Charming Charlie


It was a tough weekend in the ‘burbs. On Saturday, I spent the entire day driving up and back to Rhode Island in the rain for a fun project (All the exciting details on that in tomorrow’s post!). I’m up to great things there but it definitely took a toll. On Sunday, I spent the day working and running errands without a moment’s rest. Looking through Instagram, I got major FOMO when I saw all my friends in NYC having the time of their lives on the “most perfect fall day”.

I think it finally hit me for the first time that I really don’t have many friends out there and it motivated me to try to get out there more. Luckily, I have two different girlfriends coming to visit this week and I’m taking my very first trip into the city for work today. I’m kind of excited to go back from whence I came. Never thought I’d say that. . .

Moving on, I’m developing a love for heeled booties. They’re comfortable, the perfect amount of dressy, and give my short legs a little bit of length. When Charming Charlie wanted to team up for a post, I knew that they would have some fabulous jewelry, but didn’t expect them to impress me with a pair of open-toe booties (for under $40!), my new favorite striped tee, and an affordable oversized gold watch from their Tomboy Chic line.

    Making friends post-college is like dating. I read “MWF Seeking BFF” right after I graduated from college, it’s about a woman’s search for friends in a new city and also talks about the psychology behind friendships. It was such a cool book, I’d highly recommend!

    Aw I know it’s a bit of a transition to the burbs. Perhaps taking a spin class or something similar at your local gym would be a good way to meet new friends. Or even a fun cooking or wine tasting class! Love your olive jeans! And thank you for introducing me to Charming Charlie! Such a great selection at very affordable prices!

    Honestly, I didn’t even know Charming Charlie sold clothing! I’m a sucker for stripes though so I may have to pay a visit. Thanks for sharing 🙂
