Vermont and mother nature provided us with an amazing day and backdrop for this shoot.  Considering the fact that my kids have been sick and I have been wearing the same outfit and sporting the no makeup/messy bun look for the past three days, these pictures are far from my reality right now, but I hope to find many occasions this summer to sport these pieces, especially the great earrings and bracelet I'm wearing here by one of my new favorite designers, Ashlee Kim.

My skirt was a sale find months ago at Anthropologie. It was marked down from 148.00 to....wait for it......29.95!!!!!! I love when numbers like that happen. That means I have 118.05 to spend on something else, right?  :)

My snakeskin braided bracelet, and my "look sharp earrings"are by a local designer here in Hoboken, Ashlee Kim. I was walking home from a hair appointment when I stumbled on a sample sale she was having. Her designs are all beautifully executed, and one of a kind. Her latest collection has a big industrial influence and I learned from Ashlee, that she gets a lot of supplies at Home Depot! Here's a necklace I'm putting on my birthday wish list. The other bracelet I have on, you can find here, and is by Stella and Dot.

My shoes are by Sam Edelman (click here!) and will be on SCF lots this summer. They are really comfortable and anything that gives me the illusion of being a couple inches taller, like a lucite heel, is a must in my closet. Thanks for reading!
