Hope you all had a great weekend! P.S. I am wearing Zara striped sweater-dress (love this version by Joie) and pashmina scarf via Marshalls.

Oh yeah, I moved…

So I moved… Like 4 weeks ago. I had every intention of sharing pictures of my new place and some of my favorite home decs. However, I am only just getting around unpacking everything, furnishing, decorating, and putting on the finishing touches. I can’t guarantee it will ever be completed, but here are some snaps of things that are actually done I love…

Cool, vintage-y trunk for storage

Have been neglecting the blog a little, but here are some things I have been up to… which apparently is mostly eating delicious food. Well, I can’t complain 🙂  Tell me your favorite restaurant spots in NYC in the comments!

Weekend Recap: Date Night

Blouse: Michael Kors, Shorts: Zara, Booties: Steve Madden (all old), Necklace: Off Fifth, Watch: Michael Kors, Cocktail Ring: random boutique (similar)

The manfriend and I went on a date this weekend to a cool little seafood restaurant in West Village. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere reminded me a lot of home. We snapped a quick pic of my outfit before we left, which was just simple chic… The accessories are the real focus here; a mixed-metallic statement necklace and green lace up booties. What do you think? Hope you all had a great weekend!

Recap: Various Fashion Events

NYFW is in full swing, and there are fashion events, shows, and exhibits dotting the city. Yesterday, I went to the Hermes Festival des Metiers, an exhibit honoring the crafts men and women who create the brand’s fabulous luxury items from ties to saddles to the famous silk scarves. Here are some photos from the exhibit:

Crafting silk ties
Saddles
Scarves aplenty!

You should definitely go check the exhibit out if you live in the area – worth seeing how meticulously luxury items like this are made.

I also went to Fashion Night Out last night, which was a crazy, crowded, hot mess. I wore paisley printed, wide-leg trousers from Zara, a silk black tank, and black pumps with a wood heel by Michael Kors. (No pictures survived)… Here are some things that caught my eye from the night:

Picture wall at Kate Spade
Miniature cupcake at Paige Denim
Question mark clutch at Kate Spade
Pink moped and ensemble at C.Wonder

Did you go to FNO?? Tell me in the comments what you saw and loved from the big event!

Weekend Recap: Rings and Things

Went home this weekend to catch up with friends and family… Clockwise from top: 1. Received my replacement Allison Daniel snake ring in the mail… Great news, because I was starting to feel naked without it. 2. No trip home is complete without some good old New England seafood from Browns. 3. Laying poolside with le dog and my Fall InStyle. 4. Saw Evita on Broadway, which was nothing short of amazing.

Weekend Recap: Home Sweet Home

Went back home this weekend, where I was totally spoiled by my saint of a mother… Can you say poolside cocktails and lazy man girl lobster?? Plus, I couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather…  Anyway, here are some highlights from the weekend with the family!

My Skylar waiting for her frisbee to be thrown, a bucket of delicious lobsters, a backyard game of bags, a vacant float with my name on it in the pool

P.S. I finally got the hair cut… Pictures to come!

Weekend Recap: Shopping Trips and Drinks

The weekend was spent browsing but not buying… the worst kind of shopping trip. Only a delicious beverage can ease the pain of that, so the manfriend and I grabbed some drinks – can you guess which one is mine? Hope you all had a nice weekend!

P.S. If you want the wedges, get them here!
