New Look // Vintage Shorts + Jewel Tones for Spring

Happy Fashion Friday, all! I hope that wherever you are, the sun is shining and it’s 75 degrees. We’ve had a beautiful week of spring in New York, and it’s totally given my whole mood a lift. I’ve been planning more outdoor activities, like outdoor/rooftop bars, wandering around Central Park, and simply eating my lunch outside. There’s nothing quite as beautiful as spring, especially in the city.

Here’s a new look today, an early spring look for when it’s still too chilly to ditch the tights. I wore this to a Passover seder last week, and also to work!

New Look // Skater Skirt + Scalloped Hems and a Vintage Belt

I love scalloped hems! They’re such a fun, flirty trend that I have embraced wholeheartedly. I love it on skirts, shirts, and now sleeves! Simple, but adds such a touch of elegance and whimsy to any outfit. This outfit was born from a need to feel springy and yet still be warm, because, as I’ve been whining about for months, it’s still super cold here. Tights, suede boots, and a thick skirt are still necessary, but I can’t help but gravitate toward shorter sleeves and lighter clothes. Hope you like this outfit!

New Look // Deconstructed striped top + mod heels

Hi all! Spring is on the horizon, I very much hope. Today I’m sharing an outfit featuring one of my favorite trends: the “deconstructed” or redesigned button-down trend! I got this amazing top, with stripes, balloon sleeves, and a bow at the waist, and I was obsessed with it. It’s such a fun, unique spin on a regular ol’ white shirt, and it’s also perfect for work. I always think about clothes now in terms of whether or not it’s work-appropriate, and half the fun I have with fashion these days is finding ways to put together cute outfits that show off my personality, all the while being cognizant of work-appropriate attire! I think this definitely fits the bill.

New Look // Classic & Trendy LBD with pattern mixing

There’s nothing better than a little black dress. It’s always in style, it’s always flattering, and it’s always versatile. Here’s one I just bought that is flattering for my body type and even incorporates some trendy touches that I happen to love, namely, the tie at the neck and the billowy sleeves! The skater skirt is perfect for night and day, and I can even pull this off at work, maybe with a structured blazer?

New look // Blush pink jeans + bell sleeve top

Hey all and happy Saint Patrick’s Day! I celebrated last weekend and last night, with a home-cooked dinner of corned beef and cabbage. I’m not Irish, but there’s a huge Irish-American community around here and I love to get in the spirit. A pretty casual look today, with my favorite colors to wear: pink and white. I especially love blush pink and off-whites; they’re just so feminine and romantic to me.

I put this outfit together from a bit of old and a bit of new: this beaded white vest is old—I’ve had it since 2010! The rose-colored jeans I bought in the fall, and this bell-sleeve top is brand new! I’m really, really into bell/embellished sleeves this season, which will definitely translate well to spring and summer. Hope you like this look!

New Look // Floral embroidery jeans + white shirt combo

Hi all! Today I’ve got a not-so-classic blue jeans/white shirt combo for ya. A few weeks ago I DIYed these floral embroidery jeans and I could not wait to style them in an outfit here. The process was pretty simple: just some adhesive sheets, a lot of cutting, and ironing them on a pair of jeans I already had. I love the way they turned out! Hope you like this look.

New Look // Turtleneck under blue dress + magenta heels

Hi all! Today I have a fun look combining two of my current favorite colors: navy blue and magenta. I think this color combination is so fun, especially to brighten up a look during deep winter. Over here it’s not too cold anymore—seems like spring came early to New York! But since I’m still wearing stockings and light coats, this seems like a perfect outfit to start transitioning to the warmer weather!

New look // How to wear blue and black together

Happy Friday! Today I have a fun work look to share, built around these beautiful blue floral tights I received as a present from my cousins this Christmas. They’re gorgeous—I especially love the open weave of the leaf detail! These are definitely a statement piece, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to style a look with a color palette that gets a bad rep: blue and black.

New Look // Mixing patterns with a romantic dress

One of the reasons why I love winter fashion so much is the opportunity for layering, mixing patterns and textures, and creating energetic color combinations. You’ve got so much to work with in winter: stockings, dresses, layering shirts under or cardigans over a dress, scarves, etc. I love putting all the puzzle pieces together to create something fresh and new. In summer, my choices are more limited!
