When the temperatures finally hit twenties last week, I didn’t know what to do with myself! All of my summer clothes were (and still are) packed away in a multitude of boxes along with summer sandals, and all I had lying around were a few recent purchases and mostly closed-toe shoes. After some rummaging, this is what I ended up pulling together – a Macy’s maxi that I picked up in New York in February (worn with my fave leather jacket in the morning when it was still chilly, and without during the day). And though I was initially hesitant to wear pointy-toe shoes with a maxi dress, I think this silver pair actually works. Disaster averted!

Looking through the images from our honeymoon, I can’t help but wish I was back in beautiful Barcelona, strolling down La Rambla, indulging in delicious tapas, and drinking sangria under the hot Spanish sun. Below is a selection of photos from one of those lovely days spent enjoying Barcelona, and discovering its many hidden (and not so hidden) gems. Enjoy!

When I stumbled upon these lookbook photos from Alberta Ferretti’s collaboration with Macy’s Impulse…I pretty much squeeled with excitement. Set in Positano, Italy…these photos are the essence of what I hope my wedding getaway will feel (and look) like. I’d like to imagine that this entire lookbook was shot with my honeymoon in mind!
Everything in the Alberta Ferretti x Macy’s Impulse collection is priced between $49 and $119, and will be sold at 185 Macy’s locations across the US starting April 17.
With that said…me thinks a trip to Buffalo is in order. Who’s with me?

Allow me to introduce you to the latest favorite piece in my closet. Readers – Shorts, Shorts – Readers. I remember the precise moment I saw these shorts at Macy’s in NYC…I saw the lovely pattern, the knit, even the lace-up crotch, and thought out loud:
“A couple of years ago, I could totally rock these.”
“You still can.” – said my friend Lovelys. And thus history was made.
I quickly tried on the shorts, fell even more in love with them for not being as short as they initially looked, and happily handed over my credit card to the cashier. Tic-tac-toe.
And though I haven’t yet had a chance to wear them in Greece (this collection was inspired by Mykonos), I did wear this outfit to a friend’s BYOWG (bring your own water gun) birthday party. By the time we got to the party, all the big guns were taken (and we were too lazy to BOOWG), so I had to fend for myself with a teeny-tiny pistol…against the ginormous barrel water guns. Needless to say…I got majorly soaked. Like straight up “went for a swim in my shorts”. But guess what?! They didn’t become see through and dried as fast as the sun could touch them. Now that’s what I call a good buy! I’m telling you - happiest purchase in a really long time.
PS. Have a great Canada Day/Independence Day weekend, lovelies! And whatever you do, I hope it makes you as happy as these shorts make me!!!
I Wore: Shorts – Impulse for Macy’s; Shirt – Forever21; Shoes, Bikini – Old Navy; Hat, Bracelets, Sunglasses - H&M; Bag - c/o Ecco; Turquoise Bracelet – Urban Outfitters

When I saw these pants at Macy’s (old lady section) earlier this month, it was love at first sight. Damask print? Check. Ankle lengh? Check. Breezy cotton for the summer? Check. Perfection in one old-lady-pant package. Don’t you think? I think, life is too short to be wearing boring pants. So from now on…my mission in life is to wear as many “fancy” pants as possible. So far so good?
I Wore: Pants – Charter Club for Macy’s; Tank Top – H&M; Denim Jacket – c/o Levi’s; Shoes – BCBGeneration; Necklace – Forever21; Bracelet – Urban Outfitters; Backpack – Chanel; Sunglasses – Ray Ban
