I love jumpsuits, rompers, and dresses all for the same reason...they are so easy. Instant outfit, instant style. Even if you aren't the most stylish person, the no fuss of throwing on a one piece look makes anyone and everyone an instant fashionista. 

What are you feelings on jumpsuits? Love them or hate them???

New Orleans: Part Two

dress (similar): H&M/tights: H&M/ booties: Chelsea Crew Black Label/purse: H&M

Truth be told, I'm kind of obsessed with this dress. Yes, I know I look more like Wednesday Addams than a Southern Belle...but I'm from NYC, so deal with it.  :-)

Here is a final roundup of some my favorite shots while on our New Orleans trip. Enjoy!

My husband was horsing around...and so were the horses...

One thing that really won over my heart in New Orleans was the bright and bold colors. Blue shutters, purple doors, hot pink front stoops...and even this gate door that was covered in bottle caps! So charming and quirky...I love it.

And I'm not one for nature (at all), but these trees were amazingly beautiful!

All in all we had a nice trip...saw a lot. If you followed along on my Instagram you got to see even more shots from our adventure. It was so good to get out of NYC for a little...but we're glad to be back. 

Now...where to next???

New Orleans Babydoll

So this past weekend Chris and I went on a little mini-getaway to New Orleans. Neither of us had ever been there, so this was a fun little adventure for the both of us. 

We spent the extra long weekend walking around the town, snapping photos of the amazing architecture, looking at art, and eating beignets at Cafe Du Monde ( yes, they really were all they were cracked up to be). They were definitely not on the endo diet I have been on...but I couldn't resist!

dress: Esley/ballet flats: H&M/bracelets: vintage

I'm sure if you look closely in these photos you can see my goosebumps. Don't get me wrong, it was a pretty decent weekend (and way warmer and dryer than NYC's weather)...but this day it did not get quite as warm as what they were calling for. As soon as we ate our beignets and drank our cafe au laits we went back to the hotel so I could grab my coat, tights, and booties. I'm such a wimp!

I love this new dress I picked up at one of the best boutiques in my neighborhood called Pema New York. Don't you just love the little snowflake design? It's my new favorite babydoll dress in my closet.

The architecture was so pretty. Around every street corner there was an even prettier house and more ornate iron work on the balconies. So lovely.

Now that February is practically over I'm constantly thinking of springtime. Only a few more weeks until spring is officially here (I know this because my brithday is also on the first day of spring: March 20th)...but with all the cold and snow yet to come I need a little bit of visual motivation to get my mind there. These dresses seem to do the trick!

Diane von Furstenberg- Fall 2015 RTW

Diane von Furstenberg's latest collection is full of bold prints, jumpsuits, menswear inspired looks, and of course the classic DVF wrap dress. This collection is 100% beautiful!

Well done DVF...well done!!! 


Mara Hoffman- Fall 2015 RTW

What I love most about Mara Hoffman's collection is how wearable it really is. Bold prints that remind me of the southwest in the 1970's create a strong bohemian vibe that leaves me feeling so very happy. Here are some of my favorite pieces---

Do you have a favorite piece from Mara Hoffman's collection?


Christian Siriano- Fall 2015 RTW

Christian Siriano's collections are always one of my favorites. Year after year he comes through and amazes me with his creative genius. This year was all about funky prints (including animal), Pantone's color of the year, and beautiful choices of material (from silk to feathers to taffeta). This collection is all sorts of drama...but in the most ladylike way possible.

What do you think of Christian Siriano's latest collection?
