    Designer Spotlight: Friedasophie

    Recently I discovered Friedasophie on Etsy and I am in love with every single piece of jewelry in this store. Friedasophie jewelry is handcrafted in San Francisco using natural based gemstones and the prices range from $19 to $89. Any of these items would make excellent gifts for your mom, sister, a friend, or even just for yourself!

    I also wanted to let you know that my posts will likely be sporadic this week. Ariyana just got home from visiting my parents in North Carolina for over a week so I am hoping to spend a little extra quality time with her this week.

    Summer Beauty Essentials

    NARS Larger Than Life Life Lip Gloss $26 each

    Happy Monday everyone! This weekend Lani , Lissy and I took a quick girls trip to New York City. And while I hoped to get a few outfit photos from our dinner out Saturday evening unfortunately it ended up raining. But despite a few showers we still had a fabulous time chatting, eating, and of course shopping.  Lani and I even got convinced by Lissy and a few of our other friends at dinner to get a kindle and before the weekend was over we both ended up ordering one. I would love to hear back from you about some of your favorite book recommendations so I can start loading up my new kindle.

    Also today I am guest posting for Betsy over at Cool Kids while she is on a blog break and a relaxing beach vacation. Stop by to see my Top 5 Beauty Essentials for the Summer. It's all about experimenting with color and having fun with beauty products. You can also check out some of my other favorite beauty products all in one place here.

    Stylish Things 

    I am not  really a huge fan of animal prints but I adore the print of this shrug and love how soft it is.  I can't wait to wear it in the fall with either an all black outfit or with jeans and a simple white V-neck tee. (Lola shrug c/o CAbi)

    When I had dinner at The Gallows the other night our coffee was served with milk in this adorable cow creamer. It is so cute I had to go buy one this week. Don't you think it would make an excellent hostess gift?

    A routine lunch get together with my girlfriends at Scampo and all 4 of us ordered these refreshing and delicious mojito's with a splash of pomegranate juice. (IPhone photo)

    A new pair of classic black suede peep-toe pumps to take with me to New York city this weekend.

    Beautiful flowers that arrived on my doorstep last Sunday. (Also seen on my Facebook page )

    A handwritten note to send to my brother for Rakhi next week.

    Have a great weekend!

    The Gallows 

    Zara blouse (also seen here), Citizens of Humanity jean leggings, Madewell shoes, Adrienne Vittadini handbag, Chan Luu wrap bracelet, Loft necklace

    (special thanks to Rachna for taking this photo!)

    Last night I met up with my friend Arika and my sister Rachna for dinner at The Gallows in the South End. It was my first time eating here and I loved it. The people were so incredibly friendly and the food was simple yet delicious.  The menu is set up for sharing so the three of us ordered several small plates including gravy soaked poutine, BLT tacos, and striped bass ceviche.  

    And my goodness did we have some crazy weather in the evening. The temperature got a bit cooler and it was sunny one minute and the pouring rain the next. I decided to go forgo wearing a summer sundress and opted for this unseasonable yet weather appropriate outfit instead.

    Reader Request: What To Wear To A Reunion

    Stephanie, a loyal STYLE'N reader, contacted me because she is attending a reunion this weekend and is looking for styling options for this amazing dress she just purchased. It was hard to narrow it down but here are a few styling options I put together on polyvore.  The dress is so versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.  Stephanie can make the outfit casual by adding a pair of flat sandals and a cute tote or even belt the dress and wear it as a long tunic with jean leggings and a pair of flats. She can even dress it up again with a pair of nude or black heels for a dinner date out with her husband.
