I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! It’s official, I am fully embracing fall + that means time for floppy hats, booties + plaid! When I got this dress from Amaryllis, I knew it was going to become one of my fall staples for so many reasons. 1. It is slimming (I mean hey that’s what my BF told me haha I will take it :p), 2. It matches perfectly with these white booties I became obsessed with as of late + 3. It is comfy, stylish + is perfect to wear for work or play!
While I am loving this dress, honestly there are so many great pieces from Amaryllis that I think I am going to have you hooked 😉 #SorryNotSorry
Amaryllis has become my one stop shop for all things fall. From chic apparel to stylish accessories, they have everything you need to create the perfect look for fall. My favorite part? They are size inclusive, which to me that means a large size range. They go from Small to 3x! Isn’t that amazing? I for sure love it when a brand carries pieces for everyone.
This dress comes in 4 colors…black, white, navy + pink AND is available in all sizes, it will be on repeat all season long…just watch. Plus, it retails for under $35, now that’s what I call a steal!!
I fell head over ‘heels’ for these white booties the second I spotted them. Best part? They are under $40!!! No joke…aren’t they cute?!
Naturally I paired my bargain shoe find with a little Chanel because I am a firm believer in mixing + matching high + low no matter what the occasion 😉
Fall wouldn’t be fall without a floppy hat moment. I love this hat so much I bought it in 3 colors…it’s from Kohl’s + retails for under $26!
Top O’ the morning to ya and Happy St. Patricks Day! What better way to show a little green than with one of these picks from my spring trend guide?! Last week I shared some of my go to spring footwear (which all retail for under $150…yes…spring footwear that is affordable!) but today’s shopping guide is all about that green. I love color year round, and normally I gravitate towards blue, pink or red, but I am slowly beginning to embrace green as well.
It’s #ShoesdayTuesday and what better way to put a little ‘Spring‘ in your step than with a round up of the top footwear trends for spring…everything from neon, to fringe to white pumps to nude sandals…the shoes you’ve been looking for all in one place AND all at affordable prices (nothing over $135!hey I know I am not the only girl on a budget here :p)
One of my favorite parts about spring is being able to show off a fresh new pedicure, ditch the layers of socks and boots and feel girly and free…I am not a winter person (anyone who knows me that comes as no surprise…I despise the cold and opt for a nice 60-70 degree temperature everyday).
The only issue I have with spring/summer footwear? The marks and blisters I get on my feet…normally with the right footwear I am ok, but I actually got this cool new product called ‘Sole Serum‘ sent to me over the weekend and I figured I’d give it a shot while testing out my new blue pumps (which of course are in my shopping collage). All in all it’s pretty awesome! It comes in a cute little green tube and with just one squirt you rub it on the balls of your feet, ankles and anywhere else you typically get foot pain and voila! Pain is gone…it’s like a numbing cream for heels and it’s amazing.

Ok…I know you all are going to yell at me and say ‘What Are You Thinking?!” wearing a skirt in the dead of winter. Well as I’ve shared with you guys before, I shoot multiple looks ahead of time (this way when temperatures are below zero I am not freezing my little butt off wearing my ever favorite skater skirt!). So this little ‘Trouble Maker’ was shot in…drum roll please…October! Yes…You heard me October. My iPhoto library is a never ending catalog of Missy approved outfits just waiting to be posted so in a way this look is a ‘FlashBack Friday’ hence why it isn’t weather appropriate…Now that we cleared the air as to why I am not covered in goosebumps here haha let’s get to the fun stuff…A) The fact that it is Friday and the start of a much needed weekend after my first full week at my new job + B) Breaking down today’s outfit details 😉This look was based around this Rock & Republic scoop neck scuba sweatshirt from Kohls (on sale now for $25!). When I spotted it in Kohls I just knew I had to have it because if you ask anyone that knows me…it’s safe to say I am the occasional ‘Trouble Maker‘ (oops).In order to dress up an otherwise ordinary sweatshirt I paired it with this cute gray quilted skater skirt from Charlotte Russe (which is only $12…total must have!). I love a good skater skirt and especially anything with a quilted design…what can I say it reminds me of Chanel haha!Another reason I love this outfit? It encompasses my two current obsessions…a Pop Of Color + Studded Pumps (which in reality have always been obsessions of mine!) I scored this orange satchel at Last Call Neiman Marcus as a last minute find, but I found two similar options here + here. My black rockstud pumps aren’t Valentino my loves…they are from Necessary Clothing for under $30here! Yes…it’s a god send that I am thankful for every day 😉Every outfit needs a little bling! cc: Kendra Scott Naomi Ring + Michael Kors Silver Chonograph WatchI wish the weather would actually warm up so I could wear an outfit like this out again 🙁 But hey that’s what makes New York, New York right folks? I am off to work (I barely got any sleep between setting up this post and getting distracted by the newest episode of ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’…if only Patti could set me up with my perfect match…I already have the wedding essentials down pat working at Kleinfeld!)

Sparkle, Sparkle…it’s almost time for the biggest party of the year (and no I am not referring to NYFW or the Met Gala)…I’m talking about New Year’s Eve 2014! While I still have absolutely no clue about what I will be doing the night the ball drops, one thing I do have somewhat of an idea about is what I will be wearing…and it includes tons of SPARKLE!What I love about New Year’s Eve is the fact that it’s one of the few times you can wear as much glitter and sparkle as you want without anyone taking a second glance…it’s like I can be the bedazzled princess I dreamed of as a little girl without people staring stunned at what I am wearing…can you say dream come true? Well, any excuse to wear a dress and sparkly heels is fine by me 😉 I LOVE a sweetheart neckline (on a side not if and when I ever get married…mark my words, the dress will be a sweetheart design) and especially a fit and flare style like this glittery dress I found at Charlotte Russe! Nothing is better than glitz and glamour on a budget right?
If you are up for the splurge Saks, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales all carry this gorgeous Jill Stuart gold strapless dress (it is STUNNING) and can be ordered for express delivery with free shipping whenever you are ready! I don’t know about you but whenever I wear something without sleeves I always feel the need to pair it with a blazer. Whether it’s heading to dinner, the club or even just a house party, you never know when chilly air may strike and you don’t want to feel uncomfortable at a fun event. I think white is a great color for New Year’s so pair a white boyfriend blazer with a dress, a top and skirt or a top and pants is a great way to keep warm but also stay stylish.Now for the fun stuff…shoes and bag swag. My clutch is from Michael Kors…the hardware on the python clutch adds to the sparkle of the dress and the heels…plus the clutch comes with an attachable chain strap so you can wear the clutch as a shoulder bag to keep your hands free for drinks and h’orderves.My shoes make a statement all on their own. I got these Nine West glitter sandals two years ago and they have been my go to New Year’s Eve footwear ever since. They sparkle, shine and are actually comfortable! (they are currently for sale on my Poshmark here) I found similar options from Michael Antonio (here), Ivanka Trump (here) + Steve Madden (here) all on sale with quick shipping options just in time for NYE!You can’t truly shine on New Year’s without statement making bling like this Kendra Scott ring and this star necklace (simple yet chic).No stand out look is complete without a perfect red lip (my current favorite is this Elizabeth Arden lipstick…see more of my favorite Elizabeth Arden picks here). If you still need some more New Year’s Eve inspo don’t fret. I shared my ‘Top 10 Dressing Guide for NYE’ over the weekend here + a ‘LBD For NYE’ outfit idea here (PS You will LOVE the sparkletastic fun that hits the blog on New Year’s Eve…I shot it over the weekend and let’s just say glitter ended up EVERYWHERE…oops)| Click To Shop This NYE Look |
