Elephant shorts

Shop the look: Guess what? There are elephants on my shorts! How fun is that? I know I’ve said I hate wearing shorts, multiple times, but I’m starting to change my mind after living in these comfy elephant shorts for the weekend. Cloth shorts are seriously the answer to all my shorts problems! I went camping with my family last weekend, and comfort was the name of the game. (If you missed the photo gallery I put together on that,… Read more »

The North Woods

This weekend I ventured to a place where I had no access to social media, no cell phone reception and no traffic – it was heavenly. It was just my family, the puppies and my husband and I all spending a lovely weekend in The North Woods. I’m now back in Jersey where we have lots of traffic, cell phone reception and access to social media. So, to relive my little getaway from civilization I decided to share my photos… Read more »

Black Swan skirt

There are some outfits that are worth waiting for – and I waited months before I finally broke out this one. I fell in love with this black swan skirt from Shein and have been waiting until the stars aligned before I wore it out. That happened when I received this gorgeous, silk scarf from Demon TZ. The two pieces matched perfectly, and it was just what I was looking for to complete this outfit. This is actually my first… Read more »

Tatyana Boutique fan skirt

By the time I was done taking photos for this post I could hardly stand up straight because I was so dizzy. Haha. But my husband was determined to get at least one photo of me twirling in this skirt where I didn’t look like I had just escaped from a mental institute. This skirt is a blast to twirl in, so I didn’t mind spinning around hundreds of times…even if I had an audience. I was in Central Park… Read more »

China: Through the Looking Glass

To break up our usual Sunday ritual of going to the gym and then binge watching Netflix, my husband and I decided to head into the city and explore The Met for the day. I’ve been dying to see their collection of Egyptian Art and their exhibit “China: Through the Looking Glass.” I will be breaking this post into 3 parts, based on the exhibits we toured, starting with “China: Through the Looking Glass” and ending with “Arms & Armor.”… Read more »

Hot Kiss dress

If asked what my favorite color is, I will always say pink. However, I don’t actually own all that much for pink clothing…or pink anything, really. I tend to gravitate more toward black clothing. Doesn’t exactly make sense, does it? So, when Hot Kiss Clothing was so kind as to send me this cute, pink (and incredibly soft) sundress… I realized this was something that needed to change – immediately. I started with picking up this hot pink shade of… Read more »

I am coming up on my one year blogging anniversary! I can’t believe how far this site has come in just one year. And to say thank you to everyone who has followed along as I figured out my way in this crazy blogging world, and to maybe gain… Read more »

ModCloth Octopus top

Shop the look: As children (even as adults) when asked what our favorite sea creature is, the answer is almost always “dolphins” or “sharks” or “turtles.” I have yet to encounter someone who shares my obsession with octopuses. However, they must be out there…because there is now a wide variety of octopus clothing, accessories and home decor to choose from – much to my delight. For me, the octopus is quite majestic and mystical. Maybe it’s the tentacles, the black… Read more »

Modcloth skirt

Shop the look: The title of this outfit post makes it sound as though I went hiking through the African Safari or bungee jumping off a cliff. Which is a bit misleading, I will admit. In reality, I just went and had a beer and some pizza and then finally went to see Jurassic World (and absolutely loved it!). But this outfit does, for some reason, make me feel as though I could go hiking through the desert or rock… Read more »

Retro travel clothes

When it comes to traveling there is nothing more important than being comfortable – especially in the warm summer months. However, you don’t have to sacrifice style in the name of comfort. There are several things I like to keep in mind when dressing for summer travel: 1.) Comfortable shoes – I’m going to be walking all day! 2.) Make sure my armpits are exposed – nothing is worse than having a clingy shirt around my sweaty pits! 3.) Use… Read more »

Shop the look: I can’t believe how fast summer is going! I feel as though I blinked and June was over…and it’s now the weekend of the 4th! Which of course means you need to be decked out in your best red, white and blue attire. I did an outfit post a few weeks ago on one of my favorite red, white and blue outfits. However, I had one more occasion to be patriotic for. This outfit was for Golfing… Read more »

However, most importantly, thank you to A.J. and Megan Griesbach who put this… Read more »

This is an outfit I can’t take credit for putting together. My husband and friends all had a hand in this one. My husband had bought me this awesome Jump From Paper purse for my birthday, and then went shopping for this skirt and top, so, I would have an outfit to match my new little purse. (He’s a keeper!) My cousin, Mandie, and friend, Ashlee, both sent me links to these awesome heels I am wearing…they had immediately thought… Read more »

FTC Disclosure: Thank you to eShakti for sending me this dress to feature on my blog. All opinions are my own, and I am not being compensated for a positive review. Some links may be affiliate links. Shop the look: Unassuming, dainty and cheerful, the daisy is not as ostentatious as a lily or fragrant as a rose. They subtlety brighten a room without commanding attention. If there was ever a flower I would want to emulate – it would be… Read more »

Today is my husband Zac’s 27th birthday! Happy birthday to the best husband in the world! We spent the weekend celebrating this special occasion. He LOVES to fish and has never been fishing on the ocean. So, we booked a charter trip with some friends through Jersey Key Fishing in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey. It was so awesome! This post is basically an excuse to show off some of our fishing pictures from the weekend. Haha. I apologize for the… Read more »

Shop the look: It has been years since I was last on an actual oceanside beach. I’m pretty sure the last time was in Goa – which is already two years ago! Thankfully, that dry spell came to an end this weekend. My husband and I ventured out to Manasquan Beach and had a wonderfully relaxing time. (If you’re looking for a gorgeous, quiet beach on the Jersey Shore – I highly recommend this one.) And what better time to… Read more »

*This is a post I did last September that I am digging back up. And just a warning, this is not my usual outfit or travel post, so, prepare yourself. (I am just too excited not to share this with you all!) I have never been considered athletic or coordinated in my entire life. However, this past weekend I proved to everyone, and mainly myself, that with enough determination and hard work I could be an athlete. I successfully ran… Read more »

Shop the look: I may be a bit early to this party, but I’m showing off my best patriotic look for this post! Why wait until the Fourth of July? This dress had been the result of a maxi skirt/dress buying binge I went on before I left for India. We weren’t able to wear anything that went above our knees, and wearing pants in 90+ degree weather seemed like an awful idea. Maxi dresses and skirts were the most… Read more »

Shop the look: “Matchy-matchy” is usually used as a negative term, but I don’t think there is any such thing as “too color coordinated.” I am all for seeing just how “matchy-matchy” I can make an outfit. This particular one was a bit of a happy accident..I had no idea I had so many accessories that were the same shade of red – even my nail polish and lipstick were the same shade! This outfit all started with my red… Read more »

sheinside skirt

Shop the look: This outfit had indeed caught the eye of many of the people I encountered while wearing it. Some folks were sneaky about their glances, while others were openly gaping…trying to figure out what kind of event I was dressed for (at least that’s what I think they were thinking). The looks could have something to do with my enormous sun hat or brightly colored midi skirt… or maybe it’s because I walk like a newborn calf in… Read more »

*If you like this post, it is now available on iTunes as a self-guided walking tour! Click here to download it. There are not many things in life that bring me quite as much happiness as the soft scent of lilacs tickling my nose in the breeze… or seeing the vibrant colors of tulips blooming in triumph, after patiently waiting for the frosts of winter to disperse. Flowers are one of the many joys of spring, and I have been… Read more »

If you need more info on the stylish surprise event, just keep scrolling. 🙂 Shop the look: Surprises can evoke a myriad of emotions in a person.
