Florals & Stripes pt. 1

Happy Thursday! The work week is almost over and I don't know about you guys, but I could not be more excited for the weekend to get here! 

A trend we've been seeing a lot of, which I'm loving, is mixing patterns! A few years ago, mixing florals and stripes would have been a big faux-pas but now, it can really add an edge of glam to any outfit! While home in MA last weekend, I decided to whip-up two different outfits that show mixing florals and stripes can be cute, girly, and glam all at once!  Here's one of the looks:



To say that I'm obsessed with my Prabal Gurung for Target skirt is a complete understatement. I know it's more of a spring skirt but I love it too much to wait a few more weeks... plus pairing it with black tights and booties make it more of a winter look! 

Having a twirl moment... how does one wear such a skirt and not??





Shirt: H&M (old) // Skirt: Prabal Gurung for Target // Tights: Hue // Booties: Bandolino // Scarf: J. Crew // Bag: Coach // Watch: MK // Sunnies: Color of Optics // Jewelry: T.J. Maxx // Rings: BCBG and David Yurman


Caught in the act... lip gloss touch up!

Keep an eye out for my next floral & stripes post!

Accessory Spotlight: Stella & Dot

This Stella & Dot Bryant Park Scarf is the cutest and I must have it. I love the pink/orange combo with the mix of shapes and elephants... and did I mention I love elephants?! It's the perfect spring accessory to dress up a weekend-look during the day or spruce up a work outfit during the week! Not to mention, how cute does this look with a chambray shirt and gold jewels... my go-to Sunday outfit. 

 The Stella & Dot description states that elephants symbolize good luck, happiness, and longevity... how fitting for a 20-something girl new to NYC who's just trying to enjoy life one day at a time.  Let me repeat... this is a MUST.

Oscars 2013: My Top Picks

As much as I love the Oscars, it always makes me sad to see awards season come to an end. Thankfully, the fashion never ends and the Oscars are THE night for the ladies and gents to strut their stuff in stunning couture. Two major themes we saw on the red carpet, which I loved, were white/blush tones and black embellishments. Here are my favorites:

Halle Berry in Versace // Naomi Watts in Armani Prive // Sandra Bullock in Elie Saab // Stacey Kiebler in Naeem Khan

Amanda Seyfried in Alexander McQueen // Charlize Theron in Dior Couture // Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture // Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive
 And while it wasn't a trend, I just love Kerry Washington in this Miu Miu gown.

Well... until next year!

Who did you think looked the best last night??

Snowflakes

Happy Oscar Day!! One of my favorite days of the year is among us and I could not be more excited! As I sit here writing to you all, I am watching the E! News Red Carpet Live and am anxiously awaiting for all the stars to arrive.

I came home to MA this weekend for a little R&R with my family and boyfriend, unaware that a snow storm was coming. It was just too beautiful to not acknowledge, so my boyfriend and I had an impromptu photo shoot in the snow!

Rachel Zoe Fall 2013

First off, just to preface this post with I idolize Rachel Zoe... seriously, she's so maj.  Needless to say, I would have died to be at her runway show today instead of in the office.  But since I wasn't, I am admiring from afar and swooning over her upcoming collection. These pictures... I die. 










This collection has all fall essentials - chunky sweaters, plaid patterns, baggy leather pants, amazing jackets with faux fur collars and lapels... ugh, I just love it all.

And the woman herself... she's just so chic!
