Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, February 8, 2016


On Friday night we had planned a date night and then kind of at the last minute just decided to go low key (and less expensive) and head out for Vietnamese food.  Seriously, I could eat this everyday!  I know, I know, all you see are these freaking rice bowls, but they are so good.

Sidenote: this is the boyfriend's sweatshirt which I've made my own.  He also had a navy one, which I've also claimed.  We found them during our NYC anniversary trip (video recap here), but looks like they still carry it.  I love hoodies and sweatshirts, and do have a little collection, but don't tend to wear them out much.  On this night I wanted to be comfortable, warm and casual.  #missionaccomplished 

Friday Finds

Friday, February 5, 2016

Happy Friday!  This week has been a little long, for starters, I kept thinking it was Wednesday on Tuesday, so there's that.  Regardless, I'm really looking forward to the weekend.  

Tonight we are heading out to try a new Asian-fusion restaurant and tomorrow I am doing a photoshoot to help out a friend.  On Sunday we were thinking of skiing but it looks to be super cold, so that might not happen.  And of course, the Superbowl is happening on Sunday and we are having a party!  Hope you have a great weekend!

Love this backless top.

A cool two minute video about English words.

The perfect appetizer to bring to a Superbowl party.

How to Know When to Buy Something

Thursday, February 4, 2016

How many times have you been out shopping, found something you really like, but are torn on taking it to the cash?  Maybe you've been shopping a little too much lately, or perhaps you just aren't sure if the item is 'the one' for you.  How do you determine whether or not you should purchase something?

For me, I think about something similar in my closet, and whether I love that or the piece I'm coveting more.  If it's the latter, I buy it.  

Read on to see what some of my most stylish friends--whom are mainly bloggers--responded when asked how they decide on a purchase...

Place d'Orleans Fall, Winter & Holiday Photoshoot Campaign Photos

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

Hi ladies!  Today I'm sharing the final product of the Place d'Orleans photoshoot I did back in August.  It was a long day of shooting from about 8am to 7pm and we shot three different campaigns: Fall, Holiday & Winter.  We shot at least seven outfits but only four made the cut, which is what you're seeing today.
I'd love to show you the photos if you'd like to see...

Gym Outfit Ideas + Instagram Selfies

Sunday, January 31, 2016


Happy Sunday ladies!  If you have signed up for the A.Co Newsletter, you know I've started a new Instagram fitness account.  I share various exercises and tons of outfits I like to wear to the gym.  It's kind of a 'more real' Instagram where you can get to know me a little better but also we can motivate each other with our workouts.

That said, I know some of you ladies have asked where I've picked up various things I'm wearing so I thought I'd put it all together in a post with shopping links so you can scoop up some of these great pieces for yourself.  Looking good to feel good is half the battle!  #amiright
