I hope ya’ll had a great weekend + a happy Monday! I’ve been swamped with work, events + planning my BF’s birthday…we finally decided on Vegas so stay tuned for lots of fun posts from there! I haven’t been to Vegas in a year + my boo hasn’t been there in like 5 years so we are ready to have some fun…while we aren’t big gamblers, we are fully scoping out the roller coasters, shows + attractions haha :p
Over the weekend I was going through photo archives + found this look that was shot over 2 years ago + figured it was about time I posted it haha. I truly can’t remember where I got any of these pieces as they were from a few years ago, but I do remember this great leather fold-over clutch is from one of my favorite brands, GiGi New York!
I have always loved polka dots, so this fun wall paired with a cute polka dot skirt is exactly what I had in mind. I believe I got this skirt at Urban Outfitters but I found a similar one from Forever 21 here. I paired the skirt with a simple white crop top + white moto jacket.
I personally feel every gal should have a white crop top + white moto jacket in her wardrobe as they are key staples that can be mixed + matched with everything!
I have been a fan of GiGi New York for years. Their bags are amazing quality at a great price, plus they are made on Long Island, where I am from!
This bag is perfect for any occasion as the gray hue matches with a lot + it comes with a detachable leather cross body strap so you can wear the bag multiple ways.
Happy Halloween!! While I am not one to really dress up (you know…because I am too cool for school :p hehe) I figured I would share this ‘school girl‘ inspired outfit since it is practically like a costume for me haha 🙂 I was never a big Halloween person, I am not sure if it’s just because I don’t really like dressing up in costumes or because horror and gore scare the sh*t out of me haha (I am definitely a bit chicken) but I much prefer laying low Halloween time. So with that said, Halloweekend was pretty quiet for me…just how I like it!
Funny enough, I realized that this look kinda reminded me of something a school girl would wear…so hey for today’s sake, it’s my costume haha! I love this look for fall. It’s a great way to style a plaid button down shirt in a different way! Normally I always layered it casually with jeans, but I kind of loved this combo of it with a crop top + skater skirt.
Happy Humpday! The holiday weekend has me all messed up this week (I was about to just write ‘Happy Tuesday’ oops :p) anyways…it may just be Wednesday but I am most certainly ready for the weekend! I am officially moved in to my new apartment…decor and all (stay tuned for my home tour post…nothing better than decor for less that looks ‘Carrie Bradshaw esq) and I can’t wait to throw a little housewarming party and begin enjoying the perks of living alone! It still feels unreal to me to wake up to peace and quiet, sunshine and tons of natural light…#MyHappyPlace. My other ‘happy place‘? Blogging from the comfort of my new comfy chair at my new desk ♥ Ahh you guys will love my set up 😛 For a look at what I have set up so far, follow me on SnapChat – MISSYONMADISON!
I kept my accessories simple and they are ‘look for less‘ affordable versions of timeless classics. I have been dreaming of buying the quilted classic Chanel bag, but for now…while I am on a budget and spending all of my money on interior decor for my new apartment (haha #oops), I decided this Rebecca Minkoff Affair Bag is the perfect alternative!
Nothing says it’s almost time for the weekend quite like a casual look shot in Venice 😉 I have been stressed beyond belief with work and apartment hunting (every one is telling me I am on the hunt way too early but hey, finding the perfect place ain’t easy!) It reminds me of one of Carrie Bradshaw’s famous lines from Sex and The City ‘In New York you’re always looking for a job, a boyfriend or an apartment‘. Well guess what…same applies to LA haha 😉 Finding the best of everything takes time (especially for me who chooses to #NeverSettle)
For example, finding the best when it comes to dating (ha)…total challenge. LA is the place of everyone trying to sound better than they are, fake careers, stories etc. An account I am completely obsessed with that sums it all up is @OverheardLA! I started following it a couple of months ago and am constantly tagging my friends in the posts…I mean legit blows The Fat Jewish out of the water (especially because the statements are so truly LA)!
Similar to dating, apartment hunting is also deceiving, confusing and occasionally disappointing. Photos online may look great…then in person, not so much haha All about timing and location, if it’s meant to be it’ll be (kinda funny how that same motto typically applies to dating right? :p) Any who…one thing I find meant to be…was scoring this Olive Green Vest from Burlington…on sale for just $15! Y A Y!
