The Bucket Bag

The premier bucket bag by Mansur Gavriel. Hard to get your hands on one. I love that you can choose the interior color. I would definitely get the bright blue. After seeing my friend with one it is now on my lust list.

Such a perfect bag for the fall.

Here are some other options to check out.

Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

The Lilly Pulitzer summer sale is live through tomorrow. Free shipping on all orders.
I bought a pair of the beach linen pants. Happy Shopping!

Friday, August 14, 2015


The forecast for the weekend looks beautiful. I hope I make it to Tod's Point for some beachin'. A few suggestions for your beach bag... I won't entirely wish the summer away for fall clothes. 

Victoria's Secret Closeup Halter/Foldover Bikini: I saw this suit on Victoria Secret's Instagram and had to have it. The color is amazing. I need a bikini top hat adds a little umph if you know what I mean... based on the reviews of this style women of all sizes like the support it offers.

Turkish T Sorbet Towel: I've seen these towels at my favorite boutiques on the Vineyard and Cape. You can wear as a scarf, wrap and use as a towel. On my wishlist!

The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand: I kicked off the summer reading this Nantucket novel. The author spent her summers on Cape Cod - here's a great piece she wrote on "The Summer Rules" for Redbook.

Bare Republic Suncreen: This natural line of sunscreens are sold exclusively at Target and made by the popular (pricey) brand Coola. I have been using the face version all summer. (I love the Coola Vanilla Peppermint lip balm from Sephora.)

Ray Ban Aviators: The thin metal frame is my favorite for the beach.

The Wet Brush: The worst is when you forget your brush at the beach. This is made especially to comb through wet hair I have a mini version that I keep in my beach bag. Also sold at Target or be on the lookout at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls as I've seen them there too.

Have a great weekend!

Need, Need, Need.

I've been suckered into the current J. Crew Shop More Sale. 25% off $200 and 30% off $300+. I'd say these three are all neutral and needed.

This and That

green & tonic is a local spot that I love to go for a pick me up after the gym. I'd go broke if I made their juices and smoothies a habit but darn they are good!

If you're not from my area but happen to find yourself traveling through Connecticut on I95 this summer, skip the highway service plaza and take a quick pitstop off Exit 11 for green & tonic in Darien. So many healthy options to go. I always wish I knew places conveniently off the highway besides Starbucks and D&D so hoping a reader may benefit from this tip.

Earrings: Kendra Scott. Dress: Joie (available here and here). 

I wear stud earrings 99% of the time but was adventurous the other week and broke out these Kendra Scott Danielle Earrings (circa 2012 still on trend) for a celebratory dinner in the city. It was my friend Danielle's birthday and I gave her a pair too! I am thinking about getting them in another color for fall... so many choices and obviously the style has been holding strong.

Attention Fairfield County & Manhattan: There is a deal on Gilt City for the Town & Country Experience at The East Coast Open, an upcoming three match series at the Greenwich Polo Club. This is a good option if you are taking the train from Manhattan and Ubering to the match... no need to worry about lugging chairs and your picnic since you can watch the game, eat and drink under their tent.

That's all I've got for now. Ciao!

Wicked Tuna

Shirt: Vineyard Vines Harbor Shirt. Sunglasses: Burberry.

Ted caught this guy off the Vineyard last weekend. Sushi, anyone?

He wore his new Vineyard Vines Harbor Shirt, courtesy of moi. If you have a fisherman in your life, this is a great gift to keep in mind. It's water resistant, lightweight, lined with mesh and has a vented back. He said it dried very quickly and was breathable.
