Simple Date Night Outfit

I often get asked, “What should I wear on a date?” and this outfit is a no-fail one for me! A bodysuit, skinny jeans, a simple heeled sandal, and a clutch are my go-to date night pieces. You’ll feel comfortable, put together, and sexy in them! What to Wear – Date Night OutfitBodysuits look great on every single woman, and this Banana Republic bodysuit is so soft and under $20 right now (it’s on major sale.) I have it in 5 colors and wear them with sweatpants around the house as well. Another bodysuit I love is this Leith one which is long sleeve and made of a slinky/more dressed up spandex material. I love wearing these Nippies as a bra underneath tight bodysuits. Whoever said skinny jeans and/or ripped jeans are OUT is wrong… At the end of the day, you have to wear what YOU love regardless of whether it’s trendy or IN/OUT. I’ve never followed trends which has served me well. These L’Agence jeans are such a dream on. They fit beautifully, make your butt feel so good, have the right amount of stretch, and come in a ton of different washes. They’re high waisted and a staple in my wardrobe (I have them in black, white, dark blue, light blue and grey ha!) Obsessed… Styling My OutfitA simple heeled sandal is great for any occasion. The ones I’m wearing here are oldies from Mango, but these Schutz ones are identical. The black faux croc pair is really fun too. While the Bottega Veneta “pouch” clutch is certainly pricey, it’s a really elegant piece that you’ll have forever. I love the woven white leather one. I also love this simple YSL clutch.

What To Wear To The Beach

Summer is here and I wanted to share my favorite swimsuits, sarongs, sandals, and sun hats. Most of my favorite beach items have been on rotation for years and years. This hat is the only straw hat you need – it’s a splurge, but the absolute perfect shape! Zimmermann bikinis are my go-to swimwear of choice – I love the fit, the prints, and the little details they always include. Without further ado, the best items to wear to the beach… What To Wear To The BeachBest SwimsuitsThis L*Space bikini is by far the best white balconette top I own. It’s so flattering and adjustable. It sells out quickly, but this one is similar. I have this Bond Eye two piece in black and red – it’s one size fits all, so stretchy and the fabric is amazinggggg. I also have it in a one piece – which is SO sexy. Another one piece I have is this Hunza G one. It’s a similar stretchy/crinkly fabric to the Bond Eye one (TBH I like the Bond Eye one more.) You can never go wrong with Missoni bikinis… Cettire has so many good ones on major sale! Like I said above, Zimmermann swimsuits are beautiful, and I always find the best ones at Nordstrom, Revolve or The Outnet. Eyeing this one, this one, this one and this one. Best SandalsThese Stuart Weitzman pearl sandals are a dream….they’re SO comfy. I also love a simple TKEES flip flop. Best CoverupsThis white shirtdress is such a classic beach dress/coverup. I’m obsessed with a Missoni tunic dress for the beach or pool. I love this white Melissa Odabash pom pom coverup – it lays really beautifully when you tie it at the corner of your hip. I recently bought a few of these Etsy sarongs – and am SO impressed with the quality and price point. I got the 10 pack for wedding guest gifts. These are my go-to denim shorts (also here), but I’m eyeing this pair under $45. If you’re looking for a coverup under $20 – I have this one in black and white. And if you want a coveurp/dress you can slip on and head to lunch or drinks after – this is a great LBD. Best Sun HatsLike I mentioned above, this Janessa Leone straw hat is 100% worth the investment. This one with a ribbon is really cute, and a baseball hat always looks really good too. Best Straw TotesThe one in this photo is from By Tatoufa. Another straw bag I’ve been using a ton this summer is this one with brown leather handles. These mini personalized straw totes are really fun and so are the pom pom ones.

My Bridal Event Shoes

Picking out all of my bridal outfits and accessories was such a fun experience!  When it came to picking out my bridal shoes for all of the various events, I knew I wanted to wear Stuart Weitzman heels.  They make the best shoes in terms of quality, comfort, and design – and have the most gorgeous Bridal shoe collection. My Bridal Event Shoes Rehearsal Dinner Heels For my rehearsal dinner, I chose these stunning white Nudistsong Mesh Bow heels.  The bows on the back of the heels are the perfect detail for any bridal occasion and really made me feel special for our dinner!  I find most Stuart Weitzman heels to run about a ½ size big, so instead of getting my normal size 9 – I always get an 8 ½ in their shoes. Bachelorette Party Heels For my bachelorette party, I knew I wanted something sparkly and playful.  The Nudistsong Platinum Noir heels were just what my outfit needed!  They would be so great to wear to a wedding, cocktail party or out on the town with your partner! Bridal Shower Heels For my bridal shower, I went with the classic white leather Nudistsong heels.  This is a style I (clearly) love and have worn for years and years.  They are simple, elegant, and really elongate your legs.  They flatter every foot. I particularly like that the heel is high, but not too high to the point where they’re uncomfortable. Casual Bridal Sandals For my wedding week and the weeks leading up to it, I lived in these Goldie T Strap pearl sandals.  The sole is padded so you can walk around all day in them. Also, they are SO chic (I mean the pearl detail is just to die for!!!), and they come in 3 different widths.  I ended up buying them for my best friend and sister. It was so fun to wear matching sandals all week! Be sure to check out the rest of the Stuart Weitzman Bridal collection – there are so many amazing gems!

What I Wore To My Bridal Shower

What I Wore To My Bridal Shower I had so much fun celebrating my bridal shower surrounded by my friends and family. You can see all the details from the special day here, and all of my outfit details within this post below. And here’s a look at the front of my dress! My Bridal Shower Dress I wore this beautiful white eyelet Monique Lhuillier dress to my bridal shower. Like most bridal dresses, it runs small, so if you’re in between sizes, definitely size up. The material is a gorgeous cotton-like eyelet, and it’s fully lined so it’s not see through. The back of the dress dips low (not too low), but just enough where it looks really feminine and flattering. This is a really similar option to the one I wore! White Bridal Shower Dresses If you’re looking for a white eyelet dress option, I recommend this one, this one, this one and this one. Also, if you’re interested in dress options that cover your arms – this one, this one and this one are so pretty. If you’re leaning toward a white lace dress, I recommend this one, this one, this one or this one. And if you’re looking for something that is on the longer side, I love this one, this one, this one and this one! Bridal Shower Accessories I wore a nude Gucci clutch from years ago to my bridal shower (sadly sold out, similar here), but I love this YSL clutch and this one (for a white option.) I wore these Stuart Weitzman Nudistsong heels (they also come in patent leather.) If you want a lower heel – these pearl block heels are stunning. For jewelry, I wore my same charm earrings that I always wear, but if you want to do a pearl earring option – these are beautiful! Bridal Shower Guest Dresses If you’re attending as a guest, it’s best not to wear white out of respect for the bride. I suggest something colorful and fun like this blue + white dress, this one (you may recognize – I have it!), or even a coral knit dress like this or this. Be sure to check out my Bridal Favorites page which is packed full of other options! Monique Lhuillier dress (also love this one and this one)Stuart Weitzman heels (also love these and these)
