LOFT crewneck sweater / Brave Soul studded coat / J.Crew fitted pants / Fergie black low heel boots / ALDO strap shoes / Stud earring set / Black jewelry

This moto-jacket is pretty affordable compared to others.  Asos does it again for $105.  You can dress it in different ways.  I couldn't pick which boot I wanted to style it with, so I'm showing both. Keep your accessories simple!

Casual Date Night with a Girlfriend

Casual Date Night



Tart green hooded cape / 7 For All Mankind clothing / Steven by Steve Madden low heel wedge boots / Topshop handbag, $94 / Bulova wrist watch / Stella Dot pave chain bracelet / Stella Dot pave spike bracelet / Kohl jewelry / LOFT black infinity scarf

Looking forward to this weekend even though I had this past week off.  We have a Post Holiday- ugly sweater party tonight that I'm not so excited about.  The only reason I'm not excited is because my ugly sweater is soooo ugly! It ain't got no alibi!  I mean some sweaters are ugly cute, but not mine!  So gross!  I'll post it to show you.
Any way, last night I met a girlfriend out for a drink.  We haven't hung out in about 2 weeks, so we needed to get together and catch up!  It's still freezing in NY so this poncho was the first thing I pulled from my closet and then everything else was styled around this.  How cute is this, from Nordstrom Rack!  
Ponchos are great to style for any size lady, this also works well for preggo ladies also!
What item in your closet is your go-to for cold weather??

Daily Commute

Daily Commute




Back to work today and I'm not happy about it.  It's casual Friday in my office so it's not too bad.  The weather in NY is freezing so trying to stay warm during my commute while still looking cute is what I was going for today.  
What do you wear during your commute?

Floral Print Blazer at work

Floral Print Blazer at work



Floral Blazers are in right now and I like that this one isn't too busy.  Being a larger girl I don't like to wear a very loud print on top, this one is just right.  Pair it with a leather skirt and cute boots and you can take this from the office to happy hour.  Hope your Holidays are going awesome!!  Almost time to get back to the grind, enjoying my time off right now!!

NYE Party Option

NYE Party Attire



Zara short dress / LOFT lace bootie / Clutch purse / Bracelets jewelry / Charlotte Russe ball earrings

For our last December linkup, what better way to bring in the New Year than with a Glamorous New Years Eve Party!  
I chose this peplum dress because it can be worn for many different occasions.  I'm all about getting double and triple use out of items.  Dress it up or down and for $80 from Zara last year, this is def a winner!  These fun lace booties are from The Loft and something about them screams sexy/fun.  I'm loving charcoal and mint together, the dark background really makes the jewelry pop. Add a smokey eye with some light sparkle (age appropriate) and you will be the HOT hostess that everyone wonders... "How does she do it?"

 You can even wear this dress to work, add a blazer and tights and work appropriate booties and statement necklace, G2G! (good to go).


Happy Holidays!

Summer Date Night & Forever21

Summer Date Night


Poverty Flats clutch
nordstrom.com




Vince Camuto Lyssia

CLOTHING
forever21.com



Forever21 has some cute summer clothes right now and of course they are very wallet friendly too.  One thing that you have to be careful of is quality.  Sometimes I'm ok with buying cheap quality clothes, if I only plan on wearing them a couple times.  The "cost per wear" equals out, similar to an item I plan on keeping and wearing for a long time. This dress is $28.  How can you beat that?? If you wear it 3 times this summer the "cost per wear" is under $10, then you can transfer it to a beach coverup and wear it the whole month of August. (and longer if you are in the south and Cali.)
One way I would def wear this is for date night.  Pair it with cute casual wedges and simple jewelry and you are ready for dinner outdoors and a stroll by the water. 
What are your thoughts about Forever21 clothes??

I'm baaaaaaaaack!  After a way too long hiatus, I'm back biatches!  Life happened, moving happened, unpacking happened, eh.... thank God things are finally slowing down.  

Now that the nice weather is finally here, all I can think about is tan shoes.  Tan wedges, tan booties, tan heels, love them all.  Here are some options that are hot right now.  I chose to highlight some dressy, some casual and some that can be used for both.  I ordered the Vince Camuto Lyssia's (middle left) and can't wait to get them.  They can be worn casually with shorts and a tank, or dressed up with a dress for work.  The Sam Edelman Kenya's are another pair that can be worn both ways.  The Seychelles pair are really just casual and the others are on the dressier side. 

Which one's are your favorite??  Have you ordered your tan pair yet?  Let me know!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  
Ughhh back to work I go tomorrow, after about an 8 day break.  Not looking forward to getting up early, but I am excited to get up and get dressed for the day (as I sit here on my couch in my pajamas in the middle of the afternoon).  After over-eating during the holidays, I'm also excited to get back to eating clean and hitting up the box. (Crossfit gym)  With that said, I will be wearing some loose fitting outfits for the first couple of weeks until I get some weight off.  A loose fitting blouse and  stretchy pencil skirt it is!  Throw on a statement necklace and make it through your first day back!

Favorite Ponchos

Favorite Ponchos



Gap cable poncho / Lauren Ralph Lauren plaid cape / Cejon cable knit poncho / Big Buddha cape coat / Donna Karan long slip / H M turtleneck poncho, $41 / Alfani tummy control pants / Alfani clothing

Ponchos are all the rage right now.  They are super comfy and take any outfit, from casual to dressy casual.  Take a pair of leggings and a tunic that you would wear food shopping and throw on a poncho and you are ready to meet up with a girlfriend for coffee.
 Which is your favorite?

Visiting Friends

Visiting Friends



Yellow top / H m poncho, $41 / Gap destroyed jeans / Naturalizer zip boots / ASOS satchel bag / Kate Spade bracelet jewelry / Stella Dot silver and gold jewelry / Stella Dot bracelets bangle

During the Holidays, hubby and I like to stop by friends houses for a visit.  Most of our friends have kids, so we usually are the ones to head to their house for a visit, instead of hosting.  I want to be cozy when I visit friends because I'm usually sitting on the floor playing with the kiddos, or rough housing with the family dog.  Simple sweater, skinnies and riding boots are the perfect combo for being casual, yet still looking put together (I have these riding boots and I highly recommend them, super comfy and perfect brown color).  Add some dangle earrings for a dressier look. 
What do you wear to visit friends?

Going to see the Tree.

Going to see the Tree.



J Crew merino sweater / Jack BB Dakota army green parka / 7 For All Mankind clothing / Fergie black over knee boots / Topshop black crocodile handbag / Kate Spade stainless steel watch / Stella Dot sparkle jewelry / Subtle Luxury knit scarve

Christmas week, hubby and I are planning to have a date day in NYC and going to go check out the tree and Rockefeller Center.  I have a few things on my list on what I want to do, and most of it includes walking around everywhere.  So, heels are not an option.  I'm liking these flat over the knee black boots,  they are cute even though they don't have a heel.  Walking around the city, it's going to be chilly so a cute warm jacket and snood are a must.  Dressing the outfit up a bit with fun earrings.  Since I'm going to be covered up, no need to wear an arm party or necklace, for fear of them breaking or losing them.  
What would you wear while walking around NYC?
