What happened to me?  I always joked I would be a workaholic but the day has come when it’s no longer a thought but a reality.  I remember when rarely was I at the office late or working from home.  Instead I was out, at an event or a party, a restaurant or a dinner with friends.
This jump to NYC was exactly what I wanted and now I’ve become that semi-adult I thought I would be.  Twenty-seven and constantly checking my email, closing down the office and opening my lap top as soon as I walk in the door.  I work in Fashion - not Investment Banking.  This kid needs a vacay, like pronto.
Ahh, let’s check the cal shall we? Ohh.. hmm.. work trip, meetings, work trip, more meetings, work, work, work.   Ohh let’s not forget someone won’t be making it home for Christmas this year.  Maybe in 2014? 
This behavior deserves a present…hmm… what shall it be?

Despite my being a busy New Yorker, it makes me sad that I haven’t updated this once gold-mine of a blog in so long.  So I am going to make an effort (yes, I’ve said that before) to keep this going.  Who knows, maybe my family will call me less if they can read about what I’m doing? Just kidding, Stef. 
Anywho, it’s September in New York.  A wonderful time of year.  The air is crisp but not too cold.  People are outside everywhere enjoying the lovely weather before the snowfall comes.  And the most exciting part of all?  It’s Cat Thompson’s birthday.
Ohh you remember Cat.  That twinkle in my eye that lived in Bawston for so long.  Well, as fate would have it we have been reunited in one of the greatest cities in the world and tonight is her birthday celebration.  
What to wear? Well I’m glad you asked.  Day time might be all about the warm tones and layering, but in New York City the nightlife is about black and red and going coatless while we can.

While this has been a pleasant first winter, I am beyond ready for real spring to start.  According to my little iPhone, New York will actually have some spring time weather this week.

First item on my list of to-do’s: plan the perfect spring outfits.  

I love dresses for the heat in New York.  They’re perfect for the office and so light whilst running to the subway.  If you know anything about me you know my wardrobe is comprised of black, white and tan - however in honor of this fashionable spring I think I’ll throw in a little color.  A floral perhaps? Dare to dream.

It’s now official.  I’m a legit New Yorker.  Like, I attended a New York Fashion Week event and was accepted.  

Tonight I made an appearance at the Kate Spade Saturday x Fab event.  It was great.  Fashionable people.  Fashionable party.  Fashionable drinks.  I’m now so incredibly excited for Spring/Summer.  There were so many cute and oh-so Kate dresses - I can’t wait to get my hands on them tomorrow when they’re live for purchase on Fab.  Between the open back top and the splattered paint dress.. where do I start? How do I choose?  Ahh, simple solution : buy both.

So long Fall, hello Spring.

I’m really feeling this look right now.  Sure, it’s about 10 degree outside so this would be piled under three layers of coat and warmth, but it’ll be under there.  I’ve recently found a pair of leather leggings that would be a true steal, however with my new “I need a Prada bag” mentality, should I be saving my money??
Ohh these grown up decisions sure are getting old very quickly.
