the last few...weeks!

so much has happened recently! which i'm sure you assumed, given the lack of posts. my job has been keeping me ridiculously busy and any bit of free time i've had has been consumed with weekends away, dinner with friends, FNO (!), and, luckily, i've been able to squeeze in some relaxation time too.

FNO at Macy's Union Square was so much fun! there were up and coming designers featuring their newest pieces, a custom denim bar, diy nail art demos, mini-makeovers, and of course...a ton of new fall clothes! i must admit, i caved and bought a few things...i'll be sure to share as soon as i get to wear them!

the next weekend i was lucky enough to be able to take my first trip to tahoe. i hadn't been yet, and it was so incredibly beautiful. we enjoyed the warm weather, the food & wine festival, and roaming around the trails.  i already can't wait to see it this winter, covered in snow!

here's a little photo update on what i've been up to lately...

...for the most delicious belgian waffle at the log cabin (definitely must try it for breakfast if you're in north lake tahoe!)...

...then back to the resort for a little jog before heading home-how gorgeous is that view?

back home! a sweet message near the bridge.

i've been reading fashion magazines since i was in the fifth grade and i've always dreamed of attending new york fashion week. now that it's upon us (eek!), i cannot wait to see what the designers have in store!  over the next week, i'll be following some of my favorite designers on and of course checking in on my favorite bloggers who are lucky enough to be attending this year (check out some of them on my daily routine)!

now, while i'm ridiculously excited to see what the big trends for spring '13 are going to be...i have to admit that i'm slightly preoccupied with some of my favorite fall trends at moment, as i haven't even gotten the chance to wear most of them! here are a few that top my list of must-try trends for this season:

top five for fall
1.  leather   
3.  peplum 

these are just a few of my favorite things for fall (the list could go on and on, let's be honest).    the best part about these five though is that they can all be appropriate for work and for play.   i might try the peplum top with a pencil skirt during the week, then pair it with a pair skinnies and the cap-toe pumps for a fierce weekend look.  

what are some of your favorite trends for this season? is there anything you can't wait to buy + try?
