shades of green
top: joe fresh | jeans: zara | wedges: sam edelman | purse: melie bianco | necklace: f21 | shades: marc jacobs | watch: timex Just a quick Friday post showcasing shades of my favorite color. Peep my little man face in the top picture :) he snuck his little butt in there! Wishing you all a happy and fun weekend, enjoy the weather!! xxx, tsb
dress: mystique boutique | shoes: zara | purse: melie bianco | shades: d&g | necklace: premier designs | ring: jewelmint Meet my new favorite Melie Bianco bag that I have not been able to put down since I purchased a few weeks back. I’ve changed purses a few times since but every couple of days I circle right back to this beauty. The color is the perfect tangerine orange (the...
mustard & gingham
top: forever 21 | pants: h&m | flats: steve madden | shades: d&g | necklace: etsy Surprisingly these mustard pants have served me very well since I bought them last fall. You’d think that the color would be limiting but actually they go with almost anything…almost! And well, this shirt has also seen its wear a little more often than I’d like to admit! But I guess...
not so mellow yellow
blazer & top: zara | jeans: pacsun | shoes: anne klein | bag: mango | scarf: h&m | shades: d&g I love how something as simple as a yellow blazer can transform the look of an outfit from drab to fab! The bright yellow was especially necessary on this dreary Friday. These pictures were taken on one of my weekly “date nights” with my dear old bean Christelle (yes, we...
top: macys | jeans: uniqlo | shoes: old navy | shades: d&g | watch: timex | necklace: spike the punch Just a quick Friday post to say hello and show you an outfit I wore a few weeks back. I know I’ve been slacking with my posts lately but to be honest my outfits have been pretty lack luster these days what with the cold rainy weather we’ve been having. Back to regular posting...
Pops of Color
dress: banana republic | blazer: loft | shoes: urban outfitters | purse: zara | belt: f21 | shades: D&G The weather in NY these days is so up and down, I can’t even deal. The only way I know how to keep my spirits up is by wearing lots of pops of color! This day was actually mildly warm, which explains the bare legs but these photos were also taken early last week and since then...
dress and leggings: american apparel | bag and shoes: zara | belt: h&m | necklace: forever 21 This color combo was not intentional, I had actually been wearing this little mini tote for a few days prior and in my usual morning rush didn’t have time to switch purses. At first I wasn’t really thrilled with the “Christmas” combo but looking back at the pictures I...
polka dot top knot
Polka dots are like my stripes. I love them in all shapes, colors and sizes. I think they add just the right amount of punch to an outfit and they always feel very ladylike. I also am very much enjoying the top knot trend. It is the perfect solution for bad/lazy hair days, which if I’m being honest, happen quite often for me especially now since my hair is in an awkward middle stage. I...
walking on sunshine
top: old navy | skirt: lauren conrad via kohls | shoes: elle via kohls | belt: target | watch: michael kors What you are seeing right here is a milestone. It was the first day of this year that I stepped outside with no tights AND open toed shoes. double whammy. I was a happy happy girl basking in the warm 80 degree sunshine. And what better way to celebrate the warm weather then to wear...
cardigan + floral pants: h&m | shoes: zara | watch: michael kors As I’m sure we’ve all seen by now, along with neon and pastels, florals are everywhere this season. Honestly I think florals are just a spring season staple and not necessarily a SS12 trend but this particular spring I’m all about the floral print trousers and it was quite a mission to find the perfect...
pink lips & leopard print
blazer & top: lauren conrad via kohls | pants: mango | scarf: h&m | bag: michael kors | shades: kate spade I love the mauve tones of this outfit. The subtle pink blazer mixed with the leopard print balance each other out nicely in my opinion. Sometimes leopard print can look a bit loud (which, don’t get me wrong, on occasion I love and definitely rock in some of my outfits)...
coat: talbots (buffalo exchange find) | top & skirt: ann taylor loft | boots: forever 21 | tights: kohls | belt: h&m | bag: pour la victoire | shades: kate spade These pictures were taken awhile back when it was still chilly in NYC and flowers still hadn’t started blooming. It was kind of rainy and gray outside so I decided to throw on this bright red coat to brighten up my...
top & coat: old navy | pants: zara | necklace: thefleetcollection (etsy) | shoes: lauren conrad | shades: kate spade | ring: jewelmint | watch: michael kors I know that in color theory purple and green are not considered complimentary colors but in Christina’s world of fashion, they are indeed. They also both happen to be my favorite colors and I think they pair rather nicely...
top + skirt: american apparel | belt: f21 | flats: tory burch | bag: rebecca minkoff | shades: kate spade | earrings: express (old) | watch: michael kors | bracelet: spikethepunch | ring: premier designs jewelry There’s something about floral and lace mixed with flowy skirts that give off a flirty vibe. Its simple and feminine without trying too hard. I live in skirts and dresses when...
blazer + blouse + pants + ring + clutch : h&m | pumps: aldo | belt: old & gifted | shades: Kate Spade | earrings: borrowed from cousin I definitely didn’t realize until typing up this post that I’m donned almost completely head to toe in h&m. Kind of interesting but just goes to show you that you don’t have to spend a lot to look and feel great!...
be the change
shirt: forever 21 | vest: thrifted | jeans: american eagle | oxfords: zara | belt: target | watch: timex | bracelet: jewelmint Another Jewelmint piece to display. I swear I do wear other jewelry, it’s just that my current favorites all seem to be from there these days. Anyway, I got this bracelet as a free gift with another purchase I had made. Originally when I saw the bracelet online...
coat: bb dakota | jeans: uniqlo | button down: tommy | tank: gap | boots: simply vera | camera bag: vj style | bracelet + necklace: espirit | watch: casio | belt: target Just some snapshots of an afternoon stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge with my cousin. The weather was beautiful, the surroundings even more so and the company could not have been better. Afterwards, we spent...
top and scarf: uniqlo |blazer: boutique | jeans: forever 21 | shoes: h&m | watch: premier | bracelets: espirit, helloberry | necklace: urban outfitters Another casual Friday outfit post. If im being serious - this outfit - or some variation of it is pretty much my staple go to look. Denim or more recently colored denim (more on my obsession with that in a later post), a basic top and a...
sweater: lauren conrad | pants and clutch: zara | boots: nine west (old) | rings: jewelmint | sunglasses: kate spade Sorry for the picture overload, I had a hard time choosing which pictures to post so I pretty much posted them all. You can never have too many pictures of a pretty sparkly clutch right? These were taken on the day last week that we had strangely warm temperatures in New...
Does the Easter bunny bring shoe candy?
one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve Happy Friday all! I dont think I’ve mentioned it here on the blog but I decided to give up shoe shopping for lent, among other things. I know, I know you’re probably thinking how many shoes can you possible buy in 40 days. If you knew me, you’d get it. Shoes are my weakness and the change in season...
X'S & O'S
Skirt & Blazer: H&M | Shirt: Espirit | Necklace & Xo Rings: Jewelmint I just got this jewelmint necklace and haven’t been able to take it off my neck since. It’s so delicate and simple but the 3 layers still adds a unique dimension to the look. It also doesn’t hurt that it goes with everything! On this day I paired it with my former favorite jewelmint piece, the...
instabits of life

