Overdue beach day – Nordstrom rack

Bathing suit: Nordstrom Rack

Photography: Nick Carter

This is my first time on the beach this summer so it was necessary to take a few pictures of my new one piece bathing suit. I can’t really complain because I had the chance to swim in a pool so I was able to enjoy the water in some way. There’s something about the beach that’s so relaxing. I was raised in Revere, Ma and for those of you who aren’t familiar with the city it’s about 20 minutes outside of Boston and there’s a really nice beach there. My parents and I would always go here to grab Kelly’s Roast Beef and during the summer my cousins and I would go to the carnival they set up every year. I have so many great memories here so I will always cherish this beach.

This Sole East bathing suit is so comfy and purple is my favorite color! This bathing suit isn’t on the website anymore but there are some adorable bikinis left. If you have a tropical vacation planned I think you guys would like their selection. Even though September is in a few days It’s never too late for a beach day right?

Loft lemon dress

Dress: Loft (size small), Shoes: Asos

Summer isn’t over for me. I refuse to believe that it’s August and in a few weeks September will be here. I bought a few sweaters during my trip to Toronto because it was so cold up there! But I knew I had to take full advantage of this dress before it was too late. I stopped by the Market Street Lynnfield Outlets with my mom a few weeks ago and of course, we went into Loft. We always seem to find our way into a Loft store and we always leave with something new. My style has definitely changed over the past few months, I’m really into the preppy look right now and I’m not sure why. Loft sizes run really small so I got this dress in a size two. I’m normally a size 4-6 depending on the store. So make sure to try the dresses on before you purchase. My Asos shoes are a size 8. The shoe sizing at Asos is also kind of strange so I always get a size up just to be careful.

I never thought I would be able to pull off a dress with lemons on it but I really love this look! It’s so fun and colorful. You’re the best Loft! I can’t wait to see what the Fall/Winter collection looks like.

What I Wore: Primark Skirt

Top: Loft, Skirt: Primark, Heel: Asos

These photos were taken on a really really humid day here in Boston. Even an outfit like this was too much! But I love this skirt and I wanted to share it. I purchased it from Primark a year ago and it’s still in good shape. Happy Friday everyone! 

Favorite Pins pt.9 – Gingham

I purchased a gingham dress a few months ago and it just didn’t look great on me at all. I get so envious when I see people wearing the print and it just works for them. I put together some of my favorite looks from my Pinterest person style board. I really want to buy the pants in image 6 for the fall and blazer in image 1. I think I might give this look a try again in the fall. This summer I’m really into bold prints and bright colors.

I eventually need to stop buying summer clothes and look into transitioning my closet. I can picture myself wearing the pants in image 6 with a lightweight sweater and cute loafers. And I’ll probably pair the outfit with some accessories from Baublebar. Which item is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.

Thrifting with Savers

I was provided compensation to shop at a Local Savers store. All opinions are my own*

Thrifting is a fun and I will always take the opportunity to shop for great clothes at discounted prices. Savers recently released its 2017 State of Reuse report examining perceptions around clothing consumption and reuse. 63% of Boston respondents admitted that they still throw their clothes away in the trash. Which is 9% higher than the national average. That blows my mind! Unless the clothing is destroyed you should always donate! My boyfriend and I just dropped off a ton of old clothes and bags to Savers recently. The sidewalk outside of the store was filled with donations.

Donating is a great way to give back to your community. You can always help a family in need. I bought these two dresses and this white top at savers and I spent about $25. What are some of your favorite stores to thrift shop at?  Let me know in the comments below!

What I Wore: Yellow Lace Dress

Dress: Marshalls, Shoes: Marshalls

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?
