Pineapple Tee and Fringe Jeans by ILY COUTURE

Sunday, April 30, 2017

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! I got a good work out in and cleaned my entire house. I even did all my laundry for the week. I can finally breath and do what I enjoy doing "blogging" about companies I enjoy working with. This is my first time working with  ILY COUTURE and they are mostly known for their graphic tops. There is simply no better way to show off your individuality and sense of style than with a graphic T-shirt from their signature collection. They have a T-shirt fit for every occasion for every type of woman. I choose the Pineapple Solo Tee  with the White Superfray Skinny Jeans.


My Cali Splatter Sunglasses are from ILY COUTURE as well and only $38!


I'm seriously loving the fringe on these jeans. 
Size Tip: My white jeans are by BlankNYC and they run true to size. I'm wearing a size 25 for size reference. My studded heels are under $45 and also come in black. They are available in most sizes.

Summer Essentials

Sunday, April 23, 2017

I'm so excited that summer is right around the corner. However, I rather spend my money on a fun vacation. I have been working with SHEINSIDE for a few months, and I absolutely love how affordable their clothes is. This dress with ruffles is only $13, yes ladies that is it! It runs true to size and I'm wearing a small for size reference. I also loved that the material was thick and not sheer. Having a cute beach tote is a must for summer. This cute Flamingo Straw Tote caught my eye right away and it is only $24. My sunglasses are from DIFF EYEWEAR! They have different styles for everyone. My tassel earring and bracelet set are from Purple Peridot, and they will definitely be on major repeat this summer. If you don't own a straw hat, it's definitely a must for those hot summer days or beach days.


These Marc Fisher wedges are the comfiest and go with just about everything. My exact ones are currently available in all sizes. If you are on a budget and would like a similar pair for $59.95, then check these ones out made by Steve Madden. I may need to get the black pair.

MY BIRTHDAY at 32!

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

  So glad we are half way through the week. I turned 32 this past weekend and I've never felt better. I wanted this post to be about me. So I decided to get personal and share 32 things you may not know about me. I felt amazing in this lace dress, and I linked similar lace dresses at the bottom of my post. This layered necklace is from The Styled Collection and it's $34. My studded heels are currently available in ALL sizes. They run TTS, and are under $45. In case you missed my LIVE video last night, I got some good questions I could answer for you.

Weekend Getaway

Wednesday, April 5, 2017

I have been looking forward to a weekend getaway for a while now. The only thing I can ask for was great weather. I am more of a Spring/Summer kinda girl. My go-to outfit for hot sunny days are tank tops, shorts and my Tory Burch sandals. I've teamed up with Sloan Ranger and All for color to bring you this vacation ready outfit.

My anchor duffel bag was perfect for my weekend getaway. Canvas Duffel bags are great for travel, sisterhood retreats, sleepovers, or just a weekend at home from college. You can also get your duffel bag personalized with a name, monogram, or initial. I had to choose the anchor print, but they do come in 7 other prints. The shoulder strap is detachable if required, and adjustable too. Fully lined on the inside, it also features vegan friendly leather trim. I packed about four outfits including 3 pair of shoes. It also comes in this style, called "anchor weekender" which is perfect for your weekend getaway.
