When the first day of fall rolls around, the no brainer outfit choice is white jeans, right…. ? If you were to tell me I’d break the “no white after Labor Day” rule I would have laughed. For some reason, when I was planning my outfit Tuesday night, I was drawn towards my white jeans, even though I had packed them away for the season.
Paired with my trusty chambray shirt and new favorite shoes, I was easily able to transition my white jeans into fall! I think this is only the beginning of the many ways I’ll incorporate these pants this season.
What I’m Wearing:
Chambray shirt || Most jean sizes are sold out, but check Old Navy next season!|| Booties || Satchel || Sunnies (Old Navy, check out their selection in-store!) || Statement necklace (old, similar)
Music is a big part of my everyday life. When I get out of bed in the morning, the first thing I do is put on my Top Hits. Sometimes I feel like I’m getting ready to to a club, but it really helps me wake up in the morning. Music continues into the rest of my day, while I commute to work, and even sometimes while I’m working on some projects.
Do you ever find a song that you’re OBSESSED with, and just end up playing it on repeat? Oh, is that just me? Oops. Well, here are some of my favorite tunes lately:

Every year summer turns into fall, right? So why is it every year around this time I am at a loss of what to wear! The mornings are cool, the afternoons hot, the office always FREEZING. I just wish someone would just tell me what to wear sometimes, ha.
Luckily I did a little shopping last weekend for some pieces to help me transition from summer into fall. I saw this black dress hanging at Old Navy, and wasn’t sure how I’d like it on, but I’m obsessed. It was perfect on Tuesday, as I had an alumni event after work at a rooftop bar. When it gets a little chiller I can definitely throw on a loose sweater or even a structured blazer.
How about these booties? I also picked these up last weekend. I was worried there isn’t any strap around the ankle but they’re surprisingly very comfortable! I’m so excited to wear these with jeans and some brown-colored tops.
What I’m Wearing:
Dress ($15 right now!!) || Booties || Satchel || Sunnies (Old Navy, check out their selection in-store!)
Oops I did it again…. I cut my hair! I’ve been looking to change up my hair again, and I was between a long bob or adding layers. Ultimately I chose chopping it short again, and I love it! Its so much easier to style and just so fun. I can’t wait to style it different ways!
We had a sneak peak of fall weather last weekend, so I had to pull out my striped top. I did a little shopping this weekend and I can’t wait to start styling fall looks again! Get ready for some fun looks soon. 🙂
What I’m Wearing:
AE striped shirt (old, similar) || AE jeans (old, these are super cute and I WANT THEM) Marshall’s shoes (old) || Coach small Kelsey satchel
What hair styles are you predicting this fall season!?
As you know, I believe every occasion deserves champagne. That’s why when my best friend came to visit over Labor Day, I knew we had to add some champagne to our weekend.
Atop of the Conrad Hotel in Battery Park City sits Loopy Doopy bar, a super chic location for happy hour or late night drinks. Their claim to fame? Prosecco on tap paired with alcoholic People’s Pops in fun flavor combinations. That night I tried the strawberry lemongrass and Christina had the empire apple.
When I visited this time, I noticed a difference in the awning covering the bar and the additional high tables. I definitely welcomed this change! I think it was the perfect night to visit because it wasn’t too crowded (I think the holiday weekend shooed people out of the city) and we were able to snag a seat to enjoy the beautiful views.
The drinks are a little pricey– $18 for the prosecco + lollipop treat, but definitely a great special occasion spot! I can’t wait to bring my little sister next summer when she’s 21! 🙂
So I loveeee chocolate. Shocker I know, it’s in my blog title.
My best friend, Christina, came to visit me over the long Labor Day Weekend, so we decided to head up to Union Square for brunch at Max Brenner. I had been for brunch once before, but was excited to head back. I ordered eggs with hash browns and a side of a biscuit (complete with chocolate dipping sauce), and Christina got the white chocolate/apple cinnamon french toast. Both dishes were FAB and I even enjoyed a fresh cup of Earl Grey Tea Infusion. It was so yummy!
If you’re a chocolate lover I definitely recommend heading over to Max Brenner. I’m hoping my next trip there will be for dessert — I was eyeing the fondue and white chocolate chai!
Hey all! Hope you had great Labor Day Weekend! Now that the summer is officially over (I’m hoping the warm weather will last a bit longer), I’m ready to get back into a fitness routine. Two weeks ago I tried out FlyBarre for the first time, using a credit I had from my SELF Up N Out Studio weekend!
I had taken barre classes a lot during the winter of my senior year, so this workout wasn’t completely new to me, but it had definitely been awhile! Lots of core work and tucking had me feeling very shaky by the end of class. I had an awesome instructor Hannah, who welcomed me and made sure any questions I had prior to class were answered. Hannah also made it a point to walk around during class and correct everyones form, which is sometimes lacking in a fitness class but extremely important.
I think FlyBarre would perfectly compliment classes at Soul Cycle and normal gym workouts. I can’t wait to try to incorporate that into my routine.
What other workouts should I try next?!
