ALL ABOUT MARC

Happy Friday lovelies!  Boy am I glad the week is over.  For a short week, it definitely felt long!  I am going to a picnic with my mom tomorrow.  It is her company's annual picnic.  My best friend just started working there about a month ago and will be there as well.  I am really looking forward to it.  The weather should be very nice and hot.  Finally, after the back and forth weather for the last month or so, I think summer is just about here which means the BEACH!  Cannot wait!

If you haven't figured out yet, the Marc I am referring to in my post is of course, the one and only Marc Jacobs.  After weeks and weeks of eyeing this cross body bag of his, I finally took the plunge and decided to get it.  It is just the perfect everything.  Initially what caught my eye was the bright blue color.  After trying it on (more than once but I won't tell you how many), it was just the right size too.  Perfect little bag for summer.  I'm so glad I got it.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!  xoxo

BACK TO BASICS




Blouse: Equipment (blue version here) | Skirt: Express (old) | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Purse: Coach Factory | Sunglasses: Armani | Bracelet: Pandora

Happy Wednesday lovelies!  Tonight I met up with my friend right after work for a sushi dinner.  My camera ran out of battery so I had to take the last two pics with my iPhone.  The food is always good and we had a nice time chatting.

I had my friend snap a couple of quick shots right outside the restaurant.  My outfit today is just a play on the basics - button up shirt, pencil skirt, and pointy heels.  I kept it simple with minimal jewelry.  Yellow is my all time favorite color and I love wearing it.  It always puts me in a happy mood.  What color do you love that brightens up your mood?

A DAY AT THE PARK






Dress: Urban Outfitters (old) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe | Purse: Louis Vuitton

Happy Monday lovelies!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  It was nice having the day off today for Memorial Day.  My mom and I went to the park nearby her house this morning.  It was a beautiful day.  Warm and breezy.  In the afternoon, I went to a BBQ at my fiance's mom's home.  We had hot dogs and hamburgers.  It was so good!  I love anything cooked on the grill.

I chose this dress to wear because I think it's the perfect sundress.  Good for many occasions.  I dressed it up with a pair of heels but it is just as perfect with flats.  I've been seen shopping at the mall with this dress and I even wore it to an outdoor (more casual) wedding.  It has smocking detail in the back so I never feel restricted when I eat too much.  I love food so it's an added bonus when I can find something that looks good and is comfortable to wear even after a big meal.

Have a great week and thanks for reading!  xoxo

MINT TO BE








Blouse: Joie | Skirt: Hinge (on sale here) | Jacket: Trouve (sold out) | Shoes: Steve Madden | Clutch: South Moon Under | Necklace: J Crew, Francesca's | Photos: Walter Crowe Photography

Hi Lovelies!  I had such a wonderful time at brunch with my best friend today!  It was my first time seeing her new house.  It is absolutely beautiful and I loved all the decor.  Will have pictures next time to share.  I was completely amazed at what she did with it.

My current favorite color for Spring is mint.  I think it's such a pretty, soft, clean, and feminine color.  I'm practically obsessed with it.  I shopped the Nordstrom half-yearly sale yesterday and my personal stylist picked out this beautiful mint leather jacket for me.  It was love at first sight!  Of course I had to make my outfit completely girly by pairing it with a printed lace skirt and a ruffle blouse.

My friend looked stunning in her red Rock & Republic dress.  She paired it with the most amazing Epi Louis Vuitton.  Such a classic style and vibrant color.

Special thanks to Walter Crowe Photography for the amazing photos.

BARGAIN SHOPPER




Blouse: Lorick | Jacket: H&M | Jeans: Paige (on sale here) | Sunglasses: Armani | Purse: Coach

Hi Lovelies!  Hope your week has been going well.  I had a casual night out with friends a few days ago.  It was a goodbye party for two of my good friends who are moving to Key West next week.  I got my jacket on sale at H&M for $10!  I love a good bargain.

I got half the day off from work tomorrow and am going to meet my best friend for brunch.  It will be a nice kick off to the weekend.  Happy Memorial Day and enjoy the holiday weekend!

DRESS TO IMPRESS




Blouse: DKNY (sold out) | Skirt: Trina Turk | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Photos: Walter Crowe Photography

Hi Lovelies!  Hope your week has been going well.  Thought I'd share one of my outfits from work today.  I always try my best to dress as nice as I can for work.  The phrase I heard a lot when I first started working was you should dress to impress and it has really stuck with me ever since.  I work in a pretty professional environment so looking and dressing my best is a must in my opinion.  You never get a second chance to make a first impression as they say.  It's a good thing I love dressing up!  I keep it interesting by adding bright colors or accessorizing.  How do you spice up your work outfit?

Thanks for reading!  Enjoy the rest of your week!  xoxo

SUNDAY FUNDAY










Blouse: Elie Tahari | Jacket: Topshop (sold out) | Pants: BDG (black version here) | Shoes: Joe's (on sale here) | Purse: Louis Vuitton (retired) | Necklace: Yochi | Ring: Ariella Collection | Earrings: QVC (old) | Photos: Walter Crowe Photography

Happy Sunday!  Hope you had a great weekend!  It turned out to be a busy couple of days for me.  Had an impromptu shopping trip with a friend on Saturday and a planned mall trip today with dinner and lunch with friends in between.

I had a lot of success the two days shopping.  The shoes and necklace I'm wearing are new.  I also got a shirt, pair of jeans, shorts, sunglasses, and a jacket.  Can't wait to wear them!  I love getting new stuff.

The necklace is my favorite from my shopping spree and I couldn't wait to wear it.  The weather today was not so great.  It was raining this morning and foggy but I think the pictures ended up coming out well despite the conditions (although my hair started getting frizzy towards the end).

GOING CASUAL





Blouse: Robert Rodriguez | Pants: Abercrombie & Fitch | Purse: Coach Factory | Sunglasses: Chanel

Happy Friday everyone!  Met up with a good friend of mine last night for dinner.  Decided to go completely casual.  It was just one of those days when I did not feel like dressing up (ladies you know what I'm talking about).  Threw on a pair of comfy pants and flats and I was out the door.  So here I am, without all the glitz and glamour.

GOLD RUSH





Dress: Bebe (old) | Shoes: Pelle Moda | Clutch: Be&D | Belt: Coach (old) | Earrings: Jessica Matrasko | Bracelets: David Yurman, old from QVC | Ring: David Yurman

Happy Wednesday everyone!  The week is more than half over!  Sunday I am going to the mall with some girlfriends.  Really looking forward to it because I need new stuff for the summer (plus I got a bunch of gift cards for my birthday I need to use)!  When the weather is nice, it always puts me in a good mood and gives me motivation to dress up.  I am obsessing over this Saint Laurent ring.  What are you currently obsessing over?
