Tuesday Tuneday: Fancay Schmancay

It's official: I've got the AC bug.

The boy and I are headed off on Friday for a much needed long weekend in Ocean City, NJ at a good friend’s summer home. I am beyond excited to soak up the sun, cruise the boardwalk, maybe invest in a few bro tanks (my YEAH BUDDY one from last year has fallen off trend…tear).

We will also be making the very short journey to Atlantic City for dinner at Amada in the Revel hotel. I am not a big gambler and have never been to AC. I guess unsurprisingly, I have also never been to Vegas. 

pretty swankster, no?

As a perpetual, somewhat intentional over-dresser who loves nothing more than throwing on heels and lipstick for a weekend dinner out (which is sadly borderline “too much” in Boston), I am beyond excited for the rare opportunity to go all out (and dare I say, a little slutty?) for our Sunday night dinner. 


There’s nothing better than a perfect dinner ambiance, and for me, that almost always means music. Here’s what I’d want to hear whilst sipping a swankay drank (my first dirty martini, perhaps?) in a trendy lounge in good ‘ol AC, trying to hold on to my last shred of summer…

10.   James Blake – Limit to Your Love

12.   Thievery Corporation – Lebanese Blonde
13.   Jem – Missing You
14.   Norah Jones – Turn Me On
