Summer Florals

Dress: Rebecca Taylor Shoes: kate spade c/o Bag: YSL (similar) Watch: Tory Burch (old, also love this style) Bracelets: Kiel James Patrick 1,2 Rings: kate spade 1,2 c/o  Glasses: Karen Walker Lip Gloss: Lorac // Seductress

I'm approaching my third trimester and fitting into the majority of my clothes is becoming really difficult. I haven't purchased any maternity clothes but I've been wearing a lot of loose fitting dresses, wrap dresses, and anything with an elastic band. I partnered with Nordstrom for this post to highlight summer dresses. I'm really happy to be pregnant during the summer because that is pretty much all I have been wearing. The wrap dress featured is not maternity and I  just love the ruffles and floral pattern. It's an elegant dress I can wear for years to come.( I really love this and this dress by Eliza J but they are not going to work out for me this summer.) I shared a few wrap dresses that I have my eye on below. 

                                 Special thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

Tennessee Barn Wedding

Dress: Shoshanna c/o Shoes: Chloe Bag: J. McLaughlin Earrings: Nicola Bathie c/o Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick Lipstick: Marc Jacobs // Cora Cora c/o 

During Memorial Day Weekend, Kiel and I traveled to Nashville for our friends wedding. I wore the prettiest Shoshanna dress (featured) that turned out to be perfect for a beautiful barn wedding. I paired it with my Chloe scalloped ballet flats and a straw bag that has been on repeat all summer. I bought these shoes four years ago and I've yet to find a pair more comfortable! The wedding wasn't overly dressy and I wanted to tone down the look of the dress with pieces that were more casual. While I won't have another opportunity to wear this dress over the next few months, I can't wait to wear it with heels and an evening clutch for a future event. 

I shared some of my favorite dresses to wear to a wedding this season below. Some are dressy and some are little in between.

Newport Sail

Blazer: Ralph Lauren c/o Dress: DVF Sandals: Tory Burch Bag: Bosom Buddy Bags  Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick Earrings: Kiel James Patrick Glasses: Karen Walker

Sailed the high seas aboard the Eleanor with our Kiel James Patrick Newport store team this past Sunday. It was the perfect evening for a sunset cruise, cool enough for just a sweater and no humidity. The beautiful landscapes of Jamestown and Newport are even more stunning when observed on the water. I always love passing Castle Hill and Hammersmith Farm! For anyone visiting Newport for the first time a sailboat excursion is a must! 

While on board we couldn't resist the opportunity to shoot our new Kiel James Patrick men's polos, and rope sunglass straps. This summer we have released so many new products with more to come!

Over the holiday weekend Kiel and I drove the bug down to Watch Hill to spend a few days with friends. It's one of my favorite places, and as far as I'm concerned the best place to celebrate the 4th. We went for the first time last year and had to do it again. The Ocean House throws an amazing Independence Day Beach Ball that we did not want to miss. The party this year did not disappoint. We were fortunate to have gorgeous weather. I returned home quite content after a little fun in the sun.
