The Right...Go-To January Outfit

I can't believe we're at the end of January already!!  I have a really great explanation for my radio silence this month and I promise I'll explain soon.  In the meantime, I'm really excited to share my (second post of 2015) January go-to outfit with you!  I found myself wearing knee high boots, a skirt and a sweater one too many times this month!  It fluctuated between freezing cold to a pretty mild (30*) day and back to freezing cold.  And as I'm writing this I'm in the process of riding out blizzard Juno.  I hope you all are having a great week and I can't believe we are almost done with the first month of 2015.  Crazy how time flies!

Happy 2015!

a lot can happen in a year

And it did.  2014 was a big year for me.
In January my passport arrived.  February brought the most spontaneous trip I've ever been on when I hopped a flight to Hilton Head with Krista to escape the polar vortex that was our weather.  In March the [big] trip planning began.  What started as just a week in Italy evolved to include Paris and I was officially on the hunt for flights.  I decided 2014 was the year I was going to run the New York City Marathon and found out I was officially training/running with Team for Kids.  In April, I hit a home run at work when we got a marketing campaign approved for one of my clients.  What would follow would be a series of short, killer events and a new "baby" for me to foster in the form of a new website and the most fun social media account of all our clients (disclaimer: I don't usually talk real life job stuff here but the whole campaign was definitely a major highlight for me).  I also met David Bromstad at his Naturalizer launch event and would later host a live Google hangout interview with him about his second collection with Naturalizer.  In May, one of my bestest girlfriends came to visit and I was so happy to be able to show her my life in NYC.  June kicked off yet another "summer of yes."  And the summer of spontaneous concerts (ex: purchasing Gov Ball tickets the night before it started - Outkast killed it and I relived some amazing musical memories).  I went on my usual bi-yearly trip home for the Rodeo followed by the most amazing Fourth of July weekend at Lake Schroon.  Zac Brown Band concert tickets were purchased the day before their show at PNC Bank Arts Center and I officially started marathon training.  July also brought November Project into my life (thanks to my BRF - best running friend) and I would never look at group fitness the same again.
August brought an amazing weekend in Saratoga including yet another spontaneous concert ticket purchase (Jason Aldean), a day at the races with America's Best Racing and an extra night out on Caroline Street.  September brought a very busy Fashion Week (including backstage at Prabal Gurung!), a trip to Chicago, DC AND Philly (it was very travel heavy!).  In October I caught the Jeff Koons exhibit at the Whitney right before it closed and really battled through my running injuries in preparation for the NYC Marathon.  In November I completed the Marathon, went to my first Ranger's game, my best friend got engaged and I packed my bags for my 9 day trip to Europe.  I closed the year with a couple of great holiday parties, a night at the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, a weekend reunited with my besties in SF and a solid week of relaxing at home and spending time with my family for the holiday.  
2014 was a crazy amazing year and I can't wait to see what adventures await for me in 2015!  Cheers to a new year!

The Right... Go-To December Outift

Whiskey Ginger  //  Living After Midnite


Happy Holidays friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful last couple of days with your family and are enjoying some down time after the last couple of weeks of madness!  For this month's go-to outfit, it only made sense to feature one of my favorite party looks.  I mixed it up from my usual skirt/dress choice and went with faux leather leggings and a whimsical top.  
Be sure to check out Jackie and Taylor's go-to looks!

East vs. West: New Year's Eve

EastvsWest NYE
Living After Midnite  //  Tiffany Style Blog  //  Envision Pretty  //  Pursuit of Shoes  //  Oomph

New Year's Eve is right around the corner and I couldn't be more excited.  I'll be back in the city for the second year and I'm looking forward to ringing in the new year with close friends.  I've strayed away from the super fancy parties the last couple of years because I feel like they always get this hype and then don't live up to it.  I'd much rather keep it low-key.
I'm really looking forward to 2015 - I feel like 2014 was quite the year and can't wait to share a post of reflections next week.  
I'd love to hear what you're wearing for NYE and be sure to check out my East vs. West babe's outfits as well!

The Right... Party Frock



Guys.  The holiday party circuit is almost over.  Insert tears of joy and tears of sadness.  I think I've said this already but I felt like this holiday season was the craziest one yet (mostly because I had more events in my personal life than in my work life, which is hard to beat sometimes!).  I enjoyed every bit of it and I still have a couple of brunches/secret santa exchanges/white elephant parties to attend.  I'm headed home for the holidays tomorrow for the week (with a slight detour to SF for the weekend - #happydance) and I'll be posting next week but might be taking the next week off.  Sometimes a girl's just gotta re-group. 
Today's party frock is brough to you by LuLu's who never disappoints in the party dress department.  I love how festive it is without being so literal, and the back of this dress drapes so nicely.
