is always pretty long, and the restaurant is small, so I typically order 2 large pizzas and a salad, and take them home to enjoy with friends. I wore this little floral Reformation number on my way to Rubirosa. It’s the perfect daytime or date night sundress. I love the way it cinches just below the bust, and the subtle pattern. Reformation has their own website, but they’re also carried on Nordstrom, Net-a-Porter and now Shopbop! In terms of sizing with this dress, and most Reformation dresses, I typically like to size up. They do tend to run tight around the ribcage/waist. A few Reformation dresses I’m loving at the moment are:This one (I have it in the printed floral pattern), this one, this one, and this one (so sexy AND so reasonable.) This one is at the top of my wishlist, and this one is such a gorgeous, refreshing shade of blue. I always get a ton of questions about the beige sunglasses I wear, and believe it or not they were $15 from a random Venice Beach boardwalk stand. I found this pair which are similar and have a great, oversized shape! Honestly, I love cheap sunglasses (they just fit me better!) and I’ve found that BP + Quay makes some of my faves.

A White Midi Skirt

Happy Friday! This week flew by and I can’t believe it’s already mid July!!! I’m heading to Santa Barbara tomorrow with Belmond Hotels for a little wine tasting + polo tournament. I’m really excited for a change of scenery! I’ll be packing this outfit for the wine tasting. It’s another easy + breezy summer look that’s become my “uniform” for summer. I love the faint pink + white stripe pattern on this Something Navy shirt from Nordstrom. It’s an oversized/long fit so it looks great as a pool/beach coverup, tucked into jeans, or worn tied up at the waist. I would size down in this shirt for sure. I’m wearing a small here, but definitely could have comfortably fit into an XS. This shirt also comes in blue + white which is equally as cute! A White Midi Skirt I paired the soft button down with this white midi skirt which is soooo lightweight and moves beautifully when you walk. I ordered a Medium because I usually love a looser fit with my casual skirts, but to be honest, I should have gotten a Small! It runs true to size, but if you’re in between sizes – I would say size down, especially if you’re on the shorter side. To give you reference, I’m almost 5’7″ and I usually wear a size 2 or 4. This skirt also comes in a fun polka dot and black floral pattern. Other midi skirts I am LOVING from Nordstrom are this cream slip skirt, this orange and white polka dot skirt, this navy and white pinstripe pencil skirt. (So chic for fall!). This linen skirt, and this black + white floral skirt. Midi skirts can be paired with button downs, off the shoulder blouses, simple Ts, bodysuits – you name it. They look gorgeous for day or night, and can even be worn throughout the fall + winter with boots and leather jackets! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally OPEN to the public, and it is absolutely worth shopping. A few things that I am coveting are; these distressed jeans, this long cardigan, this cute plaid boyfriend shirt, this simple chambray, this houndstooth blazer, this cargo jacket, this cozy V neck sweater, this pretty white blouse, these plaid trousers, and this easy linen jumpsuit. Be sure to shop the rest of my picks below! Enjoy your weekend!

Summer Style on Bleecker

I have been soaking up every second of this gorgeous summer weather! It’s been in the 80s all week in NYC and I’ve been out and about, wearing all of my light summer pieces. I picked up this black silk skirt in Montauk the other weekend at the Bluestone Lane Collective boutique – and I love the way it drapes. It’s from a small Aussie designer and also comes in white. This skirt is super similar and only $78. I paired the slip skirt with a soft white button down from Abercrombie and tied it at the waist. This tied up blouse + skirt combo has become my go-to summer look and is perfect to throw on if I don’t know what to wear! Abercrombie has the best button downs if you’re looking for a few new ones to spruce up your wardrobe! These lace up sandals are a few seasons old from Club Monaco. They carry this pair online now, and then this Madewell pair is super similar. I own them in the darker brown color and can attest they’re great quality/comfortable to walk for long periods of time in. I was strolling along Bleecker Street in the West Village the other day and was so excited to see that The Daily Edited opened a shop there now! Honestly, I love their leather luggage, cosmetic cases and iPhone cases. I picked up this cute monogram iPhone case at the boutique and it was ready in 15 minutes. You can customize the font and colors – so fun right?!
