I’m on a boat OOTD ( couple edition)

Recently, I went on a yacht around NYC for a friend’s birthday! It was really great! It was a beautiful sunny day and we got to see the Statue of Liberty 🗽  and of course, take as many selfies as we wanted!

I noticed when I was getting ready I really had no idea what I would wear to something like this in the middle of summer.

I wanted to wear something light that also covered me from the sun.

I went with theses pants from Forever 21. From a distance, they look like a maxi skirt but really they were loose fitting pants with a slit up the side and a pair of shorts underneath for extra coverage.

For the top, I just went simple with a blank tank top from Primark (which you can never go wrong with).

Finally, I paired this outfit with some nude sandals from Kohl’s and a hat from H&M and of course some sunglasses 🕶!

The hat didn’t last very long because it was so windy I was scared that it would fly away!

Chris was also having trouble trying to figure out what to wear on a yacht. He wore a bright white men’s dress shirt by Michael Kors with plaid shorts from American Eagle. And since we were going on a yacht, he said, “I can’t NOT wear these shoes..” His slip-on leather Steve Madden dress sneakers.

But, he’s not that fancy, those are fake Ray Bans he got on the beach in Mexico for $10…

What would you wear to a boat party?

I’m ENGAGED!

On November 9th everything changed.

So here’s the story!

I was home waiting for Chris to come home after going to see his parents. Being the annoying girlfriend I am, I decided to hide and wait for Chris to walk in and pop out and scare him. Haha! If you know us you know that I always try and scare him and I have waaayyy to much fun with it.

After I scared him to death we talked about our day and I didn’t think any thing of it. I changed into my Christmas pajamas 😑 and at that moment Chris started telling me all this sweet stuff about us and got down on one knee! I thought he was joking and was yelling that he better be serious, lol. Then the big question happened he asked me to marry him! My heart was pounding I was in shock and excited all at the same time. I said yes and he put this beautiful ring on my finger ❤️.

I’ve never been more happy in my life. I’ve always known that Chris was the one and I’m so happy to call him my fiancé and soon to be husband!

I can’t wait to document the progress of wedding planning and share the experience with everyone

Lazy Sunday 

Lately I haven’t been feeling inspired, maybe it’s this annoying weather I don’t know. But last week Chris and I did a mini shoot with our growing record collection! 

Hope this inspires you to jam out in a robe and collect some new music. Xoxo

fullsizeoutput_139afullsizeoutput_139cfullsizeoutput_139efullsizeoutput_139ffullsizeoutput_13a5fullsizeoutput_13a2fullsizeoutput_13ab

Recently I’ve noticed there has been a huge trend for satin and silk looks!
Every store seems to be filled with tops, dresses and even bottoms. I love following trends but I don’t like breaking the bank as you all know. So, I checked out Forever 21 to see if they were keeping up with the trend.

I found so many different kinds of tops it was hard to even pick, but this one seemed so cute I loved the tie detailing.

Forever 21 Open Shoulder Top

The only thing I don’t like about this top is that it wrinkles so easily even after I ironed it on low. Well, my boyfriend ironed it because your girl hates it haha.

Other Outfit Details: 

Pants: Calvin Klein

Shoes: Genuine Suede Lace up Sandals 

How do you feel about this trend? are you in or out?
