Lavendar Hues in the City

Hey everyone,

Today, I’m sharing a super casual and basic look that I wore while spending the day in the Upper East Side. It was a eventful day, so I’ll just take you guys along with me.

Outfit Details:

Rayban Aviators

Lavendar Perforated Cami: Banana Republic Factory (similar here and here)

Ripped Jeans: Gap Factory (similar here)

Gold Jack Rogers Thong Sandals

Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac.

For lunch, we stopped by this quaint Thai place, called Thai Peppercorn.

Since I’ve never had Thai before, I ordered the typical Pad Thai, which is just sautéed rice noodle with bean sprout, ground peanut, small brown tofu, scallion and egg. I’d give it a 7/10 just because I was thrown off by some of the flavors.

Address: 1750 1st Avenue

Then, we took a quick walk at Carl Schurz Park, but it was carzy hot that day – around 90 degrees.

To end the day, we went to Emack and Bolio’s to beat the heat. The place was just too cute! It was decorated with colorful wallpaper, old rock ‘n’ roll poster, and gave off a cool “hippie” vibe. On top of that, the ice-cream was off the charts – super creamy and delicious (or maybe I was just in need of something cold to avoid heat stroke). From their assortment of flavors, I ordered peanut butter oreo, serious chocolate addiction, and the original oreo.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post and let me know if you want to see an NYC Guide Blog post!

Simple With A Bit of Sparkle (Collab with Mirina Collections)

Hey friends!

I’ve always loved the motto, “Keep it simple stupid.” Today, this quote applies to my simple t-shirt dress . However, I’m never one to dress like Plain Jane, so I added my Mirina Collections “Jess” Necklace. It’s such a statement that it speaks for itself. To finish it off, I added my Pewter Gladiator Sandals and a neutral cross-body bag.

Floral Fun

I’ve been loving summer so far. Not only has the weather been amazing, but I’m actually excited when choosing my outfit for the day. In the wintertime, I just throw on whatever I need to stay warm – usually a chunky sweater, jeans, scarf, leather boots. But now, I have so many more options!

To me, floral is the epitome of spring and summer fashion. You can honestly never go wrong. Today, I wore this lovely mint floral romper from Nordstrom. And you’ll never believe how much I paid for it: $12!

The Girl in the Yellow Dress

I’m so excited that summer has arrived! Now, I can store my grays and blacks away, and start wearing bright happy colors.

Recently, I purchased this amazing dress from J.Crew Factory at only $26! I wore it to my high school’s National Honor Society. Among the sea of black and white dresses, you could spot me from a mile away. Don’t be afraid to stand out! Summer is the perfect time to experiment with colors, textures, trends – whatever floats your boat.

Hi friends! Sorry I’ve been gone for so long. With AP exams, SATs, and finals all culminating in the last month of junior year, your girl has been packed with events. I’m also working on a really exciting project in the NYC Metropolitan area, so look out for updates!

Free and Flowy

Hey ladies (and gentlemen)!

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.

Preppy & City Chic Style

Hey guys!

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.

My Outfit:

Zara A-Line Dress

Gap Light Pink jacket (Old)

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote in Fairview Blue

Silver Glitter Oxfords (similar here and here)

RayBan Polarized Blue Mirrored Aviators 58mm

NuMe Hair Wand 25 mm

On My Radar for Spring 2016

To me, springtime brings to mind blooming flowers, ice cream trucks, and of course – cute fashion. This spring, the major trends I’ve been seeing have been off the shoulder, mirrored aviators, lace-up flats, espadrilles, chambray denim, gingham, ruffles, scallops, the list could go on. I’ve also been seeing the same colors pop up on Instagram: white, navy, blue, and blush pink.

To prepare my closet, I love to make Polyvore sets to give me inspiration. They only take two minutes to add your favorite items to a set. Polyvore is like Pinterest, but everything makes sense together on the board. Today, I’m going to share some of my favorite sets that represent my spring style. Enjoy!

Blushing Pink

Screen Shot 2016-04-24 at 3.45.47 PM.png

1. Chicnova Fashion Box Clutch // I can’t believe the intricate bag is only $23! It would look great with an LBD for a night time party.

2. Zara Top with Peter Pan Collar // I love shopping at Zara during the springtime because that store encapsulates my style: preppy and chic. This collared top would be so cute with white cropped pants and some cute sandals.

3. Rebecca Taylor Off Shoulder Gauze Dress // Anything off the shoulder reminds me of something to wear to a tropical vacation, in Bali or Santorini or something. Super loose and flowy, it’s also a great swimsuit coverup.

4. Red Valentino ‘Eyes’ flared dress // I am absolutely obsessed with Red Valentino’s whole collection. But this fit-an-flare cap sleeve dress is so cute!

