Trend I’m Loving: Off The Shoulder

If traveling to Montauk this summer has taught me one thing… it’s that off the shoulder tops are IN. I swear if you are in a summer wardrobe slump, just go to Surf Lodge on a Saturday night to see what some of the most fashionable girls in Manhattan are wearing this summer. From Illesteva colored mirrored sunnies to Loeffler Randall fringe flats, Montauk knows a thing or too about must-have summer wardrobe staples.

Anywho, after our last trip the other weekend I decided it’s about time I pick up some of these cute and trendy tops.

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite off the shoulder tops and dresses you can still rock the rest of summer! I promise your girlfriends will be asking how you got so trendy!

Happy Shopping. Xo. Lauren

Weekend Notes

Good morning!!! Happy Friday.

This week has been quite the whirlwind. It seems like summer is only speeding up. I’m off to Atlanta this weekend to visit one of my bestfriends from high school! Very excited for another weekend of rest and relaxation, that’s for sure!

A few links from around the web I loved this week. <3

Sales & Shopping

  • In case you need a new duvet in your life, you should probably pick up this one.
  • Thinking about upping my sun glass game for my remaining trips to the Hamptons. I lost my last pair of Illesteva’s (don’t even want to talk about it) but might force myself to get a new pair! Which do you like?

10 Lilly Dresses I’m Loving

You know I love a good Lilly dress (as seen here) during these warm summer months. Personally, they are great for me to wear to work and easy to transition to happy hour. What I love most about Lilly Pulitzer is that their dressers are super comfortable, bright and colorful. So today I’m sending West Palm Beach vibes your way with these 10 cute picks. Xo.

Coffee Table Books For The Girl On The Go

If you have been reading this little corner of the web of mine for a while, you might know about my obsession with coffee table books. I’m trying my damn hardest to expand my collection over time. I love how coffee table books can instantly dress up a book shelf, dresser or nightstand (they are my number one style accessory). And of course I love giving them as gifts. Coffee table books are one of the best ways to pretty up your home and express your personality and interests! You can read more about how to decorate with books right this way.

So with the increased travel that summertime brings on the east coast, I thought it’d be fun to share a few coffee table books for the girl on the go! A few I already have in my collection like How To Be Parisian and The Hamptons: Food, Family, History but there are many more that I need to pick up. You can click on the black and white + sign on the collage below to shop each book on Amazon. Happy Tuesday, friends! Xo. Lauren
