In my last post I talked about easy summer dressing. The tough part, however, is figuring out what to wear for sweltering temps outside that also works in office A/C. I love a tied chambray button-up instead of a cardigan, and easily turn a demure dress into something a little more fun for post-work outings by tying at the side.

One of the best parts of summer is the ability to throw on a sundress, slip into sandals and walk out the door looking put together. Plus with the humidity, my hair gets just the right amount of wave that I am unable to fake any other time of the year. And for the heat...I'm still loving it! I spent all weekend at the beach and finally got a tan. Happy Hump Day!

Head to Toe: Top, Marshall's; Shorts, Continuations Consignments; Headband, Wet Seal.
In the summer, there's nothing better than throwing up your hair and running out the door. Lucky for me, Mackenzie's sister Dee is a hair stylist so I always get first hand expert advice (Like, your hair is too fine for conditioner, ends only!). She discovered a lot of easy summer "up-do's" and this one is by far my favorite. Throw on any headband "hippie style," twist your hair and roll it back under the headband. I have layers in the front, and I love how they fall out here and there (although you can just twist strands and tuck them over and under the headband if you prefer them back). I wore this style all weekend through beach trips, nights out, everything!

Last night I piled onto the train with friends and went to Alive @ Five, a weekly summer event in Stamford, CT. They hire a different band every week; last night was The Wallflowers. I rocked a summery look for what was a really great summer night. Looking forward to many more to come!

Quick post today as I am still recovering from a whirlwind weekend visit to my family in Maryland. I've been enjoying the easy living of summer on my evenings and weekends, soaking up the heat and taking my bike for a spin. So my style has followed suit. Tied tees and straw hats it is!

It's been a busy, rainy week. I was stoked to find this dress and tiny floral print rain coat on a super-quick lunch break consignment visit. The tunic is perfect for a rainy day layered with a long tank and leggings, but I'm also imagining it as a cute beach cover up (much preferable). Happy Friday fashionistas!

One of my favorite parts of summer is weekend adventures. This past one I went to Maine with Mackenzie and his parents; they have a beautiful place right on the beach. We squeezed a lot in - a visit to the "touristy" section, Old Orchard (I was looking for a spot to get henna, but it was super expensive!), a trip to Portland including a delicious breakfast and a flea market hunt, and of course plenty of walks on the beach and even a little bikini time. The weekend got me excited to return in July for a whole week's vacation. I love the locale's classic New England feel...If only I liked lobster!
