How To Wear White Jeans.

Happy Wednesday!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Father’s Day weekend. Now we are all back to the grind. Of course, it wouldn’t be so bad if the weather was going to be beautiful, but they are calling for rain all week and most of next! However, we all know it will change 40 times between now and then.

Speaking of changing 40 different times, I am the worst when it comes to figuring out what to wear with white pants. Am I going to be hot or cold? Should I wear a t-shirt or sweater? Can I wear them to work? Are they too casual? All of these thoughts are always running through my head when figuring out how to wear them. My mom has it figured out in 5 seconds, me not so much. Now I finally have my 5 go to outfits when wearing white jeans. I am going to share them with you, in case you are like me and it takes you forever to find the perfect outfit.

Today’s Look:

Tank Top - I am wearing a size small. I usually wear a medium, but it runs big so I would go a size down. I love this top because you can wear it to work or dinner, and it looks perfect with white jeans. You can tuck the front of the top in, or leave it out, throw on a pair of heels and you are all set. This top comes in sizes XS- XXL.

White Jeans - I am wearing a size 2 petite, and not only do they fit perfectly, but they do not lose their shape after wearing them or when you wash them. I always hate when that happens, but I am pleased to say it does not happen with these. They come in sizes 0 - 20, as well as regular, tall, and petite.

med_res (13).jpg

Hot Pink Block Heels - I am wearing a size 7. They have a low heel, so they can easily be worn for hours on end, whether at work or at a family event, your feet are sure to feel comfy from morning to night. You can also transition them into the fall, so one less pair of fall shoes you need to buy! They come in sizes 5 - 12, as well as half sizes, and a wide variety of colors and patterns.

4 Other Tops to Wear with White Jeans:

Chambray Top - Chambray tops are so versatile, and they come in a wide variety of styles. They are a transitional piece that you can wear throughout the entire year. I tend to go more laid back when wearing this top, so I pair my white jeans with sneakers for a more casual look.

Oversize Sweater - Oversize sweaters are perfect for those summer days when it is still a bit cool at night, and you do not want to carry a jacket with you. You can dress them up or down, and I just tuck the front of the sweater in, and throw on a pair of slides or mules and I am all set.

Basic Tee - You can never go wrong with a basic t-shirt, easy and effortless. I tuck mine in, add a belt and sandals, and I’m ready to walk out the door.

Blouse - A blouse is perfect for casual Friday at work. I typically do this when wearing white jeans to work. They look great with heels, and they are loose fitting so you are sure to stay cool during those warm summer days.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

All the Colors of the Rainbow.

Happy Friday!

This week has seemed particularity long, and I feel like everyone I have seen, and spoken with, have felt the same way. However, I do not mind long weeks in the summer. That means more time to spend outside, and enjoy the beautiful summer nights in the city that truly NEVER sleeps. I am not sure what my plans are yet for the weekend, but I know it will be something fun!

For today’s look I’ll be sharing probably the cutest dress (in my opinion) for the summer. At first, I thought it might have been a little to 80’s, or Dynasty, with the shoulder pads (that is the text /photo that I sent my mom in the dressing room). Granted, I wasn’t born until the 90’s, and the style during that decade was both stylish and a little crazy; but I just wanted to make sure it looked cute, and moms always give their honest opinion. She loved the dress, so of course it was a keeper. The dress is perfect for summer, and you can even transition the dress into the fall. I am always all about versatility.

Today’s Look:

Floral Dress - I am wearing a size medium, as the chest runs a bit small with the low back, so I would go up a size when trying on, or buying. Zara always has the best dresses. They are extremely durable, as I have many Zara dresses in my closet, that are a few years old and still look brand new. Perfect for work, a summer wedding, or date night! This dress comes in sizes XS - L.

Mules - I am wearing a size 7.5. Sadly mine are from last season, BUT I was able to find a similar pair, and they are by the same designer, so I know that they will be just as comfortable. They come in sizes 5 - 12, as well as half sizes.

Did Someone Say Friday?

Happy Friday!

How was everyone’s Memorial Day weekend? Mine was spent at home on the beach, with my amazing mom, stepdad, grandparents, and sister. The weather was just perfect, and it was a great way to spend the unofficial start of summer. I always love going home to Rehoboth Beach, and any time I am home I find myself not wanting to come back to the city. There is just something about Rehoboth that brings such a sense of peace and tranquility, that you find yourself not wanting to go back to the hustle and bustle of the city.

