Satin Dress c/o || LC Lauren Conrad Faux Fur Jacket (Old, Similar) || Rose Gold Shoes|| Glitter Minaudiere Box Clutch || Jackie Kennedy Earrings || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || 

Good morning and happy Wednesday, friends! I must say that I felt like a silver screen siren wearing this satin dress from Chicwish. Satin has always reminded me of the movie goddesses gracing the big screens in the 30s and 40s. They always seemed to be dressed to the nines in their luxurious silky fabrics! This dress has beautiful movement that swishes and sways with each and every step. Not only that, but the color, a nice deep wine, is stunning and quite festive this time of the year. The dress also comes in a midnight navy blue. It fits true to size and has a darling bow to cinch the waist and give the always flattering fit-and-flare style.

Sweater Dress c/o || JustFab Heels c/o (Similar) || Similar Sequin Clutch || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet || Jackie Kennedy Earrings ||  

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends! I went to go see the Nutcracker and the Four Realms, which definitely put me in the Christmas spirit. I also started and finished watching the series Bodyguard on Netflix. I’m pretty sure it just came out. It’s a good one! It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. My dad and I also went to my church’s roast beef dinner and had the yummiest meal. Did everyone enjoy the extra hour of sleep? I’ve always loved that extra hour of shut eye, but it gets dark early now, which is sad, haha. Daylight is precious.

 This red sweater dress, like the Nutcracker, also puts me in the festive spirit! It’s a ribbed material with faux pearls trimmed along the front. The fit and flare style is darling and fun for a bit of a twirl. While the Christmas season comes to mind for this dresss, I’m also thinking of it as something to wear for Thanksgiving too. I’ve always been particularly drawn to a red dress for special occasions, be it a holiday or even a school dance. Fun fact, almost every school dance I went to, I wore a red dress. This one from Chicwish definitely fits the bill!

Good morning and happy Friday, friends! If there is one fall fabric that has never gone out of style and I dare say would be considered a “trend” every year, it’s tweed. Visions of an elegantly dressed Coco Chanel always come to mind when thinking of this staple item. I always get a bit nostalgic when gazing upon tweed items. Be it a tweed dress, skirt, blazer, bag, or shoe, the fabric, much like the season it represents, seems to bring me a sense of wistful romantic notions and a longing for the good ol’ days. Each tweed piece has a timeless feeling about it just like this dress from Sail To Sable, a brand that evokes a sense of classic whimsy with a nod to New England style. This particular dress has cap sleeves (a favorite of mine!) with a custom designed plaid pattern in bold blue and green. The fringe right above the hemline adds a fun detail to the whole look!

Air turning crisp, leaves falling, apple picking, pumpkin carving, golden sun setting, hay riding, cozy cuddling, fashion layering, pie baking, candles flickering, sweater wearing, food comforting, trick or treating. Hello October.

I can’t help but to be mad for plaid now that autumn is in full swing. This ladylike midi shirt dress has a gorgeous deep forest green color and major retro vibes. Some other current plaid dress favorites are this fit and flare dress, this plaid tweed shirt dress, this silk a-line dress, this button front dress, this ruffle sheath dress, this faux wrap dress, and this tie neck fit and flare dress

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was JAM packed and tons of fun! I always find from this point until the end of the year to be the busiest. Our calendar is completely filled already! One of the highlights from this past weekend was going to the Bloomsburg fair. It was truly a treat to go. The weather ended up being spectacular, even a bit too warm, and tons of people despite it being the last day.

Good morning, friends! If there’s one color that’s been dominating my fall wardrobe as of late, it’s this mustard shade. It pairs beautifully with all of autumn’s dazzling colors and brightens the dreariest of days. This maxi dress in particular has a nice heavy weight to it making it superb for evading the chilly temps. It also is a figure friendly fit and flare style, my eternal favorite, especially for doing a little twirl in! An affordable option at just $20 and with tons of comfort in the chicest style, this dress is a must!

