Sunday Styles

Crisp fall weather means one thing…cozy cardigans…and lots of mocha lattes.

Sundays are always filled with running countless errands around the city — instead of grabbing your go-to black leggings (which I fully support), switch things up with an oversized cardigan and a great pair of denim.

I’ve been loving the two-tone denim look for a new take on your favorite pair of jeans. This pair from American Eagle Outfitters is one of the latest fits from the brand – the Vintage Hi-Rise. At first you might be confused on how to wear the two-tone style but think of them as a statement pair of jeans when you want to switch things up.

I love a dramatic cardi in these cooler months. It’s easy to throw on and be comfortable but the length adds a new level of chic.

It’s been all about the menswear loafer — whether or not you’ve got your hands on the Gucci loafer (#goals) you can still have this trend in your wardrobe by so many brands offering a similar look without breaking the bank. I scored these over a year ago from Target — yes Target. Fun fact, these were on major clearance for $8.00 – talk about deal of a century! I’m still beaming. That’s cheaper than your Chipotle burrito bowl which means more money for guac. #winning

Layered with a simple white tee and an addition of round  Ray-Bans  and gold hoop earrings, this is an easy breezy outfit to wear while checking off your to-do list and meeting up with your girls for brunch.

CROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT

IMG_454388499-1

The crop top has become a summer staple in my wardrobe. Surprisingly versatile, you can dress it up or down.

I love this style from American Eagle Outfitters that has a low ballerina back. The black and white stripes make it classic and easy to pair with anything from denim to a maxi skirt.

For this look, I wore my hi-waisted “Mom jeans”, also from AEO. I love when people ask if they are a vintage pair of denim that I’ve had in my closet for ages. Best compliment ever.

A hi-waisted jean is a key pairing with any crop top. Be sure to check out the amazing hi-rise selection AEO has to offer. From jeggings, to skinny jeans to flares —you’ll be sure to find a style that is super flattering on you.

Add a pair of statement heels and you’re ready for a fun night out!

NYFW – Fall/Winter 2014

“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week.”

Carrie Bradshaw said it best. However, now Fashion Week isn’t limited to the women of New York, the runways have never been more accessible thanks to something called the Internet. With top designers giving us live-streams, instagrams and tweets, it’s almost impossible to not see their collection!

Over the weekend, I was loving life watching the Alexander Wang show not from Brooklyn — but on my couch in some very chic sweatpants. It was hard to narrow down my favorites from this Fashion Week but I gained some inspiration from none other than Queen Bey and decided to give you a visual album of my top picks!

Steven Alan — Sea of Neutrals. I could literally live in his entire presentation. Greys, creams and navys — what more could a girl want? I’ll take one of each, thanks. J. Crew — You had me at sequin pants. I am so happy this is still a thing — call me cheesy but I appreciate sequins for far more occasions than New Years. We deserve to sparkle on more days than one! The mix of oversized coats to cool metallics was what we call a dream. Rebecca Minkoff — She always nails that cool girl style. Loving the midi length skirts with sporty jackets — I’m so happy the varsity trend is here to stay! Rebecca Taylor — One collection where I can honestly say I would wear everything! From the cool over-sized coats to sexy short dresses — this is the ultimate wardrobe of the “model-off-duty” and will be my inspiration for the next few months/life. Joie — Menswear. Over-sized. Grey. What more do I need to say? I feel like every woman needs a floor-length coat! It’s all about fashion and function — this coat would give me both! Win-win. Tory Burch — Pleats, high-neck collars, thigh-high socks and a mix of textures were such a statement. I am obsessed with this look! DKNY — All up in my eye. I now am committing to rocking my all black Yankee hat and not letting it sit on the shelf collecting dust. In other words, we can all be Jay Z. Opening Ceremony — You can wear black and blue together. Cobalt clearly isn’t going anywhere — embrace this color that is already in your closet! Victoria Beckham — Let’s face it, we all wanted to be Posh — and we still want to be Posh! I am loving the beautiful white sheer dresses with a classic menswear oxford shoe. Opposites attract. Wes Gordon — Loving the deep V-neck dresses with color-blocking. Maroon and soft blues never looked so good. The mustard yellow dress I am still dying over and would look amazing on a variety of skin-tones. Prabal Gurung — 4 words: Joan. Smalls. Finale. Dress. From bold hues to thigh-high slits — these dresses are for sure to end up on the best dressed list — I can’t wait to see which lucky A-lister will get to rock them! Naeem Khan — Absolutely stunning. A mix of beautifully embroidered dresses to that incredible green feathered gown! Love!
