Outfit & favorite buys

I’m loving my faux fur vest I got at target! it’s light and not bulky at all. I plan on using this as much as I can now before summer comes along. This vest comes in two colors, I chose the lighter one, but they are both pretty cute. The belt is also from target! It’s super versatile, I can wear with almost anything! Love that it has a texture, and a hint of gold.

Pretty Pastels Haul


I was just at Urban Outfitters and spotted these super cute knee high socks. I got three pairs, and plan on wearing them with boots as well as just to lounge around the house. they were $14.00 each. They are extremely cute, very comfy and come in different colors. I think they have black and gray as well. I just wanted to get all of them!

Pretty Christmas Sweaters!

Pretty christmas sweaters!
The “Ugly” Christmas sweater is a holiday tradition. It seems everyone at least once in their lifetime will get one of these for the holidays. They have become synonymous with the “bad” christmas present everyone dreads. But this year sweaters are in! The “ugly” Christmas sweater is not so ugly after all. I seem to be finding some cute ones, somehow trendy ones out there. So I compiled a list of my favorite “pretty” christmas sweaters this year. I can honestly say I would wear any of them!

Snow Day Essentials

Snow Day
It’s a winter wonderland in New York! I thought I would stay home and snuggle with a comfy blanket and a cup of tea. What do I do on a snow day? Basically I just lounge in the comfiest clothes I have, a pair of socks and slippers, my hair in a bun, a snack in one hand and a notebook in the other. I always keep a good moisturizer handy for that winter time dry skin, and if I have time I’ll even do my nails!

Outfit of the day…on a rainy day!

Time to bring out my Hunter boots! I paired them up with khakis and a stripped boat neck shirt from Banana Republic (love the glitter trim at the top). My navy blue purse from target is a winner, it matches everything! Including this outfit, also added navy blue scarf and blazer.

I’m a little bit country…


The weather is driving me crazy, Monday was 62 degrees, Wednesday is 42. So I brought out my boots, and decided to go with a nice comfy flannel shirt. Today, I’m a little bit country, and yet a little bit of rock and roll..hehe. Does anyone remember that song? (not that I was alive when it came out, I’m an 80s baby)

The shirt is from Banana Republic (its long sleeves), they have different colors even pink. The necklace is target, as I mention in my previous post “Favorite buys this month”. American eagle polka dot scarf and Dolce Vita boots from Macys.
