Floral Kimono

Ever since doing a presentation at work featuring Attico's FW16 collection, the robe/kimono been a trend I've been wanting to try. Picking the perfect print was no easy feat, but I finally settled on this sea green beauty. I love the contrast of the green/blue with pops of rosy red flowers.

I realize that this trend may not be for everyone - I wore this to work last week and my boss asked me why I was wearing my bathrobe to the office - ha!

Pairing it with heels helped to elevate the look and make it (in my opinion) work perfect.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far!

Shopbop Sale Picks


Me, doing my happy dance for two reasons:

1. it's Fri-yay!

2. one more day for Shopbop sale - I've already make some good investments and looking forward to purchasing a few additional pieces before midnight tonight! 

See my favorites below:



We are due for some fall-like weather this weekend which means we are in full fall-family-fun mode. What are your plans for the weekend?

Autumn Has Arrived







I finally got my act together this week and began to pull my favorite fall pieces out of storage.

Every season I'm careful to assess what I already have before adding anything new to my closet. Blame it on mommy brain (although admittedly, it was pretty bad before), but somehow after being packed away for a mere six months, I forget so much!

First thing on my agenda was a new belt. I had been lusting over a few expensive ones, but landed this pretty pearly Zara number. It's exactly what I had been looking for - I love a belt that I can wear on my natural waist or with jeans (as seen here).

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Sale Scores







These are the last summer outfit pictures that I snapped for the season and seeing that it's been in the high 70s/low 80s all week, I thought that it was a good time to post. 

I've talked about my Zara sale strategy before, and this dress was another fabulous $15 score. One of my best girlfriends and I go to our local store when sale is just about over and drudge through the leftovers. We always manage to find some hidden gems at rock bottom prices. And although this dress is a bit short for work, it's perfect for our weekend beach getaways.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Rainbow Brite








When I saw this dress online, I was instantly drawn to it. It's no secret that I'm a big fan of color and stripes, and I thought - what better way to send summer off than on a bright note?


Hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend!

Olive Jumpsuit








This jumpsuit might by my favorite piece I've worn all summer. My mama got it to me for Mother's Day, and at the time I questioned how much wear I would get out of it - sooo happy I decided to keep it. 

It's as comfortable as wearing pajamas, but can be dressed up in so many different ways. It's also perfect for an array of summer events (comes in a bright red/orange color too that could definitely be dressed up for a summer wedding).

On sale now for under $80 - click here to get it before it's gone! (runs TTS - wearing a size 2)

I also must mention these fabulous woven slides that were a recent under $8 purchase from Forever 21. I was getting desperately in need of replacement for my favorite tan sandals that are on their last leg. These were the perfect inexpensive option.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Sheer Floral Midi Dress



While this dress is definitely a little fancier than my typical office style, I feel that it's always good to have a romantic number like this one in my closet. 


This see-through dress will be perfect to wear for some events I have coming up early this fall, and I'm sure I'll be wearing it again come spring. The smocking at the waist and cuffs makes it super comfortable - who doesn't love an expandable waistband?!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

To Culotte or Not?

I've always been a huge fan of flare leg pants, and still remember fondly the last time culottes were all the rage (probably sometime in the early 2000s - yes, showing my age right now). So, you can probably imagine how happy I was when they recently made a comeback in full fashion forward force.


I'm not one to wear jeans often during the summer months - too hot and sticky in NJ - but culottes are the perfect pant alternative. If you are on the fence, try a pair and I guarantee you'll become a believer!

Happy Monday!

Redefining Consigning


I had been eyeing up the Gucci disco bag for some time now, but couldn't bring myself to splurge on a bag that wasn't super functional/practical for mom life.

Enter EveryBoutique.com, an online fashion destination site that allows you to search and find those highly sought after pieces from exclusive consignment boutiques across the globe. Yes, you heard that right, you can check the stock from not just one, but hundreds of woldwide luxury consignment boutiques right in one place, basically guaranteeing that you'll find the exact item you are looking for.

Best part is that all of their items are guaranteed authentic. I love eBay, but this definitely eliminates the question of 'am I actually getting the real thing?'.

Happy hump day everyone!

Some snaps from the past couple of weekends. I'm not sure where June and the first half of July went, but I've been having an amazing summer with my little family.

Be sure to follow along with my Instastories to see our summer shenanigans.

Happy hump day!

My floral dress obsession continues...

Seriously, my closet is starting to look like a botanical garden, and I'm not mad at that.

Zaful's selection of floral dresses (especially their embroidered floral dresses) combined with their super affordable pricing makes these botanical beauties too good to pass up!

Be sure to sign up for their 3rd anniversary $100 gift card giveaway HERE and tag my name with your entry. Good luck and happy Monday everyone!

Bells and Scallops






I'm a woman of a few words today as I'm unpacking from a wonderful long weekend away, and already repacking for our next weekend getaway.

I've basically been living in this blouse since I got it (hence it's rumpled, wrinkled appearance - ha!). It's one of those easy pieces that can be dressed up for the office or a night out, or paired with shorts and flat sandals for Saturday errands.

Happy Tuesday everyone - yay for 4-day work weeks!

Weekend Getaway



As mentioned in Monday's post, I'm currently still packing for a long weekend getaway at the beach (or as us New Jerseyans call it, 'down the shore').

This LWD will definitely be coming with me. While you won't see me wearing this short and sweet number to the office, it'll be perfect to throw on for some post-beach cocktails or a cookout with the fam.

Anyone else headed 'down the shore' this weekend?
