Trending Tuesday: Berets

We’re heading into the colder months of the year, which means it’s almost time for my favorite accessory! I developed a love of berets more through necessity, traveling Europe in the winter, and needing warm and versatile accessories, but they have blown up as a trend, and there are so many fun variations above and beyond just changing colors!

Leather, pearls, embroidery, there are so many ways to turn a simple, chic cold weather accessory into a statement piece in an outfit!

For a low-key look, throw it on as normal with a pair of white sneakers, and you’ve instantly got a ‘model off duty’ vibe.

Peek a patterned tshirt underneath by leaving the buttons undone, and you’re the most stylish girl in the room.

A New York Minute With Daniel Wellington

New York is one of the most fast paced cities on earth. From early in the morning till late at night, over 8 million people are working, connecting, creating, and running from place to place, and that makes it an extremely exciting place to live. But when life is flying by at the speed of a New York minute, it’s important to be grateful for the small moments each day. I’m partnering with Daniel Wellington and trying to slow down time for a few moments to appreciate this hectic life.

Almost every New Yorker starts the morning by hopping on the subway to head to work, and if they’re anything like me, they need a watch to tell them to leave so they’re not late! (I still am, let’s be honest here) I love that the Bristol is minimal and classic, so I can put it on with any outfit, and it looks clean and sophisticated.

Next in the day is of course, caffeine. I’ve been coming to Birch coffee in Flatiron since I moved to New York in 2015, and it’s always kept me coming back for anything from a long study session to just grabbing a cup of coffee with a friend. The atmosphere is warm and relaxing, and their coffee is small-batch roasted in Queens!

Move Over Millennial Pink, Here Comes Gen Z Yellow

gen z yellow, monochromatic look, head to toe color, spring outfits for women, how to wear yellow

I was born in 1997, making me too young to quite be considered a Millennial, but too old to be considered Generation Z. While I still had a flip-phone when I was young (and a sidekick!), I don’t really remember a time where computers/the internet didn’t exist. So you see my dilemma in not having a generation to be a part of. Oh well, those of us born in the late 90’s will just have to resign ourselves to not belonging to any generation, or being a hybrid of both.

That being said, I’ve always loved Millennial pink as a color. It’s bright, fun, and you guys know how much I love the color pink in general. (My entire apartment is pink!) But there has been such a surge in the new generation’s color: Gen Z Yellow.

Gen Z Yellow is brighter, more fun, more spontaneous, and full of electric energy, just like the generation it represents, and that’s why I’m all on board. You may start to see this color slowly overtaking Millennial Pink, not just on my blog and in my photos, but everywhere!

A lot of people shy away from wearing yellow, saying it doesn’t suit them, but don’t be afraid of this bold hue! Start small, with just an accessory, and build up to wearing a bright yellow dress or sweater!

Trending Tuesday: Snakeskin

A lovvely instagram follower requested this particular trend for Trending Tuesday, and I’m so glad she did, because it’s such a fun one! Snakeskin is such an easy trend to incorporate into your wardrobe, but I would put a few rules on it for beginners so you don’t veer into tacky.

  1. Keep it to accessories. This trend looks best on bags and shoes, not a whole outfit

  2. Keep the tones cool. Go for a white-grey-black palette

  3. Let it be the focus. make the rest of your outfit simple, and let the snakeskin be the pop
