I hope ya’ll are having a great week so far! We are in full on Holiday mode over here but that isn’t stopping me from sharing a ‘Back To School‘ inspired look as my BF likes to call it :p I am a huge fan of the varsity sweater trend so when I received this Ralph Lauren sweater in the mail from Gwynnie Bee, I knew I was going to give off all those school girl vibes!
I am LOVING this sweater for fall into winter. Not only is it super on trend right now, it is also really cozy + is great to dress up like I did here with a skater skirt + heels or you can dress it down with sneakers or boots + a great pair of jeans…styling options are endless!
I never considered myself much of a ‘prepster‘ but with this look…I just might 😉
This sweater is another reason why I love Gwynnie Bee. I never would have discovered this beauty if it weren’t for the awesome Gwynnie Bee service. Simply sign up + you can rent clothes on a monthly basis – discover new brands, trends + more for a fraction of the price!
Girly moments are my favorite moments…nothing makes me smile more than a great pair of heels (especially ones like these that are a perfect ‘Pop Of Color‘) + a chic bag.
I think every gal should invest in a few pairs of bold heels. They instantly dress up any look + are a great way to incorporate color into your wardrobe if you tend to stick to neutrals all the time.
Happy Humpday ♥ Ugh the struggle is seriously real today…after a 4 day holiday weekend the last thing I want to do is head back to the office but the show must go on, right? :p All I want to do is head back to the beach, have some BBQ + relax…but I guess this is what adulting is like haha So…I decided in order to cheer myself up I would take advantage of some of the 4th of July Sales I rounded up on the blog yesterday! What cheers ya up better than shopping, am I right? 😉
Since I am dreaming of another relaxing weekend, I am throwing it back to this floral look I wore at one of my favorite desert hot spots to relax at…the La Quinta Resort + Spa in Palm Springs! Palm Springs is one of my favorite places to go to, even in this hot summer desert heat, it is my little piece of paradise what can I say. Since it is way over 100 degrees there now, a kimono is the go to piece to wear when heading out at night after a super hot day.
I love a great floral piece…especially a kimono cardigan like this one. It is great to style with shorts, jeans, a dress or a skirt…very versatile for any occasion. I am linking to some of my favorites below.
Anytime I am in the desert I bring every pair of denim shorts I own along with chiffon lightweight camisoles that can be styled up or down depending on the occasion.
Happy Weekend Lovers! Time for another gift guide! Often times it’s hard to buy for let’s say your teenage niece, your tech savvy aunt, your straight to business mom or trendy gal pal. You don’t want to spend a fortune because hello what gal isn’t on a budget…and you don’t want to pick a cheap gift that the recepient won’t get much use out of…so what is the perfect, no brainer gift? A little ‘extra‘ as I like to call it. That means a key ring, a key pouch, phone or tablet case or even a business card holder! You can’t go wrong with any of those items because they will be useful to anyone…guaranteed 😉 (I’d say or your money back but hey I’m not the one selling them to ya…otherwise I would stand by that 110% lol!)
Happy Tuesday Lovers! As holiday prep continues one thing almost every fashionista is doing this holiday season is commuting or traveling from place to place to be with family and friends! Well, I got a jump start on what I’ll be wearing to commute around this holiday season (and it may or may not be 100% practical but hey…a girl sometimes needs her heels even when traveling if Beyonce can do it so can we!)One of the ways I commute day to day is via the LIRR (Long Island Railroad). As a Long Islander, if you want to get to Manhattan, JFK or anywhere without encountering traffic…you are usually opting for the train so that’t where today’s outfit shoot took place. My number one issue I have while traveling is outerwear. Because I may be cold waiting for a train, plane or bus…but the second I take my seat I begin to get hot and bothered (and not in a good way! haha) So I decided a lightweight canvas jacket is the way to go. I scored this one on sale at Old Navy and in my opinion this would make a great gift for a relative as well! The next piece of business to take care of…the pants. I hate wearing sweat pants and everyone wears leggings and Uggs while traveling, but hey why not snazz things up a bit with a pair of jeggings like these dark olive ones from Hue (on sale at Macy’s here). Now for the accessories…like I said this look is and isn’t practical. I believe every fashionista needs a convenient little bag that makes a statement. A bag that is great quality, moderately sized and can fit the essentials without being a huge tote that becomes home to everything including the kitchen sink…so my solution? The Ralph Lauren ‘Newbury’ mini bag available in multiple colors here.Ok, ok so maybe I wouldn’t wear these shoes while traveling but they just looked so damn cute with this outfit #SorryNotSorry! I love these camo heels and by the looks of it, the camo shoe trend is one that is taking over. I found camo heels from Carlos Santana, Sole Society and Shopbop (click to shop).A travel essential every gal should have? A great pair of sunnies! Planes, trains and automobiles all require a killer pair of sunnies that make a statement and instantly dress up a simple commuter ensemble. For this look I went with tortoise shell sunglasses like these (on sale from Target).And last but not least…a killer manicure and some sparkling bling! Red nails are always a safe bet for the holiday season and rather than wearing a million different pieces of jewelry, all it takes is one great piece like this Kendra Scott druszy ring (a popular pick for the holidays) available here.| Enter My Elizabeth Arden Giveaway HERE |
Happy Wednesday Loves! What a week…in addition to a crazy amount of press appointments I decided to venture out and take bar tending classes…you know so I can finally be the life of the party 😉 haha kidding…but really…I’m scared, nervous and also a tad bit excited! Here’s to hoping I don’t make some horribly tasting cocktails! But besides this new little venture today I want to share my favorite fall beauty and fashion trends featuring Advanced Mineral Makeup and Ralph Lauren.My friends over at Advanced Mineral Makeup sent me their amazing ‘Luxury Lip Gloss‘ that comes in multiple tints and it is music to my lips. I LOVE this lip gloss because A) It is long lasting and B) Because it feels thicker than a typical gloss but not as heavy as a lip stick…it is the perfect in between! Mascara is always a difficult find…especially one that doesn’t clump and makes your lashes look semi-fake. Well the ‘Luxury Lash Mascara‘ is everything I want and need from a mascara and more! Smudge-proof, light weight and long lasting…now that’s what I’m talking about!While I was testing out these beauty products I got a little distracted by the October issue of Vogue along with the Ralph Lauren Fall 2014 Collection insert issue. I swear everything he creates is just stunning so I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces with you!
