Happy July ~ Letter From The Editor

Monday, July 1, 2019

Here at the Jersey shore, everyone loves to say that the summer flies by after the fourth of July holiday. I certainly hope not being that summer has really just started now that school has ended. But I have to say, there is some truth in that statement. My favorite season really does seem to go faster and faster each year. And it never fails that the more plans we have and the more we try to pack in to our summer, the faster it goes. So, here's to slowing it down and enjoying every moment of it.

This month on the blog, I'll be sharing my nightly skincare routine since many have asked me for it. It's fairly simple and doesn't include a ton of expensive products. So, be on the lookout for that. I'll also be sharing what's in my beach/pool bag including my favorite towel and sun protection products (for body, face, and lips) as well as what I'm reading. There will be a post tomorrow on festive cocktails to serve on July 4th as well as all summer long.

So stick around because there's a lot more than that coming to the blog this month. But in case you missed it, here are some of the popular posts from last month.

Also, be sure to check out my weekly series Weekend Dispatch where I share some ideas for how to spend your weekend.

I feel in love instantly with this snakeskin print dress, and judging from the pageviews on this post, so did you!

These farmers' market totes are perfect for hauling your all your local goodies or for tossing a few essentials in and hitting the beach or pool.

Summer is for seersucker! I shared a few of my favorite seersucker finds to stay stylish and cool this summer.

My love of reading runs deep but no more so than in the summer months. I shared my summer reading list in hopes of inspiring you to read more or at the very least, to find one good book to read this summer.

Pride Month may be over, but you can still show your support by wearing these fun rainbow fashions and finds.


This patriotic whale tee is a great way to show your spirit in a casual way.

If you are attending a white party, this wide leg jumpsuit is the perfect outfit for the festivities. No white party on your agenda? No worries! This jumpsuit works for any occasion.

A basic slide sandal is a must for summer. Throw them on with denim cutoffs, dresses, or skirts.

Leave your basic sunnies at home this summer. Instead opt for a pair of statement sunnies. I love these pink and purple tortoise sunnies. They are super cute and less than $15.

Don't forget to follow along on Instagram.

And on Pinterest.

Go forth and have a sizzling July!
