Instafashion – “This is Halloween”








This Halloween season, I have dressed up numerous times and have tried to attend many festive events!

Tomorrow, my entire marketing team is dressing up as The Simpsons (I am Maude Flanders haha) and then tomorrow night, little Winston and I are dressing up as cowboys! I have invited my family to come over for some good soup, playing games and passing out candy to little trick-or-treat’ers. I can’t wait to see all of their cute costumes tomorrow night!

Hope you all have a safe Halloween, and remember to follow along on my instagram to see all my past posts and man upcoming ones 🙂

I wanted to make sure all of you knew that Shopbop is having their SALE OF THE SEASON!! By using the code MAINEVENT16, you can get 25% off your entire order under $500, and then 30% off your entire order over $500 (view details here).

I literally look forward to this event every year because I stock up on tons of Christmas gifts. I can find something for everyone in my family, including a few items for myself 😉

I just bought THIS Free People sweater yesterday. I have seen it on tons of other bloggers and am loving it (I heard it is oversized, so I sized down). It is such a great transition piece, and with the 25% off, it is only $88!! Think it might be a cute Thanksgiving option with some cute black leggings and booties.

Above I have linked some of my favorite pieces. Make sure to take a look, or view the entire Shopbop website HERE.

Happy shopping darlings and make sure to stop by the sale before it ENDS TOMORROW!


Instagram – STAGECOACH!

If you follow my Instagram, you many have noticed that a few weeks ago I attended Stagecoach in Palm Spring, California! It is a 3-day music festival that is all about Country Music, and let me tell you, it was a BLAST!

I went down with three of my best girlfriends and had the best time. Between spending time at the hotel pool, eating at fun restaurants and sining the night away at the concert, it was a weekend to remember.

If you ever have the opportunity to go, I would not pass it up 🙂

Below are some of the looks from my western filled weekend! And remember…
“Save a horse, ride a cowboy” hahaha

Spring Color Trends for 2016

Spring is known for saturated colors and bold finishes—not just in budding trees and blossoming flowers, but in fashion trends that reflect the season’s vibrancy as well. This spring, eye-catching hues and stand-out prints are plentiful, filling the runways and store shelves with oodles of designs to try for the warmer months heading our way. Whether you can’t resist a bright new blouse or are easily swayed by a striking pattern, these top trends are must-haves for your spring collection.

Shades of Orange

Energizing, exuberant, and refreshing, orange can also be intimidating when it comes to incorporating the hue into an outfit. But, as Style Caster notes, the bright color is more versatile than you’d expect. That’s good news because orange is one of spring’s hottest shades. To keep the color from looking too Halloween-themed, opt for a persimmon shade and pair with teal. Or go with a sherbet hue, which looks great when worn with olive green or pale pink. For those who are fans of true, vibrant orange or tangerine-inspired shades, pair with camel-colored pieces instead of the usual go-to neutral of black.

Abstract Florals

Florals are a staple of spring fashion, and this season, abstract prints are all the rage. Unlike realistic floral patterns (where a particular flower, like a daisy or rose, are clearly visible), abstract prints feature a design that is muted or blurred in some way. More subtle than a traditional floral, this spring trend lends a certain femininity and depth to any ensemble. For a full scope of the abstract floral print, Lyst provides an extensive edit of dresses, blouses, skirts, and more to get your wardrobe spring-ready. Try an off-the-shoulder blouse (as noted here) or flowy maxi dress for a romantic finish that incorporates even more of the season’s top trends.

Mixed Metallics

High-shine finishes may typically be associated with fall and winter, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t rock metallic for spring and beyond. This season, mix the on-trend incandescent material with neutral pieces and metal accessories to achieve a look that is equal parts casual and glam. To get your shimmer on, Lauren Conrad offers a variety of ways to master the mixed metallics trend. The first step is to choose a single metallic statement piece, adding touches of other metals into the ensemble with your accessories. Pair jeans and a neutral-hued suede blazer with silver pumps and gold bangle bracelets; a pleated gold midi skirt with a cropped leather jacket; or a metallic-print mini dress with rose gold clutch and nude sandals.

Graphic Lines

Stripes are no stranger to the spring season, but this time around, the playful print is anything but average. Vibrant colors, scattered lines, and embellished designs give this pattern a modern upgrade to take it into 2016 and beyond. To seamlessly incorporate this trend into your wardrobe, Brit + Co suggests swapping out your favorite striped pieces for ones that pack more of a punch, and looking for graphic lined styles that work as surprising statement pieces. Think midi dresses, wide-leg trousers, and light, spring-appropriate coats.
