Yellow Eyelet Swing Dress

Earlier this summer we talked about my favorite eyelet pieces and this one was definitely at the top of 25 pieces listed. Over a month later my love for this bright pop of sunshine is still going strong. I don't know if it's the easy to wear swing shape or the vibrant lemon hue but it is giving me all sorts of sunshine on this rainy day. I love it with these Sorel sandals but it looks equally as amazing with sneakers and ankle strap heels...

Kimono + Light Denim

One of my favorite things about spring and summer in the NYC is the blooms spread throughout the city. Initially you wouldn't think that New York had very many trees, plants and flowers but after looking past the skyscrapers one finds tons of fruiting plants and gardens throughout the neighborhoods. My neighborhood in particular has everything from figs to apricots to apple and cherry trees. For me, I find it fascinating to be in such an urban environment with so much surrounding nature. I love it.  Of course there's tons of flowering trees and plants along the sidewalks making for the perfect backdrop for summer styles. This particular tree had me swooning with it's lush white blooms that matched the flowers on my kimono to a T. 

Off The Shoulder Striped Midi

Sometimes you need something extra colorful to get you through the week. I personally love the oversized fit on this off the shoulder WWW striped dress. You saw me wear it with red sandals here with Jackie but I have to say I am loving them with sneakers. It's the perfect outfit for trucking around the city with the boys...

Outdoor Summer Essentials: AVON’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard Collection

This post is sponsored by AVON. All opinions are my own.
During the summer months, I think it's safe to say we spend most of our time outdoors. With that being said, I am so excited to be teaming up with AVON because their Skin So Soft Bug Guard Collection has me covered for anything and everything. If we're not on a picnic blanket in one of the city's amazing parks we're either at the beach, riding the ferry or hitting an outdoor movie after sunset.

Off-The-Shoulder Floral Maxi Dress

It's no secret that I'm a gal about maxi dresses during the spring and summer months. I mean, it's obvious. What you also know is that I'm all for re-wearing pieces (to-death). This particular dress is from last summer and I'm still as big of a fan of it as I was when it first arrived. This time I'm wearing it woven slides, a straw bag and a fresh gloss from Madison Reed. Summer perfection for Maxi Monday!

Miami Swim Week Photo Diary

And just like that I'm back to real life after a whirlwind trip to Miami with Swimusa. If you followed along via stories, you watched as Lara and I took over the Swimusa Instagram account for an extended weekend at Miami Swim Week. 

What better way to document our weekend adventure to Miami than with an instant camera. 

Family Friendly Destination: Anna Maria Island

A couple of weeks ago you followed along as I took over the gulf coast for a few days of sun, sea and sand- I've never gone home feeling so refreshed. It was exactly what I needed and could not have asked for a better experience on Anna Maria Island.
