You know that dress you put on and it just lifts your mood because you love it so much? This is the dress for me. Yesterday I did a recap on attending the Eva Mendes Trunk Show at NY&Co and, after trying on several outfits, I knew I had to have this dress. (The fact that there was 1 left in my size helped a little, too.) The bright yellow is just perfection. So bold and I love it. For my first go, I wanted to pair it with gold and leopard print -- my favorite combo with yellow. But, I do have big, bright plans for this dress! ;) It's definitely a bright and welcomed addition to my closet!

Sorry for the bajillion photos - but I'm just too excited to share my visit to the Tysons Corner New York & Company store last weekend! I was invited to view Eva Mendes' summer line and let me tell you.... I want one of everything. Each piece has a bold colorful pattern and is so easy to wear. No wonder why the line is selling out fast!

First, I met with Yelena, NY&Co's creative director. She pulled several looks for me to try on and it was so fun playing dress up! We chatted about each piece and she gave me some different ways to wear items. (i.e. a necklace as a belt - as seen above. Genius!).

I also had the pleasure of meeting Alejandro Blanco - the designer (and former GUESS creative director) who worked with Eva to create each piece. The man was so sweet and running between fitting rooms helping each woman to make sure she didn't need help. It was so amazing to meet Yelena and Alejandro and the rest of the NY&Co team! Thanks for having me!

Be sure to shop the looks seen above, and come back tomorrow to see what item I went home with! ;)

Memorial Day Essentials

May 20, 2014

Ah, Memorial Day. I know there will be lots of burgers on the grill and soaking up the sun with friends or family. Whether you have a cookout or wine festival planned (me!) I picked some of my favorite items for the occasion. (Hello, perfect pink crop top!!)

Memorial Day, maxi dress, ASOS maxi dress, Converse, white Converse, crop top, pink crop top, denim shorts, Target denim shorts, panama hat, J.Crew panama hat, Old Navy bucket bag

You can never go wrong with a maxi dress, or a lace dress for that matter. And denim cutoffs and sandals or Converse are perfect for a round of corn hole. (How CUTE are these eyelet Converse I found?!) Also, let's be honest: panama hats are still such a chic way to keep the sun out of your face. What are your Memorial Day plans?

I was cleaning out my closet not too long ago and came across this sequin skirt that rarely sees daylight (pretty sure this is the last time I wore it...) and challenged myself to style it in a new-to-me way. When I think of sequins, I immediately think dressy. However, as I was going through my tops and came across my white v-neck tee, I decided to dress the sequin skirt down for a change. I love how the almost "sporty"/sequin pairing turned out!
