Best of Both Worlds

Best of Both Worlds

It may still be in the mid 90's right now, but I have a lot of travel coming up for work and airplanes are notoriously chilly. And what is key on super long flights? COMFORT! Enter this sweatshirt for only $13 from SheIn and the prettiest new sneakers. I used to wear flowy maxi dresses and sandals when I was flying, but then the ick factor set in of removing your shoes to walk through security... barefoot. Hellooooooo pretty sneakers! Did I mention they're leopard print? Paired with a cozy pullover with fun open back detailing, and I'm all set to (hopefully) snooze for most of the trip.

Date Night - Fall Style

Date Night - Fall Style

We're currently hunkering down for what seems to be the slowest moving storm in history. In the words of Rose on Titanic it feels like "It's been 84 years...." I'm incredibly thankful that Hurricane Dorian has decided to go more out into the Atlantic instead of coming directly towards us which is what we prepared for. The Bahamas are on my heart, and so are the coastal ares that will still feel the impact of this beast.

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect date night look. And as we get closer to fall, I like to continue to wear what I've been rockin' all summer, but just add a fun jacket from SheIn for the cooler evenings. I loved the bold royal blue offset with the neutral jacket and shorts, and of course added a pop of leopard. My favorite!

Top {Only $8} | Jacket {Only $23} | Shorts | Leopard Clutch | Ankle Booties | Sunglasses


My favorite part about this top is that it works great for the office too. I plan on wearing it this weekend while working at our first big event of the year down at the convention center. It's the perfect combination of professional and comfort, as the last thing I need while running around all day is pulling at my clothes.

Work Pieces that Work

Work Pieces that Work

I've been on a kick lately of sprucing up my week day wardrobe. Partly because I didn't have a dress code for several years, but it was time to re-build my business casual looks. Finding pieces that work for the office, and are cozy? Sign me up! I knew when I found a houndstooth set that was also considered a loungewear set I would be comfortable all day between meetings.

When you're sitting at a desk all day or running back and forth to meetings, the last thing you want is to be uncomfortable. I get so distracted if a waistband is digging or I'm constantly pulling up straps or tugging at a pencil skirt, so this set is a total game changer!

Since it's still super hot outside, but always freezing inside the office (why is every single office always set to arctic zero on the thermostat?! Such a waste of energy in my opinion...) I love layering any look with a jacket which can easily be put on or taken off depending on temperature conditions. Even if I'm freezing, I tend to heat up quickly when on a call or presenting in a meeting. Does anyone else have this issue? Just me? K...

Fresh Pieces for BTS

Fresh Pieces for BTS

Fall may not be in the air here for quite a while (which if you've been following along, know that I am completely ok with. I'll take the warm weather over bitter cold temps any day), but the kiddos have returned to school and college campuses are bustling again with the beginning of a fresh new school year. With that comes fresh new looks like this denim jacket from SheIn that can layer over any summer look to transition to the fall.

Jacket {Only $21} | Sandals  {Only $19} | Shorts | Bag {similar} | Sunglasses | Lipstick


All of these pieces are a part of SheIn's Back to School special, and are eligible for an additional 15% off with code BTS214. Including pieces like this dress which is perfect for the office. I wore it to work last week, and it was super comfy for a day full of meetings. 

Dress {Only $15} | Heels | Double Ring | Sunglasses




Heading back to school or to the office means coffee, and in my opinion lots of it! I took this ruffle top for a spin to one of my favorite local coffee shops which layers perfectly under the above denim jacket when the temps begin to drop or by itself in the current heat.

Office Style and Palm Prints

Office Style and Palm Prints

I realized recently that I share a lot of weekend style pieces, but have been slacking in sharing what I wear to work - which let's face it is what I wear the most (other than the socially unacceptable and super comfortable lounging pieces at home - you know the drill). From 9-5 Monday-Friday, you can find me in a lot of dresses, pencil skirts, and comfortable dress pants like these paper bag waist pants from SheIn. I love the fun pops of color, and of course the colorful palm print.

Pants {Only $20} | Heels | Top | Sunglasses | Double Ring




These pants are a part of their Daily News latest and greatest finds for all your summer into fall gear. Just don't forget to add extra pops of color! I'm all about bold jewel tones right now, especially with fall on the horizon.

Birthday Weekending ~ A Day Date and a Trip

Birthday Weekending ~ A Day Date and a Trip

This is 36.... I'm low key freaking out that I'm officially in the latter half of my 30's, but have absolutely nothing to complain about. Life is good. I could not be more thankful for my beautiful family, everyone in good health, an amazing job, and friends that feel like family.


H and I both took Friday off to enjoy a day date while lil' miss was at pre-school to kick off the birthday celebrations. We started the day with the Scenic Boat Tour in Winter Park (a must do if you live in or are visiting the Orlando area), and then grabbed some lunch on Park Avenue.







I wore my ultra comfy new pull-on shorts I received from Emily for my birthday. They were perfect for walking around in the heat, and indulging in all the food. Because treat yourself!



A flight of bubbles before lunch was very appreciated, and then we grabbed a bite at one of my favorite Italian spots before stopping in a coffee shop for an iced treat.



The next morning we packed up the car, and headed to Boca Raton to stay at the Waldorf Astoria Resort. Lil' miss was excited about the beach the whole way there, and quickly made friends in the pool when she wasn't digging in the sand. We stayed at the main resort, and took a complimentary water taxi over to the Boca Beach Club to use their pools and beach for the day.

*Vacations are for coffee savored on a balcony with palm tree views*










*Walking to my birthday dinner with my favorite girl*







They even had a Moet vending machine right outside the Serendipity shop at the resort. I think we should start a petition to have these in more places. Just a wonderful thought...



*My heart is officially full*
