Fun in the Sun.

Happy Tuesday guys!

I hope that everyone is having a great start to the week and have recovered from St. Patrick’s Day. New York City is CRAZY on St. Patrick’s Day, although we do not dye our river green like they do in Chicago. It is so cool and I recommend going and seeing it at least once! Along with St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve certainly had some crazy weather over the past few weeks. The week before last was in the 70’s, last week we had 19 inches of snow on the ground, and it is back in the 50’s today. Needless to say, I think that we will all be happy when it’s summer.But then we will complain and say that it is too hot (we are never content with what we have). I think we should all just try and be happy with whatever mother nature has in store for us…..as long as it is not 36 inches of snow…..

For today’s post, I will be sharing one of my outfits from when I was in San Diego. San Diego is truly one of the most beautiful cities that I have been to; from the people, to the weather, I have never been in such a happy place. Although if I had sunshine 24/7 that lasted 365 days a year like they have in San Diego, then I would always be smiling as well! It was nice to relax for a few days, sit by the pool, and get a tan when it is still winter….oh how the people who live in warm climates must feel. However, I still love Rehoboth Beach, that will always be home to me, and the perfect beach that I get to call mine.

Outfit details

Chambray Dress – I am wearing a size small. I love chambray dresses, as they are perfect to slip on and head out the door in the warm summer months of June, July, and August. Since I have a larger chest I tend to stay away from ruffles, but this is very subtle and lays flat, so you do not get that extra bulky material. This dress comes in sizes S-L and also comes in a pale pink, which I think I am going to purchase as well.

* This dress is only $22.90.

Bralette – I am wearing a size large. Having a larger chest, I always believed that I could not wear a bralette. However, Victoria’s Secret carries incredibly supportive bralettes.Β  The great thing about this bra is that it is a halter, so it pulls you up and together and is incredibly supportive. I have this bra in white and ginger glaze. They come in sizes XS-XL and in 12 different colors.

* These bralettes are $20 each, or 2 for $25.

IMG_1156 fixedIMG_1151.png fixed

Sandals – I am so happy that these sandals are back in stock. I have at least 4 pairs of these shoes from last summer and they brought them back. I am wearing a size 6, as they run a bit big, so I would go down a size. They come in sizes 6-10, and in 5 different colors.

* These shoes are $19.94.

Sunglasses – I truly have about 25 pairs of sunglasses. However, I wear my Coach pair all of the time because I have my prescription in the lenses so I can see. When I saw these sunglasses, I knew that I needed to have them. So, when I have a day where I don’t feel like seeing far away, I just put these on (but I promise I only do that while walking). I always wear my prescription sunglasses when driving.Β 

* These sunglasses are $12.00.

Beating the Heat on a City Street

Happy Thursday!

Today the blog will be short as I just got back from New York City. While it was a day trip, it was fun just to spend the day with my mom and sister. While it was hot in the city I stayed cool in my easy sundress and sandals. I live in this dress – it is so incredibly comfortable, the fabric is so soft, and it is easy to wash.Lipstick and sunglasses are the same….I told you I am obsessed with these glasses.

Dress – My dress is a size small and while it is sold out, this site has an incredible amount of similar dresses. I just love how I can shop from boutiques from all over the world. I am currently obsessed with the boutiques in London, so check them out!

Sandals – These sandals run small so buy a size larger than normal. I am wearing a size 8 and they come in six different colors. I’m wearing Coral Tropics!

Bag– While my bag is no longer in stock, I found similar bags and if you join their mailing list you receive 15% off on your next purchase. Shipping and returns is also free in all 50 states!

Watch – My watch was a little pricey so I found the same watch for a lower price.

Lilly Pulitzer Case – Comes in a ton of different styles.

Have a great night!

Exercise? I thought you said extra FRIES!

Happy Hump Day everyone!

Wednesday’s always end up being one of those blah days where it isn’t Monday anymore but it is not quite Friday yet either……however, what got me through today was knowing that it was National French Fry Day. Anyone who knows me knows that I love any form of potato but especially the fry….but don’t worry I shared them with my sister.

The weather has been brutal here on the East Coast for the past week and a half and my dress I wore today was perfect to beat the heat. The great aspect of the dress is that it fits all body types, I have a rather large chest but I am petite everywhere else so it allowed me to feel covered but still show that I had a body. Along with my comfy sporty dress I paired it with my classic white Keds sneakers, I think I had every color growing up! They are a classic staple and you can wear them with literally everything. My sister bought me ones with pineapples on them for our birthday and I cannot wait to wear them. My jewelry is again from Studio S and the bangles were from Alex and Ani. I Threw my hair up into a top knot to beat the heat, a little moisturizer on my face and bright lips and sunnies to complete the look!

shoptiques – While my dress is sold out this website has an incredibly larger selection ofs. What I love about this website is that you can shop different looks from all over the world and as well as boutiques in your own backyard.

