Fashion Highlight: Casual Summer Accessories for Day and Night

What are your go to accessories for summer?

I’m always reaching for a light hat with a brim (my Shopbop lace hat was the BEST but alas I lost it), an easy purse, and comfortable sandals during summer days.  I like to keep a casual vibe at night too, but give my look a little edge with some glitzier accessories, including a fun clutch and a statement cuff.

I’m definitely on the hunt for a new summer fedora and bright gold cuff now!

Decor Thoughts: Opulence at Mary Kate Olsen’s NYC home

Mary Kate’s NYC townhouse is the epitome of abundant elegance.  it was featured on Curbed and Wall Street Journal and features a double height grand ballroom, garden room, seven fireplaces, and 22-foot high decorative wood ceilings.  Its original owner, Charlotte Martin, bought about 20 homes in the east side of midtown Manhattan in 1919, remodeled them, and renamed the area Turtle Bay.  Now its the home to former child star and fashion designer Mary Kate Olsen.

I can certainly appreciate the original and unique details.  Any home that combines a rooftop pool with early 20th century original wood ceilings is certainly one of a kind!  Oh and I’ll take a hall of mirrors and a garden room please!

Natural Beauty DIY: Softening and sunburn soothing mask

We all love cold popsicles, dips in the pool, and long days during summer. But no one loves the after effects of a scorching hot day at the beach – sunburn.  I am somewhat fair and unfortunately am prone to getting those hot, unsightly patches of reddened, sun exposed skin.  I’m thinking about paying more visits […]
