Age Old Rules Don’t Apply

 

I am all for following the rules but not when it comes to fashion.  I believe that one’s wardrobe should be a reflection of their own personal style.  The age old rule that you can’t wear white after Labor Day is totally outdated. Fashion is ever changing and it doesn’t have to follow rules. The choice to wear white during any season is yours.

This look is just an example of how you can wear white during the winter months. I’m featuring white skinny jeans by BLANKNYC, a cream colored top from Express and layered with a denim button down and a super soft, beige, faux fur, vest (both staple pieces in my wardrobe).

It’s all about layering, especially with this wacky New York weather. When it’s 70 degrees one day and 20 degrees the next, you need to be prepared for anything, and layering is the answer. Simply add or take away a layer depending on the weather.  This denim button down is so versatile. It can be worn over a flannel, a tee shirt, on it’s own, or a dress….so basically anything. I even take it on vacation with me and throw  it on over my swimsuit by the pool.

Get your white on and layer away!

The Perfect Winter Accessory

The cold weather of winter months make it a challenge to be cute and stylish. But scarves, which have become a must- have accessory for any season, combine warmth and style. This cold weather street style is effortlessly casual and chic. In this look I am wearing  dark skinny denim, chestnut peep toed booties and an over-sized, off the shoulder, olive colored, sweater. Capping off this ensemble with a blanket scarf from Zara, which pulls it all together.  You will love this scarf. It is super soft and cozy with vibrant colors in a plaid pattern to spice up the other earth tone colors. It’s perfect for fall and winter.

 

 

 

A New York State of Mind

 

I live in a small town roughly three and a half hours from New York City. My best friend lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, so I find myself spending a lot of time there. I find that there is something about the energy of the city that makes me feel more alive. It’s almost as if there are no rules, and you can dream as big as the five boroughs combined. When it comes to NYC style fashion, anything goes. NYC is a place where trends are made, rules are broken, and your clothing can represent your style, personality, or just simply your mood on any particular day.

This look has a very casual feel, perfect for an average Saturday afternoon meandering in the city.  I am wearing a Denim and Supply Tee by Ralph Lauren.  It’s super soft to touch and the boyfriend fit is very comfortable. Leggings were a simple choice and can be used to pull off a variety of looks. Camel peep toed booties are the perfect shoes to pull this look together and I added a pop of color with this pink, 27 inch, Soft Ricky bag from the Ralph Lauren Collection. Shop Now
