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

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).

NYC temperatures are still hovering in the upper 60's, lower 70's range, so it's not quite cold enough for fall clothing, but not quite warm enough to pull off the summer favorites either. For this weird in-between weather, I went with a classic white button down and relaxed denim, and made it a little more fall by adding on a pair of olive chelsea rain-boots and a burgundy neck scarf tied in a wilderness knot (for those of you who "speak J.Crew" this will make perfect sense)

Burgundy and Olive are going to be two huge colors for this coming fall, and I'm excited to play them up together with neutrals like camel and navy, to part from the typical boring black (So non-New-Yorker of me). And as if I haven't pounded the idea of neck-scaves into you enough lately, I'm crazy excited to build my collection and wear them all. the. time.

And of course I have to top that off with a few accessories. Going off the burgundy trend, I carried this adorable micro bag from the WhoWhatWear x Target collection (which is only $30!!) After that, I added on a few small pieces of jewelry from this month's Rocksbox (see the post with a code for a free box HERE) I threw on these delicate Kendra Scott Kimmel threader earrings and a pave ring by Sophie Harper

we've had a bit of a cold front in the city, and I was able to give this fur vest one last outing before spring/summer! I stuck to classic New York black, but added a little spring flair with this gorgeous orange lipstick by Kat Von D! I highly recommend these, they are amazing!

Suite Life - Jonathan Simkhai

Good morning lovelies! For anyone who doesn't know, I am an intern at a luxury, salon-style store called Suite 1521. This week we had the Jonathan Simkhai Spring 2016 and Fall 2016 collections in, and I couldn't resist trying on a few things, they're just stunning! 

The first look was a separate shredded linen crop top and midi skirt. It was honestly one of the most comfortable things I've ever worn, and so chic! I'm in love with the crop top and midi skirt trend. So chic and easy!

The second (and my favorite) is this red scalloped crop top and white culottes. THESE CULOTTES. I've been a little weary of trying on culottes, but they are amazing. These fit like a glove, and were so soft and flattering, I would almost consider dropping the $375 to buy them! Kidding, but I'll definitely be hitting up Zara for some look-alikes. 

Next week we have Rosie Assoulin, Edie Parker, and Courreges! Let me know if you like these posts, and they might become a weekly thing!

Parisian Vintage

Parisian Vintage

I am lucky enough to have a grandmother with impeccable taste, and she has slowly passed down a few gorgeous vintage items to me, including this cream and brown silk scarf. I'll admit, at first I wasn't quite sure how to work this little gem into my wardrobe.

Taking cues from effortlessly chic Parisian style, I simply knotted it over a burgundy button-down, light brown leather jacket, pixie pants, and ballet flats. I made sure to keep the makeup simple, with just a touch of brown shadow and light-pink lipstick by Jouer in the color Meredith.

Getting Shifty

Getting Shifty

For a comfortable fall outfit, there's nothing better than cozy tights and a loose dress. You look put together, but with minimal effort! I love this shift shirtdress from Lou & Grey (similar), and paired with comfy black flats, it's definitely a go-to in my closet! 

I love this gold metal hair elastic, because it makes you look like you MEANT to do a ponytail, and not that you we're just too lazy to style your hair that day. Plus, adding a little pop of color with orangy-red nails and lips keeps it from being too boring!

Leather and Layers

Leather and Layers

Today was a bit on the chilly side (it's about time!!) so I decided to layer two of my favorite pieces, this blue pinstripe button down from J.Crew Factory, with this blue/grey sweater (similar) from LOFT!

I added a little sparkle with this crystal statement necklace, also from J.Crew Factory and then paired that with J.Crew pixie pants, my brown leather jacket, and brown leather ankle boots (similar)! Topping everything off is my forever-favorite lipstick, Clinique's Color Pop Lipstick in Cola Pop!

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)!
