ToolsHarry Josh Pro Blow Dryer: The first time I heard about this blow dryer, I was on the set of a shoot and got into a long conversation with the hair and makeup girl, Kristy. As I always do, I curiously asked about her “holy grail”tools and products…

When I pulled this strapless dress on, it instantly called for a chunky statement necklace. This orb adorned (almost choker-like) necklace was key. It kind of reminds me of Wilma Flinstone. I love it! What do you think of my outfit today? 🙂

Dress: ASOS | Shoes: Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ | Handbag: Valentino | Sunglasses: Celine ‘Caty’ | Lipstick: MAC Pink Nouveau
With a couple of summer weddings ahead of me, I was on the lookout for a dress that was: a) feminine b) whimsical and c) lightweight. Needless to say, when I found this one, I was pretty thrilled! I wanted to keep everything else fairly tonal, so I paired it with my trusty nude pumps and my blush colored bag to complete the look. Done and done!

Staycation

Button Down: H&M | Shorts: ? | Tote: kate spade new york c/o | Sandals: Pedro Garcia | Hat: J Crew | Watch: Caravelle New York
 This past weekend, Keith and I stayed back in the city, with a little day escape to my old hood, Rockaway Beach. My father still lives there (my mother recently moved to Brooklyn), so when we go, we pile ourselves and our two dogs into the car and spend the day BBQing and relaxing near the ocean. It’s close by, but seriously feels like a mini vacation. As much as hopping on a plane for a real vacation is preferred, since that can’t always happen, we try to get creative with monthly staycations.
For my outfit: an easy white button down (as always), light weight shorts and my roomy kate spade new york Francis tote, which will definitely serve as my summer “it” bag this year. Being that I leave my house for the entire day, I always pack some essentials:
Staycation Essentials: 
*Large beach towel, typically something bright and cheery.
*My favorite Panama Hat: gotta prevent premature aging as much as I can! Something I’m even more crazy about now that I’m in my 30’s.
*Magazines: gave my fashion magazines a little break and opted for an issue of Clean Eating. Trying to get inspired with some summer recipes, incorporating as much fresh fish and veggies as we can. Since we’re now able to grill outside, it makes it so much easier to eat clean. If you guys have some favorite recipes, please share!
*Flip Flops: The few times I’ve worn flip flops around the city, I’ve come home with some dirty feet (gross, I know), so I really prefer not to. When I’m heading out to the beach, I’ll usually wear sandals and bring my favorite flip flops with me.
And of course, plenty of sunblock, headphones and some lip balm with SPF in it.
Lastly, for something a little more glamorous than a staycation, kate spade new york is giving away a dream vacation to Rio.  
*the Francis tote is exclusive to the kate spade new york store at 17 newtown in East Hampton, NY, but you can also get it online here.
