Mother’s day is around the corner, and we should celebrate all the mommas in our life! Every year, I am always in search of the perfect gift for my mom. She has such amazing taste and has definitely some fantastic items already in her closet. My go-to is always Nordstrom. They have a range of items for anyone’s likes and needs. Below are a few items from their site that I felt were perfect options for any and every mom out there.
1. Kate Spade New York Mom Knows Best Pave Charm Necklace
2. Home is Where Mom Is Accents Pillow
3. Voluspa Embossed Glass Chawan Bowl Candle
4. Sweet Dreams Short Robe
5. Embroidered Cotton Tee
6. Baublebar Gabriela Fringe Earrings
7. Kate Spade New York Thompson Street- Sam Fabric Handbag
8. Anastasia of Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette
9. Tory Burch Thin Flip Flop
Since it’s spring, I leaned toward pastels, florals, and soft elegance. My favorite is the floral robe. My mom loves pajamas, so something cozy for her to hang around in is perfect. I also loved the tassel earrings. For a mom that loves a pop and to spice up an outfit with accessories, tassel earrings are the perfect piece for her. There is always options for the home lover too, with the Voluspa candle or a cute decorative pillow specially personalized for mom and the day.
Not on the list is athletic wear, which is the perfect gift for a mom that is active and likes to get outside. With warmer weather coming, there are always fun, bright colors in workout leggings and tanks that are great additions to a mom’s workout attire. These items here and here are amazing options!
Celebrate your mom this year with an item that she will love! Happy mother’s day to all the moms out there!
As 2017 comes to a close, I can’t even begin to think about how blessed I was this year and what 2018 will hold. With that in mind, I am extremely excited to ring the new year in! Especially in style. Everyone always looks for the perfect sequin dress, which I do indeed love, but I also think there are other ways to dress up in style, without all the sparkle.
Treasure and Bond X Something Navy Satin Tunic
Leith Faux Leather Skirt
Raye Aria Booty
Asos Prosecco Pointed High Heels
Lioness Chancellor Lace Top
AG Farrah Skinny Ankle Denim
Bardot Alex Wrap Dress
House of Harlow 1960 X Revolve Kristian Dress
Faux Fur Jacket
Rhinestone Star Tassel Drop Earrings
Nars Lipstick in Jungle Red
My favorite color lately has been red. The pop adds a beautiful contrast to neutral tones. Adding it to a simple black leather skirt in the form of a satin blouse is not only sophisticated, but also spicy. I’ll be sporting a pair of black denim with a long sleeve blouse, similar to the one above. Pair it with a set of tassel earrings and a cute booty, and you’ll feel comfortable, but formal. For the more traditional mini dress, I am in love with the velvet wrap dress from Revolve. It’s sexy, yet adds that perfect warm feel. To make the outfit pop even more, add a faux fur vest or jacket to cozy up and feel glamorous.
New Years Eve is all about feeling glam and celebrating a new year! Enjoy your night, and I’ll see you in 2018!
Last Wednesday was my 22nd birthday, and it was the best one yet! I spent the week enjoying time with friends and family and doing some pretty exciting things! Below is a recap of my birth week!
I enjoyed a Red Sox game on a beautiful night, tasted local wines at Nashoba Valley Winery, sipped on rose at my birthday dinner at Yvonne’s in Boston, created a masterpiece at Muse Paint Bar, and got my game on at Dave and Busters!
The entire week was filled with such fun and love, and I couldn’t ask for anything more! Stay tuned for more on my Instagram and an exciting trip that I will be going on soon!
Thanks for all the birthday wishes!
I am OBSESSED with everything mermaid! When I was younger, I used to pretend that I was a mermaid swimming in the ocean. Now that I’m much older, I channel my love for the creature in a different way.

These goodies above are a cute and simple way to incorporate your love for mermaids into your home, heart, and life! Sport a shell shaped bikini on the beach, or send out thank you cards with a detailed fin on the paper. These items make great gifts for your friends or yourself!
With summer weekends in New England fast approaching, it’s time to break out your best summer wear for trips to the Cape! Below is an outfit guide for the perfect weekend in Cape Cod or other beach vacations!

For a beach weekend away, the best way to get the most out of what you pack is by bringing neutral tones to mix and match. Do not be afraid to combine whites for a clean and warm summer look, while adding pastels for a pretty pairing.
Happy Weekend Away
With summer dresses and off the shoulder tops, my favorite accessory to add are dainty necklaces. They are simple and perfect for layering, which is a trend I have been obsessed with! Below are a few, perfect for any look.
Moon and Lola- Metal Engraved Bar Necklace
Moon and Lola- Metal Nameplate Necklace
Bauble Bar- Asymmetrical Alpha Pendant Necklace
Bauble Bar- Edvina Bar Necklace
Kendra Scott- Elisa Pendant Necklace
Zoe Chicco- Dangling Semiprecious Stone Choker
Simple necklaces like these are perfect to pair with simple tees and tops to add a pop to any look. I love this one that can double as a choker and long necklace.
The other day, I turned the big 21! The day was filled with plenty of love, yummy food, sweets, and great celebration! If you follow me on Instagram (courtneyk1) you would have seen snippets of the day! But I wanted to share it all (or most of it) including my hair, makeup, outfit, and a few pics of the night!
My romper was from Nordstrom (unfortunately out of stock) is by Astr (similar). It is a gorgeous emerald green with V neck and back. My bralette is from H&M and the shoes are just a simple gladiator flat.
Makeup was done by myself! My hair was done courtesy of Luxebar! If you are looking for a great blow dry bar, I definitely recommend it!
I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes and a fabulous birthday! Until next year!
