You dolls might have read my most recent post on what to wear a casual night out. The look consisted of a black sweater, some chic sunglasses (if it’s early evening), and your favorite pair of jeans. Easy right? I wore that outfit as a comfortable alternative to getting all dressed up out in Barcelona. Well, when it was time to head back to Dublin, jetlag still had ahold of me, but I wanted something a little more glam. Enter this elevated long sleeve tee, covered in sequins. The color is described as deep well, and it’s the prettiest shade of ink navy. It almost looks black if not in the light. This time when I was heading out – you guessed it…I reached for the same pair of jeans! But instead of a sweater, I threw on this top and the comfiest pair of heels I now own. With western details (another blog post coming on this soon), the heels are perfectly on-trend but classic enough to last from year to year. I love this look because I get to wear sequins without looking like it’s my 21st birthday, or I’m heading out to a night in Vegas. You know what I mean? The light jeans keep it casual and modern. But hey, what girl doesn’t like to the sparkly center of attention!

 

That night I had the most fantastic time going to dinner with old friends in Ireland and sipping cocktails with my brother. I even hit my late-night Indian spot, a restaurant I’ve frequented since I was 15. Before we hit the town, we also managed to take some photos together…something that my mom was surprised and delighted by. And I have to say…my brother has the blogger poses down pact. Perhaps I should watch my back! Spending time with family is my favorite part of traveling, and this trip was no exception. I hope you dolls stay tuned because I have a couple more Fall looks that I wore while on my trip. Coming to the blog soon!

A Casual Night Out

As a fashion blogger, I naturally LOVE to get all dolled up for a night on the town. Dresses, big hair, a fancy bag, and the higher the heels the closer to God. However, some nights you’re not in the mood for all that.

 

You just want a put together look that’s casual and cool. Well on our recent European adventure, I found myself in exactly that position. Jetlag had caught up with me and I wanted an easy look for a night out. So what did I choose? Items that you probably have in your closet already!

 

For my look, I opted for a pair of light/distressed jeans. My friends Rachel and Alexa look absolutely amazing in Levi’s ReDone, but honestly…my butt is too big for that. I couldn’t squeeze one thigh in a pair to save my life. Even though I’ve always had envy that I couldn’t fit into the ultimate cool girl pair of jeans, I found some that work for me! Where did I get mine? Forever 21! With a wide range of sizes, a tiny bit of stretch, and holes in just the right places, I’ve been wearing this pair almost every day. But really…just ask my co-workers!

 

I also opted for a Forever 21 sweater and sunglasses that rival the trendy designer pairs we all covet! I felt on-trend, classic and cute for my night out. But most of all, I felt comfortable! Here’s to those nights out and to finding the perfect pair of jeans!

If you guys follow along with me on Instagram (which I hope you do!) then you might have seen that I celebrated my 29th birthday recently! My idea of celebrating was taking my annual trip to the Hamptons to spend time with my best friends. This year was a little different not living in New York, so we spent a couple days in the city catching up with old co-workers, friends, and visiting some of our favorite New York restaurants.  I have to be honest – it was the first time I passed our old home since we moved and it made me a little emotional.  But, I’m happy to say that I feel lucky to still have a connection to the city and the ability to visit friends often.

 

One of the big differences from New York to Atlanta – summer in the city! While the heat down South is brutal, you often don’t feel it going from an air conditioned building straight to a car.  That’s not the case in New York where you wander the streets and can really feel the heat (don’t even get me started on the subway).

 

On a morning where we strolled through the West Village and then headed to Soho House, I felt a short, white sundress was perfect for the occasion and the best way to beat the heat! I love the colorful and cute embroidered design, but what I really loved was the price! Can you believe this dress is less than $25? I finished my look with my go-to Summer hat and summery espadrilles that also happen to be on sale.  Make sure to check the links below for details!
