Happy Friday Loves! I hope everyone is having a fabulous day and week. I wanted to share this outfit and photos with you from our trip to the U.K. back in September. I know I’m a little behind on my travel diaries post, but don’t worry it’s coming to the blog VERY soon. Stay tuned!

My husband and I travelled to the beautiful U.K. for our Anniversary trip. We were celebrating 3 years of being happily married. Here we are in Edinburgh, Scotland. While in Scotland and the U.K. we enjoyed the beautiful Fall weather along with the gorgeous foliage and crisp air on this side of the world. If you ever get the chance I highly recommend you visit Scotland and all over the U.K. it’s simply magical.

During my travels, I like to feel cozy, comfy but stylish all at the same time. This was the perfect outfit to walk around and tour the city. These flats by the way are the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever owned. We walked were the ultimate tourist walking and explore all over. You’d think my feet would be so sore, but they felt glorious. Be sure to check out the brand: Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole, it’s like walking on clouds. Trust me you’ll love the brand and your feet will be thanking you. Not only is this outfit comfy, stylish, casual, but it’s also perfect for Fall. The bomber coat is so on trend right now, you’ll want to jump on the bandwagon and get one for yourself. Not to mention, a great staple piece to have in your wardrobe. And this bomber jacket right here is still available at Zara for only $39.90. You can’t beat that!  Shop my look and get all the details to my outfit below. I hope everyones having a great week and enjoying the weather back home!

Fall Fashion Edition: Fall Outfit from Day to Night

Posted on: September 30, 2016

 

My New York look in full effect. It’s so basic,  yet so chic all at the same time. For the daytime I like to feel comfy, and this is a great casual and chic look.  For a more daytime casual feel, as I’ve done here, wear flats. For the night time, throw on a pair of heels to make this outfit sizzle for a night out on the town. My favorite heels to pair with this outfit: Jimmy Choo Kiki Suede & Fringe Heels. In addition to the heels, change up your lip color to be night time ready. My suggestion would be: a bold red lip or even a deep mave or brown lip color. My favorite Fall shade lipsticks are: Bobbi Brown’s lipstick in the Shade Cocoa and Tom Ford’ Lip Color Matte in shade Ruby Rush What I love about wearing all black, it’s a look that’s so effortless and stylish. An outfit so basic, you just need to accessorize it to take it to the next level. I’m a huge fan of accessories! With the right accessories, you can make your outfit POP!

ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN X SOCIALFASHIONISTABEAUTY

Posted on: September 9, 2016

Can you believe it’s already September? 

I feel like every year the Summer months just fly by. The Summer baby and lover in me wants to hold onto Summer for as long as I can. Luckily, the weather in New York City is still warm enough that we can still enjoy the summer heat just a little longer while longer….

When it comes to shopping for swim suits, I’m very indecisive and picky. I always have to make sure the fit looks right, and of course I want it to look flattering on me as well. So, when Eco Swim by Aqua Green contacted me to work together, I was excited to collaborate together, but was unsure about receiving a swimsuit without trying it on. But I’m happy I took the plunge to see how they create sustainable, fashionable swimsuits and clothing all at the same time.

I received my cover-up and swimsuit just in time for our trip to Miami. The fit was just right and quite flattering to my body. My body type is fit but curvy.  I’m always overly conscious of my bust area. But, thankfully the fit was just right, and I loved the black polka dot design on the swimsuit. Not only was it cute but stylish and chic all at the same time.  The cover-up was great as well. It can be styled on its own, or paired with these cute shorts (as seen on me) or even a mini skirt. Here, I paired their Jacquard Collar White Cover-Up with some cute black and white patterned  shorts. [I’ll have all the links to each item listed below].  Overall, I’m happy with the fit and style of the swimsuit and cover-up. Even after a few washes the material has still held up and looks brand new. The quality on both the cover up and swimsuit is simply amazing.

What I admire most about Eco Swim is their message and mission behind their brand. I’m all about leading a healthy lifestyle and living in a healthy, safe world and they do all that and more. Eco Swim is a 4th generation family run business, that not only cares about the materials they use but how they are created and produced. They’ve created something that sustainable and fashionable with dual purpose. Consumers are given amazing quality and planet-friendly swimwear that ’s not only better for you but for the entire planet. How can you not LOVE that!Their motto is “reducing your carbon footprint in the sand.” The work they do is truly amazing!

Aside from creating fashionable, sustainable swimwear, Eco Swim strives to help keep beaches and rivers clean. ECO SWIM is committed to several beach and river cleanups each year through retail partnerships.”  [ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN] With the help and partnership of many retailers they have removed 6,600 lbs of trash from our oceans and waters and continue to do so.  Their mission and philosophy,

 

“ ECO SWIM is a way of life. It’s the journey of learning to love, respect, and have a sense of responsibility for our planet. It’s about appreciating the past, enjoying the present, and anticipating the future. It’s protecting what is important to you while creating a better world for tomorrow.” 

The more and more I learn and read about this company, I’m happy to have partnered and collaborated with them. I believe in the brand even more, seeing all the good they are doing for our planet, is truly remarkable. Their swimsuits and clothing are designed and created out of recycled nylons and other eco-friendly materials, which are all made in America. Thank you Eco Swim for collaborating and partnering with me on this post. All thoughts are my own.
