WHITE LACE

SHOP THE POST

Happy HUMP day! This shoot was one of the most fun ones I've done so far! Brooke and I found this fabulous "secret garden" while driving around looking for locations and I am so excited to share these pics with you. What is better than a little white dress for summer? Add lace and I'm sold! I was shocked when I saw the price of this one. My only tip when ordering is to SIZE DOWN. This style runs very big but I love the skirt part of this dress. Hides everything and is so fun to wear casually or dressed up. Check out some of my favorite LWDs of the season below!

TASSELS AND STRIPES

Hey friends! I hope your weekend was as lovely as mine! It finally stopped raining and we took advantage of every minute of sunshine! I shot the pics for this post with Luke, the baby, and my hubby Frank just a few feet away. Luke was yelling for me pretty much the whole time wondering why mommy was in the middle of the street. Its definitely a little crazy these days being a mom of two and working on the blog but at the end of the day all the chaos is worth it because I get so much out of both jobs. 

I love the earrings in this outfit and the price is so amazing at under $60!!!). I don't really wear a ton of jewelry but if I do, its almost always a fun pair of earrings. The trend has blown up this year and I love that there are so many fabulous options at every price point. Shop the post and check out all my top picks below:)

Below are some of my favorites:)

  • These sandals are so perfect for everyday and I love metallics because they go with everything!

UNDER 100 + HM

Ask and you shall receive! I've had so many requests for an under $100 post with easy to shop pieces that can be returned...so without further ado...I hope you like my first one! I usually always incorporate this price point into my style guides but moving forward I'm going to devote some of my Lust Lists to it as well. I love these looks because they're all styled back to shorts. If I'm not in a dress during the summer you can usually find me in shorts and I'm looking to revamp that part of my closet. Many of my clients are scared of high-wasted shorts but fall in love once I force (gently!) them to try them on. Apres baby they will be your best friend! Trust me:)

NEUTRAL SPRING

Is it Friday yet? Monday was my first solo day with Luke (2yrs and 4 months) and baby Beau (14 days) and I'm not going to lie, it was tough! But as the week has progressed its definitely gotten easier and relief from my sister yesterday was key. I have so much respect and admiration for my friends who stay at home...especially with multiple children! Even if you have help it is a non-stop 24/7 job that can often be thankless. BUT, one thing is for sure - motherhood is the most rewarding job I will ever have! 

I loved creating this week's Lust List. I've had my eye on this bike for a while now and it seems as though the company may be going out of business. They're now selling exclusively through Amazon and the bikes are half the price! This top is super pretty and perfect for Spring/Summer. If you're like me and love to wear "sets", you can also get these matching shorts and wear together for a chic day to night look. 

I've been looking for the perfect outdoor placemats for a while. I really wanted the circular rattan ones but hoped to find something with a little more pattern. I linked these below which I just ordered and will let you know how they are! Love these too:) Use code: SUMMERHOME for FREE shipping!

STEAL VS. SPLURGE

Ok so I normally wouldn't do two steal vs. splurge posts so close together but I had to share this with you guys! How similar are these tops??? The SPLURGE version is from one of my favorite brands and I was shocked to find another so similar for under $50! This is such an easy look for day or night and perfect for a weekend gathering with friends. The clutch I linked is also under $50 and as you know straw bags and clutches are the hottest trend right now.

MOTHER'S DAY BRUNCH

It feels so good to be back! I'm not going to lie, creating this post took me a LONG time! I tried to find time in between feedings, naps, and visitors to peruse the internet for the perfect pieces. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I can never hit the post button until things are just right. I know things will get easier and its been less than a week since baby Beau was born but it sure feels good to get back in the saddle so to speak!

This post is a real mix of high/low pieces. I ordered this gray lace dress for myself and can't wait for it to arrive. It was under $50!!! It also comes in white. Use code GFM20 for an extra 20% off for Mother's Day (ends May 10th). I also love all the earrings in this post. Statement earrings are everywhere this season and whether you're spending a little or making an investment you can't go wrong with any of these.

