The Look #25- Weekend Getaway: “Boho Beach”

Summer is in full force & so far I have been enjoying every free moment….It’s so nice when Friday finally arrives and you’ve got the weekend to look forward to. It seems like everyone works so hard year round but summer is the best time to take some extra moments, days or even weeks (!) to really unplug and unwind….

For the times when a full vacation is not possible, the weekend getaway can be just as good! Which leaves us with the ultimate question, what should You bring & what should You wear?

For weekends, I’m currently loving a “boho beach vibe” with little embroidered tops, denim skirts or shorts, metallic sandals, & a great off the shoulder or ruffled cold shoulder dress that will take you from a day at the beach to dinner out on the town.

Here are some of my favorite pieces for that poolside or beach town getaway….

1) day to night dress

2) embroidered top

3) denim shorts

4) lace off the shoulder top

5) denim skirt

6) metallic sandals

7) boho beach tote

The Look #23- The Best Little White Dresses To Wear This Spring-Summer #Oufitinspo #SS17

Hope you had a great holiday weekend! I’m so happy that spring has finally arrived here in NYC & enjoying the warm weather….One of my all time favorite things to wear in the summer is a little white dress & this season will be no exception. A simple white dress screams Spring/ Summer & can be worn season after season as it actually never seems to go out of style….

For those who like improvising, add a cool studded belt, a fringed bohemian style bag or leather booties to wear it in a cool way. Simple, sexy & confident is the way to go!

Here is the outfit I wore for Easter brunch with the family…..this is one of my go-to favorites & I just love the lace fabric & off the shoulder details. I also like how it can be dressed up or down or even worn over a pair of jeans for your weekend adventures….

Get inspired by Spring’s Fab Floral Prints….The Inspiration: “Flower Girl”

flower-girl

Currently craving…. Bright Colors & Bold Floral Prints for Spring/ Summer ’17.

For the Spring/ Summer season, there were some great designer collections with retro-inspired & playful flower print dresses, tops & jackets that totally remind me of 60’s & 70’s “Flower Power” dresses. I’ve always loved hunting through vintage shops for those one of a kind dresses in prints so similar to those that went down the runways of Michael Kors, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga & Chloe this season.

I can’t wait for spring to get here & to start embracing some bright colors, retro accessories & fun prints again!

Here are some of my favorite “Flower Girl” inspired items for SS17:

Pink in the City

PINK FAUX FUR IN THE CITY

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.

The Look # 15-Faux Fur & Ruffles- Winter Chic

Winter is here! And it’s so cold out! I’m spending my first winter in ages in NYC and it’s a bit of a shock to the system after so many years in sunny California. But still, it can be fun to bundle up when the temperatures drop. The super cold weather is no an excuse to stop looking cute, but still it can be a bit of a challenge at times.

This winter season I’m loving cozy faux fur jackets and the cutest sweaters with ruffles and lace-up details paired with denim and fun booties. There’s so much cute stuff out there in the stores right now…. Also, why not add some unexpected dashes of color to your winter outfits? Too much black & grey will leave you feeling drab, so throw in some shots of bold color with your neutrals to instantly lift up your mood. Then pile on chic layers and top off with your scarf, hat, gloves & a cool statement bag & you’re good to go…..

Here’s some inspiration to create your own winter casual look that will keep you feeling chic & warm….

Throwback Style Inspiration……….. The Icon: Jimi Hendrix- “Wild Thing”

One of my favorite style icons from the late 60’s is the ultimate rock star Jimi Hendrix. A true free spirit, he crafted & styled his own unique look filled with billowy shirts, eclectic prints & velvet pants. His outfits exploded with colors & patterns that expressed timeless style and gave us a window into his true essence. His look was part psychedelic, part luxury & part thrift shop style & adding with his electric guitar…he was the ultimate rock star. His music, stage performances and costumes were truly….an Experience.

I love how he mixed rich jewel tone colors like purple with pink & turquoise, copper with brown & gold as well as cool fabric combinations of velvet with silk & satin with brocade. His outfits were stunning, original & unique….

Retro Modern. Bohemian. Luxurious
