Sweater Weather

I love to sport a sweater dress in this crisp sweater weather. I especially love this dusty shade of blue paired with my all time favorite white booties. Instant comfort for a city girl. Once I was all done running errands in this get up, I came home, put dinner in the crock pot, slid on my favorite leggings and typed up this blog post. Talk about an easy day-to-night outfit transition.

Keeping this blog post short and sweet. Hope you enjoy the photos and don’t forget to check out the links below to shop my outfit!

Talk soon.

My husband. My Finley. My family back home in New Mexico. My marriage. My friends. My health. My faith. I have so many things to be thankful for, regardless of the struggles I’ve faced. I love this time of the year because we’re reminded on what really matters in this life. It’s about love and its about laughter. Wyatt and I have made a lot of sacrifices since moving to NYC and I’ve learned that it’s not the material things that matter. It’s our family that brings me that unimaginable love and satisfaction. It’s Finley sleeping on my chest. It’s walks with Wyatt in Central Park. Those little things are what make my life worth living. I’m so grateful, unexplainably grateful, for my life.

I’m also thankful for each one my readers, for encouraging me, supporting me and loving me. You guys are the best. Happy Thanksgiving sweet friends. I hope you enjoy every moment of it. Wyatt and I will be attending Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in the morning and then spending the rest of the day munching and napping- just the two of us…and Finley.

With love,

Ready For The Holidays

img_61702 img_6860 collage_fotor img_6750 img_61827 img_6838 img_61727

Thanksgiving is around the corner. Christmas is quickly approaching. It’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear to all those special family gatherings, work parties and other sweet holiday celebrations. This is such a magical time of the year. Not only do you want to show up for it, you want to show up looking and feeling radiant! Your outfit should be dazzling, daring and BRILLIANT! This colorful and festive dress will most definitely be worn to my husbands work holiday party and beyond. I think this flashy little number can be worn outside the holiday season as well with its chic striped print and off the shoulder detail. I mean it. It was love at first sight. I also added this statement lip shaped clutch for a touch of merry-merry red.

Oh holiday season. I am ready for you. New York City is such a wonderful place to be this time of year. I can’t wait.

With Love,

A Magical Day In Central Park

The look on Finley’s face the moment his feet touched down in Central Park was the most magical thing I’ve seen all season. Finley, just shy of 6 months, has never seen or felt Fall before. All of his senses are stimulated and he suddenly has the energy of a kid after eating a cupcake. Finley started running around circles, jumping up and down like a bunny and rolling around in the fallen leaves. Seeing this inner puppy come out like that almost brought me to tears. He has such a sweet soul and seeing him that happy made my entire year. I can’t wait for all the first’s I get to experience with him. He’s my best friend.

Well folks, Fall is officially in the air…the crisp-crisp air. My outfits are quickly overshadowed by my need to stay warm. My jackets and coats are just about all I can create when the weather is constricting. That’s my least favorite part about the cold climate. Not being able to show off my clothes! I just recently snagged this statement denim coat at Zara. It’s so urban chic and I get so many compliments on the subway. Not to mention it’s surprisingly warm with bits and pieces lined with a thick fleece material. It was Finley approved.

A New York Outfit

img_61419 img_61410img_61402 img_61414 img_61412

I’ve had this post sitting here, in my “to do’s” forever now. I open the tab, stare at the blank page for a few minutes trying to gather my thoughts and form at least one sentence but nothing appears. I quickly click the exit button. This has been my life for the past couple of months. Nothing all that great to write about or talk about. I’m just kind of living one day at a time and that’s about it. I think my mind and body need a little bit of a break. If you’ve noticed I’ve taken a small step away from social media lately. It’s healthy to recharge. I’ll explain more in a future post on what’s been going on but I’m going to make a cup of hot cocoa and continue watching my Netflix show. (I’m currently loving Parenthood.) Also, Wyatt and Finley are fast asleep next to me on the couch and one of them farted. Y-A-Y.

Talk soon?
