Ankle Boots I Wish I Could Wear This Fall

Fall Ankle BootsNow that I live in Florida all my ankle boots are nicely packed in their boxes in a storage container. I know I know I’m sad too. The weather in Florida just doesn’t get cold enough to wear my ankle boots. Last winter it got to about 40 degrees but honestly when I stepped outside in my ankle boots to go to my nephew’s girlfriend birthday party, I had to run inside to change because my feet were so hot. I’m one of those girls who can’t wear my ankle boots unless it’s really cold and Florida’s 40 degree weather isn’t Connecticut’s 40 degree weather. I miss wearing ankle boots y’all but I don’t miss the cold weather lol. Every time I visit my favorite online stores to see what’s in style I always have to stop myself and remember that I don’t live in Connecticut anymore and buying these boots are an absolute waste of money. One of my favorite stores to buy boots at is surprisingly Forever21. I have to say that they are not only affordable but they are really good quality. I got these boots (pictured here) two years ago and they are still in perfect condition and I wore them almost everyday and did all my errands in them when I lived in as a nanny in New York.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

The Nordstrom Sale has started and so far I am loving so many of the pieces they have on sale this year. I have to say the pieces this year are so much better than last year, especially the boots. This sale is literally the best sale of the year in my opinion of course. My life has been so hectic recently, so this sale is definitely making my day. I recently moved to Florida and for the past month, I have been so busy. I’ve been so busy that I’ve neglected my blog lol! That’s how crazy my life has been. Nordstrom SaleImage Source

One of my favorite is this cowl neck shift dress. I have been obsessing over them, since I find shift dresses so flattering on a curvy girl. I am also in love with these lace up flats. Don’t you just love the lace up flats trend this season. Now these ankle skinny jeans from Topshop are just perfect. I love that they come in the color stone! Since I had Early Access, I splurged and bought this gorgeous dress and since I live in Florida now, it’s so perfect for the weather down here. I also ordered these boots for the Fall. Don’t worry they’re open toed so I’m not going to be too hot. I’m also going to order some new workout clothes that I’ll link below. This Nordstrom Sale is filled with so many great pieces that you should definitely stock up on. Are you shopping during the Nordstrom Sale? If you are I would definitely love to see your pictures and sale guides. View Post

Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is almost here and the best part about it is I actually get to spend it with my dad. My dad has been living in sunny Florida for the past three years, while I remained in Connecticut with my mom and two other siblings. So this year, I want to make sure I get him a really amazing Father’s Day gift I know he’ll love. My dad really isn’t hard to shop for so I can basically get him anything and he’ll appreciate it. However, this year I really want to get him something special even though all he probably wants is a good Sunday dinner and for me to go to church with him. Any who, today I wanted to share with you all some of my top ideas for some pretty cool Father’s Day gift. Let’s just hope I don’t procrastinate and wait until the day before to get my dad something lol!

NYFW: A Dream Come True

Last month, I was given the amazing opportunity to attend the F/W 2016 NYFW showcase. I was so excited because I was finally getting the opportunity to live out a dream of mine. I remember the first time I heard about NYFW and from then on I’ve always been interested and I’ve always wanted to attend. Thankfully, Shopping Links was giving a few bloggers the opportunity to attend NYFW and I was picked to attend the Leanne Marshall NYFW F/W 2016 showcase. NYFW View Post
