Bring out the Fur.

During the cold winter days we all want to keep warm and look great at the same time, but sometimes that’s hard to do. While in NYC I saw all the New Yorkers bundled up in fur to keep warm on those chilly days. It was so cute and very trendy at the same time! I was just obsessed and I had to get some for myself, but sadly I’m living off of a lifeguards salary so I was unable to come home with any. Once I got home I looked through all my winter attire and found some great fur pieces! I found black fur earmuffs, a fur scarf, and a fur vest!
Here are some of my favorite fur pieces this winter:

What is your favorite fur piece this season?

New York City

Yesterday I came back from my three day weekend trip to the big apple. This was my first time in the city and it was so much fun! My friend Sierra invited me to go with her for the weekend to stay with her uncles in their apartment in TriBeCa. They gave us an insight to the whole city including the best shopping and amazing restaurants. I took so many pictures over the weekend and I wanted to show you all what I did! Here are some of the highlights:

Obsession Over Oxfords.

One of my favorite shoes to wear is oxfords, because they are simple but extremely cute! Colored soles on oxfords are a great way to just show a little flair to your outfit without going too crazy. And if your feeling daring try a pattered or bright colored pair!
Some of my favorite oxfords this season:

These shoes are so cute because of how bright and colorful they are! The color makes a statement, yet it’s still very feminine. When styling these shoes with your outfit make sure the colors don’t clash. Try even pairing these with a black circle skirt for a playful look.

These shoes are just adorable with the cutouts on the side! The color would look perfect with a pair of jeans or even a sundress in the summer!

A metallic oxford, like this one, is a great way to show your style! Pair these shoes with black jeans for a super cute look!

Some of my favorite oxfords are just simple men’s wear inspired all leather shoes. I would personally wear these shoes with everything since they are so versatile! The bow adds a cute feminine touch!

What is your favorite pair of oxfords?

What time is it?

watches
I love wearing watches for two main reasons: you will always know the time, and they are super cute! Watches are a timeless accessory, they will never go out of style. Different watch trends will come and go, but wearing one on a day to day basis is always in style!
When I got dressed this morning I was going for a comfortable easy outfit. I was planning on meeting my mom for lunch so I wanted to look cute, like always, but be able to get dressed quickly so I could leave. I wore a blue and white striped button down shirt, jeans, and brown riding boots. For accessories I quickly grabbed a fabulous multi-strand necklace, a large blue striped bag, and my favorite watch.

Spring Jackets

Spring is finally here! With warmer weather just around the corner, we can switch our winter coats for jean jackets. The most important things to remember when shopping for your new spring jacket is comfort, use, and look. Whether you prefer a trench coat or a army jacket this spring, here is a list of all the trendy jackets for any occasion!

Shopping tip:
Everything you buy should be comfortable, because if it’s not you will not want to wear it! Next the use of it- make sure the next thing you buy you will wear. I’ve bought so many shirts that I end up never wearing, so if you want to buy a new jacket make sure you will use it and get your moneys worth out of it. Last but not least, the look- you must decide whether you want a universal jacket that you can wear everyday or a special occasion jacket that is very trendy. Before going to the store decide what you need and how much you are willing to spend on it, this will help you to not spend money on something you don’t even need.

Jean Jackets-
Jean jackets are very universal. You can pair it with your outfit instead of a sweater or even put it on over a dress to make it a casual look. I love how there are so many different jean jackets looks. Some are simple and vary from light or dark wash, some are studded, some have leather accents, and some even have patterns. It’s really easy for you to find the perfect jean jacket this year and with all the different styles you can pair it with any outfit!

Trench Coats-
This is a perfect coat for spring. If it’s raining, a trench is perfect. If your going to dinner, a trench is a great choice because you can dress it up. Or maybe your just going shopping with your girlfriends, a trench coat will look amazing. This spring, you should be bold and go with a bright color, or do something fun like spikes!

Utility Jacket/ Army Jacket-
These jackets are a fun way to be edgy. Normally there in simple colors, but they can be super fun to work with. Pair them with black jeans and combat boots or wear it over a simple white shirt and jeans.

Emerald: The color of Spring 2013

When someone talks about the color emerald, I immediately think of the Wizard of Oz and the Emerald City. Well now, that city is coming to life! Emerald is the new color of the season and it’s in full swing.

Beauty:
I walked into Sephora over the weekend and was overwhelmed with the amount of emerald makeup on display. From eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, even emerald colored hairspray, they have anything you could possibly want.

Eye shadow-
emerald eyeshadow
Nars has a great nude and emerald eye shadow pallet. It is simple but would look amazing if done right. It might be hard for you to ever think of using emerald eye shadow so I found a step by step guide on Sephora’s Pinterest. Give it a try and let me know what you think! 🙂

All of these beauty products are available at Sephora.

Here are a collection of photos from Pinterest to give you some inspiration for the next time you shop for an emerald look!
