Coachella

Once again, I am back from a mini hiatus, but this spring will be full of many fabulous, fashionable posts.  Both Coachella weekends have come to an end and it was not only an incredible time for music, but also for fashion.  Sadly, I did not make it to Coachella this year (and I am slightly depressed about it) so this post is dedicated to the stylish women of Coachella.  This has been a confusing and chilly spring thus far and I don’t know about you but I am seriously ready to break out the cropped tops, minis, and jean shorts! Festival style is the perfect teaser for summer style!

Nothing better than leather in 100 degree heat.  But really she does look fabulous!

The Trusty Sweatshirt

I was cleaning out the attic at my parents house and came across an old Hanes sweatshirt I bought from a thrift store in high school.  I have practically been living in the sweatshirt since I rediscovered this treasure.  I have mixed and matched it with skirts, skinnies, my beloved leather joggers and finally workwear.  So one work day morning, when getting out of bed was particularly impossible, it should come as no surprise to you that I turned to my trusty sweatshirt.  I love pushing the boundaries of work wear and redefining pieces that might otherwise be overlooked.  While rocking a sweatshirt to work is not for every office, know that it can be done by dressing it up with complimentary accessories and garments.

Perforated Perfection

I don’t think it is any secret that I love leather!  I think leather is the best addition to any ensemble, and really the more leather the better.  Leather adds depth, edge and excitement to any look.  I like to experiment with different leather articles and accessories, as well as different leather textures and shapes.  The options are endless!  One of my favorite recent purchases is this perforated leather shift dress, which is perfect for work and weekend.  Experiment and embrace leather (vegan or real).

Oversized Sweater

This past Saturday I explored the Monroe Street Market in Brookland and visited the Sartorialist’s Q&A/book signing.  For this super chilly Saturday, I turned to my new favorite oversized sweater.  I recently tried to clean out my closet and got overwhelmed very quickly and had to stop, but before I did I realized a lot of my wardrobe is oversized.  My go to pairing is an oversized top with skinnies of some kind, but an oversized top can work with different silhouettes and articles of clothing.  Try pairing an oversized top with a skater skirt, maxi, or boyfriend jeans.  Experiment with volume and fabrics and find your cozy, stylish weekend go to ensemble.

New York Fashion Week (pt 1)

In case you missed my obsessive instagrams and tweets, I attended the first two days of New York Fashion Week and it was one of the most incredible experiences EVER!  I saw some beautiful, life changing fashion shows & presentations and was endlessly inspired by the unparalleled street style that can only be witnessed at Fashion Week.  Stay tuned all week for a rundown of my fashion week experience with runway pics from Tadashi Shoji, Rebecca Minkoff and Honor, exclusive looks from the Novis and Tome presentations, as well as party pics and some phenomenal celebrity sightings!  To start off my week of coverage check out what I wore to Day Two of Fashion Week.

Denim Vest Take Two

Denim outwear is timeless and fabulous.  This is not my first post dedicated to the denim vest (check the other post out here) and I don’t think it will be my last (sorry I’m not sorry).  I love this piece because it is perfect for layering, enhancing an outfit and adding a little spice to any ensemble.  Throw a denim vest over a dress, pair it with some more denim or let it stand alone as top, however you decide to wear it make sure you rock it with confidence and it will undoubtedly be spectacular.

The vest is no longer an accent piece or accessory, but instead the main attraction
