70 degrees in February???

Featured70 degrees in February???

Happy Hump Day! 

I feel like I should say happy first day of spring! It certainly feels like spring! We hit 70 degrees here in New York City, and you can be sure that after work I went for a long walk in the park. I enjoyed the warm air and soaked in all that vitamin C. Sadly, I do not think we are going to be getting anymore 70 degree days this week, but I can settle for 50 degree days, at least until March.

With warmer temps, and spring approaching, I thought it would be great to share the perfect dress for transitioning from winter into spring. Not only is this dress incredibly comfy, but you can wear it to work and dress it up, or dress down for a casual Saturday brunch with friends or family. I went for the more casual look on the blog today, but I will also share with you some tips for dressing it up!

Today’s Look:

Swing Dress – I am wearing a size small petite, and for this look I went for the more casual approach by pairing it with a fun scarf, clutch, and tan espadrille sneakers. I have also worn this to work, and I’ve paired it with a chunky necklace, my Kate Spade work tote, and flats. I wouldn’t recommend wearing heels as the hem is a bit short.

This dress is perfect because it fits all body types. They come in sizes XS-XXL, and in black and red floral and navy floral. 

* SALE ALERT: Only $34.97

Espadrille Sneaker – Sadly my sneakers are all out of stock! But once they are back, I will let you guys know ASAP. I linked a very similar pair, and I have read that they are incredibly comfortable, and supportive, which is always a win win. They come in sizes 6-11 and in half sizes! They are selling fast, so grab a pair before they are gone. 

Blog 3

Faux Fur Circle Scarf – I have this scarf in both beige and pink. Not only is it incredibly warm, but it goes with everything, and you can wash it! That is always a major bonus in my book, especially with all the snow and rain. This scarf comes in 5 different colors, and I am sure you will find the perfect one for you.

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!

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.  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. 

* 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.

Etsy

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,

Comfy Sweaters for Spring.

Happy weekend everyone!

Anyone else feel like it feels more like February, than the middle of April? I, for one, am sick of the cold and dreary weather. But, I do think that it will finally start to warm up and be sunny starting this week. However, I am all for it being warm until December, because this weather is for the birds. I think we are all ready to pack our winter coats and scarfs away, and swap them out for dresses, jean jackets, and sandals. They go perfectly with today’s blog post. 

For today’s look, I will be sharing a perfect outfit for spring, when the days are warm but the nights are still a bit chilly, and you do not want to wear a jacket. Light weight sweaters go perfectly with jeans, denim shorts, or even a denim skirt. Plus, they are cozy and comfy, and who doesn’t love that? 

Today’s Look:

Sweaters  – I am wearing a size small in Ivory. This light weight sweater is perfect for running around doing errands, brunch, or dinner out, when it is still a bit chilly. You can pair it with anything, and they come in such fun colors, perfect for spring and summer. They come in sizes XS-XXL.

SALE ALERT: These sweaters are currently on sale between $29.99- $34.99. So, hurry before they are all gone. 

IMG_2327 fixed

Jeans – I am wearing a size 2 petite, and these jeans are perfect for spring. I always have a hard time finding jeans in a petite size, and I always have  to either roll the cuffs, or get them hemmed. However, J.Crew and Old Navy have always had the perfect petite jeans, which is why I always shop at both. They come in sizes 0-16, and in regular, tall, and petite. 

SALE ALERT: All of their jeans are currently on sale, so I would hurry before they are all gone! Especially their colored and printed jeans!

IMG_2324 fixed

Sperry Sneakers – I am wearing a size 7 in Linen White. I have always loved Sperry’s. I remember when we had to wear them with our school uniforms, and I just always remember they were always so comfy. I wore them to Notre Dame games, in gold and green, while in college, and I must have about 10 different pairs in bright and vibrant colors. I never tried their sneakers until last year, and they are just as comfortable as the others. They go with everything, and they make every look classic and feminine. They come in sizes 5-12 and in half sizes. 

SALE ALERT: They are currently only $59.99

Rain, Rain, Go Away.

April showers bring May flowers? 

After a beautiful Friday and Saturday, here in the city, with temps in the high 70’s and the sun shining, it always stinks when its followed by rain and cooler days. But, summer will be here soon enough, than we will be complaining that it is too hot! However, I think after the winter that most of the country has had, we may not complain about the heat. 

