Back to Basics

When I’m feeling particularly uninspired to put on a cute outfit, I try to pick one basic piece that I know I love and pair the look with other signature staples. For a day of errands and shopping, I chose this denim jacket, black jeans, and a soft long sleeve tee to create a simple yet polished look. I pulled it all together with simple sandals and a matching purse.

Getaway | New England

I’m no longer abroad, but I’m still on the move! I spent the last few days in my boyfriend’s coastal hometown of Newburyport, Massachusetts. We took a day trip to Maine, relaxed on the beach, and I got my lobster roll fix for the summer. There is something about New England that makes me so happy. I’m so drawn to the quaint towns, gorgeous coasts, and of course, the preppy lifestyle. I cherish each time I get to visit!

Have a great week.

Trends I’m Loving

Fall Favorites (1)

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite spring and summer trends to prepare for a summer clothing haul. I’m definitely loving off-the-shoulder and lace-up tops, subtle stripes, and the obsession with linen and chambray. This seasons’ popular patterns and simple silhouettes go perfectly with peachy pinks, pale blues, and beachy neutrals.