Today’s post will be short and sweet, so we can all go ahead and enjoy our weekend. Fingers crossed for no rain, because goodness we all have had a wild week weather wise.

Today’s Look:

Denim Dress - I am wearing a size small in the light wash denim, and guys this dress is SO COMFY!!!! Perfect for the beginning of summer, when it is still a bit cool at night and you do not want to carry a jacket with you. Also great for Casual Friday at work. This dress comes in sizes S-L, and in two different shades of denim.

med_res (8).jpg

Monogram Sandals - I am wearing a size 7 in silver. Monogram clothing and accessories have been big for a long time, and I must admit I love it! I have many initial sandals, sneakers, hats, and sweatshirts haha. I blame my mom for getting my sister and I sucked in. However, they make for really cute birthday or bridal party gifts, and it is something that no one else has, unless someone has the same initials as you! They come in sizes 5 - 12 and in a wide variety of shades and styles.

Gearing Up for Memorial Day.

Happy weekend!

Who else is gearing up for Memorial Day weekend? Memorial Day always kicks off the unofficial start to summer. It looks like we are going to have a really nice holiday weekend, when it comes to the weather department, so that means beach, family, friends, and BBQ’s. The beach, and grilling outside, are always my favorite part of the summer.

For today’s blog post I will be sharing a perfect look for the holiday weekend, to show off your pride for the good ole U S of A. While we love the long weekend, we must always remember what the holiday truly is about, which is the brave men and women who have given their lives to keep us safe. So for today’s look I’ll be sharing a comfy look that you can wear all day or night.

Today’s Look:

Striped Top - I am wearing a size small petite, in red and white stripe. This top is perfect for those breezy summer nights, and you can forgo a denim jacket with this three quarter length tee. This top comes in sizes XS-XXL and in regular and petite.

Striped Top.jpg

Scalloped Shorts - I am wearing a size 4, in white, and these have to be one of my favorite shorts for the summer. Not only are they super comfy, but they are long enough to wear to work on Causal Friday. They come in sizes 00 - 14 and in a wide variety of colors.

SALE ALERT: They are taking 60% off all summer items.

Striped Top.jpg


Open Toe Booties - I am wearing a size 7.5 in brown. I’ve had these booties for a while, but I hadn’t really worn them until now and they are really comfy and perfect for summer. The perfect accessory to add to any casual outfit,and the perfect heal height, whether you are petite or tall. They come in sizes 5-10, as well as half sizes, and in brown, black and grey.

Summer Ready.

Happy Hump Day!

Wednesday always means one day closer to the weekend. We are at the halfway point, which is probably why I always like Wednesday’s and Thursdays. Odd I know, but these two days inch us closer to the weekend. Speaking of almost here, it is almost summer, and I cannot wait for warm summer days and nights spent outside just enjoying my favorite time of the year. But don’t be fooled. July and August are actually hell here in NYC; between the humidity and steam from underground, you feel like you are walking behind a bus 24/7. This means lightweight clothing at ALL TIMES. I know many other places throughout the country get just as hot during that time of the year, so that is why I am sharing a favorite outfit of mine that you can buy now. You will be all set for the summer.

Today’s Look:

Off The Shoulder Top - I am wearing a size small, and my favorite part about this top is the embroidery down the sides of both arms. I just love that little detail that adds the perfect amount of fun. You can pair this top with white denim shorts ,or white skinny jeans, and slides or wedges, and you are all set. The breezy fabric of the top keeps you cool and comfy, even on the hottest days. They come in sizes S-L.

https://shopstyle.it/l/237

med_res (4).jpg

Denim Shorts - I am wearing a size 26, and they are the perfect denim shorts for summer. Sometimes I try on shorts that feel so uncomfortable, or they are WAY too short, and I feel like you can see way too much of me. These shorts are the perfect length for all body types, and they are so incredibly comfy. You can pair them with anything, from a tee, to a sweater for cooler evenings outside, and off the shoulder tops like the one I’ve paired with it above. I also love the little fringe detailing along the bottom of the shorts. They come in sizes 23 - 33.

https://shopstyle.it/l/2376

med_res (5).jpg

Bow Slides - Who doesn’t love bows? I am wearing a size 7 in blue, and these sandals are so fun for the spring and summer! They are also incredibly comfy, meaning you can wear them all day and night without any blisters or achy feet. Talk about a win! They come in sizes 5 - 12, and in blue and rose.

