1. Transition Chic. Fall Edition. So we are full throttle in the fall season and before I pack away all my summer pieces, I want to get some last licks from some of my more transitional pieces. I wore this floral dress this summer by itself with white sandals, a white and silver belt, and a white necklace. My fall version is adding black tights, a black belt, color blocked flats (combat boots if it’s weekend!), and a boyfriend cardigan to offset the girly print. When going outside, I threw on a denim jacket (love this fun collarless version!) The key to fall/winter fashion is the art of layering! #plentybytracyreese dress sold at #lordandtaylor #nyandcompany belt and denim jacket #marcbymarcjacobs flats from #Bloomingdales #express necklace #urbanoutfitters handbag #hue tights #rayban sunglasses #CharlotteRusse and #JCPenny bracelets #weartowork #fashion #fashionista #nerdinniceclothes #workwear #fallfashion #floraldress #womensstyle #style #womensfashion #womensclothing #readytowear #fashiondiaries #whatiwore #wardroberemix #ootd #nycfashion #fashiononabudget


  2. Transition Chic. The last time i wore this dress p, it was summer time and i had paired it with a cardigan and sandals. My fall version is with a blazer and flats ( and maybe tights and booties in winter). So it’s Friday and I had an important meeting with new colleagues, so I always put my best dress forward to kick it up a notch. I’m all about making that first impression! And I love doing black and white with a pop of color! #bananarepublic dress from the #brmadmencollection #h&m blazer #michaelkors handbag #toryburch flats #nyandcompany necklace and belt #fashion #style #womensstyle #womensfashion #weartowork #readytowear #workstyle #whatiwore #wardroberemix #workwear #nycfashion #nycstyle #fallfashion #fashionista #fashiondiva #fashiondiaries #ootd #ootn #wiw #fashiononabudget #styleonabudget #workdress #workfashion #womensclothing #coloredblazer #tealblazer #revaflat


  3. Mixed Media Chic.
    Love mixing different prints and textures in neutral colors along with my signature pop of color! I would never have thought to pair a denim shirt with a chambray skirt!

  4. Falling into Fall Chic.

    Oh lord, don’t we all know how much I love a graphic printed dress (and awesome details, ahem the collar!), especially in this great summer into fall transition jewel toned color palette (jewel tones scream FALL….and holiday season!). Since the days are still a little warm with this very random Indian summer here in NYC, I’m still rocking my sandals in a dark color and draping a cardigan over me for the cool mornings and nights (I’ll probably add tights in the next few weeks). I didn’t want the outfit with all black accessories, so I opted for a gold bag. I did a dark tortoise shell sunglasses, because it went with the warm color scheme (I normally don’t do brown with black, but it worked with this ensemble). Falling into fall indeed.

  7. Summer Leather Chic: The Fashion Week Edition

    So this was my outfit at last weeks Inaugural Bronx Fashion Week last Saturday. Photocred goes to imdiego
    And dandyinthebronx for our impromptu fashion shoot outside the Andrew Freedman Home.
    It was a freakish 90 degree weather day, but I still wanted a fall forward outfit, so I did these great 4 inch seam cotton sateen shorts (Express makes the dress shorts) with a mixed media leather top and classic pumps instead of open toe shoes. I kept the palette black and white with a pop of color with my red cross body. Since we’re heading into fall, I wanted my pop to be jewel tone. I added a fun chunky plastic link necklace, because I love a good statement necklace and grey silver and black bracelets. Fashion show chic indeed.m

  8. Maxi Dress Chic.

    So it was a Sunday afternoon, and I was on my way to a performance show in the east village and I wanted a fun funky casual outfit. I love layering and making things look fresh and unique. I felt a maxi dress by itself was too fancy, so one trend I kept seeing was throwing a chambray shirt over a maxi dress to give it a cool casual look…I also love the contrast of red and chambray! Except when I did, I looked shapeless (mind you I’m barely 5ft tall, with an hourglass figure, so proportions are always key!). So I tied the shirt at the waist to give my look shape. I did a long silver pendant necklace, a great neutral piece. I did neutral strapped wedges, a yellow and white canvas bag, silver and white bracelets, and topped it all off with tortoise shell wayfarers.

  9. Palazzo Pant Chic: Weekday at Work to Saturday Night Out Edition

    One of my favorite all time summer staples is a fabulous printed pant. This can become tricky for me because I’m the height of a lawn gnome and curvy too. And soooo many trend pants this season, like a jump suit or a palazzo don’t come in petite lengths. But I came across this magical pair of palazzo pants that happened to be the perfect length for me without tailoring or having to be in a petite/short length! So the first look is me making the pants look work to after work dinner at restaurant week appropriate with a tailored knit top, light silver chain necklace, and a large tote. The second look is me making the pants Saturday night dinner and rooftop bar appropriate. For this look, I chose a simple white beater, to keep the emphasis on the pants, but still look casual, translucent statement jewelry, and a fun colored clutch. For both looks, I chose white tops because the print is already strong. I did silver and clear jewelry because it wasn’t too much and went with the scheme. And I did nude wedges because i wanted the focus on the pants. I did pops of color bags, with each drawing inspiration from the pants. Palazzo pant chic.

  10. Animal Print Chic.

    Ah, we all know how much I love prints! Especially a fun graphic one for the summer. And I’m all about putting your best dress forward, so this makes an ideal combination! I was meeting a friend for dinner after work at a cute fun trendy restaurant in the other boroughs, so I definitely wanted to bring the fun. During the work day, I paired it with a black cardigan to keep the look tame (in fall I’ll probably spur it with a black blazer). I chose to highlight the black in the outfit with black accessories and sandals because there are so many strong vibrant colors already at play. So I did simple black jeweled studs, a black and a translucent bracelet, black handbag, and my signature add a belt to every dress to emphasize the waist and give definition.
