Easing Into Fall

The weather is playing tricks on us, again! One day you’re mad that you aren’t wearing enough layers, while the next day you’re trying to peel the skin off your body because it’s randomly and overwhelmingly hot. Until we are a few weeks into autumn, figuring out what to wear each day is a mission. Here are my four tips to starting off the fall season with style and comfort in mind, so that you’re ready to tackle whatever Mother Nature throws your way. 1. Fabric Matters You can never go wrong wearing a sport jacket. If you’re not required to wear a suit for work, make sure to stock up on a few sport jackets that are made of a lighter fabric. Keep the wool away until the temperatures really drop. I like to use a sport coat also as a jacket when there are warm days and cool nights because it is one less piece of clothing to worry about during temperamental weather.

I get easily bored, distracted, and find myself looking at the time, second by second as I wait for it to hit zero. When I want to get in …

Summers Down The Shore

I’m about to let you in on a little secret that might surprise you: the television show, The Jersey Shore is not an accurate representation of what life is like in the beach towns of New Jersey. Sure, the particular area that the show was filmed in does lives up to some of the things that were portrayed there, but outside of the tiny town that people identify the show with is a hidden oasis of picturesque beach communities.Lavallette is a tiny, quaint beach town I grew up spending my summers in. On one side of the island is the ocean and on the opposite side is the bay. Beach shops and boutiques line the streets and home made ice cream is available on every other block. There are staple restaurants like the Crabs Claw that you can roll into after a day on the beach wearing a tank top and swim trunks, snack on coconut shrimp, and dance to live cover bands belting out hits from Bon Jovi and Journey all night long.
