Yeah it’s finally Friday! What a week. We had two cold days from school this week after just starting again from winter break. I’m not complaining because it’s been really really cold and I’m still getting over a cold. Quality time with my bed and lots of tea definitely helped the last two days.
On that note, since it’s already the weekend I’m ready for a night out on the town. I don’t really feature a lot of “night” outfits because obviously the best lighting is during the day, but I just had to take photos of one of my favorite winter night outfits. I scored this awesome DVF polka dot mock shirt at Crossroads Trading last month when I hosted an event with some fellow blogger ladies. I could not believe my eyes and price ($30)! Also, can you believe I’ve had this leather skirt since 2001? Crazy. Note to self: invest in more leather.
Here’s to the weekend and staying warm as possible.

The crop top is this week’s feature on Tuesday Trends. Yesterday’s post featured a floral crop top, but today it’s all about the black, white, gray and patterned crop top. Like I said yesterday, crop tops have been this summer’s hottest trends. There are so many ways to wear one without having to feel uncomfortable. My favorite way to wear a crop top is with a high waisted skirt – elastic skirts are great and any length make a great match.
If it’s your first time wearing one, which I love experimenting with new trends, try a longer and basic color one. If you’re feeling bold I highly recommend these awesome patterned tops.
If you try out this trend, @ me on instagram and show me how you styled your crop top or leave a comment below.

Pleats, polka dots and peaks of orange make this preppy dress so dreamy. It’s very hard to resist a Maison Jules dress because the fit and style always fit like they were made just for me. The lightweight material made for a breezy day shopping in SoHo and eating macaroons.
Once you find a brand, cut or length to a dress or any article of clothing, stick with that brand/cut/length. Knowing your body type is better than just wearing something that’s just trendy. A big part of personal style is knowing what fits your body and how you express that. And it’s definitely alright to experiment with different fabrics, prints, lengths, etc..
Dress: Maison Jules (very cute options 1, 2, 3)
