Coffee Date

February 24, 2017

Love this bow detail! 
Earrings: Kendra Scott Top: Chicwish c/o Jeans: Express Boots: Steve Madden

Who is ready for Spring? It was almost 70 degrees yesterday and even though I'm still so sick I got out and walked Emmy and it was beautiful. If you are ready, you need this top. Not only is it under $45 but there are only 4 left! What're you guys doing this weekend? My friends and I are supposed to go to dinner for my birthday tomorrow night (my birthday isn't until Monday) but if I still feel this way I'll be staying in bed. Hope you all have a great weekend! xo

Casual Chic in NYC

February 22, 2017

Coat: Day Furs Sunglasses: Quay Austrailia, similar here Sweatshirt: Adidas Jeans: Express Boots: Public Desire Bag: Trendlee

Hi guys! I'm so sorry this post is going up so late. I literally feel like death. I wouldn't wish this sickness upon anyone. So I will be laying in bed the rest of the day trying to get rid of it. Anyways, I love casual chic anything and it was perfect for a day in NYC when we decided to shop and explore the city while at Fashion Week. I got my bag from Trendlee, have you guys heard about them? You can buy and sell luxury pre owned designer handbags at a fraction of the cost. They take their authenticity very seriously and guarantee it for every item. They also provide free returns for everywhere in the U.S. The bag I'm carrying is here but if you like it I think you'll also like this one. The best part is I have a discount code for you guys to get 5% off your order; all you have to do is use code WYHIN at checkout! Happy shopping xo 

Thank you Trendlee for sponsoring today's post. 

Burgundy + Faux Fur

February 20, 2017

Dress: ModeAlise c/o Scarf: ModeAlise Shoes: Christian Siriano for Payless c/o

How beautiful is this dress? Before I left for NYFW I visited my Mom's best friend's store ModeAlise located inside the Worthington Mall and I tried on a few things. I normally don't go for tight dresses because let's face it, I like burgers and fries and I'm no Kendall Jenner. However, I thought this dress would be perfect for Valentine's Day and I loved adding the faux fur scarf. ModeAlise carries clothing, accessories, jewelry and shoes. They have so many cool and unique styles and you should definitely check it out!

Hi guys! I wanted to share with you a quick recap on my trip to NYFW. This is my third time going. My first was in college and I volunteered as a backstage dresser. And I have gone twice now as a blogger. Fashion week is so fun but very exhausting. I'm so happy my roomie Vanessa packed lots of snacks because all I brought were protein bars and I went through them pretty fast. I love making lists so I am just going to make a quick one to recap my favorite things from FW. 

- Meet & Greet at Thakoon with We Wore What & Chriselle Lim
- New York Pizza! We went to a delicious place called Sofia Pizza Shoppe (highly recommend)
- Shows: Georgine, Francesca Liberatore, Jenny Packham, Leanne Marshall, obsessed with all of them
- Getting a massage at the Bloglovin brunch
- Our Galentine's Day date at While We Were Young with Double Shot of Sass
- And my ultimate favorite was meeting Rachel Parcell and Emily Jackson, they literally talked to us forever and were so freaking nice and down to earth. I LOVED them. 

Overall, it was such a fun trip and I feel so blessed to have found a job that I love doing every single day. I haven't decided if I'm going in September so stay tuned. Thank you guys for reading! XO

Valentine's Day Look

February 13, 2017

Shirt: Nordstrom Rack Coat: Forever 21, almost identical here Jeans: Express Earrings: BP Shoes: Christian Siriano for Payless c/o

Happy Monday babes! I know I'm one day early but I wanted to share with you an easy Valentine's Day look! I unfortunately won't be with my babe on V-Day. I'm still in New York for Fashion Week until Wednesday but we will celebrate when I get home. We always do little things for each other so Valentine's Day isn't really a "special" day for us. As for this look, I'm obsessed with this turtleneck I'm wearing. I think it's so classy and I have it in black too. I think you can wear them with so much. What do you guys have planned for Valentine's Day?
