As promised, I am back again featuring Candice Lou Boutique.
In case you missed it, visit HERE to see the adorable two-piece ensemble I featured last week from this affordable online boutique. Sadly, the ruffle denim blouse below is currently sold out (will hopefully be back in soon) BUT I am highlighting some brand new stock that is DROP. DEAD. ADORABLE. Both blouses pair perfectly with white jeans for a polished summer look. I also would pair with distressed denim…shocker…..for a slightly edgier vibe. This dress in the middle compliments a summertime tan and I love the unique cutouts at the hemline. #happyshopping
My husband and I had two surprise birthday parties to attend over the weekend. First up, we celebrated our friend Breanne at Skratch. This is a chill neighborhood spot with delicious eats in downtown Asbury Park. We love the chicken and waffles…yum! Then we hit the road into NYC for an overnight at The Maritime Hotel. This hotel was super cool…decorated as though you were on a cruise ship, but the real standout was La Sirena. This Italian dream of a restaurant is the prettiest I have had the pleasure of dining at, that didn’t include a waterview. Food was incredible and fresh squeezed orange juice ALWAYS makes for a fabulous 007:) The party for our friend Terri was held at Tao Downtown and then we all filtered into the Tao Nightclub. We were ushered in…after our meal…..through a backdoor “GoodFellas” style….and when I entered, there was a ridiculous remix of Heartbreaker by Mariah playing…..need I say more? It was an epic weekend. I am exhausted and yet so incredibly thankful to have such substance filled, positive, loving friends in our lives.
My husband has always called New Jersey home. Despite being born here and having much extended family here, I grew up in Northern Virginia and always considered that my hometown. After getting married ten years ago, we spent six years in Philadelphia and grew very attached to that city. It was hard to decide where we wanted to raise our growing family. Part of us wanted to have our kids experience the diversity and culture that a city provides but ultimately we moved to the Jersey Shore where our parents, sisters and brothers reside. We decided family trumps all. I can’t tell a lie….it took some getting used to. We have been in New Jersey for almost seven years, and this weekend really solidified that this is our home….where we have set our roots not only with our families but with our extended families…our friends. #friendsarefamily
So, after all that…lets get to the style! #thatsprobablywhyyouarehere
Summer is officially in full swing….so I switched out my blush shade. I am extremely smitten with this Posey baked blush from Tica Cosmetics and wanted to share it with you. #pocketfullofposey
Nights at the Jersey Shore can definitely be on the cooler side so I love rocking a summer sweater. I skipped the layering tank and paired it with a sport styled bra for some sex appeal. The gladiators don’t hurt either. #thirtysomethingsexy
I wanted to mix comfort and style for our NYC day lunch date. There is nothing more comfortable than these white jeans and these new Juro Slide Sandal from Vionic Shoes are not only insanely comfortable but so darn CUTE, no? I have a feeling you will be seeing these ALOT on my socials. #justslideonandgo
I have been waiting to wear this bodycon dress by my favorite designer Nicole Miller since I got this NYC invitation. I paired it with simple accessories and shoes because this is the kind of dress that steals the show. #sometimesitsjustaboutthedress