Macy’s – My Ked sneakers are on two different websites, the ones that I have linked to the Macy’s website are a little lower in price than the ones from the Keds online store but they do come in 6 different colors and they are in stock in ALL SIZES.

Keds – My sneakers are from the Keds Champion Collection so they are a little higher in price but they come in 4 different colors and ALL SIZES are in stock. I wear a size 7 in these shoes as they tend to run a little big.

Alex and Ani – I’ve always loved bangles and I love the little collection of Alex and Ani bracelets that I already have. They make for great gifts and I love how you are always able to add to your collection. Mine are all based upon what is happening in my life right now. I am moving to New York City, I studied music in college and I’m pursuing a career in Acting and Theater and I am a firm believer in God and his protection so I have my Saint Christopher Charm.

Alex and Ani – NYC

Sweet Melody

Saint Christopher

Studio S – My ring is from Studio S, I have loved working for this wonderful family for the past few years. All of the jewelry in the store is handmade and designed by the owners and one of a kind. We have three locations, two located in Rehoboth Beach and the third in Ocean City, Maryland. If you are not from around the area we have a Facebook and Instagram page as well as an Etsy site.

Michael Kors – These sunglasses were on the blog yesterday and I am obsessed with them. They come in four different shades and they are just so fun for the summer months. They make any outfit pop!

Thanks so much for reading and I hope everyone eats lots of yummy french fries!

Love,

Leather is a must this fall.

Happy Saturday loves!

Can you believe that yesterday was the first day of fall??? It sure did not feel like fall here in the city, or for most of the country. While I love an Indian Summer I am more than ready for fall…or at least temps that are in the 60’s (so I can show you guys all my cute fall outfits haha) especially with all the fabulous fall trends that we have going on currently.

Fall truly is my favorite season of the year. From the crisp autumn air, to the leaves changing, and all the cozy sweaters. I also love the holidays so the fall is the BIG lead up to Thanksgiving and Christmas. However, before all that we have Halloween and who doesn’t love Halloween?!?!? I think I eat more candy than I give out.

-For today’s blog I will be sharing a major trend for fall – leather. From leather skirts, to pants, to shoes, to handbags; leather is a must this season. I know when you say leather, people automatically assume expensive but you can purchase leather apparel and accessories for a fraction of the cost. It all depends on where you make your purchase. I love T.J. Maxx and they always have great items for a fraction of the cost. I also love shopping at South Moon Under, which is where my skirt is from.Β  While some of their items are higher in price they are always running sales and what I love about them is that they run sales on all of their merchandise.

Today’s Look:

Blouse – I am wearing a size small, in taupe. While this blouse is from last year, they have a wide variety of colors and styles both online and in the stores. This blouse goes perfectly with everything, from jeans, to skirts like the one I paired with it. This blouse comes in sizes XS-L.Β

Leather Skirt – I am wearing a size 2, and this is truly one of the most comfortable skirts that I own. Made from Vegan Leather, this skirt is perfect for the fall. Just pair it with a chunky sweater, tee, or blouse, and you are all set. This skirt is also a perfect transitioning piece and you can wear it all through the winter, with a turtleneck or high neck blouse, tights and booties and you are all set. This skirt comes in sizes 0-10.

* South Moon Under is running a 20% off sale on ALL items through tomorrow, both online and in stores.

Slip On’s – I am wearing a size 7.5. I have had so many people stop me on the street asking me where I bought these shoes and I always tell them Zulily. They have some fabulous shoes on their website and all for a great price. You can wear these shoes with anything from jeans to a dress. They come in sizes 6.5-7.5 and you better hurry as they only have a few left.

IMG_1704 fixed

Sunglasses – I am obsessed with sunglasses. I literally have 40 pairs and the worst part is I should really wear the sunglasses with my prescription in them and I never do….oops? These sunglasses are perfect for the fall and they are a steal so I would definitely grab them while you can.

Feeling of Fall.

Happy Sunday!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful and relaxing weekend. I cannot believe that we are already into the third week of September! While I will be sad for the warmer temps to diminish, I will be very excited for fall. From cozy sweaters, to the changing leaves, and that crisp feeling in the air, Fall truly is my favorite season of the year.

