Easy Summer Outfit

Summer in NYC is HOT and HUMID. You step outside and are pretty much drenched in sweat 15 minutes later lol. So the key for getting dressed in the summer is finding LIGHT pieces that are breathable and relaxed. This is my go-to easy summer outfit.You’ll never believe that this skirt is under $30! Yes! H&M has the cutest stuff from apparel to home goods – and I am particularly loving their skirt selection this season. You know I love a midi length anything, and they have a zillion midi length skirts that flatter any silhouette. The skirt I’m wearing also comes in a red floral pattern. I currently have my eye on this simple black cotton skirt! It’s soooo airy, lightweight and looks cute for running errands, a casual dinner date, brunch with the girls, or shopping. I love tying a simple white button down at the waist with a skirt like this. Your waist instantly gets cinched and it’s a more playful take on a classic button down. Abercrombie is another brand that has really been stepping up their game and has a ton of affordable, well made, summery pieces. For accessories, I brought out my favorite leather bucket bag from Mansur Gavriel that I’ve had for years. I also have it in the tan leather and have worn it to death. They’re such quality bags and will be in style for years to come. I’ve gotten a lot of questions asking if these Hermes Oran sandals are worth it – and in my opinion, yes they are. They’re another quality staple piece that I’ve worn into the ground and that have really held up. They’re timeless and soooo comfortable. Head to my Summer outfits section to get more outfit inspo for the season!

July 4th Style

I’m heading to Nantucket this weekend and Connecticut next week for July 4th and wanted to share a few things I’ll be packing! For Dresses… Of course they are both from Reformation ;) I just bought this red floral dress and am OBSESSED with the color and pattern. I now have my eye on this dainty printed blue dress. And For Shoes… I love these Madewell lace up sandals. They’re affordable and have held up season after season for me. They come in 3 different color ways. Since Nantucket is so casual, I don’t want to bring stilettos, so I’m packing these block sandals from Sole Society. Next, For The Beach… I’m bringing my favorite AGolde denim cut offs, this leopard bikini (also love the pattern and cut of this one), and these aviator sunglasses. I also love this beach tote which just went on sale. I just ordered the perfect coverup/kimono for the beach followed by a late lunch. Finally, For Accessories… How gorgeous are these earrings? Don’t they look way more expensive than they are?! You can’t go wrong with this Julie Vos long gold coin pendant, and this Rag + Bone straw hat which just went on sale here. I can’t forget my go-to Staud net mesh bag which comes everywhere with me in the summer. It works for day or night, and holds a ton without looking bulky/big. Shop more of my July 4th style must-haves below – Like this red nail polish, this scarf top, this bandana, and this scallop bikini.

Earn It

I’m so honored and humbled to share that I’m in a best selling book called; Earn It! This book is a straight talking guide for young women in the workplace trying to navigate landing a job. It goes into the new world of work, building a personal brand, and getting the recognition and salary you deserve. It’s written by MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and her producer Daniela Pierre-Bravo. Earn It is packed with helpful tips and inspiring stories from female entrepreneurs. People like Tory Burch, Martha Stewart, Sarah Jessica Parker and yours truly! My Career TipsI loved sharing my personal story about how I went from being a college student and nanny with student loans to writing my blog and working full time in NYC. And then eventually turning my site into a thriving business. I’m so proud of my journey and evolution, and was thrilled to share it. I hope you pick up a copy of the book and learn something from it – I know I did! It’s jam packed with incredible stories and advice from women I’ve admired for years. I wrote a Career Advice blog post a few months ago that I highly recommend referencing. Especially you’re feeling stuck or wanting a change in the workplace. Starting a business and/or switching jobs certainly isn’t a walk in the park. But I always say “Where there’s a will there’s a way”. You Can Truly Do Anything You Put Your Mind ToI think the biggest thing to take away from my story is that you absolutely do not have to start with a huge savings account/cushion or tons of connections to break into an industry and thrive. Perseverance, authenticity, passion, and a willingness to take on any task no matter how big or small are just a few of the qualities that helped me get where I am today. I’d love to hear what industry you’re in and what other career tips you’d love to see on here as it’s been such a popular topic on the site!
