Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

I made it back from Nashville! We had so much fun, can’t believe I’d never been there before.

A few weeks back we went to see one of my good friends from high school, Elena, perform in an opera burlesque show – so cool! She’s an amazing opera singer.

I wore a pair of my favorite Old Navy Pixie Pants in this adorable red dot pattern, paired with an old open weave sweater and this denim jacket that is sooooo soft.

Thanks for stopping by, happy hump day!

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.

Happy Shopping!

 


Aren’t dresses just the best? You throw one piece on, maybe add a little jacket and some jewelry and you are out the door. No figuring out proportions and which piece goes with what. And nothing better to keep you cool on a sweltering subway platform. Well no sweltering going on yet, but I’m nothing if not prepared, and I’ve been stocking up on some spring and summer dresses from Old Navy for fabulously low prices! I tend to always order online from Old Navy as they almost always have an extra percentage off there, as well as free shipping and returns for purchases over $50.

Some purchases have gone back, but here is what I’m keeping with sizing info. All of these are on sale now and you can get an additional 35% off today, no code needed!

Jersey Shift Dress – unfortunately this print is out of stock now, but they have it in some cute solids and a stripe! I’m wearing a medium – this dress is less forgiving, I would suggest sizing up unless you want it to be very tight.

ON5

Lace Overlay Ponte-knit Sheath Dress – this is the perfect summer LBD and could even be worn with tights now if you are in a cooler climate. I’m wearing a small.

ON2

Sleeveless Ponte Knit Sheath dress – love the nautical stripe here and pockets! I think this would be perfect for an office setting with a white or navy blazer. I’m wearing a small and may get it hemmed just a bit  (I’m 5’5) .

ON1

 

Striped Ponte Knit Shift Dress – this dress is a little less shapely than the others, but I got such a good deal on it I’m just going to have the tailor nip in the waist a bit, easy fix. It also comes in a navy stripe that is adorable! I love it, or any of these dresses, with this cute cropped denim jacket I picked up at Loft – now 40% off. The denim is so soft and comfortable! Wearing a small.

Sleeveless Poplin Shift Dress – this dress is super light and airy, and I love the color and print. Also great paired with a denim jacket or a white blazer.

Happy shopping and have a great weekend!


We headed out this past weekend with my in-laws for a fabulous weekend in Sonoma! One of my husband’s friends from college was getting married and we were so excited for an excuse to go back after a fabulous trip to Napa we took in 2013.

We stayed at the fabulous Carneros Inn, it was stunning and the service was top notch!

For dinner Friday i wore my orange Cynthia Steffe dress that I absolutely love and can’t wait to wear again once the weather warms up here.

We did a wine tasting tour on Friday that was so much fun! It was a little cooler Friday so I went with a long sleeved blouse and took this cute cropped denim jacket along for an extra layer.

Saturday morning we had brunch with the beautiful Adrienne of Rich Life on a Budget and her husband, Bill. It was so much fun to see them again and we always appreciate Adrienne’s wonderful recommendations on what to see and where to stay in the Napa/Sonoma area. I wore this adorable Lilly Pulitzer striped poncho/wrap. These colors are some of my favorite and it is so comfy! Check out Adrienne’s post here for details on her outfit.

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 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!

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.

So Happy New Year to you all, hope 2015 is your best year yet! Thanks so much for being here!


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!

Pants- Loft (similar), Blouse – Banana Republic (I’m wearing a medium), Shoes – Enzo Angiolini

Here I am with my friend Angela – she got me this super fun bag from Chelsea Market and I love it : )

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!

I’m a big fan of this faux leather mini skirt, last seen here.Mine is a small.

This lace sleeve sweater is perfect to dress up with a skirt for a holiday party. It is on the shorter side (which I prefer for skirts) and I took a medium.

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.

 

This little popover scarf is so cute and would make a great gift.

Piperlime is also having a fabulous sale, 30% off with code “cybersale”! I’m a big fan of their new Piperlime Collection – super cute items with affordable prices.

I’m thinking about pulling the trigger on this southwest blanket sweater – so cute!
