All posts in summer

Since I focused mostly on the Grand Hotel in my post last week, I wanted to also highlight the beauty of Mackinac Island, Michigan and give a little more travel related advice. The best time to visit Mackinac Island is from Memorial Day weekend to about mid-September. While the Grand Hotel stays open until the […]

I saw photos of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Upper Michigan on Instagram last year and immediately put it on my must visit list. When I asked Michelle Adams who moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan about going to visit the hotel, she said it was a long drive from her house which meant […]

I hope you are enjoying a nice long holiday weekend to celebrate the Fourth of July. I couldn’t think of a better place to post today than Sag Harbor. It’s such a quaint harbor town full of American flags and patriotic price. If you’re looking to partake in the all American past time of shopping […]

While I was on Mackinac Island, everyone kept commenting on and complimenting my espadrilles. I brought three pair because they are comfortable and the flat pairs are easy to pack. I’m not the only one who is a fan of espadrilles. The Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton Matthews share a love for […]

Chic in Capri

Every once in a while there is an event that overtakes Instagram, in a good way, and this week it was the Zimmermann press trip to Capri. The fashion brand had invited a select group of celebrities and influencers to the idyllic island to celebrate the opening of their 35th store. While Zimmermann dresses usually […]

I can’t believe the year is half over and the Fourth of July is next week. I love Independence Day celebrations and the preppy red, white, and blue fashion, accessories, and decor that let Americans show their patriotism. If you need some updates to get you into the holiday spirit, I’ve picked out my favorites […]

Summer officially started last Friday and now we’re bracing for a heat wave in New York this week. This makes it the perfect time to wear white dresses. I only have one in my closet right now so I’m searching for some new options. If you are as well, I’ve pulled together some of my […]

I’m in Sag Harbor this week and I’ve already done a little shopping. It was warmer than expected when I arrived so I bought this white shirt and yesterday I finally succumbed to the Birkenstock trend with this white pair from the Goop pop up shop. Since it’s raining here today and I am delaying […]

No one does beach and nautical chic like photographer Matt Albiani and Ron Brand. Matt has an entire book devoted to the subject, Lifeguard on Duty, and the duo own the Mate Gallery store in Montecito curated with maritime accessories, book, objects, photography, and more. Now you can experience their aesthetic in a summer rental […]

If you’re looking for the perfect hostess gift or an update for your summer table, Williams-Sonoma is currently offering 30% off the Aerin Collection. I love the patterned plates and wicker accessories. There is definitely something for everyone. And this is not a sponsored post. Just a public service announcement.

I used to visit Maine in the summer when I first moved to New York but I’m well overdue for a trip now. It’s a popular destination for those looking for relief from the heat in beautiful natural surroundings so it’s no wonder that Gil Schafer fell in love with the Pine Tree State growing […]

My navy jacket from Sézane is sold out but there are other fabric options available. Another great option is this navy Blazé Milano Spirit herringbone double-breasted silk blazer. I’ve been coveting one of their blazers for years and the sale makes it the perfect time to pick one up. This striped boatneck t-shirt was such […]

If you’ve ever driven through East Hampton, then you’ve probably seen this beautiful white house that sits at the intersection of Main Street and Woods Lane. It’s currently on the market for $12.5 Million which means we can all see inside now. The house at 6 Woods Lane was completely renovated in 1992 but was […]

Serena & Lily has everything you need for summer at 20% off during their Memorial Day Sale with the code SUMMERPREP. Serena & Lily believes living well begins at home and they’ve got everything you […]

It was so cold and rainy in New York this past month that it was hard to get excited about getting dressed every day. Now that it looks like summer weather has finally arrived it’s time to break out the pretty dresses and accessories. I’ll pulled together my favorites that are perfect for graduations, weddings, […]

As I mentioned yesterday, Mezzaore Hotel and Thermal Spa is part of the Pellicano Group of hotels. The iconic coral exteriors and crenellated watchtower built high up on the cliff in the 16th and 17th centuries has amazing views that the group could not resist. The family acquired the Ischia property six months ago and […]

It looks like the weather is finally going to warm up this week. I think we can all use a little spring right now but after seeing the new Weekend Max Mara Nantucket collection, I want to jump directly to summer. The collection modeled by Hailey Baldwin Bieber is a collaboration with interior designer Anthony Baratta […]
