Sporty Mesh Skirt










Cos mesh skirt, Alexander Wang for H&M crop top, & Other Stories shoes, Kate Spade bangle, Vintage rings

I love this mesh skirt I found at Cos - I'm obsessed with the high-waisted cut and pretty color. It's not something that I would usually wear, but when I saw this on the hanger I knew I had to try it on. It's perfect with a crop top and flatform shoes for a sporty vibe!

Summer Kimono










Free People kimono, Zara tank, Free People shorts, Madewell sandals, Vintage bag

Casual Sunday spent strolling along a nice block in Harlem looking at apartments. I scored this Free People Kimono on Gilt and I've been wearing it around on the weekends. It's the perfect piece for just throwing on over an outfit when you want to add a bit of coverage or a splash of prints. I paired it with a simple white tank and distressed shorts for a boho chic look.

Cool Girl Vibes











Kaehana top (from Singapore), Nice Claup shorts (from Hong Kong), Nike sneakers, Deux Lux bag  

Wearing this outfit made me feel like a "cool" girl. You know, one of those girls who hangs out with the guys but is still effortlessly feminine, and is always chill and down for anything. I would say most days I'm definitely not one of those girls, but occasionally I channel my inner "cool" girl, usually with some leather and high top sneakers! So here I paired a neoprene crop top (already inherently cool, who doesn't love neoprene?!) with leather shorts and my one and only pair of sneakers. This outfit was comfortable and great for an active day of exploring, and could even have withstood shooting hoops with the boys..maybe next time!

Fringe Top and Maxi Dress









Zara top, Indigo dress (from Hong Kong), Jeffrey Campbell boots, Vintage rings, Bag from Japan

With Coachella having just ended, festival style has been on my mind. So when I saw this fringe top at Zara, I couldn't resist picking it up. It goes perfectly over a maxi dress or with short shorts for those hot summer days. For this outfit, I went boho chic by pairing it with a chevron maxi dress and fringe booties. For those Kate Spade lovers out there, you might recognize the background behind me as imagery from the brand's Spring lookbook. It appears Kate Spade is opening a store near me, I have a feeling the store will be feeding my shopping addiction soon!

Dirty French









LVER jacket (from Singapore), Nastygal blouse, Ah La Nuit skirt (from Singapore), Jil Sander Navy boots, No brand bag (from China), Vintage rings, Kate Spade bracelet, No brand scarf (from Nepal)

I wore this outfit for my birthday lunch a few weeks ago at Dirty French. The food was seriously amazing, I would recommend it for any special occasion! Fitting with the chic vibe of the restaurant, I dressed the part in a high-waisted skirt with leather pockets and a classic black and white jacket, and finished the look with lace tights and a feminine bag. I'm also rocking my new Jil Sander Navy boots that I scored on sale at Steven Alan, perfect for the transitional weather between winter and spring.

Playing with Lengths: Long Coat and Shorts








Zara coat, Vintage shirt, Dazzle shorts, Zara boots, Ochirly bag (from China)

Taking advantage of Spring coat season with my favorite pink Zara coat, paired with a men's vintage shirt and lace shorts. I like the juxaposition of lengths in this outfit, and this is one of those rare times of year where wearing a coat with shorts actually works perfectly weather-wise!
