Happy weekend! Great news everyone: Weekly Finds is back! Even though it’s only February, this year has been a whirlwind of excitement and chaos. It’s nice to have my good ole reliable schedule back to normal and start doing what I love, blogging with you! Thanks to President’s Day, we had a shorter week, but I spent most of it catching up on the fabulous collections walking down the runways at Fashion Week! Stay tuned for next week’s recaps of what NYFW trends we’re excited about for next fall. Other than fashion, a big priority this week was trying to stay warm! I can handle snow but these freezing temperatures are making it really hard to leave the house. This weekend, I have two annual events I look forward to all year. Firstly, it’s my friend Jena’s birthday and she always celebrates in style. I can’t wait to put on my dancing shoes and have some fun. Secondly, the Oscars are this Sunday! As you know, our movie reviewer Johnny loves films; did you see his Oscar picks this week? But let’s face it, we only care about the clothes anyways! I will of course have a red carpet best and worst dressed list so get excited for that. I will be live-tweeting the Oscars’ red carpet and show so be sure to follow along here. So, stay warm this weekend and hope these links inspire you!
TRAVEL EXPERT: I’ve always stayed at hotels when traveling, but I am intrigued with Victoria McGinley’s idea of renting an apartment or home instead.
OSCAR FASHION: Are these the Best Oscar Dresses of all time? I may not agree 100% with these choices, but this article definitely has most of my favorites. After Sunday, who do you think will be added to this list?

FIGHT THE COLD: When I moved to New York, I was given an ankle length coat, and it has been a lifesaver! Style Caster has done it again with another fabulous selection of ankle length coats you should own.
JEWELRY OBSESSION: Tassel earrings are my new favorite accessory and A Sparkle Factor thinks so too with this fabulous post. They are colorful, dramatic, and fun. Which one is your favorite pair? Mine are the Oscar de la Renta’s!
DRINK UP: I have unfortunately given up one of my first loves, coffee. However, I am not crazy enough to give up chocolate too. That’s why I was very happy to come across this recipe for Nutella Hot Chocolate on Dearest Darling’s blog!
Have a great weekend!!
