All White Nantucket Home Tour

I’ve talked before about my love for all white homes and I think this one really hits the spot!  The designers purposely added white ceilings, white walls and white floors as a chance to allow the furniture and design to pop.  Natural wood pieces were added to keep the feel of the home warm.  Located on the island of Nantucket, this coastal Summer home offers lots of easy breezy beach feels.  Take a peek:

I feel like the all white room really makes this nautical painting pop. Also I’m in love with that barrel planter! DIY?

Top 7 End of Summer Cocktails

If you’ve gone all Summer without trying these scrumptious cocktails, drop what you’re doing and head to your nearest bar or liquor shop!  The way I see it, there’s only about a month or so left of Summer.  In that span of time I fully intend on soaking up as much Summer and sunshine that I can get.  Who’s ever with me, say tequila!

Jewel Tone Outfits for Summer

One thing I love about Summer is that outfits tend to be more colorful and bolder.  Not to mention that as a jewelry designer, it’s no surprise that I’m attracted to jewel tones.  Lately I’ve been loving all the jewel tones done in Summer styles like plunging swimsuits, and one shoulder dresses.  Take a peek and let me know what you think!

I’m in love with these swimsuit styles featured in ELLE Turkey!!  Lately I’ve been seeing a swimwear trend of solid one pieces.  Recently we saw Sarah Jessica Parker sporting this trend in a navy one-piece on the beach.  However, these just aren’t your typical one pieces, they are well built and designed with crafty cut-outs.  Go ahead and take a peek into this Summer Look Book and see if there’s anything you fall in love with:
