Off The Shoulder

Happy September everybody! I am going to keep this short and sweet since today is my official first day at my new job. I wore this outfit the other day when it was brutally hot out, and somehow stayed cool! These booties and cut out tee are my favorite transitional pieces, and I can't wait to see how many outfits I can make with them. 

I love a good platform bootie for Fall. These are super comfortable, and they actually come in tan too. I'm not usually a "heel" person, but platforms are my secret go-to shoe because they are easy to walk in, and super chic.

Hope you guys have a great day, and I hope your September is awesome!

The Perfect Picnic With Izze!

Now that Summer is coming to an end I am enjoying the last few weeks we do have by spending most of my time outside.  Although it's been really hot in New Jersey, around dinner time the weather cools off enough just to be able to enjoy sitting outside. I love having picnics in the park and this Summer we really tried to do just that, whenever we found the free moment. I can't believe Summer is almost over, and I feel like it just started!

 When planning a picnic, I always make sure to include the essentials. Since we still want to make sure we stay hydrated and healthy, we always keep water with us.  Some other essentials include cheese, some delicious salami, and of course fresh fruit.

IZZE Sparkling water has become my new go-to drink this summer. It's delicious with true to fruit flavors including raspberry watermelon, mandarin lime and blackberry pear. It's triple filtered mountain spring water and the fruit flavors are organic, which makes me feel great about what I am putting into my body.

Although the Summer is coming to its conclusion, we can still enjoy the remaining days by stocking up on good food and drinks, and of course, great company!

Have you guys done anything fun this Summer? If so I would love to hear about it!

Casual Thursdays

The Fall season is upon us, and in blogger land that means, new outfits, and new trends! I am really digging the casual, loose fitting tees and boyfriend shorts/jeans this Fall. Comfort is key, but being able to wear different piece in different ways is definitely important to me. I always think about how many different outfits I can make from tops, bottoms and shoes alike.

I got this awesome vegan leather tote to carry my computer & camera around on the go. It's super cute, and reversible too! The inside is a powder blue, and it also comes with a clip in clutch! It's perfect for the days when I can't fit what I need into my purse, and don't want to carry a thousand bags with me. I start my new job next week , and I couldn't be more excited. It's definitely a week of change and transition, but I am so ready for it to be here! Hope you guys are having a great week. Xoxo
