Red Coat pt. 2

IMG_5435

Do you watch Pretty Little Liars? Every season I say I’m not going to watch, but here I am 5 years later, still watching. It’s crazy to think it started the summer before I went to college! Time flies when you’re trying to figure out who A is ;)

But more on this coat… I got it for a Christmas gift two years ago, and at first I was I wasn’t sold but now its one of my FAVS! Its super warm and pairs great with black jeans + accessories. And these sunnies! My sister brought them back from London and I couldn’t wait to break them out.

London throwback — V & A Museum

IMG_1051

Even a little rain couldn’t ruin this picture perfect view at the Victoria and Albert Museum! This was one of our first stops after we landed in London back in October. After a long flight, we refreshed at the hotel, and then pulled ourselves together for our first sight seeing stop in London!

I knew I wanted to be comfortable (leggings FTW) but thought a crisp white button down and army green vest would create some balance. It was a little chilly this day, so I threw on my cargo jacket, a scarf and gloves to keep me warm.

I’m working on a full recommendations list from our trip to London, that I’m hoping to share next week. Let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see in the comments below!

I’m not sure if you know, but I work in social media… ;) When I don’t feel like getting super dressed for work, I always try to find a way to incorporate some of my social media swag into my everyday look.

NYC has finally gotten the whole “winter” memo, and its been pretty darn chilly lately. I’m still not sure how Marie and I took these pics outside! Luckily I have a short walk to the subway, but you can most likely find me rocking a beanie on my commute to work in the winter time. I’m also loving the whole graphic sweatshirt look. Pairing it with ripped jeans might seem a little tooo dressed down, but is perfect for a casual Tuesday ;)

What I’m Wearing:

American Eagle Jeans (old, but LOVING this TomGirl style from AEO) || Tumblr Sweatshirt || Old Navy Hat (old, similar from Forever 21) || || Champion sneaks

Reflecting on 2015

2015 was a pretty great year. A few ups and downs, but that’s to be expected every year, right? Last week I was looking at a white board I have in my bedroom at home where I listed my 2015 goals, and realized I completed almost every single one! Coincidentally, they tie into some of my favorite moments from 2015:

A few weeks into the new year I was offered a full time job at the agency where I was interning. I’ve been in my position for almost a full year and I couldn’t be happier working at an amazing company with awesome coworkers.

I fell in love… with Soul Cycle that is. In April I tried Soul Cycle for the first time, which I talked about in this post. It is probably one of the best things to happen to me in 2015, and I can really see my improvement from my first ride. I ride front row more and more!

In May, after gaining some confidence from Soul Cycle, I received my Zumba Instructor certification. I haven’t begun teaching yet, but I’m hoping that’ll happen in 2016 ;)

In August, I finally found an apartment in Manhattan to move into after searching for quite a few months. I still can’t believe I’m living a dream I’ve had since I was a little girl.

My sister studied abroad in London this past semester, and my family and I went to visit her! It was my first time out of the country so it was a big deal. I absolutely loved the trip and can’t wait to plan some travel for 2016.

And last but not least, I worked on this blog quite a bit, and even did my first partner post with New York & Company!

Thank you for all of your support during 2015. I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store. Have a safe and Happy New  Year!!

Feeling Flannel

IMG_1385

I just love a long weekend home– and when it’s filled with good food, you know you have to dress for comfort. When I got ready for Thanksgiving dinner, I knew I needed something comfortable but still fashionable… because I was obviously taking advantage of blog photos with my mom.

Shockingly enough (not really) I’m wearing head-to-toe Old Navy. This flannel is a little festive with the red, which is so perfect as we are approaching the holiday season. The weather was great on Thanksgiving, so I only needed to wear my vest over it! And when you’re eating stuffing and desserts, you have to wear leggings. These are apart of Old Navy’s Activewear line, but with a little bit of leather-looking patches, make them perfect for everyday wear.

Top this off with some brown boots and a brown tote, and you have the perfect outfit to transition from fall to winter! I can’t wait to start incorporating my vests into my wardrobe. Luckily, I haven’t really needed them yet!

Flannel popover (old, similar) || Vest (old, similar) || Boots (old, similar) || Leggings (old, similar) || Tote || Leaf necklace

Skirt Day

IMG_4196 Ever have a day you feel just. on. point. ? Well that’s how I felt in this outfit. This skirt has been a go-to in my wardrobe this fall (mostly because I refuse to wear pants) and because I’ve found so many different ways to pair it– you may remember it from last fall! Ann Taylor Loft has SO many cute skirt options right now, I think I may need to invest in a few more. I’ve been looking for a plain white blouse for a few weeks, and went to Forever 21 for a inexpensive piece that can be worn a bunch of different ways. I’m thinking of wearing this next with dark jeans and black heels for dinner + drinks. Of course, can’t forget my Old Navy tote that I picked up for my London trip. It’s become my daily work bag!

White Blouse || Skirt (old, some options I love) || Booties (old) || Leaf necklace ||Tote

Champagne Christmas

Hello hello, Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you had a lovely day yesterday. I spent it with my family in Brooklyn. It was a great day, but I was really missing my sister while she’s still in London. Now I’m ready to get into the Christmas spirit, and count down the days until she’s home!

I’m dropping in to share the CUTEST holiday collection from Kate Spade featuring my favorite, champagne! The collection also includes many glittery favorites, and some NY inspired pieces as well.

Check out my favorites below, and happy shopping!
