Exploring the Best Views in Central Park

Hello from New York City! It’s been a bucket list item for years for Johnny and I to go to New York City during the holidays together. I have been several times before but unfortunately, he couldn’t tag along. This time, we are in the NYC for a good few days and are beyond excited to explore and check off some places we’ve been dying to visit! I’m partnering with Sole Society in today’s post to share some warm and comfortable pieces I’m wearing on my trip. Of course, you can’t go on a trip to New York without visiting Central Park. However, it’s quite vast and I want to save you some time. So I’m sharing the best views in Central Park and what I’m wearing to take in those views while staying warm.

Sparkle :: Office Holiday Party Outfit Idea

What a whirlwind week it has been! I know with December creeping around the corner, there are holiday gatherings on almost everyone’s schedule. I know when I did a poll on Instagram, many of you wanted an office holiday party outfit idea. I’ll admit, this can be a tricky one, especially if it’s a party taking place at the office or place of work. Y’all know I’m a fan of versatile pieces and this Gal Meets Glam Nell dress and jacket is no exception. Julie Engel is such an inspiration and I’m more than happy to support her by purchasing something from her collection. This outfit makes me feel bold, confident and powerful. When I got this in the mail, I literally couldn’t wait to try it on!

How to Style A Mint Green Cardigan for Fall and Winter

Given that temperatures are dropping in the western hemisphere and winter is starting to creep up, I want to share how to style a mint green cardigan for fall and winter. Plus, Norfolk just had the Grand Illumination Parade, trust me it’s a really big and bright deal, so that means Christmas is right around the corner! Mint green is traditionally more of a spring and summer color. I remember back in 2012, pining for all things mint, whether it was a good blouse or pair of mint gingham pants (holy crap, what a throwback to an embarrassing, younger version of me!). Mint is still a great color to wear but I can understand the challenges of styling it for fall and winter.

The Perfect Wool Coat for Petite Women

When cold-weather season rolls around, I love bringing out my coat collection. Some of my favorite coats are currently 30 percent off with code ‘FRIENDS’ so if you’re looking to cozy up, now is the time! This gray wool coat for petite women is a silhouette I’m starting to really love. It’s versatile enough to where you can wear it casually or dress it up. My first lodge coat is from last winter and throughout the season, I just loved how it fit. Since I got the boucle wool version, I knew I wanted something that’s less of a statement. Before it gets too cold where you are, I want to share three reasons you need this winter coat. Plus, it’s on sale!

Staycation at The Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach

In the years I’ve lived in Virginia Beach, I have discovered it is quite charming. From the scenic beaches, to beautiful hikes and growing food scene, Virginia Beach has quite a bit to offer. Watching The Cavalier Hotel get re-built has been a joy and I was incredibly excited when they reached out asking me to do a staycation. Rich history lines the walls of this historic luxurious hotel originally built in 1926. Its guest list is quite impressive including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Frank Sintra, Muhammad Ali and a host of Presidents such as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson.
