Heyyy y'all! Remember me!? If y'all don't, or maybe you're new here (if so, welcome!) let me refresh you: Born and raised by the ocean in small town in CT, a coastal New Englander since birth, my heart beats to the ocean waves. When it comes down to it I am a feisty Leo, sweets junkie (give me the ice cream and dark choco!) and a flamingo lover, more of a flamingo obsessor I’d say! But, one thing's for sure you can always find me in the gym, most often my CrossFit box or on a run. I claim to be someone who is on time, but truth be told I am always running a few minutes late, time management is not my best quality, fashionably late? Yup thats me! But one things for sure, I leave a little sparkle where ever I go because I truly believe pink and glitter are the most magical.
I am so SUPER extra excited to be back, with a brand new site for y'all to enjoy. Thanks to a lovely friend of mine, Madison Terry, I have been able to give Love & Labels a whole new look. Her work is truly amazing and I highly recommend using her for any and all things graphic design. This pretty lady is a wizard with the graphics! xx
On the topic of new, I've got new content planned for y'all which includes many many more outfits coming your way. My main platform has always been instagram, the gram is where it is at for me, but since I have jazzed up the blog my hope is to bring y'all some great new content and blog posts much more often! With that being said as much as this is my space to share the things I love, I would love to hear from you guys! Send me a message on instagram or email me with anything you would like to see on the blog or instagram in the future!
The look: you can shop my look from this post below by simply clicking the pictures! I had to link a few similar shirts because this shirt is from a few years ago and I could not link the exact piece, which happens to be from Old Navy! I also had to do the same with my earrings which are from Grace Store, a local boutique. I found this look to be very fitting for my first post back and hope y'all enjoy! I am a big graphic tee fan for everyday wear, they are cute, easy and comfortable to cover all the bases. These Steve Madden, Hermes dupes are one of my favorite shoes of the summer. I have not stopped wearing them and the straw bag trend was something I could not resist, it adds the perfect, casual, beach-y summer look to a simple outfit like this. My belt is also a dupe, got to love a good faux item! This item is currently sold out and I do not want to link anything unreliable, but it happens to be from Amazon so keep an eye out, use the amazon link I linked on the word Amazon to be directed to the same brand as my dupe Gucci belt seen in the pictures above.
I started this blog back in 2013! Can you believe it!? While I have come a long way I still have a ways to go, this has been my outlet something that has brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined. I have had so much fun styling outfits, creating posts, gramming my most loved looks, chatting with fellow bloggers, making new friends and much much more. I have faced so much criticism along the way, but I have come to find much more support and that outweighs the haters any day. There is nothing more rewarding than enjoying what you do and this little side hustle is my love! A big thank you to all my loves who have followed along from the start and a warm welcome to all the new loves joining in! Cheers to many more, years of Love & Labels.
