Hazen had the unique opportunity to have a trunk show benefitting She’s the First in New York City over the past weekend! First off, if you haven’t heard of She’s the First, check it out here. It’s an absolutely amazing organization and we are so grateful to be able to support their endeavors. We had an awesome turnout, so as if that alone didn’t make the weekend, the opportunity to explore NYC was the icing on the cake! Check out some of Taylor’s favorite go-to’s in the city that never sleeps!

 

Bluestone Lane

Amazing coffee, pastries and Avocado toast (did you see our Insta about it? Simply divine)

 

Rosemary’s

Cutest atmosphere combined with a delicious meal made from ingredients grown on their Chelsea Rooftop.

 

Salvation Taco

Fun ambience in the heart of midtown. But wait, you’ll miss half of the experience if you don’t visit their amazing rooftop and try their frozen margaritas! Ahh-mazing

 

ABC Home

If you’re looking for just about anything, you can probably find it at this creative mecca!

 

Bergdorf Goodman

If there is one thing Taylor is going to do while in NYC, it is walk through Bergdorf’s and stop in their restaurant on the 7th floor. Whether for coffee, lunch or tea, Kelly Wearstler knocked the ball out of the park with the ambience. Plus, the newly renovated main floor means there is more beauty than ever to soak up

 

Looking for daytime activities? You simply can't go wrong strolling through Chelsea Market, walking the High Line or visiting one of the many incredible museums that the city has to offer-- especially the new Whitney!

 

So pack your bags, I think it might just be time for you to hop on a flight to the big apple!

 

As if you need a reason to visit Vail Valley, a friend of Taylor's living there fulltime has proved reason enough for Taylor to visit on a regular basis. During her visits, Taylor has developed her favorite dining and shopping destinations that we're excited to share with you!

 

 

SHOP

Perch is always Taylor's first stop and go-to shopping destination in Vail. From Alexis to Kelly Wynn and brands you don’t see in your hometown boutiques, Perch has a wide collection of fun, creative yet classic designs. In case your suitcase isn't overflowing after your visit to Perch, don't miss out on the top knotch selections at Blitz, Due & Luca Bruno

 

EAT

Grab an almond milk latte and hearty breakfast at Northside Cafe in Avon (their homeade ciabatta bread is to-die-for). Now that you're loaded down with bags from your morning shopping, lunch and sip rosé with a view at The Remedy Bar at the Four Seasons in Vail. Ready to hit the town? Dine on a creative meal in an amazingly designed interior at Boxcar. Finish off with a drink at Edwards' quaint The Rose. But don't stop there! Wake up and brunch at Vintage in Vail. The champagne float is a must and the mint green awning is definitely Insta worthy!

 

While there is a never ending list of amazing dining and shopping destinations in the Vail Valley, these are sure to impress. You may even just run into Taylor while you're there!

One of our favorite parts about the summer is that it always seems to make us appreciate the good ol’ days from when we were younger. Whether it be traveling to our favorite family vacay spot, or just reminiscing about a funny memory, we love talking about our top childhood stories. With her absolute love of the beach, it should come as no surprise that Taylor fondly remembers her time at the beach as one of her favorite summer memories from childhood:

"Spending many a birthday on the beach in Destin celebrating with close friends and family. There's simply nothing better than beach curls and bare feet are to kick off the summer."

 

Do you ever stop to think about your favorite childhood memories? Let us know one of your favorites!

 

Let’s be real, a girl can never have too many essential pieces in her wardrobe. Rumor has it if the shoe fits we should buy it in every color, so we certainly take that to heart and apply it to as many areas as we possibly can. Now when it comes to summertime fundamentals, we get the gimmes, so we’ve rounded up what we consider to be the essential summer must-haves:

Statement sunglasses

Floppy hat

Jack Rogers 

Off-the-shoulder top

Maxi dress 

Nude wedges

A new devotional

The most recent town & country mag

A classic country playlist 

Fresh bowl of berries always around...mmm! 

 

With these items, you’re sure to always look fabulous! What do you consider a summer must-have?

 

Over here at Hazen, we are suckers for a great romantic comedy and never turn down the opportunity to transform the new release of one into a girl’s night. This summer however, we have our eyes on something other than chick flicks hitting the big screen. Connecting with the inner child inside of all of us, we think everyone can grow excited about these new movies being released this summer:

Finding Dory

Ghostbusters

The BFG

Pete’s Dragon

 

Which one of these movies are you looking forward to the most? Let us know!

Hello, sweet sweet summertime! While we no longer have days off like we did when we were in college, summer seems to exude a more carefree and light mood from most, meaning we are so ready to soak up these summer days. Taking full advantage of the weekends and nights after work, we have created a short and sweet bucket list to achieve over the course of this summer. Here are our five to-do's for this summer: 

Have a picnic

Go on a roadtrip with best friends

Host an outdoor BBQ

Travel to a new destination

Bake an extravagant cake

 

We think these are totally attainable! Now, who's with us?
