Weekend Roundup 

Comfy & cozy is key, now that I am in the third trimester. Cardigan | tankleggings  | boots | handbag | styling wand

A $6 manicure in under 5 minutes, is the ultimate quick fix, when in a jam. A little filing and you’re good to go.

I can’t visit New York, without dropping by my favorite blowout spot. Caity also joined me for her first Drybar experience. Blowouts and a Ryan Gosling movie started off the morning (which was so appropriate, since we would be showered with Eva Mendes’s graceful presence later in the day.)

The day kicked off with an interview with the absolute fabulous Eva Chen. Her down to earth style, and amazing stories about her effortless fashion choices (she paired her mom’s 90s crop top underneath that stunning dress she was wearing), make her up to everything you would imagine an Editor-in-Chief to be.

Erica Domesek, Gabi Gregg and Alisa Gould gave advice on engaging in the blogging world.

Eva Mendes looked unbelievably stunning. With her incredibly down to earth demeanor, when asked about her footwear, she simply took off her shoe began searching for the designer’s name. IMG_5272

She then asked a blogger to borrow her scarf to demonstrate how she styles her signature head wraps.

Styled in her new line for New York & Co, she explained how heavily involved she is in the process. More excitingly she expressed to us her love for the vintage belt she paired for under $3!

Post-wedding glow and all, Kate Bosworth gushed about her wedding day, Oscar de la Renta, and her new collection for TopShop (that she came decked in, looking so effortlessly edgy-chic) She really emphasized her love for fashion as a reflection of one’s inner self, and I couldn’t agree more.

I visited Covet to explore their fun new styling app.

Denim for Days

Denim for Days

After a week of sporting Fall scarves and sweaters, it finally feels like Spring! I couldn’t wait to put to use some of my Spring finds. A denim jacket is the ultimate staple, it’s practically the mother to the chambray shirt–just as fabulous, yet it goes with literally everything.. and them some. I have a few denim jackets of medium and dark washes and a variety of lengths, but never really stumbled upon a great light wash. I was so excited when I received this Spring essential from AG Adriano Goldschmied. It was perfect. I apologize in advance for excessive wear.

Spring has finally sprung in Western Pennsylvania, and I couldn’t be more excited. Warm weather puts me in such a good mood, from running outside in the sunshine, driving with the window down or seeing fresh flowers. I’ve been itching to sport my favorite Spring styles, and mixed prints were top on my list.

Cali Bound

En route to la la land for Lucky Magazine’s FABB Conference, I took an early morning flight from Pittsburgh. I was delightfully surprised when I stepped off the plane in San Francisco to see the array of great shopping. I ventured into Mango and spotted a pair of distressed skinny jeans in a light wash, that make a great Spring staple, and a pair of embellished denim shorts.

On the search for healthy options, I came across Fraîche, a homemade, organic yogurt spot, offering fresh pressed juice, and gluten free, vegan yogurts, I was definitely in my glory. San Fran is holding the top spot of favorite airports, thus far.

After a short flight to LA, I headed to my favorite LA spot, The Grove, to meet up with my friend I am staying with for a little shopping.

I was so happy to be in the Cali sun, and inspired, found an bright hued ensemble to wear to Day 1 of the conference.

Heading over to the Farmer’s Market, we had dinner at The Veggie Grill, which has a kale salad that was to die for, (definitely my new favorite spot!)

Stylehaus hosted a pre-fabb soiree, equipped with cocktails, beauty and great gifts. I can’t wait to try out the Aloxxi line of product.

I bought these shoes for my friend’s wedding and were the most comfortable heels I have worn! The gold and silver combo make them the perfect hybrid for any occasion or ensemble. I love throwing on a statement shoe to transform an outfit of simple staples. And who doesn’t love a little sparkle?

Spending the week in warm weather and sunshine was the perfect way to start off the new year. A start to my Spring wardrobe, and new beauty additions are such a tease when having to finish off the next couple months of Winter. Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray is my new favorite must-have.
