I’m sure you all know we are getting a major storm here in NYC – Juno is upon us! It actually isn’t as bad as predicted, at least not here in the city, but definitely enjoying a nice cozy day in!

Perfect time to take advantage of some online shopping sales and get some new stuff for either an upcoming warm weather vacation, or to help transition from winter to spring.

Berry, Black, and Leopard

Happy Hump Day! Hope everyone had a good weekend, especially if you got Monday off!

Wore this last week to drinks with the girls, trying to break out of my black pants rut – so obviously a black skirt seemed like a good choice! I added some leopard print mid-heels and a sparkly necklace to jazz up the basics. This necklace is from an amazing service called Rocksbox – you pay $10 a month and get 3 pieces of fabulous jewelry. You can keep as long as you want, and then when you are ready for some new stuff just send it back and you will get 3 new pieces! And if you love something you can purchase it as well. Get your first month free with code amybff35. Give it a try!

Off to run errands, thanks for stopping by!

Black, Red, and Sparkles

Happy Hump Day! Where has the week gone?

Last night I wore this to book club, this month our book was MWF seeks BFF – I totally related to it and thought it was pretty good. It is about one woman’s search to find a new BFF after moving to Chicago with her husband.

I was feeling inspired to mix things up last night and decided to try some new layering. I ended up really loving this outfit! I’m not big on button up shirts usually, but really liked this one with a sparkly collar layered under this dress. My red booties added a splash of color.

Hope everyone is having a great week, thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Year!

Well I’m back after a nice, long blogging break. We had a great Christmas with Michael’s family, and then headed to Jamaica to ring in the New Year, and enjoy some warm weather. It was my first time there but definitely not my last. We stayed at the Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay and it was absolutely fabulous.

Here are some pics from the end of December…

I wore this winter white outfit to the holiday Pops show at Carnegie Hall. Labor Day is no reason to stop wearing white pants! To see more fun winter white looks pop over to Rich Life on a Budget’s “How I Wear My: Winter White” post.

Holiday Lace

Last night I had some of my New York ladies over for a fun holiday party and gift exchange! So lucky to have such a great group of friends here in my new city.

I got these pants last year at Loft and they are perfect for a festive evening, and I’m loving lace right now, so I paired them together for a fun holiday outfit. I also decided to take advantage of staying in for the night by wearing my sparkly wedding shoes, that are a bit too high for me to wear out much now.

Hope you all are having a lovely holiday season so far!

Navy and Orange

I’ve been slacking on the outfit pictures lately but I wore this a few weeks back, on an unusually warm night, to have dinner with our friends that were in town from Seattle. We went to this adorable place called Rosemary’s in the West Village that is one of my favorite spots.

A blazer was all the layering I needed so I paired this navy blazer with gold buttons over an orange blouse – one of my favorite color combos!

Holiday Fun

Ahh, life has been so crazy lately! On top of moving, then having family in town, I had to spend last week in Phoenix for work. Now ready to finally enjoy being settled in our new place! I’ve got the Christmas decor up and I’m ready for all the fun holiday events!

Saturday night we headed to the New York Botanical Gardens with our friends’ Liz and Jim for the holiday train show they have there. It was so cool! And fortunately indoors as it was raining buckets. I didn’t make the smartest shoe choice for the evening…. wellies would have been more appropriate.

Still had a great time though, and I was cozy in my new Lou & Grey sweater for the evening. I jazzed it up with my favorite leather leggings and my plaid purse and red booties added a festive touch.

Thanks for stopping by!

This tee dress is cute and easy to wear, just throw on with ankle booties. I took a small.

I’m loving the Lou & Grey line for stylish lounge wear and this tunic is so cute. Took a medium for a more relaxed, longer fit.

This sweater is so warm and cozy without being itchy, and I have very sensitive skin. It does shed a small amount but I love it. I took a medium for a longer fit.

Very cute ankle pants with subtle pattern, easy to dress up or down. Took my regular Loft size 4.

These ponte pants are very comfy and the leather trim is adds a luxurious touch. Took my regular Loft size 4, but if you are between sizes, size down.

Sort of obsessed with this velvet romperimageService (8)imageService (8), but haven’t been able to try it on.

Everyone ready for Thanksgiving? I’m very excited to be hosting this year, my mom and brother will be visiting, and we have a few friends coming as well. I’m leaving my mom in charge of the turkey (that’s what mom’s are good at right?!), but here are the sides I’m planning on:

Grain Free Stuffing

Paleo Green Bean Casserole

Paleo Pumpkin Pie

Slow Cooker Buttery Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes

Coconut Flour Muffins

Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Paleo Cranberry Sauce

Yum Yum!

Wore this outfit to dinner on a cold Friday night, perfect to break out some faux fur. I love this tunic button down for layering, it was a great find and is 40% off now! I’m wearing a small.

Hope all my American readers have a fantastic Turkey Day! I’m very thankful for all of you who visit my little blog, it truly means a lot!

Sweatshirt with Jewels

Happy Monday!

Last week I headed to happy hour with my girlfriends and wore this cute and comfy little sweatshirt dress. I love the jeweled front, this dress would be perfect for a casual Thanksgiving. This large wristlet picked up the burgundy color from the jewels so I grabbed it and was ready to go!

Thanks for stopping by!