Today’s post will be short and sweet. For today’s blog post, I am sharing the perfect tee-shirt dress for spring and summer. Perfect to just throw on with a pair of white sneakers and a jean jacket, for a casual day out, or you can dress it up with sandals and a clutch. 

Today’s Look:

Dress – I am wearing a size small petite in charcoal. Not only is this dress incredibly comfy, but it is perfect if you are petite and looking for a great everyday dress. When you are short, it is always so difficult to find dresses that don’t need to be altered, and that is why I always love buying dresses from the Gap, because they always carry petite sizes. This dress comes in sizes XS-L, and in petite, tall, and regular. 

IMG_2316 fixed

Sneakers – I am wearing a size 7.5 and they truly have to be the cutest pair of sneakers that I own. Embellished shoes are all the style right now, and what better way to accessorize this tee shirt dress than with a fun pair of sneakers! They come in sizes 5-10, and in half sizes as well. Hurry as they only have a few left.

Modern Day Belle.

Happy weekend loves!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful week. I know a lot of people were on Spring Break with their families, hopefully you were in much warmer climates than what we are currently experiencing on the East Coast. However, I did see that we are supposed to have days in the 60’s and sunny this coming week. So, fingers crossed that this means spring will now be here to stay. 

Speaking of sunshine and warm weather, my look of the day is geared towards those warm sunny days that are hopefully right around the corner. My dress is from the Spring of 2017, however, I was able to link three other dresses that are very similar. This dress is perfect for family celebrations, garden parties, date night, to showers. I also linked the two different pairs of sandals that I have worn with this dress. Needless to say, if Belle was alive in modern day, she’d approve. 

Today’s Look:

Dress 1 – I am wearing a size small. Sadly while it is no longer in stock in stores, individuals are selling them on Poshmark and they look to be in very good condition. 

IMG_2312 fixed

Dress 2 – This version of the dress is a little more casual, and is perfect for those warm summer nights with the one shoulder ruffle and the hem a bit shorter. Pair the dress with sandals, or even white sneakers, for a more laid back look and you are set to go. This dress comes in sizes 2-12. 

IMG_2306 fixed

Dress 3 – This fun and flirty ruffle dress is perfect for any occasion, with it’s bell sleeves and flirty skirt, you are sure to dance any summer night away. This dress comes in sizes XS-L. 

IMG_2311 fixed

Yellow Slides – I am wearing a size 7 in Yellow. These slides are so comfy! You can literally wear them all day and night, and your feet won’t complain once. They are perfect for work and play. They are the perfect height, whether you are tall or petite, they are  the perfect shoe for the summer. 

IMG_2306 fixed

Yellow Slides 2 – I have these in a size 7 in Mango. These slides are perfect for any occasion and they are also incredibly comfortable. They come in multiple pastel colors, and in black, so you can even wear them to the office during those warm summer commutes. They add the perfect height. Whether you are tall or petite, they are the perfect sandal for you. They come in sizes 6-10 and in 4 different shades.

Ruffles Anyone?

Ruffles Anyone?

Happy Hump Day!

I hope that everyone is getting through the work week on a positive note! I know a lot of people are going on spring break, given that Easter is on Sunday. I always loved going on spring break when I was in school; it always seemed to symbolize that school was almost over and summer was about to begin. I think we can all agree that summer is everyone’s favorite season! There is just something about the spring, and summer, that puts a smile on everyone’s face. I think it is because it symbolizes rebirth and growth, as well as moving towards an incredible new start that we get every spring. Plus, we can ditch those winter coats, which ALWAYS puts a smile on my face. 

Speaking of spring break, warm destinations, and summer, for today’s post I will be sharing a must for summer! Ruffles! Yes, ruffles, which are very on trend, as we head into April and May; but off the shoulder dresses are perfect for those warm summer days and nights when you want to have as little layers on as possible. Plus, they are flirty and fun, which is what summer is all about. This dress is also perfect if you still need some last minute outfits to bring away with you on the spring break getaway. 

Today’s Look:

Ruffle Off-the-Shoulder Dress – I am wearing a size small. The dress runs big, so I would size down. This dress is perfect for a dinner party, date night, or a family celebration. Perfect for having fun and dancing the night away. This dress comes in sizes S-XL.

