Something in my Button Up

Everyone should have at least one dress shirt in their closet. I love that this one is a little different because it features a strap that allows it to be worn off the shoulder. It’s also a little oversized which I think gives it a more effortless look.  I kept it simple styling it with a pair of ripped jeans and a block heel. How would you style this shirt?

SOMETHING IN MY VELVET JOGGERS

I LOVE the velvet tend (I spoke about it briefly in my last post) so when I saw these velvet joggers at Zara I knew I had to grab them. I wanted the main focus to be on the joggers, so I styled them with a simple black t-shirt and leather jacket. I also paired them with my Nudist heels by Stuart Weitzman but another option would be to style them with a pair of sneakers. Either way, it’s a fun way to wear the trend 🙂

10 FALL FASHION TRENDS OF 2016

fall-fashion-trends-final

I have to say, fall is my FAVORITE season to shop for. I love all the layering, textures and shoe options. Therefore, I decided to share some of my favorite fall fashion trends!

1. Uneven Hem Denim: This trend takes your average jeans and makes them look effortlessly cool and chic. Pair with some booties, loafers or my favorite, pumps! Also very popular is the mom jean. Sometimes the mom jean may be combined with the uneven hem trend which I prefer. I actually DIYed a pair and they came out awesome so that may be an option for you.

2. Velvet Everything!: Velvet is huge this season. I’m seeing it on anything from bags, to shoes, to clothing. Something like the velvet Gucci bag is great because it incorporates another trend that is still huge which is the crossbody bag.

3. The Oversized Denim Jacket: I’m not sure how long this trend will really be around, but while it is, I will be wearing it. Not to mention, it’s a really comfortable way to wear a denim jacket.

4. The Over The Knee Boot: Similar to the leather jacket, I believe this trend is here to stay. Wether it’s a heeled version or a flat version, they can instantly make an outfit. Plus, you can look great while staying warm.

5. The Leather Biker Jacket: I mean does this trend ever really go away? This is my ultimate staple piece. From girly dresses to black jeans and a t-shirt, the leather jacket will always edge up an outfit.

6. The Athleisure Trend: Who doesn’t love to be able to wear your track pants, sneakers and leggings out the house without ever attending a yoga class. Me!

7. The Silk Cami/Slip Dress: This trend is sexy and feminine. Wearing this trend in the colder months can be challenging, but add a long sleeve top underneath and you’re good to go.

8. The Loafers: I love the loafer trend because I think it’s a great way to add menswear into your wardrobe without it being too much. Throw them on with your uneven hem mom jeans and you are instantly on trend 😉

9. The Choker: If I had to pick one jewelry trend for the season it would be the choker trend. It’s appropriate all year around, but something about a choker says fall to me.

10. The Embroidered Bomber Jacket (Anything Embroidered): Embroidery is everywhere thanks to Gucci. Like the velvet trend, I have seen it on jackets, shoes, bags and clothing. The embroidered bomber jacket is a fresh new take on your average bomber.

BACK TO SCHOOL

Something In My Mules

3 3 shoes 5 6 Yesterday I went into Soho (one of my favorite places in NYC) to grab some brunch at Jacks Wife Freda (to hear my thoughts click HERE)  and to also do some light shopping. We also checked out some of the local murals (very touristy of us lol). Lastly we stopped at this delicious ice cream spot called 10 Below for dessert. With all that being said we did A LOT of walking.

I was so happy I opted for my Urban Outfitter mules. They are super comfortable and because the heel is so low, I could have walked in them all day, which I basically did.

The mule trend is something that comes in all heel heights/styles but because I’m on the taller side I decided to go with a lower style mule.

It was pretty hot this day so I kept it simple and casual with my white v-neck tee, Levis cut offs and for interest I added a grey vest from Topshop.

Something Styling Culottes

2 3 4 16 18 21 22 20 10 The culottes trend is something some people either love or hate. I really wanted to play around with the trend and see if I would like it on myself. I purchased mine from Forever 21 (as I showed in a haul) Score because they were so inexpensive yet great quality and they came in this nice neutral color, oh! and they had pockets, everyone likes pockets 🙂

When styling culottes everyone has their own way of doing it but in my opinion I think it’s all about proportions. Because the pants are flowy and cut right below the knee, I love complimenting that proportion with a crop top. Especially because they are also high waisted. This one from NA-KD has a choker attached which makes it a little different from your average crop top. Another option would be to tuck in a t-shirt/tank top into the pants to compliment the look. To finish off the look, I added some strappy heels from Zara (I think culottes look the best with heels) and my All Saints leather jacket to add a little edge.

What do you guys think of this trend?

Something Off The Shoulder

IMG_3106 IMG_3110 IMG_3116 IMG_3121 IMG_3175 IMG_3187 IMG_3154 IMG_3184 IMG_3171 So today I went into Manhattan for a wedding (just the church/ceremony part) but also had plans in Queens right after to go to lunch for my dads birthday. I needed to wear something that could work for both occasions. I will admit, the wedding was pretty casual so I didn’t have to think too hard. Here’s what I came up with!

I have been obsessed with the off the shoulder trend. I’v actually loved the trend for years because it’s so flattering and forgiving on so many body shapes.  I paired my RoseGal dress (which is tall girl friendly due to the back falling lower than the front) with some gladiator heels and done! Simple yet chic 🙂

1111 grey 1.0 grey 3 grey 2 blog 9 blog 5 Today I headed into Chelsea to check out some art work at the David Zwirner Gallery.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t aloud to take pictures or videos but it was a very small exhibit so you aren’t missing out.  It was sunny but freezing so I decided to wear a cozy turtleneck sweater with a pair of boyfriend jeans and my Superstar Adidas. I love how these sneakers (and sneakers in general) are back in style.  I think they’re going to transition perfectly into spring and summer. I also topped my outfit off with this grey duster coat from Shein.  I can wear this coat with anything and even tho it was very inexpensive, it instantly makes me feel chic.
