VINTAGE CALVIN KLEIN

5.23.2017


You guys! I am so excited to show off my new vintage Calvin Klein mules. My best friend was doing her usual thrifting and came across these beauties. Fortunately, (haha) they were too small for her so she gave them to me! I know, she's the best. Thanks bestie!

BIG HAIR

5.10.2017

Zara top | Levi's Wedgie | J.Crew shoes

My curls are probably new to you. My close friends didn't know I had curly hair, even Kevin was surprised to see how curly my hair was, but I'd say he was more enamored. He couldn't keep his hands off me.

Anyway, Ever since I can remember I always wore my hair curly. I had waist length hair and I hadn't been introduced to a Dominican hair salon yet. In case you don't know, you get the BEST blowout at a Dominican hair salon. Thank me later. Around the age of 13 I had my first blowout and I became obsessed. I thought I was some hot shit. So hot that I never wore my hair curly again.

I have dyed my hair and straightened it so many times, I thought I had completely lost my curls, so I never bothered. Last month I got haircut, some shaggy layers and I noticed after washing my hair it had some bounce, more than usual. So I went for it, I decided to wear my hair curly and though it took me some time to get use it to it, I did enjoy it and enjoyed the way Kevin looked at me.

So maybe you won't see me with my hair curly all the time, but I'm happy to know that if I want to wear it curly, I can. Also for all of you wanting your curls back, consider getting some layers with a razor, it will make a big difference.

Side note: How cute are my shoes?!

BELLA ELLA

5.04.2017

Wearing: Bella Ella blouse | Levis skirt | Club Monaco shoes (more Gold Mules here)

Let me just start off by saying never, ever, have I trusted anyone to dress me, let alone a man. I like to have control with everything I wear, but Kevin gets me. He's the type of man that likes to surprise me with little gifts, just because. Sometimes even food does the trick. Anyway, he came across this Blue floral top by Bella Ella and as he said "he instantly thought of me". You can't ever go wrong with floral. It never goes out of style! Plus I love the bell sleeves. The weather was beautiful, it felt like Summer, so I decided to pair it with a denim skirt and a pair of metallic mules. It was an effortless and comfortable outfit. Just what I needed to feel pretty for our little lunch date. 

HAMILTON JEWELERS

5.01.2017

Jewelry: Hamilton Collection Earrings | Temple St. Clair necklace | Pomellato Nudo ring | Hamilton Collection Gold ring | Heub Diamond Flower ring- view collection here, also available in stores | Hamilton Collection Gold Link bracelet- available in stores

As you all know Kevin and I got engaged this year which has been super exciting. I am so happy with the ring! The ring is from Hamilton Jewelers. Kevin told me all about his great experience, so of course I wanted to check out the store, translation, I wanted to see what other goodies I could get. After my visit I was very happy to hear that Hamilton wanted to work with me!" We all know the saying a kid in a candy store" well, that was me but with beautiful jewels!

Hamilton has been around since 1912 and I've always admired their iconic tudor style building in downtown Princeton. They also have locations in Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.  (now I'm thinking vacation). They also have a great online selection. Check out Hamilton Jewelers here.
I was very lucky to get the chance to pick some of my favorite items to do a shoot with and it was a great experience. They were all very nice and it made the experience super fun. Also they have chocolate for customers which is delish! (Okay now I'm thinking chocolate) Anywayyy, I am a huge fan of gold over silver as you can tell from the photos as I think it complements my skin tone the best. Love that I got to mix and match some rings to stack and how awesome is the multiple ring which is one piece! Absolutely loved all the pieces and would recommend Hamilton as they have such an extensive offering from David Yurman, Gucci to their own private label (which is stunning!!).

Also, a pro tip to the ladies and the fellas (hint hint), sign up for their email list and take advantage of their daily deals online. Kevin did and surprised me with these great earrings! You can't ever go wrong with a "just because" gift.

Which piece is your favorite? It's okay to pick more than one! ;)

DENIM CRUISER

4.14.2017

Wearing: Zara top | Madewell Jeans | Tory Burch shoes

These Madewell jeans have become my second favorite pair of jeans. First are my Levis wedgie ones, of course. I only wish I had gone down a size because they have a lot of stretch in them, plus I lost 4 pounds. So yaasss to that!

Also don't forget to shop ShopBop's Sale Event! It's still going on and there are so many must haves like all of Stuart Weitzman shoes! You have to check out their Mulearky Satin slides!
