In October We Wear Pink


Breast Cancer Awareness #ThinkPink

I tend to think and talk a lot about how tomorrow is never promised. And it's not to be cliche' but, because its very true. We are never guaranteed tomorrow so I believe in living a meaningful and purpose driven life. God has chosen to keep me here on this earth another day and to me that means I'm meant to continue to fulfill a bigger purpose or a bigger dream. I have chosen to go confidently in the direction of my dreams, and to live the life I have always imagined. Trust me though. It is not always a cake walk living like there's no tomorrow. I too am human and have days where I sweat the small stuff but I try harder the next day to learn and grow. October is breast cancer awareness month, so I'm thinking pink and am extra thankful to be alive and healthy. In college, Breast Cancer Awareness and research was my sorority's philanthropy so this is something that I have always been involved with and is close to the heart. Whether it's donating time or money this month for the cure, I hope you find out how you can be involved. Here's a helpful hint for you shopper's out there... Every Thursday Ann Taylor (click here for details and to find a store near you), from 5PM to close, and all day online, is donating 10% of sales to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. #ThisIsAnn with your fabulous finds on Social Media. Here's to shopping for a cure!

Your Top 3 Fall Lip Colors on Rotate

I Colori Di Caduta #TheColorsOfFall

There's something about an Italian Lip color during Fall that is unlike anything else. Giorgio Armani has certainly encompassed what women desire out of a long lasting lip shade -- and I can't get enough of their fall shades. The color glides on smooth almost like a velvet gloss and dries with a soft, nourishing matte finish. SO technically speaking its a matte lacquer! I can wear this product throughout the day and even after I eat, it does not wear off. Surprisingly it is easily removed with regular make-up remover as well, making this non-drying, long lasting lip product a win win. Shade 502 is a cross over of a deep fuchsia berry and plum. Shade 414 is your classic, bold red. Shade 406 is like a crimson red wine. All perfect for fall and I will be rotating these lovely's all season. Enjoy!

Florals for Fall

Falling Into Autumn in Floral #FallinFlorida

It's that beautiful time of the year again when the leaves start to change into bright amber, deep crimson red and gorgeous gold. The air is crisp and there is a faint scent of cinnamon and pumpkin near by. The menu's at our favorite dining places now read, pumpkin spice beer, cinnamon dolce latte's and I can feel the holidays approaching... ... ... WAIT for It...Then I snap back into reality remembering I live in Florida and I very well may still be sitting in the sand at the beach while sipping my Starbucks PSL while only daydreaming about a place far far away where the climates do actually change with the time of year. Hey, a girl can dream, am I right?! This season, I will be showing you the many ways to get creative with your fall wardrobe when temps are still quite warm, and what better way to kick off the Fall season in Florida then with a fabulous fall floral print!

How To Dress For Fall In Florida

Contrary To Popular Belief...It is Possible #FallInFlorida

How so, you may wonder? When temps are still climbing into the 80s & 90s and Palm Trees are as vividly green and crisp as ever, lets be real...dressing for fall is no cake walk in warmer climate states like Florida. Let me assure you though, it is do-able if you follow these tips.

1. Pick a fall color like this Olive green short sleeve T-shirt, or a deep burgundy cold shoulder, lightweight top. 2. Classic Denim (my fave's are AG and Paige). I wear mine year round. 3. Cute Ballet flats in a fall print (like trendy leopard) or classic fall color (like deep blue, black, camel, burgundy, forest green, burnt orange). Or sub Peep toe booties. Pair all together for a casual, yet stylish fall ensemble that wont make you faint from heat exhaustion. I wore this Nordstrom inspired ensemble to run errands this past weekend and definitely felt the spirit of fall without having to sweat it out in a heavy sweater and fall coat. Proof where there's a will, there's a way. Try it out and Let me know what you think! :)
