NYC for 34

This trip happened 2 months ago, but I didn't want to forget to post it. When I found out Dan would be traveling for work over my birthday, I asked him if I could meet up with him in NYC. It worked out perfectly for me to meet him for the weekend. On Friday, I flew in early and spent the day alone fabric shopping while Dan worked. I hit Mood Fabrics and B&J Fabrics. I really enjoyed looking at all the fabrics, but just couldn't find anything I wanted or had a vision of something to make.

After fabric shopping, I had extra time to kill so I went to the Museum at FIT. It was really neat and I enjoyed seeing it. It said no cameras, but I snuck a few pictures.

I'm obsessed with  Milk Bar birthday truffles and I went there twice over the entire weekend. I love them so much that Dan even ordered me a box for mothers day! I just found out they have a cook book and hope to get that soon too.

We stayed at 11 Howard in Soho. It was a nice hotel and had a great location. On Saturday, Dan and I shopped around Soho and had Prince St. Pizza.

This is the only picture we took together all weekend.

We spent Saturday evening and Sunday in Brooklyn. We met up with our good friends Cory and Erica for dinner in Brooklyn at Emily
Much like the majority of our trips we ate, drank and shopped through the weekend. It was a fun little getaway!

BOGO Target Shoes

Target has a Buy One, Get One 50% off deal going on right now and so many good shoes to choose from! This deal is for all, but  here are some of my favorite women's shoes.
I already own the ankle rain boots and really love being able to pull them on and off easier than higher ones. They also look exactly like a more expensive J.Crew pair. I also have the silver mules, but in black. I wear them to work quite often. I have the espadrilles and black slides in my cart right now. I'm considering the gold flats because my grandma had a pair exactly like that years ago. :) I also really love the perforated ankle boots and espadrille loafers.  Happy Shopping!

Denver Trip 2018

Every year my family gathers in Denver for my grandmother's birthday at the end of February. This year I decided to take Roman and plan a skiing day with my sister. Unfortunately, my grandmother passed away in January. We decided to make the trip anyway since I have cousins and aunts and uncles that live in Denver.

Roman started a new school 2 weeks before the trip, so I was pretty sure the new germs would cause him to get sick and sure enough he was throwing up the night before the trip. I crossed my fingers for a 24 hour bug and kept our plans. It ended up being a 4 day GI bug, that put a little damper on our trip. Roman did really well flying despite being sick and felt well enough to still have a little fun in Denver.

My cousin Kevin took my sister Meagan and I skiing in Copper Mountain. We both love skiing, even though we are both beginners. After the first run we both got a little sick from the altitude and the cold. It was 10 degrees with a wind chill making it feel like -6. Thankfully, Kevin had backup gear for us. After lunch, a couple shots and the sun coming out we felt much better and had a great afternoon! Turns out I'm a worse skier than I thought. No falls, but I need some practice.

I didn't take very many pictures during the trip since Roman was sick, but I always like to document  our vacations on my blog and refer to them later for the memories!

 Meagan and I got matching ski pants from Amazon. We wanted to look cute together, but honestly we were freezing!

Friday Favorites

It's so hard not to browse and inevitably buy spring clothes in the middle of winter. I have to use restraint every year around this time when all the bright spring clothes are released. I try to limit purchases that I can't wear for another few months, but it's still fun to look! Here are my current favorites.
I'm really obsessed with bold stripes right now, as you can probably tell from my last few posts. I'm in love with this dress from Express and it comes in a romper too! Dying over these Forever 21 pants as well. Round bags are all the rage again this year. I have a wicker one from last year, but would like to have a leather one too! Check out these cute ankle rain boots with the bow! They come in several colors.

Rainbow Bright

I 've always loved bright stripes! I'm loving these color blocked rainbow sweaters right now to brighten up the winter!
By the way, I saw a few of these sweaters in boutiques but they were sold out. I checked Amazon and I found better pricing and some even on Prime. Good tip to always check there too!

Do you follow J.Crew on Instagram? If you don't, go do it right now! Today they have a pre-sale on their new Playa line and the swimsuits are super cute and priced really well! J.Crew one piece swimsuits are usually around the $100 mark, but these are around $50. You have to go through the Instagram link to get to this line, you won't be able to find it on the website. Here are some of my favorites, but they come in many colors and also have a few bikini options.
