W A T C H out for Marc Jacobs

 

IMG_6343

Hello Fashionistas! I just wanted to share with you another amazing find that I came across during the Macy’s Friends & Family Sale earlier this year. (PS although the sale is over, I believe the next one occurs in the Fall at some point, so keep an eye out for that!). I was in dire need of a gold watch and since I’ve been wearing gold accents a lotttt lately, I figured that a gold watch would suit my style fabulously. I heard about the Friends & Family sale going on at Macy’s and naturally started browsing. I stumbled across this Marc by Marc Jacobs watch that i fell in LOVE with. BTW, originally $200 and I paid $150! Not too shabby. Considering I was going to purchase a gold watch regardless, I thought…why not buy it now and save $50?! That’s huge. That’s a tank of gas, or two!

 If you are in the market for a gold watch, or any watch for that matter, I would suggest probing your local department stores for some awesome coupons or seasonal events. Don’t be impatient! I would certainly rather wait a week or two to save money on a pricey purchase, than be impatient and end up spending more!

Sunny & Stylish South Beach, Florida

Black & Blue
NEWS FLASH everyone: fall fashions are just around the corner. As fall approaches, it’s that time again to transition your everyday summer style, to more autumn-like threads. Yes everyone, this means no more shorts, crop tops, or sandals. As immensely sad as it may seem that summer is coming to a halt, I CANNOT wait to sport more cooler & deeper tones that embody the fall months.

Above is an awesome transitional ensemble that is well suited for the end of summer. The leather pants provide more coverage as the cooler temps dwindle in, yet the sleeveless, jean jacket is still appropriate for the occasional warmer days. And of course, a look is never complete without an overabundance of accessories. The outfit above is paired with an ever-classic Hermes bracelet, Ray-Ban sunnies, uber cute animal print pumps, and a leather Givenchy clutch purse. Ultimately, this look is integral to wear as the weather crawls into cooler conditions.

Weighing in on Wedges

‘Tis the season for wearing wedges! Wedges pair perfectly with almost any summer outfit, and they flatter all figures as well. An outfit adorned with a posh pair of wedges ignites instant style, and embraces comfort. The fact that such a cute shoe can efficiently elongate the leg is wonderful. For those who are slightly height-challenged, these shoes are perfect for you, because of the fact that they add inches onto your natural height. In addition, they are extremely versatile in the sense that they can appropriately be worn during the day, yet they can comfortably be worn during evening hours.

There are several styles and shapes of wedges that work with specific styles. Some tend to be more on the simpler side and can go with a more casual, day-time outfit, and others are embellished with rhinestones and ribbons ideal for a more formal occasion. Here are some of the wedges outside of my personal collection that epitomize style and vogue:

Maxi Dress Madness

Good Morning Fashionistas, incase you didn’t know, ITS MAXI DRESS SEASON! Here are some different types of maxi dresses that you can search for in the desired store you wish to shop at, as well as some maxi dress wearing tips. Maxi dresses are the absolute trendiest apparel item that you can wear to a more-than-casual but less-than-formal occasion. For example, last Saturday was my friend’s graduation party, and I wore one of my maxi dresses to the event. Since the dress is cotton, it definitely dresses down the look, however, the fact that it is a dress spices up the femininity, establishing the ideal look.

There is only ONE rule when it comes to donning a maxi dress: DO NOT PAIR WITH WEDGES!

When pairing this elongated dress with elongated shoes, the look becomes completely warped. The shoes do not compliment the dress (or vice versa), because they both are huge fashion statements that do not work well together. So keep the shoe game simple wearing flat sandals, and you can never go wrong.

The following are a few different maxi dress styles that are up for grabs under several various brands. Take your pick!

Primped and Polished

I recently purchased a few nail polishes that caught my eye in the store! These colors are essential for every girl’s nail polish collection. The two pink hues are rather similar, but even the smallest color variation definitely makes a difference. The green hues are also necessary for summer, because if you couldn’t tell already, I recently am OBSESSED with green, so of course I had to purchase these two sassy shades. Which one is your favorite?!

Who loves Short Shorts?!

WE love short shorts!!! Shorts can be SO fun! They can come in funky prints, consist of shiny studs, be high-waisted, or contain cool colors. Here are some shorts that I am in love with. To construct this list of fabulous shorts, I drew inspiration from my friends, my favorite brands, and Philadelphia street style. Which style is YOUR favorite?

Summer StateMINTs

Mint

My absolute FAVORITE trend that hit stores and runways this past spring is MINT! The glamorous color goes wonderfully with every skin tone and hair color. You can also wear any colored accessories with this trend as well. Whether it be silver, gold, black, or even red, mint looks perfect with just about everything. Thank goodness the Pantone color of the year is green (Emerald), because it has allowed me to incorporate green pieces into my wardrobe and become acquainted with my new favorite obsession, MINT!

Mint Pants

Do you believe that I don’t own a pair of mint skinny jeans?!?! I know, right? Don’t worry, because my whole spring/summer wardrobe consists of this green-ish hue. I am currently on a mission to find the perfect tone of mint skinny jeans that I could wear to death this season.

Alessandra Ambrosio

Even supermodels, like Alessandra Ambrosio (pictured above)

are flaunting the popular trend.

So here’s to the official start of SUMMER!!! Happy Memorial Day to everyone and a quick shout out to all of the men and women who continue to support our country!

For a classy/preppy look, pair a solid colored blazer with a printed dress for an instant and stylish ensemble. Be sure to make sure your accessories are not too gaudy, because the print of the dress, and the vibrant colored blazer will add enough spice to this look. A few arm candy pieces, along with a bold time-piece, and a classic crossbody bag, instantly pull the look together, and will have everyone gushing over your chic and sassy outfit.

This striped crop top is essential for this summer season’s wardrobe. It can be paired with virtually any bottom, and would look especially fabulous with this pair of studded jean shorts below!
