A few weeks ago I styled this dress for a casual day out while running errands with the kids. (You can see that post here). Today, I decided to dress it up a bit to show you just how versatile this comfy shirt dress can be. It was extremely easy to take this dress from day to night with just some simple accessory changes. I swapped out my bejeweled inspired birkenstock sandals and traded them in for an edgy pair of snakeskin gladiator heels and went with a simple clutch instead of the large cross body bag that I used while out running errands with my kids. These simple changes stepped this look up a notch and turned a casual ensemble into a chic out on the town look. 

Thanks for visiting!

My family and I spend almost every weekend in the summer down at the Jersey Shore while most week days, you can find my kids and I at the swim club. Basically, I spend a lot of my summer in a swim suit, so having great suits on hand is a must for me. I don't discriminate when it comes to swim suit styles, whether it be a one piece, two piece or even a monokini, I love them all. 

Today, I want to introduce to you, one of my favorite swim suit brands, Bikini Lab! They offer a vast variety of the most trendiest suits available. I bought my first suit by them last year to go on vacation with my husband and received so many compliments. Bikini Lab has successfully created a line of high quality swim suits that truly make you feel amazing. I highly recommend checking them out if your ever in search of that perfect swimsuit! 

You can find Bikini Lab available at huge retailers such as NordstromASOSMacy's and Dilliard's!


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! xo

Leopard Shift Dress: River Island (old) Similar here(on sale!) and I LOVE this one here | Blue Clutch: Halogen (on sale!) | Black Booties: Halogen (on sale!) | Mirrored Sunglasses: Forever21 (bought last season) similar here |  Watch: Guess (old) Similar here

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! We spent our's down at my dad's shore house. We try to get down there as much as possible, even though this weekend wasn't exactly beach weather. It was so cold and windy, which is so crazy for the middle of July! We did end up having a great time at the boardwalk, going on a few rides and enjoying some funnel cake and salt water taffy! The kids were very happy campers!

Since this past weekend threw us a weather curveball and we saw the temperatures drop into the low 70's, I decided to break out this leopard shift dress that I purchased a few months ago. I intended to save it for the fall (it's a bit on the heavy side), but after the weather got a bit chilly on Friday night I took the opportunity to wear it a bit early, especially since I was dying to wear my new Halogen ankle booties that I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. (I absolutely love them and find them to be really comfortable and true to size!) They were the perfect accompaniment to my leopard shift dress, while my blue Halogen clutch and mirrored sunglasses added some splashes of well needed color to brighten up my ensemble and to keep it reminiscent of summer. 

Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful week!

Floral Print Blazer: Zara (old) Identical Here | Chiffon Blouse: Two by Vince Camuto (My favorite top and it's on sale!) | Distressed Shorts: Forever21 (I sized up) | Booties: Chinese Laundry (old) similar styles here (on sale!) here, and here (on sale!)

I bought this floral print blazer a few months ago from Zara during one of their sales and haven't gotten much use out of it until recently (last seen here). I've been trying to make a promise to myself to shop my closet more often and to give some of my older pieces more attention. I paired it with my all time favorite distressed shorts from Forever21 (highly recommend them!) and some suede booties for a more casual vibe. It was the perfect, simple look for a day out, that even got to include meeting up with a girlfriend for some coffee!

Don't forget, The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens up to the public tomorrow! Shop early for the best selection! You can view my favorites from the sale here!

Like every girl, there are pieces in my closet that I love to wear over and over again. (Like this top: seen here and here and skirt, last seen here.) When I'm out shopping, one of the main components I look for is versatility. I like to know that I can achieve many different looks and really get my money's worth. If I can't think of at least two different ways I can wear it, I usually won't buy it. (Unless it's one of those omg pieces that you can't leave without.)  Let's face it though, having 365 different outfits a year just isn't normal. To me, the true art of styling is being able to work those favorite pieces of yours to create different looks each time you wear them.

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! Saturday, my husband and I finally got away from the kids for a bit and got to enjoy dinner alone at one of our favorite restaurants. After a long week of the kids driving me absolutely insane and having endless amounts of cleaning up to do it was a welcomed relief to get a mini break. 

I choose to wear this colorful striped crop top and matching skirt from Sheinside out on our date. It has a fun playful vibe as well as a little sex appeal. I actually saw this similar look featured in a magazine a few months back from the designer Tanya Taylor that I absolutely loved, but the price of the outfit could easily feed my entire family for a month. So you could imagine my excitement when I saw an almost exact version of the set being offered at Sheinside! Both pieces being sold together for under $35? Now that was meant to be!  I highly recommend checking it out!
