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.

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,

Wednesday Fiesta.

Happy Hump day!

Wednesdays mean one day closer to Friday, and even closer to the weekend. My sister and I are going to Baltimore this weekend, which will be fun to spend time with family and relax by the pool.

I love living in Manhattan but there is nothing worse than waiting for the subway at 8 am and you are already sweating. The worst part is, you haven’t even gotten to work yet and all you want to do is take another shower or jump into a pool. However, I should just be happy that I do not need to wear panty-hoes to work like my mom did when she worked in Manhattan in the 80’s. I can be grateful for that.

For today’s post I will be sharing another love of mine, which is the tassel. I love it on everything; dresses, tops, bags. It just adds a fun and festive vibe to your look and the summer just screams fun and sun.

Today’s Look

Dress – I am wearing a size small in blue. This dress is so breezy, easy to put on, and you can go to lunch with the girls or run errands. I am odd. I never like to wear workout clothes unless I am going to the gym, or lounging around at home, so this is perfect for me to throw on and walk out the door when I need to get stuff done. This dress comes in sizes S-L and in cream.

IMG_1527 fixed 2IMG_1523 fixed 2

Sandals – I am wearing a size 7 in Navy. These are the perfect sandals for the summer and they come in such a wide variety of colors that you are sure to have a match for every outfit. The best part is that you can clean them with a wipe, and they look as clean and fresh as the day you bought them. They come in sizes 5 – 10 and in half sizes. Plus, they come in 8 different colors.

White Hot.

Happy Sunday!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful week and a very restful weekend. It sure was a hot one here in Manhattan, but with the crazy rain we had on Thursday evening the humidity dropped significantly and we had a very comfortable weekend. I cannot believe that we are already nearing the middle of July, wasn’t it just Memorial Day?!?!

No matter if it is Memorial Day weekend or July 4th, we can all agree that the heat has been brutal this summer for everyone! During those brutal temperatures we want to wear minimal clothing, but still look appropriate and put together. Whether it is for work or play, a romper is a sure fire way to go. They are easy to throw on and you can wear a jacket or blazer over top for work and take it off when you are heading out to dinner with friends or family. Paired with sandals, or flats, you are ready to conquer your day all while staying cool and chic during these long summer days. 

Today’s Look

RomperI am wearing a size small in white. While my romper is from the Spring collection, this one is very similar in the way that it cinches at the waist and has the dropped bell sleeves. All for a fun, flowy, and feminine vibe. This romper comes in sizes S-L and in white and color.

IMG_1512 fixed 2IMG_1513 fixed

Block HeelI am wearing a size 7 in Light Gold. I purchased them at Marshalls but I found the exact same pair online at Macy’s, which were a little higher in price than the same pair that I found on Belk ,which I have linked. They are an incredibly comfortable shoe and they are so supportive that you won’t even realize that you are wearing them. They come in 5.5 – 8.

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! This month was bubbles.

Have a wonderful Sunday evening!

xoxoxoxoxo

Suns out buns out.

Happy Sunday! 

Sundays at the beach are always the best, even being covered in sand and sunburned I still love every second of it. Being with family brings back memories of spending hours and hours on the beach as a kid; playing in the sand, dragging my dad into the water, and eating way too many Popsicle’s and Fudgy Bars. The beach is truly a place of peace, laughs, love, and wonderful memories spent with friends and family. 

For today’s blog I will be sharing a style staple of the season – Gingham. From dresses, to tops and shorts, to handbags and shoes; gingham goes with almost anything. 

Today’s Look:

Dress – I am wearing a size 2 in red. This dress was perfect for the 4th of July holiday, however, it is perfect for any day or night of the week. You can pair this dress with either sandals or sneakers and the best part is that you can transition this dress into the fall. This dress comes in sizes 2-12 and in three different colors. summer 1

Sneakers –  I am wearing a size 7. Who doesn’t want monogrammed sneakers?!?! My mom, sister, and I have been shopping here for the past few years and we love all of their products. You can customize sneakers, sandals, flats, etc. You simply pick your shoe size, any initials you want, and your color scheme. They not only do monogrammed shoes, but tee shirts, bathing suits, sweatshirts, accessories and bags! They make for perfect gifts, such as birthdays or bridal parties. I have way too many items from here, but they are unique and fun and you are sure to always be stopped and asked where you got it. These sneakers come in sizes 6 – 11 and in white or chambray.

