I’ve just about had it with all of this snow…at this point the only thing I am finding it to be good for is to cast a nice white backdrop for my outfit photos (and even then it’s not necessarily the best to shoot in…snow + suede do not mix #oops). Although I am not feeling these snowy vibes, I am feeling this all black outfit (with a slight pop of color of course) so to distract myself from the frigid weather outside, I am attempting to stay warm and cozy in oversized sweats while writing this (in case you didn’t know, I write my posts the night before they are published #themoreyouknow).For once I am dressed weather appropriate…I have my winter accessories + shoes in tow to keep me warm, toasty and stylish!
Happy Thursday Lovers! Today’s post has a fun backdrop because I teamed up with Perrier water to promote their new ‘street art’ inspired bottle design! I searched high and low on Long Island to find some funky street art and bam I found it…in the village…Huntington Village that is! When I hear the term ‘street art’ I would naturally gravitate towards NYC, Brooklyn or Queens, but my lovely Long Island surprised me with this awesome artwork painted on the side of a bar a half hour from my house. This is one village that isn’t part of the Manhattan social scene, but it definitely is the party time hot spot on the island!It was freezing when I shot this look…like the first day of winter cold…and this was two weeks ago…do you feel my pain yet? So over the cold and the season just started! While I am not a fan of winter weather, something I am a fan of is faux fur vests like this one from Karen Kane (similar available from Chicwish here). I love adding a faux fur vest to any look…what gal doesn’t want to feel edgy, feisty and fabulous right?I wore a simple white Old Navy sweater under the vest…black and white…you can never go wrong…oh yeah and I added some bling: Elephant Necklace & Initial Triangle Necklace (both of which make amazing gifts btw!) As for my arm party…I always gravitate towards my gold Michael Kors watch and this simple Marc Jacobs disc bangle. These pieces of bling go with any outfit and are perfect for fall layering! So in addition to my white sweater and my black faux fur vest another fall essential that I am all about is vegan leather leggings like these ones I’m wearing from Lysse! They are super comfortable, totally on trend and best of all? They can be dressed up or down something I am always about 😉 Once again…mirrored aviators and the new Perrier Street Art water bottles!I bought this Louis Vuitton Neverfull as a Christmas gift to myself last year (hey that’s what happens when you get bad holiday gifts…prevent that by shopping my holiday gift guides here, here & here. And these shoes are definitely a favorite of mine for fall. I have worn them a few times both with skirts and with pants: here, here & here….what can I say when I find a pair of comfortable and stylish shoes, I stick with them!P.S. I have an extra way to keep you warm and fuzzy…a NEW Giveaway started yesterday 😉 Check out details and Enter below <3| *Click To Shop My Look* |
Happy Thursday Lovers! This was another outfit shot at my favorite Long Island back drop…the Vanderbilt Museum / Mansion. I’ve visited the grounds a few times now and every time I go it’s always picture perfect. I’m ready to instagram, pose and do typical ‘blogger’ things as some of my friends and family like to say I do whenever I visit the Vanderbilt Mansion. Well, this little look was no exception. I actually saw a few other bloggers style a maxi dress (which is traditionally a summer piece) for fall and I was inspired to do the same…hey any blogger who claims they are 100% original and don’t get ideas from stylists, bloggers or celebrities is totally lying…the world of fashion is a vast wonderland just waiting to be explored…similar to Long Island, which I’m uncovering one outfit at a time 😉I honestly can’t remember where I snagged this black ‘high-low’ maxi dress, but I found similar options here + here. The perfect way to make this common summer item and make it fall fabulous? With a cable knit sweater of course! I’m in LOVE like lust into love with this LC By Lauren Conrad Cable Knit Sweater from Kohls which is on sale NOW here.Now no look is complete without the perfect bag and shoes so here it goes…Yes, I have worn these taupe booties that I found at Marshalls a few times on the blog (here + here + here)…yeah they have become my fall staple shoe. My bag (which you can shop in my Poshmark closet here) is from Lord & Taylor (no longer available). I love a pop of color as you all know so here are two great blue quilted chain bagshere + here. I also styled this bag with a blue skater skirt for a really colorful ensemble here.If the blue bag wasn’t enough for ya, I had to rock my ‘cool girl’ sunnies…my mirrored aviators from Bloomingdales here.| Click To Shop My Look |
Happy Wednesday Loves! I am a bit obsessed with this outfit A) Because Sarah shot the photos and made me look pretty decent…I’m always wary when anyone other than my brother or sister shoot me, but I think she did a fabulous job & B) Because I love this ‘Don’t Be Basic‘ graphic tee for fall! I got this tee at Target but I found a similar one from Revolve Clothing. My faux leather jacket (which I have had since high school) is LC By Lauren Conrad at Kohls…can you tell yet that I am a huge fan of her collection? I found a similar one from Old Navy (have to keep the low price point!).
Now to break down my fall accessories…My Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag was one of the best Christmas gifts I ever got…from when I was a freshman in college. I got hooked on designer bags at a young age and have been collecting ever since…my closet loves it, my wallet not so much. I spotted these Report Shoes booties on clearance at Marshalls a month ago and knew instantly they were going to be my must have fall shoe…comfortable, affordable and stylish…you can’t beat that combination.
Kendra Scott jewelry was at the Reward Style party during NYFW and gifted us bloggers this fabulous drusy ring. It’s edgy and fun…my go to piece when it comes to standing out!
My maroon skater skirt is from the fab team at Pink Basis…it’s no longer available but I spotted a similar one at Target. Maroon is one of my favorite hues for fall!
Happy Friday Fashionistas! In addition to my love for fashion I have a slight obsession with all things colorful and ‘pretty’…one of them being cute stationary and writing materials. Nothing is cuter than jotting down notes and ‘Thank You’s’ with come brightly colored cards and notebooks! I love these items I spotted at Target (always on the ball <3) and I put together some of my favorites to share with you 🙂 Read more