Have a wonderful Hump Day!

Pop's of Pink for Spring

Happy Wednesday!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday with their family and friends. I always love going home and spending time with the people I love the most. Plus, going home to the beach is always a major perk. I cannot wait till the summer! I think we all cannot wait until summer, with the winter that we all experienced. I also love being able to shed all those layers of winter coats and boots, and exchange them for bare legs, sandal clad feet ,and the occasional lightweight jacket.

For today’s blog post I will be sharing another favorite of mine, which is white EVERYTHING, and then added pops of color through shoes, handbags, accessories or jackets.

Today’s Look:

White Dress - I am wearing a size small, and this shift dress is perfect for work and play. Just pair the dress with a blazer and heals and you are set for work, or you can pair it with brightly colored shoes and accessories and you are all set for a summer wedding, bridal shower, family party, etc. This dress comes in sizes S-L.

https://shopstyle.it/l/2scw

med_res (2).jpg

Hot Pink Coat - I am wearing size small, and I get more compliments on this coat then I can count. I was a little nervous at first to buy it, as I am very petite, and I wasn’t sure if it would be too long. But I am glad I made the purchase, and the coat falls perfectly no matter what your height may be. This coat comes in sizes XS-XL, and Hot Pink and Yellow.

https://shopstyle.it/l/2sdf

med_res (2).jpg

Sandals - I am wearing a size 7 in pink. Sometimes sandals can be uncomfortable, or they do not provide enough support, but these sandals do both. I wore them all day on Sunday, and was on my feet for most of the day, and I was perfectly comfortable. I think block heeled shoes provide a little bit more support, but I know that some people don’t like this type of shoes. However, I think these shoes would be perfect on anyone, and they provide support. Who doesn’t love that? They come in sizes 5 - 11, and in three different shades.

Ann Taylor Spring Event

Hey guys!

The weather was BEAUTIFUL today, and I wish I could spend the whole day outside, but I guess I can settle for eating lunch outside taking a walk. I also saw that it looks as if this weather is here to stay, which brings a smile to my face, because I, for one, was sick of winter. Along with it finally starting to feel like spring, I was invited to an amazing event at Ann Taylor to launch their spring collection, filled with with bubbly water, cupcakes, photo shoots, and more. Who could ask for a better leap into spring. I had a chance to look at all the new spring fashions, and I know that you will not walk out empty handed. They have the perfect flowy dresses, and structured pants, that are sure to take your work wardrobe to a whole other level.

For my look today, I’ll be sharing the “MUST HAVE” outfit that you will need in your closet. The best part? You’ll be able to keep both the top and pants for years to come, as they will never go out of style, and you’ll never need another pair of pants again.

Today’s Look:

Blouse - I am wearing a size small petite in black,and not only is this shirt incredibly soft, but it looks great paired with jeans, or wide legged pants, or a skirt. This blouse washes well, and the best part is that it comes in regular and petite, and in sizes XXS - XL..

https://shopstyle.it/l/1tZ2

Ann Taylor Event.jpg

Marina Pant - I am wearing a size 2 petite in “Winter White” and they truly are the comfiest pair of pants currently in my closet. They are transitional through all seasons, and they look great on everyone. They come in sizes 00 - 16

https://shopstyle.it/l/1tZ4

Ann Taylor Event 2.jpg

Clutch - We all know the struggle of finding the perfect clutch to carry all of our stuff. Most of the time they are so small that all we can fit in the clutch is a tube of lip-gloss and our ID. However, this clutch holds everything, from a mini wallet to THREE lip-glosses, glasses, and your phone. Talk about the perfect bag!

https://shopstyle.it/l/1t0B

Ann Taylor - Event 3.jpg

Shoes - I am wearing a size 7, in black, and these shoes are not only comfy, but you can wear them all day and all night. From work to play they are the perfect fit. They come in sizes 5 - 11 as well as half sizes, and in two different colors.

H A P P Y ~ F R I D A Y

Not only is it Friday but it is finally feeling like spring and it is here to stay. I seriously thought this day would never come and we’d be stuck in January till next January haha. However, it IS raining today…. While their is nothing like Manhattan in the spring, their is also nothing like my hometown of Rehoboth Beach in the spring. While beach towns are beautiful year-round, their is nothing like spring in summer in Rehoboth. Filled with ocean air, sand between your toes, all the shops bustling with people, the smell of ice cream, pizza, and popcorn fill your senses. Yes, spring and summer in Rehoboth are my absolute favorite and I love being able to come home and experience it again and again. Speaking of home, I am so excited to be going home to celebrate my grandmother’s birthday and being able to spend the weekend celebrating her.

