New York City Studio Apartment Tour Part 3: The Bedroom

Lamps // Side Tables (out of stock-- but similar!)

Yay! The finale of the apartment tour is here. Did I save the best for last or what? Be sure to also watch the video below for more fun details. What did you guys think about the apartment? Do you love it as much as I do? I really can't imagine ever leaving here. It's seriously perfect for what I need. The alcove part for my bed is ah-mazing and did you see all the natural light?! I don't ever need to turn on lights until the sun goes down and I love that.

Hope you enjoyed! What was your favorite part of the series? 



Tory Burch 70% off!

Yay! I love pop up sales like this. Tory Burch is having an amazing 70% off private sale. Now is the time to shop. See my favorites below:

Barbour Waxed Utility Jacket and Barbour Tartan Quilted Vest

Barbour Utility Jacket $399 // Barbour Quilted Vest $129 // Ralph Lauren Oxford (on sale!!) $44 // Jeans (similar) $178 // Shoes (similar) $89 // Ray-Ban Sunglasses (on sale!) $97 // Movado Watch c/ o $371 // BaubleBar Earrings $28

Today is the final post in my Week of Barbour (see look one, two and three here)! I thought it best to finish with my first Barbour purchase, the utility jacket. I found it at a great price last year at Nordstrom and I knew it wasn't one I couldn't pass up. If you read yesterday, the utility jacket wasn't actually my first choice for Barbour (the Beadnell was). I love the fit of the jacket and the more feminine vibe it has. I also knew I couldn't go wrong with the classic olive color.

This is my normal throw-on and-head-out-the-door jacket. I love it and it's a perfect light jacket for the chillier days. When it gets a little colder, I love to layer this jacket with my Barbour vest, for a little extra warmth. This outfit is perfect for days when the weather is up and down because I can take off the jacket and still be ready for a cooler day. 

That's it for this series! Have you checked out the video I made for it as well? It has some (awesome) dance moves, some killer (not really) edits and it stars yours truly!



Navy Barbour Beadnell Waxed Jacket

Jacket $379 // Sweater $79 // Oxford (on sale!!) $44 // Jeans $178 // Boots $298 // Earrings $28 // Watch $229

Woot woot we're back with look number three in the Week of Barbour (see one and two here). This is my most recent Barbour purchase and originally the one I wanted to get first, but we'll get to that story tomorrow. Since I already had an olive jacket (tomorrow's post) I knew this one was going to be my navy #navyornothing. I've only had it for a month or so now and I love it. It's easily my favorite Barbour. It goes so well with everything, it's classic and the tartan lining is perfect. 

I love to pair this jacket with other classic items like my fisherman sweater and oxford. It doesn't hurt that the colors go so well together either. It's the perfect preppy fall outfit. Lots of layers, cool tone colors, riding boots and tartan. What more could a girl need?

Side note: Barbour usually runs small in their coats but not this one! I'm a size 6 and I ordered a 6. This is more boxy and not as form-fitting as the others. The Beadnell was actually made for women after the men's version (the Bedale) became so popular! #FunFact



Red Waxed Barbour Jacket

Jacket (similar) // Sweater $89 // Scarf $99 (box set) // Pants $158 // Boots $109 // Earrings $28 // Watch $295

Welcome back to Day 2 of my Week of Barbour (you can check out the first day here). Today I'm coming in hot with this red vintage Barbour I snagged from eBay last year. I loved the style and I had never seen anything like it, so I knew it had to be mine! eBay is a great place to find more expensive items, but it's even better for finding little gems like this one.

I've looked all over and have only found this jacket that is similar. The one I'm wearing is similar to a classic Beadnell, but it has a few differences. For one, the arms aren't lined with the tartan like the inside body and cuffs. It also has slanted pockets near the chest. 

I paired it with another fun Barbour product, this scarf. I love the Barbour tartan and last year when I was buying a new scarf for winter, I chose this wool one! It came in a really cute box set with gloves so you know I couldn't say no!

You also know I'm all about wearing my white pants in the fall and winter. I think the pants paired with the red of the jacket look so good together! I'm also sporting my new fisherman sweater and I loveeee it. I need it in every color, pronto! 

Don't forget to check out the video below! It's full of me dancing and being weird. 



Barbour Cavalry Quilted Green Jacket

Jacket: Barbour old via J. Crew (this year's version here $279) // Shirt: Thrifted, similar here $59 // Pants: Old similar here $73 or here $68 // Shoes: Tory Burch (on sale!!) $168 // Scarf: Lord and Taylor $62

Welcome to my Four Days of Barbour series! With fall here, I thought it would be a good time to talk about how I style my favorite Barbour jackets. Sure, four might be a little much, but I promise that they all serve different purposes and some came cheaper than you may think ;) But we'll talk about that more later in the series.

To start, I'm sporting this green quilted jacket I snagged from a J. Crew sale last year for $50! Since I bought it at the end of winter, I never found a time to wear it until now! I was surprised at how much I really liked the jacket (sometimes you forget over summer). It's a great lightweight coat and perfect for those chilly fall days. It's also light enough that you're able to wear it under a heavier jacket. 

Be sure to watch the video below (or on my YouTube channel) to see a sneak peek at this week's series!
