On the Bright Side

Over the years I’ve added a ton of fun and festive sunglasses to my collection. The price tag on something like shades doesn’t matter to me, in fact, my favorite pair cost me a whopping $5 at Forever21. That said, I am addicted to shopping for new shades on Ditto.com! A new pair is always ready for you at just $24/month and when you’re over those, send them back with a provided pre-paid shipping label and get a new pair. This service is my new guilty pleasure, and it can be yours too! Use my code THERACHELROSS to get your first month free!

I adore these sunglasses! They are so bright and fun! I’ve been really hesitant to try the round shape trend because it can be tricky to pull off but when I saw these with the bright pink mirrored lenses I had to try them out. Side note! How cute is this top from Two Arrows Brand? They just started selling in my favorite store, South Moon Under, and I already want everything! They have a very laid back vibe and I’m pretty sure I’ll be living in their clothes all summer. rachel15rachel16

It’s starting to feel like Spring already and I’m not mad at it! I’m sure we’ll have a few bitter days before the winter really leaves for good but I’ll take it. I can’t wait to swap out my boots and heels for some open toes and gladiator sandals, amiright?

No Pants No Problem

I’ve said it over and over and over again, these boots give me LIFE. I think they’re probably the best thing Matt’s ever bought for me, and definitely the one gift I’ve actually gotten the most use out of. I did ask for another pair in another color for Christmas but I didn’t get it.. womp womp! HAH. I’ve tried on other over the knee boots but NONE have been as comfortable as these. I’ve walked laps around New York City in these boots, spent long nights at concerts standing and dancing the entire time in these boots, you name it, I’ve done it and I have not felt the need to complain once yet. Splurge on these if you splurge on anything in your life. They are so worth it.

I wore this outfit last month when we went into Asbury to see Grace Potter perform at the Paramount Theater. As I said, I was standing and dancing all night in these boots and did not have to limp back to my car after, hah.

I have so many flannel shirt dresses in my closet now. I love how comfortable and casual they are. They can also be worn open as a vest or buttoned up as a dress, as shown above. When it gets too cold I throw on leather leggings and ankle booties to create a different look that won’t freeze my butt off.

Date Night Style with South Moon Under

So by now it’s no secret that South Moon Under has quickly shot up to my favorite store in the area. They have a little bit of everything at every price point. They have the most glorious accessories table I have ever seen, plus a ton of stuff for your home which makes it my favorite one stop shop. BUT! Did you know they also have a mens section? And a pretty fantastic one at that! With the help of Matt we’re showing you how to get ready for your next date night together!

What I love about these pants that Matt’s wearing is that they’re like not really denim, not really pants. They’re some weird hybrid. They could kind of pass for casual with a t-shirt but also look great dressed up with a white button down, as worn here. And guys, if you do one thing in life it should definitely be to buy this sweatshirt. It’s literally the most comfortable thing in the entire world, and yes, I’m pretty sure I’ve already stolen it and hid it in the depths of my closet to keep for myself. IMG_6441

Matt is not exactly an “in front of the camera” kind of guy. Honestly he’s not even a behind the camera kinda guy. He acted like he was all nervous and uncomfortable, but look at him… a natural. IMG_6447 IMG_6448 IMG_6432This skirt gives me liiiiiife. Can I just say I feel like that saucy little emoji every time I wear it. You know the one I mean… in the red dress, of course. Add this pink crop top and fringe heels from Steve Madden and fuggeddaboutit. So ready for a night on the town!

At the Roman Luxe trunk show a few weeks ago these earrings were one of the best sellers! So naturally I snagged a pair for myself before they sold out, ha! I’ve been wearing them pretty much nonstop since. They’re the perfect size, not too small to be a plain stud but not too big to be uncomfortable. I’m totally diggin them! Side note; you can get your own pair at 50% off right now! They’re on sale and under $30. SCORE! IMG_6427 IMG_6428 IMG_6449

So, in conclusion, start your next date night early and go shopping together! At South Moon Under, of course! Help each other pick out cute outfits, help your guy find a shirt that goes with his jeans, or anything that matches if he happens to be colorblind like my husband.. ha. Enjoy your night out! ;]
