5 Steps To Healthy Radiant Skin

Today I want to share 5 L'Occitane products I've been using daily that have given me healthy radiant skin. Over the last year I've taken skincare very seriously. I've been blessed with pretty normal skin my entire life but all of that changed last year. Out of nowhere my face completely changed and was breaking out constantly. This wasn't just a small blemish here and there. No, this was cystic acne! My face literally hurt everyday and was covered in uneven texture. After multiple trips to the dermatologist and a medical esthetician, it was determined that I was experiencing a hormonal shift, which was causing my skin to go crazy. 

Easy Everyday Glam--Fall Makeup Tutorial

[[YAY!!]] This is my easy everyday glam using the fall goodies I picked up from Nordstrom. I've been using these products for a few weeks now and absolutely love them. I linked up all of the products and colors used below. 

5 Wardrobe Staples You Need For Fall

When adding new pieces to my wardrobe, I always like to start with the classics then build from there. I picked up some new fall pieces from  Nordstrom that I know I will wear for years to come. Today I wanted to share 5 wardrobe staples you need for fall--almost all of them are under $100. A closet that is built on classic pieces and good basics will never go out of style. This will also make it much easier to put together multiple outfits using the same pieces. 

Fall In New York City

NYFW has come to an end! It seriously felt like we were there for a month. We had the most amazing time and enjoyed every second of it. Planning this trip we wanted to make sure it felt like a vacation. We made sure to schedule in some touristy things like visiting the Top Of The Rock, The Flatiron Building, shopping at Saks & Macy's, and of course Central Park. Near the end of our trip we spent the afternoon in Central Park taking in all of the sights.

NYFW Casual Fall Style

New York is always a good idea!

New York Fashion Week is in full swing. The last few days have been filled with meetings, parties, and some of the best food I've ever eaten. Temps have been in the 60's to low 70's everyday which is so perfect for running around the city and such a nice change from the Florida heat. This  v-neck sweater (on sale only $39) from Abercrombie was perfect for a day out on the town. It's such a classic sweater and perfect for fall. I paired it with these  burgundy skinny jeans and the cutest  "New York" ball cap

NYFW 2017 Street Style

Fashion week is officially here!!
This is my first year attending New York Fashion week and I am beyond excited. We touched down in NYC, changed, and headed straight for pizza before our busy first day. For day one of NYFW I wanted to keep my outfit chic but still comfortable. The weather here is absolutely perfect--I actually got chilly running around today and popped on my leather jacket!

Current Beauty Favorites--Packing For NYFW

As I sit here packing my beauty bag for NYFW, I find myself thinking " I can't leave home without this!" Over time I added products to my beauty bag that I just can't live without. I also just picked up a few new fall beauty items from  Nordstrom that are sure to be everyday favorites as well. 

NYFW Inspiration With Capri Blue

New York Fashion Week begins in just a few shorts days. As I think about my outfits and start to pack, I am constantly pulling inspiration from everything around me. I've been very drawn to metallics and mixed metals lately. We recently added  Capri Blue Guilded Muse candles into our home decor and they've given me so much inspo leading up to Fashion Week.

Travel Diary: Palm Beach Getaway

Find me under the palms!!

Last week the hubs and I took a little (3.5 hour) drive and checked-in to paradise. We stayed at  The Brazilian Court Palm Beach relaxing by the pool, shopping Worth Avenue and exploring the gorgeous city of Palm Beach. On the drive in we were drooling over the estates that line the streets of the island. I immediately started plotting the ways we could move here. My first idea was to win the lotto, but that hasn't happened yet. So now I'm working on another idea. I'll let you know how that goes :)

Casual Chic: Jeans & Tee Under $100

If I had to define my style I would sum it up by saying casual chic. A good pair of jeans with classic pumps and a casual tee will always be my favorite. When I saw this  Topshop Merci Mon Cheri tee in Nordstrom I couldn't pass it up. Would you believe me if I told you it's only $28?!? It totally looks like Gucci to me--I'm obsessed!! Needless to say, if you don't have this tee, grab it quick, it won't last long! 

Boho Bell Sleeves in Palm Beach

Ohh Palm Beach, you've stolen my heart!
The hubs and I are visiting Palm Beach for a quick little getaway and having the best time. It's so quiet and relaxing--just what we needed before the busy weeks ahead [[eek, NYFW is almost here]]! I've honestly never been to a more charming place--it seriously feels like a different world here. Everything is so picturesque with so much character, and don't get me started on the gorgeous homes and landscaping [talk about dreamy]]

Distressed Cardigan & Denim Mini

Happy Monday!!
It's no surprise that I love all things distressed. So naturally when I saw this  distressed cardigan I knew I had to have it. The color goes with everything and the fit is great. It will definitely get lots of wear the next few months. It runs a little big--I'm wearing an XXS. Did I mention it's under $50?!?  I paired it with my favorite  distressed denim mini skirt. You can never have too many rips right?!?

Early Fall Outfit: Sweater & Lace Bralette Under $40

With August coming to an end, I find myself reaching for cozy layers and all things fall. Since it's still around 90 degrees in Florida, heavy layers really aren't a realistic option--unless you stay inside all day. But that won't stop me from wearing my new fall sweaters with my summer shorts and sandals. I recently grabbed this  black BP. v-neck sweater and  scalloped lace bralette from Nordstrom. This combo is a great way to wear your fall sweaters in the late summer months. 

How To Wear Designer Jewelry For Under $30

The best things in life are free.
The second best are very expensive.

Designer pieces are definitely my guilty pleasure. I love adding classic statement pieces into my wardrobe, they can truly elevate any look. Pairing a simple pair of jeans and a tank with designer pieces instantly makes the outfit look more expensive and interesting. I am all about mixing high and low pieces to create the perfect look. Another way to elevate your look is by wearing statement designer jewelry. I just received my newest Switch box and I swear they keep getting better and better.

The Perfect Fall Transition Dress Under $50

With the fall season right around the corner, I'm looking for pieces that will transition well into the cooler months. During a recent trip to  Nordstrom, I found some great closet staples that are perfect to wear now and through the fall months. Before making a purchase, I always try to think of three different ways to wear the piece. This is a great way to keep everything in your closet wearable on more than one occasion. Heading into fall, I like to shop for good basics that can easily be layered with  sweaters,  jackets, and  scarves.

Workout Essentials With G-Shock

*This post is sponsored by G-Shock. All opinions are my own.

Does any one else find it much easier to workout when you have cute workout gear? I'm totally guilty of this. Any time I need a little extra motivation to hit the gym, I grab a new sports bra, water bottle, or in this case a G-Shock S series watch. The hubs and I have been hitting the gym regularly so I've been on the hunt for a good sporty watch. When I saw the new light pink and  rose gold S series I had to have it. 

Casual Monday Style: Pink Ruffle Tee

Happy Monday!
A few weeks ago I picked up this adorable  Chelsea28 pink ruffle hem tee. The hi-low hem totally won me over. I'm already convinced I need it in a few other colors. The olive one is next on my list! If you're looking for a great pair of light wash jeans look no further. These  1822 ripped ankle skinny jeans have the cutest side-slit hem and they're only $45. I've really been loving hem details lately. 

Casual Chic Style: Blush & Gray

Clearly I have a thing for distressed denim. I think I own 2 pairs of jeans without rips. Oops! I remember when I was in high school I spent hours distressing a pair of jeans--this was before they were popular. They had the perfect rips; I was so proud. My mom was not a fan and literally threw them in the trash 5 seconds after seeing them. haha! Since then my distressed denim collection has grown quite a bit. I've found some of my absolute favorite pairs from  Express
