Beauty Buys: The Best Black Nail Polish by Sally Hansen!


If you’re looking for a stylish & no-fuss way to incorporate some Halloween glam into your everyday look, my best recommendation would be to find some black nail polish. Of course, a glittery black is fabulous, but a classic matte black polish goes a long way!

Sally Hansen is one of my favorite nail polish brands for their affordable prices, variety of hues, & durability!

SHOP: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in black out @Target ($2.99).

Beauty Buys: Sally Hansen’s New Miracle Gel Nail Polish Inspiration by Netflix’s The School for Good & Evil!


When it comes to nail polish, I’m pretty committed to metal hues on the regular, such as rose gold, copper, gold, silver, & bronze; however, I do love a metallic finish for other colors, such as purple, blue, green, pink, black, & white. Just in time for the spooky Halloween season, Netflix’s The School for Good & Evil has inspired Sally Hansen’s new line of beautiful miracle gel nail polishes.

SHOP: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel x The School for Good & Evil Nail Polish in True Beauty Comes from Within, The Storian, Lovey Dovey, Good is Great, Fresh Villany, It’s Better Being Bad, Magic Mirror, & Color Lesson Go @Target ($8.29).

The film, streaming on October 21st, features an all-star cast that includes, High School Musical: The Series star Sofia Wylie and newcomer Sophia Anne Caruso, along with Cate Blanchett, Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Michelle Yeoh, Laurence Fishburne, Patti Lupone, Rachel Bloom, & more!

SHOP NOW!: The Perfect Cami for Work & the Holidays!


All year long, I keep my short sleeve & sleeveless tops & camis handy so that I can break them out when needed. These instances may be to pair with a heavy, printed, or embellished cardigan,, along with trousers, a pencil skirt, a midi skirt, or skinny jeans. A cami doesn’t have to be boring, though a classic white cotton one is a staple investment for sweater season. However, a cami with shine? Oh yes!

SHOP: A New Day v-neck cami in black or copper @Target ($20.00, available in sizes XS-4XL).

I love the possibilities of this for fall looks, coordinating the black sequin top with burgundy velvet pants & a mustard cardigan, as well as the copper with some leopard print & gold accessories. Both options are also prime for the upcoming holiday season too!

How would you style these camis? Would you try a cami with sparkle or do you prefer something simple? What are your favorite work-to-holiday transitional items?

SHOP NOW!: Fuzzy Slippers + 40% Off!


There are some accessories or around-the-house pieces I was always rely on until I just can’t wear them anymore. That definitely applies to slippers. In our high ranch house, since we live most of the time upstairs, I keep a pair in the bedroom for early, chilly mornings & when getting ready for bed. Likewise, I have another pair in my cloffice downstairs for work-from-home days & playing with my daughter in our family room. This is convenient, so that no matter where I am, I have slippers to stay cozy.

However, now that Target has a major 40% off deal happening right now on slippers, I might just have to freshen up my options, especially for post-shower primping when I don’t necessarily want my feet to be all covered up.

SHOP: Stars Above Annika single band fur slide slipper in tan, purple, & blush @Target (on sale: $10.80, available in sizes S-XL).

I love the purple the most, which is a stark contrast to the grey & ivory styles I typically flock to. What do you think of these slippers? Did you like fuzzy, furry styles in pastel colors? How much do you spend on slippers? For more stylish posts, check out: Halloween bling by SUGARFIX by BaubleBar, peplum tops from Amazon, & a faux leather midi dress for all! Happy Styling!

Accessories Access: Halloween Bling!


I don’t wear much in the way of literal festive jewelry, save some snowflake, gift bow, or bunny earrings, but in recent years, I’ve been including my four-year-old in my style journey. I love her input on accessories & appealing to her festive interests for any season or holiday. This fall & Halloween, while I haven’t yet invested in any spooky sparkles, I have my eye on the gorgeously glittery pieces from SUGARFIX by BaubleBar @Target:

SHOP: SUGARFIX by BaubleBar Squash the Competition Statement Halloween Earrings ($12.99), Corny Confections Statement Halloween Earrings ($12.99), Bone to be Wild Statement Halloween Earrings ($12.99), & Ghostess with the Mostess Statement Halloween Earrings ($12.99) @Target.

