JEANS | SWEATER | BAG | SLIP ONS old but love these  | SUNNIES 

It is finally warming up here in New York and I could not be happier!! Last weekend my girlfriend and I decided to try out a new donut shop that opened up near us. The donuts were so good, you had a choice between their creations or you were able to create your own {how cool is that!!}. Creating our own seemed a little overwhelming so we decided to try three of theirs and split them…we were not disappointed.

This look is the perfect weekend around town outfit! I  was so happy the I was break out my slip ons and this sweater is so comfortable  but what I need to talk to you about are my jeans. I hate shopping for jeans because I’m very picky with how I like them to fit but these are perfect and they are so comfortable. I will admit I was not the first one to hop on the black jean tread when I was in high school but I truly believe that they are a closet stable!

I have started to feel that I wear some combination of black and white almost every day so my fashion goal for the spring is to add more color into my daily wardrobe!

 


Weekend Vibes

I know everyone looks forward to the weekends but I don’t think I fully appreciated them until recently. There is nothing I look forward to more than spending the majority of Saturday in bed {no shame} shopping and watching Netflix. Lately I have been catching up on Gossip Girl and shopping for the perfect work to happy hour outfits! One of the hardest things about not living in the city is having plans Friday night and trying to find an outfit that is both work appropriate and happy hour friendly!

Gone are the Friday Nights out in sky high heels and mini skirts {don’t know how I survived the cold dressing like that}. The good news is chances are you are not the only person coming right from work so no need to feel out of place. I usually switch out my commuting go tos like my heavy jacket and tote for lighter options like this and this. A LBD or a simple top and skinny dress pants are easy work appropriate options and can be dressed up with fun jewelry.

Now shoes…this has been the biggest struggle for me. I have realized that if and when I do move to the city my obsessive shoe collection is not going to fit in the most likely micro apartment I will choose to live it. That being said that is at least year away and I love shoes so I keep buying them… Finding shoes that are cute and don’t kill my feet while commuting has been my biggest struggle. I have been opting for my OTK boots or simple black booties.

**side note**I know to everyone in the blogging world it is already spring and they’re blogging about spring clothes and cute wedges but lets be real I live in New York its still 30 degrees so booties & sweaters it is.

any who…my weekend consists of cocktails on Fridays, bed on Saturday and I am totally okay with that!

 

 

 

 

 


Did someone say snow?

Well Jonas has passed through and left a beautiful mess in his wake. If you’re wondering who Jonas is well…he would be a storm that dumped an insane amount of snow up and down the east coast.  Yesterday was spent snowed in sipping wine and watching as much Netflix as possible {it was pretty amazing not going to lie} The blizzard like conditions have finally passed so we decided to venture out and explore the beautiful winter wonderland!

Now that I am commuting into the city everyday I wanted to get a really good pair of snow boots for the season and boy did I buy them right in time. After doing some serious research I decided on the Sorel Winter Carnival boots and am seriously obsessed.They were so warm on our little adventure and are super comfortable!

I’ll be cuddled up watching Netflix for the rest of the day…does it really need to be Monday tomorrow?

I have to admit I have been loving all the hype over OTK {over the knee} boots but the price of the “it” pair is just way beyond what I am willing to spend. When saw these and the price tag I knew I needed them in my life and OMG I am so happy they are!!! Can we just talk about how much longer they make your legs look. They are a great pair of boots to add to your collection because of how much you can dress them up or down. This is a more casual look you could wear for all the up coming holiday parties and dinners but you could so easily pair the boots with a skirt or dress for a more formal evening.

Speaking of holiday parties…It’s almost time! The big day we have been shopping and decorating and spreading cheer for is just 8 days away! We have just about finished prepping at my house and I’m so happy to say the my sister is home for a few weeks from college. I have a girls days filled with shopping and brunch planned with her and my Mom this weekend in the city. I have been in a few time for drinks with friends but I’m excited to spend time with them walking around, seeing the Macy’s windows and the rest of city all dressed up!

Hope you all have an amazing weekend, thanks for stopping by!
