Found It On Amazon Friday – 10/18/19

Happy Friday!! Is it just me or did this week go seriously fast?! Anyway, so excited to share my first #FoundItOnAmazonFriday! I literally get everything and anything from Amazon and have for the longest time. I even ordered all of my halloween costume items from there for the past few years and they never disappoint.

#1, 2, 3 & 4Scoop neck bodysuit | Brown Leather Skirt | White Sherpa Area Rug | Sticky Bra

Wearing a medium in the bodysuit and skirt. Wearing a normal size in my sticky bra (C). This sticky bra is literally the best. I use it anytime I am wearing a lower cut shirt or a shirt that I do not want the straps to show. I have actually had this skirt since winter and loved it. It pairs so well with so much, and I have been looking for a good white bodysuit for layering. Also this sherpa rug is AMAZING. I am ordering some larger ones to put around the house. It is really cozy and warm.

#5Halter Neck Dress

I love dresses like this that cinch at the waist and are flattering to every bottom type. I have a curvy bottom and love dresses like this that accentuate my waist. Wearing a small in the dress and a small in the jacket. I have had this leather jacket for a few years now and LOVE it. Wearing a 9.5 in the booties. Although pricey, I have had them for over two years and they are still perfect. I also have them in white.

#6 – Sweater

Ok this i my favorite outfit. The sweater is SO comfy and I love it paired with the leather leggings (from Express) and the Snake Booties. I am wearing a small in the sweater, medium in the pants, and 9 in the boots. I would simply pair it with a lace bralette and you have the perfect outfit.

Travel Guide: Athens, Greece

Every year my family & I usually go on a trip all together, and I always look forward to it. It makes me feel like I am a kid again. We usually go to Aruba since we have timeshare, but we went to Greece this time around (second time!). We were so excited to go to Greece again and believe me, we all had count downs going on! Anyway, my brother and I did a ton of research to figure out what islands we wanted to go to and where to stay. When we went in 2016, we visited Athens, Naxos (our fave!), and Santorini. We actually got our engagement pictures done in Santorini, and it was so worth it! But, we always start off our trip in Athens.

Anyway, Athens is not only the capital of Greece, but also the place with the most Ancient History. You fly into Athens, and it has so much history. I love seeing the history and the ruins because it is part of me and who I am. I personally wouldn’t suggest staying in Athens too long. It should be more of a hub to stay a night and then travel to the islands. My family and I stayed there for a few days because we had a wedding, but you don’t want to stay more than one or two nights since there is so much more to see. But, I am going to share some fun places to see, places to eat, and where we stayed.

Another thing you can do is take day trips to areas outside of Athens. I will touch up Lake Vouliameni in Places to see below. We went there for the wedding and I highly recommend checking it out. It was gorgeous!

I am going to do a round up of my outfits first and then will share the rest 🙂

Bodysuit || Shorts || Sneakers || Bag

Dress || Shoes

Shorts || Similar Shorts || Top || Similar Sandals 1 || Similar Shoes 2

  • Visit the Acropolis – Make sure to bring your walking shoes, because it’s a hike but so worth it. This was honestly the highlight of my time in Athens (other than watching the changing of the guards). You have to do some walking to get there, but once you do, seeing the history and the beauty it still has is well worth it. Make sure to bring your phone or camera because the views on the top are stunning.
  • Go to the Plaka – If you are looking for a village feel, this is the spot to be. I love the Plaka because it makes me feel like I am living through history of where my grandparents grew up. They grew up on islands, but the village feel is the same. When I am in Greece I miss then 10x more, and it makes me feel at peace and at home. The Plaka has the cutest shops and is the perfect place to get some souvenirs. I found some of the cutest souvenirs and bracelets to bring home! I also love their Grecian dresses and clothing.
  • Visit Lake Vouliagmeni – Take a day trip or a night stay trip to Lake Vouliagmeni. It is seriously STUNNING, and a perfect little getaway out of the craziness of Athens. It is about 35-40 minutes outside of Athens and you can either rent a car and drive there or take a cab.
  • Visit the Hellenic Parliament – Outside of the parliament is where the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is, and they have The Greek Presidential Guards there 24/7, the Evzones. They are in their traditional Greek Uniforms, and you can see their traditional ceremony for changing of the guards. You can also take pictures with them, but they will not smile and you cannot touch them. It really is impressive and nice to see. It was originally a palace but is now the house of parliament.

Honestly I purposely didn’t take notes or pictures of anything because everywhere in the Plaka or Monostaraki has excellent restaurants and food. Mine main favorites in Greece are Moussaka, Grilled Octopus, Gyro, Souvlaki and so much more.

ACROPOLIS GEM: This AirBNB was seriously so nice. We usually stay at hotels while we are here, but opted for an airbnb since there were so many of us. This comfortably fit 7 of us, with 4 beds and 2 baths. The place was literally immaculate and so nice. Everything was so clean and we enjoyed the view from the balcony. It had a gorgeous view of the Acropolis from the the dining area, the balcony, and one of the bed rooms. It also was within walking distance to Plaka and Monostaraki.

