1. Summer Vacay Chic.

    So my family and I had to make a quick emergency trip to the Dominican Republic and I really loved my little sisters traveling to the DR outfit. It was simple, chic, but comfortable (great for traveling!)pieces that could easily be mixed and matched with other summer vacation essentials.
    Disclaimer: FYI When traveling to the Dominican Republic, it is customary to be dressed to the nines. There is no such thing as comfort wear. It’s a cultural thing.

  5. Sunday Brunch Chic.

    Oh how I love spring and summer and the necessary brunches that go along with it! And of course the fashion! Because I am always so dressed up during the weekdays, I’m more casual on the weekends with my usual weekend attire being an oversized slouchy top and skinnies.I love pairing three bright colors together like this lime green sweater, with this bright plaid pink scarf and cobalt blue skinny jeans. I accessorized with a black and gold detailed bag, faux large diamond studs, and neutral colored patterned oxfords for a chic cool girl look (I didn’t want to add more colors, so I went with neutral colored accessories). I finished with a fun side braid, the perfect next day hair do.

  6. Black Textures Chic.

    I love black. It’s super chic and universally flattering. One of my favorite styling looks is to wear all black, but do it with different textures to keep it fun and modern, and not funeral-ly. I paired my go-to faux leather skirt with a textured gingham plaid silk blouse. Since it was still chilly, I paired it with micro polka dot tights and my super comfy black booties before I store them away for spring/summer. I finished with silver/gray accessories, another great styling tip with black instead of my usual pop of color. Black chic c’est chic.

  8. Casual Lunch Chic.

    I was meeting my friend for lunch in the east village and I wanted to break out a a fun casual outfit, because it was the first real day of spring like weather! I did this green and white shaker knit sweater, ideal for a spring day, with a matching green belt and sapphire blue skinnies and yellow flats, because green, yellow and blue look great together with white as the neutral. I topped the outfit off with a white scarf with yellow polka dots, hardly visible in this pic. I finished with a gray bag, a simple white bracelet and my faux oversized studs.

  9. Sunday Chic: Winter Shorts Edition.

    So I wore this outfit galavanting around Astoria Queens, and I wanted a fun outfit for a girl’s “Sunday Funday.” In one of my old jobs, I was actually known as the queen of the winter shorts because i love a good tweed/dress short paired with tights and boots…my fave winter go to look to mix it up. In this outfit, I played with textures, colors, and patterns. I paired these tweed glen plaid shorts with this fun chunky polka dot sweater, because red a is great pop of color with black and white. The polka dot is black/blue, so it unifies with the black in the shorts. I opted for a gold belt to play with the warm tones in the sweater, because a silver belt would have just disappeared. To add some depth in the tights, I went with black striped textured tights, subtle enough to achieve this look. I did my simple black combat boots and a long pendant for a casual effect. Also, the pendant looks great with the v-neck and is a fun play against the polka dots. I threw my hair into a topknot and did a black  crossbody bag with gold/silver/pewter accents. Sunday Chic!

  10. School Girl Chic.

    So I wanted a fun way to wear this sleeveless color-blocked sweater dress because it was a Friday and I was going to dinner afterwards in midtown. The dress’s collar was a little school girl, so in keeping with the theme and staying in the neutral colors, I went with black mesh polka dot tights for a fun look. I did a boyfriend cardigan because a shorter one felt too formal for a fun Friday outfit and my trusted black booties. I added a black belt for some definition and I did silver earrings because a necklace would have competed with the embellished collar. I did matching black and silver bracelets to continue with the neutral palette. I finished the look with a pop of color with my bag, because who doesn’t love a pop of hot pink?
