Summer is officially here (even if we are still social distancing, quarantining, wearing masks + more) so that means it’s time to get excited for 4th Of July, one of my favorite days of summer! I love the backyard BBQs, the fireworks + the family fun this holiday brings while celebrating America’s Birthday!
One of my favorite things to do in preparation for the 4th Of July is embrace wearing Red, White + Blue + baking Cherry Pie so I combined my love of both with a little cherry print outfit from SHEIN!
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away and whether you are looking for the best gift for your boo, planning a night out with your friends or simply taking time for a little self love, V Day is all about love!
Love to me is being happy with who you are, what you are, who you are with + what you are doing…that’s why I do what I love + surround myself with those who have love in their hearts as well.
One of the things I love is dressing up, shooting new content + writing this blog. I’ve been running MissyOnMadison for over 7 years but every time I shoot + write I feel blessed to be doing what I love with who I love, my boyfriend! The ultimate love in my mind is love that is selfless + giving, that is the love my boyfriend has for me.
What I love is that my boyfriend loves me so much that he supports the things in life that I love. When I started MissyOnMadison I was doing it solo or had help here + there from family but the love + support I receive from my boyfriend is what makes me truly LOVE what I do because I have someone who enjoys helping me achieve my goals + make my dreams come true.
Because I am bursting with love hehe I felt it was only right to share this fun Valentine’s Day look. You can never go wrong with a red satin coat, skirt + white blouse like I am wearing here.
My shoes + bag are also perfect for Valentine’s Day. You can never go wrong with red pumps + a classic red Gucci Bag. I love wearing red accessories year round for an extra POP!
I hope ya’ll had a Happy Thanksgiving, Black Friday + Cyber Monday! I’ve been swamped getting my website fixed after it was down for two days, working on projects for clients and of course prepping more holiday content for the month ahead! From shooting new looks for NYE to Christmas outfits perfect for any occasion, my Holiday Style Guide is live and ready for you to find the ultimate holiday look! One of my go-to looks for the holiday however…anything red + green like I am wearing here!
I love the signature red + green look for the holiday season. These colors just make me feel merry + filled with cheer. One of my go-to pieces in every color? A signature tulle skirt! I love this tulle skirt so much that I bought it in every color it comes in so I can style it for various outfits + occasions. The red skirt is a must-have for the season because you can style it in so many ways like I did here with a wrap blouse or a bodysuit or a sweater etc.
I paired the look with one of my go-to Gucci belts. I love this belt so much I bought it in various colors to match with multiple looks year round, definitely worth the investment since you will get so much use out of it!
When I spotted these shoes from J Crew I knew I needed to have them. They sold out in the green color but they have them in different styles and I have found some similar styles at various retailers as well. They are the ultimate Christmas shoe if you ask me.
As for this bag, I have been eyeing it up for months and finally took the leap + bought it right before the holiday season because the red hue and gold hardware instantly made me think ‘Christmas’. You can’t go wrong with a chic Gucci bag in a forever classic color.
♥ 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.
I am so excited about today’s post ya’ll for SO many reasons! Not just am I obsessed with this WAYF floral wrap dress, BUT I can’t get over how gorgeous these Cherry Blossoms are at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. I have been holding on to these photos for a little bit since I got so swamped with some other content but now FINALLY I get to share this gorgeous shoot I did in NYC!
All of my years living in NYC I never visited the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, let alone heard of it (I know, I know I need to get more cultured) but in reality I was so busy with my day to day life, I never took time in NY to fully explore everything the city that never sleeps has to offer!
Anyways, I finally got to see the Cherry Blossoms in bloom + I paired the perfect dress with my surroundings, this WAYF floral wrap dress. Not only is this dress chic + affordable, it is beyond flattering on so many different figures!
I have been obsessed with WAYF for a while now (their spring + summer dresses have been at the forefront of my closet hehe :p) + their lightweight dresses are ideal for warm summer days, especially humid, hot NYC days (although these photos were shot in the dreery mist of an NYC day, not the hot, humid weather NYC is experiencing now), still looks amazing though right?!
I love neutral pieces paired with bright, bold colors, they make for the best combinations when it comes to chic style.
If there is one thing you should invest in, it is a great pair of nude pumps (I personally love these patent leather ones since they look chic, clean + stylish with every outfit).
Living in LA I don’t wear pumps for my day to day schedule anymore (unless I have business meetings or events) and being back in NYC, wearing my pumps it felt like home. When I was living in NY everyday I dressed up, everyday I felt like Carrie Bradshaw + everyday I opted to walk around NYC in pumps. Wearing these beauties surrounded by Cherry Blossoms on a gorgeous spring day in NY couldn’t have felt better ♥
A lot of people ask me which I like better, NY or LA?To be honest, both cities are polar opposites + I love each in their own way but no matter how far away I may be from the city that never sleeps, it will always be my home.
