Here are the scoops…
1. Consider ice cream an accessory on hot summer days!
2. T-shirts can be chic too! I love the Kate Spade one featured in this post because it is far from plain and has a fun attitude with the “Queen Bee” message on it. Kate Spade has a ton of cute T-shirts to choose from!
3. Want to change up the look of a T-Shirt? Tie a side knot, that’ll do the trick!
4. Pair your favorite T-shirt with shorts that have details! The faux leather ones in this post add texture while looking feminine with the scalloped hem and cut-out details. Shorts come in all sorts of colors and patterns now, some with embroidered detailing too! Have fun and happy shopping!

There is no better remedy for any ailment than some warm, beautiful sunshine! I am back, for real this time, and ready for a fun, stylish summer! Let’s crank up the heat this summer with vibrant colors and patterns. Summer is a time to let loose and take chances. The dress in this post is one of those pieces that struck me the moment I walked into J. crew. The second I saw it hanging front and center in the store, I knew that there was no chance I would be leaving without it. The pattern is so cheery and the fabric is luxurious, (from Como, Italy). While some people might suggest keeping all other elements in this look neutral since the pattern is loud and a statement maker, I say, “Let’s pack a punch!” Bold accessories, like these Ray-Bans, do just that. Let’s make a pact to be bright, bold, and beautiful together this summer! Cheers to sun and style-filled summer!

In Sickness and In Health

6.15.2016

In sickness and in health my extended and immediate family have been an extraordinary support system, and I would like to thank all of them and you for reading this! One week ago tomorrow, I had surgery to remove my gallbladder. The healing process has, thus far, gone as smoothly as one could hope for. I am very lucky. Lucky to have such a great system of love and support. Without all of the selfless help I have received, I would not be nearly as recovered as I am today. In just a short period of time I will be totally back to being myself again! The video I have posted is a video made by my two little kids, Killian (3), and Nora (9 months). It was beautifully directed by my sister, Bridget! Bridget is also my amazing photographer! 😉I hope this video adds as much brightness to your day as is does to mine!

There is something so clean and perfect about dresses in any shade of white. They have such a soft elegance about them that really appeals to me. I love to wear dresses in ivory hues, especially in the summer months. Since it is currently wedding season, this can cause quite the dilemma. 😊 white cannot be worn to a wedding, unless you are the bride, of course! So, I opt for white dresses that can be worn in a variety of ways and to different occasions. Dresses such as the one in this post can be dressed up for a night out or worn with flats or sandals for an everyday look! The gold Elorie flats accentuate the gold details in my purse perfectly. Meanwhile, the floral cuff adds a pop of color to this outfit while bringing out the same hues in the delicate details of my purse, a match made in heaven! White is flattering on all skin tones and is the perfect “blank canvas” to style an outfit that most speaks to you! Happy wedding season to all of you beautiful brides out there!!
