And I am on the move! Today I am off to Florida and I couldn’t be more excited! A few months ago Nordstrom + Live Nation had a huge sweepstakes to promote the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (aka my favorite sale of the year) + who would have thunk it…I W O N 🙂
So what did I win you may ask? Two tickets for me and a guest to any Live Nation show in the country + a weekend getaway to see it — So, I decided why not go somewhere fun! Universal Orlando! My dad is flying and meeting me in Orlando so we can head to Universal Studios (I haven’t been since I was a child :p) + we are going to see Amy Schumer + Aziz Ansari in Tampa!
Another fun thing I wanted to share in today’s post? (Besides this casual OOTD)…Since this weekend is going to be the first time I am seeing my dad since our road trip here from NY, I wanted to finally share some of the photos from the journey!
I seriously can’t wait to see my dad! I am a total daddy’s girl and after dropping him at LAX once we arrived in LA I cried…for a while (hey maybe I am slightly overly emotional but this is my first time on my own). I am super excited about seeing him and even more excited about creating some new memories — I mean we are going to Universal and I need to see the Minions (fun fact…I am o b s e s s e d with those little guys haha!)
And I am off…to LA that is! I can’t wait to be back amongst the palm trees and in my happy place! I am staying with Kristi (a little throwback to my last year’s LA excursion) and my brother is joining me this time around to visit some of his dream schools and get the full LA experience!
When it came to packing…well there were some hiccups. First off…my luggage broke…yea I only used it for two trips and the wheel is already busted so I had to make an impromptu trip to Kohls to get a new suitcase (big enough to fit all of the neon in my closet of course hehe) Did I mention how much loveKohls yet…because I seriously do <3 They have EVERYTHING!
Anyways…after solving the luggage problem, I packed a few pairs of shorts, plenty of shoes, a few bikinis and of course sunnies!

Happy Friday Loves! Finally time for a new outfit post and in true casual Friday fashion…I’m rocking a casual beginning of fall look 🙂 I’ve had this Old Navy beige cardigan for two years now and I absolutely love it! It’s comfy, matches with everything and in a way pulls any look together. While denim shorts scream summer (what can I say I really didn’t want summer to end), pairing them with a fall cardigan can transform it into the perfect September look. My white silk cami is from Top Shop, it’s my go to for nights out or just about any occasion because it’s simple, comfortable and always makes me feel sexy! I love this shot my brother got…he’s a creative one when he wants to be 🙂 These rope wedges are from Payless and are one of the most comfortable pairs of wedges I own. Sorry but this is my favorite bag pretty much…Rebecca Minkoff Affair bag…one of my NYFW go to’s 😉
My statement necklace is from Prima Donna…let me tell you it actually weighs a ton haha but I suppose the statement it makes is worth it. It is getting cooler in NY so I suppose I have to put the denim shorts away soon…I simply hate pants (no not in that way) but in general…I’m a skirts, shorts, dresses kind of gal! Shop My Look <3
Happy Wednesday Loves! I love putting unexpected pieces together to create awesome looks…as my mom likes to say I put things together that look ‘weird’. Well while it may be weird to some, it’s fashion to me 😉 That’s what personal style is all about! I also attempted to put my hair up for a photo…I was digging it till my brother aka my photographer simply said ‘no’ while shaking his head…so the hair down it is.While I love denim shorts for a great casual look, I thought, why not dress them up with a simple white blouse and a crisp white blazer for a sophisticated look? Well here it is! To snazz up the white and denim basics, I paired my look with one of my obsessions, the Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag (I have two…both monogrammed with my initials…I may or may not have a slight designer addiction). Did you know that Louis Vuitton monograms all of their bags for free in store? Yea, I discovered this years after buying mine and they still did it for me! Now that’s customer service!My shoes were sent to me from Carolinna Espinosa. I love these sandals because of the thick block heel…we know what that means, comfortable! They are called the ‘Allentown‘ sandal and they are available now at Nordstrom.My white blazer is from my favorite line of blazers…LC By Lauren Conrad. Seriously all of her blazers fit me perfectly…I have yet to find another brand that suits me so well. The denim shorts? Abercrombie! Their shorts always fit me perfect…pretty surprising considering I’m not a 16 year old girl which is usually who wears their clothes, but hey I think Abercrombie is stepping up their game! My simple white printed blouse is from Old Navy (probably a clearance find…I never spend regular price there! I always find a coupon or a deal when it comes to Old Navy).Shop My Look <3
Weekend Time = Game Time! Happy Weekend Loves! I decided to actually take advantage of our sport court for this little look. I dug my silver Chuck Taylor’s out from the back of my closet and decided to pair them with a preppy button down from Target and some simple denim shorts for a little outdoor fun! It’s rare that I anyone in our family gets out and uses the court (busy schedules mean less tennis playing time) and when we do…or at least when I do, I’m not afraid to admit I am far from coordinated when it comes to the game of tennis 🙂 Read more
