Spring Is In The Air


Bell Sleeve Dress c/o || Similar Sandals || Mar Y Sol Bag || Similar Straw Fedora || KEP Earrings c/o || DW Rose Gold Watch c/o ||  

Good morning and happy Friday!! While most of the north east got hit with another nor’easter a few days ago, there is still a sense (maybe it’s a strong hope!) that spring weather is right around the corner. One of my favorite things to wear in spring is a crisp white dress. It looks and feels fresh to go with the new season. I always end up wearing a white dress for Easter too! This dress from Trina Turk features a stripe geo lace with a boatbeck and bell sleeve for some feminine drama. It felt so good to slip into my first white dress of the season. This would be a great choice for a tropical holiday too! 

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend and hopefully you have some spring like weather!

A Ladybug


Lads And Ladybugs Dress c/o ||  Cat Ballet Flats || Similar Straw Hat || JFK Necklace || 

Good morning, friends! Today, I’m excited to share some photos I took of Ava in her dress from Lads And Ladybugs featuring a charming little town scene with a backdrop of beautiful pink hues. I’m head over heels in love with this dress! I’ve always been a big “Main Street USA” fan and love the idea of anything that reminds me of Mayberry, my ultimate Main Street town. Ava thought the dress was pretty and kept looking at the print all day. My little lady! She’s wearing a size 2-3 years from the site, which fit perfectly on her.

First Day Of Spring


LC Lauren Conrad Bomber Jacket (Old, Similar) || Striped Top (TJ Maxx Store, Similar) || Skinny Jeans || Pink Baseball Cap || Pink Sneakers || DW Rose Gold Watch c/o || JFK 100 Pearl Bracelet || Floral Straw Bag (Old, Similar) || 

Good morning friends and happy first day of spring!!! I have been waiting for this day for quite some time now and could not be happier that’s it’s finally here. Mother Nature may not completely agree yet, but winter is officially behind us and that is reason enough to celebrate!

The past few days have been a whirl wind. They literally went by in the blink of an eye! Mr. Sunshine finally came out of hibernation and decided to stick around for the entire weekend so we made sure to get as much vitamin D as possible. This outfits is what I wore on one of our many walks over the weekend, obviously with spring on my mind. I’ll never tire of mixing pink and blue together. The combo is an all time favorite of mine and one that never goes out of style. I’ve had this lace bomber jacket for a few years now and love it’s casual elegance. The straw bag was actually my mom’s. I’m not exactly sure when she got it, but it holds a sentimental value for me. It’s darling for spring and quite spacious too!

March Glossybox + Women & True Beauty


March Glossybox c/o || Ruffle Top c/o || Skinny Jeans || Steve Madden Rose Gold Flats (Old, Similar) || Blush Bench || 

Good morning and happy Thursday! Today I’m excited to bring you the latest Glossybox for March, which is celebrating true beauty for International Women’s Day. We’re reflecting on those amazing ladies in our lives who lead by example, lifting us up when we need it, and singing along side of us when we're feeling fabulous. For me, that woman who I admire for her strength, perseverance, ability to do-it-all, and never give up even when life was unfair to her is my mom. She was strong, warm, kind, and represented true beauty to me inside and out. I could not have asked for a better role model or mother. I miss her every single day of my life. Likewise, I’m also teaching all of the qualities my mother instilled in me to my beautiful daughter. My mother’s love and beauty shines bright from within Ava. 


Now, without further ado, onto the beauty box. I love receiving these boxes monthly boxes. It’s like a mini Christmas every time! I’m wearing the eyeshadow stick that’s included and also the concealer and makeup primer all of which I’ll preview below with the product descriptions. This months box is filled with hard-working, multi-benefit products that will keep you looking and feeling like the girl boss you are.  

Cover FX Perfect Pencil Concealer: Tie versatile tool can be used to define lip and eyebrow arches and conceal trouble spots in an instant. This formula is also waterproof. I thought this did a great job at covering up little imperfections like a single pimple here and there. 

Figs & Rouge Soft Focus Pore Perfect + Matte Veil: Seeking a gorgeous completing? This is your new go-to! Designed to keep skin shine-free and perfect all day, this lightweight primer smooths away imperfections and minimizes the look of pores. Another benefit? The multifunctional formula also gifts blemishes, promising nothing but clear days ahead. This went on so smooth and helped my makeup go on even smoother with little shine throughout the day. Definitely a keeper!   

Form Beauty Multitask: 3 in 1 Leave In Lotion: This 3 in 1 hair perfected will detangle, soften, and refresh your look in one go. Designed to also strengthen your strands against breakage, this nutritive mist, which is infused with coconut oil, Arian oil, avocado oil, and grapeseed oil will keep any style, from beach waves to tight braids, looking fierce. 

