Rediscovering My Inner Child at the Museum of Ice Cream

Museum of Ice Cream

Nail Color: Morgan Taylor P.S. I Love You (lilac crème)

Over the weekend I found true happiness at the Museum of Ice Cream, an interactive pop up experience based on the history and sweetness of Ice Cream. Like the Museum of Feelings it will only be in existence for a limited time and it’s totally worth a trip (though it might be sold out now).

Throughout my blissful visit, I ate ice cream (of course), looked at ice cream-inspired art and learned fun facts about the history of everyone’s favorite frozen treat. The highlight was swimming in a pool full of sprinkles. For my sprinkle swimwear I wore my LOFT Flecked Side Shirred Dress. I hope they come out with a Museum of Cupcakes next because that would make my life!

Baltimore Love!

Baltimore Mural Street Art LOFT Lou & Grey

A few weeks ago (okay a month ago! I’m still getting caught up on blogging) I visited my sister in Baltimore. She moved there a couple years ago and loves it. I must say that I like Charm City a lot too. My sister’s neighborhood of Canton is filled with beautiful murals, art galleries and creative street art like the colorful milk carton lanterns (pictured below). Above I’m wearing my summer signature LOFT Lou & Grey Slinky Racerback Midi Dress. It’s really one of my favorite dresses from this summer. It’s so comfortable and stylish.

I’m a huge fan of Baltimore’s artsy side and unlike New York, the art for sale in the galleries is actually pretty affordable. The huge detailed murals and nearby Patterson Park make it a blogger’s and photographer’s paradise. I’m pretty excited to go back.

Steal vs. Splurge: Scallop Bandeau Bikini

I can’t believe it’s already August! While summer is flying by faster than a two week vacation, it’s not too late to stock up on some sexy swimwear. This Scallop Bandeau Bikini look is everywhere this summer and I’m loving it. Luckily, this beachside look is available at every price under the sun. So dive in and get your end of summer shopping on. A new bathing suit is the perfect excuse to book another vacation or crash someone’s pool party (not that you needed one).

TechStyle NYC’s Urban Oasis

Summer Hair Aspiring Socialite

I recently spent some quality time hanging out at an amazing house in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan checking out some awesome products with some of NYC’s most fabulous bloggers. Complete with an indoor pool, this house was truly an urban oasis in the concrete jungle we know as New York.

Aside from meeting some really compelling people, I got my hair done by Caravan Stylist Studio, checked out the cutting edge Velvet Eyewear line and got a true feel for Lifetherapy’s mood-changing body creams, lotions and scrubs. I love how Lifetherapy allows you to choose your mood just by choosing a scent. No matter which you choose, all of their scents will help you escape into a relaxing, happy place.

Many thanks to TechStyle NYC for the invite. It was good vibes all around and truly one of the highlights of my summer.

Summertime in Long Island City

Banana Republic Maxi Dress Long Island City

When you can’t make it to the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore, the next best thing is Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City. This boardwalk style park resembles The High Line and has some of the most amazing views of Manhattan. I like to stop by at least once every summer.

I always say that you don’t know if you really love an outfit until you’ve done an entire photo shoot with it. So now I can officially say that I love this Banana Republic Mixed Floral V Neck Maxi Dress. I need to plan a fancy brunch or tea party just as an excuse to wear it again. I paired it with my fav Longchamp ‘Small Le Pliage’ Shoulder Bag and felt like a true summer socialite. The shoes are from Joe Fresh.

For my makeup I used the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye LinerMaybelline New York Eyestudio Colortattoo Concentrated Crayon Eye Color in Bronze Truffle, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Soft Brown to fill in my brows, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara and The Blushed Nudes Maybelline Eyeshadow Palette to blend it all together.
