All Saints

VIEW FROM THE TOP

Rooftops are probably one of my favorite things about NYC. There’s something about being sky high among the tall buildings and feeling like you’re on top of the world. You can feel this way at The Skylark — a hidden gem in midtown Manhattan.

When you’re looking for a great spot to hang with your friends after work, The Skylark is the perfect Monday-Friday lounge. Besides the Instagramworthy views, the menu offers some delicious items that are for sure to leave your work worries behind.

I had the pleasure of checking out this NYC hotspot on a Friday evening. For these early Fall nights, I love a great shirt dress. This one is a neutral number from Forever 21. That’s right — this dress was a steal and the perfect day to night silhouette.

I love shades of white and cream that allows your summer tan to pop for a perfect contrast. To add a bit of color, I added these fun turquoise earrings from H&M – another steal for under $13.00!

I added my Scotch & Soda beaded clutch I scored at a sample sale last summer and my go-to All Saints pumps and I was ready to hit the city in style. To make this dress transition into the cooler weather we’ve been feeling lately, I love a great structured blazer on top or your favorite leather bomber jacket to edge it up.

Be sure to check out the Skylark to enjoy amazing views of the city that never sleeps. 🙂

 50 shades of grey — almost.

I live in grey. From my wardrobe to my bedroom — it is by far my favorite hue. One look I love is wearing this neutral from head to toe.

This coat I first discovered on Instagram and instantly took a screenshot. After dreaming about it for a week, I purchased at Aritzia and was so excited to wear it.

I wanted an alternative to my black coat this winter, and sometimes being in a sea of puffers around the city can get a little boring — having a statement coat to mix in every now and then is a great way to switch up your look.

I layered my coat with this dream of a sweatshirt I found at Forever 21. Under 20 bucks, I regret not buying two!

My jeans are Denim X — the latest fit from American Eagle Outfitters. They feel so soft, almost like a second-skin. The fabric has a ton of stretch and keeps their form. No one likes a saggy skinny jean!

My shoes are All Saints, I scored them last summer — they have become a staple in my closet and are surprisingly comfortable.

You can easily recreate this look with my picks below — who knew one color could be so versatile  – how will you wear it?

MET YOUR MATCH

Everyone has that pair of jeans that they can’t live without — and for me, that pair is my American Eagle Outfitters Hi-Rise Jegging in a perfectly faded charcoal grey. Sure, it might be your not so typical blue jean but I literally live in this neutral and can’t seem to take them off!

On a beautiful Saturday in the city, I was shopping around the Meatpacking District and popped into All Saints where I usually walk around in awe of their sea of grey selection…and there they were — the perfect pump in a beautifully distressed leather in faded charcoal grey. I had to have them! I tried them on with my grey jeans and had that “aha-moment”, my jeans had met their match!

Paired with my favorite white AE tee (which I could also analyze for hours…future post?), this is an incredibly easy outfit to take day to night. My favorite chambray shirt tied around my waist nods to the 90’s grunge trend we’ve been seeing and adds function for when it gets cooler at night.

For some color, I scored this Scotch & Soda clutch with awesome beaded detail that adds some texture to my look. The finishing touch? My latest sunglasses obsession — these mod-inspired cat-eye shades by Kate Spade Saturday. I love that instant edge they add to any outfit, and I dig the all-black frames and lenses.

What’s your perfect match?
