Thirsty Thursday: Christmas in July

While we may still have 5 months to wait before the real thing, we may as well sip a festive Christmas cocktail. We found this delicious (and most adorably named) concoction and can't wait to whip it up. Add some summertime shades of red & green, and it will officially be Christmas in July!


Say Yes to New J.Crew

It's no revelation that we love J.Crew. But this set of new arrivals has us over the top obsessed. So many classic pieces that we are just ogling over. We'd probably put the whole collection up here if we didn't set some parameters, so today we're sticking to basics. These pieces are so versatile and come in amazing color options. We can't wait to hop over to the store and SAY YES to everything on our list.


From Work to Play

I love my J.Crew Minnie pants, and can be seen wearing a them to work atleast once a week with a button down, sweater, necklace, and heels. To transition the outfit from work to play, I switched out the belt to a fun yellow, threw on a comfy pair of Converse, and traded my work bag for a tote. Such a comfortable outfit, and in two of my favorite colors (as you can see from my wedding)!

PS> My nails are painted in Essie's Fiji, which is one of my favorite colors for summer!

Sand Sculptures at Revere Beach

What's more impressive than a perfectly sculpted, super detailed work of art? One that's made entirely of beach sand. We took a trip down to Revere Beach this weekend to check out the national Sand Sculpting Festival and were amazed by what we found. The detail on these pieces was incredible! As inspired as we were, I think we'll stick to laying in the sand and leave the sculpting to the pros.

Thirsty Thursday: A Night at Alibi

Have you been to The Liberty Hotel and the phenomenal bars & restaurants inside? I've been on quite a few occasions (including my bachelorette party!) and had the opportunity to return to Alibi on Tuesday for an Equinox gym member event. 

For the non-Bostonians, The Liberty is the old Charles Street Jail, which has been renovated into a luxury hotel. Alibi is an indoor/outdoor cocktail bar that is worth a visit next time you are in town.

Equinox rented out the entire space, indoors and out, and threw quite the event, complete with a band, hors d'oeuvres, and four signature cocktails. I had the American Mule and Strawberry Bloom (and Rachel tried the Raspberry Limeade). Strawberry Bloom was a personal favorite, and a recipe I'll be recreating this summer. Very refreshing! 


Want It Wednesday - Eyes on White Eyelet

According to the radar, it is storming up and down the east coast right now. The view out of my window in downtown Boston is a steady stream of umbrellas, raincoats, and ponchos (tourists). Wet and white do NOT mix, but we're thinking of brighter days ahead. Stay cool [and look adorably sweet] in the mid-summer heat with any of these picks.
