Christmas eve is right around the corner and I'll be spending it with the boyfriends family, my parents and sister. I've been put in charge of the cheese plate, which I'm completely pumped about. I've already started collecting new accessories (cheese markers & knives), researching tasty cheeses to try and tips on how to create the ultimate cheese plate. It will include some of my Trader Joe's favorites; Truffle Cheese, Parmesan/Gouda blend and some new ones too. It's going to be fabulous, I can't wait! woo!
I saw this jacket/wrap/cardigan at Kohls last week and was instantly obsessed. It has a super cozy wrap design with the feminine belted waist. It going to look stellar with some black skinny jeans and boots. Comfy, Cozy and Cute! Best part its on sale right now!
We are in winter people. I spent this past weekend out of the city running errands, doing dinner with the boyfriends family and going to a toy drive for a childrens hospital. I hadn't been in a toy store for some serious shopping in years and years. I was a bit nervous at the beginning and then went wild throwing everything from play-dough to barbies and jewelry making kits in my cart. My weekend wear included this cozy blanket sweater, it's a cold weather favorite. Hope you had a nice weekend too!

I'm back from my fabulous vacation! It was an amazing time with family and friends cruising the western Caribbean. The trip was filled with laughs, adventure, lots of sun and memories that will last a life time! If I could be on vacation all the time I would. I had to share some of my pics from the trip.

a day of walking around and shopping in my new romper
The weather in Chicago has been a perfect chilly temp. Not too cold and not too warm, its the ultimate weather for rocking my faux leopard jacket. It's the ultimate statement piece for my usual all black look.I also recently purchased these burgundy booties - a fab. forever find. They are super comfortable for all my city running around. Happy Fall!
I have a serious case of vacation brain. I'm heading to Miami for a couple of days to visit a fab. friend and then spending a glorious week cruising the Caribbean with family and friends (yes I will be doing the zip-line pictured above). I've been counting down the days until this trips for a long time. It's right around the corner and I couldn't be more excited! I've already begun planning outfits, buying sunblock and getting organized. A few of my new vacation purchases...
My usually daily outfit is a head to toe black look. I think it comes from living in NYC for nearly 5 years. I love this top I just bought, I adore the gold scarf print with sheer sleeves, it pairs perfectly with mt go to black skinny jeans and will look equallay as fab tucked into a skirt. The gold-toe boots are a new purchase too, I've been waiting to pull them out. Just love the gold and black contrast and pointy toe.
