Sweater Weather

511A064C-646A-45D5-84DF-18386B84BEE3

Fall is absolutely hands-down my favorite season of the year! Although we don’t get much “fall” weather in South FL, when we do, I’m ecstatic to wear sweaters. I do travel quite often so I have even more of a chance to wear them. Just recently, I purchased this fabulous Lace-up sweater from AMAZON! It was only $18 and came in two days. You have to love Amazon Prime! There are several fun colors, and I chose rust…one of my favorite fall colors.

I’ve rounded up a few of my top picks for fall and winter this year, and bonus, they are all under $70! Ruffles, lace-up backs, off the shoulder and bell sleeves are the key to this year’s trend. Neutrals are always a good choice, but don’t be afraid to go for color either! Reds, purples, pinks, oranges and yellows dominate the color palette for fall.

thumb_IMG_0264_1024Summer is here and that means warmer temps, beach days, and cute dresses. I love anything with stripes, especially an easy maxi dress. Just throw it on and go!

I’ve linked all of my goodies below. My dress is currently only left in a few sizes, so I’ve linked similar ones. My clutch is also sold out at the moment, but I found a great replacement by Ralph Lauren.

IMG_0293One of my favorite trends at the moment: Gingham! It’s everywhere, and I couldn’t be happier. When I see gingham, it reminds me of summer barbecues; the lemonade, sunshine, and warm temperatures. It’s a sweet and feminine print that makes, well…HAPPY. I’ve linked my favorites for summer below.

Ruffles and ripped up denim? Yes please! Pairing romantic with edgy pieces is a little more unexpected. While they may seem like opposites- they attract.

I’ve been on a budget lately and have been LOVING all of the pieces I have found. While I tend to buy more premium denim, I found the most perfect, high-wasited pair at Forever 21. And they’re only $29. They fit like a dream.

Because of the edginess, I toned it down with a romantic ruffled cold shoulder blouse, also from Forever 21. The light pink color and chiffon fabric is perfect for summer, and I am also a huge fan of the ruffle cuffs.

I think pumps pair perfectly with this outfit. Mine are old from Zara, but I’ve linked a similar pair here.

My fringe earrings are on sale now at Saks Off 5th for $14! They are also lightweight and go with everything,

Finally, my go-to bag for everything is this one by Vince. I have been getting into all things brown lately–and I literally carry this bag with everything. I found this at my local Saks Off 5th, but linked a similar one here from Nordstrom that’s under $50!

Happy summer shopping and styling!

Travel Chic

There’s nothing I love more than traveling. Whether it’s for work or play, something about taking flight and getting out of dodge is certainly my cup of tea.

I travel often for work…especially heading to markets to buy for my boutique. It’s one of my favorite parts of the job. I get to see all of the upcoming trends, meet the designers, and get inspired by the gorgeous colors and fabrics for the upcoming seasons.

It can be challenging to dress trendy for traveling and also for being on my feet all day. I tend to head straight from the airport to market, and that’s really early in the am, and AFTER waking up and trying to get ready with a 19 month old. It can be challenging to say the least! I usually try to plan ahead, but sometimes I’ve got to just “throw it together.”

This morning was no exception. I am thankful I have these staple pieces in my closet that keep me comfy and stylish at the same time. Of course, a hat is a must for those rushed mornings.

I am OBSESSED with these workout leggings by Koral. They truly double as a liquid legging- you can wear them to work out or wear them out! They are incredibly comfy and flattering. I could live in them.

I paired it with an easy pullover I got from H&M ($24.99!) that is lightweight enough to wear in FL, and also good for layering when I get to my colder destination.

I just got these sneakers from Adidas and love them! They are like a cloud! I am a runner, so I wanted something that was stylish but also serves double duty: I can wear them out and about on the town or to the gym.

I’ve linked similar items to all of the styles I’m wearing below. Catch ya on the flip side when I get to my destination! Make sure to follow me on Instagram to see all of my latest #ootds @lala_styled.

The 3 Easy, Wearable Trends for Spring

Fashion / Ootd / Outfit / personal styling / Street Style / Style / Uncategorized

cropped-img_4378.jpgSpring is in the air and fashion is in full bloom. Hot from the runways at New York’s Fashion Week, I chose the top three wearable and must-have trends for the upcoming season.

Off the shoulder tops dominated as spring’s hottest go-to piece. I am especially loving linen in soft pastel colors, such as lilac or pale pink. So go ahead, bare those shoulders as the temperatures rise.

Dainty floral prints dominated down the runway, especially skirts paired with bra tops. Designers pushed the envelope and mixed the feminine with a bit of sex appeal.

Chokers- my favorite 90’s revival- are here to stay for the season. From jeweled dazzlers to delicate lace to leather, anything goes. The key is to layer, layer, layer. Chokers work exceptionally well paired with long layered pendants.

