My perfect summer weekend outfit includes a lightweight dress, sandals, and simple accessories. Since this heat wave isn’t breaking I’ll keep this dress streak going and post this new lace dress I bought on my birthday. I wore it for the first time to the garden party at the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum which was the perfect place for it. Third Thursdays is all about live music, drinks, and a chance to view the beautiful art Isabella Stewart Gardner collected. Her history is amazing and if you ever get the chance to visit I’m sure you’ll fall in love.
I also bought these lace up sandals in the clearance section for $13, the brand is Zigi Soho. I linked some similar styles below. I read on Whowhatwear.com that yellow is a hot summer trend right now so I guess I’m already on board. A few other trends include all white outfits, cat-eye sunglasses, and basket bags. What’s your favorite summer trend right now? Let me know in the comments below?
May is a few days away so let’s start the new month with pins I’m currently in love with. From fringed denim to plant decor I have so many new pins on my boards giving me major inspiration for the spring. I keep seeing fringed denim pants around on different blogs and I want to give the look a try eventually. Fringed jeans could work with off the shoulder tops that are coming back into the fashion world. I get so excited when I see old trends come back into play. Another thing I want to do this spring is buy some plants to put in my apartment.
The second picture with the plants is something I want in the corner of my place near my bar stools. The height difference is a nice touch to the decor.

I’m looking for the perfect one that I can wear to work or going out with a plain white tee and heels. Speaking of clothes I’m really into stripes lately.
I found a cute form fitting stripped dress during my trip to Montreal at a local boutique and I’ve worn in four times already. And to round up my favorite pins this month is Elaine Welteroth on The Coveteur. I loved seeing herbeauty routine on The Coveteur. She uses Snapchat to connect with her followers and show them her backseat beauty ritual when she’s running to a meeting or late to an event. She uses RMS beauty concealer which is a great brand. I swear by their coconut oil beauty wipes.

In the quaint town of Palm Beach, two friends and I took a short but necessary trip. I never thought of traveling to Palm Beach so when the opportunity came up to go I took full advantage of it. As soon as we landed it was 80 degrees and very humid. A drastic change from the 30 degree weather in Boston. We booked an Airbnb condo just 5 minutes from the beach and all the local bars and restaurants. We immediately put our bags down in the room and dressed for the beach. The first night we decided to grab Italian food at this local restaurant Testa that had the cutest outdoor terrace surrounded by palm trees and decorative outdoor lights. It felt so good to feel a warm breeze and have my sandals on.
The locals were very kind and everyone was very open to helping us with directions. On the walk home from Testa we found Bee Organics which is a local smoothie and juice place. I went there twice a day from Thursday-Saturday, racking up unnecessary expenses on smoothies and organic oatmeal. On Thursday night we had dinner at Buccan, known for it’s small plates. My favorite thing we ordered had to be the sweet corn ravioli and short rib empanada. After dinner we crossed the bridge and went to a club in West Palm Beach. On our last night we stayed on the beach as long as we could. It was so upsetting to think in less than 24 hours we would be back in the cold. We decided that we should go back to West Palm Beach and have dinner at Rocco’s taco and tequila bar . Before we headed to the airport on Saturday we got one last smoothie and walked to the beach one last time. My time in Palm Beach was short but so sweet. I enjoyed every minute of it.
