October has been full of fun birthdays, last minute costumes, awkwardly hot weather, and fun experimentations with fashion. What has been rocking my world and been keeping me very busy is deciding to write more blog posts. I’ve decided to step up to the challenge and post twice a week. To some fashion bloggers that might not seem like a lot, but I decided I have to post more than my normal weekly post. Who knows, maybe I’ll finally be able to start a “Friday Finds” series.
As for my favorites…
Favorite View: Brooklyn Bridge view from Watermark
My friend, Courtney, had the brilliant idea of going to Watermark for her birthday. Watermark was hosting their annual Octoberfest filled with tons of beer and $18 pretzels. It was a day filled with good views and even better company. What is not to love about an event like that?
Favorite Post: “Camouflage: The Most Underrated Pattern in Fashion“
I oddly love finding out the history of fashion and how certain styles come to be. For this post, I decided to look into the history of camouflage. Weirdly enough, I found out that camouflage first made its way into the fashion scene because of Vogue. Did you know that there are more than 19 different patterns of camouflage? Yeah, me either.
Clothing Piece I’ve Been Levitating Towards: Embroidered Jeans
If you couldn’t tell from my last post or my most recent Instagram… I’m hooked. It took me one pair of these magical jeans and I already want to order 12 more. I literally want to order this same pair in black. What is wrong with me? Please, someone convince me to buy something else so that my jean drawer still has the ability to close.
Audiobooks I’ve been loving: “#GirlBoss” by Sophia Amoruso and “Leave Your Mark Land Your Dream Job, Kill it in Your Career, Rock Social Media,” by Aliza Licht.
As some of you may know, I commute and hour to and from work every day. Besides the fact that you could probably see stress wrinkles already forming on my young, twenty-year-old body, you would never know how much I drive every week. That is because I’ve found the magical app “audible” from Amazon. No, I’m not sponsored but I should be at this point. This brilliant app allows me to download all of these fantastic books. This month I was focusing on self improvement so I downloaded Sophia Amoruso and Alizia Licht’s books. Unlike most self-help books, these two authors know how to write helpful information while packing the books filled with funny, personal stories. I hope that by listening to these two books that my inner Girl Boss will break free… a girl can only hope.
Favorite Instagram Stories: Honeygrow in Hoboken, NJ and Wednesday’s Table in Southold, NY.
I’m usually not one to say a picture says a thousand words, but in this case it totally does. Just looking back and these photos is making me hungry. Honeygrow is a build-it-yourself salad or stir fry place. Wednesday’s Table is a restaurant that isn’t open on Wednesday’s and serves delicious scones, sandwiches, gyros, and wraps. Ugh, my stomach is grumbling.
Favorite Quote of the Month: “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory,” Dr. Seuss.
