THE LOOK- “BOHEMIAN MODERN”……. my fall favorites #FW18

Now that fall is in full swing and the temperatures have dropped in NYC, it’s officially time to pile on the layers & start incorporating some of the new trends into your wardrobe……I really do love the fall season and all the rich colors that come with it. Wine, Bordeaux and Fuchsia have been some of my most favorite colors of the season and I love mixing and matching different shades for a tonal look.

 

Here are some of the fall favorites that I’m currently coveting….

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!

Zoe

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:

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:
