The Best Bodysuit Ever

  It's not every day when I reach for a bodysuit but I've recently discovered the geniuses and functionality about them  again and I'm wondering why I've never took to them the first time.

   Let's face it, a great bodysuit has to be comfortable and stylish. Putting together this look was  one and done. I love the fact that it's one shoulder, all the better for showing off your décolletage right? Right! ;-)

   Besides the fact that this bodysuit is a quick solution to getting dressed, I'm also excited that it's color block which makes pairing any bottom with it a dream. Because the suit is sporty chic I decided to contrast the sporty feel of it with a chartreuse wrap midi skirt for a chic approach. Chartreuse is a great summer color and pairs well with just about anything.

  I was gifted with this bag from a good friend. It is actually a camera lens case but I decided I liked it better as a cool mini bag because of it's unusual shape.

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 :-)

The Best Vacation Dress

  French Riviera anyone? I may not be on a boat sailing coast to coast right now but it never hurts to envision it and then dress as if you are. I've never truly considered myself a "dress girl". I love pairing separates and the challenge of mixing and matching pieces. However, this dress totally caught me by surprise! I love every single detail, from the cinched top half of the dress, to the flexibility of wearing the dress with the sleeves to changing it into off-the- shoulder. I love designers who put extra thought into their garments. It truly makes all the difference and helps with creating a versatile wardrobe. Did I mention the opposite side of this dress is blue so it creates a different look completely.

  So you may want to know where I actually wore this outfit to. I've been having the most fun exploring my backyard which is NYC.  There are endless activities and I decided on this day to make a small trek to Liberty Island. I'm into open fields to picnic and lay about, small trails to visit historic fixtures and informative museums that leaves you curious for more. The weather was spectacular and I welcomed the cool breeze that tickled my face and wrestled my dress!

  I decided to belt the dress because it was slightly bigger on me then I thought. I added small amounts of accessories to keep the main look all about the fun and flirtiness of the dress. My net bag seems to compliment every summer look so it was a no brainer to go with this bag.

Easy Chic Outfit Recipe

You can not simply rush creativity. Some days it comes naturally for me and other times it's a long strenuous though-out process that usually ends up being scrapped, back to the drawing board, repeat, repeat, repeat, writer's block  and a whole conundrum of other blockage.

When this happens, what do you do?

Taking a walk around Harlem is usually the little spark I need to get some creative juices flowing and flying off the shelf.

About the outfit:

I've learned a while ago that investing in good basics, makes your life easier. I've truly worn this shirt so many times since purchasing it two years ago. It never fails to be that piece I reach for on a weekly basis. So with this shirt being, Step One in achieving that chic outfit formula we love to have on a daily basis.

Step Two, the bottoms. My denim is near and dear to my heart so as you could imagine I have that department on lock. I thrifted these high-rise denim shorts and simply frayed the edges. After several wash and dries, they fit amazing and has been another most worn Summer staple.

Step Three, the layer. So you may be over wearing this combo. However, mixing it up by adding a nice tailored vest like I did here (remember when I wore this same vest here) or a light weight cardigan can instantly take a basic look to next level chicness. 

Lastly, add amazing accessories like a nice pump, mule, faux fur hand bag (optional) and a great pair of statement earrings for a knock-out look. Outfit recipe complete!
