hamptons happy.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; summer outfit photos; Line and Dot maxi pleat top in cream; Loft Botanical Print Summer Stroll Skirt; Courtney Kerr x BaubleBar Cerise Arrowhead Necklace; Coach Heritage Penny crossbody bag in lime green; Dolce Vita Helia gold chevron sandal wedgesThis past Saturday, James, Tracy and I took a road trip to the Hamptons.  Considering that it was the first time that any of us had ever been, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect start to the weekend.  We started with lunch in Southampton, followed by a little shopping on Main Street.

Tune in later this week for the next leg in our weekend adventure.  Hint: it’s even more peaceful than the Hamptons!

la vie bohème.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; summer outfit photos; Gentle Fawn Swift boho dress; J.Crew Double-Tassel Gold Necklace; C. Wonder skinny snakeskin cuff bangle; CC Skye Maize geometric gold bracelet; J.Crew magenta skinny belt; Piperlime DV Dolce Vita Helia gold chevron cognac sandals; Linea Pelle Grayson Bar clutchI must not be feeling like myself lately.  Yesterday, I traded in my brights for neutrals, and today — probably for the first time ever — I’m pulling a bit of boho in my outfit.  You may have noticed, but my looks are generally classic, prim, preppy and sometimes even a little punk-inspired, but I’ve never really dabbled in la vie bohème.

Wonder skinny snakeskin cuff bangle; CC Skye Maize geometric gold bracelet; J.Crew magenta skinny belt; Piperlime DV Dolce Vita Helia gold chevron cognac sandals; Linea Pelle Grayson Bar clutchWell this Gentle Fawn dress was the perfect excuse to experiment with my style.  The earthy colors are the perfect compromise between my love of color and my recent desire to tone it down a few notches.  Paired with my new favorite tassel necklace and chevron-adorned sandals, and I’m pretty sure I could get used to this.

Don’t forget — today is the last day to enter my giveaway to win a bauble of your choice from The Rad Market.  Click here to enter and good luck!

Wonder snakeskin skinny bangleThis past weekend, the boyfriend and I drove up to Rhode Island for a little birthday getaway.  We ate and drank our way through Providence and Newport, laid out by the sea, and hung out with the Vanderbilts.  It was a quick trip, but packed with plenty of exploration and sightseeing.

Wonder snakeskin skinny bangleFor our stroll through the Brown University campus, I put on my version of the summer suit: a double dose of denim topped with a light gray blazer and cognac accessories.  A little bit casual, a little bit collegiate and a whole lot of chic.
