New Year’s Eve Metallic Starburst Bib Dress & Sparkly Hatband

Wow. It’s January 26th and I am so late!!! It has been quite a month though- I signed on a new job, started said new job, have been back and forth to California twice, and signed on my new apartment. So, hopefully that helps explain the delay!

I celebrated New Year’s Eve at my sister and brother in law’s house. They threw a lovely dinner party with a few of their couple friends. It’s cliche, but I do love to wear a sequin on New Year’s. I’ve had this gray silk with metallic sequin and fringe sparkly dress sitting in my closet for the past (few!) years. This was the perfect time to wear it. I paired it with a new sparkly hatband / padded headband (trend alert!) and of course, a red lip. I kept the look simple with sexy black strappy sandals.

Happy 2020! Hope it’s been off to a great start for you!

Tropical Destination Wedding Look: Part 2

For the second part of the tropical destination wedding series here, I wanted to focus on beach wear! I love this gorgeous, beaded, and sheer cover up that I lounged around in all day at the beach the day of the wedding. It is just the right amount of skin for a beach tunic, and the beading and mirror beads feel so exotic. I paired this intricate cover up with a straw brimmed Panama hat and a favorite pair of gold rimmed sunglasses. No shoes needed! I think that every woman should have at least one go to beach tunic or cover up for the beach or the pool…it’s a closet staple. As an added bonus, on the day I wore this tunic I saw baby sea turtles hatching on the beach! It was absolutely amazing. This tunic is good luck.
