Flowy & Carefree in Italy

I am still on a high from my trip to Italy.  It was amazing and I was happy to spend time with my family & friends while vacationing there.  We started in Rome and made our way to Southern Italy, where I fell in love with the Amalfi Coast (Sorrento, Isla de Capri, Positano).  Then, we made our way to Verona, Venice, Lake Maggiore, Lake Como, and Florence.  Each Italian region has it’s own culture and food and I found myself falling in love with the Amalfi lemons (lemoncello is delicious) and Tuscan Chianti.

My Italia fashion was comfortable and chic so I wore loose, flowy dresses with layers and of course, accessorized everyday. 🙂 Guess sent me this amazing Exotic sport’s watch that was perfect for such an exotic trip! Shop the look here.

Have you been to Italy?  What other countries have you visited?  This was my first European vacation and something tells me I will be going back in no time!

Stella & Dot Giveaway!

Hey, ladies!  Candy Stilettos partnered up with Stella & Dot to give away this amazing Guilded Arrow Bangle.  I wore it to a night out in Newport, RI with my fabulous Forever 21 romper.  It was the perfect accessory.

To enter you must be a Facebook fan of Candy Stiletto AND Stella&Dot-Lauren Vicente!





Leather & Color

The classic black leather jacket is staple in most women’s closet. In a attempt to look more chic rather than like a chick that just came off the back of a motorcycle, I paired my Express cropped leather jacket with some skinny jeans, a hot pink crossbody bag and some ultra-glam accessories. My black glitter watch c/o Guess brings this edgy look together.

Old Accessories, New Looks

I have been away for a couple days because we moved into our new house!  We are so excited for our new home and our first house together as a married couple.  You will see a lot more decorating posts as we furnish and make the house our own.  Any DIY ideas or great furniture sales, please so share! xoxo.

The part that was most fun about moving was really unpacking and organizing my things the way I want them to be organized.  Since we had such a small space, it was hard to organize my clothes and accessories.  I stumbled across pieces that I totally forgot I had so I figured I’d share these little gems!

Happy ♥ Day

Hope everyone has a fabulous Valentine’s Day.  Tonight I am going to make a fabulous dinner (I am avoiding restaurants on V-day due to obvious reasons) and just enjoy a night in with some great food & wine.
