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?

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

New Trend Alert: Satin

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?

Step 2: FOOD!

Trying a new place to eat is always fun and an easy way to enjoy the nice weather.

We deicided to try Sweetgrass Grill which had vegan options as well!

We started with Italian Bread and a White Bean Dip with olive oil and garlic.fullsizeoutput_1081

 For an appetizer, we had the Housemade Hummus
Grilled flatbread, za’atar, fried chickpeas. It was so good, probably my favorite out of everything we ordered!

Quick Outfit post:

When I’m lost and I have no idea what to wear I always go with all black and cute shoes. It’s super fast and simple and you can always add a bright lipstick, bag or even shoe to add something to the outfit to make it pop!
