Good morning, everyone! Can you believe it’s the first Monday of the new year? I’m excited for what’s to come in 2015 but so very thankful for what 2014 brought me, which included my sweet boyfriend, Casey. He’s quite a gem and I feel so lucky to have him in my life. I posted about him being a saint here, because when we took these photos, it was FREEZING outside. Poor guy didn’t have gloves on and let me tell you, the wind coming off the water was brutal. I can handle cold weather, but when you involve  crazy wind, no thank you. He patiently shot and reshot until I got what I wanted photo-wise, and kept a smile on his face for most of it. My Dad is the same way – patient and supportive. Thank goodness for these two amazing men in my life.

Can you tell by the look on my face that I’m freezing? Haha, I was trying so hard to keep it together! Oh, what I will do for a good photograph!

As you can see, I am desperately trying to hold my hair down and keep it from blowing straight up or across my face. I’m sure I looked insane to any bystanders, especially when I took off my jacket, but I really wanted to show you guys my sweater! :)

Christine-Cameron-Hudson-River-Park-Over-the-Weekend-My-Style-Pill4

This past Saturday morning I was up by 7:30AM. I’m not a morning person by nature, but I have to say I really enjoyed the quiet time to myself, where nothing was required of me besides sitting on the couch, sipping coffee and watching Friends reruns. I eventually met a friend for breakfast at 10:30 then ran some errands in Soho. Afterward, Casey and I went for a bike ride along the Hudson River down to Battery Park where we sat in the grass, enjoyed the warm weather and played with the new Hyperlapse app. Have you tried it? It’s super fun. Later that evening we went and saw The Skeleton Twins at the Angelika, then went grocery shopping for the upcoming week. What a wild Saturday night, right? As much as I love to be social and go out with friends, I also love spending a quiet night in, organizing/tidying up the apartment, prepping food for the week and getting a good night’s sleep.

Sunday was spent sipping coffee, riding bikes again, and cooking dinner at home. All is all, the weekend was fairly low key but felt nice and productive. What did you guys do? xo

Fashion-Week-2014-My-Style-Pill-Christine-Cameron3

Lincoln Center, in all it’s glory.

Happy Wednesday, everyone! For some reason this week feels like it’s passing by fairly slowly. But not necessarily in a bad way. Just each day seems so full, from early mornings to late nights, yet I don’t feel overwhelmed by it, just aware that it’s still only Wednesday. Does that make sense?

That said, I am happy it’s Wednesday, because tonight is my Marimekko event, which I will be hosting from 5-8 at their 5th avenue flagship store on the corner of 23rd street. Please feel free to swing by and say hi! Just say my name, Christine Cameron / My Style Pill, at the door. It will be a blast.

I am also looking forward to Thursday, because it’s a very special day for me (more to come on that tomorrow) and then of course Friday is always great because it means the weekend is just a hop, skip and jump away. However, while we wait for our beloved Saturday and Sunday to roll around, here are my photos from this past weekend. I know they are a little late. But better late than never, right?!

The other part of my weekend consisted of a long walk along the East River with two of my close friends and a 9-month-old puppy my friend is temporarily fostering. Above is a picture of her. She is named Freyja (pronounced Fray-yah) and is the sweetest thing. She loves other dogs and really just needs a stable, loving environment and permanent home. She is up for adoption, so if you are interested, email me at mystylepill@gmail.com or leave a comment below and I can help you get in touch with the rescue organization that found her. To learn more about this little pup, view her page HERE. xo

Dress: Donna Morgan / Necklace: J.Crew (old) / Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim (this color is no longer available, but this fuschia color is gorgeous! / Shoes: Casadei (I bought these heels on Gilt years ago, but they still have the style available in this lipstick red color. Perfect for fall!)

Earlier this summer, I did a photo shoot with the brand Donna Morgan, which is an online shop that offers a great selection of extremely versatile dresses that are easy to style, and retail under $200. I first shared about this project back in June when I showed how I styled this pretty summer maxi from day to night (also worn here). But now with fall upon us, I thought it was season-appropriate to share the second part of the shoot, which shows how I transitioned this little black dress from day to night by using pieces from my own closet.

Jacket: IRO (I scored this jacket majorly on sale but this inky-hued, deep purple version is also pretty stunning.) / Necklace: Bauble Bar (gift) / Bag: J.Crew / Shoes: Schutz (old, but similar options here and here)

The thing about a LBD is, it can be worn alone and still look amazing because it represents a polished, chic look, perfect for the office or happy hour, depending on the length and cut of course. :) But sometimes it’s fun to change it up a bit. So for instance, an easy way to create a daytime look is to try and keep the colors a bit brighter to lighten up the look of the dress. In this case, I used a punchy neon bag and pretty lavender shoes. Then for evening styles, I opted for more bold and striking pieces, such as a patterned leopard coat or an edgy maroon leather jacket. xo

P.S. Looking for some great versatile dresses for fall? You’re in luck! Donna Morgan is now offering 15% off the site with the code MSP0915, valid from 9/4-9/6! Happy shopping! xo

This past weekend I played tour guide with Casey and took him all around Seattle. It was his first time visiting so, of course, we checked out all the classic sites such as the Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square and Alki Beach to just name a few. Tonight we are going to a Mariners’ game with my family and tomorrow, which is his last day, we’re going kayaking on Lake Union then having dinner at The Pink Door before I have to take him to the airport so he can catch his red eye flight back to New York. I will be staying here a bit longer since I have a bachelorette party in Whistler this coming weekend, but am hoping to have some more great photos to share for the next “Over the Weekend” post!

Seattle in the summer never fails to dazzle me and this trip has been no different. If you ever have a chance to visit, I highly recommend it! xo

Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill-Forever-21-Styling3

For those of you just joining us, here’s a quick recap of the collaboration I am working on with Forever 21. I was recently asked to create three looks that illustrate different parts of my day to day, so I decided to pinpoint the main aspects of my work life. The first look, which you can see here, is what I would wear to a professional meeting in midtown. The second outfit, shown in this post, is a perfect example of what I wear when working as a personal stylist, which is another part of my profession in fashion. When I’m consulting women and their wardrobes, or out shopping with them, I like to be comfortable in what I’m wearing. There can be a lot of walking and schleping clothing, which in the summer months, when it’s so hot in New York,  I love to wear loose fitting clothing, so a flowy dress like this one becomes the perfect uniform for me.
