Stripes seem to be a print that dominate my wardrobe. They have that cool preppy chic feel about them and they always pop. I can't help but to be drawn to them! This dress from Style London is a mixed media with stripes on top and swirl of blue and red on the bottom. The skirt actually reminds me of the sky right after the sun has set when the colors are rich and saturated. I love how this dress stands out from the crowd. For whatever reason their website seems to be down, but here's a link to their Facebook. I'm wearing a size small, but found it to be slightly big on me.

Happy Wednesday, friends! So it is the eve of Christmas Eve and I am so happy to FINALLY be done gift shopping haha! I was out yesterday helping my brother finish up his gifts and him finally picking out a gift for himself. Let me tell you though, it was complete madness at the stores. The Christmas rush is on!

With all things Christmas on my mind, I chose this plaid dress with beading along the collar and pockets (I forgot to photograph them!) that instantly has me dreaming of cozy family gatherings, baking cookies, exchanging gifts, and signing carols. Plaid is such a classic print and one that feels so festive. What really got me though was the beautiful beading along the white collar. Pretty little details like that simply make me swoon.

I hope everyone is enjoying this festive week!

Happy Monday! There's nothing I love more than a pretty pink dress and this one pulls out all of the stops. The hot pink color is so eye catching and the sequins really add some nice dimension to the outfit. I wore this out on a date night Justin and I had, it's important to still have some alone time when you have a baby!,  and got so many compliments on it. Whenever I want something that makes people stop and ask where I got it, I always shop here. This hot pink dress did not disappoint!

I was very excited to receive this pink sheath dress from Jennifer Lopez's collection at Kohls. The ever so subtle shimmer means its perfect for a night out or a festive holiday party. While red, green, gold, and silver are the popular colors for the season, why not stand out in a pretty feminine shade of pink? Amp up the cool girl vibe by swapping out pumps for some oxford flats. Your feet will thank you by the end of the evening. A mid sized clutch allows you to store all of your essentials while still being sleek and chic.

There's nothing like a gold party dress during the holidays. Not only is this great for Christmas, but also for ringing in the New Year. I gravitate toward anything that glistens, shines and gives off the ever so subtle sparkle. To me, that sparkle means its a time to celebrate and party with friends and family. The gold sequins of this dress twinkle to give off the most festive feeling. With gold, I like to keep things either monochromatic or to inject some pops of color in, this time with red. The holiday season gives the perfect excuse to get all dolled up, especially with some sparkle!

There's something so festive and energizing about red during the winter and holiday season. It's one of my go to's when choosing an outfit, especially a party one. The eye-catching color and sparkly sequins are sure to get you noticed and stand out from the crowd. Of course, using a bright red lipstick felt appropriate. I read that heat signifying shades, like bright red, hot pink, orange, and yellow trigger energy levels. Wearing a lipstick, shirt, or dress in those shades during the winter keeps you feeling cheery and excited when feeling down from the dreary weather. I used gold as the neutral color, which pairs so well with red, in all of my accessories. A nice little vintage feather hat feels ever so classy without feeling too over the top.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I find myself getting more excited than ever for the upcoming holiday season. With that comes social gatherings with friends and family alike that are always filled with laughter, reminiscing, and great conversations. To me, the holiday season is one of the best times of the year. I anxiously await it and the dazzling style that comes with it. Once the holidays hit, I like to bring out pieces that incorporate embellishments into them, whether it be actually on the piece or added with some jewelry. This dress from Modcloth reminds me of Thanksgiving with its black and tan stripes. Easy and comfortable for a big family gathering or a smaller intimate one. Add on some statement jewelry to add that little bit of sparkle. The leopard heels from Nine West feel perfect and add a nice pop to the outfit. Finish with a clutch, this embellished one from my mom, in black.  

On a side note, I did a "no makeup" look with this dress. Basically, a look of highlights and contours with subtle mascara and a nude lip. Taylor Swift recently did a magazine cover doing the no makeup look and I thought, why not try it? While I definitely love my go-to, this was a nice change of pace and felt fresh.

Shop The Look:

As soon as I laid my eyes on this LC Lauren Conrad dress, I knew I had to have it. First off anything with bows is an absolute must. Add in the tuxedo twist and I'm sold. It's having a little menswear infused into a very lady like ensemble. Perfect for a night out on the town. My bow bag from Forever 21 matches perfectly with the tuxedo theme. Any bag with a black bow on it with will fit the bill. The beret style hat, white with a black bow on it from Modcloth, seems as if it were made especially for the dress. Not only does this outfit have a menswear feel to it, but also a Parisian look too. Anything French in my book is solid gold. Speaking of, I accompanied the outfit with gold jewelry, and finished off with a pair of LC black high heels adorned with a gold bow on them.

