Be Thankful

Can someone please explain to me how it’s already Thanksgiving? I swear it was July yesterday.  I can’t believe another holiday season has begun.  Although, I am not the biggest fan of Thanksgiving food, I love what the holiday symbolizes, the start of the countdown to Christmas and most importantly giving thanks for all the wonderful people and things in your life.  This year, like in every year past I will be heading back home from the city to Connecticut and celebrate at my aunt’s house surrounded by my family and lots of wine to get through all the family… View Post

So Fall

I have a love / hate relationship with fall.  I love the season for its fashion but hate the season knowing that winter is right around the corner.  I’m trying not to think about the long, cold, and snowy days ahead but embracing the jeans, chunky sweaters, and boots before I have to cover up my outfits with a bulky winter coat.  So keep on reading to see today’s look, which is what I like to call my so fall look because it features all of the fall fashion essentials and the beautiful colors of fall. This sweater was a… View Post

Living On The Edge

One of the hardest questions I’m always asked is, “how do you define your style?” I always find this question challenging to answer because I can never accurately define my fashion style because it changes every day and every night, depending on my mood, the weather, my style inspirations, and so on.  Every fashion lover can agree the best thing about fashion is that you don’t have to stick to one style, but every day is a different day to use clothing to express yourself.  Some days you will find me dressing like a hippie, other days more preppy, even some days I’m wearing pink and more feminine pieces, or the complete opposite and wearing leather and all… View Post

Sparkle On

Although the holidays have quickly come and gone, Christmas decorations are slowly coming down, Santa has already slid down our chimneys (well only if you were good this year), but it doesn’t mean its time to put away the glitz and glam just yet.  In my fashion rule book, sparkles can be worn any day, any time, and any season.  I love finding subtle ways to incorporate some shine and sparkle into any outfit and today’s outfit perfectly achieves that look.  So keep on scrolling to see how I’m leaving a little sparkle behind everywhere I go. I feel like… View Post

Holding Onto Fall

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, the frigid temperatures seem to be here to stay, and it got me thinking that snowy weather is just around the corner.  I’ve never been a fan of the snow. Yeah, the first snow fall always looks beautiful and peaceful but after a few snow storms I’m over it.  Plus, have you ever walked through the streets of Manhattan while it’s snowing or after a big snow storm?  It’s a slushy mess that just makes my commute unbearable.  I’d rather an autumn wonderland than a winter wonderland, so before the snow arrives, I’m… View Post

It’s Turkey Time

T-minus one day until Turkey Day!  Are you mentally preparing for what you will be stuffing your face with on Thanksgiving? Or how about strategically planning for how you are gonna fit all the Thanksgiving specialties on one plate?  For me, I’m planning what I’m gonna wear for the Thanksgiving festivities.  For Thanksgiving my family gathers at my aunt’s house so I don’t have to worry about dressing too fancy but still want to look stylish yet still be comfy because it’s a long day of eating and drinking a couple glasses of wine (I’m gonna need it to get… View Post

Are You Faux Real?

Is it just me or are others really freaked out over how fast 2017 is speeding by.  I can’t believe next week is already Thanksgiving.  Maybe freaked out is the wrong phrase but it just boggles my mind we are already fully in holiday mode.  Just today I was listening to the radio on my way to the train station and I heard a Christmas ad and thought to myself isn’t it a little early for Christmas ads and that’s when it hit me…Christmas is next month.  Are you for real?  Or in this case are you FAUX real?  You… View Post

12 Ways To Mix Up Your Personal Style

If you ever get a little bored of wearing the same old trusty outfits or rocking the same old style you’ve always rocked, then mixing up your style could be the way forward.  Sometimes, when we wear things we wouldn’t usually go for, it can really open up our minds and change our perspective on what we consider to be “our style.” You can be whoever you want from day to day.  Be a hippie today and a sharp business woman tomorrow.  Wear the clothes that make you feel the way you want to feel.  You’re under no obligation to… View Post

Buffalo (Plaid) Soldier 

Does anyone know the difference between plaid, checkered, or the buffalo plaid pattern?  To me these three terms are interchangeable.  Although in the fashion world, plaid is described as different sized vertical and horizontal stripes of two or more colors, checkered is described as equal sized squares of two alternating colors, and buffalo plaid is described as a larger, square checkered pattern.  I had to brush off on my old skills of working retail at Madewell and learning all about their trendy flannels and all the different patterns so I settled on buffalo plaid to describe the shirt I’m wearing… View Post

From Summer To Pumpkin Season

So you celebrated the summer season with a bright and light decor that gave your home a fresh and exciting style?  Great!  But the problem with the summer style is that, once the Halloween pumpkins are out, it doesn’t look as stylish and exciting as it did in July.  It’s time to work on your transitional decor and to prepare the home for winter… but first, let’s think of the Halloween decor.  No, it doesn’t mean sticking a plastic skeleton on the shelf and hoping for the best.  It’s about getting the colors and feelings of fall into your home… View Post

Indian Summer

In·di·an sum·mer ˈindēən ˈˌsəmər/ noun – a period of unusually dry, warm weather occurring in late autumn. A mild, warm autumn or an Indian summer is certainly what New England has been experiencing throughout September and the early part of October.  I always felt that once Labor Day came the weather did a 180 and started to actually feel like fall. But lately temperatures have been abnormally high in the 70s and 80s.  The days have felt like a continuation of the dog days of summer, especially in New York City. A lot of the time I am overheating by… View Post

Her Campus College Fashion Week 2017 Recap

Hands down, one of my favorite things about being a blogger and a Youtuber, is the events.  Events, like tradeshows, panels, fashion shows, and forums, is where I get the chance to be surrounded by people like me.  Meeting other talented bloggers and influencers is what makes blogging worthwhile.  I can’t describe the feeling I get when I finally put a face to a name, meet some of the people behind my favorite brands, discover new brands, and the best part meeting new blogger friends.  This is exactly what the Her Campus Fashion Week is all about.  I’m extremely grateful… View Post
