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

Stripes & Snowflakes


Hello everyone!

Hope your enjoying the first days of spring !! (& still snowy in NY…)

Since it’s still very chilly, I wanted to post another winter outfit. Today was all about patterns, especially stripes. I paired a warm, oversized navy knit sweater over this delicate white and navy pin-stripe button up. I love how it peeks out from the top and bottom of the sweater. To play with more stripes, I wore my favorite dark grey velvet-textured striped boot-leg jeans. They add an exciting detail to the outfit. I’m loving the striped pieces against each other;¬†pairing two patterns together, without being overwhelmingly crazy. For shoes, I wore my new cheetah platform slip-ons (which I will be wearing all spring). They not only compliment the outfit with the subtle cheetah print, but give me an inch or two:). For accessories, I added some of my favorite silver, turquoise and onyx rings. I also couldn’t resist from wearing my favorite vintage circle sunnies. To add a pop of color, I wore a deep red lip and kept it subtle on the eyes with a classic winged black liner. I also twisted a piece of hair and pinned it back to frame my face. (I love doing both sides of my hair, but for today I kept it to just one).

Wishing you an amazing rest of the weekend! x
