Hello!

Hope your weekend has been great ūüôā

I’ve been anticipating cold weather for so long.. I’m definitely ready for winter. ¬†Although it’s still pretty nice here in NY, it’s cool enough for me to layer up. ¬†My¬†day was spent walking around outside, so layering was necessary.¬†¬†I decided to create a¬†look around these awesome plaid trousers. ¬†To do so, I made sure to keep the rest of my outfit pretty simple, playing up¬†different shapes and textures. ¬†I bought this cool black-netted halter tank over the summer and instead of putting it away for next¬†summer, I chose¬†to incorporate it into today’s outfit. ¬†Because of the cooler temperatures, I layered the tank on top of this grey long-sleeve turtleneck. ¬†With the¬†turtleneck being¬†so simple, the netted texture definitely added interest to the top. ¬†To add extra warmth, I added¬†this black collarless wool coat. ¬†The¬†long¬†shape and texture always add something cool to every¬†look. ¬†I kept my shoes pretty comfortable, wearing white leather platform slip-ons. They add¬†about an inch or two, and give¬†a minimalistic feel. ¬†I kept my makeup simple, winging out my eyeliner. ¬†To finish off, I wore my favorite sunglasses, as well as my everyday silver rings.

hope you enjoy the upcoming week ūüôā¬†x

Hello everyone!

Hope the start of your week has been going great ūüôā

Since fall is finally here, I wanted to take full advantage of the cooler weather to wear these awesome printed pants.  They have such an amazing and cool pattern, while not being overwhelming at all.  I styled the rest of my outfit around them, making them pop.  To keep the outfit comfortable, I wore an oversized white crew-necked tee which I tucked into the pants, adding shape.  On top, I wore my favorite burgundy jean jacket which added the perfect amount of color and coverage to the look.  To give me an inch or two of extra height, I wore my white platform slip-ons which add interest to the outfit, while keeping it simple.  I kept it easy with accessories, adding my favorite silver rings, and go-to sunglasses.  I kept my eye makeup simple with thin winged eyeliner, and also wore a pop of color on the lips to compliment my jacket.

Hope you enjoyed this look and wishing you an awesome rest of the week! x

Summer Textures

fence2fence7fence10fence4fence5fence8

Hello everyone!

To start off, happy summer!!

I’m so excited¬†to be off from school and surrounded by warm weather. ūüôā

When looking for the perfect background for todays look, we came across a distressed, baby-blue painted fence/doorway which I absolutely loved.¬† When looking for a background, I want it to be interesting and complementing to the outfit i’m wearing, while not being overly distracting.

Today my look consisted of soft, lighter textures, perfect for the hot temperatures. ¬†I started off with my favorite top for summer, which is this thin white¬†high-necked tank. ¬†To go along with the light tank, I paired it with these black¬†flowy¬†drawstring shorts, with little tassels hanging from the bottom. ¬†Keeping me covered,¬†while also adding an interesting pattern, was this blue and white pin-stripe button up. ¬†It’s my go-to piece for summer when a little extra coverage is needed. For this look, I also thought it went very nicely with the rest of my outfit. ¬†To finish off my look, my new black-leathered sandals were perfect. ¬†They go along with the simplicity of the outfit, but add the perfect amount of excitement. ¬†I will definitely be wearing them all summer. ¬†For accessories, I wore some of my go-to turquoise, silver rings as well as my favorite gold and silver initial/monogram necklaces. ¬†Adding a little extra edge to the look were my favorite round-framed¬†sunnies.

Hope you’re enjoying the warmer weather!! x

Hello everyone!

Hope your long weekend has started off well ūüôā

Today it was cooler than the rest of the week, so I wanted to share my chilly-spring outfit. To start, I wore this light cream knit two-toned sweater. It gave me the perfect amount of warmth, without being too heavy for the weather. For bottoms, I wore my charcoal military pants.  They are so comfortable, while adding something to the outfit.  To add detail, I wore these black and white striped, daisy-print socks. I loved the contrast of the socks against my black and white sneakers.  The adidas are so classic and always add a sporty look to any outfit.  For accessories, I wore some of my favorite silver, gold and brass rings, along with my newest favorite sunnies.  Adding a black and white baseball cap played along with the sporty look I was going for.  To add a pop of color (for spring of course:), I wore this hot pink lip color.  It adds excitement to the look, while not being too overwhelmingly colorful.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the week! x

Spring Neutrals

Hello everyone!!

