It sounds like a cliché, but I'm a sucker for long walks along the beach at sunset. Especially if it means I can wear a glamorous floral dress. I love wearing maxi dresses during the spring, because they're perfect for sunny days and breezy nights (just add a denim jacket!). I fell head over heels for this little number because it's pink, hugs my body in all the right places, has a fabulous cut out back and it's so feminine! I couldn't help but pair this dress with a cute woven bag, I've been obsessed with bags like these, they remind me of little picnic baskets and they're totally on trend right now. They're so versatile and go with just about everything. I paired this outfit with cute nude sandals and a pair of gold hoops. I'm also a huge fan of little white dresses, like the one that my blogger babe, Sydne, is wearing! Lulu's has a huge selection of white dresses and I swear I want to buy Every. Single. One.

As much as I love maxi dresses, I'm also a fan of mini dresses with lots of lace. For night outs with my fiancé, or if I have a summer wedding to attend, I love wearing something that will hug my curves and make a statement. This blue lace dress did just that! I swear the lace pattern on this dress is even more gorgeous in person, I'm obsessed and already can't wait to wear it again. I definitely wanted this dress to be the center of attention, so I added a few simple sparkles to keep the focus on it.

When it comes to any type of occasion, Lulu's has it all! They do a phenomenal job at keeping up with all the new trends and this spring they're all about floral, color, and maxi dresses - all of my favorite things.

What are some of your favorite spring and summer trends?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

When I want to feel a little more easy breezy in the spring and summer, I can't help but to pick out a long, sheer dress. For sunny days, nothing feels better on the skin than the touch of something silky and lightweight. I've been a fan of dresses like these for as long as I can remember. They're absolutely perfect for sunny days, pair them with a cute pair of flats and you're ready to get started with your day. For this look, I didn't want to take any attention from the dress, because the print is gorgeous. However, I did match my lipstick with the pink flowers and I loved how my look turned out! I also added this chic forest green bag and some minimal earrings that I've been obsessed with.

What are your favorite dresses to wear in the spring?

Hot spring days always call for a nice straw hat and a cute polka dot dress that makes a girl want to twirl around all day! The girly girl in me was thrilled to wear this polka dotted dress this past weekend. The weather was easy breezy and I knew it was the perfect day to wear this for a quick stroll around the park.

I’ve always been obsessed with prints like polka dots, because they never go out of style. It’s a print that has been around for ages and there’s always a different type of style that suits each and every single personality. I, for one, LOVE huge polka dots, because they’re girly, feminine, and bold. All of my favorite things! I especially loved that this was a heart shaped dress, for sunny days in the spring, it’s always nice to show a little bit of skin and get a golden glow from the sun.

Since I was going to be walking around the park with my fiancé, I opted for a comfy pair of baby blue loafers and my chic handbag. I loved how this look turned out, a perfect outfit for a perfect day!

Are you into polka dots as much as I am?

Recently, I talked about how 90's fashion is making a huge come back in the fashion industry and I couldn't be happier. Suits should be a staple in everyone's closet - men and women! Why? Because there's something about a great suit that can make a woman feel confident, sexy and powerful, which are all the essential things to make you feel like a complete #girlboss. I definitely recommend finding a suit that suits your style (see what I did there!?) Even if your job doesn't require you to wear a one, go and find a suit that makes you feel like a bad ass! Especially because I am a firm believer in dressing for the job/career/position you want - not the one you have. If you want the big fancy title and the corner office, look the part.

You all know how much I love pink, so this pink suit was practically screaming my name as soon as I saw it. I loved that it hugged my curves in all the right places and it didn't make me look boxy. The open slits on the side of the pants really modernized the overall look and made it a bit more unique. I decided to pair it with a bell sleeve top, a black baker boy hat, a pair of houndstooth pumps and my classic Chanel purse. I loved how this outfit turned out, because it looked feminine and classy yet powerful - perfect for a busy day of meetings.

Are you into the suit trend right now? What are some of your fave styles?

