Ch-Ch-Changes

This past Monday was a life changing experience for me. For some it wouldn’t have been that dramatic, but trying to keep your apartment was a big deal to me. After a successful meeting with the landlord, I can now breathe easy and enjoy the holidays. To make it even better, the weather was a high of 70 degrees! You know what that means? Open toe shoes! Yes I went as far as looking like I was cut out of a Resort 2015 ad! A button down safari shirt, denim skirt, camouflage sandals and sunglasses that scream I’m ready for a vacation! After all this I think it’s time for one, so even if I couldn’t book a trip, I had to dress the part. For now,  I’m just happy to be spending Thanksgiving with my parents in their new home.

How will you spending Thanksgiving this year?
Any vacation plans in 2015?

Have a wonderful and grateful Thanksgiving weekend!

Not Your Average Slit

I’ve always been a fan of side slits, high or lower slits, but I’ve never really seen a middle slit until I found this skirt. Although I’m not a fan of culottes,  the slit gives the illusion of shorts which if they were culottes I would probably pull it off the same way. I love to pair denim with white tees, tanks or a crisp white button down. It allows you to pair anything on your feet; heels, flats, flat sandals or even sneakers. I chose to add leopard booties for height (a must for knee-length skirts) and this mysterious red lip as my first (makeup) dose of Fall.

You know Summer is over when it’s time for New York Fashion Week

Have you pulled out your Fall booties? How high do you slit?
