When I was in high school, I fell in love with this pair of multi colored striped pants. It's hard to describe them but I remember when I saw them I absolutely fell in love with them. My mom was working 3 jobs to support us and I knew she didn't have the money to buy them for me but somehow, seeing how much I loved them, she found a way to surprise me with them. I remember being so excited to wear them. I showed up at my friends house and the first thing she did, in front of about 4 other girls was make fun of them. I remember something along the lines of being called Ronald Mcdonald and some other things she thought was funny. IRead More
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend! I found this dress on Revolve and lived in it all weekend! It's the perfect dress to throw on over a bathing suit and wear to a BBQ, pool party, the beach or just to run errands in! This is definitely a summer staple!
SHOP THE POST!
For the Emmy's this year, I asked you all on Instagram to vote on the direction I should head in. I wear black a lot on the carpet as I find it to be classic and elegant. This year however, I wanted to go with color and so many of you voted for it. I ended up choosing this gorgeous mermaid gown by Zac Posen. I reconnected with my stylist Jessica Paster for this and I couldn't have been more thrilled with the result! We paired this gown with a gold clutch and shoes by Jimmy Choo and stunning jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz. I seriously felt like a princess!!
For hair I did something I have never done before... extensions!!! It was so much fun to be able to change up my look like this. Having extra hair to play with opens up a whole new world!! My hairstylist Matthew Holman added these extensions to give me a long sleek look but still keeping it pretty simple since the dress had more going on.
For makeup, Brittany Howard and I decided to go with with a more dramatic eye and this was definitely my favorite makeup we have ever done! (A whole breakdown will be coming to the blog in the next day or so!)
So what do you guys think of the final look? We had so much fun celebrating everyones hard work this year! Darin and I are so proud to be a part of this community of people that put their hearts and souls into the work every single day. We love you guys for the constant support and coming on these journeys with us no matter what we do, so thank you!!
Ever have those days where you are running around and have so much to do? Then you need to make it to a dinner and have very little time to get ready or maybe don't even have time to go home and change? I am someone who cannot run around in heels all day. My mom was the type of woman who could go grocery shopping with 2 kids in 5 inch heels. I. Cannot. If you are like me, this is a simple way to do it. Below is my day outfit turned to night. All I do is change my shoes and bag and I'm ready to go!
Hi loves! As you may know, my husband Darin is from Hawaii (sucks right?) this means that usually we head there for Christmas break to see his family and enjoy a little bit of paradise. Being that I am from Montreal and I truly hate the cold, this is always an exciting trip. This year however, his family wanted some snow (whyyyyy) just kidding it will be fun to go back to my roots. I grew up skiing and in the snow and I know it'll be very nostalgic and cozy!Read More
