Orange+Fuschia

 

I nabbed both these shoes and faux leather jacket at the Zara sale and couldn’t wait to break them out this weekend. The orange and fuschia combination is so fresh and bright- you might be seeing more of this color combo to come!

Summer at the Met

Moving to New York has affected my style in many ways, but none other than wearing wearing simple dresses for summer. With this heat and humidity, I am constantly searching for breezy cotton dresses that are also sophisticated, so they transition from going to the Met during the day, to out at night (which is how I wore this dress this past weekend). It was so perfect, I am now thinking about buying it in every other color!

Shirtdress: Urban Outfitters (On sale now for $30!!). Shoes: H&M ($35!). Bag: J.Crew sample sale, but similar here. Necklace: Stefanie Marie Collection. Sunglasses: Karen Walker. Jewelry: Souvenir from India, Shotwell SF, Forever21

Thank you Monica for the pics!

Embracing Pink

It’s funny, growing up I refused to wear pink. A tomboy to the core, anything pink, lace or ruffly was my immediate turn-off. However, my mom was in town the past few days  and I finally took her to a Joe Fresh store where she treated me to one of these silk shirts. I already have 3… and although I teetered on buying this one, my mom loved the bold hue of this pink. My style is constantly evolving (hence the Safari), but I think going forward I will be able to embrace a bit more pink as long as I balance the outfit with some tougher elements as well. What do you think?

Blouse: Joe Fresh (similar here). Skirt: Madewell (on sale for $80 but they have extra 30% off in stores). Shoes: Zara. Necklace: J.crew sample sale. Bag: Badgley Mischka

Silk and Linen

There’s so much to say about this outfit. I love the colors and the bold colorblocked stripe of the top, and even more so I love that both the top and pants were on major sale at J.Crew. The only thing I am not completely in love with are the fabrics for both. Although you can wash both this type of silk blend and linen in your home washing machine, ironing is crucial. I suggest buying some spray starch to make your life easier!

Top: J.Crew (on sale for $35 with the current 30% off sale!). Pants: J.Crew (on sale for $56). Necklace: Bauble Bar. Sunnies: Karen Walker. Jewelry: Souvenir from India and Forever21. Shoes: Chinese Laundry

Flower Block

Color blocking and bright florals are my summer outfit recipe for beating this heat while still looking chic. I love how pairing bright colors like hot pink with solid black and white really makes the colors pop!

Checked Out

Spruce up your wardrobe with some fun (and maybe a little funky) shorts. These are so lightweight, and the fun check pattern pairs well with both a a crisp, tailored blouse and a loose white tee. And I’m officially declaring these heels the STEAL OF THE SEASON since for $35 you can not only wear neon- the trend of the season, but you can also easily stop traffic and hail a cab in the dead of night with them.

Heels: H&M (recent!!) Shorts: ASOS $34. Blouse: Banana Republic. Belt: Gap (similar here). Bracelets: Forever21 and Stefanie Marie (Etsy shop now open!). Sunnies: Paul Smith.
