If you know me, you probably know how much I love rompers.  They’re playful, easy to wear, and can be dressed up or down for almost any occasion.  I love them so much that even a little cold weather isn’t going to stop me from rompin’ around.  To make it work for fall, pick a romper in a deeper hue and pair it with warmer items like cardigans and flats.

It should come as no surprise that I’m a J.Crew aficionado.  Although brutal on the wallet, this American brand is definitely easy on the eyes.  Each piece can serve as a sophisticated foundation to any outfit on its own, but styled together, they form unexpected combinations of preppy flare, cozy layers, and colorblocking.  I’m totally ready to take on the cold weather with inspiration like this!

When my husband and I first moved to New York City, we never imagined we would be able to own a home. Nearly six years later, we’ve embarked on our most exciting chapter yet!

Every since I upgraded to the iPhone 4S, I’ve been using it non-stop to check Facebook, share photos on Instagram, and play Words/Hanging With Friends. Real productive, I know.  Well besides asking Siri about the meaning of life, my favorite part of owning a 4S is browsing at all the fun cases to protect it.  Whether you want to match with your bff or rock a unique print, there’s definitely a case for that.
