Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays throughout the year and while the barbecues, days in the sun and awesome sales are a bonus, it’s so important to remember just exactly why we get to celebrate Memorial Day. Being thankful for all of those who have served our country comes first - everything else is second. And thanks to our military both who have served and are serving, we get to enjoy a fun weekend celebrating our soldiers and this great country to officially kick start summer!
Luckily in New York we're having AMAZING weather - it's so summer-like finally in the high 80's and super sunny! I love going to the beach to kick start the season, but I know how crazy it's going to be since we're having such gorgeous weather so heading out early to the beach is going to be super important - I probably should have left like, 3 days ago! ; )
Here's some of my picks for Memorial Day Weekend and some of the best sales happening and let me tell ya, there's a LOT!
What's better than bright, fun colors and patterns for the summer heat?! I've been buying clothes and accessories that are nothing but bright and it feels so good because it means that summer is finally here. There are tons of ways to go bright and not overboard - whether it's in the accessories or the details, here's my favorite ways to go bright this summer:
If there's one staple item that every woman should own, it's a good pair of shoes. Let's be honest, there really is nothing more fun than shoe shopping! There's so many different kinds of shoes to pick from for each season and even for different occasions. I'm a firm believer that adding investment pieces to your wardrobe is one of the best things you can do; the higher end bags, shoes, jewelry, etc. always last a life time and are true assets to your closet!
Some shoes are just classics and not only does having a classic shoe in your closet make it easier to get ready for the day or night but it gives you so many options and you know that you'll always have something no matter what you have planned. Here are the shoes that I firmly believe every woman should own:
Summer is all about sunny days and cool, relaxing nights and of course, fun and bright colors and patterns! Don't get me wrong I'm a huge "black is the new white" advocate but I love bright colors and accessorizing with them all season long. Mixing patterns and bright colors is fun in more than just clothing and accessories too - fun and bright indoor and outdoor decor are just as exciting and make everything more summery and fun.
The weather is finally consistently beautiful, warm and sunny and I've been finding some really exciting fun summer pieces! I'm a firm believer that living colorfully is one of the best things you can do for yourself, and as one of this season's biggest trends, here are some of my favorites:
This past Saturday, I officially graduated from college! I'm so happy that it's done - a huge weight was seriously lifted off of my shoulders by Saturday afternoon and it felt so good to be done and to know that I never have to take another final or write another essay again! I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree and majored in Business Management with a concentration in Marketing. Now that school's over (!!!), I'm so excited to enjoy the summer and move on to bigger and more exciting things.
And let's be honest here, I'm beyond glad to be DONE with that B.S.! (hopefully you get that joke... by far my favorite grad cap I've seen! ; ) Here are some of the things you should do post graduating, lessons to learn and even a fun gift guide of things to get the grads in your life:
Does anyone else love buying and trying new perfumes especially in the spring?! The newest VoxBox I received is absolutely perfect for this time of year - I've never heard of Viktor & Rolf but I'm so glad I've had the chance to now because this perfume is amazing. Adding a beautiful new scent to my collection is always exciting and especially when the packaging is this pretty!
Every season, it's so exciting to see the new things that are trending and the fun new ways to accessorize and put looks together. I feel like there's an endless amount of things that could be added to this list, and since it's only May, I know there's a long way to go when it comes to new things for summer but here are some of the best trending products I've seen so far:
