THE SCARF EVERY GIRL HAS IN NYC

I shot these pics on my girlfriends rooftop. She makes me miss having amenities SO MUCH!! I now live in the West Village and while I LOVE my neighborhood, I miss having amenities. When you live in a shoe box (mine is slightly larger than my size 6 haha), you want more common spaces. I have previously lived on the upper west side and in Chelsea. In Chelsea I was spoiled with views of the Hudson River, the Highligh Park and three rooftop decks with cabanas and GRASS! It even had a 16 person outdoor table that I reserved to host my friends. Now I have nothing, (cue the crying face emoji), no rooftops, no gym, no pool, not even laundry in my building! But I live close to EVERYTHING including some of the best restaurants and things to do in New York so I guess I have to decide whats more important to me ultimately. Just seeing my girlfriends new place made me miss having amenities so much! Can ya’ll relate??

This scarf cracks me up because I see it literally every day in New York! Every girl has this scarf so if you already do please tell me. It is super good quality, super warm and has so many colors in it that it goes with everything!

PINK SWEATER Ralph Lauren | LEGGINGS Plush

Ernie went to heaven on Sunday so I wanted to honor him. He was such a sweet boy and was with me for many apartment moves, he lived in 4 states with me and had many ‘dads’ (ex boyfriends haha). When he was young he loved to chase kitties and play with one toy, his ball. It’s the only toy he ever liked and his sister liked every toy. It was a cheetah print squeaky toy and he loved to parade around with it when he greeted me when I’d come home. He was always on the lazy side.. he loved to sleep and find creative resting places. These pictures make me happy and sad as he lived a great life, but he looked much worse in his final days (I’ll spare you the pictures).

It’s hard to talk about it but on Sunday I made the decision to put my dog down. I read so many articles about when to know when ‘it’s time.’ And every article I read said it’s better to do it one day too soon rather than one day too late. To have them suffer in pain. He was 13, almost blind and deaf, he no longer greeted me when I came home (which killed me, cue the crying emoji), he always had a little selective hearing haha but it just got worse with age. I’d ask him in my high pitched voice “Ernie, do you want to go for a walk?” and he’d have no response. He no longer wanted his ball, couldn’t go up or down stairs and would get disoriented on walks; I’d have to pick him up on walks when he was in the middle of the street and would refuse to walk. He’d run into furniture, stare at walls and sleep all day. Then it got worse. He developed Alopecia and I could tell it really bothered him. His hair started to fall out, his pink skin started to turn black and he’d lick it non-stop. Medicine and extra love didn’t seem to help. His mouth foamed after eating and he’d puke soon after.

I thought.. do I keep him alive for me or let him suffer longer. His joys from his youth he was no longer interested in and I knew it was his time. Deciding to put my dog down was a terrible decision for anyone to have to face, but now he is free from his body that was holding him back and he can now chase kitties in heaven again.

 

PINK FAUX FUR COAT FOR UNDER $35pink coatfaux fur coatpink fuzzy fringe coatfidi park nyc

What do you guys think of this pink faux fur coat? Ya’ll know I love pink so I was super excited when I found this coat. I love how warm it is, how soft it is and the fact that it’s only $35 makes me so happy. I also just ordered this one because I love the fuzzy fringe. My boots are a splurge but I absolutely love them. I get stopped on the street by so many women saying they LOVE my boots and where to get them. I always size up a half size when I purchase boots, I feel like it just makes my life easier to get them on and off, especially with high boots like these. From the day I put them on they are one of the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned, I never had to break them in because they were already so comfortable. In this post I styled another pair of Stuart Weitzman’s I love.

You can’t really see my dress but if you know me well you know I love swing dresses. They are just so easy to style up or down. ASOS has so many great ones and at super affordable prices.

I have been obsessed with She In for awhile now. They have really good quality clothes at such affordable prices. This plaid scarf you need to snag for fall because it’s only $11 and has the cutest plaid print. I always pick up several scarfs for fall and winter and this one is one of my faves. I paired it over this simple swing dress. This dress comes in so many colors so I also got it in a pretty emerald color. I love swing dresses in the fall.

I wanted a whiskey color boot for fall so I was really excited when I found this pair as Sam Edelman is one of my favorite shoe brands and they are a super good price at just $60 bucks. Last year I styled an almost identical pair in this post. I love the color combo of this entire outfit and how the scarf pulls it together.

Today I booked a trip to Montreal with my girlfriends so I’m so excited!! I hope it will be snowing when we are there.

Since Friday was the first official day of fall, I thought it would be fun to round up my top 12 fall outfits on Pinterest from over the years. It’s hard for me to believe that some of these have so many re-pins! I’m linking to a few similar pieces because some of these are over a year old. I would love to know your favorite (let me know in the comments!)
