Tag "H&M"


Photo by Falcon Griffith

I have lived in New York for eleven and a half years now, which is crazy to think about. Over the years, I have found that I’ve acquired my favorite spots to do things such as work, eat, drink and shop, so when StyleCaster and H&M asked to collaborate with me on a project sharing my favorite haunts, I was definitely down to share! Since I live downtown, I decided to focus on the West Village and Meatpacking District as my focal points to keep it local and easy to navigate. My mini city diary guide is now live on StyleCaster so if you’d like to see and read more, click HERE! Thanks for following along! xo

Just a few photos taken last week by Lydia. I wore this outfit to run some errands before the craze of fashion week began. I find that I tend to gravitate towards some version of this type of ensemble when I am out and about and need to be comfortable but still want to look put together. So I opt for wedge sneakers, skinny jeans or pants, a comfy oversized sweater and of course, a large enough bag to fit my entire life. Seems to fit the bill every time! xo

I haven’t worn this whimsical skirt since this post back in 2011, but thanks to Helena who spotted this adorable version at an Anthropologie in Palm Beach, I was reminded of how much I love my own tulle skirt I bought at H&M years ago. I had recently sent it home to live at my parent’s house since I didn’t seem to be wearing it much, but after pulling it out from way back in the closet, I happily styled it up and had my very own Carrie Bradshaw moment. xo

DSC_0031The other day I saw this sheer, long flowy dress on my good friend Krystal’s blog and loved how she paired it with an army jacket and suede ankle boots. It got me thinking that sheer, summery dresses don’t always or only have to be worn just in the summertime, but can be quite versatile and brought out during slightly crisper weather as well. I think you could even get away with a similar look if you slipped on some tights underneath to keep warm once the temperature really starts to drop.

Anyway, what it comes down to is this: I am a huge romantic at heart. I love cheesy, girly, mushy movies, and sweet, thoughtful gestures, and flowers out of the blue, and love notes and all the little things that make your heart and stomach go flippity flop. So, when I saw this dress (on sale for $15!) I felt like it embodied romance and romantical ideals (yes, romantical) with its sweet pink color, sheer layers and pretty detailing around the neckline. And, I absolutely love how it swishes and floats around me when I walk down the street.

Needless to say, I felt very girly and feminine in this dress, but not wanting to go overboard with a sugary sweet look, I paired it with a tougher, more structured utilitarian jacket, along with a tartan plaid button down (something else I saw on Krystal’s blog), a classic braided belt, striped socks (obviously) and some flat rustic-looking ankle boots, in order to avoid making the dress seem too light and summery. The finishing touch was my new favorite F21 find, which added some much needed sparkle. After all, you can never go wrong with wearing diamonds. xoxo

Sorry for being a bit MIA this week, but I promise there is a lot more fun content to come soon! In the meantime, here are a few photos from what I wore to IFB last week. I am in love with the print and the “leather” detailing. :) xoxo


The other night I partook in a very cool photo shoot along side Keiko, Lindsey, Tess, and Helena, who I finally got to meet! She is the beautiful girl behind the lovely blog, Brooklyn Blonde, and let me tell you, she is just as lovely in person. (She was the one that actually inspired me to buy the skirt I’m wearing, which I got it on sale at ASOS for $18, after I first saw her wear it here.) I just have to say, I feel so lucky to have met so many wonderful and inspiring women in this industry and be a part of so many amazing opportunities. I’m a lucky girl. xoxo

This past week I indulged in some much needed R&R with my family (and Barney of course) in Northern California, where we spent time taking long walks along the water, tasting amazing wine, eating fresh, home-cooked meals, and lounging around reading and play solitaire (on my new iPhone!) It was such a wonderful vacation and I definitely took advantage of the lovely scenery for some outfit shots, which you will see all this week, so stay tuned! xoxo



{ Outfit note: I love the dress that ModCloth named the “My Style Pill” dress and have found that it is the perfect piece for summer. Therefore, I have been trying to work it into my wardrobe every way possible, because it is just that comfortable and cute. I first wore it here, but this time around, I layered this tulle skirt over it to create it into a top. The key to layering with pieces like this, especially for dresses that already have a built in waist, is to make sure that the bottom you are using as the overlay piece, is either at, or above that waist, so that it creates a seamless silhouette/line between the bottom and “top.” Et, volia: a new outfit! }


{ Loving my new turquoise Birthday earrings. So sculptural and unique. Thank you to Alison and Elizabeth for such a lovely present, I adore them. :) }

Let me ask you…how do you guys feel about cable knit sweaters? Or any thick knit sweaters for that matter? I love this version from J.Crew (it’s a pretty tan/oatmeal color) but am still on the fence about whether or not I think it’s actually flattering. The problem being, I literally feel thicker when I wear it, like an inch or two has been added to my upper half. And I don’t feel comfortable layering anything under it because that adds even more bulk. (And you know I like to get my layering on.) It really is a love/hate relationship. Do you have any pieces in your closet that fit this description?



On another note, aren’t you happy it’s Friday? I sure am. Have a wonderful weekend, friends! xoxo