Good morning and happy Tuesday! Fall officially arrived this past weekend with a cool crispness to the air that was oh so appropriate. I couldn’t wait to wear this tassel embellished shift dress from Chicwish. Purple has been a reigning color in my wardrobe this year with no end in sight. This shift dress is lightweight making it essential to layer for some added warmth. Aside from the beautiful color combination, the tassel embellished faux pockets make my heart sing! Who doesn’t love a good embellishment?! The detail gives the dress that extra bit of glam.

Good morning, friends! I always feel my best when I’m wearing a certain color or color combination that I love. They brighten my mood and put a smile on my face. I tend not shy away from wearing pastels in the fall and winter nor do I from wearing mustard or an olive green in the spring and summer. Simply put, if a color makes you happy, rock it whenever you want! I honestly did not even realize until I was putting this post together that I was wearing all of my favorite colors and ones that have meaning for me. It was an outfit to cheer up a day that started out very gray and dull (the sun came out towards the end of the day much to everyone’s surprise.)

 I have an old dress from Modcloth I like to call my lemonade dress. It’s a punchy pink on top with a bow tie neck and a bright yellow pleated skirt. It is one of my all time favorites and served as inspiration for this particular look. I started with the mustard circle skirt, that flows and swish’s so very beautifully, topped off with a very lightweight blush turtleneck. As soon as the weather starts to cool,  I bring out all of my turtlenecks, which are my go-to for simple layering. These velvet heels not only feel incredibly comfortable to wear, but they're also chic and add a bit of luxe to any ensemble. The color online says taupe, but to me and just about everyone else who saw them, they look purple, another special and sentimental color for me. It was my mother’s favorite and one that will always remind me of her. The navy bag adds a feminine touch with its stunning embroidered floral design in shades of pink and green. Last, but not least, the burgundy knit blazer. This is another piece I’ve had from LC Lauren Conrad for many years. Its a workhorse blazer in my closet. I’ve worn it so many times and it never disappoints. The color adds such richness to an outfit.

Blush Sweater || Blazer || Houndstooth Ruffle Skirt || Blush Vanity Bag || Burgundy Heels (Old, Similar) || Tortoise Necklace || Ava Bracelet || Ava’s Dress || 

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did some antiquing and hit up a local craft show and a harvest fest, both of which were fabulous! They definitely put me in a fall state of mind, even though the weather decided to switch back to summer for a brief period. We had temperatures reaching into the 90s. Also, for my friends and family in the southeastern part of the U.S., specifically North and South Carolina, please stay safe! We’re praying for you! 

 While I love the rich hues of autumn, there is one color I wear year round, regardless of the season. Some may shy away from blush or rosy colors this time of the year, but they blend beautifully with fall’s vibrant color palette. On Ava, we see the very popular color combo of gray and pink, usually mixed with some white, for fall. Imagine a cozy pink sweater with white jeans and gray suede over the knee boots. I’m wearing some warmer tones to mix blush with and the ever popular classic houndstooth print. Pairing an accessory in blush can be an alternative way to work the color into your autumn ensemble as well. This vanity box bag, which Ava and I both love!, has a wonderful vintage vibe that works very well with the nostalgic feeling Fall tends to have. The color is gorgeous along with the gold hardware.

Happy Wednesday, friends! I have to say, I am quite enamored with this dress and embellished coat from Julie Brown NYC. Both pieces provide effortless elegance and a classic sophistication. The sleeveless dress is made with a heavy quality fabric and it has pockets! The coat has three dazzling embellishments that look like broaches and stand out beautifully agsinst the navy background. My jaw dropped open when I saw the coat! The embellishments over the buttons make this coat stand out from the rest. Don’t put all of your summer accessories away just yet either! While mint may be thought of more so in the spring, it worked perfectly for this fall ensemble. I truly felt like Jackie Kennedy while wearing these pieces. They are absolutely breathtaking together!

