Happy Friday!!

I hope everyone has a fun and or relaxing weekend ahead.  I get to spend the day with my girl tomorrow getting Easter goodies together.  🙂

While I’ll be blogging about our Easter too, I wanted to share a recent outfit that I put together for a day out. I am in love with this top from OLD Navy.  It comes in three prints and is under $10!!

I’ve been feeling very summery lately and I feel like nothing gives off a better summer vibe than a Panama hat!

The Striped Dolman Sleeve Dress of My Dreams

dolman-sleeve-dress

Happy Hump Day! Today’s topic is quite a mouthful but you’ll want to know the term “dolman sleeve dress” for the next time you go shopping.

I am excited to share this striped dolman sleeve dress from ILY Couture with you . This dress also comes in black and blue, which really tempts me since I am OBSESSED!  It is extremely soft and so comfortable. Best part: It is only $48! You can pair it with sandals for a casual look or dress it up with some fun wedges.  If stripes aren’t your thing, they also have a similar solid dress here that comes in several colors.

Check out how I styled this look below:

And we can’t forget about the little details, so here are some things I couldn’t forget to mention.  I LOVE this Bobbi Brown lipgloss, which I had on throughout the day.  It feels amazing on my lips. Other pros include great coverage and a slightly minty so  I highly recommend it!

I find that gold jewelry and tassels work best with this outfit, especially since the necklace hangs down low enough to bring some structure to the dress. A quilted Rebecca Minkoff flap bag is also the perfect accessory since it’s luxuriously reminiscent of Chanel without the hefty pricetag!

The Sarasota Sequin Dress


Hello everyone and Happy Sunday!

Ready for another week??  I’m not so sure if I am or not, but nothing a lot of coffee and a little Rosé can’t help me through. And this perfect sequin dress definitely perked me up as well! 🙂

I have been looking forward to sharing this sequin dress on the blog.  It is so easy to wear, especially during the warmer months and this shade of yellow is complimentary to many skin tones and bright-colored accessories. Naturally, I went for this cheery sequin dress for an afternoon in Sarasota by the water, so I like to think of this as my “Sarasota Sequin Dress” because it went so perfectly with the occasion.

I have less than a week to get together and organize Easter baskets.  We are Greek Orthodox, so our Easter falls on a different date most of the time.  Andi’s Godmother, Eleni, decided to take her to church this morning for Palm Sunday. Andi was not happy missing her morning nap. Don’t feel too bad for her though; she got to spend the rest of the day swimming and playing outside.  🙂

 

Have a great night!

When the photos were taken, Andi couldn’t quite sit up on her own.  I love the photo of Anthony holding her up with the little leaf in her hand.

We also had some photos taken of Andi in her baptismal gown just because almost all of the ones we took on the actual day she was baptized she was crying. I have to admit, those are wonderfully memorable but these came out so beautifully! 🙂

Traveling with a Baby: Andi’s First Trip to the Beach!

beach-baby

Hi everyone!

I am excited to share photos from Andi’s first trip to the beach!  Traveling with a baby can be a little tricky at times, and she was a little unsure at first. Slowly by surely, though, she warmed up to the concept of the waves splashing us.  I wouldn’t say the beach is Andi approved just yet… but it was a good start! 🙂

Crop Tops and Bold Patterns

Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a great weekend.  The weather was perfect for me to break out this adorable mini skirt.  Pineapples and bold patterns, in general, are everywhere this season, and I love it!  I have paired my skirt with this lace crop top from Lilly Pulitzer.

These bold patterns aren’t something to shy away from even if you’re a shy person! Embrace the pops of color and put some fun into your wardrobe with any of the patterns that are popular this season. From stripes, kitschy patterns, or the much-loved pineapple print, you may love the boost of energy that comes with incorporating these bold patterns into your current rotation.

We’re Both Beach Ready!

Good evening and happy Monday!

I hope everyone is having a nice week so far.  Andi and I went shopping for swimsuits today.  We are going to take her to the beach for the first time this weekend, so she needed a swim suit.  🙂 Can I just say that baby girl bathing suits are the cutest things ever?!  She ended up with 4 suits, two hats, a coverup and pair of sunglasses. Here is a sneak peek of one of them: Pineapple Tutu swimsuit.

Andi had a little more luck than I did on our shopping trip, like I said: baby girl bathing suits are too cute. But I did score this macramé tank from Victoria’s Secret. I plan on pairing it with linen pants this summer.

Baubles and Chloé Wedges

Hi everyone!

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend. Andi is getting in 4 of her top teeth, so today was a little rough for everyone.  We decided to get out of the house and go to the park for a little stroll. It is a little cooler outside than it has been so that was really refreshing.  We finished the evening off by picking up some take out and that was a nice way to wind down from a crazy week.

Tonight I wore this double strap tank from TOPSHOP and paired it with one of my favorite white skinny jeans from Nordstrom. I am obsessing over these wedges by Chloé.  But, if you’re interested in getting them, keep in mind that they run small! I had to go up one whole size – eep!  They are super comfortable, though, so I was able to wear them all day yesterday!

Bonus points: you can get the same look here for much less!

I also like to pay attention to the little details when I’m putting an outfit together, so I picked up these cute earrings from the BaubleBar to finish off the look. They’re luxe and glam and the perfect way to add a little sparkle and shine to any outfit!

Day at the Park: Trendy Colors and Gorgeous Weather

 

It’s almost Friday! Yay!  We decided to take a large towel and some of Andi’s favorite toys and spend the day at the park.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day and the perfect time to get some great photos. It’s incredible how much Andi really enjoys spending time outdoors, taking in the sun, and playing with her favorite toys.

And now to my outfit! I made sure to keep things comfy today without sacrificing style during our day at the park. My Steve Madden flats were perfect for being on the move and they were the perfect complement to an otherwise classic outfit of white pants and a gorgeous striped top. Both Andi and I sported some of this seasons’ hottest trends: stripes and mint green!
