NOTO & Pawsibilities Fashion Night

Last month, I attended an event for a great organization, 
PAWSibilities the Humane Society of Greater Akron at my favorite Akron boutique, NOTO.
It was $10 to get in, and all ticket proceeds went to PAWSibilities.
The night was filled with great shopping, snacks, drinks, and a fun dress up photo booth!

Wall of cute fall dresses.

This is the sweater dress that I bought, and absolutely LOVE.

It was a great event, and will let you all know when the next one is!
Make sure you check out the PAWSibilities website HERE for more info on the organization and their events.
If you live in the Akron area make sure you stop into NOTO boutique!  They get new merchandise all the time :)

Dear NY

Dear New York, I love you!

In September I got to spend a long weekend in NY with my best friends, shopping, eating and going out.
Here are a few snapshots from the weekend...

A few things I found shopping, good basic riding boots from Macy's, and interesting belts & a cobalt blue hobo bag from Anthropologie.  In the photo on the bottom left, these my friend Jen wore necklaces styled by me.

Bought a great fall skirt from the Rachel Roy collection for Macy's.  I wore it to work recently styled with tights, boots and a denim shirt.

I stumbled upon an AMAZING macaroon place on the upper east side, called Laduree.
The macaroons are flown in from Paris daily, and are quite heavenly!!

This was a gorgeous day in Central Park that I spent with my friend Ann Marie.  
Best friends obviously have matching Ray Bans :)  
I just love the top picture of people "sailing" mini sailboats in the pond.  Days like that make me so happy!

Just another wonderful weekend in the books.  

Dear New York,
Until we meet again!

Peplum Craze

FIRST of all, just want to apologize to all of my followers that I fell off the face of the earth!  I was traveling a lot the past month, but no excuses, won't happen again!!

The Peplum is a trend that started in the spring, and has exploded everywhere this fall.
The flare at the waist can be very flattering on many body types, and give you that hourglass appearance.
I wore this look for a date night. It was rather warm that night, so wore wedge sandals (would now rock this with booties and a cardigan).

Peplum Shirt (TJ Maxx, cute one here), Denim (Levi's Curve ID), Wedges (Aldo), Chain Strap Handbag (similar here)

A closer look at the shirt details and necklaces...
Arrow Necklace (stella & dot), Choker Necklace (vintage, but similar here)

Thank you SOO much for reading! There is much more to come this week on my trips in September to NYC and San Fran.  Also a post on a great event I had the privilege to be invited to for a great cause, PawsAbilities!!
