Retro Swim

Retro chic is a huge trend that has emerged in swimwear this season, and I am just smitten with that old Hollywood glamour feel! (Case in point: I am wearing a hot pink polka dot bikini and huge black sunnies as I type.) 

Shabby Apple's swim line is right on trend, and there are so many fun and flirty one piece wonders that have tickled my fancy.

Cabana: pink and ruffles - perfection!

Lagoon: in navy, my black of summer.

Maraschino: nothing says vixen like firey red!

 Quiet Stars: j'adore those ruffles!

Warm Sands: bright yellow with a golden tan...summer sunshine!

Off to soak up some sun with Husband! XX

Happy Birthday, Chuck!

Just because my beloved Gossip Girl is on hold until Fall, you didn't think I would forget Mr. Bass's birthday, did you?

You know you love me. XOXO,

Jazzy Jack Rogers

Like many of you, I live in my gold and silver Navajo sandals all summer. They are so versatile, and these colors have always satisfied my warm-weather wardrobe needs. They go with everything!

Sweet Southern Prep alerted me yesterday, and I have not been able to get it out of my mind since: J.Crew has made my beloved bubble necklace in HOT PINK. 
Shop here. 

I'm easily distracted by jewelry, and this pretty piece has me captivated. After all, what wouldn't it go with in my wardrobe?! Off to daydream of neon azalea baubles around my neck...

Husband and I celebrated the 6 year anniversary of the fateful night we met with a romantic weekend of dinner dates and lounging by the water... we popped the bubbly on the boat yesterday and clinked our glasses!

Here is a sneak peek into the Belmont Stakes bridal shower I attended on Saturday... I was in my element in my new Lilly Maybell dress and big derby hat!

All photos my own...prettied up by Instagram. Find the Maybell dress here

Lilly, Big Hats, and Bachelorettes

The weekend is so close I can taste it! Tomorrow is going to be a fun-filled day of bridal showers and bachelorette parties for this lady. For the bridal shower, we will be at the races watching the Belmont Stakes...I will be decked out in Lilly and a big derby hat! (Keep an eye on Instagram for photos once my dress has been selected and hat has been decorated.) The bachelorette party will be dining and celebrating in the city for the night. 

Get the look! Maillot here, hat here 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend filled with sunshine! XOXO

Today is the day! After previewing the collection on Gilt and through Facebook, I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Trina Turk collection for Banana Republic in stores (I'm a try-it-on kind of girl)

This has not stopped me from swooning over the collection endlessly online, and I have my favorites: 

The Swirl tunic dress - hot in hot pink!

The Crazy botanical twist strap dress - trĂ©s chic! 

This lovely turquoise twirl scarf

Nantucket Shopping

Nantucket is one of my absolute favorite spots to dine and to shop, and Husband & I did lots of both during our long weekend on the island! A visit to In the Pink is always in order, and I had a ball in the dressing room trying on Lilly after Lilly dress. I slipped into: 

the MarieKate Dress ... I adore that lace! Just one question: the turquoise? 
or the lime green
As soon as I saw the photo from the Summer catalog in the boat, I fell head over heels for these stripes! J'adore the Felicity dress

You all know how I feel about Lilly's summer print, You Gotta Regatta. (Hellooooo, new bloggie background!) I tried on many styles in this print and finally decided on a lovely tote for the boat and beach. Here were a few of my favorites: 

This maxi just screams effortless glamour.  
The pink zipper tickled me pink on the Delia shift
The white details of the Franco are the perfect summer touches to this sundress. 
Finally, the Georgie made me feel like a Southern belle through and through. 
I loved each dress, but it was the Maybell that stole my heart. Those stripes, those ruffles, that neckline, the gold exposed zipper...oooh la la! This dress made the journey back across the bay to the mainland with me.

After leaving Lilly, we hopped into Addison Craig, which was filled with Tory Burch galore! I bought the Eddie flats in a lovely Hermes orange hue. Fantastic news: the Eddies in orange are now on SALE for a steal here

Are you all as smitten with the Lilly summer collection and Tory flats (any Tory shoes, for that matter!) as me? 

PS: Remember when Husband and I went to Spain and I promised photos and stories? They are finally coming soon, pinky promise! XOXO
