beach bags.

it's beach season! everyone needs a beach bag (or pool bag) to stash their towel, sunscreen, book, magazine, etc. so you might as wall make it a cool one. here's some of my favorites . . . 

bonus - these bags are cool enough to go from a day at the beach or pool to happy hour.

happy shopping!

p.s. i'm headed to providence, rhode island to visit my sister, meg, tomorrow morning. i've never been so i'm excited to explore . . . follow along on instagram

coney island.

this was in back april . . . my first real trip to coney island (my  first non-real trip was when i ran the brooklyn half marathon years ago and it ended on the boardwalk). we rode our bikes there on a perfect spring day, got beers on the boardwalk, people watched and rode the cyclone roller-coaster. the perfect coney island day. i wore my awesome nike poncho that i could totally live in and of course my nike frees (similar). if you've never been to coney island, i suggest putting on your to-do list.

happy friday!

summer must-haves.

my summer must-haves . . .

1. rayban sunglasses: i don't leave the house without sunglasses. wayfarers are classic and my go-to shades.
2. beautycounter lipstick: this pink color goes with everything and it's like putting on chapstick. plus, it's non-toxic.
3. white birkenstocks: i lived in my tan birkenstocks last summer and have had these on heavy rotation already. 
4. samudra pouch (similar): i love pouches - they're the perfect size for brunches, dinners and happy hours.
5. levi's jean shorts: i pretty much live in these all summer. 
6. yankee hat: i love hats and this one goes easily with my mostly neutral wardrobe.
7. beautycounter sunscreen: i always put on sunscreen when i'll be out in the sun. bonus: this one is non-toxic
8. slouchy tanks: so easy to throw on with shorts.

summer inspiration.

it's june! i love summer. warm weather, longer days, more stuff to do, a new style .... my inspiration for summer dressing is very simple and very ..... white. white is completely classic - it never goes out of style. and it's cool and breezy for the hot and humid summers we get in nyc. with some denim, grey and black mixed in, i'll be ready for brunches, bike rides, outdoor dinners and hanging at the park. 

cheers to the summer!!
