Lilly iPhone Charger!!

So I had no idea that Lilly made an iPhone charger.... Ummm SOLD! Talk about an easy way to find the cord in the bottom of your handbag... even better, you'll always be able to tell your charger apart! Have a fabulous day!

Country Squire Haberdashery: Derby Top

This is the first post from my new Mac! I had never had a Mac before and I am already absolutely loving it! Who knew it had such good speakers all on its own (I know... I'm a little late to the game)?! Any tips/tricks, I would love to know! The thing I am having most trouble with is organizing my files.





It's always a good mail day when a Country Squire Haberdashery box shows up on my doorstep. I mean is this derby top not the cutest? The derby is just about a month away and I cannot wait to wear this top for the occasion! It fits true to size and the quality is top notch. 

I wore this top for an afternoon at the Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History. The Carnegie was the first museum of modern art in the country-- but more on that in another post-- it deserves its own (for now, see pics on Summer Wind Instagram)! 

Post-museum I went to drinks, dinner and then out-- this outfit worked seamlessly transitioning from day to night. Greg and Mitch were having a 'who wore it better' discussion about who wore the plaid shirt better... I told them I'd let Summer Wind readers be the judge, ha! 

CSH is totally a Summer Wind favorite. They carry so many of my favorite brands that are essential to being well dressed in the summer months, especially Lilly + Vineyard Vines. 

To place your CSH order, check out their online shop or Facebook page, or give Kyle a call (best customer service ever). 954-776-5940. Have a fabulous day!

Suit Style

 
It's no secret I love men's wear repurposed or reinvented for women. When I saw E! post this on Twitter, I knew I had to bookmark the photo. All three of these women look stunning in their suits.
 
I am so glad that I don't have to wear a suit to work everyday, but there are times when I have to wear one. I love how tailored and crisp each piece is in the above photo. So here's my question, do you have a perfect suit? Who makes yours?
 
I think the key ingredient in looking fabulous in a suit (or any piece of clothing) is how well it is tailored for your body. I have a fabulous tailor and work with him often to get my wardrobe fitted for my body. I have yet to find the perfect suit, though! Share your sources! Have a fabulous day!

Fashionable Friends


 
 
Amanda: Vest/ Necklace
 
Eugenia: Vest/ Necklace (similar)/ Shirt
 
Dana:  Sunnies (similar)/ Pants (similar)
I think one of the best things about my friends is that we all have different tastes and style. I shot a few of these when we were atop my friend's apartment. Talk about a great roof!
 
Please excuse me if I am not as quick to respond to e-mails and slow with blogging-- I had a major computer mishap and had my hard drive crash and completely wiped. Needless to say, I am computer-less and am currently blogging on my mom's computer. I had some cute outfit posts planned, too, but bye bye photos. :(
 
Thank goodness I had backed up all of my documents through Dropbox, though! I guess that's the silver lining in all of this considering I lost all of my photos and music from the last few months. It's my fault that I wasn't backing up my files as frequently as I should. But the loss of all my photos and music is still super depressing. Not going to lie, I may have had a total breakdown earlier in the week. But such is life, right?
 
I am currently deciding whether I want to repair my current computer or get a new one-- thoughts/suggestions from anyone computer savvy would be appreciated! Have a fabulous day!
 
Yours,

Barrington Gifts Tote









Blazer/ Tank/ Denim (best jeans ever)/ Shoes/ Sunglasses/ Tote

To say I am obsessed with everything on Barrington's site is an understatement. This great tote is just the tip of the iceberg! I've been using it for travel, work and as my everyday bag. It is roomy with tons of pockets and definitely great quality. Plus, I love anything with my initials ;). 

Graduation season is right around the corner and this tote would make the perfect gift for any high school or college graduate. I am eyeing this desktop cell phone holder... I think it would just make my nightstand look prettier and more organized! 

Also, you are able to customize the totes in so many different designs and colors. I went with the simple tan check so it would go with most everything, but I love the idea of getting the bag in school colors! 

See a few of my favorites above. Have a fabulous day!

Some Things...


I have been binge watching The Wonder Years on Netflix. Seriously, you need to go watch it. I forgot how awesome it was... so many little life lessons (this article has some great quotes from the show... I love #1). 
Remember how I was going to watch Frozen? I LOVED it!! Such a cute movie-- very Broadway-esque and very well done. I also love that it is about sisters... cCm and I were texting back and forth deciding who was Anna and who was Elsa... it's still been undecided.  
Remember how I wrote about my sleeping issue? Well... it's getting... better. But I still have yet to go Sunday-Thursday getting into bed before 11pm. I'm working on it...
I am crazy about this peplum top. Talk about a good party top! 

I'm pumped for the Halston and Warhol: Silver and Suede exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum. My parents just won me tickets from a benefit they attended. I'm also excited to take a pic on the famous couch... Jay Z took a pic when he was in Pittsburgh last time.. pretty cool. 

Did you catch Friday's post with the 15% off code? Use SUMMERWIND at checkout! 


I am obsessed with Timeflies. It's a duo that covers a bunch of songs but also has a bunch of their own stuff, and one of the guys, Rob, is soooo cute. It's definitely good workout music. I'm also obsessed with this song-- the music video is soooooo Robert Palmer only the genders are reversed.. semi weird, but hey, I think Miley takes the cake for weird music videos. Catchy, nonetheless. 

What have you been loving lately? Have a fabulous day!

Manhattan Apartment Tour

Eugenia's Bedroom


Their amazing view!

Eugenia has an Italian Terrible Towel hanging above her door. Um, awesome. 
I love Amanda's navy, white and orange color scheme. 

I love their yellow couch! It adds such a pop of color and really brightens up the space! 

Eugenia basically has the best closet (and style) in the entire world. 

I visited my girlfriends' apartment last weekend and thought I'd snapped some photos because they have only been there for a few months and it is already gorgeous! As most know, NYC apartments are small, but Amanda and Eugenia's apartment is actually quite spacious for the city's standards. Nonetheless they have really made use of the space. Not to mention, they're Pittsburgh girls and I love that they have little Pittsburgh touches throughout the apartment. 

I have also dubbed Eugenia's giant mirror 'the best selfie mirror ever'... on the hunt for my own, now! It also makes her bedroom feel even larger! Thanks for a fun weekend Amanda and Eugenia! Have a fabulous day!
Yours,
