Jumpsuits are so in and have been for a few years now. They can be incredibly chic when paired with a great heel. The only problem for me has been the fact that my torso is the length of a football field and no rompers are really made to accommodate that! HA! That said, when I came upon this amazing strapless jumpsuit by Material Girl I couldn’t wait to style it! With only a few weeks left to wear open toed heels I chose this adorable pair of White House Black Market chunky heeled sandals to pair with this look. They are on sale right now so make sure to scoop them up for next season! I also decided to throw on a tuxedo blazer and wear it off the shoulder giving the look an edge. What do you guys think?

Happy Friday all my lovelies!!! If you know me well, then you know my absolute favorite color to wear is green. I know it may not be yours, but the reason I mention it is because I think it is so important to know what colors suit you best. I have very green eyes and I know that when I wear green, they pop. My skin tone and eye color look best with jewel tones and when adding color into my wardrobe I love to add a pop of jewel tone :). Why not look your best always, right? 🙂 I got this skirt last year from Club Monaco and it has become an amazing wardrobe staple. This piece can be paired with a t-shirt and sneakers, or with a blouse and great heels for a workwear look like I did here! What do you guys think?

BURGUNDY & BLUSH

Screen Shot 2015-09-23 at 12.37.17 PM

Happy first day of fall everybody! I know I have mentioned how much I love fall in past blog posts, but today I can officially OFFICIALLY say it has begun. One of my favorite color combinations this season is burgundy and blush. I wanted to put together a cute transitional look that is perfect for the weather change. I struggle sometimes with what to wear when the morning is cool and the evening is warm #fallproblems ;). I have found that by layering, you can stay warm in the AM and cool down in the eve. Just throw this jacket around your waist on your walk home! What do you guys think?

When it comes to boyfriend jeans, I have had a love/hate relationship with them.  It has taken me quite some time to find that perfect pair that I love. Boyfriend jeans have never fit me that well because I have more of an hourglass shape. I would try on a pair of boyfriend jeans and my hips would just fill out all the “relaxed” areas…which was NOT the most fun I have ever had in a dressing room to say the least ;). I had given up on finding a pair that worked for me until I found these amazing jeans at GAP! They are only $79.95 and today GAP is having a 40% off sale!!! They are super comfortable and fit just the way a boyfriend jean should: effortlessly relaxed. I loved pairing them with a casual and comfy tee. This tee is so soft and I love that the back had a little surprise opening which adds a bit of sex appeal to this relaxed look. Finally, I completed the look with one of my favorite pair of heels by Chinese Laundry which are also on sale today! What do you guys think?

It’s the weekend FINALLY! Did this week drag by for anyone else? Friday nights for me, usually mean date night with the hubby so I got excited to share one of my favorite looks for a night out with my love. The best yet sometimes annoying part about NYC is that I walk EVERYWHERE. This only becomes a problem when I decide to wear an awesome pair of high heels. What I try to do is pick a look that will look just a cute with flats which I usually throw and stow in my bag. I loved that this girly look paired just as well with a pair of fresh white kicks as it did with a pair of stilettos! What do you guys think?

Happy Thursday all my lovelies! As cool weather approaches I love to take layering to the next level. I recently purchased a long black vest overcoat from Zara that I am obsessed with. It is THE item to buy when transitioning into cooler weather this season.  I also absolutely loved this skirt and the moment I saw it got super excited to style it. This look is the perfect combination of classy and chic with a little bit of sexy. What do you guys think?!

Well it’s official! Fall has arrived. I’m not sure how the weather is anywhere else but if you are a New Yorker you know what I am talking about. Seemingly overnight the weather changed and I woke up this morning and the air had a chilly bite to it! As I mentioned in my last post, fall is one of my favorite seasons to dress for. It’s all about getting creative with your wardrobe! I love the challenge of styling a summer piece and transitioning it into fall which is exactly what I did for this look! I bought this dress last summer on sale at Mango. I loved the color and the fact that it was almost shape-less making it super comfy, haha ;). I paired it with these awesome Dolce Vita boots which are on major sale!! By adding a suede boot, I took this dress from summer to fall. What do you guys think?

A BURGUNDY FALL

Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 11.00.47 AMWhether I like it or not, summer is officially over which means it is time to enter into Fall 2015 in style :)! As sad as the weather turning may be, my favorite season to dress for is fall! The layering, the boots, the whole season…I just love it! I purchased a new pair of flare jeans and it inspired me to style this fall look with them in mind. I am loving the burgundy trend for fall and I hope you like the look I put together!

I had the awesome opportunity to shoot with one of my very BAAAAST friends the other day and needless to say we had the best time ever. We dressed up in our girly best and strutted around town. Who doesn’t love a highwaisted skirt and tee? Check out where to buy both our looks below :)!

This romper was my favorite purchase that I made on my honeymoon. I just love a romper. It’s an easy one-piece option to throw on when finding a top and a bottom seems like too much to handle. This particular one is awesome because you can throw on a pair of flip flops for a casual look or add a heel for a polished ensemble. I paired this with my favorite summer heels by What for Shoes and a neutral bag that I bought at Macy’s. This bag was my wedding clutch and only cost $30! Happy Friday :)!