Pretty in Polka Dots

Transient

Can anyone say I Love Lucy?? As soon as I saw this dress it reminded me of the lovable red head who always seemed to get her zany self into a sneaky scheme. That by the way is my favorite show. I watch it constantly, almost every day. The classic fit and flare design with pretty polka dots looks straight out of the 1950s. The cream belt cinches in the waist, perfect for creating a nice figure. To complete the outfit are cream colored heels. The dress comes from Modcloth, an essential store for anyone looking for classic designs or vintage flair.

The baubles for this outfit include a pearl and multi-color stone necklace, a purple stone ring and pearl earrings accented in gold all belonging to my mother. My usual tennis bracelet and and rings round out the bunch.

Twirling Tulle

Fabulous Fabric

ballerina dress

One fabric I love year round is tulle. I could simply wear this fabric forever and never tire of it. In essence, tulle has a whimsical and romantic quality to it. Its what ballerina skirts are made of and the choice fabric for wedding dresses and princess ball gowns everywhere. This LC Lauren Conrad dress not only combines tulle and lace together, but comes in the prettiest shade of blue there is. Not quite green enough for mint and not quite powdery enough for baby blue, this falls somewhere in between the two creating a wonderfully beautiful palette. Notice the collar too, this dress has always been one of my favorites from LC's line and continues to be one of my choice dresses to wear for any event. I wore my mint green metallic cap toe heels from Zara to complete the look.

jewlery

The jewelery for this outfit consisted of an aqua marine and gold bracelet of my mother's, along with a sapphire and gold necklace also belonging to her.  I've been wearing this necklace almost every day since my everyday necklace, the gold heart Justin gave me, broke along the chain. It's currently being fixed, but I needed another one to wear in the mean time. The earrings, not visible here, are also from my mother; gold hearts with pink enamel along the one edge.

Chelsea likes to watch me take my photos. While photographing the dress, Chelsea watched from the front porch of which I was standing right in front of. How cute does my baby look?! I couldn't help buy snap a quick picture of her as she gazed out of the door.

Seaworthy

Sail Away

Nautical

My nautical love has been going strong all Summer long and has no end in sight. As August heads into September, and we are all reminded that Autumn is approaching with the cool night air (it's been as low as 50 in the Northeast!) transitioning your clothing is now becoming required. Something as simple as a light blazer will do the trick. A cardigan will work as well, but blazers have a polished feel to them that a cardigan cannot match. This blue and white stripped dress, with gold accented jewelry, feels fresh and breezy for Summer. To combat the cooler night air, simply slip into a similarly styled blazer, this one from Banana Republic with subtle blue and white stripes, to keep you warm and perfectly polished as you make those Summer nights to remember.

Jewelry completes an outfit and can either make you feel dressed to the nines or subtly shimmering with key pieces placed here and there. Whatever your jewelry style may be, it goes without saying that these gems have an impact. I always use jewelry that is personal to me. Rarely do I ever wear something that was bought just because I thought it was pretty. There is always a story or a memory attached to mine. Here, the pin on the blazer belonged to my mom along with the anchor earrings, which I've been wearing all summer long. The necklace I received as a gift because of the nautical feel to it.

Dreary days literally call out for a little pick me up. What better way than by wearing bright and cheery colors! Blush tones have always been a favorite of mine to add a little pep in your step. This color also feels very feminine and ladylike, two things I always strive for. So why not store away those winter hues and dig out some beautiful Spring time shades for a light and airy look.

The blazer, dress, and shoes are all LC Lauren Conrad from her Kohls line. The clutch comes from Loft. The femininity of the blazer and the blush tone are what originally caught my eye. Notice the scalloped edges and how it just flows around the body. I chose a nude heel to compliment this look and to have them blend in rather than stand out. Also notice the bow detailing on the heels, it's all in the details ladies!

Pastel's will always go hand in hand with Spring. Luckily for me, I wear pastels throughout the whole year and absolutely love them. They look and feel fresh, which is what Spring is all about as well as lightening up on the layers and the colors in your closet. So why not put a smile on someones face as you breeze by in your effortless blush tone outfit, and remember, it's all about having fun!
