Ruffles and Polka Dots

Top: ASTR // Jeans: Good American // Bag: Free People // Mules: Chinese Laundry

Hello loves!

It’s that awkward time of year in New Jersey where one day it’s 70 degrees the next day it’s snowing! My go to outfit for spring when it’s on the warmer side is a pretty blouse, jeans and mules. Really simple yet put together! When I saw this top I knew I HAD to have it! Polka dots? Ruffles? Blush? It had my name written all over it! I’m loving so many items from ASTR’s spring line but this top is my absolute favorite!

Meet Me at the Barre

Hello loves, Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I hope you enjoyed today with a loved one/gal pal/dog, whoever! Today I wanted to talk to you guys about my new workout routine at Bar Method. For those of you that don’t know, I was a dancer for a majority of my life, so finding an exercise that also works on flexibility and balance was so amazing for me. This studio is seriously gorgeous, it even has a little sitting area with magazines and coffee! How great is that!?

Every class starts out with a warm up, including upper body exercises. Next, you’ll work on toning your legs and seat, finished off with ab work and a stretch. I’ve only been doing these classes for about 2 weeks now and I’m already noticing a difference!

What makes Bar Method so unique is that it was created under the guidance of physical therapists, so you know the workout is super safe. I’ve had my fair share of sports injuries so I have some bad joints/ligaments and it really gives me piece of mind knowing that I won’t injure myself. The instructors are all amazing and kind, pushing you to do the best you can! They will make adjustments through out the class to ensure you don’t hurt yourself and that you’re getting the most of each and every exercise.

The location I go to is in Morganville, New Jersey but they have tons of locations!

I hope you guys check out Bar Method, I’d love to hear how you liked it!

Spring Polka Dots

Dress: Privacy Please // Mules: Free People

Hello loves, happy Sunday!

I hope you all had a great weekend! We had some a ton of rain here in New Jersey this past weekend and it’s making me want spring weather! One of my favorite trends for spring this year is polka dots. At first I thought it might’ve looked too youthful, but styled correctly it can be super chic for spring. I ordered this dress from Revolve and I fell in love! I love how it can be casual with a pair of mules or dresses up with a pair heels, perfect for date nights in the spring with A denim jacket!

How do you guys like the polka dot trend? Love it or leave it? Let me know in the comments, thanks for stopping by!

One Year Blogiversary

You guys, I cannot believe today has officially been one year since I launched! First off, I wanted to thank all of you who have been following me over the year, all of your support really does mean the world to me!

I wanted to answer some questions along with what I have learned during my first year of blogging. There have been a lot of ups and downs, and I still have a ton of learning to do, but I want to share anything I can with you all!

Why I Started My Blog

Here’s a little background story of why I started this blog

Rewind to about a year ago: I was working at a job that I hated after being in and out of college for most of my early twenties. I still had no idea of what I wanted to do, but I did know that I needed something with a creative outlet. I have had a love for fashion for as long as I could remember but couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do with it. I started seeing a ton of fashion bloggers on Instagram and it inspired me so much. I thought about starting one for months before I actually worked up the courage to do it, it takes a lot to put yourself out there. So with that, I launched my blog and haven’t looked back since!

Here is some Q&A for questions I received about blogging:

Q: How do you stay organized?

A: It’s definitely not easy, especially since I work a full time job along with managing my blog. When you’re running any type of online business of your own you literally need to schedule your own hours! I plan most of my shoots/time writing blog posts on my days off or before or after work. I basically never stop!

Q: How do you grow a following?

A: First, let me start by saying that you should NEVER buy followers! It may seem like a good idea to get going but brands can always tell when your following isn’t authentic, and so will your real followers. My advice? Just stay true to your content and who are you are! Be yourself, engage with other bloggers, and the rest will come naturally.

Q: What’s your favorite part about blogging?

A: For me, my biggest reward in all of this is knowing I inspired someone on how to style something, outfit inspiration, or just that someone took away a piece of advice from someone I wrote. I’ve also met some really great people through blogging!

Q: How do you decide what brands to work with?

A: Before agreeing to work with a brand, I always research the brand and make sure it’s something that interests me and speaks to my blog. I’ve had some really great partnerships over the year and I can’t wait to see what partnerships I build going forward!

