Razzle Dazzle

If there’s any night to dress to impress, it’s New Year’s Eve, because there’s no better way to ring in a new year than wearing your best party outfit. 

My New Year’s Eve plans are quite different this year by just going to a house party instead of some NYC club, like I did last year, but I still might wear this metallic jumpsuit because I love it so much.  Plus, there are worse things in life than being the most overdressed party guest.

But, have no fear, if I don’t decide to wear this number on Monday night, I already got great use out of it when I was in London for my company’s extravagant holiday party. You should have heard all of  the compliments I received on this shiny, metallic jumpsuit. 

So, keep on scrolling for a little New Year’s Eve fashion inspiration, as well as an outfit idea for those days and nights beside New Year’s Eve when you want to be extra glamorous. 

Naturally, before my two week adventure in London, I did some shopping, and stumbled across the store Francesca’s, which is my favorite boutique for trendy jewelry and fun accessories. While browsing the store, I was impressed with the selection of party outfits for the holiday season. Immediately, my eyes were drawn to this jumpsuit, not only because we all know my love for jumpsuits, but also because of the shiny, metallic color.  I knew this piece would be a big hit for my holiday party and New Year’s Eve.

Since, my jumpsuit is sleeveless and unfortunately during this time of year you can’t get away without some sort of outer layer, I chose to wear this jumpsuit with a black, fringe shawl. I believe this shawl is from Lord and Taylor’s, but it’s my mom’s so I’ll have to ask her exactly where she got it. But for my holiday party, I paired this jumpsuit with a leather jacket, which looked just as nice. To be honest, I should have worn my leather jacket for this photoshoot because not sure if you can tell through my smiles, but I was freezing my butt off.

For accessories, I kept it pretty simple (well if you count those silver dangling statement earrings from Express simple) because this shimmery jumpsuit is obviously the center of attention.  As for my necklace, shoutout to my boyfriend for gifting me this beautiful silver delicate necklace. And then for my silver bangle shoutout to my mom for letting me wear it for this post, I’ll have to double check where the bracelet is from. 

Not only did my company fly us all out to London for its holiday party, but they also gifted me this stylish, snake skin like heeled booties. I believe they are from ASOS or some sort of London boutique I need to know the name of because I want to buy everything from that store. 

Well, that wraps up another style post, specifically my last style post of 2018. I hope everyone has a fun and safe New Year’s Eve, no matter what your plans may be. And here’s to another stylish and awesome 2019. Talk to you all next year.

So Fall

I have a love / hate relationship with fall.  I love the season for its fashion but hate the season knowing that winter is right around the corner.  I’m trying not to think about the long, cold, and snowy days ahead but embracing the jeans, chunky sweaters, and boots before I have to cover up my outfits with a bulky winter coat.  So keep on reading to see today’s look, which is what I like to call my so fall look because it features all of the fall fashion essentials and the beautiful colors of fall.

This sweater was a total impulse buy.  I was walking back to my apartment from Grand Central after a weekend back home in Connecticut and I stumbled across this pop up store called Mulberry & Grand.  After a quick glimpse of the store front window, I knew I couldn’t just walk by, I had to stop in (even though my bank account said otherwise). I was completely blown away with Mulberry & Grand’s collection of jewelry, clothing, and accessories.  I’m so proud of myself for only walking away with one sweater (the sweater I am wearing in today’s post) and a pair of earrings.  No sweater could perfectly embody the season of fall than this sweater with it’s beautiful burnt orange/rust color with subtle gold sparkles and all the fringe on the bottom and sleeves.  I love the fit and the feel of this item, no wonder why lately I find myself choosing this sweater over my other sweaters hanging in my closet.  So, if you’re in the New York City area, I highly suggest checking out Mulberry & Grand.

As for jeans, I have been completely blown away with Old Navy’s selection of denim. From skinny jeans, to flared, to boot leg, to jeggings, and so on, Old Navy is offering tons of denim in all different fits and colors.  Today, I decided on the classic, high rise, medium washed distressed skinny jeans and if I do say so myself, I believe this style is super flattering.

Lately, I been having a super tough time deciding on what necklaces I want to wear, so my solution is why choose one when you can wear two?  I’m loving the layered necklace trend and these two gold, geometric long necklaces from the Etsy shop LauraB Elements go with each other perfectly.  I love the two different shades of gold against my orange sweater.  With that being said, head over to Laura’s shop for the best selection of hand crafted jewelry, featuring beautiful metal finishes.

Continuing with jewelry, I’m also loving statement earrings. For this outfit, I turned in my usual, dainty studs for a pair of gold hoop earrings from H&M.

