Date NighT (OR DAY) APPROVED

Downtown LA

Nothing eases the pain of getting ready for date night like having an arsenal of go-to outfits to choose from. Whether it’s a classic jean and tank combo or a mini dress and heels, I find that as the season nears the finish line, extra outfit inspo is even more important. That’s why today, I am sharing a dress that I wore to dinner downtown the other night. With romantic lace and structured fit, this little white dress is an upgrade from your traditional picnic party variety.

That being said, I easily transitioned from day to night by keeping my shoes comfy and adding/removing my sun hat. This dress from Chicwish is beautiful, timeless and works well for pretty much any summer date. What are some of your go-to date night (or day) outfits right now?

A LITTLE BIT OF HOME

The Grove 

Every time I visit New England in the summer, I fall in love with it again. The smaller, quainter beaches, the smell of the marshes, and those humid nights remind me that I'm home. 

I took a quick trip back there this past weekend and spent time with my family between Newburyport and Wingersheek Beach. We had some cookouts, I collected shells with my niece in the tide pools, and aside from the ride home from Logan airport, I saw very little traffic. It was refreshing. And while I still took far too many photos and videos (I am an over-documenter for sure), it feels like a place that I can unplug. Whether it's a favorite hiking trail or a weekend trip across the country, I think it's really important to find time to recharge. 

Today's outfit isn't from my days back east, mostly because I have tried to limit my blogging on trips like this, but it's perfectly classic and feels inspired by my love of New England. From the stripes to the midi length, it just screams Martha's Vineyard. I love wearing it because it feels like a little piece of home.

The Wrap Dress

Downtown Los Angeles, CA

IMG_5020.jpg

I am dress obsessed. Some of you have actually commented on how many and how often (every post lately) I've been wearing them but I just can't get enough. From flowy maxis to cocktail cuts, I really love them all. And today, I'm sharing why the wrap dress may be at the top of my list. 

Not only are wrap dresses flattering on every woman, but they are also really versatile. The cinched waistline is ideal for creating a beautiful figure AND for expanding when you eat a bit too much pizza (like I did every day in Italy!) This printed beauty from Chicwish is great for museum hopping/office days/brunch with the girls or exploring a new city. For a night on the town, easily dress it up with slingback heels and a clutch. I love the feminine sleeves and pretty pink shades, too. Here I paired it with my new slip-on sneakers from Vionic (which are the comfiest shoes on the planet) and it made a day of walking around the city even more fun.
