Birthday Weekend

Hello! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Last week was busy…yet exhausting, hence the silence over here.

I threw this outfit on on Friday night to kick off my birthday weekend. I officially turned the corner into my mid 20’s, and the boy planned a fabulous weekend to celebrate. We ate and drank plenty, worked out outside, and spent plenty of time wandering around the city. I knew we would be going out on Saturday night, so Friday night I planned casual pizza and a pub in the Lower East Side. It was a great end to a busy week, and great start to a very happy weekend. Other than the slight issue that I need a cushion in my party shoes- not a good idea to break in new shoes on crumbly sidewalks.

How was your weekend?

Happy Monday! I have a busy week ahead of me, but after a fun and relaxing weekend, I feel ready to go. Also, Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful moms- especially my own who is an absolute superstar.

I wore this outfit a few weeks ago. Originally I was wearing black skinny pants for a meeting, but switched into my new skinny jeans for the rest of the day. I always love the classic twist that is cuffed skinny pants and towering heels.  Also, this was my first foray into the neon trend, and I have to say I loved the attention grabbing bold look.

Happy Monday! Or seeing as it’s almost 10am and I’m still feeling groggy…it’s Monday. I hope you had a great weekend with some St. Patrick’s Day fun. It was absolutely gorgeous here and from the weather report it looks like spring is here to stay.

I wore this outfit Thursday for an early start to the weekend. We went to BLT Burger (you must try one of these burgers if you are in NYC, they are fantastic!) and sat at the bar to take in the March Madness action. The server was incredibly sweet and said she loved how I dressed up my shirt with a “girly necklace.” As grateful as I was for her thoughtful compliment, my mouth was completely full of burger goodness so all I could do was nod and somewhat snort while trying not to choke- very stylish.

Urban Style Seeker

Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend! Winter resettled back on the city just in time to foil the plans of everyone trying to sport their spring ensembles for Fashion Week. I entered this weekend with few plans other than settling on a great outfit for my friend’s wedding next weekend. This mission turned into a bit of a debacle, as you can pretty much count on when trying to find the “perfect” piece at the 11th hour. Despite this, my “hiking boots” carried me on a blazing trail through Soho, the West Village, and finished at a Belgian beer bar to rest my feet.

P.S: This Joe Fresh sweater was an absolute steal! I strolled into the Flatiron District outpost for a split second last week and found a rack of $9-$19 sweaters and blouses along the back wall. I highly suggest you check it out for some mid season staples!

The First Snow

This weekend New York received the first snow fall of the season. It came considerably later than last year, but after last year’s massive snow storms and long recovery, I didn’t particularly mind the delay.

Saturday morning we woke up to cloudy skies and a solid dusting of untouched powder. Late in the afternoon, feeling less groggy from my cold, we wandered to the west side which was a virtual white ghost town.  The river was choppy, and there were a few very brave joggers, but otherwise the paths were smooth, slushy, and empty.

It is hard to feel particularly stylish when completely bundled up against the elements. However, I am pleasantly surprised by these thick knit Hue leggings. I loved the look of these immediately, but doubted how they would hold up in truly chilly temperatures. Thankfully, the sweater knit is entirely opaque, very warm, and a great change up from standard cotton leggings and skinny jeans to tuck into your snow boots.
