THE PERFECT DATE NIGHT LBD

lbd.jpg

One thing you can never go wrong with is a great little black dress. My closet is full of them! It’s the easiest thing to throw on for a last minute event or date night. I found this Cinq a Sept one on serious sale (63% off!) So my advice is just get it. You will thank me later! I’ve worn this one 3 times already and I love it!!

What’s your idea of the perfect date night?

THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT NATURE...

That does it for me. The minute I step onto grass, surrounded by trees with preferably a lake nearby, I am instantly recharged. The smells in the air, the sun on my face (covered in sunscreen of course!) The sound of birds chirping (doves cooing) and the wind rustling through the leaves. Theres nothing like it for me. When I was a kid, I spent my summers in the country at a sleep away summer camp. Those were the best memories of my childhood. It was there that I discovered my love for acting by being in the plays and it was there where I discovered how important being outside in nature was for me. We played sports all summer long and spent the entire summer outdoors in nature. From volleyball to tennis to basketball, baseball and soccer. We did every water activity you can possibly do on a lake from waterskiing to sailing, wind surfing and canoeing. These were the happiest years of my childhood. They were when I was most at peace. Maybe that's why when I step out into a location like this one here, I am filled with so much gratitude, peace and just happy feelings.  What type of locations make you feel happy? Happy Friday loves!

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. I

DAYTIME EMMY LOOK!

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!)

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!!

Much Love,

TAKE YOUR OUTFIT FROM DAY TO NIGHT IN 2 SIMPLE STEPS!

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!
