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

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….

THE LOOK: FUN. CASUAL. CHIC- “Faux Fur & Ruffles”

Vintage Sweatshirt & Denim in Brooklyn

rockpapersequins_def_leppard_look6696

I always seem to sway between romantic & rock n’ roll inspired looks, sometimes mixing the two depending on my mood. But There’s something about waking up in New York City that makes you want to dress up a little bit tougher and today I was feeling in that kinda mood. I stepped out in this vintage outfit for coffee and a casual day walking around Brooklyn….

I wore this vintage Def Leppard sweatshirt layered over a Splendid tee with my Zara splattered skinny jeans & Nasty Gal faux fur jacket & added black suede Sam Edelman boots, my hot pink suede Monserat de Luca fringe bag and Prada sunnies.

I can never seem to get enough of denim, boots & faux fur jackets this fall season and I like how these can be either dressed up or down depending on your mood or occasion.

I hope you had a great weekend!

Zoe

Dark Florals & Sunny Days

dark_florals_rockpapersequins_img_6647

Happy November!

This is that crazy time of year where every day the weather seems completely different and you never know what to wear until that morning when you see how the weather actually is on that day and not what your weather app was predicting the night before…

I had actually planned on wearing my cozy faux fur coats this past weekend but we had an unexpected heat wave which was actually so nice and reminded me of California days…
I’ve been loving Dark Floral Prints paired with denim, boots and leather this season….Also still cannot get enough of off the shoulder tops and flared sleeves for fall, so it was fun to wear this new top I found from Nasty Gal. It’s so pretty and I love how the print looks with jeans & gold accessories. It would also look great with a skirt and over the knee boots.

I wore this ruffly Nasty Gal top with my ripped J Brand jeans, black Dolce Vita boots, favorite Marisa Mason & Calleen Cordero jewelry that’s always on repeat & Prada sunglasses.

It was a beautiful & sunny day & I’m really trying to enjoy all of these last days of good weather before the cold sets in here in NYC….

Zoe

The Look #12: “Studs n’ Roses”

The romantic look continues for fall 2016, this time adding an edge with washed out & ripped denim, metallic rock studs, leather jackets & lace tops. The classic black Moto jacket & simple denim have been adorned with bold rose print embroidery & silver studs….

For a play on contrasts, combine a ruffled lace blouse with a studded jacket and ripped jeans, or a flowing rose print with a rock n roll jacket. Combining lace with studs takes a sweet feminine look over the edge and into the dark side….

A little bit retro, a little bit 80’s & a little bit rock star….the latest look is “Studs N’ Roses”

THE LOOK: SEXY. CASUAL. COOL

HERE’S SOME OUTFIT INSPIRATION FOR THE LOOK #12….”STUDS N’ ROSES”