Short trips home call for bringing only the basics and the look I’ll be sharing with you today is the perfect casual look to throw in your bag. While this dress is perfect for traveling it is also the perfect dress for “Casual Friday” in the office when you don’t feel like wearing denim, but still don’t feel like wearing a dress and blazer.

Today’s Look:

Ruffled T-Shirt Dress - I am wearing a size small in black and this dress is so incredibly comfortable that you could probably sleep in it. I don’t recommend it, but you totally could. This dress comes in sizes XS-XL and in petite and regular.

https://shopstyle.it/l/1ulw

Ruffled Dress.jpg

Slides - I am wearing a size 7 in white and I literally never take these shoes off. I must wear them to work at least 2x a week. They go with everything and they are a comfy alternative to heels. They come in sizes 5 - 10 and as well as half sizes.

Pom Pom's for Days.

Hey loves!

Well, while we anxiously wait for spring temps to arrive, that does not mean that we cannot start shopping like it feels like spring and summer. This is the time of year I always find myself wanting temps to be in the 7'0’s and never hit anything below 65. Sadly, this year has not been like that. We are supposed to have temps in the 60’s and 70’s this week, so that means I can finally start to put away the winter coats and boots, and bring out the denim jackets and slides. Plus, New York City is stunning in the spring. The cherry blossom trees, flowers, and the sunsets in the city are just stunning during this time of year.

To enjoy these stunning views, you’ll need the perfect outfit to complete the night. For today’s look I will be sharing a favorite of mine that I purchased in the fall, and I am so excited to be able to wear it soon!

Today’s Look:

Pom Pom Dress - I am wearing a size small, and while sadly mine is out of stock, I was able to find a very similar one from TJ Maxx that I know you will love just as much. It’s perfect for spring, and as we transition into summer. All you need to do is add a denim jacket and sandals and you are all set. This dress comes in sizes XS - L and in two different colors.

Block Heels - I am wearing a size 7 in gold, and these are literally my “go to” shoes in the summer. Whether for work, or an event, these shoes are not only comfy, but they look great with any look. They come in sizes 5 - 12, as well as half sizes.

https://shopstyle.it/l/1tLE

Blogger - Pom Pom 2.jpg

Sunglasses - Who doesn’t love a fun pair of sunglasses? These sunnies add a fun pop of flare to any look, and while they may be oversized, you can still see out of them perfectly. Plus, they look great all spring and summer long. They come in gold, silver, and black.

When Is Spring Again?

Does anyone else feel like winter is never ending?

While the beginning of March always feels that way, I believe that this particular winter has just seemed on going with no end in sight. I just keep looking for the 10 day forecast where it says temps in the 50’s, but I guess we will still be waiting on that for another few weeks. But I am ready!

We are about to hit that transitional period with the weather, where we go from wearing big heavy coats; to having no idea what to wear as far as coats go. If we wear the heavy parka, then we are sweating ,and if we only wear a wind breaker we are freezing! I have the perfect transitional outfit that you can pair with any jacket, and stay comfy all through the month of March, and even into April if the temps are still a bit chilly!

Today’s Look:

Faux Fur Vest - A faux fur vest is a spring must, and it is something that we should all have in our wardrobe. You don’t have to spend a lot of money, as they have these vests in literally every store. They go with everything, and they are perfect for layering, if you do not want to wear a jacket.

http://shopstyle.it/l/S1rq

March Blog.jpg

Jeans - I am wearing a size 26 petite, and Madewell jeans are truly my fave. I love that they button, as opposed to zipping, so they lay flat, and they are incredibly comfy. Pair them with a blouse, or sweater, and you are all set anytime of day or night! They come in sizes 23-33, and in petite, regular, and tall.

https://shopstyle.it/l/0jMK

March Blog 2.jpg

Top with Bell Sleeves - Who doesn’t love adding a bit of 70’s vibes to their look? This top is so fun, and the best part is you can dress it up with a skirt for work, or be more casual like I did here by pairing it with jeans and velvet sneakers. This top comes in 5 different colors and sizes XXS-XL. I am wearing a size small.

https://shopstyle.it/l/0jLS

March Blog 3.jpg

Velvet Sneakers - I am wearing a size 7. These sneakers are SO fun, and they add the perfect pop of color to any solid color ensemble. While they appear to be a bit heavy, they are actually quite lightweight. They are the perfect travel shoe because they provide the perfect amount of support, and if they get dirty you can wipe them off. They come in sizes 6 - 10 as well as half sizes.

