TGIF!! I have to admit I drafted this blogpost on Monday with every intention of getting it up and then… life. We have our good friends Jen and Erica wedding in the keys this weekend and I’ve been running like crazy getting everything ready. I’ll admit I still haven’t narrowed down my welcome party outfit 😵.
I wore this outfit last weekend when josh and I saw Kevin Hart standup. I’ve wanted to see him live so many times it just never worked out, until josh surprised me with 2 tickets! If you love laughing until you pee your pants I highly recommend seeing him live!!
I scored these awesome hot pink linen shorts on sale at Ann Taylor. They are on super sale for $29 plus 40% off. Hurry up and snag a pair before they all sell out. I’ve linked them here. These shorts have a ruffle trim on the pockets that you can’t really see in the picture, but add the sweetest detail!
My black lace trim camisole is also from Ann Taylor. It’s silk and super comfortable. Great to wear alone or for layering. My exact cami is sold out but I found one here and a less expensive one from Target (duh) and linked it here.
My wedges are Steve Madden from DSW. I’ve linked them here. DSW is having a crazy sale $10,$20, or $60 off depending on how much you spend with code forthefam! They are on sale for under $40 I’ve linked them here for you. They come in brown too and are super comfy!!
My purse is by free people. It’s from months ago and no longer available but found one similar here and here. Both from Target and under $40!!
My fedora is older but I found a similar one at a great price for you here. Also from Target and only $14.99 (confession I just bought it in white because mine was getting dingy) lol!!
Enjoy the weekend my loves and as always happy shopping!
Happy Saturday friends,
We were rehearsal dinner venue hunting today, and had a successful day of wedding planning!
This awesome romper is on super sale at American Eagle. It’s under $25. I bough this color and the blue!!
The tie back detail on this romper makes it comfortable. You can keep it tight or looser for a casual flow.
Walking our dog is one of my favorite things to do, so I figured why not snap a couple pics before we get ready for the nights festivities! Tonight we’re going to Crystal by Cirque de Solie and I’m so excited. Josh has never been so when he surprised me with tickets for tonight I was pumped!!
You can see Doak’s spot where he had to have staples is healing and the hair is finally growing back over. His little patch doesn’t even seem to bother him. He was such a trooper through the whole thing!!
Hurry up and shop this romper before they’re all sold out. A deal like this, they won’t last long.
I’m sure you guys are aware it’s the Nordstrom anniversary sale… I made the mistake of NOT purchasing what I wanted during presale and now all of what I wanted sold out 😢. I did manage to grab another pair of Spanx faux leather leggings tho! Although this dress is not part of the sale, it’s super affordable and fully in stock!
Summer dresses and straw bags are everything this summer. This dress is a favorite of mine and I know it’s a popular one. It comes in a ton of colors, can be work appropriate and is super comfy!
I love the ruching on the sides to help hide any imperfections. I’ll admit, I’ve been wearing this dress on repeat; currently wearing it with a long cardigan at work!
This straw bag I got last summer at Target and it’s great, but no longer available. Zipper closure makes it easy for beach, or summer travel. I use it as my daily tote on some days. I found a similar one at Gap for only $24!
My sandals were part of my favorites round up last week and are still my go to summer sandal!!
Happy shopping friends!
This awesome jumpsuit is only $54 from Vici Collection. They have quickly become my fave online retailer. They have the cutest stuff, reasonable priced, and easy shipping and returns. They feature 20% of codes on IG all the time! I posted about them in my Skort life… post. I’m wearing a small and notice that their items runs TTS and their sizing calculator is very accurate.
There’s nothing I love more than a good jumpsuit… The idea of putting on one thing and having a whole outfit is effortless. The back on this is open and very flattering. Can’t wait to wear this to brunch or another summer event (yes, I’m willing to repeat a good outfit if I’m not seeing the same people, lol).
Let me start by saying my swimsuit obsession runs deep. I always use the “I live in FL” excuse for buying a ton of swimsuits each summer, but honestly it’s just because they’re fun and in my opinion you can never have too many. Swimsuits for me go with my mood… and I think there’s a different suit for different occasions.
