Semi Casual

Remember when I posted last week and was like, heyyy I’m gonna wear nothing but sneakers for a while and give my feet a break from the extremely painful and uncomfortable heels…. yeah I lied.

When I posted a picture of this necklace on my instagram last week I got a ton of comments about my shirt. Surprisingly, this is almost 10 years old, haha! I’ve literally had it since AT LEAST 2007, if not earlier. I held on to it because I knew turtlenecks would come back into style eventually. While this one is most definitely no longer available, I threw together some of my favorite turtleneck finds in my newest Mavatar collection below!

I’m not normally one to complain about snow, but these bitter cold days we have had were occurring all too often! I am so ready for sun dresses and open toe shoes, amiright? Don’t forget to check out my newest Mavatar collection below stocked full with turtlenecks of all different styles hand picked just for you! AND! I am super excited to announce something I have been working on later this week and I literally cannot wait for you guys to see it so be sure to stop back soon! :]

Travel Diaries: Don’t be Crabby

I bought this shirt from H&M a few weeks ago before I had even booked my vacation. I had planned on just holding on to it until the summer, but it was the first thing I packed after I planned my trip. It has such a breezy vibe to it, it’s the perfect top to wear to a beach side dinner.

The weather in Naples was so amazing. We spent most of our time at the beach, which was perfect. The sun was hot but there was a constant breeze which made the heat seem bearable. That is ideal weather, isn’t it?

The decor is like everything Shabby Chic you absolutely love in Home Goods, put together in a very neat fashion from DIY chalk boards to antique wood tables. It is so charming! We also swear their food is magic. We both ordered french toast, hers with fruit, mine with cannoli cream filling…. I was on vacation, don’t judge me. We ate almost everything and didn’t feel stuffed, ya know? Like I didn’t hate myself after I scoffed down 3 slices of thick french toast smothered in cannoli cream. We loved it so much we went back the next day. This time we opted for the donut holes appetizer and both ate something a LITTLE healthier. The donut holes are reason enough to visit this place, promise! Here’s another gorgeous photo of my cousin! (she’s probably mad at me for posting these, haha, but she’s beautiful! Love you, Moll!)

Travel Diaries: Part Uno

So remember my last post when I said I needed to get away for a little mental vacation? Yeah. Totally did that. My cousin and I jet set off to warmer temperatures for a quick (WAY TOO QUICK) girls weekend! I think I must have been a flower in a past life because the sun light literally awakens me! It was exactly what I needed.

I seemed to have inherited the worst things from my mother’s side of the family. She is Greek, Italian, and Irish. I got the Greek hair, Irish skin, and Italian temper. Lovely. Just lovely. I would have loved Italian and Greek skin, with the Irish luck (and drinking ability, no such luck, obviously). You would think after days of doing nothing but baking myself under the hot sun I’d have at least something to show for it.


IMG_4006 So right before I left for vacation, literally right before…the day before, I remembered that my two puppies ate my favorite pairs of sandals at the end of the summer. Awesome. So I ran to Target to see if they had any summer footwear on stock. Much to my surprise, and delight, they had a TON of sandals and flip flops on clearance, PLUS an extra 50% off. I got a pair of flip flops for $.88 guys. 88 CENTS! Say whaaat? Cray. These sandals were only $7. I love me a good deal!  IMG_4010

This little dock was one of my cousin’s favorite places (her family has owned a condo down here for years, this is like her second home…literally). Her Grandfather also loved this spot. We sat out here for a while and looked at all the wild life. There was a giant turtle bobbing along below us that was just adorable. By the way, how beautiful is my cousin? Girlfriend has a gift for getting the perfect accessory shot, as seen above. haha!

If you’re looking for an easy way to wear a crop top into the cooler months, look for one that is long sleeved. You’re not going to get the same breezy summer look as you would with a short sleeve or tank crop top, but since it’s the winter I wouldn’t really think that’s a look you’re going for right now anyway. Also, this one in particular has a little extra length than the normal crops, so you’re not exposing too much to the cold.

I love these pants. They’re like high waisted track pants that tie around the waist in the most flattering spot! I snagged them almost two years ago from Forever21 and they’re all over the place now. Everyone should own a pair, they’re super easy to dress up or down, as well as being comfortable and flattering. After a night out in this outfit I slipped on my favorite Nine West slip on sneaks to make this look a little more relaxed. IMG_7818 IMG_7822 IMG_7823linea pelle bagThe weather yesterday was simply amazing, wasn’t it? If it could stay like this until Christmas day, then snow, then get warm again I’d be perfectly happy. Anwyay! Don’t forget to shop my Mavatar collection by clicking the button below! As I said up there, 100% of the proceeds from this collection will be donated to the St. Jude’s Children Hospital. So get in the holiday spirit and do a little shopping to give back!
