Little White Embroidered Dress

If there’s anything my closet doesn’t need…it’s another white dress (exhibits one // two // three.) I’ve acquired a few this year but when this Rag & Bone dress went on sale I had to have it. I had been watching for the price to drop like an insane person (thank you Shopstyle sale alerts!)  It’s perfect for work or evening drinks and I love the ever so subtle embroidery on it. It screams “take me to the Hamptons!” (Speak of sales have you checked my picks for the #NSale yet? So many good deals!)

Did you have a good weekend? Mine was kind of divine. I had close to no plans except to make my way through my to do list but let me tell you how much I “accomplished”!

–  On Friday I took a class at Surfset (it was so funny) and then hit happy hour at The Mermaid Inn (one of my favorites!) with some girlfriends for gin cocktails + shrimp and avocado sliders

–  Saturday I slept in (I didn’t get out of bed until 11! I didn’t know my 30-year old self had it in me anymore!), then I hit up Chaise Fitness and o-m-g it hurt so good; followed it with brunch at Jack’s Wife Frieda (add it to your NYC list if you’ve never been), ran errands (bought two of these tanks after seeing them on my friend), picked up my maid of honor dress for my bff’s wedding in 2 weeks and finished my day by watching two movies while working and eating dumplings and drinking rose in bed. Total. Utter. Bliss.

– Sunday I got up early to get in a class at Core Fusion and then got a massage (I’ve been dealing with some back aches) and by noon I already felt so accomplished! I got more work done and managed to organize my closet, clean my room, do a face mask, apply Whitestrips and make dinner.

I feel as though I should get a prize. I honestly don’t know the last time I had such a delightfully relaxing yet productive weekend!

Striped Summer Style

meghan donovan I anthropologie tie blouse

This blouse from Anthro immediately makes me want to hop a plane for the Amalfi Coast in Italy or somewhere equally as nautical and beautiful. I’ve been seeing so many people on Instagram doing just that and while I wish I had that trip in my future, I’ll settle for the mindset for now (WHO IS WITH ME?) Please pass a glass of rose…

At under $80 though this top has gotten so much wear since picking it up the other week (have you checked out Anthro’s new arrivals yet!?) I wore it in Nashville as seen here.

This necklace is new to my collection. My parents bought it for me while in London earlier this summer and I think it is so special. A woman in London makes these with pearls found in the Philippines. When I opened it and told my mom “it is so unique” she immediately remarked she thought she failed in picking out a present – ha! (How often have you said something is “unique” when you get a present you don’t like? She had a point…) But honestly it was the best way to describe it. I have nothing like it and will always think of the sentiment when I wear it. (Thank you Mom & Dad!)

wit & whimsy I summer style

This summer in New York has actually been unseasonably un-miserable. Maybe because I’ve been here less this summer (on the road lots) but this is the first week I’ve actually been feeling the humidity. Normally by this time in the summer I am praying for Fall weather. It’s allowed me to get more wear out of my denim though – particularly these white jeans which I love.

And because I’ll actually be in the city this weekend, I’m looking forward to doing something on my summer activity list!

And how cute is this Timex watch? It couldn’t be more perfect for stacking and I just love the gold polka dots on it. At $55 (or even less if you shop on the Timex site!) it is the perfect accessory to add to your arm party. (Not to mention…wouldn’t it make a darling gift for a girlfriend?)

At 30 years old I probably shouldn’t own so many one pieces but WHATEVER I LOVE THEM. I think I’ve added 5 or so already this year to my wardrobe but I particularly love this one from Maison Jules because of its pattern and fit.

I first learned about Maison Jules when the brand extended an invite to be whisked off to Paris via seeing An American in Paris on Broadway. It was such a delightful evening of wine, cheese and theatre. The line itself is inspired by the city of light and aims to deliver elevated basics with whimsical prints and I was shocked at how many pieces of theirs are under $100. (See my favorites below.)

I’ve been sporting rompers over the past couple months (here, here and here) and this is one of my favorite ones I haven’t yet shot. I love the fact there isn’t any thought required when donning one. No mixing of prints or figuring out what top goes with what bottom – just slip a one piece on and you’re out the door.

Given I’m headed to Nashville this weekend where it is going to be H-O-T, you can bet I will have at least two printed rompers in tow. (Any recos for us while we’re down there!?)
