Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend full of fab style moments. I can’t believe that its been 2 weeks since I last posted in my blog! I was under the weather for a few days, so I was not able to shoot or do much other than walk around with a box of tissue near me at all times. But I am back and 100% better! 🙂
This weekend has been great for me, especially this past Sunday! The weather yesterday was amazingg!!! After weeks of polar vortex’s, snow and slippery ice, New Yorkers were finally given a day of grace. The temperature high was 50 degrees! (pull out the tank tops, sunscreen and short-shorts!). It’s so sad that we’ve gotten to the point that 50 degrees is considered summertime around here. But I have to say, having one day in which I didn’t have to put on 3 layers before I walked out the door was ABSOLUTE BLISS!
Sunday was also “SuperBowl Sunday” in which the Seattle Seahawks played against the Denver Broncos. I am personally not a fan of either (proud Carolina Panthers fan!), but I was planning on attending a Super Bowl party that evening, and I wanted to participate by dressing in colors for one of the teams and rooting for them during the game. But when it came time for me to pick a team to root/dress up for, I couldn’t choose! I asked a few football enthusiast what team I should cheer for, but the result came back split down the middle.
So… I just decided to wear a navy outfit to support both! lol (Since they both have navy/blue incorporated into their team color).
My outfit choice for the beginning of the day reflected my Sunday church attire. I chose a navy outfit with a few black hints. I went for a black long sleeved top, tailored navy trousers, a short-sleeve oversized navy jacket and black patent pumps. I was so excited about the weather that I added my color-block “797” Tory Burch bag into the mix for a little color to brighten up the unusually warm day. I wanted to make sure that my outfit was able to transition easily into my evening plans. I later changed my pants to dark blue denim and added tan/grey wedge shoes.
Long Sleeved Top: H&M Basic // Tailored Trousers: Tory Burch // Short Sleeve Jacket: Ann Taylor Loft // Pantent Bow Pumps: Dolce Vita // Color Block 797 Bag: Tory Burch // Infinity Scarf: Find from my mother’s closet years ago // Necklace: Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market // Bracelets: Vintage // Watch: Michael Kors // Rings: H&M
The Super Bowl party that I attended was hosted by the beautiful and super sweet, Maham and her boyfriend Edwin. They were amazing host that provided a 3-course appetizer style meal for everyone during the game. From empanadas and bruschetta to cheesburger sliders and wings, and even fondue! It was a great night filled with dancing, laughing and the usual football trash talking of course.
