By the time you read this, I will be on set getting ready to do a fun segment that focuses on one of my favorite topics - accessorizing! With an early morning call and drinks later on tonight with some of my favorite people - it's going to be a long night but I'm super excited to see where the day will take me from start to finish! Just like Saturday we launched a new portion which focuses on runways, Mondays now focuses on the Look of the Day! These images could come from the day or an event from the previous week!
Today's look came from the photoshoot that I did this weekend! I love it as it is very "me" outfit. First, my style in the winter is a little more classic (versus the summer which is a little more boho chic). Second, I am a huge fan of mixed media which means that I love to pair high end designers along with those that are more accessible. I am a huge fan of leggings (grabbed these from Forever 21) as it makes it so much easier when you want to rock a fab pair of boots - speaking of, loving the Fairfax Boot which is from Report. As soon as I zipped these over the knee boots on, I was definitely in love. I'm also a fan of whimsy so having this see through ivory top with ruffles (another fab Forever 21 find) was a nice way to make the overall look very femme with a side of sizzle with the accessories!
Um I didn’t get the memo that we were going to have reasonable weather! The funny part is my winter coat has made an appearance already and we’re supposed to be in the fall. The good thing about this weather is that you can layer up and look appropriate when the weather is changing every second. When it comes to one of my favorite looks, I love the low neckline fitted sweater, paired with skinny jeans or a nice flair (you'll also want to make sure that you have various cuts and washes as this is a fun way to change up your look), ankle boots and of course – lots of accessories. As much as I love the over the knee boot, there is something to be said for wearing the little booties as well! This is such a great look when you’re at the office, going to Starbucks or doing whatever you need to do as you begin to tackle your Mon! Take some time to look at the pieces above and to begin to add them into your closet (note the cute lace tank that’s under this sweater) – such a sweet look and very chic!
I am so excited to share with you guys the Village and it also has a site that's online where you can order their yummie peanut butter. The Peanut Butter Co is known for their sandwiches that have a variety of flavors within their spreads. Peanut Butter is not only something enjoyed by children but by adults alike! Enjoy such sandwiches as the Fluffernutter, Peanut Butter Cup (this has Nutella and their freshly
ground peanut butter), Peanut Butter Club (including
two layers of peanut butter and two layers of jelly between three layers of bread) and more. If you're not interested in having one of their amazing peanut butter sandwiches, you will be able to enjoy salads and much more.
As stated before, there is also a site where you can enjoy a variety of flavors. Recently, I purchased Dark Chocolate Dreams which is a mix of peanut butter and dark chocolate! I was so excited to get this as I wanted to taste this. I have enjoyed this on mini pita breads as a great snack! There is also a peanut butter called Bees Knees which has honey in it. They are definitely creative and at least you can enjoy this nutritious food by ordering online if you're not in the city. With so many options, you're bound to find something tasty.
Peanut Butter & Co is so pleased to let you know more about their amazing brand, that they have provided a variety of jars of their rich and healthy product for 4 winners in our giveaway! Simply answer your favorite way to incorporate peanut butter in a recipe or your favorite peanut butter and jelly sandwich and you could be selected as one of four winners! Begin posting to this post and by Fri at noon on 06.04.08! I look forward to seeing your recipes, ideas and more!
People always like to know about a great spot. You want to go somewhere where you know you can find a table, has a laid back vibe, a few nibbles and a great space. My goal in terms of going to a great lounge is knowing that no matter what day you choose, it's always perfect. My pick for this week (and any other) is Xai Xai Wine Bar. This bar recently opened and is NYC's only South African Wine Bar. I love that in terms of "nibbles" they have tapas and cheese plates which are perfect. If you're looking for something to do on Friday after work, Shandy Fridays just started. For those of you that aren't as familiar with this, it's beer and sprite together. I think this combo is great for those that aren't really into beer but would like to learn more about it. Of course when I went last weekend, I enjoyed their selection of Shiraz and loved the very earthy natural vibe. Visit the website and enter your name so that you can hear about all the new events that are going on at Xai Xai Wine Bar.
