It’s August…and as much as I shudder to say it, that means that autumn is right around the corner. Don’t get me wrong, I love hearing crisp leaves crunch beneath my boots and I love baking fresh apple pie – but definitely not as much as I love being drenched with the warmth of sunshine and having BBQs with good friends.
Since autumn is on its way, fall apparel is becoming more and more abundant in stores. I recently spoke with a friend who told me that she bought a whole bunch of new pieces from Gap. I was a bit surprised to hear this as I typically think of Gap as a place to grab a good cotton tee or perhaps a cute chunky sweater so it was my delight when I went on their website and browsed their New Arrivals section.
So. Many. Adorable pieces. The proof is in the pudding…

Ooh la la, this summer is heating up, and I’m cranking up the AC! I cannot believe that tomorrow is the first day of July. Where did June go, and can someone please press pause on this sweet summer of 2015?
As New York finally heats up, I’m putting the finishing touches on my summer wardrobe. I dipped by toes in the ocean the other day, and it seems that it’s warming up (very slightly)…which means that it’s time to get ready for those seemingly never-ending beach/pool days that fade into long summer nights. I’m very much ready to pull off the “I just stepped off the beach, and now I’m ready for my Rose please and thank you” look and I think these cover-ups are just what the beach bum ordered.
5 Cover-Ups that go from Pool to Party

I love that this cover-up comes with a belt to accent the waist- the v-neck is also super flattering and I cannot get enough of this print!
What a complete bummer this weekend has turned out to be! I suppose you could say that we’re a bit spoiled here in New York after last weekend was just so gorgeous- it was the first weekend that was perfect for spending some quality time at the beach, after all. I thought that perhaps we’d luck out with just a bit of clouds and no rain but as I was horseback riding this afternoon, I felt the rain drops begin…shortly after my ride was over, it began to pour (what perfect timing!).
I’ve been on the hunt for a great rain coat for a while now- something that’s classic (of course), a bit fun, and completely 150% dependable to keep me dry in a downpour. It turns out that there are a ton of darling rain coats out there that fit my idea of a perfect rain coat. How’s a girl to decide on just one?