5. Kate Spade New York Initial Clutch // How cute is this purse? It’s the perfect addition for any black-tie or formal event, instantly dressing up any look.

6. FRENDS Layla leather and rose gold-tone headphones // These headphones have been all the rage because they are perfect for a feminine woman who still loves to listen to music Compared to those bulky BEATS headphones, these are way more delicate and girly.

7. Chicwish Elate Pink Dress with Bow Decor // This dress reminds my of Kate Spade: the girly color and bow, but it’s a fraction of the price!

8. Tory Burch Caroline Ballet Flats // These are a classic staple shoe for any girly girl. While black flats are great, nude flats can lengthen the leg.

9. Steve Madden ‘Sunshine’ Lace-Up Flat // Lace-up flats have suddenly been really popular since the beginning of 2016. It’s definitely an interesting twist on the typical ballet flat. I especially love these ones because of the short gold heel. Just like my Ivanka Trump E Day Chelsea Boot (from the winter time), the gold heel just dresses up any look.

City Chic meets Preppy

Screen Shot 2016-04-24 at 4.18.06 PM.png

  1. AVIATOR FLASH LENSES POLARIZED BLUE FLASH // Just recently, I purchased a pair of these, and I’m in love. They’re super chic and mirrored lenses are extremely popular in NYC. An additional benefit is that mirrored lenses block out your eyes, so if you’re having a rough day (we’ve all been there), just slip these babies over your face and your good to go!
  2. White House Black Market Saint Honore Distressed // A huge trend has been distressed boyfriend jeans. However, these jeans offer a classic rise and distressed touches for a more fitted ‘girlfriend’ look.
  3. Thomas Mason For J.Crew Mandarin-Collar Tuxedo Shirt // Not your average white button down, the tuxedo style and mandarin collar are a nice twist on a classic white blouse.
  4. Chloé Drew small leather and suede cross-body bag // I love how girly and simple Chloe bags are – for everyday use AND fancier events. This mixed media bag  features both soft suede and a contrasting leather front flap. The gold-tone hardware and long chain strap finish off this cute purse.
  5. Tory Burch ‘Miller’ Flip Flop // I swear I mention these shoes in almost every blog post. But they’re are so timeless, I could pair them with any outfit. I’ve seen 15- year old girls and 60-year old women wear them; they’re another great staple piece that will never go out of style.

Espadrille Love

Screen Shot 2016-04-24 at 4.33.28 PM.png

  1. Aquazzura Aquazurra x Poppy Delevingne Midnight Flat Espadrilles // Love the sun and moon embellishments!
  2. Soludos Lace and canvas wedge espadrille sandals
  3. Suede Espadrilles
  4. Soludos Classic Canvas Stripe Espadrille Sandal
  5. Aquazzura Belgravia Denim Espadrille // If you’re looking for a high-end designer summer shoe, these are perfect. I love the denim material!
  6. Soludos Platform Gladiator Sandals // I love how Solids mixed both leather and the classic espadrille material.

RED Valentino Dresses

Screen Shot 2016-04-24 at 4.43.46 PM.png

  1. RED Valentino Peter Pan Collar Heart-Print Dress
  2. REDVALENTINO Embroidered cotton-poplin mini dress
  3. REDValentino Women’s Lace Scalloped Dress – Nude
  4. REDValentino Embroidered cotton-poplin top
  5. Smocked Bodice Lace Dress
  6. REDValentino Two-tone cady mini dress

RED (Romantic Eccentric Dress) is another line of  Valentino, mainly focusing on contemporary party dresses. Even though the prices make my wallet cry, I love window shopping these girly dresses.

Well, that’s it folks! Hope you enjoyed what I’ve been eyeing this spring and noticed a couple of trends.

How to Style a Statement Necklace

Hey lovelies!

As you may know, statement necklaces have always been in style to dress up a basic white tee. Whether it is a brightly beaded, layered pearl, or a blinged out necklace, they are sure to turn heads. And even though the holiday season is over, you can still dress up an everyday outfit with some bling around your neck.

I paired this stunning ‘Jess’ necklace with neutral colors to let the bling speak for itself. My silver oxfords additionally compliment the sparkly necklace. Finally, I topped the look off with some red lips.

Jess Necklace: Mirina Collections

Plaid Shirt: UNIQLO  (similar one here: http://www.uniqlo.com/us/product/women-flannel-check-long-sleeve-shirt-134298002.html)

Black Jeans: H&M

Oxfords: Delias

Matte Lipstick: Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick in Brilliant Bordeaux

While a Forever 21 necklace breaks and rusts easily, Mirina Girls’s handcrafted pieces will last a lifetime.