Funfetti Cookie Recipe.

Hey babes!

We all have those Saturday’s where the weather is miserable, we cannot go outside, and we end up feeling bored by noon. Well, that was my sister and I this past Saturday. My sister and I love to cook and bake. We get it from our mom and grandma, and of course being Italian, it is just naturally in our blood. Ever since I can remember, we’ve always been in the kitchen making fun recipes. Of course, we always make way too much, but again, being Italian it is in our blood haha. So, this past Saturday, we decided it would be fun to try out a new cookie recipe, and they came out great!

Everyone loves Funfetti, from cakes, to ice cream, to breakfast, even coffee! I tried the coffee and it is not that good. Well, my sister and I decided to make funfetti cookies, except we put our own spin on the fun treat. Not only are they yummy, but they make for a perfect gift, and after dinner dessert when having guests over, or even when you have a late night craving.

Funfetti Cookie Recipe:

Ingredients:

  1. White Cake Mix

  2. Multi Colored Sprinkles

  3. Chocolate Sprinkles

  4. Eggs

  5. Vegetable Oil

Baking Instructions:

Preheat over to 350.

  1. In a large glass bowl, pour half of the multi colored sprinkles and chocolate sprinkles into the bowl.

  2. Add white cake mix to the glass bowl, followed by two eggs and 3/4 cups of vegetable oil.

  3. Mix all ingredients together until smooth.

  4. Add the remaining sprinkles to the bowl, and mix one last time.

  5. Spray non stick spray on a large baking sheet, and with a spoon or ice cream scooper, scoop out the cookie dough and place on sheet. Using a spoon, or ice cream scooper will allow for the perfect shaped cookie.

  6. Leave cookies in over for 15 to 20 minutes until done.

  7. Allow cookies to cool

  8. Serve and enjoy!

Pretty In Pink.

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful warm weather we’ve been graced with this week. It was 60 degrees here in New York City! Well, actually it was 59 but when it gets to be that warm we can just round up hahaha. I’d love it if the weather stayed this warm, but I’ll happily take an early spring like Punxsutawney Phil predicted. The best part about warm days, is being able to walk home from work instead of taking the subway. You can just gaze at the beauty of the city, not to mention you can save a subway swipe!

For today’s post I’ll be sharing with you a few of my favorite finds that are not only perfect for Valentine’s Day, but are also perfect as we transition into March in a few short weeks! Plus who doesn’t love a little pop of pink in their lif

Today’s Look:

Blouse - I am wearing a size small and I love all the dainty detailing throughout the blouse. You can wear this blouse to work and for play! The blouse also washes really well, just run on cold and hang dry. This blouse comes in sizes S-XL.

https://shopstyle.it/l/Y8NT

VD blogger.jpg

Leather Skirt - I am wearing a size 26, and while I have quite a few leather skirts this one truly is one of the comfiest ones I own. You know sometimes leather doesn’t really move and is stiff, however, this skirt moves with you. The best part about investing in a leather skirt is that it is transitional piece so you can wear it fall through summer. This skirt comes in sizes 24-31.

VD Blogger 2.jpg

Block Heel - I am wearing a size 6.5 in Hot Pink. I typically wear a 7, but you have to go down a size in these heels. We are following the comfy theme, as these shoes are truly the comfiest heel in my closet. They come in sizes 5-11, as well as half sizes. They also come in a wide variety of shades, including animal print.

https://shopstyle.it/l/Y8RJ

Blogger VD.jpg

Faux Fur Coat - I am wearing a size small and this coat is SO MUCH FUN! Not only is it sure to add a pop of color to any outfit but it is also incredibly warm and cozy. I’ve dressed this coat up like I did for today’s look and I’ve even dressed it down by pairing it with workout gear for running errands. This coat comes in sizes XS-L and in 4 different fun shades including animal print.

Blair Waldorf Approved.

Happy Hump Day!

