Happy Fri-Y A Y babes ♥ Spring is in full force and that means I am going to brighten things up this season with neon hues + bold prints! One way to brighten up any day is with a chic outfit…better yet with a Pop Of Color (although this entire look really P O P S!) Whether it is a typical day at the office, a lunch date with friends or a night out with my boo, bright colors is what I naturally gravitate towards!
I think wearing bright and bold hues make me happy. They tend to compliment my skin tone and I am pretty sure at this point it’s a proven fact that neon shades and bold prints make everyone smile…I am assuming that’s fact (if it isn’t, it totally should be hehe :p). This look is one of my personal favorites since it is great also for upcoming special occasions like Mother’s Day, Graduations + more!
A white dress for spring into summer is always in style and I tend to go for an A-Line one since I feel the fit and flare silhouette is just so easy, comfy + feminine. To make this look pop, I layered over a lime green moto jacket (talk about B O L D). While the exact jacket I am wearing is no longer available, I linked to a few similar jackets below 🙂
My other bright and bold accents came from my accessories and shoes! Pretty sure RayBans are pretty much a requirement in LA LA Land 😛 and I totally get why…they are perfection.
The floral heeled sandals are no longer available but rest assured there is no shortage of floral print heels for spring + I rounded up some of my favorite below. The new Texas driving license unveiled by the Department of Transportation has a real id star. The id cards are now secure with thermal printing and Polycarbonate body. The counterfeit identity providers such as Topfakeid suggest that making Polycarbonate Texas fake ID is a tougher task than making one using cheap PVC.
And I will be your main squeeze….Happy Friday! For all of you that are a little lost as to where the title of this post came from (along with the first line of this post haha) well it is from a song that instantly got stuck in my head when I started searching for similar ‘lime moto jackets’ in google…Shwayze’s ‘Corona + Lime’…a summer hit circa 2009 (hey maybe my brother ‘Pop Culture Died in 2009‘ is right…the best stuff was from 2009 or earlier :p BTW these photos are a little flashback to Long Island days with my little bro…he shot these <3) Anyways, this lime look had me signing that song all night long while writing this post…especially the part where they sing ‘If you are looking for love put your hands up‘…here’s a secret for ya…my hand it raised 😉
Happy Tuesday Lovers! Ok I know it’s fall and that usually means sweaters, scarves, coats and tons of layers but maybe for just this once (or maybe a few times more to come) I want to go against the grain and go back to my old time favs…neon, open toe sandals, graphic tees and light wash jeans! Did I mention how much I dislike the cold weather? Well I must say for being born and raised in New York, it hasn’t made me any better at dealing with the temperature drop, dark skies or bitter cold…and I am truly contemplating a move to a warmer climate (still thinking about whether this is my impulse reaction to the beginning of winter in NYC or if it is a true feeling I should jump on….guess we will have to wait and see).Now to be completely honest this light weight neon moto jacket from Karen Kane (simialr available at Last Call Neiman Marcus here) doesn’t truly keep me warm…but it makes one hell of statement 😉 Statement necklace, statement jacket…what more can a gal ask for!This moto jacket was the perfect piece to layer over a basic graphic tee like this ‘Holy Chic‘ one from Old Navy (unfortunately it is no longer available but my love Rebecca Minkoff makes one here).I love a great fitting light wash jean…especially when I cuff them over like I did in this post. I know light wash is traditionally for spring or summer, but I am a firm believer that these jeans can be transitioned into fall with boots or chic pumps for any occasion. I found a great pair of light wash jeans from Nordstrom on SALEhere.Now for the shoes and bag…all that matters right? 😉I love this Rebecca Minkoff ‘Affair Bag’ because it is a unique style that they no longer make. Yes, I have the black one which is pretty common, but when I spotted this tan bag with the neon trim I instantly fell in love…any hint of neon makes me smile 🙂My nude ankle strap heels are reminiscent of the Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ Sandal…except the version I am wearing is a quarter of the price 😉 Hey I love a great ‘Look For Less’…what fashionista doesn’t!| *Click To Shop This Post* |
Happy Wednesday Loves! Finally sharing my NYFW diary part 2 from my day two adventures at NYFW! It was a busy day…there was the Storefront X RePop Room Brunch where I stopped by to see my friend Marrin Costello and her fabulous jewels…then I was off to Fashion Shenzen a runway show at Lincoln Center showcasing different Chinese designers and their impeccable designs. After visiting Lincoln Center I was off to the Kendra Scott showroom where I tried on some bling and even got to keep a beauty as well 😉 Lastly, the day wouldn’t be complete without an outfit change for my last event with Simple Skin Care and Caravan Studios at the Carlton Hotel! Wouldn’t be a brunch without starting off with a little green juice…in a shot glass 😉 I love Marrin’s pieces they are gorgeous with the druszy’s…I’m slightly obsessed. I actually connected with Marrin Costello through my blogger gal pal Cara…that’s what I love about blogging…networking and always meeting new people and making new friends, especially friends that are talented jewelry designers 😉 Next up Fashion Shenzen. They had a show at Lincoln Center and a presentation at the Hudson. Personally, while I love a classic runway show…for blogging purposes, presentations are so much nicer to snap pictures at! After some fashion came some more bling at the Kendra Scott showroom. At the Reward Style party, Kendra Scott gifted bloggers this gorgeous druszy ring and invited us to their showroom the next day for some more sparkle…naturally I had to take a photo of my bling. After getting blinged out it was time for an outfit change and I was off to the Caravan and Simply Skin Care party that took place in the penthouse of the Carlton Hotel on….Madison Avenue, Missy made her way back to Madison ;)! NYFW Day Two Night Look:
What do I love more than a chic moto jacket? A bright NEON moto jacket! I have to say this outfit is one of my favorites on the blog so far. Karen Kane was so sweet and sent me this lovely jacket and while my family looked at me like how and when will you ever wear that, I was beyond thrilled. Moto Jackets have become quite popular recently and this one, with it’s unique color is totally fun and unexpected!
Wear it for date night, sunday brunch with the girls or simply out and about when your feeling like grabbing a little extra attention. This jacket is a great piece for every fashionistas closet!
I love this outfit because it’s fun and refreshing…not to mention I feel totally sexy in it and what girl doesn’t want that?! Add a few sparkly accessories like my Topshop for Nordstrom jewels and your ready for anything!
