CASUAL CHIC

Happy Monday loves!  Hope you had a wonderful and exciting weekend.  It rained here non stop for two days but the weather finally made a turn for the better today.  The sun was out and it's starting to feel like Spring!

My New York weekend was a lot of fun.  We stayed in Times Square and the view from our room was insane.  We could see the whole city from our window.  We strolled through the city and casually wandered up and down 5th Avenue and did some shopping (mostly window shopping).  Then we stopped by Magnolia Bakery and Laduree for some sweet indulgences.  If you haven't tried Laduree macarons, I would highly recommend it.  Then we ended the day with a beautiful walk through Central Park.  In the evening, we had a delicious dinner at Hakkasan which has an Asian fusion style cuisine with a laid back yet contemporary ambiance.  We ended the night by going out dancing in the Meatpacking district.  Check out my Instagram for photos of my trip.

Lately I've been really into more casual looks with an element of chicness to it.  I'm all about comfort these days and my Chanel espadrilles fit the bill perfectly.  I can't say enough about how comfortable and stylish they are.  I kept it simple with some jeans and a loose top.  I think a blazer or jacket can instantly dress up an outfit and it's usually what I go to when I want to be casual but appear dressed up at the same time.

Thanks for reading and have an amazingly awesome week!  xoxo

BLUE + YELLOW





Happy Tuesday loves!  Hope you're having a great start to your week so far.  I'm sharing a look from Sunday night.  I just got this beautiful yellow jacket from Zara recently and I decided to pair it with my blue cashmere sweater.  I love these two shades together and it just so happens both are also my two all time favorite colors.

I will be spending Saturday and Sunday this weekend in New York City.  I am really excited because it's been about two years since I've been there.  My friend Allison and I have two full days of activities planned.  We are going to be total tourists and go to central park, walk around Times Square and take lots of pics of course!

Happy Saturday loves!  Hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far.  Today I went to the optometrist to get some new glasses.  I have such a hard time finding frames that fit me because of my high cheekbones.  The staff at this new place I went to were all so friendly and helped me pick out a perfect pair.  They had to dilate my eyes for the exam and although that was a couple of hours ago, I still feel like I can't see up close.

I met up with my good friend Dafne after my appoint for Italian at my favorite restaurant.  It was her first time there so I was really hoping she would like it.  The food is always so good, portions are large and the price very reasonable.  Afterwards, we went to get some nail polishes and then she helped me take a few pics in the parking lot.  Today was a beautiful day and I felt like wearing something cheerful.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend!  xoxo

CASUAL EVENING

Hi loves!  I'm just stopping by for a quick hello.  I'm sharing my casual outfit from tonight's dinner with my mom. The weather was so nice I didn't even need a jacket!  I'm still loving the pastel trend so I've been wearing a lot of softer and more romantic shades.  They also go great with my new purse and shoes!

Thanks for reading! xoxo

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING




Happy Wednesday loves!  Lately I've been really into black so I thought I'd share my all black look today.  I find it tricky wearing black because the color is so dark, sometimes it's hard to see all the details on the garments.  I also decided to mix up the textures so each piece stands on it's own.

After being on the wait list, I finally got my hands on this Chanel boy bag in the large size.  I originally went into the Chanel boutique in Neiman Marcus close to my house (we don't have an actual Chanel boutique close by) and saw the smaller version.  After trying it on (and countless other styles), I just couldn't decide on it.  I went home and did some research and found the larger size.  I like big bags so it just seemed like the natural choice.  It is everything I expected and more.  Such a timeless and classic style.

SUNDAY BRUNCH



Happy Sunday loves!  Hope you had an enjoyable weekend.  We are expecting another six to twelve inches of snow tonight.  I was happy to be able to get out for awhile earlier while the weather was still nice.  This morning I met my friend Walter for brunch.  We took a couple of quick pics outside the restaurant.  Then I met up with my friend Kim for shopping and tonight Chris and I went to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant.

I had a really great time shopping with Kim.  She was looking for work shirts and we were able to find two!  Usually you never find what you are looking for so it was a pretty successful shopping day.  I picked up a pair of blue sunglasses.
