♥ Fall in Central Park…there’s nothing quite like it. The crisp fall air, the changing of leaves, the fall fashion…I just love it all! So naturally when I was in NYC just a few weeks ago I had to head to Central Park and embrace the changing seasons.
There’s something romantic and magical about Central Park in the fall and I was soaking up every minute of it!
When I shot this look it was cool in the morning + warmer in the afternoon so this look worked out perfectly since it was warm on top + cool on the bottom!
I love polka dots year round, they are fun, stylish + can be chic as can be when styled the right way like I did here. The sweater I am wearing here is from Majorelle via REVOLVE. I love Majorelle because of the feminine style of their pieces and this sweater is no exception. This sweater is so cozy and to dress it up for a NYC fall I paired it with this black skater skirt.
To add a bright ‘Pop Of Color‘ I paired this look with red suede pumps + my red Gucci bag. I love adding pops of color to any look, especially in the fall + winter with neutral tones to make the look bold for any occasion. I find red to be such a classic color that is great to match with anything so I love anytime I can add new red pieces to my wardrobe like these.
Get it? Because I am wearing a checkered print blazer haha :p Anyways I’ve had a super swamped week this week and this weekend is going to be a pretty hectic one as well! I am currently packing to head to Washington for a fun Back To School themed event at the Capital Mall in Olympia, Washington which I am so excited for! I love to travel, especially when I get to create amazing content like the images in this post from my recent NYC trip.
When I put this look together and brought it to NYC i instantly thought Gossip Girl! I feel like Blair Waldorf would totally rock this on the Upper East Side, shopping on Madison Avenue hehe :p I’ve always been a girly girl, always obsessed with pastel hues + chic blazers and of course pointed toe pumps, so this outfit combined my love of all these trends into this perfect look that you’ll definitely want to add to your wardrobe.
This was the first trip I had to visit NYC in such a long time since I moved and it was such a breath of fresh air to shoot gorgeous city content in my forever home with a renewed outlook + perspective. When you live somewhere and shoot in the same areas all the time, creativity can be drained but heading back to NYC sparked my excitement and it was so great to do something different other than my traditional colored walls for a change.
That is why I am excited about the trip to Washington this weekend! Exploring a new city I’ve never been to, shooting new content + making new memories with my boo…what could be better?!
Anytime I travel, I always bring a neutral bag to style for work or play like this Chanel bag AND I always bring neutral pumps to instantly bring any look from day to night.
I also tend to pack a blazer or too so I am ready for anything that comes up during my trip!
One of the things I love about blogging and working in the fashion industry is the opportunity to connect and collaborate with new, exciting and emerging designers…now while the designer I am referring to in this post is far from emerging, she is new to many…Aimee Kestenberg. I first met Aimee a couple of years ago while working at my first full time job out of college. She was showing her gorgeous bags at a New York city tradeshow and I loved her style, personality and of course her handbags! So when I discovered Aimee had yet to work with any bloggers I assured her that the world had to see her fabulous styles and I was just the person to help share them (well at least I wanted to be the person to share them haha!) So Aimee and I have teamed up to bring you a stylish giveaway…YOU can enter to win a camo satchel just like mine so we can be #twinning 😉 How adorable right?! haha but for real who wants a free handbag? Read on to find out more…
I kept my look simple because I wanted the bag to take focus (this bag is not yet available…it’s a brand new design for Aimee, but stay tuned for when it will be available). Sometimes all black everything really does wonders when you are wearing a statement piece like a camo bag.
With my new job at Kleinfeld I am required to wear ‘All Black Everything‘ three days out of the week, so it is safe to say my closet is now stocked up on black pieces like this Apt. 9 Peasant Top + black Karen Kane Faux Fur Vest. To add a little variation I wore dark wash boot cut jeans. I seriously haven’t worn let alone looked at my boot cut jeans since college…skinny jeans and pointe pants have over taken my closet but for today’s post why not whip them out of retirement and get some good use out of them :p
And now the shoe + bag game. In the spirit of keeping things simple, you can never go wrong with chic black pumps like these ones. Even my sunglasses I kept simple with my black aviators. I wanted this Aimee Kestenberg satchel to take center stage. Since I’ve gotten it, I’ve worn it everyday to work. It is the perfect back for a commuter like myself and with the camo print it adds a little ‘pop‘ of color and print to an otherwise simple bag. Check out how you could win this satchel for yourself below!
