Maroon aka my new favorite color for fall (besides blue…pretty apparent with how often I wear it :p). Since Thanksgiving is this week, it’s about time I take a break from my love of neon and embrace the darker hues…along with that, embrace booties, sweaters (like this cozy Uniqlo one) + floppy hats. So what’s my ‘statement‘ item in this festive look (totally holiday dinner appropriate)…this fab Vera Bradley leopard satchel.My booties are from NYLA, but I found a similar pair on sale from Kohls (+ even more on sale during Black Friday sales) here! These are great to wear to Thanksgiving dinner (or if you are like my friends, Thanksgiving Eve…girl’s night out what what!)
Fun prints are always ‘in‘ no matter what the season…this leopard satchel from Vera Bradley is the perfect fall handbag and will make a statement at your Thanksgiving gathering! Plus it comes in a variety of prints and colors!
Mondays are made for…new spring outfit inspo. I hope everyone had a great weekend (I know I sure did!) and had a Happy Mother’s Day! I spent my weekend embracing the fabulous weather and beginning my search for perfect clothes for my upcoming trip to LA! It is quite challenging to find trendy, sexy yet cute and casual picks that are ideal for a little getaway…sooo safe to say my search rages on…
Well let me first start off by saying ‘Happy New Year‘! Crazy how we are starting a blank page in a new 365 page book (yes, I saw that quote all over instagram and had to incorporate it somehow into my first New Year post). It’s time for a New Year and a New outfit post…naturally I chose to show off an outfit shot in 2014 in slightly warmer weather (although I insist on wearing skirts year round…even when it is snowing out…I have no shame)! So here’s to an awesome outfit to kick off 2015…a maroon moment!I love rocking a floppy hat especially one that matches my suede booties. A maroon floppy hat is something I tend to get a lot of use out of because it’s the slight pop of color and much needed accessory any outfit requires to stand out. Plus this one is on sale from TopShop for Nordstrom here.My floral kimono cardigan came from a local Long Island boutique but I found a similar one from Urban Outfitters here (and for $50 it’s a total steal). As for my maroon skater skirt I found a similar one at Nordstrom as well for under $30 here.This watch has been one of my favorite goodies sent to me in the year 2014…this Caravelle NY watch is one of my go to’s in my daily line up and it is simple, chic and goes with everything…total must have.I haven’t rocked my Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote in a while because I always go straight to my ‘Affair Bag’ or my ‘Mini Mac Bag’ but now that I’ve worn it again I think you will be seeing a lot more of it in the new year! And last but not least…the shoes. I bought these maroon suede Calvin Klein booties over a year ago and I found them again at Lord & Taylor for just $32! Yes, these booties can be yours for $32…get on it ladies 😉 I hope you all had a festive New Year’s Eve night…be sure to stop by tomorrow to see how I transitioned one of my New Year’s Eve pieces into a ‘Girl’s Night Out’ ensemble 🙂 Nothing sucks more than snagging a great piece for a holiday and never wearing it again…luckily tomorrow I will have a solution + a NEW Instagram Giveaway that begins today and is live for 48 hours!| Click To Shop My Look |