Q: What’s your biggest piece of advice for blogging?

A: Be YOU! It’s hard to not play the comparison game, “I wish I lived there, I wish I had that bag etc”. In a field that is over saturated there is always room for someone being their unique self. Always remember there will always be people that can relate to you!

I sincerely hope you guys have enjoyed following along with me over the past year! What type of posts do you want to see from me this year? Let me know in the comments!!

Denim on Denim

Shirt: J.Crew // Jeans: Good American // Glasses: Warby Parker // Mules: Free People

Hello and happy Monday loves!!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I know I did, because the Eagles won the Super Bowl! I’ll be honest I’m not that into football, but Kyle is a big eagles fan so if he’s happy, I’m happy haha.

Anywho, on to this outfit. I’ve always loved how other people pull off the denim on denim look but never knew if I could pull it off. Then I found this denim shirt from J.Crew and it’s seriously the perfect denim shirt! It looks stiff online/in pictures but it’s sooo soft and has that worn in feel which I love.

These jeans I bought last year from Good American and they fit like a glove. I don’t think I’ve ever found a denim brand that fit me better than Good American! These slides are from Free People and I am obsessed!! They’re so comfy and I love the white color for spring/summer. They also come in NINE different colors, so I’m thinking I need another pair!

How do you guys like to style denim on denim? Let me know in the comments, thanks for stopping by!

Accessorizing for Spring with Fossil

This blog post is sponsored by Fossil, all thoughts and options are my own*

Tee Shirt: Brunette the Label // Jeans: Levi’s // Bag: Fossil // Watch: Fossil // Sneakers: Adidas

Happy Friday babes!! One of my favorite colors to wear lately has been pink. Which is surprising, since I don’t really consider myself a “pink girl”. Maybe it’s because it’s the month of looove, or just that spring is getting closer. Either way I can’t get enough of the color lately!

Fossil has some AMAZING new accessories out for Valentine’s Day/ spring! I’m obsessed with this pink suede bag, it kind of reminds me of a Gucci bag but for a fraction of the price! This baby pink watch is so dainty and feminine, while still being simple and classic.

What are some of your favorite colors for spring 2018? Let me know in the comments, thanks for stopping by!

How to Style Overalls for Winter

Overalls: Madewell(old, similar here) // Cardigan: Madewell // Top: Madewell // Hat: Free People // Booties: Free People

Happy Sunday loves!

We had some warmer temperatures here in New Jersey this past weekend, finally! With the warmer weather I wanted to wear a light layered overalls look since you definitely didn’t need a puffy coat this weekend. Like many other things, the best way to style overalls for winter is lots of layers. I wore this turtleneck under the overalls, along with this cardigan to keep it cute and casual. To add some more winter cuteness to the outfit I wore my trusty Free People pom hat , I seriously can’t stop wearing it!!

How do you like to layer for winter? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello loves, happy Friday!

One of my goals for 2018 is to travel more. In 2017 I crossed Puerto Rico and Boston, Massachusetts off my list. Traveling has always been so important to me, I love to see new places and experience new things. So that being said I wanted to share my 2018 Dream Travel List with you!

Paris – This by far number one on my list of places I want to see! The culture, the history and HELLO the fashion!! If you couldn’t tell, my outfit on this post is inspired by Paris.

London – I’ve wanted to travel to London ever since I saw the Mary-Kate and Ashley movie London Calling! Did anyone else love that movie?!

Ireland – The sights in Ireland look like nothing else. It’s also the land of my people!(I’m mostly Irish)

California- I seriously want to go everywhere in California!! Los Angeles, San Fransisco, Orange County(because who didn’t want to be Summer Roberts on the tv show the OC?) just to name a few!

Disney – Ive been to Disney when I was little but I would love to go back as an adult with Kyle!

Thailand –  The beaches in Thailand look UNREAL. I’m also a huge elephant lover and would love to go see the elephant sanctuary.

Colorado – I’ve never been on a ski trip, and I’d love to hit the slopes with Kyle this year!

Maui, Hawaii – I went to Oahu a few years ago and I fell in loveee with Hawaii. I’m dying to go back and explore Maui.

What are some of your dream travel destination? I’d love to hear them in the comments! Thanks for reading,
