Summer Tee

summer tee summer tee

Top: Nordstrom rack, similar here and here  / Jeans: Gap    / Bag: Liz Claiborne   / Shoes: DSW Warehouse

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had such a wonderful weekend relaxing and celebrating Father’s Day. One of the best things about Father’s Day is the weather, here in New York City it is always gorgeous weather. Lightweight tees are the best for summer weather. They let the air flow through, aren’t too hot and are still really flattering. I love neutral colors too because they do not keep the heat in and you are usually cooler. This top I am wearing from Nordstrom Rack is so flattering, I love the high low style of the top. I linked to a few similar as I couldn’t find my exact one, I actually purchased this top in person and not online, shocking for a huge avid online shopper like myself, but the ones I linked are so cute and are also perfect for the warm weather.

What is everyone’s summer plans? We are trying to decide on some upcoming vacations. We also have a lot of house work planned (exciting stuff I know). Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday.

How to Style Army Green Jacket

Jacket: Nordstrom Rack – BCBGeneration sold out in army green but available in navy blue / Jeans: Gap  / Shoes: Old, similar here

I am completely in love with this army green jacket. I saw it at Nordstrom Rack and knew I had to have it, it also comes in navy blue which is such a great color and would match perfectly with jeans. This jacket is such a statement jacket and I love it paired with black heels. I would wear this jacket on girls night our or date night for a wonderful impact. It is under $75, and the green color is true army green. I wore the jacket both open, so you can see the cascading affect, as well as closed so you can see the statement it brings with the belt across the waist. Absolutely beautiful. This jacket is more fancy than your typical army green jacket and Nordstrom rack has a few casual options that I like here and here. If you are looking for a statement jacket, this is the jacket to own. This week it is in the 90s but it is going to cool down here in New York City again starting Wednesday and I can’t wait to wear this jacket when the cooler weather arrives.

I hope everyone had a terrific weekend. We just relaxed at home and I got my hair straightened for the summer. I am going to do a YouTube video on my hair straightening experience for you guys. It has been 9 months since I got my hair chemically straightened, and I am going to go over the pros and cons and the experience and so you can see the results. It makes managing your hair in the summer so much easier.

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week. Happy Monday! We are going to play with water tables today, woohoo.

Tie Knot Tee

Shirt: Nordstrom / Jeans: Gap 

I am loving tie knot tee’s lately. They are so stylish and my favorite way is to wear them with jeans, or shorts when the weather gets warmer. I am loving this one from Nordstrom rack, linked above. It is a bit sheer and I am wearing it with a tank underneath, but it is light weight and perfect for summer. The green is a light green, but I love that I could pair with a variety of accessories like darker greens, oranges, whites and grays. It also comes in a variety of colors and fits true to size, it is a steal for under $20.

It is still cool here in NYC, but next week it should start getting into the 80s and starting to really feel like summer. Does anyone have wonderful summer plans? We are trying to plan our vacations now for the summer.

Spring Trends

Sweater: Gap sold out, similar here and here (non-maternity) / Jeans: Gap Maternity, non maternity here / Coat: Express old, similar here and here (under $20!) / Boots: Steve Madden / Bag: Urban Outfitters

Spring is coming to a near end and I thought I would share one of my favorite spring trends. I love this aqua blue sweater, it is one of my favorite colors and it is so warm and cozy. It is maternity, but I linked to a few similar sweater above, non-maternity. I also love a good trench coat and these ruffles on the coat are too cute and make the outfit super stylish. I can see this outfit made for summer by replacing long jeans with shorts, a short sleeve aqua sweater and a light tan jacket or sweater for summer nights.

These pictures were taken my last few weeks pregnant and I can’t believe I was this pregnant and now Aria has been here for over 2 months. She is such an angel and I can’t wait on giving you guys more of an update on her.

Hope everyone is getting ready to have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and has some exciting plans. We are planning on keeping it low key, maybe a few BBQs but just relaxing for most of the weekend.

Spring Sweater

Sweater:  Gap sold out, similar here and here / Jeans: Gap Maternity, non maternity here / Boots:  Steve Madden / Bag: Urban Outfitters

Sharing today my favorite spring sweater. I love purple so much and this sweater is so warm and cozy. Spring in New York means mild temperatures, think 50 degrees, and this sweater is so perfect for those mild spring temperatures. This sweater is from gap and under $100. It is maternity but I am also linking to non maternity sweaters as well. The lavender is also the perfect shade and compliments so well. My sweater has sold out but I linked to similar ones above. I also can’t believe these pictures were taken when I was pregnant. It is so amazing how the time flew.
