Happy Wednesday Loves…I’m writing this post while watching the Real Housewives Of NY reunion…can you say drama? Well in the spirit of making a splash, I figured I’d share one of my favorite looks…a chic LBD (little black dress, duh!).
While getting ‘gussied’ up as my mom calls it, she asked if I was heading to prom (probably because I was applying red lipstick, something totally out of my norm)…well 5 years too late mom, but any who I wanted to wear a flirty, sexy and fun little dress, I never went to my prom, so I guess this is as close as it’s going to get 😉 Black head to toe, in my opinion is one of the classiest looks any lady can rock. I love when I see quotes like ‘Pink Is The New Black’ or ‘*insert term here* is the new Black’…I believe black will always be ‘black’, classy, timeless and elegant, and that’s exactly what this look is.My black patent leather pumps as well as my dress are from Lord & Taylor (love all their amazing sales and coupons!). While my Enzo Angiolini heels and my Guess dress are no longer available, I found a great pair of patent leather peep toe pumps from Michael Kors and a fabulous black sweetheart dress from Nasty Gal!
Like I’ve shared a few times, the Rebecca Minkoff Affair Bag should be part of every stylish gals wardrobe. It can be dressed up or down, has tons of room and will never go out of style…how can quilted leather ever be ‘out’?My purple statement making jewelry is from Capwell + Co’s sample sale! Seriously obsessed, purple is my favorite color and nothing helps the classic LBD stand out like some serious sparkle!While I love dressing up, whether it’s for an event, party or ‘just because’ one of the many problems I run into is the unavoidable foot pain I get a few hours into wearing a killer pair of heels…but I found a solution! KushyFoot has a great line of roll up ballet flats that fit perfectly into your handbag, even the tiniest of going out bags and they are instant foot pain relief! The roll up flats come in a variety of colors and designs, and these Snake Print ones are a favorite of mine. They actually go with my outfit…how great is that? No worries about looking too ‘sloppy’ after taking off your heels!Now that I’m prepared for a fun night out, all I need is a place to go…isn’t that the problem we all have…all dressed up but no place to go? Sometimes you just need to sex things up a bit, no occasion required ladies 😉
Happy Monday Loves! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend of rest and relaxation like myself. I re-designed my site…what do you guys think?! I’d love to hear your feedback! So I spent a majority of my weekend on my computer by the pool attempting to teach myself coding, html and web design…it went so so haha Occasionally you have to call in the big guns, so maybe that’ll be happening soon (I love change…don’t you?) Something else I totally love is today’s outfit post. Simple, professional and totally chic…you can never go wrong with a black skirt and a fun printed top, like this leopard button down I’m wearing. I do love animal print, but in good taste…I don’t think I can handle the amount of leopard Snooki used to rock (I prefer her current style…she’s killin it, thank god Jersey Shore days are over!) I’m currently obsessed with this black scuba skirt from Target, which is on sale for $8 btw…not kidding! I also found a similar skirt minus the drop waist style available from Topshop now! My shoes are an Old Navy find…they are also my current obsession, I feel like they go with every outfit and I know I’ve been posting them a lot lately #sorrynotsorry 😉 Block sandals are a huge trend this season and I believe they will be transitioned into the fall season as well…as a matter of fact my whole look can be a fall office ensemble!My bag is from Dominie Luxury and I’ve received countless compliments on it. Just yesterday a lady at the nail salon asked me to write down the brand and style so she can purchase it…good thing I carry ‘Missy On Madison’ cards 😉 Spice up your workday wardrobe with a little leopard…I dare you 😉 Shop My Look <3
Happy Tuesday Loves! I’ve always dreamed of going to Palm Springs after seeing all of the great Coachella pics on instagram…fun outfits, floppy hats and plenty of florals is totally my scene, so I decided to bring Palm Springs to my little piece of paradise on Long Island…my backyard! My top is from Abercrombie…I’m assuming a clearance find because I don’t think I ever spent regular price there since i was in middle school…my mom always taught me bargains are the way to go 😉 (Similar top is available from Bloomingdales)My lovely little floppy hat (the only hat I actually own by the way) is from Target…last summer (Similar one from Back Country is available)My shoes and shorts are Old Navy finds of course! Like I said, I love a good bargain 😉 I loved the green color of these sandals…don’t they just scream summer?! Shop My Look Below <3
Happy Friday Loves! I am so ready for the gorgeous weekend that is upon us…and a great weekend hot spot on Long Island is…the Nautical Mile in Freeport, which is where these photos were shot 🙂 I love a great nautical look, especially in the summer, so what better place to whip out a fun striped skirt and rope inspired wedges than at the Nautical Mile! The Nautical Mile is a street right by the water with bars, restaurants and little shops…a great summer spot!My wedges were a bargain once again…from Payless! I swear, no one ever believes that a lot of my shoes are from Payless and often assume that Payless is a place you go to for cheap and uncomfortable shoes…well not me! These wedges cost me $15.99 and are SO comfortable 🙂 My skirt is from Target…a great clearance find a year or so ago…matched with a simple black cami, you can’t go wrong! I will continue to preach my love for mirrored aviators…I just feel so ‘cool’ in them. That extra pop of color is something every gal needs year round…not just in the summer! My bag was a Saks Off Fifth find…Vince Camuto of course! It’s officially my go to summer bag. Easy, has tons of room and looks great with everything! If I haven’t shared this, I have a serious love for the water…I guess it works out living on Long Island than haha! I simply feel there is no better place to sit and think than by the water…especially on a gorgeous day, this weekend should be filled with them! Have a great weekend loves…PS Nordstrom is having their huge Anniversary Sale starting tomorrow! I’ll be sharing my go to Fall Finds tomorrow 🙂 Make sure to check it out cuties!
Happy Wednesday Loves! Ok, so this is really odd for me to admit and say, but I found this outfit shoot in my photo library from 2 months ago and boy was I shocked. Yes, I LOVE the red bag in this look and of course my outfit, but it kind of hit me about how big I was getting without realizing. You know when those pounds kind of creep up on you and your not sure how they got there? Well…looking at these photos and knowing what I know now, action had to happen and so glad it has. I went on a strict paleo diet and have been hitting the gym everyday and the pounds are shedding, inches shrinking and I’m feeling better than ever…these photos were a reminder of how far I’ve somewhat already come. Now to break down my look rather than my personal journey haha! My skirt is from Kohls…LC By Lauren Conrad to be exact. My top is from Nordstrom…a clearance find of course 😉 The real show stopper…my bag. It’s from Neiman Marcus Last Call…I loved the nude one so much that I bought it in red…great for my closet not so great for my bank account haha! However I rationalize it by the fact that it’s identical to the red rockstar tote from Valentino…at a fraction of the cost!My shoes are an oldie but a goodie from Coach. They go with everything and dress up any look! You can never go wrong with black strappy sandals…right ladies?Shop My Look <3
