This last weekend couldn’t have been more perfect. Cesar and I flew to New York to celebrate my brother’s wedding and had an absolutely amazing time. The venue was beautiful, held in South Hampton and the weather couldn’t have been more wonderful. On Friday morning we had a few hours to kill so we took a little drive to the nearby town of Sag Harbor. Filled with quaint shops and beautiful waterfronts, we loved exploring and strolling down the street.

It was hot that day so I wore my most simple skirt and nautical t-shirt to take in the sites. My trusty Sam Edelman sandals provided breathability and support for the walk.

In the most adorable general store we found Sag Harbor made soda! Orange being my favorite, we had to pick one up. Complete with a straw and story from the shop owner.

With my brother’s permission, I will be posting some Instagram photos to tide you all over until the official wedding ones are released. It was such a beautiful wedding and I can’t wait to share!

 

Brother’s Wedding Rehearsal Dinner – A Nordstrom Maxi Dress Review

As you’re reading this Cesar and I are in South Hampton, NY showering, primping, prepping and preparing for my brother’s wedding rehearsal dinner! Over the last year you have read about engagement parties and bridal shower style, all leading up to this weekend. For their rehearsal dinner (hosted at a gorgeous winery), I will be opting for this pleated floral maxi I found at Nordstrom a few months back. It fits me like a glove and with it’s fully lined interior, it will be perfectly comfortable for the evening.

Admittedly, I got all dolled up weeks ago when Lydia was in town to shoot this outfit. Knowing full well that this weekend would prove too busy to shoot the dress, I wanted to be sure you had all the details for your own wedding season. In short, I am in love with this dress. It feels incredibly etherial when worn and drapes beautifully. While I would have preferred a v-neck style, i’ve come to the realization that maxis are simply never adorned with my favorite neckline.

One thing I did want to note is that this dress does run slightly large. I’m wearing a size 8 here (typically a size 10 dress) and it zips wonderfully. The lining isn’t too snug over my hips and I will be wearing it this evening with zero alterations.

I might be changing up the accessories for tonight but this is an idea of what I will be pairing it with in the future. Nude/metallic accents for Summer and for this particular evening rehearsal dinner, I might be changing out the shoes for the ones seen here, adding black accent jewelry, and a belt like this.

Have a wonderful weekend and if you’re on Instagram be sure to follow along on the wedding adventures with me, and my brother’s very own wedding hashtag: #HHWedding!

Wearing a Jersey Maxi

This is seriously one of my favorite new outfits. A comfy jersey maxi paired with longer length button up is cinched at the waist with a thick belt. I mean, could it be any more perfect for San Francisco?

I also love tying this maxi up in the corner. I think it creates more interest and dimension in the outfit and also breaks up the awkward ankle-length that this dress tends to hit me.

Styling a Chanel Scarf, Part 2

Today is the last day to enter the Chanel scarf giveaway in honor of ThePearShape’s 1st birthday. Thank you so much to everyone that has entered so far, I am completely overwhelmed by the response and am so glad everyone loved this particular gift I picked out. I wanted to show another very different way to style this scarf for a dressier evening out, proving just how versatile this accessory is.

Worn with all black, I draped the scarf around my neck and tucked it just inside my blazer lapels to allow the color to peak out. This gave a beautiful flush to my face and compliments red lipstick beautifully. With loose hair and basic eye makeup, this is a stunning dinner or night out look.

Another more cheeky way to style the scarf is to tie it around the neck. This slightly Parisian style is reminiscent of flight attendants but I think is absolutely stunning and regal.
