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 let the facts begin!

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!

Currently 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.

Hope you enjoyed these random facts about me!

SWEATER Madewell | PINK LEATHER SKIRT ChicWish | BOOTS Steve Madden | BAG Chanel

My pink 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. I found a few other cute pink leather skirts and linked them below! 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 ChicWish. 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. Also tassels , more pink leather and pom poms are always on my list! Can’t wait for the warmer temps to get here! I’m ready for the new season!

COAT old | SCARF Burberry | PUMPS Christian Louboutin | DRESS Michael Stars | BAG Chanel | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker

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! I love wearing winter neutrals and this plaid Burberry scarf really pulls it all together. This dress I actually picked up for spring, but goes well with my other winter neutrals. 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 and this lace skirt I picked up from Chicwish is only $38! It’s a great piece if you need to dress up an outfit. My lace 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.

I have an affinity for anything pink so I have been wearing these hot pink pumps every chance I get. I’m a big fan of Santi clutches I also wore one in this post and this post. I love the fringe on this one and the bright pink color. These pink accessories really pop against my all white outfit. I got this white denim over the winter as it was on major clearance and have worn them on repeat ever since. I’ve never been one to follow the rules like you can’t wear white after Labor Day. Fringe and tassel earrings are also on my radar for Spring and these ones are so cute and come in a few other colors! I’ll definitely be picking up more pink accessories!

The city is covered in snow from the 2017 nor’easter. I love, love, love snow and the city looks so pretty with it. I’m happy we got one last snow fall before Spring. Other than this, it has been a pretty mild winter especially compared with last year.
