Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Fur Vests, Boots, Grey Jeans, and a Recipe

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! So I asked for some ideas on things to post about on my Facebook page yesterday and had some requests! I think I am covering most of them here, faux fur vests, boots, and grey jeans for girls with some curves. My mom asked for casual holiday outfit ideas so will work on that, and my friend Piper asked for recipes. This single girl isn’t doing much cooking these days – however I did just make a delicious stew and I didn’t take any pictures but will post the recipe at the bottom of the post – it is for a slow cooker sweet potato, apple, and chicken stew and it was delicious!

Thanks for stopping by, happy shopping!

Colored Leather

Happy Friday everyone! I’ve got a fun weekend planned here. Headed to Carnegie Hall tonight with 3 girlfriends, then tomorrow brunch with a few out of town guests, and Sunday I get to meet my friend Liz’s baby for the first time! Hope you all have some good things in the works as well.

Thanks to our fab receptionist Carly for snapping these pics when we headed out of work last night. I randomly popped into a New York & Company store a few months back while I was killing some time and found this dress that I adore! The faux leather is so luxurious, and I love that it is a color other than black. Sort of a greyish purple. I got lots of compliments! And I love this A-line shape, flattering on just about anyone. I hadn’t shopped there in ages, but I must say they have some fabulous things and very affordable prices!

You can purchase my dress here, I’m wearing a size 4 so I would say sizing runs the same as Loft. Faux Leather Dress – $53.97



And here are some other favorites that incorporate colored leather – so chic for fall!

The biggest challenge with this new job will be finding time to take photos! There will be iPhone and mirror pics for awhile here until I get a new camera and settle into a routine, sorry about that. Our wonderful receptionist Carly snapped this for me quickly! I’m wearing a dress that has been hiding in my closet for a few years now, it is perfect for the transition from summer to fall. I plan on wearing it in the winter with black tights layered over a black turtleneck perhaps, and I love a houndstooth print. This dress was found at a boutique in Austin, but I found a few similar ones on Amazon for you!

Old Navy Fall Picks

Hello Everyone! After an extended absence I am finally back and will do my best to start blogging more regularly again. A lot of changes have happened in my life recently that explain the time off.

Sadly, Michael and I have split up. While this has been very difficult, I know in the end it is the right thing for both of us. We had a lot of good times together and I have no regrets about the time we shared, but I’m now moving forward here in NYC on my own. I’m very grateful for the incredible support I’ve received from friends and family. I’m now getting settled in a cute little studio on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I’ve also taken a new job as an Executive Assistant at a private equity firm in Midtown East and I’m loving it. My wardrobe will now lean a little more business casual. I hope you all will follow along for my adventures as a single girl, trying to look good on a budget, in the city!

We are having abnormally warm weather here still, but it is supposed to be cooling off next week and fall is fast approaching! Old Navy has some great items out right now to help transition to the next season without breaking the bank. Use code ENJOY for 30% off your women’s purchase!

Gingham in Nantucket

Sorry for the extended absence, life has been a little crazy lately. Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing 4th of July. We spent last week on the beautiful island of Nantucket with friends, so much fun!

For a trip into town I wore my new favorite gingham shorts that you can get for just $25 right now! I love the retro feel with the slightly high waist and nautical details.

Here are some other fun pics from our trip, thanks for stopping by!




French Country

Hope everyone had a lovely Summer Solstice and Father’s Day weekend! We headed out with my in-laws to the Hudson Valley for a beautiful lobster dinner in the vineyards at Millbrook Winery. We had such a good time last year we made sure to go again. Such a wonderful experience if you are in the area, it is an annual event.

Despite possible rain, I ventured out in this new maxi dress that I loved so much I couldn’t wait to wear. You can wear it on or off the shoulder, the material is so soft, and it runs true to size – I’m wearing a 4. And guess what – it is 50% off today! Get it while you can!

Happy Monday!

Little White Dress

It is heating up here in NYC and all I want to wear is light and breezy dresses! Was so excited when this beautiful LWD showed up at my door from Forever 21! Dress it down with flat sandals, or up with colorful heels. This exact one has a waitlist currently, but I found a few others for you that are really cute too!

Pink and Print

Wearing lots of Old Navy today, and you know what that means – great prices! Anyone else have a hard time finding the perfect tank? Not too tight, not too baggy? Well I’ve finally found it and at this price you can get it in all the colors of the rainbow it fortunately comes in. I’m somewhere between a small and medium in tops at Old Navy but went with a small in this as I wanted it for shorts and skirts so a little more fitted. And these shorts – so comfy! Get them while you can! I’ve also been wearing these sandals non-stop – on sale at Nordstrom Rack and I’ve linked to a similar pair that is available in more sizes.

Thanks for stopping by!
