What To Wear Traveling

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 2 comments

I’m pretty sure you guys have noticed that I’ve been traveling quite a bit lately. So with that in mind, I thought I’d share my favorite go-to ensemble for traveling in case you might have a trip of your own coming up. (Or, if like me, you really just love any excuse to talk about cute clothes.) My go-to items are always a great scarf (because planes can get chilly), a cute umbrella (so you’re not caught in the rain …

What To Wear: Valentine’s Day Date

What To Wear: Valentine’s Day Date

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 5 comments

Well, I’ll be danged. Can you even believe that Valentine’s Day is next week? As in, a week from tomorrow. Wow. Why, hello, mid-February, where did you come from? Naturally I couldn’t let the occasion pass us by without talking about a little Valentine’s Day appropriate fashion. Date night fashion, naturally. This look is super feminine and romantic and I’m kind of digging it for that reason. An impossibly pretty floral dress, a rockin’ pair of booties all decked out …

It’s Friday, friends, which means we get to talk about pretty things for no good reason other than we want to. Or at least I want to! I swear my online window shopping tendencies seem to know no bounds these days. And I definitely think I’m starting to get the spring itch, because it’s all about bright and punchy colors for me lately. You know. Spring. That elusive season that’s still months off in my neck of the woods. That …

Have you guys heard about Vine? If you haven’t, you absolutely need to check it out. Think of it like Instagram but with short 6 second video clips. You can make stop motion videos or just show off little snippets of your day. Yesterday I posted a video showcasing some of my favorite beauty products and I thought I’d share them with you, too. I’ve posted about beauty essentials more than once, so I thought a quick update on a few …

Guys, I can’t believe it’s already time for Alt Summit, but it’s officially here! I am traveling this morning (currently blogging at you live from the Delta terminal at JFK) and really looking forward to meeting up with everyone in Salt Lake City later today. Which, of course, means much of my last few days have been spent planning outfits and packing. It’s no exaggeration that Alt is a true fashionista’s dream, the perfect chance to rock whatever trend-of-the-moment you’ve …

What to Wear: Winter Casual

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 3 comments

Now that the holidays are fading into distant memory, it really feels like winter around here. As in, yes, I really wish spring were going to be here soon. But I’m a realistic kind of girl and I know we’ve got at least three more months of cold chills and winter doldrums here in upstate New York. So I am doing what any reasonable girl does under the circumstances by lusting after gorgeous velvet blazers and cozy oversized scarves. It’s only …

Tis the season when festive occasions abound! That’s probably one of my favorite things about this time of year – there’s no shortage of excuses to rock a bit of sparkle! This outfit is perfect for enjoying a few holiday cocktails, whether it be at a party, out on the town for a Tom and Jerry, or sipping bubbly on Christmas Eve with family. I love pairing glittery sequins with black to keep the look super chic and sophisticated. Add a …

I know for a lot of you who are way more organized about these things than I am, you’ve already been hitting the stores in search for the perfect holiday gifts and baubles. If you’re like me and you’re not quite there, the time is coming up quickly! Let’s face it. Shopping this time of year can feel a little bit like a rat race, so comfort is key.

Can you seriously believe that Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away? I have no idea where 2012 has gone! But I’m not complaining because I just love this time of year. For Thanksgiving I like to dress up a bit, but keep it comfy. (Because let’s face it. We all like to be comfy when we’re sneaking a second slice of pie!) Our Thanksgiving this year is going to involve nearly 20 people, a whole bunch of kids, loads …
