Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! The weather here in New York was absolute perfection….sunny skies and temps in the mid seventies. I ventured into the city for the Julianna Bass show on Saturday night and then we headed over to Grand Banks which is the coolest bar (it’s actually a docked boat on the Hudson). I’ve been dying to get there all summer so I was thrilled to finally experience it especially on such a beautiful evening. We arrived just in time to catch the sunset and it certainly did not disappoint! I know I’ve been MIA most of the summer here on the blog so I thought I’d share an instagram round-up of what I’ve been wearing lately. Most of my looks are from Hilton Head but a few are from my day to day life as a mom here on Long Island. (I’ve included alternatives to styles that are sold out.) Some of my favorite pieces this summer have been these shorts, this comfy top (this one too), these fun statement earrings, this classic black one piece, and these over-sized sunglasses. Definitely worth the investment since I’ve mixed and matched them a bunch of different ways! Now is a great time to scoop up timeless summer staples and put them away for a mid-winter get away or next year. I looove end of the season deals!
On a more serious note, I cannot neglect to acknowledge that today is the 16th anniversary of 9/11. It’s a day that none of us will ever forget. I was in downtown New York that morning (you can read about my experience here) and ever since then, I’ve developed a deeper appreciation as an American and a New Yorker. Also, my thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by Hurricane Irma. I hope everyone is safe and sound and spending time with their loved ones.
