With spring in full swing I am all about switching up my wardrobe with fun new footwear styles. I always struggle with wanting to wear cute, trendy picks BUT also need them to be comfortable, great quality + at an affordable price point. Well…my struggle is over because I found my go-to brand for new sassy shoes…Cecelia New York! Whether you are looking for some new spring sandals, some nice going out heels, styles that are good for work or play etc. Cecelia New York has AMAZING styles that look chic no matter what the occasion.
These two styles are my current obsessions because they are stylish, comfortable + they are easy to pair with any look. The gold Harper mules are perfect for dresses, shorts + a cut top, jeans + so much more. While the Vannah Heel is amazing to style with colorful flowy summer dresses, white jeans etc. Who doesn’t love a little ‘Pop Of Color‘ right?
Over the years I have definitely tried my fair share of shoes, brands + styles. Safe to say I am a bit of a shoe ‘addict‘ so when I discovered Cecelia New York I figured ‘hmm cute shoes’ but after a few days of wearing various styles from them I fell in LOVE! I can wear them all day without any discomfort, now that is a win!!! To not have to switch out of shoes midway through the day is so satisfying to be honest hehe :p
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.
I always felt leopard print was more of a fall or winter style but after stocking up on some chic leopard pieces from SHEIN, I am all for styling leopard for spring into summer! From chic tops to pretty dresses to stylish bottoms like this wrap skirt, leopard print is becoming my go to spring trend. Whether you want to add a little sass to your spring wardrobe for work or play, these pieces will have you swooning all spring long!
I can never get sick of a chic leopard moment + SHEIN is fully stocked on great leopard moments at an affordable price point!
This leopard skirt is perfect for date night or a girl’s night out. I paired it with a simple black ruffle off the shoulder bodysuit which I suggest everyone invest in! You can style it so many different ways year round + there are a ton affordable options everywhere!
I went classic + simple with my accessories. I am a firm believer black will always be in style so black patent leather pumps are a must-have for every fashionistas closet. I find myself wearing them constantly with so many different looks.
I wear this pearl Gucci belt constantly! It makes such a statement + is a great way to add a little ‘bling‘ to any ensemble.
Another key piece to add to your collection? A little black bag like this mini bag from Gucci. Fits all my night out essentials + matches with everything, definitely a must-have.

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!
Ready to get your bubba drink on? Check the new bubba Trailblazer with Straw out at your local Walmart or online HERE – now on rollback for $12.96!
I lived in NYC my whole life + never actually visited the Brooklyn Bridge! How crazy is that? But I guess when you are a local native in a city you often don’t take the time to explore your surroundings + what makes your city so unique + special. It took me moving to LA, being away from NYC for years + visiting again to finally explore iconic spots around NYC like the Brooklyn Bridge, Dumbo + so much more.
While I was so happy to see NYC again, I forgot what it was like to be a New Yorker. I used to run around the city all the time, catching trains + subways, hailing cabs + checking out new restaurants while shopping at my favorite spots. It was amazing indeed BUT living in LA where you can drive everywhere, not run to catch a train, not carry all your stuff with you (hey that’s what trunks are for :p), life is definitely different in LA vs NY. I was determined to make this NY trip the best so here was stop one of my NYC excursion.
I was so excited to head to the Brooklyn Bridge + had a vision of pulling off a Carrie Bradshaw esq look there (ICYMI – I am a MAJOR Sex + The City fan…I always considered myself a Carrie but as of late I think I am a Charlotte personality with Carrie style). Sooo while thinking up the perfect outfit I found this gorgeous ombre tulle skirt + instantly knew it was ‘the one‘. I am linking to some similar styles below along with the solid pieces I paired it with like this light blue blazer + beige crop top…letting the skirt take center stage.
I love stocking up on basic pieces like these because they go with every ensemble + look classy no matter what the occasion. I wear these nude pumps all the time + this belt matches with all of my dresses + top / skirt combos.
