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.

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,

Oversized Sweaters.

Happy Tuesday before Thanksgiving!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful start to the holiday week and that everyone has a safe trip home. The weather is supposed to be beautiful on Thanksgiving here in Rehoboth. Today it is in the 60’s, so I’ll be sure to spend as much time outside as possible.

For today’s post I will be sharing another favorite of mine for the fall and winter – oversized sweaters. They go perfectly with everything, from jeans to dresses, and they are perfect for layering, and staying chic, and in-style throughout those cold winter days that are heading our way.

Today’s Look:

Oversized Sweater – I am wearing a size medium in oatmeal. I love wearing bigger sweaters in the fall, and winter, because you can layer underneath without the clothing feeling bulky, so go a size up. This sweater is so cozy and you can pair it with anything from jeans, to a skirt, or layer it over a dress, like I did here. This sweater comes in sizes S-L and in three different colors.

Dress – I am wearing a size small, petite, in charcoal heather. This dress is so incredibly soft and comfy. You can dress it up or down, by pairing it with booties for a night out or with sneakers for running errands. You can also transition this dress into the winter months by pairing it with tights and booties. This dress comes in sizes XS-L in petite, XS-XL in tall, and XS-XXL in regular.

Booties – I am wearing a size 7, and these booties have become my favorite purchase of the fall. They have the perfect little heal that adds the perfect lift paired with any pant, dress, or skirt. These booties are also incredibly festive and fun and I get a million complements on them. They are just what you need this holiday season. They come in sizes 6-10, and in gold and now a glittery silver.Β

Blanket Scarf – While mine is from last year, I was able to find a similar one, but in different colors.

Feels like Fall.

Well it is certainly starting to feel like fall!

This week has definitely been the coldest week that we’ve had so far, and tomorrow the high is ONLY going to be 38 degrees! Wasn’t it just 75 last week? This weather is just crazy….but I certainly do not look forward to pulling out my winter coat…although, it is going back to the 50’s after tomorrow so maybe I shouldn’t get it out. On cold days like that all I want to do is snuggle on my couch in my BIG Notre Dame blanket haha but there will be plenty of weekends for that come winter.Β 

For today’s post I will be sharing some of my finds that I scooped up for a great price over the past few weeks. I cannot wait for you guys to see the booties that I am featuring! They are so cute and comfy, and they go with everything.

Cooler temps call for cozy layers.

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. The weather was absolutely beautiful at home, nothing beats the beach in the fall. The way the water hits the sandy shore,Β  you hear the seagulls and the sand in between your toes, it truly is magical. Rehoboth is so peaceful this time of year, it makes you want to bottle it up and never let it go.Β 

Due to the warmer temps they started putting up all the decorations around town, and while I love Christmas, I always feel that Thanksgiving gets pushed to the way side in the stores. We were at the store and they already had the Holiday Oreo’s and all the Christmas decorations out. While Christmas is my favorite Holiday I do love Thanksgiving as well, so I am all about them inventing Thanksgiving Oreo’s with turkeys on them.

For today’s post I will be sharing another favorite look of mine, which is cozy leggings, sweatshirts, and blanket scarves. This outfit is perfect for those chilly fall and winter weekends spent taking brisk walks or cozying up on the couch.

Today’s Look:

Fleece – I am wearing a size large, in men’s, in white. This fleece was actually my dad’s fleece and after he passed away I kept it. He actually had it in 3 different colors so needless to say he thought they were comfy as well haha. Although he has been gone for 6 years they still carry the fleece and I may have to go purchase another one. They go perfectly with leggings, they are so warm and they wash great! They come in sizes XS-3XL and in several different colors.

IMG_1847 fixedIMG_1843 fixed

Leggings – I am wearing a size small. The best part about these leggings is that they are part of the ColdGear Collection so they keep you warm and dry in the snow and rain. They also help to maintain body heat so you are never cold. These are a life saver in the winter when it is so windy outside. They come in sizes XS-XL and in black and tan.

