Boho Chic…

Hey guys I wanted to share this outfit of the day with you before it gets too hot out! I am really in love with this top from Fevrie and have a 25% off discount code for the site until the end of April.  They have tons of really great quality pieces that will transition from season to season! I can’t wait to wear this shirt with a pencil skirt or shorts when it is warm out!!
IMG_7245 I also have gotten a ton of use out of this hat from Target and will link some of my other favorite options below! IMG_7235IMG_7247 I really like how this is kind of a boho chic inspired outfit with the wider leg jeans, cutout top, and floppy hat.  I just picked up a new pair of tan wedges that will also work well with this look!  The ones I am wearing are a few years old and these Jessica Simpson ones are so comfy I can’t wait to wear them!

Don’t forget to use the code ‘bellanoochi’ at Fevrie.com to save 25% off and it works on sale items too!! (The code will be good until the end of April)IMG_7253The Faith Top (Fevrie)| Floppy Hat| Boot Cut Jeans| Lat & Lo Necklace| Tory Burch Large Logo Studs| Brown Strappy Wedge| Phone Case|

#Classic…

If you know me then you know I love a good business casual outfit, I have been rocking them since high school haha!  Any excuse to wear a skirt or dress pant I am all over, and what better reason than a graduation ceremony!

Eric graduated from his Army school that he has been training for over the past 18 months!  This is the entire reason we moved to North Carolina and I couldn’t be more proud of how hard he has worked learning another language and all of the physical challenges that he has trained for!  We are so proud of you and so happy that you are finished!!

I love this outfit because it is a summer twist on a classic pencil skirt and white blouse.  All of these items can be worn a million different ways and dressed up or dressed down which is why I love buying easy basics!

I got it on sale in the B.P. department of Nordys and it has held up perfectly!  This skirt is a great twist on a classic with really pretty eyelet details embroidered all over the skirt.  I think that it would look great with any color top or tank and even a long-sleeved shirt to transition into the cooler months!IMG_9439 IMG_9447We found some beautiful streets and gorgeous architecture in downtown Fayetteville after we took Eric out to eat to celebrate his graduation!  I had no idea how beautiful this part of town was!!  As always thanks to mom for taking the best pictures love you!!

#OOTD

Just a quick post about this outfit I wore to my sisters graduation because it is filled with great basics that can transition from season to season and can be dressed up or down.  I am in love with this shirt and have it in hot pink as well, they are by the brand Frenchi which can be found in the BP section of Nordstrom.  I love how they look more dressed up than a normal cotton T, but are super comfy and can be worn tucked in or out depending on your mood!  I have worn the white a ton of times already this summer and am so happy that I found it a couple of months back!

The skirt I am loving because of the color!  It is a beautiful emerald-green that I found at J. Crew on sale for under $20.00!  Even though the color is a bit darker hence why it was on sale, I think it worked perfectly with the white top.  This skirt would also be cute in the fall or winter paired with opaque tights and boots to give it a totally different look.

The wedges are Steven by Steve Madden which I found on Amazon and are extremely comfortable to walk in because there is no platform in the front and they are just a basic neutral that can dress up a skirt but still be worn with a casual outfit like jeans and a t-shirt!

Neon…

I wanted to share one of my recent finds that I am so excited about!  I shared a while ago that I have finally lost most of the weight I gained over the last two years so happily not many of my clothes fit me which is exciting but annoying at the same time because I have to buy a lot of basics over again!  I have been on the hunt for new pieces that I will be able to wear in the hot summers that we will have here in NC but that will also transition into cooler weather as well.

This shirt is a great basic that is perfect by itself for summer because it is literally neon orange, but I can pair it with a blazer or jacket in the fall and winter as well.  I found this particular one at Nordstrom Rack and I love it!  They also sell a similar cut at Nordstrom which I ordered online and am waiting to receive by the brand Frenchi and they are perfect with jeans, shorts or even tucked into skirts!IMG_7365I paired the shirt with Gap Always Skinny jeans and a pair of comfy wedges from Steve Madden. For accessories I have my purse and a new initial bangle I found from C. Wonder in white.  I think its a great casual but put together outfit perfect for spring!

