It felt like the perfect crisp cool Fall day yesterday in Brooklyn. After church, we brunched at Piquant. I haven't been to Piquant in a few years, and wondered why I hadn't. Delicious food, affordable brunch and bottomless mimosas - I made a mental note to come here for brunch more often. After brunch we spent some time outdoors enjoying the cool Fall air. We then spent the rest of the evening at Weather Up, which has quickly become one of my favorite places for cocktails and conversation in Brooklyn. It's cozy, it's intimate, and drinks are tasty. It's the perfect hideout for a date or intimate conversation. I like to come here to relax and unwind.
In the Fall, I like to pair my jeans with whimsical vey feminine tops. I don't wear jeans often, I prefer dresses paired with tights so when I do wear jeans I like a whimsical blouse and standout accessories.
By the way, don't you just love backpacks? They are so efficient for us women on the go.

I wore this look to dinner with a few friends the day before New Year's Eve. During dinner we spoke about some of our goals that we wanted to acheive in the new year and behaviors we wanted to implement to enhance our lives. That dinner conversation provided the inspiration for this post.

It's the season of giving! Enjoy my holiday gift guide for her, which features some of my personal favorite products.
f I could choose a winter brunch uniform then it would be a sweater dress and over-the-knee boots. The look is both comfortable and chic for me and if I decide to wear tights with this look, I opt for something fun (kinda like the purple tights I'm wearing below).
The title of this post pays homage to a quote I read a few years ago. It's pretty self-explanatory, if you yearn to receive something in your life, then give that thing you seek to receive. What is it that you crave more of in your life? Is it more love? friendship? kindness? blessings? Turn that around and think about how you can be more loving, kinder or be more of a blessing to someone.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently got engaged, and as promised, I'm sharing our proposal story with you on my Youtube channel. On October 21, 2017, the man of my dreams asked me to marry him and I said YES. Hear all about how and where it happened in this video about our proposal story.
Last weekend as I posed to take outfit photos for the blog, it started to rain, so I decided to make my umbrella part of my overall look. Why? Because that's real life and like life sometimes we have to adjust our plans to fit the circumstances.
