handkerchief chic







Dress:  TJ Maxx (similar here and other colors)  |  Hat:  BR (similar here)  |  Bag:  KS  |  Heels:  Nine West - love these  |  Necklace:  Bauble Bar  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

Sorry about my legs here!  I just had some laser hair removal done and she was just dividing up my legs so she didn't hit it twice or miss a spot!  The white also covers up the freckles on my legs too so it doesn't create any skin damage.  I've just completed my 6th session and I'm already noticing a difference on my legs, bikini and not too sure about my underarms - it's tough to see! Ha!  I'll take a break for the rest of the summer as they don't like the skin color to change and not be able to grab the hair follicles.

I love the lightness of this dress.  Perfect for the humid days we've been having and the track (I also wore this to the Belmont)!  It came with a layer underneath, but it's not sheer, so I ended up removing it because if I even moved my arms, you would see the slip underneath.  Not cute.  Definitely a summer staple and great for running errands with a pair of gladiator sandals!  Happy Thursday! :)

pink home - pink heels - pink lips












Shirt:  Gap  |  Pants:  TJ Maxx (similar here and here)  |  Heels:  asos (similar here)  |  Hat:  Everything But Water  |  Clutch:  Cole Haan  |  iPhone case:  Isaac Mizrahi  |  Rings:  1/2  |  Hand Chain:  purchase in the Maldives, but similar here  |  Necklace:  Skaneateles 300 (similar here)  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Ban  

How fun are these pants!?!  I've worn them to the pool, out on the town and just running errands!  They are super comfortable and I love that there's an elastic waistband for some days you're just not feeling your best (especially when the heat has been adding to it).  Printed pants are back!  I remember wearing floral prints in grade school for field trips.  If you haven't gotten your hands on a pair - check out the summer sales going on!

I know I've looped you in to the Nordstrom sale - and it's still going strong!  I decided on two pieces by Halogen - these flats (in Black Dot) and this hat - I can't wait to wear it - it's wool...is it too soon to wear at the track ;)?!?!  Oh and I can't forget this fleece!  I actually tried on/loved several other pieces, but didn't fall in love with them.  What were some of your #NSale finds?

long island rain








Sweater:  Gap  |  Jeans:  Gap  |  Boots:  Hunter  |  Vest:  J. Crew Factory (similar here)  |  Hat:  Everything but Water  |  Bracelets:  1/2/3  |  Watch:  KS  |  Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

I've gotten a lot of use out of my Hunter's this summer.  It's been raining off and on each week!  They've been super useful.  I was sure to bring my wellies out to the Long Island Duck Farm.  It was so fun to get a tour (and drink wine while doing so)!  I learned that to call the ducks, you don't say "peep, peep, peep", you say "bop, bop, bop"!  It's way too funny and cute and I loved holding them.  In order to transition into the fall/winter season, I've also been eyeing these duck boots....

Sunday we had a wonderful afternoon exploring more of Long Island, but the real treat was the gorgeous engagement party for Pierce and Ashley!  I would have taken more pictures but I completely doused myself with a glass full of cider - hey! it was literally my first one - so I was stuck back at the house fixing my error, thus why there aren't any friends and family photos...wahhh!  However, the food was divine (and it kept coming!), the cider was delicious and the company was fabulous!  It truly was wonderful to come together to celebrate Pierce and Ashley!

I just have to go back to the South Fork and eat some LI bagels...oh and more wineries!  Can't wait! ;)

 




This was such a cute way to show and give a favor!  Sweet, simple and something you can keep in your home!


The cider was yummy - I preferred the Ginger Cider!

Nordstrom Sale - last day!

Nordstrom Sale - last day!

Slouch Boots  |  Scarf  |  Fringe Bootie  |  Jacket  |  Cape Shawl  |  Turtleneck  |  Wrap Coat  |  Coat

Alright - tonight is your last night to shop the #NSale before it opens to the public!  Get on it!  I've linked some more super cute picks that are PERFECT for fall!  Did I just say fall, I mean it just became summer here in Saratoga so to already be thinking of chilly weather is crazy!  I will say though I did wear one of my previous picks to the ballet yesterday so I really can't talk - insert emoji stunned face!

Tomorrow I'll loop you in with some of the hair inspiration I have my hair appointment next week! :)

bubbles











Blouse:  French Connection (similar here)  |  Shorts:  J.Crew Factory  |  Sweater:  TJ Maxx (similar here)  |  Hat:  BR  |  Sandals:  Jack Rogers  |  Necklace:  Boutique (similar here)  |  Bag:  RM  |  Rings:  1/2  |  Watch:  KS  |  Bracelets:  1/2/3

I love this poppy blouse (or that's what I consider it)!  It's super fun and flirty, but can go from day, work and night!  I paired this with a shorts instead of denim or white pants...I probably wear sun dresses more than I wear shorts during summer.  I feel as though shorts are tough, the length and fit are always difficult.  I've found that an inch or two longer helps along with going a size up!  That always helps and it doesn't make you ride up in the middle of your legs, plus it's just so much more comfortable.  We're women of different shapes and sizes and the size of our pants/shorts shouldn't be what we feel is supposed to be our size - it should be based on comfort!

I wanted to loop you in to the weekend we spent on LI in one of two posts  We had a great time from seeing the ducks, having oysters on the chilly day before wine touring and then of course celebrating Pierce and Ashley's engagement!  It was my first time out on LI and I can't wait to go back!!!...perhaps next time to the SoFo (don't you love my lingo that I've picked up)?!  I could be a local! ;)  No, but really, we stayed out on the North Fork for the weekend - specifically in Riverhead/Aquebogue.  We had a chill night Friday and the drive in wasn't too bad, I actually may want to ferry out next time so we can relax and enjoy a sunset view!  Saturday we got up and grabbed brunch before heading out to pick up Ashley at work in Greenport!  From there we went out to North Fork Oysters - SO yummy!  Even better with games and a little champs!  From there we headed out to a couple of wineries that were so great - I can't wait to go back!  I loved trying the different kinds of bubbles - it's really crazy that you don't really see LI wines in stores, but yet, you see so many upstate NY wines in different locations.  LI wines were by far way better for sure!  Make sure you plan a winery tour out on LI sometime soon - I'm sure the late summer/early fall is super fun!

I went an got my nails done tonight {I took a leap and have purple nails and pink toes and I don't hate it}!  John made us a yummy dinner!  He paired it with Circa. Rosso - an Italian Toscana blend wine!  I had to look up the blend - it's 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 5% Syrah and 5% Alicante (something I've never heard of before).  Don't worry I only had one small glass and it took me the whole night to drink it!  I'm trying to be good, but I have to bring you Winedown Wednesday posts too right!?!?!  It was extremely cheap (about $8-$9).  We tasted notes of plum and cherry and I caught on to some of the great tannins.  Definitely a great wine to pair with red meats and pasta!

Stay tuned for July!
