      I am totally loving this kimono trend, like really loving it! They are fun, flirty, and a great statement piece to have in your wardrobe.  When I saw this one in Marshalls, I gasped! I have been dying for a long one and I was not leaving the store without it!  Kimonos are so versatile because they can be worn with a dress, shorts, jeans, or over a swimsuit as a cover up! The fashion possibilities are endless! Have you jumped on the kimono bandwagon?

Abstract Geo Dress

Dress /  Necklace / Wedges- Similar Here / Sunnies 
 Clutch- Fabfound at Marshalls-  Rent Here
Bracelet and Ring- Lia Sophia
     Happy Monday! How was your weekend?  These summer days just seem to fly by. The weather report for this weekend was not promising, but here in New Jersey it turned out to be a stellar one without a cloud in the sky!
     I wore this outfit a few weekends ago when I went to see Phillip Phillips and O.A.R. in concert.  If you follow along on Instagram, you may have caught a sneak peek! This dress was one that required some extra undergarments (i.e., half slip) because it was a little see through. I snagged it at Forever 21  for $15.80 so I won't complain much, you get whatcha pay for after all!  I just fell in love with the print because it reminded me of the clouds in the sky when the sun is trying to peek through. I guess  that's why it's called "Abstract Geo Dress," it's up to you to interpret what you see! Are you with me on this one?

Happy Wednesday my glamorous gal pals! I'm not too thrilled how fast the month of July has gone, but I'm hangin' onto the summer as long as I can and enjoying every minute (sans mosquitos). 
This look was brought to you today by shopping my closet, something I have been trying to do more often. I am still on the fence when it comes to the Birkenstock trend, but I was so happy that I never got rid of these Birkenstock-like sandals that I purchased like, forever ago! It pays not to purge... everything! I love how they look with my harem style pants! They are light weight, super comfortable, and I also have them in black (seen here). I wore this on a casual date night and I was comfy and on trend all at the same time.  I love when that happens! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Essential Intimates

Hello my dashing darlings! It's Friday! Looks like we've made it!!
Let's talk about what you are wearing underneath those fabulous clothes of yours! Proper undergarments are essential to create the appropriate foundation for your look!
Let's review my 7 must haves that should be in your drawers!

{1} {2} {3} {4} {5} {6} {7}
1. The racer back bra- This is a must have if you are sporting tank tops this summer.  I see too many of you showing off your bra straps when wearing these tops! This bra hides perfectly underneath the back of your tank and makes it look flawless.  You know who you are out there!! Get this bra!
2. Basic half slip- This half slip will come in handy when you need a little extra material underneath a dress.  I find that too often I will purchase a light weight or light colored dress, and even though it's lined, you can still see my polka dot bloomers! I just throw on my nude slip and it all goes away!
3.  Basic thong- Since we all like to wear leggings, super skinny jeans, and white shorts, thongs are a must! I know they aren't the most comfortable for some, but there are plenty of styles out there that are more comfy than you think! Come'on let me see that thong!!!!
4. The multi- way bra- This bra is multi-functional.  The straps attach and detach to be able to be worn under many different garments! Oh the possibilities!
5. The t-shirt bra- These bras are seamless and are perfect when wearing light knits.  It creates an ultra smooth look and is designed not to show under the most form fitting tops.
6. High-waisted body contour- This undergarment will flatten your tummy and smooth out your midsection when wearing form fitting clothing.  I wear this under many of my silky, form fitting, formal dresses to make sure that my midsection looks flawless!
7. Full contouring slip- This undergarment is the whole shebang! There is a built in bra, low v-cut neckline, side slimmer, and tooshie lifter!  It molds to your body and accentuates your positive areas! Woah! This is the Cadillac of shapewear!

One last tip: It is important for your undergarments to match your natural skin color.  This will ensure that they will blend under any color garment (white clothing included) and will be virtually undetectable.
Remember smooth and seamless is the goal!
Have an amazing weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Wednesday Glam Squad! 
Thanks for tuning in for the final installment of my "holiday" in Aruba! 
 One thing Aruba is known for is its sunsets and if you look above you can obviously see why! My husband and I enjoyed watching the sunset with a nice bottle of wine as we relaxed, allowing Mother Nature do some entertaining! This was the most beautiful sunset we witnessed our entire trip (other nights were hazy and it wasn't as clear) and it just so happened that the ikat pattern and colors in my dress matched the sunset perfectly! Talk about coordination!  Obviously Mother Nature got my memo or maybe it was the fashion gods shining down on me that night!  Either way, it was a fashion marvel! 
Well lovelies, that's all she wrote! Tune in next time, for things that have nothing to do with Aruba! 
I also wanted to thank all that entered in the $100 Target gift card give away! See if you are the winner here!

Flouncy Fishbone

Dress- Express-Not available online- Still available in stores (and on sale!) / Shoes /
Clutch- Old- Cute Option Here - Last seen here/ Bracelet and Necklace- Lia Sophia / Sunnies 

Happy Monday my favorite fashionistas! As promised, I am sharing with you some snapshots from our vaycay in Aruba!  On July 4th, we went to a restaurant called Flying Fishbone. It came highly recommended by friends and we heard that you can sit with your feet in the water while dining!  I wore this short flouncy dress from Express just incase we were lucky enough to score a table in the water.  Good thing I was prepared because our meal was a little wet! Even though just our feet were in the water, the tide came in and splashed us every so often.  My poor husband was a little more wet then I was but, all in all, the meal was great! Such a fun experience! 
Thanks for stopping by glam squad! Hope you enjoyed this little piece of our vacation!
