Disco Inferno: 2018

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share my outfit for New Year’s Eve this year! A while ago I did a promotion with Smith Haven mall out in Long Island, and found this gorgeous sparkly jumpsuit while I was with my grandlittle, Shayna .

2017 was filled with a lot of challenges, but also lots of new friends, and I’m really excited for 2018. I don’t usually make resolutions (because I’m terrible at keeping them) but I read this article in Elle that made me resolve to think less about myself (positively or negatively) in 2018.

Anyway, here is my NYE outfit!

Happy New Year!

Sweater Weather: OOTD

Hi everyone! Wanted to share a quick OOTD (and the first post of 2018!) during this freezing beginning to our New York winter. My aunt got me this cute Zara collar for Christmas and my mom got me this adorable white Ralph Lauren sweater dress! I paired it with a Céline Micro luggage and wool beret, with Mac’s Ruby Woo lip color.

I’ll post my NYE outfit of the day tomorrow, but until then, Happy New Year!

OOTD: Blue Christmas

Hi everyone!! Just wanted to do a quick outfit of the day post after the gorgeous snow day yesterday! I just finished my first final and was so excited to have woken up to snow the next morning.  I paired a Ted Baker coat with a JCrew striped shirt, my black Hunters, sparkling leggings from F21, and Mac Ruby Woo lipstick for my snowy day look! I topped it off with a fluffy hat I bought at Marshall’s. Happy snow day, NYC!

Jord Watch Contest!

Hi everyone!

I have a super exciting opportunity for one reader to win $100 gift card to JORD watches! I decided to partner with JORD around the holiday season because the watches would be a perfect gift. The watches are neutral, classic, and match everything, and so they are versatile to wear with any outfit! They also can be gifted to people of all different styles; I know bloggers whose styles range from girly to boho, and the watches pair perfectly with all of their outfit posts.

My watch of choice, pictured, is the Koa & Burl watch and it retails for $139. The gift card would make that only $39! The watch can be found here: https://www.woodwatches.com/series/fieldcrest/koa-and-burl. It’s listed as a men’s and women’s watch, and I love how these pieces can be worn in a gender-neutral way with soft earth tones. The men’s selection is gorgeous and classic, and is the perfect gift for your boyfriend, brother, or any other guy in your life! Some watches range a little more delicate in the women’s selection, with even a rose gold toned watch.

The really exciting part of this contest is that even when the contest closes on November 19, absolutely everyone who has entered the contest will win a $25 gift card! So it’s really a win-win to sign up, because there’s no commitment to entering. I really hope you guys sign up and check out the gorgeous watches on the site!

Hi everyone!! Dropping in to quickly share an outfit of the day in the West Village! I love this high-neckline floral dress complete with all my favorite fall colors. I paired it with a Dior choker and some light pink sunnies as we (slowly) transition from summer to fall. I love the subtle bell sleeve as well! Now, back to studying…

University Bracelets with Kyle Cavan

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share with you my new bracelet featuring the Low Memorial Library at Columbia University! I’ve always loved class rings, university merchandise, and other things that I could look back at and remember my time at the university, but I usually opt out of the chunky 1980’s style, fake-stoned class rings usually sold at university bookstores. I’ve always wanted to find something that I could wear forever, something classy and subtle, to show my pride for the school. Kyle Cavan makes fine jewelry (gold-plated, sterling silver, and solid gold on request) featuring universities like Yale, Brown, Penn, Duke, and so many more. The Columbia University Iconic bracelet is my personal favorite, but there are cuff links, a gorgeous necklace, and an Hermes style bracelet.

As you can imagine, when Kyle Cavan reached out to me, I was so excited to partner because they made a product that captured everything I wanted out of university merchandise: something academic and chic that will match everything. They gave me a code for my lovely followers: BV2017 will get you free engraving! It’s perfect for a graduation or Christmas gift for an upcoming senior, a self-splurge as an excited freshman, a gift for your little, an alum, or for anyone super excited about their school! You can find the link here!

Summer Stripes

Hi everyone!!

I hope everyone had an amazing fourth! Just wanted to a do a quick outfit post because I’m really into these romper dress things lately!!

Mamma Ía!

Hi everyone!!

While I’m writing from NY right now, I just got back from Santorini!! It was so incredibly gorgeous and the people are super nice and welcoming. I was inspired by the gorgeous colors of the terrain in choosing my outfits, as well as by the locally designed clothes on the island (pom poms and tassels for Summer 2017? Groundbreaking). I got the dress from TJ Maxx, aka the same dress literally everyone has this summer. I decided to make it more my own with these super fun earrings, which I totally bought to look like Madeline in Big Little Lies (ok. Maybe this look isn’t that original SUE ME).

Après-Midi

I love this simple Kate Spade dress with the two bows in the back for my NYU graduation! I paired it with a statement necklace (Forever 21!) and a hot pink kate spade bag to brighten up the look. I love midi dresses and think they’re perfect for summer.
