Currently Craving Fall Clothes

Can you believe we are already to the last days of summer? As much as this New Jersey 85 degree weather does not feel like fall, I know it is fast approaching. Not only that, but stores will start taking out their fall clothes and putting in Winter clothes before you know it. Don't do what I did last year, and wait until the last minute. The best items will be sold out, and you'll be kicking yourself for waiting too long. Plus this is probably one of my favorite seasons to shop for! I struggle with summer because my wardrobe is so limited. In the fall however, I can layer however I want. 

I put together this collage of my favorite fall must-haves, for those of you girls who want something a little different than the typical wardrobe staples. These are gorgeous stand out items with beautiful details, that'll make any girl stand out. I am absolutely loving floral for fall trend this year, and pairing these items with bold colors. This floral peasant top, and pleated faux suede skirt. How darling would this outfit be with these cognac open toe booties? I die at the cuteness! Another trend I'm loving is fall colored jumpsuits and Chunky heeled booties (especially if they are lace up). 

I hope you all enjoyed todays post. Stay tuned for my roundup of the best fall wardrobe staples you'll wear all season long!

Back to School Shoes for the Family

I absolutely love transitioning summer wardrobes to fall,  especially for my boys. We got a glimpse of gorgeous breezy weather a few days ago, and took full advantage of having the boys try out their new back to school shoes from Payless Shoes.

Alaska in the Summer

Alaska is absolutely beautiful. There were so many times I thought, "my goodness, this is so beautiful I should take a picture." The images never quite did the scenery justice, and the mountains are simply majestic and so much more beautiful in person. My husband and I made a list of the things we wanted to do most while in Alaska. Top on my list was going to Eklutna Lake. We stopped by a couple years ago in October and it was freezing. Even though there was snow on the ground and ice on the lake, it was still overwhelmingly gorgeous. I could only imagine how it would look in the summer. Boy did it not disappoint. Stunning aqua blue water surrounding  giant and marvelous mountains.

Beat the Heat with Babble Boxx

The past few weeks here in Jersey have been brutally hot. So much so, that I have to carry around a water bottle everywhere I go. So, as you can imagine; I was pleasantly surprised when my new Babble Boxx arrived, full of summer goodies made to beat the heat! From fruity drinks, flirty fragrances, to the cutest summer shades of nail polish. It was love at first sight!


Back to School with Payless Shoes

 My heavens, can you believe its already back to school time? I have to admit, I think its a little unfair to start school when its still technically Summer. I mean, what's up with that? Can't they wait at least a couple more weeks? Luckily my kids don't start until September, but all of my friends kids have already started.

White Lace Dolly Top with Chicwish

Well, we are finally back from Alaska! It was an absolute blast spending time with friends and family while enjoying the outdoors. I will say I am glad to be back though. The boys missed home, and I missed our schedules. I just wish we could get back on NJ time, because here I am at 1 am writing a blog post and catching up on Bachelor in Paradise. Please tell me I'm not the only one who watches this? Its so bad, yet so good!

A Light and Airy Living Room Reveal

I cannot believe the time has finally come to share my full living room reveal with you all. Let me tell you, this has been a long time coming, and I am thrilled to finally have it all finished. I cant tell you how many times items turned up broken, the wrong color, or just ended up not being what I was looking for. There was and still is so much to learn about interior decorating, but it was something I realized I loved and had such a passion for. Here are my biggest tips for anyone wanting to redecorate their home. I honestly wish someone had written these all down for me before I began, because it would have saved me A LOT of time!

Friendship Bracelets with Links of London

Today I am excited to be sharing my Friendship Story with Links of London. They say that you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. So, I try to spend my time around people who are positive, have good values, and continually lift others up. My blogger bestie Kaitlin is all of the above and then some. She is one of the most kind hearted, and genuine girls I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. We met at NYFW last September and became quick friends after that. We started going to weekly events in New York together, and later roomed together at February Fashion Week. We could tell you some pretty funny stories about our adventures together, and have had a lot of good laughs. 

