Maxi Dresses

Definition of the maxi dress: slimming, stylish, sexy, comy-chic, accessible… and the list goes on! This dress could possibly be your best friend this summer—amazing designers are offering it in all types of vibrant patterns and colors this season.  Once a week, I try wearing one of the six that I own. They’re just so soft and comfortable; I mean it’s like an acceptable nightgown (based on comfy factor, of course).  Thrown on with a pair of stylish sandals, some long necklaces and bangles, you’re ready to go! Celebs such as Lauren Conrad and Jessica Alba rely on this dress to look stylish and sleek for a night out or dinner with friends.  Dazzle it up with a wedge shoe, loose wavy hair, and a pop of color on the lip with tarte’s rise and shine lip gloss in pink.  Heading to the beach or running some errands? Just as easily, you can dress this look down with flip flops and a side braid.

How are you accessorizing your maxi dress this season?

Fall Harvest

The Big City. Yankees vs. Red Sox. The Atlantic Coastline. The Northeast is known for a lot of things, but one of the most beautiful is our fall foliage.  The changing leaves and mountain landscapes are reason enough to escape the city for a weekend. This time of year the tri-state area also boasts a slew of amazing orchards and vineyards. Apple and pumpkin picking, hayrides, corn mazes, haunted houses, cider and wine tasting; from September-November these seasonal destinations  promise the perfect weekend afternoon.

Confused on where to go? Fret not my friend. I have compiled a short list of kid and adult-friendly hotspots; all of them are favorites of the staff here at tarte. So, this weekend rent a car or hop on the transit lines for an urban escape. Don’t live in the area? Or, did  I miss one of your family favorites? Please share some details in our comments box, we’d love to hear from you.
