Summer is obviously long gone. And I can’t believe these pictures were snapped just a few weeks ago. With winter basically slapping us in the face with its entrance just a few days ago, I’ve been longing even more so for these Indian Summer type of days that tease us here and there. I miss not wearing tights! But this suede skirt is still quite the staple in my closet. I pair it with plaid or something extra dressy on top. With sneakers or boots. With a blazer or a denim jacket. I’m always into the idea of being leggy in the winter, and this skirt is perfect for just that.
Picked up this little black skirt during NYFW and ever since then it’s quickly turned into one of my top outfit building staples. Not sure how I survived without one for so long. It can be dressy for night with something floaty and sheer on top or played down with a graphic sweater like this. I dig the appeal of the peplum shaped flare at the bottom. Anything that draws attention to the legs is perfectly fine with me.
Snapped this look up quickly after work in Bryant Park, just a few blocks from my office. One of my favorite people watching spots in the city. It absolutely glows during Twilight and the trees that line the walkways seem to come to life. My heart flutters every time I’m here just as much as the very first day I visited.
Not to long ago, my sister and I shot with the super talented and lovely photographer Emma Kepley. We did a sister-sister themed photo shoot with her, focused on our personal style and the way my sis and I sort of “bounce” off one another. I couldn’t live without my little Nat; she’s my best friend! Seriously, we have both grown so much together throughout our years and have supported each other so much when we both moved to the east coast over two years ago. My beautiful sister Natalie inspires me each and every day with her effortlessness and good naturedness. We always laugh together and we just get each other on just about everything. There really is no other person that I feel like I share the same brain with. Thanks Natalie for being my best bud and partner in crime, and thank you Emma for capturing us in our favorite city together. We had so much fun bopping around from location to location this fine Sunday afternoon, which ended with Mexican food to go along with some good old boy talk! This is just part 1, so look out for more to come! Check out Emma’s photo blog here.
I’m super excited to be a part of a fun fall collaboration with Free People, Thermal Nation. The We The Free Kyoto Cuff Thermal is one of Free People’s best selling thermals within their ever growing collection of sweet designs. Ever since I discovered Free People oh so many years ago, I’ve been obsessed with the limitless ways one could wear the famous Free People thermal. I’m not one to just throw on a single piece and go . . . there’s always got to be some sort of layering element thrown in for that extra dimension kick. I discovered this awesome tunic (which I cut shorter into a blouse length) to layer over my thermal. The funky pattern on the top perfectly complements the crazy cuff design on the thermal. The layering was mild enough for the beautiful weather we happened to have in Brooklyn this day, yet tough enough to keep me warm during the chilly environment at the Broadway venue we went to go see Romeo and Juliet at, starring Orlando Bloom. Not that Orlando was not already hot enough to keep anyone from putting on their jackets. The man’s short, but damn can he pull off that Romeo character well.
A bunch of other sweet bloggers are taking part in Thermal Nation, so make sure to check out their looks that will be debuting throughout the upcoming days with the hashtag #FPThermalNation
