Dear life, you are meant to be lived so I am dressing for the occasion! I wore this dress, necklace, and earrings for a recent TV segment on Fox29 (see: the look on Instagram). I threw it together early that morning, right after moving, so all my stuff was/is a bit in disarray. To my surprise, this bold look got lots of love. Note to self: don’t be afraid to be different. That’s what makes us all unique. Dress like the special being that you are!
Is it me or do these pics have a slight Halloween vibe? Maybe it’s the location (the church at my alma mater, Cabrini College), or the the dark lip + dark hair + dark clothing. I tend to wear lighter colors close to my hair to brighten up my look, which is maybe why I naturally finished the outfit with an olive topper. Is there a color you avoid close to your face? For me, it’s usually black, since by hair is so dark and it’s just a whole lot of darkness.
H&M invited me to check out some new fashions that a stylish songstress also happens to wear, and she wears them oh-so well. H&M Loves Music has teamed up with Foxes (you may remember her voice from Zedd’s hit “Clarity”) to showcase just how well music and fashion go together.
This Independence Day I hopped on the Almay #SimplyAmerican tour bus for some pampering on the Parkway. I love my city. Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway turned into one of the biggest Fourth of July celebrations in the country called Wawa Welcome America. The all-day extravaganza, complete with music and food, was a pretty fun way to spend the holiday despite the weather being less than stellar. Thanks to Almay I was able to take refuge from the rain and get a little makeover.
Working on blog posts sure does help me in the outfit department. This Dare To Wear blog series challenges me to remix my style pairings and create more looks. The result, more outfit ideas at my fingertips for those busy days that leave little time for picking the perfect ensemble.
You may notice that this jumpsuit is Lilly Pulitzer for Target. I stumbled upon it a few weeks after the collection old out when I was visiting Target for organic chips and salsa (the pineapple salsa is SO good!). The jumpsuit fit and came home with me. Since then I’ve worn it to a luncheon, TV segment, and hanging around. I think with the vest is how I like it best.
I’ve been stocking up on summer styles lately and have been slaying it in snagging serious sales. First my visit to Shoe Carnival (giving away FREE SHOES tomorrow, stay tuned!!) and then my trip to the Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale. I was fortunate enough to score a pass to the friends & family day, which is the day before it opens to the public. That meant less crazy lines, more items to choose from (nothing was picked through yet!), and an additional 25% off! I paid more for my Lilly for Target jumpsuit than what I paid for most of the pieces I purchased.
It’s been a little while since I’ve linked back to my work over at TheFashionSpot.com, so I thought it’s time to share some of what I’ve been up to over there. I absolutely love contributing to tFS. I get to cover beauty, fashion, home decor, personal branding, recipes, pretty much whatever interests me. I’ll be adding in more lifestyle content on here so stay tuned, as there’s style in the word lifeSTYLE for a reason.
Love style and looking for something fun to do this weekend for FREE? Come hang out with Glamour Magazine and GQ . It’s the Simon Lookbook Live event at King of Prussia Mall this Saturday from 1-5pm and you’re invited!
Hello fabulous darling! It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, and today I’m talking (well, typing… ) all about a style rule to live by. Wear what YOU like. I follow it and it serves me well. In fact, it dawned on me when I was typing up the tips below. You see, first comes the outfits, then the tips. So that means I play dress up to figure out what I like.
