Recap of My New York Trip!

Happy Friday! I'm back from my NYC trip. The 10 days went by fast but I am so happy to be home. I just ate way too much food. So much of it was meat and I'm not used to eating so much of it on a daily basis. My parents like to have chicken, fish, pork, beef all in one sitting communal style. Will gladly go vegetarian for a few weeks!  This post is a recap of my vacation. Hope you enjoy the photos!  This is my BFF Andrea. We've known each other since we were 12 years old. It's rare to have such a long lasting friendship but those are the best kind. We went to Gatsby's Landing for dinner in Manhasset.  Roasted Duck Breast Grilled Lamb Chops  The next day I went to the Harry Potter store with a couple of my friends. Last year when I went to visit, the Harry Potter store had just opened and the lines were ridiculously long. I promised the next time I went back I would make the trip. So glad I did because the frenzy is now over and there was no line at all to get in. I g

Fit Review Friday! Relaxed Fit Gathered Cropped Jacket & Softstreme High Rise Culotte

  Happy Friday! I've got two new items up for review and both are fit requests. I do have one more item coming in, the  Repell Shell Classic Fit Hoodie in Blazer Blue Tone. I also ordered the Loungeful Cropped Hoodie and Loungeful Zip Hoodie  as well.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms.  Relaxed Fit Gathered Cropped Jacket Black Size 4 I'm wearing my usual size 4 and I do think this jacket runs slightly large. I could have sized down in this and it would have made the jacket a little less tent like from the side. There is quite a bit of volume below the waist, but the fabric is so thin it's quite airy. However, if you want to be able to layer underneath, I would definitely stick with your regular size.  I kind of do like the silhouette from the back. It's an interesting shape and great for warm weather. When I placed this order, Vintage Plum was sold out in my size, but looks like they just restocked. Thi

Review! Rothy's - The Saddle Bag & Athleta Secret Sale & WMTM Update!

Happy Friday! I'm going to the new office today for the first time and will probably head into the office three times a week (I'm hoping) which leads me to this review. This Rothy's saddle bag is fairly versatile. It can be used for quick errands over the weekends, brunch with some friends (now that things are getting better with the pandemic) and it's the perfect size for grabbing a bite to eat with office mates for lunch.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall.  The Saddle Bag Ivory/Ink also wearing my favorite cardigan Naked Cashmere's Rowen Size XS The size is definitely small. It can hold my card case, keys, phone and a small pouch to hold other miscellaneous things but that's about it. It's an easy bag to carry, I like to wear it crossbody to keep my hands free. The magnetic closure could be a little stronger, I do feel like it's a little on the weak side and opens quite easily, there's not much resistance there. The strap is fully adjus
