Modern Day Fairy Tale…wearing a tulle skirt like this one makes me feel like a tad of a princess…ok or more like a version of Carrie Bradshaw so it was only suiting that one of my favorite Valentine’s Day inspired looks includes the SJP staple…all that’s missing is my ‘J’adore Dior’ shirt ♥
While Carrie may have inspired my desire to rock a tulle skirt for Valentine’s Day, I paired it with a simple crop top + boyfriend blazer (had to dress it up for date night :p sorry SJP!) I was anti-tulle skirts for a while because I wasn’t sure how to style them for an everyday look…but I think I hit the nail on the head with this look! Whether you are heading to dinner or just a night out, this ultra-feminine look is perfect for any occasion!
Since the skirt makes such a statement I kept my accessories simple. I love this black Michael Kors python clutch as an easy go-to bag for a night out whether it’s a corporate party, girls night or date with your boo. It fits all of the essentials and with the look of a Stella McCartney bagwithout the price tag 😉
It wouldn’t be a ‘me‘ outfit without a Pop Of Color so since it’s a Valentine’s Day inspired look, fuchsia pumps were the picture perfect choice♥
This ‘modern day fairy tale‘ was shot at the Griffith Observatory…nothing makes me happier than exploring and shooting at new places in LA! Every time I go out to shoot I discover a new place and it feels like a mini adventure…and there is always a ‘happily ever after‘…gorgeous photos! haha ♥
What better way to prep for the weekend and this gorgeous spring weather than with a little shopping during Lord & Taylor’s ‘Friends and Family’ sale event happening now! I am an avid Lord & Taylor shopper (and by avid I mean I have one of their credit cards and pretty much shop there minimum once a month #IMayHaveAProblem) :p Anyways…anytime they have a huge sale event like this one, in my mind it is a guilt free way of getting what I want and never paying retail for it! Makes sense right? haha Above are my top 10 picks plus here are four other pieces I am lusting after that are also upwards of 25% off with code ‘FRIENDS‘ at checkout <3
I love me an LBD…and a great Giveaway! With Valentine’s Day just days away I decided to share a little ‘Date Night’ style with you all and guess what…I may actually a date for the special day (it may or may not be my adorable dog Charlie…guess you will all have to stay tuned to find out!) Anyway…in addition to sharing a fun and flirty look I am sharing a new Giveaway sponsored by Sparkle Republic Jewelry! Want to WIN a pair of statement earrings? Well continue reading to find out how you could get ‘lucky’ 😉 I am a firm believer that you could never go wrong with a chic LBD (little black dress) when it comes to a date night or any holiday. I’ve worn them for New Year’s, Christmas, parties and more. This sweetheart fit and flare dress is honestly my favorite because it fits me perfectly. To add a little extra something I opted to wear my pink shaggy coat (which is available on my Poshmark here) that keeps me super warm all night long!
Naturally in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, my shoes and bag had to be…you guessed it…pink (only suiting right)! My clutch is from GiGi NY (who would have guessed they are based right around the block from where I live!) + my shoes are Michael Kors (no longer available) I found two similar options here + here.
Want to win the earrings I am wearing? Well it’s your lucky day (or rather week) you have one week to enter to win these statement earrings from Sparkle Republic Jewelry below! Good Luck <3 PS if you missed out on my other Valentine’s Day Outfits + Gift Guides ::
They don’t call it ‘Throwback Thursday‘ for nothing…in between watching ‘Best New Restaurant’ on Bravo and getting my camera cleared out for my weekend getaway I somehow ended up going through my entire iPhoto library and came upon this little ensemble…shot back in…drum roll please…July! Yes, July…see that’s my problem ladies and gents because I shoot new looks all of the time some outfits get left in the archives waiting to be discovered and finally this is my oldest outfit sitting in my photo library and it is seeing the light of day! This outfit is so old that my little sister shot this look (she retired from doing my photos shortly after…my brother has shot my photos ever since…keeping it the family ya know 😉 )This outfit is as simple as it gets…a simple LBD paired with bright and bold accessories…what else could a girl ask for? I am pretty sure I got this dress from Old Navy (I honestly can’t even find this dress in my closet…I looked for it while writing this post and I already lost it…hopefully to be seen again once the summer comes…maybe it’s just playing hide + seek haha!). I found similar options below from American Eagle + Athleta.
The right bling can truly dress up any outfit so this look included a few key pieces of statement jewelry…similar styles shoppable below <3
And we can’t forget…the shoes + bag…these shoes were a birthday gift to myself last year because come on try and tell me these aren’t ‘Carrie Bradshaw esq‘ 😉 LOVE these beauties…similar styles below along with my Michael Kors handbag. And this year’s birthday is bound to be the best yet…stay tuned for what I have planned by adding me on SnapChat ‘MissyOnMadison‘ <3
I seriously can’t wait to be in some warmer weather to rock a look like this again #SummerHurryUp #NoMoreSnow
With my Birthday trip to Disney just 9 days away I figured I may as well start mentally preparing in my head with a little Warm Weather WishList (because in my mind spring in NYC is actually right around the corner, right?). I can’t believe how soon stores start getting in pieces for seasons to come…in August Halloween stuff is put out, in October Holiday decorations are on display and here we are in January…with spring and summer wear ready for me to snag for an impromptu trip to Florida!
I loved putting this little collage together because spring and summer wear is my forte…if I could run around in wedges, dresses and floppy hats all day I would (if only NYC allowed that!)…so while I am far from a Photoshop pro (this probably took me an hour to do) I was so excited to share some pieces I am lusting after with you all!
