NYFW Favorites

Welcome back peeps!

Not sure if you keep up with the latest in the fashion world, but NYFW ss18 (New York Fashion Week- spring/summer 2018) kicks off Fashion month, then off to London, Paris, and Milan.
Going to Fashion Week is a dream/future goal, but for now let's go over some of my favorite looks from my favorite designers from NYFW.
 I really struggled narrowing this list down, trying to pick looks that could be more practical for every day life.. so grab a snack and let's begin!

Let's start with my favorite, Victoria Beckham.  Not only is she Posh, but she is #MomGoals and I've always loved her style.  Not only do I love the sheer dress layered over the button up dress, but I think pastel colors are going to be everywhere in the spring.  Keep an eye out..  lots of designers have been using blush for ss18.

Michael Kors- It was a hard choice between 5 different looks, and I have to admit the sequins won me over.  They really made sequins feel more springy with the flip flops and super deep v.  I love the blazer thrown over the shoulders- so chic.

To be honest, this blouse from this Kate Spade look isn't my favorite, it's a little too frilly.  But the reason I picked this look? The earrings- perfect statement.  Purse- simple shape+classic print=❤︎.  And I can't picture an outfit these gold mules wouldn't look good with.

Known for her interesting prints and bright array of colors, Tory Burch surprised me with a couple of basic monochromatic looks in her collection; but she nailed the 70's vibe and every look was gorgeous.  I'm surprising myself by picking this colorful floral print dress, but this dress is the PERFECT dress to wear to a summer wedding, although I do love it dressed down with the mules.

Alexander Wang... what's not to love??  I want it all.  Also a hard one to pick a favorite from.  I love the whole collection and the attention to detail, the suit coat incorporated into a dress, skirt, and slacks.  What really drew me to this look was the white t-shirt like top.  I'm assuming it's a bodysuit, and I love the cutout and lace detail.  How cute would that be with high waited jeans?

The Row.
Oh, the Olsen twins, my favorite of all time fashion inspirations.  I love their simple, yet interesting and unique approach to design, and how they dress themselves.  This monochromatic pale gold look made my heart stop.  I wish I got a better look at the shoes, but I am completely in love with this whole. thing.  The cool geometric crop top, the simple high waisted crop slacks, and my fave-the floor length duster/coat.  Perfect combination of simple and elegant.  I couldn't bare to look at the price... moving on.

Last but not least, Jason Wu.  First off I'm obsessing over all the textures and frayed hems, but I just love this whole ensemble.  The all black outfit- peplum sweater with the buttoned neckline, wrap skirt, white cage heels.  I would wear this whole outfit head to toe. Well done Jason Wu.

And those are my top picks from NYFW!  I can't wait to see London, Paris, and Milan!  Stay tuned to see more looks from Fashion Month!

New Family Members

Hello lovelies!

I'm not sure if it's just me... but is everyone having babies!?

Don't get me wrong, I love kids and can't wait to have my own little herd of weird children, covered in temporary tattoos one day.
But for now me and the husband will enjoy our naps and motorcycles. 😜

Now onto the point of this blogpost.  I wanted to share with y'all new additions to the fam!  My closet that is.
When I purchase something it's (usually) something that I am absolutely in love with, and feel can be worn, mixed and matched with other tops/bottoms.  Don't you just hate when you buy that one shirt and NEVER wear it because you don't know what the heck to wear it with?!  Same.
This way, you avoid that!  I want to get my moneys worth out of my clothes!  Hence, why it stays in my closet for years- or until it has stains or holes.

I love shoes.
I love to shop for them and wear heels to run errands when the mood calls.  So let's start with these gooooorgeous Steve Madden platform oxfords.  They're weird I know.  But I knew I needed platforms in my life when I saw my idol aka Olivia Palermo rocking them with everything.  These are a toned down version of the Stella McCartney platforms she's wearing, and quite the price cut. ($60.00 compared to $1,100)

As you can tell, Steve Madden is one of my favorite shoe designers.  Cue shoe #2: platform slip ons.  I love the platform version on the otherwise simple shoe.  It really gives it that extra extra-ness.

