Red, White & MAJOR Black Friday Sales

Coat: J.Crew (take 30% OFF using code: HOLIDAY) | Turtleneck: Aritzia (similar here & here) | Denim: Gap (take 50% OFF using code: BLKFRIDAY) | Purse: Chloe | Sunnies: Ray-Ban (c/o DITTO - use code: ANDPRETTYTHINGS to get your first month free) | Heels: (c/o) Steve Madden

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! These photos were taken last week when the temps were still quite mild. And TBH, it's pretty warm on the east coast (mid-sixties) for it being the end of November - but  definitely not complaining. :)
I didn't put in much thought for I wanted to write in this post, but as it's Thanksgiving Day, what I'm thankful for this year should be quite apt. This year has been amazing thus far and with so much to be grateful for, one definitely stands out from the rest, and that being real friendships and relationships. Being in my (later) mid-twenties, I definitely value the quality of my friends over quantity. And in the last couple years, my circle of friends have become fewer but so much better & real. Quality over quantity any day. 

Anyway, hope everyone is enjoying their time off with friends & family <3

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It's Christmas in July, with Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale (now open to everyone, with or without a Nordstrom card). If you don't know yet, Nordstrom has free shipping (even for returns - no matter what you purchase, and how much you purchase). They literally have the best customer service ever. 

Below are my picks for the anniversary sale. They're all new, fall inventory on sale until August 2nd, then they all go back up to retail price. So shop fast! 

This Burberry coat in black, saving myself $300~  

These Sperry boots, because we all know they'll be sold out worldwide once it comes late fall.

Hello STUART WEITZMAN. Yes, they are part of the anniversary sale. You're welcome.
Is it fall yet, because all I want to wear are these over-the-knee boots.

Easy, Breezy, Side Split Maxi

I love nothing more than a maxi skirt with 2 high splits. More than just the ease of a maxi skirt, I love the way a maxi moves with the wind blows. Sometimes, outfits just look better when they're in motion.
Sunnies: Prada | Denim jacket: J.Crew | V-neck: J. Crew (literally obsessed.. I bought them in 4 colors) | Maxi skirt: old Zara (similar here, here & super affordable one here) | Necklaces: HRH Collection | Sandals: old SM (love these, these & these) | Beach tote: Mar y Sol (need these too)

These photos were taken last weekend, thanks to Vanny, after lunch at The Back Room. (You can see the amazing spread over on my Instagram.) And a HUGE thank you to everyone at The Back Room for hosting The Ladies Brunch Club, the amazing meal & the even better service. We will be back for sure.

Anyway, back to the outfit.. these were taken in front of the brand new, 1 Hotel Central Park, founded by Barry Sternlicht of W Hotels and the Baccarat, and their amazing herb wall. In the middle of the concrete jungle lies this eco-luxe hotel with living, breathing, ivy walls & herb gardens open to the public to clip and take home. And they're literally a block away from Central Park... so the next time you're there, walk a block over and check them out (58th St and 6th Ave).

P.S- Anyone notice the small facelift my blog underwent? :) Let me know your thoughts! It's not done yet, but slowing working on it.

Red, White & Blue

4th of July came and went, which means that we're well into the second half of the year. They say times flies when you're having fun, and 2015 has definitely been amazing thus far. I know I've been on and off blogging, and I have no excuses other than that life gets in the way, but I'm back and here to stay. Thanks for sticking around :)
Purse: c/o Coach | Panama hat: J.Crew | Sunnies: old Pixie Market (similar here, and under $6 here!!) | Crop Top: Nordstrom | White culottes: Aritzia (sold out in white, but similar here and here) | Sandals: Banana Republic | Necklaces: HRH Collection
I spent this 4th of July weekend here in NYC, and loved every single minute of it (see all that I've done on Instagram). My girl, Vanny and I had brunch at Narcissa (SO obsessed with their outdoor garden) and took the day to stroll the quiet city and shoot for our blogs. It's been such a blessing to have friends who also blog but also have quiet the eye for photography. 

And for the spirit of 4th of July, I attempted to wear red, white and blue - thanks to Coach for the red purse that came in just in time for the holiday weekend, and BIG thanks to Vanny for knowing exactly where the perfect blue wall would be.
Anyway, now just getting back into the swing of things at work. It always seems like I need a vacation post vacation (or a long weekend in my case) just to get my sh!t together. I'm not alone, right?
