Bold, Glamorous, and Feminine {Summer Lookbook Tory Burch}

I think it's a lovely idea to mix a summer wardrobe with pre-fall.  Last year, I wore many of my summer outfits well into fall.  Where I live you can do that!  I love Tory's stylish bags, neutral stripes, cardigans and beautiful feminine dresses.  Visit Tory Burch see her complete Summer Lookbook.

Chic Furniture

I've had my eye on a few pieces of furniture for awhile and when I saw the new Trad Home Magazine online feature from designers, Lauren Gold and Sasha Adler, I knew I was on the right track.  Here are just two that I think would fit perfectly in my home.  You can see my post on their work by clicking here.

I found this stunning, chic wedding design over at Shorely Chic today and I told Liz that I had to share it with my readers!  It was designed by Joy de Vivre.  Imagine.....attending a wedding in Santa Barbara with this beautiful atmosphere.

I LOVE it all!

Chic Summer Dresses {Personal Shopper}

I was browsing around the web and found these beautiful simple dresses at Michael Kors to add to my summer wardrobe.  I can mix and match them with different sandals or wedges and dress them up or down with jewelry.  What's on your list for the summer?

What I'm Loving Now

I've had a very busy week and I've been thinking all day about what I should post today.  I actually had other things in mind to post, but when I visited the new, Trad Home at Lonnymag.com, I suddenly got inspired! 

This home is one word.....beautiful!  Lauren Gold and Sasha Adler of Nate Berkus Design did a magnificent job in creating and home perfect for a young couple with small children in Phoenix, Arizona.  It's stylish, traditional and definitely unique.  Of course, I love all the coastal details and I'm totally inspired by their good mix of colors and textures.  See for yourself and please let me what you think!  Do you love it, too?

Chic Bloggers and Their Coastal Kitchens {Catherine McCord of Weelicious}

It's my pleasure once again to share with you another, Chic Blogger and her Coastal Kitchen.  Her name is Catherine McCord and she is the author of a food blog entitled, Weelicious.  I was introduced to her website through Gweneth Paltrow's newsletter, GOOP.  Since then, I visit Catherine's site often and get great tips on cooking healthy for my family.

As I watch Catherine cook delicious recipes with her kids in her entertaining featured videos, I can't help but be fascinated by her fabulous white kitchen in the background!  It's a dream and definitely fits into my idea of a chic coastal kitchen!  I contacted Catherine and her PR person and they were happy to send me photos of her kitchen to share with my readers.

Enjoy her lovely photos and that gorgeous kitchen of hers in the background.

I love the big windows in her kitchen and the large island.

Personal Shopper

I recently ordered this outfit and didn't think much about it until I tried it on.  The top has a great contrast of cream and black and the eyelet shorts are so much fun!

Very simple and perfect for summer.  Just add a straw bag!

Bridgehampton Beauty

This beautiful Bridgehampton vacation home belongs to Nina Richter, her husband Greg and their 4 children.  They bought it in the hopes of transforming this once 1980's speck home into a home that has curb appeal and architectural charm.  Nina states, that the architect and designer definitely brought out the houses best features and now it is functional, comfortable and a prettier version of itself.

The front entrance is my favorite part of this home.
