Super Bowl Outfit: Plaid & Denim

Like most people around the country, I headed to a Super Bowl party yesterday.  I was completely apathetic about both teams and it’s purely chance that my Super Bowl outfit had the colors of the winning Seattle Seahawks.  If the Steelers aren’t in the Super Bowl, I will typically just pull for the team with the least amount of rings so no one challenges the Steelers 6 championship rings record.  I initially was going to wear black, coated skinny jeans with a blouse and statement necklace, but it felt a little too dressy for the occasion.  So, I opted for a simple plaid shirt I found at Target and a pair of skinny jeans I haven’t been able to fit into for over a year!  Thanks to the master cleanse and Dietbet, I’m back in my Tory Burch zipper jeans!

It was a surprisingly balmy day of temps close to 70 degrees.  It was hard to believe Snowmegeddon of Atlanta was just five days prior.

It is still hard for me to wear flats with skinny jeans.  Being a petite and curvy girl, I always feel the need to wear high heels to elongate my silhouette.  These nude color (nude for my complexion) pumps from Aldo are pretty comfortable.

Of course, I still had to glam up the outfit with a chunky necklace and some fun bracelets.  What did you wear for your Super Bowl party?

I was wearing…

Top: Target. Jeans: Tory Burch. Pumps: Aldo. Belt: Tory Burch. Necklace: Vince Camuto. Earrings: Tory Burch.  Watch: Michele. Bracelets: Topshop & Fab’rik.

New Year’s Eve Celebration

There’s nothing like celebrating New Year’s Eve than with good friends, salsa dancing, and of course….booze!  My husband and I met up with three other couples at Loca Luna.  It’s a quaint little salsa spot in Amsterdam Walk in Midtown.  I was happy to have somewhere to wear a sparkly dress and dance all night.

A picture of us ladies all gussied up in our party dresses.  I found this  black dress with a gorgeous sequin Aztec-pattern down the front at Fab’rik.  I love the sexy mesh cut-outs on the side (although it did give me some side boob action…lol).  It was a cold night so I paired it with opaque tights and booties.   

New Year's Eve

The best part about the evening was bringing in the new year with my handsome husband!  Doesn’t he look so dapper?

How did you celebrate the new year?

Dress: Fab’rik. Tights: Target. Booties: BCBG Max Azria. Earrings: H&M. Cuff: Tory Burch.

What I Wore: Honeymoon Maxi Dress

I had the great pleasure of celebrating my first wedding anniversary this weekend!  I was feeling nostalgic and wore a Fab’rik maxi dress I had not worn since returning home from our honeymoon.  We traveled to Phuket Thailand, Singapore, and Tokyo and it was very tropical during that time of the year.  I packed a lot of light and flowy dress to prepare for the heat.  I love the bold pattern and bright colors of the dress.  It’s just so uplifting and I will forever have happy memories every time I wear it.

Phuket, Thailand was absolutely gorgeous.  Here we are at Phi Phi island where the Leonardo DiCaprio movie “The Beach” was filmed.  Pictures just don’t do this place justice.

We stayed at the Trisara resort in Phuket which is absolutely spectacular.  This was the view from our private villa and infinity pool. It was really hard to leave this place.

We started our anniversary on a positive note by attending church.  We came home and relaxed before heading out to a scrumptious dinner at The Optimist.  If you love seafood, definitely check this place out.  It took me the longest time to decide what to get because their menu is packed with so many different varieties of fresh fish.  We loved everything we ate and the service was great!

When we came home we popped some champagne and attempted to eat the top of our wedding cake as tradition dictates.  It surprisingly tasted okay but neither one of us could get over the idea of eating a one year old piece of cake.

Here’s to one year down and many years of marriage to come!

What I Wore: Surprise Birthday Getaway

My birthday was on Sunday! I really had no idea what my husband was planning for my birthday, if anything, so in true type A fashion I made tentative dinner reservations and a ladies brunch on Sunday.  Friday night my husband asks me what I’m doing Saturday.  I had nothing planned other than my usual workout so, when I returned home that morning he said “You should get dressed. Oh, and pack whatever you’re going to wear tomorrow”. WHAT?!?! I was so excited.  We headed out into Atlanta traffic to an unidentified location.

My husband is the best at keeping secrets so after an hour in the car with still no clue where we were going, I started mapping out possibilities.  I know I’m hopelessly type A. After almost two hours we arrived at…..

Callaway Gardens is a beautiful resort just outside of Pine Mountain, GA.  It has acres of lush gardens, lakes and a beach.  They offer a variety of activities including hiking, water sports, zipline, golf, and spa.  We settled in and started exploring the grounds.

We arrived just in time to watch a predatory birds show featuring this owl, a hawk, and a vulture! The birds were literally flying right over our heads.  My husband caught a nice breeze as one of them wizzed by his ear.

We made some new friends of nature…

After burning lots of calories hiking the grounds, it was time for a delicious meal.

What I Wore: NYC Day Two

Welcome to my second installment of NYC Mother’s Day weekend! Our morning started off in Tribeca where we had a scrumptious breakfast.

image

image

We enjoyed our breakfast at this quaint little restaurant called Kitchenette.  It was so warm and homey giving you the feeling of stepping into your grandmother’s kitchen with sweet smells swirling in the air!

image

image

Cookies and cakes galore!

image

Red velevet pancakes! Eat your heart out!

image

My girl Michele dropped by to join us for breakfast :-)

image

After our meal, Mom went to a salon next door for a manicure and I took the opportunity to burn some calories and explore Tribeca.

image

I came across an adorable farmers market with all sorts of goodies.

image

We left Tribeca and headed to the Soho area for some vintage shopping.  I was so excited to visit one of Rachel Zoe’s favorite shops Resurrection! It was filled with one of a kind vintage pieces from Missoni, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, McQueen and more.  Unfortunately, I don’t have Rachel Zoe’s budget so none of these beauties came home with me. Next time ;-)

image

A little pit stop through Times Square on our way back to the hotel.

We ended our night at a restaurant of famed chef, Marcus Samuelsson, called the Red Rooster.  It is located right in the heart of Harlem so I wanted to go ultra vintage glam with a beaded headpiece and red lips.

image

That’s me impatiently awaiting my drink.

What I Wore: All the Pretty Birds

Apparently, Atlanta has not received the memo that it is Spring.  The last few days have been cold and accompanied with rain and occasional thunderstorms.  We lost power in our house on Saturday three times!!! Not cool.  Sunday was cinco de mayo, as many of you know, and I was so hoping we would get a break in the weather so I could wear something bright and cute while sipping a margarita on a patio somewhere.  No luck. The weather was a tad bit warmer and the sun peeped out for a few hours so I jumped at the chance to wear something that slightly resembled spring.  I decided to wear my comfy boyfriend jeans and a beautiful bird top from Fab’rik.  I love the color combo of lilac and green (bonus the lilac perfectly matched my manicure) and the unexpected peek-a-boo action in the back.  It stormed again last night and today is another cool and dreary day.  As we residents of Atlanta await for warm weather with bated breath, our spring clothes remain trapped in the closet.  So, until I can post my real spring outfits, enjoy this top I refer to as All the Pretty Birds!
