Just a few pairs of shoes that will be in heavy rotation this summer. ūüôā

I wanted a pair of strappy sandals but I find them a tad uncomfortable. ¬†These heels (on the left) by Dolce Vita are a perfect replacement. ¬†They lace up the front but still give me the support I need. ¬†They’re by far one of my favorite! ¬†The Steven wedges are amazing! ¬†They go with everything and look amazing with a little black dress. ¬†The metallic wedge give them a little glitz and the tan color keeps them casual – love them!

summer heels

As much as I love my heels I need to be realistic. ¬†I can’t always run around with heels while I’m with the baby. ¬†For those busy days I have my Yosi Samra sandals in white with animal print. ¬†SO comfy! ¬†In my purse I usually carry around my London Sole ballerina flats. ¬†They go with everything anytime of the year!

Must Have Summer Flats

For days at the playground I’ve also got some sneaks. ¬†I bought these keds like sneaks from a street vendor in NY for only $5 each. ¬† Nothing beats shopping those NY street vendors – nothing! ¬†I miss NY ūüôĀ

Sneaks for $5

Celebrity Copycat: Jessica Alba’s Look for Under $100!

October 23, 2013 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

I love bargain shopping and I love it even more when it’s a challenge!¬† I was approached by Kmart and Sears to put together 4 celeb looks under $100 each and I immediately jumped at the opportunity.¬† I knew exactly which look I wanted to recreate based off a sweater I had seen at brand spanking new Kmart I was shopping at a couple of weeks ago.¬† It was a chunky knit cowl neck neck with three quarter sleeves (perfect for fall) that I really wanted but passed because I didn’t think I could fit into it.¬† Well, I went back found a size that fit my bump perfectly along with a TON of others pieces that I LOVE and will use throught fall right into winter, throughout my pregnancy and hopefully once I lose some weight again.

While I was shopping at Kmart I’ve got to be honest I was shocked at the selection at the new spot in Tampa.¬† They literally have a little bit of everything for everyone but what really impressed me was the selection of women’s clothing.¬† They had just about every line that my local Kmart didn’t carry.¬† They had everything from Nicki Minaj’s new line which I thought was shockingly cute with an enormous selection of jewelry to Jaclyn Smith’s line that surprised me even it had adorable sweaters and and jackets that I fell in love with…who knew!

I really had a hard time picking one outfit but I finally setled to do a copycat on  Jessica Alba cute casual look with pieces that I can easily wear with just about anything else in my closet and the entire outfit is under $100!   Check it out below:

What I’m Wearing: Jaclyn Smith Cowl Neck Sweater ¬†– $29.99 on sale for $24.99 | Bongo Leggings – $10 | Brown Riding Boots – $39.99 BOGO 50% off last weekend so I only paid $20 | Studded Satchel – $18.74 with 25% off

 Stay tuned for the next copycat under $100 coming next week!

Outta My Bag: Motel Rocks Tube Skirt

Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I’ve had this skirt from Motel Rocks¬†for some time and I’ve always worn it casually with a tank and denim jacket.¬† This time I decided to dress it up a bit with a burgundy batwing cardigan, which is so lightweight I can wear it year round, and for a pop of color I added a blue bandeau top. Burgundy or shall I say oxblood is my favorite color this season – it gives everything a more luxurious feel. ūüôā

What I’m Wearing:

Cotton Batwing Cardigan – $5 at Cotton On

Bandeau Top c/o meet mark

Motel Tube Skirt c/o Motel Rocks

Belt – $15 (last season similar one here) at HM.com

Studded Clutch (also seen here) c/o Yesstyle.com

For The Love Of Boots

January 8, 2013 by

I love shoes but my weakness has always been boots – especially the rugged worn in types.¬† They give so much personality to any outfit and I love the maculine feel.¬† I don’t own a ton of boots but that’s because I consider them investment pieces to be worn over and over again (the older they get the better they look).¬† A favorite brand of womens fashion boots has always been Frye.¬†They always look perfectly worn and the leather is SO thick and durable. ¬†I still remember buying my first pair when I was a freshman in high school called ¬†the Harness – I wore them to death! ¬†I still own my second pair, the Classic Campus (pictured below), which I bought after I saw Rachel on Friends wear them (so cheesy I know).

To me¬†Frye boots¬†are the epitome of a pair of bad ass boots! ¬†Check out some of favorites that I’ve been eyeing like the Paige riding boots (see below).

A Day In The Life With Old Navy’s The Rockstars

September 20, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds


I¬†live¬†in jeans. Whether day or night, I have dozens ready for any occasion. ¬†For the most part the majority of my jeans have some spandex in them (it’s a must for me because I’m curvy and like lots of women my weight tends to fluctuate a bit – what can I say I like to eat!). When I was asked to try out¬†Old¬†Navy’s The Rockstars, I was SO excited not only because I’m a die hard¬†Old¬†Navy¬†fan (my entire family shops there and I’m a bit crazy about their sales) but also because they’re comfy and have the perfect fit for every body. ¬†When I first went to Old¬†Navy¬†to pick out a pair, I must admit I had a hard time picking just one. The selection is huge with colors like purple, yellow, brown cord, green and red that are amazing for fall.¬† I ended up picking the classic dark denim ¬†because it offered me a lot of options with pieces I already own, but I totally fell in love with the pinks and reds and will probably head back next week to grab some. ¬†From 9/20 to 10/3¬†Old¬†Navy’s The Rockstars will be¬†on sale for only $19. ¬† Below is a glimpse of a day in my life with The Rockstars (and yes I really do change this much througout the day lol).

The Rockstars huge selection!

I had a hard time picking which one I wanted.

 

I had a few meetings and tons of calls so I paired The Rockstars with my favorite green blazer (aslo seen here), a white tee and black sling backs.

 

 

 Out for a early dinner in The Rockstars, a polka dot cardigan, yellow cami and fuschia mary janes.

 Later that night I swapped out the cardigan and threw on a dressier top for a night of dancing!

 The following day I started my day wearing a polka dot denim top and The Rockstars.

Later on swapped denim top with a vintage cardigan and clutch (also seen here)

 The Rockstars at Old Navy are a perfect fit for every body

Like a lot of people, there are days when being a mom and having a full time job collide in the worst possible way. ¬†I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thrown style out the window in the interest of comfort, simplicity and sanity. ¬†Which is why I loved these wedges from Shoe Privee.

No matter kind of day you’re having or what outfit you’re wearing, these shoes will definitely kick it up a notch!

 

I paired my platform wedges c/o Shoe Privee with black cargo skinny jeans from Forever21 (no longer available), a tank from American Eagle (no longer available), a jacket from Kohl’s Apt. 9 line, Balenciaga inspired bag from Belloiris, sunglasses from Ross,¬†and ring from Twisted Silver (one of my favorites).
