Thrown Together

Top//Jeans//Scarf (Similar)//Shoes//Bracelet (Mimi Jay)

So here is what I wear when I'm feeling a bit lackluster...No time to do hair? No problem. No color on my face because I'm feeling drained? No problem. All easily fixed with a colorful scarf, some sunglasses and a messy bun. Thank God messy buns were deemed cool a while back, are they still? Not sure but they work for me!

The bracelet on my arm is a new design...I'm still tweaking it, but I like the mix of peach and oxidized metal. Once my little nugget starts school next week I'll be doing much more jewelry. I'm getting excited, but have some mixed feelings that my baby's world isn't going to be all about me anymore.

Labor Day Sales That are Actually Really Great

Labor Day is always a great time to shop, but sometimes the sales suck if you dont know which ones to look for. I hate the sales that are advertised and the only discounts you get are on shorts and summer/spring items. I want fall items now, so why waste my money on another pair of flip-flops just bc they're on sale? These are my top choices of awesomely priced sales going on through Monday...check it out:) 

Be sure to use the codes..."LABORDAY" for Joesjeans.com as well as for Loeffler Randall...For C Wonder a 30% discount will be automatically applied at checkout.

Every Summer Has A Story: End of Summer Party

Keep these in a bucket to throw at the end of the party...Source

Summer is nearing an end, and its gone by so fast. We've been out of town so  much that we haven't entertained at all. If I had more time, I'd put together a party for this three day weekend...Wouldn't it be awesome to have an over the top end of summer party to really get it all out of your system and feel ready for Fall?

We'd all be sitting here...

I'd be wearing this dress beacause I doubt I'd have a reason to wear it again the rest of the year...unless I covered it up with a jacket.
Serving up some awesome homeade popsicles infused with vodka...
I'd set up the table with foods that scream summer.  I love this set up by peartree greetings.

That saying, "Every Summer Has a Story" is so true. I remember so much of my life based off the seasons. For some reason summer has always left a big impression, and topping it off with an end of summer party would be perfect!

Wanted: Rose Grey and Silver

I always love piecing together items on my wish list... I've been feeling a little stressed lately and am feeling some new pressures as a parent that I honestly never would have thought I'd give in to. Thats why when my sweet litte man is playing cars and trucks, I find so much relief in blogging and being creative. And I ALWAYS enjoy a little shopping too...JCrew is having a great sale, thats where the top and blazer are from, so check it out before it's over...use code SHOPNOW.

Tigh Front Denim and San Francisco

Vest (similar)// Sweatshirt//Pants//Necklace (Mimi Jay)/Sneakers//Bag

I tied up this denim vest over a sweatshirt for our recent trip to San Francisco.  It was a bit chilly in the morning but by the afternoon the sun was shining and it was beautiful! We had an amazing time but its good to be home. My little boy starts preschool in a couple weeks and I want to get him back into a routine. We've travled so much this summer that sometimes I wonder if being in new places so much might have a negative effect on him. Although he does seems to enjoy himself quite a bit. 

Regardless, San Francisco is a place we will definitely return to. There is so much to do, and I like that it gives a nice balance of New York city life with gorgeous California coastlines. We went all over the place: Chrissy Field to get great views of the Golden Gate, Fishermans Warf for sea lions, the Ferry Market for amazing food booths and views, Union Square for shopping and so much more. Travel makes me feel so alive, and we always come back happy and ready to plan our next adventure:)

A Few New Items

Showcasing some recent jewelry creations... 
I made this one because my mother has always liked turquoise but I always find turquoise jewelry to be too "country western." So I added some gunmetal to change the vibe...what do you think?
I decided to make a yellow necklace that isn't too drippingly sweet and sunny... I guess those who have followed for a long time, know that I prefer to make jewelry with a bit of edge...
And this necklace below seems to fit all personalities...not too edgy, not too girly, but half and half:)

You can find any of these necklaces here at the shop.

Day Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit// Bag// Fedora (Similar)//Sandals

Been talking a lot about jumpsuits, so thought I'd post this pic of how I wore it last Sunday:) 

I like the relaxed look almost as much as when it's dressed up with heels. Its such an easy thing to throw on and its so comfortable. I wore it to a trip to the Melrose Flea Market. If you havent been its such a fun place to spend a few hours when you're in LA. Lots to to look at and plenty of vintage pieces. I couldve stayed all day but we brought the little one with us, and after an hour, he was done.

Henri Bendel Sale

Bendels was the first store when I moved to New York that just totally knocked my socks off. I walked in and smelled all the wonderful smells, and ran to all the tons and tons of accessories on display everywhere. There was so  much amazing stuff it was almost, yet not quite overwhelming! It's the only department store in New York that focuses 100% soley on beauty and accesories and its 2 floors of gorgeousness.

Their sale items are just as amazing, so I picked my favorites for you to see. I always check their sales because you can find great gifts like this chocolate candle, and I always find essentials that can transition from one season to the next.

Walking With Authority

Necklace (Mimi Jay)//Pants (Jet by John Eshaya) //Sandals (Matt Bernson)//Bag(Valentino)

I clearly cant get away from black when I'm in New York. It's just so fitting. It's durable and easy and according to the Huffington post, it gives off an authoritative look, which I guess you want when walking down the street, am I right?! 

I wore this look to a casual dinner and a nice walk along the Hudson River. We saw a beautiful sunset in between the buildings so I had to snap a pic. I always love the scent of the Hudson. I'm not sure how clean the water actually is, but to me it smells like Febreeze fabric freshener with a little extra salt added in. Yum, with a nice breeze and that amazing scent, a walk by the river is one of my favorite things to do.
