Summer is officially here and with it comes longer days and warmer nights. I love putting together outfits that are effortless yet polished. Banana Republic's summer line has the perfect pieces to achieve this look. Floral prints, ruffled sundresses and shirts, and my favorites this simple tie-front white button down and navy sailor shorts are ideal for 16 hour days. I dressed up my look by wearing gold strappy sandals and nautical inspired jewels. When I saw this adorable pearl bracelet I just had to have it! Banana Republic has a beautiful collection of jewels for the season.

Location: Block Island, Rhode Island // Hotel Manisses

I don't visit Block Island nearly enough. It is the perfect place to go if you are looking for a low-key, relaxing weekend by the sea. Kiel and I recently visited with a couple of friends and had a wonderful time riding scooters, exploring the shops in town, and walking along the beach. 

We were invited to stay at the newly, renovated Hotel Manisses. Kiel and I enjoyed a dinner at the hotel in the outdoor courtyard  with our interns last summer, and were very excited to be back. The food and atmosphere did not disappoint. I fell in love with the gorgeous decor. If you are planning a trip to Block Island this summer the hotel restaurant and bar are definitely worth a visit (Rooms on the island tend to book up fast. I would recommend booking a room well in advance). Other points of interest include: Mohegan BluffsPersephone's Kitchen  (best coffee and pastries), Block Island Trading Company (clothing store),Tipsy Mermaid (clothing store), The Oar RestaurantYellow Kittens Tavern (fun spot for drinks, music, and dancing), and Clayhead Nature Trail. I would love to hear some of your favorite spots on the island! 
              
                                Special thank you to the Hotel Manisses for our stay!

New York, New York

Recently Kiel and I went to NYC for a few different meetings. It was a short overnight trip but we managed to pack in a lot. I've been dying to go back to Lure Fishbar since my last trip to the city with Tommy Hilfiger. I knew Kiel would love it. The food is amazing and the interior is modeled after a yacht with it's high-gloss wood floors and plaid and leather seats. I really wish we had a restaurant in Rhode Island like it. 

We spent the night at the Greenwich Hotel and it was a great experience. The room we stayed in was spacious with the comfort of being at home. I can't begin to describe how beautiful the bathroom was. That bathtub faucet alone... I would definitely stay there again. Our trip was far too short.