Coffee Date…

I seriously am obsessed with coffee I drink it everyday!  I have always loved the flavor and coffee ice-cream was my all time fave flavor!!  Now that I am eating a vegan diet I still enjoy my java but just dairy free!

You can still go to your fave coffee spot and order a great coffee but I always look for a dairy-free low-cal option.  At home I use my Keurig and make a medium blend with Truvia and Unsweetened Almond Breeze milk.  At Starbucks my go-to is an iced coffee with sugar-free vanilla syrup and a splash of soy milk.  When its cooler out I also love a skinny vanilla late with soy milk instead of fat-free milk.

I love trying new coffee spots especially the little ones that aren’t too well-known they usually have the best coffee and a fun unique atmosphere.  Washington had some of the best coffee spots but we have found a few here in NC and they are perfect to meet friends or loved ones to chat and catch up!  Definitely a go-to activity for my mom and I!

Black and Gold…

Black and gold are two of my favorite color combinations especially when it comes to accessories!  The weather has been insane here in NC complete with a snow storm and losing our power for two days.  It has definitely brought back memories of past winters while growing up in PA!  We are so lucky that it passed in only a few days knowing how bad the weather has been in other parts of the country.  It was definitely a good reminder of how lucky we are for the small things in life, like hot water and electricity sometimes we get caught up in life and forget how blessed we are!

Since it was so cold I was able to break out some of my winter wear that I love but haven’t worn in quite some time now!
IMG_5424 IMG_5404This vest is one of my favorite pieces, it’s faux fur which I love and I found it while shopping with one of my girl friends Emily about a year and a half ago at the BCBC outlet in PA.  I have only worn it a couple of times because it definitely makes a statement, but I think it’s gorgeous! I love the coloring of the material and that the length is longer so that it covers the tush area!
IMG_5416
IMG_5398 IMG_5432 These boots are awesome because they are very comfortable, but they are versatile depending on how you want to style them.  They are long enough to go over the knee and are very warm in the winter or you can fold them over and use the button, or you could just scrunch them down below the knee.  IMG_5422 I paired the vest with a long sleeved black sweater and leggings which are matt black in real life, but don’t photograph well due to the lycra it creates a flash back.  I also wore my favorite purse of all time that I got for Christmas and some of my favorite gold accessories.  IMG_5396

Bag Review…

I just wanted to do a review about a new bag I was so generously gifted for Christmas this year.  It’s the Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip Tote, quite a long name I know!  I have been looking at this purse for a while now going back and forth over the colors and if I would really like it or not.  I have to say that I am in love with this bag! I think that it is beautiful and classic, but also very functional for being a mom with lots of things to carry around for a toddler.  I would never just go out and buy a purse like this so I am so grateful that my parents and hub got it for me!

IMG_6884

I was tossed up between this bag and the new Rebecca Minkoff tote bag that is also beautiful but the deciding factor for me was that the Tory came with a cross body strap.  This has made a world of difference for me constantly carrying around my daughter.  Now that she is getting older she doesn’t need as many things like blankets and bottles so I can get away with one bag for the both of us.

IMG_6873

The bag is made out of Saffiano leather has a zip pocket and two media holders on the inside.  The cross body strap is removable and also adjustable which is perfect for us shorter gals!  One of the best features of this bag would be the two large zip pockets on the front and back of the bag.  These are perfect for important documents like passports, work papers, and your wallet.  The durability of the leather and the construction of the bag assures me that I will have this for a very long time.  I love that it is a tote, but beautifully holds it shape and doesn’t slouch when its sitting on a table.

I am thrilled with this bag and couldn’t be more excited to add it to my closet!  My mom and Eric purchased this bag from Bloomingdales, it is still on the website and comes in a couple different colors.  If you are interested in checking this bag out I would suggest to wait for a coupon and get on their friends and family list so you can save up to 20%!

If you are interested in seeing what I carry in my bag promise you won’t judge and check out my video below!
