Ok, not the gossipy kind but the statement making, breath taking, traffic stopping kind…like a chic dress like this one from Pink Lily! The second I spotted it on their site I knew I needed to have it + when I was planning my outfits out for my NYC shoot I knew this beauty was meant to be styled in a chic NYC way on the Brooklyn Bridge.
I couldn’t wait to wear this dress…it was my perfect Carrie Bradshaw moment…a moment I always tried to have while I was living in NYC but years later I was finally able to achieve it. It’s funny how time makes your style mature + allows you to feel confident enough to walk the Brooklyn Bridge in the rain in a tulle + floral print dress…it was one heck of a journey but I am so glad I am here.
I love this dress so much + after I posted it during a Pink Lily Try-On Haul on instastories it seems like ya’ll did too! I styled it with a moto jacket, a statement making Gucci pearl belt + white pumps. Whether you want to wear it to prom, a wedding, a special occasion or just a fancy date night…this piece is a total must-have + you will feel like a true princess!
While this dress is my favorite, I wanted to link to some more of my favorite Pink Lily Boutique pieces below. I have been shopping their site for over a year now + from dresses to sweaters to cute tops + more, Pink Lily has trendy, cute pieces at an affordable price point.

Whether you are heading to the beach, hiking in the mountains, or lounging by the pool, one thing is essential to survive these summertime activities…staying HYDRATED! So many times, I run out the door and forget a beverage—leaving me to buy non-reusable plastic bottles with drinks that get warm in under 10 min while out in the sun…BUT guess what, guys? I found a solution! The bubba® Trailblazer with straw!
In case you missed it, I have been loving bubba mugs + bottles for a while. They are a great alternative to non-reusable plastic bottles and keep your drinks cool (or hot during colder months) so that your drink is always refreshing. With an affordable price point available in-store or online at Walmart, bubba mugs have become my go-to for all things outdoors…but their newest style takes the cake when it comes to style, convenience + quality: their new bubba Trailblazer with straw!
What I love about the new straw bubba Trailblazer is that it keeps your drink cold for 24 hours! Yup, you heard me right. 24 hours!! How amazing is that? Now, you don’t need to worry about your drink getting warm while on a hike, at the beach, etc.
With the easy-open spout that is leak-proof when closed, the bubba Trailblazer is perfect for on-the-go adventures like hiking, biking, the beach, etc. and then in the most active of moments, it won’t leak!

I am finally back in LA after a long + busy week in NYC! While I LOVENew York, I must say it’s draining + takes the life out of me in ways it never used to when I was ‘younger‘ + living in NY hehe From running around the city, to carrying tons of bags, to walking + racing to catch trains, NYC is tough + is not for the faint of heart…especially during a rainy spring like this one. It rained basically everyday so it’s safe to say I am super excited to be back in super LA where I can wear my fav spring clothes year round :p
Since temps are heating up, May flowers are blooming + it’s officially spring, I am all about adding new chic styles to my wardrobe. My go-to one stop shop for all the cute trends? Red Dress Boutique! I love their styles, price point + amazing variety…honestly basically OBSESSED!
While I am loving tons of styles from Red Dress, I am sharing some of my favorite styles here! I am loving anything with a flutter sleeve, especially a printed midi like this dress. This Midi Dress is chic enough for date night, appropriate for work + the ultimate spring into summer must have! It fits true to size, retails for under $50 + is lightweight + comfy for all day wear.
My shoes + bag are also from Red Dress. This green ark bag is a total Cult Gaia dupe for under $70. I love the ark bag style so much I bought it in every color to match with all my spring into summer looks. Everyone asks if because of it’s design do things fall out or can you see through it…answer is nope…it’s basically perfect 😉
These shoes are my obsession. I love a good nude shoe, especially one as comfortable as this one. This chunky heel style is chic, comfy + also comes in black for fall!
This next outfit is my personal favorite. The silhouette of this white fit + flare dress is super flattering no matter what your body type + comes in a variety of colors to choose from. No joke, with blogging I do tend to be gifted pieces from various boutiques etc but this dress from Red Dress was something I was so in love with, I bought it in every color…just to make sure I can wear this style all the time!
From white to navy to red to pink, my closet is now filled with this style. It’s cozy, chic + affordable to stock up in. Retailing for under $65, this dress will become your favorite spring piece. It runs big so size down + the rope tie belt is adjustable to cinch in a way to accentuate your figure.

Summer time is just around the corner + with warmer weather comes bright, fun + bold colors when it comes to fashion + beauty. One of my favorite ways to express myself, my love for color + to accessorize any outfit is with a fresh mani! I am such a nail polish junkie. Ever since I was younger the one beauty must have I could never live without was a pretty manicure!
Whether I am feeling like a bold neon hue or something a little more natural, my manicure always showcases how I am feeling, what trends I am into + helps me feel put together on any day.
Lately, my go-to nail care + nail color brand has been Londontown! From their amazing variety of colors to their top coats, base coats + nail restore treatments, Londontown is the ultimate one-stop-shop for all of your nail essential needs. I am super picky when it comes to nail polish since quality is super important to me. I am always on the hunt for polish that doesn’t stain or damage my nails + also nail polish that lasts me a while (nothing is worse than a chipped manicure in just a few days), with Londontown, that is never a problem!
Londowntown has heavy duty top + base coats that leave all of their color polishes shine + stand out. Honestly the base coat is my favorite since it has hardening properties which helps strengthen my nails + prevent chipping (super key when constantly wanting perfectly manicured nails).
If the quality didn’t win ya over, the colors for sure will! I LOVE anything bright, bold + neon so I have been swooning over hot pink hues like their shades Summer Fling, Queen Of Hearts + Fruit Tella! I am also loving a few other neon hues like this bright orange color called Royal Wedding or cobalt blue called Iconic. These colors scream summer + are sure to make a statement.
If you are looking for something a little more subtle for everyday work or wedding season etc I love a pastel pink or nude hue like Out Of Office, Afternoon Tea, Waterloo Sunset + Candy Floss. These colors are great for having a chic manicure that matches with everything + looks clean + polished daily. I have been wearing light pink hues a lot since they blend well even when your nails are growing out a little bit.
