Five Things

The kids have now been on summer break for two whole weeks and keeping me busy but I love it!  It’s amazing having kids in such different age ranges, you literally get to have a little fun doing a little bit of everything.  Just today I took my oldest to buy his girlfriend flowers, then I took Robert to Target to buy Pokemon cards and while I was there bought Joseph some teething rings.  It’s crazy but in the best possible way.

I’ve been looking for a flokati rug for a long time. It’s not that I couldn’t find one; I just couldn’t justify spending more than $20 or $30 for it. While at Walmart I found a decent sized rug for only $19.99!

One of my favorite saying’s is, “it is what it is,” so when I saw this mug at T.J. Maxx for only $2.99 I had to have it!

Finding a pack of 5 sleeveless onesies for only $7.99 at Marshalls – score! Not for me but a bargain always makes happy! Sleeveless are almost impossible to find at stores.  Look at those chunky arms!

Carters onesies

I love pesto but I’m tired of just tossing it with pasta. This time I added cheese ravioli (it was supposed to be tortellini but they were out), asparagus and sauteed spinach – yummy!

Last week I bought this green dress from Target – it was on clearance for only $16 and I loved it so much I went back and got it in deep rose and then ordered it in black. You can find the dresses here but for some reason there not on sale online.  Either way it’s a great price for a comfy summer dress that you can easily dress up.  I plan on wearing each of them with my new wedges by Steven by Steven Madden.

Celebrity Copycat: Rachel Zoe’s Look for Less!

Maxi dresses are a vital part of any woman’s  stylish wardrobe, especially during the summer.  The options are endless, but I have a weakness for a flowing white evening maxi dress (it has this boho goddess feel that just works!).  Check out my favorite celeb looks and the dress for less.

I couldn’t just pick one celeb favorite but I did find one dress that was just gorgeous!  The elaborate details on the evening dress make it look worth WAY more that just $120.  What I particularly like about the dress is the detachable train that looks like something a modern day Stevie Nicks would wear on a red carpet.

Maxi Evening Dress- $120.99 at JJsHouse.com

There you have it two inspirations and one beautiful boho maxi dress now all you need is a pair of funky platforms, a clutch and you’re good to go!

Platforms – $89.99 at Heels.com | Metallic Clutch – $20 at Zara.com | Super Betsey Clutch – $88 at BetseyJohnson.com

 

 

Picking Oranges

Pastels are perfect to celebrate beautiful spring weather, but nothing beats a pretty shade of orange to go with a golden tan for the summer.  Unlike pastels, orange compliment’s just about anyone’s complexion and can easily be used as a neutral color when building an outfit.  Check out some of my favorite pieces below.

Orange Fishtail Pleat Dress – $44 at Dorothy Perkins

Orange Jeggings – $69.50 at Calvin Klein

Orange Silk Top – $94.80 at BCBG

Orange Hi-low Dress – $79 at Lulu’s

Celebrity Copycat: Selena Gomez Look for Less!

Filed under Celebrity Copycat

Selena Gomez looks so pretty in this season’s “it” color, minty green (and the dress is perfectly matched with nude pumps).  I love how she balances her style with her age – it’s always youthful yet tasteful making this an outfit that can be worn by any woman regardless of age!  Tip: Nude pumps are a must-have so invest in a good pair they’ll never go out of style.  Get Selena’s look for less with pieces from Macy’s, Dillard’s & more!

Chiffon Dress – $$76.80 at Dillards.com

Cheery Yellow Dresses Under $100

There’s nothing better than a dress in a pretty shade of yellow to make your summer days even brighter.  These five are the “thrown-on-the-go”  kind that every woman needs in their closet.  Tip: Choose classic shapes like a shift dress, wrap, maxi or a simple tank dress…they’re the most flattering and withstand any trend ( I don’t know about you but I like to pull out my summer dresses every year and get the most out of them).  Pair them with cobalt heels for an extra punch of color; flip flops for a effortless feel; or classic wedges.

BELLISSIMA – $78 at Shabbyapple.com

I’m not quite ready to expose my arms, but I want to bust out my cute warm-weather dresses. What should I do?

A cropped sweater or shrug can be a perfect — and slimming — accompaniment to your summer look, suggests celebrity stylists Monica and Barbara Abbatemaggio. “Even donning a pretty shawl can help trim the appearance of your arms,” adds Monica. And while you might be resistant to wearing a traditional cardigan, a light cotton cardigan in beautiful summer hues will not only add structure to your free-flowing dress, but also keep you warm on cooler summer evenings too. But whether you choose a sweater, shrug or cardigan, remember that proportion is key. “It should conform to your body to help define your curves and be figure-flattering,” says Barbara. After all, a well-matched garment can give a summer dress instant glam. Check out my suggestions below!
