As most of you may already know the Brennan family is moving back to New York!!!  After 4 years in North Carolina and what feels like 400 flights back and forth between NYC and CLT we have decided to move home.  While Charlotte and our friends here will always have a special place in our heart, NY is where we need to be now in our life.

Charlotte just like us has grown so much over the past four years and it will be a sad day when we finally have to say good-bye.  However, Charlotte to me has always felt like a layover in life.  My roots are strong in NY and have been pulling us back since we arrived making it difficult for us to ever fully settle in.  After many recent events we decided it would be best to move our family back to NY.

So without getting too emotional we are looking forward to opening up this new chapter in our life and returning to the place where we grew up.  With all of that being said there are so many exciting projects that I am working on and can’t wait to bring them to fruition once we are settled in our new home in NY.  Don’t worry Chic Series Community there will be more to come!

Two of the things I miss the most about NY are the city and the close proximity to the beach.  Dinner dates in NYC are among some of the best memories that I have with my husband, my family and my friends.  So to celebrate our return to NY I collaborated with Nordstrom to bring you three summer outfits that you can wear to my favorite spots in NYC.  All super affordable, comfortable and might I add very chic.

Desk to Drinks Summer Outfit

Dress // Sandals // Clutch // Earrings // Laura Mercier Lipgloss in Wildflower // Sunglasses

I couldn’t resist this vibrant pink wrap dress.  The classic cut and longer length makes it a versatile option.   This style easily transitions from a casual work environment to dinner outside at one of my favorite Italian restaurants Morandi.  Oh and did I mention it is only $98?!  If you prefer to stick to classic neutrals, don’t worry this style also comes in black and a cobalt blue!

Beauty Tip – Summer is the time to try a pretty poppy shade on your lip.  My two favorite summer shades are Sara Happ Fuchsia and Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Watermelon.

Summer Brunch Date In The City

This off the shoulder number is perfect for brunch dates.  It also comes in coral and looks cute with these flat slides in white.  Circle totes are a huge trend right now and I’m loving this one that fits all of the necessities and then some.  Take this pretty dress for a spin at two of my favorite brunch spots Cafe Cluny and Bubbys.

Beauty Tip – For a breezy summer scent try my absolute favorite Creed Virgin Island Water or for a less expensive option try Beach by Bobbi Brown.

Summer Soirée In NYC

Jumpsuit // Sandals  // Earrings // Sara Happ Lipgloss in Fuschia // Sunglasses

Jumpsuits have been my go-to for years.  Recently they have started to gain traction and I love this one for its classic color, flattering silhouette and versatility.  Pair it with statement earrings like these that come in multiple colors and you are ready to go.  Wear this pretty jumpsuit for cocktails at Santina or City Winery.

Beauty Tip – Instead of working against the summer heat work with it for your hair.  Embrace the humidity with some Dry Shampoo, a Curling Wand and Flexible Hold Hairspray.
