The Best Accessory

 





Sweater: Ann Taylor | Leggings: Alice and Olivia (similar here) | Boots: Old (similar here) |
Hat: Eric Javits | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

 The ability to feel both comfortable and confident is always my goal when getting dressed. Over the years I have learned what styles fit me best. Although I would love to try every trendy item that comes out in stores, in the end I continue to gravitate towards certain pieces. However, I feel that an all black look can be pulled off by anyone, whether it be day or night. It instantly pulls together a look from head to toe and elongates your legs (I am 5'3, so to me this is a dream!) Simply feeling good in what you are wearing is the extra little boost one needs. After all, haven't we been told that the best accessory a girl can own is confidence? xx

Winter Skincare




With the extra cold temperatures lately, I find myself needing to hydrate my skin and hair more than usual. When it comes to a skincare and makeup routine, I tend to justify spending a bit more, as I am picky with the products that I use. Here are a few of my favorite products that keep my skin looking fresh in even the coldest temperatures! In the morning, I like to pair this exfoliant and moisturizer as it revitalizes my skin and makes it ready for the day. The Aveda Stress Fix Creme is also great - I love to put it on in the evenings before falling asleep or while cuddled up with a book because of its extra calming scent. What are your go-to products during this time of year? xx

Grey Days







Denim: Frame | Booties: Steve Madden | Sweater: Nordstrom | Beanie: Forever 21(similar here) | Watch: Michele

Lately, I have been loving anything and everything grey. Even in my decor style, I absolutely adore the silver, metallic and grey look - it is so calming and chic. I do my best to try and add a pop of color here and there. However, during this chilly time of year I feel a crisp and clean look is just what the doctor ordered.

I had been on the hunt for a pair of new booties and finally stumbled across these last week. It was simply love at first site. The color is perfect for all year round and height is just enough to allow me to take on New York City in comfort. Paired with a cozy sweater and white denim now, or a little skirt and blouse in the Spring, these boots will be the perfect accessory for the coming months. xx

NYC Apartment Inspiration

In a few weeks, I will be moving into my very first New York City apartment (someone pinch me, please!) It has been a busy and eventful past two months since making my initial decision to move back East. I am so thankful and blessed for all the support my family and best friends have given me - I am one very lucky girl to have the people I do in my life. Through all of this, one thing I have come to realize is that I don't think one is ever truly prepared for change, but you do have control over how you choose to embrace it. Believe in yourself that you have the strength to make things happen and if it's meant to be, everything will fall into place from there.

With that said, I have been on a constant Pinterest craze - scouting out décor and color schemes for my bedroom. Here are a few of the images that are bringing me bright inspiration - all sources are directly from my Pinterest page. Right now, I am finding favorite's at Lulu and Georgia, One King's Lane and Target. I would love to know where your favorite décor sites are to shop, as I am always looking for new ideas! xx

Merci




Handwritten notes are one of my favorite things to send loved ones and friends. No matter what the occasion, there is something about snail mail that just makes everything that much sweeter! With the holiday season coming to an end, I thought that I would share a few of my favorites below. The notes shown in the pictures above are from Target and Marshall's. I have honestly found some of the cutest options there, and the price tags definitely never hurt! :)

Chevron Sweater Coat





Sweater: Anthropologie | Denim: 7FAM | Boots: Frye | Bag: Sole Society | Hat: Eugenia Kim (also available here) | Watch: Michele

With the holiday season coming to a close, I wanted to share a little post on my travel style. This sweater coat is so comfortable and the perfect layer for chilly flights. In addition, I try to wear my biggest accessories on the plane, like a hat and boots so that it is less to carry. Speaking of carrying, this duffle from Sole Society is my new favorite. It allows me to fit in everything I could need for a long weekend, including extra space for little goodies and purchases made while away! xx

Wool Hat | Cashmere Scarf | Cashmere Sweater (budget friendly here) | Striped Shirt | Neutral Skirt | Black Pixie Pants | Over the Knee Boots (budget friendly here) | Statement Bag

With a fresh start and new year, I find that it is the best time to simplify your every day life (and closet.) Personally, I love to invest in basics and staple pieces that can be worn for years to come. Here are my top eight items that I believe are the perfect addition to every girls closet, during this time of year. They can easily be mixed with other items you own and will be investments you will not regret. xx
