Best Dressed: CFDA Awards 2017

Last night the annual CFDA Awards took place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. It was a night to celebrate talent within the fashion industry. The stars and designers strutted down the red carpet, many side by side. I picked out my four favorite looks of the night. You may see a trend. Lots of florals and mock turtlenecks, which somehow works for June. For more looks and to see who took home awards, check out Vogue.

Unboxing: Japan Candy Box May 2017

I love sweets! Chocolate, cakes, cookies, and, my number one favorite, gummies! I also love to try new things. When I heard about the Japan Candy Box, I had placed my order before you could say sweet tooth. The Japan Candy Box is a monthly subscription that costs $19.90. It comes with a variety of sweet and savory Japanese treats. I received my first box a few weeks ago and just got around to trying it the other night with my boyfriend. It ended up being a fun little taste testing during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Out of the 10 (yes, ten!) snacks we received, I love 4 of them. Obviously, I loved both gummy candies. They tasted just like concord grapes and smelled incredible! In fact, everything was very scented, which wasn't always a god thing. The Potato Ring Snacks (pictured above) smelled like cat food, but surprisingly had no taste. I did not care for any of the savory snacks.
I just received an email with shipping info for my second box and I am so excited to try the fun treats! I will definitely do another post!

The cutest strawberry chocolate pieces.

One of my favorite gummies. It tasted like juicy grapes and was molded into grapes on a vine! How cute!

Summer Wedding Style

Summer weddings are just around the corner. But you may be like me and have no weddings! Instead I have quite a few baby-related events. This weekend I have a baptism for my best friend's sweet little girl and in July I have a baby shower. The looks shown could easily be worn to weddings, showers or baptisms. I love the idea of a fancy jumpsuit. Not only is this look on trend, but imagine how comfortable it would be. I envision wearing this to a beautiful outdoor wedding surrounded by gardens dancing the night away with the bride. For the second look, you can't go wrong with a floral dress and color block heels. Simple, sleek, and beautiful. The third look may be my favorite. I love the color and the off the shoulder sleeves. The midi length is perfect for a more formal wedding. Pair this sea foam green dress with a pink clutch and nude heels and you are ready to go!
