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….

Trending For Spring 2017: “Blue Jean Babe”…Get The Denim On Denim Look

Calling all denim lovers! You can never have too much denim in your closet & this season is the time to embrace it all with the denim on denim trend. This look is back again  but this time in a more sophisticated way…..you won’t be on denim overload if you pair a lighter wash with a darker one or blue denim with black.

Because this denim jacket has such a light wash (similar here & here), I paired it with dark wash jeans (here) and combined it with a feminine eyelet top (similar here & here) for a casual yet effortless look. I always love ruffled, frilled and feminine tops, but sometimes I like to pair them with simple, darker wash jeans for a clean & sophisticated look.

Currently craving…. Denim on Denim looks for Spring/ Summer ’17.

SHOP THE LOOK:

 

For the Spring/ Summer season, there are tons of great new things in denim…..I’m loving the lighter washes, patchwork details & bleached out jeans. Mix and match embellished with distressed & embroidered denim with classic pieces…..It’s all about the mix & there are no rules to creating your own personal style!

Here are some of my favorite “Denim on Denim” inspired items & street style photos for SS17:

Take your denim looks to the next level by adding statement sleeved tops, lace-ups, patchwork or embroidery …….More inspiration pictures below!

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….

NYC Style: The Transitional Pieces You Need This Spring #Outfitinspo

With the warm weather approaching at last, it’s finally time to start wearing those new spring looks….But you’ll still need that transitional jacket & shoes to get you into the season. The beginning of spring is so exciting but also a little tricky to dress for when you’re on the go. Mornings can start off chilly, afternoons are hot & evenings can be somewhere in the middle here in NYC….

FLOWER DRESS 4

Pretty floral tops & bohemian style blouses are great for this time of year and can also be dressed down on weekends or transformed into a cute festival look if you’re headed to see any of the concerts this year….

FLOWER DRESS2FLOWER DRESS1

My key pieces for this time of year are:

transitional jacket– you’ll need a great jacket or 2 that goes with anything that you can wear in the morning & then take off again in the afternoon. The Moto jacket is a classic choice that you can find in plaid black, with embellishments or in fun colors.

MOTO JACKET 1. Levi’s  / 2. Blank NYC  / 3. Sunset & Spring  4. Rebecca Minkoff

 

a pretty blouse or mini dress– a great new spring dress or blouse is perfect for layering over jeans, leggings or pants for now & this look will take you from a day at the office to happy hour or can also be a great weekend brunch look too.

jeans– you can never go wrong with jeans that are comfortable & flattering & can be dressed up or down for any occasion
