Empire State of Mind

Hey y’all!

So in case you don’t follow me on Snapchat (which you should – trendkeeper), I went to New York City a couple weekends ago! We went with another couple we’re friends with and I had such a great time. NYC is one of my all time favorite cities and I enjoy it every single time I go. So get ready for some Empire State of Mind posts hahaa.. in this case, an OOTD taken in the financial district!

Personally, I prefer that area of NYC compared to busier areas like Times Square or 5th. It’s busy enough to be inspiring but still calm enough to be a little quaint. Unfortunately it was FREEZING outside – hellooo Winter in the northeast! And it’s only gotten worse from there.. but that’s for another post. So I wore my comfy Lazy sweater with my new favorite puffer vest while we went sightseeing around this part of town and up One World Trade Center. Which by the way is a must-do if you’re ever in the city.

My over the knee boots lasted me most of the day before they started hurting – but I love them so much, I couldn’t resist wearing them!

Puffer Vest

Hey y’all! Hope you’re having an amazing day and welcome back.. 🙂 In case you missed it, be sure to enter my giveaway HERE!

Lately the weather has been super winter-ish and I finally got my first puffer vest – so I think this calls for a celebration. This vest was only $10 on sale for black friday and the color is seriously my all time favorite color. It’s a super bright blue and I loved mixing it with a white sweater and the most comfortable leggings. I basically live in leggings all Winter long every year!

Unbuttoned Plaid

Hey y’all! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far! Am I the only one who really feels like it should be almost the weekend..? Just me..?

I’ve had quite an eventful past few days coming from Grandma over here! Last night I went to a pre-season Capitals hockey game – so fun! Sunday we went into the city to get a street hot dog with cheese (a must for DC), went to a farmers market, and watched the Cowboys game on Capitol Hill. You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take the Texas out of the girl (go cowboys)!

This dress is my go-to for pretty much any occasion, and I paired it with an unbuttoned plaid top as a “cardigan” of sorts. One of my favorite ways to wear flannel in Fall!

Hey y’all and happy Friday! I’m not sure what the plan is for this weekend, but I’m very excited to sleep in – haha! It’s also still rainy up here in DC but the cool weather feels perfect! We’re staying in the 60’s or right around 70. How’s the weather where you live?

Earlier this week though my husband and I made the trek into the city since we won a vacation..woohooo! I will definitely do a full review of this at a later date once we get further into the process. But it felt amazing outside and I found a cute street, so it was the perfect time to take some Fall fashion photos – with my favorite platform booties.

These booties might look uncomfortable, but they are the most comfortable booties I own! I really think that can be credited to the platform in it. It takes away some of the pressure put on your feet by heels and lets you walk a little flatter but with support.

Blanket Scarf and a Chambray Dress

Hey y’all! Who else is so ready for fall fashion on the daily?! I got to wear my favorite blanket scarf and a chambray dress over the weekend. We took our pup to the dog park to enjoy the beautiful weather. I also did a full tutorial on 10 ways to wear a blanket scarf in under 5 minutes – check it out HERE!

As happy as I am that the weather has finally cooled down, I just know I’m going to regret it in a few months! I’m definitely a warm weather person, but I just love the holidays, fall clothes, and the cozi-ness. Fingers crossed we don’t get another blizzard this year!

The weather is going to be rainy the rest of the week, so I’m ready to make some pumpkin spice everything, pull out all my leggings, and watch a ton of netflix! Too bad my husband is already getting tired of pumpkin flavored stuff.. is that even possible?!

Anyways, I have a feeling I’ll be living in this chambray dress all Fall. It fits so comfortably and is long enough to be cool-weather appropriate. I’m thinking of pairing it like this with a blanket scarf, with flannel or a warm leather jacket all season long!

As usual, you can shop this look and similar products of all price ranges in the slider below. I’d also love to know! Do you like a slider over separate links? Would you like to see a separate slider for each clothing item? Let me know in the comments!

Annapolis Harbor Outfit

Hey y’all!

I’ve been a little MIA lately since work has been completely insane! The other weekend, though, the hubs and I took a little day trip to Annapolis to get dinner on the harbor and walk around town. It was a super cute town with small shops, nice waterfront restaurants, and the naval academy. So I thought I’d share with you my Annapolis Harbor Outfit!

It was also perfect outdoor weather, so I took full advantage to whip out my favorite tunic and some booties! ALSO – The shorts I linked to in my slider are only $4!! Crazy good deal!

The weather has heated up quite a bit since that weekend, but I still love finding ways to wear tunics year-round. I love a good, thin tunic with denim shorts during the summer – but pairing it with leggings and a faux fur vest for Fall/Winter!

I also got this huge bag a few weeks ago from Target since I’ve been having to travel quite a bit lately. It fits my larger work laptop and everything I could possibly need for day trips!

If you’re ever in Annapolis, I would definitely recommend walking around the Annapolis Harbor. A great restaurant was called Carrol’s Creek! We both got crab soup then split the calamari and oysters. The calamari was the best thing we ate there!

Cardigan Weather

Hey y’all! So it’s about to get crazy hot up in the northeast, but this long weekend we had beautiful weather in the 70’s and it was… you guessed it.. cardigan weather!

On Friday before the long weekend, the hubs and I decided to take a walk to our favorite sushi place for lunch a few blocks away. Unfortunately on the way back I dropped my phone and shattered the screen (!!!), but we had a great lunch getting some sushi and potstickers, enjoying the wonderful weather sitting outside. I finally got to throw on my all-time favorite cardigan and my new favorite booties!

These booties are seriously crazy comfortable. I walked around the city in them all weekend with zero pain – probably because they’re platform, but super cute. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing them ALL Fall long!

Bow Booties

Hey y’all and Happy Monday!

Today I’m here sharing with you my new all-time-favorite BOOTIES! They have a bow on them and they are so.. SO adorable. I’m already obsessed and it isn’t even Fall yet – but booties are a year-round shoe in my opinion.

I took these photos this last weekend when I went down to National Harbor in Maryland and did a little shopping at Pepper Palace. In case you’ve never heard of this shop, you should definitely check them out and get some amazing food items – we stocked up on salsa, queso, and wing sauce – YUM.

And yes, these photos are taken in a parking garage stairwell. But I like stairs – OKAY?!

This top is also one of my favorite tops of all time. It’s insanely soft and comfortable, and it’s thin enough to wear during that transition time between summer and fall.
