SILK ON SILK

TGIF! I feel like I say this a lot, but let's get serious, who doesn't look forward to the weekends? I have been traveling a bunch this summer, and as much as I love escaping town I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend in the city. Long walks, lobster rolls and laundry...lots and lots of laundry, are all on the agenda. Not exciting to most, but I am truthfully looking forward to getting our apartment back in one piece and finally unpacking that revolving suitcase. 

This loose fitting Tori Blouse from ellelauri has all the right details for an easy summer night look. I decided to pair silk on silk and added a bit of flare with a statement necklace that pulls in the color of my blouse. Have an amazing everyone!

TRIBAL MAXI

I have to say, DejaVu did it again! You all might remember this little neon number I wore in this post, well here is another must-have maxi dress from their shop. The tribal inspired print sucked me in, and the slit up the skirt allows for extra movement when walking around. I kept things simple for a day of brunching and shopping with a leather backpack and summer sandals. The light weight fabric has been perfect for these hot summer days!

WEDNESDAY WISH LIST (NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE)

So I ventured out in cyber space to scour the online racks of Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. I feel like I can speak for all of us, when I say I that my excitement for this sale rivals a child's excitement on Christmas Eve. I usually set out with a game plan so my credit card bill isn't too cringe worthy, and I try and shop for items that would work year round and are versatile. I am happy to report back that my findings were even better than expected. I have separated my favorite picks into categories to make it easy to look through and click to shop. Don't forget the sale ends August 4th and Nordstrom's is always free shipping, so, if you are like me, give your arms a rest, and load up on your Nordstrom favorites in your virtual shopping bags!

THE KENNA DRESS

There is something about the feel of a well made satin textured dress that I absolutely love. I was enamored by the high necklace and floral print of this Cynthia Steffe Kenna dress.  I wore this dress to dinner on the roof of Eataly, where we enjoyed great food, delicious drinks, and watching the sun set. I also can't get enough of these shoes that are the perfect cross between a wedge and heel, making them practical for walking all around (and not yearning for flats by the end of the night). You have probably seen me sport them in multiple posts and they are for sure my favorite summer shoe! If you are looking to dress this outfit down for an occasion I would suggest pairing it with this or this sandal ( both on sale!!) and this bucket bag.

FARMERS MARKET

I know that I have been talking up NYC a lot lately, but it truly has so much to offer. A couple years ago I lived right near the Farmers Market in Union Square, and even though I am a bit further uptown now I still try and make it a weekend priority. Shopping local is something I support wholeheartedly, and I also like to know where the food I am putting in my body comes from. This past winter I took the most incredible cooking class that was farm(ers market) to table, where we didn't select our menu until we saw what was at the market that day -- it was really a great experience that I highly recommend! By shopping at these local markets you get to build relationships with the vendors and support their small business in a way that makes everyone feel good. I always try and bring a tote bag along with me so I don't have to waste plastic bags, and the Graf & Lantz tote is adorable, colorful and the perfect size! My embellished maxi is from Sail to Sable -- a Connecticut based brand with adorable and high-quality preppy tunics, maxis, and dresses. Make sure to check them out and have a great weekend!