ATHENS MANSION LUXURY SUITES: Ok this place was seriously gorgeous and we will be back here for sure. This is in a part of Athens that they are trying to rebuild with a stunning view of the Acropolis. Right now there are a ton of abandoned buildings in Athens that have Graffitti all over it and this was one of them until they fixed it up. They hope to do the same with all the surrounding buildings and re-build them like they use to be. Anyway, it is stunning and I highly recommend it. They have good & Free breakfast on the rooftop in the morning, and good food throughout the day for purchase with a full bar. So gorgeous!

Amazon Try on Haul – Fall 2019

As you all know Amazon is my one stop shop for EVERYTHING lol. I get home decor, furniture, work stuff, clothing, shoes, swimsuits and so much more from them. The quality is usually great 95% of the time, but the key is to read reviews and know what you are buying. I also wouldn’t buy anything with a low rating.

You can also head over to my stories or Amazon highlight to watch me talk about all of these items, if you want to hear what I have to say haha BUT anyway, here we go.

Hat || Cardigan || Jeans || Top || Flats || Booties || Adhesive Bra

This will probably be one of my go to fall looks. It is so easy to dress it up or down with flats or booties and just so simple and cute. I am wearing a 4 in the tank, 6 in the jeans (levis run small for me I always size up), small in the cardigan, 9 in the flats, and 9 in the booties but ordered a 9.5 as they are a tiny bit snug.

Top || Cardigan || Jeans || Booties || Similar Booties

I am wearing this cardigan in a small but it is definitely oversized. Haven’t decided if I am a huge fan of this one yet only because I have one so similar but still haven’t decided. Wearing a 9.5 in my booties and a small in the top. I honestly just paired this quickly, but you can do so many things with it. Wear it with a dress or skirt, so many options.

Tees

I am NOT a fan of crew neck tighter tees, so this is not up my alley, but if you are, these shirts were seriously so comfortable and would be super cute for laying pieces in the fall. You get a pack of 2 and this one came with a white and black stripes shirt. I am wearing medium but it was way to big on my body but fine for my arms. I like the loose tees better for layering. They are currently unavailable but come back in stock often.

Tank

Ok I thought I was getting like a chiffon material here but its cotton. Still super cute but I am looking for more of the chiffon one. I am wearing a small and otherwise really like it. I might still keep it, not sure yet haha

Skirt || Tee || Jacket || Booties

This will be another fall favorite outfit without a doubt. I just love graphic tees tied up and think its super cute with jeans. I love it paired with the leather too! Wearing a small in the skirt, medium in tee, medium in jacket (size up for layering), and 9.5 in shoes.

Dress

I am loving this dress color for the fall and the dress itself is super cute so it is a win win! I would totally wear it for Thanksgiving too! Wearing a medium.

Dress

THIS THIS THIS. Obsessed. It is a bit see through so make sure you wear nude or white undies, but its amazing. IF their are any brides getting married in the fall or winter and need a cute dress this is it!. The sleeves are also super stretchy. Wearing a small.

Romper || Similar Boots 1 2 3 4

This outfit is everything. I love green olive colors with beiges and browns. These boots are old Stuart Weitzmans but I linked some similar ones. The romper is a size medium.

Jacket || Dress

So I looked and this dress is a small but its very big. Nothing a belt can’t fix because it is super cute. Also the jacket doesn’t match, I know, but I was looking for a grey Faux Leather Coat and found this color and am loving it.


More will be coming soon! Hope you enjoyed 🙂

2019 Prime Day

I will continue to add to this post and share more but wanted to get something up asap for you guys 🙂

Wedding Guest Dress Inspo

Happy Saturday!! For me this Week kind of dragged on so the weekend was necessary. We celebrated one of my family friend’s wedding last night and we are so excited for her & her husband! We have known each other since diapers and it’s exciting to see her meet her love, and to witness their wedding!

Any who, John & I have 3 weddings this year, with this being the first, so I am always looking for some inspo for what to wear to them. I am loving the lilacs, yellows, and blues for this season so you will see a lot of that. I am also loving the floral dress trend. I think its such a cute idea to wear to a wedding because its not SUPER fancy, but still very nice.

Which one if your favorite? (To shop any of the items shown below, just click on the item and it will bring you directly to the site of the item!)

Save vs. Splurge – Vacation Edition

Hi babes! I have a trip coming up, and have been non-stop looking for some cute outfits and items. I have been obsessed with finding some cute kimonos for the beach, bikinis, and some more cute vacation items. I fell in love with the Valentino sandals, but couldn’t justify spending $345 on them, and knew I had to find a cheaper option/dupe. Thanks to amazon, I did!! I am sharing a few of my other save vs splurge ideas for you gals <3
