Cotton Dresses: My Go To

Hi loves!

If anyone read my last post on zaful, I also just updated it with my review of the items I received, so anyone who wants to order from there knows my thoughts! Onto the next post..

Ugh life is hectic! This month besides work, apt hunting, and the blog- I had my cousins bridal shower and her bachelorette party, a wedding, and Halloween. I feel like I need a 3 month vaca somewhere- don’t worry its coming.

So I figured I would write a post on the outfit I wore to my cousins bridal shower, Her shower was up north in this cozy cute looking cabin place and the weather has been bi-polar so I truly had no clue what to wear. I chose an off the shoulder long sleeve dress, with a slight open stomach (in case I couldn’t decide if I was hot or cold LOL). Blush is literally one of my favorite colors and I feel like it’s a very positive happy color so I went with that to fit the theme as well. The fabric is was super amazing and so comfortable. It was heavy material which is good to keep me semi warm in freezing cold restaurants, and the fabric was cotton, ALL 100% cotton and I loved it. It is probably the most comfortable and what I always aim for. I have sensitive skin so any wool, or knitting sometimes makes me itchy. Cotton is very durable, resistant to tearing and high temperatures. It is my go to always: A 100% natural material, cotton is the most common fabric used in clothing ß and I am totally loving all clothes made of cotton. If I could honestly wear a cotton tshirt and leggings or jeans every day to work I totally world. Cotton is by far one of the best products.IMG-6547Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with c1 preset

Speaking of this busy week, I have a wedding on Sunday and that dress will also be made of all cotton, I feel like it is also stretchy- so I can eat like a pig all night, or drink for however long and not look bloated because of the give that cotton has. I can’t wait to show you guys my dress on Sunday but its such a hectic week so I just wanted to come on here and fill you guys in quickly. After all these weddings and shindigs I am TOTALLY binge watching Halloween shows/movies, (HOCUS POCUS) going pumpkin picking, hayrides, and baking Halloween goodies. Sometimes when you are overwhelmed/overworking the holidays come up so quick and you forget to enjoy the preparation and all the fun before hand, does that happen to you guys? I hate it. I also can’t believe it is already Halloween- I am not even sure what I am doing. So this is a reminder to pause and live in the now: HALLOWEEN! What is everyone being?

Anyway thanks for chatting! If you are a cotton lover like me you can buy all the cotton dress fabrics online <– click.

Sweaters from Zaful !

OMG HELLO BABIES! So it has been forever since I wrote a post and with fall coming I figured I would write about one of the best online shopping sites out there, ZAFUL and especially this awesome gray V-neck sweater and all of the others I linked under it! I am recently collaborating with zaful and I honestly could not be happier! I have been shopping their for YEARS because of there awesome quality and inexpensive items.

Since fall is here ( I think, not really sure  with the weather) I figured letting you guys know about Zaful and there awesome sweaters was now perfect timing! Below I am attaching pictures of my 3 MUST HAVE sweaters for this fall/winter:

1- Open back sweaters: I am such a sucker for an open back, I feel like some think sweaters are bulky and can’t be sexy, but with this open back its comfort, warmth and sexy all in one. It makes for awesome unique style as well. I will be ordering so many of these for fall- you can never go wrong!

Cut Out Lace Up Sweater - Wine Red

2- My next go to are Cardigans with pockets AND a plus this sweaters back has a criss cross lace up as well! It is so perfect, you can wear a tank top or shorts sleeves underneath just in case you get hot and have this to wear over it to keep you cozy if you get cold (like I do 24/7 in restaurants) I wear some form of a cardigan almost everyday to work! It can be dressed up or down, and for their price- you CANNOT go wrong!

Back Lace Up Hooded Cardigan With Pockets - Gray

3- My last must have is this new trending RIPPED looking sweater, its fancy and casual and really reminds me of YEEZY’s line so I personally really love it. I saw Kylie wearing it once and it really can just go with anything, denim pants, skirts, or even leather leggings. I am SO obsessed!

GO CHECK OUT THEIR SWEATERS AND YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! HAPPY SHOPPING!

UPDATE: So I received my items from Zaful and I just wanted to write a review for you guys, so you knew how it all was in case you wanted to order from here. I have gotten a lot of questions on this company, so I felt a review would be super helpful!!

So I received 3 types of items:

Loose sweater: Ok I got this style in the ripped one pictured above, it is also in my recent insta pic.  I am OBSESSED with this one! It reminds me of the YEEZY line but just for a really good price! It is so comfortable and a bit baggy (how I like it) but the mid section comes in and actually makes your waist look smaller, which is also awesome! The rips at the bottom of the sleeves and the mid section totally make this look so chic. I paired mine with a pair of leggings but when I wear it again I would totally wear it with a skirt and booties or a pair of jeans- more of a night out look next time!

 

Long sleeve top: I got one with an open back and a bow! Super cute and looks so cute with a pair of jeans and booties! I’ll post that pic on my insta soon! You can really never go wrong with long sleeve tops considering they can be worn for work, night out, dinner, or really just hanging out!

Drop Shoulder sweater: Ok I can live in these types of sweaters, they are super soft and comfortable. The insides feel like fleece and its perfect for these chillier nights where you want to just cozy up! I would definitely go a size up so you get that oversized baggy look. Love it!

Hope you guys get shopping and enjoy! Zaful is one of my favorite online stores, so enjoy it!

Sun(ny) Days

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

So today was by far the nicest day of 2017! It was 70 degrees here in NJ, and for all Catholics, Palm Sunday.  My family goes to church every Sunday, so on religious holidays it is even more important to be there. My mom also makes the most amazing Italian meals, so its definitely a food coma kind of night right now. Family traditions are my favorite.

Since it has been SO cold out, I have not been able to wear all the cute spring attired I’ve bought, my wardrobe has consisted of sweaters, leggings, and a lot of layers. Seriously I feel like the last three weeks here has been rain, wind, and freezing cold. It has not felt like spring at all, so mother nature balanced out and gave us semi- summer weather today and supposedly it is supposed to be just as nice this upcoming week. I CANNOT WAIT.

Today I chose to go with a suede dress, and my FAVORITE WEDGES EVER! These wedges are CRAZY popular right now! I want my next pair to be the light pink Chloe ones. For now, these amazing dupes are Steve Madden JAYLEN Wedge! The Chloe wedges run a little over $600, so for people who do not want to invest that in a wedge or may not have that money right now- These Steve Madden wedges are (pretty close to) identical, and under $100! I got mine for 25% OFF, if you go now they are still on sale for under $60! YES UNDER $60! Another great dupe is the Marc Fisher ‘Adalyn’ Espadrille Wedge. These wedges are by far the most comfortable ones I have and I will most likely be wearing them everyday of summer 😉 They match everything and are just so so cute, soft, and overall just extremely worth it in every color!

This dress is from BooHoo (similar)! One of the best sites ever, they are currently having a 20% OFF of EVERYTHING Sale! I got this dress after I saw how cute Kylie Jenner looked in hers (except she prob did not get it from boohoo) I bought this soo long ago and wanted to style it with over the knee boots but I bought too many things in between, that I actually forgot about this adorable get up! Since today was a holiday, awesome weather, and matched my perfect wedges I decided to go for it and have my suede cutie dress make its debut! It is so comfortable, normally after events I cannot wait to get into sweats or pajamas and just lay down- Its now 9:30pm and I am still wearing it- I feel like I am wearing a nightgown to be honest lol

Go get shopping ladies!!
