Summer Outfit Inspiration {Seaglass}

Summer is officially here! There is no excuse not to add a little color into your wardrobe now that you will have a glowing, sun-kissed complexion . I have always been drawn to shades of the sea. Hey, I am a Pisces! So it comes as no surprise that I am currently inspired by “oceanesque” pieces at the moment. The cool hues of blue and aqua pair perfectly with white or light-washed cutoffs. To transition the look from day to night, add a light, airy sweater. Happy Solstice!

Father’s Day {To Bob, my Hero}

Screen Shot 2013-06-16 at 10.18.16 AM

Happy Father’s Day to my hero! You have taught me kindness, unconditional love, shown me how to work hard and be the best person I can be. You inspire me everyday with your generosity, humor and huge heart. This is also why everyone you meet is so drawn to you. There is only one Bobby Reynolds and I am so lucky to be able to call you my dad. I love you!

And Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. Have a wonderful day celebrating.

Splurge or Save

1. J Crew {Emery Sandals $248}

2. Isabel Marant {The Caroll Sandals $1,035}

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! How fun are these Isabel Marant sandals? I have not had the pleasure of trying them on but they look comfortable with the low-stack chunky heel. They are all over fashion blogs and magazines at the moment. When I saw the price tag I knew I wouldn’t be buying them anytime soon. Flipping through the recent J Crew catalog I came across these sandals that have a similar feel to Isabel Marant’s but at a fraction of the cost.

Xxx, Steph

Outfit Check List {Memorial Weekend}

Outfit Check List

Memorial Day weekend , for me, is the official kick off to summer. If your plans involve lounging pool or beachside like myself, there are a few essentials you will need. I love all the cute one pieces trending right now. Some are definitely not meant for laying out, so choose carefully or you could end up with a really crazy tan! A perk of the one piece is it transitions really well into an evening look. Throw a long skirt over it and some nice sandals and you’re ready to go to dinner. For day time don’t forget a hat, sunnies, waterproof mascara (A MUST) and lots of sunblock. Sun burns and sun spots are not an attractive look! I know from experience:) Have a happy Memorial Day Weekend!

High End to High Street

There are plenty of “lust-worthy” fashion pieces I am drooling over at the moment. And because the real deal is not realistically obtainable, I have hunted down more affordable versions. High Street is a term often used in the UK for shops that are for the everyday girl….in other words, it will not leave a hole in your wallet. Below are my currents scores of the look-for-less.

THE Hat

Screen Shot 2013-04-30 at 8.21.19 AM

I have been wearing this Rag & Bone hat non-stop. Surprising even to myself, I never wear hats, until now! I’ve been receiving a lot of compliments on it, so here it is…..THE hat.  It is quite possibly my favorite thing at the moment. Not only does Rag & Bone make killer denim, their accesories aren’t too shabby either:) Have a great day!

April In Pictures

April1 April3

Hello friends! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I’m sure you’ve noticed I spent the first half of the month in China. As the denim fit model for junior company, Pacsun, I traveled to China with a team consisting of a designer, technical designer, production managers, creative director and buyer. The largest team I have traveled with for work to date! It was a whirlwind trip, spending long hours in factories fitting and perfecting garments for their “Back-to-School” season. I flew back and went straight to Palm Springs for a weekend at Coachella Music Festival with my husband, sis and friends. So much fun, but an exhausting month to say the least! Lastly, this weekend I had a reunion with my best girlfriends from college. It was the perfect end to a crazy month.

Xxx, Steph
