Malibu Magic!

blog14v2blog14-v6blog14-v5blog14-v4blog14-v3blog14-v1

So, many of you have asked where you can get this L’atiste Odyssey floral maxi, that I wore to Nobu Malibu, which I am head over heels about both! Everything at Nobu exceeded all expectations I had for this establishment: the food was amazing, the service was great and you truly cannot beat the view!

This dress I am wearing a small, it’s true to size (it would look a little better if my tata’s were a little larger, but hey, what can ya do?!)   It was a little long on me, but with my favorite Steve Madden Melina heeled booties, it just grazes the floor.  This dress is so perfect for fall and spring.  It wraps and leaves little to the imagination with the low plunge neckline and open slit in the front.  When I saw this at the most adorable boutique in Charleston, SC, I knew I had to have it.

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.

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!

Pretty in Palms

Blog 5v2Blog 5v3Blog 5v4Blog 5v5Blog 5v6Blog 5v7Blog 5v1When I think of the perfect print for summer, I envision tropical and colorful styles that are perfect for paradise! Palms have been so big this year and I just LOVE them!

I am so in love with this jumpsuit !!  I purchased about two weekends ago from Old Navy and unfortunately, it’s already sold out in regular, tall and petite but still available in plus sizes.  This jumper is so comfy, fits beautifully and I received so many compliments on the print!

Good news is, if you love this print, it is available in a flowy, cami dress that’s perfect for a summer BBQ or brunch with the girls.

Sunnies: Dior Reflected – Pink / White.  In department stores, these sunnies are $450 +tax. I found a site called Otticanet with authentic, tax free sunglasses for a fraction of the cost. The glasses ship for free directly from Italy.  Highly recommend this site if you’re looking for authentic designer sunglasses for cheaper than the department store!
