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

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!)

Yellow & Navy

Good morning, Lovelies! Today I thought I would break out my favorite color combo, yellow and navy! I nabbed these gorgeous J.Crew earrings a few weeks ago when someone else returned them (just my luck!) and I love how they add a fun pop of color to any outfit! This Zara dress is a bit shorter than I usually wear, but the collared top balances it out a bit, and looks so cute paired with these J.Crew Factory Addie loafers! Once again, I'm wearing the soft matte lip cream from NYX in the shade Cannes (LOVE this shade!)

Peter Pilotto

I hope you've all had a wonderful week and are excited for the upcoming weekend! I'm still dreaming of last weekend when I got to fly up to Arkansas for a beautiful wedding! I vlogged the entire trip and wedding HERE if you want to go watch the video! Anyway, as I was edititng the footage, I noticed that I hadn't gotten a single shot of what I wore to the wedding, so I decided to re-create everything for an outfit post today!

I will, of course, use any excuse to wear this gorgeous Peter Pilotto Pallas dress that was given to me from the internship last spring, and it was absolutly perfect for a summer outdoor wedding! (It wasn't unbearably hot, but we DANCED all night long) I wanted to make it very bohemian-glam, so I paired it with some gold hoops from Francescas, and some comfy but cute block heeled sandals, so that it was easy to walk on grassy areas while still looking cute.

Beauty Haul + Mini Reviews

Morning, Lovelies! I've recently picked up a few bits and pieces from the drugstore, ULTA, and Sephora, and I thought I would share my mini-haul today with you! Some of these are repurchases of things that I love, and some are completely new!

Fleur

Doesn't everyone carry around a purse full of flowers? Maybe not, it's a bit impractical, but makes for some very cute photos! I loved the way these spring blooms peeked out of my Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise. To compliment the already ultra-feminine look, I picked out this fun midi skier that I made about a year ago. Midi skirts are so pretty and fun, and fairly easy to sew if you know the basics!

Spring in Seersucker

I've had my eye on these cropped seersucker pants from J.Crew for quite a while now, so when they went on sale, I had to grab them before they sell out! They're light, comfortable, and perfect for spring and summer, especially paired with a chunky sandal and a chambray button down. But what would a preppy outfit be without a statement accessory? Of course, I had to throw on my favorite tortoiseshell necklace with a tiny bit of color to match my orange Kat Von D lipstick.

Orange // Gingham

Good Morning, Lovelies! Don't orange and navy go together beautifully? I was so excited when I found these gorgeous vivid orange Alice & Olivia wide-leg trousers on sale at Bergdorf Goodman in New York last week! I went in with my mother and grandmother just to see the store, and of course walked out with both new makeup and clothing (oops!).

Ladylike

 I'm so excited to share this very pastel look with y'all today! I didn't even realize it, but I'm definitely tapping into this year's Pantone colors, with Rose Quartz hair, a Serenity blue skirt, and a Lilac Grey top! Well I snagged this skirt for crazy cheap on the clearance rack at LOFT, and I'm obsessed with how classic and feminine it is!

Bomber

This week is going to be a busy one! For those of you who don't know, I'm an intern at Suite 1521, and with added days there, so much to do for classes, and keeping  my regular blogging schedule, it's going to be hectic! Sometimes I wish I was a normal college student.... but not really.

Today I had a lot of errands to run, so I needed something comfortable and easy to move in. My trusted pixie pants and tweed sneakers were no-brainers, and I threw on this cream and grey bomber jacket from LOFT to keep me warm and add a model-off-duty style to the outfit. But of course, it would never be my style without a little extra sparkle, so in came my favorite J.Crew necklace.
