Wrapping it up for under $50 this summer! Keeping things fresh and updated for a backyard BBQ or a social distanced date night. Wrap dresses are my favorite for casual nights in or a big night out! Check some of my favorites here, all under $50:

Pretty in Polka Dots

I have the best memory of watching Pretty Woman for the first time , remember the POLO scene when Julia Roberts was wearing the brown polka dot dress and matching hat!? Omg of course you do and so does every designer, especially this season. This brown polka dot look is everywhere and it has not gone unnoticed by me! I absolutely love a monochromatic look more than anything and Scoop 100% had me on this look. Check out more of my favorites of the season!

Crazy for Camo

I am truly crazy for camo, especially the camo jacket! I am always looking for a replacement to a jean jacket. Although one can never replace the jean jacket, the camo is a super cute compliment to wearing jeans and a bit more casual than your basic cardigan! Check out my favorite camo jacket moments below for spring summer and beyond!

Summer Sunscreen

My summer sunscreen routine is tried and true! I have been using the tinted Elta MD on my skin for years and LOVE it! It’s a broad-spectrum SPF 46 for sensitive, acne-prone skin and it’s oil free. I tend to breakout during the summer, especially when using a heavy sunscreen but not with Elta MD. It’s lightweight but still strong enough to block off all of those harmful rays. (They make various products so if you have dry skin, check out this product).

Sunday Best Silk Robes

Remember when your Mom would say, “Put on your Sunday best”? Which always meant put on the nicest dress in your closet? Well, now that we are in the middle of quarantine and isolation, my Sunday best means wearing my nicest bathrobe haha! Now that winter has finally allowed spring to prevail, I have traded in my wooly big, bulky robe for a silky dress robe. Below are some of the latest robes that I’ve been wearing during these past few crazy months! They all make me feel great and give me life while making coffee on a Sunday morning lol!

Nautical Moments

The New England gal in me loves, loves, loves a nautical stripe! I have the fondest memories of being down at the Connecticut shore or up in Cape Cod during the summers while always wearing blue and white nautical stripe; it’s such a summer staple. I am loving how all of the different silhouettes are so popular (I linked some of my favorites for you below). The classic blue and white has become a neutral and matches just about everything in your wardrobe!
