Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Black Suede Shoes

Can’t believe it is Wednesday already, where has the week gone!

Friday night we headed out to the opening night of the Carnegie Hall Pops. Their show was based on the music of The Beatles and was fantastic! I love these Sole Society mid-heels and am showing them here dressed, and then below dressed down. They are so comfy, versatile, and stylish.

Last night we headed out for dinner in the West Village with some friends, and I wore these with jeans and this great woven sweatshirt. I love the dressy-casual mix it provides.

We are headed out of town tomorrow morning through Sunday for our friends’ baby’s baptism in Guadalajara – can’t wait to see them all! Hope you all have a great weekend and I will be back next week!

Camo and Leather

Wore this for work and a sorority meeting Wednesday – unfortunately it was raining out so my feet were a bit wet! Oh well, fashion over function : )

So excited for this evening, we are headed to our first show of the season for the Carnegie Hall Pops series – tonight it is music of The Beatles!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend, Happy Friday!

Stripes, Booties, & Shopaholic to the Stars

Monday night I headed to the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon for a party and meet and greet with my favorite author, Sophie Kinsella! She writes the Shopaholic series that I’ve been loving since college.

Sophie was so gracious, taking time with every person there, and I got a signed copy of her new book in the series, Shopaholic to the Stars. I’m only through the beginning, but it is fabulous!

I wore my striped, sort of 60’s mod sweater dress, leggings, and burgundy booties to add a little color. I topped with my trusty quilted leather jacket, which is still going strong after 3 years!

Thanks for stopping by!

Apple and Parsnip Pot Roast

There’s nothing I love more for dinner in fall than a delicious pot roast. And no easier way to make one than in the slow cooker!

I threw this together in about 5 minutes yesterday and we had an amazing Sunday dinner 6 hours later!

Ingredients:

3 pound chuck roast (or any beef roast, I’m sure pork would be delicious too!)

4-5 carrots cut in chunks (or use half a p0und of baby carrots)

1 large yellow onion, sliced

4-5 parsnips, peeled and cut in chunks (I get a bag at Trader Joe’s)

2 gala apples, chopped

1/2 cup applesauce

1/2 cup beef broth

1/2 TBSP crushed garlic

Seasonello Herbal Salt  (love this stuff, if you don’t have just use dried herbs like rosemary and thyme with salt and pepper)

Sea salt and pepper

Directions: 

In the bottom of Crockpot put onion, parsnips, apples, and carrots and sprinkle with herbal salt

Season chuck roast on both sides with salt and pepper and put on top of veggies

Take crushed garlic and spread on side up of roast

Then layer applesauce on top of that

Pour over beef broth

Cook on low for 8-9 hours or high for 6-7

Season to taste as needed

Parsnip Apple Pot Roast

Enjoy!

Black & Booties

Headed out for drinks with my high school friends’, Mario and Elena, last night in my cute new mini dress. This dress is so easy to wear and dress up or dress down. Very comfortable too. I’m taking advantage of this warm weather to do fall looks with bare legs – soon it will be time for tights!

I paired this look with these booties that were a birthday present I picked out on our visit to London in August. Love them!

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

Leather & Sparkles

Headed out to happy hour with some girlfriends and I wanted to get a little dressed up! It is a gorgeous day out, over 70 degrees, perfect to take this skirt for a spin with bare legs.

I came across this little retro crop top at H&M and fell in love – plan to also wear it with my black fluid pants. I’ve had these shoes less than a month and already had to have the heels replaced – they are so comfortable! (and only $30!)

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Suede

Happy Friday! It has been a super stressful week at work and I am so ready for the weekend. Tonight we are headed out with our Childfree meet-up group, and then tomorrow I have a brunch and a museum trip with my sorority group – they keep me busy!

I’ve shared my love for Hue leggings many times on this blog, and I’m so excited to take my new “ultrasuede” pair out for a spin. Love the rich purple color (I also got them in black), so comfortable and perfect for fall with heels or boots.

Fall Favorites

Did everyone have a great weekend?! Had a fabulous night out on Saturday with friends at Park Avenue Autumn, a restaurant that changes seasonally. One of my favorite meals in NYC so far – if you are in the city then go! Sunday I headed to brunch and to see Gone Girl with the sorority girls. I loved it! Anyone else seen it yet?

I finally figured out the focus issue on my camera I think, so hopefully can have more outfit posts resume. But I’ve been doing some fall shopping and wanted to share some of my favorite finds so far.

This dress – get it. You may never take it off. I took a small.

Also love this dress, so comfortable and cute. For my friend Alicia who always asks me to shop for her – this would look fab on you! I took a small but would size down if you are between sizes.

This sweatshirt is so much fun, size up, I took a medium

You would never know this skirt is faux leather – seriously adorable

If Loft pants fit you well, then try their new denim leggings, love them! I took a 27.

This blouse is GORGEOUS!  I took a small.

These fluid pants I wore recently on the blog are a fall fav, and I love the olive green color too.

I love a printed pant and these are so cute with a great fit.

So glad I found this basic button down in a tunic length – perfect with all of my Hue leggings! Took a small.

I fell in love with this lace blouse - the back is just stunning. Definitely size up – I actually ended up with a Medium Tall, but I couldn’t even get the small over my shoulders.

This faux leather front sweater is easy to wear with so many things. I took a medium.

Touch of Plaid

Happy Friday! So excited for the weekend! Heading to see Gone Girl with my sorority sisters on Sunday and i can’t wait.

Wore this outfit last Thursday night out to dinner with my friend April. It was a day that was definitely feeling like fall so I pulled out my plaid clutch to mix things up.

Sometimes it is nice to just work around jeans and a white blouse, adding fun accents with accessories – an easy outfit formula when you don’t know what to wear!
