{ nyfw part 1/2 }

Straight from Vegas, I hit nyc for nyfw- which I know you probably know (hi. instagram. )
Wanted to share some of my favorite memories and share the inside scoop on what went down.

Arrived at my home away from home, The Empire Hotel...with only the bare necessities ;) 
They are SO GOOD TO ME. Highly recommended.

Gawked at the bandage dresses , and celebs, at Herve Leger. Max- always a fave.

Made a pit stop at Chelsea Market between showroom stops just for old times sake. 
And also for chinese food. At this very moment I wish there were emojis on this blog.

Stopped by the McKittrick Hotel with the Hilton sisters (sort of) for an hauntingly creative Alice and Olivia presentation. 

Got my hair done by Sean at the Serge Normant team. (priorities)

More to come next week!

{ copper & rose gold }

I will be the first to say that I love the copper and rose gold trend that's popular right now. Sure it's a no brainer when it comes to jewelry, but have you ever thought to incorporate it into your home design? I know, so chic. Here's some other favorites:

Inspired Style { chambray }

I was on QVC last week talking trends and wanted to make sure you saw the piece. Do you agree with us, is chambray the new classic white shirt? We vote 100 times yes.

{ alice & olivia }

The weather has officially lost its mind. I ran some errands before the snow last week
in Alice and Olivia (sweater from h&m) and wanted to share my latest obsession -- Alice and Olivia  cropped denim pants. They had these in cargo but sold out before I could grab them (don't worry, I'm still stalking) so I tried these instead and I have to admit that I'm surprised at how much I like them. The length is great and would probably be even better on someone taller than 5'2 (womp) and the color is what is makes them unique. These are thick denim, but are rich navy in color and I can't wait to wear them during summer travel with brown leather flip flops + tee + messy braid. Maybe a second post then??

WHICH brings me to the shoes.  Countless blogger friends and I have been on the hunt for the perfect black, closed toe pointed heel ( you know, b/c what else to you wear with completely-falling-apart-boyfriend-jeans ) but it seemed so many styles were too heavy on the ankle for my taste. These "delia's" by A&O are my new go-to's and are worth every penny. I've never seen better lines on a black shoe, have you??

Saturday in office...

It's Saturday. And I'm in office. And I have a very important list to tackle.
Thanks Microsoft OneNote for keeping me "on track" today. ;)

Totally hate when I'm out ad have a great thought for a post or need to add something to my to-do list. OneNote solves that by being on my phone and syncs to my computer. And it's so satisfying to check something off the list.  Nap. Check.

{ mirrored }

Running around Vegas again called for more comfy shoes! I'm officially obsessed with my mirrored raybans these days. Another apparent obsession: Shirts with faux leather details. I wore them with my 3x1 denim (which the team made custom for me. crazy.) and they fit perfectly into my new wedge nikes. I was avoiding the wedge trend for some time but caved for the all black.

you caving too? Here are the links below. Happy shopping.

{ leather weather }

Last week I was invited to Vegas to be a host at las vegas market. The weather was absolutely amazing-- a much needed break from the DE/NYC cold. I ended up with some free time on my hands to explore sin city so I grabbed a few layers, and my new kicks from Heidi Klum & New Balance (yes, true) and hit the town.

I started with a (faux) leather skirt and jacket (both from Zara but similar options below), popped those over a thin knit sweater and grabbed an over-sized red linen scarf. Paired with my undone hair, stacked rings and coffee, I felt comfortable enough for sightseeing, and extra stylish for day drinking.
