City Hall

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

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

Off The Shoulder

Off The Shoulder

New Yorkers may be cold and calloused, but our wildlife sure is friendly, or... at least our squirrels are. While shooting down in City Hall Park this morning (a very underrated NYC park) a pack of squirrels came and said hello, and I made friends with one little bushy-tailed fella in particular!

For this bright city morning I pulled out one of my favorite new pieces, this off the shoulder number from J.Crew, proving that you can still do cold-shoulder looks in 40 degree weather. With it, I paired my trusty white bandana and a few sparkly bits that came in this month's Rocksbox (use code AudraKochXOXO for a free month!) And you can't go wrong with a dark wash denim and black heeled booties (I'm surprised that neither of these have fallen to pieces yet!)

Brooklyn Haze

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).

No Sleep Till...

No Sleep Till...

Brooklyn! The roomies and I took a trip down to Williamsburg to do some vintage shopping and explore a different part of the city. Grand and Bedford St both have some cool stores If you ever visit, and Antionette is a definite  favorite. 

For today, I decided to channel a more "downtown" vibe with a leather mini-skirt, oversized knit sweater, heeled booties, metal ponytail holder, and a metal collar necklace. I like how the bulkiness of the sweater counters the short skirt and the mustard yellow color looked so cool against this grey wall we found.

As soon as I pulled this dress out of the wrapping Christmas morning, I heard my goofball dad say "hey! you got a prison dress!" So in honor of that, I'm calling this look Jailbreak. The dress is a super flattering longsleeve shift dress, which was a gift from my older sister, Emma. I love that the material is a bit thicker than usual, so it will work well with tights for when it gets colder. 

 I wanted to keeps things fairly simple, so I paired it with these black ankle boots, Kendra-Scott-like earrings (they're from Target!) and one of my favorite lip colors, Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Max 23, which has sadly been discontinued, and I haven't yet found a good dupe for it.

I am absolutely obsessed with this bright red turtleneck sweater from J.Crew Factory!! It perfectly matches my Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise, and paired flawlessly with my NARS matte lip pencil in Cruella.  

I added just a touch of sparkle with these Stella & Dot ear jackets  and tied up my hair to show them off with this metal hair pony!

Check Yes

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)!
