How to Complete an Outfit: Statement Belt

Don’t get me wrong, I love an easy summer outfit BUT at times I find myself thinking they can seem a bit unfinished.  It’s easy in the cooler months when you can layer with a jacket or add a scarf or hat.  It gives the outfit a bit of dimension and makes it seem balanced and complete.  I think the answer to this in the warmer temps is a belt.  Belts come and go as far as fashion trends but they are definitely in right now.  Statement belts are having such a moment and I am certainly not complaining about it!  This western belt has been a staple for me.  I wear it ALL.  THE.  TIME!  I just love how it can pull an outfit together.

Last weekend I had it on with jeans, a tee and red heels for a Friday night out with friends downtown and I pair it with distressed denim shorts for a daytime look often too.  [wearing a small]

I have my eye on this one too.  I love it!  && I am dying over the stars on this one!

Oh, and I know this off the shoulder top is just a plain black knit and nothing special really but it has served me well!  I have ended up needing it with so many outfits.  It’s only $25 so grab one.   It’ll come in handy! …and now that I think about it, I should definitely grab one in white.  Going to order that today! [wearing a xs]

We took these pics on the cobblestone streets in Soho.  Soho will forever be one of my favorite areas to be during the day in NYC.  I love the shopping (even if it is often just window shopping) and the fact that there’s so many great coffee shops, restaurants and little bars for a cocktail.  It’s where you will find many of the trendy well known spots and it’s also where you will run into a new little gem during each trip.  Ethan and I found a great little bar with a rosé happy hour that we stopped into!

Happy Friday, loves!  Ethan and I are headed to a patio party later tonight and I am looking forward to a glass of wine and the feeling of the weekend. Hope you all have a good one!

An outfit I am Loving

There’s nothing I love more than a white sweater and jeans.  There’s just something classic about the combo so I put together an outfit surround the sweater I just bought below.

CLICK ON ANY ITEM ABOVE TO SHOP!

SWEATER–I am really excited about this one.  I cant wait for it to arrive!

JEANS–I am craving a pair of straight leg, lighter wash jeans that aren’t distressed and these seem perfect. (fyi, I size up with this brand)

WEDGES–You need these in at least one of the colors.  They are SO good.

HAT–Loving the wide brim on this one.

NECKLACE–This layered look?  Gimmie!

SUNGLASSES–Yesssss, these are FINALLY available in gold!  I wear my black all the time so I know these will be great too.

BAG–So darn cute, right?  And affordable.  This one comes in other colors too but the white just made it into my cart!

I hope you all are having a great weekend!


Coffee Shop Lover

One of our favorite things to do when we travel is try out a new coffee shop.  I get so excited looking for a new spot before we head to a city.  I always search IG and the internet for options ahead of time so we have some sort of a game plan when we arrive.  Since it’s the first stop of the day we never want to have the search for a latte holding us up when we are ready to get out the door and we also never want to end up at a Starbucks–where’s the fun in that?

My order is always the same though wherever we go: Latte with Skim Milk and Sugar Free (if available) Vanilla.  Sometimes I get it iced and sometimes I get hot depending on my mood, not depending on the weather, haha.  && I will admit, I am drawn to any coffee shop that has marble tables.  Can’t lie!

On our recent weekend trip to Charleston we tried The Rise Coffee bar (seen above) and Black Tap Coffee.  Both were good but our favorite was definitely Rise.  It’s connected to the Restoration Hotel and after seeing the lobby [and the bathroom, haha]–I can tell you that I for sure want to stay there soon.  The vibe is oooh SO good!

I ordered this grey top because I thought it would be great for casual weekend wear and also perfect to throw on over my workout tank with leggings when I’m headed to or from spin class.  Is the back not too cute?!  Also it’s SOO soft.  [wearing a small]

I rounded up a list of our favorite coffee shop in a few cities that we’ve been to recently for you all below (including the city we live in too, of course).  If you have a favorite in a city that isn’t listed will you please do me a favor and send the recommendation my way?  I love to keep an ongoing list!

So very thankful for yet another Friday!  Who’s with me?!

Ethan had a birthday this past weekend and my sister has one this coming Monday so we’ve got some celebrating to do with our families this weekend and I couldn’t be happier.  I am one of those celebrate everything kind of people–every holiday, every little occassion. Love it.  So when it comes to birthdays, I’m all about it! Follow along on IG stories.  I’ll share tid bits of our weekend!

On to this outfit… I got this cross front top recently and yes, yes, yes.  I love!  It’s such a great one to have in your closet becuase it can be worn for so many occassions.  I always like finding a piece that can be worn out on the weekends, on a date night, to a family dinner or during the day and this top is just that.  And bonus.. it comes in at under $50, ships for free and is available in other colors.  [wearing an xs]

I knew I wanted a pair of heels similar to this so when I saw this suede pair I was sold.  I think it’s really important to have a peep toe shoe to wear now and transition into Spring with that doesn’t look too much like a summery sandal.  These have the perfect amount of substance to them so they can still balance an outfit out while allowing you to get away from boots/booties.  They can easily be worn now with jeans and sweaters but will also go well with denim skirts and tops when it warms up! [true to size, wearing a 7.5]

I also want to share exactly what I got from the AHH-MAZE Shopbop sale that’s going on right now!  This is a great time to grab items you want for the season ahead because you can take advantage of a discount on items that usually never go on sale.

Be sure to shop all my picks here!

I finally decided on a couple new pairs of jeans to try!  I knew I wanted another pair of Levi’s for Spring because I love these SO much so I am trying these (love the high rise and straight leg) and I also grabbed these (thinking they will be a great basic pair to have).

I have worn this jacket SO, SO much so I wanted to give this one a try too.  Obsessed with the fit and color!

I’ve wanted this tee forever so I added it to my cart so my total was enough to grab the 20% discount.  Had to, right?!  (I did save over $100 this way though!)

When I saw this top I knew I HAD to have it.  I love it under a moto jacket or paired with jeans and heels for date night.  I really wanted both colors!

What’s in your cart?  Share with me on IG!

&& side note, did anyone else watch Nashville last night?  So.  Many.  Tears.  Goodness gracious!  I think I might need to stick to Real Housewives for a while, ha!

Chenille Cardigan

So after I wore this cardigan ALL weekend I figured that it needed to make an appearance on the blog!  Seriously–I wore it nonstop.  I had it on with this skirt and boots on Friday night for a friends surprise birthday party and then I wore it with jeans and these sneakers on Saturday when we went out to watch the basketball game at a bar and grab sushi after.

I had actually been looking for a longer black cardigan because I know how versatile they can be (especially as the months warm up some) and when I saw this one I knew it was perfect.  It was the material that sold me.  I mean, chenille?!  It feels truly amazing!  [wearing an xs, it does run big FYI]

Oh and these heels?  They are the BEST.  Under $100, can be dressed up or down, and they come in tons of colors.  I love the simplicity of them.

I am definitely beginning to get the Spring bug so get ready to see some warmer weather items on Weeeknd Wishing in the future.  && we’re actually headed to Miami on Friday too so I can’t wait to share that with you all!
