Hey Babes!
Today's post features a 2nd go in The Lena Dress available now exclusively at Lane Bryant πŸ˜‰ Check out the first look that I styled from the collection in my last post HERE. The Sleeveless Lena Dress differs slightly from the Short Lena Dress, however the same great fit is definitely in place. 
What could be more versatile than a dress that goes from the office to the beach with ease?!  It's totally designed to be worn everywhere. This dress features a v-neck, fit & flare cut, and high-low hem. Sidebar: This Corsair Blue hue is simply beautiful😍Pair it with a jacket or sweater for dinner parties, heels and sparkling jewelry for a night out, or a tailored blazer for an easy look for your 9-5. 

Check out the entire Lena dress line including a fabulous jumpsuit HERE!


Until next time,

Today's blog post features The Lena Dress, a fan favorite exclusively available at Lane Bryant. The Lena Dress flatters every body type! Get this: Not only is it universally flattering - it is now available in a variety of colors and silhouettes! What color would you like to rock it in? I'm wearing the short Lena Dress in ivory. 
Fit & flare fits are my comfort zone, the fit of this dress does not disappoint in the least. I'm wearing a size 12. Not only does it offer the perfect amount of stretch (100% polyester), it has a belt that is perfect in width and length to cinch your waist, PLUS---> it has functional pockets!!!
The Lena dress is ideal to close out the final days of summer and to usher in the first days of FALL. When the temperatures shift, I can see it easily styled with a blazer, silk scarf, leather boots, and a cute tote. 
Oh, did I mention that it is also machine washable?!

Frill Seeker

Hey Babes,
It wouldn't be summer without a swimsuit post! I snagged this vintage paisley print number from a brand based in Australia. I absolutely love the frill detail on the bikini top + the fact that it can be worn on or off the shoulders. Versatility is a beautiful thing! I prefer two-piece swimsuits over one-piece suits for this very reason. If I can mix & match - even better! Over to you, do you prefer one-piece suits over bikinis, tankinis, etc?
Until next time,
Xx

Here & There

Hey Babes!!!
I stand in disbelief that this is my very first blog post of the SUMMER πŸ‘€ Can you believe it? Hopefully you keep up with me on Instagram and you're already aware that I'm alive and thriving, but in the event that you don't - HERE I AM! πŸ˜†How are you?! I have missed you so! I promise: Consistency is on the way! 
SUMMER 2019 has been packed with travel, working with brands (including snagging my biggest contract to date🎈🎈🎈), events, and sheer JOY! Since I started blogging way back when I've always struggled in creating the proper balance with being in a moment versus capturing a moment for my blog/social media accounts. If you've been along with me for the ride, you know that nine times out of ten I opt to LIVE in a moment versus capture it on film and share it with others. 
However, I've set a few new intentions for myself, included among them is mastering the balance of living a life and sharing it.
Until next time,
Xx

A classic wardrobe staple is a midi skirt. The one featured in today's post stood out to me particularly because of its fabulous leopard print paired with red and pink hues 😍
I styled it in two simple ways that could totally be ideal for a summer day. 
Which look is your favorite?! I'm forever partial to red...
Until next time,

Hey Babes, 
Today's post features my all time favorite color duo: black & white 😍 Looking at the pictures from this shoot inspired me to get the ball rolling on planning my next international trip. Doesn't it look like I'm somewhere in Europe?! This vibe was just what I needed to begin looking at where I'd like to go next, and more importantly, when.
Until next time,

Color Theory

Is there anything more synonymous with SUMMER than sundresses?! Okay, maybe swimsuits, shorts, or picnics...but you get my drift πŸ˜‰ The weather has been unseasonably cool...I am trying to channel SUMMER weather and will it into existence! This sundress is lightweight, saturated in color, and topped off with functional buttons 😍 I see myself wearing pieces similar to it all summer long! Oh, and did I mention, it also has pockets!!!
Until next time,
Xx

I spotted this two-piece leopard print set online a couple of weeks ago, immediately I was totally smitten. I added it to my online shopping cart and purchased it right away --> which is a true indication that the likeability factor was HIGH 😁 You see, normally items sit in my online cart for days....and a number of them are periodically moved to my Wishlist, LOL! 
When this set arrived by mail it did not disappoint, the fit was on point, it looked exactly the way that I envisioned it in my mind- clearly an added bonus. 
I'm partial to the color RED forever and always, it's totally predictable that I opted to pair this ensemble with red sunnies, earrings, lip stain, and sandals😍
Until next time Babes,
Xx