For today’s blog post I will be sharing one outfit that is truly perfect for fall, and you can even transition it into the winter with a few simple twists.

Today’s look:

Top – I am wearing a size small. This top is so incredibly soft and I love the flowy and cozy fabric of the top. You can easily tuck the front into a pair of denim shorts, jeans, or a skirt. EffinShop has really great products. I discovered them about a year ago and I truly love everything they sell. I know you will find something that you are sure to wear again and again. This top comes in sizes S-L and while large is the only size left, they restock all of their products.

IMG_1680 fixed

Denim shorts – I am wearing a size 25. These cutoff shorts are perfect for the fall and I love that the denim has just the right amount of distress to them. You can even wear these shorts into the winter by pairing them with a pair of tights and little booties, or heels, and you are all set to go. These shorts come in sizes 23-32.

IMG_1679 fixedIMG_1689 fixed

TOMS – I am wearing a size 7. These little gold booties are perfect for the fall and you can wear them with anything. They add just the right amount of height if you are petite like me, I can take all the lift that I can get. They come in sizes 6-10 and in half sizes.

IMG_1685 fixed

Sunglasses – I am obsessed with sunglasses. I literally have 40 pairs and the worst part is I should really wear the sunglasses with my prescription in them and I never do….oops? These sunglasses are perfect for the fall and they are a steal so I would definitely grab them while you can.

Clutch – I stumbled upon this fantastic company and I have been forever changed. Studio DIY has the most adorable accessories, party ideas, and even balloons! In order to purchase this clutch you must subscribe. Each month you will receive a new clutch for only $19.99. From tacos, to clouds, to emojis, to poptarts!

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend.

Flirting with Wednesday.

Happy Hump Day!

Wednesdays are the halfway point to the weekend, and I still cannot determine if I like Wednesdays or not. On one hand we are at the middle of the week and almost to the weekend, and on the other hand we still have two more days until Friday. So I am just going to be indifferent to Wednesdays.

For today’s blog post I will be sharing a perfect fall staple that we all need in our closet. I love flowy dresses for the fall, and they go perfectly with blanket scarves, or jean jackets and booties. The perfect fall look. The boutique that I bought the dress from is located in San Diego and I’ve posted some of their dresses and rompers on the blog before. They have great apparel and accessories and the cutest shoes! If you are in the San Diego area definitely stop in, and if not you can purchase all of their merchandise online.

Today’s Blog Post

Dress – I purchased this dress a little while back and I wore it for the first time over Memorial Day weekend. It is truly one of the comfiest dresses that I have ever worn. I feel the same way about their rompers and other dresses and I am sure their tees and sweaters are just as comfy. I will be sure to stock up on those once we really get into fall. Since my dress is from earlier in the season I was able to find a similar dress, made from the same material, on their website. I know that you girls will love it just as much as I do. This dress comes in sizes S-L.

IMG_1669 fixedIMG_1671 fixed

Sneakers – I am wearing a size 7.5 and you know that I love fun and funky sneakers so these definitely caught my eye. AND they were only $20 bucks and you know I love sales. They are incredibly comfy and you can dress them up or down, which I love. Plus, they make you smile and who doesn’t love to smile? They come in sizes 7-11 and in half sizes.

Sunglasses – I am obsessed with sunglasses. I literally have 40 pairs and the worst part is I should really wear the sunglasses with my prescription in them and I never do….oops? These sunglasses are perfect for the fall and they are a steal so I would definitely grab them while you can.

Dancing into the Weekend.

Happy Saturday!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful, and relaxing, weekend so far. The weather has been absolutely beautiful, so I have been spending as much time outside as possible while I still can before it gets to be to cold. While I know that we are having beautiful weather here in the city I know that Florida is getting ready for Hurricane Irma. I know that some of my followers are from Florida and please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, and I pray that you continue to stay safe.

For today’s post I will be sharing a fun, and flirty, dress thatΒ  is just perfect for the summer, but the best part is that you can transition the dress into the fall! I am all about transitional pieces and being able to wear them for as long as possible.

Today’s Look:

Β Dress – I am wearing a size small petite. I love that Old Navy always has longer dresses in petite sizes, that way I can be short and still be able to wear them. This dress is perfect for fall, just pair it with a jean jacket and flat sandals, or even white sneakers for a casual look. Or you can pair them with slides and a leather jacket and you are all set for a night out. This dress comes in sizes XS-L and in regular, tall, and petite. Plus, it comes in two different colors, Coral and Black.

IMG_1662 fixedIMG_1667

Slides – I am wearing a size 7 in gold. These slides are truly some of the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own. They literally go with anything and they add just the right amount of height so that you can wear them if you are short or tall. They come in sizes 5.5 – 8.5, and in four different colors.

