Cape on a Windy Day











Cape from HongKong, Topshop blouse, Madewell skirt, Zara boots, Kate Spade bag, Zara scarft

Wore this romantic look on a super windy Sunday. The cape was the perfect cover-up and complemented the long skirt nicely. Perfect outfit for a day at the museum - these photos were taken at the driveway to the Museum of Natural History!

Mini-Skirt Winter Edition






Vintage blouse, Frap Bois cardigan (from Hong Kong), Dazzle skirt (from China), Initial boots, Vintage collar

It's snowing outside...but I'll wear a mini-skirt anyways! That's what went through my mind when I put this outfit together. Who says you can't rock a mini in the winter? Just pair it with your warmest tights, boots, and socks combo, and throw on a cardigan to complete the look.

Kate Spade Green










Vintage sweater, Season Window shirt, H&M skirt, Sam Edelman boots, Kate Spade purse, Kate spade bangle, Pearl bracelet from Nepal

Took my new pink Kate Spade purse out for a spin, and unintentionally paired it with a bright green sweater that is exactly the color of the iconic Kate Spade green. I guess I was unconsciously channeling my inner Kate Spade girl! I paired the sweater with a graphic print and mini-skirt for a retro-chic look.

All Denim






Vintage shirt, French Connection jeans, Urban Outfitters sweater, Pour La Victoire boots

Rocking a denim-on-denim look paired with a chunky cardigan. I almost never wear blue jeans, but I think this look makes me like jeans a lot more!

Cobblestones and Construction








Kate Spade Saturday sweater,  American Apparel blouse, Free People shorts, Opening Ceremony tights, Topshop boots, Kenneth Jay Lane necklace, Kate Spade bag

There's nothing more quintessential to New York streets than cobblestones and construction. I thought the rugged background fit nicely with my casual outfit - I love pairing short shorts with a chunky sweater, it's one of my go-to looks for winter. It's so easy to throw on, and it's even office appropriate (in advertising at least) since I'm wearing tights underneath. The only thing this outfit is lacking are knee high boots, I've been eyeing this Stuart Weitzman pair for a while, to buy or not to buy? If only there was a good reason to treat myself...

The Perfect Winter Skirt








Mo&Co top (from China), Dizzit skirt (from China), Cheap Monday boots, Kate Spade bag and bangle, Uniqlo tights, Madewell ring & Rings from Argentina

It's not often I find a piece of clothing that I think is absolutely perfect, but when I tried this skirt on, I fell head over heels for it! The voluminous shape, high-waist, and fun but classic pattern really makes this a stunning skirt, and great for winter as well with its heavy wool fabric. If I could, I would wear this skirt all the time, but it's also one of those pieces that is memorable and everyone will recognize when worn a second time. I paired the skirt with a crop top and gray tights, and my new Kate Spade bag for a prep-inspired trendy look.

Like a Doll







Banana Baby sweater (from China), H&M Skirt, Nike sneakers, Vintage necklace

Dressed up like a doll in a cropped sweater with the largest turtleneck, a puffy high-waisted skirt, and an all-purple color scheme. Can you guess what my favorite color is? ;)
