Our Favorite Things: Cozy Winter Gear

 

Happy Friday!

This winter has been the season of hunkering down for many New Yorkers. From Sandy to Nemo and to simply just avoiding the bitter cold,

I've certainly gotten the hang of cozying up in my apartment. In the spirit of hunkering down and a nice long weekend and celebrating the fact that fashion week is officially over, here is a list of my favorite cozy winter essentials. 

Have a fabulous weekend!

xo, Stephania

Our Favorite Things: Cute Work Clothes

You know those rare moments in life when everything seems to be falling in place? Almost like you have to pinch yourself to make sure that you're not dreaming because you're actually that happy? Well my life has been feeling like that recently.  Not only do have an adorable puppy, a great apartment, fabulous friends, seeing a guy who never ceases to make me smile, but now I have a job that is pretty much my dream job.  Today I am starting my first day as the assistant photo editor at Daily Candy. Yay! I realized over the weekend, however, that my wardrobe is seriously lacking in the proper office attire department, so I am officially on the hunt for new cute work clothes. Here are a few pieces that I've placed on my shopping list.

our_favorite_things

48682_RD5798_m
Schoolboy Blazer from JCrew
Yes, I know that I already own two pairs of pants, a scarf, ballet flats, and a blouse in the bright orange color, but I really think that I need this blazer. 

dvf_work_dress
Truly Dress from DVF
I adore the clean lines and sophistication of this dress.  I'm picturing myself in a big messy bun with a french braid, stilleto mary janes, and my Mignon Faget stud earrings.

1752249800_1_1_3
Black Blouse from Zara
 
How cute is this top from Zara? I love the applique detail on the shoulders. It's a gorgeous staple with a little something different.

96377_KS3438_m
Contrast Cardigan from Madewell
I
'm a little obsessed with this whole outfit, but I'm especially in love with this cardigan. It comes in a few different color combos and I may just need to get one of each!

Where do you shop for work clothes? What are your favorite staples?

xo,

Stephania

Our Favorite Things: Fall Shopping List

It's official.  Fall is here and now it's time to hit up my favorite shops to update my fall wardrobe.  Here are just a few of my favorites that are on my shopping list.

our_favorite_things

fall_faves_boot_cuffs
Crochet boot cuffs from Lumi Style
I have a teeny tiny boot obsession and am always searching for the perfect socks to wear pulled up with my midcalf Ugg workboots.  These are definitely on my fall shopping list this year!

fall_faves_all_saints
Dune Cape from Allsaints Spitalfields
When I picture the most sophisticated, part-rocker, New York version of myself, I see myself in Allsaints.  Their sharp lines and monochromatic style are flawless and fit perfectly.  I have a black pea coat by them that makes me feel about ten times more of a bad-ass the moment I put it on.  Don't you just love it when a piece can make you feel that way?

fall_faves_dotty_blazer
Dotty Knit Blazer from Anthropologie
I
 realize that what I really need is a practical black blazer to wear, but how can I possibly resist this polka dot blazer from Anthro? After all, I do need something to wear while I walk up and down 5th Avenue in  searching for the black blazer, right?

fall_faves_red_boots
The Zipcode Boot in Suede
I
 am loving this shade of red.  I can think of at least three different outfits where these would work perfectly. 

Have you found any great fall boots?

xo,

Stephania

Weekly Roundup!

TGIF, everybody!

Was this not the longest week? It was for me. Adjusting back to school life has proved to be most trying this time around (senioritis is real?) My roommates and I are still settling into our amazing new house… it’s such an exciting time! Among the five of us there is a vegetarian, a pescatarian, a dairy intolerance, a gluten intolerance, and someone who isn’t fond of veggies. My friend Kathryn claims she has found a recipe meeting all the weird food needs under this roof, so I’m most looking forward to catching up with my friends this weekend over dinner.

What are your plans?

Weekly Roundup!

Happy happy Friday, friends!

I spent this entire week moving to a new house two miles away from my last place. It was unbelievably stressful but now I’m all moved in (well, moved in enough at least) and loving my new place! I hope you all have a relaxing weekend full of cooking and crafting and NO moving, packing, or cleaning.

TGIF!

Our Favorite Things: Lovely Whimsical Finds

Happy Monday! One of the big design techniques that I admire in the lovely Sara Lowman's interior design style is combining the whimsical with clean and simple lines.  Now that my room is almost completely finished (I still have one more photo to hang and shelves to install), I am on the hunt for the perfect little whimsical details to style my apartment (and as an added bonus my wardrobe!).  Here are a few of my favorite whimsical finds that I've pinned for my home.

Stephania

P.S. A special thanks to Sara, for sharing the lovely wallpaper company, Eskayel, on her blog!
