TRACK PANTS

Spring has been slowly creeping up on us and although we’ve been getting slightly warmer weather we are still getting some colder days. To be honest I haven’t been in the floral and colorful mood and that’s why this look works for me. I have been loving the look of track pants lately and personally, I would have preferred a tucked-in graphic tee or turtleneck with this look but the hoodie just worked for this particular day. I’m not one to just wear an outfit for a shoot, if you see it here either I’ve worn this look already and decided to shoot it, I was wearing it that day or I plan on wearing it. I hate to follow blogs where I’m looking at outfits that are unrealistic for my lifestyle. Sometimes it’s pretty to look at or inspires a specific style but all in all, I want to see a look that I can see myself actually wearing. This will tell you a lot about my personality, I don’t like to fake relationships, I don’t like to pretend that I’m someone that I’m not and I usually will tell it like it is. I apply that same way of thinking to my blog and content. Sometimes I find that doing YouTube videos can come across slightly fake because I am trying to be more professional in that setting and being on camera can sometimes create an altered image but I am working toward feeling more comfortable with letting my personality show as transparent as I can. As I grow as a person and in this social world I want to continue to show my readers and viewers that I’m just a woman from New York City who happens to have a passion for sharing my interests with like-minded people. I will continue to grow and I hope those of you that are reading this will continue following along with me.

This became a bit more personal of a post than I thought it would be but I hope you enjoyed and check out the links for the products I’m wearing and also some similar options below.

GUCCI TEE

Wearing: Gucci T-shirt (similar) | H&M Faux Leather Pants | Helmut Lang Jacket | Stuart Weitzman Heels | Vintage Gucci Bag

Gucci t-shirts have become a huge trend recently and I’ve had this one for years. I typically don’t wear red but it was nice to switch it up a bit for once. I love the look of a casual t-shirt with leather pants and some heels.

ps. my toes were definitely freezing during this shoot.

WHAT TO WEAR: FALL 2016

screen-shot-2016-09-08-at-3-03-58-pm

As the fall season has begun I can’t help but want to add some new pieces to my wardrobe and I always start with some things I am lusting over and create looks from there. These are a few looks that can easily be worn multiple different ways but stand out alone as well.

LOOK 1 (left): Velvet and plaid are always fun to play into the fall season and pairing them together really seems to work. Specifically a grayish plaid is a really great current trend to look out for. I also love this top and it is also a current must have because of its off the shoulder detail. Pairing this look with a statement choker that has a large buckle definitely adds some edge to it and also these teal wrap around shoes are the perfect addition. I have this Opening Ceremony clutch/messenger in white with gold hardware but I think this all black leather one goes great with this look.

LOOK 2: Mixing different textures and fabrics is my favorite and fall is the perfect season for this! I love the ribbed mustard top paired with this long wool skirt. To break up this look a little I love the idea of adding a leather corset belt. This one is beautiful because of the intricate detailing and buckles. Throwing an oversized jean jacket over top would be perfect and these navy slides and you’re good to go with a look that will turn heads.

LOOK 3: This outfit excites me so much! I love pairing structured workwear for more casual attire. These olive trousers are amazing and I’d throw on a matching olive tight fitting turtleneck and this long navy vest-coat with some all white sneakers. I think adding the sneakers makes the look very casual but also adds a coolgirl vibe.

LOOK 4: Jumper dresses are very on trend right now and I think they are so cute. I love the idea of incorporating suede or corderoy into these jumpers. In order to make the look a little less school girl I think a knitted bootie would pair perfectly with this look.

I hope my little fall style vision board gives you inspiration on what to look for when shopping this fall! I’ve included multiple styles and options below for similar looks.

THE CHAMP IS HERE

Wearing: Vintage Champion Mens Shirt (similar here or here) | Y-3 Sneakers | Louis Vuitton Alma Purse | Aviator Glasses (similar)

This will probably be my last post without a jacket. I shot this look before this recent shift in weather. It’s been so gloomy lately, New York is starting to feel like Seattle. The sun is actually showing face for the first time today. I feel like I’m always reporting the weather, ha! Since I’m only 4’11 it’s easy for me to pull off wearing a T-shirt as a dress, others aren’t so lucky so I’d definitely recommend wearing a spandex skirt underneath. Throwing an oversized jean jacket or even a camo jacket would look great with this look for fall. These aviator glasses have been such a trend lately, I wore them in an outfit post earlier this summer (here) and I loved the look. Champion is another oldie but goodie that made a major comeback over the past two years. The classic vibe that they brought back to the brand is amazing, although this particular piece is vintage. I threw on my trusty Louis Vuitton Alma and my new Y-3’s that I featured in my birthday haul (here).

Hope you enjoyed the post! Are there any trends you’d like me to sample on my blog for fall?

LAYER FROM SUMMER TO FALL

fullsizeoutput_47

Hey… I’m back with a second post this week, I’m on a roll! Another left over from summer that I wanted to bring in with me to the fall season is delicate pieces like lace camisole and slip dresses. I posted a look a few months ago pairing a slip dress with a t-shirt underneath and now I figured I’d do the same with this lingerie-esque piece. I’ve had this sitting in my closet for way too long and never found an appropriate occasion to wear it because I’m not one to go too far with risque items like a lace camisole. Now that summer is over, it’s much easier to pair two unlikely pieces like this without sweating your ass off. I paired this with my denim cutoffs because it was still a bit warm when I shot this and some suede booties from last fall. I would have loved to throw a motorcycle jacket on top of this, but I’m no fool and couldn’t justify sweating for the shot, but I left some options for jackets below if you’re interested.

DENIM DREAMS

fullsizeoutput_14As we are still in the transition season, I could never decide if I should wear pants or dresses. I’m sure we all don’t live in the same location, but we’re all going through the change of season whether slightly or dramatically. Here in New York it’s been really beautiful, about 70’s during the day and drops to the high 60’s at night. I’ve been throwing jackets on top of my summer blouses and dresses and jeans with lighter tops. This is one look I frequent, I love pairing shorts with a jacket. For this look I decided to go with denim on denim which is a trend that rarely goes out of style and currently oversized denim jackets are all the rage. I wore it with a nude bodysuit and some new balance sneakers.

I’m so excited to start throwing jackets over my looks, although I love the summer I’m so excited for Fall and the festivities that come along with it. I’m already planning my weekends around pumpkin/apple picking, vineyards, haunted houses, and staying home watching my favorite fall movies like Hocus Pocus, Halloween (the first 7 that is!), Scream, The Craft, and Casper. I’m also so excited to decorate my home for Fall. I’m thinking of doing a few posts about that so stay tuned!
