Favorite Pins pt.8 – Stripes

 

Here’s to another month filled with my favorite pins on my Currently Coveting board. This month I’m all about Stripes and I have to admit I was a little jealous when I missed National Stripes Day which is J.Crews very own holiday. For now I’ll just pin the hell out of my Pinterest board and look for some cute tops to buy. My favorite is number 1. The color is perfect for spring and off the shoulder tops are still in right now.  It’s also on sale right now for $54.99.

I currently own three striped tops, two are blue and white and the other is grey and white. My mini collection needs some color and I think the yellow and red tops would be the perfect. My ideal go to summer weekend look would be the yellow top paired high wasted denim shorts and espadrilles from Soludos. Number 5 is my second option and I would pair it with a short denim skirt and sandals.  Which top do you like best? Let me know in the comments below.

Bell sleeves are my favorite and these two tops are my go to shirts for spring. This pink Asos shirt is still available on the website for $20. Click here to buy one for yourself or check out other bell sleeve looks. I just got this top from Zara last week and it cost $49.90.  It’s cute right? Ever since I bought my yellow J.Crew coat I fell in love with the color.

Bake with me-Mini Oreo Cheesecake

After a few failed attempts I’m learning how to bake again. I found a recipe on Pinterest and I made mini Oreo cheesecakes. Cheesecake is so good and I LOVE Oreos so why not make something sweet to enjoy during the weekend. This recipe has 7 ingredients and I had most of them I had in my apartment which was very helpful. I’m not afraid to admit that I can eat two sleeves of Oreos in one sitting.  They’re the best!

The end product came out so good! I honestly thought I would destroy them in the oven but I succeeded at baking WOOO! It’s the perfect way to get some sweets in without feeling guilty. Well you might because the amount of cookies, butter and sugar you use is insane but insanely delicious! Let me know if you try this recipe! Trust me it’s so good. Obviously it’s not going to look exactly like the recipe photos from the link but I tried!

Ingredients – for the full breakdown click this link  – I followed the recipe from The First Year Blog 

Oreo crumbs

Butter

All about athleisure

 

I had the chance to visit Kit & Ace for a fit and design session about a week ago.  Athleisure has appeared in some of my favorite fashion magazines as the go to clothing option for models and I understand why. It’s such a simple and fashionable way to get ready in the morning. Imagine having workout tops and leggings that are stylish enough to wear to work!! The wave dress and the weekend brush hoodie were my favorite pieces from the session. The brush hoodie has a boyfriend fit and I’m really into the loose fit trend right now. What do you guys think of the wave dress? I might make this my go to summer weekend look! Want to see more post?? Follow me on Bloglovin to keep up with everything new.

Jewelry fun with BaubleBar

 

Sweater: Ralph Lauren, Jeans: H&M, Slides: Chinese Laundry (DSW), Earrings: Bauble Bar, Purse: Prada

My BaubleBar jewelry came in the mail! I’ve met a lot people who can’t stop raving about the website so of course I picked up some stuff for myself. I bought the Flamenco Drop earrings in Periwinkle and the Celestial Ribbon Choker. I wore my Flamenco Drop earrings to High tea and that was all I needed to dress up my outfit. The right accessories can make your outfit 100% better and the Flamenco Drops are so fun and colorful.  I have my eye on the red Crispin Drops for the summer, they would go perfectly with my rompers and summer outfits.  I wore my Celestial Ribbon Choker a few times and I’m in love with it. I was so late to the choker trend but now I’m fully on board and obsessed.

On another note, I broke out my slides again! These were definitely an impulse purchase from DSW as is everything else I get from there. The brand is Chinese Laundry and they’re very comfortable. I’m still into the slide trend and that’s not stopping for me anytime soon. Before you head out, click the link in my sidebar to check out the website and buy some stuff for yourself. BaubleBar has some really great deals so click the sale link first.


