Happy Monday! Today’s outfit post is like any other, with one exception: I’m also relaunching my Youtube Channel! We talked about this a little bit last week as I have been working on a series of videos, with the goal of having a new one up for you every other week. Video is such a fun way to get to know you guys a little bit and show you things as opposed to telling… but please bear with the awkwardness. I laugh a little at my wandering eyes (note: look at the camera!!!) All the same, this video was SO much fun to film. My friend Krystal had suggested spoofing Vogue’s (now iconic/one of my personal favorite things to watch) 73 Questions series, and that is what we did. I hope you enjoy – and appreciate the humor/ignore how awkward I am in parts of it. Someday I will learn to look AT the camera as opposed to (in most cases) following where my cat is running off to. Anyway, we had the best time, so I hope this is fun for you to watch. Also, Bobby is the greatest… if you are a blogger or brand and looking for someone to help you film your videos, he is really just awesome. (Thanks for indulging me on this one, Bobby!)

As I mentioned before, Youtube is becoming a big priority for this blog so I hope you will consider subscribing to my channel! Next up (in two weeks) we will be tackling my favorite highlighters – there will be lots and lots of beauty stuff in particular to come.

Outfit Details: J.Crew Peplum Top (I’m wearing a size small – tall) // 7 for All Mankind Jeans (also here, here, and here) // Gucci Purse // Manolo Blahnik Pumps // Celine Sunglasses

I hope you enjoyed the video! Also if you have things you want to see in future videos, definitely let me know in the comments section.

As far as this outfit goes I will just say that I am so happy J.Crew is doing more of their tops in “tall sizes.” Honestly, I am not that tall (I’m 5’8 but generally a size 6 or 8 in clothing) but their tops are always too short on me! This one is just perfect! Long torso friends rejoice.

See that stain on my shirt? Yep, that’s sweat. It was HOT. Sorry. Ew.

Weekend Reading.

happy weekend friends! I hope you are having a good one. This week was b-a-n-a-n-a-s. I got back from Montauk late Monday and it was just work-work-work upon getting home. But all things I’m super excited about!! Sometimes I laugh at myself for getting so stressed out as a lot of it is self-imposed… but I really do just want to make this blog (and all of my channels) the best that they can possibly be. I’m really excited for what’s to come in the next few weeks… it’s all so fun! This weekend I am rewarding myself by laying low. I have to get my nails done at some point but otherwise I plan on bingeing Ozark and doing a bit of reading. My friend threw a party out in the Hamptons last night… I was so eager to just be home that I came back to the city afterward. Sometimes you just want your own bed!

yummm – this fresh watermelon cocktail looks so good!

I’m obsessed with the color palette of this stripe dress.

A nail trend I’m excited to try.

Blair’s Paris photos have been so fun to see… I loved how she coordinated her stripes to Les Deux Plateaux!

The cozzzziest ($39!) tunic sweater. I foresee myself living in this come Fall.

A challenge: stop fibbing.

I probably need this $90 wrap dress in all four colors.

Totally making these gluten-free breakfast muffins – yummm!

I am always transfixed by other peoples’ skincare routines… it was fun watching Jacey’s morning routine! She’s a girl after my own heart with all those serums and potions.

This striped sweatshirt looks sooooo cozy!

As a single woman in her mid-thirties, Garance Doré’s essay on infertility really hit me hard.

I love the graphic print on this black & white dress.

This might be the best giveaway ever, for a great cause!

Stripes and a big bow… this top is just great.

Were you a teen in the late nineties? If so, read this immediately – it’s everything!!!

This ruffle tee is so pretty and it’s only $49.

Do squats really help your butt?

These embroidered heels are SO pretty.

This metallic dress is soooo dreamy on Alicia!

This lace dress reminds me so much of the one I wore in Thursday’s post… and it’s only $80!

I was obsessed with this top on Jenn – and it turns out it’s a scarf! So cool – and so expertly styled.

Advice I should follow: how to get better at networking.

I’ve found myself surprisingly into bodysuits (they’re great with skirts and anything high-waisted. This ruffled one is fab.

This is the cutest outfit ever on Carrie – I am obsessed with every single thing she’s wearing!

Remember those bow sneakers I wore on insta a while back? They sold out so quickly but these are almost identical!

