Weekend Notes: 01.31.15

Skirt The Rules // Leopard Office Lamps

I feel like the timing of this week was off.  My office closed down early on Monday and didn’t re-open until Wednesday because of Winter Storm Juno.  The blizzard turned out to be a bust, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying a snow day.  As for this weekend, I plan on sleeping in, catching with a few friends and trying out a new surfboard-based fitness class (should be interesting).  So without further ado, here’s what’s on my radar this weekend:

Do trends still exist?  I thought this was a pretty interesting read on how social media has affected the longevity of trends.

The prettiest little bow blouse I ever did see.

So sad to see another brand bite the dust later this year, especially with pieces like this dress or this bag that are so on point.

Helpful tips on how to grow your blog following.

And because we all have to start from somewhere, here is a look into the first posts of some of my favorite bloggers.  And my very first nearly four years ago.

Next on the must have list: destroyed denim.

Gap’s sale is on sale so you can go ahead take an extra 50% off this puffer coat and this floral bomber.

My girl Naty gave her blog a makeover and it’s perfection!

You can never go wrong with florals and stripes.

Black and white perfection.

And in case you missed it, this week I talked about winter floralsspring colors and why I’m sick of wearing puffer coats already.

Take an extra 50% off of sale items at Ann Taylor.  Because you know you need this fringe skirt.

Pale Pink Gallery Wall

It’s a cold one today and I’m not going to lie, my fingers are slightly frozen from taking a walk outside this morning.  So let’s keep this short and sweet, shall we?  I’m taking it easy this week, getting my workout on and maybe partaking in a brunch or two (that’s well-balanced, right?).  Hope you’re staying warm and here’s what’s on my radar this week:

Forbes rounded up a list of 30 people under 30 who are changing the way we shop.  Spoiler alert: they’re all brilliant.

LOFT is having a major sale this weekend.  Take 40% off full-price (including new arrivals!) and 60% off sale items. I’m obsessed with this tomato red top and this polka dot blouse.  New year, new outfits.  Yes please!

By the way, I said yes to the dress this weekend!  I can’t show you what it looks like, but I can share the dress I plan on wearing to our rehearsal dinner.  There’s also plenty of more wedding insp. over on my Pinterest boards.

And speaking of wedding plans, I think we’ve decided on where we’re going for our honeymoon: here and here.

I need need need to recreate Shelby’s blush and black outfit!  It’s so good!

Still obsessing over bucket bags and I want to add another to my collection for spring.  There are plenty of options, depending if you want to save, spend or splurge.

Favorite post of the week?  Five things I learned while traveling in Europe.

This year, I’m committed to investing in quality wardrobe staples.  I’m starting with the ever-timeless black pointed pump, but the real question is: leather or suede?

I found a zen in the form of a DIY terrarium with Bare Minerals earlier this week.  I learned more about their newest product line, Complexion Rescue.  It’s part BB cream/CC cream/tinted moisturizer and 100% heaven for the skin.

You know I usually wear the same pair of sunglasses in black and in tortoise over and over, but I finally found another pair worth adding to the rotation.

I might be hopping on the Go Pro bandwagon and pulling the trigger on this camera.  I want something I can carry around on upcoming adventures or in my bag around the city.  If you have one of your own, I would love to hear your thoughts!

Fall Leopard Dress & Gold Rings

Can you believe it’s October already?  The weather is getting cooler, the days are getting shorter and summer feels like a distant memory.  I’m not too thrilled about that but going into my third fall in NYC, I have to admit that seeing fall foliage still stops me in my tracks and that’s something I can’t complain about!  Here’s what I’m loving this week:

On Air: Earlier this week, I shared my latest video over on YouTube.  Have you seen it yet?  I’m prepping for a visit back to Arizona later this month and talking about what to wear to a fall wedding.  I wanna know which option is your favorite!

Fall is Here: Everyone may have been buzzing about the Indian Summer last weekend but I think it’s safe to say that fall is here to stay.  I’ve got my eye on outerwear and I’m loving this tweed moto, this faux fur jacket and this bright red coat.

NYC Cribs: I’m loving Krista’s peek into her Chelsea apartment!  It’s one of my favorite places to hang on the weekends, so be sure to follow along on her apartment tour series!

Stock Up: Everything’s 40% off over at LOFT, including tons of new arrivals for fall.  I plan on scooping up these booties, this anorak jacket and this textured sweater.

Sale’s on Sale: And while we’re on the topic of sales, go ahead and take an additional 60% off at Ann Taylor.  Already in my shopping cart: this sleeveless coat, this leopard skirt and these black heels.

Girl Crush(es): I love Lauren’s interview with my favorite ladies: Danielle and Alaina of The Everygirl.  I hung out with them when I was in Chicago over the summer and I can’t tell you how passionate, driven and hilarious they are!

Wishlist Refresh: A few months back, I decided I wanted to invest in my dream bag: a Fendi 2Jours tote.  Now that fall is in full swing, I’m craving it in black or deep red.  Which one would you pick?
