Vegas.com reached out to me a few weeks ago and asked if I would put together a few Las Vegas inspired looks for their #MyVegasStyle challenge. I have been to Vegas a couple of times and had a blast! Vegas is full of amazing shows, fantastic restaurants and fun filled resorts, oh and you can't forget the shopping... boy is the shopping awesome!
The three looks I put together are inspired by the Aria Las Vegas. The hotel looks amazing! I wish I was heading there for a summer vacay. The first look I put together is for lunch at Lemongrass. The second look is for dinner at Javier's. The third and final look is for a night out a Haze Nightclub.
I just love all the amazing serving pieces Lifeguard Press has come out with lately. Lifeguard Press carries all your favorite designers home goods, accessories and stationary. Whether your throwing a sophisticated Kate Spade inspired function or a whimsical summer swaray inspired by miss Lilly Pulitzer, Lifeguard Press has you covered!

I am always on the lookout for ways to improve my space at work. Whether it's cute desk decorations or using fun stationery or pens, it is always better to work in a space that feels like you. Pinterest is a great resource for office inspiration. I love pinning to my Office Spaceboard on Pinterest.
Yesterday was the official start of summer and of course, National Wear Lilly Pulitzer Day! I kicked off the summer with a wedding shower for one of my dear friends (the perfect occasion to show off some of my favorite Lilly!). In honor of the first official day of summer and the fact that I'm going to the beach in a few days, I have put together a few of my favorite links for you all to check out this week and start your week off right!
Hot temperatures and rainy afternoons means summer has officially arrived in Florida. Even though we are a week away from the official start to the season, I have already been wearing all my favorite summer items.
In honor of the official start of summer only being a week away, I have put together three of my favorite summer looks.
1. C Wonder Rope Knot Ring Set | I am a total sucker for rings. I love wearing simple small rings. I wear one on my right hand every day. I feel naked if I go a day without it. This C. Wonder knot ring set is the perfect way to add a hint of nautical to any everyday look.
2. Pink Sleeve Black Bow Stripe Mini Dress | Stripes and bows, what could be better than that? This dress combines all of my favorite things... bows, pink, navy and stripes! It's the perfect summer item.
3. Kate Spade Cedar Street Crossbody Bag | Crossbody bags are the perfect bags for just about any occasion. Whether your going to a night out with friends or a day of shopping, cross body bags are the perfect way to carry all the necessities while keeping your hands free.
4. J.Crew Seville Wedge Espadrilles | I absolutely love these wedges. J.Crew has had similar espadrille wedges for the past few years and I have been lusting after them ever sense. I may have to pull the trigger and order a pair
5. J.Crew Skimmer Pant | The J.Crew Skimmer pant is one of my all time spring, summer and fall pants. I own numerous pairs in various colors and patterns. This patterned pair is perfect for summer, don't you think?
I always procrastinate when it comes to buying gifts for friends and family. I am constantly shopping online and seeing great deals, but rarely buying. I typically wait to the last minute and then run to a local boutique or grab a gift card. I highly recommend keeping a few easy gifts on hand for a last minute hostess gift or birthday party. Wine or specialty food items are always great go-to hostess gifts, but many occasions call for more personal gifts.
One Kings Lane always has the greatest home decor items for fantastic prices! This weekend I was browsing their sales and found some adorable nautical pillows. I am such a sucker for anything nautical, especially during the summer!
FYI - Father's Day is in just over one week! So don't forget dear 'ole dad. I always have a hard time picking out just the right thing for my dad. He buys just about everything he ever needs or wants for himself, so it's hard to buy him gifts.
I decided to put together a few things that dads might enjoy at a variety of price points.
Hey Y'all! I am so excited to be participating in Kendra Thornoton's Miami fashion challenge. Kendra is a travel expert and PR professional who has appeared on major television networks across the country and made special guest appearances on shows like The Nate Show and The Tyra Banks Show.
**** Note from Kendra about the Fashion Challenge ****
I love going
to Miami! There's something about the air in South Florida that's just
refreshing and exhilarating. I'm going to get plenty of sun with my husband
when I visit South Beach. I'm so ecstatic that I can hardly wait to go.
Planning the actual trip was super easy on the convenient userrated website gogobot. We have gotten all of our reservations and
activities organized, but there's still one thing left. My wardrobe needs a
serious upgrade from mommy to hot mami in Miami. I'm hoping that you can help
me select some different looks for my trip. These are some details to help you
pick out a few things.
Our first days
in Miami are going to be spent on the beach. There's a lot to explore in South
Beach like the boardwalk and historic district, but there are also a few
different local restaurants here and a crazy nightlife. Any outfits that I pick
have to translate from the beach to exploring Miami and then getting all dolled
up for a night on the town.
We are staying
in one of the nicer hotels in South Beach called the Delano Hotel. It's located
right on the water and has some exceptional amenities like plush suits, huge
pool and a 3,200 rooftop spa that I am dying to go to. My husband booked a full
day for me there! The spa is called Club Essentia, and it's a one-of-a-kind
place in South Beach to get skincare treatments, facials, massage therapy and
nail care. I'm going to feel completely pampered.
need a more modern bathing suit to hit the beaches in South Beach. Every photo
showed off a society of fashionistas who belonged in a magazine or catalog. I
need to toss out all of my old jeans and t-shirts for some posh casual looks to
wear around Miami. I know that you all can help me come up with some terrific
looks that will work no matter how hot it gets on the dance floor or the beach.
I’m so excited to present this challenge to you and hope that you are just as
excited to help me find some new digs to wear. I'm looking forward to seeing
your selections and featuring them in pictures from my trip.
