Summer Sweater

Not all summer days are super hot. Whether it’s on a cool night by the water or just in a freezing cold restaurant, sometimes you need a summer sweater.

My new favorite one is a pullover by the Macbeth Collection that I got while I was in Bay Village in LBI. There is this really cute store called Island Gypsy; If you’re ever down there definitely check it out!

New Glasses

Finding the right pair of glasses can be tricky. They need to compliment your face shape, be the right color, and you have to like them!

I have wanted tortoise shell glasses for a while now, but I couldn’t find any in the right shape for my face. I have a small head so a lot of glasses look too big on me.

I finally found a pair that had the perfect shape, but they didn’t come in tortoise shell. They are kind of a greenish gray color and they actually compliment my skin tone a lot better than the heavy brown and black would have. The best part? My mom made them! She is learning how to be an optician and she cut the lenses and fit them for me at the shop where she works!

Mixing Matches

One thing I love to do with my outfits is to mix patterns that still go together. The trick is to pick a dominant pattern, like a bold stripe or floral, and pair it with a subtle print that compliments it. Here’s my take on it!

What I’m Wearing

This is one of my favorite Lilly Pulitzer skirts that I got at their Endless Summer Sale a couple years ago. It is so colorful and goes with anything!

The shirt is from J. Crew and my watch is from Kate Spade

Beach Haven

Sorry for the lack of posting recently! I got back from the beach and went back to work and lost track of my blog.

I recently spent a week in Beach Haven with my boyfriend’s family. It was a lot of fun.

One of my favorite things was renting bikes. I of course got a pink one with a basket, and funnily enough, Jack got a green one. We’re so preppy.

On one of the first days, we tried to bike all the way to Barnegat Lighthouse, which was about 13 miles away. We made it 5 and then turned around. It was terrible. After that we stuck to biking to Bay Village where we got amazing fudge.

We spent some time at the beach, just hanging out and goofing around. My big Lilly sunhat protected my super pale skin from burning!

What I’m Wearing

The best part about where the house was, was that we were right between the beach and the bay. We spent most nights down at the bay watching the sunset.

Always have to sneak in a Sorority Spirit Jersey pic!

One night, Jack took me out to dinner for a romantic date. It was really nice, though one of my frustrations with the shore is that there are casual restaurants and super duper nice restaurants, but nothing in between! We still had a great time and had some good Italian food at Calabria Ristorante.

Overall, we had a great Vacation and it was so nice spending time with Jack’s family, especially his adorable nephew!

Make a Statement

I don’t usually wear a lot of jewelry so if there’s one thing I love it’s a statement piece. One really great looking piece is, in my opinion, much more elegant and eye-catching than loading on a ton of bling.

I had been looking at a particular necklace from BaubleBar for-EVER, but I wasn’t sure if it was worth it’s original price. I found it the other day for only $17 so I had to get it! Unfortunately since it was on sale, it is no longer on the website but you can find similar necklaces at other stores.

This was my first Bauble Bar purchase (even though I’ve wanted everything on the site for a while!) so they sent my bauble in really cute packaging with a handwritten note!

They even included a free gift, Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish in Dive In.

I paired this necklace with a neutral outfit so it wouldn’t be overwhelming.

I also love statement earrings! Most of the time I just wear them on their own, especially if they are as big as the ones I received as a free gift from Lilly Pulitzer.

I haven’t worn these out yet because they are definitely a statement, and they’re a little heavy so I wouldn’t want to wear them for too long. Hopefully my boyfriend will take me to a nice dinner soon 🙂

Sorry for all the selfies, the worst part of being a fashion blogger is when no one is around to take your picture!

 

Beach Babes

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately, I started working again and have been settling into my new house!

This coming week I will be heading to Beach Haven with my boyfriend’s family so I thought I would do a post on three different beach looks. It is so easy to have a different feel or style depending on your suit and the accessories you use!

The Girly Girl

Think pink with this bright suit, a fun sun hat, and a summer read!
