    Mellow Yellow

    20131208-090113.jpgHappy Sunday Fashion Lovers!

    I’m feeling quite bright and cheery this Sunday morning for a few reasons:

    1) I’m loving these neon yellow ‘Hue’ jeggings from Bloomingdales, showing that neon can be worn year round because come on, who wants to hide this in the back of your closet? Not me!

    2) I’m beyond excited to see my amazing boyfriend today! He’s been in Israel for 2 weeks and I’m getting him from the airport later today…that whole feeling of a giddy school girl with butterflies in her stomach…well that’s me today because I am thrilled to finally see him in person rather than just face timing every night 🙂

    3) I’m well rested from this hectic week at the FFANY Shoe Show. Although looking at all the FFANY social media it may look like fun and games, glitz and glam, and a shoe lovers dream…trade shows can definitely be exhausting when your running them, so a little R&R is always necessary!

    What I love about this look is that it shows you can mix and match seasonal pieces year round. Yup, my mom definitely thought I was nuts when I ordered bright yellow jeggings, but paired with basic flats, a blue bag and an oversized sweater, I’m thinking this is a perfect fall outfit, don’t you?

    Cozy, Casual, Friday

    20131206-092256.jpg
    Today is the day! The last day of the FFANY Shoe Show and it’s almost time for me to go home for the weekend and finally see my boyfriend after his two week trip to Israel (which based on his Instagram pics is gorgeous by the way)!

    In true ‘Friday’ fashion I love a casual look that is also a little ‘dressy’! I got this plain black dress at Macy’s years ago, layered it with an Old Navy cardigan, added a cute belt and some high black boots and voila, an outfit!

    I love this look because it can translate from day to night and is such an easy look!

    Wish me luck for the last crazy day here at FFANY & Shop my OOTD below:

    ‘Lust VS. Must’ – Quilted Blue Bag

    Screen Shot 2013-11-08 at 1.28.55 PM

    I spotted this cobalt blue beauty on a few fashion bloggers and I instantly fell in love. Naturally I have taste for the finer things in life, however I certainly don’t have the budget to buy them, so on this week’s edition of ‘Lust vs. Must’ I bring to you the cheaper yet still chic version of the cobalt blue Chanel bag I fell head over *heels* for!

    While I couldn’t find an exact price on this Chanel show stopper, I’m sure it’s in the thousands, so I found a few great options to try!

    My ‘Must’ piece I actually purchased myself. It’s by the brand ‘Paradox’ available at Lord & Taylor and with all the sales and coupons only cost me $99! See how I styled it: here.

    Some other great quilted blue bag options I found are also reasonably affordable. I happen to have a love for Rebecca Minkoff, especially her handbags, so I fell in love when I found her ‘Affair’ bag in blue! You can get the large version with studs at either Nordstrom or Zappos, or the ‘mini’ version without studs at Nordstrom!

    If your a Michael Kors fan your in luck! Michael has a great quilted blue bag on sale at Piperlime for $213! I love the metal closure on the front and it’s also a perfect going out bag since it’s small and compact!

    A Little Leopard Moment

    20131204-082357.jpg
    Happy Wednesday Fashionistas!

    Today is a crazy day for me because it is the first day of the FFANY Shoe Show in NYC! That means work, work, work for me….followed by tons of killer shoes and great pics to share with you all!

    I love this look because it is simple yet chic. My go to is always a nice pair of Val or dark wash denim, like these Flying Monkey jeans from Graffiti Boutique. Pair it with a simple white blouse, layer a nice little vest and add a hint of leopard and I’m sold!

    I scored these adorable and comfortable leopard pumps at Target…for how much? $8! Yes people, cute footwear doesn’t need to cost a fortune, or at least mine doesn’t 😉

    Have a Happy Humpday & Shop my OOTD below:

    Now Stop, Travel Time!

    20131203-073428.jpg
    Happy Tuesday Fashion Lovers! I’m off to the Big Apple for the December FFANY Shoe Show…that means prepare yourself for plenty of ‘shoe’ related photos and posts…best part? They are all styles not yet available in stores..meaning, I’ll be giving you a sneak peek into the ‘Fashion Week’ of the shoe world!

    Although I’m just going from Long Island, I don’t know about you but I seem to have a tough time conserving suitcase space and just bringing the bare necessities….so I felt quite grown up when I scored this 30′ inch bright purple suitcase at TJ Maxx with a ‘Maxxinista’ gift card I won! Not only is it my fav color but…it practically paid for itself…pretty awesome if you ask me!

    In addition, you know I can’t go anywhere without my trustee Louis Vuitton Neverfull (my pretend ‘carry on’ for the Long Island railroad)!

    Another thing I’m super excited about? The awesome photos coming to the blog…I enlisted the help of my little sister Heather and she is quite the photographer…best part? She never requires cash, just Baked By Melissa…sounds like a sweet deal if you ask me!
