Here is today’s look courtesy of my ❤️ for Banana Republic. Sneakers are vans (old)
So for today’s post I thought that I would bring you some of the outfits I wore this week. As I’ve said before most everything is old and I re-wear clothes (oh the humanity!). But because I take care of them they continue to live. I took the photos on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to show you what my typical outfits look like. Now because I live in NYC black is the go to option for most everything (see Monday and Wednesday) and let’s face it, it’s easy. It’s like black is quintessential to being a NY’er. No other city does all black as well as NYC and in a city that is this dirty and grimy black is it. I found a great article that I think sums it up from The Cut. “We wear black because we’re not tourists here to see a show; because we are, in a sense, with the band. The band is New York, and the color is black.” As they say, all black eurrything….
Friday is all about jeans and my new top from Banana (Yea I treated myself gurl). Now mind you all week I have rocked my little anorak jacket from Old Navy that I bought like 6 years ago. Best $5 spent and like all things, take care of your stuff and things will last.
My point is this invest in quality pieces (take your cues from Europeans) and layer in fun throw away pieces that are trendy. Not only does it make dressing easier but it’s fiscally sound and leaves you more money to go do shit like eating with friends, movies, and the stuff people do.
So here is the run down
All the jewelry is mostly Chloe+Isabel with some personal pieces
Clothing is a mix of Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, LOFT, New Balance and Aldo Shoes because guess what at a certain point you know what brands work with your body type and these are it.
All my photos are taken with my trusty iPhone because guess what I don’t have anyone to take them for me. But I like to think you , my readers, are ok with that because guess what…it makes me normal like you. I also don’t filter anything or retouch I want you to see the real me. Now I want to go on a shopping bender…FML #adulting sucks

Its Friday, which means payday, casual work attire and start to a weekend of netflixing. Oh and its April fools… I’m sure like many of you, I wake up stare into the abyss known as my closet and think I have nothing to wear. Yet there are hangers full of items. I mean I still need to be fairly profesh ya know? So button downs and blouses are my staples, and I usually wear them on weekends. I’m all about versatility and need items that can do both. Plus mama’s on a budget so what’s old is new again! I wish I could say April fools, no budget for me.

What about you readers? Are you able to make what’s old new again? And happy April Fools and maybe your pranks go off without a hitch….
Last night I went out to cafe el presidente with my peeps and this is what I wore. I feel like I’m always giving you guys week day looks but never my weekend looks. As you can tell I’m super casual on weekends, no makeup no fluff. I also got in my new bracelets from E.Kammeyer and I ❤️ them! So as you can tell weekends I’m a jeans and t shirt kinda gal.
If your in the flatiron area check out Cafe El Presidente as the guacamole is on point as well as the crispy fish tacos.
