Wild One

This scarf is one of my best thrift store finds. It's something my grandma would've worn. I love coming across fun little pieces when I go to the thrift store. 





I wore this outfit last Friday. Last week was crazy! By the end of the week, I was feeling out of sorts - tired & lazy. Have you ever had one of those weeks? The last thing I wanted to do was dress up. So, jeans and t-shirt it was! I spiced the outfit up by throwing this scarf on, which I wrapped around my shoulders for the most of the day since my office is always freezing! 

Now, about these boots. These boots are great. They have a bit of a heel and are a deep chocolate color (matches with pretty much everything!). These boots are also great for petite girls - they hit the perfect spot on your leg! 




I don't know about you, but I'm sooooooooooo excited for Thanksgiving. My favorite holiday. Any day that involves eating a TON is a great day in my book. I'm thankful for so much this holiday season - my wonderful family and friends, the best boyfriend ever, a job that i love, and this growing blog.


Happy Thanksgiving :)

Party Pants

11/18/14





Guys. These pants. They're heavenly. They are so comfortable and can 100% double as pajamas. For the office, I added some stilettos, a necklace, and a red lip. I call these pants my party pants. 

These pictures were taken a few days ago when NYC was blessed with 70 degree weather in November. These pants are pretty versatile, though. I'm envisioning myself wearing them with booties and a blazer in colder temps. Or even with a fur vet. Ooooooh, the possibilities. 

When it comes to dressing for the office, I'm more of a comfort kinda gal. I'm commuting in this outfit, walking around the streets of NYC in this outfit, and sitting at a desk for 8 hours in this outfit. So, of course - I want to be comfortable. These pants are just that. They're stylish, comfortable, and edgy. 





Happy Tuesday! There are so many things coming up to be excited for. Thanksgiving, MY BIRTHDAY, Christmas, New Years, etc! This time of year is my favorite. The temperatures on the East Coast suddenly plummeted and it's 30 degrees in NYC today. Isn't there  something so magical about the temperatures dropping?

Thanks for reading!

Sometimes, you really just have to match your lipstick to your dress. 

For those of my readers that know me personally and outside of the blog-sphere, I have a slight major obsession with Taylor Swift.  The title of this post are lyrics from one of my favorite songs from her new album. I couldn't be more excited to have snagged tickets to her concert next summer. Anyway, on to serious business like... my outfit! 

I feel so powerful in this dress. Red is really one of those colors that makes me strut down the street like I'm the queen of the city. Add red lipstick, a high ponytail, and cute little booties and you've got a perrrrfect 9-5 outfit. I typically save this dress for important meetings. It's really one of those dresses that can serve multiple purposes. I've also worn this baby to Christmas dinner, to job interviews, and winter weddings. It's an oldie but a goodie. 




Despite the fact that it's November, I'm still going sans-tights. I really just feel like once you put tights on, they're not coming off till March. I'm rocking my bare legs as long as I can! 

Thanks for reading :)

Back to Black

11/3/14



Lately, I've been feeling a tad uninspired when it comes to work outfits. I'm not ready to wear tights, boots and sweaters. Yet, it's a little too chilly for bare legs. Slow down, cold weather. I'm not ready for winter coats and scarves! 

The morning I wore this outfit, I wanted to wear all one color with a pop. I'm always going back to black. Whenever I'm in a style rut, I always reach for black. All black everything. I'm obsessed with these harem pants. They're from Asos and fit like a glove. They're just the right amount of baggy and have just the right amount of sag. Paired with a plain black tee, a bright necklace, and heels - they make for a perfect work outfit.





I was so thankful for the extra hour of sleep this morning. I've been working like crazy lately and every minute of sleep that I can get is a blessing. I'm already bracing myself for this jam packed week up ahead. This week includes a quick six hour work trip to Boston, a very special birthday, and mountains of work. 

Happy Monday!
