Happy Monday, all! As I’ve hinted at in other posts, these last few months especially, I have been very emotional and not really prone to blogging as much as I’d like. With the move to a new house (yes, we … Continue reading
In many places, like NC, it’s already so warm that we are hash tagging #summerishere. That means that every spare moment we are headed to the beach or the pool with our tote in tow, big sunglasses, and tanning oil. But, … Continue reading
Hi there, everyone! Can you believe we have sprung right into MAY?! I can’t! 2014 is going by incredibly quickly and I am overjoyed that I am 15 weeks pregnant. As hard as some of these days have been (feeling … Continue reading
Hey everyone! I didn’t have any planned posts for today, surprisingly. Due to my OCD I almost always have something scheduled but, this weekend we are going out of town so I have been a little discombobulated when it comes … Continue reading
First & foremost, let me just say that you should never, ever, ever wear brand new shoes to walk around in the city of Manhattan. At least not brand new ankle booties without socks. Yikes!
Yesterday was our first full day (one of many to come) in NY and I couldn’t have been more excited. I picked something casual and comfortable to wear. It was a super sunny, crisp, fall day; totally gorgeous! I didn’t know that the ankle booties would get me problems until I started walking for more than 30 minutes and we were already too far away from the house to go back for socks…etc. So, like a true fashionista I stuck it out and now have humongous gashes on my heels where blisters used to be. Oh well, it was worth it. Lets just say, you’ve been warned.
We spent the day doing a few just for fun things, a few educational things, and eat lots of yummy food! Food is always my favorite part 😉
I don’t think I could ever live in NYC, unless I was single, because the hustle and bustle of the big city lifestyle isn’t really my speed. I’m quite the homebody and enjoy my quiet time in my own space, and wide open area where I can just breathe. But, a week surrounded by people from the world over, experiencing different languages, cultures, sights, and smells all in this ‘melting pot’ of a place is really amazing. It always takes my breath away to see how outstandingly diverse the human race can be and yet, we all have so much in common.
Cardigan: Borrowed from my mom
Black Blouse: Target, approx $20
Boyfriend Jeans: Gap, $40
Ankle Booties: Nordstrom Rack, $70 (splurge!)
I also thought my mom looked nice today and talked her into letting me use some photos for the blog. Isn’t my mama cute?
And she got her gorgeous, military style, navy jacket at a consignment store!
Fashion Tip: Don’t be afraid to look through consignment and resale store clothing, as well as Goodwill, or eBay. You never know what you’ll find! One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. 😉
I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far. Happy Hump Day!
Caught our flight to NYC this morning and… WE MADE IT! Such a nice feeling to be back in this city! ❤️ There is something so artistic and independent about the spirit of this place…
Wanted to share with you guys my outfit of the day. I think I made a good choice…
The cell phone photo isn’t the best and airport lighting is unflattering but, I am comfortable– especially for the rainy weather we encountered upon arrival.
Sweater- Target, $22
Jeans- Gap, $40
Scarf- Charlotte Russe, $5 (on sale)
Suede Boots- Delia*s, (old)
Hope you all are having a fantastic Monday!
It might be just where I live but, today was like a rewind back to summer!
I have been kinda down in the dumps recently, facing depression, cutting down my volunteer hours, endless migraines, a bad body image so much I have even considered not posting OOTD articles anymore 😦 , and fading friendships. But, today I woke up feeling good about life 🙂 I enjoyed running around with my mom, have an iced caramel macchiato, and (mostly) the weather! 82 degrees, low humidity, and the slightest breeze = perfection.
Please excuse my wind-blown hair. I got out of the shower, scrunched with some gel, and went for a “beach girl on the go” look 😉
Palm Motif Woven Tank- Nordstrom Rack
Black/Brown Leather Hobo Bag- Borrowed
Have a great day/evening!!
