LBD

Lately, I don’t often have the preference or an occasion to wear a little black dress. But I did this weekend and I will try to find another excuse soon to wear this outfit again.

The Sutton Peplum Dress from Tuckernuck puts a feminine twist on the staple shift. I adore the ruffled peplum hem. This dress goes from day to night and season to season with ease. Whether you are going to the office, dinner with friends or the ballet, this architectural piece will be a go-to. It looks great with classic high heels or even flats.

The fabric quality is superb and the fit is flattering and roomy without losing its flirty shape. It was created in several colors and even a color-block combo. I’ve linked them in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, but right now they are unfortunately all out of stock. You can sign up for communications through the website for a restock!

No shame in my mirror selfie game!

Have a great week! 🖤 xo


Mono-creme-atic

This outfit may be very “vanilla” in hue, but it had me feeling simply sophisticated.

I’ve always been a rule-breaker when it comes it white after Labor Day. These creamy ivory wear-to- work pants are less rebellious than a bright true white pant. I love how tailored they fit and feel, and they’ve allowed me to comfortably stray away from my typical tapered hem.

I can’t wait to pair these pants with a classic cream cable sweater as the weather continues to cool off.

My pumps and short sleeve sweater are old, but I’ve linked them as well as other similar pieces in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app if you’d like to recreate this outfit.

Have a fabulous week! xo

Cooksburg

Another Cooksburg Camping Trip ✔️

After a week vacation, Andy and I ventured off to Cooksburg, Pennsylvania with his family

There’s something about unwanding and separating myself from my day to day routine. Work takes up about 80% of my life, and having the opportunity to step back and enjoy what’s right in front of me is something I soak in when I can.

I wrapped up a few of my favorite memories down at camp. If you have the chance to take a day trip or weekend getaway to Cooksburg I highly encourage it.

We always have so many memories and the view is truly breathtaking.

Some things we did at camp:

– kayaked – hiked – played games – ate incredible food- shared some laughs – had a fire – hammock snoozes – relaxed in the river – saw some friends – relaxed

28

Birthdays always put me into a super reflective mood. I love to think about the future and reminisce about the past, to show how far I’ve grown in just one year.

Over this last year, I have changed the way I talk to myself, the way I view myself, and have changed where I invested my energy.

My twenties have been so enriching and I always get excited on birthdays reflecting and knowing that so much is to come that I can’t even imagine or anticipate. I treat each birthday like a “new year” and I do some goal setting.

As an Enneagram type 2, I struggle at times to do what’s best for me if I think that it’ll have a negative effect on others. I have started to learn how to have a healthy balance. I can’t pour from any empty cup. I have also vowed NOT to change who I are to satisfy other people.

Sharing some of my favorite memories this past birthday week


With love and excitement

Allie, 28

Blue Eyes in Blue Eyelet

I have been gravitating towards dresses (specifically blue ones!) this summer, that’s no secret or surprise if I’m being honest. It’s so easy to throw on a single piece garment and be ready to go, almost effortlessly. This season of my life I don’t have a lot of time to get ready, but something about wearing a dress makes me feel very easily put together. And I love and appreciate all dresses from casual to classic, frilly to fancy!

This recent purchase of mine is a sweet little eyelet dress. This is one of those dresses that can be worn time and time again.

The key to finding a good eyelet piece is making sure it is fully lined. As pretty of a pattern eyelet can be, those lacy little holes can be tricky. A full lining or slip can make an eyelet dress go from beach cover up to dinner appropriate.

I think that the flutter sleeves and flounce hem on this dress are simply adorable. And the a-line is still flattering and a good shape.

I wasn’t able to find my exact dress online but linked tons of similar options and other eyelet styles that I love on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, along with my accessories!
