SET THE SCENE- WEDDING PLANNING!

wedding

 We all have that picture perfect wedding in mind and for me, I know I plan to have that fairy tale ending on that special day spent with close friends and family. I was really ecstatic when Lover.ly asked me to create my ideal wedding day. Lover.ly is a great website that basically helps take the stress out of wedding planning.  You can browse through their site to look for almost everything you would need for your wedding- from a wedding gown to the bridesmaids dresses and any other necessities. I was asked to choose from three kinds of settings- city glam, beach affair or rustic chic. Growing up near NYC all my life, I chose a city glam setting and above is my ideal kind of wedding. I love a sleek lace wedding dress. Instead of your typical wedding veil, I want a chic and sparkly headpiece because NYC is all about on trend styles. Just like every other girl, I want to feel like a princess on my wedding day and when the time comes to plan my own wedding, I know it will be the best day (minus all the stress of planning it!!)

If only Summer could last forever so I can be on the beach every weekend playing in the sand. I am enjoying every last bit of my summer days as I slowly transition my wardrobe for fall. I wanted to do one last swim post before I start worrying about incorporating layers into my outfits. I wanted to keep this swim outfit simple by just adding gold jewelry and a fun temporary tattoo. Besides, that's what summer is all about...simple and carefree living! I hope everyone has exciting plans for Labor Day Weekend! Happy Wednesday!!

I explored the West Village last weekend with Louisa and discovered some really cute spots to shoot for my blog. I have to admit that I usually am never around the East or West Village that often so I felt like a tourist when I found some cool spots that I'm sure most New Yorkers already knew about. I stopped by The Little Owl which is a really cute restaurant that is located right under the famous television show Friends apartment building.  Feeling like a tourist, I had to snap a quick picture! Whenever I feel like exploring NYC, I like sticking to an outfit that will be comfortable but still fun and chic. This Show Me Your MuMu is the perfect summer color. As I've mentioned before in past posts, I love bright colors during the summer and this top is a great summer basic that I can wear to work or on the weekends!  I also always need a great handbag that is not too big or too small and discovered Lauren Cecchi handbags. I absolutely adore her line because every handbag is simple and classic. Crafted in NYC, every piece is made with fine quality leather and I know a bag like this is something that will never go out of style.

FRIDAY FINDS- LABOR DAY

Sadly enough Labor Day is right around the corner and the thought of summer and my summer Friday's (getting out of work by 1) ending is quite sad. I'm going to miss being at the beach, getting tan, and the nice weather but I have to admit I am definitely looking forward to Fall fashion! So wherever you're spending your last summer weekend, below are some of my favorite picks for a fun filled and stylish Labor Day weekend!

ORANGE & RED







HAUTE HIPPIE dress | ALDO heels (similar here) | AARAA necklace

As fall slowly approaches us, I am enjoying every bit of summer before I start transitioning my wardrobe to all things black, leather, and oversized sweaters. Summer is all about fun bright colors and this Haute Hippie orange dress is like a splash of sunshine. The silk fabric makes this dress feel airy and light. Instead of sticking to black or nude heels, I wanted this outfit to pop even more with these amazing red caged heels. At first, I did not think this color combination would work but after putting everything on, I loved how both the heels and dress stood out and made the outfit pop!
