Loving: Black & White

Happy Weekend! I can't say I even minded this week too much because the weather was so nice - the high is 70 today - we definitely need to try to find somewhere to dine al fresco tonight.  We've got a full weekend ahead and lots of family/friends to see at a few different events.

Black and white is always a classic combo and perfect for the season transition.  This off the shoulder top will be perfect for those in between days and this satchel is classic for spring into summer.  I always take out my tassel earrings more often in the warmer weather and it's for sure the season for sunglasses.  My other favorites below... 

Cheers to the weekend! Enjoy! xx

New York Snapshots

Derek has off today so we took advantage of a free weekend and went to New York for a quick overnight over the weekend to see some friends and relax.

vest: similar here / tote: goyard (similar here) / suitcase: delsey spinner 

We got into the city just in time to meet friends at The Sugar Factory for lunch - they have the best (sugary) drinks there.  We tried to go to that new popular Cookie Do (dough) place afterwards and the wait was over an hour long!

We always like to stay at Derek's old hotel when in town so we checked in and then headed off to walk through central park - with no coats since the weather was so nice and do a little shopping.

We went out for a steak dinner and then enjoyed the wood burning fireplace in the room before calling it a night.

Cheers to a new week! xx

Loving: Pom & Tassel

Happy Friday!  Monday will be here before we know it, I'm sure, but for now I'm going to enjoy the excitement of a full weekend ahead.  I haven't quite started my spring clothes shopping yet - but maybe on Monday as I'm sure there will be sales.  I have spent some quiet, cold nights in browsing all the bright, pom, tassel accessories.  You can never start stocking up on them too early as a lot of the good ones always sell out!  We're getting our spring travel schedule together and it's always fun to have some cute accessories in the suitcase.

I'm matchy matchy so I love both the pom necklace and bracelet.  The tassel earrings are another favorite because they'd go with so many outfits - look at all those colors.  This tote and this hat are perfect for a day at the beach.  Now, if spring would just hurry up!!!

Cheers to the weekend! xx

Looks & Life Lately

Family time.  Can spring hurry up already?? I'm loving that each night it's a smidge lighter than the night before but we're still battling the winter laziness over here.

Last Thursday we had our first snow day of the year! We were both home from work, did the classic grilled cheese/tomato soup for lunch and enjoyed the break in the week.

Loving all the fresh flowers and displays that are out and about for Valentine's Day recently - everything is so festive and pretty.

My mom invited us all over and cooked us a delicious meal to celebrate Valentine's Day early - the food was fantastic and she had the table set so cute with a little treat for everyone.

And of course, last night we celebrated - very simply.  Pizza and catching up on our DVR shows - the perfect relaxing Tuesday night.  Chocolate covered strawberries with some more chocolate treats (that were dug into pretty quickly) made their way home with Derek while he got a tower of his favorite beer - simple and easy! We'll probably go out somewhere this weekend but this was a great weeknight treat.  Derek and my stepdad both sent over flowers and I love having the fresh blooms around to brighten up the house.  Of course I had to celebrate my galentine, Stella, with a few new pink toys.
