Necklace: J.Crew/ Dress: Nordstrom/ Cardigan: J.Crew

     Bejeweled. Be-jeweled. Be Jeweled. Featuring one my most favorite J.Crew necklaces today! These Austrian crystals designed into a floral statement necklace are so beautiful, these pictures don’t even do this necklace justice! The variety of jewel tone colors make it fun and easy to pair with almost any outfit. There are many knock offs and variations of this necklace but I think that the original is definitely worth the money and the very best!

     Anyone who knows me well can tell you that I take very good care of my clothes. I like my really great designer pieces to be in garment bags, most of my shoes kept in their original boxes, when in doubt I choose to dry clean a piece I’m  unsure about etc. When I buy a piece of clothing, whether it’s $30 or $300, I want to treat it nicely and have it for a long time. That being said when you are careful and take good care of your pieces you can keep them for a really long time! Take this dress for example. I love love love the floral and stripe combination plus the way you can tie a bow in the back or in the front and the fun ruffles on the top. I snagged this cute little number at Forever 21 about 6 years ago! Isn’t that kind of crazy?! It’s in great shape and I really enjoy pairing it with leggings, boots and a coat in the fall/winter and with fun sandals or wedges and bare legs in the spring/summer. So clothing lesson of the day…take good care of your clothing and shoes/bags/jewelry/sunglasses so they have a nice long life in your closet and on your body :)!

Love Is In The Air

Canvas: Francesca’s 

     I went shopping in the city this weekend with one of my good friends and found a few cute items on our shopping excursion. My most favorite is actually not a clothing item (or shoes or bag) but this canvas print stating, “Love Is In The Air” in a metallic gold font. I love Paris, and the Eiffel Tower, so right when I saw this cute wall art piece I wanted it! I was actually purchasing a top when I spotted this piece and the woman ringing me up chuckled when I asked to see it up close since she disclosed that she had just hung it up less than a hour ago and it was brand new. I guess it was meant to be :)!

     Today is the birthday of one of my most favorite humans…my sister Melisa, who has a sparkle in her step and smile :)! She is a phenomenal woman who is extremely stylish, hard-working, classy, intelligent, fun, athletic, creative, caring and passionate (just to name a few of her fab attributes)! She is the best sister in the whole universe and has taught me so much! I am extremely lucky to have her in my life as my best friend, sister and role model…also she’s basically a model! Be sure to check out her awesome fashion & lifestyle blog Sparkle In Your Step!

Happy Birthday Mel, you deserve only the best!! Here’s to a fabulous birthday and year ahead!!! Love you so very much!!!

     Lounging by the pool and taking a dip on a hot summer’s day is one of the best things ever! It’s very relaxing and fun. Add my fam and friends, a cute pup named Penny, some refreshing drinks and snacks and I seroiusly can hang out here all day!

Top & Skirt Pants: Zara/ Bandana: Target/ Sunglasses: Prada/ Heels: J.Crew/ Bag: Chelsea Market (NYC)/ Rings: Tiffany & Co., Ireland, Forever21, Custom/ Bracelet: Tiffany & Co./ Lips: MAC ‘Russian Red’

     Here is my (belated) 4th of July look!!! I recently took out these skirt pants that I got last summer at Zara which are super comfy, fun and very Euro! They’re an illusion piece (and basically a long version of a skort) because from the front it looks like a long maxi skirt but from the back you can tell they’re actually pants! Boom a wonderful 2 in 1 option for anyone who can’t decide if they’d rather wear a skirt or pants…now you can wear both :)!
