Don’t we all wish we could wear ripped-up jeans to work? I work in an office where I can’t even wear jeans to work, let alone an outfit like this one. However, when I bought this Zara blazer, all I wanted to do with it was figure out how to make it more casual to fit my style. When it comes to getting dressed, I’m all about contrast. A slip dress with combat boots, a floral print with a leather jacket, and here, a supremely structured blazer with destroyed boyfriend jeans. This blazer is so gorgeous because it’s completely a menswear cut, with wide lapels, shoulder pads, and a double-breasted front, but it’s been rendered in a girly pale rose. I love that this silk camisole from Aritzia is just low enough to let a delicate lacy bralette peek out from behind it as well. Be sure to shop the links before for similar looks!

NEVER-ENDING SUMMER

It may be October, but it has yet to really feel like Fall to me here in NYC — this is all due to the fact that it stayed in the eighties throughout most of September. October is my favorite month, not only because it’s my birthday month, (coming up this weekend, woo!) but because it is usually my favorite weather and anyone who knows me knows that I love Halloween to an unhealthy degree. I’ve been talking about Halloween costumes since August…it’s not normal. 

Anyways, this unseasonably warm weather has caused me to make use of my summer items for longer than usual. This ASTR dress was my favorite piece I picked up this summer. It made its way with me to the streets of Portugal and back to NYC. I’ve worn it for a night out as well as for these hot city days. In Portugal, it felt appropriate to style it with espadrilles and lace-up leather sandals, but something about wearing it with sneakers and dark aviators feels particularly New York. I feel like this is a summer-only dress, but what do you think? Is there a way to transition this dress for fall that I haven’t thought of?

The end of summer is approaching and I’m holding on as tight as I can. Nothing makes a cooler look in the summer than than summer whites. I love the slightly Asian-inspired feeling of this shift dress and I’ve been craving white cat eye sunglasses since the beginning of summer. These Dune London sandals are the perfect height to walk around the city in and the light grey suede feels so fresh. Click the links below to shop similar looks!

LET’S GET GRAPHIC

I love the idea of a t-shirt dress in the summer because you can just throw it on with a pair of sandals or sneakers and you’re ready to go. It’s pretty much just an easy way to trick people into thinking you’re put together. This French Connection t-shirt dress is my favorite because of its boyish fit and fun darkly graphic design. I think this heavy looking pair of black gladiators make it a little edgy, but I would wear it with black and white sneakers as well for a sportier look. The breathable cotton is perfect for a hot summer day when you just can’t stand to wear another pair of shorts. Shop this and similar looks below!

LEATHER SKIRTS AND RAINBOW STRIPES

Top | Vince

Skirt| Free People

Espadrilles| Paul Smith

When the temperatures start to rise, I would almost always rather wear a skirt than a pair of short shorts. I truly think skirts are so much more comfortable for roaming around the city (even if I try to mind myself when I’m walking up the subway stairs so no one gets an eyeful). I love the unusual color of this vegan leather skirt from Free People. It’s a great piece to dress down during the daytime but also for going out at night. These bright yellow espadrilles from Paul Smith have such fun rainbow detailing and I think the green skirt really sets the color off! I get compliments from strangers every time I wear them. I chose to keep things easy and neutral up top by tucking in my favorite breezy cotton grey Vince tee. Click the links below to shop similar looks!

A TEA DRESS FOR ONE, PLEASE

There’s a reason tons of fashion blogs write about the ‘secrets to dressing like a French girl’ and ‘mastering French girl style’. Who doesn’t want to be effortlessly glamorous and look put together without trying too hard? I envy this look myself and try to replicate it with tousled hard and minimal makeup besides red lipstick. The latest look that epitomizes French girl style for me is the tea dress. This dress is sweet with its romantic and girly prints, yet sexy with its short hemline and body-hugging silhouette. French brand Rouje and Australian brand Réalisation Par have been the pioneers behind this look and while they make gorgeous dresses, I thought I would give you some more affordable options. All the pics above are shop-able!

DREAMING OF…

I really think that my style changes with the seasons. Summer brings out both my bohemian and feminine sides, making me long for loose-fitting gauzy fabrics and girly dresses. I’m in love with this Madewell dress because it’s linen, but mostly because of that bubblegum pink color. I’ve been searching for tie-front tops like this Asos one lately, but I really want to wear more color in the summer and I think red would look so good against a tan. Sooner or later I know I will give in to this gorgeous ASTR striped midi dress that I think looks perfectly breezy, but at the same time put together. I’m also really into the lush tropical prints that are everywhere right now, particularly on this cute high neck bikini. (And practical because you won’t burn your chest, right? That’s what I’m telling myself, anyway).

I’m beyond happy that denim skirts are a thing again because they’re pretty much all I wore when I was in middle school, only this time I’m not wearing them with flip-flops and colored leggings – thank God. I love the seventies vibe of a button-front mini, but I chose to pair it here with this amazing graphic blouse I found at Zara and my favorite pair of Rebecca Minkoff espadrilles. These espadrilles and I have SEEN things together. I was dying for a pair of beaded tassel earrings for the summer and Baublebar had the perfect pair for me. I’m sure I’ll be using them a ton as temperatures continue to rise here in NYC. Click the links below to shop similar looks!

I’m a firm believer in basics. I would rather have a wardrobe that consists of a few high quality basics than a million uber-trendy pieces of lower quality. That being said, this Rag & Bone striped tee is one of the most-worn items I own. I think these metallic Stuart Weitzman flats are such a fun way to dress up what would otherwise be a t-shirt and jeans. I’m always scared to buy accessories in bright colors even when I love them because I think I’ll use black more, but I proved myself wrong with this Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag. I think I use the red even more than any of my black bags! Click the links below to shop this look and similar looks.

As someone who lives the majority of her life in jeans, I was more than happy that this Spring’s trends included unique innovations in denim. One of my favorite forms of this trend is two-tone denim. I couldn’t believe it when I found this perfect pair at Express! I love to break out a trench coat in the Spring and this one is such a classic wardrobe staple that I know I will be using it for years to come. Shop the links below for similar looks!
