Isabel Marant Sale

There are some designers that do not go on sale very often, and when they do, you have to be quick because it sells out fast.
Isabel Marant is one of those designers, so if you love Isabel like me, now is your chance to score some great pieces.

Here are a few of my favorite sale pieces found on Foward by Elyse Walker

Mila Chiffon Silk Dress $1095 $657

Healthy Summer Skin

Have you ever seen those women, the women with the beautiful blemish, wrinkle free beautiful skin, that look younger than their years?
Well, that is not me. I wish I could go back in time and listen to all of the wise women who told me the importance of a sunscreen higher than SPF oil, or to not use a tanning bed, or wear a hat, my Mom is always in a hat, why didn't I listen to her?
So, now at 43, I am making my skin a priority, my health depends on it....

I have been drinking hot/warm lemon water for years now, but never first thing in the morning, drinking hot lemon water instead of coffee first thing in the morning was a challenge at first but now after learning  all of the health benefits warm lemon water first thing in the morning offers, it's a priority. One of the many benefits of hot lemon water is what it does for your skin, the vitamin C and antioxidants in the lemons is said to decrease wrinkles and blemishes, and gives your skin a healthy glow. You would be surprised with how many benefits certain foods, such as superfoods, can help in all areas of health, including your skin. I was recently checking out Aloha, which offers a ton of healthy recipes that include all kinds of superfoods.

Now look, I do live in the Hamptons and I am in the sun a lot and we entertain a lot, so what do I do to stay safe and still have that healthy summer glow?

Whether I am out running around or at the beach I keep my face protected as much as I can. The majority of the products I use can be found at Target, which for me is great because I have FORO (fear of running out). I have been using Olay products for years and lately I have been using this Olay Total Effects with Spf 30, it evens out my skin tone and protects it at the same time. If  I am at the pool or the beach I typically reach for Neutogena Age Shield it has great protection from the damaging rays and doesn't clog my pores.

To scrub all of this off and give my skin a healthy glow, I love this Olay Pro X cleansing brush, it gently unclogs my pores and gives my skin a fresh no make-up needed look

 I almost always use a bronzer, even in the summer, I always have my sunglasses on, and always have a white raccoon mask around my eyes, so I use a bronzer to fill in my ridiculous tan line and even out my skin. I do bounce from bronzer to bronzer, but I always seem to have one from Physicians Formula in my make-up bag, it gives you a natural glow and I love that the bronzer has a Spf , added protection right? 
In the evening for that gorgeous dewy warm glow I reach for Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer No 3, this stuff is amazing!!

We have our skincare covered so grab a hat like this one from Brixton, a pair of sunnies with UVA protection like these from Komono and a Superfood Vitamin C packed Sangia to give you a natural glow from the inside out, and get out there and enjoy your summer the healthy safe way a healthy Sangria

Memorial Day on My Mind

Still trying to figure out what to pack for your Memorial Day getaway?
It's still a little cool here in the Hamptons so I am thinking this shirt dress from NSF would be perfect for the holiday weekend

A shirt dress is a great wardrobe staple, throw it on over your bathing suit on a cool beach day, throw it on for a walk through town or out for a casual dinner

I also love these shirt dresses from MiH and Acne Studios

These Shirt Dresses from Forever 21 are Effortlessly Affordable & Chic to boot

Memorial Day Essentials

Excited is an understatement that Memorial Day is finally upon on! I absolutely love living in the Hamptons, and suddenly the weather has warmed up, the beaches are open, the trees are all in bloom and the energy that is the Hamptons has returned to our beautiful streets. I love the energy of all of the villages that make up the Hamptons, whether you are running, walking, biking or strolling though town for ice cream after dinner you can't help but feel it.
But maybe the Hampton's isn't your spot, maybe it's the Shore (which I love too!), either way I think we are all so excited that the cruel weather is behind us and sunny beach days are ahead.
So, here's the question what are you packing for your Memorial Day getaway??? Here are a few beach weekend essentials...

First of all we need a great weekend bag to pack all of our essentials in and I love this one from Maaji, big enough for all of our essentials and not too big to schlep on the Jitney or train.

If you are lucky enough to be staying with friends in the Hamptons or the Shore this weeekend you definitely need a cute pair of PJ's to lounge around in and this set from Eberjey is perfect, wear the slouchy top  with shorts or pants

Headed to the beach.....
Don't forget your beach bag this one from 6 Shore Road is perfect because it packs flat leaving a little more room in your bag for some Memorial Day shopping!

You will definitely need a hat for the beach or pool I love this hat from Old Navy and this one from Athleta

Ok ladies, bikini or one piece???
If you are hoping to get out on a paddleboard Memorial Day weekend I'm crushing on this rashguard from Old Navy 

Don't forget the Cover-up
Love this from Gypsy 05 and this one from Blue Life, I also love this kimono from Old Navy , when packing for a beach weekend I typically pack one pair of metallic flip flops that I can wear with anything like this pair of Havaianas

For stolling through town, the boardwalk or the farmers market don't forget to pack a pair of great vintage Levi's, (i don't go anywhere without mine), pair them with this  Rails button down,  these classic neutral sandals from Ancient Greek, a cool tote, and an awesome pair of sunglasses like this pair from Karen Walker

If you are in the Hamptons and are headed out to The Surf Lodge , Sant Ambroeus, Stone Creek Inn, or tutto il giorno a go anywhere romper like this kimono romper is the perfect choice paired with a killer wedge like these from Saint Laurent and a classic clutch with a pop of color
like this from Clare V

And last but definitely not least the sunscreen, please remember the sunscreen it may be cool on the beach but the sun is strong!!
I always use Neutrogena Age Shield on my face, my boys who are always either in the ocean or in the pool love this Ocean Potion Clear Zinc, it never runs into or burns their eyes, and to be completly honest I always have plenty of
Up & Up Sunscreen on hand
