Today's Look: Strawberry Fields

othing screams 'carefree summer day' like a cream-colored maxi dress complimented by playful accessories and natural beach waves. My favorite part about this look has to be the shoes and accessories from one of my must-shop boutiques in North Carolina, Vestique which is seriously one of the cutest stores ever! They have all the items you need to cook up a fun/flirty look with just a touch of southern charm.

I loved gallivanting the city in these strappy sandals. My hot pink coral necklace was a pretty big hit too- everyone wanted to know where it came from! To keep cool, these cut-out sleeves and open draped back are perfect. Next stop, delicious treats from Smorgasburg!

$500 Urban Decay Makeup Giveaway


ey ladies (and gents)! I'm excited to announce that I've teamed up with clothing brand, Sugar For Spike to tell you all about their launch and awesome contest to win a ton of FREE makeup by Urban Decay. Amazing new clothes and beauty products?? Now, you're talking my language!

Sugar For Spike is pleased to announce the release of its debut collection editorial lookbook (see it below). The inspiration behind the lookbook comes from two friends, looking for an escape from the perfectionism and commercialism of their city, where they stumble into a “secret” underground hangout to have a little carefree fun. 

Dancing and twirling throughout the night, and forgetting whom they are and what the world deems as appropriate behaviour, they end up discovering that the liberation from the night out will be one of the memories they will treasure about their youth. 

The collection is slated to release at select retailers and online at sugarforspike.com on 7th August 2014. The line is also available for pre-order now, with free international shipping. Closing date for pre-orders is 10th July 2014. Get connected to receive $20 off your first purchase. Voucher code: THANKYOU20

Check out a sneak peek of Sugar For Spike's new lookbook:

Trending Now

tyle stalking straight from the streets of New York City, bringing you the top 3 must have trending items of the moment. Here are the pieces that made my 'it list'. Which will make it into your closet this summer?

1. You may recognize this particular necklace from the 2013 Bambi Awards when Miley Cyrus paired it with a Jean Paul Gaultier dress.  One of my personal faves, I love the open collar choker that seems to be slowly, but surely growing in popularity. When you want to accentuate those collar bones but don't want to appear too bear, add one of these cool necklaces for a splash of variety. They come in all different shapes and sizes if you want something a little less or more blingy. It's fun, unexpected and looks great with a blazer.


2. Behold the circa 1997 inspired chunky sandal. Yes, the 90s are back...with a vengeance. Did I mention it comes in metallic? This sporty look is best paired with a pair of shorts, summer dress or if you're feeling totally retro a pair of overalls. I said it.

3. Orange is the new black...and I'm not talking about the show. This citrus fruit color demands to be seen. It's daring, spontaneous and has everyone wanting more. It is certainly the color of the moment.
DKNY

Weekend at Aria, Las Vegas

vegas.com


magine this, you start off your day by relaxing in an 80,000 sq. foot spa, later you find yourself enjoying a show from a group of talented acrobats courtesy Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil. (You might even hit up the casino...if you're feeling lucky.) The real fun starts that evening when you join the city's infamous nightlife, making an appearance at Haze Nightclub or perhaps, The Deuce Lounge. Well, fortunately for you, the wishing can be over because the gorgeous Aria Hotel has it all for a huge deal! And to put your mind at (even more) ease Vegas.com asked me to style a few looks for you to pack in your suitcase to transition yourself from sight-seer to nightclub diva. You can snag a hotel room for as little as $119 and as far as your wardrobe goes, consider me your personal shopper! 

LOOK I: DINING 
Vegas.com
While you regroup for a meal at Lemongrass to make your evening plans, relax in a white cropped pant and a lightweight cardigan. When you're done being fancy, you can rock this necklace with a plain white tee.


LOOK II: AN EVENING OUT
The evening has finally arrived and you're channeling your inner Gwen Stefani by letting your wild side show, mixing metallics with stripes and florals. Because...why not?

                                 GET THE LOOK


LOOK III: COCKTAILS
Vegas.com
It's hot out and so are you! Sleep in and enjoy endless Cosmos the next afternoon at Liquid Pool Lounge. A blush tone is flattering on every skin tone. Add a patterned bikini bottom, floppy sun hat and cool pair of shades and you're good to go!

Happy vacationing
