Hot Pink Moto and Navy Pleats

Is pink and navy not the best color combination?! And with sequins added in, this might be one of my favorite looks. :)

Statement Necklace and A Graphic Tee

This outfit is a bit out of my comfort zone but I really love it! I don't wear maxi skirts very often but I love the placement of the ruching here and I feel like the form fitting shape works on my 5'1 and 1/2 (ha) frame.  I think this skirt would flatter a wide range of body types and can be dressed up or down.

I've been eyeing this Mint & Lolly popsicle necklace for a while and love the mint and cobalt color combination. It comes in two other fun color combinations as well and they're all on sale now! Mint & Lolly was recently started by three sisters who clearly have amazing taste in jewelry. They have an amazing range of candy-inspired colorful (and affordable) jewelry. And they offer free US shipping as well!

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil



I was recently given some Dove Pure Care Dry Oil products to try and I have to say I am in love with how silky and smooth they've been making my hair feel. The products don't weigh down my hair or make it feel greasy; they just make my hair feel more soft and silky which is exactly what I want in my hair products.

I have dry hair so I'm always looking for moisturizing hair products. The problem is that I find that those products often weigh my hair down. The Dove Pure Care Dry Oil products moisturized my hair without making it look oily or feel heavy. I was actually complimented on my smooth and shiny hair in the elevator by a couple of strangers! :)

I love a good headband braid but I have extremely frizzy hair so I have a hard time creating the smooth braid I want. I like that with a headband braid, I have my hair off of my face while still having my hair down and framing my face nicely. When I flat iron my hair, the frizz usually pops back up 20 minutes later which is definitely not the look I'm going for! I'm not very "hair savvy" and I get frustrated when my hair frizzes up so quickly. When I used the Dove products, my hair remained frizz-free all day after using the iron. And of course made it a lot easier for me to create the headband braid as my hair was smooth and a lot less frizzy thanks to the Dove products.

Accessorizing the LBD

Susan Hanover Designs has the most gorgeous jewelry. I'm wearing the Mia Cuff here; it is so beautiful and such a great statement piece. I'm also loving her sliced sapphire jewels as well. If you're on the hunt for unique and beautiful jewelry, definitely check out Susan Hanover.

If you've been following my blog, I'm sure you've seen my mint green Gigi New York clutch because I've featured it over and over. I finally got my second one in an amazing magenta shade! I love the embossed python, tassel, and monogram. It is the perfect gift too in my opinion!

Oh, and this Cynthia Steffe dress is now on sale! You can find the link at the bottom of the post.

Baby Blue Tulle

I had so much fun shooting this gorgeous baby blue tulle skirt from Shabby Apple. The skirt is even more beautiful in person and I definitely had my Carrie Bradshaw moment here! :) I do love pairing stripes with tulle together because I feel like it gives the tulle a more casual and fun vibe.

Shabby Apple has so many modest dresses and skirts with a vintage feel. Most of you know that I believe strongly in modesty and it's nice to find a company that is dedicated to providing classy and modest clothes for women. And the company is owned and operated by 90% women so heck yes to empowering women in the workplace!

These beautiful earrings are thanks to Rocksbox, a membership-based jewelry styling service. You get 3 jewels sent to you in each box to keep as long as you want and until you're ready for the next one! You can try out a free month membership here.

Cozy Knit and Colorful Accessories

I love every Lou & Grey piece I own because besides for being cute, they are all SO comfortable and soft to wear! I definitely went colorful with the accessories and the giant blow up (elephant?) behind me is colorful as well-ha! It's in front of The Standard Hotel and I'm not sure what it is exactly but it's pretty to look at. :)

Floral Shift and Cobalt Pumps

I was recently introduced to the most gorgeous boutique, Navy Hyde Park. They carry some of my favorite brands for shoes, jewelry, bags, and accessories. I'm talking Gigi New York, Matt Bernson, Schutz, Loren Hope, Loeffler Randall, and my beloved Chiara Ferragni shoes to name just a few! I'm in love with my cobalt pumps by Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry and they come in an amazing leopard print as well. If you live in Florida, I'm jealous because you can visit their boutique in person but their online shop is amazing as well.

Navy Hyde Park is also offering an exclusive promo code for my fabulous readers! Use the code Sequin10 for 10% off your order. Happy shopping! :)
