What I’ve Bought This Summer To Wear In The City and At The Ocean

Every year I look forward to purchasing summer clothing just as much as I anticipate the long hot days and endless summer nights.

Below are 20 items I’ve recently bought to wear in the city and at the ocean.    1. Lost + Wander sundress. An asymmetrical hem, a delicate floral pattern, and a flattering empire waist.

Our Swimsuit Guide is Finally Here! See Our Favorites for 2021 + What We Love About Them

Summer is officially upon us and that means long days spent lounging at the beach or by the pool. With that comes shopping for new swim apparel. We’ve created our annual swimsuit guide that’s filled with flattering one piece swimsuits and bikinis in various colors, patterns, and textures (think tie-dye, marble, space dye, metallics, stripes, and more).

The Athletic Apparel I Can’t Get Enough Of

While I’ve recently jumped back into working out full time and rejoined a gym (after taking almost a year off), there were a few things I needed in terms of athletic apparel. The week before I planned to return, I went through my drawer where I keep all my gym clothes. As I sorted through my leggings, shorts, and tops, I realized most of it was over a year old and looked like it had been through a lot. I turned to one of my go-to brands and stocked up on a few essentials, which I’ve highlighted below. There’s just something about getting new workoutRead More →

Winter Coat Guide: 36 Styles I’m Loving This Season

One of the best things about moving back to the East Coast is being able to purchase cold weather clothing and accessories and actually wear them more than a few times each year. When I lived in L.A. I’d vacation here for a few weeks in December. Immediately upon returning to the California sunshine and winters of 75 degrees or warmer my cold weather clothing got pushed to the back of my closet. As I created this winter coat guide filled with my favorite picks, I was sure to include a variety of styles, colors, textures, and price points. Here are 36 coats that willRead More →

My Favorite Looks So Far This Year

For pretty much the first half of 2020 my daily attire consisted of loungewear and athleisure. Anytime I shopped, I found myself looking for comfy sweats, hoodies, and sweaters since I was trying to leave my apartment as little as possible. Then, this spring, when more things began opening up, I started planning my trip out to the East Coast. I decided I had enough of the unofficial Covid lounge attire and planned my wardrobe as if we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic, which I’ve continued to do for autumn and the upcoming winter months. My thought process is this: just because thereRead More →

A Look Inside My Beach Tote

In the middle of July I flew from Los Angeles to the East Coast because my parents were buying a beach house at the Connecticut shoreline. Due to Covid-19, their closing date kept getting pushed back making the wait seem like forever. Fast forward a month later and we’ve finally moved in. In between shopping for my bedroom and planning my dad’s birthday party, I’ve been stocking up on necessities that I’ll be using while I spend the rest of the summer at the beach. Here are 15 items that I’m keeping inside my beach tote.  Picnic Tote bag | Ban.do, $34.95 From the brightRead More →

Things have changed dramatically and so many of us have had to make changes to our summer arrangements.

Everything I’m Eyeing For My Summer at The Shore

Last year my family and I restarted the tradition of spending time at the Connecticut shore. This was a place that I grew up going to each summer along with generations of family members before me (you can read about my childhood memories and why it’s so special here). Prior to last year, since I moved to Los Angeles, I had only been back there once in 2013. After our last trip we realized how much we missed the beach, so my parents recently purchased a beach house on the water. This summer, I’ll be heading to Westbrook and spending the rest of the seasonRead More →
