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.

Cheeky

Shop: Jacket | Dress | Necklace (one, two) | Handbag | Booties | Lipstick | Watch

I am always a bit cheeky! Isn’t everybody? Well in this outfit I feel like I can get away with it! I love dress and bootie season. And since this week started to feel like fall this outfit was perfect to showcase. I styled a brightly colored dress with black suede booties, a two toned fitted jacket, and a exaggerated statement necklace. All the textures and colors mixed together is what made me fall in love with fashion and personal style. I finished the look with a cross-body with gold trim and a red lip. This is probably my favorite fall look thus far and I feel like I can wear it anywhere.

Pink

Simple but stylish is the look I was going for with this outfit. The look is easy to recreate with items you already have in your closet.  I paired skinny jeans, found here, with a pink cable knit sweater (similar). I accented the outfit with a two-toned scarf, a beige clutch and tan boots with heels.  I further accessorized with tassel earrings and a pair of Ray Bans. The sunglasses are from Shop Ditto, a company where you can try sunglasses and reading glasses before you buy them. Use code: ABSOLUTELYALLI for a free month.

Polk-A-Dot

Happy Saturday ! How was your week? Mine was good but I wish it actually felt like Spring not like Fall. Ugh! This is why I am day dreaming about still being in the Palm Desert, where I shot this look below. The Palm Desert is beautiful. If you have never been you should definitely put it on you bucket list, but just not in the dead of summer because it gets hot. Real Hot!
This look is one of my favorites.  It was great to roam to the shops of El Paseo, the Rodeo Dr. of the Palm Desert. I wore white denim skinny jeans (found here) and paired it with a button up polk a dot shirt (similar here and here). I accessorized the outfit with Kendra Scott Jewelry (earrings here, necklace here), a leopard belt that I think goes with everything (here), this hunter green cross body (similar here and here), and these tan sandals that are sure to be on rotation all summer (here). I am such a fan of mixing patterns such a I did with the polk a dots and leopard because it adds a little personal style to an outfit. The watch I am wearing is from Wristology, website here. They have great watches for women. All different styles and colors. Use code: AA20 for 20% off and free shipping. Also, if you are in the Palm Desert Area and looking for a great photographer check out Erica Mendenhall Photography (website here). Shop my look below.  Hope you enjoy!

NYE

It is almost NYE. Have you picked out your outfit? Have you finalized plans? I don’t do something every NYE but every once and awhile I like to get all dolled up and go out.

This year my boyfriend and I are going to Chicago for his birthday and for NYE. Although it will be cold it should be a good time. I love an opportunity to get all dress up for an occasion, so I picked an outfit that was fitting for that. A silver sequins dress paired with a black velvet blazer and booties. I accessorized it with pink lipstick, a pink clutch and a pink necklace I made myself. I also added silver earrings and a ring with an aquamarine stone (my birthstone). I have to say this is one of my favorite looks and I will have to find somewhere else to wear this after NYE. Shop my look below. Have a happy and safe NYE! Hope you enjoy!

Uniqlo Lifewear

Happy Wednesday! My boyfriend calls this look casual Alli, so I will go with it. I am a casual girl that likes to get dolled up sometimes. What is better than jeans and a down vest for fall? Uniqlo has mastered the casual look with their Lifewear collection.

These quality made clothes fit true to size. They are soft, comfortable and are made to be worn all day. My favorites of the collect are the women’s ultra stretch skinny fit jeans and the ultra light down vest (which I am wearing below). Since the jeans are ultra stretch they fit you in all the right places and move with your body. What’s your favorite fall outfit? I have linked all details below. Hope you enjoy!

Blanket Scarfs Season

It’s blanket scarf season. Who else is as excited as I am? Blanket scarfs serve many purposes.

One being as an accessory to take you fall or winter outfit to the next level. The second reason is to keep you warm during those freezing temperatures. So you can never have to many, right? Below I have linked some affordable blanket scarfs. Like most things these can get pretty pricey. Most of the ones below are under $30. These scarfs sell out pretty quick so if you see one you like you better snag it. Hope you enjoy!

Sheinside

I’m definitely a lover of lace and this coffee long sleeve hollow lace chiffon top from Sheinside is my favorite.

 I paired it with some cropped skinnies and leopard flats to give the outfit a little flair. It’s perfect for social functions with friends or even date night. You can find the exact top here, which is 35% off right now. I have linked similar pieces from this outfit below. Hope you enjoy!

Beginning of Fall Fashion

Even though we still have a couple of hot and humid days among us, I could not wait for chilly temps to break out the boots (or booties).
I love this time of year because I can pair clothing from all seasons together to make an outfit. I wore the outfit below to a friend’s baby shower this past weekend. The jean jacket and tank are casual but when paired with this pleated skirt it makes the outfit a little more fancy. I love combining casual pieces with things that are a little more dressy because it takes your outfit to the next level. These pieces together are perfect for small social gatherings with friends. Check out outfit details below. Hope you enjoy!
