One key things I’ve learned about living in New York during these hot summer months is that linen dresses are everything. The fabric is light, airy and most importantly, breathable. I’ve recently been stocking up on pieces that are made up of cotton, linen or a blend of both. A simple white linen shirt or white linen pants are something you’ll reach for again and again whether you live or are traveling to a warm weather destination. You can easily pair a linen dress with a jean jacket and sandals or heels and you’re good to go for summer in New York! I just announced on Instagram but my boyfriend and I officially booked our trip to France! We will be visiting the South of France, Provence and Paris – of course. I have a strong feeling I will be living in linen dresses the entire time we will be over there. I’ve rounded up a few of my current favorites which some are under or around the $100 dollar price point! Have a great Tuesday, everyone! Xo. Lauren
The unofficial kickoff to summer is at finally here! I can’t believe it. What’s everyone doing this weekend? Whether you’re headed on a weekend getaway or a staycation, I rounded up so many good links for you this week. I know, I know I’ve been slacking with my Weekend Notes but there are only so many hours in the day.
I’m headed to Fire Island this weekend for the first time ever and can’t wait. Have you been? I’ll be sure to report back on Tuesday. I hope everyone has a great long weekend with friends and family! Xo. Lauren
Have you started listening to The Daily? A daily 20-minute podcast brought to you by NYT and Michael Barbaro ( I always fan girl over every time I see him in the office – #guilty). It’s the best for a morning commute + you can listen to on your Alexa! – The New York Times
TGIF!! So happy Memorial Day Weekend is finally here! Although the weather doesn’t look like it’s going to be on our side, I’m still looking to stock up on swimwear this holiday weekend given all the great Memorial Day sales happening.
Ahhhh can you guys believe Memorial Day is THIS weekend?! Summer really did sneak up on us this year. This weekend I’m headed to Fire Island for the first time this weekend and can’t wait! Have you ever been? Hopefully the weather cooperates but I’ll for sure be packing a few sun dresses in my weekender bag. Here are a few I’ve been loving lately!
