Picking Favorites

I know I’ve preached this over and over, but the best part about blogging is getting to meet so many amazing people. This past Saturday I met up with Tracy from The Right Shoes. We grabbed a bite to eat at The Grey Dog and ended up chatting for a few hours. She just moved to NYC two weeks ago and it was great to talk to another newbie about this crazy city we live in! It was so refreshing to meet someone with very similar interests, who happens to be in a very similar situation as me, and who is so down to Earth. Kind of reminds me of Step Brothers… “Did we just become best friends??” :)

As for the title of this post, have you been noticing how I’ve really been picking favorites when it comes to color combinations?? Another mint + cobalt outfit here. And then my whole orange + purple stint, as mentioned here and here.

H&M Sweater (similar) / DVF Loves Current/Elliott Denim (also available in white/black) / Sam Edelman Sandals / H&M Necklace (similar) / J.Crew Bracelet / Stella & Dot Bracelet / Michael Kors Watch

Thanks for snapping my photos, Tracy!

PS – I haven’t had my nails painted in weeks. Let’s not talk about it. I’m not going to search for the post, but I believe I once said that my current state of mind could be identified by my nail polish? No polish = Stress Ball.

PPS – This is another way you can wear white after Labor Day!

    I think we all have favorites and I agree with you re. the nail polish. I feel naked without my nails done, but some days I’m just happy to get out of bed and get everything done that I need to. Hope you get a chance to get them done soon.
