I moved into this apartment in New York City over the summer and although it’s not much larger than a shoe box, I love it. My last apartment was bigger and had an incredible view overlooking the High Line and the Hudson River, but I didn’t like the neighborhood as much as it was really far from a subway (two avenues which is far!) and it was really expensive for what I was paying. This new apartment is in the West Village and close to everything! Subways, the best restaurants, amazing shopping and so many parks. Everything I could need is literally steps away. And as a dog owner it makes my walks more enjoyable to enjoy where I’m walking.

One thing I liked about the apartment was the kitchen. I am renting so I can’t make any modifications, but I love the white cabinets and the white brick back splash. I also love the cut out in the cabinets which is cute for decorating. The views of my apartment are of other brownstones so I put some flowers in the kitchen window sill to cover the view a bit. This apartment definitely is not known for storage, so I have had to get creative (like turning my TV stand into a dresser) but the kitchen is pretty good in that department.

When I was shopping for a table I knew it had to be small so it didn’t stick out too far. This one is 30″ but it also comes in 36″ wide. My table and chairs actually aren’t a set but I think they go nicely together. In my living room which I’ll share soon I have stools that I can pull over if I have extra guests dining with me.

Working from home I cook a lot so I have a pretty well stocked kitchen. I pick up random gadgets all the time from all over the place. But I love this cookware set which is actually on sale right now! I like that it adds a little color to my kitchen. I also love this gold flatware which is super fun for entertaining.

Hope you enjoyed! I’ll have a few more decor posts coming for you!

One of the main reasons why I started Styled American was to connect more with my readers. I originally started It Girl Weddings and wanted a place to talk about fashion, travel and lifestyle. It has been a fun journey and thank you for following along. I hope to inspire you each day! In an effort for you to get to know me better I thought it’d be fun to share 10 random facts about me! So here goes!

I am TERRIBLE with cell phones. I actually have two phone lines so I get a free upgrade at least once a year. I’ve been known to drop them in water, leave them in cabs, put them through the washing machine and crack them to no end. The only thing I don’t like about having my cell phone insurance is that I get refurbished phones that tend to have their own issues. Like an ‘R’ not working or something else devastating. As a blogger, I’m trying to be more careful!!

This leads me to my next point which is that I’m incredibly clumsy! You might have noticed in a few posts that I’ll have a skinned knee or random red mark on my leg, that’s because I’ll miss steps and randomly fall everywhere! It’s super embarrassing!

I love to hum! How weird is this? When I used to drive a car in California I loved to sing in the car, so now when I’m commuting on the subway or walking a long distance I hum until I notice people can hear me. It ranges from a latest hit song to literally “I’ve been working on the railroad..”

I pride myself on being present. Being a blogger and in this age sometimes it’s hard to unplug, but when I’m at lunch or dinner with friends or family I put my phone away and try to be present in the moment.

My background is in real estate. I actually passed the real estate test in California, Arizona and New York. If I wasn’t blogging I’d probably be working at a commercial real estate landlord or brokerage.

I wear extensions. Almost everyday. I love them! I like them for thickness and also a little length. I’ve been getting them from a company out of San Diego and would definitely recommend them!!

Travel is my favorite hobby aside from fashion. The entire world is on my travel list. Again, again and again. I have been to London, Paris and many cities in Italy and would go back any day of the week!

I live in the West Village. I have previously lived in midtown east, the upper west side and Chelsea, but this is my favorite neighborhood! I don’t have the fabulous views I once had but I love that restaurants are steps away and all my friends stop by more often because I’m in a really accessible area.

My favorite food and drink of choice? Food is definitely whole wheat pasta with red sauce or burritos. I’m sort of obsessed with both. I eat one of these almost everyday! And in terms of drinks I typically only drink three things. Water, coffee and wine!

I have lived in four states. I was made in California. Refined in Oregon and Arizona. And captured by New York.

My leather skirt is one of my new favorite skirts as I love wearing pink and leather. It’s a great piece to add a little color to an outfit. My sweater is sold out but I found a similar one by Madewell and linked it above. I am so looking forward to warmer weather and to pull out all my new Spring finds.

I did some online shopping today and picked up a few new pieces for Spring from Chic Wish. Have you guys ever shopped there? They have really cute trendy pieces and always at affordable pricing. I’m definitely adding a lot of stripes and gingham to my Spring wardrobe.

I picked up this scarf last Winter and it still looks brand new. It definitely holds it’s value and comes in so many colors! This dress I actually got for Spring. I love t-shirt dresses all year long. They are so easy to style and just effortless style.

Over the weekend I had brunch at the cutest new restaurant in the West Village called While We Were Young. If you are looking for a great brunch spot you should definitely check this place out. It’s so feminine on the inside and they make the best cocktails! I also went for a walk through Central Park. It’s so pretty seeing the park covered in snow. Last year I took these pictures of a snowy Central Park.

TOP WAFY | SKIRT Chicwish | PUMPS Zendaya | BAG Chanel

All dressed up and somewhere to go! I wore this the other day for a friends party. I love wearing lace on lace. I picked up this lace skirt from Chicwish and it’s only $38! It’s a great piece if you need to dress up an outfit. My top is sold out so I tagged a similar one by the same designer. I love the neckline and lace detail. My red pumps were kind of an impulse buy awhile back and now I wear them all the time! They are super affordable too!

Chicwish is a great place to shop if you are looking for affordable pricing. They have really cute clothes at super discounted prices. I like shopping there when I want a stand out piece that is also high quality. All of the pieces I’ve bought from them hold up and still look like new each time I wear them.
