Business black with some spunk

Okay where I work, we wear black Tuesdays through Thursdays. On Wednesdays, I try to fit in a little pink ;). Black, sophisticated and slimming. You know this girl loves a good blazer look- but I just added a little more fun to it with the leopard . Sorry about the bad lighting and shadows ūüė¶

Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl tie the knot

I have returned from Kingston, Jamaica where I spent 17 days on a service trip (something I did last summer as well). I have embarked on a whole new attitude towards life due to this journey. I will end up doing a separate post focusing on my experience in Kingston. Yet, no words can fully express my passion for service work and the beautiful people who roam this underestimated island.

A little over a week ago, the wonderful Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl tied the knot in Bedford, New York. It was a intimate ceremony, hence, the lack of photos from their big day.  

By far, Olivia’s street style is #1 in my books. I could attach 100 of her outfits and that would still not satisfy my love and connection to her personal¬†style. I mean come on, did you see what she wore to the¬†Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week shows? ahhh-mazing. At Dior, she brought a dose of cool to couture. ¬†

She is lucky enough to work with so many amazing designers, especially in the bridal department. She even stunned in Brides magazine a month before her own big day. I couldn’t begin to imagine what her own wedding gown would be like when I heard about the engagement. It was not a surprise the couple would opt for a nontraditional feel. She ended up rocking a three piece Carolina Herrera ensemble with a cashmere sweater, white SHORTS, and a satin skirt with lace embroidery. I also loved the blue Manolo Blahnik heels, lets say she took it from “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”.¬†She pulled it all together like the style pro she is.

Amp up that T-shirt and Jeans Look: OOTD

Effortlessly chic. It took me about a minute to put this look together; well, to think of.. because it actually took me 10 minutes to find the pieces I wanted in my crazy closet. I recently got this shirt at Joe Fresh in SoHo, it made an appearance in my last post. It has the basic white T feel to it, yet the opaque white gems make all the difference. I paired it with slimming boyfriend styled jeans from Zara and Bucco Capensis sandals.

Short and Sweet Trip to New York City

I have been begging my mom to take me to the city since I was 7 years old. So happy I waited, I ended up appreciating it so much more. It was perfect weather! what a beautiful city.

Over the years I have realized that one day I will be living there if I was serious about fashion. Hopefully I will go back this summer (:

I fell in love. Most of these pictures are from the same day- but I thought I would share my experience.

P.S. I HIGHLY recommend seeing If/Then with Idina Menzel. It was ahhh-mazing, like all other Broadway shows.

Happy Tuesday!

I’m starting to see a trend of big tortoise necklaces with large crystals, which gives it a more “modern” look. They are statement pieces that deserve a spot in every single one of your closets. In this collage, I incorporated more simple pieces that still represent this trend. These may be more wearable on a day to day basis. Of course, I had to include the monogram (: If I had to pick my favorite statement necklace it would have to be this one from baublebar. (picture from Sarahbelle93x). So sad its not for sale anymore!
