Absolutely love that the weather is getting a little warmer here in New York, even though we’re expecting some early “April Showers” over the next few days!

I have this sweater in the black and the cream, and it’s definitely the perfect addition to your wardrobe for spring.  It can be paired with destroyed denim, a flowy patterned skirt, or your favorite cut offs.  Also, can’t get enough of these frayed cropped jeans from Forever 21! They have a little stretch to them, and hugs all your curves! These are so perfect for spring and summer, and are definitely a conversation starter!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, to all my readers! This weekend, my friends and I went upstate to New Paltz, NY, to pack in as many “fall” activities you can in a weekend! The weather was absolutely perfect – a perfect crisp fall weekend and unbeatable fall foliage.

We went apple and pumpkin picking at Dubois Farms in Highland, NY before venturing off to some local vineyards.

My first outfit of the weekend was spent for apple and pumpkin picking, and I have to admit I didn’t really pack appropriately when it came to my footwear.  For some reason, I wasn’t thinking we would be walking around in dirt and mud, so I packed my suede block heeled booties; luckily, we didn’t run into too much mud!

Love the casual feel of my outfit, the long-line hooded sweater was purchased last week from, you’ll never guess where… Forever 21… for under $23!! Great find, and the long sweaters are very “in” this season, my wardrobe feels like I time hopped back to middle school with the chokers, long sweaters, flared jeans, etc.

My blockheel suede booties, were also a crazy deal, for ONLY$28 and they’re super comfy! Lulus.com has unbelievable deals on gorgeous boots!

Feminine & Floral

blog13v8blog13v2blog13v3blog13v6blog13v4blog13v5blog13-v1

I found the most beautiful, feminine top perfect for transitioning from summer to fall.  It showcases my favorite summer trends: off the shoulder and pale blue, while also being long sleeved, and having a feminine floral print, making it an all time favorite!

I scored this gorgeous top at a trendy boutique in Charleston, SC over Labor Day weekend. I love how well it pairs with this felt floppy hat and semi-destroyed flared jeans (which I can’t believe are back in style; my inner 16 year old is loving this)!!  I’ve included similar finds of the top herehere and here.  This top from the boutique, is nowhere to be found online, sorry readers!  The brand is L’atiste by Amy, if you’re able to find it online, please let me know!! Also, here is almost an identical print in an open back, flowy maxi dress and it’s absolutely gorgeous!!
