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,

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Hump Day loves!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday, and Valentine’s / Galentine’s Day! I swear I think this is the one day, of the year, where you are allowed to eat too much candy and doughnuts, wear too much pink, and not have to feel bad about it! Also, it was 50 degrees today. I’ve never had a Valentine’s Day where it has even been that warm, but I will gladly take it. 

For today’s post, I will be sharing a favorite of mine for the end of winter, and beginning of spring. You guessed it, overalls! I LOVED them as a little girl, even though they took forever to get on and off. I was so petite that they always slipped off my shoulders, and were always too big around my waist. Fast forward 20 years and……. I STILL have that same problem hahaha. I have a large chest, but I am petite everywhere else, so I always have to go a size up. But than they are so big everywhere else. I don’t care because they are still fun, and remind me of being a child. Except now, instead of just pairing them with a tee and white ked sneakers, as an adult you can wear them with blouses, sweaters, and even a bodysuit underneath. Don’t want to wear sneakers? No problem! Pair them with booties, or a fun block heel, and you are all ready to go!

Today’s Look:

Overalls  – I am wearing a size 27. I went up a size, because of my chest, and they are big around the waist and legs, but I am getting them taken in. Stay true to your size when it comes to overalls, so you don’t have to do what I did. But, they are incredibly comfortable, and they look great with a variety of different tops and shoes!

IMG_2133 fixed

Blouse  – I am wearing a size medium, and I not only love the fit, and feel, of this blouse, but I love the coloring as well. You can wear this blouse with anything, from jeans to a leather skirt. Perfect for work and play. 

IMG_2137 fixed

Sneakers  – I am wearing a size 7 and I kid you not they REALLY work! I have worn them three times now, and the water repels off of the shoe. Plus, they don’t even get dirty. 

IMG_2138 fixed

Scarf  – My faux fur scarf is perfect for mixing it up, when you don’t want to use a blanket scarf, and you want more of an edgy vibe. Loft has always had great accessories, and this is certainly one of my favorites.

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!

70’s Vibe for Valentine’s Day.

Happy Monday loves! 

I hope that everyone had a wonderful, and relaxing, weekend! My sister and I spent it with friends and went and saw the new Fifty Shades movie on Saturday (am I the only one who laughs at the steamy parts?) Come on, it is awkward to watch that on the big screen. But overall I enjoyed it, like I did the last two, even if they did not stay true to the book. We tried a fun new restaurant on the Upper West Side, and spent ALL DAY yesterday inside since it was raining cats and dogs outside. How awesome would it be though if it rained puppies?????

I know that Valentine’s Day is literally right around the corner but I wanted to share a fun dress that you can wear all through the spring, and even into the summer. You could even transition it into the fall, and who doesn’t love a versatile piece like that? The dress also has a fun 70’s retro vibe, which is currently all the rage.  So you have two great reasons to get this dress 1. Can wear all year and 2. 70’s vibes for days!

Today’s Look:

Bell Sleeve Swing Dress – I am wearing a size small petite. This dress is  flirty and fun. Being petite this dress works perfectly with booties, or block heel sandals, or even flats. 

IMG_2115 fixed

 

Block Heel Mule – I am wearing a size 7 in beige. These mule’s are some of the comfiest shoes that I currently own. You can wear them with anything. From dresses, to jeans, even overalls and shorts, as we transition into the spring. They add the perfect amount of height, and if you are short they add the perfect lift. 

IMG_2109 fixed

 

Clutch – This clutch adds the perfect romantic touch to any look. You can wear it to any event: from weddings, to graduation parties, to date night.

Freezing Temps Equals Winter Fix.

Cheers to the weekend loves!

I feel like we all breathe a sigh of relief when the clock strikes 5 on Friday night, and we get to go home and spend two glorious days relaxing, running errands, and spending time with friends or family. This weekend I am spending it with my sister and some friends. While it may be raining it is STILL in the 50’s, meaning we will be enjoying every second of this “warmer” weather.

With winter comes all those layers and sweaters. Sometimes sweaters can by itchy and uncomfortable, meaning wool. I always have to wear a tee under mine so I am comfy. However, I try to find sweaters that are soft, and cozy, in material so I can stay warm, but not feel like I am going to scratch myself to death because the sweater is so itchy (sorry for the dramatics…) BUT it is true and we can all agree upon that.

For today’s post I will be sharing one of my favorite cozy sweaters, which goes with everything. It will leave you feeling warm, cozy, and itch free, which is ALWAYS an added bonus 🙂

Today’s Look:

Sweater – I am wearing a size medium. I always love my sweaters to be a bit big, and loose fitting, so that I can tuck them into the front of my jeans or skirt. Plus, if it is really cold outside you can layer a tee underneath without it feeling bulky or clunky. This sweater comes in sizes 0-14.

Winter 2

JeansI am wearing a size 25 in black. These jeans are so comfy and not hard to put on (like we know must skinny jeans can be). They look great with sweaters, tee’s, or blouses, and you can transition them into the spring and fall. They come in sizes 23-32 and in regular and tall.

Winter

BootiesI am wearing a size 7. These boots are perfect for all weather conditions, from rain to snow, and they look so cute with everything. They are insulated so they keep your feet warm and dry, so I would definitely snag a pair before they are gone! They come in sizes 4-12 and in half sizes.