IMG_1849 ixedIMG_1845 fixed

Sneakers – I am wearing a size 7 and I know that I have posted these many times on the blog before but they are just so comfy and they go great with everything. I have been wearing Keds since I was a little girl and they are still my favorite sneaker. They come in sizes 4-13 as well as half sizes and several different colors.

IMG_1854 fixedIMG_1850 fixed

Blanket Scarf – I love blanket scarves and I have a wide variety of them but I have to say that the scarfs that Modcloth sell are my favorite. They come in a wide variety of colors and you can wear them as a shawl or as a scarf.

Fall is in the Air.

Happy Hump Day everyone!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful week and that everyone had a wonderful Halloween filled with crazy costumes, parties and candy coma’s. I for one, ate way too many Kit Kats and the French Fry costume was a success, not going to lie I will probably wear the same costume next year it was so fun.

Now that is it finally starting to feel like fall, today’s post will be geared around another favorite fall staple of mine which is boyfriend jeans, booties, and a blouse. This is the perfect look to go from casual to a night out, all by mixing different pieces together.

Today’s Look:

CoatI am wearing a size medium and this is truly one of the best coats for fall. It is big enough where you can layer a sweater underneath for when we get closer to winter, but for now you can pair it with a blouse or over a dress and you will be warm and cozy enough. Checkered coats are also very in right now in all styles of colors and you will be sure to make a statement in this coat all fall and winter long. This coat comes in sizes small and medium.

img_1036-2

Blouse – I am wearing a size 4 in black/white striped. This blouse goes perfectly paired with jeans like I have them styled here, or underneath a jumper or paired with a leather skirt. This blouse comes in sizes 2-16 and in several different colors and styles.

img_1026-2

Boyfriend Jeans – I am wearing a size 2 short, and I am not going to lie I wear these jeans a little too much but I do not care they are comfy and they go with anything. They have the perfect structure between the boyfriend jeans and the blouse tucked into the waist of the pants. These jeans come in sizes 0-20 and in regular, tall and short.

img_1034-2

CrossbodyΒ  – I love fun accessories and I love nothing more than a statement handbag and nothing makes more of a statement than a cat crossbody bag.

img_1023-2

Β Booties –Β  I am wearing a size 7. While my booties are from last season at Marshall’s, I was able to find almost the exact same pair that I’ve linked here. They come in sizes 6 – 10, as well as half sizes.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Monday Funday.

Happy Monday loves!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! The weather was absolutely spectacular here in the city. Due to the warm weather, the leaves haven’t really begun to change on the trees throughout the city. This is my favorite time of year, when you can walk around Central Park, or Riverside, and see all the leaves change and feel the crisp autumn air.Β 

While the weather may have been beautiful outside, my poor sister did not get to enjoy a lot of it as she has been studying for midterms all weekend! I cannot believe that she is coming up on year two of her masters program, and is now applying for her PhD!!! I could never do it but that’s what makes me so proud of her and I know that she is going to do incredible things. While she did have to spend most of her weekend inside, I did get her out of the apartment yesterday. We went out to lunch and for a walk. Sometimes it is nice to just let your mind take a breather and what cures that better than burgers and fries of course! We’d never been to Bare Burger and it was so cute inside and the food was great so we will definitely be going back.

For today’s blog post I will be sharing another fall staple of mine which are swing dresses. They are so easy to wear. You can walk right out the door and you look polished and put together.

Today’s Look:

Swing Dress – I am wearing a size small petite. Does anyone else have that problem where they purchase petite clothing but the dress or pants are still too long? That literally happens to me all the time! So I just tied up the one side of the dress to give my legs a bit more of a dimension. This dress is perfect for those in-between days when it isn’t hot but still isn’t cool. This dress comes in sizes XS-L, regular, tall, and petite, and two different colors. My print is no longer in stock.

TOMS – I am wearing a size 7 in Rose Gold. These are the perfect shoe for fall, and they go with everything, from jeans and a tee, to a dress. They come in sizes 5-12, as well as half sizes, and in 2 different color.

Sunglasses – Β  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.
