The Blueprint

I want it to be warm badly, enough to wear dresses and skirts without tights, but for now that’s the only thing I can do! Here I am in a throwback from last summer, wore it with the same boots from the outfit before I went to Tulum. The boots give it a 70’s vibe yet again although the dress itself screams vintage, that’s cause I got it at Crossroads Trading. They have so many great selections from all eras!

Oh Tulum, why couldn’t you rub off that warmth on me so I can rub it off on New York? As I’m sitting on the train writing this (the best time to gather my thoughts for outfit posts) everyone is wearing black in this car! I’m the only one in color! Winter what have you done?!
Guys and gals, it’s Spring! It’s okay to wear color!

Mod-ri Gras

It’s been a week since Fat Tuesday, but finally here is my Mardi Gras look. Instead of decorating the office with hearts all over for Valentine’s Day I went a tad bit more festive this year with purple, green and gold. There is something about decorating that boosts up my mood instantly. Mardi Gras is not just for party animals, but a way to celebrate life and enjoy it with other people. What holiday isn’t about celebrating life really? This Winter, oh you Winter -has not been an easy one, but I put all that aside and went with a purple mini which for me isn’t so mini (remember I’m 5 feet and a little something), a new turtleneck to add to the family, and some knee high boots for a complete mod look. Can’t forget the beautiful masks we played around with that were provided by my lovely co-worker.

How do you all think I pulled off the masked mod look?

Match Made In Heaven

It’s been too cold (freezing actually) in New York, and my photographer has been working on some other projects lately and will be for another week or so, but I’m finally back! The best way to improvise with such tragic conditions is to share my daily outfits from inside my apartment, which is still under renovations. I have very little furniture to move around and can easily use any wall for a back drop! (And he takes good photos too).
For a late night friend’s birthday dinner, I wore a very cool piece from H&M. Really, I fell in love with the thumb hole at the end of the sleeves and so I had to have it. It sort of looked like boxing gloves and made me feel real tough wearing it. Surprisingly this is something I can see myself wearing over and over again. My style is written all over it: black, has a turtleneck and fits like a glove.
How are you all on the East Coast surviving the cold?
What has been your go to clothing item this Winter?
