Hope everyone had a great weekend! Just sharing a quick post from Rosemary Beach – I love the ease of a dress for the beach and this linen dress was spot on perfect! Kept everything simple with heels and beads.

The week has gone by so quickly – it is amazing how much time it takes to get the house back in order after being out of town for a few weeks. I am enjoying catching up on my shows since I have been TV free all summer. I just picked up a show on Netflix called Peaky Blinders. Can I say I am completely ensnared with it? It stars Cillian Murphy (I dig the Irish accent) and is a British historical crime drama about gangsters operating in Birmingam, England during the aftermath of World War I. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
I bought this skirt on a crazy sale and absolutely love it! It is the softest silk and I love the flirty feminine bounce. I can’t wait to wear it again! I wanted to keep the look chic and simple and since I am at the beach flats (I can’t remember the last time I wore so many flats).
Hope everyone is having a great week! I am still mentally in Rosemary Beach so these photos are a great way to relive the fun. I saw this sweet eyelet dress and fell in love with the hot pink color (its $21 – if they had more colors I would have gotten them all). The color is spot on for the beach and with tanned skin you can’t go wrong. The eyelet material of the dress is also completely on trend for summer and perfect for high temperatures. I added the hot pink slides for a fun summer vibe and I can’t leave the house without a hat so I added the topper and was ready to roll.
I hope everyone is having a great summer! I have just gotten back from my happy place – Rosemary Beach! I am relaxed like goo right now. I want to share some of the tons of beach style outfits that I have been rocking. When I am in Rosemary I am in super relaxed mode – hence I usually try to keep things simple and easy. Most of the times I don’t even have a bag, but my hat is a necessity to keep all the sun off my face.
This chambray shift screams laid back beach style to me and it is currently $30 (it is a complete no brainer). Chambray always reminds me of summer and when in this dress shift form it is the perfect outfit to wear on a hot sticky day. The easy shift style makes it comfortable to wear in high temperatures. I added some fun accessories (this coral bead necklace was a staple at the beach – you will be seeing it a lot over the next few posts) and gold flats and I was ready for a day of shopping, lunch and dinner.
I am writing from Rosemary Beach – I am in complete beach mode. My biggest choices daily right now are – sunscreen and should I reapply sunscreen?
Wanted to share some casual vacation pics from Washington, DC. I had styled these culottes previously here and wanted to go casual while sightseeing in (gulp) flats. I adore these culottes – they are extremely comfy and they don’t wrinkle ever! Perfect for travel. I wanted to add a bit off fun so I threw in some pops of red with shoes, bag and lipstick. I have already rocked this outfit in Rosemary!
I am still in Washington, D.C. and it feels like I never left except for – the tons of new restaurants, buildings, new areas of town….I am really enjoying discovering the city all over again. My dreams of a townhouse in Georgetown are still going strong.
Just sharing some quick pics of a fun new maxi that I bought for drumroll….$29.99. I love the splashes of silver and the light cotton for summer. The price for value is amazing!
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I am a smidge late posting this am because I lost my sweet dog for about four hours yesterday. It was extremely traumatic! We were very fortunate he ended up at a neighbor’s house but those four hours were extremely long. I went around the neighborhood and placed missing dog signs up (which I have since taken down). Poor Sheru has been attached to my leg since he has returned and I have been loving on him non-stop.
Today I want to share my gold top restyled. I am so in love with this top! It has a very boxy shape which I love for a layed back slouchy look (see here), and I restyled it on Instagram this weekend. Which is your favorite look?
The spark is the Bottega clutch – the anemic gray with the border of lush gold. It is the inspiration for experimenting with these two colors together. I cinched in the waist, added booties and was ready for date night.
Today I am sharing the last of the Rosemary pics! Since I was there for only 24 hours I did not venture far to take the pics, but with the view off the balcony I didn’t feel the need to go any further.
I wore this to brunch at one of my favorite sports – La Crema. This is a tapas style restaurant with a split menu with savory treats on left and sweet treats on right. I can never decide which side to favor.
White on white was a huge trend in the cooler months but there is something quite refreshing about an all white outfit in summer. Just putting it on makes you feel cooler instantly. When I saw this eyelet maxi skirt I knew it would be perfect for the beach and brunch (anywhere). I added the gold accents and fun shoes and I was ready to brunch and roll.
I only had one opportunity to go to dinner while in Rosemary and colorful and bright was the way to go. Since I chose this is fitted pencil skirt, I kept things easy breezy with a loose comfy top (it is the beach after all). This amazing skirt can also be dressed up with something a bit more form fitting or dressed down further with flip floats and a T-shirt. I wanted to use the beautiful peacock blue in the skirt and bring it out a bit more so I added the similar hued shoes but coral shoes would also look amazing!
I went without any jewelry because I forgot it but the outfit is calling for a couple of long necklaces to finish off the outfit.