Have a great day!

Happy almost weekend!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. My sister and I went home to Rehoboth for the holiday. While it rained, we did get to spend a few days laying out on the beach, which is always a positive in my book. Rehoboth is the perfect place to be after Labor Day, when all the tourists have gone home and we have our beautiful town all to ourselves again. While I love fall in the city nothing compares to the beauty that is the fall in Rehoboth. The ocean air feels even more crisp and refreshing during the fall. Rehoboth will always be my forever love.

I cannot believe that we are already into the first week of September! I just want summer to go on forever. However, fall is my favorite season and favorite time of the year. From the leaves changing, to the crisp cool breeze that rustles through the trees, I love everything about the fall. Plus, who doesn’t love sweater weather?!?!

For today’s blog post I will be sharingΒ  a transitional piece that is perfect for the fall.

Today’s Look:

Floral Top – I am wearing a size small in Navy/Coral. This top runs a bit big so I would buy a size smaller. I love this top because it is a perfect transitional piece from summer into fall. You can wear it with shorts, during the warmer temps, and when it gets cool you wear skinny jeans, a leather or jean jacket, and booties and you are all set. This top comes in sizes S-L.

IMG_1657 fixedIMG_1649 fixed

Shorts – I am wearing a size 2 in white. I just adore these shorts. I love that they zip up the side, as opposed to buttoning up the front, that way if you want to tuck in a tee shirt or blouse it will lay flatter. You can always transition these shorts into the fall and even into the winter. I am a firm believer that you can wear white after Labor Day. You could pair these shorts with a blouse or turtleneck or sweater and booties. You could even pair them with tights and heals and a really pretty jacket. They come in sizes 0-16 and in three different colors.

Pom, Pom Kinda Day.

Happy Hump Day everyone!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful week. It is nice to have a short work week, with the Labor Day holiday to look forward to, filled with family, fun, sun and laughter.

While I know that a lot of us will be celebrating, my thoughts and prayers are with all of the people of Texas and all that they have suffered with Hurricane Harvey. Texans are strong and their faith knows no bounds. We have seen so many incredible stories of neighbors helping neighbors and the incredible selflessness of these great people. There are so many ways to help the people of Texas through this ordeal and I have linked a couple of different charities that we can donate to. Even if it is just $5.

Today’s Look

For today’s look I wanted to share a favorite of mine, perfect for both the end of summer and as we go into the fall – the off the shoulder dress.

Dress

Dress – I am wearing a size small in Blue/White. This dress is perfect for those cooler September nights, all you need is to pair it with a shawl and you are all set for the evening. I love the pom poms that are stitched into the bodice and sleeves of the dress, they give it a fun and flirty vibe. This dress comes in sizes S-L.

Dress 2

Slides – I am wearing a size 7 in gold. My slides are from the beginning of the season and they are currently sold out, however, these slides are very similar and from the same company. They are incredibly comfortable and lightweight. They come in sizes 6 – 10, as well as half sizes.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful day!

Lace on Monday’s.

Happy Sunday!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had a beautiful weekend here in the city. The weather yesterday was breezy and in the 70’s. My sister and I went for a very long walk, which was great, but the only problem about really long walks is that you have to turn around and come back! Hahaha. Today has been equally beautiful, but a little more humid than yesterday. I will take the warm weather for as long as possible.

For today’s post I will be sharing a site called Zaful, which I had stumbled upon a few months ago when an ad came up on Facebook. After looking through the site, and reading the reviews, I decided to give them a try and I purchased a few items for the summer. One was this Navy Blue lace dress that I have actually fallen in love with. This dress is perfect for any occasion, from casual, to a party, and it looks great on all body types.Β 

Today’s Look

Dress – I am wearing a size small in Navy blue. This dress is A-lined and works perfectly on all body types. You can dress it up or down and pair it with sneakers, like I did, for this look. Or you can wear wedges, or sandals, for a more dressed up look. This dress comes in sizes S-XL and in a wide variety of colors.

IMG_1587 fixedIMG_1604 fixedIMG_1592 fixed

SneakersSadly my sneakers are from the end of last summer, as Keds was having a sale and I thought they would be perfect for this upcoming summer. I was planning on wearing them on the 4th of July but of course I forgot to pack them when I went home for the holiday. So I figured they would look perfect with this little dress for a casual and comfy look. I have linked a similar pair that Keds is currently selling online. The sneakers that I’ve linked come in sizes 5-11 and in half sizes.
