Day 2 of NYC – OOTD’s and Restaurants!

New York City is my favorite city in the world, so I was thrilled that Caroline and I were able to experience more than one day!

On our second day, we decided to sleep in a bit and get an early lunch after we shot some pictures for the blog. We met a friend who suggested Merriweather, a cute coffee and light bites breakfast and lunch spot located in West Village. Caroline and I both opted for the Mediterranean salad which did NOT disappoint! It was so tasty and just the right amount of food that didn’t make us feel bloated as we continued our trek across the city.

After stopping by Tractenburg and Co. for a meeting, we decided to walk around the city a bit and stumbled upon an adorable Italian-style restaurant called, “Rosemary’s.” We were drawn in by the decór and had some time to kill, so we stopped in for a midday snack. Caroline and I took advantage of their happy hour specials and ordered a rosemary infused lemonade spritzer and it was to DIE for! We loved it so much, we asked for the recipe so we could make it ourselves! We also got some bread and prosciutto which was also seasoned with rosemary. It was the perfect mid-day snack and the most inviting and fun atmosphere!

 

Next, we took a walk around town and headed to “While We Were Young” for an early dinner/another mid-day snack! We were on a hunt for good food and drinks and were not about to be stopped! I had been here before and was so excited to show Caroline one of my favorite spots in the City.

These sunnies have been EVERYTHING since I got them in the mail, they come in a range of colors and you can get them for $60 if you use my code ” tonyamichelle ”  when checking out!

My OOTD for walking around the city:

Wrangler Tank *currently 40% off under $18

Faux Leather shorts I purchased in Japan last year

Rachel Roy booties I found thrifted!

While We Were Young

Featuring blush décor and marble tables, your Instagram feed will thank you for stopping by this quaint cocktail bar. Their drink menu features a “night out” theme, which was fun to order. I had the “while we were young” and Caroline had the “too good for you.” Following drinks we ordered more food of course: garlic truffle French fries, roasted Brussel sprouts and a corn summer salad that were all incredible. We topped it off with some “frosé” (frozen rosé) and could not stop taking pictures of our drinks and the food!

Headed out to the hotel before dinner! Yes, all we did was eat and drink, haha.

Backpack:

Dress: BooHoo (Boutique Rose Metallic Polka Dot Skater Dress)

To finish our food-and-drink-filled-day, we met one of my good friends Adelle @fashionistalab at La Pecora Bianca, an Italian restaurant located in Midtown. We drank wine and enjoyed their homemade, fresh-in-house pasta. It was the perfect ending to a long day and the pasta was incredible! La Pecora Bianca has a cute outdoor seating area where we enjoyed the last bit of sunshine.

Adelle looking PURE fabulous as always!

My favorite color of the season!

Every season I find a color and I usually can’t stop buying it…haha. Truth! Last year I was obsessed with coral and this year lilac is my new obsession. Anyone else find a color and wear it nonstop? I used to be huge into neon colors during the spring and summer and I think the older I get the more I tone it down. Tone it down meaning I’ll go for pastels now. 😉

This Pleated Batwing Midi Dress comes in 3 colors. Lilac, White and Black! I’m wearing a size 4.

It’s currently 50% and under $40!

The last 5 picks are an additional 50% off!

This dress was one of my favorites when I went to NYC in April, I got so many compliments on it! I’m wearing a size 4 and it’s also currently on sale. Above you can shop it and some other of my lilac favorites.

What’s your color of the season?

Shop the latest fashion trends with ZAFUL

I’ve been hearing so much about ZAFUL – a one stop shop online for the latest and greatest fashion trends, for affordable prices. I teamed up with them today to share some of my favorites picks! I will also be sharing some others looks later cause I just placed another order!!

**At the end of this post are some great discount codes to use**

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a new dress, the latest pearl sweater trend or even some pom pom action – ZAFUL has you covered and won’t break your bank.

I’ve been dying over the over the “pearl” trend and I had to get my hands on one of these sweaters. It comes in 3 colors and it’s under $30! I’m wearing a medium. Direct link to shop is HERE!

I’m all about fun patterns and making a statement, which you guys already know. I saw this Mesh floral pattern dress and had to have it. 

How fun is this? The quality on this is LEGIT. I purchased in brown cause I wanted my hair to show when wearing. It comes in black, green and brown!

