WEEKEND LINK LOVE

free people

Craig and I are spending our weekend up at Granite Lake in New Hampshire (right outside of Keene) so I am looking forward to a weekend of reading, swimming, eating (and drinking). I’m having major Mommy guilt because we are leaving Hunter (our cat) behind and bringing Nora (our dog) but he’s an outdoor cat so I think he’ll entertain himself for a few days. He’s definitely going to lecture me about it when we get home (haha).

If you have any plans to visit Cape Cod Grace’s travel guide is a must read.

I can’t resist J.Crew particularly when they are having a good sale. I picked up this tank, this tee, this silk cami (in two colors) and these shorts for my trip.

For those of you that went to the Newport Folk Festival, or have been in the past, this is a great article about the heart and soul of Newport Folk.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is only on for a few more days. These are my favorites from the sale.

Speaking of, there are some awesome TopShop pieces on sale and you can enter for a chance to win a $300 TopShop gift card here.

I know I can’t stop talking about this Talbots jacket (seen here and here) but it’s so versatile and chic and it’s under $50! Sizing runs big, I got a 2P.

I just started using this Kate Sommerville serum and this Yves Saint Laurent Foundation and I am OBSESSED with both.

 I’m starting to get really creative over here with my wardrobe as I’m getting into one of those “I have nothing to wear ruts.” I don’t want to go and buy summer clothes, but I’m just not mentally prepared to start buying for fall, so I’m just not buying much of anything right now. I’ve really taken a liking to wearing all black as of late and I think scalloped shorts and a (faux) leather tank are a great way to spice up a basic all black ensemble. I’ve definitely gotten my moneys worth out of this Talbots jacket which is still on sale, it just elevates any outfit I wear it with. Craig and I are headed to NH today for a long weekend and I’m not sure what type of connectivity we’ll have, if any, but I’ll be sharing our adventure on Instagram so make sure you follow along there! And in case you missed it, there’s a great TopShop gift card giveaway right this way.

NAVY PLEATED SHORTS AND A TOPSHOP GIVEAWAY

IMG_1420 IMG_1396 IMG_1390 IMG_1389 IMG_1374

J.CREW NAVY PLEATED SHORTS (ON SALE), BLOUSE-OLD (SIMILAR HERE ON SALE), AND CLUTCH // TALBOTS SNAKE PRINT SANDALS (SIMILAR HERE) // CAPWELL + CO TASSEL NECKLACE AND CUFF // BAUBLEBAR LINKS NECKLACE // COLE HAAN SUNGLASSES

These navy pleated shorts were another great find from the J.Crew sale (under $20!). The pleats and sophisticated fabric give them a bit of an upgrade so they can be worn dressy or casual. Probably not appropriate for most offices, I guess it depends on where you work, but definitely another perfect staple for summer and fall. I feel like this week is flying by, and tomorrow Craig and I are headed to NH for a few days to relax at his family’s lake house. We don’t travel often in the summer, why would you want to leave Newport? But I am so ready for a weekend full of relaxing, reading and swimming at the lake (no beach traffic up there!).  I’ve teamed up with a great group of bloggers for an awesome TopShop giveaway so make sure you enter below.

 I’ve been eyeing this navy silk cami from J.Crew basically all summer so I snatched up it the second it went on sale (now I want the black and the sea foam green). It’s the perfect color for the blush skinny jeans I got this spring that I haven’t worn much. In the spirit of thinking about pieces that will transition well into fall I think this outfit is a great example. Swap the heels for ankle boots or pumps and add a cute blazer and voila!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Craig and I spent most of our time out on the water listening to the Newport Folk Fest and we had a fabulous lazy Sunday with lunch at a Thai restaurant and a mani/pedi for me.  I know I said I wasn’t going to talk about fall yet, but I am starting to think about adding pieces to my wardrobe that will transition well into Autumn. I’m a big proponent of not editing your wardrobe by season (I’ll wear a fisherman sweater in the dead of winter or the middle of summer) but I guess that might be the New England girl in me. I’ve had quite some luck with Marshalls (I got this romper earlier in the summer) and I really like this gray jumpsuit not only because it’s so comfy it feels like I’m wearing pajamas, but it’s the perfect piece for fall. Paired with ankle booties and a jean jacket it’s an easy, comfortable outfit for cooler temps. And if jumpsuits aren’t your thing these pants are a nice alternative.

P.S. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is only on for one more week. Check out my favorite picks here.

MAXI SKIRT STYLE: NOW AND LATER

COLLAGE


BAND OF OUTSIDERS MAXI SKIRT (INEXPENSIVE OPTION FROM ASOS) // KATE MOSS FOR TOPSHOP CROP TOP // FRENCH CONNECTION ISLA SANDAL (ON SALE) // BRAHMIN MELBOURNE CROSS BODY // TOM FORD LIPSTICK IN BLUSH NUDE //
 J.CREW DENIM SHIRT // DOLCE VITA CACTUS BOOTIE // REBECCA MINKOFF QUILTED BAG // TOM FORD LIPSTICK IN BRUISED PLUM

OK so I fully admit that some of these items are BEYOND splurging, (ahem, maxi skirt). But it is just calling my name! For easy style to transition from summer to fall (I know I’m sorry I shouldn’t even be talking about it) a maxi skirt is the perfect piece to wear now with a cute pair of sandals and later with a great pair of ankle boots. I think the Folk Fest got me feeling all bohemian but seriously the print and cut of this maxi is just to die for. Hey a girl can dream right?

 JOE’S JEANS // FRENCH CONNECTION HEELS (ON SALE) // COLE HAAN SUNGLASSES // CAPWELL + CO TASSEL NECKLACE WORN AS A BRACELET (SIMILAR HERE) // J.CREW JEWELED TOP-SOLD OUT (SIMILAR)

So I wasn’t kidding when I said you’d be seeing a lot of these boyfriend jeans. I was having one of those “I have nothing to wear” moments and these are pretty much my standby for practically any occasion. Even with the baggy fit and rips I think they look chic with a cute pair of heels and a sparkly statement top. I got all sorts of confused this week and was convinced that it was Friday on Thursday, so make sure you check out my weekend links that I posted yesterday! It’s Folk Festival weekend in Newport which basically means it’s gonna be a $hit$how in town, but it’s all good, and Craig and I might even score some tix last minute so stay tuned on Instagram and you can see my weekend festival fashion! Happy Friday. xx

P.S. Brahmin posted a video of our behind the scenes tour at the factory. Check it out here!
