Sweater Coat

Forest Green Sweater Coat

After finally investing in a puffer coat this winter, I’ve got to admit: I can’t believe I lasted two winters on the East Coast without one.  True story: during my first winter here, I was scolded by an elderly lady in a Dunkin’ Donuts for being out sans puffer.  So I’m sure she would fall out of her chair knowing that I wandered around the city in a sweater coat this weekend. #sorrynotsorry  It was a sunny 40°F outside yesterday, which is double what it has been averaging over the past couple weeks.  So even though there was a little bit of snow on the ground still, believe me when I say: I will take what I can get and shed the layers whenever I can.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Weekend Notes: 01.24.15

Have Less, Do Less Be More

Hands down, Saturday is my favorite day of the week.  It’s the one day of the week that I feel like the world is my oyster and the opportunities are endless. Despite the fact that it’s supposed to snow a sort of rain-slush mix today, I’m planning to get out of bed early to hit the gym and catch up on wedding planning, then grab brunch with a few favorites in the afternoon.  To get your day started, I’ve rounded up a little link love this week:

Let’s start off with this essay about 15 ways to avoid blogger burnout.  As someone who’s juggling a full-time job, blogging on nights and weekends and wedding planning in between, I don’t think I’ve read an article that has resonated so deeply before.  Even if you don’t blog, it’s still great insight into leading a happier, more well-balanced life.  Everybody wins!

A pop of red cured the winter blues earlier on the blog this week.  That’s why I need this sweatshirt and this flippy skirt in my life.

First C.Wonder, now Piperlime is shutting down by the end of April.  Times are rough, man.

It’s still only January, but florals are starting to bloom … in purses, pumps and pretty little skirts.

Because of this gadget, the fiancé and I have really stepped up our cooking game at home.  So far, we’ve made butternut squash and creamy tomato soup, but would love to hear your favorite recipes!

I scored this maxi dress and this lace cut-out number at the Rent the Runway sample sale this weekend.  If you’re in town, it’s worth the visit!

Abercrombie & Fitch was my first retail job in college, so it was interesting to read this article about the rise and fall of the brand.  Remember when we all wore ripped jeans, flip flops and popped collars?  No?  Me neither …

Not that I need any more leopard shoes, but damn.

Dying over how adorable Courtney looks in her Paris-meets-Brooklyn look.

This trench cape will be mine.

Our travel guide books for our honeymoon just came in, so you better believe we’re majorly wanderlusting this weekend.  Have you ever been to Greece or Italy?  We’d love your recommendations!

Where to Wear: Date Night

Winter Date Night Outfit

Cami  // Pleated Skirt // Faux Fur Stole // Gold Cuff // Handbag // Leopard Pumps

It’s Friday — glorious, glorious Friday!  I don’t have any big plans this weekend, but one thing that’s on the agenda is date night.  James made it through two years of living in NYC, so we celebrated over his very first meal here: Thai food via Seamless (we do the same for my anniversary, except I had pizza).  But as much as I dining in sweatpants, sometimes a girl just wants to don the prettiest pleated skirt and a pair of leopard pumps (just make sure you wearing something a little more substantial than a fur stole if it’s freezing out!).  I’m counting down the hours until we hit the t own, but I’d love to know what your weekend plans/outfits entail.  TGIF loves!
