Paisley Picket

 Dress: Theory Sandals: Steve Madden Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Bracelet: Brandy Pham Watch: Kate Spade Necklace: Kendra Scott Glasses: Gucci Hat: Eugenia Kim (similar) Lipstick: Chanel // Bonheur

I didn't realize how much I would love white sandals until I bought a pair. Almost every sandal in my closet is a slightly different rendition of the same minimalist style in brown leather. When I saw the pair featured in this post at Nordstrom I contemplated buying them. In my experience white shoes can be hard to pull off.

When I brought these sandals home, I tried them on with a few different outfits just to see how they looked. I was surprised to find that they complimented a good number of the pieces I wore. For summer travel this is key. There is nothing worse than lugging a heavy bag while waiting in a long line for the ferry. I packed these white sandals and two other shoes for my 4th of July trip this week.  For me that is pretty impressive. Below are a few of my other favorite sandals at Nordstrom this season.

Oh I'm an American Girl

Dress: Camilyn Beth ℅  Sandals: Tory Burch Bag: Tory Burch ℅  Bracelets: Kiel James Patrick (coming soon), Tory Burch Glasses: Kate Spade (similar)  Hat: J.Crew Lipstick: Stila // Venezia 

Last week Kiel and I stayed at Winvian Farm, tucked away in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut. The resort is owned and run by the Smith Family who purchased the property in 1948. Featured in this post is the main house and heart of the estate.  Built in 1775, It oozes quintessential New England charm. The Smith family spent their summers and long weekends at Winvian until deciding to turn it into a luxurious retreat seven years ago. It is complete with spa, organic gardens, and eighteen individually designed resort cottages for guests to stay in. One guest described the property as "Norman Rockwell meets Alice and Wonderland" and I will have to agree. (I will be sharing more on my stay in an upcoming post. For now I recommend checking out the cottages on the Winvian Farm website. They are unique in the best way!)

The main house currently serves as the resort reception and restaurant. Not featured is the gorgeous addition to the house. It includes a silo staircase leading to the restaurant constructed with wood beams from old barns. I wore this Camilyn Beth dress to a delicious farm to table dinner. It happened to be on Flag Day, but I can't think of a more perfect dress to wear on the 4th of July. 

Special thank you to Winvian Farm for our stay!

Picking Daisies

Shirt: DVF  (different color) Shorts: Anthropologie Sandals: Stuart Weitzman Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Glasses: Gucci Bracelet: Ralph Lauren Ring: Argento Vivo Lipstick: Stila // Beso 

This time of year I always look for comfort when shopping for shoes. With the warmer weather  I never know where the day might lead me or how much walking I will wind up doing (especially on weekend getaways). Recently I stopped into Nordstrom to buy a comfortable pair of wedges. I immediately fell in love with the pair featured in this post by Stuart Weitzman. They are not only great for wandering around, but the neutral hue matches everything. I also love that wedges make my legs look so much longer. Below I shared a few of my favorite wedges this season.
