September Highlights

Month in Review

Shesh Louis I literally can’t believe September is coming to an end. This month flew by with New York Fashion Week, Vegas, and lots and lots of events in between. I have rounded up some of my favorite posts of the month below. Click through and enjoy darlings!

Life: I shared mother dear is one year clear of Breast Cancer so in honor of celebrating her I chose to partner with the Wine Women & Shoes event this month! I had a blast walking the runway for the first time.

Travel: We traveled a whole bunch but sadly I had no time to share #traveltuesdays with you all! I still have so many destinations to share so hopefully I will have sometime this month to get back on track since we don’t have a trip planned until the end of the month 🙂 This month NYFW had to have been the highlight of life. It was everything I dreamed of and more and I shared some parts of it below. Along with a Vegas trip!

You know I am a huge dress girl so when I discovered jumpers, they equally are the equivalent. I am all about comfort and easy looks so this jumpsuit creates an entire look. Adding black accessories like a choker and a bag was also an easy peasy task. This color is also perfect. Sadly a couple of sizes are sold out but luckily I found a small on sale. I say get em fast because this would be perfect for those friendsgivings or upcoming holiday parties. I did want to know if you all are starting to shop for the holidays or when do you start? The procrastinator that I am starts shopping in December but I am hoping the blog will keep me accountable this year around. Also when do you all start shopping for winter clothes? I feel like its way to early but maybe when temps drop and October finally hits around, I may get into the mood.

Happy Thursday boos! This is one of my fav looks so I hope you enjoy it. Today I get to walk in a fashion show for mommy dear for I go Pink. I decided to take on a charity event this year and when I Go Pink came around in support of Breast Cancer, I knew it was the perfect fit. Mother is one year clear of breast cancer and I am so honored to walk in the fashion show for her. I am excited for a night out with mother and hubs! Follow along on snapchat for more 🙂 “dederaad”

Top: Jones New York | Skirt: Leather | Denim Jacket: Moto | Shoes: Sole Society | Clutch: Etsy

Since I shared my favorite color crush of the season, serenity blue yesterday, I wanted to style this blue top for you all in two different ways. This top from Jones New York has been my recent favorite hence we I decided to style it in light and dark way. I also am human and wear shirts multiple times but you might notice it since I spread them out but here I decided to share them together 🙂

Blue & White: The first look is a more white light look pairing it with white jeans and fun colorful earrings. It reminds me more of a summery look but hey there are no rules and definitely can be worn right now. I loved how layering necklaces turned out and plan to do it more often.

Blue & Black: Now blue and black can be tricky but obviously can be done. I paired it with a fun leather skirt, some lighter color boots and the cutest clutch you ever did see. The denim jacket, or any shoulder, has been a trend lately and worked so well with this outfit. The denim also tied in the light blue.

Would love to hear your favorite look of the two! Happy hump day loves.

Gah how perfect is this color. I have mentioned Pantone colors before but if you do not know what a pantone color is, let me enlighten you. A panel comes together every year and chooses 1 color that will be the leading color of the year. This year 2016 was unique in a way that 2 colors were chosen – serenity blue and rose quartz. These two colors are so dreamy together and represent a number of meanings like gender equality and peace. I spoke about these colors at an event I hosted a while back and learned a lot about Pantone. Today I wanted to share Serenity blue that I have been all heart eyes about. I have been gravitating towards this color every time I go shopping and wanted to give you all the fair warning that you should be too!

I am planning on ordering this dress and this jumper. Happy Tuesday / #buttercupcrush babes. It means the world that you all stopped by. Cheers to another busy week!
