Refined With a Big Dose of Fun

LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton was the location for the photo shoot for today’s post. It truly is majestic, tranquil and not to be missed!! In this elegant sculpture garden and art museum, I felt so at peace, yet energized, as I strolled through the 16 acre property. The OOTD is an extremely comfortable two piece outfit in black and white. It is such a versatile ensemble and with a cashmere wrap or long flowing sweater, this can easily go well in to fall. A simple black flat works just as well as a strappy heel for this duo. This is close to a perfect outfit (if there is such a thing). There is no, “What should I wear with this?” It’s ease puts the exclamation point on the perfection. I chose my over-sized Chanel sunglasses to go with the beautiful day. I couldn’t have been more comfortable during the time spent at the reserve and still felt like I looked good enough for my dinner reservation at Serafina! ……..which was so fortunate because I think I failed to mention the super stretchy fabric!! Perfect for a big dinner out!

Don’t forget: It’s Fashion Week, Peeps!!!

Flower Power

When recently poking through a favorite boutique of mine, I came across this little gem. This light, cotton gauze dress is so feminine and even a little sexy without being revealing in any way. (How rare!) The daisy flower appliques adorn the sleeves and bust area. The dress is a slip on empire waisted, loose-fitting piece with free-flowing sleeves. I paired this casual dress with coral Havaianas flip-flops that also happened to have a daisy decoration on the strap. This is a unique, yet perfect dress for a beach party, summer concert, shopping, lunch with friends, or just about any occasion.

It is a perfect choice if you’re short on time, as it is effortless to pull off. Lucy Love is the designer and she is now on my radar!