I was fortunate to attend a couple shows during swim week and I made a highlight of my favorites and wanted to share them here with you!
Akosha is a designer I haven’t seen before based out of Ft. Lauderdale and handmade in Miami. The suits were fun, playful, and sexy. They don’t offer too many on sale, but the fun flamingo one piece is available and under $200.
Another great designer is Paramidonna
I really loved the color blocking black and white suit and the subtle details of the ruffles on the suits. I love that high waisted are on trend right now. Paramidonna offered a couple high waisted options.
And now for my absolute favorite…
I’ve loved Ali’s designs since she was making them and selling out of her apartment . I knew they’d be all the rage. She uses great patters and high quality fabric! Montce brings versatile style to swim wear. High waisted, crop top, one piece, ruffles, and extra cheeky!! The suits are always sexy, but in a classy way.
You can find fun accessories including kimonos, jewelry, and fun beach wear. There are two locations one in ft. Lauderdale and another in LA. If you don’t live close don’t worry, all suits are available online!!
I can’t wait to pick up some new suits before the summers end!
Anyone in the Ft. Lauderdale area interested in help picking out some suits at Montce I’d be happy to meet you at the shop for personal shopping assistance!!
It’s Saturday and it feels so good!! Currently still in my PJ’s sipping a matcha latte browsing some online sales! The day is off to a great start… I’ve rounded up this week IG faves for you.
This Hermes perfume is my favorite. I got it for Christmas and constantly get compliments when I wear it. It has a subtle tuberose scent which is clean and floral. It lasts allllllll day! It also helps that the bottle is beautiful and looks great on my dresser to display!
Okay, I am the first to say I don’t really drink coffee. I am sensitive to the caffeine so I am typically a tea girl, but I love the taste of coffee. Go figure. We got a Nespresso machine a while back because Josh was doing two a day Starbucks runs and I freaked. LOL. One day while at the Nespresso Cafe in Bloomingdale’s I tried their decaf and was hooked. I like to have a cup on the weekends and will have either the decaf espresso or coffee. OUr machine is an older version but I found a similar one that features both coffee and espresso pods on sale for an incredible price here. We have the milk frother and I use it all the time. It’s fun to make lattes and fancy cups right from home. The best part each cup costs only $1.10!!
The picture does not do this yummy meal justice. I’ll admit I really need to work on my food photography, but man was this Stuffed Eggplant Parm phenomenal. Even Josh agreed! I love traditional eggplant parm, but with the breading and frying those calories add up. That’s why I’m so happy Skinny Taste featured this recipe! I used traditional eggplant and spicy chicken sausage from whole foods and it was great. Don’t forget to puncture the eggplant otherwise it will get watery, I made this mistake. Whoops!
This awesome knot front dress was featured this week on the blog and I wanted to share a roundup of some more of my fave quick summer dresses I found.
Here are some links all under $50!
Target Asymmetric Dress
American Eagle shift dress
Abercrombie Midi Cotton Dress
Nordstrom summer dress
Happy Shopping Friends!!
Man, today got the best of me. I’ve been frantically calling restaurants to try and get something locked down for our rehearsal dinner and as of now, no luck! 😦 Got some more calls to do, but decided to take a fun break and get this awesome dress up on the blog.
I can’t say enough how much I love this dress. It’s flattering with the tie front knot and great for summer! It’s great for work and after… I have to admit I’ve already worn it to work, a happy hour, and lunch with friends! Its funny, I have a tendency to gravitate to the same 3 things when I like them.
This dress is super affordable right now and selling out fast! It’s under $15 on super clearance from Abercrombie so shop it fast! The Knot front dress runs TTS and washes well.
It comes in three colors, I have to confess I just ordered it again in the olive green too.
Linked again here
I wore chunky lace-up heels here, but have worn this with some fun Adidas throwback sneaks which also looked cute! You can have a lot of fun with this look.
Enjoy your Tuesday and as always… happy shopping.
