outfit of the day - all over urban

As the last days of the cold weather until NEXT winter are (hopefully) beginning to dwindle, I'm getting the best of my boots while I still can!

I was really excited to rock this outfit at work today because a lot of these items I haven't worn in a while.

This is one of those combinations that I purchased together to wear together - the sweater, the skirt and the scarf.

It's also worth noting that all of these items are from Urban Outfitters.

I've previously paired these three items with grey tights and black heels, but today I was going for a more casual look.

Shirt, Skirt, and Scarf: Urban Outfitters//Leggings: American Apparel//Boots: Ciao Bella
Nails: Essie Mint Candy Apple and Carnival

Unlinked items are old.

I'm sure you're all thinking to yourself "Does she ever wear any other jewelry besides that Michael Kors watch?"

I do, I promise.

It's just so timeless!

Are you guys excited to ditch your boots and leggings once and for all?

And what did you guys wear today?

winter woes

Last time I checked, didn't the Groundhog say spring was coming soon? Apparently he's a liar. To anyone else here in NY you know exactly what I'm talking about. THIS was not a pleasent thing to wake up to on this lovely March morning:

Thanks, but no thanks. Also, my train getting in to the city 20 minutes late was not a nice start to my day. I was really in the mood for spring too. St. Patrick's Day is next weekend (which I'm SO excited about!) and I even painted my nails last night in the spirit of spring:

{Essie Navigate Her and Good as Gold}
Not necessarily well (self painted nails is not my strong suit) but I tried! What are your feelings on the accent nail? I've been a huge fan of the ring finger accent nail for a while but lately I've been trying out the pinky, and am enjoying it!

Hopefully this is the end of snow until next season. I don't think I can take much more!

At least it's the weekend. Happy Friday!

spring nail trends 2013

When it comes to following trends, I definitely like to take whats hot at the moment and mix it in with my usual style. I don't like to follow things blindly (For instance, apparently short suits are in this season? Thanks but no thanks.) However, when it comes to the hot nail colors, while I definitely have my staples (Just like every other girl on Long Island) I'm always willing to at least give the new trends a try! Here's what's looking hot this season that I'm most excited about:

 Pastels {Zoya, Butter, Essie}

Pastels are ALWAYS a staple of the spring, and that goes even more so this season! Besides adding little additions into my wardrobe, I'm so excited to rock some of these colors on my hands!

Nudes are always a staple but with the apparent death of nail art they are back this season in a big way, but with some twists with some tans, cocoas, and metallic finishes. 

To help ease everyone in from winter to spring, instead of breaking out the bright red start with a coral!

I'm really excited to try out all of these colors in the next few months! What spring nail colors are you most excited about?

Here it goes..

I'm not sure what compelled me to start a blog, and I'm not sure if I'll ever even make it public. For now it's an experiment to see if a) I can keep this up, since I tend to quit a lot of projects I try and b) if I'm any good at this blogging thing.

I'm going to start this off with three things. I'm good at lists, it keeps my thoughts and my days organized. Otherwise this post (and the rest of my life) would fall into anarchy. 

  • I get a lot of manicures and pedicures with work, call it spoiled but it is a fantastic perk I am more than willing to embrace. This color is Essie Lady Like, and apparently my grandmother is also a fan and currently sporting the color. I like to think style is hereditary. 
  • I love this watch. MK is classic, and there is nothing more to say about that. When I'm rich I'll by like 10 more in different colors and styles.
  • I love doing yoga, which has proven to be difficult as I never seem to have time to get my butt to a studio so sometimes I try to create a makeshift studio in my basement by creating a nice ambiance and my All-In Yoga iPhone app, which creates programs and even lets me make my own.
That's it for post attempt once, until next time.
