Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Tag Archives: Express

Went out for karaoke with my sorority sisters this past Friday, so much fun! It was still freezing out but this hot pink sweater was the perfect way to add some color to a black skirt, tights, and booties – a great winter to spring transition piece. I use this polka dot clutch all the time to add pattern to outfits as well – one of my favorite items and it works year round.

Hi there! Back from a wonderful week on the beautiful island of St. Lucia! Had such a great time with my husband and in-laws. We stayed at The Landing there which I highly recommend.


It was so nice to get out of this bitterly cold weather and into some new warm weather items!

I absolutely love this new Eliza J maxi dress – now on sale for less than $100! I took a size 6 in this. It has a built in bra that helps make it comfortable and practical.






Received this tropical print sundress from Express just in time to pack it, so glad I did! I’m wearing a medium. I also found these nude wedges just before we left as well and I love them! So comfy.



I love that this sequin skirt works well for vacation and also for nights out in the city. Skirt here, blouse here. I’m wearing a medium in both.


For the trip home I chose this comfy maxi, love the flattering print. Wearing a medium, but I did have it taken up a bit at the shoulder and needed a hem.



Thanks for stopping by! Hope all of you in this cold have a warm weather vacation planned too!

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.

Happy Shopping! Stay warm and safe if you are in the northeast!







Last night we headed out in the West Village with my in-laws for dinner, one of my favorite areas of the city. It is starting to cool off here, and I find leather or faux leather to be perfect for summer to fall transitional wear. I added an extra pop of color to the teal and cream palate with my purple purse.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Headed to happy hour with a few girlfriends last week and took advantage of the nice weather to wear my new white vest out. Paired with black jeans and added a hot pink necklace for a pop of color and my polka dot purse to add some pattern. Just like Stacy and Clinton say – color, texure, pattern, shine! Oh how I miss What Not to Wear…

Happy Friday!!

Hope everyone had a great long weekend!

We had a fabulous time down in the Dominican Republic celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary! It was a little bit of an early celebration as our anniversary isn’t until June 18th, but any excuse for a trip : )

My cousin Tami and her boyfriend, who live in the DR, were able to come meet us with their new baby Chloe. She is so adorable!

Thanks for stopping by!

Had the best time in Austin with my girlfriends, they are so much fun!!! The weather was just perfect and our bachelorette had a great time. Plus I got a nice tan, yay!



My favorite outfit was this romper from Express – I want it in another color now! I took a size 8 in this.



Yesterday I went to visit Michael by his office to do some shopping and then we enjoyed a nice dinner. I love this super soft chambray shirt, I paired it with black ankle pants and these adorable little flats with bows on the front.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Friday! Hope you all have a fun weekend planned. Heading out tonight for the husband’s work party and then a fashion/tech meet-up in Manhattan. What to wear, what to wear…

At first with this cropped shirt trend I was like “yeah right”, but I actually really like the look when layered over something longer. The proportions seem very fresh to me.

So inspired by a Pinterest look, I found myself a cute but inexpensive cropped sweater and layered over a tunic blouse. My metallic shoes and a statement necklace added a little visual interest to the black & white.

Anyone else trying the cropped shirt trend?

I didn’t really fall in love with anything from Express this winter, but they have some adorable things for the spring/summer and everything is 40% off now – I think today is the last day of sale so don’t wait!

Here are my favs:

This romper is soooo cute! I ended up taking an 8 in it, so if you are busty I would say size up for sure. The 6 just pulled up too much. Also love the black and white version. 


Haven’t been able to try this on, but love a flattering black jumpsuit.


This white tuxedo vest is so fresh and polished, I took a medium.


Want an easy floral sundress? Look no further. I took a medium.


Dress this uber flattering snakeskin print dress up or down. I took a size 6.




Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hope you’ve all had a good week! Mine has been pretty busy, last night I went to the NYC Chi Omega Alumnae holiday party which was a ton of fun, such a great group of ladies. Maybe I will make some new friends after all : )

Can’t believe Christmas is so close, I still have shopping to do! That’s what this weekend is for I think.

Yesterday I went out into the very cold weather to run some errands and decided my trusty faux fur vest would do a good job keeping me warm. As for the pants, my friend, Silvana, recommended I try these. I don’t do a lot of shopping at American Eagle, but I must say these pants are awesome and very budget friendly. They are true to size, mine are a 4, and if you decide to try them make sure you get a size that is very tight to start, they do give a little.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! So glad the weekend is here!

I spent some time yesterday putting together some more casual holiday outfits, now I just need some events to wear them to! I’m missing my Seattle friends a lot right now, a little sad I won’t get to do any holiday partying with them. But we do have some fun things planned to look forward to so trying to focus on that.

I ordered these red satin pants on whim, thinking they probably wouldn’t fit, but I slipped them on and fell in love! Just like wearing pajamas, but so much chicer : ) I paired with a cozy cashmere sweater and like how the different textures mix. This outfit would be great for a lot of things – a holiday concert, dinner out, or a casual cocktail party.

These pants are so versatile, I put together a 2nd outfit using them and it may be my favorite of the bunch! A fun graphic tee keeps things casual, a blazer adds structure, and a sparkly necklace finishes it off. I think I will wear this when I go out with a friend and her girlfriends next week.

Red, winter white, and emerald, are all fabulous colors and very festive, but why not mix things up with some blues for the season. And paired with white you get a light and bright outfit to stand out in the crowd. I decided to pair a mint sweater that has sparkly sleeves, with my white jeans, and royal blue accents for something a little different. I wore this out with Michael’s co-worker’s for drinks last night.

This outfit is a little bit edgier, and one I would wear any time during the winter! I added a brooch to make it more festive and think it adds some fun contrast.

And finally an outfit with red jeans, a comfy winter white sweater, dressed up with sparkly shoes. Perfect for a casual holiday party.  I think I’m going to wear this to Michael’s office holiday party tonight –  there is going to be karaoke!
