ATHENA

 

ATHENA STRAPLESS MAXI (c/o Tanya Scheer) | SANDALS (Steve Madden) | BLACK TASSEL NECKLACE (c/o Mapleton Drive) | BRACELETS (J. Crew, Stella & Dot, Alex & Ani) | RINGS (Forternal, Gorjana) | INITIAL NECKLACE (c/o Maya Brenner)

Hard to believe it has been two weeks since N + I got back from Punta Cana. I can't say that it was the best trip of our lives (long story & details to come soon) but the weather certainly was to die for! & those beaches, 100% perfection. Packing for a week away can be somewhat challenging, but I was sure to pack plenty of light weight dresses. This gorgeous strapless maxi was by far one of my favorites & I hoping that I can get one more wear of it before Fall weather is here for good.

SKINNY SKINNY



TOP (c/o ShopBasic) | SKINNIES (Madewell) | TEE (J. Crew) | LOAFERS (Steve Madden) | BAG (Phillip Lim for Target) | TASSEL NECKLACe (J. Crew) | INITIAL NECKLACE (c/o Maya Brenner) | BRACELETS (Stella & Dot, J. Crew, Alex + Ani) | BUN BOW (c/o Gina Made It) | HEART RING (FORTERNAL)

These black skinnies are my new favorite pair of jeans I have ever owned ... in my life! They are the new Madewell skinny skinny ankle zip jean & let me tell you I haven't had to wash these jeans yet because they are that amazing! & I usually wash + air dry my jeans every time I wear them (seriously!). They do NOT bag or sag in the butt or knees & if I lay them out at night they bounce back to their original shape. I am actually afraid to wash them because I don't want their amazingness (is that even a word!) to go away. So you must head to your local Madewell + try on a pair of their new jeans - you won't be disappointed, I promise.

& how cute is this Bun Bow that I am wearing in my hair? Darling right! I mean who doesn't love bows! When Gina Made It contacted me + offered to send me some bows to style, I got wayyy too excited. These Bun Bows are the perfect way to change up a hair style. & let me tell you a little secret, I have been wearing mine as a bracelet too :)

FAVORITE BUN BOWS : GOLD CHECK LAME | WHITE POLKA DOT | MANGO RIB

Happy Labor Day weekend, friends! I am looking forward to this long weekend ahead of us (fingers crossed for good weather!). Tonight we are headed to a local rooftop pool to celebrate a neighbors birthday & Nick's parents are coming down tomorrow to spend the weekend with us. We have the Nationals baseball game Saturday night followed by a concert put on by Gavin DeGraw & Sunday I will be working (boo!) but Monday will be a nice day off before heading into another work week. 

I have so much to do before we leave for our trip to Punta Cana next Saturday & I hope to find the time to get it all done. Good news: My new West Elm Parsons desk is put together & now it is time to start accessorizing my new office (eek!). I spent a great deal of my evening last night looking for a chair + shelving. Any suggestions? 

What are your plans for this long weekend?
