The Perfect DENIM Shirtdress



Anthropologie dress
Steve Madden sandals (old but love these)
Ray-Ban sunnies
Michael Kors watch
Target bag (old but love this one)

Is this the most comfortable dress in the history of ever?  Why yes, yes it is!  Does it have pockets and twirl perfectly? Why yes, yes it does! With a pop of red does it become the greatest dress for your 4th of July parties? Ahhh YES!!  Basically this dress is everything and I'm in love. #cantstopwontstop

Where have I been??


Oh hey there!  Remember me?  Yep, I'm still alive & well here in NYC!  Since my last post (let's just pretend it wasn't 7 months ago, k?) I've fallen in love. You read that right. I have a new love now - YouTube.  You might remember that I made a few videos before to supplement this blog.  As much as I loved it then, it's gone to an entirely new level.  Do I know that I'm literally 10 years late to the game? Absolutely, but I don't mind one bit!  I am feeling refreshed and completely creative again! It's an incredibly exciting thing and I would love to bring you along for the journey!

Go ahead and pop on over to the YouTube page!  You'll find that those old videos are gone and it's ready for new beginnings!  In fact, I've started a fun vlog series called Summer in the City where I spend the next 3 months challenging myself to get out and explore NYC - the amazing city I've called home for nearly 2 years now!  The first video is up now so go check it out! You can also expect to see fashion, beauty & lifestyle videos!

So what does that mean for this place?  No worries - it's not going anywhere.  I will soon be posting fashion and beauty posts again but be sure to subscribe to the YouTube channel as that's where the majority of my content will be coming from!  I hope you love the videos as much as I do! 

Oh yeah!  I'm on Snapchat now and am completely obsessed!  Follow me - opalandviolet

Since Monday's post was more of the holiday gift guide genre, I thought today would be a great day to share an outfit with you!  I've been really loving some neutrals lately that are - surprisingly - not black!  Now, I type this while wearing black tights, black boots & a black vest - so let's not get carried away and think that this is an everyday occurrence!  But I have been making a conscious effort to break out of my comfort zone and it seems to be working!

I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving tomorrow!  I'll be enjoying mine here in NYC with my hubby - and with a big giant cupcake for dessert because tomorrow is also my birthday! Yay!!
