Ted Baker Leather leggings

Astoria in Heels leather leggings

I found the perfect leggings and you can't get me out of them!  I bought these front leather panel leggings from Ted Baker and I have worn them every weekend so far.  Even though it has been warm, these are still comfy and perfect for fall.  This time that I wore these pants, I met up with a close friend for brunch in Soho and paired these pants with an over-sized sweater from one of my favorite local boutiques in Astoria, Hanger.  I just bought these maroon booties from JustFab and the cutout makes them standout from all other booties I am used to seeing.  The color is even nicer in person than what I expected when I purchased them online.  This outfit was casual enough for brunch but also fun and perfect for catching up with a good friend.

I kept my accessories simple with this black clutch and my starfish from Amrita Singh.  Remember this from last month, well it will be on heavy rotation all through fall.  Also, I wore these leggings again recently for a birthday party and I just changed up the top, switching to an all black sweater and faux fur vest.  I plan to find many more ways to style these pants!  

Thank you for reading,

Happy Thanksgiving!!!



Thanksgiving New York outfit Astoria New York

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  I hope each of you are enjoying a fabulous meal of turkey, gravy and all the sides with family and friends.  I am spending it here in NY with my husbands family and there is so much food...I love it!  My aunt wakes up at 4 in the morning to get everything ready.  I can't even image how she does it all!  The food is always superb and having everything together is always a great time.

There is so much for me to be thankful for.  My health and my family's health are number one!  Knowing everyone is doing well and that I get to spend every day with my favorite person in the world, my husband, makes me very thankful.  I love fashion and styling and that is what prompted this blog.  It is one of my passions and I am so thankful for how far it has come but I know that it is doing so well because of the support I get from my husband.  He helps me with everything I do, encourages me to do better, gives me great advice, and is one of my biggest fashion critics!  I am thankful not just today, but everyday, for him!  He is my rock and support and my biggest cheerleader!  

What are you most thankful for?

Uniqlo Plaid Coat

Uniqlo fall call Astoria In Heels

The leaves have fallen and the air outside is crisp.  Fall is in full swing and I haven't enjoyed it more than this year.  I am settled into my new apartment, finally with a job I am happy about and loving married life.  This Autumn is mine and I'm enjoying it fully.  I am always exploring the neighborhood and this season is no different.  Strolling through scenic Astoria Park, frolicking among the leaves, and just enjoying the serenity are my current weekend pastimes.

   I enjoy these weekends even more with my new Uniqlo coat.  I don't own many plaid pieces but I quickly jumped on the opportunity to own this one.  All of my coats are solid colors so I am very pleased to finally add something different to my coat closet.  I have been wearing this nonstop since these neutral plaid colors go with practically everything.  It is great for work as well as for a night out.  This week, I paired it with my office attire made up of Theory slacks, a pink Equipment blouse and my Amrita Singh Rock Star Pendant which is currently on sale now for 50% off on their site.  My new fall coat makes me very happy!  What is your favorite fall purchase right now?

The Red Holiday Party Dress

Herve Leger Red dress Astoria in Heels

Holiday season is coming upon us and its always a question of what are we going to wear.  For me, this red number is always the right answer.  The color alone is why I love it so much.  This is one of my favorite dresses.  It is a Herve Leger that I picked up for my birthday last year.  It fits snug and is very flattering.  I always feel my very best in this dress.  I wore gold accents, an Alexis Bittar bangle and earrings and gold watch to let the dress stand out on its own.  For the holidays, have fun with your outfits and make sure they make you feel your best!  Look out for more holiday outfit ideas coming soon.

Putting on the Ritzy!!!

Fall outfits in Astoria New York Astoria in Heels

Fall weather is in full swing and its time to pull out the boots and sweaters.  I am a big fan of blue for fall since it is so versatile and classic.  The monochromatic look is the best backdrop to my Amrita Singh necklace.  You have seen me wearing her pieces before and I love her jewelry style.  I've updated my collection of Amrita Singh jewelry with this pink and blue Ritzy Statement necklace!  It is the best combination of my two favorite colors.  This necklace will make any outfit stand out!

The designer, Amrita Singh, infuses traditional Indian jewelry with a modern flair.  Her pieces are exotic and artistic and are known for their sparkle and shine.  I have a variety of pieces, from statement necklaces, rings, bangles, and earrings.  They compliment each outfit and is always my standout piece.  I am sure to receive numerous compliments when I wear her jewelry.  This high quality line is perfect for each woman who wants to stand out and is excited about jewelry.  They make dressing fun and uncomplicated.  

I had the honor of meeting the designer, Amrita Singh herself and explore the showroom.  You can see the immense aesthetics in every piece.  These are items that are timeless and unforgettable.  You can see me below wearing one my very first Amrita Singh statement necklace with the designer. This was a dream come true and I am excited to partner with such a renowned brand.   

Make sure to take a look at their site for their new fall collection and enter below for your chance to win this necklace!!!

Blue Poncho

Astoria in Heels poncho fall trends

Ponchos have made a big comeback this fall and I am loving them.  If you don't own one yet, I suggest one that is monochrome to allow you to mix and match with a variety of items.  They are simple, easy to wear, and provide the right amount of warmth for this fall season.  I actually purchased this one last year and didn't get as much wear out of it as I would have liked.  With this years warms temps, I wore it to the local museum and did't have to bother with a jacket as well.  I kept it simple by pairing my blue Banana Republic poncho with blue jeans and just added a pair of over the knee boots, another great trend showing up again this fall.

With these two items in your closet, a poncho and over the knee boots, you will be ready to tackle fall.  They are easily becoming my favorite staples.

Thank you for reading,
