Champagne for Breakfast

If you know me or you’ve read my blog, you know that I am a HUGE fan of champagne. It is my go-to drink of choice, no matter the occasion. Back in the winter, my mom got me this Champagne for Breakfast sweatshirt for Valentine’s Day. It is light weight, but warm enough for chilly days, and it has the cutest saying. I’ve worn it to brunch and even to a basketball game tailgate (of course mimosas were involved at both). I ran some errands yesterday morning and decided to throw on the sweatshirt. I paired it with my utility jacket, leggings, and my cargo boots. I really need to build up my collection of champagne shirts, and actually drink some champagne. Unfortunately it’s been a while.

IT’S FRIDAY!!! Hallelujah. It has been such a long week. In order to avoid traffic in the morning, I’ve been getting up a little earlier. Although I’m a little more tired, I’m definitely a lot less stressed. On Wednesday during my lunch break, I took a walk over to the Old Navy in SOHO because I knew that had a sale going on. I picked up this cheetah scarf and a new pair of nice leggings, so I definitely had to wear them yesterday. Minus the shoes, I’m wearing head-to-toe Old Navy (shocker, I know).

Please Purchase

How is it Thursday already? I feel like the week flies by sometimes. Not only is tomorrow Friday, but today marks one week until my sister comes home for a break! I cannot WAIT to see her.

So back to today’s post. Sometimes I feel like I just have a running list in my phone of things I want to buy. I’ve put together a few things that I currently cannot wait to purchase. Most of the time I have to wait until I can actually shop in person, because I am always too nervous to shop online. Here is a list of my “Note to Self: Please Purchase” list. Enjoy!

AE tee || 23 is my lucky number, and besides sporting a Michael Jordan jersey (which I actually won when I was little) it would be fun to wear my lucky number another way.

Blog weekly planner notepad || All of my favorite bloggers have been posting pictures with their new Heart and Arrow Design blogger notebooks! I may wait to ask for this little beauty for Christmas, but it is still on the list right now. (And yes, I have started my Christmas list).

Jcrew tech gloves || I really want to pick up a cute/ trendy/ practical pair of gloves for winters in Manhattan, and I think these fit the bill.

Kate Spade phone case || Right now I am constantly switching between my Mophie charging case, a plain blue case, and my pineapple case. I want a case that can carry me from fall into winter. This case is so cute yet so simple, and can easily make that transition.

What do you think? Anything you’re loving right now that I missed? Let me know in the comments below!

Rain Rain Go Away

I absolutely hate rainy days. I feel like they make the day a lot more difficult. In order to survive rainy days in college and commuting to the city I have some go-to rainy day gear. During my sophomore year of college I ordered this North Face rain jacket before a trip and it was one of my best investments! Its light weight, making it perfect for summer rain days and easy to layer when it gets colder. For my 19th birthday I got these Burberry rain boots from my parents. They’re another great investment! My birthday is towards the end of July, so I always shop for gifts during the Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. Its the perfect time to pick up good deals! Thankfully for these two purchases, I’m always set for a rainy day!

Special thanks to my mom, who stood out in the rain to take pictures for me!

Chop Chop

So remember on Friday when I mentioned I was having a change this weekend? Well, I cut my hair!! I’ve been wanting to cut it for a while, but had to wait a long time for my appointment. I am SO HAPPY with the way it came out! I had to share some pictures with you all :)

What I’m wearing::
Old Navy shirt (old, similar)|| Old Navy Jeans || Marshall’s flats (old) || Origami Owl necklace || Ray Ban sunglasses

 

I had a very relaxing weekend, mostly spent by catching up on TV shows. It’s much needed after a busy week! I also started some new shows: Selfie, Manhattan in Love, & A to Z. Two of them take place in Manhattan, which are my favorite! They’re definitely great when I want to watch something while unwinding and browsing on my laptop.

Casual Yet Classy || Fashion Fridays

It’s Friday! Which means I’m sharing with you one of my favorite outfits from this week. When I checked the weather on Sunday, I noticed it was going to be in the 70s, so I figured I would wear a skirt while I didn’t have to worry about wearing tights. The decision was perfect because it was definitely warmer, and I was very comfortable.

What I’m wearing::
Ann Taylor Loft shirt || Marshall’s skirt (old) || Payless flats

Note about these flats: when I find a pair of shoes or clothing that is comfortable, I buy them in every color. This goes for these flats and a pair of Payless heels. They’re reasonably priced and don’t kill my feet by the end of the day. I’m a big fan!

I’m so ready for the weekend, as it has been a loooong and stressful week. I have a change coming tomorrow, and can’t wait to post about it on Sunday!

Any fun plans this weekend?
