The brand seems to be constantly evolving on the brink of fashion trends, while still maintaining a classic/timeless aesthetic – rendering the high price tags investment worthy!  I started following the brand on instagram a few months back, and while the dazzling array of jewels is mesmerizing, I was completely smitten with Danielle Snyder and Jodie Snyder Morel’s insane style! I quickly started following the sister duo on instagram (here and here), and to say I’m smitten is a bit of an understatement – these girls rock! A little boho-chic, a little Americana Western, a little 90’s grunge – and completely girl crush worthy!

I’m completely obsessed with these beauties – shop more of my favorites below…

Get The Look • Easy Breezy

{click on the + symbols to take you directly to the product}

My job affords me the opportunity to dress pretty casually on most days, and in the summer this usually entails a breezy dress, or maxi skirt and simple tank. Since I hate being cold, I always have a light summer scarf and little denim jacket or vest with me (or in my car); which really comes in handy when walking into those overly air-conditioned stores and restaurants – why they insist on pumping their air conditioners into the low 60°’s is beyond me?!

Do you have a summer uniform of sorts?

Summer Traditions • Picnics & Fireworks

One of the things I love most about living so close to the beach are the weekly firework shows during the summer months – it’s always a celebration! Billy and I usually pack up dinner in our picnic basket, and head down to the beach early to ensure prime real estate!

What are some of your favorite summer traditions?

As much as I love playing around with different fashion trends, I tend to be a creature of habit, and when I find something I love I wear it constantly! I fell in love with the FP cardigan pictured above this past spring, and after dropping a few subtle hints (in the form of daily emails, ha!), Billy “surprised” me with it for my birthday. I wore it all Spring long, and it has since made it’s way into my summer wardrobe, being the perfect lightweight sweater for chilly nights by the beach or draped over a bikini. I’m quite sure it will accompany me into fall as well!

Are there any items in your closet you wear constantly?

Currently Coveting • Neons

While my relatively fair complexion isn’t typically complimentary to large doses of neon, my week off treated me to a little glow, and the brightly colored hues have been on the top of my wish list lately! While I’m not going to make it a regular staple in my closet or home, I think a few well placed pops would be really fun!

Happy Friday! Any fun weekend plans?

Currently Inspired By • Ice Cream Parlor hues

Isn’t it funny how one particular hue can inspire you? Right now ice cream parlor tones by way of dusty pinks and mint greens are really intriguing me! So much so, I spent 2+ hours last night in search of more inspiration, down the rabbit hole and along a windy road – otherwise known as Pinterest. Funny thing is, pastels aren’t typically my thing, as I usually gravitate towards more jewel-tone shades. Maybe it’s that the weather has finally warmed up and everyone seems to have a slight glow from a little dose of much needed Vitamin D, making the shades so complimentary?! I think that caftan may need to make way into my closet!

Packing List • The Hamptons

We’re heading out East next week and what to pack is already on my mind. As much as I adore traveling, packing isn’t one of my fortes and typically leads to an unnecessary dose of stress due to procrastination and packing WAY too much! I did much better on our last trip, and found that a little preparation and sticking to a strict color combo – blue, white and a pop of pink for this trip – really paid off. The Hamptons is super casual for the most part, so a pair of statement sandals, perfectly distressed cutoffs (for a steal!), bikinis and few breezy dresses & rompers (that can preform double duty from the beach to dinner) is really all I need!

I picked up Provence, 1970 a few weeks ago and am really excited to dig in! Any other reading recommendations?

Style Profile • Shibori

Having been born in the 80’s, tie-dye automatically brings negative connotations to mind in the form of crayon box color combos and trippy dancing bears. So when it started appearing on the runways and in home lines I couldn’t help but resist! But then shibori worked it’s way into my vocabulary – an ancient Janpanese method of dying fabric with a pattern by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, compressing or capping it* – very similar to tie-dying. But it sounds so much more chic, and doesn’t remotely bring back unwanted memories of Spencer’s Gifts psychedelic offerings! 

Traditionally, shibori is known for it’s distinct indigo and white pattern (which I love – surprise, surprise!), but am also rather smitten with with both the warmer hues and neutral palettes! What’s your take on the pattern?