 Dw Bruyère Beauté Jumbo Eye Pencil- Bubble 07: Ladies on the go will love this super creamy jumbo eye pencil in the perfect shade of khaki, which can be used as an eyeliner or an eyeshadow. This is definitely a gorgeous color for everyday use and can be layered on for a more dramatic take.

Happy Tuesday, friends! Is there anything that reminds you more of spring than blooming flowers and floral prints? What caught my eye with this top is the fluttery trumpet sleeves and of course the floral print, which is different from other ones I’ve seen recently. It’s a great piece to dress up or down! I’m also loving this pink floral top and this pink cold shoulder one with birds making it have a very whimsical feel! This floral top is the prettiest shade of robins egg blue. I’ve had this LC Lauren Conrad tulle skirt for ages and it’s still one of the most beautiful in my closet. It’s from her Cinerdella collection. I swoon very time I see it!

Black & White Florals


Floral Circle Dress c/o || Humble Chic Cardigan c/o || Ralph Lauren Bag || Sunglasses || Similar Necklace || DW Rose Gold Watch c/o || Similar Shoes ||  

Hello and happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Mine was jam packed filled with seeing family and friends and even getting to meet a new friend. I also got to watch (and loved!) a new series CNN has called American Dynasties: The Kennedy’s Sunday’s at 9pm. There’s six episodes total. 

This dress takes me back to the 1950s and I love every single bit of it! The intricate black and white floral pattern is striking enough on its own, but add in a little pop of color and you have a whole new impact on the look. Typically, I would have gone with red to complete this outfit, but instead went for a bright pink for a more modern take on a classic look/color combination. The dress itself fits true to size and is under $20.

Pretty Pastels

Good morning, friends! If I had to wear one color combination for the rest of my life, it would be pink and blue. I’ve always swooned over the darling duo, especially in pastel shades. There’s nothing that says spring quite like pastels! Another one of the big trends for spring are scarves. There’s so many different ways to wear them, which makes them a fun accessory to have! You could wrap one around the handle on your bag, around your neck, use one as a belt, or even in you hair like I have above. Mine is actually made to be a head wrap so there’s no extra fabric with the tie. I love the vintage vibe they have too!

Outfit 2: Tulip Top || Circle Skirt c/o (Old, Similar) ||  Mini Shooper Bag || Similar Jean Jacket || JustFab Flats (Old, Similar) || 

Hello and a very happy good morning to you!  I fell so in love with this top that I had to show it two ways! Let’s be honest, we rewear our pieces all the time or there’s a certain favorite top/pair of jeans/jacket that is always in constant rotation. I know I have a favorite pair of jeans that I grab for all the time. I’ve worn them on the blog numerous amounts of times. In fact, I’ve worn them so much that I’ve made a conscious effort as of late to showcase other pairs of jeans on here, haha. Regardless, what I love about personal style is seeing people imagine different ways to wear the same piece. Here, I have two different looks, both equally enchanting and easy to recreate. I adore the bright green and pink in this top. Plus, the pretty tulips! Oh spring, where are you?? On that note, we’re getting more snow today. Booo. It’s supposed to be bad enough that we’re even under a state wide state of emergency. Stay safe, everyone!

Bright Pop Of Color

Good morning and happy Monday!  Today is all about some bright happy colors to beat the winter blues. The punch of color from this blazer is truly eye catching. Its so vibrant! I was passing by this building, which turned out to be Canteen 900 Park, and was struck by how colorful the building was. It made for a great backdrop and it turns out the staff and owners are super friendly too! I got to chatting with Adam, who is a bartender there and is in the photo with me above (hi Adam!) and cannot wait to go back to try out some of their food and drinks. Ive been to their other location, Canteen 900, and absolutely love everything there so I have no doubt i’ll be blown away with the Park location. 

For all of my east coast friends, I hope everyone was safe during the Nor’Easter this past Friday. We didn’t get too much snow, but the winds were insane. We had gusts up to 60mph. We lost power for about half of the day and luckily that was the worst of it. Also, the Oscars were last night! The movie montages totally made the show for me. Shout out to Eva Marie Saint for being such a class act. I loved that she got a standing ovation. Also, Jimmy Kimmel taking movie stars over to an unsuspecting audience at a near by theater was AWESOME. Everyone was sooo surprised. Why was I not in that audience?! Haha. What a night.

Flamingo Party


Flamingo Dress c/o || White Bucket Bag || Pink Sunglasses || Rockstud Sandals c/o || Seersucker Blazer (Banana Republic Old, Similar) || DW Rose Gold Watch c/o || 

Happy Friday and a very happy hello to March! I completely forgot to welcome in the new month yesterday. It’s the last full month that could have potential winter weather. Thank goodness, I really need some vitamin D and warmth right about now! 

