 Here’s an outfit roundup of my favorite looks from the last couple months! Pictures are by the talented Chani Shmookler-Deutsch, of course. Hope you week is spectacular!

Some of my favorite dresses (from left to right: J.Crew Factory, Loft, Madewell, Loft)…

So it’s safe to assume I like color? 🙂

Friday Favorites

I thought that maybe it would be fun to show some of my favorite links every Friday. What do you all think?
Let’s try it out this week and please let me know what you think!

Loving the J.Crew collab with Jennifer Meyer! (You can find it all here )
Speaking of great collabs, I’m also loving Anthropologie’s collab with Peter Som! Too bad my favorite floral dress is sold out, but I’m also sort of glad because I seriously need to stay away from shopping. You can find the full collab here. My favorites are this quirky zebra dress and this gorgeous (sold out) floral dress. Oh, and the Tracy Reese collab is great too; this dress is my favorite.

Loving these sweet polka dot nails from blueberrydays
Must try this healthier alternative to muddy buddies or puppy chow (whatever you call it at home)! Check the recipe out here. For the record, I don’t believe in diets or depriving yourself but I do believe in eating in a balanced way.
Not really a link but this is my first attempt at watercolors. Don’t laugh!
Anyway, that’s all for now! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! xoxo

Rockin’ The Monochrome Trend

Hello lovely readers! How do you feel about the monochrome trend? Would you rock it? If I do this again, I’d do it in mint, because my personal philosophy (hehe) about mint is that you can never have enough of that color! I like this color too and I felt all bright and summery in it. 🙂

A Rainy Day Outfit

Rain and humidity make for a pretty gross combination, huh? I couldn’t figure out what to wear so I went for a basic white shirt and denim and added bold accessories to cheer up my outfit. How amazing is my RM bag? This is the other one I got at the sample sale a few weeks ago (I shared the first beauty here).

5 Ways To Wear A Statement Necklace

The statement necklace. It can make a simple outfit pop! It’s such an easy way to make your outfit look cohesive and thought out when really, all you’re doing is throwing on a necklace. A white tee and denim or a solid blouse with a pencil skirt or slacks are great times to put on a statement piece. Your outfit doesn’t have to be simple though; you can still wear it when wearing bright bold colors and interesting textures like I did here. Or of course with an LBD like I did here. And you really don’t have to spend a lot of money. All these pieces were really affordable, the cheapest being about $15 and the most expensive being $79.
This pink and rose gold beauty is by Jenn from EllandEmm.

This is me trying to be attractive. Justttttt kidding, I’m just bored of half smiling in all the necklace photos and trying to entertain Chani as she snaps picture after picture. Cool necklace, huh? This piece is from Banana Republic and while I don’t see it online at the moment, this one is also pretty.

Another lovely expression from yours truly. On a random note, has anyone noticed that I now sign off as “Your Sequin Admirer” ? At a big Friday night dinner at my house last week, one of our guests came up with that one. 🙂 Oh and this green beauty is from Anthropologie, on sale.
Recently got this fun coral and turquoise necklace (perfect color combo!) from Bauble Bar’s friend and family sale. Check out their big selection of affordable statement necklaces here.
Meet the new love of my life. Obsesseddddd with this beauty from The Yellow Door. And it was well priced too! You might be seeing this one a lot in the future. 🙂
This sweet necklace is from Dream Big Jewelry by Dasi. She seriously has the most affordable pieces.
Show me your statement necklaces! Or the ones you plan to get after reading this post. 🙂
