6 Mother's Day Brunch Outfit Ideas

06 May 2016

First of all, how is it even May already? Let alone Mother's Day, this weekend. I actually have no idea what we're doing this year but I'm sure I'll be perfectly happy doing whatever as long as 1. the weather goes back to normal {ie: the sun comes out} and 2. I get to wear this amazing romper from Akira. This romper guys, it's great, right? We already know that I'm a sucker for a good playsuit, long or short but this one might just take the cake. Fabulous print? Check! Floaty silhouette? Nailed it! The only thing it's really missing is pockets, but I'm willing to let it slide. I'm also kind of into the backless detail and adjustable tie waist. Wear it loose or cinched - your choice. I'm down with leaving it loose and free for a swing-esque shape, plus it leaves plenty of room for a massive brunch. Which brings to me to this week's #styled6ways theme, Mother's Day Brunch style! Akira was kind enough to send us each a look to help us celebrate our moms (and/or being a mom in Tiffany and I's case, Kacie, you too!). 

I personally can't help but think that my romper's best accessory is my fresh {fiery} color courtesy of David at FourteenJay. I had the best time spending the afternoon with him and the FourteenJay team yesterday. Honestly, 3 hours well spent. In NYC? You have to check them out.

5 #tbt Favorites That You Can Still Shop

05 May 2016

I'm all for wearing the same piece more than once. Hell, I insist on it. You know, to keep the cost per wear down. More often than not I end up loving the piece and wear the heck out of it, regardless of the season I purchased it in. Naturally, someone shows interest and I have to reveal it's no longer available, ugh. But, after noticing my little white dress from last year was very much still in stock I went back and checked on some of my favorite pieces for this week's Throwback Thursday post and found that most of them were still very much available, woohoo! Here are 5 pieces to rock from now through summer and even Fall. And as always, they're under $60, because that's how I do...





3 Summer Style Essential Under $20

04 May 2016

Now that I'm officially back from vacation it's time to start getting my summer closet in order. 
First up, shopping! When it comes to picking out fresh duds I tend to steer towards the same types of pieces: flowing dresses, bold prints, and some sort of color. I usually don't give anything else a second look. Which is why when Marshalls challenged me to shop some Summer essentials and open myself to new possibilities while doing so, I had to say yes. Sometimes you just have to break out of that same ol' system of buying the same types of pieces over and over again. So, I headed in-store and scoured the racks for something 'new'. Their current offerings are amazing, I couldn't believe how much of the on-trend style essentials were on the floor. They had so much stuff. Hello, off-the-shoulder dresses and top, TONS of denim, and stylish sandals galore. After a few trips to the dressing room I decided on these three pieces to kick up my summer style and without spending over $20 apiece. Success. 

My favorite and most surprisingly find? I think it might just be the round crossbody, it was such a great statement piece hiding in the handbags. Naturally it was the last one so I didn't let it out of my site until because it was such a steal at under $20. How cute are these details {It's kind of Rebecca Minkoff esque, right?}? Plus, it fits EVERYTHING. My most unexpected piece? Definitely the cut off chambray top. It was a last minute grab before hitting the dressing room and it ended up being the first "definitely" coming home with me. The blue off the shoulder dress was such a lucky find, I found it wedged in the rack and scooped it up immediately. No summer closet is complete without an off the shoulder dress, especially when it's $17 and has these adorable pom details!

 I'm challenging you to change things up by teaming up with Marshalls to give one lucky winner $100 to spend on updating their look from Marshalls. Enter below! 

Check out my three finds under $20...

1. Round Crossbody, $19.99

2. Chambray "Cut Off" Top, $12.99

3. Off The Shoulder Dress, $16.99

Boho Maxi Style

02 May 2016

Vacation may be over and I'm back in the Big Apple to kick off Monday but that's not going to stop me from keeping up with the relaxed vibes in this maxi dress. If there's one piece that I can always count on for ease, it's the maxi. I'm particularly loving this print with the extra pop of bohemian from the fringe bag, silk scarf and belt. It might just be the best way to get back in the groove after a 15 hour drive home from the mountains. Well, that and A LOT of coffee and pancakes.

Little White Dress

29 April 2016

Though this week initially reserved for vacation only, I did have the chance to sneak in a fews pictures of a couple of my outfits over the week here in North Carolina. While, most of my wardrobe has been reserved for hiking and exploring I did manage to bring a couple of pieces that took me from lounging to dinner. I wanted to keep it simple so I grabbed one of the easiest spring pieces to wear: the little white dress. It goes with everything and is easily dressed up or dressed down. I chose to wear mine this time around with a vintage scarf, leather jacket and white sneakers to keep things laid back - no heels here this week. I found this amazing basket purse as my grandparents this week and knew it had to come home with me. It has been my exclusive tote for the week and could not have been a more perfect pairing with the look. Spring Must Haves: French Market Tote/Basket, Silk Scarf, Little White Dress.
