Two in One

5/27/15




I don't know what to call this top. A sweatshirt? A dress shirt? It's BOTH! The back and sleeves is made from dress shirt material. The front is sweatshirt material. It's the perfect stylish, laid-back, office appropriate look. 






Last week, there were a few days in NYC that were on the cooler side. I took this as the opportunity to wear a few pieces in my closet that I didn't get a chance to wear when it was colder out. I envision SO MANY outfits with this top. I'd like to wear it on a casual Friday with jeans, on a cooler summer day with a grey cotton skirt, and with a khaki pencil skirt. 




Did you have a good long weekend? I went to a wedding, ate a LOT, binge watched The Secret Life of the American Teenager (remember that show!?), and... ate a LOT! Have a good week! It's almost Friday :)

Never Ending Stripes

5/20/15




I love striped tees. Literally half of my closet is packed with anything and everything striped- tights, dresses, long sleeves tees, short sleeves tees, headbands, etc. You name it, I probably have it in stripes. 




I saw this tee on J.Crew's website a few weeks ago. I kept going back to it. It was so cute, but not at a price I wanted to pay. I basically started stalking the J.Crew site and then, it went on sale! Finally! I've been wearing this shirt a LOT - mostly on weekends! I decided to wear it to work the other day and I love the way it turned out. The weather in NYC has been a little crazy lately... so hot one day and then so cold the next day, freezing in the mornings but sweltering in the afternoons. I played it safe and added a scarf to my outfit and took it off later in the day. There are so many possibilities with this shirt, so many ways to style it. Style it up with a skirt and heels, style it down with ripped boyfriend jeans, or go in-between like I did.





Happy ALMOST long weekend! I seriously can't wait, guys. I'm going to a wedding this weekend and I may even brave the crazy crowds at the Jersey shore. Have a wonderful long weekend and eat lots and lots of hot dogs, burgers, and ice cream - I know I will! Thanks for reading :)

Like Kanye West

5/14/15




When I left my house in this sweater, my brother told me I looked like Kanye West. That's the best compliment I've ever gotten. He's a fashion icon. He's always wearing long sweaters like this... just like mine! 



I've found the solution for those colder days (like today). I picked up this long, light sweater at Aeropostle last week. I haven't shopped there since I was in middle school and I was so glad I decided to pop in there. I wanted everything. Literally everything. This sweater is perfect for days where it's a little cooler but will be warming up later. I paired the sweater with a white tee, leggings, a fun necklace and booties. This sweater can be worn all year round. When it gets warmer, I plan on wearing it to the boardwalk over a swimsuit. In the fall, I'll wear it with tall brown boots, and in the winter, I'll layer it with a chambray top! The possibilities are endless. Whenever I buy something, I like to think of at least three or four different ways I could wear a piece. This sweater passed the test :) 




Happy Friday Eve!  I'm seeing Pitch Perfect on Friday with my girlfriends and I plan on spending the rest of the weekend relaxing a ton! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading :)

Spring Chill

5/1/15





Notice anything different? I got a haircut! I did a major chop last week and cut off 6 inches. My hair feels so light and healthy. It's so weird to wash my hair because I literally use half the amount of shampoo, conditioner, and product as before! I love my short hair so much that I kind of want to go even shorter

Last week, there were a few really cold days in NYC. I was actually a little happy about it. I took it as an opportunity to wear some colder weather clothes that I didn't really get to wear this winter. I bought this sweater a few months ago when Shopbop was having a major sale.  I fell in love as soon as I saw it. They didn't have the sweater in my size but I got it anyway. It's a little too big but I rolled up the sleeves and made it work! I love the cut of the sweater. It's so unique and I've never really seen anything like it.





I am so happy it's Friday, I could scream. This week has been a tough one for me and I've been feeling overwhelmed. I'm looking forward to a nice dinner with one of my girlfriends from college tonight, seeing a movie tomorrow, and making this for dinner on Sunday night. Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for reading :)
