Hey everyone,

Today’s outfit features my favorite patchwork halter top as well as these leather shorts. I paired the two together because the prints/textures complement each other. Then, I just added my favorite gold accents.

Sheryl’s Summer Wish List

Hi everyone,

As you all know, summer is by far my favorite season. No school, great weather, time with friends, beach days, movie nights, and of course – fabulous fashion trends. Although I love shopping at various places online and in store, I’ve always wanted to easily get all the brands I love off one website. This is why I love websites like www.ShopSpring.com. Inspired by the beautiful boutiques lining New York City’s Spring Street in SoHo, the brand emulates the experience of having all these shops available in one place.

My favorite part of the site is the accessories store which includes over 850 brands, some of my favorites being: Benefit CosmeticsKate Spade, Jack Rogers, Rebecca Minkoff, Free People, Steve Madden, and Urban Outfitters.  There are even high end brands like Alexander McQueen, GivenchySalvatore Ferragamo, Kenneth Cole, Rebecca Taylor, Ted Baker, and Rachel Zoe.

Since the site has so many different brands to choose from, different people can shop there and guarantee that they will find something to suit their styles. 

Today, I’ll be staring a few of my top picks that are on my radar for this season. All of the items I mention are from the brands on the site. Be sure to check them out with the links listed:

  1. Kimchi Blue Gina Jo Sweetheart RomperScreen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11.18.06 AM.png

I was so excited to see Urban Outfitters on this site, and even more excited to see that this flouncy number was on SALE! I love this lightweight, sleeveless sweetheart neck romper with flouncy flared shorts. It looks super vintage with buttons + pin tucking, but also very chic and girly.

2. Luna Round Cat Eye Sunglasses

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11.30.03 AMScreen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11.29.57 AM

These totally remind me of the QUAY sunglasses, but at a fraction of the price! I love the gold color, as opposed to silver, because it compliments my tanner complexion, so these are perfect for me. These sunnies add such a cool, chic vibe to any outfit.

3. Steve Madden Stecy Heel – Black

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11.39.24 AM.png

I’ve always wanted a pair of sleek and simple black heeled sandals that were the perfect height. I was contemplating buying them for full price on Nordstrom’s website, but I saw these for 25% off on http://www.ShopSpring.com!

4. Benefit Cosmetics they’re real! lengthening mascara

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11.41.13 AM.png

I’ve heard so many great reviews of this mascara that I need to try it for myself. It has the ability to lengthen, volumize, curl, and separate all in this small bottle.

5. Rebecca Taylor Pickstitch Jacket

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11.47.29 AM.png

I’m a huge fan of any jacket that can spice up a simple look, especially Moto jackets. You guys know that I love my GAP Pink Moto Jacket, but this Rebecca Taylor piece is higher-end and better-quality. I love the quilted texture, asymmetric zip front, and exposed metal zip pockets.

6. Rebecca Minkoff MOTO BUCKET – BLACK

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11.50.45 AM.png

Another huge trend for sumer has been leather bucket bags. I’m not sure why (since it’s not the most convenient – structurewise), but one can’t deny that they are super unique and interesting. These bags are a happy medium between a small purse and large tote bag. Known for buckles and details, Rebecca Minkoff’s bucket bag is both elevated and edgy that you can sling over your shoulder for summer. 

7. Ted Baker NATLEAH Scallop detail ribbed dress – Mint

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11.56.00 AM.png

Guys, I think I’ve actually fallen in love with this dress. If you know my style at all, you know that I’m a huge girly-girl. This pastel mint color is bold enough to make a statement but also muted at the same time. I think this dress is perfect for brunch in the city, Easter, or a birthday party.

8. Free People Denim Lace-Up Mini Skirt

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 11.59.09 AM.png

Free People is typically known for it’s bohomien, free spirit style. Though I don’t shop there often, I’m in love with this denim mini skirt. Denim skirts are definitely coming back from the ’90s. And this particular skirt is unique for the lace up and pleated details.

9. Urban Outfitters Kimchi Blue Pleated Maxi Skirt

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 12.03.19 PM.png

I don’t normally wear maxi skirts because of my petite frame (5’3″ and proud!). But I can’t help but fall in love with this pastel pink color, the side slit, and the pleated details. If I style it, I would wear the exact outfit as the model: a simple white tank top, brown sandals, and gold jewelry. Effortless and chic!

10. Soludos Suede Lace-Up Tassel Platform Espadrille Sandals

Lastly, I have been on the hunt fot the perfect brown espadrilles. Another major trend for summer 2016, these shoes are comfortable like Vans but stylish like flats. Started in the Mediterranean, Soludos is one of the most common brands for these shoes.

