The key accessory to any summer outfit is a fabulous pair of sunglasses. I really love how they can switch up the look of any ensemble from serious to playful to elegant. With so many different frame shapes and colors there is a world of possibility when it comes to finding a pair that compliments your personal style. I purchased this pair of oversized sunglasses by Linda Farrow from Nordstrom Rack.  They have a vintage, glamorous Jackie O look that appeals to me and at half the retail price they are also a steal. When it comes to glassesNordstrom Rack has so many great options at affordable prices. It's also convenient that they offer free shipping (on orders over $100) and free returns up to 90 days.

A Splendid Day in Acadia

Shirt: Splendid Shorts: Splendid Sneakers: Nike,  Sperry (similar) Scarf: Vintage 
Kiel: Sweatshirt: Splendid Shorts: Chubbies Sneakers: Nike  Hat: Kiel James Patrick 

On a recent trip to Maine, Kiel and I spent an exciting afternoon exploring Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. It was well worth the 6 hour drive from Rhode Island! The craggy coastline, pine trees standing tall against the sea, combined with ocean views of neighboring islands could not have been more stunning. We walked along the Ocean Path and drove to the top of Cadillac Mountain, happily snapping pictures along the way. 

For this post I teamed up with Splendid, a company that celebrates softness not only in their fabrics (my shirt and Kiel's sweatshirt are incredibly cozy!) but in life's special moments. During this adventure it was so nice to put our phones away and take in the beauty of our surroundings. I choose a classic look that was comfortable and perfect for a day of walking. I love how versatile and familiar each Splendid piece feels.

Gaspee Docks

Shirt: Banana Republic Shorts: Banana Republic c/o Bag: Chanel Sandals: Banana Republic c/o Bracelet: Banana Republic Necklace: Banana Republic Ring: Kiel James Patrick Glasses: Karen Walker Lipstick: Smashbox // Big Spender  c/o

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.
