Relaxing for the 4th

Hi babes!

Ah so I know it has been a while again, I do have a full time job so sometimes it is hard to get on here and give my all. I never want to write a blog post and feel like I’m half ass-ing it, I always want to feel like I am writing in my fashion diary to all my favs and give my full potential. ANYWAYS IM HERE! and Happy belated 4th of July! How was everyones holiday? I usually love to go out to bars or down the shore on holiday weekends and this weekend I really realized I am getting old. I did not care to go out out at all. I totally enjoyed laying by my pool, fam bbqs, the BEACH and just hanging with friends. We legit did not go to one bar and I actually enjoyed it. Good to know I am over the scene of being wasted in a 5 hour line just to get into the bar for 2 hours lol..anyone else?

With that being said I did not wear many outfits this weekend because a lot of it consisted of being in a bathing suit, short sweats, or the same denim shorts (levis duh). I also have been looking for a photographer and trying to pick a day a week after work in NY to meet with them to get content for the week (that will be a future blog post and maybe you guys can help me out).

So for holidays I ALWAYS DRESS the colors- maybe because my mama used to dress up me and my sisters for every holiday matching the colors and each other! So needless to say my outfits were red white and/or blue. I will link everything below!

This outfit was for a night out with my cousins who came to stay with us and just come hang in the pool and then get dinner in Freehold Boro, if you have not been you should go, its the cutest little town. So this shirt ( I feel like I say this about a lot) is ONE of my all time favorites and I am kinda annoyed I did not get more pics in it. It is so flattering and was so extremely festive, from Make me Chic! My shorts are make me chic, and more like boyfriend shorts, and the mules are ZARA. This shirt made me feel amazing all night, and thats a great way to feel when you are not wearing any makeup! Am I right ladies?!

This next outfit was so comfy, my dad yelled at me about it but I told him its in style.. its a crop top! and a bow one at that! The shorts are my go to Levis (they’re having a 20% OFF SALE! + EXTRA 50% on some!), and my weirdly comfy platforms are Zara! The other shoes that are slides in some of these pics are Ego Official! My REALLY perfect necklaces are HELLO Kestan! USE MY CODE: LAURENBELUXE for 10% off!

We spent 4th of July at my cousins with the pool, drinks, food and fireworks- perfect to me! But my sisters and I take LOADS of pics so here are a bunch, as you can tell Vince just goes with it because thats how amazing of a BF he is 😉

Making Me Chic

Hi beauties! First things first- THANK YOU for all your Congrats on me getting into the LIKEtoKNOW.it program! Seriously this is A DREAM- I am completing the videos and on boarding process and will be linking all my items as soon as TOMORROW. I am seriously so honored and thrilled about this I just feel so lucky. Thank you RewardStyle!

So this weeks  blog post- My title is fully committed to how Make Me Chic, has made me so chic! hehe, seriously though this is my new favorite online store, everything is so cheap but SO cute, comfortable and unique! I have ordered so much from here lately, and as promised I am blogging about my top 3 blouses from there! I am going to try to link the exact tops- they sell out SO quick though so if not I will put something similar!

This weekend me, my sister, and my boyfriend went to Princeton NJ; it is a beautiful college/upscale city and with the 90 degree weather we felt like it is a PERFECT place to go. With still testing out photographers and my own pro camera (that went dead mid drive to Princeton) I have realized my sister and my boyfriend and my sister are my 2 best photogs at the moment so why not take advantage and take some pics at the beautiful University (we had to drop off my Boyfriend to study anyway) so me and my sister had ourselves a blast from playing in flower gardens, finding a food truck festival, and snapping photos in a random beautiful mansions backyard (I think it was a frat house- they had a volleyball court, fire pit, and hammock- so I mean obviously we hung out there for over an hour). So naturally we took a million photos in my awesome new MakeMeChic shirts below! Enjoy love bugs!

This top is a deep green which I LOVE and feel like it would honestly look good on anyone. The model on the website wore this shirt with her arm INSIDE the top but it was clearly just for the photo because when I tried it that way – you physically can’t move that arm, its like it is in a cast LOL- but still cute in the pic, but I chose to wear it outside the shirt because I love the one shoulder look regardless. The extra fabric- which is not shown in the pic online can either be knotted and rolled under the shirt or it can be tied into a bow- that is what I did. I also chose to style it with the most comfortable high waisted jeans from H&M and platform sandals (my fav), and my fav Ray Ban sunnies:

Here is the link to this EXACT shirt: Green Top

This next top is by far my favorite shirt that I have ever gotten from MakeMeChic thus far. I took way too many photos in it, but I will only post a few 😉 We found a flower garden at Princeton and literally could not move from it, because it just made us so happy, but after we chose to walk away we walked straight into a mansions yard- I can only assume it was a Frat house but there was literally NO ONE there (maybe they were all at the truck festival) and this yard had a volleyball court, a hammock and a fire pit. Needless to say we had our fun not only with photos but just relaxing on the hammock enjoying the weather and just admiring these colleges kids houses! (take me back to PSU) At first I styled it with the same sandals as the first, but then realized I really did not like it together and switched to this amazing mules (another fav)

The exact link to this shirt is linked HERE!

This is unedited- I like to give some raw photos to you guys too 🙂

 

This last shirt is another one shoulder shirt and Make Me Chic is so famous for that- and making you look great in it. I wore this for my Celebratory dinner date my boyfriend planned for me getting into LIKEtoKNOW.it, He is the sweetest (sometimes). I styled it with (believe it or not) a pair of leggings, since I knew I would be consuming LOTS of food and these awesome denim heels from EGO official- this is the first time I wore them and I LOVE them, they are a little big but it is do able they’re too cute to deal with the hassle of return and shipping back and waiting another 2 weeks to wear them. I also saw them on Lauren Bushnell and had to have them (love her style)
