End of Summer Beach Reads

I had a crazy long list of things I wanted to accomplish this summer... I didn't get to do all them, but I did do a lot! High on this list was getting back to reading. Summer is a great time to lose yourself in a book. I like to keep things light when reading on the beach, pool or vacations. If your looking to still squeeze a little "me" time in before the cool weather really hits, here's a quick round up of what I loved this summer.

1. Primates of Park Avenue: This is the book that Bravo's Odd Mom Out was based on. Having lived on the Upper East Side of New York years ago as new mom, I got a kick out of the author's observations and actually enjoyed it more than the Bravo series.

2. In the Unlikely Event: Having grown up on Judy Blume's books, I will always be partial to this author. Of all the books I read this summer, this was probably the heaviest in terms of sadness. The plot is based on a series of plane crashes that happened in the Newark, New Jersey area in the 1950s and how it forever shaped the characters' lives.

3. Everybody Rise: During our most recent trip up to Rhode Island I literally couldn't put this book down. It's a modern day version of Edith Wharton's House of Mirth that also mostly takes place on the Upper East Side.

4. A Window Opens: I'm actually still only halfway through this one, but enjoying it enough to give it a thumbs up!

5. The Knockoff: The lightest/fluffiest book of my summer reads...a lot of funny insights into our social media obsessed world.

6. Maybe In Another Life: My friend just dropped this one off - she raved about it and thought I would love it because she knows how much I loved the movie Sliding Doors!

New House, New Needs

Next week we'll be living here at our new place in Connecticut for ten months. What once felt like an overwhelming project is now settling into an enjoyable undertaking as I poke around looking for the last few finishing pieces for our home.  

The biggest project left to tackle is our dining room - this chandelier is high on my list right now. We still have a few large blank walls left, I'd love to fill one of them with a beautiful abstract by Jenny Prinn.  As we head into fall, I know from last year's winter that our family room can get need to fight over the throws anymore, now that Target carries such cute ones at such great prices ($18.99)! This dresser is perfect for my oldest daughter's room. And I still can't get enough blue and white pieces...this one is so pretty too!



Style Stalking: Kelly Nutt Design

I discovered Kelly Nutt Design via Instagram and found her portfolio to be full of so many great looking design ideas. Today, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite images as this month's style stalk. These beautiful rooms are so bright and happy, they almost take my mind off the fact that it is indeed...September! nooooo....
