Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Category Archives: Informational Blogs – Fashion

Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend!

A sorority sister of mine, Piper, is selling the LulaRoe clothing line now and asked if she could send me some items to review. Well I immediately said yes because I had seen some of the pieces through their Facebook group and was very curious to check them out in person! She sent me 3 items – a  dress, skirt, and a pair of leggings. There are many colors and patterns to choose from in the different items, but only a limited number of each pattern is produced, so if you love something don’t wait! I tried to get outdoor pics but we lost the light too quickly. Thanks to my friend Alice for playing photographer!

I believe this is the “Nicole” dress. I’m wearing a medium here, but guessing a small would have fit as well. The fabric is very comfortable with a good amount of stretch. I thought the cut was very flattering and I loved where the waist hit. Would be very easy to add a belt to mix it up.  I could definitely wear this to work in my business casual environment with the right shoes and accessories, but also a great weekend dress with a denim jacket. It was perhaps a touch long for my personal preference, below the knee can be a tricky length, but a trip to the tailor could fix that, and I do like the longer length with the boots!

Now wearing the “Cassie” skirt, I styled this for a night out on the town. Wearing a small in the skirt here, but would probably go with a medium to wear to work. I loved the fit and length on this for a pencil skirt!

And now for my very favorite of the bunch – leggings!! Seriously, you need a pair of these in your life. Not only does the waist band fit with absolute comfort and no digging, they are the softest pair of leggings I’ve ever touched. Perfect for all your lounging needs! And definitely thick enough for wearing out and about with a tunic as well. I put these on the second I get home everyday. Get yourself some!!!

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!

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

I’m headed to Seattle for my cousin’s wedding on Wednesday and will be there through Memorial Day weekend. Still have to pack so probably won’t get to any more posts until I’m back. I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ending today so don’t wait! They rarely do this, usually you have to spend $125 for free shipping, so the free shipping with no minimum is a great deal. And while they often have 40% off, 50% off definitely sweetens the pot. Use code CYBER50.

I am a big fan of Loft denim and these jeans are the perfect compromise between a boyfriend and a skinny.

My love of Sole Society is no secret! And I’m totally obsessing over some of the new spring/summer shoes they have out. Such fun colors and neutrals, all along with manageable heel heights and reasonable prices – can it get any better! They’ve been selling out a lot lately and not restocking, so don’t wait if there is something you really want. I’m still sad about a striped d’orsay pump I didn’t get my hands on in time… But in good news we are finally getting a glimpse of spring weather here in NYC!

Nahara Small Wedge – these are first on my list!
