Date Night & Dressin' Up

If I'm getting dressed up, I like to make it count. Bring on the frilly dress, the fabulous statement bag, and the cute (but walkable) heels.
This post is sponsored by Saks and ShopStyle. My affection for ALL the pretty things at Saks is strong, but their selection of pretty dresses totally sweeps me off of my feet. They carry SUCH pretty dresses. And we're not just talking pretty-enough dresses...we're talking head-turning, wildly pretty dresses. When Saks, therefore, has a huge promotional event (like the one...
I've written about joggers, pajamas and loungewear more than I ever thought possible this past year. Don't get me wrong--loungewear will always have a special place in my heart (and closet), but dressing up has always been my one true love.  I even wrote a post on how to dress up during the pandemic without sacrificing comfort (something we all clung...
With prints so unapologetically bold + beautiful they're making my heart beat fast...these happy, hopeful dresses have an irreverent vibe that's almost casual.
There's something v. exciting afoot. Along with my usual summer dress go-tos (a stretchy black midi dress, a chic white linen one), I keep eyeing up dresses in (what I'm calling) exhilarating prints. The Summer Dress Trend We're Obsessed With: Prints & Patchwork These dresses have prints so unapologetically bold and beautiful they're not just making my heart beat fast...but...
We've found that stunningly gorgeous, well-made designer dresses...don't go out of style. Beautiful romantic dresses (think silk) age so well.
Thank you to Saks OFF 5TH & ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. I love a really great dress. There are very few items that can instantly elevate my mood like a well-made, fit-for-me frock. Donning a dress sometimes feels like a blossoming -- especially after a long winter (and this winter has certainly been very, very long). But I'm funny about...
Classy, sexy & under $100. As a wedding guest + a bridesmaid, the Gaia Midi by ASTR The Label is the dress that keeps on giving. Think compliments +cost-per-wear.
My little sister recently got married. I couldn't hold the tears back as she walked down the aisle with my parents. I'm seven years older than her, and she calls me "second mommy." It was incredibly bittersweet and a huge blessing to be able to be there for her special day. In addition to helping to design her dress...
This weather calls for pretty florals, girly silhouettes, natural textures, & a lovely dose of color. Dresses serve as the easiest do-it-all outfits for spring & summer.

Loungewear, loungewear and more loungewear became the trend this past year. But last year, I found this Farm Rio floral maxi dress (on sale) and got obsessed with feeling like a goddess. Even if I didn't leave my home, wearing a stunning dress was wonderful for my mental health. Goddess Vibes: 11 Farm Rio Dresses For Summer I've worn that...
We're checking out Free People matching sets that look secretly comfy. Warning: it's not loungewear. Here's the scoop on 6 (somewhat) "dressy" sets.
I know some of us are still rocking our pandemic loungewear sets, but others (cough -- TMEI, you know who you are ;) -- cough) are decidedly over it and dying for some dressy sets. I'm a proud owner of a casual Madewell set (hoodie, shorts) and wasn't quite sure dressy sets were for me. 6 Free People Matching...
Color or print lovers, this is for you! I've been a Boden fan for a minute now... quality pieces that pop + stand the test of time. I have dresses, skirts + blouses I bought years ago that I still wear today.
Color or print lovers, this is for you! I've been a Boden fan for a minute now and I'll be first to say their pieces are lovely, eye-catching....and quite pricey. That's why I'm always keeping an eye out for their sales (I've been known to stand in line for hours for their sample sale here in NYC :)). So...
No babysitter, no dining out...But date night on the porch? YES. A little makeup, a fancy top, comfy jeans & a cozy jacket....Just add wine.
I've developed kind of a pattern this past year during quarantine. For days (or is it weeks?) at a time, I won't wear any makeup at all, and then every once in a while I'll go all out. (I mean, if I'm going to put on some makeup--let's put on some makeup.) A full-on smokey eye, contouring, the works....
