Every season, there comes a trend that catches your eye and runs away with your closet. I present to you my trend crush, the lace up bodysuit. Lately I’ve been adding flirty touches to an otherwise very sexy look. This trend is everywhere, it’s the go-to item for the laid back fashionably savvy. You can wear it with jeans, (as per muah) a pencil skirt, an a line skirt or whatever bottom you wish. I went back to my distressed Topshop denim because to tell you the truth it’s the only pair of denim I have that are high rise and that’s the look I was going for, a pair of Nike sneakers -just do it! Then I topped it off with my BFF- best faux fur.
As you know I’m not afraid to try out trends of the moment. I always try to make sure it still feels like me and my personal style. You never want to be amongst the sheep, letting the trend wear you or simply copying (gasp!) straight from someone else’s outfit. Always wear something that feels natural to you and what you like.
What’s your favorite trend this season?
Are you adding fur to your Winter wardrobe? Are you using it to cover up those revealing bodysuits? 😉

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!
…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?
In honor of Denim Day I wore one of my favorite denim brands for all the things I love in a pair of jeans: a fit for the curvaceous figure , a shorter length (where I can skip a visit to the tailor), and a wash that’s clean and classic. J BRAND jeans are every woman and man’s dream. #InMyJBRAND.
Taking advantage of this week’s warm weather in a knee length turtleneck dress, not one but two ways.
The first outfit is how I would normally walk to work everyday, in something flat for comfort. Usually I can brave the concrete jungle in 4 maybe even 5 inch heels, but lately I’ve been preserving my feet as much as I can (they can really take a beating in heels). My sister gave up one of her brand new beanies seconds before my day’s outfit photos and I quickly snatched it out of her hands. Perfect timing! I threw on MY beanie and played it cool for the camera. Thanks Mayger!
Taking off the beanie and my converse was the next step (the secret?) to get to outfit number two. A sexy side to the turtleneck dress that I paired with nude patent pumps and a long cardigan for the superwoman affect. American Apparel clothing is very versatile and I love them for that. I know I can do even more with the black one, I’m coming for ya!
Which of the two looks is your favorite? Are you a fan of American Apparel? I like to pass by on Halloween to see all the costume ideas the employees come up with just American Apparel pieces.
Another beautiful weekend! This time I spent my Saturday afternoon with friends bar hopping and enjoying the rest of the summer down at the Lower East Side. Summer calls for shorts, something I don’t have much of because I prefer dresses -the lady in me or just a lady who doesn’t want to feel like she’s gone commando, especially with the on trend booty cleavage denim that is simply unavoidable. I mean mine were short, but my privates weren’t hanging out! It’s been hard to shop for shorts or just traumatizing seeing all these young girls with their butts hanging out and they are oblivious to the fact that: “uh miss? Your a** is hanging out!” I’ll go back to my outfit of the day now. I paired my just about right length shorts with a black bodysuit, and my black chucks for the sometimes cool, laid back girl in me. I spent all week in heels and in New York City it can be a pain to bar hop in heels so I went flat and my feet were thankful. On the weekends if I come across an ideal mural or backdrop I take full advantage of it, during the work week I’m constrained to my workplace area making it difficult to explore the great streets New York has to offer.
A day in Jersey for a pre-Father’s Day get together called for the return of this olive Yellow is Gold by Sunshine and Shadow silk (yes, it will wrinkle throughout the day as much as you try to avoid it) mini shirt dress from Urban Outfitters. I remember the days in college where I always had to have something from Urban, sale or not. Now I probably look for more sales than anything, but one thing that hasn’t changed is always looking for something that’s going to last me a long time and that I get to wear day and night. In the past I’ve worn this dress with a thin belt and high heel sandals. The color can easily transition into fall to pair with booties or knee high boots. I kept it summer casual in my ShoeMint espadrilles and favorite floral clutch. I added some of my delicate jewels to freshen up the look. I’m loving the midi ring trend but when I have to wash my hands, every single one has to come off. It’s a great way to take care of your jewelry even if it’s just costume jewelry.
Leyla wanted to show off her new slip-ons from Payless and showed me how to pose in my pictures. She’s a natural. In exchange I joined her for some backyard fun.
How do you wear your shirt dresses?
