We are at the halfway mark…it is Wednesday and the weekend can’t come soon enough. I’m not sure if it’s the weather or if I have just been completely overwhelmed lately, but I have been so exhausted to the point where I find myself half asleep when attempting to blog (sorry if I begin rambling and not making any sense :p) When organizing my iPhoto library (one of the many things on my to-do list) I came across this look shot pre-winter snow and forgot how much I LOVE a black floppy hat.
In the spirit of Coachella this weekend, I definitely plan on incorporating this hat into future spring looks…because this is my mild version of a flower crown haha :p Speaking of Coachella, I really wish I was going to be there this weekend, but no…I get to stay here in rainy NYC #SoNotFair
Friday can never come soon enough…after an exhausting work week I am fully ready to enjoy the weekend! This week has been insane for me because my car was in the shop since Monday getting repaired for it to go back from it’s lease tomorrow (RIP ‘Yup JR’). For those of you who haven’t seen my license plate, it reads Yup Jr…almost everyone asks me what it stands for so here is the scoop…
My dad is a big car guy and loves vanity license plates (who doesn’t like to make a statement…even when it comes to their car right? :p) so one of his vehicles has the license plate ‘Yup‘ so naturally I became ‘Yup Jr‘…why did he name his truck Yup? Well for any of you who are familiar with Dodge and their vehicles here it goes :: There was a commercial back in 2006 where a Challenger + a Charger pull up to a red light and the guy in the Charger asks the guy in the Challenger “Does that thing have a Hemi (engine)?” and the guy in the Challenger simply responds “YUP”….and bam…Yup was born…along with Yup JR. Well this weekend Yup Jr is going into retirement and being replaced with a brand new baby…You will just have to follow me on SnapChat :: MissyOnMadison to see what I get next 😉
Happy Wednesday Lovers! So it may be rainy and cold this week but I discovered a way to brighten things up around here…with a colorful outfit post…duh! Contrary to popular belief neon isn’t just for summer…case and point…this look 😉 I can never have too much color in my wardrobe…it’s what makes me me! I based this whole look off of two fabulous pieces…1) This neon Kendra Scott Necklace + 2) This Neiman Marcus cobalt blue tote…both of which I am in LOVE with <3 My shoes remind me of Chanel…why? Because they are classic tweed except with a twist…an open toe! (P.S. I am selling them on my Poshmarkhere) They are comfortable, classy and are perfect for the office…year round!Now for the rest of the look…I had a thing for quilted in this post. Black quilted vest, gray quilted skirt…I just love quilted stitching…it’s timeless and always looks ‘put together’.To make the look a little different, I opted for a chambray button down (this one from Gilt is great)…I kinda had a thing for blue hues if you couldn’t already tell…speaking of…Yup, mirrored aviators…something every gal is after AND they make an awesome holiday gift for gals of all ages! My sister is 14 and is obsessed with her Ray Bans and my mom can even be seen rocking a pair from time to time…what does this tell us? Mirrored aviators…a holiday MUST! I wish the weather was warmer so that I could actually rock this colorful number but hey for now I will accept just sharing it with you 🙂 BTW as I am writing this I am watching the first episode of Bravo’s new series ‘Girlfriends Guide To Divorce’…and I am OBSESSED.

Happy Tuesday lovers I am finally facing reality that I need to accept that the weather on Long Island and in the Big Apple is cold…so that means time for some serious fall outfits…like this flannel one from Old Navy! I am loving flannel for fall…real innovative I know, but another thing I am especially obsessed with this fall…Old Navy and no they aren’t sponsoring this post, I just have a slight addiction to their sales, deals and steals. They have tons of different flannel button downs all on sale for 30% off till tomorrow with code ‘SAVE‘ (on top of the already reduced prices!)…Can you say time to shop?!My black quilted vest was an Old Navy find as well except it is from last year and no longer available, so I found a similar one from Banana Republic that is just if not more amazing here. I also have a thing for a little faux leather for fall…these Lysse faux leather trim leggings are not just comfortable but also can be dressed up or down for a day to night look, plus these look mint with flannel don’t ya think? 😉 Had to of course include a little sparkle with this Kendra Scott Druszy ring…I swear this was one of the best blogger gifts I have ever received. I had to add a pop of color to this black and white look with this Olivia & Joy bag available in black and red! I switched up my watch game with this post by opting for a little silver rather than my ever favorite gold link watch…but I think I will have to start wearing this silver one a lot more.My shoes are actually from Payless, but I found a similar pair from Dolce Vita here. These open toe booties add a little extra something to any casual look and are totally on trend this season.| Click To Shop & Enter My Newest Giveaway HERE |
