Man-ic Mondays - Club Monaco

It's a favorite store of mine and their men's section doesn't dissapoint either.  With their e-commerce site going live just a few weeks ago, I thought I'd share some of my favorite essential men looks for Spring so you can shop with ease.

Club Monaco is classic pieces with a fashion forward creative twist.  Urban casual with great mixes of textures, prints and sophistication.  There's something here for everyone whether it's basics, a well tailored suit, or great accessories to pull everything together.

Also, if you're like me and you still use your student ID card to get the student discount at the movies, you can also use it here for 20% off your purchase. And you can even use it online, just follow the instructions here.

Plus One

I am honored when a friend asks me to be their plus one for weddings, events or a fro-yo run.  Basically, I like food and if I can get a free meal all while whipping out a fun dress, I'm in.

Happy Birthday My Style Vita!

Image courtesy of Luis Monteiro Photograhpy

I realized today after chatting with a few local bloggers that my blog is officially one year old!  I can't believe how much has changed in the last year of my life.  And My Style Vita was truly the starting point to those big changes.  Showing me that I could turn a passion into something and how that hard work will translate into everything that you do. 

Thank you to those of you who have supported my blog, listened to me blab about clothing, jewelry and outfits, I appreciate each and every one of you.

Patterns And Breaking The Rules

So maybe I didn't realize how short this skirt was until my boss said "short skirt!  Cute!" Crap.....

Turns out I can wear short skirts....or at least I haven't been sent to the principals office... wait, I mean HR's office.  My mom brought it to my attention that I have gotten in trouble for dress code since middle school and every subsequent year after that including corporate America years.  Not a good track record, actually for me I consider that a success.  Trouble maker...

Mint and Coral


FINALLY replaced my baggy old high waisted flared jeans.  It's about damn time.  Picked these up at Juicy Couture in NYC over the weekend while visiting family.  Thank goodness they are high waisted, the pants are holding in the gut.  I think I packed on several pounds after being on a pizza, bagel and rainbow cookie diet for 3 days straight.  Not sure what a rainbow cookie is?  They are the best cookie in the world, basically my childhood in two amazing bites.  See photo here.

Popsicles and Childhood Memories

While waiting for a table at my favorite brunch spot at West Egg a few Sunday's ago, the ice cream man drove by and a swoon of childhood memories came back to me.  One in particular, me chasing down a knife sharpening truck that looked, sounded and was shamelessly a replica of an ice cream truck all for a disappointment that this truck did not in fact serve ice cream. None the less, popsicles are a favorite frozen treat of mine and now that I can appreciate more sophisticated flavors, I can pretend they are an adult food.

I found some amazing and easy recipes that I'm dying to try.  And I won't be needing a fancy popsicle machine.  Loaf pans apparently are the perfect popsicle maker.  Genius!

Not Your Grandmas Pearls

I'm sure some of you would be thrilled to get the hand me down pearls from your Grandmother.  But this grandaughter is stoked about getting hand me down Escada necklaces.  Grandma's got serious style like I've mentioned before and I couldn't be more excited about wearing the family jewels.  Yes, in our family, family jewels are Escada necklaces.  Thanks G-Ma for the new accessories.

Crispy Bikini Love

I thank the former President of the Wakeboard Club at my college for this obsession (yes you read that correctly, wakeboard club, how I didn't appreciate this more in college? shame on me).  Lingerie inspired bikinis that are ever so flattering.  They are handmade in California so each one is always unique.  

The lace detailing  is super feminine which is one of my favorite details.  But the best feature ever on their suits is their scrunch butt that always makes your ass look ah-mazing. Another thing that I love about them are their models.  They do yearly contests to search for their next Crispy Bikini girl using their customers as their models.  Talk about customer appreciation!

Good Luck!

Bright Jeans and Bright Lipstick


I recently lost my favorite orange Revlon lipstick, yes the name of the color was orange... But luckily I found this great new one during another Target fiasco. And I've officially downgraded from the big box of Junior Mints, to the smaller 79 cents one.  I call that a major accomplishment.  And now I consider it diet friendly.And don't forget to enter the 191 Unlimited contest HERE and the Morgan Prather Giveaway HERE.

Perfect Dresses




 Something about throwing on a perfect dress makes everything that much easier.  Don't have to worry about matching your top to your bottoms, tucking anything in, you just throw it on and go.  These are my favorite dresses for Spring and Summer.  They are so versatile and can be dressed up or down with the right blazer, denim jacket, shoes and accessories.  Get the most of your dresses by wearing them as a shirt or a skirt, adding a fitted white tee or a maxi skirt gets you extra mileage with your closet.

Crisp White

The luxury of a white shirt is being able to wear any of your crazy ass shoes that you can't seem to find a good time or place to wear them.  Purple suede stilettos are perfect for a Tuesday.  Also perfect for a Tuesday, Dunkin Donuts.  Shoes and donuts.  Perfect for any day really.

Good Luck!