I never thought that I would be able to say comfortable, stylish and premium leather in the same sentence, but my ECCO flats and little red crossbody bag were a total game changer! I wanted a look that would be perfect for strolling around the streets of Downtown LA, pretending to be a tourist, on a warm spring afternoon and as much as I love stilettos, I knew they weren't the right call. Never wanting to sacrifice fashion for function, I opted for a pair of silver pointed-toed flats by ECCO. Their shoes are crafted from fine Italian leather making them a wardrobe staple that is guaranteed to stand the test of time. I paired my flats with my red ECCO crossbody (in an equally supple, delicious, Italian leather) a denim midi skirt, a striped sweater and a feminine neck scarf for a Paris-meets-Los Angeles inspired look. Of course, any time that I'm buying new shoes or accessories, Zappos is my go-to because of their fast, free shipping and hassle free returns. Everyone knows that waiting for your new shoes to arrive in the mail is definitely the worst part of online shopping, so why not get them faster with Zappos? I know, such a no-brainer!

What's you go-to outfit when you're looking for something stylish and comfortable?

Thanks so much for reading!

Sure, the 3 hour drive in bumper-to-bumper traffic and the fact that my hair was in a constant state of frizz the whole time that I was in the Hamptons was a bit of a bummer, but the charm of Montauk surpassed all of the quirks that came with it. I always hear New Yorkers talk about "going to the Hamptons". They do it in such a way that makes you feel like you need to see what it's all about. They make it sound like this peaceful escape from the craziness of New York City, and that is exactly what it was. Once you get on to Long Island, Montauk seems like a lifetime away (cue the are we there yets!) since it is the furthest east point on the island, but with the never ending drive comes never ending views. Danny, Laura and I spent our days eating Ice Cream and strolling the streets of Bridgehampton and our nights watching the waves crash along the shore in Montauk. This day was by far once of my favorites. There was no one at the beach but us, It was like we rented it out for the day and it was perfect for decompressing after a hectic time in the city.

When I clothes my eyes tightly, I still hear the sound of the Atlantic ocean and feel the sand between my toes. I don't miss the humidity, but I do miss all of the memories that we made in Montauk.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

One of the most romantic days of the year is right around the corner! I love Valentine’s Day, because it’s the perfect occasion to get glam, go out, and show your loved one just how much you truly love them. This year, I wanted to have a couple of options for Valentine's Day, so I got three different dresses from Lulu's. Lulu's is the perfect place to shop for Valentine's, they have so many options for everyone. If you want something that hugs your curves in all the right places, Lulu's is the place. If you want something a little more chic and laid back, Lulu's won't disappoint and if you want something flirty yet ladylike Lulu's has that too! One of the reasons why I love them so much is because there are so many options, not just for Valentine’s Day, but for any special occasion. I visit their site when I have a fancy dinner to go to, an anniversary to celebrate with my fiancé, or simply just to treat myself.

I fell absolutely head over heels for these dresses, the first one caught my eye because of the back opening. I think it’s absolutely stunning when a woman shows her back, it’s elegant, feminine and sexy. Usually, red is the choice of color for V-Day, but this year, I wanted to try burgundy instead. Next, red is usually my go-to shade for Valentine's Day but this time I thought I'd find a flirty LBD. The embroidery on this dress was gorgeous. It's simple, yet striking. Perfect for a Valentine's or "galentine's" (if you will) dinner with girlfriends. Velvet was another texture that I wanted to try this year. I loved this dress because it was classy yet sexy and oh so soft. I paired it with my faux fur coat to mix textures and for a glamorous monochromatic look.

Just because it's Valentine's Day, it doesn't mean that you have to go all out. Don't stress! Remember to show your loved one how much you love them with a simple gesture. A text that says 'have a nice day,' a handwritten card, or a simple 'good morning, handsome' can mean the absolute world to them. It's always the little things that count. I hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day!

What type of looks do you gravitate towards on the most romantic day of the year?