As soon as I see some sunshine, the spring dresses come out! We were lucky to have three days of spectacular weather this past week so out came all of my spring wear. It felt so good! This sptriped flamingo print dress makes me happy just looking at it. Blue and white always reminds me of spring and summer. How fun are flamingo’s too?! The dress comes with a matching belt and fits a little big. If there was an XS, I would have gone with that, but a Small was the smallest size available. 

Is anyone else as excited for the Oscars as I am?! It is by far my favorite awards show and one I look forward to watching every year. I used to watch it every year with my mom. Justin and I would try to go see all of the Oscar nominated movies in the theater too and then watch the big show together. My favorite moment is when Leo finally took home the Oscar for best actor. I literally started screaming with joy, haha. It’s on ABC Sunday at 8pm. Cheers to all of the silver screen winners!

This dress is what you grab when you have little time to get ready, but still need to look fabulous. I absolutely love how timeless and elegant this dress is too. It’s perfect for wearing at the office and then to drinks afterwards. I accessorized mine with a leopard scarf and the cutest gingham bag that is under $30!

Bow Tie Polka Dot Top c/o || Pink Blazer || AG Skinny Jeans || Similar Polka Dot Heels || Sunglasses || Similar Circle Bag || Jackie Kennedy Cascade Ring || Similar Earrings ||  

Good morning and happy Monday!  It is a very happy Monday indeed. Last night ended the four day streak of nonstop rain that we’ve had and that is reason enough to celebrate! I hope everyone had a great weekend too. Ours was pretty low key with the weather, but we did manage to get out for some Sabatoni’s pizza, had a movie night and did a ton of crafts. Knowing ahead of time that the weather was going to be gloomy, I went to Target and got kids crafting items from their dollar spot section. They have so many cool items right now in preparation for spring! 

To continue with the happy mood, today’s feature is a pink and polka dot combo that is sure to brighten any day and put a smile on your face. Anything pink is an instant mood lifter for me! Polka dots are one of the big trends for spring and this button down top is a great way to incorporate the look into your wardrobe. I love the girly bow tie at the neck! This top is a steal at only $13 and fits true to size. I have on a small. I’ve worn this top multiple times since taking these pictures and love it immensely. I was wearing it during the instastories video I did on Saturday. I want to thank everyone for your encouraging and uplifting words regarding the video on my journey with acne too! I’m thinking I may turn it into a blog post now.

Mommy & Me- Hydrangea Dress


On Me: Sail To Sable Shift Dress c/o || Boater Hat || Similar Blush Heels || Rattan Clutch || Stella & Dot Earrings c/o || Jackie Kennedy Bracelet ||

On Ava: Sail To Sable Shift Dress c/o || Cat Ballet Flat || Cat Hat, New Version || 


Good morning and happy Friday, friends! This post makes me smile so big! Mommy and Me posts are always my favorite. How cute is Ava showing off her dress?! She was especially excited about the pockets, haha. For two days we had some amazing weather with sunshine and temperatures reaching 70 degrees. It was glorious and literally smelled like spring was here, which meant the spring dresses came out!

 These tweed dresses from Sail To Sable are the most beautiful color of hydrangea blue. Cape Cod’s signature flower is the hydrangea which makes these dresses even more special to us. Both are a shift style with fringe at the neckline. Mine also has fringe trimmed along the sleeves and Ava’s has fringe at the front pockets. Speaking of, she loved having pockets to stick her hands into! She’s a smart little lady. Pockets are the best and a feature I always look for myself. I found both dresses to fit true to size and comfortable to wear in the warm weather. I cannot wait to break these out again once spring arrives!

Eyelash Lip Print Tee

Good morning and happy Thursday! Yesterday we had some AMAZING weather and it was marvelous to experience it after all of the snow and cold we’ve been getting. I can’t wait to share some of the Mommy and Me photos Ava and I took while enjoying the warmth. 

I have to admit when I saw this tee, I instantly thought of Marilyn Monroe. The eye shape, long lashes, and of course famous red lips all have me imagining Marilyn while looking at the tee. That alone makes it beyond cool, even though it’s tehnically not Marilyn. She’s always been one of my favorite movie stars and all time icons. Since I had Marilyn on my mind, I wanted the look to be a little more glam with leopard prints and pops of red. The jean jacket adds a casual flair and also some practical warmth since I was headed to the movies while wearing this and knew it would be cooler when I got out of the theater. Trade out the heels for some sneakers and the skirt for some skinny jeans and you have a fabulous weekend ensemble!

