As someone who, for years, resorted to the classic black and white ensemble, I have a great appreciation for bright hues and standout accessories. While I will always cherish the beautifully classic monochromatic look, my mood is immediately uplifted while wearing bright pieces, like these neon yellow Old Navy sandals I discovered last month. They’re perfect for any occasion ranging from a lunch outing with friends to a simple weekend errand run.

I spent this week in New Orleans for a work conference, so this weekend I wanted nothing more than to catch up on life, relax and recuperate. After running errands, my mother and I ventured to a cafe in town called Straw Valley. It intrigued us as they’ve recently added a restaurant and raw bar to the cafe, and they host live jazz music every other weekend. The beautiful courtyard outside the cafe holds tables, cabanas, and a bubbling fountain. The area is incredibly serene, and though we went solely for coffee, we are looking forward to spending a Saturday night there for dinner.

The Little White Dress

One of my favorite pieces to wear in the summer is a simple white dress. It’s easy and usually more comfortable than jeans during summer’s hottest days. I try to look for versatility while shopping — I would love using the ASOS dress (#1) or Madewell dress (#3) as summer-to-fall transitional items. They would pair well with black tights and boots or flats in the cooler weather!

Favorite Beauty Buys

1.) John Masters Organics sea mist

2.) Lancome eye products (liner, mascara, shadow)

3.) Burt’s Bees toner

4.) Rimmel Stay Glossy lip gloss

5.) Juicy Couture “Viva La Juicy” fragrance

There always seems to be a select few beauty products I will utilize over and over again. I’ll make sure they tag along on my weekend trips, and usually I’ll have a small travel pouch inside my purse with the smaller items so I can use them whenever I need to. This John Masters Organics sea mist has been my favorite sea salt hair mist for years. I’ve tried a lot of different products, but this one has always given my hair that effortless beach wave look with the perfect amount of curl that lasts all day. I’ll usually run my fingers through my hair lightly once the spray is applied and my hair is completely dry for a softer look.
