Rainy Day Wear

October 31, 2012

I hope everyone is drying off from Sandy and things are getting back to normal. We had a lot of rain and wind here but luckily our power stayed on. It has certainly been plenty wet and cold enough to venture out in the rain with my Coach trench coat and warmer boots. After being in sweaters (more on that later in the week ;) and pajamas it's a nice change following some very rainy days!

P.S. Happy Halloween & don't forget to enter my Christina M Boutique giveaway!

Giveaway: Christina M Boutique (Closed)

October 30, 2012

All this rain is making me sleepy... has anyone else fallen victim? Let's brighten things up with a giveaway, shall we! I'm excited to be collaborating with the Etsy shop Christina M Boutique. It's a great source for affordable staple jewelry you'll wear daily. (I'm already eyeing this necklace!)

I have a new addition to my 'arm party' from the lovely Christina and it's going to get a lot of use. I love  chunky gold jewelry dressed up... but also paired with cozy sweaters - which is what I've been living in thanks to Hurricane Sandy.

As a Tuesday treat: Christina is giving one FG reader their own large gold link bracelet! [Above & seen here]

The contest runs from October 30th through November 5th. A winner will be chosen at random.
*All entries will be verified.

Disclosure: Christina M Boutique gifted me the large gold link bracelet.

DC For A Day

October 29, 2012

What was supposed to be a 2 day DC trip turned into 1.... thank you, Sandy.

But, we still had a great time taking little bro and gf Marissa around DC on Saturday. A few highlights: monuments, the White House, Ellipse and Fogo de Chao for dinner. Sunday funday was packed with a walk in the park, watching the Steelers and making pierogies. Family time is the best.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! And stay safe.... I'm back tomorrow with a giveaway!

Friday's Fancies: 100!

October 26, 2012

You know I'm a sucker for a polka dot and pleats so imagine my excitement when I found this Target gem. It's the perfect fall dress that will definitely transition to colder weather with some tights. Target is... on target.... with its clothing selection right now. So many good finds I suggest going running to your nearest store and trying everything on. I did!

*I'm also wearing my party dress to say Happy 100th Friday's Fancies to {AV}! I'm so glad to be part of the fun! (If you want to join the weekly link-up, click here.)

Blue Floral

October 25, 2012

Don't you just love it when an unexpected outfit comes together? Me too! I was going through my summer dresses and realized this floral shirt had the same bold blue. A couple tucks and ties over the dress and I practically have a skirt. Add heels in the same hue and it's a match made in blue-floral heaven!

Bonus: See a more casual way I wore this shirt, here!

I'm also over at DC On Heels today with some fabulous Halloween costume ideas!

Summer Dress to Fall

October 24, 2012

I was just talking to my Sister last weekend about transitioning summer dresses to fall.. something I'm trying to do more of. So, I tried my styling hand at it by using a favorite summer dress (seen here and here) styled with a crisp navy blazer and wedge booties. Moral of the story: I think I need to keep my summer dresses close by.

In My White Tee

October 23, 2012

This weather has been very weird: warm, rainy, chilly... but I'm rollin' with it! Some days just call for a white tee, flared jeans and fall lipstick.

Goodies: Sassy Sweaters

Sassy Sweaters

Ever since I saw this post by Atlantic-Pacific I've been thinking about reinventing the sweater. It's time to think outside the box and get more use out of your sweaters by wearing them in different ways. They can be dressed up with patterned pants and heels or become more weekend casual with rolled up jeans and heels (or sneakers). So effortlessly chic!

What do you think of the dressy sweater look? Will you try it?