I'm pretty sure God shows me He loves me through shoe sales.  My sisters little puppy chewed my previous pair of Nine West mules and not a month later I find these cream peep toe mules (also Nine West!).  Redemption.  Not to mention they're on sallllleeeee! ❤︎

If you keep up to date on my Instagram, you'll recognize these mules!  I wear them constantly!  I was in need of black flats and these go with literally every. thing.

I'm pretty picky when it comes to jeans, they have to be perfect.  These American Eagle jeans are a great fit with a perfect wash, and I love the shorter crop with the frayed ends!

I have the short sleeve version of this super cute Calvin Klein top, and I wish I had the one with the bell sleeves! I'm a sucker for anything with a weird texture and a good sale.

When I posted this, I really meant it when I said I've been looking for an apron!  I'm constantly hunting a dish rag or wiping my hands on my clothes, and this cute apron comes in handy while cooking!
I'm still on the hunt for a vintage one, but it was love at first sight when I spotted this one at Target.  

Thanks for dropping in, and sticking around to the end! πŸ˜‰

In honor of the husbands Costa Rica vlog (coming soon!!!)  heres my Costa Rica outfit roundup!

For those of you unaware, me and Bernard went to Costa Rica with his fam to see his sister get married!  It was a beautiful country, a beautiful wedding, and a beautiful way to spent time with our family. ❤︎
We literally partied all week. The in laws legit now how to get down. 
Congrats Brookie!! Welcome to the married life πŸ–€πŸ–€ 

Below are a few of my outfits from the week, otherwise we were in swimsuits!

'Shinestar' off the shoulder blush blouse; a random brand from TJMAXX, I'll link a few other really cute ones below!
Vanity Room cold shoulder cami- love the silk!
Ruffled cold shoulder top *and its on  S A L E !

'State of Being' asymmetrical skirt- got this for $6!! #BargainShopper
I also love this asymmetrical skirt by ASOS and this J Brand skirt!

Steve Madden clear heels- my heels for the week and for the wedding.  They were taller than I was used to, so I was determined to break them in for the wedding. 

Wicker clutch.  I stole this from my little sister last time I was home.  Can you believe this cute lil clutch came from the Bahamas like 10 years ago!?

Target bikini top and bottoms.  I love the mesh details!


Loft fringe sweater- I always travel with a sweater!

J Crew white shorts (These are on repeat!)

Lucky Brand sunnies (get used to seeing these because they're my only pair.  I always have to get cheap sunglasses because Im notorious for breaking mine!)


Blue Island bathing suit cover up.  Couldn't find my exact one, but this one is similar!! Im very into detail, and I love the peplum bottom and the material.  You could even wear it with a slip and a pair of heels to dress it up!


Black halter neck- I have no idea what brand this is or where I got it!  Oops!
This one is cute!

Tommy Hilfiger textured skirt-  Consignment shop find! 

Vintage crochet chain purse

Steve Madden clear heels

What are your travel plans this summer!?  Give us ideas for next year!!
Happy Friyay and have a great weekend!


Sunday, July 16, 2017



Ahh Sunday... my favorite day of the week.
Church, a pizza date with my man, and a sunset motorcycle ride- can life be better?  Silly or not, being on the motorcycle is one of my favorite times to talk\listen to the Lord.  

Sunday is a sweet reminder to slow down, be at peace in His presence; life is nothing without it.  No matter what happens in life, God is with us and for our good and loves us.  God just truly takes care of me and Bernard, and He has always prepared the way- way ahead of us or our own plan.  I just love Him, the husband and family He's given me, and Sundays.  

Now we are off to watch our Netflix show, and eat our leftover pizza for the 3rd meal in a row!  

