Cora's Closet // Denim Jacket & Moto Boots

GapKids Denim Jacket / GapKids Moto Boot / Anais & I dress (similar)

Hi guys! Sorry for being MIA for so long. I've been tying up some loose ends with the Capital Style feature that I've been working on for the past couple of weeks. I can't wait for the issue to come out so I can share with you guys what I've been up to! And ya know, I've also been trying to enjoy the last few weeks of Summer (eek!). I think Steve and I are both trying to hold on as tight as we can to Summer, so we're thinking of squeezing in one more beach trip (just a weekender) back to Lewes to close out the season. This Summer was probably one of the best ones we've ever had together and I'm pretty sure it has a lot to do with Cora.

Speaking of Cora...I won't lie. Even though I'm still holding onto Summer and I'm not 100% ready for Fall yet, dealing with the impending end of summer has been made easier by all of the great fashion (for both mama & babe) that's coming out. And because I can't help but dress Cora up, I figured why not share how she'll be transitioning her Summer clothes into the cooler months. This Gap denim jacket and moto boots are the perfect way for her to keep warm but still allow her to wear dresses and skirts from the Summer months. And when it gets colder, she can switch out the dress with a sweater and leggings/jeans. The jacket and boots are the perfect staple for her to have in her closet. I might have to follow suit...

Newest Fancies // Ready For Fall

Glamorous Slouchy Boyfriend Sweater / Grand Bazaar 5 Stone Cuff / Croc Leather Bucket Bag / Butter 'Her Majesty's' Nail Lacquer / Embossed iPhone 5 Case / Pink Gingham Button-Up Long Sleeve Shirt / Destroyed Sexy Boyfriend Jeans / Prada Cat Eye Sunglasses / Spanish Pink Tom Ford Lip Color / Julie Vos Coin Bangle / Andie Leather Riding Boot / Torrens Pinky Ring

TGIF you guys! I cannot tell you how happy I am that this week is coming to an end. I've been working hard on a feature I'm working on for Capital Style Magazine that I haven't had much time or energy to think about anything else. I'm super excited about it and cannot wait for the final photo shoot happening tomorrow (woohoo!). But enough about that, let's talk about my newest fancies, shall we?

You wouldn't think Fall is around the corner with it feeling like a swamp outside, but I can't help myself but to start thinking up of items I want/need for the cooler months ahead. Especially a new pair of riding boots. I've had my Ralph Lauren ones for over 7 years now (can you believe that??) and I'm thinking it's time to retire them and get some new ones. I'm loving these over-the-knee ones from Sole Society.

If you know me, then you know that I have terrible vision. Like really bad nearsightedness. So when it comes to sunglasses, I'm very particular with what I buy because I have to get prescription lenses added on to them. After shopping around and trying to find the perfect oversized cat eye sunglasses, I finally found these Prada's and cannot wait for them to come in the mail!

And I am literally dying over this Zara Croc Bucket Bag. Like seriously, it is sexy, practical, sexy, and did I mention sexy? The color and the croc texture is just perfect for Fall/Winter and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.

Is there anything on your Fall wish list that you've got your eyes on? Or, dare I say, have already gotten?

Style // Ballerina Black Lace Dress

Yoana Baraschi Ming China Party Dress (also available here / Vintage Avon Tassel Beaded Clip Earrings / Vintage Rhinestone Rattlesnake Hinged Cuff Bracelet / Vintage Harry Levine Raspberry Bow Satin Clutch / Asos Heeled Sandals (similar here & here) / Lilac Bijoux Gold Rhinestone Cuff (similar) / Forever 21 ring (similar)

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! The other day, I went into Nordstorm Rack with the sole purpose of finding some new chapstick (oh so exciting, I know). But you know me, I couldn't help but take a peek at the clothing and shoes and ya know what? I came across something I never expected to find: a great, all-around ballerina dress.

I call it a ballerina dress because I literally feel like one when I wear it. The lace skirt is so feminine and flouncy that it's hard not to do twirls in it. And the black top is comfortable and flattering (the straps somewhat go inward towards your neck, kind of like a halter so it creates the illusion of smaller shoulders/arms). So really what I'm saying here is, it's like the perfect, special dress. And the best part of it all is that I got it on clearance for $36!! I'm pretty sure it's unheard of to find a dress that fits perfectly, is comfortable, and beautiful for under $40, am I right?? **I couldn't find it on Nordstrom Rack's website, but I was able to find it at other online stores, just not at the same price so don't be too alarmed of the prices you see on those sites. Best bet to find this dress at this price is to make your way over to the nearest Nordstrom Rack.

The minute I saw it, I knew a few Shop Proper Hunt pieces that would go perfectly with the dress. What do you guys think? Could you see yourself wearing this to the next wedding you're invited to? Or maybe for a special date night? I'm trying to come up with an excuse to wear this sometime soon, because it's just too pretty not to.

TGIF // Altuzurra for Target and a Few Other Things

It's that time again! Target's designer collaboration is coming soon (September 14th) and it's probably my favorite so far. Okay, it definitely IS my favorite designer collab that Target has done so far. Joseph Altuzarra is the latest designer that has collaborated with Target and his collection of sexy, feminine, and sleek pieces has me so excited for the launch. Everything in the collection is under $100 which blows my mind and I have a feeling I'll be staying up late to make sure I snag some of his ultra-luxe pieces. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the collections lookbook. I'm literally dying over that trench coat.

I've got a serious wish list of clothes that need to be added to my wardrobe right now. I know I have lots of clothes (according to my husband, anyways), but how is it that I stand in my closet and stare for what seems like hours trying to figure out what to wear I know I'm not the only one that feels this way, right? If I had my way, this oversized chiffon shirt would make its way to my closet, along with this Daisy Crochet Lace Sheer Panel Top and this sexy Graphic Print Dress.

And did I mention that we're heading to Hawaii in November?? If I didn't, I meant to earlier. We're heading there for my cousin's wedding and then vacationing afterwards. I'm super stoked about it because I can't wait to see how Cora is in Hawaii. I'm particularly excited about taking her to places that my parents used to take me to when I was her age and living in Hawaii. I'm getting ahead of myself here though, because even before we get there, I need to make sure my suitcase is packed with some goodies…I know there will be tons of Insta opportunities so I gotta have the right duds. What do you guys think of this white eyelet off-shoulder top? I could easily see myself wearing this stunning swing maxi dress having drinks by the beach.

And I've been shopping around for sunglasses and have come across two that I just really, really like. The first being a sort of over-sized Wayfarer style by Michael Kors - I could see myself wearing these everyday. The second pair is of course the Prada Cat eye sunglasses. I love these so much that I went ahead and ordered them! Can't wait for them to arrive!

Carlisle Sectional Sofa
Umm, and we might have bought a sectional sofa too… It was about time! We have been wanting to get a new one for forever (imagine getting stabbed by feathers every time you sit in a couch, that's what's been happening with our current one) so we finally made it happen. I am SO excited about it arriving just in time for holiday gatherings. Just so you get a better idea of what it'll look like, we got it upholstered in the Performance Tweed in Silver Taupe. We tested out the fabric swatch to see if the Performance Tweed was all it was cracked up to be (spilling wine and milk on it, which cleaned right up!) and it is! And the Silver Taupe color will be perfect for our living/family room by helping it lighten up the space and provide a great back drop for pillows and throws.

TGIF you guys!! Have a great weekend!
