Bachelorette Weekend in Long Beach Island New Jersey

Bachelorette Party Favors

As you might already know, I’m a bridesmaid in my friend Tracy’s wedding. I just came back from her amazing bachelorette party weekend in Long Beach Island, New Jersey! After the fab Memorial Day weekend I had with some wonderful ladies at the Jersey Shore, I can’t tell you how hard it was to go back to everyday life.

The house we rented in Barnegat Light was beautiful and we even had a private beach which on a holiday weekend is the way to go. Not only were we spoiled all weekend with delicious food (hello mini pop tarts) and cases of champagne, we also got some adorable bride squad swag including a Bling Ring Bottle Opener, Personalized Tumblers, Monogramed Tumblers and Cheers Bitches/Future Mrs. tank tops from Bachette (there are also similar ones on Etsy). We even stocked up on some personal accessories during a Pure Romance party. It really worked out well to have the two tumblers because we had one for alcohol and one for water when we went to the beach. To top off this perfect weekend, the bride-to-be also brought her little Yorkie Maaartin (yes, that’s three A’s)!

Pictures from the Weekend

This Memorial Day weekend, I was quite the NYC homebody.  I ventured close to home to Central Park, Queens, and Brooklyn.  Here are some of the highlights from my 2012 Memorial Day weekend.

I went to Central Park and to lunch with Cocktail Chic and her adorable dog Roscoe.  It was Roscoe’s first trip to Central Park and I’ve never seen him so happy.  At lunch, he needed a whole seat for himself because he won’t sit on the floor.  It was a total Hilton sister moment.

A cloudy and humid day in Columbus Circle.  This explains why there are no actual pictures of me in this weekend photo series.  The intense humidity of the weekend was unflattering to my hair and skin.  It’s going to be one hot and humid summer.

My mom, sister, stepdad, and cousin came into town Sunday on a whim.  We celebrated our Venezuelan heritage at an Arepa Cafe in Queens.  I’d love to return to the beaches on Venezuela someday.  But, for now, I’ll have to stick to NYC’s Venezuelan restaurants.

This box that sits on a bookshelf in my cousin’s apartment in Queens, basically describes my life an Aspiring Socialite.  I guess this city is full of dreamers.  I need to get a dream box of my own.

What to Wear this Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day is this weekend and chances are you will be kicking off summer 2012 at an outdoor party somewhere.  I usually save the red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July, but you can totally go the patriotic route if you’d like.  Here are two fab Memorial Day looks that just may make this weekend your most fashionable three-day weekend yet:

1.  Theme Ready or Nautical Dress: This sea breeze dress is the perfect summer ensemble that’s bound to flatter your figure while paying homage to summers of the shores of Maine.

2.  Butter London Lippy Trout Pout: A girl’s got to have her gloss!

3.  Sperry Top-Sider Milly Authentic Original Platform Pumps: These shoes are by far the star of this outfit.  Inspired by the classic deck shoe, you’ll be getting compliments on these shoes where you go.

4.  DVF Alexandra Oversized Sunglasses: Nicole Richie and her oversized sunglasses went from hot mess to just plain hot.  These are in honor of her and her journey.

5.  Citrine by the Stones Hemp Bracelet: An awesome touch to the navy blue nautical theme.

1.  Foley & Corinna Mid City Fuchsia: A simple pink bag for your not so simple life.

2.  Forever 21 Colorful Geo Bracelet: Love this Missoni-inspired bangle.

3.  DV by Dolce Vita Archer Hot Pink: Cute and comfortable!

4.  TOPSHOP Big Bird Playsuit: Playsuits are so in for the summer because they’re super fun.

5.  ASOS Articulated Colored Triangle Collar Necklace: Colorful like the summer sunset.

6.  Banana Boat Sport Performance Sunscreen SPF 30 Lotion: Sunscreen is always your best accessory.  I don’t want any of my socialite fans getting sunburned so always apply and reapply.
