Spring Sneaks

Blog3 v2blog3 v3Blog3 v4Blog3 v1

Happy Saturday all! One of my favorite things to wear over the weekend is easy, slide on sneakers that are super comfy, and also super cute! Found the perfect pair, and a few others from H&M, that come in metallic gold (my favorite) and light blush!

Love pairing cute sneakers with my new, favorite distressed jeans, a t-shirt dress, or even lounging my joggers! The metallic gold adds some edgy style to your outfit!

Check out some of my other favorite, spring inspired sneaks here:

Gold Slip-on sneaks

Powder pink sneaks

Also, you’ll be seeing me wearing my favorite destroyed and frayed jeans a lot this spring, because they’re such trendy, fun addition!  Check out other favorites here:

Have a great Saturday dolls!

Happy Tuesday readers! Countdown to Friday has already begun for me.  This past weekend I was visiting my beautiful mother in Charleston, SC.  We had a blast – dinner and drinks, shopping and exploring, I love some quality time with my momma, but boy am I exhausted from such a busy weekend.

Looking forward to a weekend of relaxation.  Here’s a sneak peak into my bedroom, where I will be planning to relax on all weekend — full of vegging, eating yummy snacks and watching countless movies!  Wayne, Mr. Prince Charming, made a special guest preview and wanted to show off his outfit too!   I’m so lucky to have someone who is so photogenic! 🙂

All details from my bedroom decor and our outfits are below — enjoy!!

This fall I am SO loving this olive green color for dresses, vests, army jackets, sweaters — it’s so in!

I found this adorable BP woven shirt dress, which is a great transition piece from summer to fall, during the much anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  I’m so excited to finally make it’s long over due debut on crème! With the weather getting a little cooler this weekend, I would pair this with some tan booties and a leather jacket; perfect solution from day to night dress.

I paired this little number with Steve Madden Lace Up Nude Suede Sandals Heels, which are surprisingly very comfy and I walked all around Soho for this shoot (also shot by photographer and friend, Jason Mize).

A few weeks ago, I did a mini fashion shoot with my friend, Jason Mize, who I mentioned in my last post! This was one of my favorite looks he did and I absolutely love the shot of Wayne and I.

This dress is A-MAZ-ing and the background just makes this photo – gotta love Lower East Side, for their eclectic artwork! I can’t find it on Lulus anymore unfortunately, but it is absolutely gorgeous, with the hand detailed white flowers, mesh netting and love the sexiness of the fit.  I paired the look with my favorite rose gold Dior Reflected sunniessuede pale pink block heels and ‘Saint Germain’ lips.

Love this dress for date night or it’s perfect for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner!

I cannot believe Summer 2016 has come and gone.  Where did the time go??  Anyone who knows me, knows summer is my favorite season! It’s always sunny, everyone is happy, there’s always something fun going on outside – whether it’s happy hour, dinner on our terrace, long walks in the neighborhood or weekends at the beach!

I think we can all agree that this summers hottest looks and trends included anything white, striped, lace, pale blue and off-the-shoulder.  I think it’s safe to say, I have a thing for the off-the-shoulder look and hope to continue it throughout the fall, it’s just too cute!

Above is one of my favorite summer looks shot by photographer and friend, Jason Mize. Check out his blog here.  He specializes in Weddings, Couples and Lifestyle.  I met Jason, through my friend while he was shooting her magical wedding. He’s truly talented and does amazing work!

Love these floral pumps, they’re so beautiful and really pop when you add them with a solid colored outfit.  I love the variety of colors, which allows you to pair with so many different outfits.  These can truly dress up any look!

Hoping everyone had a wonderful, exciting summer! Looking forward to fall fashion.

Harbor Date Night

Blog 11v1Blog 11v2Blog 11v3Blog 11v4Blog 11v5Blog 11v6Blog 11v7Blog 11v8Blog 11v9

Last night, Wayne and I took a spontaneous road trip for our date night to Harbor Point, Stamford, CT.  When I say this place was magical, it was just picture perfect, so quaint and truly how you would envision Connecticut; clear blue skies, followed by a beautiful sunset, wonderful drinks and seafood, and boats galore!

I chose a long sleeved crochet dress from H&M (old, similar: 1. here 2. here 3. here 4. here) which was perfect since we sat at a waterfront table by the live band at The Crab Shell.   I paired this summery staple with my favorite Catherine Malandrino wedges, Prada sunnies and Brown leather tasseled handbag.

I would highly recommend checking this restaurant out, right on the water, live band, happy hour, delicious selection of fresh seafood and pasta dishes!  Planning to do a few more trips to this adorable town which is a short drive from Manhattan while the weather is still nice, it’s the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!

As promised, below are my top picks for the #nsale which opens to the public today!! In my opinion, it’s the best sale of the entire year!! These items are all brand new fall / winter wardrobe pieces that are on sale to up to 40%!  Once August 8th comes around, all of these items featured in the sale will go back up to original price!

As mentioned in my last post, an insider note, you should just buy whatever size available (if yours if not available) and then do an exchange once the sale ends and the inventory is restocked.  That way you ARE guaranteed to be locked into the anni sale price.  This is the perfect time to stock up on this fall’s favorite boots, dresses, sweaters, demin, outerwear, handbags, cosmetics, etc.  Below are my TOP picks for the 2016 Nordstrom Anni Sale!
