Happy Friday!

I am in Europe! Yay!!

Today we are spending the day in a town called Aix-en-Provence in France. Its so cute and quintessential. My sister and I are going to explore some cafes and go to the studio of French painter Cezanne who was from here. Tomorrow we move on to Cannes where we will be for a few days to explore the towns on the southern coast of France. We are doing day trips to Saint Tropez, Nice, and Monaco before we head to Italy! Cannot wait. Follow along on my insta! :)

I had my eye on this sweater blazer for a bit and when I got an email from J. Crew that everything in the store was 30% off I had to go for it. I bought the sweater along with some shirts for my boyfriend when they informed me that the sweater was not part of the sale “because it’s so popular” #annoying but I went for it anyway cause its my fave color and I know I’ll wear it a ton!

There are soooo many sales going on right now! Be sure to check out Shopbop and I’m pretty sure J. Crew is still having a sale as well.

See you Wednesday :)

Dress: Lioness (similar here & here) / Booties: Stuart Weitzman / Sunglasses: Le Specs / Bag: Saint Laurent

Happy Monday!!

Omg how cute is this dress! I discovered this brand Lioness from Australia a while back. They are pretty affordable so I jumped at the chance to get this dress. The only downside is that it literally took almost a month for the dress to come!! Some of their pieces are sold on Revolve though which is always great shipping so maybe start there!

I have been running around doing last minute errands before I leave on Wednesday for Europe!! I am super excited but also kind of nervous! Its a pretty long trip with a lot of planning involved so hopefully everything goes smoothly :)

But I have all my outfits planned thats for sure!! Lolol

See you Wednesday for a hair tutorial! Yay!

wedtrend-houndstooth1

Love houndstooth! It is so chic and adds that touch of edge and to your look with a feeling of Fall. It can be difficult to pull off though. Less is more for sure. Simplify the rest of your look around your houndstooth piece. Technically these Madewell pants aren’t houndstooth, they’re windowpane, but they’re almost in the same category! Haha

I’ve already bought two pieces in this category! Can you guess which?

wedtrend-plaid1

Plaid! Obviously such a classic pattern for Fall and one I always look forward to breaking out. It just doesn’t feel as right wearing plaid at any other time of the year! You can’t go wrong with a plaid button down and I love this one from Madewell with the bow! The colors are so cute.

wedtrend-florals1

Dark florals are an unexpected pattern I am super into this Fall. I think if you add a pair of dark tights to any of these pieces it would be so cute and perfect for Fall. These pieces are also great options if you live in a warm area or if its just still warm out and you want to get into the Fall spirit! Haha

Happy Monday!

How amazing is this location? You would never guess its in the heart of the Financial District in Manhattan! Living in the city I feel like its so easy to forget that we live near the ocean! This was something I really wanted to make happen over the summer was to be near the water more often.

This area is behind the Brookfield Place Mall which is also amazing btw with an awesome food court. There are more restaurants lining the dock area and my boyfriend and I decided to have lunch at the PJ Clarke’s outside one day! It was so blissful beside the water with some delish frosé haha. I definitely recommend visiting this area and the mall – its so nice!

So this sweater is a boatneck sweater which I honestly don’t think I’ve ever owned a boatneck sweater before haha buuut the reason I bought it was because I saw a mannequin with it on in J. Crew wearing it off the shoulder. I’m not sure if it was supposed to be styled like that or if it just slipped down the mannequin haha but I loved the slouchy look so I went for it myself! I also I wear this sweater a lot just one shoulder like I did in this instagram. Its so cozy and comfy now I really want to buy more boatneck sweaters! Haha plus this one is on sale!! Def worth checking out if you’re looking for a slouchy, off the shoulder sweater look.

See you Wednesday! :)

PS: My hat is from Lack of Color (an Australian brand) and they are having a site wide sale of 25% off on September 20th!!

Happy Friday!!

One of my fave brands Sézane opened a store in nyc and I’m so excited about it. I’ve already seen a couple pics from inside and it looks so cute. Last night I tried to go but they were having an event! So sad haha but I’m going to try again today :)

I thought it would be cute to pair my fave Aquazurra pumps with this Zara top. Everyone knows I’ll wear anything blue & white and striped so this top really called my name haha. Its really light and perfect for warm weather. It would also be super cute with a black denim skirt!

