Winter Maxi

Happy Friday! I'm still feeling a little under the weather, but thankful it's the weekend so I can rest. I wanted to share this look I wore last weekend - one of my girlfriends started her own dress line, and I couldn't wait to wear her first one, "the winter maxi." It has been so cold here, so I definitely had to layer with a flannel and leather jacket, but it has long sleeves with gold zippers on the wrists - I'm obsessed. A lot of people are unsure of how to wear a maxi in the winter, and this is one great option - I wore wedge booties with it to give me a little extra height. This dress could easily transition to night by swapping the booties for pumps, and just removing the layers - simple and sleek. Have a great weekend ladies!

The Turtleneck - Yay or Nay?

I have a love/hate relationship with turtlenecks - I can never decide if they look cute or too "grandma-ish." I paired this one with boyfriend jeans and my favorite Sam Edelman booties for a younger feel. I'm still unsure of the look - what do you think?


The New "It" Sneaker

Happy Hump Day, lovers! I'm feeling under the weather today, so I'll be spending the entire day on the sofa drinking hot water with lemon, and (most likely) pinning. One trend we are lurrrving for spring is the 'slip-on' or 'slide' sneaker. These babies are everywhere - they are definitely the new "it" sneaker. We have rounded up a few of our favorites for you - my top pick has to be the leopard, with the ivory laser-cut pair coming in at a close 2nd. Which pair is you favorite? Will you be rocking this trend?

Keepin' It Cool

This Current Elliot tee has been on repeat lately. It's so easy to style and I love that a simple v-neck can be dressed up or down. Whenever I wear simple outfits I try to spice it up a little with accessories - I love how the green sunnies looked with the jacket. This military moto jacket is from Zara which I couldn't find online (was on sale) but I linked one that is almost identical below! And as always, I'm rockin' my favorite, Henry and Belle jeans. Have a great day loves! Stay warm!


Polar Vortex

Hello ladies, hope you had a great weekend! Due to the freezing temperatures, we stayed indoors for most of the weekend, but after cabin fever set in, we had to get out for an afternoon. It was lightly snowing, and so pretty! I love snow in the winter...I figure if it's going to be cold, let's at least have some snow. I bought this coat when we moved to NYC, and wear it almost every day - it is so warm, and I'll definitely use it for years to come. I had a lot of questions about this necklace on instagram - unfortunately, it's sold out, but I linked to a similar version below. Have a great day lovelies!

Currently Crushing: Accessories

TGIF! I'm kicking off the weekend with brunch and shopping with a friend, doesn't get better then that! Above are some accessories we've been lusting over lately - lots of statement jewelry, hats and cool shades. I'm especially loving the GiGi New York emerald green clutch which is on sale for $73.50 (originally $105) - such a great deal for a beautiful bag! And how cute are the Dolce Vita peep toe booties? I'm starting to get the itch to buy spring/summer shoes! Hope you have a great weekend!

Casual Blazer

We've made it to Thursday, ladies! Only one more day until we can sleep in, drink (too much) wine, and do nothing but sit on Pinterest all day if we choose - ahhh the weekend. Here's a look I wore last weekend when my friend was in town - I kept a blazer casual with a vintage tee and Chuck Taylors. I actually transitioned the outfit into the night by swapping the tee for a white tank and statement necklace, and the Chucks for pumps - super simple. Have a lovely day!

Color-Blocked Sweater

I kept my outfit simple yesterday - I was too cold to put any effort into it! This is my favorite sweater I bought this winter, its so warm and feels like I'm wearing a blanket - which has been perfect for the freezing temps. I had been eyeing these Sam Edelman booties for quite some time but didn't want to fork up $225 for them. Luckily there was one pair left at Nordstrom, size 7 and on sale - it was fate and I obviously couldn't pass that up! They are pretty much sold out on every website but Urban Outfitters has a couple sizes left so get them while you can! Happy hump day ladies!


Neutrals & Giveaway Winner

Hi ladies! Hope your week is off to a great start - I had such a good time with my best friend here in NYC, we packed a lot in to a few days. We spent a lot of time eating at a few of my favorite restaurants - Nobu, Dos Caminos (where we saw NeNe from Real Housewives), and Isola Trattoria & Crudo Bar (at the Mondrian SoHo - you may have seen on Instagram - it was stunning!), getting mani/pedis (I'm loving the gray), and exploring the city. Anyway, we are back to our regularly scheduled life today, but I'm wishing we could rewind and get back to the weekend.

I wore this neutral look over the weekend - I love pairing neutrals together, it's hard to go wrong. I finally found a pair of skinny jeans I can work with (I really hate low-rise, these are mid/high-rise), and I've been wearing them a lot. I scored the sweater on sale at Zara, and it's super warm and fuzzy with a high neck. This is a very easy look, but I love how put together it looks. PS - I'm including both high and low-end options for recreating this look below (we've had a few requests for this), for girls on every budget!

In other exciting news, we have a winner from our GiGi New York Giveaway...
Congratulations! GiGi New York will be contacting you soon - enjoy your clutch!
