Fashion Friday: Classic New England Summer Outfits

Last weekend Andrew and I spent a glorious weekend alone at the incredible Wequassett Resort in Chatham on the Cape. Whenever I spend time in the Cape and Islands I am reminded of my love for the classic, preppy-with-a-twist New England way of dressing. It’s so happy and lovely to not see ironic acid washed mom jeans and crop tops everywhere.  I partnered up with Halsbrook, one of my favorite sources for this kind of look, to craft some top to bottom outfits inspired by my Cape weekend- not over the top preppy but rather a comfortable blend of hip and timeless. Think Kate Middleton meets Olivia Palermo.I want ALL of these looks in my closet NOW.

Fashion Friday: 14 Perfect Summer Weekender Bags

Summer is a great time to get away on weekends, and why not do it in style instead of in your fraying circa 1997 Vera Bradley duffle (fun fact- one of these below is a NEW VB bag! She’s back ladies!)

I have two weekenders I love (#7 and #9)- both really sturdy and hold the perfect amount for two nights away or a quick business trip.  Although I am pretty obsessed with the Wes Anderson Darjeeling Limited vibe of #2 ( I was straight up in love with the luggage in the movie).

1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. //10. // 11. // 12. // 13. // 14.

Also as a side note, I found the perfect slip on sandal for summer for $88. They have a very Hermes vibe and come in lots of colors. In love.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Fashion Friday: Tapered Collection Launches Stripes!

Tapered Collection is a locally based, women run business that produces a tee that is truly “anti-muffin top”.  I shared them with you when they launched and you guys apparently loved them because she sold out super fast after the post!  So I wanted to share that they have launched STRIPES in a few new cuts in addition to the classic cap sleeve (tank, mid-sleeve and 3/4 sleeve!)

Fashion Friday: Red Hot!

left / right

Here is Boston it went from 50 degrees and rainy to sunny and 94 degrees in a matter of five days. Apparently, we no longer have spring here #helloglobalwarming.  As we say in Boston, it’s been a SCORCHAHHHH.

So now that I’m pulling out all my summer clothes at a rapid clip, I have found that I am really feeling red this season.  In small doses (stripes) and larger ones too (dresses).  From bold orange-red to a more muted earth tone, I think it’s the color of the summer for 2017.  It pairs so brilliantly with denim and camel/nude tones– and a tan (faux or real). So together with Nordstrom I pulled together a mix of looks using this tone in a few variations from casual to dressy.

I ADORE this top- paired with distressed denim, cool wedges and spunky earrings (and don’t forget the festive clutch) you’ve got the perfect summer evening look.
