Rainy Day

Sometimes a rainy day is the best, however when you have tons of driving and running around to do not so much. Hopefully tomorrow we will finally see some sunshine...

Buttons Make the Difference

While I was at home for Thanksgiving I was looking through our extra closets and stumbled upon a great navy coat from my childhood. I tried it on an it fit, with adorable cropped length sleeves, and amazing detail in the back. The buttons however were really dated. So my sweet mom and I decided to give this little coat a makeover with new buttons. I love the look of wooden buttons so for $5 in buttons I have a great new coat!

Winter White Nails

Lately I have been turning toward sparkling nail, either glitter or opalescent. I wanted to wear a neutral shade so white jumped to mind. I love the shine of this color and with a few coats of clear topcoat it looks as good as a manicure, well almost...

I just returned from 5 amazing days in NY with my best friend who recently moved there, and we are now completely obsessed with this app. Its sort of like twitter but better, you send pics of where you are or what your doing and it links to facebook, twitter, tunblr etc. You can apply filters to the images you take and have friends follow you.

Tonight my roommates, neighbors and I are having a little bonfire. I love when the weather is cool enough to enjoy sitting by a fire. Add a wool sweater and s'mores to the mix and it should be a great Wednesday night!

New Girl Talk

I would never pretend to be musically trendsetting but I do like music, so I was super excited when the new Girl Talk album was released today! This only fuels my excitement for the concert in January!

Todays Look: Scarf

I see girls wear little silk scarves all the time and never thought I could pull it off without looking ridiculous. This morning I decided to throw one on (maybe its the allergy medicine...) but I was pretty happy with the finished look. I also find myself wearing more and more color-today is a great example.

Studded Pumps

I was looking at pics on teh set of my favorite show -Gossip Girl -and saw Blake Livey's shoes and fell in love. I had seen them in Sex and the City pics too and just saw them as a dream, as they are WAY to pricey for me. Then low and behold I found these:

$20 later I have nearly the same shoe! The gold studs and clear sides will be amazing with tights this season!!

Earring Remix

My sweet grandmother gave me some of her costume jewelry recently, which I have been completely obsessed with. However some of the earrings were missing their mate. I knew I could find a great use for them so I took them anyway, so I decided to clip one on a pair of bead bracelets. I was pretty happy with the turnout, it added a little charm and sparkle to the dull wood finish giving them an overal chic look.

Lately when I look for new nail polishes I seem to gravitate toward glitter, something about the texture and sparkle seems to always grab my eye. And as not to look like I am in second grade I think layering colors gives a more sophisticated look! Pale purple with a pink glitter top coat r like they are currently, burgundy with a blue and purple polka dot shimmery top coat.

Todays Look: Socks & Sandals

It was particularly cold when I took Henry out this morning so I decided to keep sweat pants on. I chose a silk shell and white blazer for work. I added polka dot socks and my favorite purple alligator sandals.

Bedside Table

I snagged a great old table from my Grandmother, it was poorly painted white but the aged look of it really spoke to me. I found an inexpensive lamp and added a few antiques from my Mom and I think I can almost say my room is complete!
