• The White Tee Shirt

    Ah, the white tee shirt. Much like a pair of jeans (or denim cutoffs), it can be hard to find a good one. You don’t want it to be see-through, but also don’t want it to be too thick. Slightly slouchy, soft and definitely comfortable; that is what you want! I did a round up of a few white tees that I have and love and also ones that look like they would be great! I just ordered two new white tees from Everlane (#1) and am super impressed with the quality and the fit! I also love #2 from Lululemon. I don’t have this exact Gap tee (#5), but…

  • Easy Cotton Dresses

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I always consider this the kick off of Summer, although this looks quite different for us this year. This will be the first Memorial Day in a very long time I won’t be spending it in RI with family and friends. Bizarre and a real bummer! Regardless, we are still going to make it a fantastic low key weekend here. The kick off of Summer has me thinking more and more about my summer closet (and packing for the big trip to RI) and what I really want to be wearing on those hot Summer days. Cotton. I’ve become pickier about fabrics, and the Summer definitely…

  • Denim Cutoffs…

    Finding the perfect denim cutoffs can be hard. Almost as hard as finding the right pair of jeans… maybe harder? Well, shorts weather is upon us! Especially with Memorial Day weekend here (can you believe that!)…  I have my favorite pair which is #1 on the list, but I rounded up a few more that look like they would be great too!

  • Week Nine Coronavirus Hiatus: Warmer Weather At Home Fashion

    Alright. Let’s be honest. Who thought this was going to last this long? And even when the Stay At Home orders are lifted, life isn’t going back to “normal”. Those gorgeous Spring dresses in my closet aren’t going out to dinner. That said, the weather is changing, and sometimes something as little as new pair of shorts can lift one’s spirit. Make you feel fresh. So as we head into Week Nine I don’t have any great words of wisdom (I ran out of those weeks ago) but I do have some fun new picks for warm weather casual at home fashion. (Say that five times fast). That means cotton,…

  • April Favorites… 2020

    I know I say it all the time; “Where did the month go?”. But really… where did it go? April was one very long blur. I can not believe it’s already over. Lot’s of TV, movies & books  here… because what else have we done this month? I hope everyone is hanging in during their quarantine!     White + Warren Cashmere Sweatshirt – I bought this utterly soft sweater from my favorite local shop, Fred. It’s on sale in both spots! I LOVE it. Feels put together while still so comfortable.  Defending Jacob – Apple TV – This book was actually the first book I picked for book club…

  • Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

    I am having a hard time keeping track of days for sure… is it Tuesday or Wednesday? And forget about actual day of the month! But I did just realize that Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away! Time to get on it! I have rounded up some great gift ideas for that wonderful Mom in your life… and Moms feel free to forward this on to those that love you!      Fiddle Leaf Plant – Love the idea of pretty plant that will have a more permanent spot rather than just flowers… but you can certainly do flowers too!  Ariel Gordon Necklace – I recently discovered this…

  • Fashion: Spring Wardrobe Update!

    My closet is actually looking pretty good right now… yes, I have a few things I probably need to part with and could bulk up on some new staples (things get worn and grungy!) but I feel like I can get dressed pretty easily. I am excited for warmer weather to come so I can mix some lighter pieces to the rotation.  That said, it is always fun to have a few new special pieces to add to the mix every season! Below find some special items I have been eyeing and a  few staples I need to replenish! And a bathing suit for Spring Break. Then my closet may be…
