I am a simple girl…when it comes to make up it’s the easier the better. I never have time in the morning to play around with a million different products to achieve a killer ‘cat eye’ or a nice smokey look…I prefer sticking to the basics…clean, bright and some long, full lashes.
I’ve been on the hunt to achieve the great ‘fake‘ lash look for a while now and I even attempted the whole individual fake lashes deal but it just wasn’t for me. After all of the freakouts i had in my head over loosing my real lashes and after attempting it once just for all of the fake lashes to fall off within 48 hours, I determined that finding the right eye makeup products was my best bet and I think I found them!
Feels like spring spirit! I was beyond thrilled at how warm NYC was yesterday…I actually got to show some leg (an appropriate amount of course…) and not have to bundle up in layers…Spring has Sprung! This look is the epitome of spring…white skinny jeans, bright colors, white pumps and a signature pair of sunnies…out with the dark hues and in with shades of light! This ensemble was shot back when I was in Florida for my Birthday a few weeks ago and I am already itching for another trip (seriously is it May yet…LA here I come)! Yesterday was a busy work day…I brought four of my blogger gal pals to Kleinfeld to have their very own Cinderella moment in honor of the movie coming to theaters Friday and let’s just say it was a magical afternoon 😉 Follow @KleinfeldBridal to find out more…but as for my outfit…well you have to read on to get your own ‘happily ever after‘ :pSpeak of color, I had to wear this blue face Michael Kors watch again for this post (yes I know I just wore it Monday#SorryNotSorry :p) When an outfit has so many different colors sometimes to pull the look together, a chic classic bag is necessary like the black quilted ‘Affair’ bag from Rebecca Minkoff here. And naturally a killer pair of sunnies (especially bright ones like these) are needed to really embrace the warmer weather and to make a statement.
I must admit I have a slightobsession with white…white jeans…white pumps#AllWhiteEverything…with a ‘Pop Of Color‘ of course 😉 Although white is a challenge to keep clean, when worn properly it is so classy, chic, fresh and clean…and it can match with so many different options and in the spring I am always wanting to mix and match!
If only NYC warranted this kind of ensemble today. This is a little bit of a flashback and was shot when I was in Florida, but I am already planning my next visit…maybe this time Miami? Well guess what? Maybe you could join me…Ok not literally join me on my trip but you can be off to Miami for spring break with the help of ZipCar! ZipCar wants you to #ZipIntoSpring by entering their ‘Spring Break Giveaway‘ for a trip for two to Miami for 4 days / 3 nights including airfare + $100 a day spending money…umm sounds like a sweet deal to me!

When it comes to travel style the key is to bring accessories that can be transitioned into a bunch of looks…a signature pair of sunnies, a chic watch (like this Michael Kors one) and simple clothing…like this black skater skirt that can be worn at the pool, to dinner, to brunch or the beach (did I mention how much I LOVE skater skirts? Because I am pretty much obsessed). And I love to wear wedges…especially nude ones that can match with absolutely everything (these will definitely be in my suitcase for spring break)!
So back to this exciting trip to Miami for spring break…Do you want to go? Well here is your chance (Giveaway ends TOMORROW), head over to the ZipCar landing page here + Follow the instructions on the page…how simple is that?! Maybe if you are the lucky winner, we will bump into each other during spring break 😉 How awesome would that be?!| Click To Shop + Share My Look |
This is what I am wearing to the office today…NOT! Trust me I am counting down the seconds till I could slip on some shorts and sandals once again, but for now I will have to relive some sunny moments with these photos from one of my outfit shoots in Florida (if you missed my previous Florida posts check them out here + here). The weather was perfect, not too hot…not too cold, just right…The perfect weather to mix a cropped sweater, shorts + of course sandals (how great are these white ankle strap sandals…I can’t wait to wear them all spring/summer long, PS you can get them for under $50 below)!
This white sweater was a staple of mine in Florida because it would be brisk in the morning, warm in the afternoon and then slightly cooler in the evening so this sweater came with me everywhere (a gal has to be prepared at all times :p).My accessories were staples for my trip as well. Simple white sandals can be worn with jeans, shorts, skirts or dresses, so they are a great option to bring when traveling to a warmer climate (which is pretty much anywhere other than New York #GetMeOutOfHere). My bag is from Coach a few years back but I found two similar cross body options here + here. And of course some bling is always in order…I layer this skull necklace over everything + yes, I am totally obsessed with these blue Ray Bans which were a Birthday gift from my parents right before I left for my trip.
So in actuality I am bundled up in layers…warm pants, sweaters, vests and more…pretty much yesterday’s outfit post but hey it’s fun to have a little ‘throwback‘ moment every now and then right? :p| Click To Shop + Share My Look |
With NYFW quickly approaching I teamed up with smartwater to share my NYFW prep guide / a little outfit inspiration for the big week in NYC! Fashion Week is a stressful yet exciting time for every blogger…shows to see, parties to attend and outfits to shoot…so I tend to A) Keep my looks simple enough to transition from day to night + B) Stay hydrated and ready to go with smartwater, the official hydrator of NYFW (no matter where I go I always have my bottle handy).
*This story is brought to you by vapor-distilled smartwater, who found unique inspiration for their water by looking up to the sky. We hope the new perspective this piece offers will help inspire you.
My NYFW style always incorporates a killer pair of heels, an easy go to bag and a crisp blazer that pulls the look together. What inspires my look? Easy, simple, chic, classic pieces. Pieces that can be worn season to season, can transition well for any occasion and are pieces that are flattering on every figure. While I am never one to shy away from color during February NYFW I tend to keep my winter neutrals paired with a little pop (my pop being white). Since NYFW is such a hectic time I prep the best way I know how…with a little rest, relaxation and of course a vacation! Last week I headed on a pre-fashion week trip to Orlando Florida (where I shot these photos…hence the lack of snow covering the ground and the ability to wear white pumps). I spent the weekend at Disney World and every hour on the hour I was guzzling another bottle of smartwater to stay hydrated as I was running around…which in a way reminded me of running from show to show, party to event all week long during fashion week. My takeaway? Stay HYDRATED (trust me it’s much needed).Although I am always carrying a ton while attending the shows, my Rebecca Minkoff Affair Bag has been my go to for the past few seasons. It fits all my essentials: camera, iPhone charger, sunglasses, water bottle, makeup and more. Not too big, not too small…just right 😉 I wish fashion week was in a warmer climate this season but what can you do…it gives me an excuse to wear vegan leather leggings like these ones from Lysse that not only keep me warm, but they are as stylish and as chic as could be.
