Summer Fridays

(Can’t believe I’ve been calling these posts “LATELY” instead of “SUMMER FRIDAYS”, since I, ya know, have Summer Fridays *eye roll emoji*)

Can you believe that it’s July 22? I’m in shock it’s basically August. The only reason why I’m not seriously complaining that summer is almost over is because my birthday is on Monday! Eep! I’ll be 24…………..and I accept gifts in the form of crowns, Chipotle gift cards, and virtual hugs 😉

WEARING: Guys, I know many parts of the world are hot right now, but New York is hot AF. And sticky. So basically, I’ve stocked up on sleeveless anything (trying to steer clear of any poly blends) that will breath and not show how much I’m actually sweating. I got this tank on major sale at Banana Republic and I’m SO happy I did. Luckily, last Friday I picked up this top at the Nordstrom Sale – and I’m so happy I get to wear it now. It makes for a super cute “going out” top! Click through to shop a few more of my summer heat essentials!

WATCHING: Omg. My boyfriend finally convinced me to watch Breaking Bad with him (he’s seen it already), and I don’t know what took me so long! I thought I wouldn’t be able to get into it….but boy, was I wrong. IT IS SO GOOD! Have you seen?

BUYING: The #NSale is real good (and it’s finally open to the public, shop away)! Not as good as past seasons, but preeeetty darn good. I shopped in store last friday and picked up this tank, this top (out of stock, but they frequently re-stock! Here’s a similar option!), these boots, this bag, and this top! I forgot how much fun it is trying on things in store, but Nordstrom has THE best return/exchange policy, which is why I really don’t mind getting most packages sent to my house! One package already arrived, but here’s what I ordered online:

GOING: Me and my two partners in crime (Allie and Mollie) are back at it again. We’re heading to the Hamptons today for a relaxing weekend. Last time we went, we had a garden tour on Saturday, but this weekend is a little more jammed packed (yet pretty casual). We’re going to Wolffer Vineyards, dinner at Moby’s, drinks at Surf Lodge, and then probably a lot of relaxing in the jacuzzi (with Veuve in hand, of course).

BLOGGING: Lately I’ve been feeling super inspired, so I’ve been shooting a TON of new looks for you guys. I hope you find them new and refreshing – and even give you a little outfit inspiration! Some of my recent posts (like this one and this one) have been my favorite shoots to date, so it really just makes me want to produce more quality content for you! 

WISH LIST-ING: This bag. Ugh. Beautiful. Also, these loafers. Oh and I guess this dress 😉

  • Last night in my usual 6:30 @soulcycle class, @mantaszvinas said something that just stuck. He said, “Say your resolutions out loud.” And in that moment I realized something: I never said my resolution out loud to anyone. How am I supposed to be held accountable?
So in 2019, everything I do is going to have a purpose. Every blog post I publish, every Instagram post I curate, every email I send, every argument I make,  every thing I put in my body. WHATEVER. It’s all going to have a PURPOSE. Resolutions could be heavy weight that is constantly on your mind — but that’s not what I want this year to be. 2019 is going to be another year of growth, happiness, success, and yes, probably even failure. But damn, I’m ready for it🙌🏼
Your turn. Say your resolutions out loud. Let’s hold each other accountable👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
