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!

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!

Stripes and Everything Nice

This off-the-shoulder dress is the perfect wardrobe piece for a summer outing and I am loving the stripes!  I wore this classic dress to a family BBQ this past weekend that we had at my aunt and uncles house.  I just love the ruffled, off-the-shoulder look, and it is everywhere this summer.  I’ve been loving H&M’s summer collection and here are some of my top picks for this off-the-shoulder look: herehere, here, here.

It’s very light weight and breezy, making it an ideal option for a hot, humid day.  The khaki green dress is also to die for.  This olive color will be a huge hit this fall, so this is next on my list for purchases!  Pair either color option with a cute pair of suede camel booties for the perfect fall outfit.  Some of my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Chestnut Suede Booties, Prairie Dust Suede Booties.

I will be posting my top picks from the #nsale on Friday morning once the sale goes live to the public.  You can shop the early access by browsing the sale then placing what you want in your Wish List.  Just as a reminder if you are not a Nordstrom Debit or Credit card holder, the sale will be available to the public starting Friday, July 22 (3:00 AM EST) – Sunday, August 8 (3:00 AM EST).  This sale includes the newest fall fashion at a discount up to 40% off.

**Just an inside tip: If they do not have your size available, order any size and you can exchange your item once the product is restocked as soon as the sale ends.  You won’t want to miss this sale, everything goes back to full price on August 8!!!! Stock up on your favorite fall booties, sweaters, leather jackets, chunky knits, designer fragrances and cosmetics, handbags, etc.

Thanks for reading!

Summer Lace

White and lace have been all the rage this summer! I found the most beautiful White Lace Dress from Madewell and it’s on sale!

I wore this little number to the Hershey Vineyard and Brewery on Friday night during a fabulous get-together for my mom before she moves to Charleston, SC.  I’ve received so many compliments on the dress and how beautiful the detail of the lace is, each time I’ve worn it.  You can’t go wrong with a classic, simple yet gorgeous dress that you can pair with any accessory; What better, than pair with my favorite summer wedges: here.

Stylish Sunday Sundress

Blog 7v1Blog 7v3Blog 7v4Blog 7v5Blog 7v6Blog 7v10My Sunday’s are usually full of relaxation and enjoying time with a close friend or loved one.  I have a section of my closet full of simple, yet beautiful dresses that help me get through my Sunday mani/pedis and make it to dinner and drinks with my man.

The best thing about dresses like these, they’re so easy to just throw on with a pair of flats or sandals, then transition into the evening with strappy heels and statement sunnies.

Almost any and everything you see this summer has the delicate embroidery on it and I just adore it. My dress I wore yesterday (similar herehere, and here) is so flowy and lax.  Some of my summer favorites with embroidery are here: Lulu’s Ivory and Blue dressLOVE LOVE LOVEOff-shoulder Midi dressRevolve Navy dressLulu’s Navy Dress.

My Accessories: Prada Sunnies, House of Harlow Wedges (similar: herehere), Lips: Clinique, Nails (Gel): OPI “Let’s Be Friends!”.

This summer I just cannot get enough of simple, chic dresses.  I’ve purchased many dresses this season that are so effortless and can be dressed down with a pair of simple sandals or up with pretty, strappy wedges.  This exact dress I cannot find anywhere online; I purchased it in New York & Company store.  Similar style here, loving the black and white!

Also loving these looks too: NY & Co. Yellow Maxi (perfect in a tropical paradise), NY & Co. Tunic (Only $15!) (teal and white are amazing), NY & Co. Off-Shoulder Maxi. All these lovely dresses are on sale at New York & Company!

My new Catherine Malandrino Espadrille Wedge Sandal, found at Nordstrom Rack could quite possibly be the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever owned! Other similar options: Catherine Malandrino Wedge Marc FisherChloé, and Stuart Weitzman.

My accessories: Dolce & Gabbana Sunnies“Love” RingDiamond PendantRose Gold Cable Bracelet and Pineapple Tumbler (perfect for summer cocktails or juices)!
