The Flower Stand

Out And About

In The Neighborhood 

Hell’s Kitchen is not only my favorite NYC neighborhood because that’s where I live, but its streets are consistently busy with the most wonderful and happy people. My favorite moments are actually those of little adventures. My regular walks through places like Restaurant Row, Theater District, Columbus Circle and Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market bring me most joy. With that, I know the sights and scenes of HK (and all of NYC) will stick with me forever.

On a stunning fall day (like pictured below), I like to check out all of the flower stands to see who has the best sunflower line up. If you haven’t caught on, sunflowers are my favorite fall bloom. When I found these sunflowers and perfectly placed pumpkins, I force my gal pal Alyssa to stop and capture some pics.

So there ya have it; a fall outfit for a perfect fall day in Hell’s Kitchen. My hope is for all of you to one day experience the sights and scenes of a city like NYC. It promises to be one hell of a memory, always.

ps – Another shoutout to my friends at The Fancy Flamingos. These bracelets are to die for. Especially “The McLean” bangle. You sure do know how to make a girl feel special. Shop HERE!

Sweater & Denim

Old & New Pieces

For Any Wardrobe

Today’s post features many NEW wardrobe favorites, as well as a few NEW lessons I’ve learned or reapplied to my life. I hope that all of you can take something away from this post, (that’s the point right?) and apply it to your own wardrobe/life.

To start, I’ve had this oversized Old Navy sweater for about 5 years now, and it finally has made a comeback. When you get the feeling that something in your wardrobe will have meaning again one day, you are probably right. Put it away for another day (in the future). → There are definitely things worth holding onto. Don’t forget that! 

Second, I’ve known about the bracelet “stacking” trend for several seasons. However, I am a very minimal jewelry person, and I know many of you can relate to this. I always see cute ways to stack and wear bangles of all kinds, but for a girl on the move it always seems to get in my way.

Long story short, when I found out two of my sorority sisters were making the cutest, easy to stack bangles, I knew I had to give their pieces a try. The best part is, I always feel fun and girly when I wear my Fancy Flamingo bracelets, and they never get in the way of my life on the go. If you’re like me, try these bracelets HERE. → We can all be trendy in our own way.

Lastly, I’ve always been a firm believer in reinventing pieces in your wardrobe to get the most bang for your buck. When I heard about this handbag company, MICHE, I realized their brand was perfectly in tune with this fashion mantra. Although I have styled one of their products totally different than intended, (see below) their stuff is genius. Take a look HERE. → “Creativity is intelligence having fun.”  - Albert Einstein

That’s all for now! xx

Big Sweater Weather, No. 2

A LexWhatWear Tradition;

All About Styling Your Oversized Sweaters! 

Say HELLO (again) to the oversized sweater! Just this time last year, I wrote a post about the big sweater trend, and it seems nothing has changed in the last 365 plus days. In fact, last year’s post has been one of the TOP viewed LWW posts of all time. So I’m back to share my words of wisdom for rocking this fabulous fall/winter trend. Since the trend is still consistent with last year, you can either read below or simply click HERE to see all about styling the oversized sweater. Don’t forget to see ALL NEW pics for the trend below!

“Nothing sounds more delightful than an oversized, comfy, cozy, and casual knit sweater. So comfy, and so big you could curl up inside some of these treasured looks. Okay, not that big, but you get the point. The slouchier, the better.

Whether it be a chunky knit, a mock turtle neck, a cardigan, or a feminine shrug, I am loving it all and wanting it all this winter. I know you have seen the big sweater over skinny jeans with ankle boots look on Pinterest. I’ve seen it more than a dozen times and I still crave every single one of those classic cable knits that are pinned, repinned, and pinned again atleast a zillion times.

Sweaters are one of the major players of this season and they are more than desireable because of their functionable wear and versatility. You can layer your crewneck sweaters with a collared shirt for the office or layer under a playful jacket with skinny jeans and booties for the weekend. You get bonus points in my book if you can pull off the chunky sweater + skirt look (also seen on Pinterest).” – LWW

Windy City Weekend

Cheers To The Weekend

A Little Look Back At Chicago Adventures

This past weekend I had the pleasure of enjoying some pretty amazing company in the wonderful city of Chicago. To celebrate the 30th birthday of Evan’s brother (Hunter), the Sharp family took over the streets of the Windy City. All thanks to Lindsay (the girlfriend of the birthday boy), we had a blast and ate some of the BEST food ever.

This is the first of many “thank yous” to Lindsay and the Sharps. Thank you for not only a wonderful time, but yet another excuse to share an adventurous weekend with my handsome boyfriend. xo
