I haven’t had the chance to attend a bachelorette party, since none of my close friends have gotten married yet, but I absolutely love the idea! And since fall weddings are actually a big thing nowadays, it’s most likely that a bunch of you guys will be having bachelorette parties to go to soon. And I’m inspired by the idea. I’ll take any reason to dress up for a girls’ weekend out. Of course, I like to go the more unconventional route with most things when it comes to fashion. Instead of the typical short party dress, how about something longer, darker and more dramatic? This month, I teamed up with Express to create my night on the town look. This Express dress is exactly what I have in mind for my future bachelorette parties. And it feels more fall to me than the typical party dress. Sleek, simple and striking. If I have to depend on a dress to keep me feeling party ready, the dress must be these three things. There’s something special about going minimal and monochromatic. Most of the time, the case is that less is definitely more.
Here is a NYFW roundup featuring my top favorite pieces from M Missoni. How beautiful are these glittering dresses and wide-leg pants? I’ve been a huge fan of M Missoni because of their love for color, intricate detailing, and flowing shapes. They’re great for layering. I’m all about putting a tee under a statement dress or simply tossing a dress over pants. CHIC. Let the prints and shapes do the talking.

One final recap from our Costa Rica trip earlier this year. I can’t believe that was almost 4 months ago! I still remember that trip like it happened yesterday though. What an amazing experience it was with my sister Dylana, our friend Kiara and her boyfriend Mike. We spent the first half of our time in Costa Rica staying at the Four Seasons Peninsula Papagayo. My favorite part of our stay there was the easy access to the beach and the unlimited opportunities to get adventurous in the water. We surfed, we paddle boarded, zip lined and jet skied our way through our part of Costa Rica. We went wild, and we got tan, and we danced to local music. It was such a freeing experience. But although we were adventurous most of the time we did get to relax for a little bit, too. Massages and some time at the hydro therapy spa. My body felt renewed. I wish I could go back and relive it all again. And again. And again.
