{summer sundress + sunglasses}

This summer has been all about the cute sundresses for me - they're so easy to style and pack!

I've been on a huge Amazon Fashion kick recently - you can't beat the prices and two day shipping! When I was packing for the Hamptons a couple of weekends ago I knew throwing sundresses into my suitcase was going to be the easiest thing. I had ordered this dress last minute (god bless prime) for my trip to Key West but we ended up not going out Saturday night so I didn't wear it. I loved the faux wrap dress look and the pom-poms are what sold me. Detailing on a dress always makes my heart happy!

I ordered a Medium in this and would recommend anyone with a bigger chest to go up to a Large. There's no stretch in the waist or top because it zips up the back. The bow wraps around the back to tie at the front so the front ruffle will always stay in place! It was really wrinkled when it arrived in the mail but the fabric steamed up quickly and easily and didn't crease badly when I wore it during the day (this is the steamer I swear by and travel everywhere with)! The length was perfect so when I sat down I didn't feel like it was riding up too!

Now I'm thinking I need to get it in other colors ;) haha I feel like I always say that when I love a dress!

Love Always,

{summer sun in the hamptons}

Last weekend I was in the Hamptons with 3 of my NYC gals - this was the second trip we made there together! Allie was our gracious host and per usual, we had a lot of laughs, photos, and wine :) [and Aperol Spritzes thanks to Dana]

It rained all Saturday but we still explored Montauk and East Hampton during the day and then had a gorgeous sunset during dinner! When we woke up Sunday morning there wasn't a cloud in the sky (phew) so we sat out by the pool and soaked up as much as we could.

When I was packing for the weekend I wanted to try a fun look that's great for the beach, pool, or night out on the water. I've worn this scarf when it was colder out (see here) and was really excited to try and style it a new way. All I did was fold it into a triangle and then tie the two corners in a double knot in the front. Even though it's showing my stomach I liked how the tie in the front is long enough to cover more skin. It allowed a lot of breeze to get through while still keeping me feeling a bit more covered up. It was the perfect pool look when paired with white pants! I picked these up at South Moon Under recently and fell in love right away. The material was lightweight and didn't stick to my legs. I actually wore them on the train ride home and felt like I was wearing sweatpants haha! I'm really excited to dress these up and down a bit more this summer. I think they could look great with heels and a navy linen blazer!

Love Always,

{4 steps to a summer outfit}

There's nothing better than a fool proof summer time outfit! Something you can toss in a bag and take a last minute trip to the beach with.

First things first, a really cute pair of shorts that you feel confident in will last you for summers to come. I found this scalloped pair earlier this summer and have worn them countless times (I flew home from Key West in them)! They're marked down to $25 right now too!

After you have your "wear everywhere shorts" you can pretty much pair them with any top in your closet. My favorites are bright colored, loose, and flowy. It's been really humid this summer so a top that doesn't stick to your back is key.

Then you have to add some fun earrings - duh! It instantly dresses up an outfit and (in my opinion) can take it from day to night quickly. It's also a great way to color contrast and add movement to a look.

The icing on any outfit is the shoes. I love these sandals because they're super comfortable and the detailing is perfectly simple yet classy. I've worn these for over a year now and they've stayed in perfect condition.

Those are my 4 steps to a summer outfit: crisp shorts, a bright and flowy top, fun earrings, and fancy sandals. What makes up your favorite outfits?

Love Always,

{olive green amazon prime dress}

You aren't going to believe the price of this adorable dress!

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I've fallen in love with shopping on Amazon Prime! Finding outfits for work and for play has become a new hobby ;) The prices are amazing and I've actually been able to find some really quality pieces - I'll do a review of everything I've loved and purchased soon. This dress quickly became a go-to because of the color (my favorite) and the fact that the material looks like linen but doesn't wrinkle like linen does! These photos were taken at the end of my work day - I had been sitting at my computer for hours.

I styled it for work with heels and some fun earrings then grabbed my purse and sunglasses to meet the girls for wine and burgers! Throw your hair up and put on sandals and it's the perfect little weekend number. Aren't dresses that you can wear multiple ways the best?!

Have you jumped on the Amazon fashion train yet?!

Love Always,