Winter 3

Down jacket – Sadly, my winter coat is from last year. But, I have linked a very similar coat which is currently on sale for a great price. It is always so hard to find a winter jacket that provides warmth, and protection, and all for a fair price. My jacket was $200, but this one is below $165 which is great for a winter coat. It is a really nice jacket that is durable, so you will have it for years to come. It comes in sizes XXS-L and in black and navy blue.

Winter 4

Have a wonderful Saturday.

Pineapple kinda Day.

Happy TGIT everyone!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful week, and is staying warm in this crazy weather that we are experiencing through most of the country. I had so many layers on yesterday that I felt like the State Puff Marshmallow Man from GhostBusters hahaha. However, I did hear that the east coast is supposed to warm up, so fingers crossed we have a warm weekend! Sad when we think the 40’s and 50’s is a heatwave. 

For today’s blog post I will be sharing a must for those chilly winter days. Layering is always a tricky thing to style. You want to look cute, and in style, without having your clothes feel bulky. I have the perfect remedy for that with the look that I am featuring today. You will feel cute, cozy, and ready for the day!

Today’s Look:

Pullover  – I am wearing a size medium. Sadly, mine is from last year’s Free People Collection. But, I was able to link this year’s pullover, and this looks JUST as warm and cozy. I love getting a bigger size so you can tuck it into the front of jeans, leggings, leather pants, or a skirt. Since pullover’s are a bit big you want to add shape to it, hence, tucking the front in. This sweater comes in eight different colors, and in sizes XS-L.

blog 2

Long Sleeve Tee – I am wearing a size small, petite, in black, and this tee has to be one of the softest tees that I own. It is light in weight, but still keeps you warm, and is perfect for layering under sweaters, vests, and hoodies. This tee comes in several different colors and in regular, tall, and petite, and in sizes XS-XXL.

med_res

High Rise Skinny Jeans – I am wearing a size 26 petite (and I am still too short so I have to roll them hahaha). One day I will find jeans that fit perfectly! They are a fantastic pair of jeans, plus they stretch and go with everything. I love Banana Republic jeans because they fit and wash great! They come in regular and petite and in sizes 24-32.

Pineapple Slip On’sI am wearing a size 7, and I am obsessed! Who doesn’t want pineapple shoes???? They are so comfy, and they go with literally everything, from jeans to workout gear.

On Wednesday’s we Wear Red.

Happy Hump Day!

I cannot believe that 1. It is almost the end of January and 2. that it is January and it feels like spring! However, this weather can stay until spring and we can head straight into summer. It is nice to not have to bundle up like a snow bunny every day. I feel like the little brother from The Christmas Story, where he gets pushed over and he is so bundled up that he cannot get up! haha This is literally me when it is cold outside.

For today’s post I will be sharing a favorite of mine, which is perfect for Valentine’s Day, which is fast approaching.  You can also wear this as a transitional piece and take it through fall and winter, and even into the spring when the temps are still a bit cooler. Plus, you do not need to spend a lot on this whole look, which is always an added bonus.

Today’s Look:

Romper – I am wearing a size 4. This romper is so fun and comfy. You can dress it up for date night, with heals and a wrap, or dress it down for a dinner party with little booties and a leather jacket. This romper comes in sizes 0 – 12 and is only $31.00!

IMG_2056 fixed

MulesOk, as you can tell I kinda love these mules, but they are so comfy! They come in sizes 5-10.

IMG_2047 fixed

Blanket Scarf – I LOVE cozy scarves, and I love blanket scarves even more. Pair those two things together and I am one happy girl. They are so versatile as well. You can wear them as a scarf, shawl, jacket, or cape. Modcloth has a wide variety of scarves and accessories and I’m sure you’ll find one that you’ll just love. They come in five different colors, perfect for fall and winter.

Hump Day Sweaters.

Happy Hump Day loves!

I am so sorry that I have been M.I.A for the past week, but work and life has just been CRAZY! I have finally been able to catch up, and I can share all of my current looks with you.

For today’s look, I will be sharing with you a MUST for these crazy cold temps! I swear spring and summer cannot come fast enough, even though the forecast calls for temps in the 50’s this weekend (can that just stay?) Sweaters, especially the turtleneck sweater, is what has been getting me through these below freezing days. I know some are immediately turned off when they hear the word turtleneck, and your mind automatically jumps to uniforms in elementary school, or your great aunt, but I have always loved a good turtleneck. Now they have such cute one’s to pick from, and I am sure that you will be able to find the perfect one to match your sense of style.

Today’s look:

SweatersMy sweater is from T.JMaxx, but sadly you can only purchase the sweater in the store and not online. However, there are plenty available in house. I have linked sweaters from Nordstrom and T.J. Maxx, both turtleneck and animal print. 

IMG_2066 fixed

Leather leggings – I am wearing a size 26, and these vegan leather leggings have to be one of my favorite pair of pants that I have in my closet. They are so soft, and incredibly comfortable, and they go with anything. They are also incredibly easy to wash, which is always a major plus. They come in sizes 24-31.

IMG_2061 fixed

Mules – I am wearing a size 6, as I found that they tend to run a bit big. However, they are so incredibly comfortable and you can wear them during the day or at night. You can pair them with anything from jeans, to a cocktail dress. They come in sizes 5-10.
