Jack Rogers are without a doubt my favorite summer sandal. This classic and elegant shoe was born in the lovely isle of Capri, and became popular in America by Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
Even though Jack Rogers are on the expensive side for a sandal, I think they are worth the splurge because of their versatility - in my book they go with almost any summer outfit. And anyone who has a few pairs of Jacks knows that this stylish sandal rarely goes on sale, but this weekend Lord and Taylor
is offering 25% off almost their entire stock
for their Friends and Family
sale. The promo code for the sale is FRIENDS
I think given this generous discount it is the perfect time to scoop up a pair of Jack Rogers. The classic Jack Rogers Navajo sandal usually retails for $105
, but with this discount they are down to $78.75
three looks for the weekend that each incorporate a different Navajo sandal - each item in these looks is $60 or less
- except for the sandals...Will you be picking up a new pair of Jack Rogers this weekend?Happy summer shopping!

This lightweight slub henley from Michael Stars would make a great top for summer...except for the price tag that is close to $100!
Every year I find that some how my beloved t-shirts that I adored so much the year before always seem to lose their shape the following year...don't you agree?! So come springtime I'm always on the hunt for a lightweight cotton T that can be my go to basic top to pair with jeans and shorts over the summer. Well a few weeks ago I picked up this comfy cotton t-shirt from the Gap
in grey and I'm in love!
This t-shirt runs a little large so I would go with your normal size or size down. I dry everything completely now that I'm doing laundry for three and a little time in the dryer made my regular size the perfect fit.I like this T so much because it is has a slight scoop neck and the arms are in between the length of a tank top and a regular tee. I think that this cut of neckline and sleeve is very flattering and less constraining than your average short sleeve T, but it also provides a little bit of coverage too.This t-shirt retails for $19.95 which is not bad, but you know the Gap always has some kind of promotion going these days so I'm sure you can scoop it up for a little less! I have to go back to buy it in white - I know I will wear that all summer long!And in the meantime of course I had to get the nautical coral stripe version when I saw it...you know I love a good striped tee!
Do you have a favorite new t-shirt for summer?
Sorry to be gone for so long! I hope you all had a great long weekend.
Whenever the warm weather hits I cannot wait to break out my favorite bright accessories, white jeans, and summer dresses.
Here are two looks - work and weekend - to get you ready for the summer weather!
Almost every item featured here is $70 or less except for the white denim from J.Crew. I think a good pair of white jeans is definitely worth splurging on, and I love my J.Crew white denim!
Here is my summer look for work...
And a more casual look for the weekend - I can't tell you how much I love this straw tote from the Gap!
Did you pick up any great deals for your summer wardrobe this weekend?
This weekend I made my first trip to the Short Hills Mall - I must officially be a Jersey girl now right?! The Short Hills Mall is no joke - Van Cleef Arpels, Hermes, Neiman Marcus, Tory Burch - this mall is home to just about every designer brand that I love!But even though I took a short detour to drool over some beautiful baubles and enamel bangles, the reason for my trip was to buy a new pair of summer sandals.This LUXE pair from Tory Burch immediately caught my eye, but at $195
it's price point is a little steep for sandals...
Do you think either of these styles are comparable to the Tory pair, and is $65-$69 for a pair of simple summer sandals LUXE OR LESS in your opinion?
I have been in the market for a new perfume recently, but as usual I have been hesitant to commit to a new scent out of fear that I will have to drop over a $100 on a perfume that I won't love a week later.The classic Chloe perfume is what has been at the top of my wish list recently, but I didn't want to splurge on a whole bottle - well I was so excited when I found the rollerball version of Chloe for just $25 at Sephora last weekend!I'm loving my new perfume so much that I will probably invest in a new bottle soon, but for now I'm reveling in the low price tag and the ability to "test drive" my new scent for just $25!Buying rollerball perfumes is a great way to fit luxury perfume into your budget - here is just a sampling of some of the luxury perfumes that you can find at Sephora or your local department store. All of these perfumes are $32 or less in the rollerball bottle!Do you have a favorite scent that I should check out soon?
Happy belated Mother's Day to all you moms out there! I hope that you all enjoyed a relaxing Mother's Day with your families this weekend.One of my gifts from my sweet husband was this Chewbeads necklace that I had been hinting at for awhile....
My daughter has been putting everything in her mouth lately, including my favorite bangles and necklaces, and so I wanted something that was a little more child friendly than my DY bracelets for her to suck on!I love this basic black necklace, but Chewbeads offers a variety of styles and colors too...I think I may be in the market for one of their pink or turquoise necklaces soon! Here is a peak at some of the other styles and colors they have to offer...
My daughter loves the way this necklace tastes, and I love being able to wear jewelry without worrying about it breaking in her mouth - and at less than $40 it is relatively affordable!

As I continue to work on decorating our new home I'm always looking for creative and low cost ways to decorate our house for less.
A few weeks ago I stumbled upon these state/country prints by Q.A. Design
over at Effortless Style
and I fell in love. I immediately went to Q.A. Design
to check them out....
I love the idea of decorating with something personal to you - like a state or country that you call home or where you have shared special memories with loved ones like a honeymoon or a vacation. I also love bright colors and stripes, so these prints spoke to me right away!And what's even better about these prints is that the fabulous and talented designer, Jenna from Q.A. Design, is now offering them for free to print on her website!
Just click here
for more details.I ended up buying these white frames from Target that were only $3.99 and put them in our downstairs bathroom which was looking way to bare! We printed NY, NJ, CT, and Cape Cod...four places that hold a special place in our hearts!
Thank you Jenna for offering these fabulous prints to your readers for free!
One of my close friends recently told me how much she loved her Rock Star Skinny color denim jeans from Old Navy, and upon her recommendation I of course went straight to the Old Navy website to scoop up a pair. Once I got there I was disappointed to discover that these jeans were sold out in almost every size. After perusing Old Navy's site tonight I just saw that they have replenished their stock in color denim - and now in lighter more pastel colors for spring. The Rock Star Pop Color Jean
is just $34.50
I have not tried these jeans on myself but I plan on buying a pair tonight!
