What makes you happy? Is it the big stuff or the small stuff? Maybe it’s both. This past weekend, I spent treating myself to the little things that I love, and it made such a difference in my weekend. I cherish the quiet moments in my days; the ones with the sunshine on my face, walking through the park, while sipping on a latté from my favorite coffee shop. So, I did just that.
Hello Valentines! The holiday of hearts is just 2 weeks away, and I’ve been busy styling a few looks to inspire your fancy night out with your beau, your bestie, or both! Typically I’d sport a little red cocktail dress for a night out, but I’ve got a new look for you. Meet the little red dress’s sassier, and older sister.
Living in New York has made me a bit too comfortable. I’m used to having everything at my fingertips, and walking to find anything I need. I’ll shamelessly admit that if the train ride is too far, or I need to cross town, which means taking several trains to arrive at my destination, I just won’t make the journey. It’s that bad. So I basically forget about the entire East Side of Manhattan. I’ve gotten so used my perfect little neighborhood, that I forget to explore anything else. I’m often made fun of, because I won’t even leave the city unless it’s by plane, with the extreme exception of visiting our besties who currently live in Jersey. Only for them, I suppose.
Oh, the power of social media. Call it fate, call it style inspiration, or a slight case of Instagram obsession, but I recently met a brand new blogger bestie. On a night spent tossing and turning, I gave up on the tossing and reached for my phone (generally a terrible idea). During my sleepless nights, I could be doing something educational such as reading, however I choose to endlessly scroll through Instagram, and chalk it up to trend research.
Palm trees are popping up everywhere, and I mean everywhere in NYC! (Wouldn’t that be a dream come true?)! But I truly mean it. This concrete jungle of ours has embraced palm trees in a big way. Unfortunately, I don’t mean in a realistic, towering way, that would make it easy to lounge while sipping a pina colada in tropical paradise. This is NYC, so let’s be real. This city is a mecca for fashionistas, as well as the fashion industry, so of course the palm tree print is trending this summer.
