Sorry for such a late post.  I must admit that later posts really work for me.  I tend to be very slow moving in the morning so don't be surprised if this is the first of many 5pm posts. We got SNOW this weekend which I am the least bit excited about.  The one thing I realized about living in New York is that Fall is the best time here and it also seems to be the shortest =( I really wasn't expecting to be here through another winter.  Hoping we are cozy in Oregon before it get's really bad here. We spent most of our afternoon scrambling for Halloween costumes.  I think this has become a tradition for us....that and getting out of bed at 10am =) What are your plans for Halloween???

I'm wearing: Dress, cardigan and belt (Forever21), Tights and Jacket (H&M), Boots (JcPenney), Scarf (gift)

The little poncho that could...

 So here's the deal, I'm a complete copycat on this one and I'm not ashamed!! I first saw this lovely poncho on the Daybook and from then on I was on a mission to find it.  I seriously walked from every H&M in Manhattan with the photo loaded on my iPhone.  I felt like a woman who lost her kitten..."Have you scene this? Are you sure? I have a photo " Yes, I went a bit craaazzy hunting for this (especially after walking 40+ blocks) and still having no luck.  The crazy in me turned desperate and I called friends back home, begging for them to join me on this hunt. Enter, my dear friend Amby from Seattle who was up for the challenge and needless to say succeeded with flying colors. All while having a newborn in tow.  I'm the luckiest girl with a pretty poncho all the way from Seattle and a friend I don't deserve =) The things we do for style....or the things I do (I won't lump you into my craaazzy).

I'm wearing: Poncho and T (H&M), leggings (Target), Boots (JcPenney), Watch (NordstromBP), Pearl earrings (Grandma)

The jumper after a meltdown...

I had a bit of a meltdown in front of the mirror yesterday accompanied by the feelings of I have nothing to wear and swearing I see little wrinkles around my eyes. I then threw on this little jumper that makes me feel like a 5th grader on her first day of school and all was well.

I'm wearing: Jumper and Belt (Forever21), Cardigan (Urban), Boots (Kohls)

The 5 dollar dress...

I know what's running through your mind..."that ain't no dress!!" Let me explain before you run off to another blog =) This last weekend we had our good friends/business partners in town Ryan and Susan.  The boys were sweet enough to let Sus and I stroll along 5th Ave. and get some shopping done, but I was having no luck what so ever!! Why is it that when you have money to spend you can't find anything you want?!! Anywho, the boys started getting antsy like all little boys do and Sus showed me this 5 dollar dress she was buying...I decided, what the heck I'll splurge without trying it on (always a big mistake for me).  Of course I get home, try it on and the bust is a little too snug (SHOCKER!!) I then realized with how this dress was cut I could simply fold the top under and I have a snazzy floral skirt!!  Instead of spending the 5 dollars on a train ride back into the city I figure this is still a heck of a deal for a "skinny day" dress and skirt.

I'm wearing: Dress/Skirt: (H&M), Blouse: (Old Navy), Sweater (H&M), Tights and belt (Forever21), Necklace (Vintage), Shoes (Dolce Vita)

P.S. I have extra respect for you ladies who use tripods!! I took a couple of these pictures myself before running inside and crying for hubs help =)

Not so mellow yellow...

I'm quite obsessed with silky blouses this season, this one practically jumped off the hanger and into my hands.  I'm the type of girl that goes to Anthro and buys a new dish or a set of tea towels with the dream of someday being able to afford a top from them.  I splurged on this little lady in the clearance section =)
P.S. Isn't it great when you totally match your nail polish to what you are wearing on ACCIDENT?!? 

I'm wearing: Blouse (Anthropologie), Jeans (Forever21), Boots (MIA), Belt & Necklace (Forever21)

Laying low...

I can't seem to kick this cold so I have decided staying in my sweats all day
watching Pride and Prejudice will do the trick!!
Nothing can cure feeling in the dumps better than Darcy....well that 
and a little hot tea and day-quil.

Breaking out of the stoop...

  This is the first post where hubs and I didn't argue one bit while taking pics!! Aren't you proud?? I am! Normally it goes a bit like this....
Hubs: "Brittany, you need to lighten up, you look all tense"
Me: "Well I need you to direct me or something"
Hubs: "I don't know what I'm doing"
Me: "fine I'll just grab a tripod next time"
Then he does something stupid and makes me laugh and the pics turn out golden =) Oh I love you my goofy talented husband!!!

I'm wearing: Blouse (Old Navy), Shorts (Forever21), Scarf (Forever21), Tights (Fred Flare), Shoes (Dolce Vita), Watch (NordstromBP), Ring (Grandma's)

Foxy Layers....

I don't think a girl can own too many pairs of leggings and over sized shirts!!

I'm wearing: Shirt (Urban Outfitters), Cardigan (Forever21), Jacket (Old Navy), Scarf (gift), Leggings (Old Navy), Boots (Steve Madden)

Vertical stripes, floral and Lake George

Can I just say I am so BEYOND touched with all the responses I have gotten from these little "style posts"....you all made my weekend!!!! You and the beautiful wedding we got to film, the hot weather and Lake George, but in all honesty it means so much to me to get such lovely comments.  The pressure is on and I hope I don't disappoint =)
I'm stoked to wear this dress right into fall...of course with traveling I didn't pack any fun accessories (darn!!) but I feel there are no limits with this little number and the vertical stripes are MY kind of stripes.  Thanks again and a special thanks to Emerald over at Sunday Crossbow for shedding some light onto Little Ditties!!

I'm wearing: Dress (Fred Flare), Cardigan (Forever 21), Wedges (DSW)

Red hot sun flare...

Just when you think it's boot season they predict 83 on Saturday!! This isn't me complaining though, I'll go tight-less for a few more weeks. Nothing says fall like some red hot pants for the season, every time I wear them I swear I have more sass in my step.  Hubs and I are heading to Lake George for the weekend to do a little filming at a wedding.  Maybe I'll get the nerve to take some pics of an outfit with people around....these have all been taken in our back stoop =) Does it get easier fashion friends?? What are your plans for the weekend??

I'm wearing: Peach sweater (thrifted), red pants (Old Navy), shoes (Dolce Vita), Necklace DIY(found here)
