Summer Backyard

Groton Long Point, CT - Summer 2012

Life has been good! Just taking my time enjoying family, beautiful landscapes and unforgettable sunsets. Those pictures were taken yesterday in our summer home backyard. Easy breezy days ask for simple outfits, and nothing is better than denim cutoffs, mine is a high-waisted, vintage Levi's (DIY), and cropped/ light tops, this one is a 1970's vintage floral top from Artifaktori.

forgetting about everything else, just enjoying the moment!

Mix and Match for a Night Out

Groton Long Point / Mystic, CT - Summer 2012

Last night we went out for dinner at a famous Italian restaurant in Mystic, CT. So I decided to dress up a little... Mixing the polka dot dress with the printed jacket was a good way to be funky yet classy. Both pieces were made of silk and the colors matched perfectly. To bring a bit of color I choose the red belt and flower hair piece.

Styling tip: Polka dot prints are perfect for the "mix and match" look, try it with stripes, florals, geometrics or animal prints.

On Board

The Hamptons/Sag Harbor, NY - Summer 2012

Vacation Mode ON! One more beautiful day and nothing better than a boat ride to spend the day at the New Yorkers favorite destination, the Hamptons. Great restaurants, shops and art galleries. But with this amazing weather, my outfit for today is my new vintage inspired swimsuit (believe it or not) from American Apparel! Cheap and Chic!

*Local Tips: Eat in Sag Harbor, shop in East Hampton, and relax on the beach in Bridge Hampton.

Have fun!

Relax and Have Fun!

New London, CT - Summer 2012

The outfit today was all about comfort. Hubby and I got a day to explore the cute little town of New London, CT. The city is really small but has great antique shops and some of the best ice-cream that I ever had! After our shopping adventure, we went on a walk and found this amusement park, the perfect way to end our day! <3

***Happy 4th of July!***

Groton Long Point, CT- Summer 2012 

I hope everyone had as nice a day as I had today! As you may know I'm kinda obsessed with anchor stuff and nautical inspired outfits, and today was the perfect day to wear my new favorite dress from Pin Up Couture (made in the U.S.A), the "Anchor Dress" that I got at Artifaktori Vintage. Check out Artifaktori's Blog to see an amazing editorial that John and I did this week showing off the Pin Up Couture 40's inspired "Sailor Swing Dress" at the Navy Yard in Charlestown, MA.

Happy Independence Day and let's celebrate the red, white, and blue magic!

Pretty Pastels: Mint + Lilac

  Groton Long Point, CT - Summer 2012

Since Chanel showed off their amazing"ocean-inspired" Spring 2012 Collection, pastel colors are everywhere. They are taking over the neon trend from last year, however pastel and neon mixed up are still an interesting combination. For the first day of my summer vacation I choose to wear one of my favorites combinations, the high waisted shorts + cropped top. A vintage look with a modern twist, putting together the pastel combo: mint green shorts + lilac top with a touch of neon from the hawaiian printed espadrilles

Stylish, fresh and comfortable.
Happy Summer everyone!
