Pretty In Pink.

Pretty In Pink.

Happy Hump Day babes. 

Can you believe that we are only a little over a week away from Valentine’s Day? I feel like it was JUST Christmas. The days seem to fly by more and more as we get older, but that means one day closer to spring! 

I never know what to wear on Valentine’s Day. Do I wear something that SCREAMS hearts and flowers? Or, am I more subdued, and just put subtle accents of pink or red throughout the look? For today’s post, I’ll be sharing option 2, as I’ll be spending this Valentine’s Day with my gal pals at one of our favorite rooftop bars. So subtle will be key!

Today’s Look:

Tank – I am wearing a size medium, for my chest. This versatile tank goes perfectly with everything -from work to play, from winter to summer, and everything in between. It is always incredibly comfy. 

This tank comes in sizes XS – XL.

Metallic Midi SkirtI am wearing a size small. I’ve worn this midi skirt so many times, and I love that you can dress it up with the silk tank and heels, like I paired it with above. Or you can dress it down with an oversized sweater and sneakers. 

This skirt comes in sizes XXS – XL.

Hot Pink TrenchSadly, my trench coat is from last season….BUT I was able to find a very similar one. I’m not going to lie, I think I’m going to purchase this one as well! So cute!

Heart – Shaped Clutch – How adorable is this bag? I always love finding novelty handbags. No one will ever have the same one, and you will always be one-of-a-kind. While this bag is perfect for Valentine’s Day, you can use it all the way through the summer.

Block Heels – I am wearing a size 7, and these block heels are truly one of the comfiest pairs of dress shoes that are in my closet. They are also a very versatile shoe, and you can wear them throughout the entire year. 

They come in sizes 6 – 11 as well as half sizes.

Have a wonderful night!

Cozy in Pink.

Happy Saturday!!

Nothing says the weekend like cozy sweaters and accessories.

Speaking of cozy, for today’s post this sweater and pom pom beanie are perfect for those chilly winter days and nights. Or when it is snowing and all you want to do is stay inside but you have to go to work, this sweater is perfect for the office; and it is so toasty. I am also all about the cozy winter accessories, like this beanie, which has been on trend for the past two years, and it looks like they won’t be going out of style any time soon.  

Today’s Post:

Pink Sweater – I am wearing a size medium in blush. I always go up a size in sweaters at Target as they tend to run a bit small. I have already worn it to work with leather leggings for a dressier look and of course, dress them down with denim. 

This sweaters comes in sizes XS-XL and in several different colors. 

med_res (13)

High Rise Skinny Jeans – I am wearing a size 4 petite. Being small, it is hard to find pants, especially jeans, that you do not need to have altered or hemmed. I have been able to find three stores where I do not need to have my jeans altered – Madewell, Loft, and of course Old Navy, which is where these jeans are from. I love that Old Navy has always carried pants, not just jeans, in regular, tall, and petite. That way all women of all shapes and sizes can find the perfect pair of pants and the perfect fit. 

 These jeans come in sizes 0 – 18 and in regular, tall, and petite.

Keds – I am wearing a size 7. I have LOVED Keds sneakers since I was a little girl. Remember when you would go into Strideright as a kid? They would measure your feet, and you would always get a new pair of Keds sneakers. Not only are they the comfiest sneakers, BUT they come in a wide variety of colors and styles. They are great for casual Friday at work, weekend errands, and perfect for all 12 months out of the year. 

These sneakers come in sizes 5 – 11 as well as half sizes.

Pom Pom Beanie – Hello cozy accessories! Beanies have always been my “go to” when it comes to winter hats. They are cozy, comfy, and warm. They also wash incredibly well, and never lose their shape or stretch out. Plus, they made for the perfect period on any winter look.

Living Well in Madewell.

Living Well in Madewell.

Happy Tuesday!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. It rained for part of the weekend, but it  definitely felt a lot warmer then it did during the week. I’ll take 40 degree days over the teens and 20’s any day of the week. I think we can all agree on that. 

While I love chunky sweaters, I tend to get very warm in the winter. I try not to wear such heavy sweaters if I know I am going to be wearing my down coat, scarf, and all the other winter accessories. Madewell has the perfect sweaters and flannels for those long winter months, and I find that I never feel overly warm like I do in others.

Did you know that Madewell recycles your old pair of jeans? Just bring in an old pair of Madewell jeans, and they’ll be recycled into insulation for homes for families in need. And you’ll get $20 off a new pair! 

Today’s Look:

Flannel – I love flannels to be oversized, so I am wearing a size medium in Buffalo Check. This flannel is perfect for both work and play. I have already worn it to work with a skirt and loafers. 

This flannel comes in sizes XXS – XL.

Black JeansMine are from last season, but I was able to find almost the exact same pair that are also from Madewell. I am wearing a size petite 4 or 34 in their size chart. I love jeans that button up the front, as opposed to the ones that zip, because the pants lay flatter with buttons. It’s also easier to tuck a tee, blouse, or sweater in. 

The jeans come in in regular, tall, petite and in 33 – 37.

Leopard Mules – I am wearing a size 7, and these mules are SO COMFY!!!! If I could wear them every day I would. I am not going to lie, I may have been wearing them almost every single day since buying them. They are the perfect shoe for work when you don’t want to wear a pair of heels, and they are perfect for the weekend too! They come in sizes 6-9 and in half sizes. 

med_res (5)

Pom Pom BeanieI love cozy hats for the winter. They keep you warm, and they look cute with everything. This hat washes really well, so you won’t run the risk of shrinking that hat. 

