I wore this outfit to peruse a Farmer’s Market with the manfriend last weekend… I balanced out the femininity of the floral skirt with a basic v-neck T and a worn-in parka. I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating that maxi skirts and dresses look effortlessly chic and are insanely comfortable, which makes for a perfect weekend get-up.
To transition this mixed-print Tee to a fun date night, I paired it with a high-waist skirt in an on-season green hue and sexy ankle-strap sandals. I also added gold jewelry to make the look a little extra special. Other great options for a date night include a leather skirt or shorts, skinny jeans and pumps, or a romantic, pleated midi-skirt. How would you style this Tee for a night out? Stay tuned for the final look: comfortable and chic for daytime!
Wearing – Madewell tee, H&M skirt (old, similar), Steve Madden sandals c/o (last seen here), Via Spiga belt (old, similar), vintage collar necklace (love this version), gifted bangle, Presh wrap bracelet, Gorjana rings (here and here)
This is part one in a 3-look series featuring this mixed pattern tee from Madewell. I used this piece in so many Lookbooks for my clients (sign up for a styling session here), that I knew I had to have it! To show how versatile this floral and striped top can be, I styled it for work, day, and a date-night using pieces from my own wardrobe. What do you think of this look for the office? Stay tuned for more ways to wear this Spring top!
Just thought I’d give you a peek at a typical work outfit for me. My office is conservative, so in the winter I have stuck pretty close to a trousers and blouse formula. To keep my personality, I layer on some jewelry, add a fun belt, or swap in some trendy shoes. Sidenote: I love that the weather is starting to warm up in New York, because it means I can wear my many trench coats. To me, nothing is more classic and sophisticated than a great trench coat. I look for pieces with a special detail like the color-blocking in this version. What is your go-to Spring jacket?
Wearing (faux) leather leggings with your coziest sweater is a great alternative to jeans for a laid-back weekend look. I even transitioned this look to evening (a casual dinner party) by swapping the loafers for heels and adding a sheer black tank underneath instead of the white button-down.
This puffer has been in my closet since HS, but until recently it has been gathering dust toward the back. I was inspired by a few bloggers and street-style shots featuring puffer vests (like here and here), so I put this look together for the weekend. What do you think? Is the puffer the new chic topper for the weekend?
I hemmed and hawed over the Zara pants I posted yesterday (here)… I wasn’t sure how versatile they could be given the pink-ish hue and texture. I pulled the trigger anyway, and have found them to be surprisingly functional. I’ve put together three different looks for play, work, and a holiday party using this similar version by Malene Birger.
Look 1: The best way to dress down trousers is to add a comfortable sweater and flats. Wrap a leopard-print scarf around your shoulders, and you have a modern Audrey Hepburn-look.
I hate tights. First of all, with a name like ‘tights,’ how comfortable can they be? Second, they inevitably rip so you have to constantly buy new pairs. And don’t even get me started on how tangled I get every time I have to go to the ladies room. What I’m trying to say is, tights are a worst case scenario for me. Therefore, if I go out for drinks during the cooler months, I tend toward pants so that I can avoid any pantyhose debacles.
Believe it or not, faux leather pants can be surprisingly versatile. I pair them with anything silky and/or sheer with a boyfriend blazer and bold jewelry (like this statement necklace) for a night out. Then for day, I would throw a comfy sweater over this outfit and swap my heels for leopard print loafers. What do you think? Do you wear your leather pants to death or are they still hanging in your closet with the tags on?
