The Look #20- Spring Brights & Ruffles….”Lady in Red”

 RUFFLES & BRIGHTS are really trending this season in tops, skirts & dresses…….

I’ve been loving all things ruffled lately and also adding some pops of bright color to my wardrobe…..I wore this bright red top out to brunch in Brooklyn this weekend & I’m loving how bold color can really brighten your mood on a bleary day.  There are so many great RED tops & dresses right now that can take you from a work day to night out to weekend look.

See below for some OF MY FAVORITE RED ITEMS, distressed denim & handbags I styled for the NEW SPRING SEASON inspired by my most recent #OOTD from INSTAGRAM…..

…because RED is always a good idea…

HOPE YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY!

The Look #19-“Ruffled & Ripped” White Tops & Dresses with Denim & Bright Handbags…. #Outfitinspo for Spring ’17

It’s been so warm and sunny the past few days in NYC!

4de87daf09e2b502b3ecbb7b597f0306

I’m getting so excited for the NEW SPRING SEASON & thinking about all the fun tops and pretty dresses to wear when the weather stays warm for good. I know everyone has their “go-to” looks and special timeless favorites that they come back to time & time again….For me it’s always been the pretty white tops & dresses paired with denim that really sets the mood for me for early spring. My closet seems to be filled with cotton, chiffon & lacy little white dresses and tops that I never seem to tire of & I always LOVE to pull them out again at the first signs of spring. I think this is such a classic and feminine look that always looks fantastic & perfectly accessorized with gold jewelry and edgy leather accessories mixed with pops of color.

The off the shoulder trend is still going strong this season….as well as bell sleeves, ruffles and one shoulder style tops and dresses. Pair your ruffled tops with ripped denim & cool leather with soft lace….

Here is a recent #OOTD I wore for a lunch date that I posted on INSTAGRAM.

Casual Chic- Black, White & Blue in Brooklyn

THE NEW T-SHIRT, JEANS & LACE TREND

black_wht-1

Sometimes it’s just fun to keep it simple & throw on a WHITE T-SHIRT & JEANS. This is one of my favorite and most comfortable outfits to wear that you can go back to time & time again. But of course you don’t want to wear just any old T-shirt or any old jeans, it’s got to be something that flatters & makes you feel good! I’m loving the “LACY CAMISOLE over a T-shirt” look, but sometimes it can get a bit tricky to pull off. This top is so simple and cute & I love the way the little CROPPED CAMI is built in for a seamless look. Also loving long NECKLACES & these simple medium wash JEANS that are so affordable.

I wore this ZARA top & jeans with METALLIC GOLD accessories, a FAUX FUR MOTO JACKET & suede BOOTS for a lunch date in Brooklyn. This is a fun & casual daytime look….just add some rocker-style accessories for an edgier look or dress it up with heels and a blazer for a more ladylike & sophisticated vibe.

What do you think about the LACE CAMI over a T-SHIRT look? Let me know in the comments below……

Hope you have a beautiful day!

XO,

Zoe

In case you’re following me on INSTAGRAM – then you know how crazy I am about faux fur COATS. Also super into the color PINK lately….. Walking around NYC in the winter definitely calls for bundling up in cozy layers before you hit the streets for some new adventures. Here I am wearing my current NYC uniform of ripped jeans, suede booties, new fringe trim handbag & a faux fur coat layered over a ruffled sweater.

 HOW TO START WEARING THE NEW SPRING TRENDS IN WINTER…


Lately, I’ve been dreaming about the upcoming spring summer season & finding ways to start adding in the new style trends into my current winter look. I’ve been loving all things PINK and RUFFLED with METALLIC accessories, pastel hued FAUX FUR & bold EMBROIDERIES. It’s also fun to play with different fabric textures & SATIN is definitely set to replace fall’s VELVET looks this spring.

You can wear SATIN & RUFFLES for day & mix with RIPPED DENIM & boots, or dress it up for night time with heels and bold accessories. Speaking about accessories…it’s a fun way to get a jump on the spring summer trends  a little bit early.

I wore this ZARA faux fur coat with a TOPSHOP satin ruffle top (on sale!), my favorite J BRAND ripped jeans & new TOPSHOP metallic booties (on sale!) &  embroidered handbag. This is such a fun & affordable look!

Stepping into January with optimism & thinking about bright & happy days……the best is yet to come…… Happy 2017

Zoe

Happy New Year! The Best #Outfitposts of 2016

Happy New Year Babes! I hope you are all excited about 2017…..I know I’m excited for this new beginning and the chance to start over again….I don’t know if I really believe in New Year’s resolutions though….I feel like the beginning of the year is just a good time to asses everything you’ve accomplished and to plan ahead for the goals you want to achieve going forward.

One thing I’ve learned is that setting goals is fun, but actually working towards your goals takes determination & commitment. You really have to decide what you want to do & then just go ahead and really do it. Do the work. Take the daily steps that you need to do to move towards your goal. And believe in yourself! Because at the end of the day it really is about the daily journey and not the end result. It’s really all about the person that you become while you are on that journey….

“Life is the moment we’re living right now” The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Here are some of my favorite 2016 Outfit Post Images from the Blog & Instagram:

It’s been so fun to work on the blog & I’m excited to share more content in 2017 & to continue to evolve with more trend & style inspiration, curated looks & outfit posts for Rock Paper Sequins.

Happy New Year!

Winter White, Lace & Ripped Denim

rock-paper-sequinsimg_6967

What are your favorite go-to looks?

Lately, I’ve been wearing different faux-fur jackets with ripped denim skinny jeans, a feminine blouse (hopefully with lots of ruffles) & booties. It’s becoming a sort of winter uniform for my casual days here in NYC. But now that winter is here it can be a challenge not to wear too much black clothing all the time. It’s fun to mix things up in the colder months with some pops of color or something unexpected like a white coat.

I wore this vintage Juicy Couture faux fur jacket with a Style Mafia lace trim off the shoulder top, J Brand ripped denim  & black suede booties & the handbag is from Betsey Johnson.

Stepping into December & twinning with my sweet doggie Louise! Have been getting excited about the holidays, some new projects I’ve been working on and all that’s to come in 2017.

XO,

Zoe
