Lately, I have been trying out crop tops and matching two-pieces more and more. It’s new and exciting for me but I’ve found when wearing the right pieces, these slightly intimidating styles can look really cute and feminine. I also think the reason I love two-piece outfits is because more often than not, they can be worn separately. That said, I definitely plan to remix these two pieces sooner than later, so stay tuned!
The other day I popped into Bloomingdales because I was feeling very blah about my wardrobe and wanted to add some more colorful pieces to my closet. So I picked up a handful of really cute, patterned rompers, colorful dresses and this incredibly bright and flirty skirt from Aqua. I was initially drawn to this skirt because of it’s bold color, accentuated pleats and neoprene material, and because I don’t have a lot of pink in my closet, I decided to go out on a limb and purchase it for fun. I had a great time styling it up, and it didn’t hurt that I had an amazing view as my backdrop.

Milkmaid Braid Tutorial:
Step 1: Texturize your hair with hair powder and dry shampoo
Admittedly, I’ve only worn this skirt once before, but I LOVE it so much – the pattern, the material, everything – but for some reason, I never reach for it when getting dressed up. I tried to figure out why I haven’t worn it more often and I think it’s a combination of the length and the fact that the pattern is so bold. It feels really dressy and is quite the statement piece, but when styled a certain way, I think it could become more of a frequently worn piece in my wardrobe.
So, with that said, I decided to style it four different ways in an attempt to make it feel a bit more wearable. I kept all the accessories the same (minus the hat in two of the looks), and just varied the tops. I had so much shooting these outfits because this skirt is the best twirling skirt ever.

Hello, hello! Today’s post is all about these ripped jeans I found at Zara not too long ago. It’s safe to say that I absolutely love them and have been living in them ever since. They are the perfect length, they have the perfect amount of rips and holes in the knees and have just the right amount of 90s style infused into them. I love how they look with a pair of pointy pumps, or with a pair of sleek black leather mules – it makes me feel like I am back in 1996! Anyway, this is a style I can see myself wearing often because it’s effortless and comfortable and can transition easily from casual meetings to happy hour with friends.
Today’s post is all about strapless dress style! I feel like I have a love/hate relationship with strapless dresses because I am alway yanking them up, or I feel like I am baring too much shoulder and chest. But, in the end, I still think the style is really pretty, and therefore cave every time.
With that said, truth be told, I have not worn either of these dresses before, however, I always admire them when I see them hanging in my closet. I guess I have just not had the right occasion to wear them out, but seeing that it’s getting to be really warm in New York and there are a lot of upcoming weddings and parties on my agenda, what better time than to break out the strapless dresses!
