 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?

BOYFRIEND JEANS AND BEACHY HAIR

 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!

WEEKEND LINKS

IMG_0570

Just to give you a little glimpse into my frame of mind lately, I was CONVINCED, today was Friday and it wasn’t until I got about halfway through this post that I realized it is not in fact Friday. So here’s some weekend links to enjoy, a day early. I need more coffee.

I was up way too late the other night finishing up a post and somehow ended up on the J.Crew website, funny how that happens. Their sale is pretty awesome right now and I picked up this plaid minaudière I’ve been eyeing ALL summer, these shorts and this navy silk cami.

These French Connection shoes (seen here and here) that everyone seems to love are on super duper sale right now (they are actually really comfortable-honestly).

I wore an all white outfit this week and it was pretty popular with the internet (and I scored most of it at TJ Maxx!).

Grace’s post about long distance friends hit close to home. I’ve taken a similar approach to friendships. Plus a happy girl is a pretty girl and she just looks so gorgeous in those photos.

I never quite thought of Talbots as a great place to shop (at least for myself) but this white coat that I got is simply gorgeous and only $60!

I love this post from Hallie, not only because the outfit is super cute, but because secretly it makes me feel good about the fact that I left the city and moved back to Rhode Island. I love New York, but I remember the back sweat and smelly subway all too well!

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is still going strong. It’s really hard for me to even entertain thinking about fall, BUT the fact that plaid coats are a major thing is making me very happy. I’ve also been LOVING my Brahmin Camden cross body which is part of the sale.

NEW YORK IN NEWPORT

This is my New Yorker in Newport outfit. With an influx of Hollywood types in Newport (Woody Allen and Emma Stone to name a few) I felt inspired to bust out my best city girl style to mix things up a bit. And in the spirit of trying to share more of my beautiful hometown, Craig and I (and Nora) ventured over to one of my favorite spots on the island, The Redwood Library. The Redwood Library (founded in 1747) is the oldest lending library in America, and the oldest library building in continuous use in the country. My Great Aunt was a huge supporter of Redwood and I think of her every time I drive by, which is quite often. Though these photos don’t capture much of the building and the grounds, they give a sense of the history and beauty that surrounds Redwood. It’s truly a treasure and a must see if you’re in Newport. And back to my New Yorker in Newport outfit, I forgot about this boac mesh dress I got last summer so I was happy to take it for a spin. I know I’ve been wearing this Brahmin bag a lot (like every day) but when something’s good I tend to stick with it. It has tons of compartments, adds just the right amount of color to every outfit and it’s the perfect length to wear as a cross body or a shoulder bag. It’s available as part of the Nordstrom anniversary sale for under $150 which is basically insanity, but it’s only here until August 4th so make sure to check it out! AND, these metallic heels are finally on sale plus 30% off at French Connection, so there’s that! Btw, I should NOT be shopping, honestly I need to cut myself off, but the J.Crew sale is SOOOO good right, so not to tempt you or anything but you might wanna just take a peek.

P.S. If you are wondering why my hair looks greasy wet it’s because a) it’s dirty and b) it’s still wet from my daily swim – 2 weeks in and going strong! But I think I might need to use shampoo really soon.

I’ve been slowly adding white pieces to my wardrobe all summer and when I found this jacket at Talbots on clearance it was the icing on the cake. I’ve never been much of a white jeans girl, and I’m a little scared of white because with a black cat and a dog it’s just a bit risky, but I couldn’t resist putting this outfit together because it looks so simple and fresh. White coats can be tricky because they can have that “lab coat look” but I love the black trim on this one because it adds a Parisian vibe rather than high school chemistry. And with this Capwell + Co necklace and Brahmin bag for a touch of color, this might just be one of my favorite summer outfits.
