Long time no see




Hey guys, look an outfit post!
It's been a while right? I'm sure some of you guys are wondering what was taking me so long? Well there's a couple of answers to this question.
First off, it was freezing in NYC this year. It was very hard for me to be outside more than five minutes to take pictures and try to look cute while wearing 10 pounds of clothes, so trust me none of you guys would have liked to see that.
Second, my blog just turned FIVE years old last month (it's kind of hard for me to believe) and I felt like it needed a change. So these past couple of months I've been brainstorming some new ideas I want to add to this blog to make it more fun and have more content for you guys to enjoy. So you'll be seeing those features in the upcoming weeks!
And third, I just needed a break to get inspired and motivated again to start doing this whole blogging thing again. As you can imagine doing something for five years can get pretty mundane so I think a break was much needed so I could get excited about blogging again.


So now that I have gotten that off my chest, lets talk about the clothes!

I'm wearing new Spring 2014 Warby Parker glasses
(If you're in need of a pair, it's a no brainer to go with Warby- super affordable and totally cute.)
H&M denim dress
Karibu Kikoy sarong (worn as a scarf- each one that is sold proceeds go to building maternal hospital in East Africa!)
Cat Footwear Spring 2014 Oxfords -Check out there stuff, you're in for a sweet surprise!


Here are some similar options...

Hello December






Madewell dress
american apparel shirt
Brahmin Atelier clutch
Cat footwear shoes

The holiday season is my favorite time of the year.
I spent thanksgiving with my family in Florida this year and I wore this outfit (I took these pictures in NYC before I left). It was a lot warmer down there so I didn't wear the button down shirt underneath the dress. It just goes to show how easy it is to make your favorite sleeveless dress more seasonal appropriate.
I have tons of homework and studying to do
 Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

Thanks Daniel Lopera for the photos

In Camo.


Urban Outfitters (mens) camo shirtMadewell corduroy pants
RD Style necklace
Brahmin Frankie Day tote 
Cat Footwear boots

Today it feels like a strange spring day here in NYC.
We have all the colorfull leaves on the ground but sunny 64 degree weather.
It's a bit strange but I can't complain because soon we will be in our low 30's! (Screams and crawls back into bed!)
Anyways, Lets talk about this bag- Since the school semester is winding down for me I find myself carrying more stuff now then ever! My Brahmin tote bag is great for carrying all my books and my laptop and the little compartments make it super easy to organize. If you're looking for a carry all tote bag look no further- This one sure has my heart!

Stay gold







Forever 21 coat
Missguided crop top and shorts
F21 shoes

So this is a pretty different look for me can you guys agree?
I usually stay away from bold patterns but when I saw this outfit on Missguidedus.com I could not resist! I thought that paring it with stockings it would still look great and since it's been getting so cold here in NYC I almost had no other choice!

I hope everyone has a great week!

Fossil -Sidney Shopper bag
House of Wilde dress

I woke up before the sun had come up to take these (awesome) pictures with my boyfriend. He came up with the idea of taking some photos on top of the roof while the sun was rising. Didn't they come out great? I especially loved how the colors of the sky go perfectly with my Fossil bag.

Fossil at Vogue event!


 Earlier this week I was invited by Vogue to a special event they hosted for Fossil.
Fossil's Fall collection is filled with versatile, colorful pieces that I instantly fell in love with. The bloggers there where assigned to style an outfit and incorporate there favorite Fossil piece. As I was walking around the room I was drawn to their metallic Sidney satchel and from then on the outfit all came together very easily. I thought the outfit looked like something you could see Blair Waldorf wearing sitting at the steps of the Met. Don't you agree?

Thanks to Fossil I'll be wearing one of the purses in my next outfit post so please stay tuned!
