There are a couple of things going on here. First, my hair is darker. Second, I’m killing it in this dress/jeans/sneakers combo… wouldn’t you agree?
This weekend I attended back-to-back holiday parties, so the girls and I went shopping for cocktail dresses. It just so happens that I found mine at a pop-up shop in Union Square. Had to make sure it fit before purchasing, so… No shame. Thank god for friends who insist upon are willing to snap a pic at a time like this. I bought the dress, paired it with a vintage belt, sheer tights, and ankle booties… Left the jeans and sneakers at home. 🙂
Well I can’t Instagram a photo of the back of my eyelids, so I have no images to supplement my weekend recap… I spent most of the weekend cuddled up with the manfriend, watching Homeland (and football). It is unbelievably nice sometimes to wear comfy pajamas (not a blog-worthy look) and just veg out (lay like broccoli) with someone you love. Oh, and to get some sleep! Call me an old lady if you want, but I had a wonderful and relaxing weekend.
And since I don’t have weekend pictures, here is my life lately, via Instagram. Enjoy…

Took the trip up to Boston this weekend, trying to escape my cold, dark apartment in NYC. It was beautiful this weekend, so we strolled through the park on the way to brunch at The Paramount. Later we grabbed a drink (or two, or more) at Forum. We kept ordering because there were so many unique concoctions on the menu that we HAD to try. The one pictured above was the “Angry Rita.” Then we popped over to Sugar Heaven, one of our favorite spots… do I really need to explain why? And of course, had to get this wine because, well… wine, candy, and Boston are wicked good. Hope you all had a great weekend, too!
P.S. Although my power is back, I know there are still many people whose lives are not restored to normalcy, so please keep them in mind, and if you are able to donate to a relief fund, please do. Thanks!
Quick weekend recap: On Saturday, the manfriend and I went to a candy bar to stock up (“adult-Halloween”) then hit the movie theater to see Argo. I wore these new “kicks” a lot this weekend. I’m not usually a sneaker girl (like, at all), but this pair seemed perfect to throw on with anything from jeans to a flirty skirt to walk the streets of New York. On Sunday, we grabbed brunch at a cute spot called The Half Pint in Greenwich Village, then browsed a cool record store nearby, before I started prepping to hole up for the storm. Hope you all had a nice weekend!
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.
We had a great day spent at Coney Island. The manfriend and I were like little kids again! We went on rides, played a couple carnival games, walked the boardwalk, and enjoyed some funnel cake and ice cream. What could be better? Hope you all had a great weekend too!
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!
P.S. I finally got the hair cut… Pictures to come!
This weekend, the manfriend and I took a much-needed break from the heat in NYC and headed home to his house on the water in Gloucester. It was an amazing weekend with lots to share, but first here are just some highlights:
I spent much of my weekend recovering from a sprained ankle… This is what I get for ignoring my washed-up athlete status and challenging the manfriend to a friendly game of basketball. The rest of the weekend was spent shopping in Soho… It was slow and painful, but I will fight through almost anything if the opportunity for new purchases is involved…
Here is what I took home:
Of course none of these items were on my list, so I will need to hit the stores again soon… muahaha 🙂
