Hope you all had an enjoyable summer and here's to making the rest of the year even better yet. Have a great long weekend!

Jeans & Tank

Old Tank - Unknown | J Brand Jeans (over half off!) | Lucky Brand Wedges

Jeans (on major sale here) & an old tank...digging deep in the closet to close out summer as I anxiously wait to start shopping for fall.

End of Summer Shift

Urban Outfitters Dress (on sale!) | H&M Jean Vest | Zara Bag | Aldo Shoes

Picked this dress up when Urban was having their 30% off sale items sale. It's still on sale in stores for $19.99 but also online here. Overall a perfectly lightweight, airy summer dress that I can see working next spring under a jean jacket as well.

Weekend Update - 8/27/2012

{an iced coffee to cool off on a muggy Saturday}
This weekend consisted of packing and packing some more....then when I was done with that I finished packing. Literally took me like two days. That is not normal. Anywho, I'm off to Europe for the next two weeks but have scheduled posts until my return September 10th. Ciao!

White on White

H&M Peplum Top (similar here) | Zara (sale) Shorts & Booties

Just one more (similar here) in a series of H&M peplum tops that I own (see: here, here, here and here). This is really beginning to be a problem. Paired this white little number with a pair of Zara sale shorts and booties, which I'm proud to say were each under $20.

Help Wanted: Europe Recommendations

Aix-en-Provence, France
Soooo, I leave Sunday for Europe for two weeks. And in my typical procrastination fashion, have little planned outside of logistics and lodging. That's where you come in: unique/locals restaurants, cute shops, things to see and things to skip, etc. for the cities listed below. Ready, set, go!

  • France: Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, Beaune, Lyon, Paris
  • Italy: Milan and Stresa 
  • Switzerland: Geneva and potentially Chamonix/Mont Blanc (yes, I realize this is technically in France)

Avignon, France

Beaune, France

Lyon, France
Paris, France

Geneva, Switzerland

Milan, Italy

Suit Slash Shirt

Vintage One Piece (Beacon's Closet) | H&M Maxi & Sunnies | Forever 21 Sandals

At $10, this vintage one piece may have been one of the best buys of the summer. On the beach, to the works on its own as a swim suit to lay out, with jorts during the day or paired a black maxi to transition into night. A prime example of an easily adaptable NY outfit. What are some of your favorite day-to-night outfit tricks?

Weekend Update - 8/20/2012

{Channing Daughters grapes soaking up the summer rain}
Out in the Hamptons for what was my last summer weekend this year. The weather was less than ideal but it did allow for a change up from the normal BBQ/beach routine to try some new restaurants (Estia's Little Kitchen, Ruschmeyers, B. Smith's) and wine tasting at Channing Daughters. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Burning Torch

Gifted Burning Torch Dress | Forever 21 Bag | Burberry Watch | Essie Blanc Nails | Sam Edelman Boots

Perhaps the best summer maxi I own, this dress has treated me well the past couple months for al fresco dinners, concerts in the park and rooftop drinks alike. So comfortable I could sleep in it and have more than once, in fact. Paired here with another summer staple...these Sam Edelman booties that you're probably sick of hearing about by now.
