Costume Ball + Highlights

My, what a week! I was in New York City last weekend and at the beginning of this week… it was a blast and a half! Then I had a crazy travel experience to get back home, went straight to work, and had report cards due. Needless to say, I’m happy to have reached the weekend. I’m going to a big costume ball tonight at The Beverly Hilton (I’m sure I’ll be posting my costume on Instagram so follow along!) then scooting up to Santa Barbara on Saturday for a birthday. On Sunday, I’m playing tennis, going to the farmer’s market, and catching up on some work. What’s in store for everyone this weekend!?

Shopping & Sales:

1. Olivia Palermo’s capsule collection for Nordstrom is so her (so naturally I love it!). This vest is a highlight of the collection for me.

3. This romper screams Spring Break.

4. This sweater that I’ve had my eye on just went on sale and is $200 off. Hmmmmm!

5. I’ve been hunting for a pair of leopard espadrilles and I think I found my pair in the ‘Calf Hair Platform Smoking Slipper.’

6. New arrivals at J.Crew and at Banana Republic this week. Boom.

7. It’s a party! Calypso is offering an extra 60% off sale styles.

6. Thank you so much LC Lauren Conrad for the Instagram love. This feature was really a treat!

7. Bopping around New York calls for a visit to the Top of the Rock for Central Park views as well as a stop into the Ralph Lauren flagship store on the Upper East Side.

8. Allison and I had such a successful NYFW + Gal-entine’s weekend!
