YOUR AFFORDABLE STYLE GUIDE FOR THE LAST DAYS OF SUMMER #endlesssummer #styleguide

Hi again! So…..this summer has been going so fast & I’ve been sooooo busy between working, parenting & our hectic city lifestyle in general that I’ve been a bit MIA on the blog lately.  But even though its almost the end of August, I’m still so excited about styling my summer looks & looking for great new sale items because it feels like summer’s just not over yet!

There’s still 2 more weeks till Labor Day weekend… so lets make the most of it! My family and I are finally getting some time to relax & escape the city and we are so excited to get in some more beach days & pool time & fun in the sun. Lately I’ve been searching for some cute styles that can take you through a long fun day at the beach or pool & then out to dinner and drinks….

This is a great time of year to look for the styles you may have been coveting all season that could currently be on sale or adding great new items you can wear now & also in the begging of the next summer season. I always am looking for a great bargain & love finding things to add to my wardrobe this time of year….because lets face it, fall is just not as fun!

This summer I’ve been really into dresses and bright colors. I like to mix and elegant look with something more edgy and have also been getting back into graphic t-shirts again. For summer I tend to wear more simple styles but also to have fun with my outfit choices. Fashion should always be fun and make you feel good about yourself!

Here are some of my favorite looks for this end of the summer season:

HAPPY LAST DAYS OF SUMMER!

How to Look Fab When It’s Freezing Cold-#WinterChic #Outfitinspo…. The Look #34

Ever since the New Year, it’s been absolutely freezing in NYC!!! With temperatures as low as 10 degrees and major snow on the ground , it doesn’t leave much inspiration for even leaving the house unless absolutely necessary, but still….the show (& life & work) must go on!

Currently as we are heading into the second week of the year, it’s “warming up” to the 30’s and 40’s which is much more manageable….but still….for someone who spent so many years in sunny California, it takes a bit of adjusting to get used to getting dressed on these super cold days.

Here is my un-official guide to looking stylish in the lower digits, all in styles from the splurge-worthy to the steal 🙂

THE COAT

I’ve never been a big fan of puffy coats and have always steered towards faux furs in fun, bright colors…..but when the temps really drop you’ll want to wrap yourself up in anything that resembles your warmest duvet comforter….here’s some chic alternatives in different price points:

 

1.Bordeaux down puffer/ SAM $575   2.Gold puffer/ Add Down   3. Pink cold night puffer/ Lovers & Friends $178    4.Red  X Revolve Belted Puffer Lovers & Friends $101  5.Lilac puffer bomber/ Lioness $100     6.Leopard Print Puffer/ ASOS $34 on sale!

 

THE SWEATER

You can never go wrong with a great sweater and this season there are so many cute ones to choose from….and many of them are also on sale….a win/ win!

 

1.Fuchsia boss woman top/ Lovers & Friends $168   2. Grey ruffle sweater/ English Factory $63 on sale!     3.Pink cold shoulder sweater/ Glamorous $60   4.Blue Tie Sleeve sweater / JOA $52    5.Lilac sweater/ ASOS $45 on sale!

 

THE BOOTS

I must admit that I have never purchased snow boots before, unless you count the ones I had when I was about 9 years old…..Anyway, it didn’t snow much last year and that was our first winter since moving to the east coast. But this year I do see the importance of having a great pair of boots to beat the elements plus you can still look chic doing it….there’s nothing like ruining your fave pair of boots and getting your feet wet in the slushy street corners of NYC! Not fun!

 

1.shearling trimmed booties/ Alexander McQueen $710 on sale!     2. tan wedge holiday booties/ Sorel $295    3. park city short wedge booties/ Sorel $300   4. tall snow boots/ Blondo $162 on sale!   5. ruffled boots/ J/Slides $67 on sale!     6. faux fur trim boots/ Madden Girl $52 on sale!  

 

 

Happy Winter!

All the Best Ruffles & Statement Sleeves for Spring/ Summer….The Look #24

Lately I’m loving pretty pastel colors, cotton shirting fabrics & delicate lace. There are so many gorgeous ruffled tops & fabulous statement sleeves in the stores right now…Embrace these pretty looks with edgy vibes in these Spring/ Summer favorites…The off the shoulder look is still going strong, but why not change it up a bit in a one shoulder style or an asymmetrical ruffled blouse? This is THE season of the dramatic blouse & it looks great with distressed denim: jeans, skirts or shorts. Pair this look with some amazing new flatform shoes & a dramatic or playful new handbag for an effortless & chic look.

Here’s one of my favorite new Instagram looks that’s feminine & chic & also affordable….