These friendship bracelets are a little reminder of just that, and they are absolutely gorgeous. These beauties are not your ordinary friendship bracelet; they are great quality and perfect for stacking or wearing alone. I've worn mine almost every day, and I love that they are adjustable making them super comfortable with no flopping around on my wrist. I know thats not a big deal for a lot of people, but for me it was huge. We both chose this gorgeous rose gold option, which I personally thought was perfect for fall. Not only that, but they make an amazing gift for your bestie.

#NSale Last Days Final Picks

Greetings from Alaska! After two long days of flying, we have made it safely to Alaska. After our first flight from NJ to UT, they flight attendant announced that they needed 14 people to switch flights because it was overbooked. My husband and I volunteered and received $800 flight voucher for each of us for doing so. Since we have so many trips coming up within the next few months, it was an offer we couldn't refuse. So, we stayed the night with family there, and caught the next flight out the following morning. I must say it feels good to be in cooler weather we little to no humidity. Also, its not supposed to be over 65 degree this week, so you know what that means? FALL CLOTHES!! After shopping the #NSale, ive been dying to wear my new fall cardigans,  tunics, and booties

With only 4 days left of the infamous Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, your time to save is of the essence. Every year I stock up on my fall and winter favorites, and always wear them on repeat all season. When it comes to this sale, its all about quality. You wont get better quality items for this price, so make sure and act fast before prices go up. 

Today im sharing this outfit that is almost completely from the NSale. This perfect Roll Tab Tunic is one of my favorites, comes in 5 other colors, and is on sale for only $27.90. This distressed denim is finally back in stock in all sizes, and is only $44.90. Seriously, the fit is too adorable and are some of the most flattering denim I own right now. I could go on and on, but instead ill just say, thank goodness for fall clothes. Gimme all the layers!

The Perfect Denim with NY&CO

Happy Tuesday! Is it just me, or did the weekend just fly by? We've been extra busy over here grabbing last minute items for our trip to Alaska tomorrow. I am so excited for a vacation with my family, but also feeling overwhelmed because there is still so much to do. Also, not so much looking forward to 12+ hours of flying with two kids. 

Aside from that fact that my life is a little chaotic right now, I had to share with you this adorable outfit from New York and Company. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried on this pair of Jennifer Hudson Soho Denim, and found that they were stretchy, comfortable, and slimming as can be. In fact, I loved them so much; I was tempted to have her ring me up right then and there, so I could wear them out of the store! I paired them with this darling Tie-Waist Wrap Blouse, and the most adorable Tassel Trim Sandals to give it more of a fall transitional look. Did I mention this Tassel Trimmed Tote matches the shoes perfectly? Because they do, and I'm kind of in love with both. 

I hope you all enjoy todays post, see below for an amazing giveaway!!!

Best #NSale Outfits and a GIVEAWAY

There are only a few days left of the infamous #NSale! It has been so much fun stocking up on my fall wardrobe, and has me longing for cooler days with this heat wave we're going through. Okay, I take that back. Im loving this warmer weather even though its 90 and HUMID here, just because I get to be with my kiddos and play outside all day. Not to mention, I am so not looking forward to cold/flu season. So, I guess there are pros and cons to both. Okay, now I'm just rambling incessantly. The biggest pro for me is getting to switch out my summer wardrobe- to fall. I always have so much more fun layering, and adding fun accessories like; scarves, gloves, and beanies as it gets cooler. 

 So, to help you pull some inspiration; i've put together this post full of fall outfits you are sure to love. Oh, and the best part? Im linking to similar/almost identical items all from the #NSale! If I can't find items for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, ill try my best to link to only items that are marked down from their original price, or are really good price in general. Some items I love and am absolutely shocked are still in stock- these gorgeous black over the knee boots, this fall staple army green jacket, and open front fall colored cardigans are a must have in my book. I've done all the work for you, and your wallet will thank me! ;) Happy Shopping!
