Twist & Twirl in a LWD

It feels so good to break out my LWD’s for the warmer weather. Even I can get sick of my black clothes sometimes. (GASP!)

Ya know what I’m in love with? Chokers. When trends make their way around again it can be a little alarming… sometimes things go away for a reason. Chokers though, aaaaah yes, I’m so glad they’re back! I’ve worn them a little bit here and there throughout the 2000’s but they’re a staple now. YAY.IMG_7999IMG_7998IMG_7997IMG_7996IMG_7995

I’m a fan of this little white dress for a few reasons; it’s light and airy, perfect for those sticky hot days when you can’t really walk around naked but want to feel like you are, HAH, and the adorable detailed straps. It’s comfortable and cute and a great transitional dress to go from hanging at the beach to having some evening cocktails with just a quick change of shoes.

Cool off with Mint Julep

Have you guys ever seen ice boating? While taking these pictures my best friend and I were fascinated with this sport we had never seen before! We were about the only people in our area who had never witnessed this before apparently because just about everyone we spoke to thought we were pretty dumb for not knowing what it was. Well excuse us!

This maxi dress is everything! I am SO in love with it. It is so gorgeous and perfect for the summer, I literally cannot wait for you guys to see it! I layered it with a long sleeve top and closed toe heels to make it work for the colder temps because I seriously couldn’t wait until the spring or summer to wear it. It has a halter top style top and the print is so gorgeous. It’s the kind of dress that can easily go from a day at the beach to water front cocktails with just a change of shoes.

They are the first items I’ve received that I really considered hanging on to… but alas, I sent them back. It was a very tough decision but I have a pair SO similar so I bit the bullet and sent them in. Maybe shed a tear or two in the process…maybe.

This is a funny little outtake, which I rarely ever post but I always have so many, ha. This one literally cracks me up because my bestie was SO so concerned with the boats behind me, she kept taking pictures of them instead of me, haha. But I mean, we’ve lived right by Red Bank our entire lives and we’ve never seen this before, it was pretty amazing.

So now for my special announcement! I recently got a chance to catch up with a dear friend of mine, Artem Lomaz of NinetyThree Entertainment, to discuss blogging and style tips, wedding do’s and don’ts, my love affair with certain celebrities, growing up with my husband, and much more! Artem serves as a Principal Event Host helping to coordinate all of the entertainment elements for weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, corporate events, and so much more. We sat down to an incredible meal at David Todd’s City Tavern in Morristown and caught up for a series he has previously introduced called ‘Dining with the DJ.’  You can watch all of our episodes soon, but for now here’s a little preview.
