Spring Cleaning

IMG_8132

As a New Yorker, you get to experience all the seasons in one week this time of year. This week, I’ve worn a sweater, jacket, boots, and open toe shoes all in one week. Wearing this jacket from  ZARA is the perfect item to wear when the weather is so confusing.  I spent the previous weekend putting away all my sweaters and winter clothing. I’m so ready for summer but right now New York is still undecided. Today was 60 degrees and in two days, its forecasted for 90 degrees!! I can’t take it!

Stripes and Ruffles

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_a7

I am totally loving the stripes and ruffles trend. The more the ruffles the better! But honestly, every time I tried one of those shirts on, I looked like a clown.  How do some of the girls pull off the look and not me? No big deal…I found this more tamed look at Express at a reasonable price. Click on the links below for outfit details…..

Reflecting in Paradise

IMG_7259

I’m not one who commits to my new years resolutions but something different happened in 2016.  This year I promised myself to step out of my shell and try something new.  This year I was turning 40 years old and I started to reflect on my life. Although I have soo many things I’m proud of there still another 40+ years of life I want to live that’s a bit different from what I’m used to.  I’m usually shy and the last person to seek attention. So how do you start behaving the opposite of that? Start a blog and post many many pictures of yourself! Of course!  So now its December and as I spend a few days in La Romana, Dominican Republic, I can’t believe how much I’ve grown and changed.  The beautiful setting in paradise was the perfect place for me to be in and reflect on this year as it ends. What I’ve learned is that no one cares if you jump, scream, dance, sing….etc… seriously…just live your life. Do what ever it is that will put a smile on your face and makes you feel good about yourself.

Florals For Fall

I have to admit, I’m not big on wearing prints.  Loud colors and florals are not my thing. But when I saw this dress on the Banana Republic website, I fell in love.  The bonus features for me, are that it comes in Petite and it has Pocket!!  It’s been raining here in NYC, but I managed to beat the rain this
