9 Of My 2016 Spring Must Haves

Happy Springtime friends! I love making room for florals prints, strappy sandals, and all things warmer weather. Yes I live in Florida, but a girl can still dream of the spring to summer transition. We still love to shop seasons down here.

Here are my go to’s this Spring. Enjoy!

  • Illesteva Sunglasses are hot on trend right now. How do you even choose a style, color, look?! Here is a basic black and a beautiful lavender shade.

 

  • 2 Piece Sets. I’m currently obsessing over these looks. This one is basic gray but oh so chic!

  • High Waisted Jean/Trouser. What’s not to love!

  • Striped T-Shirt Dress. I love this comfortable dress. I could wear it every day. Dress it down with some sneaks or flats or dress it up with a bold necklace and wedges.

  • Maxi’s are not going anywhere. They are versatile and a staple in my closet. This dress is gorgeous with its beautiful hues and floral print.

  • Strappy Sandals. Basic but can add an umph to just a boring jeans and t-shirt outfit while at the same time compliment a beautiful cocktail dress.

  • Patchwork Clutch. Love this jean inspired patchwork clutch. Brunch or casual dinner date approved!

  • Off Shoulder Tops. I actually love everything about this outfit from the glasses all the way down to the fringe sandals. Perfection!

My favorite looks this Fall 2014

red maxi gray top

I spend most of my days in workout clothes. I am a mom, a fitness enthusiast, and i now live in Florida. One thing I miss about the Fall weather is comfy sweaters, leggings, boots, and crisp air that compliments those looks. Here are some of my favorite Fall looks for 2014.

purple dressI love plum for this season coupled with taupe boots and the ever popular hat trend.

puff jacket with statement necklaceFlawless casual with a statement necklace to give it a little pop.

office look fall

Business meeting or chic lunch outing anyone?

leopard clutchThe clutch and fabulous heels add some sass to this muted yet classic fall look.

flare jeans

Adding subtle pops of red to any outfit is rarely not o.k. Excited to see fllare jeans making a bigger comeback this season.

Fall fashion camel jacketLayering never looked so chic!

beige dress

This dress is so gorgeous. I love the muted beige complimented with a colorful oversized scarf and brown boots. Totally up my alley.

aztec cardiganAztec print makes its way through summer and into fall fashion. Simple and pretty.

My Favorite Fitbit Flex Accessory finds

fitbit-flex

I am a Fitbit fanatic for so many reasons. I could write an entire post on why I love Fitbit, how it has helped me, and how to use it effectively syncing it with apps like Myfitness Pal. However this post is about finding the best accessories FOR my fitbit! 🙂 The standard band is not horrific and can be found at many retail outlets and online retailers, however, there is not too much that is chic, elegant, or dressy with regards to the standard flex bands. For us ladies who want to wear our flex bands all the time (after all isn’t that the point?) here are some band accessories that allow you to wear your fitbit flex when you are out on the town or just a gal who likes to dress it up on the norm.

tory-burch-fitbit

Tory Burch has come out with Fitbit flex accessories as of recently. I love the design and the option to go casual or super chic. However, the price is eeeeek. ouch! These accessories start reasonably at $38 but will run you upwards of $195.

FUNKtionalWearables

FUNKtionalWearables offers very cute chunky style fitbit flex bands. These average at $36.99.

pendant

MantovaniDesigns I cannot get enough of this pendant fitbit flex accessory. In love! for those of you looking for a necklace option and under $45 this is perfect! They also offer a more bohemian style band (pictured below) with detailed beading which is also just gorgeous.

There are many options out there to accessorize your flex. I had no idea until I actually started researching more affordable options that were not so sporty looking. What do you prefer? Sporty, Chic, or both depending on your mood?

Fall Fashion Week 2014 – Obsessions

NY Mercedes Benz Fall Fashion week as been filled with some amazing fashion. This has by far been my favorite year following some of my favorite designers. I can’t afford any of it of course 🙂 But it’s still fun to look, admire, and look for affordable versions of the latest hottest fashion trends. Favorite collections so far are Pamella Roland and Badgley Mischka.

Here are a few looks I am obsessing over. I apologize in advance for the lack of photography quality. I snapped these while having a moment watching the shows on my laptop. I know I know how dare I not be invited front row, right? Maybe one day! 🙂

Pamella Roland moment right here! The way this flowed, the detail in the fabric, the plunging neck line, the colors, I mean just perfection!

Pamella R

My favorite collection this year by far was Badgley Mischka. I had so many moments I had found myself squealing with mouth open. Thank God my husband was not home. Here are the moments had with Badgley Mischka:

B.M. sheer

B.M. plunge

B.M. collection blue

B.M. collection

The pictures just do not do these justice. Now to be able to acquire, find somewhere to wear these, and look as good as the models looked in them…you always need goals right?!

What were your favorite collections this year?

Kissable Lips For Fall

Fall Lips! It’s fall!!!! Time to break out your fall sweaters, scarves, nail colors, and of course lip candy! Here are my favorite shades for this fall season.
Image

If you are still clinging to summer pinks then you are in luck. Diane Von Furstenberg was feeling just that when she accented her models in bubble gum pink lips during New York Fashion Week. This go to color is available via MAC Cosmetics.

ImageNothing screams fall like a nice shade of cinnamon on those pouty lips. Keep your look natural and make those lips seductively pop with this gorgeous shade called Kenya from NARS Cosmetics.

Image
I personally feel you can never go wrong with a nice bold shade of red to spice up your look. I am loving Cover Girl’s Lip Perfection in Hot. Drugstore.com has this fabulous shade for under $5!

Image
When you are feeling a little adventurous MAC Cosmetics Burgundy shade is your perfect match. Keep your make up light and fresh. To avoid a gothic-like look apply a nice blush or bronze especially for you beautifully fair skinned ladies.

So, now I have shared my favorite fall lip colors. What are some colors you are looking forward to exploring this fall?