Then for shoes, I am just wearing my brown heeled booties from Payless.  I’m looking to expand my brown bootie collection, so any suggestions let me know, but for now these shoes do the trick.

Let’s hope fall stays in the air a little bit longer before the nasty winter weather hits. Keep the discussion going in the comments below by telling me what is your favorite season when it comes to weather and fashion. Talk to you all soon!

Jump (suit) Into The Week

All week I spend the days eagerly waiting for the weekend and when the weekend finally arrives, I blink and then it’s Monday again.  Anyone else feel the same way?  Well I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, I know I did by exploring Central Park and visiting new, trendy restaurants in the West Village and Soho with friends.

Ever since moving to the city, I feel like I have to be stylish 24/7 and even when I do “dress up” I’m always envious of everyone’s outfits in the city. Although, I don’t feel nearly as fashionable as everyone else in the city, whenever I am looking to amp up my fashion game, I’ve been wearing this stylish one piece featured in today’s style post on repeat.  Keep on scrolling to read all about my love for jumpsuits this summer.

So for those living under a fashion rock, a jumpsuit is pretty much a romper, but instead of shorts like a romper, a jumpsuit features pants, so basically it’s just a connecting, coordinating pant suit.  These matching one pieces are the best because you don’t have to worry about matching two pieces of clothing. I’m still in shock that my jumpsuit is from Target because it certainly looks like it’s made by a more high end brand, especially because it features a beautiful, bold floral pattern, an open back, a deep V neckline, and a fun tassel detail.  Also, as I continue to expand my jumpsuit collection, I always look for jumpsuits with a sort of cinch in waist to give it more shape and break up any bold pattern.

As I mentioned above, this jumpsuit has sort of a low neckline, so I wanted to wear a statement necklace, so my neck didn’t look so bare.  I decided on my mixed metal, spiked, short necklace from the brand Design Lab.  Since my jumpsuit is head to toe flowers, I wanted to add some edge to this look and that’s why I chose spikes.

Now that the weather is finally starting to feel like summer, I’ve abandoned long sleeve sweaters and shirts, and so now that my arms and wrists are exposed, I chose to wear a bunch of my favorite gold bangles from Forever 21 and of course my customized charm bracelet by Cosa™. Read more about my love for my Cosa™ cuff here.

For shoes, I like to wear a little heel with a jumpsuit for some extra height, so I settled on my black wedge sandals from Payless.

Lastly, to add a little extra dose of chicness to my look, I am wearing my London Fog circular sunglasses.

Well that’s all for today’s style post, folks! I hope everyone has a great start to their week. Talk to you all in my next post!

Come On Spring

Currently, wishing it was spring or at least warm outside, but as I write this sentence we just experienced snow this morning.  Something about the month of March I just despise.  Maybe it’s because I get my hopes up for warm weather and sadly get disappointed with cold temperatures and snow on the ground.  I wish after the holidays we can just fast forward to spring/summer, but sadly I am not Mother Nature and have zero control over the weather.  However, I do have control over my outfit, so today I am embracing spring like patterns and colors in the hope that Mother Nature will bless us with an early spring. 

No better way to start welcoming the new spring season than a floral blazer. I got mine at you guessed it, Zara. I love the color palette of the jacket. It features all my favorite colors, like blush, teal, gold, cream, and so on. Plus, the oversized fit makes it a perfect layering piece, because after all, the weather during the spring can be tricky.  

This white blouse from Marshalls has seen better days, but it’s my favorite shirt to layer under jackets and even fur vests, like seen here.  I am in desperate need of a new basic white/cream colored blouse, so suggestions are welcomed.  

As for jeans, I am just wearing my skinny jeans from Fox’s that feature this cool fringed bottom. Whenever I am looking for an extra way to add fun to my look I always choose these jeans because of the details.  

As much as I love boots, I am so sick of wearing them, so today I opted for my new Steve Madden flat loafers.  I love the bronze metallic color, plus the tassel detail.  Whenever I wear this type of flats, I feel like my level of chicness and sophistication goes up many notches.  

As for jewelry, I am wearing my gold pendant necklace from Anthropologie.  The suitcase charm suits me well because although I have only been overseas once (twice if you count Bermuda) I have a strong desire to travel.  Plus, recently I packed up all my belongings and moved to NYC, so the suitcase necklace just fits my life and looks great with any outfit.  

Well that’s a wrap on today’s style post.  Here’s to warmer weather, flowers blooming, and spring fashion.  Let me know in the comments below how you are getting your wardrobe ready for spring. Talk to you all soon!
