Dress: Forever 21 / Trench: H&M / Leopard Pumps: Liz Claiborne / Sunglasses: ModCloth / Lip: Lancome Fearless / Nails: Essie Mink Muffs / Norah Pendant Necklace, Norah Cuff, Nancy Studs, & Tia Crossbody: All on loan from Stella & Dot
Here is Part 2 of the Stella & Dot spring shoot featuring their new line of jewelry and accessories! How amazing is that Norah Pendant?!?! I love how it sparkles and compliments the blue from my dress. Versatility is a big trend this season, and the Tia Crossbody is a great example. Notice how I am not wearing it as a crossbody? The removable strap turns it instantly into a clutch. It photographed a bit pink here, but the true color is more of a coral. I am also a fan of their Sutton Necklace (not pictured) that you can wear 5 different ways.
Shop the shoot here at my online trunk show that I will be hosting for the next three weeks, and view the rest of this fabulous collection! Shoppers will be entered to win free jewelry and pieces at 50% off.
Hope you East Coasters are enjoying this week’s surprisingly warmer weather! Last night, I played in my first soccer game in over a year with 60 degree weather…and we won…and I didn’t suck too terribly. I couldn’t have asked for a better first night back!
The last weekend of June, the hubby and I headed down to Maryland to see our good friends Kurt and Tiffany tie the knot on the Chesapeake Bay. I struggled with whether or not I should buy a maternity dress for this event, but ultimately decided that it wasn’t worth the expense for one night, since this is the last wedding I am going to be able to make before the Little Monkey gets here. Instead, I decided to wear this number I purchased from Forever 21 a few months ago. I wore it to another wedding earlier this year, and because of the stretchy middle material and the flare underneath the bust line, it works perfectly for my prego shape. I topped off the look with earrings from Amrita Singh (a bridemaid’s gift from my friend Katie’s wedding), and these gold sparkly bow pumps. My husband calls them my “Wizard of Oz” shoes, but I absolutely love them. Before you think I am insane for wearing 5 inch heels while 6.5 months pregnant (ok, so maybe I’m a little insane, but heels just make a girl feel prettier, right?), I did end up changing into flats for the dancing portion of the evening. No one needs a pregnant woman falling over on the dance floor.

We got back from our mini-vacation to Maine this weekend, and wow did we have an amazing time! I have so much to share from our trip, but first I want to share some fabulous wedding photos from Kurt and Tiff’s big day. I have lots to edit and catch up on from my time away, so stay tuned this week and next for some exciting posts to come!
I’m now back to my regularly scheduled posts for this week. Here is my third look for the Guilty Jean series. This look is a bit edgy and punk rock-ish. It’s also super comfortable. So glad the weather is warming up and I can actually think about wearing short sleeves! Very exciting.

I’m definitely going to have to venture outside at some point today to enjoy this gorgeous weather. Maybe even head down to watch my soccer team play tonight at Columbus Park. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen the gang.
Hope you all have a beautiful sunny Tuesday!
Here is the first outfit post from my Guilty Jean series, and this is one of my favorite looks of the bunch. The weather was gorgeous for the first time this spring, and I was clearly loving it! This look is girly, flirty, and fun, but definitely has a bit of edge as well. When I found this dress and floral crown, I immediately couldn’t wait to add my Guilty Jean jewelry to complete the look. I love how the skull and bow necklace sits at the perfect length, and the pop of turquoise on the bracelet is a perfect compliment to the pink and black color palette. Spring has finally sprung!

Of course, now that I am back in New York, I am feeling much chillier temps this week. I am eager for that sunny, warm weather I experienced in Maryland this past weekend! Come back to me!
This week has been a bit busy with unpacking, eating Easter leftovers, a girl’s night, and tonight I have photography class. Hope you are all having a good week so far!
Last Saturday we made the trek out to Weehawken, New Jersey for a good friend’s housewarming party. I have driven through the Lincoln Tunnel many times, and have looked up at the houses up in the cliffs imagining the stunning views they must have of Manhattan. Well, on Saturday I no longer had to imagine as I saw this view for myself! WOW. We spent tons of time hanging out on this ledge taking photos before joining the housewarming festivities…which were also a ton of fun by the way! Congrats to my friends on their new digs and their fabulous view!

Last night we held our final screening for our Race to the Oscars. We saw the Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts program! Most people don’t get a chance to see the films in this category, so I always feel like I have an upper hand when guessing the winner. I am always impressed by the level of talent, and this year was no disappointment.

Well, things are starting to get a little bit back to normal here in NYC. There were delays on my subway commute for obvious reasons, but I am super impressed with how quickly NYC is coming back from the disaster named Sandy. I am back to work today and trying to get back into the swing of things. Unfortunately, there are still people out there who need our help, and so I am looking for any opportunities to volunteer with Sandy relief this week if there is anything I can do after work, or for anything during the daytime this weekend. Let me know if you hear of anything!
In other news, I escaped from the city for a quick trip to Maryland this weekend for my high school ten year reunion…yes I said TEN years! How fast does time fly? The Archbishop Spalding Class of 2002 held our reunion at Yellowfin in Annapolis, and it was a blast. There were about 50 of my classmates there, and it was so great to see everyone and catch up. It was a little funny to have name tags on considering in this day and age, most people are on Facebook, and we really know a lot about what everyone is doing already. But it was still nice to have some face to face conversations with friends I hadn’t seen in awhile. ASHS is a place that I remember fondly, and I really enjoyed my four year experience there. It’s a place that I made some of my best friends and a place where we created memories I will never forget.
“We’re the best, you know it’s true. We’re the class of 2002!” -our class cheer 😉
