Cozy as a Teddy

If there’s one piece in my closet from fall I’ve been able to wear into winter and dress up or down it’s this teddy bear jacket. I took a chance and ordered this for a little over sized look and also didn’t want to splurge on something that is just a seasonal fad. I finally found this one from Shein and the quality and warmth is ah-mazing ! I’ve received so many compliments on it and it’s so reasonably priced at $33 right now! 

It also comes in a ton of colors, I went with the true copper teddy bear like color. It’s a golden brown. There’s a bunch of others at similar price points and styles on their site too. I’m 5’10” and this jacket was long in the arms and not too short in the waist. I don’t like anything that cuts into my torso so this length was great. 

I also like this version that is a little longer and more of my usual style for a coat. My denim are an older pair with gold button details but I found some similar pairs that fit this look. I was laughing so hard during these photos because it was freezing up on our roof and super windy for photos but we went with it!  I love looking at the pool on the roof top across the way and still plotting my plan to make my way over there this summer... if summer ever makes it way to the east coast again. 

Hope everyone is ready for the 3 day weekend! We’re doing a little weekend escape to D.C. to visit some family and have dinner planned at my favorite restaurant!

Axe Throwing in Brooklyn

IMG_1215.jpg

Yes, axe throwing! And believe it or not, it wasn’t my first time giving it a try. My brother in law manages Hatchets & Hops, Buffalo’s first axe throwing club. I’ve stopped in a few times to just watch and even throw. I just have to say how fun and entertaining the entire experience is! And it’s catching on! There’s more to be coming to the big Apple soon. It's definitely different and harder than expected, but if you're looking for a group date night or an adult birthday gathering this definitely checks a ton of boxes! We actually first discovered this spot when attending a friends 30th last winter and once we moved to Brooklyn we realized it’s so close to us now. I'm not "axepert" but happy to share the details. I recommend KickAxe Throwing in Brooklyn or Hatchets and Hops in Buffalo, NY. It’s a great indoor winter activity to plan with groups and there’s even a bar and snacks at most locations. 

This night I just dressed casual, comfortable shoes are best but I’d be lieing if I said I’ve never thrown in heels 👠

Love the bright magenta of this oversized cardigan from Express and this is my go camisole top I know I'll be wearing into spring and summer again. It has adorable back detailing and also goes well under leather jackets and blazers. My necklace is from bauble bar and I also found two other great sale finds in the y style here and here.

Ruffled Sleeve Sweater & Fall Sale Booties

My booties are Dolce Vita and currently on sale with the veterans weekend sale taking place and won’t last long! They're less than $90 at Lord & Taylor with an additional 20% off!

 They fit true to size, and do take some time breaking in for the fact they’re a pointy toe. However, totally worth it because the suede pairs perfectly with skirts and dresses for a casual look. I do have narrow feet so maybe not as comfortable for wide width feet. 

I found this Cynthia Rowley sweater at TJ Max and it also would work well for tucking into a skirt since it’s not super long in length like I usually wear my sweaters. I've been shopping online and it's less overwhelming than going through the craziness of racks and those long lines. Has anyone else tried this yet? 

This sweater is a super soft turtle neck and not itchy at all ! I’ve linked very similar styles that would pair well with pants or skirts. My leopard print clutch is a leather version from Italy and folds over. I'm listing similar finds at different price points below. 

Happy fall sales weekend! Nordstrom's weekend sale ends this evening so check it out while it's on, they're price matching and many styles are on sale up to 40% off.
