move your {lee} // the american dream denim

kqlahi9ru26mylovld4z_16495

it’s hard to truly explain in words how amazing this day was!  my bestie, amanda, and i woke up extra early to experience the first snow {of the day} in brooklyn.  it was beautiful so definitely worth it & we felt extra productive with the entire day ahead of us.  we grabbed cappuccinos, split an almond croissant and strolled through our favorite neighborhood.  these are the best kind of days.  even though my east coast fox & i were totally twinning, we actually have very different style.  and i love that!  but one thing we can always agree on is the necessity of a great pair of black jeans.  these “dream jeans” from lee honestly feel like cozy leggings on the inside, but they have enough durability to dress up any outfit.  we ended up spending the entire day in them, including alyssa‘s birthday party over 12 hours later.  i love something that can transition from day to night… it’s so important in new york since we’re always on the go!

dreaming of a white christmas // {kellie pickler} style

dsc_7601

last weekend my gal pals & i got together for a festive & wine-filled holiday party!  there was brie, spinach & artichoke dip, apple pie and meatballs!  all the best things right?  but what made the night even better was sharing stories about family traditions and our favorite holiday memories.  some of us have known each other for a few months and others for a few years, but we all got a little closer after a glass of pinot noir and a story about christmas gifts gone wrong!  moments like these are what make the holidays so special, and you’ll catch a few of them below.

big city of dreams // the {brooklyn} shirt

as you probably already know, i’m obsessed with new york city and everything it has to offer.  one of my favorite things about the city is that you can explore every single day and stumble upon something new… a new restaurant, an unfamiliar street, a unique view.  on this day in soho we stumbled upon an amazing mural from tristan eaton.  it took my breath away & the situation could not have been more perfect.  coincidentally enough, my top is called “the brooklyn shirt” [my second favorite borough ;)].  & no, i don’t follow the white after labor day rule, not even a little bit.

the perfect {picnic} // blogger besties

one saturday morning, four blogger besties met in strawberry fields.  the perfect picnic people met us at central park to deliver the cutest blue and white tote bag complete with a ribbon & including a picnic blanket.  we found a nice shaded spot in strawberry fields – ready to brunch, relax, and enjoy each others company.  now, hindsight is 20/20, so given the chance to do it again, we probably would not have chosen the hottest day of the year at that point [a cool 96°] for our outdoor meal.  however, the perfect picnic made our experience so so so enjoyable.  they provided all the necessities & then some!  the food ranged from assorted baguettinis, north fork potato chips, & a cheese wedge… to fresh berries, seasonal salad, & bread… even organic lemonade, homemade chocolate chip cookies, & sea salt brownies.  this was a feast fit for a king!  [or 4 queens]

{boho} in bushwick

photo2

according to wikipedia [i know, i know – reliable source], boho-chic is a style of fashion drawing on various bohemian and hippie influences.  that, i totally agree with.  but for me, “boho” is more than a style of fashion, it’s an attitude.  when i wear a boho-chic dress, like this flowy beauty from h&m, i suddenly feel different.  much more relaxed, much more easy going & free spirited, and much more cool.  i’m all about outfits that release & attract those good vibes.

elevated // {graffiti} diaries

don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love new york city.  but sometimes the city streets can be a scary place… filled with rats, old pizza, & cigarettes.  my recent shoe purchases provide a functional yet stylish solution: flatforms!  sandals or sneakers, i love the elevation & comfortability.  a little michael jackson sass goes a long way!

feathers + leathers

winter can take us into a slump.  whether it be our gym routines, social lives, or our wardrobes that suffer- it really takes a toll!  that’s why i’ve tried to snag a few out-of-the-ordinary pieces that i can wear in the winter.  pieces that bring back that fuzzy feeling (& even feel fuzzy!)  pieces that add a little fun back into the woes of winter.  i think it worked – see for yourself below.  i fully embrace the RBF all day, but sometimes you just can’t take yourself too seriously!
