Guess Who’s Back

Guess who’s back, back again! I took a quick break from blogging to do some wedding and other business stuff but now I am back. The wedding is two weeks from today and I feel pretty calm about it, but ask me how I am doing in a week, lol! Anyway, fall is among us. Actually the first day of fall is my wedding day. So how are you transitioning to fall like weather? Me, with cute dresses and booties of course! Like in this outfit, it is perfect for those still warm afternoons and even cooler mornings and evenings. Booties are probably one of my favorite things about colder weather. I plan to add some new ones to my shoe closet this season, so stay tuned! What are you looking forward to this fall?

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?

Every Girl Needs A Skirt

Every girl needs a good skirt for summer. One that they can dress up or wear with casual pieces. I found my summer skirt, this light and airy blue is super comfortable. I paired it with a simple v-neck tee and accessorized it with a lot of jewelry. I love a statement necklace and I think this purple agate one, which I designed and put together myself, goes great with this outfit and gives it a pop of color.   I added my favorite leopard clutch to give the pieces some texture. Finished the look with mirror sunnies and a pair of tan flats.

Island Time

Who doesn’t love Island Time?? Meaning there is no time….wake up organically and accomplish tasks when it fits into you schedule. Sounds like the perfect life (or in my case a vacation to the Bahamas) to me! So what do you wear when you are on island time?  While you are exploring you want to be comfortable yet stylish. So I opted for a tee shirt dress, boat shoes, and a straw hat. Which are also easy to pack in your suitcase. I finished the outfit with sunnies (which are a must in the Bahamas) and a straw bag to carry all my touristy things, like sunscreen and a camera. What is your favorite outfit to explore the island? Shop mine below.

Summer style is in full effect! Tanks on Tanks on Tanks….is the way to go for summer. Tanks are easy and go great with shorts, skirts and denim jeans like I wore in this outfit. You can dress up a tank  with the right accessories. I chose to style mine with a designer cross body, a dual color pom pom necklace, and a pair of multicolor shades to finish the outfit. How do you dress up your tank? Shop my look below.

Summer Time

Whose ready for summer? Since Yesterday was the first day of summer I thought it would be fitting to break out the bright colors. I am all about the bolds for warm temperatures. Like this bold short sleeved shirt I wore to transition to hot and humid weather. I paired it with jeans, flat sandals, and a tote. I finished the outfit with black sunglasses and some arm candy (bracelet, watch). What is your favorite summer outfit?

Take Me Back to Sydney

Shop Summer Dresses:  One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight 

Seriously take me back to Sydney! Which is a city in New South Wales, Australia. Sunny skies and great views, who would not want to visit?  There are many attractions and picturesque scenery to keep you busy while you are there. Definite must: The Sydney Harbour Bridge, if you are adventurous you can climb the bridge or if you like to keep your feet planted on the ground you can walk, cycle or drive over it. Another must is Australia’s iconic Sydney Opera House. Located close to the harbour of Circular Quay. You need to see this majestic site for yourself. While you are there have a cocktail at the Opera Bar . If shopping is your thing take a stroll thru The Rocks, an urban distinct that is full of artist, shops, and restaurants; where you will find anything for aboriginal art, to homemade soaps, paintings, and t-shirts.
One thing I love about Sydney is that they use their waterways to their fullest ability, whether it’s to sail, taking the ferry to work or home, or to dock a huge cruise ship. There are always boats in the water. While you are there make sure to visit Darling Harbour, Sydney’s largest recreational and pedestrian precinct, the Royal Botanic Garden, and Bondi Beach if surfing is your thing. There are many amazing places to visit in Sydney so if you ever get the opportunity take it. 
Where is your next adventure? Stay tuned for mine!

A Day at Churchill Downs with the Whisky Chicks and Brown Forman

 
                                Shop Hats: One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven
A Day at the races is no day at the races without the Whisky Chicks and Brown Forman! The weather was perfect at Churchill Downs, which is one of the most famous horse tracks, stemming from the long tradition of the running of the Kentucky Derby.  The atmosphere was great for betting and dabbling in a couple of spirits. Completed by a view from the Brown Forman Suite. The Brown Forman Corporation is one of the largest American spirits and wine companies. Their brands can be found in over 160 countries, which include Woodford Reserve, Old Forester and Jack Daniel’s.

This was all organized for Mother’s Day by the Whisky Chicks. If you do not know who the Whisky Chicks are then you should! It is an organization that allows women of all ages (21+) to come together to embrace the unique taste’s of whiskey. They pride themselves on being libation liberators; meaning they help women appreciate and love cocktails that are outside of their standard norm. They are whisky educators promoting knowledge of a drink that is rich in Kentucky history, and friend facilitators allowing others to meet and form lasting friendships. This Mother’s Day Event was truly wonderful for all who attended.

Charitable Giving w/ Diff Eyewear

Who loves a good pair of sunglasses? I do! Especially when they have a purpose. Diff Eyewear  is a company that provides reading glasses to people in need, meaning that every pair of sunglasses that is  purchased by you or someone else allows a child or adult to see clearly. How is that for a stylish piece to add to your collection? These Cruz frames are some of my personal favorites, they can be found here. Diff Eyewear has a variety of frames to choose from and they would make a great gift for someone special for the holidays. What are your favorite Diff frames?
