Crazy for Milly

The other night I saw a commercial for Milly for DesigNation available at Kohl's and I fell in love! Not only is the collection bright, bold, and perfect for summer...but it's also on sale. All of the pieces are so fabulous. It's going to be difficult narrowing it down to my favorite pieces...but let me give it a try---

Look of the Day- Back to Basics

People tend to think I'm crazy when I tell them that I prefer wearing dresses over jeans. Just because you're in a dress doesn't mean that you have to feel dressed up. Keeping things simple (like this look below) are what I love wearing on the weekends. So classic, but yet having fun with accessories really does make the look go a long way.

Look of the Day

1) Critter Me Timbers Bag available at ModCloth- $29.99
2) MOTO Contrast Stitch Dress available at Topshop- $75
3) Marina Cat-Eye Shades available at Nasty Gal- $20
4) Honeycomb Horn Bracelet Set available at Anthropologie- $98
5) Cora Wrap Heel available at Free People- $168

Flutter Into Spring

On my way home tonight I made a detour through McCarren Park to the dog park (Rocko's most favorite spot in the world). As he ran around I realized something...spring is finally here! The dogs in the park were smiling and having a good time, the birds were chirping, the flowers on the trees were blooming, and it was 70 degrees! It will be just a matter of time before the butterflies start to emerge from their cocoons. Until then, I suggest you prep your wardrobe with the butterfly print trend that is taking over the season.

Butterfly Flared Dress available at Pixie Market- $76



Butterfly Garden Gown by Erin Fetherston available at Anthropologie- $395



Don't you just love it? How do you plan on wearing this fun print?

Women, Politics, and Pant Suits

Since Hillary Clinton is officially running for President I thought a post about pant suits in honor of this amazing woman would be very appropriate. From something bright and bold, to a more classic look...there is a suit for everyone's style.

Featuring Mollypacks by Molly Shaheen


Truth be told: I don't think I ever thought that I would be smiling this big over a fannypack. Or so I thought. That was what I thought before I came across this Mollypack by Molly Shaheen. The unique shape and the bold color won over my heart.



This Mollypack is handmade in NYC and is 100% leather. The adjustable belt also detatches if you want to use it as a clutch. This Textured Berry Purple Circle Mollypack is from her Spring 2015 Collection.



Summer is coming up and that really is the perfect time for a bag like this. Between concerts and summer festivals...a no fuss Mollypack would be ideal. I, however, decided to show you all that a Mollypack is really for any look or occasion. Doesn't it look great with a little black dress?


Jump on over to Molly Shaheen and order your Mollypack today!

New Orleans: Part Two

dress (similar): H&M/tights: H&M/ booties: Chelsea Crew Black Label/purse: H&M

Truth be told, I'm kind of obsessed with this dress. Yes, I know I look more like Wednesday Addams than a Southern Belle...but I'm from NYC, so deal with it.  :-)

Here is a final roundup of some my favorite shots while on our New Orleans trip. Enjoy!



My husband was horsing around...and so were the horses...




One thing that really won over my heart in New Orleans was the bright and bold colors. Blue shutters, purple doors, hot pink front stoops...and even this gate door that was covered in bottle caps! So charming and quirky...I love it.



And I'm not one for nature (at all), but these trees were amazingly beautiful!


All in all we had a nice trip...saw a lot. If you followed along on my Instagram you got to see even more shots from our adventure. It was so good to get out of NYC for a little...but we're glad to be back. 

Now...where to next???
