Dressing Up The Over Sized Sweater!

Hi All!

Winter has officially struck upstate NY. If you have ever lived near the Rochester/Buffalo area, you know that winter here is no joke. I’m talking about feets of snow, terrible driving conditions – if you’re car doesn’t skid once while driving to work in the morning, you’re not really experiencing an upstate winter. The worst part is that this weather leads to intense laziness, i’m sure none of us need more of that. For that reason, the only way to get through this is by wearing comfy sweaters.

One of the only reasons that I look forward to this time of year – the over sized, warm sweaters! Unfortunately, we can’t wear them all season around but today I am sharing a way to dress up your sweater so that you can pull it off on a causal work day if you need to (and by need, I mean anytime it’s socially acceptable 😛 )

The way I dressed this over sized sweater, was by simply adding heels and a cute bag. This is one of the easiest ways to dress up anything at all!

Fall Wrap 4-Ways!


Hi all,

Unfortunately, Fall is beginning to wind down but before it officially does I wanted to share with you four ways to wear the fall staple that so many of us have in our closets this season – a wrap.

This wrap is a beautiful mustard color and matches the color of the gorgeous fall leaves! I wore this with a black tshirt and leggings for that comfy feel.

1. The first way to wear this is the simplest way, like a shawl over the shoulders.


2. The second way is one of my favorites, with a belt. This is more flattering and looks more put together instead of the casual vibe the other three ways are.


3. This third look is more relaxed, with one side across the shoulder. I love wearing it this way on chilly days!


4. This final way create the affect of a wrap shirt. All you have to do is tuck in the sides of the shawl in your jeans and you’re good to go!


Comment below and let me know what you think of these simple ways to change up the look of your wrap!

Paris is Always a Good Idea…

Hi all,

Hope you’re having a wonderful week! Today, I’ve collaborated with eShakti to bring you a review of one of their cutest dresses! If you visit their website, they have SO many options of dresses, tops, jeans, skirts and the best part is that you can customize your selection. After you select a dress, you can pick the sleeve length, neckline style, and length. I love this because even though others can buy these dresses too, because of the customization feature, yours will be truly unique!

The dress I picked out is the Landscape Print Belted Mixed Media dress which retails for $69.95.


I love this because the print at the bottom is beautiful and hard to find anywhere else! Also, it’s Paris! and we all know that Paris is always a good idea 😉

I chose to increase the length of this dress so it’s a maxi. I accessorized it with a mint green belt for some fun color (and because I didn’t love the belt that it came with), and added a statement necklace.

Here is the dress with the belt it comes with.

My experience with eShakti was very smooth. The dress turned out to be exactly how I wanted it, and it shipped within a week as well! The price of their items seem fair to me  because every piece has to be customized and their designs are truly unique. They also have a good clearance section with lower prices and have sales quite often!

For The Love Chambray!

Hi all,

I hope you are all getting through your week well, it’s Thursday meaning we’re one day away from Friday! 😀

Today, I wanted to talk about one of my all time favorite shirts, chambray! The reason I love wearing chambray is that it is so versatile and easy to style. You can wear it alone, with a pair of jeans or leggings for an easy look, or wear it on top of a dress or skirt to make a look a bit more casual. The second has been my favorite way of wearing chambray lately and its so perfect for the upcoming fall season! Adding the shirt on top of a dress or skirt is the perfect way to transition it into the cooler fall season!

Here are two examples of how I styled a chambray shirt. The first one is by pairing it with a chevron maxi skirt and a white tank underneath. This was more of a day time causal look.

This second look is on top of a black maxi dress. This maxi dress on its own is too formal so by adding the shirt on top, it made it a more casual evening look!

Comment below and share what your favorite way of wearing a chambray shirt is!

-Until next time! 🙂

Throw Back to My Favorite OOTD from My NYC Trip!

Hello all,

In the spirit of throwback Thursday, I am throwing back to my favorite outfit from my NYC trip I took a few weeks ago. If you follow me on instagram (which you should if you don’t yet! :D) then you saw that I shared a few pics from the trip but no outfit ones because I wanted to do a proper post which I have finally got around to doing!

I was there for a few days but this was my favorite outfit. It was comfortable enough to do a lot of walking but cute as well!

I love this skirt! It has tweed look to it but has a subtle sparkle which is perfection! I wore this with a black shirt, black leggings, and a statement necklace. I wore brown booties which were very comfortable for walking and to match that I carried my Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere (35).

I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this bag! I carried it for most of my trip because it fits everything! It has a shoulder strap which is perfect to be hands free and for when you’re tired. I have always loved the look of the iconic Speedy but the fact that it doesn’t have a shoulder strap held me back, but when I discovered this bag, I knew I had to have it! Absolutely perfect for carrying all day but still looking chic!

Attending My First Purse Auction and OOTD!

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I surely did! On Thursday night (we’re just going to pretend that’s part of the weekend 😛 ) I attended my first ever purse auction, A Purse for Change,  hosted by the Women’s Foundation of Genesee Valley.It was such a cool experience because we got to bid on some beautiful pieces (you all know bags are my weakness 😛 ) and it was all for a good cause!

The outfit I wore for this was simple, as were the outfits of other’s because like me, most of these women were coming straight from work. I wore a simple black shirt, with maroon pants and a statement necklace. I wore brown boots and added my Speedy B to tie the whole look together.

Flashback Friday to my Birthday OOTD! 

Hi all!

Happy Friday! My birthday was back in February but I didn’t get a chance to post my outfit so I thought what better day than flashback Friday?!

My birthday was pretty low key this year and I just went out to dinner with some friends. I wore a black button down, with black leather skinny’s. To break up the black on black, I added a boxy camel coat for outerwear. I love this coat! its so sophisticated and stylish, yet it looks laid back and loose (looks huge on me but its only a medium!) because of its boxy cut. I added a gold a statement necklace for some sparkle, and used my Louis Vuitton Neverfull pochette as a clutch!
