The 150th Belmont Stakes


Witnessing Triple Crown History

Citrus Summer Soirée 

I hosted a little summer citrus themed gathering with a few of my girlfriends and of course had to dress the part! I found this little number while insta-stalking one of my favorite Victoria’s Secret models (s/o to Romee!). The dress is Michael Kors and the color is called “Mandarin”. I wasn’t quite sure I would be able to pull the color off with my red hair but I really love how bright and cheery it is! Even if I … Read More
