Purple Shirtdress With Piol

purple shift dressI had a great experience creating a custom-made dress with Piol in the past (and here too) so I was excited to work with them a third time to create a new dress for warmer weather. If you’re unfamiliar with Piol, it’s a website where you can customize the dress of your dreams to your exact measurements in the fabrics, colors, and prints of your choosing and in the style and shape you like. What makes Piol unique is the way they give you fabric colors and print choices based on your skin tone and coloring. My medium brown hair, blue eyes, and light skin tone gave me powder blue, lavender, coral pink and sapphire blue as the shades that work best for me which is nice to know! I chose fit and flare dresses the first two times so I decided to do something different the third time and choose a purple shirtdress. I do have to say that I don’t feel as comfortable in this shirtdress style but I love the stunning purple dot print AND THE POCKETS! ;)

purple druzy necklaceEvery time I open a package from Leslie Francesca jewelry I literally squeal out loud. How cool are her pieces?? This fun round druzy ring (comes in a lot more color choices too) has been worn pretty much every day since I got it. It’s a really easy way to make an outfit interesting and it goes with everything. I also LOVE my druzy teardrop earrings (I wore them in another color here and here), bar necklace, and druzy bracelet. Check out her instagram for more gorgeousness. Leslie can do no wrong!!

Prospect Park With My Sister

IMG_1035I don’t talk much about it, but my baby sister Kayla was really sick when she was born. The doctors predicted nothing but terrible things for her future but my sister proved them wrong. She is a miracle baby and I am so grateful that she is healthy, happy, and thriving. Kayla still has difficulties ahead of her but she is the cutest little thing with the most adorable personality and she brings so much joy into my life.

I have long hours at work so I appreciate every moment I can spend with my family. I took Kayla with me to Prospect Park on a beautiful Sunday morning in our new Famous Footwear shoes. Our walk involved her running after every dog she saw so when you see her finger pointed, I can pretty much guarantee it’s because she’s pointing to another dog she spotted. :) The cherry blossoms have been blooming like crazy lately so it was the perfect time to go to the park.

IMG_0937When I spotted the adorable shoes Kayla is wearing at Famous Footwear, I knew I needed to get them for her. How cute do they look on her little chubby legs? ;) She’s still a little wobbly when she walks but she walked comfortably in them.

My Nike running sneakers are so insanely comfortable and I am so excited to wear them when I go running this weekend! I like my workout gear to be as bright and colorful as possible so these running sneakers definitely fit the bill well. I am seriously considering getting them in the gorgeous blue color too. I’m not usually a “sneaker wearer” unless I’m at the gym but they are great when you’re running after a one year old in the park. But maybe I can start rocking the athleisure trend more often. ;)

Coral Lace Dress

I fell in love with this coral lace dress from Teri Jon from the moment I spotted it online and it’s just as gorgeous in person. The color is beautiful, the embellished belt is a gorgeous touch, and I also love the scalloped hemline. I wore it while in LA on Passover and got so many compliments on it. It also comes in a dusty pink, navy, black, and royal blue. I was debating on the navy but I’m glad I went with this vibrant “watermelon” pink. It’s so fun!lace dressWhen I met my photographer’s dog, I couldn’t resist sneaking him in for some photos. He’s a Pekingese and the cutest little thing!

Three Cool Nail Art Ideas

waterfall nail

This March was definitely the month of the coolest manicures! I get my nails done at a salon near my house with a nail technician that blows my mind every time I visit! I usually show up with cool nail art designs I found on instagram or pinterest and it’s fun seeing them come to life. Sometimes we tweak things a bit and sometimes we use the exact images but I leave loving my nails every time. Hey, it’s the little things in life! ;)

ombre nails

Here we did an ombre nail design inspired my dandelion cell phone case. We tried adding dandelions to my design but they looked like snowflakes so we kept them simple. And I like the results!
geometric nail artThis teal glitter was an afterthought and best.decision.ever. ;)

galaxy nails

We copied this design straight from @marienails on instagram. This purple galaxy was one of my favorite designs I’ve had done so far!geometric nails waterfall nailsI’m obsessed with this waterfall manicure inspired by @thesammersaurus. This one also one of my favorites and I want to try it again in shades of blue!

All my druzy rings are thanks to Wrenn Jewelry.


Mint Green Goodness

It was such a treat taking photos in LA last week! Obviously, not freezing my brains off was a huge bonus but also the beautiful flowers were a great contrast to the city shots I usually do in New York. These photos were taken on my aunt’s block. I wish I could’ve explored a little more and shot  at some beaches but I enjoyed spending time with my family. And a big thank you to Goldie for her beautiful photography!

Let’s discuss my beautiful jewelry for a second. I need to introduce you to Nesoi Collection, an Etsy shop I am obsessed with. I can’t decide which piece of jewelry I love more; this crystal quartz necklace wrapped in the coolest iridescent rainbow spiral or my druzy star cuff bracelet! Nesoi Collection has the prettiest collection of druzy jewelry; jewelry that you won’t find all over the place because many of her pieces are one of a kind which makes her jewelry even more special to me. Some of my current favorites include the blue druzy bangle, the electroformed purple point necklace, the sparkly blue three stone ring, and the light blue butterfly bangle. Nesoi Collection is offering 10% off for you guys with code ASequinLoveAffair! If you get something, I’d love to see your Nesoi jewelry so tag on me instagram (or social media of your choosing ha ha)!

aSequinLoveAffair (2 of 80)I get so many compliments on these mint green heels and while I’m completely in love with them, they are not my most comfortable pair of shoes to wear…. to put it mildly. ;) But a little discomfort for these beauties is worth it; I just make sure to bring flats with me to change into!

aSequinLoveAffair (15 of 80)If you follow me on instagram, you may have already seen these sunglasses….. modeled on someone I just can’t compete with! But hey, I tried my best. :) These sunglasses are from Gufo Design, an italian company that sells beautiful watches and wooden sunglasses. They are gorgeous, well made, and come in the coolest designs!
