Direct sunlight will be the death of me, you guys!! I spotted this wall on someone’s instagram page and decided I needed to shoot here… but of course when we got there the sun was so harsh which makes for a terrible time to shoot. I was really impressed with Kelly’s photography skills because she still managed to get some great shots. Imagine what she could’ve done with better lighting! 😉
My Dune London sandals…. I’m obsessed. You all need them! I got them at Piperlime’s closing sale but Dune is still selling a similar pair. And I may or may not have worn this striped maxi dress 3 times in the past week. HA! If I go to three different places in three days, it’s new each time. 🙂 Should I be embarrassed that I just put this nice piece of information out there on the internet for everyone to see?? I love a dress with sleeves so a maxi dress with sleeves is my ideal every day dress. I even wore it to work with a cool blazer and wedges. And it’s 50% off now!
I 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! 😉
Every 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!!
I 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.
When 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. 😉

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)!
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!
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!
I’ve been obsessed with this Rebecca Minkoff bucket bag since the day it came out so when there was a 25% off sale, I went ahead and bought it through Lyst. I talked about my discovery of Lyst here, a website that partners with an incredible selection of designers and stores, from Valentino and Burberry to Net-A-Porter and Topshop, so that you have all of fashion in one place. That mean that I’m first to see the latest pieces from the designers I love and also first to find out when the items I’m coveting go on sale! I’m frequently updating my Wish Lyst where you can see the newest products that catch my eye. Buying my bucket bag through Lyst was easy. I already had the moto bucket bag on my Wish Lyst so I knew when it went on sale. Sorry, it’s full price again but if you love it as much as I do, it’s a worthy choice!
I’m obsessed with all the details of this bucket bag. The zipper down the middle with the exterior pocket not only looks cool but is really practical and useful. The magnetic closure is great and of course my personal necessity in a bag; the crossbody strap. I’m loving it paired with gorgeous Leslie Francesca jewels.
