Now that we are already almost a month into 2015, I wanted to take a minute and look back to last year around this time and see what I was wearing, what I was thinking and where I was at the time. Last January I was finishing up my time in Seattle and about to head back to New York to brave the snow and chilly temps. Maybe someday I will do a roundup of all the various outfits I’ve worn on the blog over the past six years but for now, here are four different outfits I wore plus some links to a handful of other fun posts I wrote during that month: 30 Things About Me, three mini remix videos, favorite detail shots, and six love versus cringe outfits. xo
My apologies for not posting the past couple days! I always get so jet lagged coming back from Seattle, especially in the mornings since my body still feels three hours behind, so the past few days since I got back on Saturday night, have felt like a blur. It also takes me a bit of time to reenter back into New York after being away during the holidays, so that’s a part of it too. I feel like all I have done lately is sleep, clean, unpack and sleep some more. But, I think I am finally back on track, so I appreciate you bearing with me! :)
Now onto the outfit. These are probably the baggiest jeans I own but I absolutely adore them. I love the wash, the rips, the slouch and how comfortable they are. Who knows if they are even that flattering on me, but Casey claims to think they are spunky and cute, so that’s good enough for me!

Look at that single piece of drool!
Barney LOVES his pretty suede collar from Yark. His neck is so big that most collars don’t fit him, but this one is perfect!

With only a week left in Seattle, I have been trying to fit in as many snuggles and walks with Barney as possible. Yesterday, my Dad and I took him to Woodland Park to run round a bit and burn off some energy. It’s amazing to watch him fly by you at record speed, all the while hoping he won’t barrel into you at the same time. But luckily his depth perception and agility never fails and he whizzes past like a lightening bolt just missing you by mere inches! I’m going to miss him so much after I leave. :/
But on a lighter note, I still have four full days with him, my family and friends, and I intend on taking full advantage of my time left!
Barney’s collar and leash were a sweet gift from Yark! xo
Good morning, everyone! Can you believe it’s the first Monday of the new year? I’m excited for what’s to come in 2015 but so very thankful for what 2014 brought me, which included my sweet boyfriend, Casey. He’s quite a gem and I feel so lucky to have him in my life. I posted about him being a saint here, because when we took these photos, it was FREEZING outside. Poor guy didn’t have gloves on and let me tell you, the wind coming off the water was brutal. I can handle cold weather, but when you involve crazy wind, no thank you. He patiently shot and reshot until I got what I wanted photo-wise, and kept a smile on his face for most of it. My Dad is the same way – patient and supportive. Thank goodness for these two amazing men in my life.
Can you tell by the look on my face that I’m freezing? Haha, I was trying so hard to keep it together! Oh, what I will do for a good photograph!
As you can see, I am desperately trying to hold my hair down and keep it from blowing straight up or across my face. I’m sure I looked insane to any bystanders, especially when I took off my jacket, but I really wanted to show you guys my sweater! :)

I am very lucky and blessed in so many ways and feel thankful for all that I have. Thank you to you all, my friends and loved ones, and to 2014. You were a good year.
Here’s to a fantastic Monday! xo

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am so excited because I am flying to Seattle today for the holidays. I can’t wait to see my friends, family and of course, Barney! I packed this skirt with me and plan on wearing it on New Year’s Eve with Casey. Not sure what we are doing yet, but regardless, I always like to dress up a bit and this number is the perfect piece to work into my outfit. The tiny scallops, box pleats and silvery fabric add a festive touch and gives off a sweet and feminine vibe, which I really like. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to show you easy ways to style it up, simply by changing out the top and necklace, creating two different fun and festive looks!
Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you’re surviving this wet and dreary weather. Thankfully, this weekend is supposed to be a bit nicer, so if you’re downtown in the city during the afternoon, come hang out with me at the Bloomingdales in Soho! I will be there from 1-4 along with Nixon Watches and InStyle magazine, where we will be sharing the new watch styles available (a perfect holiday gift!) as well as offering helpful accessory styling and stacking tips! (See official invite below.)
Hope to see you all there!
