Celebrate Prom Season With Macy's

“This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.“






It's been years since I graduated high school, but I can still remember shopping for my prom dress and accessories. I remember the adrenaline induced shopping trips, looking to find the perfect color, cut and fit. For me, my senior prom was a big deal, it was part of celebrating my high school experience and to create a beautiful memory with my dress. I wanted a beautiful dress to be part of that memory.

This year one of my younger cousins will be attending her senior prom and I am super excited for her. I can only imagine how excited she must be thinking about prom, her dress, the shoes, the accessories! Whether you, your daughter, friend or family member will be going to prom this year, Macy's is hosting a fashion show and shopping party featuring some of the hottest prom dresses and accessories. New York, let's celebrate the prom season together at Macy's Herald Square's own prom fashion show and shopping party. The event will take place on Saturday, March 26th at 2pm in the Juniors Dept. ONE BELOW.  The first 150 customers who check in will score VIP access to meet YouTube singing sensation Andie Case after a live performance. There will also be mini makeovers, photo fun and more!!!!  See you there! You can find out more about Macy's prom events by clicking the link here

Spring Transition Pieces

Spring Transition Pieces



I am looking forward to wearing less layers and lighter items as the weather begins to warm up. This chic cream vest is the perfect spring layering piece over a pretty top or a sweater. I love the ultra feminine feel of these blush pink heels and can see myself pairing them with my work skirts and dresses or jeans on the weekends. I've been craving style and utility when it comes to bags. This Madewell backpack is a Spring must have for me. It's easy to carry and is big enough to fit my everyday items plus more (books, ipad, etc.) Find the rest of my Spring transition pieces by clicking the links below:
