Donald J Pliner Fall Collection Preview

Can we talk about fall trends? I know you would say summer is barely here, how can we focus on fall. I promise once you see what I mean, you will be saying fall can’t come soon enough!

This weekend I had the privilege to hang out at Donald J Pliner‘s boutique at The Forum Shops in Las Vegas and preview his fall shoe collection. From flats to heels, nudes to brights, there is a pair for every taste. Personally, I always go for the statement shoe – you can see my favorites from the new collection below. The colors scream fall yet the styles are so fun, especially the embellishments and fur accents.

Everything from the fall collection is available for pre-order only. If you can’t wait, there are plenty of summer styles to choose from. Better yet, take advantage of the 30% extra off of sales items. Don’t even get me started on the men’s styles – this deserves a post of its own.

And remember, “Life is too short to wear boring shoes.”

Sporty Summer Look With AMI Clubwear

Hello world!

I just got back from Cancun, but obviously I’m still in vacation mode. I have explored Mexico quite a bit, but this was my first time visiting the East coastline. You can get a glimpse of some of my adventures on Instagram.

Whether you are planning to go on an exotic beach getaway, rocking at a music festival in the desert or simply heading to a quick staycation, you need the 411 on swimwear. Here I opted for a sporty look featuring this AMI Clubwear two piece bikini. The tribal print and the colors are super fun, especially once you get a nice tan going (not like my sunburn in the photos – #fail!). The double straps on the top are adjustable, so you can wear it as loose or tight as you wish. What I love the most about this swim piece is that you can simply pair it with shorts, a couple classic accessories and you are ready to hit the pool party!

For those of you who prefer a more feminine and sophisticated look, opt for a kimono or similar sheer cover-up. You might also like my beach glam look featuring a one-piece swimsuit from AMI Clubwear. If you can’t decide which one you love more, you can get both for less than $50! Better yet, you can use code SWIM60 for 60% off currently on the website.

Vamos a la playa!

April Wine Walk at Red Rock

Happy Easter, everyone! 🐰

As a family that doesn’t follow all the usual traditions, we skipped the holiday brunch today, but we did enjoy a fun event this Easter weekend. My husband and I had a great date night at the April Wine Walk at Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa last night. All you can drink wine at nine different stations throughout the resort ranging from white to red to rose and champagne, say whaaat!


Our first stop was at Hearthstone – one of my favorite restaurants at Red Rock Casino. The food is amazing, but can we talk best Instagram photo opps?


Another favorite of mine, Salute Trattoria Italiana served a large selection of Pacific Northwest wines. It’s our go-to dessert spot and here’s a tip – get the sampler and try a little bit of everything.


Finally, after a few more glasses, we headed to the pool area for a private DJ party where we had, well more wine! I couldn’t believe how perfect the weather was after so many windy days in Vegas lately. The Red Rock Pool is a great place to enjoy good company, some food and sips. If you can’t make it to the pool, I highly recommend the T Bones patio.


Wait, I almost forgot to share the details about my outfit! I was debating wearing a dress, but I decided on this flirty bodysuit from Tobi.com. The cold shoulder is just perfect for the season and our weather here. I love the color – it goes with everything, and the style makes it such a versatile piece. I can’t wait to pair it with a skirt for another night out. It is available here for less than $50 along with many other cute bodysuits on Tobi.com you can choose from.


How was your Easter weekend? I’m ready to wind down and start a new week tomorrow.

Beach Glam With AMI Clubwear

Spring break is almost here, and I sure am looking forward to our Cancun vacay! I have been to Mexico several times, but it will be a first to this destination. I am excited to go somewhere warm and relax on the beach for days.

Regardless of your vacation destination, you will want to pack some fun pieces in your suitcase. I have been looking for the perfect swimsuit for a while, and finally found it! Being a mom, I rely a lot on the one-piece styles, but I still want to look cute. I have been obsessed with the tropical floral prints this year, and this AMI Clubwear swimsuit is just gorgeous! The best part is you can get it here for only $25. Now, that’s a steal!

The fit is very elegant, and paired with this long duster creates a nice silhouette. If you’re looking for a more stylish and glam look, this is a great option.

If you are into the sporty and casual look, stay tuned… I will be featuring another option for those of you. However, rocking both looks depending on your mood is the way to go!

Have a great weekend. ❤

From Dayclub to Happy Hour With Tobi.com

Anyone getting ready for a spring break beachy vacay? Or perhaps your next Vegas trip with the girls? No matter where you are headed to, packing can be daunting, especially if you’re going to a new place. If you are like me and you like to travel light instead of overpacking, keep reading!

I’ve always been a huge fan of items that I can wear multiple ways. Here I’m wearing this cute cold shoulder shift dress from Tobi.com that I can easily turn from a summer cover-up to a night-time outfit. The cotton material isn’t pretentious, so it’s easy to wear with pretty much any accessories or shoes you like. The color is neutral, which makes the dress very versatile. Last but not least, the cold shoulder gives you that sexy/flirty look that you need either for the beach or a night out! Whether you throw in a scarf, hat or a belt, you can give it a unique look. You can get it here for under $30 along with other great items for your vacation.

Chinese Flare And a Pop of Color

Hello world!

I know it’s been a while since my last blog post, but I hope you really enjoy this one.

If you follow my posts regularly, you have probably noticed that I’m all about the right accessories. Most of my outfits are really not that special, but it’s the styling that complements them. I got these Chinese earrings as a gift, and I think they make the perfect statement jewelry piece while adding a pop of color. I am also obsessed with shoes, especially heels! I scored this L.A.M.B. pair on Ebay a couple years ago for around $30. If you are a L.A.M.B. fan, you realize this is a total steal! I know they may look painful but I must say that these and another L.A.M.B. heels are the most comfortable ones I’ve ever worn. Now that doesn’t mean I would pay full price for them. 🙂

Finally, this Mango chain leather bag is on sale here. The velvet slip-on dress is also on sale on Mango here.

Velvet and Pleats

I’ve always loved the vintage vibe pleated skirts have. They look so chic if only they fit right! Being so short, I’ve never been able to find a pleated skirt that creates a flattering silhouette on my frame. That’s why when I found these pleated pants at Bershka in Mexico City, I immediately fell in love. Not to mention the rich color and gorgeous fabric. At first, I thought they would be hard to style, but once I got them in my closet I realized that they can be worn in so many ways.  I would love to wear them to a night out paired with my favorite Ted Baker stilettos and a nice blouse. For a day at the office, a white button-down and a pair of squared heel pumps will do. The possibilities are endless…
