Tie Dye

Tie Dye WHAT I'M WEARING // YASSO Faux Leather Jacket // H&M Dress //MIA Boots // CORNELIA GUEST Bag // JUSTFAB Sunglasses So it's warm enough nowadays for dresses but not for sandals just yet.  I couldn't wait to wear this new graphic, black and white tie dye dress I recently picked up at H&M so I threw on some moto style boots and I was ready to go. I have a feeling this outfit will be a uniform for me the next coming weekends.  I LOVE the entire look. I really like wearing maxi dresses on weekends.  They're super comfortable and all you have to do is throw it on over your head and you are dressed and presentable for the day with minimal effort. Notice a trend here on Brooklyn Bliss?  I don't like having to think or put a lot of effort into much of anything.  Everything's got to be easy.  That and comfortable.  I might seem pretty put together but truth is I'm just on auto-pilot and have found systems over the years that work well for me.  In all honesty I'm probably one of the laziest people on the planet.  Truth.

Surviving Ikea

Surviving Ikea What I'm Wearing // TOPSHOP Parka // VICTORIA'S SECRET Jeggings // H&M Tee // CORNELIA GUEST Bag // MIA Boots // NYC STREET VENDOR Beanie After the snowstorm this past weekend, Jim and I spent the entire day on Saturday doing nothing and enjoying the snow day. We actually watched around 6 back to back episodes of Shark Tank. OMG I totally love that show now. Sunday we were back to business on operation Clean House, so it meant we had to do a run to IKEA. Each time we go to IKEA, we know our marriage is meant to last forever because we always survive the trip. We have our arguments and spats while there, but we've learned to instantly identify when it's "Ikea Fever" and scale it back a bit. We persevered, and made it home not only with a new cabinet for our kitchen but also a new rug for our living room and a few other items. Bringing our IKEA goods out of our car and up the stairs into our apartment was a good test of my recent Crossfit training. There was several larger items that were over 50 pounds that I carried up the stairs with no issues at all. In the past, it would have been a major ordeal getting all that stuff into the apartment! This time around it was almost easy. Speaking of Crossfit, I wanted to mention really quick how much I totally love these new Victoria's Secret Jeggings. Since I started Crossfit none of my pants fit because although my waist is much smaller, my quads are now huge. After searching high and low on the internet for the best types of jeans for athletic builds, the common answer was anything with stretch, so I invested in a few pairs of these mid-rise jeggings and don't know why I ever wore normal jeans. They are so comfortable and look the same as skinny jeans. This post is getting really random. Let's keep on this roll. I think this is the first debut of my new hair color on the blog. What do you think? Surviving Ikea Surviving Ikea

Typical New Yorker

I actually took these photos a few weeks ago and never got around to posting them.  I threw this together in a hurry on a Saturday morning.  I realized I had overslept and I was running late to my CSA driver shift.  In order to participate in our local CSA, each member has to volunteer three times over the course of the season.  You have to either volunteer handing out the farm shares or if you have a car, drive the unclaimed shares to the local soup kitchen. I was driving this morning and didn't want to be late.  I've learned that when you're in a rush with no time to think, an all black ensemble is the way to go.  Well, technically I'm wearing gray leggings here but you catch my drift.  Wearing all black is such a typical, New Yorker look and considering we're always in such a rush, I now understand why.  It looks great every time. This particular outfit was ridiculously comfortable.  It was basically like wearing a sweats but way more presentable.

Yoga

Yoga 1 {Chambray Shirt: Old Navy; Striped Dress (worn as tunic): H&M; Leggings: Forever21: Boots: MIA via After 6; Camera Bag: THEIT; Sunglasses: thrifted}
I wore this last weekend to go to yoga and brunch with Tracy.  I knew we were going to head out to eat immediately after class, so I needed to wear something comfortable, yet put together for going to a restaurant.  For yoga, I obviously left the boots in my locker along with the chambray shirt and put them on again when class was done.  It worked perfectly! Now I'm on the hunt for more work out gear I can wear immediately after a workout without looking like a gym rat/slob after.  If anyone has any suggestions, throw them my way! Yoga 2 Yoga 3
