Easy Breezy

In the midst of Boston's hot and humid summers, I've found that the best way to beat the heat is to dress in breezy flowy outfits -like this one! I love the bold graphic on this tee plus its loose, relaxed fit is perfect for those hot summer days. These shorts are also so light and comfy, it almost feels like I'm not wearing them!

Also, TGIF! Do you guys have any fun weekend plans? Mine will be focused on making the most of the thunderstorms the weatherman says are ahead...!

It's that time of year again...time for summer sales! So many stores have great deals going on right now and I've gone through and picked out some of my faves from Aritzia and Anthropologie. Also be sure to check out Zara, Topshop and Shopbop for more awesome deals!

Flower Child

Happy Monday! Hope you had a fun & relaxing weekend. Mine was filled with lazy mornings, good company and afternoons spent soaking up some sun.

These pictures were taken last week while I was out running some errands. It's my best impersonation of a free-spirit-boho-hippie-flower-child. I decided to edge up this fringed, flowered kimono with some gold studs on my wrist and feet.

Summer-y drinks to brighten up a rainy day

Happy Friday and first day of summer! The sun is supposed to be out all weekend, so I hope I get to soak up rays. One of my best friends who I haven't seen in over 6 months is also visiting this weekend, so I'm excited to finally catch up with her. Plus, Zara is having their huge Spring/Summer sale so you can bet I'll be scouring their store this weekend -go check it out for yourself too! 

In the meantime, here are some recent snaps from my phone :)

Wishlist Wednesday: Supernova Girl

Holograms seem to be everywhere these days. In the right doses, they can add the perfect dose of shine to any outfit. And if you're a 90's kid like me, doesn't it take you back to Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century

I love the embellishments on this sweater I picked up from J.Crew last week! It adds just the right dose of sparkle. Plus it's surprisingly breathable and kept me cool even while walking around in the heat.

Dinner Date

Last night I went out for dinner and thought it would be fun to dress up! This skirt is one of my favorites and because it's made of jersey, it's actually super comfy despite all the sequins. I love that I can dress it up with heels and a fancy blouse or dress it down with sneakers and a basic tee for a more effortless look.

Boston Bound

These pictures were taken the last day I was home and now I'm in Boston again for the summer!  It was quite the temperature shock coming back here and I can't even imagine wearing these long pants and jacket right now-it's over 90 degrees here in Boston! It looks like summer weather has officially arrived. Hope you're all having a great weekend and Happy June!
