Wednesday Wish List

It’s sale season and therefore today’s Wednesday Wish List is dedicated to Shopbop’s new sale additions. There are so many good items that are able to be purchased on sale now and be worn through Spring and Summer and I’ve rounded up my favorites.

BB Dakota Check Print Dress // Croc Crossbody Bag // Gold Clutch (great for special occasions) // Horn Necklace //

Black Jumpsuit (so good year round! I’d wear it with these) //

Slim Illusion Black Skinny Jeans //

Monogram Bottle Stopper (only $10!) // Elizabeth Cole Earrings // Cage Sandals

Initial Pouch (makes a great gift! I have it as well!)

I also love this jacket, this skirt (the pockets!) and this sweater.

I hope you’re having a good a week! I’m focusing on trying to get some R&R and take care of myself. I’m re-watching House of Cards with my roommates (god, it is so good that I’m watching it all again!) and listening to this station to put me in a good mood at the end of stressful days.


outfit // satisfied









Today’s look is another black, white and red look (a bit different than last week’s) and ever since buying them I’ve been wearing these Joie heels everywhere (here, here).

I had such a satisfying weekend. I hadn’t been in New York for a weekend in nearly 5 weeks so it was the perfect opportunity to see friends and catch up on things. I fit in seeing my friends’ new downtown Brooklyn apartment (taco night!), some shopping (I bought this), a mani/pedi, dinner in the neighborhood, a coffee date, a Flywheel class and brunch with my brother. I’m starting this week happy to know I have Friday off and determined to make this an efficient week to enjoy the long weekend ahead. Frankly of late I’ve been feeling restless and somewhat frustrated by life in New York City so I’m hoping to use Labor Day weekend as a source for rest and inspiration to find that dose of love for this wild city that I know I’ve had before!

I hope you had a great weekend and have a wonderful Monday…

Outfit: LOFT eyelet top (on super sale!), Club Monaco skirt (last seen here), Levi’s jacket (on sale!), Foley + Corinna Mid-City Tote, Joie Remy heels (similar here), BaubleBar necklace (sold out but I love this one) + BaubleBar x Stripes & Sequins ring, Karen Walker Anywhere sunglasses

outfit // spring like + a life update







Thanks for bearing with me during the past few days of radio silence. Last Tuesday my world got thrown a major curve ball when I was told that, due to structural damage discovered in my apartment building, I had to evacuate immediately and until further notice. Well it turns out that further notice is looking like a month and I most likely need to find a new place to live. I’ll spare you all the painstaking details that have given me so much emotional distress (literally have either been feeling like I am going to throw up or start sobbing at nearly every turn for the last 7 days – and yes, both did happen – the latter on a rather regular basis) but I’m living at friends’ places until I can figure out my next move and it pretty much is less than ideal. No one likes being a nomad and I just want to find a solution to this living nightmare. Wish me luck will you?

Until some things get resolved my posting will be more limited. I’m living with about a dozen pieces of clothing (how great when you have a fashion blog, right?!) and feeling so stressed/tired that I’m just struggling right now. If you’ve got any good vibes I’d love for you to send them my way! You have no idea how grateful I’d be…

Wore this outfit the other week to work when the weather dipped above 45 and it was like ALL HAIL THE SUN! Ways to get the look below.

Outfit: Banana Republic dress (old and swiped from my friend B’s closet), Joie jacket, Corso Como boots (similar on sale here), Foley + Corinna bag, Warby Parker sunglasses, Sorrelli necklace, Cuyana scarf
