The Perfect Evening Out Dress

April 9, 2018

Dress Missguided |Shoes Aldo, Similar Style Aldo | Earrings Baublebar Sold Out, Similar Style BaubleBar

I had a lot of messages about this dress I posted on my insta story over the weekend. A few months ago, I had bought this dress and it is still in stock.

This dress has all the elements for the perfect dress for an evening out. The emerald green color is gorgeous. It is sexy but not over the top, and the slit in the front makes it easy to walk in. It has a tie neck and an open back. The v-neck in the front is not to low. Also when I am going to an event like this where we are going to be eating a few courses, I love when the dress is not that fitted so that I am not having to suck it in all night lol.

This dress is so versatile and can be worn this time of year even though it has long sleeves because it is really light weight. It would be beautiful during the holiday time and cooler months with over the knee black boots and a leather jacket for a more laid back look.

Summer Guest at a Wedding

Happy Monday Babes!!

Dress Asos, no longer available |Earrings Nordstrom come in other colors | Shoes Aldo sold out Similar style HERE

Growing up, I would always buy a new outfit for every occasion. My dad would always say, "You don't need a new dress or shirt everytime you go somewhere"  and "When you're older and spending your own money, you won't be able to do that every time." Well, nothing has really changed and now with social media and pictures being taken at every single function from a wedding to grocery shopping, you rarely see people wearing the same outfit twice. Now don't get me wrong, I have favorite pieces that I wear on repeat but for special nights out, I usually buy something new. Sorry Dad!!

I am usually a last minute person when it comes to getting something to wear. I mean, I knew this wedding was coming over a year ago, and I still went to order something like three days before the wedding. When I realized what I wanted wasn't avalable in my size, I frantically ran to the mall the day before the big day, and found nothing. So I got home rummaged my closet and remembered this off the shoulder peach dress I had bought last year from Asos. I had actually worn it twice already, my father would be so proud lol, and decided to have it make an appearance again. I bought these really pretty tassel earrings from Baublebar which at the moment, I'm currently obsessing over like 5 pairs of their tassel earrings. 

The wedding was so beautiful and so much fun. My family are big partiers, and we danced the whole night! Check out my Summer picks for a guest at a wedding!

My Sister’s Baby Shower

June 5, 2017

My Dress Missguided $72 | Danielle's Dress (Maternity) Asos | (Non-maternity option) Asos

Cake and Cake Pops Giovanni's Bakery |Seating Chart Etsy | Flowers Wild Orchid

Yesterday was my sister Danielle's Baby Shower! Eeek I'm going to be an Auntie! It was so special to be able to share a day like this with all our family and friends to celebrate Danielle and baby Fiona. The shower was at Salute in Hartford, Connecticut, surrounded by touches of white and pink decorations, good food, and the sweetest, baby girl gifts.

We shopped for a dress for her to wear last time we were in New York.  Danielle had origonally thought she would go with a flowy maxi dress but after much convincing/begging on my side, she tried on a fitted dress and she looked amazing. Let's face it, dressing your ever growing baby bump can be difficult, and I think that so many women go through the same feeling when they are pregnant. You want to feel beautiful and comfortable, confident and stylish. My sister looked absolutely gorgeous in this fitted, cold shoulder dress from Asos.  Her dress comes in a maternity and in a non -maternity style.  She ended up wearing the non- maternity dress, 

I cannot wait to meet and spoil this little princess!!