SPLURGE earrings // dress // handbag // shoes

So I'm loving the earring trend right now and the best part is there are so many affordable options out there. Shopbop and Anthropologie are my favorite "go-to's" for the perfect pair right now. I bought these recently and I know I'll wear them all Spring/Summer. I LOVE these too in both colors! Paired with the perfect white dress and pretty sandals you can't go wrong. When I was searching for dresses I found this one for under $175 and had to order it. I've noticed that Anthropologie tends to sell out of small sizes pretty quickly but this one just hit the site and is fully stocked! Here is another pretty one from the same brand but the sizes are much more limited. 

PS You may have noticed the shopping widget below! You can now shop my posts in this super easy way and I also have a shopping page in the works!

STONE BARNS

BLUE HILL FARM

SO its been killing me that I haven't been able to shoot any fun Spring outfits for you guys! My last official day of work was yesterday and now its time to rest up and prepare for baby number 2! Although I really have no idea what to expect, I hope I'll be able to get right back to blogging and shooting because it miss I so much right now! 

Anyone who followed me on Instagram last summer knows that one of my favorite places to go on a sunny day is "the farm". I grew up only 10 minutes from the Rockefeller preserve in Westechester, NY and walking the trails became a tradition for me and my family. In the last 10 years it has transformed into a working farm, world renowned restaurant, and market. Recently Blue Hill (the restaurant) was rated number 11 in the world! Its a true culinary experience and perfect for celebrating a special occasion! BUT if you're just looking for a fun place to take the kids on a Saturday like we are, visit the grounds and be transported to the English countryside.  They have lots of activities scheduled during the weekends and we always make our way to the grain bar for lunch or a coffee (make sure you try the chocolate chip spelt cookies!).

HOW TO WEAR

I love this look! As separates or worn together the pajama look is super chic for day or night. I styled silk pajama bottoms a lot this winter for clients wanting an elegant but casual evening look. We always paired it back to a light cashmere sweater. This pant from JCrew is a STEAL! I bought them before they went on sale but they're almost half the price now:) I'm going to live in them with a white T and denim jacket. 

How amazing are these tops though! And they can be purchased at any price point. I love this one from ASOS. This one is a bit of a splurge but I love the idea of an optional belt. This is such a great look for a Spring day shopping in the city, meeting girlfriends for lunch, or throw on a chic pair of earrings and take it into evening with a jeweled clutch.

THE DRESS ADDRESS

SHOP THE POST

As many of you saw on social media last week, I had the privilege of partnering with Lord & Taylor for Charity Day and hosting their Dress Address Fashion Show on Saturday. Their store in Stamford, CT was recently renovated and it is BEAUTIFUL! From their new restaurant to their super chic beauty floor, the store offers a luxury experience that made me feel like I was in New York City. The fashion show looks were curated by the in-house stylists who offer personalized consultations by appointment. The At Your Service team led by fashion veteran Kendra Porter is a phenomenal resource for anyone seeking wardrobe guidance in-store or online. Lord & Taylor is definetly the "dress address". If you're in the CT and have a special occasion this should be your first stop! See more of my top picks below (BTW my dress was not maternity and with the sale was under $150)!

Top Dress Picks

This one is similar to the lace one I wore but with a plunging neckline and the white is ON SALE! This style is so pretty and it looks like it should be four times the price. Perfect for Easter, graduations, and showers...I think I may pick it up for my niece's communion. BLACK TIE! Check out this gorgeous Jill Stuart gown. To me, if you like off-the-shoulder, this is the epitome of the perfect cocktail/black tie dress. I had never heard of this brand but this dress is so pretty and versatile! Dress it up with a heel or down with a pair of scrappy flat sandals.

SPRING TREND

look two top // skirt // shoes

look three dress // belt // shoes

Hey guys! are you ready for Spring yet? This post started out as a Lust List but I felt like it was too much gingham and I wanted to focus more on styling the pieces rather than just giving you my fav picks. Gingham has always been a classic and considered a little preppy, but this year it's taken on a little more edge. I couldn't fit this coat in but its so cute and a steal at under $150. This top is EVERYTHING!!! It has a lot going on but it works! Pair it back to white denim shorts or a maxi skirt and throw on a fun neutral earring. 

Dresses are probably one of the easiest ways to rock this trend. I think I may have to grab this one from Solid and Striped. Its so easy to throw on over a bikini on vacation or where around town for lunch and errands. And its also under $150! Gingham doesn't have to just be blue....I love this yellow dress and this neutral one! Need help with this trend? Message me!
