Take It Up A Notch For Spring

  The flowers are blooming and I spent the day galavanting around the Natural History Museum. 

Note: Hitting one of the busiest museums midday is always a great idea. No line, no problem and lots of room to explore at your leisure.

  I'm cold by nature (pun totally intended lol) and I refuse to be fooled by the finicky weather here. Yesterday it was warm enough to sport my black turtleneck with my burgundy and black bomber. I feel I was more excited about my hair matching my bomber, almost creating an accidental monochromatic moment. Don't yah think? Well I stopped right there and added my white high-waist paper bag trousers. Remember when I styled them with pastels in this post here?  

 I have my red leather tote on repeat. Almost! Unfortunately the handle disagreed with my clinginess and parted ways. Yep the bag is done for now! 😭

Comment below your favorite way to style a bomber. Have a great day! :-)

  With good weather comes lots of exploring the city. I took the day to walk around Dumbo near the waterfront and in and out the cute neighborhoods nestled in it. What other way to show good weather appreciation then with your classic Spring/Summer staple the "denim jacket". I paired it with a floral embroidered leather mini skirt and my favorite Zara boot. I wore a simple white tank underneath and finished the look with my red shoulder bag which I found thrifting. 

What are your favorite areas to explore in NYC? List them below, I'd love to check them out.

  After what seem like undoubtedly the longest Winter ever has finally shined a little light on a grand Easter Sunday. Hoped everyone enjoyed their day because I certainly did. My Sunday started off with a stroll around the financial district near the river to take in some great views with my lovely. We arrived just in time to see the  beginning of the sunset. We decided to grab a cappuccino and pastry then commenced to take in the view from the comfort of the Brookfield mall that over looks the Hudson. After enjoying a beautiful sunset, we trotted off to Matro's Restaurant for an unbelievable dinner that left us rubbing our belly's. Food baby in full affect, no shame here! If you ever visit Matro's be sure to go during the live performance time if possible. From the food, service, ambiance, and songtress our Sunday ended on the loveliest of notes. 

How did you enjoy your Sunday? Comment below! :-)

How To Nail A Monochromatic Outfit

  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.
