2019 Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales

Petite Plum nightgown & romper. Gap Kids trapper hat, headband, sherpa boots

These are the toys I ordered for Lexi and Chase on Amazon this morning. My cart started with the Black Friday Deal Echo Dot Kids Edition (so cute in rainbow) and Cry Baby Doll (stupid commerical Lexi sees all the time)... and quickly escalated. Not all are deals, but figured might as well get it done. Most of these toys were recs from friends, tried and true.

September on the Vineyard

Sweater: Ellsworth & Ivey. Sunglasses: Quay.

Our favorite time to visit Martha's Vineyard is September for so many reasons. For Ted, I think it's safe to say fishing The Derby comes in a close second to our wedding anniversary. The weather is gorgeous and the summer crowds have dwindled.

Carrier: BABYBJÖRN. Shirt: Monrow. Leggings: lululemon. Sneakers: Golden Goose. Sunglasses: Quay. Bag: Oliver Thomas (via Kirby & Company). Chase's Shoes: See Kai Run (via Peachtree Kids Nantucket).

We always take our car over on the ferry from Woods Hole. We left at 7AM and had a little time to spare for the boat at noon. The car rides to and from the ferry are rough... I'm not going to lie. Between Lexi and Chase we never know how many pit stops we'll make. 

He is a handful...  and looks so big at this angle. It's hard to navigate a stroller on the ferry so I always suggest a carrier if anyone asks. I will wear Chase until my back breaks... which will be soon because he's getting big.

Dress: Egg by Susan Lazar.

After we unloaded our car the first stop was lunch at The Newes. It is one of my favorite spots in Edgartown. Ted got a free bag of fries with his Derby pass... I prefer the onion rings (seriously, they are amazing) but who denies free fries. 

It's not so easy to shop downtown with my stroller in tow since all the stores have a step and narrow entry... so I usually spend my time walking around town while sipping on coffee and admiring all of the beautiful homes. 

Hanging out at the Harbor View with Mr. Chase. He was on the lookout for Ted and Lexi coming back from the beach.

Lexi went on her first off land fishing excursion with Ted and his brother. As you can see, she was so excited to be on her uncle's boat.

We also brought her to the top of the Edgartown Lighthouse. A little nervous at first but all smiles at the top.

I forgot to bring my "fancy" camera but usually take most pictures on my phone anyway. Other highlights included several stops at Rosewater for coffee and dinner at State Road up island. 

Happy Friday!

Blue and White Monday: Turtley Awesome

Hope you had a great weekend! If you're reading here you probably already know about Lilly Pulitzer's After Party Sale. The biggest Lilly sale of the season. Something you might not know.... Saks typically matches these prices (or comes pretty close). Check both sites for the best discount. You might luck out if something you wanted already sold out on LP.

I picked up a few shifts for Lexi to wear next summer from Saks. This "Turtley Awesome" periwinkle is my favorite. I think by the end of the day I'll pull the trigger on the matching dress for me.

Blue and White Monday: Mark D. Sikes

Dress: MDS Stripes. Nails: Essie Geranium. 

I was a minute late getting this posted for Monday... but we will still call it B&W Monday. When I first saw this blue floral dress on Julia Engel back in the spring (see her Instagram and blog posts) I fell in love. At the time, I didn't know that one of my favorite interior designers to follow, Mark D. Sikes, also had a fashion line but it all made sense. It wouldn't be the first time something I was wearing could blend right into my home decor. But after all, isn't blue and white a neutral?! 

I secured it from Rent the Runway for our summer vacation... it was perfect for a date night out in Chatham. I don't want to send it back! I'm planning to hold onto it for our trip to the Vineyard later this month... which is why I'm sharing it now. Get your hands on it! 

I've spent countless hours researching his projects online for ideas for my home and I never tire of looking through his book, Beautiful. If you are a blue and white lover, it is a must have in your collection. Endless inspiration.

It was hard to pick just one image... but this room has it all. Blue and white, brass, prints, woven textures, books... everything I love.

See a gallery of his West Hollywood home in this House Beautiful gallery. While I keep dreaming of a kitchen renovation, in the meantime I do have blue and white striped dish towels (I have an endless supply of these from William Sonoma) and ginger jars to keep me happy. :)

Happy weekend!

Lexi's Style File: Fall Back to School

Bella Bliss Jumper, Blouse // She La La Backpack
Bella Bliss Camille Blouse $46
Ralph Lauren Cable Peplum Cardigan $49.50 (Take 30% off when you spend $150)
Gap Toddler Jeggings $34.95 (25% off with code AUTUMN)
Wee Ones Bow $10.98
Gap Toddler Graphic Velvet Flats $29.95 (Now $18 with additional 25% off)

Where do you shop for Lexi? It's my most frequently asked question, so I launched Lexi's Style File series to share what I've been scoping out for her wardrobe.

Bella Bliss Fall Missy Blouse $38 & Fall Lindy Jumper $46

Like myself, I shop everywhere and combine high and low priced items. These Bella Bliss corduroy jumpers are pricey but so versatile. (I was actually on the Bella Bliss site ordering a little sale romper for Chase's birthday cake smash when I got incredibly distracted in the girls section and let's just say my order escalated quickly.) I expect that she will wear them frequently in the fall, paired with different shirts and wear into the cooler weather with knit tights.

Little Lexi in a few year after year favorites. We've been lucky to receive a few of the Ralph Lauren cardigans (baby, toddler) as gifts. Gap's peter pan collar shirt (baby, toddler) is a classic and pairs well with jeans and jumpers alike. I'm always on the lookout for new prints, but each year have bought her the stripes (shocking, I know). Most of Lexi's wardrobe has been from the Gap... I'm happy with quality, price and how everything coordinates well.

We have also had a few pairs of Velcro Converse sneakers... I love the gold. I'll save the shoe round up for another day along with some other clothes I'm eyeing!

For all of my local readers, be sure to enter my latest Instagram giveaway with Busy Little Bee for a chance to win a monogrammed backpack from She La La and fall semester of classes from Music Together of Fairfield County. Giveaway ends 9/1 - see Instagram post for details. All entrants are eligible to receive $10 off monogram fee for a backpack or lunch box at She La La in Westport, New Canaan and Greenwich locations. Just mention the giveaway and show your entry in store to redeem through 9/15.

Loveknot Edit: Janie and Jack Sale

Some of my favorites from the Janie and Jack sale that I shared on Instagram.... I bought most of this for Lexi and Chase. I had a hard time controlling myself! I'm a sucker for the accessories. For the newbies, I am loving this cabana print - comes in both pink and blue.

Summer Soirée

Dress: BCBGMAXAZRIA (available here, here and here). Heels: Christian Louboutin
On Ted... Jacket: Lauren Ralph Lauren

Last weekend Ted and I attended a charity event for OPUS for Person to Person with our friends in town. This floral navy dress from BCBG is perfect for summer weddings and events.

I was loving the pink theme and this marquee sign.. realizing I'm very behind on the latest trends for events. This would be so cute with a couple's initials for an engagement party or GIRL or BOY for a baby shower.

Talking makeup... Wearing Dior Addict Liptick in Riviera  - a shade found via Julia Engel a couple years ago. It's a perfect red-coral-orange shade for summer. Essie "Happy Wife Happy Life" is on my nails to coordinate (sadly a discontinued color). All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation by Nars is one of my favorite bases - it has amazing coverage! I wear the shade Sante Fe in the summer months.
