Lack of Posts...

I have been in bed with the flu since early last week... blehhhh! I shut myself off from society - which means no computer and little use of the blackberry. I hope to be up and running again by the end of this week...

Happy Weekend!

Not much on the radar this weekend... Tonight we are hanging with one of the boy toys besties (can you use that term for boys??) from college... he is always a barrel of laughs. Not much going on tomorrow... hopefully going to get a long run in the morning (having the wedding seven months away is a real motivator!) and we are hoping to catch up with the boy toy's brother and his fam. So I guess our weekend is chalking up to a weekend filled with fun peeps!

Have a fabulous weekend!

70's Trend on Your Own Terms...

70's Fashion

1. / 2. / 3. / 4. / 5. / 6. / 7. / 8. / 9. / 10. / 11. /

Out with the old in with the 70's! I am a little tardy for this party on posting about the big 70's trend that is in full effect for spring and summer... but let's just call it fashionably late... shall we?? Last summer all of the buzz was geared towards 60's Mad Men inspiration - well this year it is easy, breezy boho looks and disco fever nights...

I am truly am a lover of bohemian fashion; however, it really isn't for me... (Carrie from one of my fav blogs pulls this look off every time... jealous much!) I can get away with maxi dresses and can not wait to sport a maxi skirt - but the wide leg pants and calf length skirts (short legs here people!) just aren't my friends... so this is my spin 70's fashion... if there is one thing to always remember when it comes to new trends - they aren't for everyone! Dress for your body type and your personal likes...

Spring Perfection

Oh Mr. Valentino can you please cut me some sort of deal on these lovely pumps... I promise to give them a very loving home... I just can not seem to imagine my spring/summer without them. Oh all of the weddings and events we could attend together... I can just picture it now... a lifetime of happiness together!

Sigh, just another ShoesDay dream...

You too can dream here...

Blazer Love...


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 /5

One of my favorite ways to cover up on chilly nights is to throw on a blazer... I am oh so happy that this trend isn't going anywhere this spring. A classic blazer thrown over dress or skirt equals pretty much perfection in my book!

Oh and a little hint - my favorite go-to black blazer is actually just an old Calvin Klein suit jacket (that I hadn't worn in years) - I rolled up the sleeves a couple of times and voila had my new fav staple piece without even opening my wallet!

Life's a Rainbow...

Pop O Color

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

So... I have officially been a very bad blogger lately. After we got back from NYC and I reveled in the idea of being a bride I jumped full force into wedding planning (we decided on an October wedding of this year). While the wedding has somehow already taken over all of my thoughts I have neglected my happy place... this blog and all of my fav daily reads! That stops here!

One of my favorite things about spring is retiring my boring black and tan handbags for a little pop of color every once in a while. I mean who doesn't enjoy throwing a bright and unexpected party over their shoulder?? I for one am ready to bring on the color!

I Am Back!

Outside of the Frick Collection - seriously visit this mansion turned museum... amazing!
One of my fav vintage shops to visit while in the city... score an awesome bag every time!
Box suite for the Knicks vs Lakers - boy toy had a perma grin the entire time!
The pic I was snapping and as I turned around found boy toy on one knee - you better believe this will be blown up and framed in our home forever!
The newly engaged trying not to freeze while on our way to The Plaza!
Admiring my new bling!
The Plaza Hotel
Celebrating with besties from high school - best night of my life! Ps... Bought this fabulously yellow little number at H&M - only $19.95!

I had the most ahhhhmazing time in NYC! I don't even know where to begin... we shared yummy dinners with friends... shopped... enjoyed a box suite at the Knicks vs Lakers game... strolled through a couple museums... walks in Central Park - oh and the best part... GOT ENGAGED!

It was the most magical proposal that I girl could ever ask for... walking in Central Park... the big YES... followed by celebratory cocktails at The Plaza (seriously??)... and then meeting up with friends for a delish dinner and cocktails into the night with friends and my new fiance!

I promise not to turn this little blog of mine into a wedding blog... but I just had to share the big news... I cant stop looking down at my left hand to admire my beautifully, amazing ring! I promise normal posts will resume tomorrow!

Red Eye Comfort...

Comfy Casual

1. / 2. /3. / 4. / 5. / 6.

The boy toy and I are leaving on a jet plane tonight... destination = The Big Apple! We love taking the red eye when traveling back east as we don't have to give up any of our precious vacay minutes for travel time. I will be sporting an outfit very similar to this look... comfort is key to red eye travels. I always, always travel with a large, comfy scarf as it doubles as a blanket for me on the plane. I am taking the train up to the boy toys work this evening and then off we go!

See yall when I get back!

Have a fabulous week/weekend!