Tea time at the Boston Public Library

Dress: Asos,   Shoes: Asos,   Bag: Prada

This past weekend I crossed another thing off my Boston To-Do list, Tea at the Boston Public Library with my boyfriend. The winter tea schedule ends on January 31st and getting a reservation was extremely difficult but lucky for me, I got a spot!  Our reservation was at 12:30 which was the perfect time because we were starving! We had sweets, scones, finger sandwiches and delicious fruity tea. With some prosecco on the side, tea time was everything I hoped for. I think the library has a tea schedule during the summer so keep a lookout for that. I know a few other hotels in Boston also have a tea schedule like the Langham, The Taj, Four Seasons, and the Ritz.

High tea is a cute weekend date idea for you and your significant other. The environment was very relaxed so you don’t need to “dress” up. Overall high tea gets a 10 out of 10 from me! It’s definitely not an every weekend thing but I do want to go back in a few months.  My new Asos dress was perfect for the beautiful weather we had this weekend here in Boston. Whenever it’s above 50 degrees in the winter EVERYONE comes out. We know it’s only a matter of time before the next snowstorm hits. I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! Thanks for stopping by.

Pom Pom Sweater

The story behind this sweater is a short one. The sweater arrived in the mail completely wrong. Only one sleeve had the poms on it so I took it to my cleaners for some alterations. I really like the end result with the two poms on the each sleeve. Poms on sweaters were big in 2016 but I’m bringing  it with me into the New Year.  Also, Happy New Year! This is the time of year we really try to push ourselves to start those new year’s resolutions.

I want to accomplish a lot of personal goals this year. I want to open myself up and meet new people. I can be very shy at times and I’m not sure why. I’m a very outgoing and loud person it’s strange when that just switches off. I also don’t want to worry about what people think so much. Ashley from Brunch on Chestnut had a great post about personal goals and one was to stop comparing her blog to others. I learned that my work isn’t the same as others. We all have goals so I need to focus on mine and stop stressing out.

And finally I need to squeeze in ME time when it’s necessary. I tend to worry so much about others I forget that I need a little TLC too. I plan to schedule more mani/pedis and massages for myself. Thank you for reading. Make sure to subscribe to my blog for new post updates!

Asos Dress & H&M Flats

Dress: Asos, Flats: H&M,  Bag: Marshalls

This dress reminds me of the Wall Charades account (by Jennifer Lake) I follow on Instagram. Bloggers submit photos of themselves behind cool backgrounds around the U.S. I fell in love with this dress because of the color and fun design. I don’t own much green and this was the dress I needed to change my mind about the color. My flats are from H&M and they are so dependable. I’m pretty sure I bought these when I was in desperate need of flats and they’re still in great shape.

When I don’t feel like throwing on heels or my boots, my H&M flats alway’s comes to the rescue. When the weather is dreary, I like to keep it bright with this dress. Life news.. I started a new job recently and I’m so happy, excited, over the moon.. All of that! There was a time when I felt like my life was on pause and I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. I’m still young and I have a lot of learning to do but I’m excited to see where this position takes me. What’s new with you guys? Any fun New Year updates?! Comment below and let me know!

 

J.Crew and Sequins

Outfit details: Turtleneck sweater: J.Crew (old)  Sequined skirt , Heels: Asos

I never thought I would say this but I really love this sequined skirt from J.Crew Factory! I wanted to put together a post about this outfit because it’s perfect for a New Years Eve party with friends or family. J.Crew Factory is the place to shop if you like J.Crew stuff but don’t feel like spending a ton of money.

I feel like I’m really getting into the NYE spirit with the sequins. I plan on buying more sequined items when the time is right but for now this skirt will do just fine. I’ve linked the details to this look at the beginning of this post, check it out before you leave. How do you guys like to style sequins during the holiday? Tell me I would love to know! Also, can you believe NYE is in TWO DAYS!!!? This year ended on such a great note and I’m excited to see what 2017 brings.
