Faux Leather Jacket and Scarf//Zara  Sweater and Jeans//H&M   Boots//Chinese Laundry  Crossbody//Louis Vuitton  Hat//H&M also love this one

Happy Sunday!  Today’s post is another outfit worn while in NYC while my mom and I had a shopping day!  Shopping in NYC is heaven (needless to say).  We were both exhausted by the end of this day as we were up at the crack of dawn at 5:30am to go check out Good Morning America but it was well worth it.   I seriously see why they call it the city that never sleeps!   There is just so much to do and so little time.  :)

About the outfit – This faux leather jacket and scarf I found at Zara there are my new faves!   I actually planned on bringing a leather jacket with me that I had ordered online prior to this trip but it didn’t come soon enough, SO i ended up having to purchase one while in NYC.   Darn.  :)  I wasn’t too mad about it since I found one I like even better.  This jacket is my new fave and I’ve worn it non-stop since!

I’m also loving hats this fall!  I think it added a bit of classic to an otherwise edgier outfit.  I actually threw the hat on since there was no time for washing my hair before going to GMA.  :)  You’ve got to love hats for times like those.

What are your thoughts on fall hats?

As alway’s, thanks for reading!

XO, Amanda

Comfy shoes were crucial for all the walking we did in NYC!!  I did change into some boots later in the day for an event though. :)

Hi everyone!  I wanted to post one of the days from when my family and I were in NYC last week.   After all, what better place to take blog pictures than this lovely city!  Everywhere you turn is an aesthetically pleasing view whether it be the architecture, culture or overall ambiance of the city that never sleeps!  (Thanks to my wonderful mom for taking all these pics!!)  We went sight seeing during the day, which included the Brooklyn Bridge where there are absolutely amazing views of Manhattan (seen in the pics above)- truly breathtaking!  The weekend we were there also happened to be the weekend that Simply Stylist was having their event in New York.  Once I found out this was going on the same weekend I jumped all over it.  For those of you that don’t know what Simply Stylist is, it’s a networking event that brings together like minded people that love the fashion and beauty industry!  Such a cool concept.  I wish I had the time to go to some of the panels, but it was just neat to go around to the different booths and meet some entreprenuers and marketing professionals in the fashion and beauty industry as well as some fellow bloggers.

I just LOVE this city and can’t wait to go back!  More outfit posts to come from my trip to NYC on the blog soon.  <3

Loving cocoon sweaters and booties for fall. <3

I love a good striped shirt always and forever!  I paired this Heidi Merrick Nordstrom Rack one with these Steve Madden leopard flats similar here.  Love mixing patterns.

You can never go wrong with a black and white dress (similar here) and nude heels- great for work!  I also love mixing metals and I’m always wearing this Lagos Caviar bracelet!

IMG_9510

 

Love hats for fall and the color camel is a must for the fall season.   Head to toe H&M.  They have a great selection of sweaters and fall accessories!

IMG_9760

Another light weight cocoon sweater – great for layering, even on warmer fall days when you need a little something over those shoulders!  Love this one from Nordstrom.

IMG_9263

 

Although it’s getting too cold to wear an outfit like this one now, I thought I’d add it in anyways!  Got to love a good graphic tee with a little french phrase and boyfriend shorts or jeans now.

IMG_8710

 

You might need to throw a trench coat or leather jacket on with it now, but you can never to wrong with a LBD.  This is a work staple for me!  What’s even better is it was $20 at Nordstrom Rack this summer!  Such a great find. :)

Hi all! It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’ve missed it!  Hopefully I will get back to posting regularly again sooner than later!  Today I wanted to share some of my fave instagram posts as of lately!  Trending here you will see a LOT of neutrals!  I always like wearing neutrals but for fall I’ve been loving them even more it seems!  There is just something so classically chic about them.  They are timeless!  Best to invest in some good neutral pieces as they are bound to be around a lot longer.  :)

What are your favorite fall trends right now and what are some of your favorite ‘timeless’ neutrals?  Please do share.  :)

Thanks for reading!

Hello all!!  It’s been a while since I’ve posted – mainly due to the fact I moved and no longer have my wonderful greatly missed photographer.  :(  Thank goodness my mother is able to take photos when I’m in town every once in a while.  Anyway!  Let’s get to the outfit.  I took these photos a couple weeks ago while I was back in town over the long Labor Day weekend.  It’s getting a bit too chilly here for shorts now as summer is coming to an end.  I will miss it, but am ready for all the fun Fall fashion!  Alway’s a good season for fashion.  As you all know by now, I’m very in to graphic tees and was excited when I found a couple at the J.Crew Outlet a while back (this New York one as well as one that say’s C’est La Vie – my fave!)  I found these very comfy Rag & Bone boyfriend shorts and Rebecca Minkoff cross-body recently at Nordstrom Rack and are two of some of my favorite pieces.  I’ve worn the shorts a ton this last month and the cross-body is a perfect universal piece that can be worn all seasons but I love the color for Fall.  I’m extremely into neutrals as usual but for Fall I’m loving grey, camel, blush and pastels!  What are you most excited to wear this Fall?

Thanks for reading!

XO,

Amanda

Hi all!  It’s officially summer now and the days are getting warmer (and muggier for some)!  Warmer days can only call for shorts and lighter materials!!  I love my Zara cut offs and linen like top from last year.  They have some very similar styles that are on sale, I might add!  As I’ve stressed before, I absolutely LOVE wearing white in the summer time.  There is something so effortlessly chic about it.  It has to be the most clean, light and fitting “color” during the hot summer days.

Hope you all have a Happy 4th of July and enjoy some nice warm weather outside! :)

Birthday Weekend!

IMG_8317

My Birthday weekend started out with getting the hair done while back home!  It needed a real good cut and color!  It had been a couple of months so thanks to my cousin for getting me in on my birthday weekend while I was back.  :)  It was MUCH needed.

IMG_8321

After getting our hair done and pretty, my mom and I went to lunch at one of my favorite salad places back home, Greenbelly.  I definitely did not realize how much I’d miss certain things after moving!

These next few pictures are of my “Teddy Bear” and I posing for our Birthday pic before a night out at the CWS (can’t miss it as it always falls during the birthday, making it that much more fun)!  That’s right, our family dog, Teddy and I have the same birthday.  No wonder we love each other so much!  ;)  And don’t worry, we celebrated with ice cream cake the very next day and Teddy got a “pup tart.”  :)  It was such a great weekend filled with family, friends and love!  <3

Hi all!  I’m overalling it up for today’s post!  The overall trend really does take me back to middle school days!  Oh my goodness!  I love the new details they are adding to them these days – MUCH more flattering than the ones I wore in middle school I must add.  I love the skinny bottoms and the way the top half cuts in creating a more slimming effect.

What do you think?  Love the trend or hate?  I’m ready for some short ones now!  :)

As always, thanks for stopping by!  <3
