Stuck in Summer





Kate Spade Dress// J.Crew Slides similar here// Crossbody// Aviators

OH how it feels good to be back on the blog!  I’ve been MIA for too long!  I’m also super late on posting these pics as they were taken earlier this summer.  I recently moved to my happy place… Arizona, so things have been a little crazy lately getting situated and back into a routine, etc.  Since moving to Arizona, it’s been HOT.  It’s finally starting to get into the 80’s and 90’s which is a major relief compared to the 100+ degree weather we had all summer long.  Although I’m late with this post, I still feel like this outfit applies out in this desert heat.  I will confess it’s hard seeing all the fall boots, sweaters and jackets everyone is wearing right now though.   There are definitely days I just want to wear those cozy fall outfits, but I know I will love the mild temps here in the winter and no SNOW!   I’ll get my fix when I”m back for the holidays I’m sure. ;)  Anyway’s I practically lived in dresses and still live in dresses here.  They are super easy to just throw on.  I like this casual one – you can easily dress it up or dress it down while still looking effortlessly chic – and who doesn’t love stripes?!  :)

For fall in the desert, I plan on mixing in little fall touches here and there, such as shorts with long sleeved shirts in lighter materials, dresses with booties, etc. and of course lots and lots of neutrals … grey, tan, taupe, black and white <3.

Red Crush








Puffer Coat/Top/Pants – Athleta // Boots – Hunter Boots // Sunglasses – Ray-Ban

Happy New Year!  With the new year, comes the cold and SNOW!  Perfect weather to bring out those Hunter Boots and Puffer Coats!  As much as I love neutrals, I love some bright color in the winter to bring some cheer to some otherwise, gloomy days and I’m loving pops of RED.  :)  My go to neutral lately has been GREY, if you couldn’t tell ;).  Thanks to my mom for snapping these photos while I was back home during the holidays.   It was nice to be back home and have some much needed down time with family and friends.  And of course, I LOVE my Teddy Bear and miss him dearly.  I think these pics capture just that and how excited we were to spend some quality time together again. :)  Not to mention – we like to match.  Oh how I need a dog!

As alway’s, thank you for following!  <3

Fall Moto Style












Faux Leather Jacket and Scarf//Zara  Sweater and Jeans//H&M   Boots//Chinese Laundry  Crossbody//Louis Vuitton  Hat//H&M also love this one

Happy Sunday!  Today’s post is another outfit worn while in NYC while my mom and I had a shopping day!  Shopping in NYC is heaven (needless to say).  We were both exhausted by the end of this day as we were up at the crack of dawn at 5:30am to go check out Good Morning America but it was well worth it.   I seriously see why they call it the city that never sleeps!   There is just so much to do and so little time.  :)

About the outfit – This faux leather jacket and scarf I found at Zara there are my new faves!   I actually planned on bringing a leather jacket with me that I had ordered online prior to this trip but it didn’t come soon enough, SO i ended up having to purchase one while in NYC.   Darn.  :)  I wasn’t too mad about it since I found one I like even better.  This jacket is my new fave and I’ve worn it non-stop since!

I’m also loving hats this fall!  I think it added a bit of classic to an otherwise edgier outfit.  I actually threw the hat on since there was no time for washing my hair before going to GMA.  :)  You’ve got to love hats for times like those.

What are your thoughts on fall hats?

As alway’s, thanks for reading!

Casual Stripes and Leather














Comfy shoes were crucial for all the walking we did in NYC!!  I did change into some boots later in the day for an event though. :)

Hi everyone!  I wanted to post one of the days from when my family and I were in NYC last week.   After all, what better place to take blog pictures than this lovely city!  Everywhere you turn is an aesthetically pleasing view whether it be the architecture, culture or overall ambiance of the city that never sleeps!  (Thanks to my wonderful mom for taking all these pics!!)  We went sight seeing during the day, which included the Brooklyn Bridge where there are absolutely amazing views of Manhattan (seen in the pics above)- truly breathtaking!  The weekend we were there also happened to be the weekend that Simply Stylist was having their event in New York.  Once I found out this was going on the same weekend I jumped all over it.  For those of you that don’t know what Simply Stylist is, it’s a networking event that brings together like minded people that love the fashion and beauty industry!  Such a cool concept.  I wish I had the time to go to some of the panels, but it was just neat to go around to the different booths and meet some entreprenuers and marketing professionals in the fashion and beauty industry as well as some fellow bloggers.

I just LOVE this city and can’t wait to go back!  More outfit posts to come from my trip to NYC on the blog soon.  <3

Insta Style Lately



Loving cocoon sweaters and booties for fall. <3




I love a good striped shirt always and forever!  I paired this Heidi Merrick Nordstrom Rack one with these Steve Madden leopard flats similar here.  Love mixing patterns.




You can never go wrong with a black and white dress (similar here) and nude heels- great for work!  I also love mixing metals and I’m always wearing this Lagos Caviar bracelet!



Love hats for fall and the color camel is a must for the fall season.   Head to toe H&M.  They have a great selection of sweaters and fall accessories!


Another light weight cocoon sweater – great for layering, even on warmer fall days when you need a little something over those shoulders!  Love this one from Nordstrom.



Although it’s getting too cold to wear an outfit like this one now, I thought I’d add it in anyways!  Got to love a good graphic tee with a little french phrase and boyfriend shorts or jeans now.



You might need to throw a trench coat or leather jacket on with it now, but you can never to wrong with a LBD.  This is a work staple for me!  What’s even better is it was $20 at Nordstrom Rack this summer!  Such a great find. :)

Hi all! It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’ve missed it!  Hopefully I will get back to posting regularly again sooner than later!  Today I wanted to share some of my fave instagram posts as of lately!  Trending here you will see a LOT of neutrals!  I always like wearing neutrals but for fall I’ve been loving them even more it seems!  There is just something so classically chic about them.  They are timeless!  Best to invest in some good neutral pieces as they are bound to be around a lot longer.  :)

What are your favorite fall trends right now and what are some of your favorite ‘timeless’ neutrals?  Please do share.  :)

Thanks for reading!

End of Summer Style







Graphic Tee// J.Crew Outlet  Shorts//Rag & Bone via Nordstrom Rack similar here  Sandals//H&M  Bag//Rebecca Minkoff  Sunglasses//Ray-Ban

Jewelry//similar here Kate Spade

Hello all!!  It’s been a while since I’ve posted – mainly due to the fact I moved and no longer have my wonderful greatly missed photographer.  :(  Thank goodness my mother is able to take photos when I’m in town every once in a while.  Anyway!  Let’s get to the outfit.  I took these photos a couple weeks ago while I was back in town over the long Labor Day weekend.  It’s getting a bit too chilly here for shorts now as summer is coming to an end.  I will miss it, but am ready for all the fun Fall fashion!  Alway’s a good season for fashion.  As you all know by now, I’m very in to graphic tees and was excited when I found a couple at the J.Crew Outlet a while back (this New York one as well as one that say’s C’est La Vie – my fave!)  I found these very comfy Rag & Bone boyfriend shorts and Rebecca Minkoff cross-body recently at Nordstrom Rack and are two of some of my favorite pieces.  I’ve worn the shorts a ton this last month and the cross-body is a perfect universal piece that can be worn all seasons but I love the color for Fall.  I’m extremely into neutrals as usual but for Fall I’m loving grey, camel, blush and pastels!  What are you most excited to wear this Fall?
