Pocono weekend!

Hey all! Sorry I was lame the past two days and didn’t get a chance to post, but I was extra busy packing for my mini-vacation this weekend with my darlin’ Nicky. We headed up after work Friday, but before I left I was sure to snap a few photos of my outfit:

This big scarf is actually a wrap, and it is the most comfortable blanket shawl sweater scarf in the world.

I layered up underneath with a tight thermal with a sleeve detail and a flowy top over it.

Cozy textures and Knee High How-To’s

This week has been a long one, but it ended on an amazing Saturday of work at Woodcliff, tea, and finally getting home to my heated blanket. I was feeling pretty inspired by the sunrise this morning, which is what I used to create day two of my outfit challenge:

Long tunics can sometimes look overwhelming, try tying it or tucking it in on the side with a delicate mini.

I absolutely love thigh high socks, I usually pair slouchy socks with knee-high boots, knee-highs that stay tight to your legs look great with high boots, as well as little booties too!!

Have a wonderful night! join me tomorrow for a day full of face masks, my favorite smelling soaps, and cozy sweaters.

Outfit Challenge!!

I am very excited to announce that I will be doing an outfit challenge for the month of January! I will be posting daily on my Instagram, and hopefully as much as possible on here!

If there are any outfits on my Instagram that aren’t featured on my blog that you are interested in knowing more about please let me know!

Today’s outfit had a cozy bohemian feel:

On top I am wearing the open shoulder pullover by Free People- one of my new favorites, which I am sure will serve as a wonderful transition piece when spring finally arrives. I try to get the most possible use out of every item I purchase, so that I can wear it throughout as many seasons as possible.

I’m a sucker for some layering, even when it comes to jewelry. Love these FP necklaces, the shield layering necklace is even on sale, and you can find my little choker friend here.

These pants are basically my spirit animal.

Sunshine Got Me Feelin’ Fine

Today was one of the most beautiful days I’ve seen in a while now! I am so happy to have gone out today- even though I only went to class. It’s days like today that keep me going- when the weather is beautiful it doesn’t matter what I’m doing, I’m going to be sure to enjoy myself, look up at the sun and the trees and appreciate the world around me (just in time for thanksgiving!)

It is a little difficult for me to blog when my work week begins (Wednesdays), so most of my posts will be Sunday through Monday! Yesterday I had a busy day, however, shopping around Hoboken with my mother and sister! It was so nice to kick back and relax with them, I haven’t been able to spend much time with my family between work and school, so I really cherish those little moments we get together.

Today I had a tough time deciding what to wear. My mindset is ready for heavy winter layers and holiday sparkles, while the weather is still demanding light fabrics and earth tones. I decided that for today’s weather I should try to combine these ideas into one transitional fall to winter outfit.

This is what I was left with:

Let’s start with the jacket- so cozy!! This denim jacket is by Free People, and finds its way into many of my outfits. It’s lightweight enough that I’m not too hot, but cozy enough to bundle up in when the sun sets and the wind picks up.

This skirt was a dream of mine since I saw it at Urban Outfitters, and I was able to snag it when it went on sale for only $19.99! I was ecstatic to add it to my wardrobe- anything lacy and sheer is my cup of tea. I love skirts that you can show your legs through- and for short girls like me it serves as a good way to wear maxi skirts without looking too overwhelming. Today I wore a body con slip underneath, which gave me coverage up top and below.

This tank is only $20 from Free People and I find myself wearing it so often! I love this green color, but the other colors are great too! (I have it in white, black, and green!!) It’s cute to just hang, but I really like to tie it on the side or tuck it into my jeans or shorts.

People have been commenting on my hair quite a bit recently, asking where I get my hair done and they seem surprised when I tell them I do it myself. I will soon be posting a more detailed description of what I do to get this pastel color, so stay tuned!! Have a great rest of your Monday and keep checking for more posts!
