Rain boots and rain days

Another rainy day here in good ole CT! But, who can complain when they get to wear their super cute Hunters this often!? These bright pink Hunter rain boots can brighten up even the rainiest of days! The pop of color they bring to any outfit is like no other! And who could resist a comfy turtle neck sweater to pair with a cute pair of rain boots?? I know I can't! This turtle neck sweater is from no place other than Forever 21! Its cute and comfy characteristics make for the perfect rainy day wear, and make for a just as comfy lounge outfit after a long, groggy day. Top off this outfit with a light coat from H&M and you're ready to splash off for the day!

Play ball!

Hello friends!  Its been a busy weekend here in my hometown.  Spring is in full force and that means baseball is too!  Which is exactly what I've spent most of my weekend enjoying.  As I run from one baseball game to the next, I've got to do it in style.  So today, I'm sharing with you my baseball attire from yesterdays games. 

A baseball shirt, a baseball hat and two baseball games.  Baseball, baseball, baseball!  Fortunately, yesterday was a beautiful day to lay out your picnic blanket, grab some lunch and enjoy a game.  To compliment this spring/baseball weather, I wore a light long sleeve baseball shirt from American Eagle with ripped skinny jeans from Express, a Polo hat and my latest steal, my new sandals from Marshall's. This outfit is as simple as it gets, so I topped it off with a dainty gold bar necklace, my everyday wrist candy and called it a day.  Play ball!

Getting edgy with it

Switching things up today.  Feeling edgy with my cut off Tee from Forever 21 and ripped black jeans from Zara.  Paired with my fav Adidas Superstar sneaks and a baggy old fashion jean shirt from Old Navy.  Got my fav accessories on as well today, some layered gold necklaces and my fav wrist candy. Add a top knot and some lipstick and you're stylin'.

Love this look!  It's fun edgy feel, is perfect for those days where you want to look good, but don't feel like getting all dolled up.

Drip Drop

You know it! It's Tuesday shoesday! Spice up a rainy day with some fun Hunters! This long sleeve black dress from Forever 21 paired with my favorite pink Hunters is perfect for a rainy day. 

This outfit is accessorized with a jean jacket from Target, a necklace from J Crew and my everyday wrist candy (for details check out yesterdays post). What shoes did you wear on this fine Tuesday shoesday? Happy Tuesday! (:

Denim days

Even though it's Monday, and my first day back from spring break, my outfit today made it all worth the while! This absolutely adorable off the shoulder denim, trapeze dress is from Express and paired with my ever so comfortable espadrille wedges from Nordstroms, and I kid you not, when I say comfortable, I mean COMFORTABLE! These wedges are a go to!  

Today I thought I would highlight my accessories as well, seeing as I wear them quite often! My wrist candy today, and almost everyday is, my Michael Kors watch, a Loren Hope and a Stella Dot bracelet. This wrist candy is simple and can be worn with almost any outfit, which is a major plus. Along with that, I am also wearing a gold bar necklace from Etsy which is engraved with my birth date. Once again super simple, but very cute! 

If you ever have the Monday blues just remember, got to look good to feel good! Happy Monday too all (:

Sneak peak

Prom season is right around the corner! Which means the joy and stress of prom dress shopping has come. With all the options out there it is hard to not get overwhelmed, my advice to you is go into the process with an idea of what you want (a picture is always helpful), and be willing to try on dresses that you may not think look so great on the hanger, because often times they look completely different on. Most importantly Get a dress you love. Bottom line, if you aren't in love with it don't get it. You can always look somewhere else or go back to a store if things don't work out, but its your special night and you want to look and feel good, so make sure its what you want.

And of course there is always the concern of someone getting the same dress, a similar color, or a similar style. So the best advice I can give is to start a Facebook page, or create some form of social media page where everyone posts pictures of their prom dresses. Also more importantly show all your friends so no one in your pictures ends up with the same dress, color etc. No girl wants to experience the surprise of twinning on prom day.

As for the rest of the details, make sure to schedule your hair and makeup appointments early, salons book up very quickly around this time of year, and the last thing you want is to not have beautiful hair and makeup to go with your stunning dress! If by chance you are still looking for a great place to get your hair and make up done and you live in the area, I highly recommend Vohana salon in Mystic CT, they rock! 

Above is a sneak peak of my prom dress for this years senior prom, take a look and feel free to let me know what you think of it (:

Stay tuned, to see the full dress and all the details

Lunch and Jack's

Yesterday while on my way to go look for a prom dress, my mom and I stopped for lunch at the cutest place ever! The Dog Watch Cafe in Stonnington Borough, CT. My mom dined on a scrumptious crab cake while I had a just as scrumptious, (if not better!), buffalo chicken flatbread. This quaint little restaurant was absolutely adorable and perfect for a quick lunch date. This little cafe also lies right on the water, could it get any better!? Lunch and a harbor view.

While out and about yesterday I sported my new champagne Lauren Jack Rogers. They're super comfy, and of course super stylish! With all this spring weather lately I felt it was definitely time to break out the sandals, and what better way to celebrate this spring weather than with some Jacks!? Duhhh! There is no other way! 

