Summer Skincare Faves

Hi there! 

I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer and to me it’s not over yet! These are some of my current skincare obsessions thanks to the Goop store in Sag Harbor, NY. I just got back from the Hamptons and that pop up store gave me a chance to get some truly wonderful products! 

First off is my never fails fave: Moroccan oil Argan oil for hair. I love putting this into beach hair to add moisture and contain frizz. My hair is so healthy and happy from using the Moroccan Oil shampoo conditioner and styling cream too!  

Now for my Goop finds: French Girl rose lip scrub is great for getting rid of dead skin on your lips and leaving them plump and smooth. Finish it off with rose balm for an extra hidrated pout!  It smells so good too:)

I love the way the Tata Harper lip and cheek balm feel, and her products are all natural and organic! In the sun this balm and sunscreen are all you need and I love the colors it comes in. 

Finally this lapis face oil/serum by Herbivore is to die for if you have combination skin like me. It leaves skin hydrated and balanced and not excessively oily. 

Let’s carry out that summer glow into fall with healthy skin and hair!

Vitamin Sea

Hi there! 

I hope everyone is enjoying a little vitamin sea this summer! I’m on a show contract in the Hamptons and trying to make time for the beach whenever possible. My current obsession is beach throws like the Lilly turquoise kaftan (recently blogged about: a score at Marshall’s), and my tan one with Pom poms that I was gifted from a friend. These beach throws are everywhere and so effortless for the beach and running errands. 

I’m also loving a beach hat like the two pictured above! The “resting beachface” one is from Bohemian Groove on the Move (I love her store check her stuff out)! The white one that says “beach time” was from a boutique here in the Hamptons. They protect your face from UV rays and are perfectly beach chic!

Hi there! 

I was able to recently have an end of summer beach day on Coney Island in Brooklyn, and this beautiful hoodie by Ocean Drive, a subsidiary company of Vintage Havana. I started working with this brand after discovering them at Christina's beachy store in Watch Hill, RI while on a beach day there. Christina's has the cutest fashion ever and it's always been a favorite of mine in Watch Hill. Be sure to check them out if you're ever in that area (and Taylor Swift's house lol).

I love how this sweater is comfortable and cozy while still being fashion forward with the striped neon pink and cream, beachy by design, and perfect for a windy day at the beach! I paired it with an oldie but goodie pair of H&M lace shorts and my Aldo gold berkenstock-style espadrilles sandals.

Happy Indian Summer like we are currently having in New York! I'm loving it!

Hi there! 

I was recently at Watch Hill beach in Rhode Island since I'm spending a lot of the summer on the CT shoreline at my family home. My look was one I picked up in Positano, Italy on the Amalfi Coast (see my last photo for one of my favorite Positano looks)! It was from a Beachy boutique they have there as well as in Capri exclusively and it's a gorgeous off the shoulder white dress with tassels on the borders. The straw bag with colorful tassels is also from another small boutique in Positano but these bags are everywhere this season!

White is so much fun to wear in the summer and is so perfectly Beachy with or without a tan. My gold Aldo sandals accentuated the look providing an updated neutral and a pop of metallic. I love how the straw bag can be very versatile from beach to going out as can this dress: it's a beach coverup or out to dinner dress with a wedge or dressy sandal.  

Happy Summer!
