4th of July Sale Guide

Happy 4th of July! Whether you’re having a stay cation to enjoy the holiday or adventured out to the beach or lake I hope you find time to get your inboxes to zero, unplug, and recharge!

Before we left for our trip I took a quick snapshot of what I packed, mostly casual outfits I could coordinate in different ways. I mixed up some of my older pieces with new and chose sandals that I could mix and match to keep my packing light and easy.

Must Haves for a Beach Getaway

This 4th of July my husband and I are traveling to Cape Cod to stay with friends and will see my best friend perform in a musical that’s running at the Cape Playhouse. It’s our first time adventuring to the Cape, though I’ve frequented Martha’s Vineyard and loved it there. I’m looking forward to exploring and enjoying some beach time with friends as we celebrate in red, white, and blue !

Dress / Sandals / Oh Hey Vacay (old) similar here

I’ve simplified my packing and just bringing some basics since we’ll be spending most of our time lounging around at the beach. I’m bringing mostly swimsuits, sandals, casual outfits and using my go to travel cubes for packing. I like how they keep your clothes all separate and organized with little wrinkling. I love this Lilly Pullitzer version but there’s larger and more budget friendly ones on Amazon that work great! I recently put together a packing guide blog post for when we travel so you can read more about how I pack and what I use to organize everything here. I’m also bringing my favorite roll up sun hat that is my go to for keeping the sun off my face and this travel beach blanket. We’ve had one for years and it’s lasted so long. If you’re in the market for any beach essentials these have been on the top of my list this season.

Wishing everyone a relaxing and fun 4th of July!




Axe Throwing in Brooklyn

IMG_1215.jpg

Yes, axe throwing! And believe it or not, it wasn’t my first time giving it a try. My brother in law manages Hatchets & Hops, Buffalo’s first axe throwing club. I’ve stopped in a few times to just watch and even throw. I just have to say how fun and entertaining the entire experience is! And it’s catching on! There’s more to be coming to the big Apple soon. It's definitely different and harder than expected, but if you're looking for a group date night or an adult birthday gathering this definitely checks a ton of boxes! We actually first discovered this spot when attending a friends 30th last winter and once we moved to Brooklyn we realized it’s so close to us now. I'm not "axepert" but happy to share the details. I recommend KickAxe Throwing in Brooklyn or Hatchets and Hops in Buffalo, NY. It’s a great indoor winter activity to plan with groups and there’s even a bar and snacks at most locations. 

This night I just dressed casual, comfortable shoes are best but I’d be lieing if I said I’ve never thrown in heels 👠

Love the bright magenta of this oversized cardigan from Express and this is my go camisole top I know I'll be wearing into spring and summer again. It has adorable back detailing and also goes well under leather jackets and blazers. My necklace is from bauble bar and I also found two other great sale finds in the y style here and here.
