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?
Outfit Details: Cardigan and Necklace- Forever 21 // Dress c/o TJ Maxx (when I won a trip to go shopping with Keiko Lynn) // Shoes- Sam Edelman Petty (in Black Gladiator Leather) // Lips- Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Standout (obsessed with this color- might have to do a dedicated post about it!) // photos- my sister
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!
I know it’s been a month since NYFW but I still have pictures to share! I’d been saving this red dress for the right occasion and I decided that the rewardStyle NYFW party would be the perfect place to wear it.
While I was there, I was reunited with blogger friends Lydia and Meg, who I hadn’t seen since I moved from Connecticut to New York. It was so great to catch up with them at the party! And get this- I also ran into a friend who I hadn’t seen since high school. At first I thought there was no way it could be her, since as far as I knew she was not a fashion blogger, but it turns out she has her own photography business and came to New York as the photographer for B. Jones Style. It was definitely one of those moments where you think, “What a small world!”
