Cold Shoulder Dress

This past weekend I visited Southampton for the first time. It was gorgeous, and I was able to see a beautifully designed and landscaped home from the architecture firm that my good friend Helene works for! I have included pictures of the house in this post, because it was so exquisite, and it made for a pretty spectacular backdrop. I wore one of my new favorite red “cold shoulder” dresses, as this style is so fun and is definitely trending now. I like this dress because it’s a solid base that you can dress up or down. Also, I paid less than $20 for it (I found it on a major sale). I paired the dress with my favorite new “Hamptons” sandals (appropriately named) and some lovely gold geometric earrings, which were a subtle match with these new gold-top cat-eye sunglasses.

Enjoy the pics, and thank you to my lovely friend Helene!! I always have a blast with her, and she takes some pretty nice photos, too. Xo

Raincoat Weather

We have had quite a bit of spring and early summer rain here in NYC. I picked up this fun watercolor raincoat a few years ago, and I have gotten a lot of use from it. Besides the fact that it’s functional, it’s a statement piece in itself and I get loads of complements on it. I am not sure I would classify a statement raincoat as a closet staple, but I have worn it a lot (and it hasn’t gone out of style in a few years). It’s nice to look polished- especially in the rain! Due to the fact that his coat is a statement piece, I paired it with neutrals: lace up pointed toe flats, a white lace dress, and a sparkly necklace. The lace dress is also great for work, and raincoats are generally useful when traveling, too.

It’s my college 5 year reunion this weekend, so hopefully I won’t be needing this raincoat!
