Power Pieces

The pants we once used to throw on over gym shorts have become a covetable catwalk item.


Hi Everyone!!

It's almost the weekend again, I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday. Unfortunately, I spent most of it working but that's ok, it's for the future., other than that I spent what was left with family and friends. I'm looking forward to getting back down to the shore and plans are in the making. We have been going as a family to Long Beach Island, New Jersey since I was a child. LBI is just so beautiful, relaxing and a place we can all get together and just hang out in a pair of shorts and a tee, go for a bike ride, happy hour or to the beach…I cannot wait.

Today's outfit is a combination of old and new. I have on a white tee that I paired with a blush vest and leather wrap necklace I borrowed from my mom. I love the vibe of these three pieces together…very cool yet still chic. I finally got my hands on a pair of cropped flare jeans. I found this pair at H&M. I love the raw hem (and the price makes them even better). This style pant looks great with tailored pieces and block heels for an off-duty denim style. Pure Jeanius. 

Pattern Play

This is the kind of summer dress we all search for. It can be worn just about anywhere…from a festival, to dinner, and during the day with sandals. The geometric pattern in pale blush on this mini is playful and light hearted and detailed with delicate straps and ruffles. If you are not into shorter dresses it is also available in an ankle length version. You literally cannot go wrong.

If you remember from a previous Instagram post I had ordered these sandals and they were way too small. I re-ordered them because I loved them so much and went an entire size bigger…and thank goodness I did because they just fit. These pink and orange leather crisscross strap sandals from MSGM match almost to perfect, and the royal blue in the straps adds a little extra touch. These also are available in white with green and black with yellow. Shop below:

And just like that….BOOM… it's Monday again. 

I love graphic tee's for the summer but when the weather starts to cool down I like to look for graphic sweatshirts and other layering pieces for the fall and winter. These pullovers (that come in various styles) can be our answer to in-between-seasons dressing, but more importantly statement pieces that can be paired with unexpected separates. 

I paired this sweatshirt from MSGM with a checkered, knit skirt from Derek Lam (one of my favorites.) I think it adds a really cool element to this look, not to mention the color red is always so striking.  Shop more from this look below. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
