Diane Von Furstenberg Zarita Dress // Calvin Klein Vivian Sandal // Anjolee Eternity Band (c/o)

I love a classic, black dress. I usually go the simple route, and never ever like to over accessorize a little black dress because I think it speaks for itself. The lace detail on the arms, neckline and hem of this dress is just to die for, why add anything else!? That's why I thought my Anjolee eternity band would be perfect to complete the look. It adds the perfect amount of sparkle to my hand without it being overbearing. It is seriously the most gorgeous ring - I find myself having a hard time taking it off. I love that it can be layered with other rings or just worn alone.

Anjolee carries an extremely large amount of different eternity bands, all of which are completely customizable to your needs (metal type, carat size, and gemstone or diamond choice). Check out their eternity band selection here, and some of my favorite LBD picks below. By the way, all the dresses pictured below are 25% off today (use code INTHEFAMILY14). Happy hump day!

My first week in New York has been a total blast - full of wandering, exploring, a little shopping, and lots of eating. Yesterday, I spent the entire afternoon outside because the weather was incredible. Had a delicious brunch at Buvette (I highly recommend this adorable little French place - they had amazing patio seating too), wandered Bleeker St. and popped into a few shops. I fell in LOVE with this gorgeous Cynthia Rowley dress... My friends threw me a little welcome dinner last Wednesday at Sotto 13, which had the best mushroom/truffle oil pizza ever. Friday night, we hit The Standard hotel rooftop for some drinks and a view, and boy, what a view - probably one of the best in the city for a rooftop bar. By the way, the bathrooms are the coolest I've ever been in. Saturday, I explored Central Park with a friend. I've never seen a park so busy - people were running, biking, walking and playing. It was such a fun scene. Oh, and I had my first ever cronut. Holy AMAZING.

More to come soon! Happy Monday.
