Happy Monday dolls!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  As usual their always too short.  It was a super rainy weekend here in NJ.  Just sharing one of my easy rainy day outfits with you.  My rainy day essentials have to be my rain booties and my bubble umbrella.  I was on the hunt for this umbrella for a while.  I was so happy to find it at Target.  
I wish I had a better picture of my fabulous Kate Spade Crossbody.  I won it on a giveaway and this weekend was the first time I wore it.  Its sooo pretty and the leather is buttery soft.  I'm sure I'll wear it again soon. 
Have a happy day sweets!

S.I.N.N Style

Bracelets: Alex and Ani
Necklace: {c/o} Julie Vos
Sunnies: Ny & Company
Top: Borrowed from S.I.N.N Style
Leggings: {c/o} Hue
Clutch: Payless (I think)
Hi there sweets!  So after my Birchbox breakfast I visited the S.I.N.N Style showroom and I was in fashion heaven!  The founder Jackie Morgan was such a doll.  She's beautiful, funny and so nice.  I could have stayed and chatted her up all day. 
If your on the hunt for designer clothing, shoes, and accessories at close to 70% off then S.I.N.N is for you.  You name it, S.I.N.N has it.  Chanel, Christian Dior, Stella McCartney, Michael Kors and that's just a few that popped in my head.  Jackie had this Chanel vintage suit in like a mint color and I think I wanted to grab it and run, but I'm not a runner so I wouldn't have made it very far.  LOL! 
I had the opportunity to borrow something from the showroom to feature here on my blog.  I went back and forth on what I wanted to feature, but I decided on this gorgeous button up by Catherine Malandrino.  Ordinary it is NOT!  I don't think there is an ordinary piece in that entire showroom. As soon as I saw the details and sleeves on this top I just had to show you.
I think I've said this before, if there is one article of clothing that we should all have in our's a white button up.  You can throw on jeans and oxfords for a casual look, or you can throw on a nice pair of leather skinnies and heels for a fun night out.  
I chose to style it with gold leggings and studded booties just to show you how versatile this button up can really be.   
I had such a fun time at the S.I.N.N Style showroom and meeting the lovely Jackie and Karina.  Don't forget to check out their site for awesome goodness.

Birchbox & W3llPeople

I love makeup for breakfast!  On Friday I was invited to breakfast with Birchbox and W3LL People.  The Birchbox HQ was so chic, open, and FUN!  Looks like a fun place to work, and of course beauty products everywhere! 

I was super early.  Breakfast was at 9 and I got there at 8:30, my friends would be proud!  #alwayslate

W3LL People is makeup that is 100% all natural with organic aloe. 

Co-founder and makeup guru Shirley Pinkson, shared the wonders of how well “green” cosmetics can really work.  W3LL People received a "Green Star" by Elle Magazine.  That's the best of the best in natural and organic cosmetics.  The judges faves were the Hedonist All Natural Mineral Bronzer and the Hypnotist Natural Eyepencil. 

I got to play with the entire collection and everything felt so velvety and smooth.  My favorite product of the line has to be the UNIVERSALIST LUMINOUS MULTI-USE COLORSTICK.  It comes in all these wonderful colors and you can pretty much stick it anywhere. 

Blogger friend Hallie from Sleepless in Sequins

Makeup Heaven!

I got a nude lippy and bronzy eyes for my makeover.

After Birchbox I visited the S.I.N.N Style showroom and I can't wait to share my fun collaboration with them.  Stay tuned!

New Season, New Look!

Happy Hump Day!  Just wanted to say a quick hello and share with you all my new blog template.  What do you think?  Cute?  I hope you all like it.  I'm still playing with it, but I do love the pink and gold.  Can't wait to hear what you all think!  I Didn't want to leave you without a little fashion talk so here it is:

With all this cold here in NJ, I've been dreaming of Spring.  Thankfully it's right around the corner.   OASAP has the cutest dresses.  This one was one of my favorites and right now it's on sale! 

If I had to style this, I would probably keep it simple.  The pattern is so fun that you don't need much to stand out in this dress.  I would probably wear a cute wedge or a metallic flat.  I know, I love flats.  Sharing is caring so TELL YOUR FRIENDS! Order asap on OASAP!
