Before & After Sandy

Top: Old, Blazer: Zara, Pants: H&M, Shoes: CL, Necklace: Loehmanns (old) Watch: NY&CO Bracelet: Oia Jules, Sunnies: Ray Ban

So I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago, I was not going to post these because I had already posted the Leather & Prints. These pants are different but are very similar in color so I wanted to wait before posting this look. That was all before Hurricane Sandy hit. My town is still without power and trees are still blocking some streets and roads. I am extremely grateful that I can sit here and work on this post, and that I still have a home. A lot of people in the tri-state area can't say the same.
Below you will find some photos I took while driving around the morning after Sandy while checking on my neighbors and friends who lost communication during the storm.

About my outfit, as you can tell I am obsessed with this leather trend, I saw this blazer at Zara and didn't think twice about purchasing it. This is was the perfect outfit to wear for a sunday night date with the fiancé. The Cord Pants are also on my list of favorite fall trends and the combination of the color and material of these pants are perfect.

Quick note about my bracelet, I had an outfit idea in mind in honor of breast cancer awareness month. I wanted to post at the end of the month as a wrap up and reminder that more and more women are getting diagnosed with breast cancer every day, it is not just an october thing. I found this bracelet that donates $12.50 of each bracelet sold to a breast cancer research foundation. It is such a fabulous little bracelet and it is for a good cause I love it and have been wearing it with everything. Of course Sandy changed my plans for that post as the event I was going to attend was cancelled, but as soon as I get a chance I will post about my outfit for the cure ;)
I hope to get power back this weekend and back to posting more outfits soon.




  1. Wow, I'm sorry to hear you were so affected by the storm. But glad to see you are well.
    I do like your outfit, the blazer is a nice change of pace to the tweed and simple color toned ones you see.

  2. Loving the pants!! I love cords as well! will get some more and in that color too! glad you are safe and sound! again come over if you like :)

  3. I love that blazer. I've seen a lot of camel with leather sleeves, but this is the first gray/leather I've seen, and it's perfection. Great post, and so glad you and your neighbors are ok.
