Life Lately...March 2015

Finally after 9 months, 2 injuries, a couple vacations & lots of complaining I finally hit 100 Pure Barre classes. To say I'm obsessed is an understatement. If you have a studio near you I highly recommend trying it. Worried about not being able to do the workout? Don't be, the instructors are extremely helpful and since it's super low impact no matter what your athletic ability you'll be able to do it! Can't stop laughing at this 100 Thoughts I Have During Pure Barre list! SO accurate!

Got to see one of my best friends from college in Jersey Boys on Broadway this month! He's playing Joey until mid-April, if you happen to be going make sure to give him an extra loud round of applause during his bow at the end!

I'm pretty sure I've been gravitating towards beautiful flowers this month because I'm desperate for the nicer weather to come. For now I'll just fill my house with bouquets & snap photos of colorful arrangements at events.

18K Prosecco...this bottle is so pretty I just want to put it on our bar and stare at it! I'm going to need something to celebrate to pop this one open!

Live in the Tri-State NY area? Put The Parlor in Dobbs Ferry, NY on your must visit list! Wood fire pizza made with local ingredients & crazy combinations! My suggestions...the fried brussel sprout & rice crispies appetizer & the lemon pizza...just trust me!

I finally made it down to visit one of my best friends in Raleigh, North Carolina this month and I'm so glad I did. I've never actually visited NC (only drove through on the way to Florida) and it's so charming. Old Raleigh & Chapel Hill are literally picturesque. I'm starting to understand the appeal of moving south! Even more than that I'm starting to realize how I really need to make it a point to take more weekend trips. I'm having seriously cabin fever lately & I'm embarrassed to say how many times a day I check Expedia for vacation packages.

Until next month...

Still dying over the fact that I got to play dress up at Kleinfeld this month! If you missed the post you're definitely going to want to take a couple minutes to scroll through it.

I did a little bit of warm weather shopping so that when it does finally come I'm ready for it! I picked up this party dress, this casual striped dress, this clutch & this off the shoulder top this month!

I've been a magazine junkie this month & when I'm flipping through them I always snap photos with my phone of things I like so the next time I'm on the computer I can check them out & I was scrolling through the photos I've saved over the past 2 months and 90% of them are of bright blue & green items.

Loved all the beauty inspiration I got from NYFW, but the look Nanette Lepore created was hands down my favorite! Don't miss how I recreated the bold runway look & made it appropriate for everyday wear!

I'm doing a hardcore closet cleaning out right now & have listed a TON of items on both Bib + Tuck & Poshmark! All prices are negotiable & I'm willing to bundle items at a discount!

Looking for more inspiration. Check out my February Fashion & Beauty Round Up!

I spoke too soon when I said that this post would hopefully be the last one wearing my winter coat, on the bright side at least the snow melted & I'm not wearing this! This crop top/flare jean combo has really been a go-to this month for me, I think I've worn this exact look at least 4 times & these jeans paired with a sweater another 3 times. As for this coat, since Mother Nature doesn't like NY very much right now, I can honestly say I've worn it every single day this month. It was the best end of Winter sale purchase I could have made! Here's to hoping April's Go-To Look will consist of bare legs & bright colors!

Make sure to check out Taylor & Tracy's blog for the details on their looks!

Obsession: Bright Blues

I know last week I was craving greens, but as of late bright blue is all I can think about. I don't know if anyone else does this, but as I'm flipping through magazines I always snap photos with my phone of things I like so the next time I'm on the computer I can check them out & I was scrolling through the photos I've saved over the past 2 months and 90% of them are of blue pieces! A lot of people shy away from bold colors, but for some reason blue seems less intimidating than the rest and works with every single skin tone & color! For me bright blue is the ultimate shade for Spring & Summer.

Are you lusting over all of the bright blue that is making it's way into stores?

It's officially Spring & there's still snow on the ground! All the nice weather we were having was just a tease and all Spring brought on Friday was 6 inches of snow and 30 degree weather. Lucky for me I was away this weekend in North Carolina & missed the freak snow storm, but I didn't quite figure out how to bring the warm temperatures back with me. I guess the only flowers I'll be seeing for a while are the ones on my dress. PS if you catch me complaining about the heat this summer just smack me!

While it's not quite no coat weather yet, it is definitely light coat weather (just ignore all the snow, it was around 50 degrees the day I took these photos & a majority of it has finally melted!), and this bright white coat is just what the doctor ordered. I don't work in a traditional office setting with a dress code (I could literally wear yoga pants to work & I'm ashamed to say sometimes I do), but if I did I would imagine I would rarely be seen in your typical work wear & more likely to been wearing something with a kick! Tailored printed pants, a silky blouse & structured jacket are perfect for the office & even more perfect for happy hour drinks after!

Room for Style: Decorating | Let's Get Down To Business

Let's get down to business...and by business I mean office space!

Your office space should be a place where you like to work...
Chic Office Ideas | Home Decor | #LivingAfterMidnite
This is a young, hip work area in a small space! Perfect if you don't have an extra room to turn into an office. A corner of a room is perfect ((especially if it has great lighting like this!))

Chic Office Ideas | Home Decor | #LivingAfterMidnite
You don't have to forfeit style for function! Who wouldn't love to work all day in a comfy ((not to mention easy on the eye)) chair like that?

Chic Office Ideas | Home Decor | #LivingAfterMidnite
Now you know this is a designer's work space! Love that she turned her vision boards into art by placing a large pin board on one of the walls! Perfect for tacking up your latest inspiration like paint colors, fabric swatches & magazine pages!

Chic Office Ideas | Home Decor | #LivingAfterMidnite
Seriously low on space? You don't need much to make something great! Look at all the desk space they gained by adding 2 shelves!

Just remember when creating your own work space, whether it be at home or at an office, make it a space that functions for you & your style! There's no need to compromise - especially considering the amount of time you'll be spending there (and the great projects that will come out of there!)
