… As is everything in my closet these days. I can’t get enough of red recently. It started with my nails, moved to my lips, and now it’s in every accessory I buy! Move over orchid, maraschino is my pantone color of 2014.

I mentioned in an earlier post about my disproportionate figure (short legs & long torso). It’s why you can catch me in maxis allll summer long. It’s also why I wear heels in even innappropriate situations… the grocery store, the gym, checking the mail (that’s neither here nor there). But why have I been neglecting the midi? The high waist actually gives me a waist and gives the illusion of longer legs. Win-win!

I’m loving this midi from The Girl That Loves’ winter collection; it could go from the office to happy hour without missing a beat. And I need more closet multi-taskers because my New Year’s resolution is to stop looking like crap at work. What’s yours?

I’m excited to let y’all know about my new guilty pleasure, Ador. If Pinterest was my gateway drug, I am full-on addicted to Ador. It’s an online shoppable fashion magazine where you control the content by picking your favorite celebrities, bloggers, and brands. When I see a look I love, I can shop the exact pieces, as well as similar ones selected by Ador’s fashion editors. Coveting that pair of Valentino stilettos that you would have to sell your first born to own? Ador gives you options in your budget.

My favorite feature is Ador’s price alerts. I’d been looking at the above tulle skirt from Urban Outfitters and ‘adored’ it on the site. They let me know the other day when it fell in price and voila! It’s mine now.

And I don’t know what it is about this skirt, but during shooting all I wanted to do was to spin around in circles or hail a cab in Manhattan 😉

You can follow me on Ador here.

Merry Day After Christmas! I can’t believe it’s already behind us. I hope y’all got to relax and enjoy the company of your families. And, if you’re like mine, watch Christmas Vacation (and realize that we are the Griswolds).

I don’t know about you, but I’m just not ready to see the season go. Our house is so warm with these decorations and full of family. Not to mention, the food is the best and I got to spend a whole day in my PJs yesterday!

But put away my PJs I must as it’s time to start planning for New Year’s Eve. I found this festive bow dress at H&M recently and although it is sold out online, it’s still available in stores. I also just picked up this sequin maxi skirt and am on the hunt for the perfect top. Decisions decisions for December 31st!
