Winter Wear

Sweater: Express sold out similar style I like (on sale!)/  Leggings: Zella \ Boots: Stuart Weitzman Sunglasses: Loving this option and this option /  Beanie   On sale for under $10!

Kicking off 2018 in some brights in the snow! When I was upstate visiting family it was so special to see just how much snow my hometown received, it was a white Christmas! Fast forward a few weeks and by mid January I am ready for a warm weather escape and dreaming of palm trees. I have been a little more playful with mixing prints and I've had this beanie for a while and it's an easy way to make a statement with having everything else simple and understated. It's been on sale for quite some time too!

I love this slouchy and over size sweater since it's long enough for leggings and can be styled off the shoulder. I loved the color so much I even got it in a cardigan style- perfect for a pop of color during the winter blues and to wear in February with Valentine's Day upon us next month. Express is constantly having sales and my go to for sweaters and denim lately. I also love the online size option for tall pants, since I'm 5'10" I've always struggled to find pants that fit and are long enough! Theirs are at great price points and have become a better quality. I have some with embellishments, frayed hems, and the black skinny pants I've been over wearing to work too. 

 

There's tons of scarves on sale and I love the bright plaid, I picked mine up from TJ Maxx and it's super warm. I like the blanket scarves because they’re so versatile when styling and perfect for traveling with. I always bring one on the airplane. 

Hope everyone is having a healthy and productive start to 2018!

Sunrise Mornings

While staying at the Wild Dunes Resort we had a beautiful private beach in the back yard that was so quiet and peaceful most times of day. It has been a very long time since I've woken up to catch a beach sunrise so this was the perfect opportunity and place to enjoy one! I highly recommend Isle of Palms for your next beach vacation. It's a few miles long and super clean. It wasn't crowded at all while we were there and was just a short drive to downtown Charleston where you can cross the most beautiful bridge to get there. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect balance of beach life relaxation and downtown dining to explore. I'll definitely be back!

This one piece and coverup were perfect for a cooler morning. Mine is Trina Turk and I've linked many others below!

Travel Essentials

For as much as I have traveled I still am mastering the art of packing light with versatile items. (I'm notorious for over packing, which can also make it difficult to choose outfits once on the trip if there's too many options.) I'm working toward using the "less is more" approach, well trying at least! For vacation travel I started with some simple items that can be worn on a traveling day and throughout the trip in different ways . It's always tricky going from cooler to warm climates so I find layers are best for chilly airports. 

I'll be styling some of the basics below in upcoming posts as I get ready to jet set to Vegas! This is a super spontaneous trip and I can't wait to get out of the New York cold and slow my pace for some sunshine.  I've never been to Las Vegas, any suggestions for restaurants, shows, or activities will be much appreciated if you could comment below!