I hope you guys got some fashion inspiration for Summer 2016. Be sure to check out http://www.ShopSpring.com for more of what’s on trend and how you can stay on trend for the best prices!

Hope you enjoyed!

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!

NYC: From Morningside Heights (116 St) to Herald Square (34 St)

Hey lovelies!

Today’s blog post is in the form of a “Follow me around for a day”. Now, despite living in NYC, I don’t usually find the time to explore its hidden gems. I’m the worst at reading directions. I can’t hail a cab. I never know what events are going on. But this summer, I’ve decided to hone in on these skills, starting at the very top of Manhattan.

First, I explored the lovely academic neighborhood, Morningside Heights (Upper West Side), which is home to the infamous Columbia University and its lesser known women’s college, Barnard College. Since summer just started, all the matriculates were flooding out and the tourists were flooding in. There was a dynamic flow of equilibrium in this picturesque retreat. Here’s a pic from a tour that had just finished:

IMG_8559

IMG_8550 IMG_8618 IMG_8635

Outfit of the Day:

– Halter Top: Forever 21

– Lace Shorts: Forever 21

– Cross body Bag: Michael Kors

– Gold Channing Watch: Michael Kors

– 2 Gold Bangles: TJ Maxx

– Gold Necklace: F21

– Platinum Sandals: Steve Madden

– Aviator Sunglasses: Cole Haan

Barnard College is only across the street, but unfortunately it doesn’t receive the same love as Columbia does. They call themselves, “a liberal arts research school”, which combines the closely-knit community of a liberal arts college with the large STEM/research institution of a university. Our lovely tour guide really provided insight into its thriving community — both socially and academically.

IMG_8568 IMG_8569 IMG_8570 IMG_8571 IMG_8572 IMG_8573  IMG_8582 IMG_8585 IMG_8607 IMG_8608 IMG_8614 IMG_8616 IMG_8617 IMG_8619 IMG_8620 IMG_8621 IMG_8623 IMG_8625

Can you believe this gorgeous campus can fit within the confines of Manhattan!?

Next, I took the MTA bus M04 all the way down to Midtown. Since the roads were blocked with traffic, it was about an hour ride. But I love looking out the window and soaking in the beauty of this cultural magnet. Fifth avenue is just breathless; I love the contrast between designer stores like Hermes, Tiffany and Co, and Valentino with less expensive brands like American Eagle and H&M. I think this is what makes NYC so magical —  a mix of people from all different backgrounds.

IMG_8627 IMG_8629

I had the bus all to myself, after the bus driver kicked everyone but me, out.

IMG_8631 IMG_8636 IMG_8658 IMG_8659 IMG_8660 IMG_8661 IMG_8662 IMG_8663 IMG_8664  IMG_8666 IMG_8667 IMG_8668 IMG_8669  IMG_8671 IMG_8672 IMG_8673  IMG_8675 IMG_8676

Finally, I made it to Macy’s at Herald Square, where I did a bit of shopping. I have to admit, walking inside made me squeal with excitement.

IMG_8677 IMG_8678 IMG_8679 IMG_8680 IMG_8681 IMG_8682 IMG_8683 IMG_8684 IMG_8688 IMG_8689 IMG_8691 IMG_8692 IMG_8693 IMG_8694 IMG_8700 IMG_8701 IMG_8702 IMG_8703 IMG_8705 IMG_8708 IMG_8711 IMG_8712

Of course, there’s always interesting stuff going on in the city. This summer 2015, a culinary pop up market, Broadway Bites, opened up between 33rd Street and Broadway. They have partnered  up with Urban Space and H&M to bring outdoor small businesses to the heart of Midtown. Food and people in the city — what better way to spend the evening?

Before I went back home, I browsed around Manhattan Mall.

Gap: A Place to Score Classic Styles at Affordable Prices

Hey everyone!

If you’re into the preppy/classic style, be sure to check out Gap.com. Lately, along with Old Navy, they’ve really stepped up their game, earning a title that’s equivalent to name brands like JCrew and Madewell. Even their website has been updated for a chic and sophisticated feel.

Gap Blog Post- June 19,15

Here are some of my recent purchases from them (These are collective):

IMG_7703 IMG_7694

I love the detail in this white, embroidered top ($27)

IMG_7622 IMG_6394  IMG_6398 IMG_6401 IMG_6410 IMG_6414 IMG_6415 IMG_6465IMG_5827IMG_5826IMG_5825IMG_5824

As you can see, most of their clothing features a fresh range of light colors, which is great for summertime. Gap also really likes to use lace, stripes, and classic styles. Pairing a simple pair of jeans and a blouse from gap calls for an effortless outfit, no matter what season.

*My light wash, ripped jeans are also from Gap. I scored them for only $12!