This hat is One Size and comes in black and ivory.

When January felt like April.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. The weather this past weekend was absolutely beautiful. It felt like spring in the middle of January. I would love to hold onto this weather all winter long. We spent all weekend outside in the sun, and I love that on warm days in the winter all the restaurants put out all of their outdoor seating so lunch was spent outside watching the tourists go by. 

While I do not mind winter, I do mind the wind and the snow and slush….maybe we won’t have that this winter? A girl can dream! It was nice not to be bundled up and feel like a marshmallow rather then a person. For today’s post I’ll be sharing a few faves of mine when the temperature is mild, and you can leave the layers at home. 

Today’s Post:

Teddy CoatI am wearing a size small, in Beige, and not only is it cozy, but it truly is really warm and is perfect for layering underneath. These coats come in an array of styles and colors. Since I am petite I like the shorter coats, but if you are taller you would look great in the mid-length Teddy Coat as well. 

med_res

Oversize Sweater – I am wearing a size small in Heather Grey. I love a great oversize sweater. They go with everything; jeans, chinos, a skirt, and so much more. They are also a favorite of mine. Since they are so warm, I do not have to bundle up so much underneath, so that is always a win in my book. 

This sweater comes in sizes S – XL and in several different colors.

Leather Skirt – I am wearing a size 2, and this is the perfect transitional piece that you can wear all year round. Comes in sizes 0 – 12. 

med_res (2)

Booties – I am wearing a size 7 in Beige. I have always loved pointed toe booties. I feel like they are a bit dressier and add the perfect finishing touch. I’ve been looking for a silver pair, as I threw away my old ones and I have yet to find a pair that I love as much. These are a close second though! They come in sizes 5 – 10 as well as half sizes.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Decking the Halls.

Hey guys!

I am so sorry that I have been MIA for the past two weeks. First, I had a horrible sinus infection, so I was down for the count. This led right into Thanksgiving week, which is always hectic for everyone. However, I am feeling better, and back on track with everything. This time of year always seems to go by in a blink of an eye, and we sometimes forget to just take a second to live in the moment, and enjoy all that the season has to offer. 

This is also the time of year when we have so many social gatherings and shopping to do. Well, I am here to help make that part a little less stressful. Throughout the month I’ll be sharing some of my fave looks for the season that range from casual to dressy. Did I mention Christmas sweaters and accessories???? Yes, I am not afraid to wear a Christmas sweater, or carry a Elf cross-body. We’ve gotta be festive! 

For today’s look I’ll be sharing  a cute, yet cozy and comfy, outfit to do all of your holiday shopping in. 

Today’s Look:

Oversized SweaterMy sweater is from the end of last winter, but I was able to find a very similar one in the same color and cable knit material. I am one of those people that gets very warm very easily, so this chunky sweater provides just the right amount of warmth for those crazy cold days that lay ahead. 

This sweater comes in sizes S-XL and in several different colors.

Jeans – I am wearing a size 26, and while mine are from last year, I was able to find the same pair just in a different color. I love that they button up the front, so that they lay flatter, and it makes it easier to tuck your shirt in.

They come in sizes 23 – 32. 

med_res (10)

Pointed Toe Mule – I am wearing a size 7. These mules are so incredibly comfortable, and they provide great support.

They come in sizes 6 – 11 as well as half sizes.

med_res (11)

Christmas CrossbodyOkay, so my bag is 3 years old….BUT I was able to find a similar bag that is sure to get you into the Christmas spirit.

I have also linked my favorite clutch company called, “Can’t Clutch This” that I have been shopping with for the past few years. It is subscription based, and you get a new fun clutch each month. They range from pop-tarts, to a pencil, to a glittery disco ball for NYE! Did I mention that they also had a pizza clutch???

Have a wonderful day!

Hello Vintage.

Hello Vintage.

Happy Tuesday! 

What is up with the weather? 60’s in the city yesterday, then freezing temps tomorrow, and then back into the 50’s! We are all going to be sick by the weekend due to the changing temps hahaha. While I do love the first snowfall, I am not so sure if I am ready for it just yet, but at least it will look pretty! The city is already starting to decorate for Christmas, and the snow always looks like glitter on top of all the twinkling lights throughout the city. 

This constant change of weather also makes it incredibly difficult to figure out how to dress. I have all my winter gear out and ready to go. But you bundle up and get hot halfway through the day, or in my case, when I get to the subway…haha. I have the perfect wool coat for days like this, when it still isn’t cold enough to wear your down coat, but not warm enough to just wear a jacket. My mom gave it to me when I moved to the city three years ago (thanks mom), and she had it for over 10 years! I get more compliments on this coat then I do on anything else. While I know this coat is old, don’t worry, I found four similar ones that are also from Ann Taylor. 

Today’s Look:

Coat This coat is almost the exact same as the one that I have photographed. Perfect for those chilly days in November and December, and it is the perfect coat for all of the holiday parties you will attend over the next two months.

This coat comes in sizes XXS – XXL, as well as regular, tall, and petite. 

I’ve also linked three other coats: 

Coat 2 

Coat 3

Coat 4

Turtleneck  – I am wearing a size medium petite in black. When I was little, I really did not like to wear turtlenecks. I don’t think I liked them because I wore a uniform to school, and during the winter we had to wear them, so I think I just wanted a change on the weekends. Now, I LOVE them and I think they are so comfy and cozy, especially during the winter. They also look great tucked into a pair of jeans. Great for casual Friday and a night out. 

This turtleneck comes in sizes XXS- XL, regular and petite, and in two different colors.
