Storm King

In the middle of a crazy week, sometimes you need a B R E A K. Even the smallest getaways can become a great escape from that pile of work that just never seems to disappear. At Storm King, an outdoor art exhibition in New Windsor, New York about an hour from the City, I discovered a taste of art and nature I never knew I needed. A breath of fresh air to help cope with city polluted thoughts that can drag you down in your everyday life. It was the most relaxed and calm I have felt in a while.

I paired my zen outlook with a messy air dried bun, comfortable jeans, a white tee and Converse sneakers. The cardigan or what I like to call a coatigan was the thrift shop finishing touch: the vibrant colors reminded me so much of the Fall and it was warm enough to throw on and go. The fringe was on- trend and gave an added playfulness to the outfit.

I enjoyed my day trip to the Storm King Art Center. I highly recommend it if you love art, nature, and maybe even a hike if you’re feeling adventurous!

What are some of your favorite getaways?

Leather (Mini) Stroll

…on a Saturday afternoon. My feet were still burning from the day/night before so I took a break and paired my leather mini and bodysuit (again) with one my favs, Converse low tops. Thinking of purchasing high tops for more of these low key Summer weekends, what do you think?

CHANEL-O!

This past weekend I popped into the Chanel Exhibit, N°5 In A New Light on 14th street, by the famous High Line of New York City. Chanel’s N°5 fragrance was built through layers of creation, cultivation, composition, abstraction and revelation.  With science and in art, visitors and Chanel fans like myself got to see every one of those layers. Here are some of the photos I’d like to share with you and what I wore (on a Sunday)!

How is everyone’s week coming along? Any Memorial Day weekend plans?

Floral A Flare

Happy Monday!

When we think about 70’s fashion, we envision bell bottoms, bold prints, and very high wedge sandals. I took all three of these images and made it into one modern day outfit. I paired it with a biker jacket and classic wayfarers for a fresh spin on my otherwise very retro look.

How do you think I pulled off my second 70’s groovy-ness? What Spring trends have you tried lately?

Hope everyone has a groovy week!

Keeping the Spark Alive…

…In the Daytime

Do you ever feel so accustomed to your 9-5 grind, that the wear down reflects your clothing? Whether you love your day job or not, sometimes getting dressed for work becomes work. Yes, even I get a little uninspired. It seems like spring has sprung everywhere, but the East Coast and you just can’t help feeling gloomy.

So, today’s outfit I decided to add a little sparkle to my ensemble. My jacket literally sparkled, covered in tiny and subtle, light reflecting sparkles. I love a well rounded peplum like this one I found for a steal at Forever 21, just under $35. Needless to say I didn’t stop there with the sparkles. My rings were blinged out, and my shoes shined bright like a diamond. However, I made sure my pencil skirt was sleek and simple for a sophisticated finish.

I’m praying that it can warm up for good -for some more open toe, leg baring situation.

How do you all think I pulled off daytime sparkle? Would you wear sparkle accents or sequins to the office?
