Spring Colorblocking

Spring Colorblocking by N428 featuring platform shoes

Colorblocking makes me happy. Not only do I love love love bright neon colors, but everything about these colors screams happiness and great weather. I've been trying to find some pieces so I too can jump on the colorblocking train, but I have yet to have any success (though there is a certain neon pink skirt at Zara I've been eying...). 

Anyway, what do you think? Have you been liking this new colorblocking trend or do you think it's too much?

Here Goes Nothing!

 Pants: Forever21, Blouse: H&M, Pumps: Urban Outfitters, Necklace: swiped from Grandma's jewelery box

So, for the last few months I've been reading many, many blogs. They are mostly fashion or outfit blogs, and I've always had the urge to post some of my outfits on this blog too. I know I am no model (by any means), but I think on occasion my outfits can be pretty darn cute! The blogs I  seem to gravitate to lately aren't the ones with models, but with just regular girls anyway (so I thought i'd do the same). So last night with some encouragement from a friend, we decided to snap some pics while we were having drinks on top of the Empire Hotel. (I came straight from work, so please excuse lack of makeup and non-cooperating hair).

Any thoughts? Would you like to see more outfits on this blog?

Apartment Stalking.

Hi all,
So besides stalking fashion blogs daily (well, and wedding ones...), I love looking at home decor and interior design ones as well. Since having my very own apartment to decorate, it's been fun to see what other people do with their very own personal space. A few days ago I stumbled upon http://www.apartmenttherapy.com and was instantly addicted. ESPECIALLY to the "Small/Cool" contest they've got going on. I'm planning on moving into Manhattan (fingers crossed) in a few months when my current lease is up, yet there is one serious thing that makes me scared: SPACE. Everyone keeps warning me that having the 3 closets that I currently have in my apartment is laughable for a NYC apartment. I'm also going to have a roommate...so space will be tight, to say the least. While I'm super nervous about making the transition from having my very own spacious apartment, to a much smaller one with another person in the mix, seeing how these people have decorated their tiny apartments has given me encouragement! Just because it's small doesn't mean it can't be decorated well! Here are some of my favorite inspirations from the contest:

I Found Ants in my Apartment...

...so I focused on things that make me happy tonight!

 Mmm sushi for dinner. (I ordered a TON by accident...guess my eyes were a littleeee too big tonight. Woops)
 3 issues in my mailbox today! Yay for subscriptions.
I started a little DIY project tonight. I'll show everyone my finished product tomorrow!

Hope everyone had a good Monday! 
(and it didn't include discovering a colony of ants in your living room too...)
