Oh hey there weekend, great to see you again. I hate that summer is coming to an end, it feels like just yesterday that I was kicking off the summer with an amazing weekend in Nantucket filled with good times and great friends. I’ll be rounding out the weekend with a floral class at Red, Rose & Lavender , a facial at HeyDay facial spa, a day at the beach and a few little rooftop ...

Impossibly Delicious Cocktail: The Cucumber Vodka Mojito

  I refuse to admit that summer is winding down, hence a last minute beach trip coming up this weekend and a much need day on the lake happening in a few weeks. Clearly extending summer as long as possible over here is a top priority! Not only with trips but I’ve also been getting creative with my cocktail shaker. I was recently introduced to Austin Cocktails {snag them here!} by a few fellow Texas ladies and ...

Pops of Pink

During summer's crazy hot August days I find that on the weekends I am usually rotating out cut offs and a tee, an easy dress or romper, they're my "it's 110 outside I can't deal" ensembles.  But regular rotation of my faves gets mundane so I recently found myself gravitating towards matching sets, they're cute and let's be honest here ... they are so easy to toss on for a brunch date after barre! This embroidered ...

In just a snap of a finger I feel as though summer has flown by! Sure it helps that the weather has been nothing short of spectacular as of late here in NYC, which means I’ve been getting in ample outdoor time (yay!) with friends. Summer in NYC is wonderful because it means outdoor movies, mini golf on the pier, rooftop shindigs, cocktails on boats and lots of park time. What can I say? I ...

The II Travel Diaries: Getting My Ride On in Miami

Rounding out this week's II travel series (make sure to check out post #1 and post #2!) on Miami is a brief recap of our fun bike ride excursion around Miami and the little places you must stop by. Luckily for us the Raleigh Hotel stocks ridiculously adorable bikes (similar to this one or this one!) so we snagged them for the morning and took off to explore the boardwalk area. We found ourselves at Jugofresh for morning juices, then ...

II Travel Diary: Miami

Since moving to New York, my mom and I take an annual beach trip during the summer so that we can get in a bit of quality R&R. This year instead of heading to Puerto Rico or down to the BVIs as we’ve done the past couple of years we choose to meet in Miami. Truth be told, this year’s trip was also a last minute adventure thanks to crazed schedules so we had to ...

A quintessential summer dress

I have more clothes than I know what to do with but when it comes to vacation wardrobe, I always have to treat myself to one (or maybe two) new pieces. I’m particularly fond of For Love & Lemons (see this post), their dresses are pretty much the quintessential summer dress ideal for a beach vacation, which let’s be honest … I’m all about anytime of the year. So what’s my requirement for the perfect vacation dress? ...
