Suited For Summer

Looking for workday polish for the warmer months? Dress to impress with a vintage suit. Nothing says vintage more than 40s, 50s, and 60s inspired styles. Since I'm traveling to a week long conference this weekend I have completely been gushing over suits. Full, two piece, top matches the bottom suits, and I'm super obsessed now. Check out some of my favorite looks.

I stumbled across the AMAZING collection of vintage and modern inspired suits at Tell me you don't die.

I've been brainstorming how to transform these looks to work with my VERY limited travel budget. Needless to say, my packing is still not complete. Wish me luck!

Little Sin City: Hangover Part 3

After our lazy beach day, we ordered room service and prepared for our evening out on the town which we eventually dubbed "hangover part 3" due to the crazy adventures we had. We headed to an awesome spot in the Trump Towers called Evo for drinks then headed to a beach bar to check it out. We continued the night by heading down the boardwalk to HOOTERS for some more grub where we met some awesomely wild people. The night ended at the nearby bar Firewater where we danced the night away! See the recap below.

Little Sin City: Day 1

This past weekend my sister turned 21 so being the lovely big sissy that I am, I took her to ATLANTIC CITY to celebrate!!! Woooohoooo!!! I guess it was kind of a celebration for me too since it was my first time there too. We stayed in the Sheraton hotel which was perfectly in the mix of things and had a fabulous Miss America display. On display were some fabulous vintage gowns worn by past winners that I absolutely fell in love with. The first night we went to an dinner at a nearby Mexican spot and then headed to all white party hosted by Jamie Foxx at the pool deck at Harrah's. We didn't get the memo about the "all white" part but we still partied all night.

Let the party begin!
