I’m not usually a shorts girl but when I saw this sweet take on denim cut-offs, I couldn’t say no. The slightly higher waist and pretty, floral print adds a little extra polish that my regular jean shorts don’t have. I kept it casual this weekend by pairing them with a basic tee and braided belt, but stay tuned for a dressed-up look!

Black Out

Back to harsh, cold Winter/reality here in NYC… and I’ve already forgotten about those Springtime pastels, florals, and brights and reverted to black from head to toe. Here’s an easy weekend look that can transition to dinner and drinks by switching up the shoes… Happy Friday, everyone!

Weekends in the Fall are my all-time favorite. The weather is crisp, the air has a unique aroma (maybe not so much in NYC, but any New Englander knows what I mean), and the ambience is very relaxed and content. And, I for one, am a huge fan of early Fall fashion, the time right before any serious layering is required. In particular, I love sweaters. I may or may not have three or five identical sweaters to this one that I wear with jeans, over dresses, with maxi skirts, or with leggings on any given Fall weekend.  They are the perfect combination of cozy and classic.

It’s raining again… big surprise. But in spite of the weather, I am wearing whatever I want. This is my go-to warm weather dress, and I’ve probably worn it three times already this season. Shocking, I know. (For those who don’t know, that is an unheard of statistic for me)… Anyway, my fingers are crossed for nice weather this weekend!
