Fall Finds

Now that the leaves are falling and the temperature is dropping everyone has been donning their warmer wears. Lucky for me Macy’s was having a pretty good sale!

I fell in love with this bejeweled sweatshirt with quilted sleeves. It reminds me of the latest J. Crew line, but within my price range!

Found this pretty nude dress with white sequins on the 55% off rack and had to have it!

I’ve been loving all of the vests out there this year and thought this cozy one would be a fun addition to my closet.

Can’t wait to try out all of my new pieces! Happy fall!

Brooklyn Pour

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of spending time with my NC pal Shanthony at the annual Brooklyn Pour. It was the perfect way to launch into my stay-cation this week. It was a gorgeous, windy day and perfect for getting out of the house and for layering up.

Shanthony’s mad awesome people skills snagged us that awesome pretzel necklace! Exactly what we needed to go with our beers.

My favorite pour of the day was actually a Swedish hard cider from Rekordelig – they had delightful fruity flavors like strawberry lime and pear. Of course I would find the one non-beer bev at a beer tasting!

Now I have to start mentally preparing for going back to work – yikes!

Until next time,

Bootie-licious

Yep. I said it. Just go with it.

One of my favorite things so far about Fall starting in New York is that every stylish gal in the city is bringing out her most fabulous pairs of booties. I think I might actually have whip-lash from trying to catch a glimpse of every adorable pair that struts past me on the street!

I too have a few pairs that I love to stomp around in. Earlier this week I went with my tan MTNG booties with little studs and metal accents. I decided to squeeze in one more day of tights-free dress wearing before it truly starts to get cold.