With the weather getting nicer and nicer,¬†I thought I would share a lighter, more spring-time look with you. ¬†Today I wanted to incorporate this amazing, light floral jacket with a basic and neutral color palette underneath. ¬†I started with a light and airy high-necked tank, which is simple but elegant. ¬†To add a little bit of color, and to break up the white’s and black’s, these nude drawstring shorts were perfect. ¬†They added the perfect amount of subtle color, while being unbelievably comfortable. ¬†For shoes, I chose a pair of classic white leather slip-on Vans. ¬†They are very versatile and add a comfy, but still look put together. ¬†I added some of my favorite silver rings, along with this silver embellished leather chord choker to add a little edge to the look. ¬†Finishing off the look, my new gold-rimmed circle sunnies did the trick. ¬†I’m absolutely in love with them and will be wearing them all summer.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! x

Dailylook – LBD Spring Style Challenge

Hello everyone!

So I have a really cool, awesome post for you today.  I was completely inspired by Dailylook’s versatile Little Black Dress selection and couldn’t wait to create my own style-board on how I would style an LBD in the spring time! This spring I’m definitely going for the boho-chic look.

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 4.35.48 PM

After debating which dress was my favorite (which was pretty hard..) I went with their Gauzy Boho Dress which I’m in love with. It’s great for spring, especially with its effortless look and light texture.  This spring I hope to explore and spend time with friends going to new places – especially cool hidden cafes and vintage shops:)  For shoes, I chose Dailylook’s awesome pair of Ankle Strap Platform Heels by Kelsi Dagger.  I love how platform sandals are so comfortable, while being unbelievably cute.  Although this LBD has a cool feminine flare all to itself, it was still definitely necessary to spice things up with lots of accessories!  I went with these awesome Ray Ban round sunnies to keep my eyes protected, while adding style.  I’m in love with all circle-shaped glasses – they are so cool and add such an edge to any look.  For jewelry, it’s all about layering.  Layering simple necklaces together is a must, and I’m in love with Dailylook’s selection! You can also never go wrong with lots of rings, so it’s important to wear them on every finger:)  To hold all my spring essentials, I will definitely be grabbing a cross-body bag.  I’m loving this fringe texture, it’s a simple way to add a cool look to your outfit.  I’ve also been seeing these metallic temporary tattoo’s everywhere, and I love them! I will definitely be trying them out this spring:)

Lastly, I must share this awesome free clothing trial offer that Dailylook has for it’s new customers! The Elite Box is a monthly box of hand-picked fashion items, customized for you by your very own personal stylist and sent directly to your home. If you love Dailylook’s clothing as much as I do, definitely check this out! It’s a perfect way to try on new looks – without needing to go anywhere!!

Hope the rest of your week goes well! x

Hello everyone!

Hope your week has started off well!

Today, I went on the hunt for an interesting, urban-looking background.   While walking around, I found the back of this cool rusted truck, which was perfect for what I was looking for.

For the outfit, I wanted to lighten it up in celebration of spring with this v-necked cream tunic. ¬†It’s easy to wear, while the crochet adds a feminine, pretty detail. ¬†Under it, I wore a black strappy bralette to add some edge to the look. ¬†I can honestly add an interesting bralette under anything and make a look more interesting. ¬†For the pants, I wore my army-inspired grey cargo ankle skinnies. I also added my black chelsea boots to balance out the detailed top. ¬†For accessories, I wore two of my favorite chokers and my favorite silver gemmed rings. ¬†To add the finishing touch to my outfit, my new warm-toned mirrored sunnies did the trick. ¬†I’m absolutely obsessed with them, and I’m loving their unique style.

To tie the look together, I chose a bold, dark purple lip. ¬†With this, I kept it simple on the eyes. I’m completely into a bold lip to finish off any look.

Hope the rest of your week goes well!
