The Circle Skirt

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Skirt: F21; Sweater: J.Crew Tippi; Tights: Target; Shoes: J.Crew; Necklace: Stella & Dot; Watch: Michael Kors "Runway"; Bangles: Alex & Ani

Hi guys! Hope everyone had a fabulous Turkey Day! It was a beautiful day in Central New York and shortly thereafter, it dropped about 30 degrees and snowed. There's something so comforting about being around loved ones and friends who have known you forever. It's so easy to get caught up in life and the problems we think we have -- I know I'm guilty of that. Then I arrive home to my tiny little town that no one else in the world has heard of and voila, I'm reminded that my family, friends and I are really pretty fortunate. 


The Comfy Dress

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Dress: Fossil; Tights: Hue; Boots: Victoria's Secret; Watch: Michael Kors "Runway"; Bangles: Alex & Ani; Spike Bracelet: Stella & Dot

Apologies for the major lull in posting the last two weeks. My personal life has been in a transition period of sorts so I've been taking some time to organize my new apartment, relax and rejunivate. I'm heading back home to Central New York today and couldn't be more excited to see my favorite familiar faces. How are you spending your Thanksgiving?

This is the dress I brought home from the Fossil event last week. I'd been looking for a comfy shift dress that still looked cute on and this fit the bill perfectly. I love the feather print and the colors are ideal for this time of year. I also can't wait to belt it and pair it with riding boots.

Safe travels & Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Fossil Holiday Wish List

Thursday, November 15, 2012

It's that time of year again -- the air is colder, Christmas music is floating through air, and our "To Do" lists seem never-ending. Regardless of how hectic this time can be, it's one of my favorite times of year. There's something so fun about shopping for loved ones and the smell of Christmas cookies permeating the house.

I stopped by Fossil last night to check out their new Holiday collection and found items I know every one of my friends and family members will love. And naturally I found a few for myself. Fossil has really stepped up their jewelry game as of late. Not to mention the clothing! I purchased a dress while I was there (stay tuned for an outfit post!) and may or may not have left with a few gifts. I know I'm not alone with the whole "one for you, one for me" approach to holiday shopping. Am I right?

LOVE this Explorer Tote

How great are these watches & bangles?

Leather Jacket

Thursday, November 8, 2012

Leather Jacket: Elie Tahari (similar HERE); Blouse: Madewell; Boyfriend jeans: Gap (similar HERE); Heels: Zara; Bag: Michael Kors; Sunnies: Chloe; Ring: Bobbles & Lace, Portsmouth, NH

Say hello to my favorite piece in my closet (at the moment). I scored this Elie Tahari 100% genuine leather jacket jacket in our most recent Rue Associate Sample Sale. The best part? I only paid $25 for it. Incredible because it retails for over $400. Now that's what I call amazing employee benefits!

These shots are the last of the ones snapped by my favorite photog Kim. I don't know what else to say other than SHE'S AMAZING. I wish we could play dress up and have photo shoots every day!

Have a great weekend loves!

Graphic Sweater Remix + A Special Guest

Monday, November 5, 2012

Jacket: J.Crew; Sweater: J.Crew; Gingham Shirt: J.Crew Factory; Jeans: Gap (old); Boots: Ralph Lauren; Watch: Michael Kors "Runway"; Bangles: Alex & Ani

How is it already Monday again? This weekend absolutely flew by! I spent it up in Maine visiting my cousin, her husband and their three kiddos. One of which helped direct this photo session. Her name is Libby and she's a little fashionista in training. She makes a guest appearance below -- no attitude on that child, huh? She's a riot.

This sweater has been on repeat as of late. It's the perfect casual weekend piece but I also can't wait to pair it with a circle skirt, tights & heels for a day at the office.

Future Fashion Blogger, Libby Lou

A special thank you shout out to my cousin Kim, the super-talented photographer who snapped these shots. She has a great eye and is also a ton of fun to work with. Who knows, you might even see a giveaway coming up on the blog soon!