Enjoy the bits and pieces. 1. evening out enjoying a late night sweet indulgence at Eddies Sweet Shop 2. showing off my new Timex watch 3. cat...
black & white & peplum
top: h&m | skirt: joe fresh | boots: bakers shoes | bag: michael kors | belt: forever 21 There aren’t many silhouettes that I can get away with wearing, given my petite (ok fine, short) stature but I’m happily embracing the peplum trend thats popped up recently. I find that its rather slimming and adds the perfect feminine/flirty touch to any outfit. Weekends have been...
These pictures were taken this weekend right before sunset (the magic hour) but really this post is just to share some truly wonderful news :) Today the most beautiful baby in all of the world was born. my niece (first, ever)… Virginia Anne Trinidad I can’t wait to see her grow right before my very eyes. She’s already such a beauty I can’t imagine her becoming any more...
shirt: express | sweater: espirit | pants: new york & company | pumps: aldo | necklace: ebay | color block tote: old navy | watch: michael kors I love taking a classic look and jazzing it up with some bright colors. I’ve also always loved the yellow and red pairing. They are both such strong and bold colors and together they make such a great statement that everything else can...
muted tones and mixed metals
sweater: american rag | jeans: gap | boots: target | purse: pour la victoire | necklace & bracelet: HRH collection ombre bracelets and original silver cuff | watch : swatch Most mornings I wake up and immediately gravitate towards color or sparkle or some kind of pizazz but then there are days (like this one) where muted tones just call to me. Sometimes less is more and on this day...

meet me on fifth
sweater: h&m | skirt: mango | clutch: miu miu | boots: sketchers | ring: avon | necklace: l&t Ever since I started working (in the real world) my offices have always been located in and around the 5th ave area. Taking pictures on 34th & 5th was super convenient and I felt right at home. The building behind me in the picture above is actually the Empire State building. I love...
I Wear my Heart on my Sleeve
top+pants: h&m | boots: joe fresh | vest: thrifted | scarf: zara | jacket: worthington from jc penney | bag: vjstyle | necklace: forever 21 | bracelet: espirit Literally, I do. I’m a Cancer so I’m naturally a very emotional and sensitive person so the title seemed fitting. I fell in love with this top when I spotted it at h&m a few months back and have since worn it...

Jewelry Crush: helloberry
helloberry: mini smoothies On one of the many nights I spend far too many hours aimlessly searching through etsy, I came across a lovely seller called helloberry. Helloberry basically sells a variety of different bracelets just like the beauts above! What I love about these bracelets is the size of them (hence the “mini” in the name). They do sell a larger alternative but I was a...
And so my love affair with Instagram continues. I decided to put together a collage of some of my favorite Instagram photos to give you guys a glimpse of my style. In case you couldn’t already tell, I am mildly obsessed with jewelry (well that and my cute pup, chace - check out that handsome manface above!) I digress, back to the jewelry. I am happy to report that my little collection has...