Good morning and happy Tuesday, friends! Welcome to September as well!! I hope everyone had a lovely Labor Day weekend. Summer’s last hurrah was well spent in my neck of the woods. My family and I had our traditional cookout, got some sale shopping in, spent time at the lake, and went to Jim Thorpe for some outdoor activities and strolling around town. I was impressed with the one coffee shop there called Muggles Mug. The theme throughout is Harry Potter (along with rock music) and even the drinks are Harry Potter themed! I got the butterbeer latte, which was butterscotch flavored and oh so delicious! A definite must for any Potter fan. It was overall a fantastic holiday weekend spent with loved ones. 

A few days ago I spotted this beautiful field filled with goldenrod and sunshine. It instantly reminded me of fall! It was the perfect backdrop for some close up photos of this green waterfall dress. September’s weather can be all over the place, especially in the beginning when the temperature’s still on the warmer side. This weekend was a perfect example with some days being in the high 60s and then some being in the high 80s approaching 90s. On the warmer days, I like to wear autumn hues and details in my look, while still being able to keep cool in lighter fabrics like this dress. It’s runs true to size and works wonderfully as an evening dress or for your Sunday best!

Happy Friday, friends! Today I’m very honored to introduce a brand I’ve only just found out about, Réna Iman. This classic blush clutch, with a customized tag featuring Ava’s birthstone, provides that beautiful  personal touch and is made of the highest quality leather inside and out. What really makes this brand quite special is how their handcrafted timeless pieces go on to support stopping violence against women one unique story at a time. A portion of every purchase is donated to the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance and the Joyful Heart Foundation. 

 It’s hard to believe this is the last official meteorological day of summer. It truly did fly by in the blink of an eye as summer usually tends to do. The first calendar day of fall is September 22, but meteorologically it starts on September 1st. There’s still plenty of warm weather left though making this romantic wrap dress an absolute must! It’s on sale now for only $15 too. It’s light and airy with the most beautiful ruffles and watercolor print. There’s also a black and a rose version as well. I love how it flows and all of the feminine details making me feel at my very best. 

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend! We’re planning some outdoor activities and of course a fireworks show. Cheers!!

Happy Wednesday, friends! This is one of those dresses that works well in both the spring and the fall. It’s light enough for the warm days, but the longer sleeves feel nice during the cooler mornings and evenings. There is a tie neck, which I love!, but it does blend in with the rest of the dress making it hard to see in these photos. The dark floral print feels appropriate for fall and is how I transition my year long love for florals into the new season. This floral print pops nicely against the navy background as well!

While I cannot wait to wear, and have already worn some of the richer shades for fall, I still like to incorporate my love for pastels, especially blush, into the season where burgundy, olive, pumpkin, and mustard reign supreme. I tend to use blush as a neutral, but you’d be surprised how well it pairs with just about any color. The blush bag and white heels lighten the darker look making it great for the in-between season.

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Honestly, mine started off being very stressful, but thankfully my family stepped in and all of us ended up having a terrific time together. A few highlights were some local festivities including a peach festival and an arts/craftshow at the local penn state campus. 

This pearl embellished dress from Chicwish is the embodiment of old Hollywood glamour. I wanted the look to have a retro glam feel with pearl jewelry, warm golden accessories, and a simple twisted roll up-do. I love the simple elegance of the whole ensemble. Classic, understated, and a total showstopper. This dress got quite a few complements while I was out as well! The dress runs true to size.

It’s whimsically romantic and the prettiest shade of blush. This skirt has a magical quality to it. It really does! It’s one of those pieces that can make you feel at your best. It can set the mood for the entire day. Doesn’t the skirt remind you of Carrie Bradshaw in the opening of Sex And The City too?? There is a new black style that was just released as well. When I saw there was a matching skirt for the little ones, I knew this would be perfect for my little mini me and I. Ava and I felt like princesses and everyone that saw us stopped to say how much they loved our outfits. It’s was the coolest day! We danced and twirled all while laughing and having a good time. Kisses and hugs included <3 I’m wearing an XS/Small and Ava is in a 3-4 year.