Good morning, friends!  Talk about an elevated tee! This embroidered star print velvet tee is just that. It is very soft to the touch and looks out of this world, pun intended!, when on. Besides the shinging stars, I’m really loving the slightly high neck this tee has. I’m wearing an XS here, but I would advise to go up one size. The XS fit fine, but I would have liked a little more length and wiggle room to move around. While I wanted to soften the tee up with some blush colors, another way I would style it is with a black circle skirt. I think it would look absolutely smashing!

Three Bows In A Row

Hello and happy Monday, everyone!  I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I went to go see The Greatest Showman about P. T. Barnum and let me tell you, WOW! I left the theater feeling absolutely dazzled! The songs were upbeat and uplifting, the performances above par, and the scenery was magical. You could not help but to smile. This film is what makes a movie musical great! 

This blush bow dress is the embodiment of romantic whimsy. I cannot get over the darling bows either! They make the dress stand out and give the classic shirt dress style some feminine charm. Transcending all areas, this dress can be worn as a party dress, out for date night, brunch with the girls, or even just around town. I found the dress to fit true to size (I’m wearing an XS) and it’s only $28. I am completely smitten with this dress!

Blue Velvet Dress


 Blue Velvet Dress c/o || Leopard Heels || Rebecca Minkoff Cross Body || Jackie Kennedy Cascade Ring || Stella & Dot Engraved Ring || Similar Earrings || 

Happy Friday, friends! Today’s look is all about a date night out with one of the best fitting dresses! A sheath dress is great for extenuating your curves while feeling sexy and elegant all at the same time. The puff sleeve adds an unexpected detail and even reminds me of the 1980s. Big hair bands anyone?? On a side note, my favorite would be Bon Jovi! I’m wearing a size XS and would recommend definitely checking the size guide on this dress as it is very slim fitting. 

Has anyone been watching Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee on Netflix? They just got the series with Jerry Seinfeld and I am obsessed with it! The episodes only last about 20 minutes so it’s easy to fly through them. If you’re a Seinfeld fan you need to watch this. I originally started watching the comedians I was interested in seeing, but then I watched all of the episodes and they’re fantastic. My favorites are Don Rickles, Steve Harvey, President Obama, Will Farrell and Michael Richards. Though from what I understand, it looks like there are other episodes that aren’t on Netflix. I was wondering why Jason Alexander (George from Seinfeld) wasn’t in an episode and after some searching saw that he does in fact have an episode (with Newman!) but it’s not included in the Netflix roundup. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

This navy linen dress from Julie Brown NYC features a lace up neckline and the ever popular bell sleeves with a little bit of ruffle to them. I immediately thought of  an ocean or lake getaway when I saw this dress. Oh what I wouldn’t give for a warm weather trip right now! I also envisioned pairing it with accessories for a nautical themed ensemble. I cannot wait to start wearing all of my straw and wicker bags again too.

Star Light, Star Bright


Pink Star Top c/o || White Jeans || Cross Body Bag || Glitter Mules || DW Rose Gold Watch c/o || Jackie Kennedy Pearl Earrings || Jackie Kennedy Cascade Ring || Stella & Dot Brier Ring || Stella & Dot Engraved Ring ||  

Good morning, friends!  I hope everyone had a great weekend! Ours was very eventful and the weather even warmed up, but i’ll get to that in a little bit. 

As some of you may or may not know, I have a bit of thing for the star print trend and fell head over heels in love with this top the moment I saw it. The stars are gold foil (my favorite) while the sleeves are beautifully tiered and ever so feminine in the prettiest shade of blush. Sigh. It is one of the loveliest tops I have ever seen. Every detail speaks to me and makes my eyes light up. The top is sheer and does need a camisole underneath. Though we are still in winter, I wanted the outfit to have an air of spring about it pairing the colors of blush, white, and gold together for an effervescent feel. 

This weekend was a blast! First, we had a warm up with temperatures in the 40s. It felt so warm! It’s funny how the 40s in winter feel like a heatwave, while the 40s in fall feel like an arctic blast. I also took Ava to see her first movie on the silver screen. My friend was going with her son and invited us along to see Paddington 2. I wasn’t sure how long Ava would sit for the movie, but she made it about one hour, which was longer than I thought she would. It was a good first experience! I also got out for a girls night to see the new Fifty Shades movie. Oh the end of an era, haha. All of us have gone to see each movie together so it was fun to go see the finale. I was pregnant with Ava when we went to see the first one, which is crazy to think about. Lastly, I started watching This Is Us after hearing so many people rave about it. I know I know, I’m late to the party, but it IS THAT GOOD. Definitely go start watching it if you haven’t already. The first two episodes set up everything and have some surprises in them. Excellent writing.
