Class is in Session

When I think about back to school season, I immediately think: Autumn leaves, hoodies, boots, pumpkin spice everything, and cozy cooler weather. I fall in love with my city all over again.

New York Fall hasn’t been lasting too long in recent years, so I like to plan out my outfits as fast as I can and go apple picking before it’s too late/cold!  Current temp: still humid as F, aka bad news! Good news is: There’s still time!

A man’s hoodie goes a long way! Literally. This is still one of my very favorite hoodies in my personal collection. I’m so happy its still in great shape!

For today’s outfit, I chose to bring out the greens and compliment all the other colors and my legs of course with this olive green mini. I accessorized with a small and grey handbag.

Before my trip to El Salvador this Summer (a post in the near future, stay tuned!) I went to Target for essentials -and this trip to Target ended like all the rest:  straight to the women’s clothing and shoe department. It wasn’t love at first sight with these platform oxfords, but something told me to give it a try. I walked out of my comfort zone and into a new shoe trend! I actually cannot stop wearing them! They were perfect for this back to school inspired outfit! Don’t you think?

As feminine as my outfits have been in the past, I’m really loving the influence men’s fashion has had on my everyday style.

Finally to top it ALL off, – a leather jacket. Invest and save on the one of your dreams because I promise you will revisit this timeless staple over and over again!

What Fall trends are you looking forward to?

What are some style staples you’re working with this season?

Sheer Mystery

You ask what am I doing with an overcoat in the middle of the Summer? Whatever floats your boat, or should I say coat? L-O-L. It’s the perfect Summer coat: sheer, light, and full of dramas (aka the duster).

What’s lying underneath? A swimsuit turned bodysuit. Summer Fridays are in full effect at work and who knows where the early exit will lead you. Pool parties are a thing in the city, so why not dive right in after you punch out? I decorated my lower half in light denim flares. Light blue denim is not discreet and demands attention so find a pair that ARE flattering to your body type.

I am loving the gold chain trend this season. For this one, I had to contact a few sisters for it, but it was all worth it in the end. 4 chainz to fill up the chest was my goal. More is more this Summer and so I topped off the look with my staple gold hoops. Oh yeah and this season’s obsession, the DVF sandals. 🙂

What are you wearing to stand out on these last days of Summer?
