Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Happy New Year everyone! I know we are more than a few weeks in here, so I hope everyone’s 2016 is off to a good start. Mine is going really well so far! As I mentioned before, the holidays were a bit rough but I got through them and life is looking up. I had a very relaxing Christmas Eve with 2 sorority sisters, we ate lots of crab legs and I made fresh pasta with meat sauce. Pasta is a special treat for me! I’m so grateful for the sisters I have here and all over the country – they really are there for me when I need them.

Then I spent an amazing girl’s weekend in Savannah for New Year’s Eve – such a fun place and it was so nice to get away for a few days. I rented this dress from Rent the Runway that I loved!



I’m sorry I don’t have as much time to blog now, but I decided to stop pressuring myself too much about it, and just be more active on Facebook and Instagram. I will still post here sometimes when it is the best platform for sharing, but I do hope you will follow me on social media where it is just faster and easier to get things out!

Here is an outfit and a recipe link I just got up.

It is so easy to put together a black base and then jazz it up! I picked up this necklace on Ann Taylor super sale and you can get it now for $22!

This recipe for a low carb pepperoni chicken bake was so easy and delicious, give it a shot!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

We had a beautiful Sunday in Brooklyn last weekend and headed out for brunch with friends. It was a little cool, but warm enough to wear this great sweater without an extra layer.

I’m headed to Nashville tomorrow for my annual girl’s trip – I’ll be back next week!

Remember – Life is Short, Shop Often! : )

Headed out for happy hour with the girls last night, still freezing here but decided to brighten things up with this fun blue blazer – I love this color! Added some texture with leather leggings and some sparkle with a statement necklace. Can’t wait to also wear this blazer with white jeans and a printed blouse for spring – it’s a great transition piece and even better, only $25. I’m typically a medium in F21 blazers but took a large in this. It could be a little smaller, but the medium was a little too small. And being able to move your arms is important I think.

Blazer – F21, Blouse – Lord and Taylor, Leggings – Hue, Shoes – Express (similar), Bag – Michael Kors, Necklace – Premier Designs
