If someone were to ask me what my favorite time of year is, I'd have to say the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale... 

Ok, well it definitely isn't my favorite part of the year, but it's definitely up there with Fourth of July and Thanksgiving. The shopaholic in me loves nothing more than getting amazing deals on items that are in-season and brand freakin' new. Plus, as mid July rolls around all I can think about is fall so the jackets, jeans, and booties this sale has to offer are right up my alley. 

I'm sure you've all seen a million roundups of the #NSale by now, but since the sale doesn't open to everyone until Friday I wanted to wait to share some pieces that hopefully won't be sold out by the time we can all get our hands on them. The Nordstrom sale is by far the best place to stock up on basics or finally splurge on a designer item you've been wanting. 

As a broke college student I'm all about the affordable investment pieces, so I've focused this post on all the best items under $80! You can find great pieces in the sale, like these booties or this moto jacket, that won't break the bank and I guarantee you'll wear for years to come. And for those of you who don't live near a Nordstrom they have ah-mazing online return policies, so go forth and order to your heart's content (just keep telling yourself you'll return some things ;))

One of the highlights of my weekend on Long Island was Lavender By the Bay in Marion. The lavender season is incredibly short, so I lucked out that the weekend I was visiting my friend was the weekend of the bloom. Visiting the fields was just absolutely magical and I couldn't believe that this spot existed just a couple hour drive from the city. The drive out to the lavender fields was just vineyard after farm after another vineyard, exactly what a New Yorker needs on a weekend trip. Next time I need another break from constant car horns and exhaust, you know this is exactly where I'll be heading.

Just before heading out of the city I found this perfect top on sale at Zara, but unfortunately I can't find it anywhere online. Luckily, I've been able to find a few other similar options that will give you the same feminine boho feel!

Does anyone else feel like they are still recovering from the holiday weekend? I felt like a zombie yesterday and so far today isn't any better, so the fact that I have a post up today is basically a miracle. My weekend hangover is well worth the amazing fun I had over the 4th though, and I have a few really gorgeous posts coming up from my short trip out to Long Island. 

While I love boats (they are the only moving vehicle I don't get motion sick on), I'd never actually been on a sailboat before, so when my friend and her boyfriend took us out on his family's sailboat this weekend I was shaking with excitement. Of course, I had to put on a red white and blue inspired nautical outfit and snap about a million pictures!

Getting shown around by my friends was the best! Annie was incredibly embarrassed we had matching stripes, but I loved it :)
It may look like I'm right at home driving the boat, but let me tell you - I was so freaked out I was going to run into an imaginary iceberg.

Happy hump day everyone! Things are a bit crazy in work and life this week as I prepare for the long weekend, but I wanted to share these photos from the weekend.  My friend suggested we head over to Dumbo for the evening, and boy was I glad he convinced me to leave Manhattan for the night. The sunset over the skyline was just gorgeous and the way the light hit the carousel pretty much blew me away. 

You may be thinking, wow Caroline only wears that new romper she put up on the blog last week, and while that is actually very true, this look is actually two separate pieces that are both oldies but goodies. I wore both this top and the shorts a lot last summer, but they're just too easy not to throw on for an evening of exploring. I've linked to a few of my favorite similar options below!

Summer holidays have always been some of my favorite days of the year. Not only do you get the day off school or work, but a back yard barbecue or day at the beach is basically my heaven. Even better is the fact that I can break out all my red, white, and blue pieces without anyone giving me weird looks.

This year Memorial Day was a bit of a wash out, so I'm crossing my fingers that the 4th stays sunny. While my plans aren't entirely figured out, I will be heading out to Long Island for a bit to stay with a friend and get some much needed fresh air. I can almost guarantee my look for the 4th will consist of denim shorts and a striped top, but I've been tempted by a few dressier pieces like this romper or this blouse. Just writing about the 4th makes me dream about seafood, sun, and friends -- thank god it's only 10 days away! There are also some amazing holiday-made pieces on sale right now like this To the Beach tote for only $25. Plus, if you shop today you'll be able to take advantage 50% off everything at Ann Taylor and 50% off sale at J.Crew. 

I'll be sharing more of my Fourth of July style in the next week as well as my guide to Rockport, where the picture above was taken, so make sure to stop by Monday!

With the beginning of summer and the start of my internship I realized that I seriously needed a break from the social media and blogging world. I always love taking pictures and writing posts, but sometimes it's nice to just live life for a while without thinking about putting on a picture worthy outfit or bringing my camera along. However, after a little more than a week detox I'm back and definitely re-inspired. 

This weekend I also picked up this adorable romper from Loft that is not only in my favorite summer style, off the shoulder, but is also the perfect day-to-night piece! I wore it all day for brunch with friends and tanning in Washington Square Park and then all I had to do was throw on a pair of chunky heels and the look was perfect for a night out. Unfortunately, the romper is sold out online, but I've linked to a few of my other favorite options below!

On another note, I've written about Caffe Dante before, but truly it's my new favorite brunch spot! Everything is so delicious and getting to sit outside looking over the painted brownstones on McDougal is the perfect place to catch up with friends.

Just popping in quickly today to share a few pictures from my gloomy memorial day in Cambridge. After a week of gorgeous weather Memorial Day was a wash out, so instead of heading to the beach my mom and I headed into the city to do some shopping and exploring around Harvard Square in Cambridge. I'd only every walked around the Harvard campus in the fall (think classic New England foliage everywhere), and didn't realize just how gorgeous and green it would be in early summer. That being said, I apologize in advance for the picture overload :)

On another unrelated not - I'm just about to start my third day at work and it's been just amazing. However, getting back into full time work mode and trying to soak in everything about the projects I'm working has been draining all the energy out of me, hence the limited writing in todays post.
