I realized recently that I’ve been working in NYC for 8 months now. :O That is so insanely crazy to me and even though my days have gotten longer and longer, I’m still so happy to be in this city. I work in Union Square and this area is so perfect! Union Square has awesome places to eat or shop, I’ve spotted Jimmy Fallon here, and I love that it’s in so many movies! Some of my favorite spots include The Bean, Republic, Liquiteria, Union Square Greenmarket, and Irving Farm Coffee Roasters.

NYC’s weather has been fluctuating a ton with days in the 50’s one week and then a blizzard the next (P.S. I survived my first blizzard! It was super short and I ended up going to work during it. Lol) I’m always wearing layers so that I don’t get uncomfortable at work or walking around the city and I typically have two things with me: 1) my work tote which is big enough for my laptop! and 2) my Frends headphones!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Some of my favorite and most comfy outfits to wear are ones that involve layering a cropped blouse or sweater over a dress (see previous post here and here). I’ve done it again but this time with an outfit that’d work for either day or night and I love it! I got this top at Zara last month for New York fashion week and have just found myself wearing it constantly. I’ve been really into chokers as well so this blouse just screamed my name. The boots are also from Zara and are so comfortable- I don’t even feel the heel! I felt so chic with this outfit while walking through midtown!

For this post, I’m collaborating with local Atlanta photographer Angeline Danyelle! I really enjoyed working with her, loved that she was open to any ideas of how I wanted to shoot, and think that she’s really talented! Loved the way these pics turned out! Be sure to check out her photography site here. We shot at the High Museum in Atlanta!IMG_0268 Continue reading “Day or Night Winter Maxi”

Gift for Men: Jord’s New Conway Watch

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHi everyone! I’m excited to be doing another collaboration with Jord watches! Before I get into this post, I wanted to let you know that I’m doing a $100 online gift code contest for a Jord watch (and you’ll get a $25 off code just for entering!)- get the rules at the end of this post!

Jord just released a new series of watches called the Conway! They have metal accents and different wood colors to chose from. In my opinion these make the perfect gift for the men in your life because these watches are unique, suitable for work or casual outings, and are nice quality! I got the Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood Conway watch for my brother as a graduation gift and I’m excited to give it to him! It was hard to choose a watch because there are so many good options and colors!

Wow where to begin this post. 1) Sorry for being so MIA this whole last month and a half. It feels like I haven’t had a second to myself to just get online and blog. Now that I’m working in NYC I have super long hours and am just also trying to experience the city with new friends and coworkers. 2) I mentioned new exciting blog projects that I’m really excited about but that are taking more time than I expected. They are coming soon I promise!IMG_0964.jpg

These last few months have been a dream. I’m living the life I’ve always wanted- being in NYC and then traveling on the weekend to whatever city I pretty much want. It’s amazing to take a step back and just feel grateful for it all- I’m truly so lucky. I’ve realized more and more that school is a time to work your butt off so that you can enjoy life later (aka if you’re in school, work hard now so you can play later). New York City is so incredibly beautiful and the perfect place for blog pics. I took these with my friend Natasha (see her guest post here) back in November but am just now getting around to posting them. Since it’s been so cold lately these pics are still applicable. Lol I encountered my first snow storm last week and it was somewhat intimidating with the wind and slush but nonetheless was a fun experience of trying to walk and not die. Cant wait to go back to NYC this week!

Laced Leggings in the Fall

Happy fall everybody! The other day I was invited to a cocktail making class in midtown Atlanta at Grain Bar so my friend Natasha & I dressed up and went! In this post you’ll see me style this outfit with two jackets- the black one for chilly weather and the green one for cold weather. This outfit was mainly neutral so it went perfectly with both jackets! I love whenever I have the chance to pull out my lace leggings so for this outfit I grabbed my burgundy dress and layered a gray sweater over it- layering like this is one of my secrets for when I don’t want to wear pants but don’t have that many skirts. Lol Also, whenever I wear glasses, I’ve been rocking these ones from Karoo– I’m a brand ambassador for them and you can find their eyewear at Ponce City Market! If you want to see some of the treats we enjoyed at the cocktail class, see them at the end of this post!
