I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off my favorite season than doing a holiday giveaway! I stumbled across JORD watches as I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and I automatically fell in love with their style, design and esthetic. They are a unique company that creates their watches with natural wood materials. I ordered the Frankie collection as a Christmas gift for one of my friends. This particular collection is made from Zebrawood and has beautiful gold and champagne details. The modern, lightweight design truly creates a thought provoking time piece.
When I am working I usually don’t like to wear anything on my wrist because I am a hairdresser and my hands are always in water or chemicals. They informed me that they treat each component with tung oil to protect the grain, making the watch splash proof.
I really love mine and was so happy with my purchase. I was ecstatic about this collaboration so I could give back to my loving readers! Also, if you are looking for a last minute holiday present they also do custom engraving.

If you haven’t seen this trend floating around Pinterest or Instagram, Let me be the first to tell you. I honestly couldn’t be happier about it! Who said white was off limits after Labor Day!? There is a way to wear your white staples after the holiday and here are a few ways to do it. I fell in love with these white boots from Topshop and they have been my go-to booties all week. The first thing I noticed about the boots was the soft leather and unique shape. I am a sucker for a good point toe, especially when they are comfy enough to wear longer than ten minutes! Wearing a bold shoe is an easy way to elevate your look and dress up a delicate or casual outfit. Here are two easy ways to incorporate this bold booty into your wardrobe.
Comfy, casual looks are my usual off-duty style. I think if women walked around bra-less with a killer pair of yoga pants, this world would be a much happier place! But on those lazy days when I just don’t feel like doing the most, I put on a kick ass pair of booties or a statement heel. The reason why I love fashion is because there are NO rules. You can wear a comfortable sweater or sweatshirt, throw on a heel and automatically feel like you can take on your day with conviction! Pair your favorite athletic outfit with a bold booty and channel your inner Sporty Spice with me.
Pairing the ankle boot with a floral mini gave this look more of an edge, without much effort. Instead of pairing a delicate style with a classic pump, I think the boot gave the outfit more versatility. They make a perfect transitional piece if you’re headed out to dinner after a day at the office. I also can’t wait to pair them with cropped jeans and an oversize sweater. I made sure to do a thorough search to find the best choices for your closet. I hope you amp up your looks with a touch of white this fall!

Don’t pack your summer wardrobe away just yet! Pumpkin spice season has just begun, and there are still a few warm days left ahead. The thought of shopping for a new wardrobe can get a little overwhelming and add up in cost. I have come up with a few tips that will help you transition into the new season without breaking the bank!

My ultimate essential during transition period is a leather or denim jacket. You can easily throw it over your shoulders to dress up any summer tank or bodysuit. It is the perfect piece for chilly, late summer evening.
I really love high-waisted trousers that have a comfortable fit. Pairing them with a light, summer top will accommodate the changing weather. I think you can wear distressed jeans all year round. This pair, I purchased from Bloomingdale’s. In my opinion Hudson, Paige and Levi jeans have the most comfortable fit. (PS. Shop their Labor Day sale!!! )
Lastly, a bad ass pair of patent leather pumps or booties can be a staple to any fall outfit. They immediately add polish and personality to anything you’re wearing. Pair them with skinny jeans, long tunics or sweaters.

There is no doubt that the bodysuit has been brought back to life from the 80’s. It has been seen in every model-off-duty’s closet. Celebrities such as Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Chrissy Teigen and other fashion icons live for this trend. They are easy to dress up with a pencil skirt and your favorite pair of heels, or dress down with a pair of vintage boyfriend jeans and converse sneakers. This season, more than ever, the bodysuit is an inspired sartorial staple available in a variety of silhouettes, fabrics, prints, and patterns. But without the help of a celeb stylist how are we supposed to pick the right fit for our body type? Well, I have come up with a simple strategy to help you get it right every single time.
Keep reading if you want to discover these three simple steps…
Pay attention to the material
It is safe to say that synthetic materials aren’t going to be as comfortable as cotton, especially if you’re going to wear it for a long period of time. If you are going to wear it with tighter bottoms, make sure you chose a softer material to avoid any irritation. Ladies, you know exactly what kind of irritation I am talking about (ouch).
Take drastic measures
Figuratively speaking, make sure you measure accurately! I wouldn’t recommend purchasing your usual size because the suit will vary depending on the length of your torso. When it comes to regular tops I am typically a size small or medium, but in body suits, I am usually a size medium or large. I always hesitate to purchase larger sizes because of my long torso, but I am thankful when I don’t have to deal with a dreaded wedgie in all the wrong places.
Cover for comfort
The styles are endless, from plunging necklines, to backless, skin tight fits. Know yourself and what you will feel the most confident in. I typically don’t wear a bra, so I always chose a style that has thicker material in the front for extra support. It is important to choose the cut that you will feel comfortable in; that will also allow a little breathing room for the girls.

The bay of Naples is known to be one of the most romantic and colorful destinations in the world. The pastel colors of each house and the comfortable laid-back lifestyle gave me a ton of inspiration on what to wear during my stay. I wanted to make sure I was comfortable enough to indulge and explore during the day but also dressy enough for an evening of dining. The cobble stone streets made it hard to wear any kind of heel (which I quickly learned), so I definitely recommend packing some comfortable shoes! Beaded sandals, wedges or a block heel would be ideal for a day in the town.
I stumbled across a local boutique called Maricella and fell in love with a bag I saw through the window. This purse was unique and reminded me of the island; consisting of different colors and textures. It was pretty interesting to find out that this brand, D’ Barrito, creates their products with the left over materials and fabrics from Fendi, Prada and Gucci. Each bag is unique and numbered in the order in which they are created. I paired it with a striped top and a relaxed pair of jeans from H&M. Tying it around my waist allowed for a comfortable day of exploring the island and spontaneous photo shoot on a rooftop in the Corricella.
( This humidity was brutal on my hair as you can see lol! )
When I came across this maxi dress from Fashion Nova, I immediately had to purchase it. I loved the lemon detail, plunging neckline and halter style straps. This citrus fruit runs through the history of Italy like a golden thread.
My favorite part of the dress was the thigh high slits that were flattering from every wind blowing angle. Side note: flowy dresses leave more room for pizza and gelato!
For the majority of summer I have been draping myself in palazzo pants and floral prints. Floral details are fun, feminine and can instantly brighten up any outfit. Here are a few of my favorite pieces…
So if you are planning a spontaneous getaway or just want to snag a good end of summer sale, I made sure to post all of the good stuff!! Enjoy shopping my loves!
