This vintage-inspired look will be your most charming option for whatever it is on your agenda.

Red Threads

Happy Tuesday everyone,

I am loving the look of scarves these days, rather around the neck, as a belt, around a hat or in the hair, they add a certain je ne sais quoi. This one in particular has an equestrian look to it, the brown tones mixed with the red are so elegant. Originally I was going to wear a red shoe but then decided to pull from the brown so I added my calf hair booties for that unexpected punch. No matter, it's still all about this scarf for me. I went from having it around my neck to tying it around my head and you are probably going to see me wearing this look at least a few times this summer as I play around with this accessory. Today I decided to wear sleek white wide-leg pants and this red and white striped off the shoulder top, another popular look this summer. Just a red belt, my purse, a little jewelry and the look is complete. Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by. Shop today's look below:

XOXO,

Hi everyone,
I'm kind of over the winter clothes so, I am starting to incorporate some new spring stuff into my looks. As the seasons change, I am finding myself drawn a little more to color then I normally would be. I'm not quite sure if it's a permanent thing or if it's just giving me a little lift after the winter. I guess we will see how it goes. 

This week is fashion week in New York and I am so excited to be attending some of the shows and head out for some fun with friends. I will be posting on Instagram (@northofmanhattan) and snap (@laurrecc), so I hope you will follow along to see what's going on. As always, feel free to comment and if there is anything in particular you would like to see, please let me know.

Love Lauren

              Free People Flares/ Trilogy by Michael McCollum Fur

Flare denim is one of the biggest break out trends of fashion month and I could not be happier. While many people are not a fan of the flare it is actually one of my favorites. I find that the silhouette actually makes me feel a lot taller and 'leggier'. This pair of high-wasited, retro-looking jeans are an older version from Free People, but still a favorite purchase of mine. I am taking it back to the '70s today, pairing them with a large fur and tucked in turtleneck. Fur and leather go hand in hand so pieces that mix both work well together. I love the look this leather-trimmed baseball cap brings to the outfit…chic yet laid back.
