For a while now, I have been wanting to try out a pair of cropped jeans, but have been unsure of which brand to try. So when Zappos reached about a partnership with Joe’s Jeans and Steve Madden, I was excited to style an outfit around two brands that I love.read more >
I don’t know about you, but I love Pinterest. I can spend hours pinning and getting lost looking at other people’s boards and inspirations and I love how it’s an easy way to digitally keep track of things I am interested in. I also love Marshalls and grew up going there to shop for great items at discounted prices. So when project Pin Pals came my way, I was so excited to team up with two brands that I already use and enjoy.
The idea behind this fun Pin Pals campaign is to help bring three lucky reader’s inspiration to life with these personalized gift boxes. After selecting the winners, I scoured their Pinterest boards to see what makes them tick, then headed to Marshalls and hand selected each item you see.
The in-store experience was just as I expected it to be: employees were on hand to answer any questions I had about where products were located, I was able to scoot my little cart around filling it up with all the awesome pieces you see below but I had to work really hard at not getting sidetracked and shopping for myself, although I did snag the killer heels you see in the first photo above.
All in all, I had such a fun time picking out these gifts and at times had a hard time deciding between things because there were so many great options to choose from. But that is what makes Marshalls so fab and why I have been shopping there since I was a young girl.
Alright, let’s get onto the gifts!
Gift Box #1: After looking through winner number one’s boards, I learned that she loves lipstick, cute accessories, cooking and inspirational quotes.Gift Box #2: According to winner number two’s boards, I found that she loves delicate jewelry, country living, handbags, and decorative odds and ends.Gift Box #3: And After looking through winner number three’s boards, I gathered that she likes fitness, nail polish, pumpkin flavored things and cute beanies.
I am always coming across surprising finds on Pinterest, and the same thing happens whenever I enter Marshalls. I totally thrive on discovering new finds, which is half the fun of shopping for me! Check out the Marshalls Pin Pals board and be sure to repin your favorites as you never know who’s next to be surprised! Stay tuned to hear who the lucky winners are!

As a little girl, I grew up watching baseball with my Dad, which I loved because it was something special we did together. Since I really didn’t have anyone else around me at the time that cared much about football, it was never a focus of mine…
As a Pacific Northwest native, I would often go camping with my family during the summer and we would always end the evening by sitting around a campfire making S’mores. I feel like most people have some sort of nostalgic connection to this sweet treat, as well as HERSHEY’S Milk chocolate because it’s one of the main (and best, in my opinion) ingredients in making an excellent S’more. The melted chocolate was always my favorite part and I would often sneak extra squares when no one was looking. But now that I live in a New York apartment, it’s not that easy to just whip up a good ol’ fashioned S’more over a fire pit anymore, so sometimes I have to get a little creative when I’m making them. By the way, did you know that Hershey’s is an official sponsor of Team USA for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games? Well, in honor of the occasion, Casey and I brought everything we needed to make S’mores over at my friend’s house (they have a backyard!) to watch the Opening Ceremony tonight. There really isn’t a more perfect American summer treat! We barbecued, played lawn games and caught up with friends we haven’t seen in a while – it was so fun! I even brought along a variety of festive Hershey’s products, complete with Team USA-themed packaging. When it was time to head back inside to watch the Games, we made a bunch of S’mores to bring inside with us to snack on while we cheered on our country.In honor of National S’mores Day on August 10th one lucky reader can win an awesome S’mores Kit complete with everything you’ll need to make them at home including HERSHEY’S Milk chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallows, roasting sticks and a burner. See belowhow you can enter to win! After using this handy little appliance for an evening, I can attest to the fact that it’s the perfect summer must-have for entertaining family and friends, especially if you don’t have your own fire pit or grill! We actually used it outside and just grabbed an extension cord to reach all the way out on the patio. Easy peasy!How to Enter: Are you guys watching the Olympic Games? I don’t know about you, but I can’t imagine being an Olympian and being in Rio for such an incredible accomplishment. How amazing right? But I know that they definitely give up a lot to get there and spend a lot of time away from best friends, family and loved ones to pursue their dreams. I would love to ask you guys to join in to show your support for Team USA by entering this giveaway and Tweeting ‘hello’s’ from home and other messages of support to the athletes using the hashtag #HelloFromHome, and tagging @hersheys, and @TeamUSA. GO TEAM USA! xoxo This post was in collaboration with The Hershey Company. As always, all opinions and styling are my own. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that support My Style Pill.
I have been a fan of ModCloth ever since I started blogging, which was back in 2008. I eventually began working with the brand shortly after that (they even named a dress after me!) and they were the first company to run an ad on my site, which is so cool to think about. Needless to say I have a great relationship with them and am so excited to partner with them again!So let’s dive right in. Today’s topic is: workwear! Although I don’t technically have to go into an office everyday, I often have meetings with clients and brands, so when I need to look a bit more professional, I like to have easy, go-to dresses that I can slip on and look put together in minutes. This dress is a perfect example because the striped pattern acts as the main focal point, allowing for simple accessories that can quickly be swapped out depending on what your post-work plans might be. In this case, I chose to wear these cute neutral booties (shop similar styles here) with the dress to give it an understated vibe that didn’t feel too fussy. But you could easily dress up this look by wearing open toed sandals and a clutch or dress it down by wearing cute flats and a leather tote.
And speaking of totes, this particular one is my new fave. I love that it has three separate compartments that comfortably fit my computer, iPad, wallet, camera and anything else I might need for the day. Plus I love the mixed materials of canvas and leather – it really gives the bag a polished feel.
I am always advising my clients on where to find great work pieces that are versatile and cute, so I would love to know where you guys shop for your work clothing? Are you familiar with ModCloth’s awesome workwear options? If you have a few more minutes, shop around the site to find some more cute shoes,tops andbottoms for the office!

As someone who works from home for the most part, I usually wear fairly casual clothing when it’s just me sitting at my desk. But there are also plenty of days that I have meetings or client sessions and I want to take my style up a notch and wear something I feel good in. On my busiest days, I definitely wear a few different “hats” whether it’s “blogger, stylist, friend or girlfriend,” but I always want to make sure that my outfits transition effortlessly into whatever it is I might be doing. I find that during the summer I am drawn to pretty, lightweight shift dresses that I can easily dress up or down and this pretty white linen dress with elegant embroidery from Tommy Bahama is the perfect piece to wear to a meeting then straight out to happy hour with friends. Case in point: I wore this look earlier to a causal client session (a pair of simple flat sandals were in my bag – see my styling tip below) straight out to drinks with Casey and a few mutual colleagues at Parlor for some after work drinks.Styling tip:
Stash a high heel sandal in your bag to swap out your flat sandals, and a favorite accessory such as a statement necklace or a couple of bracelets to elevate your look in seconds. Or if jewelry isn’t your thing, grab your favorite red lipstick to really pack some punch!

I have lived in New York for eleven and a half years now, which is crazy to think about. Over the years, I have found that I’ve acquired my favorite spots to do things such as work, eat, drink and shop, so when StyleCaster and H&M asked to collaborate with me on a project sharing my favorite haunts, I was definitely down to share! Since I live downtown, I decided to focus on the West Village and Meatpacking District as my focal points to keep it local and easy to navigate.
