Always a Dress Girl
Shop: Dress | Earrings | Sunglasses | Watch | Booties | Lipstick
I think that dresses are the most easiest and stylish piece of attire that any woman can wear. An all in one outfit with no stress of finding coordinating individual clothing that comes together to make a full look. This dress is one of my favorites and it is no surprise that it is animal print. I like the thicker material that it is constructed with, which makes it great for Fall. I bought this dress at a local boutique (Work the Metal), but have linked similar ones below. I paired it with black booties, a black leather cross body, added some color with my sunnies and these cute earrings.

Guess Who’s Back
Motivated in Brooklyn
Last week I was living my NYC dreams. This city is by far one of my favorites. I always get the sense opportunities are endless there. As I looked out at the vast cityscape and the Brooklyn Bridge it excites me! The energy is there and the motivation is there. It reminds me to not sit on my dreams and help others to reach their’s too.
The day was perfect for this bright yellow Zaful off the shoulder dress. It is airy, light and comfortable. Definitely size up because it runs small. I accessorized with a dual tone tassel necklace, navy espadrille flats, and merlot color lipstick. This outfit is perfect for the hot summer weather.

Bachelorette Party Dress
Next month I am preparing to head to my bachelorette party in one of my favorite cities, NYC, with a few of my best girls. I wanted to do something a little different. I have been to Vegas multiple times and knew I didn’t want to go there. I am not a huge beach person, so Miami was out of the question (not because I don’t like water or sand, but because I am allergic to the sun, which is a pain). I am a city girl and what is one of the the best cities in the world? NYC of course!
In anticipation of this upcoming weekend I am already planning out outfits to wear. The first one is this sequins dress, which is perfect for the party, and that is when I attend to wear it. This will be my going out dress. Comfortable, a statement in itself; it is a great dress for a night out on the town with the girls. I paired it with sliver heels and a red lip to give a little pop of color. Looking forward to sharing more of my NYC looks. Shop this one below!

White Dresses for Bridal Shower
If you are a bride you have to prepare yourself for all the bridal showers heading your way. It is an exciting time to say the least, but what do you wear? White of course! You definitely have to stand out as the bride. So let me suggest a dress. Right now is the perfect time to find one. This season there are so many stylish dresses. You should definitely stock up for the the multiple showers, bachelorette party, and rehearsal dinner.
The dress I have on in this post (which I have had for awhile) is perfect for a bridal shower. It is sleek, two-tone (but mostly white), and the perfect length. I added some color with this turquoise necklace and brick color lipstick and a bit of pattern with leopard heels. I finished the outfit with a taupe clutch, which with be on rotation all summer.

Picking the Perfect Dress w/ Modern Trousseau
You always have to cheers when you find the dress!
The Perfect Belt
Perfect outfit, perfect belt! I can truly say accessories can make an outfit pop. This geometric fitted dress is great on its own, but when you add a belt with a legacy letter buckle (A for Alli of course) to compliment it, it pulls the whole thing together. I mean who doesn’t want their initials on their belt? (Find your legacy letter here). Further accessorizing this outfit was my main goal, as you can tell. Patterned tights with over the knee boots accented the entire ensemble. A cross body and a tassel necklace to complete it. What is your go to accessory? Shop mine below.
Coming In Hot!!
With this weather, who doesn’t need a faux fur coat?? I mean it is perfect! This coat is from Baciano, if you have not checked them out, you should! They have some stylish on trend pieces for everyone, from dresses to jackets to sweater. This faux fur coat looks great with almost anything. I paired it here with a black Agnes & Dora dress and tan knee boots. Let’s not forget the accessories, which can make any outfit. Sunglasses, earrings (that give a pop of color), and a clutch that compliments the necklace perfectly (which was a gift from my future mother in law, all the way from Australia). How would you wear a faux fur coat?
Geometrics and Graffiti in Melbourne
Graffiti….one of the best back drops for a photo, especially for a blogger. These works of art are all over the lane ways in Melbourne, Australia. You can find this one outside of Spice Market, a great place to grab a drink if you are in town. The decor is enough to make you want to stop in.
