TGIF!!!






Print top: Macy*s, Cable & Gauge brand
Tank: Express
Jeans: Kohl's
Heels: Modcloth
Bracelet: Kohl's 
Necklace: Francesca's Collections

So, happy Friday all!!! I am veryyyy glad it's the weekend. We got let out of work an hour early today. I went to TJ Maxx, Old Navy, and Pier 1 with a friend of mine, after work. Neither of us found anything to buy. I haven't found anything in a while from TJ Maxx, I used to find clothes pretty often there. They almost always have Cable & Gauge tops. I love Cable & Gauge. They make such cute prints, and flattering styles. Many stores sell this brand. But, Marshalls & TJ Maxx sell them cheaper than stores like Macy*s. Lately, I haven't seen any Cable & Gauge shirts I had to have, from TJ Maxx or Marshall's. 
Tomorrow, Bob's (my boyfriend) parents and brother are coming over for dinner. Bob is such a good cook. He's making a brocolli cheddar risotto! I can't wait. He's made it about three times before for us, and he knows how much I love it. It is so flavorful. I love brocolli, one of my favourite veggies!
The outfit in the pictures is what I wore to work today. The colourful print top is one of my favourite shirts that I own. It's Cable & Gauge, I bought it at Macy's about a year ago. It was one of my first Cable & Gauge tops. It's flattering, and I love the pattern and colours!! The jeans are my favourite pair. Just the right shade of  dark denim, with a little stretch in them. They're boot cut, and that's my favourite cut for jeans. The heels are such a great shade of bright, rich orange. They are easy to walk in, because the heel is thick. They're from Modcloth, just another AMAZING Modcloth find!!
In the last two pictures I'm sitting on a beautiful bench that I found at Home Goods awhile back. I LOVE the pattern. It's so pretty and cheerful!
I'm going to my parent's on Sunday for Easter. My sister will be there. She lives in Connecticut, and is back for the weekend. My grandparents will be over on Easter, too. Bob's going to be doing his own family thing, at his parent's house.

Hope everyone has a great weekend & Easter!!

New Hope

Hellooo! So yesterday, my boyfriend and I went to New Hope, and met up with his friend, and his friend's friend. The sun was out the whole day, so that was nice! I don't normally wear skirts/dresses much in the Winter, because I hate the cold. But, I decided to try and brave it, and wore my ticket dress. It ended up being alright, I wasn't too cold. 
I bought a super cute necklace, and a magnet, and a card. I love New Hope, it's such a cute town to walk around. We ate dinner at Triumph Brewing. I got a burger, it was pretty good. We had drinks there, and then had some more in Milford, at the Ship Inn. It was a fun day/night. I hadn't been to New Hope sine last July, so I had been bugging Bob to go back ha. 
Today I'm looking forward to just relaxing with Bob. I loveee lazy Sundays with him! :) I'm gonna work out and bake Veronica's cookies, too. (They are soooo good!) 

Here's what I wore:









The last picture, right above, is the heart necklace I bought in New Hope, I got it from this cool store called Thirteen Vintage. I love the colours. It says: love, lust, like, and hate on it, The arrow spins.


Dress: Modcloth
Shrug: Target
Belt: Kohl's
Tights: Old Navy
Flats: Zappos.com (Jessica Simpson brand) These shoes are sooooo comfy!!!
Necklace: Modcloth

There are a few dresses on Modcloth I have been obsessing over, here they are:




I REALLY want the first one pictured, the Together and Apartment dress. I LOVE that print! Of course it's the most expensive of the 3, ha. And I'm not sure what size to order, because there's a zipper on the dress, and dresses with zippers are always risky for me. I'll probably end up ordering it soon though, because it's just SO cute!

It's Spring, why won't the weather act like it??

Hello there! I'm so glad it's Spring, finally! But, I wish the weather would act accordingly. It snowed here Monday, and has been quite cold the whole week. I'm very sick of the cold/gray! 
Today I received two packages in the mail! That brightened my day a bit, ha. One is a neon orange dress from Express, featured in the pictures below. It is VERY bright & I love it! I have this dress in neon yellow/greenish, as well. I also have it in bright blue, and another orange one- but the bright blue and orange one, do not  have a lace overlay. They are simple stretch cotton. These types of dresses from Express are called "Skater" dresses. I wear them with a belt at the waist, and they're very flattering for my body type.
I also received yellow sandals, from Modcloth. They are in the fist picture.I love them! They are bright and cheerful, and comfy. :)

Vegas Withdrawl!!!

Hello there!!
So, I got back from Las Vegas a week and a half ago. I had a great time! I went with my boyfriend, and we were there for five nights. It was so nice to be in warm weather, with sunny skies!! It was about 70-75 degees for the high, Sun through Wed. Thurs was a little bit chillier, and cloudy. But, it was wonderful to feel the bright sun on our skin! I've been so sick of this longggg Jersey winter. 
I did a lot of shopping, of course!! What else is new? Ha! I frequented a store called Brighton, while we there. It's a great jewelry store!! Mostly silver jewelry, which I love. I'm not big on gold. I bought three necklaces and a bracelet. Most of their jewelry has hearts on it, like heart charms or a heart design. Very cute stuff, and reasonably priced!
I also went into Express a lot, and bought a NEON lime green/yellowish tank dress, a neon pink belt, and bright pink sunglasses. The dress is EXTREMLY bright, and is in a picture below. I love it! The brighter the better, I say. 
It's SO hard to come back to normal life, after vacation. It's so nice to get away, relax, have no responsibilites. Ah, well...I'll be going away again this summer, with my boyfriend. I'll  IMpatiently wait until then! Ha.

This first picture was taken tonight in my apartment: 
Dress- Modcloth
Necklace: Fay's (store in NYC)
Satchel: Modcloth
Heels: Modcloth
Bracelet: Express

Our first drinks of the trip! At Fat Tueday. MMM!

We had such a good time, I can't say enough good things about Vegas! That was my fifth visit, and our fourth visit together!
