OIC x 2

Where: Wicker Park, Chicago
Wearing: OBEY sweater, Theory slipdress, Stuart Weitzman Hijack boots, Michael Kors Selma clutch, Brixton newsboy cap

Finally getting to post a few looks from my recent trip to Chicago after Coachella. First and foremost, I love that city. It's a cleaner, safer, kinder NY. From the food, to the shopping, to the sights. It's definitely a place I could call home if it wasn't for those sub zero winters. Anyways, I was feeling a city vibe type of way and went very Taxi Driver-esque for a day out with friends. These boots are a must-have in anyone's closet! They are so easy to incorporate into your daily wardrobe. Dressing them up or down is awesome. I love a balance of both. I love the color combo, the boots bring out the subtle floral prints in the sweater and it was such a coincidence how perfectly they meshed..Didn't noticed till I was rushing out the door and hated my first option. I love when those little touches of magic happen. 

Match made in heaven!

Cherry Blossom

Location: Prospect Park Botanical Garden, Brooklyn
Wearing: Zara coat/sandals, FRAME denim, Celine sunglasses, Alexander Wang bag

Really digging blush tones this season. Picked up this lovely dusty rose linen pea coat at Zara
a few months back during a sale and it hasn't really lived up to it's glory till now. Paired with a perfect pair of flares and a subtle spring sandal. My absolute favorite combination for a day of leisure in the city. PS: Expect a lot of photos with flower in upcoming posts! I can't contain myself when the city comes alive again! <3 p="">

Losing the Layers

Location: Meatpacking District, NY
Wearing: Alexander Wang bra/Marion bag, Topshop suit set, Theory Ashling trench, Zara pumps, H&M jewelry, NARS face/lips

It's finally that time of year...the sun is shining, the trees are in bloom, and the city has finally come alive again. We're shedding our layers and pulling out our latest Spring staples. And just when I thought i'd had enough of my coats and drab, I salvaged the last possible day over the week for a transitional look. Many think you have to separate your clothes by season, but there are many items you can play with any time of the year to make your wardrobe long lasting & multifunctional. (I smell a closet cleanse in the making!)

Start by dividing the obvious wardrobe differences, then make a middle pile of in-betweens. Follow by separating the middle pile into halves of S/S dominant items to F/W. Then reorganize nicely into your closet where you can put your own spin of cleansing rather it be by color or order! Sounds tedious, but it does wonders for your space!

On to my look, I love this snake-embossed suit set from Topshop! It goes with everything and I can't wait to play with it this season! Paired like the NY'er that I am with all my black accessories & silver jewelry..Top it off with a bold red lip and we're ready to take on the world!

Body Con

Location: Clinton Hill, Brooklyn
Wearing: Zara sweater/skirt, Michael Kors pumps/clutch, Topshop jewelry

Nothing does your wardrobe better then to have a few form fitting looks in your closet to give those killer curves and over-all shape. From cropped suits to shape shifting dresses all over the women's runways for 2015, the redefined shape is the official go-to for spring. After years of over accessorizing, I'm finally starting to appreciate the "less is more" approach. I shot this a few weeks back right on the verge of the changing seasons. I love how easily striking this look is. It can be taken from a day at the office, to an evening soiree with a jacket to throw over. 

Simple, but chic!

Get Into The Groove

Location: Central Park, New York
Wearing: Brixton hat, UO coat, Michael Kors turtleneck/heels, J Brand denim, Alexander Wang bag

After almost a year hiatus with Crimes of Fashion to focus on my personal life and transition, guess who is back in the game! I'm fresh minded and ready to take on a new year full of amazing opportunities. It's been a barely there February full of snow in the big city. As I prep for NYFW Fall 2015 collections starting tomorrow, I wanted to post a fun, cozy #OOTD from this past weekend. I've been vibing the Penny Lane 70's inspired trends i'm seeing everywhere for the upcoming season. I REALLY dig it. 

There will definitely be lots of content to come on a regular basis starting NOW, so stay tuned for everything fashion, food, beauty & travel!
