First post from New York

If you don't know yet, I'm officially in New York! I took last week off from the blog to move. That meant 13 hours, three days, 30 boxes, my parents, dixie and a u-haul got me to where I am now. I'm loving the city so far and I start work today! I'll let you know how it goes.

And stay tuned for pictures of the apartment! Until then...

Top: BlueTuque (old)/Skirt: BlueTique/Hat: J Crew/Shoes: Jack Rogers/Bag: Hermes

I finally gave in and bought the panama hat from J. Crew. I've had my eye on it for a while now and since the weather has been so great recently, I decided it had to be mine. This hat pretty much goes with everything so I consider it a rather good investment in my closet. Say hello, because you'll be seeing a lot more of this hat.

For now, I wanted to just pair it with a simple outfit. I've been looking for a black maxi for a couple of weeks to just be comfortable in, but never found the right one. Then I had the bright idea to pair my favorite tank top with a black maxi skirt. And way-la! A very own make shift maxi. Pretty good idea right? I gave myself a pat on the shoulder for this idea. Hopefully I'll have more! I paired it with one of my favorite pairs of Jack Rogers to complete this summertime look. Simple colors that go great with everything!

Glad to be back... and from New York! Excited to get started

  5. It's voilĂ  not way-la.

  6. What a fantastic idea to combine a top and maxi skirt! I was on the hunt for a black maxi dress too, and found one for $17.95 at H & M. Any idea on what other colors could work in terms of pairing a top and maxi skirt for a maxi dress look?

  7. So glad you are back to the blogging world! Can't wait to hear about your New York adventures!
