My late grandmother used to call me and say “Krissy, where have you been?” Mind you I may have spoken to her the day before but I guess unconditional love comes with limitless worry. I must admit it used to drive me crazy but now it is one of the things I miss the most.
Anyway, I know it has been a few weeks. So, in addition to counting down the days still school ends (say, what? I know, my kids are still in school) here is what I have been up to.
I have been reading a bunch of amazing books. I recommend them all!
May ended with another candle on the cake (more on that later) and a quick trip to Boston. No much to report on that trip other than dinner with my roommate from college, Gretchen. You have to love when you are such good friends with someone that it feels like you saw them yesterday instead of months ago.
After Boston, I headed to New York for a few days. Even on a rainy chilly day, the ocean looks beautiful.
I had lobster at Oaklands and Star Boggs. I also found this new yoga studio that just opened and is owned by a mother /daughter duo. I have had “Barre” on my list of things to try so I can finally check that off my list. I loved it. I “ran into” a few of my fav stores, Gloria Jewel, Calypso and Imrie. I also had a chance to go to my fav restaurant, Tutto il Giorno.
Here are a few things I picked up during my travels or was gifted.
Current Elliott The Fleet Admiral Jacket ( I got this at Imrie but avail at Saks and on sale)
JCrew Smocked Square Neck Top (this neck line is so flattering)
JCrew Strapless Cross Front Top (my fav)
Rodin and Fields Intensive Brightening Toner My virtual best friend sent me this plus a few other goodies for my birthday. I am sure it comes as no surprise that my VBF is a make-up and product junkie too. This toner is incredible.
CP Shades White Gauze Button Down (this is one of my fav brands). I got this at Imrie too.
Theory Cashmere Sweater It was freezing in Boston and I had packed my “Summertime Barbie” wardrobe so I picked up this pretty lightweight cashmere sweater. You know I love a gray cashmere sweater and white pants.
Rahani Slim Button Down Shirt ( also love the Army Green color)
Fresh Petal Lipstick This also from my VBF. I would describe it as heavenly.
Replica Beach Walk I cannot get enough of this fragrance that perfectly captures leisurely summer days on the beach. Keep in mind, I am wearing to work. Sigh…
I know I am not a model but I don’t think the pics above do some of these “must-have” pieces justice. I love an all white outfit. It is a no brainer. Looks so polished and classy.
Next up – Chicago. Here is the view from my fav hotel, The Park Hyatt. So pretty, right?
I hope your summer has gotten off to a great start.
