Over the weekend I attended the Rachel Pally sample sale, and much to my surprise the designer herself was there! Rachel Pally’s staple item in her collection has to be the jersey dress that comes in a variety of styles, prints, lengths, and sizes (ranging from xxs-3xl). The dresses are flowy and compliment every figure. She also designs swimwear, tops, pants, and skirts. This brand has become a celebrity favorite!

As July comes to an end department stores start filling their racks with fall/winter items. I love fall fashion because there is so much more you can do to spice up your outfits (coats, layering, and use of more complex materials). Here are my favorite items from this week.
Over the weekend I came across this fantastic recipe on the Philadelphia Indulgence package for Berry Wonton Cups. They are light, fruity, and have just the right amount of richness. A bonus–they are quick and easy to make! Perfect for a summer bbq.
What You Need
16 Won Ton Wrappers
1 Tub (8 oz.) Philadelphia Indulgence White Chocolate Cream Cheese Spread (or any other flavor will work)
2 Cups Fresh Blackberries ( I used strawberries and raspberries for color)
Heat oven to 350°F.
Spray 16 muffin pan cups with cooking spray (I used Pam), and line with wonton wrappers, extending edges of wrappers over tops of cups (to make ends pointed)
Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let wontons cool.
Spoon 1 Tbsp. Philadelphia Indulgence into each wonton cup just before serving and top with your favorite berries.
Grateful that the weekend is here! I plan meet up with a friend for happy hour and girl time, then spend the rest of the weekend celebrating my two closest friend’s birthdays. Here are my favorite fashion finds from this week.
Lately designers and brands have been branching outside of clothing, makeup and beauty products. I love designer products that bring unexpected fashion to everyday items. Designers are using their brands not only to create fashion, but a lifestyle. Some of my favorites are notepads, bicycles, and even luxury hotels!
Once again the weekend is here! I read this quote and thought it set the perfect tone for this weekend “Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless” which is exactly what I plan to do. Here are my favorite items from this week.
This summer has been filled with events! I’ve had several birthdays, engagements, weddings, bridal showers, and engagement party’s to attend, and my oldest sister had her second child two weeks ago. This weekend I thought I would stick around locally and spend time doing nothing. On Friday night I began reading 50 Shades of Grey OMG! It’s been very interesting and unexpected. The next day I went to browse stationery from Sugar Paper. They have unique personalized items. Sunday I attended brunch with a friend, went on a hike, and began to organize ideas for the blog. It has felt good taking some time to catch up on things.
Friday is finally here, and I can’t wait for the weekend! I wasn’t impressed with any of the 4th of July sales that I attended, but did love some of the new merchandise and designer collections that weren’t on sale (isn’t that how it always goes!). Here are some of my favorite purchases from this week!
This weekend I had plans to attended a dinner party, and had a ton of errands to run during the day. I planned to wear an outfit that I could dress up for the evening by throwing on a blazer, heels, and changing my purse.
