OOTD - Winter, but Make it Fashion...

Monday, January 27, 2020

Winter, but make it fashion... or something like that. I wore this dress to my mom's birthday. I love the pearl details on the sleeves. The storm hit hard while we were at dinner but I had to take the opportunity for an impromptu photoshoot.

OOTD - OTK boots + Baby Doll dress

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

You can never go wrong with a little black dress, ever. I m trying to buy things that are staples. This dress caught my eye, I love the boho casual style that can easily be dressed for this weather.  This can be a casual day dress or you can dress it up with some heels, jewelry and accessories that stand out and it’s a super chic look for a night out. Today I paired it with OTK boots and oversized coat.

Best Book to Movie Adaptations

Tuesday, January 21, 2020

I love a good book, but I also love to see a good book come to life on screen. Lately so many books have been adapted to movies that I cannot wait to see. Here are my top five picks and trust me just picking five was very difficult, so if there is one that didn't make the cut that you think should have let me know. 
Emma- A take on the Jane Austin classic, who doesn't love a good film adapted from an amazing author. I love historical films and even though this one has been done before I am so looking forward to this new take, it comes out February 21, 2020 so watch out for it.
To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You- I loved the first movies, it was cute and funny and I can not wait to see how the second book in the series unfolds on screen, the actors in the movie do the words on the page so much justice, get ready to make your partner watch this on Valentines Day or on February 12, 2020 when it comes out. You know if you're not into that whole Hallmark holiday. 
The Rhythm Section-  Switching gears because I love a good action movie, this movie is about a woman who seeks revenege against those who orchestrated a plane crash that killed her family. I don't normally like Blake Lively's acting I mean she's pretty but that's about it, I watched the  trailer and I think this movie might actually be good, for one she isn't pretty in it so I figure it must be good right. I mean a haircut can change your acting skills right? Check it out when it comes out  January 31, 202o and let me know what you think. 
The Secret Garden- This was one of my all time favourite books when I was young. THe first film that came out was good, but it didn't really do the book justice. I found the garden to be regular and bland the book was so much more imaginative and amazing. The trailer for this movie showed an amazing garden that would finally live up to my young dreams I am really looking forward to a movie that will make me nostalgic for my youth. The date I found for it's release is April 17, 2020 
The Woman in the Window- An agoraphobic woman living alone in New York begins spying on her new neighbours, only to witness a disturbing act of violence. I watched the trailer for this and honestly the IMDB description pretty much summed it up so why mess with a description that is already good. I haven't heard of this book and since the movie doesn't come out until May I am adding this book to my reading list and will read it before I see the movie. It looks like a really good thriller and I can't wait to see the screen adaptation to see if it does the book justice because so far all the book reviews have been amazing and I would hate for it not to live up to the book hype...cough cough 50 Shades. It's slotted for release  May 15th, 2020.

What book to movie adaptations do you think should have made the list?

OOTD - Winter Date Night Outfit

Monday, January 20, 2020

Winter is a hard time for me, I wanna look cute but I wanna be warm, and with the cold weather we have been having, I don't know what to wear. Easy way to style some of my favorite summer pieces when its cold outside - layer a wrap dress over a fitted black turtleneck and pair it with black booties  for a cute and stylish but easy swinter outfit.

boots: Call it Spring
turtleneck: J-Crew 
tights: Nordstrom 

OOTD - The Perfect Skirt For Cold Weather Days

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

I picked this skirt up for the fall & winter season and I am obsessed with the length and cut. I think it perfect to wear with trainers, OTK boots or just cute booties making it super versatile! It has a slit giving it more dimensions and it will easily transition it to warmer months too. Today I paired it with a chunky sweater (and simple tuck in front that took me 15 minutes to get just right) and boots.

skirt: Shein
top: Shein
purse: Kate Spade
shoes: Aldo

#Review: Yeti Travel Mug

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

I thought this mug was over priced for no reason. I did not feed into the hype, but once I got one. I mean I'm all in!! I'm drinking the kool aid, i'm on the Yeti train, it is amazing. I do have some things I would change but overall I love it.

The Pros:
  1. This is a big one it keeps my coffee hot/warm for longer. I was using a Starbucks mug and while it's great and the price is better my mid morning my coffee would be cold and I would never finish it. At work I have meetings, and places to go so it helps to have my coffee stay warmer for longer because I want to finish my coffee, it flows through my veins. 
  2. I love the size I have the 20 oz mug and it's the perfect amount for me to get my coffee intake every morning. I've cut down to one mug a day and this is just the right amount. 

The Cons:
  1. It is bulky to hold and the outside is slippery. It would be nice if it came with a silicone sleeve so you have something sturdier to grip onto. I find when i'm going from meeting to meeting that it's a bit bulky and slippery to juggle with my keys, laptop and phone. Especially on days when I don't have a pocket it makes it super difficult. I know first world problems but still. 
  2. I have the new magnetic lid which is a big improvement over the original but there are still issues. Like today it was freezing cold out and I had no hands so I put it in my lunch bag and it fell over and I didn't notice so there was coffee everywhere. The point of this is in my Starbucks mug this would not be an issue the closure is secure. 

A side note I did manage to find a silicone sleeve off of Amazon that I think will fit so I will update you here if it does in fact fit and a link to the product.
