The ONE Dress Every Girl Should Have In Her Closet

I write a lot of blog posts about dresses. 
What can I say?! I love em.
Sweatshirt dresses, swing dresses, maxi dresses BUT this dress might be my favorite of all time. 
So much so, I thought it deserved it's own dedicated blog post. 
Not to be dramatic, BUT, if it came down to it and I had to pick ONE dress out of my closet to keep, this one would be it. 
Because it's so versatile. You can literally wear it with everything.
You can wear it with over the knee boots, booties, a cardigan, a moto jacket, a sweater or sweatshirt layered on top, the options are endless.

Comfy Sweatshirt Dress Under $50

I'm pretty sure we all have owned that ONE super comfy sweatshirt. 
The one we wear on Saturday mornings in the fall with a cup of coffee.
The one we've packed up and moved in.
The one that will never make it into the donation bag any time there is a closet clean out because you just can't seem to part with it quite yet.
That ONE perfect comfy sweatshirt.

Splurge vs. Steal - FALL EDITION

Everybody loves a good deal right?!
Now, don't get me wrong, I love splurging every once in a while on a great designer bag or pair of shoes that will last me forever. 
BUT sometimes there are pieces that you just want for a season without spending a pretty penny. 

Now a days, there are so many great look-a-likes for high end designer pieces that it's easy and affordable to create a chic stylish look for less. I've rounded up some of my favorite "dupes" for the fall season, so I thought I would share them with you!

The Velvet Trend

Let's talk velvet.
Do you love it? Hate it? Not so sure?
Well, say hello to the 90's style because crushed velvet is back on trend.
I have to be honest, I wasn't quite sure how I felt about it at first, but after wearing it more and styling it in my wardrobe a bit, I'm loving it. It adds a little bit of texture to your outfit, giving it a bit more fun & flare.

Khaki Trench Vest

One of my favorite wardrobe pieces for fall is a good vest. A vest can dress up ANY outfit. Add it over a swing dress & booties for a simple cute look or pop it over a t-shirt & jeans for a more put together outfit. Layering is key in the fall months and a fun vest is always a great option.

When I got this khaki trench vest from Bellissma Babes boutique, I knew that it was something I would wear ALL season long. It's also a perfect staple for pregnancy as you can style it over a body con dress or just a plain long sleeve t-shirt like I did in this post. A plain black t-shirt and jeans...nothing special. Add a trench vest and suddenly the whole outfit is taken from boring to trendy.

My Drybar Experience

Who else DREADS blow drying their hair after washing it?!
You too?
Glad I'm not alone. 
It takes me about 45 minutes to blow dry and style my hair after I wash it, so when I have the opportunity for someone to do it for me, I jump on that train! Do you know how many emails I can answer in 45 minutes while someone else is doing my hair?! Such a dream.

When I was in NYC last month, I had the opportunity to check out the Drybar Tribeca. Now, I have multiple Drybar products (I'm listing my favorites and most used ones at the bottom of this post), but I have never had my hair done at one of their blow dry bars before. Al in all, this might have been my first Drybar experience, but let me tell you something, it will not be my last.

Trending This Fall: Pearls

One of my favorite things about going to fashion week in September is getting a good look at all the trends that are starting for the fall season. If you love following trendy styles, NYFW is a great place to get inspiration for the upcoming season. One of the trends that I saw everywhere when I was there were PEARLS. Now that's a trend I can stand behind. To me, pearls are such a classic style. My go-to everyday pair of earrings are pearls, so you can probably guess my excitement level when I started seeing pearls on sweaters, jeans, jackets and shoes.

Styling The Bump

I'm a little over 23 weeks pregnant now and I've honestly been LOVING dressing up the bump. I'm not going to lie, you have to be a little bit more creative at times since your regular jeans are out of the picture (yup, mine don't button anymore) and I can't do my usual t-shirt, jeans, and front tuck look that was my go-to before baby. What's my secret to creating cute outfits while pregnant?
A good staple fitting dress.
I've been living in fitted bodycon dresses recently because they are comfortable and very easy to style in different ways when your jeans aren't fitting anymore. Throw a plaid flannel over it for a casual look, put a moto jacket over it for a cool trendy look, style it with a cute cropped sweatshirt, the list goes on.

Charlotte Tilbury Product Review

If you've been following me for a while now, you know that I've always been a HUGE Charlotte Tilbury fan. I actually stocked up on a TON of her products about three years ago when I traveled to London because her line was not available in the states yet at that time. Ever since then, I've been obsessed to say the least. I love the formula of her lipsticks, the bronze gorgeous packaging and just her whole take on color, contouring and the flawless finish her products leave your face looking.

Casual Fall Street Style In NYC

Happy October!
I can't believe that fall is here! Well, kind of. It's suppose to be 90 degrees here this weekend. HA! But in the meantime, I'll just keep wearing all my seasonal inspired outfits until it actually gets cold, because I'm SO ready for fall weather!

When it gets a little cooler, I plan on styling this neutral midi dress with everything. I'm talking booties and a moto jacket, biker boots and a fun camo bomber and with all kinds of sweater vests just like I styled it when I was in NYC. That's the amazing thing about a staple piece like this, you can dress it up for a night out or dress it down with sneakers for a day of exploring a new city. The dress in this post is maternity and SO amazing for a growing bump. It's comfortable, neutral so that you can pair it with a lot of other items and the perfect length to flatter your figure. If you are looking for a similar option to style that is not maternity, this dress is on constant repeat for me as well.

New York Fashion Week Recap!

I've been home from NYFW for about a month now and I still smile thinking about it. What an amazing experience that I'll forever remember! I felt so lucky to be there, be invited to events and work with some amazing brands while I was there. And honestly, if it wasn't for you guys reading this blog, shopping my links or supporting me, I wouldn't have been able to have the experience I did!
