Wining

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed lately, but wine is IN. Wine sweaters, wine dresses, wine pants, it’s everywhere!

I have been a NY & Company fan for years, so I was very excited when they invited me to check out their new Eva Mendes collection. I was immediately drawn to this dress when I started my shopping. Then, I tried it on and I fell in love! It’s very flattering and super comfortable. Not to mention the faux-suede material is so soft. While I was wandering the store, I also came across this gold statement necklace. I’ve been trying to add to my necklace collection, so I knew I needed to bring this piece home with me. I cannot wait to wear this outfit to work or to drinks with friends this month!

Fall is in full swing and I’m absolutely loving it! I’m trying to take advantage of the warm weather as much as possible. No jeans for me while I can rock bare legs all day everyday! That’s why when I went into NY & Company last week, I headed straight for the dress section of the new Eva Mendes Collection. Blue is my favorite color, so this dress was a no-brainer. I quickly thought about all the ways I could style this dress– brown booties, black short boots, black heels, the possibilities are endless! This dress is definitely going to be a staple over the next few weeks and I can even see myself pairing it with black opaque tights in the winter.

While in London, we had the best weather! There was no sight of rain, which we were so worried about. On the third day of our trip, we started our morning by having breakfast in our hotel and then heading to visit the Sherlock Holmes Museum. The houses in the area were so cute, I had to take advantage of the great scenery. My vest was a staple throughout my whole trip, as it helped give me an extra layer under my jacket, or stand alone when the sun was shining. Somehow it matched with almost everything I brought with me on this trip! I can’t wait to continue pairing it with outfits for the rest of this season.

Hello, it’s me.

Can you tell I’ve been listening to the new Adele song? Thought it was fitting for my return after a little vacation hiatus. Earlier this month I went to London to visit my sister while she’s studying abroad! It was the most AMAZING trip and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.

First up, wanted to share my highlights from our quick 4 night stay across the pond. I absolutely loved London and I definitely recommend a visit to anyone interested.

Check out my favorite moments below:

My first international flight! I was crazy nervous but did so well. 🙂

Had to take a picture in a red telephone booth

I’m not the biggest Harry Potter fan but come on, how fun!

The first day we visited the Victoria and Albert Museum. I loved this outside area!  

Here’s the Tower Bridge! All I could think about while I was there was the Spice World movie scene where their tour bus jumps the bridge!

The best part was definitely reuniting with my baby sis. I’m so happy she’s having this amazing experience but I can’t wait until she’s back in NY!

Hope you enjoyed this quick preview! I can’t wait to continue sharing what we did, but favorite spots, and some outfit posts.

White After Labor Day

IMG_4164

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)

 Happy Friday!!

What I’m Listening to Lately

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.

  • That’s How You Know (feat. Kid Ink & Bebe Rexha)- Nico & Vinz

Strolling in TriBeCa

IMG_4110

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.
