Memorial Day Weekend w/ Lane Bryant
Q: What do you get when you take 4 friends, a summer house, fabulous plus size clothing c/o of our friends at Lane Bryant & a few days of great weather?
A: You get the most epic 3 day extravaganza filled with love, laughter, friendship and A LOT OF GOOD LOOKS!!!!
AKA ... YOU. GET. THIS.......
Honestly, the key to a great weekend getaway with the girls is, in fact, the girls! But it didn't hurt having some fantastic looks provided by our friends at Lane Bryant! From Cacique Lounge to Cacique Swim, Lane Bryant Dresses and Casual Looks, we were covered for every inch of our girls trip! Keep reading to see what I wore, what we did, and how much time we spent laughing our faces off!!!
We arrived to the Hamptons hungry and tired from a long trip out. After settling into our place, hanging our clothes (hello, I'm a stylist y'all... its all about organizing the wardrobe!) and making a plan for the next day, we decided to get on our dresses and hit the town!
We headed to Tutto Il Giorno (a group favorite) for a lovely al fresco dinner under a beautiful summer sky! Honestly, the sentence sounds so extra but our dinner was beautiful and perfect and deserves an extra description like that! We spent the night chatting, catching up and laughing while we sipped wine and stuffed our faces with delicious desserts (hello affogato, my love).
Honestly, a lot of the time we spend together is work related (and this trip was, as well). But we spent this ENTIRE dinner sharing old family stories, talks of friendships and tales of trips and boys. It was really refreshing to be able to actually chill with the girls, it was long overdue!
I wore this gorgeous floral chiffon midi dress to dinner and fell in LOVE. I don't have a lot of blue in my closet but TRUST, I am going to be adding lots more. LOVE the bright happy feeling of this look.
Some style notes; The high neck is modest but still sexy with a little peek-a-boo detailing and the ruffle hemline is so flirty!
Size Note: I am wearing a size 22/24 and am 5'7".
All of us in our print dresses (all available now @ 40% off!!)
After we filled up on wine, we hit the hay for a good night sleep , knowing well we were in for a long day of pool & fun!
CHIC BLACK CACIQUE SWIMWEAR FOR THE WIN!!!! AMIRIGHT????
Love that we all mix/matched our looks to create a gorgeous, chic black and white story. Personally, I wear a lot of black in general (comes with the job I guess), but I love having a chic black swim look - especially for vacation because its easy to accessorize with!
I am wearing the Balconette Swim Top & Side Slit Skirted Bottom. I prefer modest coverage (and my marshamallow white stomach prefers not to see the sun and burn like bacon), so this suit was PERFECT for me! I typically swap a skirted bottom for an ultra high waisted bottom (like Maddy has on) throughout the season.
Style Note: Want a super chic look? Pair with all black accessories and a red lip for a Hollywood glam effect!
Size Note: I am wearing a 20 on the bottom and a 44DD (my bra size) on the top. Cacique swim tops with the bras fit so true to size and provide so much support!
This casual look was MADE for the HAMPTONS!!!
A chic linen trouser can take you from the farmers market to shopping to cocktails on the terrace, if styled correctly! The key to getting it right? Easy, light layers in muted tones that compliment the lhjadeof your pant. Trust me, it works EVERY SINGLE TIME.
SHOP MY LOOK:
Size Note: I am wearing a 22/24 in the linen.
I do think an 18/20 would have fit fine, but I wanted a loose and slightly oversized / more relaxed feel. PLUS, these are loose enough in the waistband where I can put them over a bathing suit or bodysuit and it will look polished and put together!
After a fun filled day, we spent the night lounging and laughing with face masks on! All wearing our Cacique Loungewear (and comfortably living our best lives), while playing HEADS UP!
There is NOTHING better than waking up to a sun filled house & enjoying your cup of coffee out on the deck! We had the most perfect weather for our getaway.... and I had the most perfect ruffle chemise cacique loungewear!!!
Time for some fun in the sun.... with our bright, bold swim! Ya know, for the times when the chic all black just isn't enough.
The colors in this season's cacique swim collection ARE SO GOOD!!!
Another killer built-in bra swim top situation! I am telling you guys, if you haven't tried these, you have to get on it. The support is unreal and the fit is true to size - to your bra size @ Cacique.
Size Note: I am wearing my bra size, 44DD in the swim top, and a size 20 in the high waisted bottoms.
What is Memorial Day Weekend without a proper BBQ!!!!
We prepped tons of family recipes, grilled up to the max, had some cocktails and danced around the pool! Honestly, this was the BEST part of the trip <3 , just laughing and celebrating each other.
Size Note: I am wearing a 22/24 in the top, a 20 in the shorts.
Style Note: THESE SHORTS ARE INCREDIBLE. SO much stretch, so comfortable, high rise, and just enough leg coverage (for me, personally). SO SO SO GOOD. So much so, I am buying another pair with the 40% off sale! These babies are in summer rotation starting NOW!
Kelly hit the grill first for her incredible burgers and then I jumped on for skewers and corn...(and enjoyed some cold beverages whilst over there!).
And what would a holiday weekend be without a full holiday moment....

Size Note: While this swim top doesn't have underwire, there is plenty of support!
I am wearing a Size 20 in both cacique swim pieces, top and bottom!
Partnering with my friends at Lane Bryant for a weekend getaway with three of my absolute favorite girlfriends seemed like a no-brainer. We live in #lanebryant for our day to day, and we love working with brands that are authentic to who we are and what our lifestyles entail!
And while this is a PAID partnership with LANE BRYANT, everything in this post is my own opinion and 100% honest because, DUH. I keep it real!
MANY Thanks for MYAH JONES, for being our amazing photographer.
BIGGEST thanks of all, always, to my LANE BRYANT FAMILY.
Til' next time....
