Hi Hello blogging world. I've been pretty absent as of late, but that's because I have an amazing project launching at work this week - stay tuned on twitter to see more. Things are going to start to slow down a bit though, so expect to see a lot more of me across these parts. 

In the outside world (aka NYC) we've reached those dog days of summer that I dread every year. It feels like the heat is never going to end and every weekend most of the city flees for beaches and fresh air, leaving the rest of us to our AC window units and park picnics. With the ridiculous heat I've been living in this new dress I picked up from Loft a couple weeks back. It's ridiculously soft and paired with a classic chambray and Supergas it's the perfect bagels to errands to dinner look. So my advice if you're going to go out and buy anything this week - make it a easy breezy dress to beat this summer heat. Even better, I've linked to a bunch of options (on sale!) below.

If someone were to ask me what my favorite time of year is, I'd have to say the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale... 

Ok, well it definitely isn't my favorite part of the year, but it's definitely up there with Fourth of July and Thanksgiving. The shopaholic in me loves nothing more than getting amazing deals on items that are in-season and brand freakin' new. Plus, as mid July rolls around all I can think about is fall so the jackets, jeans, and booties this sale has to offer are right up my alley. 

I'm sure you've all seen a million roundups of the #NSale by now, but since the sale doesn't open to everyone until Friday I wanted to wait to share some pieces that hopefully won't be sold out by the time we can all get our hands on them. The Nordstrom sale is by far the best place to stock up on basics or finally splurge on a designer item you've been wanting. 

As a broke college student I'm all about the affordable investment pieces, so I've focused this post on all the best items under $80! You can find great pieces in the sale, like these booties or this moto jacket, that won't break the bank and I guarantee you'll wear for years to come. And for those of you who don't live near a Nordstrom they have ah-mazing online return policies, so go forth and order to your heart's content (just keep telling yourself you'll return some things ;))

One of the highlights of my weekend on Long Island was Lavender By the Bay in Marion. The lavender season is incredibly short, so I lucked out that the weekend I was visiting my friend was the weekend of the bloom. Visiting the fields was just absolutely magical and I couldn't believe that this spot existed just a couple hour drive from the city. The drive out to the lavender fields was just vineyard after farm after another vineyard, exactly what a New Yorker needs on a weekend trip. Next time I need another break from constant car horns and exhaust, you know this is exactly where I'll be heading.

Just before heading out of the city I found this perfect top on sale at Zara, but unfortunately I can't find it anywhere online. Luckily, I've been able to find a few other similar options that will give you the same feminine boho feel!

Does anyone else feel like they are still recovering from the holiday weekend? I felt like a zombie yesterday and so far today isn't any better, so the fact that I have a post up today is basically a miracle. My weekend hangover is well worth the amazing fun I had over the 4th though, and I have a few really gorgeous posts coming up from my short trip out to Long Island. 

While I love boats (they are the only moving vehicle I don't get motion sick on), I'd never actually been on a sailboat before, so when my friend and her boyfriend took us out on his family's sailboat this weekend I was shaking with excitement. Of course, I had to put on a red white and blue inspired nautical outfit and snap about a million pictures!

Getting shown around by my friends was the best! Annie was incredibly embarrassed we had matching stripes, but I loved it :)
It may look like I'm right at home driving the boat, but let me tell you - I was so freaked out I was going to run into an imaginary iceberg.
