New Look + New [York] City

Street Style | Fashion Lifestyle Blog | Classic Look | Blogger | Denim Casual | Biz & Brunch

Two business trips later and I am WIPED out. Took a few Instagram sabbaticals, but I’m ready to go back on the grid! First, however, I do want to point out, Biz & Brunch has a new look! Color scheme is still the same, but my little space now has a cleaner look and feel. This layout has better functionality for fashion posts (‘Shop the Look’ is now readily available from the homepage), and more opportunities for engagement with readers. Took…

Instagram Roundup: May

What a week! A couple of days into June, and I’m here fresh off of a sale roundup, with my May Instagram Roundup! Biz & Brunch turns 6 months old this week, and while it took awhile to hit its stride (it came out of the gate really strong, then kind of fell behind with long-term planning!), I’m really happy with the results. I’m so glad to have started this dang thing, and most importantly, to have made connections with those…

Summer Sale Roundup

Summer Sale Roundup | Designer Tops, Dresses, Shoes, & Accessories for Summer } Fashion & Lifestyle Blog | Biz & Brunch

With Memorial Day Weekend here, it’s officially the start of Summer! Coming fresh off a post this week about my recent health kick, I figured why not reward myself with some new duds? And on sale! From my favorite store (hi, Nordstrom)! Given all of the misery I’ve gone through barely being able to eat anything with flavor, I figure, I earned it. Right? Right! The sale As everyone in my personal life knows, I am obsessed with Nordstrom. The…

That Health Kick

Healthy Eating | Biz & Brunch | Fitness Fashion | Blog

Happy Wednesday peeps! In my last post, I briefly mentioned my recent health kick. Between clean eating (hi, almond butter) and now running 4-5 days a week, I feel really amazing. My thinking, productivity, and just overall clarity has MAJORLY improved. And it’s only been 4 weeks! Before this, I was a complete heathen. I was a regular at Happy Hour every Friday from 5pm-2am (at least), finishing the night off with McDonald’s, Taco Bell, two slices of $2 pizza, or my former…

Jumping for Jumpsuits

White Jumpsuit | Denim Jacket | Cognac Sandals | Women's Style | Fashion & Lifestyle Blog | Biz & Brunch

It’s Wednesday and my head is spinning. Fast week, a lot going on in the Sea & Sand world, but I’m managing to get by! I recently took up running and I can honestly say, it has completely changed my outlook on stress. As my mom says, it’s always important to make time for yourself. So between that and almond butter …it’s basically one of the best decisions I’ve made this year. Given my new take on fitness, and clean…

Summer Sets

Black Floral Maxi Dress | Miami | Black Suede and Leather Designer Handbag | Summer Style | Women's Fashion & Lifestyle Blog | Biz & Brunch

It’s MAY, which means: Gimme all the maxis! While I’m not a big fan of being matchy-matchy (my bathing suits don’t even match, ever!), this look is packed with surprises. The first? It’s actually a two-piece matching set. Spotted these finds in Nordstrom on one of my mall cardio stints and knew I HAD to have it. And yes, I find time to get my self-proclaimed mall cardio in once a week. The top is sold separately, but once I tried it on in…

Instagram Roundup: Spring Edition

Shoes | Casual | Sand Suede Mules | Women's Fashion and Style | Biz & Brunch

Still really can’t believe how FAST April flew by! Things are moving super quickly with both work and the blogging realm. Also, totally off topic side note, but whenever I see the word “realm” I instantly think of Sabrina the Teenage Witch and am flash backed to TGIF on Friday nights (shoutout to any of my fellow 90s kids out there). But I digress! For the first half of the month, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t really overwhelmed. Being…

A Romp in the Park

Rompers + Off the Shoulder = Nicole Williams. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve really bought into the off the shoulder look the last year. When I was a toddler, I would purposely pull my necklines off of any tank or t-shirt to achieve this look. Evidence below I’ve been obsessed with this look since ’92. Fashion, and my life, so cyclical! lol Obviously, flash forward to now, I’m taking full advantage of the trend. Whether it’s traveling on a weekend…

When Life Gives You Lemons

Overalls | Lemon Top | Women's Fashion & Lifestyle Blog | Florida | Biz & Brunch

Make sure you invest in a good hairspray. I seriously don’t know how my hair is going to survive the Florida heat this summer! As mentioned on my Instagram, my hair was chopped into a long bob shortly after this. And after seeing these photos – I’m so glad it was! This was about 45 minutes and one outfit change into my shoot with the awesome Andrea Harborne Photography – and my hair looked like a 70’s disco star’s until we moved to…

Hiatuses. Hiatuses are healthy. I’m not sure if it’s because I work in social media, but I’ve found the busier I get, the less I want to spend my free minutes mindlessly on my phone, or staring at a computer screen. I am a HUGE advocate of unplugging and go off the grid often. So with the world of blogging, it’s definitely a balancing act. Small look into my daily life On a personal level – do I go for days…
