Pre-Fall Clothing Haul

Hi loves!

I recently did some online and in store shopping for back to school! Honestly, most schools probably don’t let you wear some of this stuff due to strict dress codes but a little unnecessary shopping never hurt nobody… I hope.

LA Beach Outfit

whats up girlies?! 

I'm sitting here (sweaty and in a sports bra), back in NJ, Pinterest-ing and putting off unpacking and cleaning.  So instead of getting my act together, I'd rather pretend I'm still on vacation and share some deets from one of my favorite outfits.

IMG_3829    When it's hot and humid out this top is my go-to, it's from Free People and I have it in 2 colors because I love it so much.

IMG_3826My bikini top is Maaji and this thing is so secure and comfortable! Zero padding but lots of straps means no wardrobe malfunctions in front of the entire children's camp behind me, lol.

To pull the look together I threw on some white shorts, which didn't stay on much longer after this pic was taken.  Mine are Michael Kors but any pair will give the same look. All of my bracelets are from the local shops in town (Udderly Perfect & Nikau Kai) and, of course I have my Ray-Bans on- which are custom so shop this similar pair.



I just wanna say a huge THANK YOU to all of you guys who have been reading and following my blog! I have really been stepping up my game and workin' my booty off and your positive feedback is so appreciated!

I have so many new ideas coming and I cannot wait to share everything with y'all! I've also been super active on my twitter and it's definitely the most interactive social to connect with you honeys so follow me on there!

For all of my NY babes, I'm planning on shooting there soon so please send your location recs my way!

And lastly, I'm planning on investing in a web designer within the next few months so if you have any good recommendations please let me know about them!


Holiday Gift Guide: Everything Under $100

The holidays are time for giving, and I love gifting presents for the people in my life that I love! To kick off the holiday season, I’ve created the perfect guide for any lady in your life, whether it be your sister, your best friend, your mom, or any other special gal!

Fall Shoe Guide: My Favorites

It’s no secret that fall is the time to transition from bikinis and dresses, to layers and boots. I love fall because it’s easier to amp up your fashion sense and really add those minor details to pull your look together. My favorite way to accessorize an outfit is with my shoes! I’ve grown up with my fashionable mama who LOVES a good shoe (if you know her you know exactly what I’m talking about). Unfortunately for my wallet… I inherited that obsession.

I created a shoe guide just for you guys all about what shoes you should be rocking this fall! I’m also going to include some shoes that are on my current wishlist that hopefully I will get.

Thanksgiving Outfits

Thanksgiving is all about being grateful and giving thanks for everyone and everything we have in our lives. It’s also an opportunity to get the whole family together, enjoy a delicious meal, and take pictures. I’m no chef, so I’ll stick to helping you guys out on the fashion end, because we all know fall is the best time of the year for layering and looking cute!

Last Minute Halloween Costumes

When we were all in elementary school, everyone knew exactly what they were going to dress up as for Halloween by September… but, once we get into high school, most of us procrastinate with our costumes just like we procrastinate with everything else. If you still have no clue what you want to be for Halloween, don’t worry I gotcha covered. Check out some of these super last minute costume ideas down below.

I used Polyvore to make all of these outfits so make sure you click on the links to find exact clothing pieces.


Pirate: This costume is soo easy, all you need is a pair of black jeans or leggings (which you probably already own), any flowy white top or one of the lace up tops that are super trendy right now, and a pirate sword which you can find at any halloween store. I paired it with some tall black boots which you, or one of your friends probably have, and any red, green, or blue scarf to wrap around your head and voilaaa, you are a pirate!

80’s Girl: Oh my god I loveee this costume I think it’s so so fun!!! To recreate this look, go into your closet and find everything neon you own. I would wear these hot pink leggings, but any colored leggings will work, a leotard/bodysuit on top of the leggings (this metallic one is PERFECT) and a loose crop top over it. You probably have some random tee shirt that you cut like this from years ago and it is awesome with this look. Because you probably won’t be wearing this stuff many more times in your life, try not to spend too much money on it and look around your house and ask your friends before going to a store! I would put my hair in a big side pony on the top of my head with a scrunchie and pair the outfit with some simple white sneakers or any white shoes. *also it’s a plus in you find some leg warmers but those aren’t essential*

70’s Girl: If you’re like me, you probably own most of this stuff!! All you need is some bell bottom pants/jeans, a flowy top, and some round sunglasses. To make the outfit a little more complete, pair it with some sandals, braided headbands, and a peace sign necklace. This costume is SO. EASY.

Cher Horowitz (Clueless): This is by far my favorite costume because I loveee the movie Clueless!!! I chose this look inspired from the scene in class where she drops her pink pen. The major piece you need is the pink plaid skirt, mine is from amazon and was super cheap, pair it with any white cropped tee, and some retro white pumps, these are from overstock (link on my polyvore). Because I’m detail oriented, I added a short gold necklace like the one she was wearing.


Sandy (Grease): Who doesn’t love this scene from Grease? It is so iconic so if you wear this, you better be walking around channeling your inner Sandy. This costume might be the trickiest but is so worth it. Pair an off the shoulder black bodysuit or top (mine is from amazon and is so cheap) with some pleather leggings and red heels. Personally, there is no way I’d be able to survive wearing pumps all night so I’d rock a pair of red sandals or sneakers (lol). Add a black and gold belt and some big gold hoops with red lips. Make sure you have the tightest curls too!

I tried to give you guys some really inexpensive options because no one should be spending that much money on one night!! Make sure you stay safe and stay looking cuuuttteee! Send me pictures on my social media if you end up rocking any of these looks!
