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:

The Look #13- Retro Glam

The holiday season is upon us….and it’s time to start thinking about all those fun events and parties & what you’ll be wearing this season….I’ve been loving all the 80’s inspired styles that are in the stores right now as well as some of the “New Wave” inspired collections that are coming soon for Resort 2017. These fun, over the top and truly optimistic styles provide just the escape we need right now. Pile on the glitsy glam and bring out the bling….then go out and have some fun!

I’m loving this dressed up Glam look that’s mixed with edgy embellished leather, ripped denim, metallic rock studs, sleek metallics and cool animal prints. For a play on contrasts, combine a ruffled blouse with a studded jacket and leather jeans, or a sexy metallic dress with a velvet jacket. Combine different fabrics, textures & prints for a retro-modern look. These looks are party perfect for all of your end of the year events. Get the latest….. “Retro Glam”

THE LOOK: SEXY. RETRO. COOL

CHEETAH DRESS & FAUX FUR JACKET IN BROOKLYN

img_6558new

Fall is here! It’s been such a long time since I’ve been on the East Coast during the fall season & I’m so excited about all the pretty leaves changing color & the cooler temperatures here in NYC. I’ve also really been loving the latest new wave/ rock n’ roll/ 80’s MTV inspired collections from Marc Jacobs & Isabel Marant, so when I  found this dress on one of my recent vintage shopping adventures I was really excited because it reminded me of these emerging trends. I’ve always been a leopard & cheetah print kinda girl, but I really liked how this dress has bright pops of color in blue and purple to contrast with black.

Even though it’s fall I still like a bit of color to brighten things up. I like to style my unique vintage and thrift shop finds with whatever I’m currently wearing that’s new or on repeat.

I wore this vintage dress with my favorite faux fur jacket. I found this cozy jacket last year from Nasty Gal, but you can find similar ones here & here. I added my new black Sam Edelman suede boots, favorite pink suede Monserat de Luca fringe bag, Prada sunglasses, Topshop velvet choker & Calleen Cordero leather bracelets.

I always love wearing simple boots with dresses and also like the feeling of throwing on a furry & cozy jacket to give the outfit a bit of texture and edge. This is a fun & playful look that will take you from day into night….

Zoe
