Blogging Update & Summer #OOTD

Hello, ladies!!

We are finally feeling the warm weather here in NYC but that isn’t the only the only thing looking up! In April, I broke the record for most monthly views on the blog! This was something that I was hoping to break in January, when I published a post everyday for a month, but I am psyched that I have finally accomplished this goal!

I was looking back at my goals for the blog and realized that I have been doing great when it comes to improving Instagram content, but I am still not where I want to be when I comes to fashion/style content. I am excited to focus more on this aspect this month and see how you guys react to it when it comes to IG and blog stats! I have been blessed to have so many collaborations come through so I am excited to see that content come to the blog and IG as well!

I have a lot of exciting things in the works that I am looking forward to bringing all of you! I also have been updating the discount page of my blog to reflect all of the coupon codes I get from companies to share with you. It is important to me that you get something from my collaborations as well and I love being able to offer you exclusive discounts for products I love! You can checkout the discount page here.

To kick off my increase in fashion posts, I wanted to share one of my favorite pieces to wear when the weather is so beautiful!

I have been anxiously waiting for weather warm enough to wear this gorgeous dress! Red is definitely my favorite statement color and this dress is a showstopper! It’s a perfect dress for graduation, grad parties, or any occasion that you want to turn heads and feel confident!

The greatest part about this dress is that it comes in almost any color! It is from Flying Colors Apparel and comes in 9 colors! All FCA items come in a multitude of colors and can be personalized with a number of college logos! This company allows you to take game day gear to another level but you can also get them plain, like I did, if they don’t have your colleges logo or you are just looking for a fun piece to add to your wardrobe!

I ordered the Bell Sleeve Dress is in the color Crimson (Item #: GFW453-CRI). I love the flowy bell sleeves and the lightweight rayon fabric of this dress for summer! I also love the fact that this dress is made in the USA. I have an exclusive discount code for you to save 20% off your purchase with MIDTOWNDONNA20 on their site!

I paired this dress with red velvet ball drop earrings I scored from Aldo’s clearance section a few months ago. I always check out Aldo’s clearance section when I’m at the mall because their clearance is always an extra 50% off and you can find some gems! These earrings were around $3 and I scored two pairs of fun sunglasses for only 50 cents each before! If you want to see that mini haul post, click here! Ball drop and tassel earrings are so fun for summer and you can find them for a bargain at H&M and even Wal Mart! You don’t need to splurge on them and they easily take your outfits to the next level!

I also wore a pair of Jessica Simpson white sandals with flowers on them that I purchased last May at TJ Maxx for graduation. White comfortable sandals are so versatile for summer and can be worn with almost any outfit! The flowers on these add a fun touch to the outfit.

I also accessorized with my Sashka Co. beaded bracelets! They are hiding a little under the sleeve of my dress but when I moved around, the bracelets would show and add an even more detailed touch to the outfit! I have a discount code for Sashka Co. for you to save on your purchase of bracelets- use code MIDTOWN20 off your purchase on their site. These bracelets are handmade by women in Nepal who are paid fair wages. These bracelets come in solids or funky patterns, meaning there is a bracelet to match any outfit! My favorites are my solid gold and solid pink! With this outfit, I wore my red and gold striped and gold solid bracelets. The gold on my bracelets nicely complimented the gold hardware on my earrings.

That’s it! With just a few affordable pieces, you can create a fun outfit that will look as if you put in max effort!

I hope you enjoyed this outfit and hearing a little bit of an update from me! Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day!

Exhibit kindness in every aspect of your life!

Until next time,