Below, I've linked outfit details πŸ’—

Outfit Details:
Vince Camuto dress-  this was a great addition to my closet.  Wear it with heels and grab a glittery clutch, or fancy-ish flats and belt it and you have two different looks!  The pink belt is a nice hint of color and semi matched my purple purse.  Y'all I'm still on my monochromatic kick.  

Tahari oxfords.  These have been on repeat lately!

*the bracelet under it is actually a choker I doubled up.  

Can't think for the life of me where I got the belt.  But this cute Emily Pucci belt is totally on my wishlist. I love the feathers!

Chain purse.  Dirt cheap find- amen.  *If I do any color, its usually with a bag. 

Pink Lucky Brand Sunglasses.  

The dolphin bangle was a souvenir from the Bahamas a few years ago.  Still just as obsessed with it.  Have to keep him with my mermaid. 

Vintage Lisner chain bracelet.  

Keep an eye out for the hubbys Costa Rica vlog!  Thanks for reading!

Work It.

Happy Monday folks! 
Today I wanted to share a little at-home workout me and the husband cooked up!  Since summer time is B's busiest season and he works late almost everyday, working out isn't really a priority anymore.  But, before our Costa Rica trip we PROMISED we would work out every day even if it meant doing a quick 20 minute workout at the house.  Spoiler alert we failed big time and only managed to get a few workouts in before the vacay. 😁 

 This workout was a LOT harder than I expected and by the end of it we were dripping sweat and ready for a nap!
Super simple, super hard and all you need is a jump rope!
Although I will say, this should be a high intensity work out and you should give it 110%.  
After all its only 10 minutes. 😈

10 minutes:
πŸ“Œ10 Jumping Lunges
πŸ“ŒJumping Air Squats
πŸ“ŒJumping Jacks
πŸ“Œ30 second Handstand hold 
*if you are unable to do a free standing handstand hold, lean against a wall or a fence.  If you can kinda do it I say play around with the hand stand holds and practice for about 30 seconds.
πŸ“Œ100 meter sprint 
*eyeball it!

10 minutes of jump rope (double unders if you can) 30 seconds on 30 seconds off
Yup, you'll be dead and done after this.  Lungs on fire!!  Side note notice those huge mosquito bitesπŸ˜‘  The biggest con to outdoor workouts!

Outfit Details:
Nike Pro compression shorts
Old Navy sports bra (mine has been customized 😜)
Nike tennies
Lucky Brand sunnies

Thanks for reading!  Comment below how it goes if you do this workout!! 😘

What's up everyone!
So, spoiler alert, this post has nothing to do with ketchup! lol  
But the idea was to get you to interested so if you're still reading, it worked ;)
But, we are going to play 'catch up'!

I've been traveling more than I'm used to, but I love that it gives me the opportunity to see family and friends often.  I spent time with a few long time best friends (one I haven't seen in 2 years) Made my heart happy. πŸ’“

Outfit Details:
JACHS plaid shirt (fun fact: I always have to travel with one of my husbands shirts. ❤️)
Old Navy peplum hem tank top
 Strappy dress from Express- a hand me down from a super sweet friend who always remembers me when she cleans out her closet :) here's a dupe!
Joe Fresh pocket tee my awesome sis in law gave me! 
Steve Madden gold glitter heels (if you're a loyal reader, you know these are my go-to's for a fancy occasion.)

I also got to ride in the helicopter at my moms work (she's a flight nurse/badass) and it was the coolest thing ever.  
My mom, sister and I got matching tattoos that following day.. (aren't they cute?!)  We had been planning on getting the tattoos for a while- and I'm so happy we finally did it!

Saturday night we had a fun lingerie shower for the bride to be, and Sunday we spent the morning celebrating my sis in laws wedding with tea at Windsor Court.  Needless to say it was a busy, fun filled weekend!


Now the day is almost here, THE WEDDING!  We leave for Costa Rica Tuesday and I can hardly wait!  Bernard is more excited about vlogging more than anything πŸ™ˆ
Thanks for stopping by!
