casual outfit ideas

Thank you guys for all your great feedback on my fall capsule wardrobe post! I was really excited to share it and I’m happy to be taking you along with me while I try out this concept. I have a couple of outfit posts this week that were taken before I kicked off my fall capsule, then starting next week it will be all fall capsule outfits for a while.

On this particular day, I’d taken the day off since my sister was visiting and we’d planned to do a bunch of things. However, it was a gray and blustery day and the activities that we wanted to do were all outdoorsy, so we decided to postpone our plans. Instead we went down to the Financial District to meet my roommate for lunch. There are a bunch of food trucks parked near his work, so we all grabbed some food and ate it in a nice outdoor space called the Elevated Acre.

We also went down to South Street Seaport, which I’d never really been to before. There were a lot of cute shops, including a lovely letterpress stationery store called Bowne & Co Stationers. I love having my sister visiting because I have an excuse to play tourist and see a different side of New York.

Tell me: Are you ever a tourist in your own city?

Leather and Leopard

Well, these are the last of the photos that I took when I was in California in December. Sometimes I think, “Why did I ever leave California, where it’s a sunny 50 degrees in the middle of winter?”

As much as I wanted to hibernate this weekend, I did leave the house on Saturday to attend Lulu’s NYFW Style Studio. As always, it was a fun event and I picked up a couple of pretty pieces that will be making their way to the blog at some point. Thanks to Lulu’s for a fun evening!

On Sunday I was glued to the TV, soaking up all of the Olympics coverage. And when I say glued to the TV, I mean I watched the coverage from 2-6pm and then from 7-11pm. Yep, that’s serious couch potato status right there.

Aaaand it’s Monday again. How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good- on Saturday I participated in a photoshoot for a new online magazine called Stylish Sophisticate. After we wrapped up the shoot, I headed to a friend’s house to watch the Saints vs. Seahawks game. I don’t have a particular preference for either team, but my roomie is from New Orleans so I was rooting for the Saints a little bit.

Sunday was the ultimate lazy Sunday for me. I was extra tired for some reason so I spent a good chunk of the day in bed. I’ve been meaning to give audiobooks another try (I’ve never really been a fan but I wanted to try them again), so I started a new book- The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud. In the evening, I turned on the TV to catch the Golden Globes. Can Amy and Tina please host all award shows for the rest of time?

Tell me: Who else watched the Golden Globes on Sunday? What were your favorite looks?

Oh hey, remember when I used to do outfit posts? Alex and I hadn’t met up in a while, so this weekend we decided to get together and have a little tea party with Hope. Before our gathering, we went down to the water to snap a few quick pictures. I’d never been to this area of the East River and I imagine it being a nice place to take a stroll when the weather is warmer.

So pretty much everything I’m wearing in this outfit is from Joe Fresh. I really only shopped at one place during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales and it was Joe Fresh since they were having a 40% off sale on everything. I scored this comfy sweater dress, a couple pairs of tights, two sweaters and a beanie, all together costing me around $50. Thank you Joe Fresh for allowing me to make some much-needed updates to my winter wardrobe!
