Last week was my first blogcation and although I missed writing, it was well worth the little time off. My best friend, D, and I went on an East Coast trip. Originally, we wanted to do a road trip along the coast, but then we remembered that we drove 12 straight hours to D.C. a couple of years ago and as mature adults, we automatically vetoed road-tripping this beach inspired trip.
We started in New York and then made our way to Cape Cod with trips to Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and finishing off in Boston. I believe we took every mode of transportation as well, but it was definitely worth it with views like this lighthouse in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard. Martha’s Vineyard was serene and very picturesque, don’t mind all the lighthouse photos – I was feeling inspired and the lighting and colors were great. (And maybe I was pretending that I was summering in Greece being seaside, but shhh…)
P.S. isn’t D getting so much better at taking my blog photos?!

I’m already gearing up for the 4th of July this upcoming weekend by channeling Ms. July in this playful printed stars pocket dress. Nothing says America like red, white and blue especially sitting on a Chicago Fire Department truck. Besides holiday fashion, I’m really looking forward to a bbq this weekend and some quality time with the sun and even possibly watching fireworks at the park. What are you plans for the holiday weekend?

Happy Summer (officially)! For a Monday I’m feeling pretty fresh on the blog. There’s so much to catch up on as well like the amazing trip to New York City this past weekend, so bare with me with the upcoming posts that all are related to NYC. It was such a fun (blogger) trip with Jill and I feel as though I’ve been rejuvenated and inspiration has definitely already kicked in. I’m not even sure where to begin with all the people and events, let alone all the fashion that made this trip amazing.
It had been a couple of years since my last visit to The Big Apple, but this one goes down in the books. First of all, it was amazing because I saw my brother who lives in Brooklyn. I hadn’t seen him since the holidays and I loved hanging out with him. He’s seriously the best brother I could ever ask for! AND a million thank yous aren’t even enough for everything he did for me and my friend. I can’t wait to see him again.
Onto this look… White screams summer and I couldn’t help myself when I saw this fit & flare stripe strappy dress before I left. It was the perfect weight and style for a day exploring Brooklyn’s coffee shops and boutiques along with a stroll through Transmitter Park (more photos to come). For summer looks I like to keep the look simple and focus in on details. The subtle lines and fit make this dress a summer staple and can go from day to night. I can still feel the sunshine on my skin that clear crisp day while just roaming around the city soaking in everything.
Stay tuned this week for more from NYC and see a sneak peak through Instagram!