Good morning and welcome to August! This month is a special one since it’ll be Ava’s third birthday. I can hardly believe she’ll be turning three. Where did all of that time go?! I feel like I was just holding her in my arms for the first time in the hospital when she was born. She’s very excited to be turning three. It’s been a big topic of conversation lately, lol.  

It’s no secret I’ve been enchanted by all things yellow this summer. Many of my outfits have included the happy color either with the accessories or as the centerpiece of an ensemble. This particular look, with a gorgeous floral wrap dress, steps things up a notch creating a monochromatic silhouette. This darker shade of yellow is perfect for transitioning into fall as well. The dress is currently on sale for only $14 and fits true to size.

It’s included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which ends August 5th. These red bow flats, which I am obsessed with, are also a part of the sale. The red color is striking and the bow on the flats is adorable. Top notch with good details. I had so many people come up to me on our day out to tell me how much they liked the outfit, which to me, is clear that it’s a winner! Both fit true to size. I’m wearing a 0p in the dress.

Good morning, friends. First, I want to express my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Kate Spade. My heart goes out to them. I was completely shocked and saddened to learn of her passing yesterday. Her brand and vision have always been an inspiration for me bringing color, sparkle, and whimsy into the fashion world. I remember getting my first Kate Spade bag only a few years ago and what a monumental moment that was for me. She brought affordable luxury to the masses and allowed us to peak into her world of fun and vibrant colors. She did live colorfully and she did leave a little sparkle everywhere she went. Thank you Kate. You will be missed. 

This was one of my most favorite photography shoots we did while on vacation in Cape Cod. I told Ava these were our princess dresses, which she loved! She kept telling me we looked like princesses for the rest of the night. She didn’t want to take her dress off. Both of our dresses are from Chicwish, a favorite of mine. I was happy to see they started carrying children’s clothing too. As soon as I spotted this tulle floral dress, I knew Ava would not only love it, but look darling in it. She’s wearing a size 3-4. She wears a 3T now. My heart swooned a bit when I saw my dress. It’s perfect for any formal event, especially with wedding season upon us. Mine is currently sold out, but I linked some similar ones also from Chicwish.

We took these photos at the JFK memorial on my 30th birthday. A great way to end a very memorable day. This is my favorite spot on all of the Cape and that’s saying a lot since every spot on the Cape is charming and dreamy. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous going down behind the memorial and glistening on the water fountain. It’s relaxing and very peaceful to be there, especially with Veternas Beach being in front of the memorial too. It’s a great little spot to come and the spot where I initially fell in love with Hyannis. I can’t wait to share the rest of our photos from our vacation!

Good morning, friends! There’s nothing I love more than a beautiful dress. If I had to choose one item to wear for the rest of my life, it would be that. As soon as my eyes spotted this chiffon dress, I was in love! The vibrant pink and mint floral pattern had my heart swooning along with the flirty ruffles and figure flattering tie waist. The subtle breeze would pick up every now and then and allow the dress to flow beautifully. To match in the same lively floral print is this turnlock clutch. I’ve always been a big fan of matching as gives a sense of vintage timelessness and having a competed look. This bag is on sale now and under $20!

Good morning and happy Friday, friends! Today is also affectionately know as “May The Fourth Be With You” for all of my Star Wars fans! We’ll be celebrating by going to a baseball game where they’ll have the Star Wars characters walking around. I can’t wait! This weekend is also Cinco De Mayo and my brother’s fiancé is graduating from college so it’s going to be a busy one. 

My love for lavender continues! It’s easy to fall in love with this drss with its fluttering ruffles, springtime florals made up of warm reds and yellows, and a stylish crisscross back. The material is very light and airy making it great for the warm spring and summer days. I’m quite taken with this lavender bag too! While it’s not a circle bag, which has been my current go-to, the shape is so unique and interesting and of course the lavender color totally has my heart. I love that it’s pretty roomy too and an added bonus of gold hardware. 

Cheers to the weekend!!
