Donna Karan Fall Trends

We all know Bloomingdales is one of my favorite “go-to” stores for beauty and fragrance but lately, I’ve been spending more time shopping for chic and trendy outfits. The Bloomingdales flagship store is conveniently located four subway stops from my apartment so it is the ideal place to shop. I was walking through the women’s department and came across the latest collection from Donna Karan. First of all, let me start of by saying I am a huge fan of Donna Karan and have attended a few of her New York Fashion Week shows. I am always impressed by how she is able to keep her collections looking classy yet trendy at the same time. Continue Reading

Fall Scent: Cartier Carat

We all know that Bloomingdales is one of my all-time favorite “go-to” stores for beauty, trends and of course, lunch at Forty Carrots. I am constantly popping into Bloomies to check out their latest trends in both fashion and beauty! Fall is here, which means it is time to swap out my summer signature scent for a bolder fall fragrance. I visited the perfume counters and tried a number of fragrances but couldn’t decide on one until I smelled the latest perfume from Cartier, Cartier Carat! Continue Reading

The leaves are slowly starting to change, there is a slight chill in the air so I think it’s safe to say that fall has officially arrived. This is the time of year where it’s not quite coat weather but it’s ideal for oversized cardigans. Cardigan and oversized sweater season has officially arrived! Below are some of my favorite finds so far this season:

Mad for Plaid

Mad for Plaid this fall and every fall! I just can’t get enough! The best part about fall is the change in season, colors and the need for booties, leather and suede! Plaid is all the rage this season and I am not mad about it, I’m mad for it! This dress is ideal for fall weather because the fabric is heavy enough for a chilly day but also perfect for a sunny fall day. Layer this look with a suede jacket and you are ready to wear one of the hottest fall trends of 2018! Below are some of my other favorite plaid items:  Continue Reading

Stay Moisturized

It is beyond important to keep you skin hydrated, no matter what time of year! Although it seems as if winter is the harshest time of year to stay moisturized, you may be surprised to find out that summertime can also wreak havoc on your skin. Whether it be from long days in a chlorinated pool or excessive air conditioning, your skin can easily dry out during the summer months. I personally like to use L’Occitane’s almond milk concentrate moisturizer on a daily basis. It has a very light fragrance and keeps your skin soft and supple. I also use their almond oil body wash in the shower, which is absolutely incredible! I didn’t know much about L’Occitane products until recently and am beyond impressed by the quality. Definitely check out some of my favorite products below: Continue Reading

Chambrey yey!

What’s there not to love about a chambray jumpsuit? In general, jumpsuits are the ultimate style statement. They are far beyond a simple dress and create much more of a striking look! Also, I must say, it’s probably one of the easiest looks to pull off. All you need to do is make sure to accessorize correctly! I decided to keep this look casual and paired my jumpsuit with a large tote as well as complementing earrings and flat sandals. If I wanted to dress this look up, I would have opted for statement earrings and a pump or high-heel sandal. Either way, this chambray jumpsuit is ideal wether you dress it up or down. Below are some more of my favorite jumpsuits: Continue Reading
