Date By the Ocean

My baby boy turned 5 on Friday, so we spent the entire weekend celebrating his birthday. Friday night we went to Adventureland where he took me on this ride called Turbulence. I have gone on many roller coasters in my life - The Scream Machine, Nitro, and Batman to name a few.

White Party

When you think of summer, you think days at the beach, BBQs at night and perhaps the occasional white party.  No color screams summer more than the crisp color white, which makes it a key color to have in your closet this summer.

The Importance of Accessories

In the past, one of my biggest struggles when putting together an outfit was figuring out which accessories worked best. I never knew what to use in order to truly elevate the look. I started to add more accessories to my collection and slowly got over my insecurities. Now I have become more comfortable and realized what a difference accessories can make.

Cocktail Chic

Cocktail Attire has become more and more common these days but what exactly does that mean? My husband and I have been fortunate enough to attend many formal events over the years and the phrase “Cocktail Attire” has expanded to cover almost every type of event. As a result, finding the right cocktail dress can be a worthy investment.

Romantic Ruffles

This year has been all about the sleeves. For me - the bigger and the more ruffles - the better. Also, extremely popular is the floral embroidery trend. I now have a couple of shirts and shorts in my closet with embroidery and I love how it spices up a basic piece of clothing.

The Summer Jumpsuit

The jumpsuit can easily transition to summer if you find one in a lightweight material. It is a great piece to wear when dining out because most restaurants are heavily air conditioned.

July 4th Celebrations

July 4th is a very special day for my family. Not only is it an American celebration, but it is also my husband's birthday! Before we had kids we would travel to the city and watch the fireworks, but now we just like to hang out at home with some friends.

Summer Nights

Jeans will always be a staple in my closet, but for cooler summer nights I like to change it up with a lightweight cropped pant. Cropped pants are perfect for summer because they allow you to show off those cute sandals!

Floral Fun

My daughter celebrated her 7th birthday today with a painting and dancing party. I debated what to wear because the paint at the party was not washable, but I still wanted to wear something pretty to celebrate the special day.

The Beauty of Blush

The color blush has been around for a couple of years now, but this spring it seems to have taken its popularity to the next level. More and more clothing items are being offered in blush and I'm loving them all! Blush is a great color because it adds a touch of femininity and warmth to the neutral color palette.

Skorts Style

Skorts came back into fashion about 2 years ago and I have to say I am still a fan. I loved them in my teens, and I love them in my 30's. 

Ruffles & Denim

It's finally feeling like spring, so I decided to wear some new pieces that I bought for the season. Ruffles are super hot this year on everything from tops to bottoms.
