keeping it casual


I couldn't go far from home without bringing along something striped! I love how this maxi skirt works dressed down with a casual tee. Perfect for a relaxed night out by the water. And a special thanks to Sally who generously offered up her new Tory Burch clutch for the evening! Best sister of the year award.

highlighter


While packing for our vacation to one of our favorite places on earth, I decided to include my new sweater from J. Crew! Since I have white-as-snow skin, I took this rare opportunity to flaunt my tan (which is basically nonexistent) and figured it would pair nicely with my neon sweater! So, here it is, the unveiling of possibly my new favorite item in my wardrobe!

souvenir


When I'm on vacation, I like to pick up a little something to remember the trip by. This time, it's this hat! I had already brought one hat with me, but this one was too perfect to pass up - not too big, not too small - just right! I also love how it changes the look of this dress a bit, another vacation staple of mine.

on the deck


I wasn't kidding about these neon shorts - endlessly wearable, peeps! Straight into the luggage they went for this week's festivities, along with my chambray shirt, which is slowly becoming one of my most-worn items. I find myself gravitating towards pieces like these - ones that can be mixed and matched with virtually anything! They certainly make packing light easy..

on vacay


Greetings from the not-so-sunny east coast! To celebrate Sally being done with high school, we headed out to the beach for a week-long getaway. Aside from today's gloomy weather, it's been nothing but sunshine and fun! While packing for the week can seem like a daunting task, the best part about it out here is the casual, laid-back vibe - a few light, breezy pieces and minimal accessories. Ah, the good life!

chocolate chip cupcakes


Remember our little Housewives baking tour we joked about? Well, we decided to continue our "trip!" This time it was fellow New Yorker Bethenny Frankel's chocolate chip cupcakes with a delicious peanut butter glaze! You can find the cupcake recipe, here, the peanut butter glaze recipe, here, and a ton of other delicious (and surprisingly healthy!) recipes in her book, The Skinnygirl Dish.


The cupcakes have sort of an almondy flavor (which Jilly loved!) from the almond extract - if you're not a huge fan, you could definitely leave it out and they'd be just as delish!


The glaze was oh-so peanut buttery and scrumptious!
You may have to heat the mixture a bit for a smoother consistency.



Have you tried any Housewives recipes yet?!

neon


I was on the hunt for some neon bottoms, so when I saw these Gap shorts, I had to have them! Just the right amount of neon to make them endlessly wearable. This time I paired them with some color, but trust me - they make just as much of a bright statement on their own!

I can't believe my little sister's all grown up :)

dressed up denim


My love for these cutoffs knows no bounds. I can literally wear them with anything! I especially love them paired with my boyfriend blazer - there's something about the grungy destroyed-ness of the denim that complements the sleek white blazer so nicely!

surprise


As many of you may know, on June 11th I celebrated my 18th birthday!! The day was filled with family, delicious food and presents! Amongst all of the gifts I was given, I'd have to say that I was most surprised by two of them, my new sunglasses and my new bracelet! As you may remember from previous want lists, I've had my eye on these Gucci aviators for quite some time - and my very generous brother got them for me (he's the best!) My bracelet was a total surprise - and I'm absolutely in love with it!
