I have been using these a lot lately. They're less pricey than the Beats headphones but deliver a really great sound. I love flying with them, but also use them at my desk while I work. Check out my latest playlist, here.
Since there is a new Tory Burch store that just opened in Pittsburgh (read all about it here) I'm glad I get to try out a lot of their stuff! I'm in love with their Minnie travel flat. These are great to throw into a tote. I always always always carry a pair of flats/sandals with me when I wear heels to work and these are a really great option.
The red hanger sales is one of my favorites of the year! The sale is amazing and you can score things like this dress (last seen here) for well under $100 and this wicker clutch for under $60!
So not within my budget whatsoever, but I die over this blue and white print inspired from gorgeous tiles. I'll take the entire collection, and then I'd like to jet off to Mykonos. The bathing suit is TDF, too. One can dream.
If you aren't a Donald Roberston fan, I don't know where you've been. He is my absolute favorite artist. I've loved him ever since he designed the runway for Lisa Perry with his famous gaffer tape a few years ago. This is his first book, which is aimed at children, that comes out in August. I've had mine pre-odered since April. I'm not kidding when I say obsessed. I think it will make for a conversation starting coffee table book... aka people will ask why I have a children's book. Plus, his twin toddlers are hands down the cutest children I have ever seen. I die from cuteness every time I check out his Instagram (he's a must follow). In other Drawbertson news, I feel very 'adult' because I ordered my first piece of 'legit' artwork.. ok so it's not that legit, it's a signed and numbered print. I'm beyond excited about it and already thinking about all of the framing possibilities... so this is what being an adult is like, huh? I don't mind it! PS. if you're not familiar with Donald, he co-founded Mac (the makeup) and helped to launch Marie Claire and now works for Smashbox.
Have you heard of this site before? If you haven't you must pay a visit. It's essentially, a high end online consignment store. It has anything and everything you could want and it's not sketchy like eBay. I'd really love to add another Hermes scarf to my collection (I want to frame one of my older ones!) and this is the site to do it. They're often deeply discounted!
This is hands down the best stuff ever. I shave my legs with it every shower and it's better than any shaving cream. It is so moisturizing and makes it (almost) pleasant when shaving my legs. I buy the refill which saves money and waste... it's a little pricey, but to me, it's worth every penny.
This blush leather bucket bag is an under $200 version of Mansur Gavriel's famed bucket bag. I love this blush shade and think it would work well into the fall paired with creams, tans, navys and blacks.
If you haven't heard about this yet, you can learn more here, but I'll be in attendance and am super excited! For those in Pittsburgh, I hope to see you there-- $25 for those under 30 which includes access to the party and an open bar. Yesss! Use discount code 'ASTOUNDING' for $5 off!

First of all, Happy July! Seriously, how is it July already? We are halfway through the summer and I can't believe it. Is it flying by for anyone else?! Anyway, this is the perfect dress to show off for the first day of July!
Second of all, taking photos while it's majorly hot is a challenge with ice cream. Let's just say, ice cream in photos is a one time thing.... to save from making a mess and so I don't have to look at my ice cream for a while until I can actually start to eat it. But boy was it good.
This dress is a favorite of mine this summer. I've worn it to brunch, to a bridal shower, running errands, and to work. It's kind of a 'one dress, any event' kind of thing... which I love. It's also now on sale. The fabric is a cotton sateen, so while it's casual, you can definitely dress it up. I wear it with Jacks sometimes, but also think it looks nice with heeled sandals or wedges like in the photos above.
This straw tote is massive and under $40! Definitely large enough to tote all of your pool and beach essentials. It's also great for carrying when you need a sweater and a change of shoes (aka what I needed when this was photographed). Have a fabulous day!

This embroidered dress is one of my favorites of the summer. It's beyond comfortable for those scorching hot days and compliments a tan well!
I wore this for an afternoon downtown a few weeks ago and have been wearing this dress non stop. It also looks really cute with wedges and a straw clutch for a dressier look, but my preference is wearing it very casual like in the photos above.
One of the major selling points of this dress is that I can machine wash it and quickly run an iron over it and it's good to go... because let's be honest, machine washable is important to me when I wear white.
And as always, I'm rocking my Jacks. This pair has about had it as I've almost worn through the soles, but I've had a good run in these sandals. It's time to make some new adventures in a new pair. I have so many pairs of Jacks, but if you are a first timer, I fully suggest the gold. They're slightly dressier than the colored sandals and they match absolutely everything! Have a fabulous day!
