HAPPY HALLOWEEN

HAPPY HALLOWEEN 2014

Have A SPOOK-Tastic Friday!!!!

Last year was my very 1st Halloween in the City and boy was it scary/exciting in more ways than one. This year I plan to fully embrace the madness, considering I have last year under my belt. From the parade, to the unique costumes, and rather large parties and raves, I am all “game day” ready for Halloween 2014.

Although I am still putting last minute touches on my costume (per the usual), I will be thrilled to share come Monday. For now, here’s a #FlashbackFriday and my most recent and favorite costumes. Shoutout to my Kentucky Girls pictured below. I miss y’all like crazy, every Halloween!

Have fun & be Safe!

Fresh Fit

For A Girl On The Go

She’ll Need Sneakers & More 

“I never dreamed about success, I worked for it.” – Estee Lauder

In my opinion, a busy girl is a determined girl. I love being “on the go” especially in New York City. It gives you a feeling of empowerment and a sense of drive/motivation. Since my work-life in NYC is not so corporate, a sneaker look is a perfect look. I’ve been spotted on Instagram a lot lately in my variation of sneakers, so it lead me to style this “Fresh Fit”  post. You can easily pull off a similar look with many pieces in your current wardrobe. If you’re missing an essential or two, try one of these hot picks below!

Thanksgiving Countdown Pt. 1

Let’s Start Talking Table Decor

Gather, Eat, Drink, & Give Thanks In Style 

With a little under a month left until Thanksgiving (no pressure), I’m trying to get in the spirit ahead of time. Again, no pressure… but who doesn’t love a good table-scape? During the holidays when we’re all together again, the table is essentially where the gathering starts and ends.

So make it fun, and make it inviting. Most importantly, make your table special. Below I’ve gathered a few ideas to get you started. First things first, don’t spend too much money. Be resourceful and use what you have in a new creative way. When you look closely, each of these tables below are pretty simple with a few tools and a little arts and crafts time. Now let the Thanksgiving countdown begin!

Pumpkins, Apples, & Animals, OH MY!

A Weekend of Adventure

In Upstate New York 

Pumpkin Patch Season is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. There’s just something about the patch/orchard atmosphere that makes the adventure so special. I won’t lie, I’ve been complaining a lot lately about how I wouldn’t get to go this year (considering I didn’t go last year either). Thank goodness for my kind-hearted boyfriend for flying all the way to NYC to take me on the most perfect weekend adventure “Pumpkin Patching”. I don’t feel I need to write too much this post, as the pictures say it all. Thank you Cameron and Phil for being our adventure buddies, and to Evan for keeping my life more entertaining than ever before. xx

It’s Back…

The Backpack Everyone Once Had To Have

Is Back With A Brand New Twist 

I remember, do you? Yes I’m referring to the Kate Spade backpack that was seen on nearly every girl’s back, and found nearly every where you turned. It was small, but that bag sure was mighty. It had its very own way of sticking around on the top trends list, just before hobo style and large tote bags stole its thunder.

I’ll never forget my first Kate Spade backpack. I spent hard-earned graduation money on that bad boy and I never let it out of my site. Through most of my college days I held onto it, even as it began to blend in with the back of my closet. Eventually I gave mine to a new home through consigning, so long live that trusty bag.

But my oh my, am I tempted again. Have you seen this beauty below ↓? The brand NEW nylon collection at Kate Spade is pretty sweet, incorporating the chicest matte nylon and giving the collection a modern twist. I’ve also shared a list of some of my favorite pieces from the new collection. Why not? We all need a handbag that will last us through the years.

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
