City Hall

No, I didn't get married, although this spot is where tons of young lovers in the city come to get married and snap a few pictures in this gorgeous little park. The fact that it had just stopped raining a few hours prior to this made the pavement of the park glitter, and the early morning light made everything in the city seem fresh and hopeful.

I finally pulled this skirt out of the back of my closet. I made it about two years ago to wear on Christmas, and this is only its second time seeing the light of day (I need to pull it out more often!) I love pairing this dramatic and slightly formal skirt with a roughed up and casual denim button down. Adding a pair of glittering earrings just pulls everything together, and the block heeled ankle boot keeps it from getting too prissy.

Chartreuse

When given the thought, most people will immediately say "I look terrible in yellow!", but I think that's simply not true. Everyone has a shade, whether you're a true bright yellow, a warm mustard, or going the extreme route and trying something like this bright chartreuse.

I bought this LOFT sweater a while ago, but I'll admit, it took me a while to get used to the vivid color and be confident wearing it. Now, it's one of my favorites! Putting this embellished collar shirt underneath adds another pop of interest, but since this one has been long out of stock, you can get a similar look with a classic white button down and a statement necklace

Brooklyn Haze

Good morning, lovelies! Long-time-no-see! I've been swamped between homework and work these past two weeks, but I should be back to my normal blogging schedule soon. However, I did manage to pop down to Brooklyn Heights during a crisp foggy morning, and after shooting with David, hung out for a bit and sipped coffee while reading and people-watching, with a gorgeous view of the Manhattan skyline (aka my ideal morning).

Happy Friday, Lovelies! I know I'm excited to relax this weekend after a very busy week, but today I thought it would be fun to pull out these 60's/70's inspired pants (courtesy of Kayla) and pair them with a simple black long sleeve and heeled booties. I added this chained ear cuff set from Forever21 (They've stepped up their game since I stopped shopping a few years ago) and gold triangle necklace to add a little edge.

Check Yes

This morning I was greeted with a deer-in-headlights stare from my roommates, as I walked out of my room wearing JEANS. Actual denim pants. To be honest, the main reason for it was that none of my usual trousers or pants looked quite right with this J.Crew Vest (which I'm obsessed with). 

The vest is red and navy, so I threw this navy sweater (similar) underneath, and added a little sparkle with this crystal statement necklace (similar) from J.Crew Factory. Finally, I cuffed up the jeans and threw on my favorite brown ankle boots (similar)!

Denim Days

In an unusual twist of fate, I'm actually wearing denim!! No, not jeans, but a denim shirt counts, right? I needed to pull out this skirt (made by moi!) before bare-legs were gone for the year, and it looks so cute and casual with the top. Fall booties, and (my obsession) Clinique's Color Pop Lipstick in Cola Pop add to the autumn-vibes!

Knits & Florals

I've always been a tucked-in-top kind of girl, but there is something so cozy about throwing a chunky knit over an outfit. For a chilly fall day, I grabbed a simple a-line skirt and cozy mustard knit sweater and paired it with fun floral tights! I've been living in these ankle boots lately, they're perfect for the transition into colder weather!
