How To Instantly Elevate Your Outfit

  I've found that pairing gold with everything is not only chic but a great way to elevate your style game. Things took a turn when all of my favorite silver accessories begin to pop out at me too. 

  The original formula for this look started with my gold blouse. Although I still wanted to remain casual I went for my color block  denim skirt that never fails to pull everything together. 

  My bag from Ebay had just arrived and I was more then anxious to test drive it. My studded strappy sandals gave the outfit an extra embellishment.

  After shimmying around in this blouse I decided it was time to test drive the look and what I discovered was that it's still too hot to wear this blouse. Can we say "HOT BOX"! This blouse left me wallowing in my own fashion sweat. I want lie I rushed home to take it off immediately. Such a rookie mistake to challenge the sun to a match. It won fair and square. lol! My next post however will be #ootd number two. A more subtle and less fussy look compared to the topper on this. 

  As summer sketches to an end I'll be sure to rework this blouse on a much cooler day. After all the shirt had me at first sight. :-)

The Rainbow Over Manhattan

  I'm seeing rainbows. I'm a colorful person by nature. Sometimes I take wearing color to the next level and flaunt it all at once. What better way to wear all the colors then with rainbows?

I must admit I've been a sucker for anything rainbow related. So much so that I even decided to take it up a notch and get matching rainbow accessories. Rainbow is defintely one of summers hottest trend and I rarely ever pass up a moment now to try it out. I scored a pair of rainbow hoop earrings to match with my rainbow tie front tube top and it was a magical pairing.

  I bought these stretch high-waist asymmetrical pants last year on sale from Boohoo and have worn them non-stop since. They are perfect all year round and super easy to style. I had a little walk around this cute neighborhood in west village and stumbled upon this pink house. It was the perfect back drop for my outfit.  Hope you all are enjoying your day :-)

How To Nail A Monochromatic Outfit

nyc street style

  Finally the weather in New York gave us a break with temperatures hitting the 70's. Cue in the crop top please! I ceased the moment to get out of a sweater. Finally! And reached for the nearest crop in arms length. You'll catch me rocking this exact top all through Spring and Summer as its the perfect transition shade ever.

  With warm temperatures out I still played it safe by pairing the look with my high wasted khaki denim pants. I layered a matching light weight khaki jacket on top for a little monochromatic moment.

  I layered a matching light weight khaki jacket on top for a little monochromatic moment. I love the cropped yet boxy feel of the jacket and how it too is a great transition piece. With Spring only a few weeks away I'm prepping slightly early with light weight jackets I can use as layers in Winter and stand alone pieces in the Spring/Summer months.

  To break up the monochromatic feel of this outfit I chose my newest purchase, these violet booties which I caught on sale at Zara for only $20. Yes you heard correctly. They were the last pair left in store. Just when I couldn't find anything I direly wanted upon exiting "BOOM" goes these babies hidden under a shelf on the floor!

  I spent this lovely day roaming around the Meatpacking district with Britt! You can check her out here for even more style posts!

How To Wear Pastels In The Winter -Holiday Party Edition

  This look is what I would call a "Happy Accident".  I wore this outfit to my jobs holiday party and received so many compliments that I decided to shoot in it as well. It was definitely not the traditional holiday look someone would typically reach for when attending a holiday party but in some cool way, it worked! And since when did I ever follow a rule when it comes to just about anything? (Lol!)

 Read on for more about this look.

  This look could easily work for a regular day around the city eating, meeting with friends, and shopping. Let's also note how often I've been wearing this coat. It was perhaps my best Winter investment and It'll surely be in more post to come. I'm completely obsessed with it! The paper bag pants where a summer staple for last year and they were quite easy to transition into my Winter looks. I paired it with my pastel pink sweater and lilac baret for the ultimate pastel palette.

  Shoes can make or break an outfit so I paired the look with these fun holographic ankle boots from Charlotte Russe. Keeping with the theme of the outfit I also rocked another favorite accessory of mine. My silver metallic cross-body clutch that's perfect for dressing an outfit up.

  As if the outfit wasn't complete enough. I decided to add one more star to the party. These  tassel earrings where perfect for completing the look.

I've been repeating this outfit combo a bit now. Pink with teal, is it that this coat seems to go with everything or am I still just a bit still obsessed with all things pink? Possibly both! Be sure to view my last post for more outfit inspo and check out the widget below to shop this look.
