Baby Blues

Blouse:: H&M similar here
Pants:: Club Monaco
Necklace:: NY & Co.
Shoes:: BGBGeneration similar here

Happy Friday! The weekend is yet again here! Despite the cooler day we had in the northeast today, my mind is set on summer thoughts which means lights and pastels. Today I'm wearing two more of my finds from my MDW purchases, this fabulous pair of pants from Club Monaco which was a steal for $25 and this necklace that I got from NY & Co.

Clearly baby blue is my color of the season with the shirt from my last post and these pants. It's fun to play with color and find different ways to wear it!

Until next time<3

MDW: Pastels & Neutral Tones

 Blouse :: Loft
Necklace :: NY & Co.
Shorts :: NY & Co.
Flats :: Loft similar here
Clutch :: bebe gift with purchase

I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day Weekend! I know there were tons of great sales to take advantage of, and this look comprises some of my finds. Pastels are big this season and I was more than thrilled with this light blue blouse that I found at Loft. I already own it in black, so when I found it in this spring color I knew I had to get it. The shorts are great because they're high waisted and long enough that you're not showing off too much skin, which makes them appropriate enough for my job. A beautiful statement necklace completes the look bringing the colors together through blue hued jewels and a neutral back plate.

Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful week!!

Kendra's Miami Fashion Challenge!

Hello and happy Friday lovelies! I am very excited for today's post super special blog post. I've been going back and forth with Kendra Thornton, a well known travel expert, who has asked me to style a few looks for her upcoming trip to Miami with her husband as a part of Kendra's Miami Fashion Challenge! Below you will find the details of the challenge followed by my looks:

I am taking a romantic trip to Miami with my husband this summer. Before I go, I need some excellent outfits to wear. These outfits need to be astonishing and chic. This especially needs to be the case when we take photos, and I want to look fantastic when I look back years later. I have created a contest to help me with my wardrobe. This contest is called “Kendra’s Miami Fashion Challenge.” We will be staying at the Delano South Beach Hotel. We found out about this famous spot through gogobot. Furthermore, we learned what venues we should visit while in the warm city of Miami. One of the top things that I will be looking forward to is entering the Delano. I understand the lobby is simply breathtaking. I want my entrance to be memorable and simply perfect. While we are there, I will get to visit Club Essentia. This spa is a unique establishment to say the least. While the priority is on providing guests with traditional spa treatments, there is special focus on procedures that prevent aging. I personally am looking forward to having a facial that will last for an hour. Receiving an authentic Swedish massage will truly put me in the right frame of mind. When it is time for drinks, we will be stopping at the Rose Bar. This spot is ideal for watching people and making a fashion statement around all the glamorous and elegance that is featured in this establishment. We like to dance, and the FDR at Delano is the perfect place to dance the night away. We can have some great Italian food at Bianca, which is located in the hotel. There is a huge variety of rooms that are offered at the Delano. Furniture in rooms is sophisticated but comfortable. I understand the beds are heavenly. When I am dressed perfectly in fashionable attire, going to a restaurant, shopping, swimming in the ocean or having cocktails is thrilling. I have more fun when I have the right attire. In fact, this vacation will be unforgettable with the right clothing. It is hard for me to wait for our trip to begin!

Comfortably Chic Travels

This look is all about finding an outfit that can survive an airplane ride and still have you looking completely put together. The pleated kaftan is great because it's not constricting and shouldn't wrinkle on the flight, but when belted at the waist looks elegant enough to walk down Ocean Drive in Miami. Sunglasses and gold accessories top the look off, and a pop of color in this tote is perfect to add a wow-factor while giving you a cute place to hold your shoes until you're ready to switch to these cute wedges!

Vacation Exploration

This look is all about going out, eating, browsing the markets, and exploring your vacation spot. With Miami in mind, I wanted to create a look with some layers for when you go inside restaurants or shopping in boutiques. Personally, it is sometimes hard for me to choose between a more structured look and something that is a bit more flowy. The choice is yours in this case, choosing between a black peplum top and a sheer blouse to pair with these sophisticated shorts. To add a layer, I chose a teal blazer that can be thrown on whenever it gets a bit too chilly.

Night On The Town

For a night out in Miami you just have to wear something as bright and festive as the environment you're in. I chose a jumpsuit rather than a dress because I wanted an edgier look. While there are edgy dresses, there will be tons of women in dresses in Miami and we want to stand out! I paired the look with a chunky heel for the extra stability to withstand a long night of dancing. Gold accessories and a funky clutch complete the look.

Structured Grunge

Blazer:: H&M
Top:: bebe similar here
Shorts:: similar style here
Boots:: Doc Martens

Today's look is an outfit that I wore to work last week (although I initially wore them with a darker cuffed short). The weather recently has been all over the place hitting crazy warm temperatures while experiencing on and off rain. In order to stay cool but still feel covered enough incase I got caught in the rain, I paired my jean shorts with these black tights. To make the look a little more work appropriate I paired it with a loose fitting blouse that I tucked into the shorts and put a structured short blazer over it. To add an edgy appeal, and to also keep my feet dry from the rain, I finished the look off with my favorite docs.

How do you dress to deal with crazy weather? Let me know in the comments below.

Thanks for reading!

 Blouse :: H&M similar here
Cropped Sweater :: bebe similar here
Shorts :: Forever XXI similar here

If you haven't been able to tell, I'm kind of stuck in a 90s groove these days. Today's look is inspired by Cher Horowitz and her super cute style in the Clueless movie. Mixing different textured pieces can take items that you once felt you wore to death and breathe new life into them. One of my favorite things about fashion is finding new ways to wear old pieces, I was tired of always wearing this cropped sweater with high waisted bottoms but with looks like this I can get a little more creative.

Do you have any interesting ways you like to dress old looks? Let me know in the comments below, and as always thanks for reading!

ASOS Midi & Skulls

Top:: Love Culture blouse - similar here

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I just got this fabulous midi skirt in the mail earlier this week. As promised, I just had to show it off! I've loved midi skirts for the longest time and the bright red color of this one had me swooning at first sight. ASOS has tons of really cute and unique pieces fit for people of all body types. I was lucky enough to get a discount code for the website from a lovely brand ambassador at my alma mater, Rutgers. While I'm not sure if they still have codes, there are always discounts and fantastic sales to be found on the site! Take a look and maybe you can snag a fun new piece for your wardrobe!