I styled mine with some hunter green booties. You can add black tights and even do some thigh highs! Again, taking one piece and being able to wear it in multiple seasons is great.

It’s under $20! Runs true to size. I’m wearing a Medium. (I’m 5’7″)

Direct link to purchase is HERE.

Another sweater that I fell in love with is this pink pompom pullover!! I love being able to wear the latest trends and not have to be sad about how much I paid for it when I decide to donate or give to a friend. 

It’s easy to style, I personally wore it with some jeans and sneakers. You could wear black pants and heels, add a statement necklace and you’re ready to go. I love pieces you can wear different ways.

It comes in “one size” – it would fit a S/M perfectly. It’s under $25. 

Direct link to shop is HERE.

These jeans are also something I had to pick up. High waisted destroyed denim!!

Can’t ever have enough good jeans, this fit me like a glove and I might order a second pair.

They run true to size! I’m wearing a size 27 (I usually wear a 27 or 4) They are under $30! They have a few sizes left!! Direct link to shop is HERE.

I also picked up these stunner shades! The Double Rims Pilot Sunglasses in Black, They are under $10. No joke, I was shocked and didn’t believe it at first. They are well made and I’ve been wearing them every other day for the last 2 weeks! Direct link for these sunnies are HERE.

If you’re anything like me with sunnies, I sit on them and lose them, for under $10 you can’t beat it.

Let’s Celebrate the Holidays in Affordable Glam! Esmara By Heidi Klum At Lidl

*This post was sponsored by Lidl – All opinions and outfit ideas are my own 😉 

Heidi Klum is back with Esmara for Lidl and this second collection made my heart skip a beat. You add sequins, velvet, sparkles and faux fur to an affordable price tag and I’m going IN!!! I can’t get enough of this collection. I wanted to wear everything and share everything in one day with you guys. There are so many amazing pieces that I will she showcasing throughout the next month, so keep your eyes on my blog and social media channels. This collection hits Lidl locations on December 7th and will sell out quick!! You can view her first collection by clicking HERE, also search to see if their is a Lidl near you by clicking HERE.

I’m a sucker for a staple piece sweater that you can wear with jeans when out and about during the day, sweats when you’re at home relaxing or running errands and even adding a skirt for a night out on the town. Also a huge fan of when the sweater is only $14.99!! Yep, that’s right. Above you can just image how soft that sweater is, trust me– you need one!

Comes in sizes 2-12. I’m wearing a size 4.

Another favorite piece of this collection is the jumpsuit! There are two different options that she is releasing, the other one I will showcase in a later post. It’s also under $20! It’s $14.99!!!

Comes in “One Size” – I’m usually a size 4 and this fit me.

I added a fun faux fur stole as an accessory to this outfit! It comes in light pink and black. You can adjust how tight or loose you’d like it to be, you’ll see below a photo of how it ties.

I’m wearing a size 4 and is only $9.99!!

A great item to add to a plain t-shirt, dress or jumpsuit like I did. Sky is the limit for how you can use this accessory in your daily outfits.

Heidi designed some GORGEOUS camisoles! Comes in 4 different colors and even 1 velvet.

Since the weather here in Virginia has been getting chilly, I added a plain white t-shirt under mine. Add some fun accessories and you’re ready to go. I went with a black chocker to vibe into my 90’s look. Anyone else love how fashion trends are coming back? I know I do!!

Sizes 2-12. I’m wearing a size 4. Only $5.99!

She designed another 3 pairs of jeans/pants for this collection and yet again — perfect fit! I’m wearing a size 6 in these. They come in Black, black faux jean/leather look and dark denim. For only $9.99 you could get multiple pairs — I know I went back to the store and bought 2 more pairs for later. When I love something, I buy it in every color and multiples — no shame here!!

This clutch is from her first collection and is one of my favorites, I use it all the time!

I love how easy it is to take her pieces and mix -n- match them. You have total control on taking any staple piece from her collections and making it into your own fashion statement or a day to day piece for work or event! I hope you enjoyed some of my styling ideas for her new collection. I also hope to see you at the Manassas Lidl location on Dec. 7th! I will be there helping you style the new collection.

Learn more HERE about Lidl and how they give you high quality for a low price. (You already know I love that!)
