Bikini: Burberry, Shirt: Burberry, Sunnies: Burberry

We’re headed to Spain tonight! I haven’t been away on vacation since I was pregnant back in January so I couldn’t be happier to get away and explore a new country. Unfortunately, as much as I’m excited to travel, I’m dreading leaving the baby. It will be the longest period of time I’ve been away from Ruby so I don’t know how to feel about this right now. I’m excited but of course guilty and sad.. who knew planning a vacation could cause so much anxiety! I need a separate vacation probably even after this one.. with Ruby & Marget that time around. :)

Before we head out, I wanted to share one of my shoots out East that was inspired from the Burberry Poolside collection. What’s more classic British luxury fashion than Burberry? I loved this chic simple white bikini that had the contrast trademark Burberry check lining, paired with the Heart Print Button-Up as a cover-up. I chose to mix the prints since the plaid on the bathing suit was so subtle and the black and white contrast ended up looking really great together! These beige sunglasses were the perfect accessory to give it that British mod final touch. Now if I can only get my accent down, I’ll be good to go! Maybe we’ll just have to make a pit stop in London on our way back. Can’t wait to share with you everything on our travels this week, stay tuned!

A few of my other favorite Burberry picks:

Floral Print Cotton Kaftan

Striped Belt Cotton Dress

Tasselled Leather Espadrilles

Canvas Check Leather Sandals

Cat Eye Sunglasses

Check Round Frame Sunglasses

Check Trim Triangle Bikini | Black

Heart Print Linen Shirt | White

Studded Leather and House Check Espadrille Sandals

Dress: Free People / Shoes: Paul Andrew / Bag: Cuyana

It’s been so hot here in the city! It definitely makes it difficult picking out an outfit to wear because ideally, I want to be wearing as little as possible. This means short little dresses all day, every day. While putting together this look, I started picking accessories that were blush and beige tones and realized the complete look screamed the 70’s: The flared sleeves, the print on the dress, the tasseled wedges, the big round sunnies, and the suede saddle bag!

I recently discovered Cuyana for their classic, clean lined handbags. I especially loved the shape of The Saddle Bag, and had to have it when it was available in this beautiful blush suede color. It’s the perfect everyday bag that is sophisticated and versatile. Is this not the perfect color for multiple seasons? It can work for summer and you can still carry it into the fall to soften up your autumn wardrobe palette. It was so much fun shooting with this 70’s vibe in mind – I love this decade in fashion and can’t wait until it’s cooled down so I can finally wear my wide flared denim!

This post is in partnership with Cuyana.

The Biggest Sale of the Year!

Does any one else just go through sites and start adding everything they like into their cart? GUILTY. I started doing it when I looked through the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and wanted to share some of my favorites with you all.. I didn’t end up buying everything but I definitely did some damage. Share with me what you end up purchasing from the sale – there are some great finds still available!

I may be the only person that’s ever said this, but I actually enjoy shaving my legs! It’s part of my whole bath routine which is my down time, where I can fully relax and have quiet time to myself after a long day. I have this entire process I’ve been doing for years now where I run my bath, apply a face mask (sometimes a hair mask too), and exfoliate my entire body. Once I wash off the exfoliation, I shave my legs using my favorite shaving cream, eos Shave Cream. I’ve been using their moisturizers for a while now and love how all their products leave my skin. I never thought that a shaving cream would really make a difference to my skin, but after using this non-foaming cream, I can’t imagine using anything else.

Unfortunately, the down side is that I don’t have my bath time as often as I would like anymore! Well, now it’s more spent on Ruby’s bath time, which I can’t complain about. However, there are times when I realized I haven’t shaved under my arms in a few days. The eos Shaving Cream is perfect because you can shave both wet or dry without worrying about any of those little razor bumps. It’s basically been a lifesaver for those moments when I am running out of the house in a sleeveless dress. I would definitely add this to my list for Summer Essentials, as well as New Mom Must-Haves!

Pants: J BRAND / Shoes: Aquazzura / Top: Caroline Consta (in blue, in red) / Bag: Valentino / Sunnies: Stella McCartney

I am so excited right now that I’m posting an outfit. I haven’t been able to shoot outfits over the Summer since I’m always back and forth. I have lots of new goodies though that I want to shoot and style and this top is one of them! I made a trip to East Hampton with Ruby and Marget and Marget picked out this top for me haha. I know it’s easy to find an off the shoulder top anywhere but this one felt a little more special to me. I paired it with my scuba material ankle length trousers and these fun Aquazzura pumps that I got 40% off!

We’re heading back to the haunted Hampton house this evening for the weekend, I’ll keep you guys posted on what goes on via snap! Love you guys!
