Fab Forever Finds

00021664-02

I did my usual browsing on Forever 21 and came across this adorable dress. The color is so perfect to wear now with cute wedges and add tights to when chilly weather comes. The feminine sleeves and lace design make it an ultra girly choice. Got to love the fab forever finds!

While out and about shopping with my parentals this weekend we headed to the East Village to check out some boutiques. One of my fabulous scores was a skirt from Fab 208 NYC. All apparel is designed and made in NYC. They carry dresses, tops, skirts and more. If you are ever in the big apple I highly suggest making a stop! I have a feeling I'll be back to pick up another treasure.

Micky London

I first told you about Micky London here, and recently I was invited to the Micky London showroom to check out their fabulous products first hand. I was very excited to see all of the great accessories and meet the team. Micky London has everything from jewelry to scarves and all in exciting colors, textures and designs. I got a tour and learned more about the brand and whats coming up next for them. Exciting things coming up for Micky London, can't wait to see what they do next!

Love it!

I have a bit of a love for seahorses. I find them to be cute little creatures and I highly enjoy finding unique seahorse accessories and what not. My latest find is a ring and not just any kind of ring, a double finger ring that is HUGE! I'm beyond thrilled!

What I'm Lovin Lately...

What a lovely weekend I had. The weather was hot and summery, just like it should be in July. I did a little shopping, hung out with friends and completed a summer must do, s'mores!

Bought some cropped sequin pants at Zara on sale, $19.99! Just a little sneak peak, these won't be pulled out of my closet for a while.

The top of my dresser was getting out of control with all the jewels I've been collecting. The goods were piling up and I couldn't even see what I had (big problem). I found a solution by buying this velvet lined organizer at Daffys. The jewels and I are both happy.

To The Max

I first came across this dress in a mailer I got from Macy's. I couldn't find the dress when I searched online and I really didn't want to face the crowds of Macy's Herald Square, so I decided to wait it out to see if it would show up on macys.com. I'm glad I did, the dress is equally as fabulous as I thought it would be. I adore the color block look, the knotted neckline and that I can dress it up with heels and gold accessories or just keep it simple and casual.
Another maxi dress making its way into my closet!

Pops of Color

I hope you had a happy 4th of July!
I spent my long weekend relaxing and enjoying the lovely NYC. I did brunch, did some shopping and took in the sunny day in the city.

I also went on a little day trip to the New England town of Mystic, CT. It was rainy and chilly so I pulled out jeans for the first time in months. We explored the downtown area filled with shops, stopped by the seaport museum and did dinner at a restaurant on the water. It was a perfect day and checked some things of my summer 'to do' list.

Summer Vacation

Recently, I went on a fabulous vacation with my family and boyfriend. We did a cruise around the Eastern Caribbean. We stopped in the Bahamas, St. Thomas and St. Maarten. I did a lot of lounging around, soaking up the sun and just enjoying time with my family.
