Tribal Print Fringe Blazer + Rib Knit High Slit Dress

I love a good double outfit post. Today I wanted to talk about a couple of very different pieces from Shein. The first is a White Tribal Print Fringe Trim Open Front Blazer (with a sweet price tag of $22) that can make any outfit fun. In this case I wanted to go chic with white culottes and a lightweight tank, but I can't wait to style it with a pair of high-waisted jeans and tee, or even a button up shirt and a pair of Levi's 501's!

NYFW day 3: Tibi Show, Parties, Hang-outs!

I know that some of you might be like, oh no NYFW again?! Hahahaha I thought about combining both my third and fourth days in one last post. BUT if you're anything like me, I'm sure you were looking forward to more! The posts are lengthy and they would be gigantic if I posted 2 in 1. It's hard to please everyone, so hopefully you're still here :) Day 3 consisted of shooting looks in the morning just around the Soho area. I mean when we have the whole city as a backdrop we don't need to "go" anywhere!! This ChicWish sweater has been on major repeat and even though I initially thought of it for fashion week, I was wearing this guys waaaay before I went! Slouchy Cardi / Gray Boots here and here / Necklaces…

Year Round White Dresses

It's getting chilly outside, to me this is the season of perfect temps. Sunny days and blue skies, dry and crisp air....but let me not forget: I am in Indiana! Therefore we have a couple of 80 degree days in the fall, as well as 30 degree ones. Despite the ups and real big downs I try to not store my summer clothes just yet because we just never know! And since we are indeed in the beginning of a colder season we find awesome deals online for spring/summer pieces. I wouldn't go crazy on shopping simply because things change and by next year we might have a new trend going on, BUT these two dresses are my musts recently. This Bow front sheer frilled dress goes perfectly well with a undershirt, coat or…

NYFW – Day 2: Flat Iron District. Bollare Showroom. Reward Style Lounge. Front rows. Presentation.

Second day of NYFW was one of our busiest. We started the day shooting an outfit in the morning at the Flatiron District and guess who we saw there shooting too? Yes, my woman crush Becky, yet again! For my morning appointments I chose this Calico Print Maxi Kimono - it's $24 bucks too! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2833861"] After a couple hours there we headed to our appointment at Bollare showroom. Let me explain how these showrooms work (I was thrilled!). You basically walk in and check in. They hand you a bag and give you an overall walk-through of the place. It looks like a boutique with racks of clothing from multiple brands (you can mainly find them at Nordstrom, ShopBop and Revolve). There are shelves with bags, sunglasses, fitness accessories, makeup, skincare and shoes. On a…

Last Breath Of Summer

After hitting record for the hottest day of the year in the beginning of fall I'm beginning to wonder what our winter here in Hoosier land will look like....not a fun picture comes to mind! On the brighter side I'm fully enjoying the last bit of summery dresses like this sweet number from Chic Wish! I think this is the perfect dress to pair with a denim jacket on transitioning weather. It costs only $55 and can take you long ways! Keep scrolling down for other styling ideas ❤️ [caption id="attachment_7288" align="alignnone" width="681"] All Photo Credits to Kelly Brannon Photography[/caption] [show_shopthepost_widget id="2831266"] I styled this look in a playful way with a top knot and a crossbody bag. For a full summer look I'd pair this dress with a cute boater hat, straw bag…

NYFW – Day 1 – Skylight Clarkson Sq + Legend Showroom + Sam Edelman’s party

It was 4am by the time I got up and as happy as happy can be I showered and put my make up on! Which totally makes me think of one of my favorite songs by Aretha Franklin..."The moment I wake up....before I put on my makeup....I say a little prayer for you!!", you know how it goes! Yes I was finally heading to NYC for the most exciting time of the year. This is better than christmas for the fashionistas on duty guys!! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2825497"] Hubs drives me to airport (gotta love my man! I owe you hunny!!) and by 9:30 I arrive in the city. We stayed st the Sheraton Tribeca and since the room was not ready yet (as I expected) there I went to explore the hip Lower Manhattan Soho neighborhood!!…

Palomino: Rustic European Cusine

I love a good dinner out, but then again who doesn't? Needless to say I'm always thrilled when I can partner with local places to feature their dinning menu on the blog (truly is my favorite part of blogging besides styling, yeah I'm a total foodie at heart!). Now truth be told if it was up to Brain that's what I would be blogging about, delicious food and charming restaurants!! Well what's best is when we can combine work with pleasure and call our dinner out an actual date! Last Friday we went to Palomino an upscale italian chain that serves heavenly thin-crust pizzas and other enticing Italiano style dishes!! Palomino is located in the heart of downtown Indy in a busy corner. They have such an authentic feel and a lovely setting, one that makes…
