Back to a time where neutrals weren’t a thing, and having big hair was IT. Cue Lady Gaga’s new single Stupid Love, or The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights. The new songs are giving me 80s feels, and quite frankly so is the fashion world. Sparkle day wear, monochrome suiting, and over the top ruffles are all that’s on my mind right now.
Alas, it’s the last weekend of February! As I’m sure everyone usually feels, January and February can be very long, dragged out months because of the weather. But, it almost feels like we’ve been having an early spring. Although I do wear color year round, Spring is the time for pastels and when I can finally break out my floral frocks after being locked away since August.
The greatest thing about New York City is without even a plan, you can head out for the day and stroll through a neighborhood and find so many cool things to do. I love walking around the city on the weekends, even if it’s only for a few hours! This past Saturday my friend and I set out for Soho and we found the coolest art gallery.
Although I do wear pink and red all year-round, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year to bring out all your pink and red and mix and match. Not only is it fun to wear the colors through clothes, accessories are sometimes the best part. Heart shaped purses, pink and red socks, and hot pink faux fur are on the menu.
As January is coming to a close and February is on the horizon, I start to go through my winter wardrobe and put away my red and navy plaids, and dig into my spring/summer pieces and grab a few that are perfect for transitioning from February to March. Especially with blouses I find that quite a few of my spring/summer ones I can style in a way that makes them appropriate to wear even in mid-winter.
As some of you may know, pink is my all-time favorite color. I have curated a list of all the pink pieces I’m loving right now below!
Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? Definitely not me. Wearing whites in the winter be it an all-white ensemble or a pair of white jeans or nice blouse can look so le chic. When it hits mid-January I always love to brighten things up in my looks with the use of light colors and white.
I am always the person when shopping to enter a store fully knowing I need a classic, staple item, and I always leave without that but with a crazy new colored faux fur, or an item I know I don’t NEED, but that I LOVE. I’ve been getting better about this, as I’m getting older I realize the importance of a staple item that when I put on although it may not be over the top, it makes anyone look classy and put together.
A period of divinity, exquisite dressing, and splendor partying through the duration of the 1920s and has left a mark on many of us one hundred years later. The younger people of the time pushed the limits outside of Victorian thinking and dived into the lifestyle of the decadent. Women were finally able to vote and were nudging themselves into the workforce, and most of all, they were testing the way women were “supposed” to dress with shorter hemlines and très chic bobbed hairstyles. Women were feeling empowered and society was booming.
As February comes to a close and March is around the corner, I start to want to wear my spring wardrobe. Like everyone, I’m getting bored of my winter wardrobe and want to start bringing more florals into my everyday looks. Since it’s a little early to start wearing lighter florals, I’m leaning towards dark florals to get me through these next few weeks. Keep on Reading!
The winter time can be rough, especially if you live in a place where the weather is constantly changing. But aside from those random 50 degree days, it can get very cold. Since I’m walking much more outside in the cold since I’m in NYC, I’ve come to figure out the accessories I can’t live without in the winter to keep me warm, but still chic. Keep on Reading!
When Pantone announced that the color of 2019 is living coral, I was very excited. I don’t think I have anything in my closet that’s coral, and I think that’s due to the fact that I don’t come across coral pieces very often. Now that Pantone has announced that it’s the color of the year, I’ve seen celebrities, and even the Queen of England wearing the color, which has inspired me to add it to my closet. Keep on Reading!
Is it just me, or was January a reaalllyy long month? Now that February is finally here, and although this month can be the worst for winter, I also like to take this month to focus on myself. Valentine’s Day is approaching and even if you don’t have a special someone, and if you’re away from home like me, you can still spend this time taking care of yourself. Keep on Reading!
Ever since watching Gossip Girl for the first time about five years ago, Blair Waldorf’s iconic, preppy style has inspired me. It may have taken a while (about 3-4 years) to dress how I wanted to and imagined for years, but now that I am, it’s made me realize the one person who completely inspired me is Blair Waldorf. Keep on Reading!
Christmas will be here in just under a week (I can’t believe it!), and quickly afterwards it will be New Years Eve. No better way to celebrate the New Year than to get together with friends and family and reminisce on the past year, and have hope for the new one! Keep on Reading!
The holiday festivities are in full swing, and I love to brighten them up with lights, decorations, and of course, my wardrobe. I love to wear all colors of the rainbow and sparkles, and the holidays are no exception of that. Keep on Reading!
The type of shoe you wear totally transforms a look; they can make or break it! Sometimes an outfit can’t be worn without some sort of heel, and some should be worn with flats. For me it’s always about proportion, how long a dress/skirt is, or the fit of a pair of pants can tell you exactly the right type of shoes to wear. If I’m wearing a dress/skirt that’s more fitted, I tend to go towards some type of heel to flatter my legs. Keep on Reading!
I know it’s getting cold, especially for us living in New England. It can be awful going outside whether your out for a day in the city, trying to clean off your car before going to work, etc. If I were to tell you one style tip for winter and braving the cold, it would be to leave the animals alone, stay away from real fur.

I can never go a season without my favorite color combination, pink and red. With December quickly approaching, your holiday events have either already started or are about to, and you’re probably still on the search for something to wear, or want to add a perfect touch to your look with jewelry, or the perfect bag.
