Eight years ago, I met a boy from Kentucky. Call it chance, call it coincidence, or call it serendipity, but he walked into my life and chose to stick around all of these years. I’m sure glad he did. The day we met, I could’ve sworn to you that we had absolutely nothing in common. We were as opposite as could be. We met online and he flew here to visit me from Kentucky. Little did I know, that I would spend years traveling back and forth, during our long distance relationship, and eventually he’d become my Instagram husband (and my real one too).
The sun is shining in NYC, it’s a bit brighter out, and you know what that means? It’s time to transition your wardrobe as well! I know it still may feel a bit too chilly, but I’m telling you to do it! Free yourself from the black winter abyss, otherwise known as your winter closet. Pull out your white denim jeans, pair it with a spring blouse or outerwear piece and it will refresh your look in an instant.
What’s your “go to” look for a night out on the town? It’s probably a little black dress. Am I right? The classic black dress is one of the best staples you can own in your closet. I’m sure you pair it with a fancy pair of heels, a few accessories and an evening bag. Easy peezy! However, today I’m going to show you 3 ways to style your little black dress for several different daytime looks. The great part about this wardrobe must-have, is that it has so much versatility. So pop a squat, grab a latté, and keep on reading!
I spent the weekend wearing very little clothing. Well, let’s just say that my fancy outfits this weekend were few and far between. While I can usually tell you about our weekend adventures, I was sick for the majority of the weekend. My wardrobe consisted mainly of pjs, and well…more pjs. My choice of cocktail for the weekend? I sipped on a chilled glass of water, on the rocks (snooze). I didn’t even grab a champagne glass. My brunch, lunch, and dinners consisted of plain bread (#allofthecarbs). While the sun was shining, and it looked like spring, I watched out the windows, sleeping for hours upon hours. As I’ve mentioned, being home for even an entire day drives me bananas. I can’t handle it. I was itching to get out, and finally on Sunday, I felt a bit better, and headed out into the sunshine.
It’s the color you may avoid most in winter. The one that you question, and the one color that you probably tuck deep into your closet until the the spring or summer. I know, I know. You’ve got this love affair with black clothing right now. I understand. Black feels safe, easy, it’s slimming, and you can hide yourself in it quite well. However, listen up ladies! Stop. Right. Now.
Holiday shopping is in full effect and the stores here in NYC are absolutely packed with holiday shoppers. However, that holiday cheer seemed to fade for me, while standing in line just to walk down the street on Fifth Avenue. These shoppers are no joke! I love the spirit of giving, and of course shopping, so I was beyond excited to be invited to Saks Fifth Avenue’s Press Day.
No, not THOSE booties! I’m talking about one of the hottest shoe styles for Fall. I am in love with the ankle boot style. Pair flat booties with a great pair of skinny jeans, or stiletto booties with a dress, and you’ve added an element of edge to your Fall look. There are so many options from leather, suede, hair calf, studded and buckle detailing, and there are an incredible variety of pop colors for the season. Keep in mind, that regardless of your budget, you can use these fabulous styles as inspiration to find a style that works for you. Check out some of my favorites I’ve found for Must Have Monday.
