After two weeks jam-packed with AP exams, finals, and various other stress-inducing tasks, I’m so glad to be back in the blogosphere! Here was my look to celebrate and close off a hectic past few weeks.
A super popular trend for spring and summer this year has been off-the-shoulder tops. Personally, I’m a huge fan of them because you can bare a little skin, without being too risqué. Even though they remind me of a Coachella desert music festival, off the shoulder tops are totally wearable anywhere – even a city like NY.
Today, I styled this amazing Zara Blouse with light wash jeans from Gap Factory, and some tan heeled boots by Chinese Laundry. Wearing this to school, my outfit was pretty casual, just a simple white style.
Today, I’ll be showing you a cute outfit that really shows my style. I would describe my style as being preppy with a “chic city twist”. Normally, preppy brings to mind Lilly Pulitzer, Kate Spade, Kendra Scott, and Southern brands (like Vineyard Vines, Marley Lilly, Simply Southern Tees, Southern Proper, Jadelynn Brooke).
While I do love these colorful brands, living in NYC has definitely toned-down my color choices. I love a good olive pant or white chiffon blouse. I guess you could say that my “city chic” comes from shopping at shops like Zara, J.Crew, Banana Republic, Anthropologie, Intermix, Gap, etc. Most of these stores are located right next to each other in SoHo or Fifth Ave anyways.
