September Playlist

Topshop Heart Loafers | Bangles and Bungalows

Lately I have been trying to get my blogging groove back after being away for much of late summer and it has been tough. Reminiscing about past travels is a sign of a good vacation, right? On a recent trip to New York City, I bought these lovely Swiftheart Slippers from Top Shop. It is always nice to represent a little love in your life as a reminder of the possibilities life can bring. Music is one of my favorite reminders that spark feelings of love, happiness, sorrow and worlds past and future. Listen to my September playlist here on Spotify.

#MyCosmoStyle at the Cosmopolitan Hotel Las Vegas invited me to share my style for a day at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Can you believe that I have never been to Vegas? I imagine the bright city lights, constant stimulation and endless entertainment to be bigger and bolder than in any other city. But more than anything, I get excited by the idea that something crazy fun could happen only in Vegas. No, I'm not looking for Hangover style fun, but just an experience to remember. And I would definitely love to stay at the Cosmopolitan while enjoying it all.

There are so many activities available at the luxurious Cosmpolitan itself like shopping, hanging by the pool, or catching a Bruno Mars performance at the Chelsea. Did you know there's a Rent the Runway store there? You can pick up a designer dress (intimates, outwear and accessories too!) to wear that night and return the next day. That definitely saves you room in your suitcase! If I had 24 hours to spend at the Cosmopolitan, I would relax by the pool and get a nice glow before heading out to a concert at the Chelsea and ending the night with dancing at the Marquee. And here's what I'd wear:

Have you visited Vegas recently or stayed at the Cosmopolitan? I would love to know your recommendations on what to do and wear!

Loverly Dream Day Style Challenge

Loverly, your online guide to planning a wedding, asked me to style a wedding dress based on the picture-perfect setting of my choice. While I am not getting married anytime soon, I have definitely thought about my ultimate wedding venue. What girl hasn't? When asked if I would prefer the beach, the city or a rustic backdrop, I was torn. I would love to get married on the beach, but I am intrigued by the glamour of a chic city wedding. So here are my two styled looks based on finds from Loverly and around the web with an East/West twist of course!

Loverly Beach Wedding | Bangles and Bungalows


1 / 2: EARRINGS, BANGLE / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Loverly City Wedding | Bangles and Bungalows

Which look is your favorite? What's your ideal wedding venue? Have you tried Loverly?
