Distressed denim and a knit tee has to be my go to everyday look! If you don't know I have a two year old so most of my day is spent chasing him around or hitting the parks, so I love to keep it casual on a day to day basis. The best part about keeping it casual is that you can add some fun elements to a simple look to make it stand out. I can't get enough of these knotted low heel sandals I knew when I had purchased them that they would be the pair of shoes I would wear a lot this season.  This shoe is so versatile it works with a casual look or you can throw them on with a pretty maxi for a sunday brunch. And as for these sunnies, I just can't get enough of them, best $55 I've ever spent!



Monday's are for must have's! Today's must haves consists of some things I have my eye on for spring and for my Florida trip at the end of April. Some of these Items are on major sale and others I just love so much. I'm slightly obsessed with all of the shoes I liked below.  I have to say this season, I think has some of the best shoes ever! If you have any questions about any of these items be sure to shoot me message using the contact form !



Sometimes it's all about a stand out top . A blouse that really says it all, its the show stopper! Ruffles, silk or a bold print! Pair this piece with your favorite pair of denim or a skirt for a night out. This blouse is a versatile piece, one that can be recycled and worn a few different ways. We all need a stand out top in our wardrobe, so i've selected my favorite ones for you to shop below! 



Hello & happy hump day, we got buried in 2 and half feet of snow yesterday. I am seriously so over this weather, I need the spring! I've been updating my closet for spring and I'm ready to start wearing it all now! That's the one thing I hate about New York, the cold weather can sort of linger on. I love the season changes and I don't mind the cold, but enough is enough. I think we've got some more snow on our radar for the coming week.. sigh. I guess I'll just keep waiting and hoping spring arrives soon.

This was one of the tops I added into my wardrobe for spring, ruffles and cold shoulders, could it be any more perfect? I've been all about both of these trends lately and when I saw this amazing top, I knew I had to have it. Oh and it's blush ... obviously had to be mine. 

The best part is that it's priced under $40! YUP, it's a steal! All of the items in this look are recent purchases and are each under $40. These booties have been on major repeat but they are the perfect heel for just about any look. They come in this grey color and also black.



Hello loves, I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite items! There's tons of sales going on and I've been doing a lot of online shopping getting ready for spring so today's posts consists of some of my favorite finds at the moment. I literally want everything on this list! There's a few things I have bought from this list and a few more I have my eye on! Make sure you hover over the items to see some of the amazing prices, too good to pass up. Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead, over here in New York, we are getting ready to get snow in! Sigh.... no signs of spring just yet .



I am all about a staple piece, a go to top that works for just about any occasion.  I'm talking about a top that's so versatile you can through it on to run your daily errands,  perfect for a last minute date night look or for a night out with your girlfriends. This is the kind of pieces I like to stock my wardrobe with. A piece thats constructed well and has a special look to it, not just your average cotton tee.  

This blouse from Banana Republic is going to be a staple in my closet, I've worn it with denim and sneakers to run to the grocery store. I wore it out to dinner with booties and a moto jacket it's a piece that just works for anything and it's a piece that takes on a different look with whatever it's styled with.

This past weekend, myself and Karen of Ever B. Styled hosted a blogger brunch in New York City. We got together our favorite New York/ New Jersey bloggers and we all met over Brunch at New York City's The Gander. I mean what better way to mingle and get to know each other than over mimosas and delicious food!

The Gander in NYC is the perfect spot to brunch, lunch or meet over drinks. Located in one of my favorite areas in Manhattan, just south of Flat Iron.  There's tons of fun cocktails to chose and the food is exquisite! Have you ever watched Iron Chef!?  Well, Jesse Schenker who had won the Iron Chef, is the chef at The Gander! So really, the entire menu is out of this world. 

The floral arrangements were done by Unique Flowers NJ and they were absolutely breathtaking. The florist did such a wonderful job at bringing out vision to life and really tying together the brunch. The centerpieces were  filled with some of my absolute favorite flowers, anemone's and garden roses! I really couldn't stop staring at them the entire brunch! Also, every girl got to take home a gorgeous little succulent of their own. The gorgeous little place settings were designed by Charlie Whiskey Design, they were one of my favorite details, the textured paper and bronze calligraphy was so dreamy.

We really all had such a wonderful brunch sipping our cocktails, stuffing our faces and laughing until we cried at moments. It's so nice to connect with local bloggers and I am so happy I made eight new girlfriends! 

I wanted to thank everyone that was a part of making this brunch happen. A special thank you to Angelene the photographer for photographing the entire brunch and providing us with gorgeous photos! Thank you to The Gander for hosting us. Also  thank you to Unique Flowers NJ in Hoboken, NJ for the Florals. Thank you to Charlie Whiskey Design for the place settings. Thank you to Maybelline, LondontownUSA & Olive And Piper for all the blogger goodie bags.
