Rainy Day Grey

saks_collection_beanie_Star_8
          Hat / Sunnies / Sweater / Jacket / Skirt / Bag / Boots (old)- Similar here Grey and black are my typical go-tos, especially on a gloomy day! Mixing the slouchy grey sweater, oversized jacket and combat boots with a more structured piece like a pleated pleather skirt was fun and a really easy way to make a lazy look chic(ish). Fun fact about this beanie- I produced it for Saks Fifth Avenue (at work), and I'm suuuuuuper proud to wear it :) . The grey was my favorite (obvs), but it comes in a black and hot pink version too!...

Fall Florals

DARK-PRINT-SKIRT-1
      Jacket / Sunnies / Shirt / Skirt (Old Reformation)- Similar here and here / Sneaks   There are so many things about this look that I love. First of all, the skirt and tee are both Reformation, which we try and buy whenever we have spare shekels. As our favorite sustainable and socially conscious brand, we do our best to splurge on a few new special pieces whenever possible. Fortunately, their tees are actually incredibly affordable and this skirt was on sale! Second, the skirt print is perfect to dress up or down and we've done both! Following the theme of sustainability, we've been on the hunt for a perfect oversized (pre-loved) denim jacket since I borrowed one from...

Pastel Pointelle

PASTEL_POINTELLE_3
            Sunnies / Top / Watch / Bag (old)- Similar here / Nails / Jeans (old)- Similar here / Shoes (on sale) Still very happy about the quantity of pastel on the runways this fashion month. Especially for someone who only dips their pinky toe in when it comes to color, pastels are an easy way to switch up my repertoire (which mainly consists of denim and different shades of black and grey). The fact that these tones are continuing throughout Spring is V exciting! This top was a random purchase during a quick run into HM with a friend. I have severely limited my fast fashion purchases, but slipped up when I saw the feminine pointelle detail mixed...

Live-in Linen

Live_in_linen
        A version of this linen outfit was my lazy/casual 4th of July cover up, and never did I think I'd make a look out of it. I've had these pieces forever and my mother and aunt had them forever before me, but they've always seemed more lounge-y and "off-duty" to me. I was reminded just how perfect they are for summer when it exceeded 90 degrees and there was NOTHING else I wanted to wear. Unfortunately, the hat and linens are hand me downs, but I scoured the internet for similar pieces. See below! Hat (Vintage)- Similar here / Sunglasses- Crap Eyewear / Top (Vintage)- Similar here, here and here / Pants (Old)- Similar here / Shoes- Marc Fisher...

Last Minute Look // 4th of July

As symbolic as the American flag is, stylish it is not. Each year, the 4th of July brings out some of the worst flag inspired outfits ever, and this faux pas is so very avoidable. It IS possible to rep the red, white and blue, without looking kitschy. Below is a last minute look for any backyard bbq this weekend, and some easy no-fail rules to follow. In my opinion, white is the hardest color to wear since: a) it is expansive b) doesn't photograph well in bright sunlight. A headband, bandana or sunnies are perfect ways to get white in. Since denim screams americana, it is the perfect blue piece and likely already in your closet. Even though red doesn't look great on every skin tone, combining it with white and blue usually...

Stripes // Bright Pop of Color

stripes-color-3
            This sweater is one of the brighter things I've purchased, but I had a lot of fun styling it! It was a last minute impulse buy during the & Other Stories sale and definitely a good choice. The majority of items in this look are no longer available, but I linked VERY similar versions below! Hat / Coat / Sweater (Not avail.)- Similar here / Tunic (Old Zara)- Similar here / Skirt (Vintage)- Similar here / Boots / Bag / Stickers...

Buffalo Plaid + Faux Fur

      I found this buffalo plaid shirt dress on super sale last weekend and I've already worn it three times. The black and grey combo called out to me since those are the core colors in my wardrobe, especially this time of year. It's also softer than jammies and the perfect length for otk boots. Stay tuned because there will 100% be more looks with this gem. Thoughts? Beanie (borrowed because sadly I left mine on a bus)- My fave is Love Your Melon / Sunglasses- Karen Walker / Vest (Old)- Topshop (Similar here) / Shirtdress- & Other Stories (avail. in store) / Leggings- Spanx / Boots- Stuart Weitzman / Bag- Rebecca Minkoff...

Cables and Cold Shoulders

Cold-Shoulder-Cable-Knit-3
          I've always been a lover of chunky cable knits. The cold shoulder trend on the other hand, not so much. I try to stay away from any garment that aims to draw that much attention to any one body part. I'm not particularly self conscious of my shoulders, and always considered them to be a fairly innocuous body part, but I'd never quite lost my skepticism of this trend. That is, however, until I tried this specific one. Different aspects of the garment can definitely help or hurt the entire look. For example, if the cold shoulder is too open or too closed. Even the neckline makes a difference. I much prefer this style with a built up neck. Basically, whether this trend works,...

Florals for Fall

fall-florals-1
        Spring and Summer seem like the appropriate seasons to wear florals, but that doesn't mean that you should suddenly boycot the print when the leaves change. Personally, we rarely ever wear florals so it's just as likely we'd wear them in spring as we would in winter. If you do subscribe to the notion that flower prints are seasonal, there are a few factors that help bend the rule. The type and color of flowers, as well as the ground shade of the print make this dress totally okay in our book! This ruffle dress is from Zara and is also available in a blouse version. If you are okay with the print for fall/winter, but not with wearing chiffon- another "rule",...

How to Keep Your Casual Friday Chic

I love styling and creating interesting looks, but I'll be the first to admit that my feed isn't a true depiction of my weekly outfits. Rather, it is a lookbook where I interpret my favorite trends and fashion experiments. On the weekends when I am not shooting looks, I pretty much live in Adidas/Birkenstocks, jeans, and a graphic tee. Working in a more corporate end of the fashion industry, I am unable to bring certain styles into the workplace, regardless of how trendy they are. Even when athleisure was at its peak, sneakers (even fresh, clean ones) were only allowed on Fridays, and spandex was always a no-go. While I am a huge supporter of comfort in fashion on a daily basis, and...
