The other day my mom and I decided to take a trip to our local Arboretum, which was like an outdoor museum of trees and flowers. There was an abundance of colorful flowers and even a beautiful green house. I wore this Free People floral slip that felt appropriate for the day. The flowers have a watercolor effect, which creates a softer more feminine feel. I love how the dress has an extra layered fabric that creates an uneven hem line. Adding a knit sweater brings in a nice mix of texture to the chiffon dress and offers a warmer layer as the weather gets colder. This is one of my favorite sweaters to just throw on over any outfit. I actually ended up buying it in both orange and black! I wore these wrap up sandals that have been a favorite of mine this summer, but they can easily be swapped out for booties for a more fall appropriate look.
I always love going to the beach, especially around sunset. Something about walking along the beach at the end of the day is so peaceful and calming. These pictures were taken a few weeks ago while visiting my hometown in Connecticut. Although Fall is right around the corner, I just had to share some of these beautiful beach pictures as summer slowly fades away. These Billabong crochet sandals have been one of my summer staples along with my white Hudson skinny jeans. They might be summer basics, but I will definitely continue to wear them as the weather transitions into fall. Just add a chunky knit sweater and some booties and you're all set!
A few weeks ago I spent a day off hanging by the pool. I just love days like this with nothing to do but relax. Here are some snaps of my accessories I wore during the day. The two white beaded bracelets are by Chan Luu, and i absolutely love them! They were surprisingly affordable compared to most Chan Luu bracelets which can range close to $200! I also recently got this statement turquoise ring from Free People. I love the contrast of the light and dark turquoise stones. Free People has so many unique and different stone rings I just want them all!
