Summer has officially kicked off! I don’t know about you, but I think that’s one fantastic reason to celebrate. I’m ready to kick back, throw on some shades, and… Wait, specifically what shades you ask? Well, I plan on celebrating summer with six of the best possible sunnie styles that I’ve found this season. I’m beyond excited to announce that I’ve teamed up with the popular eyewear brand, Foster Grant this summer, to show you my absolute favorite shades from their collection. I’m crushing over these styles, and I have a feeling that you will love them too.
What is that one thing in your life that makes you truly happy? What inspires you? What makes your heart skip a beat? It’s easy to get caught up in life’s daily grind. You may feel that you’re at a standstill right now. Let’s discover something that makes you happy; something you really love. Today, I’m sharing the story of the creation of Sleepless in Sequins, along with some tips to begin your own passion project.
Summer sundresses, picnic blankets, and a polo match? Yes please! Top that off with some Veuve Clicquot bubbly, and you’ve got yourself a perfectly dreamy afternoon at one of NYC’s swakiest events, the Ninth Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. The match is held at Liberty State Park, and is a competition between Nacho Figueras’ Team Black Watch and Team Veuve Clicquot. This year, we attended with event with two of our closest friends, Nick and Blair.
Memorial Day Weekend is behind us, and you know what that means? It’s time to “up” your little white dress game, and take a nose dive into my favorite season; summer! Lucky for you, I’m here to help. If you’ve been following Sleepless in Sequins for awhile, you know that little white dresses are the bubbles to my champagne. I have too many to count. Therefore, I’ve taken my little white dress closet inspiration, and found a ten, devine dresses that I know you’ll adore. So, follow my lead and shop until you drop. Several of these beauties are on sale, too. The sunshine is calling your name, is it not? I thought so! I hope you had a lovely holiday weekend. As always, if you need wardrobe help, or a bit of style inspiration, shoot me an email. I’m happy to help. Lots of love from me, in sunny NYC!
What makes you happy? Is it the big stuff or the small stuff? Maybe it’s both. This past weekend, I spent treating myself to the little things that I love, and it made such a difference in my weekend. I cherish the quiet moments in my days; the ones with the sunshine on my face, walking through the park, while sipping on a latté from my favorite coffee shop. So, I did just that.
Activewear is all the rage right now, and I’m addicted to buying it (#help). Every brand from sportswear to designer collections are stepping up their athleisure game. I somehow go through more of my gym wardrobe in a week, than my daily outfits, therefore I find myself constantly buying new activewear pieces. I shouldn’t, but I just can’t resist.
Activewear and street style are blurring the lines, in the trends we are seeing right now. Design details such as shimmering textiles, mesh fabrics, and cut out pieces, are incorporated into sleek, sassy silhouettes. This makes it simple to transition your fitness gear to street style clothing using the same pieces…depending on your activity level, of course. I wouldn’t try it after any of my cardio classes, however maybe after an easy, breezy barre class, you could pull it off. With that said, here are the styles I’m currently crushing over. Check these out for your next sweat sesh. Happy shopping!
This past weekend, the sun finally came out to play in NYC, and we celebrated Mother’s Day. My mom lives out of state, and unfortunately we didn’t get to spend the holiday together. While I miss her everyday, this weekend got me thinking about the female figures in my life.
Eight years ago, I met a boy from Kentucky. Call it chance, call it coincidence, or call it serendipity, but he walked into my life and chose to stick around all of these years. I’m sure glad he did. The day we met, I could’ve sworn to you that we had absolutely nothing in common. We were as opposite as could be. We met online and he flew here to visit me from Kentucky. Little did I know, that I would spend years traveling back and forth, during our long distance relationship, and eventually he’d become my Instagram husband (and my real one too).
Yep! Hello, ice cream! It was 9am on Saturday morning, when I walked into my favorite gelato cafe, Paciugo, while on our vaca in St. Pete. I’m pretty sure I was the only girl at the crack of dawn, ordering a triple scoop cone of gelato with sprinkles. “Hi sir. I’ll have a waffle cone with 3 scoops, please. I’d like the violet (because it’s purple, obviously), next the mint chip (because it’s green), and then the strawberry (because it’s pink). Oh, and I’d like them scooped in that order. Don’t forget the extra sprinkles. Thanks!” He gave me the strangest look, while all of his other normal customers ordered their morning coffee. Why the specific colors, you ask? Well, for photos of course! It had to coordinate with the outfit, #lifeofablogger. We think about these things.
This month we celebrate three glorious years since the launch of our style site, Sleepless in Sequins. It is a love and passion project, combining our skills of fashion and photography. Looking back on the past three years, reminds me of where we started, as well as how far we’ve come. You can measure success in numbers, clicks, or dollars, however to us, it’s about the journey. It’s our endless road that we’ve paved, and we walk this one together.
