New York City Girl.

It is so crazy to me that in one month I will celebrate my 3 year anniversary as a "New York City Girl."  WOW, how time fly's.  It feels like just yesterday I was dropped off in LES fresh out of college with 2 suitcases and the rest to figure out.  What was I thinking? I still look back to that day and picture myself sitting on the sidewalk looking so lost and out of place with my suitcases larger than me trying to get a hold of my college girlfriend and roomie-to-be, Kristen Malone who I was suppose to be staying with until we found an apartment together.

I could obviously go on forever telling stories about all of the life lessons New York City has taught me and how much I have grown as a person, but I won't bored you with that. Instead, I thought I would post a few images that I found on pinterest that spoke to me(inspirational and funny) about my amazing experience I've had these past 3 years becoming a "New York City Girl." Move over Manhattan!

Book of the Week: Kate Spade: "Things We Love."

With all my excitement about Kate Spades new book release, "Things We Love."  I made it a mission of mine hunt down a copy in NYC a few weeks ago- in fact I purchased the last copy in store at Barnes and Noble in Union Square.
Yes, I could have waited and ordered it online; but when I make up my mind that I want something; You better believe I figured out a way to get it. Plus, I knew I couldn't wait a week for it to ship. (If your smart however, you will purchase it online and save yourself a trip to the ​bookstore and $10.)

Talk about pages and pages of charming and colorful inspiration! From funny and quirky quotes, bold patterns, beautiful type, and images that could make anyone happy. I could seriously go to town with a pair of scissors to the pages of this book, just so I could frame every page and hang them all on my wall. Luckily the beautifully done gold page edges are keeping me away-- for the time being that is. ;) 

***Each chapter is based on things that they love...And I happen to love all of these things too...

...Like, A Well-Placed Bow...
(See my "Tied With A Bow" Outfit Post here.)
...And, New York City...


...And, A Pop Of Color...
(See my "Pop of Color" Outfit Post here.)

...And, Cocktails...
...And, Honest Words from Great American Writers.

...And, Words of Wisdom from Great Designers.

As a proud new owner of this colorful book of pure happiness and I would highly recommend making this your next addition to your bookshelf.  It is a true celebration of the Kate Spade brand and pure girliness at its finest. Whats not to love...?

Spring Style: A Turquoise Statement.

Warm sunshine and 75 degree weather just happened in NYC!!  Finally, I can bust out my spring wardrobe I've been impatiently waiting to wear. My favorite thing about spring fashion is color and accessorizing. And no color says spring to me more than the color turquoise. My personal favorite way to make a statement and to incorporate this color is adding a turquoise accessory- it seriously makes every outfit! Here are a few of my favorites.

Lulu Frost: Bangle Set 2 - $209.

(Worn in an earlier post here).

Christina Greene: Turquoise Cuff - $60.
