Sporty







A main thing that goes through my mind when I'm thinking of what to wear is comfort. This dress is c-om-fay... and you can even adjust how much leg your willing to show off. It's like your boyfriends jersey (or your imaginary boyfriend's jersey you bought on sale at dicks) you wish you could wear and look cute in, but totally does not work. Don't worry, boyfriend or no boyfriend, anyone could rock this sporty cool dress.

Treasure Hunting for a Glowing Face



Whether you own a little, a lot, all the same brand or an eclectic stash, makeup can tell a lot about a person. I enjoy finding new brands, colors, and quality stuff for my face.                 

Finding the perfect makeup is hard. I'm torn between brands, colors, packaging, and what my friends or other bloggers suggest. Owning a fully stuffed makeup bag is something that takes time, shows character. I'm not saying you should wear a ton of makeup (I don't) but, finding that perfect blush, right color foundation or lip tint is a hard science. Its like a treasure hunt.

Here are a few of my favorite treasures, old and new, I thoroughly enjoy putting on my face. 








Belle

 For my first look I wanted to style a dress that was classy, but could be worn semi-casually. Then, I found these Vince Camuto boots and fell in love, thinking they would make the dress more laid back and stylish. Mixing formal wear with laid back pieces really creates an eclectic and different look. Try it out sometime! Take that formal cocktail dress sitting in the back of your closet out and pair it with some fun shoes and cool lip color. Voila, a whole new outfit!

This outfit made me want to walk right out the store, hop in a fancy car and go on a dinner date with the gals. I had such a fun time putting this together. I'm all about short dresses and since this one hit a little longer I made sure to add some super high edgy shoes. This jacket looked perfect just draped over the shoulders too and the lip color topped it all off.

Styling Suite Challenge Day 1




Too many to choose from! 


I've found the dresses… Now off to find shoes!





Loving these Steve Madden heels, classic and fierce. 



Belle Badgley Mischka has an exclusive jewelry line as well. Isn't this piece perfect?



Had to stop by Bobbi Brown for some lip color of course.



This week I had the pleasure of attending the Dillard's Style Suite Challenge to celebrate the first anniversary of Belle Badgley Mischka at Dillard's! I was able to use my local store as a styling suite by picking out the perfect shoes and accessories to match my Belle Badgley Mischka dresses
I think I've found all I need for the perfect look- Stay tuned to see how I put it all together!

Magical



Strangely enough while shooting at this location I felt I had arrived on the set of an enchanted forest where the trees talked and fairies sprinkled pixie dust. Call me crazy, but this place was rad. All it took was a little wandering… and the perfect outfit.

Fresh Nights


I shot this while in the Hamptons this past summer. Although the Hamptons tend to have a beachy/country club vibe over the summers I always seem to stumble upon beautiful fields and deserted lots that I wouldn't pin as "The Hamptons"…thats why I like it. Those places you constantly go to for years and years yet they always change and always offer a fresh start to keep you exploring and wanting to return. 
It gets a little chilly as the sun sets up north and I find myself always forgetting "that" jacket to help keep myself from shivering my dinner date away. My jean jacket is the perfect addition to any causal dinner date or stroll down main street at night. I admit, this post is making me miss summer nights in the Hamptons and my long mermaid hair.

Falling for Fall


It's hard saying goodbye to bikinis, sun kissed skin, long naps on the beach and everything that Summer offers. Since I usually have such a hard time withdrawing I thought I would put together some fall trends I'm looking forward to seeing in my closet to help ease the pain! As we send Summer off with tan kisses and bleach blonde hair, try and put together some inspiration of things you're looking forward to this fall. As I always say, in the life of a clothing addict, seasons mean a wardrobe change… a wardrobe change means more shopping.

Chopped






Cutting off almost all my hair was a hard decision. I was attached to it, literally! Although I loved my long locks I knew I was in need of a haircut. After doing some research I decided I was going to donate my hair. If I was going to cut 4" why not cut 8" and have it help someone in need? Plus, it will grow back! Overall I was so happy and excited to be able to bless a girl in need by gifting her something money couldn't buy. To the girl who receives my hair: I hope you enjoy it, curl it, play with it and love it. I know you'll rock it better than I ever did and I hope you can be your own kind of beautiful (mermaid) !

I encourage anyone who reads this to check out Locks of Love and Pantene Beautiful Lengths. If you have long hair there is a girl out there who needs you and would love your locks more than you think you ever could. Hair is just an everyday item to us, but to those in need it means the world, it means confidence and bravery. Help Her.

Flower



Flower stands in the Hamptons are like stilettos at Neimans. They're EVERYWHERE! I have a tendency to stop at almost every one I pass. Their color draws you in their scent makes you bring them home!
 So, bear with me as I indulge in New York's finest blossoms.