Monday, Funday.

Happy Monday before the 4th of July!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful long holiday weekend with their friends and family. I hope it is filled with sun, water, ice cream, hot dogs and hamburgers. I for one am excited to eat a hamburger and watch the fireworks. This is the first 4th of July in 9 years that I will not be working on the 4th. I worked all through high school and college and I am enjoying just being able to spend time with my family tomorrow.

For the blog today I will be sharing some sales that are running this week to celebrate the holiday and the best part is that everything that I am wearing in this post is all on sale! Each store is running a 4th of July sale.

Happy Monday!

Can you believe that the last week of June is here and next week is July 4th?!?! I swear the summer is just flying by! The weather was absolutely beautiful today, and while I was stuck in the office all day, I was able to go to the park for lunch. I love watching everyone go about their business in these hustling, busy, city streets.

For today’s post I will be sharing my summer staple, which is an easy summer dress that you can throw on and walk right out the door. With such high humidity in the city it is easy to just throw on a dress that is made of breathable fabric, and it moves with you so you stay cool throughout the day.

Happy First Day of Summer!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful first day of summer! I was stuck at work all day, but I did make a stop at Starbucks and I walked home from work. Thus, I was able to enjoy the BEAUTIFUL weather that Manhattan gave us today. Today, was also National Wear Lilly day so I, of course, wore my Lilly Pulitzer. The skirt was my mom’s from the 90’s so I was loving the vintage feel today!

For today’s post I will be sharing another favorite of mine for the summer, the off the shoulder top. These tops are perfect for day or night. You can dress it up, or go for a more casual look with jean shorts and sneakers. They look great on all body types and you will want to wear them again and again.

Today’s Blog Post

TopI am wearing a size small in pale pink. This top looks great with shorts, or a skirt, depending on what you are feeling that day. This top wrinkles easily so I would recommend steaming before wearing. This top comes in sizes S-L AND is only $15.90. Talk about a steal!

ShortsI am wearing a size small in these shorts. They are actually a few years old and from Zara. I was able to find them on Poshmark, so you will be able to purchase them!!! They come in sizes S-M and are only $10!

TOMS – designed with Beauty and the Beast, and each pair is created differently with your own personal stamp on them. I LOVE these shoes and I believe that this designer does an incredible job.

Friday Floral.

Fridays’ are my favorite days of the week, especially during these long summer nights.

Summer nights call for staying up late, fruity drinks, BBQ’s, and sun….in no particular order. Weekends mean pool parties, bikinis, sundresses and sandals. Can you tell I have a theme? Sun, fun, and style.

For today’s blog I will be sharing the perfect outfit for those hot summer nights – the romper. You can throw it on and pair it with a bando and sandals and you are set for the night. Although it is always a bit awkward when going to the restroom, as you are pretty much naked in the stall and convinced that others can see through the little slot in the door! Yes, ladies, let’s be honest that thought goes through ALL of our minds. No matter what we may think for that split second it does not stop us from wearing them, as they are so easy and cute to wear.

Today’s Blog Post

Romper – I am wearing a size small. This is the perfect romper for the summer, and this bright blue adds a fun sense to the evening. This romper comes in sizes XS-L.

SandalsI am wearing a size 7. My version of this sandal is from last year so I have linked a similar version. They come in sizes 4.5 – 11 and they run a bit small so purchase a size larger. They come in a wide variety of colors.

Clutch –  I am truly obsessed with this bag! You can dress it down, by pairing it with shorts, like I did.  Or, dress it up with a dress, that will look great for outdoor dinners.
