Pretty in Pink

Dress: Ann Taylor c/o / Heels: Franco Sarto, old (similar) / Bag: Longchamp
Bracelet: Loren Hope via Rocksbox / Earrings: David Yurman / Flats: Fit in Clouds c/o

This pink Ann Taylor dress is so pretty to wear — I had big plans to wear it to a bridal shower last month until my work travel plans changed and I sadly could no longer attend. Its perfect for a daytime event — bridal or baby shower, brunch, etc., but could also definitely be dressed up with the right accessories!

Speaking of accessories, my new obsession are my Fit in Clouds flats.  They come in several cute styles and fold up so I can keep them with me on days where I’m not wearing super friendly shoes.  I’ve already stashed a pair in my car, another in my purse, and a third in my work bag. I love my heels, but never again will I be stranded with achy feet!

Don’t forget! You can get a free month of Rocksbox (a $19 value!) using my code rulesforthemoderngirlxoxo at checkout!

Plum Island

Plum_Island (1)

I can’t believe tomorrow it will May! This past weekend we took our first walk along the beach on Plum Island. It seems so surreal that spring is finally here. Sure the sand was a little chilly, but it felt fantastic to be outside without snowboots and a puffer coat. And aren’t the clouds amazing! I’d like to think the horrible winter was worth it, but I won’t lie there were moments I didn’t think this day would come! For months we battled mounds and mounds of snow. Our snowblower died mid-winter and mid-storm. There were weeks where I barely left my house and my main motivation for shoveling my front steps were out of concern for my postman more than anything else.

But spring is here! We saw about 10 other couples walking along on the chilly sand and met about 15 furry friends who were so excited to frolic in what I can only imagine were ice cold New England waters!


I have a busy spring ahead of me, so I don’t want to rush it too fast to summer! What are you looking forward to most this spring?  Let me know in the comments below! xx
