Labor Day Weekend: Bright Pink Shirtdress







Happy Sunday and long weekend! We're taking a mini wedding break (had my bff's wedding last weekend and my sisters wedding next weekend... phew!) and are in Reno for the Rib Cook-Off! Yum yum yum...! To be honest, I'm not that big on ribs, but my family is and this trip is becoming an annual tradition. 

This looks is a causal fun outfit because the loose shirt dress is comfortable and who doesnt love pink? I kept everything else simple with a black tote and black sandals. This outfit is perfect for a BBQ, going shopping, or to work. 

Hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend! :)

Triangl Bikini & Wrap Scarf



Just a quick hello and I hope everyone is having a great week so far! These photos were taken in Cairns, Australia when we went a few months ago. I've been very shy about posting these bikini photos... :)

Btw, I am LOVING Taylor Swift's new single, Shake It Off, I've been playing it over and over...! The video is so fun and the song is super catchy! Can't wait for her new 1989 album to come out!!

Almost Fall with GiGi New York








TGIF! We are one month away from Fall and I can't wait for a break from this hot weather! Don't get me wrong, I love warm sunny days, but this summer has been super dry and scorching hot! I just got back from NYC and feel as though I put on a few pounds. Besides working, all we did was eat, eat, and eat. Great food is everywhere in NYC and I'm already missing Shake Shack. They make the perfect burgers and have yummy milk shakes. If you are ever in NYC, I highly recommend that place!

In light of Fall, I have teamed up with GiGi New York to launch their Tori tote in wine. How stunning is this color and I love the size of this bag! I have the Taylor tote as well and that one is slightly smaller, but I personally prefer big bags because I like to carry my entire life inside. 

A few last things, I would like to wish one of my BFF's, Ashley happy 25th birthday! And congratulations to my other BFF, Christine because her big day is tomorrow!!!! Follow me on Instagram @connnietang for photos of her wedding. :) 

I hope you have an amazing weekend!

Red Crochet Lace Dress


Red is my favorite color for dresses. It is bold, bright, and fun. This dress is a perfect example of a fun and flirty dress that I adore. I love the thick lace material and the intricate print. I complimented this dress it with blue accessories for another pop of color and then finished it off with nude heels. 







Hope you have an amazing week!

Fairytale Floral Dress







 


Hi from NYC! I am here for a work trip (my day job as a web designer) and I am loving every minuet here! NYC is my all time favorite city because there is so much going on, amazing food at every corner, and gorgeous architecture. This is my second time visiting this beautifully busy city and can't wait to try new places, and of course my all time favorite place Shake Shack. :) I'll probably go there multiple times this trip. If you have any recommendations on places to visit, eat, or things to do, please let me know. 

As for this lovely outfit, I am swooning over this dress, I wore it last week when we went to a friend's wedding. I love the organza sheer layering and the delicate floral embroidery. This dress reminds me of dresses that princesses would wear in fairytale stories that I used to read as a child. I paired it with pink heels and clutch for a feminine look. Hope you like it and have an amazing day!

Pretty Fringe Skirt






How fun is this combo? I love combining bright blue and pink because not only do they compliment each other, the are super flirty and fun. Then add a fringe skirt and you have an outfit that is perfect for a girls night out! (or date night) :) I need to buy brighter lipstick, this pink one is the brightest pink I have and I have been wanting to try new ones. Let me know if there are any lipsticks you swear by! :)

Work Ready in Harem Pants








I've been seeing harem pants on a few of my favorite bloggers and decided to try them out for myself, and I actually really like them! They are like fancy adult sweats... :D super comfortable and when worn with heels, you look super tall. This look would be perfect for an interview, a day at work, or wear them with flats for a comfortable and casual weekend look. I went the minimal route when it came to my accessories and lets talk about this clutch! How pretty is this little thing, it is very similar to the Valentino Rockstud Flap Clutch and is only a tiny fraction of the price!

I'm heading to a wedding tonight and cannot wait to share my look with you very soon! 

I hope you have an amazing weekend!

p.s. CONGRATULATIONS Annie & Andrew to your new life together as Mr. & Mrs. <3
