Hello Loves I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I have been a little MIA lately because Andy and I have been remodeling our condo. Since, we are doing most of the work ourselves it’s taking up a lot of my spare time. After a long day of hard labor I want nothing more than to slip into something comfortable and cute! A couple of weeks ago I ordered a dress from Romwe with the intention of wearing it “out,” but once I go the delivery, I realized the dress had another purpose – lounge wear! This pink wrap dress is so comfortable I have been wearing it around my house like a robe. The fabric is so soft I literally sleep in it. With that said I am hoping their t-shirts feel the same way? I just ordered a bunch and can’t wait to pair them with boyfriend jeans and my new kicks! For those of you looking to change up your wardrobe and save major bucks I recommend checking out Romwe. They have amazing styles at 70% off including accessories and shoes!

Everyone needs a signature white blouse. I’ve been searching for an option that was simple but also made a statement with its unique design and flattering shape. Fortunately, a recent partnership with Shein has put me on the right path. I am obsessed with this white puff sleeve off the shoulder self tie blouse (say that 3x fast). In this post I paired it with grey distressed jeans from H&M and white strappy heels from Steve Madden. What I love most about off the shoulder look is the flattering neckline. I think having an exposed shoulder is sexy, flirty, and feminine. I picked out some amazing options for those of you looking to try out this fun look. See them below
Since the choker trend is still going strong I wanted to showcase some of the amazing “affordable” pieces from Forever21. The necklace I am wearing came in a set of three but for this look I opted to wear it separately. I love the thin chain because it gives off an illusion of a floating pendent. Forever 21 has a tons of options for pretty accessories which have been hand picked by me below.
Sometimes all you need is an accessory to complete your outfit. As we head into the fall season it’s a great time to start thinking about the details. For me, it’s all about accessories and phone cases? Most people don’t think about fashion and tech tools in the same arena but it’s a trend I am seeing more and more especially on instagram. Adding a personalized touch on your cell phone or laptop can really bring your look and office space together. Plus, for those of you heading back to school this is a fun way to make a first impression among new friends! Right now, I am obsessed with marble everything including these phone and laptop skins from Caseapp. Along with dozens of designs on their website you also have the option to design your own! I posted about this brand a couple months ago and designed a summer phone case, which I am obsessed with! You can see the post here. As we head into fall, I wanted to keep things minimal and clean which is why I chose the marble for my latest phone case and laptop skin. Check out some of my favorite designs below …

I cannot believe summer is coming to an end, whyyyy? After going through several emails titled “back to school” it hit me – fall is on the way! So I am trying to make the most of what’s left with some flirty, wrap dresses! This one in particular was worn on one of the hottest days of the summer. I must say it was a perfect fit for a very HOT day! Aside from their comfortable wear, wrap dresses are feminine and I absolutely love how they move with your body. Flattering on any shape, they create such a beautiful curvy illusion with every step. Diane von Furstenberg invented the wrap dress. Season after season she continues to turn heads with her stunning trademark designs. Although the dress I am wearing is not DVF, it did inspire this post. For many people, having a DVF hanging in their closet is a luxury because they can be pricey. So below I put together a wish list of budget friendly options by SheIn. Check them out!
When it comes to style I always prefer to take the more comfortable route. Day to day I am wearing business formal attire which consists of dresses, blouses, suits and heels. Although I love dressing up – I usually CAN NOT wait to get home to change into something comfortable. I love a loose pair of boyfriend jeans and a crop top or (in this case) a body suit and a pair of distressed shorts. The bodysuit I am wearing is by MakeMeChic. I am in love with the self-tie center, a simple detail that gives the look personality along with a sexy edge which can be easily transformed from day to night. The icing on the cake? This bodysuit was under $20 bucks – DOUBLE WIN!
I do admit though I am a bit obsessed with bodysuits and at that price I am stocking up! Check out some of my favorite picks below!

We are smack in the middle of summer and I am in a rush to make the most of it. I am the type of person who loves heat – and there is no better place to celebrate than the beach. In New Jersey, our coast line is filled with amazing beaches like Long Branch, Point Pleasant and Cape May. Each one is unique to its specific location and all are great places to getaway, relieve stress and enjoy life. So – now that you know where I will be for the rest of the summer it’s time to get into beach attire. Right now I am loving Planet Blue. All of their clothing just speaks to me, especially their swimwear. I love their free spirit, positive vibes and just ultra-cool girl persona. Their bikinis and one pieces are fun, flirty and most importantly comfy! I picked some of my favorite pieces for the summer you can check them out below. Let me know what you think plus, don’t miss out on their free shipping!

Happy Hump Day! I am finally getting around to posting about some of my favorite jewelry trends this summer. At the very top of my list? Turquoise and silver. The combination is classic with a little bit of western flare which I adore for this season and for tan skin! The particular pieces I am wearing in these photos are from Yoins.com, a fast fashion company featuring huge discounts on their products. If you are anything like me you lose your jewels often which means you need to stay on budget and save big time! For this look I wanted to keep things dark but edgy enough for the summer so I opted for a simple dress from Forever21 along with a choker, bracelet and rings from Yoins. For more photos of this look just continue reading …
Morning Loves! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend full of laughs and tons of love. I took a trip down to the Jersey Shore for the first time in three years and boy did it feel good! A group of us met at Jenkins in Point Pleasant, it’s this amazing beach that almost comes off as a resort, with a boardwalk and restaurants all around. The weather was phenomenal and so was the company. I did a ton of people watching and let’s just say I laughed a lot. Most of my day was captured on Snapchat so if you follow me you got a glimpse of the fun.
Beachy weather gets me in this mood for 90’s inspired off the shoulder tops. This one I’m wearing is from Shein and I paired it with a button up skirt from H&M. The top from Shein was under $20.00, yea total steal! They offer tons of cute clothing at 70% off the original price. I pulled a few looks aside for you guys – you can check them out at the bottom. The pattern I am wearing is a bit bold, but that’s how I am feeling at the moment. Strong, bold and independent. The Jersey Shore also brought out the travel bug in me – and I am itching for another weekend trip. Any suggestions? View Post
Ever since I was a little girl I always had a connection with nature and the outdoors. Laying down under the trees, listening to the rustling of the leaves always made me feel refreshed and revived. I got a delivery this week – and instantly I was reminded of my childhood. It was a JORD Watch with its signature wooden finish. To me, the watch represents the simple things in life, and although time never stops certain moments do like my memory under the trees.
The company is very unique for several reasons but one of their most valuable initiatives is sustainability and the value of living to your truest potential. Instantly after reading this on their website I was connected with the brand. I am against the corporate model and it’s nice to see company’s supporting life and work balance, and what better way to do it then with a watch.
“The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.” – JORD
Hello Dolls, I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I was practicing my hosting skills for HGTV at a local marble and granite warehouse. My mom is updating her already updated kitchen with new granite so I tagged along. If you are following me on snapchat then you got a glimpse of the final pick. When it comes to interior design I like to take the minimalistic approach, simple with neutral colors. The dress I am wearing though is anything but simple. Animal print comes off very loud in my opinion (not really my cup of tea) but there is something liberating and fun about this dress. You can’t tell by looking at it, but the whole dress is completely sheer. It’s so light and airy, perfect for a hot night on the town (literally its 100 degrees out here).
