Change of Season

( Zara sweater, AA skirt, Alexander Wang bag, Massimo Dutti boots, H&M Paris hat)

It's finally chilly enough in NY to break out the cozy knits and start layering again. Fall is a beautiful time in the city. Walks through Central Park, the changing of colors, everything pumpkin flavored, and I finally get to break out my amazing coat collection! I will always long for the days of mini skirts and sheer tops.. and those are definitely over -but I couldn't let go just yet. I'll be sure to commit to a skirt til my legs freeze off. 

Enough said! While mixing pieces from different seasons, I stuck with simple black accessories and the biggest sweater I could find in my closet. This is a very basic look for me in comparison to my usual form of dressing, but there is something unexplainable about it that I just love. I'm currently packing for my next adventure to LA & SF. I leave in the morning and I can't wait to kiss the California sun again. Its only been 3 months - but thats far too long for me.

Chains & Things

 ( All Saints Lucille skirt, 3.1 Phillip Lim sunnies, Kelsi Dagger Chelsea bag, Bleu de Chanel parfum)

This is a quick compilation of some of my favorite fall items in my closet at the moment. 

1. This buttery leather skirt in the richest shade of ox-blood is a great item for layering. I cant get enough of leather in the fall, which goes on to my next piece..

2. This chain mail bag is perfect for going out or just running errands around the city and surprisingly spacious. 

3. I've been brightening my wardrobe with these new WHITE TORTOISE-SHELL shades..thank you Mr. Lim for always taking the accessory game to the next level - LOVE THESE

4. And last but not least a warm scent to keep me living through the cold months- you can always count on Chanel.

Off Duty Chic

 (Topshop pinafore, Alexander Wang crop, bag, & pumps, H&M Paris hat)

You know that amazing grey area in between seasons on the East coast? Where it's not quite hot like the summer, nor a chilly autumn breeze..I've taken full advantage of this easy transition into the upcoming weathery months. I scored this amazing jumpsuit at the Topshop flash sale this week in SoHo. Paired it with a barely there cropped turtleneck and all black accessories to keep it flowing. Here's to giving Kate Moss circa 90's London a run for her money with this look!

UV Ray

(3.1 Phillip Lim sunglasses, Alexander Wang camisole)

Walking down 5th Avenue the other day and found this sick lit up display at the Nike store. It just so happens it was the perfect backdrop to shoot my new favorite shades. Always a fan of PL, and the white tortoise shell is untouchable in terms of style.

Columbus Circle

( Marni x H&M coat, Zara cami + skirt + pumps, 3.1 Phillip Lim runway bag, Ray Ban sunglasses)

Keeping it simple in black and white + a pop of color with my favorite Phillip Lim piece in my closet.  

Perfect day to night outfit for the city!

Dead End

(Theory Daranda jumpsuit + Proenza Schouler clutch + Zara pumps + HofH sunglasses)

Sunday perusing in the Meatpacking District always gets me in trouble. After a lovely lunch at the new Gansevoort Hotel spot, The Chester - I popped into Theory to check out the latest collection. Although all the coats were beautiful and fall is on the rise...it was a warm day in the city! So my eyes immediately shifted left for the rows of silk numbers. The jumpsuit was a no brainer with effortless chic being my ideal style these days. The geometric print is a great mix with my graffiti clutch and white patent pumps. I think NY is finally influencing my daily dressing.

I definitely don't hate it!

Parisian Blues

( Wearing: H&M Paris collection maxi dress & hat + H&M undergarments + Jeffrey Campbell boots + vintage jewelry)

Happy October!

Last month was so crazy between settling back on the East coast and doing tons of SS14 coverage at the NY shows. Although, I didn't really post much of it - most of my day to day fashion forward activity is always on my IG, which you can follow here! The colder days are slowly but surely peaking in the city and i've started to re-assess my wardrobe from summer to fall. But before this is permanent, I finally wore out some of my picks from the H&M Paris Collection I scored during fashion week. Every item embodied this magical vibe that you could only find in the City of Lights. This look seemed all too beautiful to be schlepping around the streets of SoHo on a Monday afternoon, when i'd rather be sipping a glass of Merlot at a street cafe on the Champs Elysees. Until then, a gal can only dream. But thats half the fun of reality anyways, yeah? Having my head up in the clouds all day. 

*I'm trying to be better about keeping up with the blog, life has just been too beautiful to be on a computer all day. 

Seizing every moment, don't forget to smile!
