White Linen Dress in Montauk

Happy Friday! I was in Montauk last weekend checking out the new Gurney’s property with my best friend Talun. We had such a fun trip out east soaking up the sun, strolling through town, and laying on the beach. I ordered this dress right before my trip and was so happy it came in time. It was the perfect piece to wear for an afternoon of shopping in town. I love a white linen midi dress and this one is made of such thick, high quality linen. It feels sturdy and is super flattering around the waist with the tight fitting bodice. A few of you were asking if the price was worth it compared to other less expensive white linen dresses on the market, and my answer is 100% Yes. I’ve owned several white linen dresses over the years, but this one really stands out. It’s not too sheer, fits like a glove, and just feels easy + breezy on – everything a summer dress should be! I just updated my Travel App with my new favorite Hamptons spots. One spot that stuck out in particular from this trip was a new store; The 8th Drifter. It’s this darling boutique (where these pictures were actually taken!) that has tons of bohemian chic home decor and beauty items. Sage, crystals, African tribal headpieces, straw totes, wicker baskets, candles, CBD oils, jewelry and more… It’s always more fun to shop when you’re traveling and I picked up a ton of one-of-a-kind pieces for my Soho apartment. For links to everything I wore in the Hamptons, that don’t always get blogged you can always check my Like To Know It page. This straw bag has been selling like crazy and it’s truly the best market totes I own. I love that it has both short and long handles so you can wear it either way depending on the occasion. And it’s a total steal! Have a great weekend!

Pink Silk Blazer

I just got back from the Hamptons and I feel so refreshed after 2 days at the beach. I’ll be uploading my new favorite spots to my Travel App and links to everything I wore on Liketoknow.it. I packed these fun white lace up heels that I ordered a few weeks ago and wore them with this silk wrap dress from Reformation. I love the way white lace heels look with everything from dresses to jeans and a white T. This outfit has been my go-to look for showroom and PR meetings. This pink blazer is one of the only pink items I own – and I absolutely love it. It’s bright and cheery for spring/summer and looks polished but not overly formal. I also love this pink blazer and this one. This one is a splurge but gorgeous right?! These jeans are from Abercrombie and only $44. They have such a great selection of denim and it’s all insanely affordable. The washes and distressed details are on point. I’ll never tire of denim + a classic blazer together. It’s pretty much my uniform in the city during the week. I wore this white blazer with jeans last week, and this houndstooth blazer with black jeans the week prior.

A White Pencil Skirt

I bought this white pencil skirt a few months ago and it’s quickly become my go-to piece when I need to throw on something for a meeting, formal brunch or event. It’s such a flattering item and can be paired with a button down like I did here, a sweater, a bodysuit, or a flowy silk blouse. I love the subtle button details down the side. It’s sadly sold out, but this one and this one are almost identical and super reasonable. I tied this blue and white stripe button down up to make the look more playful and less corporate. I love a classic button down and tying it at the waist completely changes the vibe. A few other button downs I have my eye on are this one, this one and this one. Rails makes such great button downs. I have a ton of their plaid shirts and always pair them with my Cuyana sweatpants on the weekends. I had the best weekend celebrating my sister at her bridal shower. We rented a room at Cecconi’s in Dumbo and had 20 of her friends and family gather for a beautiful afternoon! The food, service, weather, and decor was IMPECCABLE. I can’t recommend it enough if you’re looking for a new, fun brunch spot – or event space! I’m gearing up for my sister’s bachelorette party next month and getting so excited about all of the activities and goodie bags. I’ll be doing a full blog post on the prep and tips on how to plan one. If you have any games or goodies you recommend I would love to hear them!

Dressed up Jeans and a White T

Blue jeans and a white T. Such a classic, basic, and simple combo that always works. I’ve been resorting back to the staple pieces in my closet since moving back to NYC. It feels so good to get back to basics and not be overthinking my outfits. I’ve been wearing things that are 100% fuss free… I threw on my trusty Mango blazer (they really do make the best blazers) for a lunch meeting at Laduree and these beautiful Sarah Flint heels. Sarah’s shoes are iconic and she designs them with beauty AND function in mind. They have a thick, padded sole and buttery soft leather straps that make walking in them a breeeeeze. ——— On a personal note, I’ve been a little more silent on the blog this week because I’ve had a lot on my plate – both good and bad. The good – and there was a lot of good! – was my housewarming party, book launch party, family + friends coming in town and my sister’s bridal shower. The bad – I found out a friend and confidante who had a really positive impact on my life passed away far too soon. She was only 37 years old. I’m shocked and still fully processing her death. When things like this happen, it just reminds us how short life really is – and how important it is to be as present and grateful as possible. I learned so much from this person and I know she would want me to share some of that insight with the world. When I’m ready, I absolutely will <3