Stay tuned for a sneak peak of my prom dress...

I could get use to this

I could most definitely get use to this life. Its spring break here in Waterford, which means I have to find some way to fill up my days! The weather here the past couple of days has been beautiful! Perfect for a little morning run on the new boardwalk. So today I went for a four mile run on the Niantic boardwalk then cooled down with a protein shake from my favorite little bakery, Cafe NV. My shake was oh so delicious, made with strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, kale, vanilla protein powder and honey. Yum yum yum!

And of course I don't just go for a run without picking out a fun running outfit. Today I wore my favorite Nike cutoff, with a black Nike sports bra peeping through to match, along with some funky Puma leggings from Marshalls (they were a total steal!) and last, but not least my newest addition to the sneaker fam, my white and black Nike Lunar Glides.

Go out and enjoy the lovely spring weather! Happy Tuesday to all!

What a day

What an eventful day, starting spring break off with a bang!  A trip to the city and a promposal all in one day! Yes you heard right I got promposed to in NYC, Time Square to be exact! Jake knows me too well! It was a great surprise and I got to spend the day in my favorite city, with some of my best friends and chow down on some delicious NYC food, what more could I ask for!?

We ate at HB Burgers, and of course how could I go to a burger joint and not get a burger and fries? But on top of that I got to have some home brewed orange cream soda and the worlds smallest sundae! Yum! Then we headed over to Sedutto for some not so tiny ice cream cones. Double yum! I got raspberry sorbet and cherry vanilla in a waffle cone. What a good looking ice cream that was, and good tasting to boot! And of course I couldn't wander to the city and not wear a stylish outfit. This outfit is simple and comfy. A graphic T-shirt from Forever 21 (lent to me by my amazing friend Shea), a light jacket from H&M, a pair of cut off frayed jeans from Forever 21, Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses and of course my favorite, my Adidas superstar sneakers.

My frayed cut off jeans are a must have! They are totally in style right now and they are super cute and can be styled in so many ways (I even ordered myself a second pair of them from express, I am waiting on their arrival!). And my Adidas sneakers are perfect for a day in the city where there is lots of walking involved. These sneaks are crazy comfy and super stylish. Also add a little fun to an outfit by layering necklaces for a simple but stylish look, it adds just enough but not too much!

NYC never fails to impress. What an amazing day in the city. Looking for a fun and simple day trip, NYC is the place to go. There are endless things to do and see and lots of great food to eat. I am in the city often so keep on the lookout for more NYC fun, food and fashion! (;

Sassy in maroon

I would never pass up a chance to wear maroon lipstick, or lipstick in general for that matter! Thats why I'm loving this outfit! A maroon shirt and a tan cardigan from Forever 21, paired with white jeans from J Crew and a simple pair of black suede wedges, also from Forever 21. A little maroon can go a long way, it brings so much sass to the outfit. I love it! And as much as I love this cardigan I can not wait for the spring wheather to be in full force, my closet is begging me to break out my spring clothes, layers are so last season! (; Stay warm! 

                     Xoxo Kenz

A pop of pink

How can one go wrong with pink, bows, and stripes? Exactly you can't! 

I am obsessed with these pink heels and their over sized bows, they add a super cute flare to any outfit and are a real eye catcher I paired these shoes with one of my favorites, a pleated and stripped skirts from Chicwish, a jean shirt and a necklace from J Crew. This outfit just screams, CUTE!! 

Keep your eyes out for more featured outfits with these styling hot pink shoes, because trust me these babies will be making many more appearances on the blog! Happy Tuesday shoesday ;)

Monday (navy) blues

Nothing says Monday like navy blue, and a pop of red to start off the week! This navy red and white outfit is a personal favorite! I love its semi casual yet classy look but most of all I love that it is comfortable! Because who doesn't love a cute and comfortable outfit!? My Skirt, shirt and vest are all from J crew, paired with a red rose necklace and the newest members of my wardrobe, my champagne, Lauren, Jack Rogers. I hope you all love this outfit as much as I do!

I'm sporting a comfy orange romper today from H&M along with a few of my favorite accessories! Lace up flats from Old Navy, and a black and grey cheetah scarf (because who doesn't love a good piece of cheetah print clothing!?) and let me just tell you I LOVE loVe LoVe my round  sunglasses from Free People, they are a go accessory for spicing up any outfit! 

Hopefully this weekend brings some nicer weather! Stay warm and stay tuned for more (hopefully spring) outfits!

Has spring really sprung?

Today we have one of my favorite go to outfits! 

This jean romper from my favorite little, local store, Grace, is perfect for those cool spring days when it is just warm enough to show a little skin (Although with the weather here in Connecticut lately I'm not sure how much use I will be getting out of this outfit this spring). Dress it down and stay comfy by adding a pair of low top white converse to the outfit and you have yourself a simple, cute outfit to get you through your day. Sometimes simple is better!

If you're looking to check out Grace, which you most definitely should! Head on over to Niantic Connecticut. Grace is located at 46 Pennsylvania Ave, Niantic Connecticut 06357. This quaint little store is perfect for all your fashion needs, always keeping in stock the latest trends from top retail stores.