Am I the only one who thinks this week is dragging? I thought yesterday was Thursday! I think it is a combination of the cold weather, and lack of sunshine. But it is going to be 50 degrees over the weekend, and than 19 degrees on Monday…..oh my goodness we are going to FREEZE! haha. This just gets us one step closer to summer, but than we will complain that it is too hot! However, NYC really is hot and steamy in the summer, and not the sunny beach kinda hot, more like the standing behind the back of a bus kinda hot. So Monday will consist of bundling up, like our moms would do when we had a snow day and we could barely move to play outside. But hey, we were WARM.

Speaking of when we were little, I remember when I was a little girl, my mom would always put bows and headbands in my hair. All kinds of headbands - glittery, leather, colorful, floral, you name it we had that style. I loved wearing them, and I was sad they went outta style when I got older. That was until Gossip Girl came on the scene, and Blair was always seen wearing them, and boom, they made a comeback. Well, I can now say that they’ve made a comeback yet again, and I will be sharing not only some of my favorite headbands, but how to style them as well.

5 Must Have Headbands and How To Style Them:

  1. Gold Leaf Headband - From work to play, this headband can dress up an outfit. I wear mine to work, as it really ties the whole look together into a polished fashion.

How To Style:

  1. Brush out hair, leaving the curls to fall natural

  2. Flip over head and spray hairspray underneath

  3. Flip head and tease hair

  4. Place headband behind the ears, and allow hair to be in front and in back of headband

  5. Spay again

    https://shopstyle.it/l/Yif

Gold Leaf Headband.jpg

2. Velvet Headband - Brunch with the girls? Date night, or family gathering? Velvet headbands always have a very classic look, and I always wore them growing up, and still do on special occasions. They polish off any look, and they come in the perfect color palette - black, burgundy, green, mustard, and navy.

How To Style:

  1. Curl hair in either hot rollers or curling iron

  2. Brush out curls and spray

  3. Put in headband and run brush through one last time

  4. Spray again

Velvet Headband.jpg

3. Chiffon Headband - They are the perfect casual Friday accessory. By Friday we are fed up doing our hair, and we just want simple and easy. No muss, no fuss. They also come in bright colors like hot pink, bright blue, and yellow.

How To Style:

  1. Brush out hair, and style in either ponytail or low bun

  2. Use hair tie that matches hair color

  3. Put in headband

  4. Spray again

4. Striped Wrap Headband - Running errands, afternoon movie, or just chilling with the family? This headband makes for the perfect denim companion. I love wearing them with jeans and a tee, or a sweatshirt and leggings. Instead of wearing a baseball cap, which I always wear, this just makes for a more polished look. They come in a wide variety of colors and patterns.

How To Style:

  1. Comb through hair with brush and let it lay natural or put in low bun

  2. Place headband

  3. Spray

Striped Headband.jpg

Jeweled Headband - Perfect for a wedding, party, or anniversary dinner. These dainty headbands are sure to turn heads, and add that extra touch to complete your whole look.

How To Style:

  1. Brush out hair leaving the curls to fall naturally

  2. Flip over head and spray hairspray underneath

  3. Flip head and tease hair

  4. Place headband behind the ears and allow hair to be in front and in back of headband

  5. Spay again

The Perfect Casual Friday Wear.

Happy Monday!

I hope that everyone stayed nice and toasty warm this weekend. I know that most of the country was hit by snow, and freezing cold temperatures. Though it was cold, I hope you were able to still have fun in the snow! Rehoboth Beach got 6 inches of snow, and one thing all Delawareans know, is that Delaware does not know how to handle snow, and we are in the North East….haha. Luckily, the snow bi-passed NYC, but I saw that we may not get so lucky this coming weekend. Is it summer yet? However, I will say that January does get us one step closer to summer, so it is all about the positives.

Speaking of cold weather, it is so hard to dress cute and stylish when you feel like you are going to freeze to death when you step outside. It is easy during the week when we wear tights with our dresses and skirts, but on Friday’s we get a reprieve, if your office allows Casual Friday. But how do we dress cute in jeans, while still staying warm while on our way to work? Well, I have the perfect look, and you’ll be able to mix and match. You are sure to be toasty and warm throughout the whole day and night.

