Hello everyone,

Well, as you have seen on my Instagram, I just got back from Aruba and I had the most amazing and relaxing time. Every year I take two or three vacations with my family and we have been there several times because the Island has the best food, nicest people and pretty much guaranteed great weather. Two years ago we stayed at the brand new Ritz Carlton, which we loved but it is very quiet so this year we decided to go back to the Marriott Stellaris where there is much more activity. The grounds are beautiful and the sun was sizzling, so much so that we had to spend a little less time than usual on the beach. You are right at the equator so you can just imagine how great the weather really is. I cannot say enough about the food and we have several restaurants we frequent, never being disappointed.

We kept it a little more low key than usual this year not fussing as much for dinner, more sandals less on the heels, hair and makeup, which was kind of nice but doesn't always make for the best pics so I will restyle and repost some of my outfits when weather permits. In the meantime I'm back in the Northeast and back on the blog.

I wish I had this maxi dress while in Aruba…it just screams for clear blue water and pink sand. It has that princess feel to it with the flowy bottom. I paired it with pink pumps, and a light blue Edie Parker clutch for a little more color. I hope you like it as much as I do! You can get this look below.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Love Lauren


Mariposa Midi

Today’s look reminds me of the salsa dancer emoji (in a good way). It is ruched to perfection and the red floral print is TOO good for spring!! This dress can be easily taken day to night with a change of shoes.

If you have been following along on Instagram then you have seen my newest choker obsession by Chan Luu. I love it so much!! It is simple, yet so sophisticated, and I love that it can still look great layered with other pieces.

Today’s items are a little pricey…so I also picked out some great alternatives. You can shop this look below. Thank you for stopping by!!

Princess Maxi

I wore this outfit to an event last week and unfortunately I didn’t take many pictures in it.  I am so in love with this dress so I HAD to make sure it went up on the blog. The cut is so feminine with the drop-waist ruffle and sheer fabric. It looks so beautiful when it flows in the wind. It feels like such a princess dress!! The crazy part is I wasn’t wild about it until I tried it on…and I immediately fell in love. Have you ever had the problem where you have an outfit and are running around like a madman last minute searching for shoes for it?? I feel like this would have been one of those outfits if I did not have these mesh Louboutin pumps. They could not have been more of a PERFECT match. For a bag I went with a faded rose-colored Chloé shoulder bag and tucked the straps in to use as a clutch. It looks so nice against the pale pink giving it a bolder color.
