VACATION STYLE - VENICE

Outfit 1 details: (TopSkirt / Kimono) H&M / Sandals:: Target / Necklace:: House of Harlow 1960
Outfit 2 details: Dress:: Cynthia Rowley (old) / Sandals:: Kenneth Cole / Handbag:: Vintage Coach / Necklace, Ring & Bracelet:: House of Harlow 1960 ( herehere & here) / Sunglasses:: Coach

Venice, Italy oh how I love and adore thee! Even though we visited some beautiful  places on our trip, Venice stole my heart! Wait; scratch that, I left my heart in Venice. Words can't describe the beauty of the place and how relaxing it is. Apart from the delicious food and countless slices of Pizza I devoured, what I enjoyed most was walking around San Marco and visiting St. Mark's square, Rialto Bridge, the Basilica and other sites. I thoroughly enjoyed walking through the alleys while gazing upon the beautiful blue skies and freshly washed linens  hanging from window.

I loved that there were no cars! Everything was transported via water and in more ways than one, the place was a maze; there were occasions when we walked around a few times and couldn't help but laugh. Venice exceeded my expectations and I am so in love, I can't wait to visit again. The only bummer was that Marlon and I didn't get to go on a Gondola ride as planned because it rained a bit the evening we planned to go and the temps dropped so there was no way I was getting on the water. I can't wait to visit again!

TIE DYE & BIRTHDAYS

Outfit details: Dress: Lulus / Sandals: Kenneth Cole (old - last summer) Similar / Necklace: Gorjana (similar here & here) / Watch: Michael Kors

My husband and I share a God daughter and on Sunday she turned 4! It's incredible to watch her grow, it seemed like it was only yesterday she was a baby and now she's a "big girl". For her birthday, my husband likes to take pictures of her in whatever cute little outfit her mom dresses her in. Since she was having a little pool party, I wanted to dress as cool and as kid friendly as possible so I opted for this tie-dye maxi which was perfect for the occasion. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

VIOLET

Outfit details: Top: H&M / Pants: Loft (sold out in the color I'm wearing) / Shoes: Enzo Angiolini Leealder (Sold Out) / Handbag: Tory Burch

I love a bright pair of pants for work and while I love pairing them with other bright colors, sometimes a neutral color is a go to for me, since it makes the pants stand out more. This pair of violet pants is one of my favorites, I have worn it with a combination of colors and they still seem to stand out; such a gorgeous color, plus Loft can never do wrong in my book, because at 5'3" I never have to worry about finding the perfect fit at their store.

VACATION STYLE - Colombières-sur-Orb

Colombières-sur-Orb is the most gorgeous little french village in the South of France. We were there for our friends wedding and they couldn't have picked a more picturesque location. The drive from Montpellier was absolutely stunning! Vineyards, greenery, villages, castles, at one point I felt like I was in a medieval movie. The Chateau where we stayed along with other wedding guest was unbelievably beautiful. I can't stop talking about the wedding it was one of the most beautiful wedding Marlon and I have attended and everyone was so lovely. I can honestly say it was the best group of people I've been around in a very long time. We ate delicious food, drank lots of champagne and danced until the wee hours of the morning.
How gorgeous are the dresses Marianne chose for us? I have gotten so many compliments and questions about this dress!
