Christmas has finally arrived here in Manhattan, and Greenwich Village is decked out. The military coat I’m wearing is from Zara last year, and I absolutely love it. Now every year I look forward to taking it out during the holidays because I think it’s the epitome of a Christmas coat! My Meme gave me this headband and I absolutely love it for winter in the city.
Burgundy is a lovely shade to wear in the fall, and pairs so well with both browns and blacks, the basis of my autumn wardrobe. This coat that I’ve had for a year now was the perfect match to my Nars lip pigment in shade Warm Leatherette. This lip color is beautiful, and it lasts the whole day, with only a few touch ups after I drink or eat something. I love the Burgundy colors with the snake print, the two tones together look lovely.
For an autumn day in the Meatpacking District I was inspired by equestrian style. I love the preppy aesthetic that comes with it, and I’ve always wanted to go horseback riding in a full ensemble from Ralph Lauren, but this will have to due for now. I wore an old plaid blouse from Zara that’s still one of my favorites years later, with a vintage brown leather vest that my mother gave me.
I’m starting to cherish my Sunday’s more and more. As it’s a time to relax, but also catch up with yourself and prepare for the week ahead. Life is crazy and during the weeks I catch myself just going throughout the day, rushing around and not really thinking or letting myself just be for a second. There’s nothing better than waking up on a Sunday morning, grabbing brunch with a friend, and catching up on all the things to get a jump start into the week.
As we near closer to Thanksgiving the foliage is at its peak here in New York City. The weather is quickly getting cooler, and here in the city the holiday markets have already begun.
Before I fully jump into the holiday festivities, I couldn’t skip out on sharing my photos from this past October in Central Park. I’ve been dreaming for years to get to experience a New York Autumn, and I’m so happy to say I finally have.
A purple and red combination is one of my all time favorites. The deep purple and bright red make for the best autumn combination when you’re not feeling the tans, browns, oranges, and greens.
No season could ever top fall. After a hot summer, there’s nothing better than the change of seasons, feeling like there is a fresh start. The air is cool, and Autumn colors start to bloom.
It’s Autumn! My favorite season of all comes with crisp weather, deep toned colors, and the changing of leaves. The fashion that comes with it excites me so much. Layering, wearing gloves and cloches, knee high schools and Mary Janes. Plaid and dark florals; preppy style is my all-time favorite, and Autumn is the perfect time to wear it.
Purple candy stripes were the mood for this September look. I find September dressing can be one of the hardest months to dress for, along with March. The seasons are starting to change, you’re slowly drifting your wardrobe from bright prints and florals to more fall-like tones and prints.
This past Sunday my friends and I went to the Coach Originals Pop-Up store in New York City, and it was amazing! They had restored vintage bags, along with new inspired bags from the archives. The bags were beautiful and had all the fall feels with the use of fall tones like greens, burgundy’s, and deep yellows. Upstairs they had their new collection which I love, the new prints are great for fall.
The balloon sleeve is a great way to play with 80s style, and with the modern twist on it that I’ve been seeing for this fall is perfect and can be worn casual, in the office, or going out. It’s a fun way to play with volume and spice up a more casual outfit when worn with jeans. A perfect way to add drama to any look.
September is creeping up on us, which means autumn is going to be here before we know it. It’s my favorite season, and I absolutely can’t wait to start breaking out my beautiful boots and autumn colors. When the leaves start to change I feel so much inspiration and joy, it’s like the start of a new year for me. I’m most especially excited for being in the city for this season. There will be many walks in Central Park, and photos galore. I’ve dreamed about being in New York City in autumn for years and years, and now I’ll finally be able to experience it. Crisp fall days are awaiting us.
As always, I love playing around with different colors when creating new looks. It’s also a way to reimagine old pieces you’ve had in your closet for some time. I love any red and blue outfit in the summer, but to change it up I decided to throw in a splash of yellow with a flower headband.
A black jumpsuit is a very flattering piece to wear. It makes you look taller and when worn with heels is a really classic piece. To elevate my black halter jumpsuit I paired it with my teal flower belt(that I absolutely love, my best vintage find), and wore a seashell blue necklace with matching drop earrings. For bag I decided to add a pop of color with the neon yellow/green. I’m wearing bow black heeled sandals to continue with the black which makes my legs look longer. Especially for shorter people, never underestimate the power of a black jumpsuit to make you look taller.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now officially open to the public! Although it can be a stressful sale to navigate because there is so much to see and so many great deals, I suggest narrowing down on what you want to buy, and that’s shoes!
Easy, breezy. If you’re looking for a fabric that’s comfortable and chic to wear for the summer months, you’ll be living in linen this season. Linen is a fabulous fabric for the hot and humid months, and there are so many different ways to wear it that you’ll never have to repeat the same outfit twice. Since we’re moving right along into the end of July and beginning of August where summer temperatures are at their highest, wearing light weight pieces is key to staying comfortable and being able to still enjoy the summer.
When it comes to really anything in my life, I’m a maximalist all the way. My dressing, is probably at the very top of this list. I love to accessorize and match colors in different ways, and from head to toe I make sure everything in my outfit is complete. For this look I experimented with layering during the summer months. I have a pink suede shift dress, and on top I have a gray star tulle tank top. Noticing the silver in the top, to make my waist more defined I added a bow pearl chain belt, and added more pearls with a necklace. There is also rose gold in the top, so for earrings I have these space looking rose gold hoops that I’m wearing. I am wearing my favorite Pandora silver rings, and for shoes I added another pop of rose gold to make the silver to rose gold ratio even. Surprisingly I am not carrying my summer go-to bag for this look, but instead wanted to add this mauve colored simple bag that adds a new tone of pink to the look.
This is a question I ask myself quite often, especially as someone that after getting a degree at university wants to break into the fashion industry. When I saw the American Vogue August cover this past week I couldn’t help but be so disappointed. What happened to fashion that makes you think, what happened to high fashion and creative thinking, not pleasing everyone, but creating someone that is thought provoking. Fashion isn’t about pleasing everyone, it’s about presenting to the world your art, and whether someone likes it or not has absolutely nothing to do with it. People have been saying it for some time now, but American Vogue has definitely become way to commercial. Stop putting the latest and greatest celebrity on the cover, and lets get supermodels back on the covers. Lets start making fashion how it was just a few years ago. I know fashion is all about thinking what’s next, but I think it’s about time we all take a step back and think about how much the creativity and art aspect of it has been lost in the years. I also think this has to do with the influence of young people, and how I think the majority of people, especially around my age, are completely obsessed with brand names, that it has effected the industry and what fashion and creativity actually is.
As soon as I saw these gloves whilst browsing through Amazon looking for vintage inspired hats I knew I had to have them and style them. They are the epitome of vintage style. I’ve styled them here with a floral midi dress with black bow suede block heels. I also love this thick ribboned straw bow hat.
I’ve never seen anyone look bad in a wrap dress, and I think it fits all body types so beautifully. The tie waist shows off your shape, and the wrap style has a very flattering and easy-going neckline, along with the bottom half. They come in mini, midi, and maxi lengths, making them perfect to wear for any occasion! In the summer months I see it as a style many women turn to and find them everywhere.
