    Sparkly White

    Ariyana had her first dentist appointment yesterday afternoon and she was excited to sit in the magical dentist chair, have her teeth counted and sparkled, and get a Cinderella toothbrush.  After her dentist appointment (which thankfully did not involve any crying, tantrums, or negotiations) we ended up getting our nails done and then we met up with Aneesh for dinner at Stella.

    I must admit I was surprised when I looked at the calendar yesterday and it was already September 1st. Even though I am looking forward to the fall  I feel like summer flew by so quickly.  And I am not sure I am ready to say goodbye to open toe sandals, light and flowy sun dresses, and summery white jeans yet.

    Fashion's Night Out-Tiffany & Co.

    I am excited to announce I am hosting Fashion's Night Out with Tiffany & Co. at The Natick Collection. The event, titled "Studio 57 at Tiffany & Co.", is a reference to a New York City iconic nightlight venue from the 1970's and will feature the launch of the Tiffany Era collection. This event takes place on September 8th from 6-9pm and will include a local DJ spinning inspired songs of the 60's and 70's, models, and plenty of food.

    The Era collection, which spells out L-O-V-E  is inspired by a 1970s ring design by Donald Claflin, a Tiffany designer from 1966 to 1977. Claflin was known for creating playful jewelry of a generous scale. Wide bangles and dimensional pendants gleam in 18K and sterling silver.  The designs are squared and slightly contoured, with the four sides serving as polished panels for Claflin's bold cutouts. The jewelry draws the eye to decipher its graphic lettering. Tiffany also offers its famous logo, T&CO., in this striking motif.

    I hope to see you out at Tiffany & Co. for Fashion's Night Out!

    Stylish Things: Vacation Edition 

    photo credit-my lovely cousin Puja

    This past week we were on vacation my with cousins and extended family at Solisterra Lake House cottage just outside Ottawa, Canada.  Our charming cottage was eco-friendly and was situated right on a sandy beach and quiet lake.  It was wonderful spending quality time together without the distraction of a T.V. or the internet. It was also a welcome change not wearing makeup, styling my hair, or thinking about what to wear for an entire week.

    One of my favorite things about vacation is having the time to read.  I brought along my new Kindle and was immersed in this book.  Of course reading is not complete without a drink right? I am not much of a beer drinker so I opted for a Shandy (beer + ginger ale) instead.

    I loved the look and feel of the rustic kitchen.  We all gathered here first thing in the morning to enjoy French pressed coffee, English tea, and toast.

    Julie cut peaches to make a warm fruit sauce for our pancakes. She made the sauce with fresh peaches, raspberries, butter, and maple syrup.

    My cousins rented two paddleboards and they were a huge hit with everyone. The paddleboards are so versatile and and fun because you can row while standing or sitting or you can lay down on the board and cruise along the lake.

    My cousin Vik (from London) made us Pimms + Lemonade. This classic British drink, which is almost as much of a tradition as tea, was refreshing and perfect for the warm weather.

    We were all amazed that Ariyana was content and entertained with a simple bucket and plastic container. She spent countless hours playing in the sand and water pretending to make pancakes and oatmeal for the fish.

    Every evening after dinner we would sit outside by the campfire, make S'mores, and admire the open sky  full of stars. I didn't see any shooting stars but my cousins spotted several of them.

    Stripes + Side Ponytails

    Zara tunic, Jacob jean jacket, Amrita Singh necklace, Loft sunglasses, BCBG clutch, Aldo belt, and Banana Republic Shoes

    Last Sunday, aside from going for a moring run, I pretty much took it easy and lounged for much of the day. But we did make a last minute decision to hit our favorite local spot, Gaslight, for dinner. I threw on this striped tunic and added a few fun accessories to finish off the look. All summer long I have been wearing similar outfits consisting of easy breezy dresses, bold and colorful pieces of jewelry, and fun and inexpensive sunglasses.
