It’s Casual Friday

TGIF- thank goodness it’s Friday! I’m running some last minute errands today to get ready for…guess where I am off to tonight!?? Ahhhhhh I am going on a Celebrity cruise to Europe! My bags are packed, the kids are taken care of (Josh, good luck and stick to the schedule and planning that took me a week to sort out) lol. I can’t wait to give you all the details of this epic voyage with Sasha! Follow my IG stories for the next week! If you haven’t been on a cruise yet, I am going to convince you to try one! I have traveled all over the world and I have found that being an a luxury “hotel/resort” on the water is the best way to go! Bon Voyage! Celebrity Edge here we come!

Jump into this Summers Hottest Trend: The Linen Jumpsuit

In one of my previous posts, I wrote about my latest linen look from Bloomingdales. Well, I was so impressed by the quality of my skirt and cami from Eileen Fisher that I decided to go back for more! I was eyeballing this cute organic linen jumpsuit last time I was there but didn’t have time to try it on (I was running late to my ladies lunch at Forty Carrots). Anyway, I had been thinking about it all week long and decided it would be an ideal look for summer, especially when paired with a simple yet perfect pair of white sneakers

Bronzer is Back

Looking for easy summer makeup!? Haven’t been out in the sun yet or more like the sun hasn’t been out yet? lol Well it hasn’t really shown itself on the east coast anyway! Never fear, I have a great makeup solution for getting that perfect summer glow without actually being in the sun. Bronzer is back and we are using it as blush! It’s no longer just for contouring, now it’s being used to give you sun-kissed skin. It’s easy to apply and looks super natural. Give yourself a summer glow with a few swipes of bronzer on the apples of your cheek. Follow it up with a natural gloss and a fab mascara. Summer makeup should be natural, easy and effortless! Now go get that glow girl! Sun kissed skin is always in! Here are some of my favorite bronzers:

Lunching in Pink

My new favorite lunch place is called Chloe in the Seaport! When the weather is nice, it’s the perfect place to sit outside and look at the water while enjoying a delicious meal! The weather has been so wacky lately…it was 40 degrees and freezing on Monday, now it’s in the high 60’s and muggy. So, I have found that the safest clothing option is to wear a jean, mule and blazer. You can’t go wrong with this outfit but definitely jazz it up with pink, pink, pink!

Linen for Summer

With hot sunny days just around the corner, I was in need of some new summer staples! As I’m sure you all know by now, Bloomingdales on 59thstreet is my go-to department store when I’m searching for the latest trends. The store is so easy to maneuver, the staff is beyond helpful and Forty Carrots on the 7thfloor is one of my favorite places to enjoy lunch (and a frozen yogurt).

Flirty Floral

Nothing says summertime like floral and fuchsia! Every closet needs a few new summer maxis’s for the season. I personally love a long dress because it makes me feel feminine. And you know what’s all the rage? Neon shoes! I wasn’t quite ready to wear neon yellow just yet, so pink it is! P.S, the sandals are under $100 so it’s an easy buy to try!

Tuesday Try On’s-Beach Cover Up’s

Trying on again this Tuesday at Nordstrom! It’s such a treat to be in the store! Not sure if you knew this but we don’t actually have a Nordstrom department store in NYC. Every once in a while, I get out of the city to do some good old mall shopping and Nordstrom is at the top of my list. Getting into the store to try on is such a thrill. There are so many pieces that I have been eyeing online but didn’t want to order without trying on. I fell in love with some of the pieces and with others, well, they weren’t what I had expected. Check out my IG stories for all of todays try ons!

No Makeup Makeup Monday

The summer “No Makeup” makeup look is what we all strive for in the warmer months. I know I do! So here is the deal…at my age, there is no more leaving the house with “No Makeup”. So, I have come up with a solution or I guess you could say it’s a compromise to getting away with wearing as little makeup as possible.
