Don't you love when you rediscover a favorite? The last time I wore this dress it was Thankgiving and I paired it with navy tights and camel high boots. Gorgeous, but not appropriate for summer. This top was an easy fall favorite and so wearing it as a top for this time of year, seemed like a great idea. The flip & switch doesn't work for every outfit, but luckily, the pencil skirt that I thought to tuck the dress into was long enough to cover the dress - score!

Have you ever doubled up on uses for one of your favorite pieces?

WEDNESDAY WISHLIST: Black Blouses

Best black tops
ONE   //   TWO   //   THREE   //   FOUR   //   FIVE   //   SIX

When discussing wardrobe staples, there are a few things that come to mind. A great pair of jeans, black pumps, and of course your go-to black blouse. Strangely enough, I was inspired to write this post by a new pair of shoes that I just got. My black wedges, seen here are new for the summer and therefore require some planning!

Which black top is your favorite?

WEDNESDAY WISHLIST: Ballerina Flats

Affordable Ballet Flats
ONE   //   TWO   //   THREE   //   FOUR   //   FIVE

Last week when I was packing for my trip to New York, I was seriously stumped. How do northerners do it? In Atlanta, we walk from our front doors to our cars and vice versa. Trying to find stylish and "sensible" shoes for walking in warm weather, proved to be quite the challenge. I had two options, flats or wedges. Of course, I opted for both. Along the ride, I found these adorable flats and had to share them with you all. Which is your favorite?

You might remember this dress from my Wednesday Wishlist post a few weeks ago. I was so in love with it from the first time I saw it and the quality was even better in person. Not to mention that it was under $50! This is, unfortunately, the last of my looks from NYC. It's was so refreshing to shoot somewhere new and see the city vibes reflected in my photos. Maybe this trip will serve as inspiration for more dynamic photo backdrops here in Atlanta. Hm, guess you will just have to swing back around and see!

I hope you all had a fabulous Mother's Day Weekend. Last week flew by between my 48 hour trip to NYC and my birthday celebrations! I am happy to be one year older and ready to take on the adventures this upcoming year including getting married! Quick note about this adorable LBD: I bought it about two years ago thinking that I would find somewhere to wear it, and I finally did. This baby made its debut on Broadway when we hit the town to see Wicked for my birthday! I know that you always hear that Wicked is amazing, but let me be real with you guys for just a second. It is even better than anticipated. Even my fiance who didn't think he would like the show at all - raved about it. From the production quality to talented cast -- the near 3 hours flew by. If you are ever in NYC or Wicked travels to you, be sure to check out the show. It was everything we hoped it would be!

NEW YORK CITY FASHION







SWEATER: H&M - SAME HERE - $18   //   BLACK JEGGINGS: ZARA - SIMILAR HERE - $35   //   BAG: c/o SHOPBOB - SEE MORE BROWN BAGS HERE   //   NECKLACE: F21 - SIMILAR HERE - $42   //   WEDGES: DSW - SAME HERE - $99

We made it! Yesterday, fiance and I landed in the Big Apple and headed straight to a convention for his work. After a long day of meetings, business cards, and brochures we finally got a chance to relax and hit the town. First stop, the cutest little restaurant in the Flatiron District called ABC Cocina. My sister and her sweet boyfriend made us reservations and picked up the check since they couldn't make it down to have dinner with us for my birthday. It was such a nice gesture, but I would have much preferred their company! Luckily, next week we are headed to Philadelphia to see her graduate from business school. After dinner, we decided to head up to the Empire State Building (something we happened to always skip over when we visited NYC previously) and "WOW!" is all I could say. The view really is breathtaking! I managed to convince Sahir that we should do the audio guide which even he admitted was a good idea at the end. I love learning the history behind the places we visit - it's just so interesting to me. I'm always the one who holds up the line because I want to read all of the signs about how long the workers took to build each floor, what materials they used, etc. Whoops. 

We have a full day planned for today too. Be sure to follow along on Instagram at @SimplySabrinanN