SHOP NOW!: Cozy Fleece Separates for Weekend & Loungewear!


Throughout the pandemic, I’ve not only reevaluated my wardrobe needs, but also embraced the possibilities of loungewear. Now, I appreciate matching separates for not only their colors & textures, but also for the ease of the preassembled outfit for cozy indoor days. Even though my collection of about 6 2-piece matching pjs are more than enough, I still have my eye out for newer styles, especially in the hopes of wearing them on chilly rainy fall days ahead!

SHOP: Stars Above cozy fleece lounge swearshirt in berry red, green, almond, & charcoal grey @Target ($20.00, available in sizes XS-XXL) & Stars Above cozy fleece lounge jogger pants in berry red, green, almond, & charcoal gray @Target ($20.00, available in sizes XS-XXL).

Joggers are so on trend right now & I love the rich, jewel tones to enjoy wearing this fall & into the holiday season. How would you style these piece of wearing them separately? Do you shop Stars Above loungewear? Do you frequent wear matching pajama sets?

Accessories Access: The Most Unbe-Leaf-ably Stylish Fall Earrings for $14.99!


I was never usually one to normally collect kitschy themed accessories for holidays or seasons until I had my daughter. Now, I let her pick out my accessories through playing games & matching colors, almost as if outfit prepping for the week is a sparkly scavenger hunt. However, now that I’m full on fruits for summer & have plenty of bows & snowflakes for winter—not to mention all the flowers & bees for spring—it’s time to pay homage to fall. I have some leaf studs & charm or pendant necklaces, but they’re all very neutral in gold or antique gold. None are literally celebrating the autumn season… until now!

SUGARFIX by BaubleBar’s ‘Be-Leaf in Yourself’ earrings ($14.99) @Target are just what I need (& any fall-obsessed Style Darling) to kick off the season shift this week!

The pairing of maple leaves with an ombré stone effect are stylish for the office or classroom, but also offer enough bling for cocktail or special occasions. The gold & rust hues will pair well with earth tones offset against navy, denim, gray, or burgundy.

SHOP NOW!: Sweater Season is Upon Us!


Even though the weather (here on Long Island) is teetering between summer & fall with summer heat still palpable, it’s sweater season in stores! Now is the best time to get the newest colors & cuts in woven wonders, especially if your fall wardrobe needs a refresh. A classic item to have handy for any rotation of fall outfits is a v-neck sweater in either bright or neutral colors—because, as I always say, the possibilities are endless!

SHOP: A New Day fine gauge v-neck sweater in black, dark brown, dark grey, green, magenta, navy blue, oatmeal, cream or light grey @Target ($22.00, available in sizes XS-4X).

I can definitely envision myself getting the green, magenta, & navy, especially to coordinate with a statement necklace & my favorite A New Day pants, leggings & knee boots, skinny jeans & ankle booties, or a pencil skirt & pointy flats for any given fall day! The neutral tones cry out for a bold or jewel-toned companion piece & the brighter colors would match well with any menswear-inspired trouser or juxtaposed texture in lace or jacquard.

How would you style these sweaters? Which color is your favorite? Do you prefer a scoop or v-neck for sweaters? Are you breaking out your fall wardrobe already?

Living in Style: More Jewelry Organization Ideas!


During my recent escapade into the world of home organization—mainly for my cloffice & bedroom wardrobe space—I made an investment in pieces & fixtures to house my accessories collection. Although, my ambition was larger than it should have been since finally unpacking my duds & getting my sparkly style ducks in a row. Additionally, my favorite storage piece to keep in my bedroom for quick access to my most favorite & precious long strand necklaces & chain bracelets doesn’t even look like a typical organizer or jewelry box, which is exactly why I love it!

I purchased 2 of the eForCity 4-layer jewelry storage organizer from @Target (was $21.99), wanting to order 2 more, but by the time I found use for them, they were out of stock. However, I was able to find an identical piece from Amazon: the HengLiSam 4-layer rotatable jewelry accessory storage trays in white (on sale: $9.99), which are also made in black & pink for $10.99 each.