 

 

 

February Faves

Hi all! I’m back after a crazy busy month to share with you my faves for the months of Feb.

anastasia

Shadow Couture World Traveler Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills– Ok, I was standing in Urban Outfitters in Times Square, hemming and hawing over an endless amount of eye shadow options. It was my first shopping outing after having the baby, and I was enticed by all of the shimmery, beautiful colors. A girl next to me picked up the shadow palette I was eyeing and couldn’t stop squealing from excitement that she had found it. “I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE for this!” she cried. Low and behold, it was the World Traveler Palette. Of course, I bought it. Her enthusiasm was so intense, I figured this palette must be the Valentino’s of eye shadow.

She was right- I soon came to find myself experimenting with all of the incredible colors- ranging from light peach to intense blue, and everything in between. The pigment in the shadow is absolutely incredible, and it lasts through many vodka-soda-lime nights.

I paid $39 for the palette and it’s going for over $100 on Ebay, apparently it is a limited edition. If you can get your hands on this shadow palette, it’s totally worth it!

sage spoonfuls_1429120012103_16824241_ver1.0_640_480

Sage Spoonfuls– For all of you mamas out there that intend to make your own baby food, I cannot say enough about Sage Spoonfuls! There is little information for new moms on how to feed your baby solid foods, what foods to try, etc.

I was delighted to receive the SS for my baby shower. Liza Huber created a beautiful book outlining what foods to feed baby as well as when to buy organic. Delicious and easy recipes (and some great unexpected food combos that baby will LOVE), plus awesome food jars that are stackable and so easy to travel with! I love the blender it comes with…it is much easier to use than a regular blender.

This makes a great gift for any mom-to-be! You can buy it at Target.

tsamma-watermelon-juice-high-res

Tsamma Juice– As a runner, I  am always looking for a refreshing juice that is packed with nutrients, tastes great, and keeps me hydrated. I love Tsamma watermelon juice because it fuels my body with electrolytes and there’s no added sugar! Believe it or not, there are over 1 1/2 lbs of watermelon cold-pressed and pasteurized in each bottle. You can buy it at the Fresh Market or online.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! I hope everyone had a wonderful February!

XOXO,

January’s Favorite Things

Leave a comment
baby / beauty / product reviews / Uncategorized

I am a lover of all things new; new products land at my door each day and I’m like a kid in a candy store. An overly excited guinea pig, if you will. While I’m more of a fashion blogger, I also love to review items and share my FAVES with my followers. Because what gal doesn’t love a good recommendation?

I have lots of favorite things…so I have decided to write a monthly blog post with my latest and greatest obsessions. Be it the latest mommy products (which seem to take up most of my current budget) to new, innovative brands, I’ll be collecting the best of the best and bringing them to you.

One other note- I am a HUGE proponent of small businesses and their products. If you are interested in me reviewing and featuring your product, feel free to reach out to me at lala_styled@mail.com.

kali 4

Kali Boxes– The organic era is upon us, and I am a huge believer in using pesticide free products. I was SO excited when my good friends and entrepreneurs Jonna Piira and Sara Shake came up with the revolutionary idea to create a monthly box of organic tampons. Not only do you receive the monthly box on autoship (and save those embarrassing moments of checking out with a box of those suckers at the grocery), but you also have the peace of mind knowing you are using ORGANIC. And, for an easy $25, you get the ‘pons, wipettes, and a fun product they change every month or so. This month it’s a gorgeous rosewater refresher spray. Kali is also socially conscience and donates $1 from every box sold to  Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation’s Adolescent Girl Campaign. How amazing is that?! Ladies, do your body a favor and sign up here. You’ll get $5 off your first box with code “ilovekali”.

coco

COCO Cocktail– If you LOVE coconut water like me and if you love an adult beverage like me, you will love that they have combined the two into a perfect tropical concoction. Meet COCO Cocktail, your new refreshing party favorite! It’s a convenient ready-to-drink beverage that offers only the highest quality ingredients. So rest assured, while you get a buzz, you’re also hydrating! COCO Cocktail is available at select WHOLE FOODS and Fresh Markets. For more information, check out their website.

joovy

The JOOVY SPOONAs a new mommy of a 7 month old spirited little boy, I was looking for the perfect walker. Not only does my little tot LOVE to move, but we are also very big into traveling and wanted something we could easily take with us. We were on a New Year’s trip to visit good friends when I discovered the JOOVY. It’s got a super sleek, modern design, and it’s easily foldable (and adjustable for height). But the best part is, it also doubles as a highchair! Easy storage, easy cleaning, and double functions make it a win-win for this traveling mama. BONUS: the padded seat is easily machine washable and this was a cinch to put together (much needed for this working mama!). Check out Joovy’s website here.

I hope you enjoyed this month’s favorite things! Stay tuned for February!

XOXO,
