I wore the above outfit while enjoy the perfect weekend day in New York City…

After rolling out of bed at the crack of noon, Eric and I started the day with brunch at the Plaza, meandered through Central Park for a spell, and then window-shopped our way up Madison Avenue.  Later on, I met a couple of old friends uptown to watch an outdoor performance Romeo & Juliet (and managed not to cry for once during the final scene!), and we ended the evening with a few tapas and LOTS of laughter!

How was your weekend?

This is hands-down one of my favorite dresses for work.  I love the subtle playfulness that the peter pan collar exudes. The first time I wore it on the blog was with pink and grey accessories.  This time around, I decided to go with red accents.  I got tons of compliments throughout the day, so I must’ve been on to something!


Waaaaayyyy back when my entire office was stuck working from home for over 3 months, my old boss got us all FitBits to encourage us to get out of the house and start being more active.  The gesture turned out to be a huge success, and I’ve been hooked on this sucker ever since!  In case you’re not too familiar with these little gadgets, FitBits are small wireless devices that you wear throughout the day to track your steps, calories burned, and stairs climbed. You can also wear them at night to measure sleep quality. While they don’t perform miracles, I definitely become more mindful of my activity levels and push myself to walk longer distances when I wear it.  And if you’re competitive by nature, it’s also quite fun to track your progress amongst a group of friends!

To be honest, I’d been neglecting my FitBit for a while after I lost my charger a few months ago.  The good news is that I found it, and the even better news is that Tory Burch is planning to launch a pretty cool line of FitBit “jewelry”. They’re not on sale just yet, but you can pre-order by clicking any of the small square icons below. I’ve definitely got my eye on the pendant necklace…

One of the biggest problems I have with my FitBit is remembering to put it on. But I think having it concealed within one of these pretty designs would help a lot in that department.  If the prices for the Tory Burch designs seem a little too steep (or if you’re like me and just can’t wait for the line to drop!), I also found some cute options while browsing Etsy.

From Google Glasses to smart watches, I’ve noticed the concept of wearable technology gaining a lot of traction over the past year or two.  I’m absolutely a gadget-girl at heart, so I’m very happy to see that manufacturers are starting to pay more attention to form factor.

Do any of you own a FitBit? What are your thoughts on wearable technology in general? Do you see it more as a trend or a glimpse into our inevitable future?

It seems like I’m on a roll this week with my nautical-themed outfits!  This is yet another another frock that brings back vacation memories as I bought it for my trip to Quebec City last summer.  I had been pining away for a Lilly Pulitzer dress but couldn’t justify the steep price tag since we were saving up our pennies for vacation.  Luckily, the fashion gods smiled upon me, and I happened upon a Lilly Pulitzer flash sale on RueLaLa.  I wound up scoring two dresses for under $100!

Speaking of bargains… I scooped my fancy new kicks on a thrifting excursion last weekend (you can check out my favorite NYC thrift store haunts here).  Can you believe these gorgeous Ann Taylor espadrilles were only $20, brand-new with tags?! I’m still pretty geeked over them and can’t wait to wear them all over the place this summer.

And what about you guys? Scored any great deals lately? I’d love to hear about them.

I bought this nautical print dress specifically for a cruise last summer, and I’ve enjoyed wearing it ever since. I usually reserve it for festive occasions, like the 4th of July.  But I was feeling a little playful last week and wore it just ‘cuz. After all, there’s never a good reason to let a cute dress go to waste!
