The 1940’s Inspired Romper

I love rompers. I was slightly obsessed with them about 5 years ago, then after having my mastectomy in 2015, I wound up donating them all. Looking back on that time, I regret donating just about everything in my summer wardrobe. Since then, I’ve been slowly rebuilding my wardrobe yet at the same time, it’s …

Tea for One & One for Tea

I’m back from my vacation and truly, I need a vacation from my vacation. As I’ve said these last few days, Disney is an experience, not a vacation. Epcot is always one of my favorite places to visit.

The black and …

There is something about a rainy series of days that makes me feel so tired and unmotivated to do anything. My attire consisted of workout …

Vivid Coral

There is only one bold lip color I love wearing during the warmer months–vivid corals. I find that they’re the most becoming on my skintone–specifically this intense lip butter from NYX in Summer Fruit. It’s a gorgeous bright corally red that pairs nicely with a lightly smokey bronzed eye makeup. Truly, this is the perfect …

The Emerald Maxi

As I like to joke–this dress had it’s moment last weekend at my daughter’s birthday party. I love maxi dresses and practically live in them during the spring, summer and fall months. First & foremost, they’re comfortable. Secondly, they’re extremely versatile–dress it up or down. Done. This dress in particular is a convertible maxi dress …