I decided to keep them in my bedroom for quick access, especially on a weekend when I don’t usually plan my outfits ahead of time, so that I could grab a staple long necklace & bracelet if a day of errands turned into family dropping by or going out to eat. Most pieces in each organizer are either neutral / all-purpose jewelry that would go with basically anything or something so special & treasured I want it handy right away. See below how it all turned out:

This is what it looks like closed!
They’re atop another duo of jewelry organizers & even though they’re a stark white against the ivory & beige tones of the bedroom, they’re so compact & useful, I actually don’t mind.

Would you use a jewelry storage piece such as this? Do you prefer a classic look to your jewelry boxes or something more modern & minimalist? How much of your accessories do you keep “out” & available on the regular? For more stylish posts, check out: a feminine & faux leather midi dress from Walmart, comfy & colorful tunic tops for fall, black patterned tights in various designs from Target, & my top houndstooth picks from New York & Company!

Accessories Access: Stylish Patterned Tights for Fall for Under $10!


I’m still all about summer right now, but the new fall fashions are everywhere. As I’ve been sorting & organizing my wardrobe to prepare for the upcoming fall semester, I find myself in need of a hosiery refresh, which is just in time to catch the last days of Target’s 30% off Clothing, Accessories, & Shoes discount through the Target app, which expires on Sat 8/20. I’ve hit add-to-cart on a bunch of black patterned tights by A New Day to keep my legs protected when the temperature drops, but my style high with a variety of prints to go with any outfit.

Try florals against solid separates or when colorblocking. Perhaps, going with menswear inspiration or something geometric would contrast a polka dot or brocade look for fall. Also, there’s animal print to consider which would highlight the dichotomy of edgy & soft when playing up an unexpected neon look for fall!

SHOP: A New Day tights available in sizes S-2XL in rose garden (on sale: $8.50), tile (on sale: $8.50), leopard ($10.00), viney floral ($10.00), polka dot (10.00), floral back ($10.00), airy floral ($10.00), & basket weave ($10.00).

As much as I love a black opaque tight for an extra busy look, I do recommend other solid colors & depths of opacity, depending on your style. With the extra 30% off, this is a deal on hosiery must-haves that you can’t pass up! Which pattern of tight is your favorite to wear? Where are you shopping for fall refresher items?

SHOP NOW!: The Best Summer-To-Fall Pants for Work & Play from Target!


During a recent black hole viewing of Instagram stories (I’m not the only one, am I?), I came across a blogger sharing their interpretation for summer-to-fall teacher outfits, including A New Day’s high-rise slim straight pull-on pants @Target ($25.00, available in sizes XS-4X). There are 2 qualities about these pants that I loved right away: 1. They’re pull-on. Ever since I’ve had my daughter, pants with zippers are the enemy & pull-on pants are my loyal subjects! 2. They’re available in 8 neutral, professional colors / patterns.

The variety includes navy (windowpane), black pinstriped, gray (plaid), gray (& black/purple houndstooth), cream, green, brown, & black. So far, I’ve ordered all, except the black because they weren’t available in my size, & I’ve received the navy & gray houndstooth. They’re very comfortable & run true to size. I love the length (being that I’m 5’3″).

For a professional day, they will pair nicely with a blouse-cardigan-ballet flat combination or a short sleeve sweater & statement necklace with mule heels. I’d love to style these pants for more than just work though. When headed somewhere more casual, I can see pairing the solid options with a dolman top & sandals or a printed tee & wedges. As always, the possibilities are endless! Check out some options by A New Day sold @Target below:

SHOP: short sleeve scoop neck t-shirt in dark pink ($5.00, available in sizes XS-XXL & 6 colors, shop plus here), raglan long sleeve tie-front top in black ($20.00, available in sizes XS-XXL & 9 colors / patterns, shop plus here), polo sweater in cream ($25.00, available in sizes XS-XXL & 4 colors), puff short sleeve v-neck top in brown ($18.00, available in sizes XS-XXL & 5 colors, shop plus here), dolman short sleeve plisse top in green ($18.00, available in sizes XS-XXL & 4 colors, shop plus here), & flutter sleeve tank top in green (on sale: $17.00, available in sizes XS-XXL & 7 colors, shop plus here).

