Transition to Fall with Daniel Rainn

Life is crazy right now.  I suppose we could call it good crazy, but it sure doesn’t feel like that.  We are moving and our closing date which has been set for weeks, is now being pushed back due to lack of preparation on the buyers side.  Normally, this wouldn’t be a huge deal, I guess….but being the end of the month our moving company is not able to adjust AND being that school starts in 2 weeks…it is becoming more than just stressful.  I know, I know, all I should really need is my health and family but it turns out that I can get real “hangry” when I so desperately want a piece of toast and a cup of coffee and EVERYTHING IS PACKED IN BOXES.

You have had enough of my whining (me too) so let’s just move on to the pretty clothes.  One of my favorite boutique brands is most definitely Daniel Rainn.  They have the most beautiful bohemian prints put to pretty blouses and easy to wear dresses.  Perfect for work OR play, I have styled two of my favorite “transition to fall” pieces below.  I hope you find some outfit inspiration.

Styling a Lace Bra with Wacoal

All above bras available at Wacoal Short Hills.  Call (855) 215-5445


Last week I shared my bra fitting experience  at the new flagship Wacoal Short Hills. My bust is elated for the lift and I am happy to finally be wearing the appropriate bra size.  The two classic bras photographed above are definitely going to be my “bread and butter”.  Lightly padded in the two colors I wear most, they are extremely comfortable and supportive.  I also left the store with two FUN lingerie pieces. The Wacoal brand truly has something for everyone and my more playful side happily obliged in styling two lacy numbers for you!

Hope you find some outfit inspiration.

Wacoal Short Hills: My Bra Fitting Experience

Hello my fashion friends!  Summer vacation is in full swing here at the Jersey Shore and I have been enjoying some time off with my little guys.  Our summer has been packed full of tennis, pool, ,beach, surfing, basketball and plain old FUN.  It has been NONSTOP but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I hope you are enjoying your summer as much as we are:)

Monday, I took a break from sun and sand to head to the beautiful Short Hills Mall.  Arguably one of the best malls on the East Coast, why wouldn’t Wacoal want to open a flagship location?  So, in early March, the powerhouse lingerie brand did just that.  It is my true pleasure to showcase the NEW flagship location of Wacoal at the Short Hills Mall.



After a warm greeting and getting a smidge caught up in all the prettiness, we hit the dressing rooms for my “Bra Fitting”. I have never had a fitting before and was extremely curious about the outcome.  In the past, I would just “try and buy” based on what felt right or looked pretty.  I was surprised to discover that I am a 32B NOT a 34B, which I have been wearing for close to twenty years!

Candidly, I almost didn’t believe her.  I mean a 32 sounded SO small?  We roamed the sales floor and picked out TONS of bras to try.  I tried classics, padded, lined, underwire, lacy, smooth….you name it, we tried it!  Ultimately she was DEAD ON.  The 32B offered more support and lifted my bust more than any other bra I have ever known.  The STAND OUT of the day was definitely the below braletteI am obsessed with its comfort AND pretty lace details!

Call the Store to special order! (855) 215-5445


I know you are extremely curious what I left with? Stay tuned for my NEXT post….I will be showcasing two classics that need to be in your lingerie wardrobe AND two super sexy pieces that will be styled creatively into my outfits!