Did you see these eye makeup looks from MAC? I’m a total failure at makeup but think this one is sooo pretty!

I’m really loving Liz’s new Q&A Series!!!

Simple strappy sandals.

A {Cozy} Upgrade.

wrap // tank // slim pants

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has super embarrassing, ratty old sweats + tees. Pieces that live at the bottom of your pajama drawer but also make you so happy when you just want to be comfy? For me it’s a pair of sweats that I have literally actually patched up holes in, and a Bentley College tee from when I first started there (I graduated in 2003 so… it’s old.)

It’s fine to hold onto those old relics, but… they’re not exactly fit for having anyone over. I’m a pretty big homebody and I work from home and love to entertain (Game of Thrones night!!)… so I’m a big fan of comfy, cute loungewear… an upgrade was in order! Something stylish.. but still cozy and warm when the AC is cranked up!

Enter Cuddl Duds, (available at QVC). Yes it’s a funny name but that’s exactly what they are… comfy cozy, ultra soft pieces you’ll just want to snuggle up and cuddle in. They’re lightweight, perfect for layering, and so, so soft… and both the wrap + leggings are smooth on the outside and brushed on the inside for the feel of your favorite cozy sweats!

Outfit Details: Cuddl Duds Wrap, Tank, and Slim Pants (note: the line runs a bit big… I’m wearing a small and the fit is pretty relaxed!)

My personal favorite is the Comfortwear Wrap – it’s made from ultra cozy French Terry and brushed on the inside so it feels like your favorite sweatshirt – with the drape and style of something you could also wear outside the house.

I’m all about a good multi-tasker, and the wrap is just that – it transitions perfectly from home to errands  when paired with jeans and slip on sneaks. Perfect for a chilly evening walk or running errands/grabbing groceries.

Little White Dress.

I know, I know… a) I needed another little white dress like a hole in the head and b) I say it over and over again but truly: Zimmermann can do no wrong in my book. A few weeks ago I went out to the Hamptons for Shopbop’s summer party and they let me choose an outfit so of course I immediately went to the Zimmermann page and selected this dress. It’s just the best. So easy and fun to wear. For the party, (as I knew I would be playing beer pong on a lawn) I chose wedges, but for everyday here in the city (with pavement and not grass) I love it with my favorite pink heels (and fun feather earrings!)

This week has been a busy one! A big goal of mine has been to incorporate more video into my site (ideally to post at least one or two videos a month to both the blog/Youtube and Insta). I finally found a videographer that I really like and can afford (they can be so expensive, so in the past I’d only be able to do videos if they were paid for by a brand) and so I am shooting two videos today which is pretty exciting. One is a beauty tutorial and one is something funny. Make sure to add me on Youtube (if that’s something you’re into!) to stay abreast of what’s to come! On top of that I started BBG this week and oh my goodness it is so hard. I didn’t think a 28 minute workout could be so taxing. I can barely walk after legs day, ha ha! I totally fell off the fitness wagon this summer… getting back on track has been a little rocky. Someone please remind me that next time I decide to take a break from the gym. 😉

A S’mores Soirée!

This post is created in partnership with Edwards® Desserts.

If you were paying attention on Instagram last week, you might have seen that Thursday was National S’mores Day! I am a big fan of s’mores, camping (and glamping), and (let’s be honest) chocolate and gooey marshmallows in general as a food, so I was pretty excited when Edwards invited me to take over their instagram and host a glamping-themed S’mores Day Soiree at the W Hotel’s new (ultra chic) glamping suite.

You see, Edwards has the most delicious, new S’mores Crème Pie, making it the most scrumptious National S’mores Day treat! There was really no better way to celebrate the day than sitting atop a rooftop, in a yurt, eating pie, drinking wine, and making new friends… yum!

S’mores is so classic for summer, but I also love the other varieties of Edwards pie. S’mores Crème is my favorite, but Edwards Key Lime is a close second. They also make Chocolate Crème, Turtle and Pecan, among other delicious flavors. I have a few of the pies at home, which I have to admit are pretty addictive. They’re perfect for when you’re having friends over… just remove from the freezer, let ’em thaw for 30 minutes and serve!  Throw in some cocktails or wine and you’ll have yourself the perfect get together.
