I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m totally sick in these pictures. I had to peel myself out of bed to get to the doctor, so I decided to put on something nice (I had been in PJs all weekend) I know, I’m super weird. Even the people at the doctor’s office were looking at me weird. I’m not sure if I was just delirious but I really thought these shoes looked great with this outfit. I like the mix of tough and sweet. What do you think? Is it a do or don’t?

I decided to give the balcony another try. There has been some construction work going on, so I kept looking up hoping nothing would fall on me. Nothing did. Pheeewwww!
I love these jeans I picked up from Asos. I love their site because they have petite sizing perfect for my short stems. I don’t have to cuff these under so the skinny part of the jeans fall perfectly on my skinny ankles. I was initially going to throw on tan pumps, but I saw these and thought what the heck, go for it! I decided to keep the rest of my accessories light.
How do you feel about mint and leopard? Something you will try?

Working around Penn Station in NYC I see the craziest things. People talking to people that aren’t’ really there, a mom changing a kid’s diaper as he stand at the bus stop (yes, that really happened!). It’s a very diverse place, to say the least. I’ve become immune to it, so not much surprises me anymore. Plus, there’s always so much going on that the memory of what I’ve seen or heard lasts for about 30 seconds and I’m quickly distracted by something else. Today was not much different, except that I was on the PATH with nowhere to go until I arrived to my stop. I was standing next to a man listening to his ipod, he was listening to Jay Z’s “Paris”. I knew that because it was so loud I could clearly hear the lyrics…it’s actually a favorite of mine (I know, I’m a hip-hop junkie). Anyway, he was holding onto the top railing moving, shaking and mouthing the lyrics as if he was at the club. I immediately thought “this guy is crazy” and proceeded to step a few steps away (as much as I could in a crowded subway cart). As I’m staring at him, he looks at me, smiles and keeps on dancing. I laughed and realized, this guy is not crazy, he’s just happy. It is 7am in the morning and everyone is miserable, including me. He’s dancing and enjoying life at 7am and he wants the world to know. I wanted to join in his dance party, but that was a bit too much for me. All I know is that he made me smile for the rest of the morning. Thank you happy PATH guy!
Now onto today’s outfit. As I near my mid-30’s (crap!), I’ve learned a lot about how to dress for my body, size and about my style. I try to buy things that I can wear both to the office and on the weekends. When I saw this top it had “work and play” written all over it. Here’s how I wore it to the office and out to brunch to celebrate my dear friend’s birthday. Happy Birthday Mari!

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Anthropologie Fashion show in the Soho store. The show was focused around the Leifnotes collection, which was full of color and fun patterns. What a great collection. Here are some of my favorite looks.
I need this top.
This dress has “beach vacation” written all ove it.

Cat’s hubby was out of town this weekend, that means I got a ton of sees time!!! On Friday night we had a sleep over and worked on a super fun DIY project, neon yellow cap toe heels…of course inspired by A Pair and a Spare. I’m thinking about wearing these for Marion’s “Trend of the Month Challenge”. Make sure you stop by her blog and join the challenge. She has GREAT style, is hysterical and super sweet!
On Saturday, Cat and I woke up to a FB message from our cousin telling us that she’s having a last minute party for her little princess turning 3. Although we were planning to go for a run, we immediately thought the same thing and raced to the Gap to buy her a DVF for Gap outfit!!! Yay, mission accomplished! Hmmm…in case you were wondering, no we didn’t go for a run, we walked really fast in the mall to get a workout…ha ha.
We eneded the weekend with a mom and daughter shopping trip to the mall, hence the fitting rooms pictures. We’re still a bit shy about taking pictures outside…baby steps, baby steps.
Have a great week!

My post today has nothing to do with President’s Day but I thought I ‘d just wish you all a happy one. Hopefully you are off from work, as I am. I’m enjoying the weekend with Frank out in our favorite Long Island spot, Jamesport.

I love this outfit because it’s a great office-to-cocktail look. At the end of the day, I can take off the blazer, add some fun jewelry, maybe change my shoes…or maybe not (I love these shoes!) and head out to a fun happy hour!

This look was inspired by the lovely Linzy from Sparkling Footsteps. I recently purchased this dress from Asos for only $26 (now on sale for $17!) so I decided to take her advice and add some bright and sparlking accesories. The best part was that the dress, clutch and necklace were under $100!
Skirt: The Limited
I absolute love stripes, mainly blue and white stripes. Contrary to popular believe, stripes can be quite flattering if you know how to wear them. I am fuller on top so I wore horizontal stripes on the bottom to create balance. What do you think?
