Even though it’s only mid-August, before you know, fall will be approaching us. Buying new clothes is always difficult when transitioning from one season to another.
When transitioning from summer to fall, cut-off jeans have always been a go-to for me. The Hudson jeans I’m wearing are amazing for this time period. I actually wore these very frequently when transitioning from spring to summer. They’re trendy and super easy to pair with almost anything. If it’s a cooler day, pair them with a cozy or light weight sweater. If it’s warmer, throw on a cute t-shirt with them. I’ve worn these so much, and I’ll continue to wear them into the fall season.
The sweater I’m wearing is by Cupcakes and Cashmere. I’ve worn this recently on cool summer nights, and again, I’ll continue wearing it into the fall and winter seasons. On a side note, it’s currently 40% off at Bigleys (for a limited time only), which is such a steal! It’s stylish, cozy, and a staple peice that you literally can’t go wrong with!
I accessorized this look with stark white pieces, to add a nice, bright summer flare. Statement sneakers really make this look pop.

I’m pretty sure 90% of the blog posts I’ve done this summer have consisted of dresses, but I can’t help it! Dresses have literally been allll I’ve been wearing lately! However, I’ve been showing you guys my absolute favourites, and I have to add this one to the list!
This dress is by the same designer as a couple of the recent dresses I’ve wrote about- Parker. I wasn’t kidding when I said I stalked up on Parker dresses. They’ve definitely played a major part in my summer wardrobe.
I love how Parker dresses are super stylish and trendy, yet youthful at the same time. They always add so much detail to each garment. This one in particular has the ruffle detail at the top, and black embroidery throughout the top and bottom. The white pin-stripe also makes it a classic.
Here’s the most exciting part of this whole blog post- PARKER IS CURRENTLY 50% OFF AT BIGLEY’S!! How could you possibly go wrong?!
The hat I’m wearing is available at Bigleys Beach House, and is currently 10% off. It’s such a cute touch. The shoes I’m wearing are by Michael Kors. There’s only a few sizes left, however they’re currently 30% off at Bigleys, and they also come in a cognac colour.

My mom and I recently went to the Miami Swim Show to do the Spring/2018 buy for Bigley’s Beach House. We decided to stay at the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort. I’ve been there to eat and hang out by the pool a couple times before, however this was the first time I had the opportunity to actually stay there. We stayed there for four nights, and it was absolute paradise.
I’m currently in the process of my planning my wedding, and my fiancé and I both liked the idea of having it at Margaritaville. Therefore, my mom and I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to meet with the wedding planner and check out the venue. To say I fell in love is an understatement.
Margaritaville is inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of singer/songwriter, Jimmy Buffet. It’s an extremely “chill” atmosphere, surrounded by island vibes. The decor and design of the resort is absolutely stunning. When I explain it to people I use the phrase “coastal chic”. I can’t even put into words how impressive the detail was that they put into every little thing. Not to mention how friendly and helpful all of the employees were. I was truly amazed. My fiancées dad is actually the executive chef there, and he went above and beyond to make our stay one that we will definitely never forget.
Considering the majority of our guests will be travelling from up north, we wanted to find a venue that would provide them with lots to do, as most people will be making a vacation out of it. Margaritaville is not only located right on Hollywood Beach, (in Hollywood, Florida), the intercoastal waterway is directly across the street. There are five different restaurants located right at the resort (the food is AMAZING), and numerous more just a short walk away, along the Hollywood boardwalk. They also provide a huge variety of entertainment. Not only do they have multiple pools to hang out at (even one with a water slide 😋), they often have live bands playing at various locations throughout the resort. On top of that, they have a FlowRider surfing simulator (which is awesome for kids), and stand up paddle board and jetski rentals! There’s literally always something to do there, and its in a very central location, making it very convenient to explore the area.
I truly had the most amazing experience there. Needless to say, we WILL be having our wedding there, and I’m so excited to officially start the planning.
