Hello hello, and yay… we made it to Friday! I’m feeling ready for the weekend. I have a pretty full day of meetings and then a “me night” tonight. Thinking of either… watching all of the TV while devouring an entire bag of Skinny Pop (my fav snack lately, ha ha) or going to see La La Land. Everyone I know has seen it and I am feeling a little left out – it sounds so incredible! I’m really looking forward to a peaceful weekend. I have a few workouts planned and a movie date with my best friend tomorrow and… that’s it. A nice, blissfully empty weekend.
I did something a little bit crazy this week. Okay, not crazy but a little impulsive. I booked a trip to Europe in mid-February! My friend Stanley is the master of finding inexpensive flights (my round-trip ticket was $400!!) and he was already visiting our friends in Belfast so I decided to go too! I don’t always take advantage of the fact that I can more or less do my work from anywhere and I can. not. wait. We are starting in Copenhagen (for whatever reason, flying to Copenhagen seems to be the secret to traveling inexpensively… tickets out of NYC are cheap and then you can just get $50 flights within Europe to whatever cities you want to go to).
From Copenhagen, we will head to Belfast together and stay with our friend Aly and her family there for five nights…. then I will head to London and Paris (two nights in each) and then then fly home! I am so excited. I am lucky in that I get to travel a lot for the blog but it’s been a while since I went anywhere “just for fun.” Of course I will be writing about the trip and taking photos but I’m excited for time in all four cities to explore on my own schedule and just spend time with my friends. Aly and her husband have three little boys and they are the cutest – and getting so big!!
Outfit Details: J.Crew Coat (4 years old but this, this, this, and this are all just as classic + similar) // Clare V Clutch // AEO Scarf (sold out but obsessed with this one) // LOFT Dress (40% off!) // Express Tights // BP Trolley Boots // Celine Sunglasses
I get asked about tights a lot for some reason, and I tell everyone that Express tights are the best out there. Better than Wolford, better than anything…. and also really affordable. They’re super thick and opaque and while I don’t think you are supposed to, I put them in the dryer and they’re fine.
You need this dress. Okay, maybe need is too strong of a word, but it’s such a good one. Cozy, comfy, flattering, and warm! It’s a great price (presently 40% off, no code needed) and if they made it in more colors I would be all over it.
