The High Waisted And Wide Legged Trouser

May 25th, 2018

Happy Memorial Day weekend guys! I can’t believe it is already here but I’m so grateful for the long weekend and the time it gives me to catch up and reunite with family and friends. Matt is still in Dallas but I was lucky enough to have the luxury of spending the long weekend in Connecticut with my family. I officially arrived home a few days ago and can’t wait to reunite with my extended family for our annual party in Niantic. We love getting together and connecting over great food, water views and taking time to remember and…

A Colorful Gingham Maxi Skirt, In Quepos

May 18th, 2018

Okay, this is it guys, we are heading into our final week of Costa Rica content before we dive deep into New England summer and the color pallet that ensues. Shooting in Costa Rica really motivated me to bring new colors schemes onto this platform and my wardrobe. From teal bathing suits to pink jumpsuits, my suitcase was more colorful than a bag of skittles and for once I embraced it.  The other day I talked about visors and retro-inspired attire and this post is kicking off on the same note. The brand Whit was kind enough to loan…

Texas Bluebonnets

April 13th, 2018

Before heading to Costa Rica with Matt and my family tomorrow, Matt and I decided to play hooky for a day and head on a road trip to see the infamous Texas Bluebonnets. I think I mentioned this in Monday’s work wear post, but recently Matt and I have really been non-stop. I’ve been working extra hours to financially save up for a big upcoming project (hopefully) and Matt’s been busy with March Madness, keeping food in the fridge and my spirits up; as I’ve been checked out due to work.  I’m the definition of a workaholic. I…

The Perfect White Tee

May 18th, 2017

Finding the perfect white tee has taken me 22 years, but it was worth the wait. I’ve tried tees from Nordstroms, Anthropologie, J.Crew, Free People, Hanes; you name it I’ve tried it.

So this year, I decided to try J.Crew Factory’s version of the ‘basic white…

Meeting Monday

May 7th, 2017

J.McLaughlin Dress c/o || Bag || Shoes || Earrings || Lipstick If I learned one thing from college, it was that having a busy and meeting filled Monday really sets the tone for a successful week. Now I was in a sorority in college that had ‘meeting Mondays’ which meant every Monday at 7 pm we met in ‘business casual’ of course.  At first, I hated the idea of business casual especially on a Monday, but then after time, I loved picking out a cute dress and pair of heels come Sunday night. I 100% think dressing up…

Rainy Day Gear

May 1st, 2017

Red Fleece Rain Jacket || Striped Shirt (ON SALE!) || Jeans || Purse (sold out, similar listed) c/o || Earrings || Mules April showers bring May flowers, but I swear all April showers have brought this year are more showers! We are getting some much-needed rain, deep in the heart of Texas, so it’s made me really appreciate my handy-dandy rain jacket!  The other day while I was on Instagram live, a reader asked me what’s my go to spring statement piece, and this year it’s 100% been this yellow rain jacket! Rain or shine, I throw on this jacket because…

Greetings from Maine Tee

April 27th, 2017

Greetings from Maine Tee (ONLY $29.99) || Purse ||  White Jeans || Sunglasses  The other day, Matt & I took a trip down to the Dallas mall when I stumbled upon this greetings from Maine Tee. I was already 75% sure I was going to buy it at first sight, but then I found out it was just $29.99 and I purchased two (oops).  With the weather heating up here in Dallas, my daily outfit has basically revolved around easy to throw on tee-shirts. Now even though I have about 1,000 white and gray tees, I realized my wardrobe really…

Easter Treats at Bird Bakery

April 9th, 2017

Greetings from Aruba! Matt & I have finally landed in Aruba along with my entire family, and I could not be more excited. This is my first time in Aruba so I’m looking forward to a day of exploring, beach reading and snorkeling. As always, I’d love your recommendations, so if you’ve ever been here please message me! Anyway, before heading down to Aruba, to celebrate Easter with my family, Matt and I had a little of our own Easter celebration in Dallas. We went to this unique and charming bakery in Highland Park, Dallas. It’s called the Bird…

Knot Tie Blouse

April 5th, 2017

Exploring historic downtowns will always be my go to weekend activity. When I’m in CT I love driving to different towns and taking in the colonial homes, but with the warmer weather here in Dallas Matt and I have made it a point to walk around the different historical downtowns outside of Dallas.  Most of the historic downtowns are built around 1940 and scream that old fashion soda pop shop, grease lighting, retro vibe. I shared bits and pieces of the historic downtown of Grapevine on Saturday via snapchat and so many of you asked for my outfit of…

6 Basket Bags Under $150

April 3rd, 2017

One trend from last summer that stuck around for 2017 is the basket bag. I’ve always been a huge fan of the classic basket bags, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw designers rolling out more affordable yet still classy basket bag designs for 2017.  To be honest, I own three out of the four options above, and I just ordered number five for an upcoming trip. The best part about these pieces is that they are all extremely affordable, the options above range from $33 – $158 so it’s easy to participate in the trend without breaking…
