This is Maria & I at our friend’s wedding in February. We had our make up done at the LM counter in Chicago…..I must admit, it looks amazing! Look at her eyes!

 

Not only will you get to see ME, (haha) there will be some fabulous treats for you as well.  LM will have one of their premier makeup artists there if you need a little make-over (who doesn’t want a makeover, i ask?), AND there is a little giftie for those of you who come and mention you follow my blog!  Oh – and if you spend over $125, there’s another gift.   You can’t NOT come.

Here are some of my favorite Anniversary sale deals from Laura Mercier:

The ultimate smoky eye kit.  Seriously.  Come see me on Friday and learn the 'how-to' with these essentials.  Your eyes will look just as good as Maria's!

Editing the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

This time of year, a lot of big shoppers (like myself) get a little wound up about the Nordstrom anniversary sale.  As a year-round shopper (not just a sale shopper) I try not to go over the edge, but who can resist a deal on pre-season goods???  It’s SO hard.  And so many funny hashtags apply.  #firstworldproblems #shopaholic #getaholdofyourself #itsjustclothes #butnewclothesmakemesohappy #seedressingroomphotobelow

So, I thoroughly shopped the whole sale. and snapped pics of my favorites.  And took a few dressing room shots too.  I felt like a creep taking pics all over the store, but……it’s all in the name of a good deal, right?  You can shop through my favs at the end of this post.  Enjoy!

Loved these BlankNYC relaxed boyfriend jeans from the start. Great fit, great price.

Completely obsessed with and can’t wait to wear this leather Topshop vest, paired with a darling Joie silk blouse in this peachy color. And of course with the aforementioned BlankNYC jeans.

This is a Theory blazer. Meant to be worn with suit pants, i would just buy the blazer and wear it all Fall. Not to mention it’s the pantone color of 2015.

FullSizeRender[48]

Here’s how I’d wear the Theory blazer. I’m all about taking something structured (the blazer) and mixing with casual and un-structured (ripped jeans and a tee).

Happy Anniversary Sale!

Mint Julep Love

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July – it feels like forever ago! It makes me sad – the 4th of July always makes me feel like the summer is half way over and the kids will go back to school soon. NOOOO!!!!

We have an annual parade in our neighborhood and it is a family favorite…a fun-filled day with friends and fun was the best!

FullSizeRender-7

The adults get in on the fun too!  If you didn’t see this picture on Instagram, here it is again…

This is one of our favorite new tops from The Mint Julep Boutique! It was the perfect addition for my 4th of July outfit – comfy and cute all at the same time.

Check out some of our other favorites:

43300.2.blu 41817.1.pea 42598.1.wht 43041.1.mnt 43139.1.pnk 42568.1.blk

They are a one-stop shopping for all of your fashion needs! We are definitely fans and will be back for more.  There are so many online boutiques out there and we wanted to give you the scoop on one of our favorites.

Stay tuned … a little birdie told me you might see Mollie soon with one of her favorite items!

A Nautical Twist

This mini photo shoot turned into a doggie love fest.  Ruby had to be part of the pictures!  Clearly, she loved my outfit.  And I thought it was 4th of July appropriate without being too over the top red, white and blue – a nautical twist on the classic.

This look is all about color and fun.  The sheer maxi, just like the one from my previous post in black, is the most fun color of neon coral.  I paired it with a Tees by Tina tank in white (you can get those from us right here at Peach) and a wide striped crop top.   The super fun earrings are Stella & Dot, and I piled on a couple of cheap-o bracelets with my favorite Hipanema bracelet (can’t stop wearing it).  Oh!  I can’t forget my Rebecca Minkoff clutch – it’s an oldie but goodie – RM never goes out of style.  Shop similar cross body styles here.

Here are a few ideas of ways to recreate this look on your own:

A Little Bare

To show or not to show?

How old is too old?

The older we get, the more questions arise with fashion. Mollie and I have always talked about staying classy … but we love staying on good trends.

Cut out dresses have come back on the scene and we had to give it a try! In a classy way of course.

This dress was the perfect mix of fun and class – and the print was a must for summer.  We have LOVED all of the palm print (you can tell from our Instagram) – and this gave us that same smile!

Plus, I have been working my butt off lately at the gym and it felt good to show a little of that hard work!

And how cute is the back … it looks like a completely different dress?

Sheer Summer Maxi Skirt

I am loving this sheer maxi skirt I found last week at H&M.  It pairs perfectly with my favorite gladiator sandals, and being that it’s sheer, it’s cool and comfortable for summer days and nights.  Oh, and did I mention that it was $12.99?

 I broke out this oldie but goodie necklace that I purchased from Shopbop years ago.  So versatile and great with an all black look.

I cannot stop wearing this Kendra Scott Elisa necklace that was given to me for my birthday a couple of weeks ago by none other than Erin!  She has good taste!  Thank you E – this is my ‘go-to’ summer necklace and I haven’t taken it off!

Beach Bound!

In just a few days I am heading to Rosemary Beach, FL with my family and we are beyond excited!

beach-bound-1343618769

With a beach house waiting for our arrival, I am packing up the family and getting ready to lounge for a week (is that possible as a Mom?)

We have a LONG drive ahead of us and having two little ones, I am overly-preparing for a busy car ride.

Any home run ideas you want to share with me? So far I have movies (I made a no TV rule starting tomorrow so they can load up on movies in the car!), coloring books, Grade Level workbooks, stamps and sticker books.

Don’t forget, it’s Father’s Day this weekend – so I threw in a cool shirt for my sweet hubby for a little surprise!

As for some of my new favorite items (most on sale!)  I have picked up for the family, here is a sneak peek:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9

Could you just not die over the pineapple purse for my girls??

And don’t forget to follow me here on Instagram to follow along on our trip!

Summer Brights

There are so many things to love about summer … and one of them is all of the bright colors!

And even better is wearing them all together for a ‘bright’ statement.

If you haven’t heard – Kohl’s did an ah-mazing collaboration with Milly for DesignNation – making some of our favorite collections available accessible and affordable for all!  We picked up a few favorites from Milly and they have definitely been summer staples (all on SALE right now for under $20)!

Pairing this cute T-shirt with a dressier skirt, some fun heels, top it off with a FUN bag … this makes for the perfect summer ensemble. Day or Night.

Camo Comfy

Anyone who knows me – knows leopard and camo are always in my closet. Too much is never enough (done tastefully, of course).

These camo pants (check out these that under $40!!) are one of my favorites and I have many variations – dark, light … you just never know what shade depending on my mood! Ha!

I received these New Balance shoes and fell in love at first sight. Could they be any cuter? I have worn them numerous time (see here) and this was the latest weekend outfit pairing my favorite camo jeans with my new favorite tennies!

Top, Jeans, Shoes

The pink top that compliments the pink shoes and BAM, comfy and camo go perfectly together!

We are having so much fun shopping for SPRING with all of our clients, stay tuned for more great looks!

Want more pink, comfy camo looks?

Happy SPRING!
