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:

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.

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….

Happy New Year!

FAUX FUR IN THE CITY

rock-paper-sequins_faux-fur-in-the-city_1It’s gotten super chilly here in New York City!

The winter weather is finally here just in time for the holidays, so it seems like the perfect time to bundle up in cute faux fur coats, sweaters & boots. I’m wearing one of my favorite fall pieces, which is this Zara faux fur jacket that I got last year. I love the copper color and also that it’s super cozy and easy to wear.  I’ve been wearing vintage faux fur coats for as long as I can remember, but now there are tons of new versions that you can find in the stores that fit perfectly and are so cute & affordable too.

I love to add pops of color to my winter wardrobe to play against neutral denim & dresses.  I think bright colors always improve my mood especially when it’s cold or a bit dreary outside.

I wore this Vintage cheetah print top with my H & M zipper jeans, Zara faux fur jacket & added my new favorite wine colored booties from Lulu’s. The handbag is from Betsey Johnson & sunglasses are Prada.

It’s a fun & cozy look to pair cute boots with denim and a great coat for stomping around the city. I’m also so happy to be back in New York City ! I hope you have a great holiday….

XO,

Zoe

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