Today’s Look:

Wrap Top - I am wearing a size Small Petite, in Winter White. This top goes perfectly with jeans, like I’ve paired it with, leather pants, or structured and tailored trousers. I love how the top ties off at the waist, so it is flattering on all body types. I love how Ann Taylor always carries petite sizes, so I know that whatever I buy it will fit perfectly. From work, to date night, to a fun holiday party, you are all set for the season. This top comes in sizes XXS-XL, 3 different colors, and is machine washable.

Modern All Day Skinny Jean - I am wearing a size 2 petite, and these jeans are SO comfy! I wear them at least once a week, no lie, and they are perfect for casual Friday. You can pair them with a sweater, or blouse or a wrap top like I did for this look. They come in sizes 00-16 and in regular, tall and petite.

Animal Print + Velvet.

Happy Monday!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend, and is all set to start a new week. The weather was quite nice this weekend, meaning I could spend as much time in Central Park as possible. I, for one, would love a mild winter; but I am sure that will not be possible. But hey, a girl can dream haha.

My post for today will feature a favorite of mine, which is currently hanging up in my closet. I was planning on wearing it on NYE, but the stomach flu had other plans. However, I am taking that as a sign of good luck for the year of 2019. This velvet dress is not only the perfect date night dress, but it is great for dinner with the girls, and you can even wear it to work, by adding a blouse, or turtleneck, underneath. I am all for versatile outfits, and having less clutter in the closet.

My Look:

Velvet Dress - I am wearing a size small, in burgundy. While velvet can sometimes feel constricting, this dress easily moves, so you are comfortable from the moment you slip it on. This dress comes in sizes XS-L, and in three different shades.

Block Heels - I am wearing a size 6.5 in Taupe. I typically wear a 7, but you have to go down a size in these heels. We are following the comfy theme, as these shoes are truly the comfiest heel in my closet. I was on my feet, all day, on Christmas Day, helping with dinner, and these were not only supportive, but my feet did not protest one time. They come in sizes 5-11, as well as half sizes. They also come in a wide variety of shades, including animal print. Plus, the taupe have glitter on the back, which is why I purchased that pair.

Coat with Faux Fur Trim - I am wearing a size 4, and while my coat is from last year, I was able to find almost the same exact coat from Talbots. The coat comes in regular, petite, and misses; as well as black, heather grey and green.

All In The Details.

Hey babes!

I hope that everyone is staying warm and cozy this blustery December! I am always the worst when it comes to dressing warmly during the holiday season, especially when it comes to festive parties, and weddings, during this time of year. I always want to wear those pretty sleeveless dresses, and tops, but than I am FREEZING in my coat, because I did not dress warm enough underneath. We all do this, but I was determined not do that as much this year. I can definitely say that I have picked some pieces that are sure to keep you warm, and I know that everyone will be asking you where you got your look. You can say Ann Taylor.

Today’s Look:

Tuxedo Tie Neck Blouse - I am wearing a small, in winter white. This blouse literally feels like you are being hugged by a cloud. Okay, a bit dramatic, but it truly is so soft and flowy. Plus, it looks beautiful paired with denim, trousers, or a skirt like I have here. I love the dainty buttons and tie at the neck, very Chanel. This blouse comes in sizes XXS-XXL, and in two different shades - white and black, and regular and petite.

SALE ALERT: 50% off 3 items, 40% off 2 items, and 30% off 1 full price item when using the code YOUCHOOSE.

Pleated Lace Hem Skirt - I am wearing a size small petite, and you guys this skirt is STUNNING! As soon as I saw it online I knew that I 1. Was going to try it on asap and 2. That I needed it in my closet. The detailing of the lace, along the bottom hem of the skirt, is so delicate and dainty that it is sure to make everyone stop and ask you where you bought it. The skirt is sure to be flattering on all body types, and it looks great with a sweater, or blouse, like I did here for a more dressy look. You can even dress it down with a basic white tee and leather jacket. This skirt comes in XXS-XL, and regular and petite.

SALE ALERT: 50% off 3 items, 40% off 2 items, and 30% off 1 full price item when using the code YOUCHOOSE.

Holiday Ready.

Thank God its the Weekend everyone!

I hope everyone had an AMAZING Thanksgiving, with their loved ones, and ate tons of turkey and pie. I love Thanksgiving, as I always feel like Thanksgiving is the start of the holiday season. I must admit I have already decorated my apartment for Christmas, and when I came home after Thanksgiving at least 75% of my suitcase had Christmas sweaters, leggings, and holiday wear for the holiday season. Throughout December, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite Christmas gear, gift guides, AND a really exciting collaboration that I’ve been working on that I can’t tell you guys about just yet.