Lastly, an outfit isn’t complete without some stylish (& affordable shoes). Target really knows what they’re doing when it comes to products in the line for A New Day as so many neutral pieces can be coordinated, especially with the pants:

SHOP: Millie twin gore slip-on sneakers in green ($14.99, available in sizes 5-12, wide width options, 6 colors), Thea mules in black ($19.99, available in sizes 5-12), Sue heels in blush ($29.99, available in sizes 5-12 & 2 colors), Corinna ballet flats in mahogany ($14.99, available in sizes 5-12, wide width options, 6 colors), Danica platform loafers in off-white ($32.99, available in sizes 5-12, wide width options, 2 colors), & Kiki mules in cognac ($29.99, available in sizes 5-12 & 3 colors).

Do you shop Target’s A New Day collection? What kind of pants do you wear to work? Do you prefer a pull-on pant or pants with a zipper? How would you style any of these separates?

08/06/2022 Darling of the Day: Selena Gomez’s Glitzy Orange Sequin Set by LaPointe!


Maybe between Only Murders in the Building & Selena + Chef, I have a little girl crush on Selena Gomez, but who doesn’t? Really? The 30-year-old star continues to celebrate her glamorous arrival into the next chapter of her life while in Italy with rumored beau Andrea Iervolino, making a stylish & sparkling statement in a LaPointe orange sequin tank (shop here) & coordinating Bermuda shorts (shop here).

The look is glamorous, unapologetic, mature, & timeless for a young woman living it up in Capri, a celebrity hotspot as of late, & shopping at YSL. Additionally, the actress’s look includes slide heels (shop similar here), drop earrings (shop similar here), & Vintage Frames sunglasses (shop similar here).

However, finding an affordable & comparable look inspired by these LaPointe pieces is somewhat difficult (try Poshmark or Mercari for similar separates too), but if a shoulder-to-knee sequins may be a bit much for you, think about coordinating the sparkle with satin for a luxurious & comfortable outfit. I’ve selected the pieces below for inspiration, even though an orange set is hard to find for a budget. Also, keep scrolling for suggested accessories too!

About 15 years ago, I would’ve totally donned a look like this—which is not to say that it’s out of style; it’s just not my personal aesthetic. I can still appreciate it & applaud Selena’s fashion choices when it comes to neon hues & unexpected glam! When on vacation, it’s fun to express a different side of yourself to explore a new city or open yourself up to someone knew, all through style! What do you think of Selena’s outfit? Would you wear all-over sequins in a matching set like this? Is orange a color you gravitate towards for summer?

Living in Style: Stackable & Sophisticated Jewelry Trays from Target!


As Mission: Get Organized continues, I feel like I’ve accomplished so much, but still have a long way to go; however, I haven’t lost my motivation. Having a reliable, stylish system is key to maintaining home organization in my cloffice & it’s of the utmost importance for my ample fashion jewelry collection that I’ve gifted myself during my years as a blogger, in retail, & as a stylist.

Specifically, I have made efficient use of the Household Essentials 3pc stacking jewelry trays in seafoam @Target (on sale: $34.41), which are also available in graphite linen (on sale: $31.86) & black linen ($33.56).

Months ago, I purchased 2 of these online, not quite knowing how I’d use them since I already have a few other stacking trays & jewelry boxes, but I knew I’d need plenty of options. While the trays can store all types of jewelry in varying sizes, I selected only shorter pendant necklaces & drop earrings—although I have 2 more sets of trays on the way, which was an even sweeter deal after Target’s $10 off $50 Circle offer! I love the bright color, which matches perfectly with my cloffice, along with the soft linen fabric!

I appreciate how everything can be seen in each layer & once I can see all of my jewelry, I’ll create a better system in storing by metal (gold tone, silver tone, or rose tone) or bead color, along with type of earring (chandelier, beaded, dangle, threaders, etc.) or if a pair has multiples in different colors, which will be helpful when I know I want a certain type of earring or necklace in a specific metal.

