white peplum & pumps


Anthropologie top, Rag & Bone shorts, Shoemint pumps, Rebecca Minkoff bag (on major sale), Stella & Dot and Gorjana necklaces, Ray-ban sunglasses 

I bought these white pumps for my rehearsal dinner and haven’t stopped wearing them all summer.  They’re prefect to dress up something more casual, like this Anthropologie top and distressed denim.  This top has an adorable ruffle detail on the back, which I forgot to take pictures of!  Blogging can be tough somethings.  I also love that it can be worn out casually or also to work because of it’s high neckline.  I’m trying to stock up on transitional pieces since it’s almost fall, but I can’t stop buying white.  Oh summer, please don’t go.

hawaiian honeymoon part II

hh1 These are the last of my pics from our honeymoon in Hawaii.  They are also probably my favorite and the most beautiful pictures from the trip.  The last two days we took a cruise to the Na Pali coast and drove through Waimea Canyon.  Both were absolutely breathtaking and my favorite activities during our time in Kauai.  The cruise was five hours long and we got to snorkel and see all parts of the coast that you can only see by boat.

Hawaii was such an amazing place and the perfect place to spend our honeymoon.  I wish I could go back every year (too bad it is so far from the east coast).  If anyone is visiting Hawaii anytime soon let me know!  I’d be happy to answer any questions or give recommendations! xo

summer zucchini “pasta” salad


This post could also be called “yay! finally a recipe!”, but I decided to stick with the recipe name.  I made this yummy salad last week and finally had enough time to snap some pictures as I was cooking.  I love making a pasta salad in the summer months using fresh raw corn and heirloom tomatos.  I decided to make it, but instead of pasta I used a vegetable peeler to thinly slice a zucchini and used that instead.  It was delicious, fresh, and super healthy!  Recipe is below.  Enjoy and have a great weekend. xo


Ingredients for the salad: fresh corn, yellow and green squash, heirloom tomatos, shredded carrots, and feta cheese.  zucchini3

Make a light dressing for the salad using mustard, honey, lemon juice and zest, olive oil, salt and pepper.   zucchini4

Using a vegetable peeler thinly slice the zucchini into strips.  Place strips into a strainer and allow it to drain for 30 minutes.   zucchini5 zucchini6 Combine all your ingredients in a bowl, serve, and enjoy!

hawaiian night

hawaiiannight1 Lovers and Friends maxi dress, Banana Republic bag, Sam Edelman flats

This dress is one of my favorites from last summer.  I love the print, and thought it was perfect for dinner in a tropical location.  I wore it out on the last night of our honeymoon when we had dinner overlooking the water and the sunset.  I also lived in this sunhat I borrowed from my friend for the trip.  It kept me protected from the sun when we were laying by the beach and dining outside.  I also love these hats (one, two) for hot weather!  hawaiiannight2 hawaiiannight3 hawaiianight4 hawaiiannight5 hawiianight6

The balcony off our room in Oahu.  Wearing: PacSun skirt, Free People top.

I wanted to share a few of my pictures from our beautiful Hawaiian honeymoon.  We were lucky enough to visit three Hawaiian Islands, Oahu, Maui, and Kauai.  Each island kept getting more and more beautiful.  We ended on Kauai which was definitely my favorite island.  It was the most peaceful and remote with gorgeous beaches and beautiful, quiet,  little spots.  I think the pictures speak for themselves!   oahu1 honeymoon2 Walking around the hotel in Oahu early in the morning and taking a tour of Pearl Harbor.  Wearing Victoria’s Secret romper (similar), and Sam Edleman flats.
