Friday Happiness

photo taken by me :)

You know its going to be a long week when Monday feels like Friday...and unfortunately that's how this week was for me. Every day seemed to be crazy, all filled with lots of work, lots of headaches, and lots of "is it Friday yet?". I thought today would never come. But its here, so time to celebrate! Looking forward to hopefully a beach day, and some major apartment shopping before I head out to LA for work. What's on your weekend agenda?

Little bits of happiness from the week...

Chic Tweak

Scarves are one of my favorite things to add to an outfit to take it from from dull to dreamy. So when I was asked to take part in ChicTweak's Influencer Favorites page, I was excited to put together an outfit to demonstrate just that.

I chose this Chan Luu scarf for a few reasons:

1. The colors are perfect for any time of year...pair it with a camo military jacket in the fall, a leather jacket in the winter, a denim dress in the spring, and a white tee and boyfriend jeans (like I did today!) in the summer.

2. I love everything Chann Luu and couldn't resist adding more to my collection.

3. I love the print!

Check out how I styled my scarf for my busy day in the office, packing for photo shoots for an upcoming trip to LA!

Beach Days

With only a few weekends left of the summer, I've been trying to take advantage of the beach as much as possible. On Saturday night my boyfriend and I went to an amazing restaurant for dinner (if you are ever in the Asbury Park area, be sure to check out Fish) before heading over to the beach for a sunset walk and some exploring on the boardwalk. Asbury Park had seen some better days, but in the past few years, the town has totally gotten a facelift and is becoming somewhat of a hot spot again.

Friday Happiness

taken from here

TGIF! It's been a long and stressful week, and I'm so happy that today marks the beginning of the weekend! I have some exciting news to share that I've been containing all week....I FOUND AN APARTMENT! I'll be moving to Hoboken in October and I couldn't be more excited. It took awhile for us to find the perfect place, but we did, and our space is huge. I can't wait to share pictures of it with you, once we get settled in. Let the furnishing begin!

Little bits of happiness...

French Obessed

It's been a while since I've posted about my current nail obsession, and to finish out the summer, I've been toying with the idea of a colored french manicure. I've exhausted all of the neon and coral colors that are my go-to summer staples and quite honestly, I'm ready for a change!

I can't remember the last time I got a french, and I think the only way I can make it work now, would be to break the rules and go crazy with color or sparkle. I love the idea of a monochromatic french: pink on pink, black on black, or even metallic on metallic. I also can't help but love the black tip french. There's some really cool and edgy, but still sophisticated about it.

What nail trends are you currently crushing on?

Wardrobe Wednesday

I was feeling slightly sparkly on Monday morning, so when I opened my closet to get dressed for work, I immediately reached for this little J.Crew number. I love how it can be paired with black cropped pants and sandals, perfect for a day at work, but also with a pair of ripped up jeans, a blazer, and sexy heels for a dinner date with my boyfriend. Versatility has always been key for me, and this top, although it may not seem that way, can be worn a million different ways.

Blue Crush

Blue is one of those colors that I love (navy especially!), but often have a hard time styling. I hate when blues clash-it's not often that you'll find me in a blue shirt and jeans-and I find that they look better when paired with other colors, like orange, white, red, and pink.

I have been on a blue kick lately though, and even got a blue mani/pedi last weekend. Very unlike me, but I'm kind of diggin' it! How do you wear blue?

Wardrobe Wednesday: Olympic Fever

I've been so addicted to the London 2012 Olympic Games, and love staying up too late seeing the outcome of all of the events. Swimming has been my favorite sport to watch, mainly for the hot men's team-cough, Ryan Lochte, cough- but women's gymnastics, track & field, and women's beach volleyball have all been on my radar for the past week. Since I've been feeling so patriotic, I decided to look the part on Monday at a photo shoot for work. Three cheers for the red, white, and blue!

Summer Girl

I had a bit of a shock over the weekend, when I realized how little of summer we have left. I hate to be a Debby Downer, but it's coming to an end, quicker than any of us would like. So when I saw this editorial from Vogue Brazil, I knew that I had to share it, if not for you, than to boost my summer morale. My weekends are filling up quickly, and I'm hoping to take in all the summer that I can. Here's to being the summer girl that I am...

Friday Happiness

taken from here

This weekend was originally going to be somewhat relaxing, after some non-stop vacationing that I've done, but it looks like it will be everything but that. Nick and I will be participating in a couples olympics tourney tonight at a friends...we're team Greece! Tomorrow looks like it's shaping up to be an apartment hunting day, so I'll be spending the afternoon in Hoboken looking at a bunch of places. Fingers crossed that my roommate and I find something! Sunday, I'm hoping, is going to be my detox day...meaning I'm heading to the beach, turning off my phone, and getting sucked into a good book. What are your weekend plans?