Sandals – I am wearing a size 7.5 and these are the perfect shoes for spring and summer. Not only do they go with everything, but they are also incredibly comfortable, which is sometimes hard to find with sandals. But these are perfect, and they have the perfect heel, so you can wear them if you are short or tall! They come in various colors, and in sizes 7-9 and in half sizes. 

*SALE ALERT – They were originally $118.00 but now they are 40% off and are currently $70.80. So, grab them while you still can.

Did Someone Say Pineapple?

Happy weekend everyone!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful week, and is now enjoying the warm sunny weather after that awful snowstorm we had Wednesday. You wouldn’t even know that it snowed here, all the snow has melted! Maybe now, it can FINALLY start to feel like spring, fingers crossed. 

As we approach spring and summer, it is now time to start shopping for those warmer dresses that will be easy to throw on once those temps reach the 70’s and 80’s. Yes, it may only be March, but it is easier to shop for that stuff now, as opposed to waiting until the end of Spring when the prices jump and they are running out of items in the stores or online. The dress that I have linked today, is perfect for all occasions, from beach parties to backyard BBQ’s. 

Today’s Look:

Dress – I am wearing a size small, and this is the perfect dress to wear to brunch with the girls, an outdoor birthday party or BBQ, or even date night. Plus who doesn’t love pineapples?? This dress comes in sizes S-L. 

* SALE ALERT – This dress is only $19.99

Sandals – I am wearing a size 7.5 and these are the perfect shoes for spring and summer.

Pastels for Spring.

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend and a great start to a new week! Sorry I was MIA all last week, I was in San Diego for a much needed vacation. My sister and I flew out last Friday and we met our mom and stepdad and we have a wonderful week in sunny California. While it was a bit cold and rainy we still had a wonderful time as a family. Now it is time to kick off the new week with a fresh mind and positive attitude. With tomorrow being the first day of spring, brings a whole chance of new beginnings. 

For today’s post, I will be sharing with you a must for spring which is pastels and I found the coziest sweatshirt for spring as we start to put away a winter coats (finally) and swap it for something a little more lightweight and this cozy sweatshirt is the best solution. 

Today’s Look:

Sweatshirt – I am wearing a size small in blush. This sweatshirt is so cozy and is literally perfect for spring. This comes in array of colors and you can pair them with jeans, shorts or even jean skirt. You can even go for a more casual look and wear them with leggings and sneakers. This comes in sizes XXS-XL. 

IMG_2227 fixed

Jeans – I am wearing a size 2 petite in Campeche. These jeans have to be the comfiest pair of jeans that I own, and I have A LOT hahaha. The best part about jeans from Old Navy is not only the price, but they come in regular, tall and petite which is sometime’s hard to find. They come in sizes 0-20 and in three different shades of denim. 

IMG_2238fixed

Tan Slip On Sneakers – I am wearing a size 7 in tan and these sneakers are perfect for spring and summer. Not only are the super comfy but they are also incredibly supportive and they look great with everything from jeans to a tee shirt dress.

White Hot.

Happy Hump Day!

So sorry for the delay in posts, this past week has been crazy! Speaking of crazy, can we talk about this wild weather we’ve been having? Friday we had a Nor’easter, with tons of freezing rain and wind, and now we have a second one today with LOTS of snow…….isn’t it supposed to be spring???? Vacation cannot come soon enough!

For today’s post I will be sharing the perfect dress for spring and summer. I have never been one to follow the traditional “rules” of only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day. White is a perfect neutral color to wear throughout the year. It just depends on how you wear it. 

Today’s Look:

Dress – Sadly, my dress is from Zara’s spring collection from last year. But I was able to find a similar one  that is just as dressy. You will be able to wear this dress to graduation parties, weddings, and birthday celebrations. This dress comes in sizes XS-XL. 

IMG_2186 fixed

Pearl Slides – I am wearing a size 7. They are so incredibly comfy, not to mention incredibly cute. They come in sizes 5-9, and in half sizes. 

IMG_2184 fixed

Sunglasses – I must have 30 pairs of sunglasses, but these have to be my favorite pair. They go with everything, and I love the oval shape of the frames. 

IMG_2187 fixed

 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!