I love oversized sweaters for the winter, they are cozy, comfy, and they go with almost anything.

Today’s Look:

Oversized sweater - I am wearing a medium. I usually wear a small, but I love going up a size, so I can layer on top with a vest or leather jacket. The sweater comes in sizes XS-XL, and in 5 different colors.

Jeans - I am wearing a size 26 petite. I am so happy that most stores carry petite size jeans! Finally! It was always such a struggle before, and I either needed to get them hemmed, or I’d roll them. So happy I do not have to do that anymore. These jeans come in sizes 24-32, and petite, regular, and tall.

Booties - I am wearing a size 7, and these booties are so comfy. You can wear them to work, dinner with friends and family, and all that running around doing holiday shopping. They come in sizes 5-10, as well as half sizes.

Holiday crossbody - I love everything festive during the holidays, from bags, to winter hats. Sadly, my bag is from last year, but I’ve linked two other bags that I know you’ll love.

Thanksgiving week ready.

Happy Thanksgiving week!

Thanksgiving has truly come out of nowhere. Halloween was only 3 weeks ago! While I am ready to spend time with my friends and family, I don’t feel like I have had enough time to prepare, or figure out what I am going to wear haha. However, comfy dresses are a must for Thanksgiving, meaning I can eat as much turkey, and pie, that I want.

For today’s post, I am going to share some of my faves for this time of year. The weather still isn’t incredibly cold, so I tend to wear a heavier sweater, and light jacket. This way, if I am too warm, I can easily remove my jacket. I also get hot incredibly easily.

Today’s post

Sweater - I am wearing a size small, in cream. This sweater is so incredibly warm, and cozy, that I never want to take it off. This sweater is perfect for layering, and it looks great with skinny jeans, or leathers pants. They come in sizes XS-L, and in several different colors.

Jeans - I am wearing a size 26 petite, and Madewell jeans are truly my fave. I love that they button, as opposed to zipping, so they lay flat, and they are incredibly comfy. Pair them with a blouse, or sweater, and you are all set anytime of day or night! They come in sizes 23-33, and in petite, regular, and tall.

Slides - I am wearing a size 7, and while these are from last year, they are still selling them online! YAY! They come in a variety of colors, and in sizes 5.5 - 11.

Have a wonderful beginning to the Thanksgiving holiday!

November layers.

Happy first week of November!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Halloween, filled with laughter, candy, and MORE candy. My sister and I gave out candy in our apartment building, and I was afraid that we’d run out of candy, as we had so many kids, but we had plenty to spare. Meaning, that we can eat the rest of it! It may take us until the summer, but it will get eaten haha.

Now that it is starting to feel like fall, but you still do not want to wear a winter coat, vests are the perfect choice. They are perfect for layering, and keeping you warm, and cozy, on blustery days. From puffer vests, to fur vests, you can take your look from day to night, from casual to chic, all with swapping out one for the other. I’ve talked about fur vests on previous posts, and now I am going to share with you my favorite puffer vest for all those chilly fall days.

Today’s Look:

Vest - I am wearing a size small petite. You do not need to spend a lot of money on a vest for the fall/winter. You can find plenty of inexpensive ones from Old Navy, Target, The Gap, etc. Mine is from Old Navy, and I’ve been buying vests from there for years. They are incredibly durable, and you can throw them in the wash. They come in sizes XS-XL, and in regular, tall, and petite.

Top - I am wearing a size small petite in black. You can never go wrong with a comfy long sleeve tee, perfect for layering. This top comes in sizes XS-XL. Target always have the cutest, and comfiest, tops.

Jeans - These jeans are truly the comfiest jeans in my closet. Three of my friends have already bought them, and they are OBSESSED. I love that they button, instead of zip, so they lay flatter. Plus, it is easier to tuck in a top or wear a sweater. I am wearing a size 2 petite, and they also come in regular, and tall, as well as sizes 0-18.

Sneakers - Who doesn’t love a fun pair of sneakers? Not gonna lie, I love cute sneakers, slip on’s and slides (they are literally my “go too”) Ever since I got hurt 4 years ago, sneakers truly are the comfiest shoes that I own. These sneakers are incredibly supportive, and you can wash them off with a wipe, and they will look as good as new. They come in sizes 5-9, as well as half sizes, and in three different colors!
