Combat Boots For Every Budget

October 8, 2019

Over the weekend, I shared a birthday present that I got myself: a pair of Chanel combat boots. I've been admiring them (from afar) for several years, but never wanted to take the financial plunge. But as the years went on and now, as a soon-to-be mom of two, I've started wearing more "sensible footwear," if you will. To make a long story short, I ended up trying them on and absolutely loving how they look and feel. Combat boots have been around for decades, so I know they'll always be a classic. I mean, I wore Doc Martens in middle school!

PS: Doc Martens still look incredibly cool on so many people, but I was looking for a pair that was just a tad less grungy.

With that being said, I know the pair I got are a crazy splurge and not in everyones budget. There are so many styles out right now, but I wanted to edit my list down the pairs that really caught my eye or that I've seen styled in person.


Weekend Notes | Hello, October.

October 4, 2019

Another week has come and went and now we're in October. Not sure how that happened, but every year seems to be going quicker than the last. I spent a large chunk of the week working at my laptop on very detailed posts like a 'beginners guide to a great skincare routine,' and a few others, some of which I'll be posting next week. 

On another note, I'm due in about a month and the procrastinator in me is finally in a decent place as far as 'baby prep' goes. Not that we need that much, but little things here and there. We're also currently in the middle of redecorating Nate's room since eventually, it will be shared. We have a few older closets in that room that needed to be updated, so I'm definitely excited for a few necessary changes. 

Anyhoo, below are links from the week: new winter boots I recently got, a favorite recipe that I revisited and a new show that we just started watching: 


One Dress | Two Ways

October 2, 2019

I ordered this (non-maternity) dress a few weeks ago in hopes that it would be a versatile piece to get me through the last two months of pregnancy. Since then, I've worn it several ways, including with casual sneakers and my new Paris Texas boots.


Weekend Notes

September 27, 2019

It's my birthday weekend (Saturday, the 28th - Libra season! ) and what I'm most looking forward to, is spending some time with close friends and family. I have a few dinners planned and if timing works out, we may even go and see Hustlers. I haven't been to the movies in ages, so hoping that ends up happening.

Meghan Donovan’s Perfect Day In NYC

September 23, 2019

For today’s installment of ‘My Perfect Day in NYC,’ I’m so excited to have Meghan from the Wit & Whimsy. I met Meghan, who now resides in Brooklyn Heights,  years ago, when Instagram wasn't even a thing and we solely just focused on our blogs! Till this day, Wit & Whimsy is one of the best blogs out there offering everything from detailed guides to Paris to diving into conversations like acupuncture and a wide variety of really honest and beautifully written, personal posts (like being single in your 30's and dealing with insecurities as a blogger).
