Rachel Roy, arm candy, and MK Gansevoort bag

This is a RACHEL Rachel Roy dress I picked up in Las Vegas last summer. I immediately fell in love with its smooth rayon texture, punchy tangerine colour, and fun shape. Today, I've paired it with a pair of cognac wedges from Aldo (read more here), my Michael Kors Gansevoort bag, and three bracelets from Ronbonn (a jewelry fave of one of my favourite bloggers, Brooklyn Blonde). For good measure, I'm wearing my initial pendant necklace from Tiffany & Co and simple crystal earrings from Swarovski.

I'm so happy it's Friday and am thankful we've got a long weekend to enjoy! I have plenty of projects on-the-go at work, am staying committed to working out five times a week, and have so many other personal and blog projects coming down the pipe, I'm looking forward to three days off! This weekend, you can expect a couple more outfit posts, a post on starting a workout routine (I hope other exercise-haters like my former self find it helpful!), and reviews of two Moroccan Oil Luminous Hairsprays and MUFE HD foundation.

I'd like to ask a favour from you, my awesome readers, too. I'll be entering a video contest in collaboration with Salon Grafix hair products at the end of this month and would love it if you could come and vote on my video. If I win, I get tickets to Style 360 at NYFW and the chance to be Salon Grafix's Hair Ambassador in an upcoming video series. I'll be sure to post about the contest and include a link to my entry once it's all underway, but wanted to give you the heads up that it's happening. I'd love you forever for helping me out with this. :)

      Thanks Katt! You’re too nice. I’m trying to find creative ways to get through the last day of unwashed hair…seems to be working!

      I hatteeddd exercising before but honestly feel so good and healthy now that I’ve started and am keeping up with eating well. I can’t wait to reach a year! Good for us!

    Loving the color and flowy vibe to your dress! Your braided topknot is adorable! Also, coveting those bracelets, especially the side cross one!

      Hey Cathy, thanks so much for the compliment! I’ve never had a dress in this shape before but sort of love it – will be looking to sport a lot of peplum come fall!

      Thanks Michelle! I just finished looking at your latest post and want to steal your dress, hair, face.. just about everything. Hehe! I switched over to a more white, clean layout – just trying to let the pictures be the pops of colour. Glad to hear you think it’s working! xx
