Florals for spring?…#GroundBreaking….can you guess what movie that is from? My favorite movie ‘The Devil Wears Prada‘ of course! Although the famous ice queen is based on real life Anna Wintour, after yesterday’s amazing Zoolander moment during Paris Fashion Week…Anna seemed anything but icey and I absolutely loved it! If you have no clue what I am talking about, you MUST check out how Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson took Paris Fashion Week by storm with their finale walk during the Maison Valentino show to promote the upcoming movie Zoolander 2! I never saw the first one (maybe I should get on that) but Ben was actually wearing some florals 😉 So he was my style inspiration for this post haha 😛So after going through these photos I noticed I was standing in front of a smiley face…Say Cheese 🙂 This look is perfect for spring…florals and booties? YES! It’s even great to wear to the office. I love a great A-Line skirt because to be quite honest I find them flattering on almost every figure…if you aren’t one for color, opting for a gray floral print is ideal because it’s a feminine print without being ‘too much’. I paired the skirt with a simple gray cowl neck top, black open toe booties (a great winter to spring transition shoe) + my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mab tote.
I tend to wear the same few watches everyday, but for this outfit I decided to take my silver Michael Kors watch out of retirement! This was one of my first nice watches I ever got and it was a birthday gift from my parents a few years ago…I feel like this watch is a right of passage…at least on Long Island. My sister got this watch in gold and I have run into countless tweens, teens and young ladies all rocking this Michael Kors staple and I don’t blame them…it’s a fantastic watch!
On a side note today is going to be a busy day for me at work and I am trying to recuperate after being sick yesterday…I felt dizzy, nauseous and needed a break…sometimes commuting and a hectic schedule gets to ya so some much needed R+R was needed along with reruns of Real Housewives and cuddling with Charlie <3 That’ll make everything better!
Finally some warmer weather has hit NYC! It may not be for long, but while it’s here I want to embrace finally being able to wear a skirt without totally freezing my butt off! This outfit is a mix of old and new.
One of my favorite accessories in this outfit is my scarf. I got it on clearance at H&M I’d say a good 3-4 years ago and it felt like a blast from the past when I decided to pair it with this outfit. I love the print of the scarf because it reminds me of something Dolce and Gabbana put out a few years ago…I was going for the whole ‘Look For Less’ thing when I purchased it haha! Sometimes a unique accessory is all an outfit needs to look polished and put together!
This look can transition from day to night and from work to play. For the office, remove the leather jacket and bam cute and stylish outfit to wear to work. Add the leather jacket, and it’s the perfect outfit for Happy Hour or a Girls Night Out! To make the look cute, sexy and professional I added these fabulous Anne Klein pumps I scored at Burlington Coat Factory for a whopping $20…yes this was a steal I was beyond thrilled about!
I love this look because it’s easy and flattering…who doesn’t love showing some leg and even better who doesn’t feel like a total bad ass rocking a leather jacket?! I sure do 😉
