Berry-Liciously Cold

Wintertime calls for layering up and keeping warm, but that doesn’t mean you have to look like a walking snuggie. That’s why when it’s brick out I take advantage of the turtleneck.

The turtleneck is the fool proof cold weather staple, you’ll almost always look put together in one. I own a variety of colors and about 5 black ones, but today I chose a deep berry that was lightweight and still covered all of my neck. Adding a matching lip was a fun change to my usual nude self. The skirt was right up my alley in length, long enough so that every inch of my body kept warm between neck and toes. Who says you can’t look sexy covered up?

The longer the coat the more dramatic the outfit, and that I’m okay with. I’m also debuting my longer locks, what do you think?

Hope everyone is staying warm here on the east coast. What are your go to outerwear choices?

Happy Friday!

I Believe I Can Fly

…in my Loeffler Randall boyfriend cape. The best thing about Fall is the different jackets, cardigans, and capes you can throw on over your outfit and make it a part of your outfit. Outerwear doesn’t have to be just a piece of clothing to protect you from the up and down weather, let it be a fashion statement too. Leave it on and show it off. 🙂

Happy Hump Day!

A Fresh Cut

To start the Fall/Winter season.

This weekend for a quick gallery visit and a nail art party with Jamberry, I wore one of my many turtleneck dresses and an amazing vintage find from ebay, Chanel riding boots!

How do you like my shiny leopard nails?

Please Me…

That’s the color of my lipstick .

A blazer over a bodysuit under what I like to call ‘real boy’ shorts and open toe booties is my definition of office style with a side street.  I am always trying to find a balance between the two.

How do you think I pulled off this look? Would you wear bermuda shorts to the office?

Red Alert

Last week I ended the week in my second favorite color: red. Red is vibrant, happy and passionate. I definitely feel a great amount of energy when I wear red. This American Apparel dress comes in over 5 colors to choose from, which to me is another feeling waiting to be felt! Should I get black, blue or nude? Dark, calm or pure?

How do you feel in your favorite color? Are you feeling the heat NYC?

Goodbye Monday!

Fine Wine

Nothing like fine wine to end the week right.

This color is very close to Pantone‘s color of the year. I love red so I was happy to find out that Marsala (earthy wine red) was this year’s go to hue. Burgundy in Spring? Yes, please.

What do you think about the color of the year? Will you rock it?

Have a lovely weekend!
