Loving Lately: Coffee Table Books

Making a home feel welcoming and cozy often comes down to those small decorating details. Corners that entice you to curl up and chat or relax with your coffee and a good book are spaces that I image many long for. The good news is that it only takes some thoughtful items to make these […]

A Pretty Summer Dress

When it comes to easy summer looks, dresses have been my go-to. Midi and maxi lengths have been my favorite and they come in such an array of styles. I couldn’t pass up this darling floral dress when I saw it. The puffed sleeves and smocked detailing in addition to the floral print combine to […]

Stone Harbor 2021

This past week we spent with our toes in the sand in Stone Harbor, NJ with our dear friends. We typically visit every year and it truly feels like a second home the second we pull into town. We have a routine, know the local spots we like to hit and enjoy every bit of […]

Early Summer Vibes

Laid back, put together style feels like my go-to lately.

Playing around with color combos and various materials are two ways to to do […]
