Happy Saaaaaturday!

I hope you had suuuch a lovely saturday :)

I wanted to share this quick look because I love love these colors. I’m pretty sure this dress is supposed to be a sweater dress but I really like to wear it with denim. I love the look of a long top over denim; so cute.

See you Monday!!

Tee: Anthropologie / Denim: Mother / Jacket: Zara (similar here & here) / Booties: Jeffrey Campbell / Bag: Stella McCartney / Sunglasses: Le Specs

Happy Monday!!

I hope you are enjoying your Monday off :)

When I saw this tee at Anthropologie I had to get it immediately. I love anything with subtle embroidery – especially if it says something cute. And it was affordable! Such a win. I also recently purchased this Jacket from Zara. I’m always hesitant to spend more than $100 (or usually close to $100 haha) on a single item at places like Zara or H&M. I know the quality is not worth $100 at all buuuuut this Zara does have a reputation for making some pretty good outerwear. The first time I saw it in the store I didn’t get it but after a few days I was still thinking about it so I knew it would be a worthwhile investment so I went for it!

Also when it comes to H&M, Zara, Forever 21, or whatever your fave ‘fast fashion’ shop is, I almost always order online. I know that in those stores a million people may have tried on what you are about to buy and it probably was thrown on the floor or was crumpled in a pile with a ton of other clothes at some point. When I order online I know that no one else has tried it on and its perfectly clean!

One last pro-tip: when you get denim that has frayed hems but they’re too long or you’re wearing high top boots (like I am in this look) fold them up once so you can still appreciate the fray while rocking whatever tall shoe you want!

See you for wednesday trendsday :)

Happy Friday!!

So I’m not really a big jean jacket person but I have ben loving the pieces that Gap has come out with recently – and I’m not really a Gap person either! They also have some pretty cute shoes and other basics; go check them out if you haven’t recently.

When my photographer Bri and I were shooting this look on a cute corner in the West Village this huuuge group of tourists came walking by led by a tour guide. They stop on our corner and the tour guide starts telling the group that the corner we were all on is the one that the characters on Friends lived at and the little restaurant on the corner was supposed to be Central Perk. I looked at the street signs on the corner and immediately recognized the Bedford St. & Grove St. from the countless scene transitions from the show. I’m such a huge Friends fan so I was pretty disappointed in myself that I didn’t recognize where we were before hand!

The things that happen to you in New York City. Also the restaurant on that corner – pretty sure it was called Little Owl (?) – looked super cute and I def need to go to brunch there soon.

See you Monday! :)

wedtrend-7flats

1. Loafer
Every fashion girl owns this Gucci loafer. Whether its the slide version or the embroidered version, there’s no doubt that a cute loafer is a must have flat for your wardrobe. If you can’t afford to splurge upwards of $600 on Gucci loafers there’s some super cute look-alikes that I’ve linked below!

2. Thick-Heeled Sandal
Okaaaay so this isn’t technically a flat haha but with a thick heel and your foot strapped in, they’re almost as comfortable! Everyone can use some lift now and again and this is a great option in the warm weather – especially to show off a cute pedicure. I love thick heeled sandals like these.

3. Animal Print
Its always a little risky when going for that animal print, but one of the safest versions is in your shoes. Especially a snake or alligator print that has subtle detailing and neutral colors. I’m also suuuuper into a bit of leopard print on the feet! I definitely need to invest in some cute leopard print booties.

4. Lace-Ups
Looove me a good lace-up. It’s the perfect detail to tie (literally) an outfit together. Although these flats look best with shorts or a cute skirt, you can totally roll up your jeans to give room for the tie.

5. D’Orsay
If you’re tired of a boring ballet flat, the d’orsay is a perfect solution. The subtle detail is so pretty and feminine while still giving you the advantage of easy to wear and comfortable flats. Madewell always has some good d’orsay styles on hand.

6. White Sneakers
Nothing says warm weather like a pair of white sneakers and some cute shorts. These are perfect for every day and almost any outfit. I love that you can throw on a pair of sneakers with a dress or some grungy jeans. Can never go wrong.

7. Espadrille Inspired
Okay another non-flat haha sorry! I just thought these espadrille-inspired wedges were so cute and perfect for warm weather strolling. I don’t technically consider these heels either since they’re so easy to walk in and comfy. Don’t be afraid to throw these on all day – you’ll totally feel fine! And look super cute :)

Happy Monday!

Even though I didn’t get as much sleep as I would have liked last night, I’m feeling really good today for some reason! It is soooo freezing in NYC today – its the wind that kills!! Nothing too exciting on the agenda for this week, just looking forward to that long weekend and planning my wardrobe for an upcoming tropical getaway!!

Everyone has a color that looks super good on them and is like ‘their’ color. For me, that’s emerald green. I love turtlenecks (if you couldn’t tell) and when I saw this one in my fave color at J. Crew I had to get it (plus it was on major sale yay!). Its super comfy and a great basic to throw on when its cold out.

Also I’ve been randomly obsessing over this belt again. I keep throwing it on every outfit – I just feel like it tops off every look.

See you on Wednesday!!

Happy Fridayyyyy!!

So happy its finally the weekend! I can’t wait to relax allll weekend!

Not going to lie I am having major FOMO seeing all the amazing pics from New York Fashion Week. I’m so sad I’m not able to attend any events this season but I’m definitely going to next season! The snow storm yesterday was magical and it slowed the city down which felt much needed even though it was freeeeezing today.

What are you guys up to this weekend?!

See you Monday :)

Sweater: Banana Republic (similar here & here) / Denim: J Brand / Boots: Vince Camuto / Clutch: Louis Vuitton (similar here & here) / Sunglasses: J. Crew

Happy Monday!!

Can I just say that Banana Republic has some super cute sweaters at really great prices. I literally got this sweater for $30. The sweaters always start out a bit expensive but hold out because almost all of them go on sale, like this one did! Definitely am going to have to invest in a few more :)

I decided to take the morning off this Monday and rest and enjoy my workout. I feel its important to get a good start to the week in order to really tackle it. Nothing too exciting planned this week – just braving the NYC rain & snow!

Also – this clutch actually is an insert of a big tote I got from Louis Vuitton. I love it because I only use the tote to carry around my laptop (or clothes for shoots haha) and the little insert is so perfect for when I don’t feel like carrying a huge bag. I just throw my phone and cards in there and I’m ready to go!

See you Wednesday :)
