Sunny, for a Second

Ah, that time of year where summering around is “officially” welcomed. Sure living in S. Florida is summertime year round but lately, the past few weeks have been a toss up of rolling thunder and rain. Talk about a complete contrast.

At last, the sun is finding her way back to us. Knock on wood, hope I’m not speaking too soon. (UPDATE: as I hit publish, the rain came back. Ugh.)

In response to the brief moments of sunshine, I could not help but quickly gravitate towards one of my favorite fast-fashion UK brands – River Island. If you’re not familiar with River Island from some of my previous blog posts (click here and here) – think: fun, on-trend and always new with styles fitting for me and you. *sings song*

NYE Party Inspo

Sparkle, lights, music, champagne and good ole’ razzle dazzle means one thing – New Year’s Eve! Oh, how I love the one night out of the year where living like The Great Gatsby is more than acceptable – it’s encouraged!

Finding a dress to wear on one of the most glamourous nights of the year is serious business. That’s why I got you with today’s post. I’ve selected a handful of dresses from River Island because their price points are great – aka – you won’t feel guilty spending your hard-earned-GIRLBOSS cash on a dress you will probably only wear once.

So with that said, here are some of my favorites…

Holiday Style from River Island

JACKET, GRAPHIC TEE, STUDDED JEANS, SLINGBACK HEELS, EARRINGS: (c/o) River Island

So, IRL I tend to be reserved. But when it comes to dressing, I’m the complete opposite. I’m risky. Bold. Confident. I know, seems counterintuitive especially being a blogger – but it’s true!

I’m a homebody. I love snuggling up with my boyfriend while watching movies
on a Saturday night. I love cooking with him. I love reading (when I can find the time). Listening to geeky podcasts. Writing. Taking steamy baths and drinking wine. Decorating my apartment. I love it all… my “me time” at home is always super important to me!

Party Wear Finds

BLAZER, BLOUSE, MINI SKIRT, ANKLE BOOTS, EARRINGS: (c/o) River Island

If you’re looking for a few affordable pieces to carry you through the holiday season, you’re at the right place!

Today I’m sharing a new look from River Island – a look that’s perfect for holiday nights out – with pieces under $150!

Because it’s so easy to recycle the same look every holiday season – you know, a cute black dress with some old heels and earrings. Maybe with a blazer or leather jacket to keep you warm.

But this year, I challenge you to do things differently and as I say all the time, wear things that can be worn countless times. Not only will you maximize your wardrobe but you’ll look super stylish too. Oh, and save some money while you’re at it!

Another blazer…

BLAZER, SWEATER: (c/o) Ann Taylor/SKORT: Zara – similar here, here and here/BELT: Nordstrom/HEELS: (c/o) Saks OFF 5th – love these too!/PURSE: (c/o) Folli Follie ->  save, spend and splurge/NECKLACE, EARRINGS: (c/o) BaubleBar/SUNNIES: Neiman Marcus

As I continue to mention again and again, I can’t live without blazers this fall.

They have always been one of my favorite items in my closet because they are so versatile and time and time again, work for so many occasions like work, weekends or whenever you have nothing to wear. So like basically everything. Am I getting annoying yet? Tell me if I am.

Blazin’ the Way

BLAZER, TEE, DENIM MINISKIRT, PUMPS: (c/o) River Island

Blazers. Blazers. Blazers. Blazers.

That’s officially the name of the game this fall, in case you missed the memo and live under a rock. AKA you missed seeing like every fashion girl wear a blazer during fashion month.

The good news? There’s a strong chance you already have a blazer sitting in your closet. Yep, that one. The one you thought you’d only wear to work – not on the weekends.

If that’s you, I’m about to change your mind this season. I’ve already purchased like 5 new blazers and plan to share them all season long. No, I’m not a shopaholic. Ok, maybe yes.