For the final image, I’m unsure how I’ll use the ring space since I’d like to keep this tray solely for necklaces, but perhaps once I recover all of my necklace extenders, I’ll be able to keep them here as well.

Accessories Access: Earrings Sets for Vacation!


When considering accessories for vacation, I keep it super minimal, especially since it’s a hot summer week & I’m vacationing with a toddler to toddler-friendly places. That’s not to say I can’t do it in style, but I bring 2 bags, a few neutral sandals, 1 hat, 1 pair of sunglasses, & the most neutral earrings sets. The only other jewelry I wear is my wedding ring. We’re not planning on any fancy dining, so I just keep it mom-chic. Since we’re away for only 4 days & I have 5 piercings in each ear, I typically stack up on the earrings to avoid the discomfort of a necklace or bracelet on my skin.

Some favorite sets to rely on for chic, downplayed accessories style include these picks below from A New Day @Target:

SHOP: A New Day pavé hoop & charm hoop 8-piece earring set @Target ($14.99).

SHOP: A New Day crystal glass stud & small hoop 8-piece earring set @Target ($14.99).

SHOP: A New Day charm hoop, stud, & ear climber 8-piece earring set @Target ($14.99).

Living in Style: A Sneak Peek into My Cloffice + Statement Necklace Displays!


Every time I search the web for blog inspiration, especially when it comes to affordable fashion jewelry buys, I am boggled by the fact that statement necklaces, circa 2010-2020, are not as prominently available as they used to be. However, my jewelry collection is certainly not lacking, but I can’t help it that I like shiny, sparkly bling!

Also, as I am finally able to have the chance to unpack—in my contemplative, soul-cleansing solitude—& organize my wardrobe collection in our spare bedroom, which I call my “cloffice,” I am finally unveiling all those packages that I ordered in the last two years since moving into my family’s first home together.

With my statement necklaces in mind, & the fact that if I don’t see an accessories option readily available invisible to me, I don’t wear it, I ordered 3 Juvale Grey Jewelry Display Stand / Headband Holder / Headpieces Showcase Organizer @Target (on sale: $18.99), sold by eForCity.

Now, nothing against headbands—which I don’t wear—but I wanted a way to display my statement necklaces in all of their sparkly glory. I ordered 3, not knowing exactly how many I needed, nor did I consider how much space the stands would take up as I began to sort through my jewelry. While I am only somewhat embarrassed to share that what is displayed below is a mere fraction of my statement necklaces, I am considering investing in a few more stands once the proper shelving is available in my cloffice.

For now, I am happy that my statement necklaces are glistening & glimmering atop a nightstand that has been “fashioned” into a partial bookcase. Additionally, all of the statement necklace is pictured above are three years old or older from stores like Francesca’s, New York & Company, Dressbarn, JC Penney, Icing, & Forever 21; otherwise, I would share some links! Furthermore, stands are sturdy, soft to the touch, & easy to assemble in 3 separate pieces that can be arranged to your preference. If you are in the market to display your headbands or statement necklaces, I definitely recommend this item! What’s better is that it’s on clearance now too! Sharing this image & my affinity for statement jewelry is in no way meant to brag, as I am happiest in the fact that I can share all of accessories collection with my daughter when she’s older!

SHOP NOW: The Softest Pajama Pants (On Clearance)!


When it comes to sleepwear, I am so picky, it’s almost embarrassing. However, I am all about comfort & coverage, no matter the season. As I started to recognize how overworn much of my pajama bottoms & loungewear clothing were getting during the pandemic—I was working full-time from home for 15 months. I decided to make the investment in go-to bottoms, especially for the warmer nights when I still prefer my legs be covered up.

The always reliable & affordable Target brand, Stars Above, proved the right choice with the Beautifully Soft Cropped Pajama Pant & now, most of the selection is on clearance. I bought 2 black pair & 1 navy pair. Not only are they comfortable to sleep in & easy to care for, they also double as acceptable loungewear bottoms if you have to run out for an errand or two or are spending the weekend home doing light chores or enjoying family time.

The women’s XS-XL styles in gray, black, & navy are currently limited in availability (on sale: $14.44), but they can also be found in plus (1X-4X) in gray, black, & navy with limited availability ($16.99).