See you Monday :)

nyfw3.1

Some of my favorite looks from NYFW this season were monochromatic (one more below) which is pretty surprising since I never really rock a monochromatic look myself! But I am just obsessed with this all emerald look by Jenny Cipoletti, topped off by the matching YSL, ugh just perfect. Althoughhh I am definitely not a fan of the tiny sunglasses trend these ones work with Jenny’s whole aesthetic.

nyfw4

Okay how to dieeeee is this look from the Brandon Maxwell SS18 show worn by Gigi Hadid. Seriously she looks like Cinderella. Plus she’s wearing another trend I love for the Fall: fuzzy sweaters! I love how its styled here with the amazing long skirt. This look is obviously super formal but if you pair it with a more casual maxi skirt you can def rock it during the day. Check below!

nyfw1.1

I was honestly so surprised by how much I loved JoJo’s NYFW looks! She looked so good but I particularly loved this one – again in that monochromatic theme. The colors and stripes are amazing for Fall and I am also loving the blazer and dress pants in general.

nyfw2.1

Loooooved this look from Arielle Charnas! Probably because its all camel, my fave color! It’s just so comfy and Fall. I also really like how all the pieces aren’t the exact same color but similar – it just gives it a bit more of an edge. Recently I am loving pairing sweaters with high waisted pants like this – really flattering and comfy!

nyfw5

Okay this look was like the perfect blend of crazy NYFW look but also doable in real life! Haha I am just in love with this jacket paired with the girlfriend jeans. I will say though I am not the biggest fan of these sunnies! I just can’t get on board with the tiny sunglasses trend. I would pair this look though with a bit more of a casual shoe. Definitely I would still stick with a mule but the ones here are a bit too much for me. Check out what I found below.

Dress: Self Portrait / Bootie: Jeffrey Campbell / Sunglasses: Le Specs / Bag: Saint Laurent

Happy Monday (night)! haha

So I have been a fan of the Korean brand Self Portrait for some time now. I always am obsessed with everything they do because their pieces are just so unique and structured and unlike anything else. When I saw this dress though I knew I had to get it. Honestly its like if I was a dress I would be this one hahah I am so obsessed. I hope I can invest in more Self Portrait in the future because their pieces are just iconic.

See you Wednesday! :)

PS: I linked some more affordable, similar options below :)

Happy Friday!

Crop sweaters were made for that transition time between Summer & Fall when you don’t know if its warm or cold outside lol. I’ve had this one for a while and its my fave color for Fall so I’ll probs never get rid of it! But it is definitely hard to style because it really does require something high waisted. Howeverrr you can slip a silk cami like this one underneath if you don’t have a ton of high waisted pieces to pair this with.

I also happened upon this super cute skirt that has tiny cherries on it! It’s pretty affordable and super comfy. Whenever I am online shopping I always order one size up from what the model is wearing, which I did when I ordered this skirt, but it is a little big! I got a size medium and it is just a touch too big so I decided to keep it. Its just so cute!

See you Monday! :)

Happy Wednesday Trendsday!

Since its September (my favorite month) and its a veryyyy gloomy day today in NYC (also one of my fave things) I thought I’d dedicate this #wednesdaytrendsday to one of my favorite trends for Fall, velvet! I’ve been slowly growing more obsessed with the velvet trend over the last month or so…honestly since I bought these pink velvet Aquazurra’s (number 4). Also MISA Los Angeles, a brand I have been a big fan of for a while now, released their Fall line featuring a ton of super cute velvet pieces.

Yesterday was my boyfriend’s birthday and it was sooo fun! I made him an appointment at the Blind Barber inside of Barney’s where he got a haircut and shave and facial plus whiskey! Very man-spa haha. We had dinner at this restaurant called Minetta Tavern in the West Village and it was sooo great. Such a cool vibe its really small but they play jazz and have amazing service. Definitely worth a try if you’re visiting NYC.

Anyway today we are all tired out from the festivities and have both been working all day! I always want to add more to my Insta story but the truth is I am just at home working on my computer all day everyday hahah but life will definitely get more exciting in the coming weeks as I have some fun trips in the works!

Top: Zara (similar here & here) / Denim: Paige / Booties: Jeffrey Campbell / Sunglasses: Le Specs / Bag: Saint Laurent

Happy Monday!

If you have today off I hope your are enjoying it to the fullest :)

I got this top from Zara because I really don’t own anything like it. I hardly go for polka dots or this shape of top so it was definitely a little difficult to style it but I ended up going with my most high waisted pants haha. Its simple and cool and perf for NYC.

Right now I’m planning on what to buy for my Europe trip and I am stuck between two pairs of super cute booties. These pink velvet ones from Anthropologie and these gold ones from Madewell! Ugh such a hard decision haha.

See you on Wednesday!
