melon burst

The weather the past few days has been simply miraculous! The cooler temps have been divine and brought me back to some "spring" color inspirations. As our dinners have been filled with honeydews, watermelons and fruits galore....I was inspired by the color scheme AND the wonderful weather to create a summer does spring look. 
Look polished for work and beyond, take a spin at an upcoming wedding, or stun the crowd at mass (you totally deserve brunch after), needless to say, this outfit has all the bases covered. 
Hope you have a fabulous day, toodles!

PS-totally just treated myself to the repettos featured below (joys of working at a boutique!)

A Summer Home in the Hamptons

I came across this feature in Veranda Magazine (one of my favorites!) and had to share this charming summer getaway. The home, located in the Hamptons, is host to an array of eclectic expression in its interiors. Ranging from bright florals to subdue backgrounds, tribal patterns and plenty of fresh light...there is something about this display that has me entranced. 
This photo shoot captures a bit of the outdoor living area along with the interior decorating. 

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I ddi!

country summer

To me, few things say summer better than country music. When I was driving with my dad the other day, a country music station was on the radio. He asked me if I listened to country music and I responded, "only in the summer". For some reason, as the temps heat up, nothing sounds sweeter to my ears than the country music! I could listen to the tunes for hours and I have to admit that I am quite envious of the whiskey sipping, truck bed dancing, fire-fly lit summer nights.
Even if I won't be weaving on a country road in a old ford pick-up drinking moonshine...it leaves me envisioning a pure, carefree, and perfect picture of summer evenings in the country south.
As the weekend kicks off and if thumbing your way down to North Carolina doesn't seem to meet the itinerary, let this playlist give you a little southern exposure and escape to those dream-worthy summer nights.

Here are my favorite songs this summer:

The Humans of New York

A popular NY street photographer (HONY) has been capturing the purest moments of New York's street life for the past few years. In addition to exploring every nook and cranny of the big apple, special journeys to places like San Francisco, Boston and Iran, have been featured on the site. 
From couples in Central Park, to families picking up after Hurricane Sandy, to artists on the subway, HONY has a treasured collection of some of the world's most eclectic and unique...but truly special people of everyday life. Even more valuable than the photos themselves, are the short captions found at the bottom of each snapshot. If a picture says 1,000 words, HONY has found the right way to supplement the visual, making the image come alive...as a true representation of the individual. 
Some of the captions are humorous, others quirky, and some incredibly moving.
Real people, in a real moment. I challenge you to get lost (like I have) on the site. Not only will you learn so much about these unnamed faces, but even more about yourself. Start opening your eyes as you walk down the street.
Heck, if people in "hustle-and-bustle" New York can...so can you. 

Here are some of my favorites:

wide brim

You'll be keeping both the style lords and sky lords at bay with these hats! The fabulous hats will keep you safe & protected from the sun and its dangerous rays...BUT also, ensure that you'll be super stylish as well. 
Whether or not you want to remain incognito, you will be turning heads wherever you go, so don't be surprised if the paparazzi starts snapping. 
Enjoy your day, toodles!

pool party

What perfect weekend inspiration for the summer!
Dreaming of a pool party tonight, in a version of these fabulous looks, taking poolside chic to the next level.
All will be perfect if I stay standing; although if I looked as great being pushed in the pool as the lady below...I might just tolerate a little late night unexpected splash.
Happy weekend, toodles!
