L A C E me UP! One of the biggest trends of the summer and now well into fall is…all things ‘lace up‘. Lace up heels, dresses, tops + more! I think the lace up detailing adds a little sex appeal to any look (I am guessing that’s why the trend has become so popular with ‘going out‘ ensembles). Since I am always up for trying a new trend, I gave the lace up look a go with this comfortable yet stylish swing dress from Heavenly Couture (pretty much my new favorite boutique btw ♥)! The dress is here (however you may need to wait for it to get back in stock – luckily I found similar options elsewhere that I am linking to above + below)!
Happy Thursday! I am keeping this post short + sweet because I am practically falling asleep while writing this (no joke…check out my Instagram story…it was a struggle to decide to post since I’m so exhausted from work this week)! I am working on planning a bunch of events (totally fun but definitely draining haha) and figuring out a strategy for Instagram Stories which I am currently obsessed with! I was never a huge SnapChat fan and now Instagram Stories is practically the same thing except all in one place and you can get higher viewership without building up a whole new following! YASSS!
Happy Monday! Time for another hectic work week (ugh). Between moving, taking on even more responsibilities at work + trying to keep up with my blog, my head has been S P I N N I N G (if only that translated to my legs so I can physically be doing a Soul Cycle class as I am mentally haha :p). For the first time ever, I am actually having a hard time balancing personal + work life. It’s tough trying to excel at work while also kicking a*s at everything else (insert monkey covering it’s eyes emoji haha), I need a break…a getaway…something♥ Anyways, enough of me b*tching about my current work load haha…off to something a bit more enjoyable to discuss…this outfit!
My new sunnies (yes I am actually switching it up #ProudMoment) are from Nectar Sunglasses. They are cute, affordable + I never have to worry about if god forbid I loose them because at $20 I can always buy another pair if need be 😉 I am also loving this gold lariat necklace…perfect to wear to work, or with a cute date night outfit etc.
So this dress is a little risque…making it perfect for date night or girls night 😉 This white low cut dress reminds me of something J.Lo would wear to the Grammy’s (hey if Jenny from the Block would rock it, so can I, right?)! It’s from AMI Clubwear and retails for under $20…perfect for a Bachelorette party, white party or any kind of party for that matter haha!
I layered a chic moto jacket over it so the dress wasn’t ‘too revealing‘…I mean it’s still revealing but you catch my drift :p
My lace up heels are from De Blossom Collection and I LOVE them♥ They are super comfortable in addition to sexy…the ideal shoe to add some flavor to any look! (Nothing makes me happier than comfort + style being combined into one awesome pair of heels)!
Black Out…Nothing I love more than an all black chic look for fall. I have been loving the sleeveless vest trend, so when Go Jane sent me this beige one I figured I would let it take center stage paired with an all black outfit 😉 Since I always like a little color with every outfit, this colorful backdrop (which is actually the outside of a Mexican restaurant located at the bottom of the Hollywood Hills) was perfect to brighten up this dark look!This sleeveless vest is a piece I will be wearing for the rest of fall and even winter. Layer it over a blouse, sweater or even a crop top like this one and it makes an otherwise simple look, more ‘put together’.
Monday Morning Blues + Bleu Hues…I shot this look yesterday before I gave up for the day due to the windy Long Island weather we were having. Trying to carve out a day to shoot new looks is tough and it is even more difficult when the weather isn’t helping me out (gimme a break already…where is spring?!). When editing these photos I realized not only am I wearing blue, but the lighting in these photos gives off a ‘cool’ ‘blue’ hue as well…it was meant to be huh 😉 I am excited for another busy week of work, events and of course the occasional sushi date with my gal pals (anytime I have a rough day…’sushi?’ is what gets sent to my girlfriends and the response ‘kk’ haha I guess sushi is my version of a Happy Hour cocktail’).
